Description : For Australian servicemen captured by the Japanese in World War II, humour, courage and dignity in the face of hardship, brutality and deprivation – and hope in the face of the unknown – were quiet victories. They defined a uniquely Australian spirit. Defying the Odds tells the incredible story of the officers of B and E Forces interned at Sandakan and Kuching in Borneo. Despite the starvation and the trauma they suffered at the hands of the Japanese, they boosted morale through a regimen of study, music and theatre, and most importantly, by making each other laugh. After the war, military authorities were impressed by their physical and mental resilience and astounded by their achievements. As the years passed, they frequently held reunions to remember their experiences, to relive the jokes and the times they outwitted the guards, to recall old songs and the musicals and plays they staged – to honour friendships wrought by the war. This is a full-length account of how the officers of B and E Forces defied the odds, and survived.

Description : Here is hope for the difficult times of life Life is filled with challenges of every kind. When all the odds seem to be against you, God sees, He knows, He cares. Author Don Wilton shows how Noah experienced the ultimate "odds against me" situation when he was told to build a boat far from any sea. He endured the heckling of his contemporaries and believe God had a plan for his life. When the water began to rise, God's plan of redemption became clear to Noah and his family. When you face the floods of life and they threaten to overwhelm you, God still sovereign and His plan for your life remains intact. In this small book, Wilton offers hope, courage, and faith. Defying the Odds is illustrated by the stories of many people who looked ultimate failure and loss in the face, and then discovered God had not abandoned them. Your heart and life will be deeply encouraged whatever you may be facing-devastating health issues, financial loss of overwhelming proportion, or even rebellious children. Do not be discouraged! There is hope and you can defy the odds in and through the Lord Jesus Christ!

Description : "Defying the Odds examines the history of theTule River Tribe,a constituency of 1,500 members descended from the Southern Valley Yokuts Indians of California's Great Central Valley. This innovative book presents the first-ever study of a California tribe's political survival and transformation under American rule - from California statehood through the current Indian gaming era. The Tule River Tribe's struggle for sovereignty withstood challenges from political and legal institutions. Tribal members both reasserted and recast their traditions to preserve unity while competing for resources on their commonly owned reservation land base. The authors bring their remarkably rich knowledge of the Tribe's families and of federal Indian law to show how traditional leadership reemerged in the 1930s, under the Indian New Deal, through direct descendants of former chiefs. Vibrant portraits of men and women of the Tule River Tribe create a compelling narrative history, highlighting twentieth-century victories in land claims, government-to-government battles over Indian gaming, and use of Yokuts' traditional consensus - based negotiations over water rights with the Tribe's downstream neighbors. On every page of this groundbreaking book, the Tule River Tribe remains in frame as the protagonist of this exemplary story of indigenous struggle and triumph." --Book Jacket.

Description : Defying the Odds is about the new Dalit identity. It profiles the phenomenal rise of twenty Dalit entrepreneurs, the few who through a combination of grit, ambition, drive and hustle—and some luck—have managed to break through social, economic and practical barriers. It illustrates instances where adversity compensated for disadvantage, where working their way up from the bottom instilled in Dalit entrepreneurs a much greater resilience as well as a willingness to seize opportunities in sectors and locations eschewed by more privileged business groups. Traditional Dalit narratives are marked by struggle for identity, rights, equality and for inclusion. These inspiring stories capture both the difficulty of their circumstances as well as their extraordinary steadfastness, while bringing light to the possibilities of entrepreneurship as a tool of social empowerment.

Description : Defying the Odds is about the everyday life of a young girl growing up in the projects. It reveals many experiences the average person in America may not ever see or experience. Defying the Odds shows that one can overcome any and all situations and become a success in life. Imagine not ever knowing your father because he died while you were very young, too young to even know what happened. Imagine a brother being murdered, used as a human shield. Imagine another brother dying in prison. Imagine losing your mom to a terrible disease. Yes, we all experience death in our families, but how many of us experience death like this, over and over again? Defying the Odds reveals the determination of one young girl who is singled out by a family that has the resources to show her a life far beyond the projects. A business owner teaches her the value of money and the importance of saving for the future so that there is never a need that cannot be met. This book paints a clear and undeniable picture of the unrelenting determination of one young woman who came through some most difficult times and yet refused to give in to the beckoning of wrong turns that presented themselves on a daily basis in the projects that she called home. It is an inspiring story and one that should be shared with the countless number of young boys and girls who exist in similar circumstances throughout America.
