            Memoirs of Cpl. Ira I. Boggs (1895 - 1983) (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Ira I. Boggs (1895-1983), a veteran of World War I, was a West Virginia mountaineer as rugged as the mountains in which he lived most of his life. He survived by practicing his strong Christian faith, toughened by hard work while growing up in a large family sustained only by the... fat of the land and the sweat of the brow. His machine gun battalion was alternately labeled Pershing's Pets and the Sightseeing Battalion because they followed behind the main front and traveled extensively while in ready reserve for their final sacrifice. A less envious title for a machine gun unit was The Suicide Troops. (In battle, they had an average life expectancy of seven minutes.) He was on his way to the active front when the armistice was declared, but he narrowly escaped some enemy bombs when his unit lit up their campfires in a premature anticipation of cease-fire. His extensive travels gave him a special appreciation for the natural beauty of his home state, and he had a rare talent for describing it.

            Herbert Allen Giles (8 December 1845 - 13 February 1935) was a British diplomat and sinologist who was the professor of Chinese at Cambridge University for 35 years. Giles was educated at Charterhouse School before becoming a British diplomat in China. He modified a Mandarin Chin...ese romanisation system established by Thomas Wade, resulting in the widely known Wade-Giles Chinese romanisation system. Among his many works were translations of the Analects of Confucius, the Lao Tzu (Tao Te Ching), the Chuang Tzu, and, in 1892, the widely published A Chinese-English Dictionary.

            Islamic Folklore Tales of Abu Hurairah The Father of Small Cats Bilingual Edition In English and Germany Languange. One day, his yearning to meet Allah intensified. While his visitors were invoking Allah to cure him of his disease, he was imploring Allah saying, O Allah, I love t...o meet You, so love to meet me. In AH 59, he died at the age of 78. His calm body was buried in a blessed place among the reverent inhabitants of Al-Baqii. Returning from his funeral, the people kept reciting many of the traditions that he had taught them about the noble Messenger. One of the recent Muslims asked his friends, Why was our deceased sheikh called Abu Hurairah? His knowing friend answered, In the preislamic time his name was `Abd Shams. When he embraced Islam, the Messenger called him `Abd Ar-Rahman. He used to be sympathetic towards animals. He had a cat that he used to feed, carry, clean, and shelter, and it used to accompany him as if it were his shadow. Thus, he was called Abu Hurairah, which means father of the small cats. May Allah be pleased with him.

            As a collection of short stories, the emotional impact of The Valley Between is resounding. This is a story of obedience and purpose, sacrifice, faith and doubt. Every chapter of this journey speaks to a new summit in classic storytelling wisdom. Throughout his recollection, Nath...an brings new light to the weakness and power, sensitivity and potential of Godly masculinity. Is obedience as simple as a yes ? In this open-heart exploration of Christian submission and missionary work, Nathan points to places in the human spirit that touch us all. Every man and woman is a human in need. We all hike through sprawling gorges on our way from summit to summit, looking up at the towering peaks above us. God calls us from mountain to mountain through the valley trails on which our stories are written. As we strive from one summit to the next, we grow and mature on the trails of the valley between.
