Embarking on a homeschooling field trip to Central America is stressful enough, but add in perilous bridge crossings, trips to the hospital, and a lack of women's underwear, and you have the makings of an Adventure by Chicken Bus…a tale of one family, buckling under a mountain of debt, who sells all worldly possessions and hits the road.

 

Adventure by Chicken Bus demonstrates how to travel sustainably, but more importantly, how to nurture the next generation of environmentalists and social justice activists by exposing them to the conditions faced by those in the developing world.

From a remote monkey sanctuary tucked into an enclave on the Panama-Costa Rica frontier to the overdeveloped beaches of the Mayan Riviera, we endure chaotic border crossings, infections and injuries, learn about the history of the civil war in Nicaragua, visit UNESCO heritage sites, and hike the ancient Mayan temples of Tikal in Guatemala.

For the sake of safety, we plan our route down to the kilometer, navigating the region by chicken bus, an eye-opening mode of public transportation ubiquitous in the developing world. Along the way we re-connect with each other, re-kindle our commitment to the environment, recognize the privilege into which we were born, and become compassionate global citizens.

When Michelle Met the Queen is a charming story of how Michelle Obama's and Queen Elizabeth II's families linked with one another across time. After the first Queen Elizabeth of England's death, Britain became involved in the slave trade from Africa to the colonies.  First Lady Michelle Obama's great, great grandfather was a slave, and it was after many years of struggle and hardship that her family finally saw blacks gain freedom in the U.S.

Shelley and Pauline believe it is the responsibility of whites to expose the injustices perpetrated against people of color over the centuries, and to stand up for the resulting injustice and inequity we see today.  They know you will want copies of this interesting and timely story.

Look up at the stars, my friends. Have you ever wondered what if?
What if there is life out there?
What if all of those conspiracy theories were real?
What if a place existed where everything you wanted to believe was real?

Meet a young warrior gifted with an inner sight who can speak to spirits and animals.
Walk beside the Sabretooth, who is oath-bound to protect him.
Rescue an orphaned Polar Bear cub with undying loyalty.

If the Great War had not occurred during those fateful years of 1914-1918, four people from very different walks of life probably would have never crossed paths.  An impoverished Silesian Junker, a biergarten server from Essen, and two laborers from Pomerania were thrown together amid the fields of slaughter in northern France in March 1918.  From then on their lives seemed to be intertwined, meshed to cross in Silesia amid the German Civil War, in Latvia with the Freikorps and then in Northern Russia with the doomed White general Iudenich.

Don't I feel like a loser when I learn you're through with me.
It was news to everyone, especially to me.
Don't I feel pathetic, like there's something wrong with me.
She is far more beautiful than I could ever be.
I stand here null and solemn, though it must be written on my face,
that I've found before the world what you couldn't say to my face.
You blow right on by me with your new love, hand in hand.
So smug, haughty, and thoughtless.  You are not much of a man.
Filled with anger, through and through, I feel like I could drown.
I lift my glass and drink fast to chase the feeling down.
I close my eyes.  I still see your face.  Somehow I should have known.
You kill me inside with a passing glance, and now my heart grows cold.
So much time spent in a one sided love was wasted all on you.
Don't I feel like a loser for ever caring about you.

By Anne Rasico (Joyce)
