We, the Elders, have done our best to represent our Red Nation as Ojibway, Cree, and Dakota. We present this story knowing it is an attempt to capture the richness and beauty of the Red Nation a people of the heart and the land. We are an oral people. We cannot transfer our way of life through written words alone. Sacred law must be spoken and heard. Our way of life is meant to be lived and experienced. Our words are meant to inspire and guide our fellow human beings to follow the path of the heart. We believe that there is one Creator for all, that there is one Mother Earth that sustains all of us. We do not own the Earth. How can anyone own their mother? We owe our existence to Mother Earth. We believe that the spirit of the original Red Man was lowered to Mother Earth and our spirit chose to be born on Turtle Island. This story tells of our human life and journey until our return back to the spirit world. We believe the Creator has always been within our reach and that we have to return to the Earth to be guided to our true purpose.

During World War II, 300,000 United States Army Air Corps airmen were shot down. Of that number, 51,000 were prisoners of war or listed as missing in action. Bombardiers, positioned in the vulnerable bombardiers’ compartment at the front of the aircraft, were in high demand. The authors’ fathers were two such bombardiers, one on a B-17 and the other on a B-24. Like so many of the post-war generation, the authors traveled on their own emotional journeys to reconstruct their fathers’ WWII experiences. Their fathers fought in the flak-ridden “blue battlefield,” and like thousands of other airmen shot out of the sky, became prisoners of war. They would endure deprivation, loneliness, and great peril. Held at Stalag Luft III, where the Great Escape of movie fame took place, they, along with the British, were eventually force marched 52-miles in the dead of winter to Spremberg, Germany, and loaded onto overcrowded, filthy, boxcars, the Americans to be taken to Stalag VIIA in Moosburg, Germany, or to Stalag XIII-D in N rnberg. Languishing until their liberation in barbaric conditions with nearly 120,000 international POWs, they witnessed the death throes of the Third Reich. With many sons and daughters trying to explore the wartime histories of their loved ones, the authors supply crucial information and insight regarding the World War II POW experience in Europe. Often times, by necessity, that experience reflects the co-existence and tenuous relationship with the Germans holding them. In this book, there are stories that up until now have not been heard, and there are hundreds of pictures, many previously unseen, illustrating the prisoners’ plight. This book is a documentation of riveting history and a chance to vicariously live the war, told through their voices --echoes now fading with time. Their sacrifices to ensure precious freedom should never be forgotten.
The Christian life is a journey of ups and downs, ins and outs, and twists and turns on this thing we call the “straight and narrow” path! You were made for a deep and intimate relationship with Christ, but there is a gap between where you are and where God wants you.

From the Preface In commenting on the journey of the children of Israel from Egypt to Canaan, the Apostle Paul said in I Cor 10:11, "All these things happened unto them by way of example and are written for our admonition." Here Paul teaches us that we can learn from this account of the history of Israel in two basic ways: (1) by looking at the example they set, and (2) by examining the fundamental principles and admonitions derived from their experiences. In these studies, we hope to accomplish two things: see their example and discover "the Gospel of the Canaan journey." It has often been said that there is no gospel in the Old Testament. The writer does not agree with this position and believes that there is just as much gospel in the Old Testament as in the New. It is there in type and symbol, in object lessons. The people looked forward to the cross in Old Testament times, but today people look back to the cross. The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed; the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. Beautifully pictured in the Pentateuch is the Gospel of the Canaan Journey. These lessons have been prepared to make available practical material suitable for the pulpit, devotionals, Sunday school lessons, and prayer meeting discussions. The method of chronological development reveals the way the gospel is seen today. By making application, the reader is enabled to apply gospel truth and the saving power of Jesus Christ to his own soul and to those to whom he might minister. Herbert W. Byrne

The pilgrimage to Mecca, or Hajj, has been a yearly phenomenon of great importance in Muslim lands for well over one thousand years. Each year, millions of pilgrims from throughout the Dar al-Islam, or Islamic world, stretching from Morocco east to Indonesia, make the trip to Mecca as one of the five pillars of their faith. By the end of the nineteenth century, and the beginning of the twentieth, fully half of all pilgrims making the journey in any given year could come from Southeast Asia. The Longest Journey, spanning eleven modern nation-states and seven centuries, is the first book to offer a history of the Hajj from one of Islam's largest and most important regions.
