It is the story of some of his boyhood events in Texas during the days of corn and cotton. It tells of his move with his family to the Peace River country of Northern Alberta.

An eleven-year-old Navajo boy is taken by force from his Arizona reservation home and bussed to Fort Sill Indian School near Lawton and Fort Sill, Oklahoma, in 1949. The U.S. law requires the Navajo children to attend school in a federally operated boarding school. The boy is treated roughly at his capture and on the bus trip. He vows to escape from the school and walk/run back the eight hundred miles back to his home, realizing he has no money and does not trust the white man. He is forced to rely on his survival skills. He makes several friends at the school. However, in the spring, he leaves at night and starts his journey home. The challenges he faces at the school and also his journey and how he overcomes those challenges are detailed. When he finally reaches his home area, he hears crying from several people and creeps through the sagebrush to see what is happening. The same government agents who seized him are trying to wrestle an eight-year-old girl from her mother and grandmother and put her on the bus. But while that happens, the boy slips unnoticed on to the bus and invites all the children to follow him, and he will hide and protect them until the agents have gone and stopped looking for them. Twenty-one of the children come with him, and he hikes for two days, covering his trails, until he reaches an old unknown cliff dwelling that he and his family had stayed at many times. It is well hidden. For close to a year, the children survive in the cliff dwelling, learning Indian skills from the boy and school skills from a twelve-year-old girl. Meanwhile, a large political battle takes place for many months, and finally, the law is changed so the Navajo children can stay on the reservation to learn the white man's ways and education. When all the papers have been signed by the Congress and the president, the children's group is able to return home. A large dinner is planned by the tribal council for their return. At this dinner, the boy, Jeff White Cloud, has his name formally changed by the tribal leaders to Nasha Bi³ Hoga, He Who Walks Alone.

Now in mass market, Mary Higgins Clark’s thirtieth and most spine-chilling novel—“so good that it might as well have come with a soundtrack” (The Columbus Dispatch)—includes identity theft, revenge, and murder... Alexandra “Zan” Moreland, a gifted, beautiful interior designer on the verge of a successful Manhattan career, is terrified to discover that somebody is not only using her credit cards, but may also be impersonating her in a scheme that involves the much more brutal crimes of kidnapping and murder. Already haunted by the disappearance of her own son, Matthew, kidnapped in broad daylight two years ago in Central Park, Zan has been left torn between hope and despair. Now, on what would be Matthew's fifth birthday, photos surface that seem to show Zan kidnapping her own child, followed by a chain of events that suggests somebody has stolen her identity. Hounded by the press, under investigation by the police, attacked by both her angry ex-husband and a vindictive business rival, Zan, wracked by fear and pain and sustained only by her belief that Matthew is still alive, sets out to discover who is behind this cruel hoax. What she does not realize is that with every step she takes toward the truth, she is putting herself—and those she loves most—in mortal danger from the person who has ingeniously plotted out her destruction.

The Woman Who Walked Alone By: Christine Wilson All I can do now is keep moving forward and keep finding ways to help others the best I can. Those were the moments when my life felt most fulfilled – the moments I could see the joy on someone’s face because of something I’d done for them. The moments where I showed God’s love. And in those moments, I didn’t feel so alone anymore. Christine Wilson grew up in a small town in the south during the 1940s. Growing up in a large poor family was difficult – but there was always enough love and support to go around. When she was eighteen, Christine left home to find her own way. She never imagined just how lonely that way would be. At first, Christine’s life was exciting: she was a popular waitress, in love with a handsome soldier, and soon a mother. But he had lied about his divorce and returned to his wife – leaving Christine a single mother to two young boys. Spirited and determined, Christine provided for her family and eventually owned and managed a successful café. She thought she had found love with two other men, but found her sacrifices and support always met with betrayal. In a life of struggle, Christine has had to walk away from failed relationships, dishonest men, and an abusive husband. In many trials, she has had to walk alone. But all has been worth it for her four treasured sons: Teddy, Ronald, Daniel, and Christopher. Loving them has given her life purpose and joy.
