Explanation of the Book:

What do you treasure? You may think of the people in your life: family, friends, or mentors. Maybe you'd add items you've collected: jewelry, photographs, souvenirs, and family heirlooms. You might also include the valuable knowledge, skills, and wisdom you've gained. Author Frances Gregory Pasch cherishes all those blessings. But in 1983, when she was fifty years old, she discovered that her most valuable treasure of all was a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The poems in Greater Than Gold: Poems That Celebrate a Relationship with God reflect the many ways you can connect with God in your daily life. This second collection of Pasch's simple yet powerful poetry includes "Nighttime Visits," "The Right View," "A Slip of the Lip," "Help Me to Be Satisfied," "What Really Counts," and "Precious, Priceless Prize." Whether your relationship with God is distant or intimate, Greater Than Gold will increase your desire to know Him better.

Explanation of the Book:

One of America’s most heralded young divers, David Boudia twice went for Olympic gold, training obsessively and whole-heartedly for success. In his first Olympics, he failed miserably, not winning a single medal. Four years later saw a different story: he mounted the podium twice, winning both gold and bronze. The difference? In the intervening years, he’d changed the focus of his quest from seeking glory for himself to giving glory to God. In Greater Than Gold, Boudia provides a behind-the-scenes access to the rarefied world of world-class athletics while also showing readers that when they place their hope in God, they receive what they’ve been seeking all along.

Explanation of the Book:

My novella, "Greater than Gold," is a short, meaningful Christmas story, written for middle grade and up readers. Parents and grandparents who buy the book, will also enjoy reading this emotional story that revolves around two troubled boys and their two Christmases-Oscar in the present day, and Omar back in biblical time. A good description would be "The Polar Express" meets the "Book of Luke." After all, if a magic train ride can restore one boy's belief in Santa Claus, why can't an angel time-travel another boy back to Bethlehem, where he discovers the peace, joy (and danger!) of the very first Christmas? Twelve-year-old Oscar Olsen is missing his soldier Dad, and he wants nothing (repeat, nothing) to do with Christmas this year! He acts out his anger on his Mom, his friend, Melissa, and even the strange new kid in church, Albert. A young, inexperienced angel, still struggling to control her wings, appears in Oscar's bedroom. She whirls him back to 2,000 years ago, where he becomes Omar, an orphaned camel-boy, riding with three learned men. Omar is a brand-new person in the traditional nativity story, and he leads the reader to smell the stable, feel the camel's hair, and hear the bleating sheep. Young readers will be drawn into the boys' two parallel stories, told in alternating chapters. Without giving away the whole story, each chapter brings both boys closer to the great paradox of life-it is in giving, that we receive. Sacrifice is at the heart of both stories. Each chapter begins with an original drawing, further enhancing the story. Lots of cute picture books for little ones fill the bookstores at Christmas, but where is the book with deeper meaning for kids in the middle grades? This novella-length book can fill that gap. "Greater than Gold" is a fast-reading adventure story of camels and kings, deserts and Dads, and a slightly inept angel. The book makes a great stocking-stuffer gift that will enrich Christmas for young readers.

Explanation of the Book:

“No series since George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire has quite captured both palace intrigue and the way that tribal infighting and war hurt the vulnerable the most.” —Paste Magazine The final chapter in the bestselling, critically acclaimed Daevabad Trilogy, in which a con-woman and an idealistic djinn prince join forces to save a magical kingdom from a devastating civil war. Daevabad has fallen. After a brutal conquest stripped the city of its magic, Nahid leader Banu Manizheh and her resurrected commander, Dara, must try to repair their fraying alliance and stabilize a fractious, warring people. But the bloodletting and loss of his beloved Nahri have unleashed the worst demons of Dara’s dark past. To vanquish them, he must face some ugly truths about his history and put himself at the mercy of those he once considered enemies. Having narrowly escaped their murderous families and Daevabad’s deadly politics, Nahri and Ali, now safe in Cairo, face difficult choices of their own. While Nahri finds peace in the old rhythms and familiar comforts of her human home, she is haunted by the knowledge that the loved ones she left behind and the people who considered her a savior are at the mercy of a new tyrant. Ali, too, cannot help but look back, and is determined to return to rescue his city and the family that remains. Seeking support in his mother’s homeland, he discovers that his connection to the marid goes far deeper than expected and threatens not only his relationship with Nahri, but his very faith. As peace grows more elusive and old players return, Nahri, Ali, and Dara come to understand that in order to remake the world, they may need to fight those they once loved . . . and take a stand for those they once hurt.

Explanation of the Book:

Handbook of Flotation Reagents: Chemistry, Theory and Practice: Flotation of Gold, PGM and Oxide Minerals, Volume 2 focuses on the theory, practice, and chemistry of flotation of gold, platinum group minerals (PGMs), and the major oxide minerals, along with rare earths. It examines separation methods whose effectiveness is limited when using conventional treatment processes and considers commercial plant practices for most oxide minerals, such as pyrochlore-containing ores, copper cobalt ores, zinc ores, tin ores, and tantalum/niobium ores. It discusses the geology and mineralogy of gold, PGMs, and oxide minerals, as well as reagent and flotation practices in beneficiation. The book also looks at the factors affecting the floatability of gold minerals and describes PGM-dominated deposits such as Morensky-type deposits, hydrothermal deposits, and placer deposits. In addition, case studies of flotation and beneficiation in countries such as Canada, Africa, Russia, Chile, and Saudi Arabia are presented. This book will be useful to researchers, university students, and professors, as well as mineral processors faced with the problem of beneficiation of difficult-to-treat ores.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

The #1 New York Times–bestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany and now the inspiration for the PBS documentary “The Boys of ‘36'.” For readers of Unbroken, out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant. It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.
