Commando By Deneys Reitz

(Revised in May 2009) Deneys Reitz was 17 when the Boer War broke out in 1899. Reitz describes that he had no hatred of the British people, but "as a South African, one had to fight for one's... More > country." Reitz had learned to ride, shoot and swim almost as soon as he could walk, and the skills and endurance he had acquired during those years were to be made full use of during the war. He fought with different Boer Commandos, where each Commando consisted mainly of farmers on horseback, using their own horses and guns. Commando describes the tumult through the eyes of a warrior in the saddle. Reitz was fortunate to be present at nearly every one of the major battles of the war. Commando is a straightforward narrative that describes an extraordinary adventure and brings us a vivid, unforgettable picture of mobile guerrilla warfare, especially later in the war as General Smuts and men like Reitz fought on, braving heat, cold, rain, tiring horses, and lack of food, clothing, and boots.< Less

Portrait of the Artist, With Spoon By M. G. Meile

Star-building otters whose flesh is incandescent plasma . . . dancing yaks who fight demons with TV screen eyes . . . telepathic kangaroos who sail across the sky . . . rainbow-maned Lions who sing... More > with the voices of men. . . . These were only a few of the creations of the artist they called "the Maker." Author, scholar, CGI wizard, the Maker was loved by millions, hated by millions more--millions who knew nothing about him. For the Maker was a man of mystery. No one knew anything about his past, or what he looked like, or where he lived . . . or of his secret plan to turn the middle of North America into a desert. But to a lonely girl without a home, the Maker was the goal of a life-long quest. And neither world-wide disaster nor death itself would keep her from finding him at last--or from asking him a single, simple question. The answer she would receive would change her life forever--and change as well, perhaps, the course of history. . . .< Less
