"The true story of a woman's survival at sea"
From Publishers Weekly
It was an ill-assorted crew that set out in October, 1982, to deliver a 58-foot yacht, Trashman , to Florida. John, the captain, his friend Meg and the author first sailed from Maine to Annapolis, where they picked up two more crew members, Brad and Mark. Sailing without charts, they encountered gale winds and high seas off the North Carolina coast on the second day out. A freak wave crashed through the cabin windows, and Trashman sank in minutes, leaving the crew adrift in a rubber dinghy without food and water, each one hanging onto his or her own survival. Meg had been severely injured in a fall; she developed blood poisoning and died. The second day in the dinghy, John and Mark, both delirious, went overboard. Debbie and Brad managed to hang on to their belief that they would be rescued. Four days after the sinking, they were picked up by a Russian freighter and brought to shore at Morehead City, N.C. This is a harrowing story of endurance and survival. Author tour.

Editorial Reviews at Amazon mentions "has oral sex with a boy she [a friend] doesn't know well and regrets her impulsiveness when they get back to school and he ignores her. Homosexuality and interracial dating are given brief and accepting mentions."

A mom reviewer on Amazon also said this is listed as RL 4.9 on the AR list and she said the sex was graphic.

Just wanted to post this in case it mattered.


American Eagle: The Story of a Navajo Vietnam Veteran
Review Date: 2/11/2006


Back of book
"...a powerful and remarkably readable story. It runs smoothly and swiftly along, holding on to the eye, the mind, and the heart. The wounded spirit, the intelligence, and the rage of a Navajo vet, Two-Luke Dancer, are very well indicated - but the best thing about the book is the deep, eminently real humanity that shows through. - N Scott Momaday"

Review Date: 9/1/2006


Author is Raymond S. Nelson Art Work by Stan Nelson.
From the back........ Raymond and Margaret Nelson served at Friends University for twenty years before deciding to retire in Wichita. In all, they lived in five midwestern states for over fifty years. This book is a distillation of their experiences, with a few poems drawn from even earlier years. Divided into nine sections such as Roots, Family, Worship, Seasons, and Work, the poems are a rich source of program materials for church, home, school, club and society. Then the art of their son, Stan Nelson, enhances the already rich affirmations of life lived simply as a walk with God and God's wonderful creatures.
