Summary: This book focuses on the recurring struggle over the meaning of the Anglican Church’s role in the Indian residential schools--a long-running school system designed to assimilate Indigenous children into Euro-Canadian culture, in which sexual, psychological, and physical abuse were common. From the end of the nineteenth century until the outset of twenty-first century, the meaning of the Indian residential schools underwent a protracted transformation. Once a symbol of the Church’s sacred mission to Christianize and civilize Indigenous children, they are now associated with colonialism and suffering. In bringing this transformation to light, the book addresses why the Church was so quick to become involved in the Indian residential schools and why acknowledgment of their deleterious impact was so protracted. In doing so, the book adds to our understanding of the sociological process by which perpetrators come to recognize themselves as such.

Summary: Cape Diamond, the second book in the Frank Yakabuski Mystery series, is atmospheric and action-packed. Set near the Northern Divide — as was the first installment, Edgar Award nominee (Best Paperback Original), Ragged Lake — the book opens with Yakabuski called to investigate a gruesome crime scene. A body has been left hanging from a schoolyard fence. On closer inspection, Yak finds a large diamond in the murder victim’s mouth. Two criminal gangs — the Shiners and the Travellers — are fighting with each other, and Yakabuski turns to his father, a now-retired detective who has a long history with the gangs, for advice in the interrogation. Is the conflict over the murder of two men? The kidnapping of a little girl? Or, possibly, the diamond found in Augustus Morrissey’s mouth? As if this weren’t enough for one detective, a serial killer is taking a deadly road trip through the United States, heading towards the Northern Divide. Ron Corbett weaves the various strands together with ingenuity, making Cape Diamond a brooding, suspense-filled story of hubris, betrayal, and evil deeds; his writing is sparse and taut, compelling the reader to follow the action and gang conflict to a surprise ending.

Summary: This comprehensive Road Safety Guide in the form of a Practical Handbook illustrates how Improperly Designed and Poorly Constructed Roads and Highways remained as Passive Causes of Road Traffic Accidents that claim approximately 1.42 to 1.45 lac lives annually since last few years, for no fault of road users. The author drove 19,110 kms in 58 days on outer peripheral National Highways, connecting State Highways, City, Town and Village Roads prior to authoring this book to collect first hand information and ground realities of roads in India. He categorized such defects as Passive Causes of Road Traffic Accidents and Deaths, and documented them for the first time in India. He disproved the general belief that the majority of Road Traffic Accidents and Deaths are caused due to Over Speeding & Drunken Driving on handling 12,383 motor accident insurance claims. Through an in-depth study, he concluded that 57.5% Road Traffic Accidents are caused due to Improper Road Design, Poor Construction Quality and Defects on the Roads and Highways. Such Observational Research is not carried out anywhere in the world till date.

