By Betty June Gilliland
On a stormy night, as a hurricane raced up the Gulf Coast and created havoc in its path, Betty Gilliland was born on a corn shuck mattress in a barn at the foot of Sand Mountain. As soon as the midwife wrapped her in a blanket and gently laid her in a cow manger, Gilliland began a journey through life that would eventually test her spirit, courage, and, most of all, her power to forgive. Gilliland begins by chronicling her growing up years during a challenging time in America’s history. Her father was drafted into the war and then abandoned his family, leaving Gilliland and her mother to eke out a life for themselves in their tiny cabin, surviving on a diet of wild greens, nuts, and roots. As she weaves through the threads of her life’s tapestry, Gilliland recalls the challenges she confronted during her difficult coming-of-age journey as she suffered through hardships, physical abuse, emotional abandonment, and her own self-destructive behavior. Yet through it all, she never lost the faith. What’s more, she used that faith to begin building a new life and to discover her roots. Destiny’s Tapestry shares one woman’s poignant memories of moving from the darkness of abuse into the light of healing.

By Warren S. Gilbert, MD
Warren S. Gilbert grew up on the streets of Chicago, and no one expected him to accomplish much. Even so, his athleticism paved the way for him to attend Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, and his intellect led him to Rush Medical College. While most people would have been happy with graduating and becoming a successful physician, he grew bored and moved to Nevada for a fresh start.

But as time passed, he sought more meaning out of life – and he found it when various branches of the armed services began calling. With his country seeking help from qualified doctors and terrorism on the rise, he joined the US Naval Reserve.

But everything changed when terrorists attacked the United States on September 11, 2001. What was supposed to have been a detour turned into a career that would lead to some of his most memorable and meaningful moments.

Join Gilbert as he looks back at serving his country, fighting terrorists, and excelling as a member of the US Naval Reserve and then as a physician serving with the Marine Corps. It was all part of pulling double duty as a rifleman and doctor.

By Lotus Tran

During the Vietnam War, there was a young girl who wondered what the jungles hid. Lotus Tran grew up in Qui Nhon, and she imagined that the flashing lights she often saw in the sky were dragons fighting each other. When she went into the jungle to seek shelter and food, she thought it would be a paradise, with dragons resting from battle.

Her dreams were shattered when she was almost captured by enemies. She witnessed battles between South Vietnamese soldiers and Viet Cong, or the North Vietnamese Army, and was almost killed by a sniper. Wild animals, land mines, and booby traps filled the jungle. Instead of a paradise, she found a place of death and destruction where her next step could be her last.

In the Heart of the Jungle shares Tran’s life experiences, recalling village life as her people try to live normally in the midst of war. She remembers the pain she felt as she watched villagers die in front of her in Vietnam and at sea as she and her people fled the country. This memoir demonstrates what the Vietnam War did to Tran’s family, her people, and her country. She learned early on in life that she had a choice: survive or die trying.

By Chantelle Taylor
‘Every inch a woman and every inch a warrior. In peace and war Taylor is as radiant as gold and as tough as diamond’ Sam Kiley - author of Desperate Glory and Foreign Affairs Editor of Sky News. Chantelle Taylor joined the British Army in 1998 as a combat medical technician.

Facing the possibility of death daily, Taylor writes of gun battles and perilous patrols, culminating in the extraction of more than sixty-six casualties with four killed in action. A powerful story written with a humility that captures the sometimes impalpable humour of soldiers at war, Battleworn provides a testament to combat medics all over the world.

By Douglas “Doc” McBride

Douglas “Doc” McBride is a self-proclaimed southern redneck who has not wasted one minute of his time on Earth. As an ordinary man and a product of a not-so-ordinary world, McBride shares a heartwarming and often amusing glimpse into his varied experiences as he matured from a boy into a man.

Raised during simpler times in a military family, McBride recalls a childhood in which chores and homework were tackled before anything else, children roamed freely outside, and gopher hunting was encouraged. Part of a military family that moved from place to place, McBride received a global education that took him from the Arctic to the Orient. But as McBride describes, all was not sunshine and roses. At eighteen, he made one of the worst decisions of his life—one that landed him in one of the worst of places. This lesson started him on a quest to find himself by many paths including martial arts, eventually finding his way to a diverse career and to happiness.

