This book on Guillaume Coppier (1606 1674), the early 17th-century French traveler, indentured servant, colonist, mariner, moralist, baroque chronicler, antiquarian, humanist, sometime pirate and slaver of sorts, is essentially a reading of Coppier, the man and his chronicle. Coppiers Histoire et voyage des Indes Occidentales, et de plusieurs autres rgions maritimes, & esloignes (History and Voyage to the West Indies and to Several Other Maritime and Faraway Regions) was published in Lyon in 1645. Given its objective and context, this effortpart amateur historiography and translation and part novice commentary and interpretationis also a survey of past appraisals of Coppiers chronicle. Like all such endeavors, this essay informs on the essayist; it is a sort of voyage, and a long one at that.

This thrilling documentary is woven from the drama surrounding the life and death of James Riddle Hoffa, one of America's most publicized - yet least known - power brokers. For the first time it is revealed how Hoffa - the late president of the Teamsters Union - was tried for murder by the Mafia when he was barely out of his teens. Here for the first time you'll read how Hoffa made a Faustian bargain with the underworld; how the bargain catapulted him to power and riches; and how, like Faust, the bargain ultimately corrupted and destroyed him. The book also reveals how the Watergate White House stole the country's biggest union; how Hoffa built the underworld's biggest bank; and how the mobs used this bank to capture Las Vegas.

THEY COULD SURVIVE ANYTHING IN THE ARCTIC WILDERNESS--EXCEPT THE WHITE MAN. They were rich, the caribou were abundant. Their dogs were many and strong. The children in the tents were happy, and there was never any fear of going hungry. Then came the ruthless white man's civilization. And with it came slaughter of the herds, starvation of the flesh, and torture of the spirit.

If the Bible can be thought of as the grand story of God, many of its main characters are passionate and even desperate men and women. Jo Kadlecek introduces us to eight biblical women driven by their passion and desperation to seek out Jesus. She explores their stories in their cultural context, then draws out the lessons they hold for contemporary readers who are willing to let an encounter with Jesus change their lives. In studying these eight characters, readers will find new insights into the central character of God's great story--Jesus--and how he can transform their desperation and their passions and bring their lives new hope.
