Poverty to Paradise, by Rocky Mason is a story of courage, fear, deprivation and humour. There are times when you will laugh out loud and others when you will weep. It's the definitive autobiography of a man who has been there, done that and still proudly wears the T Shirt. It's an eventful life of tough childhood wartime experiences, a successful amateur boxing career of 69 straight wins in 87 fights only to move from "Gumshield to Greasepaint" and a life in showbiz working for the "Holiday Camp King," Billy Butlin. Drawing on a multitude of sources Rocky offers a compelling account of those six gruelling years 1939 - 45. Food shortages, conscientious objectors, head lice, visits of the nit-nurse, rationing, nightly air raids and his own personal experience of evacuation to an atrocious boys camp. During what was a 30 year association with Butlins, Rocky became a personal friend of almost every showbiz star in the country, many of whom have contributed to this book. .

How rural areas have become uneven proving grounds for the American Dream Late-stage capitalism is trying to remake rural America in its own image, and the resistance is telling. Small-town economies that have traditionally been based on logging, mining, farming, and ranching now increasingly rely on tourism, second-home ownership, and retirement migration. In Dividing Paradise, Jennifer Sherman tells the story of Paradise Valley, Washington, a rural community where amenity-driven economic growth has resulted in a new social landscape of inequality and privilege, with deep fault lines between old-timers and newcomers. In this complicated cultural reality, "class blindness" allows privileged newcomers to ignore or justify their impact on these towns, papering over the sentiments of anger, loss, and disempowerment of longtime locals. Based on in-depth interviews with individuals on both sides of the divide, this book explores the causes and repercussions of the stark inequity that has become commonplace across the United States. It exposes the mechanisms by which inequality flourishes and by which Americans have come to believe that disparity is acceptable and deserved. Sherman, who is known for her work on rural America, presents here a powerful case study of the ever-growing tensions between those who can and those who cannot achieve their visions of the American dream.

George Yokoyama was 28 years old and living at a U.S. military camp in Japan when he met an elderly Japanese man he knew only as "Sensei" (Teacher). Sensei told George he'd once met the Hawaiian King Kalakaua and become great friends with the king's young relative. He urged George to be kind, helpful and respectful to native Hawaiians upon returning to Hawai'i. He made a profound impression upon George, who took Sensei's words to heart and spent the rest of his life doing just that. Back in Hawai'i, George took a job with a non-profit, community action agency that had the mission to prevent, alleviate and eliminate conditions of poverty. It became his passion--figuring out how to obtain money for programs that assisted Hawaiians and other local groups to improve their education, employment, and families' future. George rallied grassroots groups in overwhelming numbers and used politics as a means to an end. He had a compulsive preoccupation with helping disadvanged people and he helped change generations of families' lives.
