Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 My mother, who was a dance student back in the 1960s, left the small town of Iron Mountain, Michigan, for the dream life of affluence and prestige she believed awaited her in sunny Los Angeles. But she was met by a strange man named my father, who loved her but was completely unrecognizable. #2 Billie was married to a man named Walt, who was a respected leader in his division and climbing the ladder. He was also a married man with three children and another on the way. Billie was attracted to his success, but he was also loyal to the wrong person. #3 When Billie began her relationship with Walt, Marcia had grown weary of Walt’s history of indiscretions. One day, while tending to Walt’s dry cleaning, Marcia found Billie’s ID in one of his jacket pockets. When she voiced her suspicions, she was met with a vile mix of aspersions, threats, and violence. #4 I was born in 1971. The stress in Billie’s life began to lift, with a progression of Walt’s promises seeming less hollow. He spent more time with us and paid more attention to Billie. She was also busier than she’d been before, because she now tended to two young children and their father.

The story of Chris McCandless, who gave away his savings, hitchhiked to Alaska, walked into the wilderness alone, and starved to death in 1992, fascinated not just New York Times bestselling author Jon Krakauer, but the rest of the nation too. Krakauer's book and a Sean Penn film skyrocketed Chris McCandless to worldwide fame, but the real story of his life and his journey has not yet been told until now.

The Bible is a photo album, brimming with self-portraits of a God who wants to be known. God has put these pictures in the Bible to reveal his character. By examining them, we discover who God is and why he’s worth knowing better. And we discover something else: who he wants us to be. He wants us to copy his picture into our own character. Wild Truth Bible Lessons--Pictures of God 2 is a guide to 12 God-pictures taken straight from the Photo Album. They are active Bible lessons for junior high and middle school Sunday school classes or youth group meetings, each one based on one of the 50 pictures of God and presented energetically, relevantly, and scripturally in the companion student book Wild Truth Journal: Pictures of God. The lessons are loaded with off-the-wall and easy-to-do discussion starters, video ideas, scripts, games with a point. And, of course, Bible passages and studies that springboard junior highers from the abstract into the concrete as (open Bibles in hand) they explore the nature of God in a lively, relevant way, and then begin practicing in their own lives the traits of God.Here’s how the lessons are organized: * Picture Prep grabs your group’s attention to prepare them for what’s ahead.* Action Shot takes your students into the Bible to catch God in the act of revealing his character.* Self-Portrait explores the given aspect of God’s character...how it makes God just that much more awesome...and why it’s a very good trait for us to have, too.* Print It! challenges your students to print God’s picture into their own lives by living out his character in an immediately practical way.12 lessons

A crime of gentility in Gramercy Park! The Sturtevant sisters, the park setting, could pass as a faded daquerreotype. Gramercy Park is still a private enclave in mid-New York, unsharing of secrets within codes of the society of the Five Hundred families. Mansions have features reflecting past, and present owners. This enclosure aches with regrets, crying out for liberty to love wildly, to roam, to sing a self, or to commit a crime. Early on the residents judged the Player's Club in the quadrangle to be a bad mix. Esme and Cecilie live in a mansion opposite the Player's Club. Cecilie, the younger, weds a promising actor, Adam Addams, who was reared in the Club, the son of janitors. Convicted of her murder, he stands condemned, and awaits sentence set by a report from the probation department. Dan Biggs, an officer, is burned out. Reports are ad hoc hurried tintypes, which belie the purpose of tailored sentencing. A devalued life devalues his own! Biggs is drawn like a fan to the theatricality of the crime. Among artists, he becomes an artist in mind, restoring depth to his emotional life. His report is a performance by a puppet theatre, which reenacts the wild truth of the crime. In a Court of Law? Outrageous! The denouement turns on the meaning of a locket, and its pathos for Esme and Cecilie.
