'Graffiti On My Soul' is a stunning spiritual suspense memoir which you will not be able to put down! It takes you to another time, another place, another life, which has faded from history but will not soon fade from your heart!

As a refreshing antidote to the sappy pretension and self-righteousness of EAT PRAY LOVE, I recommend the recent work by English Teacher X, TO TRAVEL HOPELESSLY, in which his five years abroad bring him absolutely no enlightenment whatsoever, and simply lead to more dissipation as he teaches English in 5 different countries in 5 years.

The recently released memoir In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond by Kim Justus, is a quick read that keeps you hook from the first page to the end. See inaflash.org or the Amazon/kindle listing for more information. Guaranteed to not be a waste of time!

Final Approach - Northwest Airlines Flight 650, Tragedy and Triumph

This the memoir of NW Airlines pilot Lyle Prouse who was busted for flying drunk. His arrest on March 8th of 1990 made headlines around the globe. Lyle was one of the first pilots to serve time in federal prison under a new federal law mandating alcohol consumption and allowable blood alcohol levels before flight.

Despite layers of sanctions that ensured he would never fly again, Lyle turned his life around and returned to Northwest where he retired as a 747 Captain on international flights, the top role of any commercial pilot.

His biography is a story of unlikely success and absolute failure with a redemption few are able to achieve. Captain Lyle Prouse flew jet fighters in Vietnam. His unlikely rise through the Marine Corps enlisted ranks to make officer would be difficult in today's Corps. He carried himself with honor through the dishonorable circumstances of his arrest. He became the butt of jokes from late night hosts Jay Leno and David Letterman.

The judge who sentenced Lyle to prison ultimately became his biggest supporter and pushed for a presidential pardon. In January of 2001 he received the "Executive Grant of Clemency" one of the last orders of business of outgoing President Bill Clinton.

The forward of Lyle's autobiography is beautifully written by Ted Koppel.

One of the reviewers is a Program Director at The Betty Ford Institute- He writes:

"This book is a great read and one that I find myself referring back to because of the wealth of hope and inspiration it contains!!"

*** HIGHLY RECOMMEND ***

'Everyone Knows Me But You' relates the story of a young boy with a disability who grows up in a wealthy but dysfunctional family. The author has an engaging conversational tone throughout the book.

The "Would-Be" Pioneers
This book is well worth your time. It has two parts. All true and historically based. The first part is a simple written story by a woman telling her story of when she was a young girl in the 1900's. Her and her parents left Indian Territory in the early 1900's to seek a new life in the Colorado mountains. On their journey, they stopped several times to help those in need. Times were very hard. They worked hard and lived hard. They worked on ranches in the Texas Panhandle and farmed the dusty plains. They didn't have much, but made the best of what they had and shared with others. Through injuries, struggles, illnesses and hardships, they persevered by their faith. They took nothing and made it into something. Even though they never made it to Colorado, they were content in all things and were richly blessed. We could all learn so much from them. The second part is a look further back in time of this family. It was a rich heritage that consisted of aristocrats, martyrs, felons, military heroes, frontiersmen, leaders of the communities, and common settlers who reached beyond their boundaries for a better life and freedom in America. It is amazing to read their stories and get a glimpse of what they had to endure; especially the struggles in every war that the early settlers had to fight in. We have lost a lot of the history through time. This book is very beneficial for all of us to know and understand what the common pioneers did to make America what it was and what it stood for.
