THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER 'Affectionate, evocative, illuminating. A story of survival - of a flock, a landscape and a disappearing way of life. I love this book' Nigel Slater 'Triumphant, a pastoral for the 21st century' Helen Davies, Sunday Times, Books of the Year 'The nature publishing sensation of the year, unsentimental yet luminous' Melissa Harrison, The Times, Books of the Year Some people's lives are entirely their own creations. James Rebanks' isn't. The first son of a shepherd, who was the first son of a shepherd himself, he and his family have lived and worked in and around the Lake District for generations. Their way of life is ordered by the seasons and the work they demand, and has been for hundreds of years. A Viking would understand the work they do: sending the sheep to the fells in the summer and making the hay; the autumn fairs where the flocks are replenished; the gruelling toil of winter when the sheep must be kept alive, and the light-headedness that comes with spring, as the lambs are born and the sheep get ready to return to the fells.

Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-French thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of A Shepherds Life by William Henry Hudson was edited for three audiences. The first includes French-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or French speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in French in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's French Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in French or English.TOEFL, TOEIC, AP and Advanced Placement are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book.

Helping Pastors & People Understand, Embrace, and Respect Each Other in Love
Author: Pastor VaNessa Young
The truth is that connecting to a local assembly can be one of the most fulfilling, life changing experiences that Believers may have the pleasure of experiencing in their lives. Even though this should be a liberating experience, I have had the displeasure of observing the extreme opposite: feelings of not fitting in and expecting the best only to find out the culture of this body of Believers is not for them. If YOU are at the crossroads of this crucial, life-changing decision, this book is for you. A few variables will be revealed to help aid in your decision-making process. If, through prayer and agreement, you read this book in alignment with its purest intent, you will also gain the necessary tools on how to understand and glean from your shepherd’s love language, a building process that is essential in having a harmonious relationship.
First published in 1928. This book collects together over one hundred sources by Elizabethan authors which show English life in English literature. Most of them have been selected as much to catch the atmosphere as the moods of the period, and come from the great Elizabethan writers who can transmit the essence of the time. A 'gallery of Elizabethan pictures' rather than a complete survey of life in Shakespeare's day, the spelling and punctuation have been modernized throughout. To enable those who wish to read the extracts in their context, references are given to the most accessible editions.
The one word that encompasses the life of Apostle Lymus L. Johnson, from the early stages of his ecclesiastic career up through this present day, is "inspirational." Through his struggles in the early years - eating apples for breakfast, apples for lunch, and apples for dinner - fried, stewed and baked - he has inspired people to keep the faith, for he has never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging for bread. He has inspired preachers to continue in the way of the truth - to cry loud and spare not. Exhorting them to lift up their voices like a trumpet in Zion. Charging them to preach the truth, be it in season or out of season. To this very day his doctrine has not changed. Because the Lord has kept him in relative good health through the years, he inspires both young and old - letting them know that the Lord is a keeper, a deliverer, and a healer. He inspires you to hold on to see what the end is going to be. To look at his life - his meager beginnings to where he is today - he is a living testimony that if you seek first the kingdom of heaven and all its righteousness, blessings and all your desires will be added unto you. He has inspired people, through the word of God, to live their lives to Jesus Christ - be baptized in his name, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and continue on to become "great" in their own unique way in the eyes of the Lord. Many have been saved, reclaimed and inspired by the ministry of Apostle Lymus L. Johnson. The following is not only the story of the consecrated life of Apostle Lymus L. Johnson, but also a look into the ministry itself with all of its struggles and triumphs. It is a living, printed testimony of what God can do! I'm sure that each of you who read this book will identify with some part of it. How your life or someone's life you know of has been affected in a similar manner. Many have tried to capture the uniqueness of his ministry... the "holler," the "comedy" and even his "assimilation of the scriptures." In this we can all agree, there is not another Apostle Lymus Johnson. Book jacket.
Comprising an Account of the Struggle for Liberty in the Island, and a Sketch of Its History to the Present Period
Author: John Relly Beard
Publisher: UNC Press Books
Category: Social Science
Toussaint L'Ouverture (1743-1803) won international renown in the Haitian fight for independence. He led thousands of former slaves into battle against French, Spanish, and English forces, routing the Europeans and seizing control of the entire island of Hispaniola. L'Ouverture became governor and commander-in-chief of Haiti before officially acknowledging French rule in 1801, when he submitted a newly written constitution to Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) and the French legislature for ratification. In response, Bonaparte sent an army to depose L'Ouverture, who was taken prisoner in June of 1802 and shipped to France, where he died of pneumonia in April 1803. The Life of Toussaint L'Ouverture (1853) was first published in London on the fiftieth anniversary of L'Ouverture's death and remained the authoritative English-language history of L'Ouverture's life until the late twentieth century. Throughout the text, John Relly Beard compares L'Ouverture to famously successful white generals, argues for his supremacy, and states that his ultimate failure to liberate Haiti and untimely death are the products of unfortunate circumstances--not an indictment of his character or leadership abilities.
