Book Description :

When historian Goodwin was six years old, her father taught her how to keep score for ‘their’ team, the Brooklyn Dodgers, which forged a lifelong bond between father and daughter. Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year is a coming-of-age memoir in the era of Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese and Duke Snider, when baseball truly was a national pastime that brought whole communities together. With her radio by her side and scorecard to hand, she recreates the postwar era, when the corner store was a place to share stories and neighborhoods were equally divided between Dodger, Giant, and Yankee fans. Weaved between the games and the seasons, Goodwin tells the story of a changing America – from the lunacy of the Cold War alarm drills to McCarthy and the Rosenburg trials – as well as her own loss of innocence encapsulated by her mother’s death, her father’s lapse into despair and the Dodger’s departure from Brooklyn in 1957 following the destruction of the iconic Ebbets Field stadium. Poignant, unsentimental and deeply eloquent, Wait Till Next Year is a profound memoir about childhood and loss, baseball, and the power of sport to bind families and heal loss and reveal as metaphor the evolving heart of a nation.

Book Description :

By the award-winning author of Team of Rivals and The Bully Pulpit, Wait Till Next Year is Doris Kearns Goodwin’s touching memoir of growing up in love with her family and baseball. Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year re-creates the postwar era, when the corner store was a place to share stories and neighborhoods were equally divided between Dodger, Giant, and Yankee fans. We meet the people who most influenced Goodwin’s early life: her mother, who taught her the joy of books but whose debilitating illness left her housebound: and her father, who taught her the joy of baseball and to root for the Dodgers of Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider, and Gil Hodges. Most important, Goodwin describes with eloquence how the Dodgers’ leaving Brooklyn in 1957, and the death of her mother soon after, marked both the end of an era and, for her, the end of childhood.

Book Description :

Wait tell Next Year is the inside story of one of the most dramatic personalities of our time and a re-creation of many of the most exciting moments in modern baseball. If nothing else had counted but hits, runs and errors, Jackie Robinson wouldn't have had many problems during his years as a major figure in the sports world. But his great ability as a player was often over-shadowed by the fact that he was the first Negro in major league baseball. He was - and still is - a man of burning pride and, above all, courage. He is a man who plays to win, on and off the baseball diamond. Jackie Robinson was born in a share-croppers cabin in Georgia. He first won national fame as a college and basketball star at U.C.L.A. And later played in the Negro Baseball leagues. Then, at twenty-six backed by Branch Ricky's tough support, he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers organization. During his controversial record-breaking years with the Dodgers - and the important years since his retirement from baseball in 1956 - he has fought constantly for Negro equality and an end to racial antagonism and discrimination. WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR then is much more than a narrative of Jackie Robinson's brilliant sports career. The whole story is here, including the problems that confronted his mother and his wife and children, and the dramatic scenes when Robinson refused to submit to prejudice in the Army, in housing for his family, in baseball training camps. Robinson himself describes for the reader some of these crisis in life, and his wife speaks of the events which especially affected her. Carl Rowan one of the country's finest reporters has written this biography of a great athlete with warmth, sympathy and full awareness of its value as a spirited American document.

A Boxset collection of the first 3 books in the Chronicles of Kerrigan Prequel Series! Christmas Before the Magic - Book #1 Learn how it all began … before the magic of tatùs. When Argyle invites his best friend, Simon Kerrigan, home for the Christmas holidays, he wants to save Simon from staying at Guilder Boarding School on his own. Simon comes along and doesn’t expect to find much more excitement in the tiny Scottish town where Argyle’s family lives. Until he meets Beth, Argyle’s older sister. She’s beautiful, brash and clearly interested in him. When her father warns him to stay away from her, Simon tries, but sometimes destiny has a hope of it’s own. Question the Darkness – Book #2 Learn how it all began … before Rae Kerrigan. The sins of the father are the sins of the son. What did Rae’s father do that put fear in people’s eyes at the name Kerrigan? Simon Kerrigan is a bright kid. He likes to ask questions and push adults in their way of thinking. He’s falling for a girl he’s been warned to stay away from. Tempted by forbidden love, he also must face the biggest challenge of his life: receive a tattoo on his sixteenth birthday. This ink is going to give him a supernatural ability unlike anyone before him. When secrets of the past begin to reveal themselves, he questions everything he’s ever known. Pressure from Guilder Boarding School and the Privy Council only confuse Simon more as he struggles to find himself. How hard will he have to shake the family tree to find the truth about the past? The Chronicles of Kerrigan Prequel is the beginning of the story before Rae Kerrigan. Christmas Before the Magic is just the beginning (but not the end...) Into the Darkness – Book #3 What did Rae’s father do that put fear in people’s eyes at the name Kerrigan? After a mysterious attempt is made on his life, Simon Kerrigan has more questions than ever, and this time, he's not the only one. The beginnings of a secret society are formed at Guilder. A society of other like-minded students all unsatisfied with the status quo. All searching for the truth. But things aren't always as they seem. When Simon gets an unexpected visitor, his entire world is turned upside-down. Suddenly, the rules that were made to keep him safe, are the only things standing in his way. Who can he trust? Can he learn to master his tatù? Most importantly, can he do it in time to protect those things that are most precious to him?

Book Description :

"The dramatic growth of Christianity around the world in the last century has shifted the balance of power within the faith away from the traditional strongholds of Europe and the United States to the Global South. While we typically imagine Western missionaries carrying religion to the ends of the earth, David R. Swartz shows that the line of influence has often run the other way, as evangelicals in nations such as Korea, India, and Uganda shaped the American church from abroad. Swartz tells stories of evangelicals crossing national boundaries, offering new insights into a tradition that imagines itself as simultaneously American and part of a global communion"--
