Spectators in the Grandstand

Not only did God leave us the Holy Spirit to walk alongside us during our earthly pilgrimage, He also surrounds us with those who "were commended for their faith"-"a great cloud of witnesses," or as Williams translates Hebrews 11 and 12, a vast "crowd of spectators in the grandstands" to encourage us in our walk of faith. These are stories of some of these people told by those who knew them best-friends, relatives and, in one case, an enemy-who knew them when they were not wearing their public masks, walking on earth just like us, and who were often misunderstood, ridiculed, persecuted, sometimes killed, and always making mistakes. Yet they persevered and endured, gaining a place in the Hall of Faith.

... naturally) made it even more significant to me. I also mailed a bunch of customized postcards that held the Polaroid photos I had taken that day before from the front of Comiskey. I never sent home 17 Poet in the Grandstand.

Poet in the Grandstand

In the area of ballpark hopping, there have been a number of accounts written, recorded or talked about in recent times, sometimes for a cause or others just as a gimmick. Through Poet in the Grandstand, poet and writer Thomas Porky McDonald gives us a most unique twist on a preoccupation which has grown in the past few decades, in the wake of the closings of classic old yards and the birth of the more entertainment and nostalgia driven open-air parks. From his first trip in 1990, to the fabled Comiskey Park of Shoeless Joe Jackson, Bill Veeck and the Go-Go Sox, on through to the 2010 opening of Minnesotas fabulous Target Field, featuring the modern M&M Boys, Joe Mauer and Justin Mourneau, McDonald offers up a book that is part travelogue and part poetic tribute to all the places that men and women have gone to over the years for a very personal sense of joy. This journey, done methodically, over two decades, picks up steam as the chapters begin to flow. The effect of McDonald himself clearly growing as a poet through the years is accentuated by the fact that more and more pieces are written in the later trips. The end result is a most interesting volume of not just ballparks, but Americana, as numerous attractions taken in during those ballpark weeks and weekends are also noted and/or dissected. For fourteen seasons on his own and then six more accompanied by friend and confidant Adam Boneker, McDonalds travels, highlighted by over 300 poems, can take the reader back to a simpler time or into the possibilities of the future. In chapter and in verse, Poet in the Grandstand has something for both the baseball enthusiast and the curious traveler. Fans of the game and lovers of the road will each find much to offer within these pages.

Alone in the Light

In Chechnya, a terrible mistake costs a brilliant young engineer his family. In Istanbul, an oil tanker on its maiden voyage sinks for no apparent reason. In Moscow, an astonishing new weapon threatens to upset the balance of world power. And in Sochi, a cutting-edge energy facility opens for business. Movlady Saidov is a young man struggling to navigate a tightrope between rage and love, embroiled in a complex web of conspiracy only partly of his own making. His story is fiction, but the technology, the politics, and the tension are as real as the headlines of yesterdays newspaper. This is Swains most compelling thriller yet, drawing together the seemingly unrelated worlds of cryogenic fuel technology and directed energy weaponry and placing them at the center of a high-stakes game of global geopolitics. It will keep you guessing. It will keep you thinking. It will keep you engrossed until the final climactic moments.

Biting the Dust

To the fan, the rodeo cowboy is the distinctly American embodiment of the romantic Old West. But to the young men who live the profession, the realities are modest pay, continuous travel, and the constant threat of injury. While he was the Denver bureau chief of the New York Times, Dirk Johnson spent a year on the professional rodeo circuit with cowboys, watching them try to hang on to bucking horses and Brahma bulls?and to wives and livelihoods that seemed only one fall away from disappearing. Biting the Dust covers the circuit?s biggest events in Denver, the capital of the New West, to small towns on the Great Plains like McCook, Nebraska, where rodeo continues to thrive even as the population shrinks. Johnson takes the reader beyond sentimental visions of the rodeo cowboy and the American West and provides an unforgettable and authentic story of the rodeo today.

Though the players make the highlight reels, for fans of Major League Baseball the actual ballparks are often the seat of affection and team loyalty. Players come and go, get traded, retire, but the parks remain for decades. This work recounts the histories of the classic parks, those that were built between 1909 and 1923, and the last games that were played in them when their teams finally moved on.

Urbanus the Kingdom Chronicles

In the times before time, a great and glorious kingdom named Urbanus once existed. Urbanus: The Kingdom Chronicles is an epic parable recounting the historical conflict between invisible and universal forces that perpetually contend for the hearts and minds of men. The people of Urbanus were compelled to choose between liberty and tyranny and ultimately life and death. The uniqueness of the characters in the story testifies to the reality that those who cannot rule themselves will be ruled by tyrants. The larger-than-life cast of characters in this multidimensional epic include Abner the Seer, messenger of King Salem; Wain of Lair, captain of the Northern Rangers; his brother, Lothair, lieutenant of the rangers; their ranger cohorts: the Brothers Fairn, the Men of Invar, and Lon of Mark; Macoot, the elusive chieftain of the Toon; Jurius Hanner, guardian of the Jasper Stone and grandfather of Daylin Hanner, a young daydreamer who is the chosen instrument of King Salem; Souteneur, the notorious godfather of crime and corruption of the underworld of Urbanus. They represent the forces of light. Sanballat, the evil emir of the Southern Kingdom along with a complex host of supporting personalities and creatures represent the forces of darkness.

Firefighters

An unforgettable journey through the daily lives of the brave men and women who have made saving lives their profession. Dennis Smith, author of Report from Engine Co. 82, traveled across the country talking to dozens of America’s firefighters to put together this powerful collection of their own descriptions of their most dramatic and intense experiences on the job. Their stories, compiled here, are timeless testimonies to the human capacity for heroism and nobility. Focusing on the most courageous firefighters, from those who have been decorated for heroism to those who have been seriously injured, Firefighters presents the extraordinarily rich and rugged voices of men and women who fight urban building fires, who battle sweeping forest fires, who perform emergency rescues, and who face extreme danger and risk as part of their everyday lives. Sometimes brave, sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet or filled with anger, these voices combine to make Firefighters both a riveting adventure drama and a moving chronicle of American heroism at its finest.
