The story is about a premature child, who survived a primitive and hostile post slavery environment- and grew up in poverty with a single unemployed parent and four siblings. The prose, syntax and narrative of the book is uniquely island and it is colored with British and American cultural experiences. That is why the author has included personal details which have significantly influenced his life-and taught him lessons such as, how to grow and bloom in the [concrete] jungle of thorns: Irritating and choking circumstances! The book introduces the reader to historical accounts of the Author's country of origin: Jamaica West Indies. Then the book elaborates on the island's period of enslavement, bloody struggle for freedom, and subsequent birth of the nation. The reason some history and culture is included is to establish a background for the life story of the little Jamaican boy. His roller coaster life has exposed the boy (now man’s) strengths and weaknesses. Just when it seemed that he is on top, he then slides down a steep slope! And, up again! This has been the story of how his life has been. What should the reader take away from how the writer has lived his life? This Autobiography, tells the life story of a premature baby who had survived in rural Jamaica without available intensive postnatal care facilities. How? He was carried about, fastened to a pillow, with a caring and professional rural family doctor, and a loving young mother. The delicate little baby, like a beautiful orchid, grew up, and in time faced life's struggles. He struggled at play, school, work as an immigrant and as a soldier in the British Army, and especially in marriages. He has had many successes and as many failures. He has given honest accounts of his mistakes, remedial actions and recovery. The book is written to help those who face difficulties and are not able to think positively, or able to view problems as opportunities. It was written to show versatility, strength, determination, adaptability, and faith in the Almighty. These are the qualities that have allowed the writer to be happy and content. Blake hopes the reader takes all these qualities away from the reading.

The first insider account of an ancient and secretive tradition • By the first foreigner to become a member, and later an elder, of the Juna Akhara, the oldest and largest grouping of Naga Babas • Filled with true accounts of magic, miracles, ghosts, and austerities • With lessons on Hindu gods, ayurveda, and Indian culture woven throughout After traveling at age 18 from his native California to India in 1969, Rampuri was drawn to the Naga Babas, an ancient and wild order of naked yogis whom he calls the “Hell’s Angels of Indian Spirituality.” Organized into a sect by Adi Shankara in the 5th century BC, the Naga Babas see themselves as the ultimate protectors of the Sanatan Dharma, or what we call the Hindu religion. Rampuri became a disciple of a Naga Baba--a master shaman sadhu--from Rajasthan and, as foretold by astrological prophecy, soon found himself the first foreigner to become an initiate of the Juna Akhara, the oldest and largest grouping of Naga Babas with more than 50,000 sadhu members. From drinking the “Nectar of Immortality” at the source of the Ganges River to allegations of tantric murder, this autobiography is filled with true accounts of magic, miracles, ghosts, and austerities, with lessons on Hindu gods, ayurveda, mantra, and Indian culture woven throughout. Through his journey of extremes, Rampuri takes us into the mystic heart of India.

It takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf. This is an an omnibus edition of the three books in the Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter trilogy. Sylvester James knows what it is to be haunted. His mother died giving birth to him and his father never let him forget it—until the night he was butchered by a werewolf. Alone in the world, Sylvester is taken in by Michael Winterfox, a Cheyenne mystic. Winterfox, once a werewolf hunter, trains the boy to be a warrior—teaching him how to block out pain, stalk, fight, and kill. Bit by bit all that makes Sylvester human is sacrificed to the hunt. Now, Sylvester’s hatred has become a monster all its own, robbing him of conscience and conviction as surely as the Beast’s bite. As he follows his vendetta into the outlands of the occult, options become scarce. And he learns it takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf—to kill a werewolf, it takes a hunter with a perfect willingness to die. This edition features the previously published Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter, Heart of Scars, and The Lineage in Brian P. Easton's Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter trilogy.

This autobiography of my life starts on the island of my birth, Jamaica, in 1962. At a young age, my father left my mother, my brother, and myself. He returned months later and illegally took me away at the age of three to live with his mistress and their unborn child. So begins The Start of the Journey: Part One of an Autobiography, a wrenching tale of my inner survival. The experiences and challenges I endured as a child empowered me for this time in my life, for I finally found the peace within me to share my story with others. I have found forgiveness, love, and respect for myself and others who were in our family circle. I cannot change my past, I can only learn and look forward to my future. I am now a stronger person who is no longer vulnerable, I have been empowered; my adversities have all been transformed into triumphs. Sandra Ward-Cooper left Jamaica for Toronto and now lives in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. She is an educator and a married mother of four children.

A New Translation From The French By Marion Wiesel Night is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie's wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author's original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man. Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.
