Epilogue. "In one week, Scott Stoll lost his job, his best friend, his girlfriendand his confidence. Disillusioned with society, full of angst, a lostand wandering soul with nothing left to lose, Stoll asked himself aquestion: "If I only have one life, one chance, if I could do anything,what would I do?" His answer resulted in a 4 year and 25,742mile odyssey around the world by bicycle, seeking answers to the greatmysteries of life, vowing to find happiness or die trying. The questwasn't easy. He was imprisoned, held hostage, mugged, run over,suspected of terrorism, accused of espionage, trampled, diseased,heartbroken -- he nearly died a dozen times. But more importantly, healso discovered the wonders of the world, kindness among strangers, themeaning of life, peace, love and -- Yes! -- happiness, in the mostunlikely places. Re-live and re-imagine a journey around theworld on a bicycle as a man stumbles through moments of pure survivaland moments of pure enlightenment."--Page 4 of cover. Cover art: Augie Wiedemann.

A vestige of mirth. Faye Longchamp is doing something she hates, finding and selling artifacts. But she's doing it to save something she loves. Joyeuse, the plantation manor held by the women in her family ever since her great-great-grandmother inherited it. Faye makes a little money on the legitimate dig on a nearby island until that work is interrupted by the murder of two young members of the crew. Then bones of a much older murder are uncovered, and clues lead Faye to suspect an old friend, a long-time business partner, and a new love interest. 1: Broad, sunlit uplands --

Scuttle? : December 1946-August 1947. "'I have not become the King's First Minister in order to preside over the liquidation of the British Empire.' So declared Winston Churchill in 1942, as Britain waged a vast global conflict for its survival. Less than five years later, the conflict was won--yet with Indian independence in 1947 and Britain's departure from Palestine in 1948, the sun had set on the British Empire. In a space of a thousand days, a new age dawned, as America took over the role of world superpower. Peter Clarke's swiftly paced narrative draws on letters, diaries, and a host of other primary sources to put us vividly in the presence of the figures around whom history pivoted: Churchill, Gandhi, Roosevelt, Stalin, Truman, and other, lesser-known individuals, through whom Clarke brilliantly shows the human dimension of epochal events."--Back cover.
