Download Free Lady Bird PDF by Jan Jarboe Russell Full Book and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2014-12-16 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A revealing biography of Lady Bird Johnson with startling new insights into her marriage to Lyndon Baines Johnson and her unexpectedly strong impact on his presidency. Long obscured by her husband's shadow, Claudia "Lady Bird" Johnson emerges in this first comprehensive biography as a figure of surprising influence and the centering force for LBJ, a man who suffered from extreme mood swings and desperately needed someone to help control his darker impulses. Expertly researched and written, Lady Bird draws from rare conversations with the former First Lady and from interviews with key members of Johnson's inner circle of friends, family, and advisers. With chapters such as "Motherless Child," "A Ten-Week Affair," and "LBJ's Midlife Crisis," Lady Bird sheds new light on Mrs. Johnson's childhood, on her amazing acumen as a businesswoman, and on the central role she played in her husband's life and political career. A vital link to the Kennedys during LBJ's uneasy tenure as vice president and a voice of conscience on civil rights, Lady Bird is portrayed here as a political force, strikingly different from the somewhat minor figure depicted in previous works on LBJ. Especially fascinating today, in light of the enormous attention now focused on the private lives of our leaders, are the personal details about her marriage to a man whose extramarital affairs were widely discussed. In this intimate portrait, Russell shows us the private Lady Bird -- not only a passionate conservationist but a remarkable woman who greatly influenced her husband, his administration, and the country.
Download Free The Impossible Bird PDF by Patrick O'Leary Full Book and published by Tor Books. This book was released on 2003-03-05 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There is a place—a world—where famine and poverty do not exist. Nor sickness nor misery nor unhappiness of any kind. Is it Heaven? As two brothers are about to discover, it's more like Hell. Michael Glynn is a hotshot director addicted to a there's-no-success-like-excess hedonism. Daniel Glynn is a professor of literature, devoted husband, and doting father with a quietly buttoned-down life. Brothers bound by blood. But brothers waging a private civil war—an emotional feud of lies and deceit and dark secrets buried but not forgotten. But all that is about to change. One day the brothers are visited simultaneously by gun-wielding strangers claiming to be agents of an elite government security agency. Each brother is questioned about the whereabouts of the other. What they want is "the code." The strangers are convinced one of the brothers possesses the code, but they aren't sure which. Having maintained only sporadic contact, Michael and Daniel can be of no assistance. Or so they think. The strangers will not take no for an answer. Their instructions are simple: find your brother or die. But what begins as a cross-country manhunt—brother converging on brother—turns into an odyssey of discovery neither could have imagined. It is a journey that will take them to a world of perfect human happiness. A world purged of suffering. A world without death. A world where a life can be relived and mistakes corrected. Both have been given a second chance. The question is, is a second chance what they really need? For Michael and Daniel the answer to that question will be found by unraveling the mystery of the impossible bird.

