Description : Elliot has lived his first thirteen years confined to his home, incapacitated by fear. Now he’s out of pills, snow is falling, and his only safe person is missing. A terrifying thriller from Carnegie Medalist Kevin Brooks. From the moment of his birth, Elliot’s life has been governed by fear of almost everything, even of his own fear — a beast that holds him prisoner in his room. The beast is kept at bay, though not eliminated, with a daily regimen of pills. But on Christmas Eve, a mix-up at the pharmacy threatens to unleash the beast full force, and his mother must venture out in a raging snowstorm to a store that should be only minutes away. Hours later, when she still hasn’t returned, Elliot sees no choice but to push through his terror, leave the house, and hunt for her. What happens if the last of his medication wears off and the beast starts scratching at the doors of his mind? Everyone has a breaking point — will Elliot come to his? With plot twists and turns that keep readers on the edge of their seats, multi-award-winning author Kevin Brooks offers a high-suspense exploration of fear and what it means to truly be afraid.

Description : Thrown into a terrifying world she didn’t deserve, a small child becomes fractured by the demonic family she was born into as an innocent baby girl. Now faced with the many demons that hunt her, she fights for not only her safety and sanity but also for her survival, learning from the start that there are two types of people in the world; victims and survivors. With only the strength to survive and what she was forced to learn as a child, Stephanie fights through the years with the life she had been given and the only one she knows. If she was going to survive the Monsters who would soon find her, the only hope she had was to learn how to fight harder and more effectively if she was going to survive, but most of all she needed to learn “When to Run”. Her life was anything but normal and she couldn’t always see the danger coming from those lurking in the shadows, around the corner or the situations she was forced to struggle alone. She survived the worst or so she thought, never realizing that being “Born Scared” would be the one thing that could save her. Stephanie would learn to fight her trapped and horrid childhood with the evil that loomed within her family walls that no child should ever have to endure. After that it was up to her to fight the world, the fears that came with it, and the many evils that were thrust upon her along the way. Without understanding why, she would soon learn that her childhood experiences were nothing compared to what she would be up against living “Among the Guilty”.

Description : For those who feel as if they came into this world afraid, or whose child is fearful for no discernible reason and ask, "Why do I have this? Why is it happening to me or my child?" Born Scared provides answers. Through the use of fascinating case stories, hypnotherapist, Julia Ingram, demonstrates that when clients are prompted to go to the source of their fear, they find when and under what circumstances it was created. From there the path to recovery becomes evident and easy. Ingram's clients found the origin of fears, phobias, eating disorders, low self-esteem and other limiting beliefs. A seven year old boy, afraid to have his mother out of sight, even for a moment, discovered the source of the fear originated prior to his birth, when his mother was critically ill. A woman who felt extreme guilt, akin to survivors guilt, but with no idea why, discovered it began as she watched her twin brother slowly die during their first trimester in the womb. A young man believed he should never have been born until he realized he was conceived by rape and during the grueling months of his gestation heard his teenage mother being shamed for his very existence. Fans of Ingram's earlier books, the NY Times bestseller, The Messengers, and The Lost Sisterhood will not be disappointed. When she prompts her clients to go to the source of a problem, they will often regress further back than even their conception and report what they believe are past lives. A college student discovered the source of her fear of the dark and of closed spaces was a past life in which she was buried alive. A preteen girl found several lifetimes which explained her snake and bug phobias. What is astonishing, is that phobias were cured in a session or two, as compared to the lengthy and painful mainstream process of "exposure therapy." A woman with anorexia came to understand her compulsive need to eat as little as possible, when she recalled being in a concentration camp in her prior life. Along with the stories, the author describes the variety of therapeutic (non-drug) tools she uses to help her clients recover. In a chapter called The Brave Girl: A Micro-preemie Who Survived All Odds, Ingram urges parents of struggling children to explore the myriad of alternatives there are to medicating a still-developing brain. There is a surprising variety of reasons for eating disorders, as well as limiting beliefs and self-sabotage. But with each story, once the origin was discovered, the client was able to change and grow. The final chapter is a three-step process for dealing with anxiety which readers can try on their own, or options to pursue to find additional help. Born Scared offers a new way of looking at lifelong anxiety (or nipping a child's fears in the bud). It will help you be more compassionate towards yourself and those who suffer, and will bring hope to those who have been told, often unsympathetically, that their fears are irrational.

