I am a fan of hummingbirds, so I wanted to read this. It is a story of courage and perserverance on the part of the photographer as he deals with losing his vision. Quick read.

Bought this book because i was volunteering for a crisis pregnancy center. Helped me to understand and have compassion for the feelings of a woman who had an abortion, and also inform other women what could lie ahead emotionally for them if they chose abortion.

Not a chronological book. Almost a devotional. Short prayers that a person can identify with when going thru different crises'. Then a response prayer of comfort/affirmation-usually a scripture reference-as tho it were from the Lord. Encouraging.

An evocative portrait of a pioneer family's world.
The year is 1904. At age 25, Minnesotan Carrine Gafkjen does what few women, or men of her time dare. She sets out to stake a homestead for herself on the windswept North dakota prairie. There she lives alone in her claim shack, subsisting on potatoes and salt and barring her door each night against the howling coyotes, until she becomes a woman of substance and eventually even doubles her holdings of fertile wheat-growing land. Only then, at 34, does carrine marry the homesteader with whom she will bear and raise six children. Excellent read.

Maybe Patty Jane Dobbin should know better than to marry a man a gorgeous and Thor Rolvaag, but shes too smitten to think twice. Yet nine months in to their marriage, with a baby on the way, Thor is gone. Its a good thing Patty Jane has her irrepressible sister Harriet to rely on-not to mention her extremely short, extremely rich almost-brother-in-law, Avel Ames. Its been said that a good haircut can cure anynumber of ills, and before long, the Minnesota sisters have opened a neighborhood beauty parlor complete with live harp music and an endless supply of delicious Norwegian baked goods. Its a wonderful, warm-hearted place where you can count on good friends, lots of laughter, tears, and comfort when you need it-and the unmistakable scent of somebody getting a permanent wave.......

This is an excellently written book on reclaiming the inner simplicity we all crave. Found it so exciting I had to reread it. Really struck a chord with me and im sure many other Americans caught up in the rat race of today world of more more more. What we really need is to choose less. Highly recommend this book to anyone caught in the struggle of not enough time, not enough money, piles of clutter and basic discontent.
