Содержание:
Join Kathleen and Michael Pitt as they leave the comfort and temperate climate of suburban Vancouver to spend an isolated winter north of the Arctic Circle. With neither power nor running water, over 40 kilometres from the nearest community of 75 people, this middle-aged couple learns to embrace temperatures that regularly fall below minus 40 degrees. From their home base in a small, one-room cabin, they seek the challenge of winter camping and the adventure of expeditions across the ice. In January 1999, the Pitts flew by Twin Otter to Colville Lake to pursue Michael's life-long dream of living beyond the reach of roads and concrete. By the time the ice went out of the lakes and rivers in mid-June, their lives had been changed forever. Michael and Kathleen Pitt had been paddling the rivers of Northern Canada for ten years. Yet their experience seemed incomplete. Summer is for visitors. Michael needed to spend a winter in the North, where rivers, lakes and muskeg remain frozen for 7...

Max Factor: The Man Who Changed the Faces of the World

Not so long ago, nice girls never wore make-up--in fact, the word itself was taboo! Only stage performers and prostitutes painted their faces. But that was before a man named Max Factor revolutionized the concept of beauty. Born in Poland in 1877, Max Factor worked as a beautician and wigmaker to the Russian imperial family, the Romanovs. In 1904, a year after Czar Nicholas II ordered the Jewish pogroms, Max Factor fled with his family to America. He first settled in St. Louis, where he had an exhibit at the World's Fair, before moving to Los Angeles in 1908. There he opened a shop selling cosmetics and wigs. Located in the theater district, the store catered to stage actors. But the birth of a newfangled entertainment called the "movies" changed everything. As film technology advanced--from silent films to talkies and ultimately to color motion pictures--Max Factor created the make-up to keep up with it. He designed looks for Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Rita Hayworth, and...

MSW Rev. Dawn Sutton

God's Girl

You have probably never read a true "overcomer" story quite like "God's Girl" before. Dawn has barely escaped death nine times, three times by the age of four - and, at the hands of her own mother! Dawn felt very much like an orphan as a child, and yet, all the while, without her awareness, she was always "God's Girl." During the early years of neglect and abuse, God was with her. All through the teen years when she ran away from home, did drugs, and suffered from depression, God was watching over her. When she attempted suicide at the tender age of fourteen and eighteen, God intervened. When she surrendered her heart and life to Him in her early twenties it changed everything - nonetheless, more heartaches and trials followed. Dawn experienced a broken engagement, an abusive marriage, a miscarriage, single parenthood, and the devastating suicide of her father. Dawn is now an author, minister, teacher/speaker, and a successful psychotherapist. This is an amazing story - a...

Angels and Ages: A Short Book About Darwin, Lincoln, and Modern Life

On a memorable day in human history, February 12, 1809, two babies were born an ocean apart: Abraham Lincoln in a one-room Kentucky log cabin; Charles Darwin on an English country estate. It was a time of backward-seeming notions, when almost everyone still accepted the biblical account of creation as the literal truth and authoritarianism as the most natural and viable social order. But by the time both men died, the world had changed: ordinary people understood that life on earth was a story of continuous evolution, and the Civil War had proved that a democracy could fight for principles and endure. And with these signal insights much else had changed besides. Together, Darwin and Lincoln had become midwives to the spirit of a new world, a new kind of hope and faith.Searching for the men behind the icons of emancipation and evolution, Adam Gopnik shows us, in this captivating double life, Lincoln and Darwin as they really were: family men and social climbers; ambitious manipulators...