Description : Inger Hermann has taught RE to deprived children in three special schools in Stuttgart. These children come from a world of violence, abuse, deprivation, drug addiction and crime. Many of them are refugees from recent conflicts, in the Balkans and elsewhere; they are traumatized and damaged, and their language is foul almost beyond belief. In this book she describes her experiences with them and the way in which, even in these most unpromising of all circumstances, it is possible to help them to ask profound existential questions and even to take stumbling steps in exploring religious belief in God. As the TV announcers sometimes say, 'her programme contains strong language' and some of the scenes may be distressing to readers. But here is an authentic book about life in the raw, and Inger Hermann's account in its own way deserves to stand alongside Vincent Donovan's Christianity Rediscovered as a classic document of modern mission.

Description : This study is a thoughtful and important addition to an understanding of rural Texas and the nature of black settlements. ?Journal of Southern History "Thad Sitton and James H. Conrad have made an important contribution to African American and southern history with their study of communities fashioned by freedmen in the years after emancipation." ?Journal of American History "This book is the first of its kind....Blacks emerge as thinkers and actors on the stage; that is, they were not merely passive victims; rather, they made their own history by building their own communities and by becoming free farmers." ?James Smallwood, Professor Emeritus of History, Oklahoma State University In the decades following the Civil War, nearly a quarter of African Americans achieved a remarkable victory?they got their own land. While other ex-slaves and many poor whites became trapped in the exploitative sharecropping system, these independence-seeking individuals settled on pockets of unclaimed land that had been deemed too poor for farming and turned them into successful family farms. In these self-sufficient rural communities, often known as "freedom colonies," African Americans created a refuge from the discrimination and violence that routinely limited the opportunities of blacks in the Jim Crow South. Freedom Colonies is the first book to tell the story of these independent African American settlements. Thad Sitton and James Conrad focus on communities in Texas, where blacks achieved a higher percentage of land ownership than in any other state of the Deep South. The authors draw on a vast reservoir of ex-slave narratives, oral histories, written memoirs, and public records to describe how the freedom colonies formed and to recreate the lifeways of African Americans who made their living by farming or in skilled trades such as milling and blacksmithing. They also uncover the forces that led to the decline of the communities from the 1930s onward, including economic hard times and the greed of whites who found legal and illegal means of taking black-owned land. And they visit some of the remaining communities to discover how their independent way of life endures into the twenty-first century.

Description : In the late sixties, Establishment Hollywood was jarred awake by the smash box-office popularity of Bonnie & Clyde, 2001: A Space Odyssey, & Easy Rider--maverick films that spoke to a vast new audience of young moviegoers. The film industry reacted with an all-out effort to court sixties youth by making anti-establishment movies filled with strong social commentary. Provocative films such as The Graduate, Medium Cool, M*A*S*H, A Clockwork Orange, Woodstock, Alice's Restaurant, The Strawberry Statement, & Billy Jack strayed far from the mainstream, yet defined the shape & essence of American cinema for the next decade. BORN TO BE WILD is both a narrative & critical history of this era. It tells how Hollywood addressed such issues as violence, campus revolt, sexual liberation, Watergate & the Vietnam War & how audacious young filmmakers in chronicling an age told the story of a generation. (Originally published by Harper & Row in 1984 as HOLLYWOOD FILMS OF THE 70s. "Intelligent...sensitive...crammed with welcome information."--The New York Times).
