Silas is ten years old when the headaches start. When the diagnosis arrives, his parents are told they have until Christmas... maybe. And so begins Sarah Pullen’s battle to save her son, against doubting doctors and insurmountable odds. This story about love and loss traces her family’s journey from that first day at the hospital, battling a tumour they named ‘Bob’, through Silas’s death and beyond. This profoundly moving and honest account shows that it is possible to find the strength for a journey that no mother should ever go on; that it is possible to find a new way to live, even when death is knocking on the door. It is about confronting grief – raw, ugly, incomprehensible grief. It is a book about wrapping a small boy in love, but still letting him get grubby knees. It is about learning to savour every moment of the here and now, yet also learning to let go. At its heart, A Mighty Boy is a story of the love between a mother and a son. It is a book about seizing the moment and somehow managing to survive the death of a child. But most of all it is a book about a small, mighty, smiling boy.

"The Crow and His Boy is the first in a series of books about a crow named Blackie. The story begins when Blackie is pushed from the crow's nest by his older brother. During his fall, Blackie sees a boy named Leo, who comes to his aid, as the bird lies injured at the foot of a tall pine. Leo and Blackie instantly bond, sharing the gift of telepathy, which enables them to communicate effortlessly without spoken words. Blackie eventually learns to fly with Leo's assistance. Blackie migrates to Florida with all the other crows each winter, though he and Leo share their adventures telepathically. In the third year of his migration, Blackie returns with a mate. Leo also grows up, goes to Dartmouth College and falls in love. Blackie shares with Leo the stories he hears of crow killings in a small college town named Faithful, New Hampshire. The president of Right College hates crows and attempts to eradicate them. Besides killing crows, the president is also secretly training a militia for bigger kills. Leo and Blackie travel to Hofstadter's Militia Training Center, in Freedom, N. H., where they meet other telepaths. Blackie's wise leadership creates a telephathic force ready to take on the militia. This supernatural novel shows how man and other species can work together and share an enduring bond." --Back cover.

American labor unions resemble private representative democracies, complete with formally constituted conventions and officer election procedures. Like other democratic institutions, unions have repeatedly experienced highly charged conflicts over the integration of ethnic minorities and women into leadership positions. In Becoming a Mighty Voice, Daniel B. Cornfield traces the 55-year history of the United Furniture Workers of America (UFWA), describing the emergence of new social groups into union leadership and the conditions that encouraged or inhibited those changes. This vivid case history explores leadership change during eras of union growth, stability, and decline, not simply during isolated episodes of factionalism. Cornfield demonstrates that despite the strong forces perpetuating existing union hierarchies, leadership turnover is just as likely as leadership stagnation. He also shows that factors external to the union may influence leadership change; periods of turnover in the UFWA leadership reflected employer efforts to find cheap, non-union labor, as well as union efforts to unionize workers. When unions are threatened by intensified conflict with employers and when entrenched high status groups within the union are obliged to recruit members of lower socioeconomic status, then new social groups are likely to be integrated into union leadership. Becoming a Mighty Voice develops a theory of leadership change that will be of interest to many engaged in the labor, civil rights, and women's movements as well as to sociologists or historians of work, gender, and race, and to students of political and organizational behavior.

Son of the god Yawe, Fatra is destined to rule over two empires but only, it was decreed, after he has undergone much humiliation and suffering. For ten years, Fatra's life is that of any other childs on the planet of Minerva but then his presence is made known to King Fag, one of the leaders of the other three continents. Fearful of the rumor that Fatra is fated to take over his empire, the king arranges his kidnapping. As he has no son, King Fag adopts Fatra as his own, and trains him to be a great scholar. The palace magician, jealous of Fatra's place in the king's affections, poisons their relationship and thus Fatra is given to King Tubal of Meridional as a goodwill gesture, along with the gift of technology. Tubals intentions are not so pure and so begin Fatras descent into war, slavery, rebellion, infidelity, betrayal and imprisonment. In a story that spans four continents and thirty-five years, Fatra always remains Yawes boy, the son of a god.

"A fast-paced, compelling story about love and its power to both heal and redeem." --Kim McLarin, author of Meeting the Waters Mel and Adrienne Jordan have the kind of marriage most couples only dream about. Mel feels lucky to have the smartest, sexiest wife a man could want, while caring for their infant daughter and tending to their lovely home in New York City keeps Adrienne busy and content. Landing a recording contract had once been her greatest ambition--but not anymore. Life is that good. Until the day a tragedy changes everything. Convinced that he is to blame, Mel returns to the mean streets of his youth--and indulges in the drugs, drink, and women he finds there. Adrienne works long hours at a tedious job, desperate to get ahead--even though she's not really sure where she's going. As they drift further into their grief--and away from each other--Mel and Adrienne start to wonder if they can ever reclaim what they had. And they soon realize that their greatest challenge will be trying to save the one thing they had always taken for granted: their love.
