Jamie Tolland has only ever known his small Oregon town. Same job, same friends, same gay bar. He feels obligated to stay, especially as his mother's illness progresses. But when a situation presents itself in the form of a vintage sports car, he jumps on the chance to not only repair it, but also drive it to its new owner in LA. Conner Murphy left Oregon years ago to make his life in West Hollywood. Like his unconventional parents, he's always been a free spirit, never settling on one job or girl for too long. When he inherits his late uncle's classic Chevelle, he's more than happy to let his childhood friend Jamie help. Jamie and Conner are as different as night and day. Even after years of living apart, they still have a blast together - but now it's mixed with an undeniable spark of attraction. Before they know it, they can't keep their hands off each other. For Conner it's all new and exciting, but Jamie isn't the type of guy who takes this sort of intimacy lightly. Conner soon realizes that Jamie quenches something deep inside of him that no one has before, but he doesn't know how to handle a real relationship. As Jamie's time in LA comes to an end, and the more they struggle to get on the same page about their feelings, the more Jamie realizes that trying to tie Conner down is as futile as capturing the sun. 1.

An Irish widow with a little boy to support decides that her son would be better off on the plains of the American West than in Ireland. Connie reluctantly visits the Mail Order Bride agency in Dublin who introduce her to a very upstanding Irish gentleman who has made a name for himself over there. The best thing of all is that children coming along is perfectly acceptable. Connie and her son, Sean, sail the seas to join Conner out west. However, things are not quite as they first appear. The ranch that was promised is little more than a shack and when the local Sheriff arrives, she finds out there is more to her new husband than she could have ever guessed, and she doesn't like it at all. 1.

Masters of Chaos: The Secret History of Special...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Special Forces soldiers are daring, seasoned troops from America's heartland, selected in a tough competition and trained in an extraordinary range of skills. They know foreign languages and cultures and unconventional warfare better than any US fighters, and while they prefer to stay out of the limelight, veteran war correspondent Linda Robinson gained access to their closed world. She traveled with them on the frontlines, interviewed them at length on their home bases, and studied their doctrine, methods, and history. In Masters of Chaos she tells their story through a select group of senior sergeants and field-grade officers, a band of unforgettable characters like Rawhide, Killer, Michael T, and Alan - led by the unflappable Lt. Col. Chris Conner and Col. Charlie Cleveland, a brilliant but self-effacing West Pointer who led the largest unconventional war campaign since Vietnam in northern Iraq. Robinson follows the Special Forces from their first post-Vietnam combat in Panama, El Salvador, Desert Storm, Somalia, and the Balkans to their recent trials and triumphs in Afghanistan and Iraq. She witnessed their secret sleuthing and unsung successes in southern Iraq and recounts here for the first time the dramatic firefights of the western desert. Her blow-by-blow story of the attack on Ansar al-Islam's international terrorist training camp has never been told before. The most comprehensive account ever of the modern-day Special Forces in action, Masters of Chaos is filled with riveting, intimate detail in the words of a close-knit band of soldiers who have done it all. 1.

Captain John H. Rogers, Texas Ranger: Frances B...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

John Harris Rogers (1863?1930) served in Texas law enforcement for more than four decades, as a Texas Ranger, Deputy and U.S. Marshal, city police chief, and in the private sector as a security agent. He is recognized in history as one of the legendary "Four Captains" of the Ranger force that helped make the transition from the Frontier Battalion days into the 20th century, yet no one has fully researched and written about his life. Paul N. Spellman now presents the first full-length biography of this enigmatic man. During his years as a Ranger, Rogers observed and participated in the civilizing of West Texas. As the railroads moved out in the 1880s, towns grew up too quickly, lawlessness was the rule, and the Rangers were soon called in to establish order. Rogers was nearly always there. Likewise he participated in some of the most dramatic and significant events during the closing years of the Frontier Battalion: the Brown County fence cutting wars; the East Texas Conner Fight; the El Paso/Langtry Prizefight; the riots during the Laredo Quarantine; and the hunts for Hill Loftis and Gregorio Cortez. Rogers was the lawman who captured Cortez to close out one of the most infamous chases in Texas history. Rogers was wont to use the Bible as often as his six-gun, both with dramatic effect. That and his constant devotion to his family set him apart from the usual lawmen of that era. He was a man of the law and a man of God, a rare combination at the turn of the century. The book is published by University of North Texas Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlie Curtis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/038002/bk_acx0_038002_sample.mp3.

The Mystical State
18,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

This is not just another book, so much as a new way of seeing the world and our way of being in it. Groundbreaking, and profoundly optimistic, this is the only book to investigate how mysticism can inspire cultural and political renewal. At heart, _The Mystical State_ looks toward the future, toward what is possible on the other side of the difficult times that confront us, and how we can envision and encourage cultural emergence. In _The Mystical State_, Arthur Versluis delves into the origins of modernity and what led to the crises of our time. But he also looks to the future, and in particular, to how spirituality can inform cultural and political life in new and illuminating ways. 'Arthur Versluis's _The Mystical State: Politics, Gnosis and Emergent Cultures_, asks a question long overdue in the study of mysticism: what are the political implications of direct mystical experience and thinking? His analysis ranges freely over both ancient and modern thought and experience. His focus on Western thought, ancient and modern, is a welcome respite from the tendency to focus on Eastern meditation and philosophy among scholars of mysticism. His exploration of the marginalized is especially important. And by focusing on 'the road not taken' when Gnosticism was repudiated long ago, he dares to imagine what a new culture and state that's centered on the mystical might look like: the end of gigantism, the re-framing of life and value, and a form of political authority centered in value. It is a courageous and thought provoking book, and should open the door to a series of questions important in our struggling world.' -Robert K. C. Forman, author of _Mysticism, Mind, Consciousness_ and numerous other books on mysticism. 'It's simply amazing! Each page is a feast to both my mind and soul!' -Miguel Conner, editor of _Voices of Gnosticism_ 'A wonderful book . . . fascinating! I highly recommend that people buy it and read it as soon as possible. I can't say enough about it.' -William Kennedy, Sphinx Radio Praise for Other Works by Arthur Versluis: 'At a time when the religions of the world are meeting on a spiritual level and in a global context, it is crucial that the Christian West rediscover its often forgotten inner or esoteric wisdom. Arthur Versluis skillfully guides the reader to recover the wide range of this rich heritage.' -Ewart Cousins, general editor, _World Spirituality: An Encyclopedic History of the Religious Quest_ 'A collection of very precious clues to the sources of the Western spiritual tradition, pointing to the hidden currents both in history and in our own selves.' -Jacob Needleman, author of _The American Soul_ and _The Heart of Philosophy_