Skidding in Sideways, a tale of accomplishment, struggle, defeat and redemption, is the true story of one man’s trials and tribulations as he learned to embrace life and all its lessons with love, excitement, and an adventuresome spirit.

By Fábos Gyula

Julius Gyula Fábos a zöldellő magyar vidéken nőtt fel abban a biztos tudatban, hogy egy nap ő fogja majd irányítani a családi gazdaságot. De az 1947-es kommunista hatalomátvétel után őket – csakúgy, mint a többi keményen dolgozó magyar nagygazdát – kulákként, a nép ellenségeként megbélyegezték és ldözték. Fábosékat meghurcolták, a szerzőt és édesapját letartóztatták, megkínozták, börtönbe vetették, munkatáborba k ldték.

A lenyűgöző memoárban Fábos nem csak saját drámai történetét, a békés falusi gyerekkorból a II. világháború veszélyein, az 1956-os forradalomhoz vezető növekvő sztálinista elnyomás rettenetén és kockázatos disszidálásán át az amerikai új élet és egzisztencia megteremtéséig tartó viszontagságokat írja le, hanem a kulákok jobbára homályban maradt szenvedését is. Fábos az átélt megpróbáltatásokon kereszt l azt mutatja meg, hogy kellő bátorsággal és elszántsággal az ember a kör lményekkel dacolva is megvalósíthatja álmait.

By Don Tolle

With a lifelong love of music dating back to his childhood, author Don Tolle dreamed about achieving fame as a recording artist. But it was in 1973, after a tour in Vietnam, that he finally took the leap, picked up the telephone, and called record companies about his songs. It was a fateful day in his career, one that reverberates even today.

In For the Record, Tolle shares his career as a music man, beginning in the record business of the wide-open 1970s, when everything seemed possible. The story follows his career from its beginnings in an entry-level position at a record company to his eventual founding of a record company and production of his own hit records, winning multiple awards in the process.

Tolle also shares the story of his precipitous fall from the summit of success. For the Record describes his walk through the long shadows of the valley, where he wandered lost and alone before staging a remarkable comeback that ultimately led to his greatest triumph and the realization of the misplaced, but not forgotten, dream of his youth.

Filled with the experiences, memories, revelations, and reflections of an amazing career during the golden age of the music business, this memoir offers an insider’s view of the music world filled with unique personalities.

By Kenneth D. Fly
Kenneth Fly went from town living to the life of a farm boy during the 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s. It was a life of hard work without luxury. Instead of watching television and playing video games, he grew up working in the fields of North Carolina, handling firearms, operating machinery, and participating in other activities and tasks that are foreign to the youngsters, youth, and even men of today. In this series of personal narratives and anecdotes, Fly recalls those days with detail and humor. Life wasn’t always easy, but his mother did whatever was necessary to make a good home and loving environment for her family. His dad was a hardworking master carpenter whose behavior showed anyone watching that life is about morals, hard work, and self-respect. The Fly family is special because they so rarely complained and always managed to stay happy. For them, life wasn’t fancy, but relying on common sense and each other made it sweet.

By Marian Love

By writing my family’s memoirs, I have tried to open a window into the life of my family, first generation Danish immigrants who came to America, not to escape an oppressive government or economic crisis but to seek ownership and control of their lives and their future. I describe their love of family as well as their internal and cultural struggles. My parents and siblings faced numerous challenges and uncertainties while raising a large family, struggling through the Great Depression and renewing their determination amidst successes and failures, joys and tragedies. My family wore the stamp of first generation immigrants with all the uncertainties of living in a new country and speaking only a foreign language. Nevertheless, we had the sense that we were special though our home, clothes and other worldly possessions declared otherwise. By some small miracle, we all survived and achieved varying degrees of success, each in our own way.

Writing this book has been a journey of heart and mind as I recount stories about my family and myself. Like most children, I seek to understand who I am from my origin and experiences. My parents left indelible marks on me, my siblings and the generations that have followed. May this memoir enlighten and give context and a measure of insight to family and friends and all those who wonder about the experiences of life we share with our fellow travelers everywhere.
