The story is about a premature child, who survived a primitive and hostile post slavery environment- and grew up in poverty with a single unemployed parent and four siblings. The prose, syntax and narrative of the book is uniquely island and it is colored with British and American cultural experiences. That is why the author has included personal details which have significantly influenced his life-and taught him lessons such as, how to grow and bloom in the [concrete] jungle of thorns: Irritating and choking circumstances! The book introduces the reader to historical accounts of the Author's country of origin: Jamaica West Indies. Then the book elaborates on the island's period of enslavement, bloody struggle for freedom, and subsequent birth of the nation. The reason some history and culture is included is to establish a background for the life story of the little Jamaican boy. His roller coaster life has exposed the boy (now man’s) strengths and weaknesses. Just when it seemed that he is on top, he then slides down a steep slope! And, up again! This has been the story of how his life has been. What should the reader take away from how the writer has lived his life? This Autobiography, tells the life story of a premature baby who had survived in rural Jamaica without available intensive postnatal care facilities. How? He was carried about, fastened to a pillow, with a caring and professional rural family doctor, and a loving young mother. The delicate little baby, like a beautiful orchid, grew up, and in time faced life's struggles. He struggled at play, school, work as an immigrant and as a soldier in the British Army, and especially in marriages. He has had many successes and as many failures. He has given honest accounts of his mistakes, remedial actions and recovery. The book is written to help those who face difficulties and are not able to think positively, or able to view problems as opportunities. It was written to show versatility, strength, determination, adaptability, and faith in the Almighty. These are the qualities that have allowed the writer to be happy and content. Blake hopes the reader takes all these qualities away from the reading.

The first insider account of an ancient and secretive tradition • By the first foreigner to become a member, and later an elder, of the Juna Akhara, the oldest and largest grouping of Naga Babas • Filled with true accounts of magic, miracles, ghosts, and austerities • With lessons on Hindu gods, ayurveda, and Indian culture woven throughout After traveling at age 18 from his native California to India in 1969, Rampuri was drawn to the Naga Babas, an ancient and wild order of naked yogis whom he calls the “Hell’s Angels of Indian Spirituality.” Organized into a sect by Adi Shankara in the 5th century BC, the Naga Babas see themselves as the ultimate protectors of the Sanatan Dharma, or what we call the Hindu religion. Rampuri became a disciple of a Naga Baba--a master shaman sadhu--from Rajasthan and, as foretold by astrological prophecy, soon found himself the first foreigner to become an initiate of the Juna Akhara, the oldest and largest grouping of Naga Babas with more than 50,000 sadhu members. From drinking the “Nectar of Immortality” at the source of the Ganges River to allegations of tantric murder, this autobiography is filled with true accounts of magic, miracles, ghosts, and austerities, with lessons on Hindu gods, ayurveda, mantra, and Indian culture woven throughout. Through his journey of extremes, Rampuri takes us into the mystic heart of India.

What is God like? In a world confused about God's essential character, where can seekers turn to discover his identity? The parables of Jesus reveal aspects of God's nature, according to Lloyd Ogilvie, renowned former chaplain of the U.S. Senate. In taking to heart these "earthly stories with a heavenly meaning," we get to know God revealed in his son, Jesus, and discover and do his will. Ogilvie guides readers through 29 of Jesus' stories, and shows what each one reveals about who God is and who we are meant to be. Throughout, Ogilvie's warm, accessible voice invites believers and nonbelievers alike to get acquainted with God and begin to experience His extravagant love for each and every person.

This autobiography of my life starts on the island of my birth, Jamaica, in 1962. At a young age, my father left my mother, my brother, and myself. He returned months later and illegally took me away at the age of three to live with his mistress and their unborn child. So begins The Start of the Journey: Part One of an Autobiography, a wrenching tale of my inner survival. The experiences and challenges I endured as a child empowered me for this time in my life, for I finally found the peace within me to share my story with others. I have found forgiveness, love, and respect for myself and others who were in our family circle. I cannot change my past, I can only learn and look forward to my future. I am now a stronger person who is no longer vulnerable, I have been empowered; my adversities have all been transformed into triumphs. Sandra Ward-Cooper left Jamaica for Toronto and now lives in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. She is an educator and a married mother of four children.

Jennifer O'Neill knows all there is to know about life in the fast lane. Even before she skyrocketed to movie stardom at age twenty-two, she had already experienced more than most women twice her age: international modeling at fifteen, marriage at seventeen, and motherhood at nineteen. Then came Summer of '42. If her career was already a dream come true, however, her private nightmare had just begun. The dark years that followed saw scandal and sorrow offset by beauty and style: eight marriages, nine miscarriages, a near-fatal gunshot wound, and three other near-death experiences. Even motherhood proved a painful trial when one of her husbands fell into the abyss of sexual abuse, with Aimee, the eldest of her three children, as his victim. But Jennifer O'Neill is a survivor -- by the grace of God. Now, with her faith intact, she looks back on the roller coaster of her past with an unsparing honesty tempered with compassion, humor, and a new understanding of herself. Her story is an unforgettable drama of a beautiful, intelligent, talented, whimsical, yet deeply troubled woman redeemed in the end by the gift of her spiritual awakening.
