Roommates: My Grandfather's Story by Max Apple
A touching, true story about the oddest of odd couples: Rocky, the scrappy old baker, and Max, his bookworm grandson. For years they shared a household; not to mention laughter, tears, battles, and heartaches. It was often a closer relationship then either of them wanted, especially when a new friend came into young Max's life. But it was a bond that strengthened them both. And when tragedy struck, a very old man discovered he had a new job: holding a family together.
White Harvest by Louis Charbonneau
The Alaskan coastal tundra looks forbidding and desolate, but it fairly teems with life: seabirds, fur seals, and walruses. Yet where these animals congregate, poachers are sure to follow. And the quarry this time is the biggest prize of all, a magnificent old walrus whose tusks alone will bring a fortune in the Hong Kong market. But two people stand in the poachers' way: John Mulak, a tough old Eskimo, and Kathy McNeely, a spunky wildlife scientist. The author of The Ice has written a crackling adventure tale of the wild.
This book is from the popular Reader's Digest Select Editions series, which contains four condensed stories from popular authors. A great read! (This is a hardcover book in great shape, but it's missing the original paper jacket that went over it)