Book excerpt: A SYNOPSIS In the middle of the twelfth century on the island of Sitka in Southeast Alaska, a young Tlingit boy, YASIKOO, stands with tears in his eyes on the rocky wet beach of SHEE-ATIKA. He is thirteen, has finished his initiation and now at this first opportunity to prove his new manhood, is ordered to stay behind. His father, KAA-SHAADEI and seven other men are on their way by canoe to an important trading mission to the Stahkin River in the south. Some inner fear, some deep knowing tells Yasikoo that his father and the others are headed into grave danger. He tries in vain to warn them. A?AKA-LIGOAN, Yasikoo?s grandmother is a powerful shaman. She has the ability to see future events. Carefully, she has been encouraging and preparing her grandson for the most important decision of his life. Grandmother tells him about the wondrous gift coming to him from across the great water, GANOOK, the petrel. At the gathering in Hoonah for the High Chief CHAAK SE?, Yasikoo and his mother KEIOLADEE learn that Kaa-shaadei and his men have been taken prisoner and are now slaves of the TAHLTAN tribe. Their captor is the strange foreign giant REDHAIR. He has white skin, green eyes, and hair the color of salmon flesh. Yasikoo grows impatient with the slow careful planning of the elders and decides to go alone to rescue his father. Before he leaves a terrible storm washes the wreckage of a large boat ashore on Middle Island. On this wreck Yasikoo finds a bronze casting of a seabird. While prying this thing loose it falls to the rocks below and rings. It rings. No one here has ever heard a sound like this. No one here, Yasikoo knows, has ever seen anything like this. This is Ganook, the gift from the sea that his grandmother spoke of. Perhaps with this amazing thing Yasikoo can buy his father?s freedom. Yasikoo leaves now to face the wild and stormy Southeast Alaskan coast alone; to face the frightening Redhair alone. With courage and wisdom beyond his years, Yasikoo wages a strange intense battle against his enemies. He faces death; His grandmother?s power sustains him. He faces enormous fear; the faith and legends of his ancestors embolden him. He faces terrible loss; grief strengthens him. He faces victory and victory will change his life forever.

Download Free One Bird PDF by Kyoko Mori Full Book and published by Henry Holt and Company (BYR). This book was released on 2014-07-29 with total page 242 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I try to see him among a migrating flock--he will take the loneliness of my room on his long journey; each whistling note he makes will be a little of my sadness falling over the ocean, to be swallowed in the clash of waves and the commotion of many birds flying. "Tell me the truth," demands fifteen-year-old Megumi Shimizu as her mother hurriedly packs. But her mother refuses to admit that she is leaving forever--leaving her husband to his mistress, her home to her silent, resentful mother-in-law, her daughter to survive, if she can. Angry at everyone's polite lies, Megumi realizes that she has a secret of her own: Even though she goes to church, to Bible study class, and to the Christian Girls' Academy, she no longer believes in God. Only Dr. Mizutani, the "spinster lady" veterinarian, tells the truth, and she warns that single birds without their mothers often die. In One Bird, a coming-of-age novel about mothers and daughters, about best friends, boyfriends, and families, Kyoko Mori uses folktales, images of birds, and details of bird life to explore the bonds of love that go deeper than lies. As Megumi learns how to care for injured waxwings, crows, sparrows, and one abandoned grosbeak, she begins her own flight toward truth, and toward home.

Download Free The Bird Book PDF by Patsy Levang Full Book and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2010-10-18 with total page 108 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There was only the bird book to tell her story. She left it as unfinished as her life seemed to be. The question of who she was led me to begin searching for the answers. Years ago I should have started searching while she was still alive; however, I did not really know about her until it was too late. I refused to have her life and legacy forgotten, and yet I was so slow in acting. I suppose there are those who would say that I should not invade the territory of one who is already gone. However, it has always been in me to find out the answers, and so for that reason, Alma's story must be told. She left her story in phrases she composed. She left her story in the pieces of artwork she created. She left her story in the memories of those who knew her.

Download Free The Lure of the Honey Bird PDF by Elizabeth Laird Full Book and published by Birlinn. This book was released on 2013-08-01 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1967, at the age of 23, Elizabeth Laird set off for Addis Ababa to take up her first teaching post. She was introduced to Haile Selassie, made a pilgrimage across the mountains on foot to the ancient city of Lalibela, hitched a ride on an oil tanker across the Danakil Desert, and was arrested for a murder she had not committed. Back in Britain, Laird established herself as a major author of fiction for children and young adults, but she always wanted to return to Ethiopia. Her chance came in the late 1990s, when the British Council in Addis Ababa invited her to collect folk stories from every region of the country. Encountering ex-guerrilla fighters, camel traders, Coptic nuns and tribespeople en route, Laird has written a remarkable account of her journey interwoven with a treasure trove of stories featuring princes and maidens, snakes and lions, zombies and hyena-women.
