The Pacific Ocean covers one-third of the earth’s surface and encompasses many thousands of islands that are home to numerous human societies and cultures. Among these indigenous Oceanic cultures are the intrepid Polynesian double-hulled canoe navigators, the atoll dwellers of Micronesia, the statue carvers of remote Easter Island, and the famed traders of Melanesia. Decades of archaeological excavations—combined with allied research in historical linguistics, biological anthropology, and comparative ethnography—have revealed much new information about the long-term history of these societies and cultures. On the Road of the Winds synthesizes the grand sweep of human history in the Pacific Islands, beginning with the movement of early people out from Asia more than 40,000 years ago and tracing the development of myriad indigenous cultures up to the time of European contact in the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. This updated edition, enhanced with many new illustrations and an extensive bibliography, synthesizes the latest archaeological, linguistic, and biological discoveries that reveal the vastness of ancient history in the Pacific Islands.

A monumental, wholly accessible work of scholarship that retells human history through the story of mankind's relationship with the sea. An accomplishment of both great sweep and illuminating detail, The Sea and Civilization is a stunning work of history that reveals in breathtaking depth how people first came into contact with one another by ocean and river, and how goods, languages, religions, and entire cultures spread across and along the world's waterways. Lincoln Paine takes us back to the origins of long-distance migration by sea with our ancestors' first forays from Africa and Eurasia to Australia and the Americas. He demonstrates the critical role of maritime trade to the civilizations of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, and the Indus Valley. He reacquaints us with the great seafaring cultures of antiquity like those of the Phoenicians and Greeks, as well as those of India, Southeast and East Asia who parlayed their navigational skills, shipbuilding techniques, and commercial acumen to establish vibrant overseas colonies and trade routes in the centuries leading up to the age of European overseas expansion. His narrative traces subsequent developments in commercial and naval shipping through the post-Cold War era. Above all, Paine makes clear how the rise and fall of civilizations can be traced to the sea.

“This unusual, enjoyable second novel by Engh (Arslan) is a charming picaresque adventure set on another planet. To this unnamed planet comes the odd-looking man known as the Exile. The Warden, Lethgro, has captured the Exile after his escape from Sollet Castle, and now holds him prisoner on the small sailing ship, Mouse. But when an inspector of the Council of Beng is about to board the Mouse, Captain Repnomar, seeing that her friend the Warden does not wish to surrender the Exile to the Council, cuts and runs. And so begins for Lethgro, Repnomar and the Exile (who we have begun to suspect is an Earthman) an around-the-world journey over sea and land, through strange places previously unseen by civilized eye. Engh tells the story in a 19th century prose style: (‘For, as he said, they did not know when they would come to water again; and Repnomar thought this so prudent that she filled the little bailer that dangled always at her belt.’) This device is appropriate to the level of civilization on this planet, which resembles life here a century ago.” —Publishers Weekly

He took out his pistol from its holster and without warning shot Sean twice in the stomach. Sean could feel his life draining out of him. Zamatev walked towards Sean. He took another drink from the bottle. When it was empty, he threw it into the dense bush. ‘This one is for blowing up my base Sergeant,’ he said and shot Sean again. Sean didn’t feel the bullet; his whole body was so numb that it didn’t signal any pain in his brain. ‘You see Sergeant, I know that it was you and your pig brother who was responsible for demolishing my base, only now I’m the one who is doing the demolishing.’ Zamatev got so carried away that he kept on squeezing the trigger. Mercifully Sean was dead before the clip was empty.

If you read one of these stories, you have not read them all, as is the case in a communist country where the state creates an ersatz society of act-alikes who conform to prevailing doctrines. Propaganda is the result. These stories are the result of a life of freedom in our great nation, where freedom, never being put down by the State, is still the expression of mans deepest desires to be like God. Insofar as the unique individual shares creative gifts, he shares one of Gods attributes. These stories, perhaps only one hopefully more, will exalt in that creative spirit.

Book Summary When Special Agent Michael Smith—of the F.B.I.’s Unusual Occurrences Unit—is sent to investigate strange deaths that cannot be explained, he feels a trepidation that he cannot comprehend. His father had disappeared years earlier on a strange quest—the driving force of which Mike thought was superstitious idiocy. But when Mike meets Khalid, a Muslim scholar that had been with his father in the Middle East, all of the phenomena that Mike had earlier dismissed as Muslim mythology begin to intrude into his nearly perfect world. He discovers the existence of the Djinn, creatures of terrifying power and even more horrific intentions. As Mike begins to visit scenes with the same brutal deaths as before, he meets Bruce Wilson, a Dallas-based Medical Examiner; Sgt. Frank Stevens, a Dallas homicide detective; and many other survivors along the way, and develops relationships that prove themselves imperative to his sanity—and ultimately to his survival.

Kern Endol is a man whose dark past always catches up with him. After the death of his wife, Kern realizes that he has no family that he knows of, save one son mysteriously having vanished, and very little to keep him going. But his future is about to drastically change, and things once set in stone will then be in question, and his entire life will be judged by his very actions that dictate the lives of many. Hayle Barvwell is a child, a child that knows nothing of good fatherhood, only the brutality of life at it’s core. At eight years old, Hayle assists the man who stole her from the streets and works at a small inn. Her life seems as though nothing will ever get better. However, the hope is kindled by a man who bears many burdens, a man who can change her life forever...a father. This is the story of not just the individuals you will get to know, but a tale of life as told from the view of various opinions. The story I weave into being is not just about the characters, but about how they live, and what examples they set for others. This is the pursuit of life, this is the ever changing winds that bring disaster followed by healing, healing that will forever change lives.
