Czechoslovakian cars represent an interesting part of European automotive heritage, but with the exception of Skodas they are little known in the UK. This book covers the history of car design and production in Czechoslovakia from 1918 to 1989. Production cars and some interesting prototypes are described with their technical details, strong points and weaknesses. While some Czechoslovakian cars were ground-breaking, others were more conservative. However, they were mostly well built and reliable, admittedly with some sad exceptions. The more important models are compared with their British and continental European counterparts. The book contains a number of photographs, both originals and those showing restored cars. While more than 90% of the book focuses on the technical side, Cars From My Old Country also summarises the historic and political context in which these cars were designed and built.

The stories in Muscle Cars explore the unique and sometimes flawed relationships between men, their families, and their friends.

Green Wood and Chloroform

Like many new general practitioners in the 1950s, Dr. Anthoy Betts faced few real opportunities under the new British National Health Care system. So, with little more than a suitcase, he and his wife and two babies set off for the U.S.A. Moving to rural Maine in the middle of January, they quickly learned practical lessons about snow tires, long johns, dry gas, and the distinction between "green" and "white" firewood. Dr. Betts also found that his new practice sometimes required procedures not endorsed in any modern medical text—for example, home births took place atop a thick layer of newspapers spread on the floor in front of the wood stove! He was expected to be on call at all times, though he learned that if he hung a "Gone Fishing" sign on his door nobody would question his absence. And he also quickly learned not to trust verbal directions to houses on back-country roads. Despite the differences of language and social custom, the young urban Englishman was welcomed by most of his patients and fellow doctors—even sharing an office with Dr. Jack Hornberger, the real Hawkeye and author of M*A*S*H, newly returned from Korea to build his own practice. Dr. Betts's sense of humor helped him adapt to the strange culture he encountered in Maine. And it is that same wry amusement that makes this memoir so immensely enjoyable.

Do events happen by chance or are they orchestrated by God to achieve His purpose? A Tiger Cruise is scheduled by the U.S. Navy, and then tragic events occur to cause a postponement. Two years later, it finally happens. Two women are rescued off a fishing vessel by sailors of a Trident nuclear submarine. One is an attractive nineteen-year-old pianist with a concert scheduled in ten days at the Hollywood Bowl. Due to a threat from a North Korean fast-attack submarine in the vicinity, both women are required to remain submerged with the officers, chiefs, sailors, and navy dads until the crisis is resolved. Romance is in play as the younger woman, Julie, meets a handsome young sailor, David. He is immediately attracted to Julie's beauty, but she wants nothing to do with the young sailor-especially his Christianity. As much as David is attracted to Julie and her music, he sees her internal war and wonders if their professional and spiritual differences would even allow romance to bloom. Roger Quam lives in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He enjoys gardening, writing, classical music, and church work. In 1963 he met Martha on a Greyhound bus and they have been happily married for forty-five years. They have four children, two grandchildren and attend Prairie Hills Covenant Church in Sioux Falls. He attended the U of Minn. and has had four careers: managing in various industries, owning a business, and working at a Christian rescue mission. He retired in 2006 from Citibank. In 2003 he was one of twenty navy dads invited to spend four days with their sons on the USS Michigan Trident Submarine on a Tiger Cruise. Roger has authored two other Christian novels: The Hobo and The Road to Gambela, both published by Xulon.

Stranded in Skin and Bones follows a boy's life from the day he routinely returns home from middle school to discover that his mother has fled her marriage, abandoned her children, and taken most of the furniture and belongings from their home. And out of this moment Stofel is left to face the world on his own, with less than no help from the adults in his life, and with all the help of his melancholy group of friends--Coconut, an orphan at the Baptist Children's home; and Jill, a Christian, who has a difficult time remaining faithful to her convictions. Through it all Stofel brings X-ray vision to this strip-search of the human soul and psyche, sparing no one--including himself. The result is a memoir packed with enough explosive scenes and quirky, dysfunctional souls--searching for purpose and meaning--that you will find yourself cheering for their utter survival. Always redemptive, sometimes hilarious and poignant, even disturbing, but fundamentally wise on the subjects of darkness and light, substance abuse and recovery, Stofel takes the human struggle to the streets of faith. It's an utterly fresh take on the painful process of redemption and our need for better education.

This is the real-life story of a boy-child's journey to man-child whose start in life began in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia during the Great Depression. The journey takes him to Colorado, where for the first ten years of his life, he was raised by his maternal grandparents, with stop-offs from time to time with foster parent friends of his mother. He was placed in a home for needy children during the war years, 1942-1945. He left the home in 1946 at age 15 and journeyed the difficult teen years as a high school dropout taking jobs ranging from the work camps of the forest service to the oil fields of Wyoming and the fishing boats of California. His feelings, thoughts, and actions along the way are those of a boy-some dumb, some silly, and some maybe even profound. He knew cruel and frozen homelessness and hunger firsthand, as well as the kindness of strangers. The reader will meet the mentors who helped shape the boy's life: the loving and caring grandmother, the hard-as-nails grandfather, the nineteen-year-old seductress, the pool shark instructor, the crap shooters, the ex-GIs, some tough guys, some delicate guys, some good girls, some bad girls, and some people dumb as a rock and some smart as a whip. They all contributed to who the boy became.

Is your mind actually able to send and receive messages from other people’s brains? Explore these secrets now revealed by the author’s quest. Enjoy the facts and results of the latest neuroscience as they now unfold. Revelations of Your Self-Help Book Secrets begins with explaining the brain’s function, the role of quantum physics, and our current incomplete knowledge of the neuroscience of dreaming. This fascinating journey through science and self-help literature explores what we call “psychic phenomena.” Author Lancaster Adams is a medical doctor, surgeon, scientist, and medical missionary. In the book, he describes his quest to comprehend the underlying science of a disturbing dream, one with a premonition he had just before his father’s illness killed him. Across a span of 6,000 miles, the dream communicated hard facts about his father’s previously unknown mortal illness. The incident prompted real communication that confirmed his father’s impending death, prompting him to ask how this type of premonition is possible. Using light-hearted humor and anecdotes, Revelations illuminates how our brains actually work. Perhaps through our shared humanity, we can identify aspects of our lives that will prove we are not alone in an existential nothingness. And, perhaps we can also learn the answers our brains hold that the best computers in the world can’t answer.
