In America, the years 1790 to 1830 were a time of westward expansion, and those violent decades produced their share of rogues and heroes. Mike Fink was a little of both: The self-proclaimed King of the Mississippi River, he was a gunfighter and keelboatman who always chose courage over comfort in his never-ending quest for adventure. Fink's mesmerizing story begins when he takes Nathan Bonable, an orphaned young homesteader, along with him for a riverboat trip that quickly becomes the journey of a lifetime. Along the way, Mike pursues an on-again, off-again relationship with Mirabelle Drennan, the one woman who may have the power to tame Mike Finkor beat him at his own game. Whether outfoxing the Indians, besting a violent soldier or running the unpredictable river with uncanny ease, Mike Fink is intoxicated by danger and lives each day to the hilt. In a rousing mix of legend and history, with the mighty Mississippi as his most loving mistress and most hazardous adversary, Mike Fink and the colorful days of America's riverboating past thunder to life once more.

Mr. Allen Upward, better known to fame as a war correspondent, has attempted to give us "a reading of the history of Christianity down to the time of Christ," and however much we may disagree with some of his conclusions we must at least applaud the sincerity and the originality as well as the erudition of his effort. Mr. Upward finds in the dawn of Christianity a story that has been told mystically from age to age. Its words and signs are inherited from a primeval language, from prehistoric peoples, and from tales that are still the Bible of the peasant and the child. It is, he says, a recrystallization of universal fears and hopes, carried out in the crucible of a planetary heat wave, whose coming had been more or less distinctly felt by "a series of true prophets from Zoroaster to John the Baptist." Mr. Upward believes that Christ was an historical personage, but that the story of his life is an allegorical repetition of the greater story that is as old as the world it- self. To this end he collects all the threads of folklore within his reach, all the "superstitions" that perhaps are not superstitions, and that tend to show the stirrings of a higher consciousness and knowledge that culminates in the genius and the savior. If sometimes he seems to be inadequate or superficial we must remember the greatness, the almost incredible magnitude of the quarries from which he hews.

When the ghosts of the past live rent-free in a man’s heart, there’s no room for anyone else. For Nick “Thunder” Taylor, flying and the military meant everything. When life took an unexpected turn, he replaced one Hawg with another, embracing the brotherhood he found with the Phantoms. However, burying his past doesn’t mean it won’t come back to haunt him. After he patched in, Thunder had an unforgettable encounter with an amazing woman only for her to ghost him. Three years later, he’s outraged when she walks into his clubhouse and pretends the whole thing never happened. Now he’s torn between discovering her game or playing a more pleasurable one with her. Either way, she’s not going to right her skirt, say thanks, and just walk away again.

God Is Up to Something Big The Bible dedicates more space to prophecy than to any other subject. These prophetic portions of Scripture have received an enormous amount of literary attention throughout the history of the church. Over the past fifty years alone countless books have been written about the biggest global trends of our day and whether they are signs of the coming end times. But one sign has been inexplicably neglected—revival. Wallace Henley believes such a spiritual awakening is not only possible today but probable—and likely a harbinger of the end times. Where are we on the timeline of human history? Are we approaching the rapture of the church? Henley presents a meticulously researched and compelling case that the Welsh Revival and the historical cycle revealed in God’s redemptive interactions with nations, make it highly likely that our contemporary world is ripe for the lightning of another revival. Henley is confident that we will be a part of that worldwide event, perhaps moving all creation nearer to its sudden glorious conclusion and rebirth.

The City of Buffalo, New York, is known for its snowy reputation, but the snowstorm of October 2006 was beyond unexpected. It caught Buffalonians so off guard that it merits this book of true stories from citizens, including a foreword by Hall of Fame Coach Marv Levy and remarks from Mayor Byron Brown. Don Purdy, a longtime executive with the Buffalo Bills, shares how he, his family, and the football organization overcame the surprise storm, which occurred Friday the 13th and remains the most destructive in Buffalo’s history. Over thirty players, coaches, and staff deliver their own fascinating memories, such as leaving their families behind without power or heat to travel to Detroit for a regular season game, along with never-before shared accounts of the inner workings of One Bills Drive and the National Football League. Meteorologists from all three major local television networks reveal their personal and professional experiences, notably how the Storm happened and...how they missed it. Dozens of other prominent members of radio, police, medical, clergy, insurance, business, education, and Buffalo’s NHL Sabres hockey team vividly recall their reactions and subsequent decisions. Co-Author Billy Klun delivers superb literary framing throughout and even takes the reader inside his then fourteen-year-old mind struggling to make sense of a landscape turned upside down over night. In the overwhelming aftermath, the city’s recovery efforts were boosted by a pair of highly inventive, altruistic volunteers determined to replant the 55,000 lost trees and provide the downed tree carcasses a proud second life – Buffalo style. In addition to the Bills organization’s quick-thinking and innovative operational adjustments, Thunder Snow of Buffalo offers plenty of humor and laughs, including rookie players from the South asking, “If this happens in October, what will the real winter months be like?”

Desperate times call for desperate measures in Kalteis’s lightning-fast crime caper story Sonny and Clara Myers struggle on their Kansas farm in the late 1930s, a time the Lord gave up on: their land’s gone dry, barren, and worthless; the bankers are greedy and hungry, trying to squeeze them and other farmers out of their homes; and, on top of that, their marriage is in trouble. The couple can struggle and wither along with the land or surrender to the bankers and hightail it to California like most of the others. Clara is all for leaving, but Sonny refuses to abandon the family farm. In a fit of temper, she takes off westward in their old battered truck. Alone on the farm and determined to get back Clara and the good old days, Sonny comes up with an idea, a way to keep his land and even prosper while giving the banks a taste of their own misery. He sets the scheme in motion under the cover of the commotion being caused by a rainmaker hired by the mayor to call down the thunder and wash away everyone’s troubles.
