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.

Imagine selling all of your treasured possessions, leaving your comfortable life behind and heading out for unknown lands equipped with nothing but a bicycle, the bare essentials and a map. It would be the experience of a lifetime. But, what would it take - logistically, financially, emotionally - to make it a way of life? In their first book, The Road That Has No End, Tim and Cindie Travis detail their story of quitting the corporate world to spend a year on their bikes - starting from their hometown of Prescott, Arizona and finishing in Panama City, Panama. Down The Road in South America, their second book, takes us through the next phase of their journey the following year - from Quito, Ecuador and through South America. But they soon discover they’re on another kind of journey - one that would allow them to live the nomadic life indefinitely. Travel with Tim and Cindie as they ride thousands of miles through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile. Experience what it’s like to be an American abroad during wartime; be invited into people’s homes and share their food, cultures and traditions; escape roadside robbers; sleep under the stars; witness the breathtaking beauty and devastating poverty of South America. But most importantly, cheer them on as they come to the realization that their road truly has no end.

National Book Award-finalist: an “ingenious social satire” of the “arrogance, folly, injustice, and debauchery” among Spain’s privileged class (The Atlantic). Solita, a young daughter of refugees from Francisco Franco’s dictatorship in Spain, is whisked from the urban ghetto of Galmeda to El Topaz, the lush hacienda of a wealthy eccentric, which Solita’s mother assures her will be paradise. But behind its beautiful facade, El Topaz is a quagmire of social subterfuge, from its politicking adults to its spiteful children, and Solita finds herself alone in a glittery world where “you couldn’t trust anything. Or anybody. You had to navigate completely on your own.” Yet somehow, with only her sharp eye for separating truth from insincerity, Solita must weave her way through the social minefield of this supposed Spanish Shangri-La, searching for the happiness and harmony promised by her family’s liberation. Nominated for the National Book Award, Elena Castedo’s Paradise wickedly skewers the follies and falsehoods, conniving and cluelessness, of society’s so-called elite.