Summary: The Mission Road: “And lo! A light from Heaven shown down, And I beheld through the briars The Mission Road of the Franciscan friars.” Early on the morning, April 6, 2013 while visiting the old Suwannee River crossing at Charles Spring, I saw this beam from the heavens shining as if to mark the trail for me. This digital image, entitled “Photograph of the Bellamy Road, Charles Spring, which is thought to be a part of the Old Spanish Trail,” was placed in the Viva Florida 500 statewide time capsule and was sealed in the R. A. Gray Building, Tallahassee on December 31, 2013. It will be opened on Mar. 3, 2095. The state of Florida is entering some significant anniversaries in its history. The year 2013 ushered in Viva Florida 500, a state effort to celebrate and promote the Spanish discovery of Florida and 500 years of Spanish influence upon it. The year 2015 marked the 450th birthday of St. Augustine, the oldest continuously occupied city in the United States. Consequently there has been a renewed interest in the most famous road in the state’s history. Yes, Florida can boast as having the oldest city, but perhaps it also has the oldest road, for almost from the inception of St. Ausustine, inroads into the hinterland ensued. It is surprising that Florida’s royal road, El Camino Real, has never been accurately defined until now. Many have heard of the Old Spanish Trail, but have misleading ideas of its use and course. Often times, it is confused with the trail of the same name out West. Some think it extended from St. Augustine to Mexico, and, perhaps, the greatest error, is to associate it with U. S. Highway 90. Robert Hurst takes the reader on a 465 mile journey through the eyes of early Spaniards and others across the marshes, swamps, rivers, natural bridges, and highlands of Florida from St. Augustine to Pensacola. He describes the methods of ferrying men, cargo and horses across the many rivers encountered. The reader will travel in the footsteps of Spaniards, English and American soldiers. He will experience the hardships of river crossings and encounter the various tribes of Native Americans, their villages and the Catholic missions along the way. He will experience the tired traveler’s joy upon reaching the many remarkable springs along the trail. In short, this book is about the struggle of man and beast to penetrate the wild, untamed Florida wilderness of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The reader will discover the course and experience what travel was like along the real Old Spanish Trail. Accompanying the text are appendices, photographs and maps. In the appendices, the reader will discover driving roads and hiking trails that replicate the experience of travel on this most famous and historic trail. The photographs illustrate the pristine parts of the existing trail, and the early and contemporary maps enable the reader to actually visit parts of the old trail. This is a book that will not only interest the reader with historical and archaeological interests, but also the outdoor adventurer and the Florida heritage\ecotourist. The publication of this work is long overdue. Florida’s oldest, most famous, and longest road has not received the attention it deserves. It is the author’s hope that the attention this book will receive will help save what is left of one of Florida’s most important heritage sites.

Summary: As a child, Maria Luisa Jimenez Edwards wanted to be a missionary. It held an indescribable allure for her, an intrinsic pull that was aching to spread the Good News of Jesus. In the pages of this book, join her as she embarks on a personal and spiritually-challenging journey to the jungles of Ecuador. It is virtually impossible to describe a missionary life meaningfully to someone who has never experienced it. She wants to encourage readers to find their own paths to follow God as others, in the midst of utmost poverty, have found. As she wrote these stories she was inspired and challenged anew. Years of participation in the western lifestyle has weakened a passionate faith in a God of power and miracles. From the story of a village of destitute women who dropped everything to come to the aid of a grandmother dying of cancer, to the family who already had seven children but chose to accept an orphan, you will also be inspired by the faith of those who rely on God alone. You will see opportunities to be a part of the miracle if you open your eyes to Gods vision. The Love and Power of God proves that His Word conquers all, bringing people together to arm themselves with unconditional love, achieving wonders for themselves, their families and communities.

Summary: The year was 1925. A young copyboy, just out of college, was given the job of reporter. Not only was he fulfilling his lifes dream, he was reporting on a trial that became the interest of the nation. In a small rural town in Alabama in 1925, a man was prosecuted for a capital crime. Was he tried fairly based on the facts? Did the town people get so caught up in the excitement of their exposure from the trial that justice was placed by the wayside? Was there a predestined outcome for this trial with the accuser being an elderly white woman and the accused being her gardener, an elderly black man. Tho slavery had been over for many years, the teachings were passed down from previous generations. White was Right, with no questions asked. The Injustice of Justice shows just how deeply the separation by color was and of the consequences. The story may tug at your conscience and your heart. Either way, it may be an emotional experience that will leave you sympathetic to an elderly black man named Jake.

Summary: The first and finest handbook for travelers of the Old American West. First published in 1859, The Prairie Traveler was the indispensable book for looking to follow the American dream, pull up stakes, head into the wilderness of the frontier, and build a new life out West. With the official blessing of the US War Department, Randolph Marcy, a captain in the US Army, published The Prairie Traveler as the ultimate guide for these pioneers, covering everything from the best way to move wagons over hostile terrain and what to pack, to describing over thirty-four different trails to be taken and the dangers one may face on the way. Captain Marcy also passes on the knowledge he gained from local Indian tribes, from how to cook and wage war to their subtle tribal differences and customs. The Prairie Traveler stands as an important piece of early American literature, and as a fascinating presentation of the now-lost Wild West: its perils, its rewards, and ultimately, the achievements of those who worked hard to survive. Captain Marcy’s guide remains the essential guide for those who wish to discover the trials and tribulations of the early pioneers of America, and it is an indispensable addition to any historical collection. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more.
