In 1942 Maisie Renault and her sister were arrested by the Gestapo for their work with the French Resistance. They were eventually deported to the Ravensbrück concentration camp in Germany,... More > housing mainly women and children. The camp included a crematorium and a gas chamber, and was operated by the SS for profit, with inmates leased out to industries as slave labor, and used as subjects for medical experiments. By the war's end it held more than 30,000 prisoners. La grande misère is Maisie Renault's story of her nine months in this man-made hell, where brutality, starvation, sickness, filth, and degradation took a daily toll on women whose main offense was having opposed the Nazis. Maisie's story is one of loyalty, devotion, faith, endurance, and the loving and self-sacrificing support that the women gave each other, allowing some to survive the horribly cruel conditions and to testify what they saw. Jeanne Armstrong provides the first English translation of this gripping narrative.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
The story centers around Bill Van Zant who is taken aboard a flying skeleton ship one rainy Oklahoma day. The skeleton ship flies through rainstorms, picking up children from all over the world and... More > using them as slave labor to row the ship. Lt. Dahl and Captain Gaunt march the children to a mesa’s plateau where the skeletons have camped. The skeletons choose children's names from a lottery every day, and those unfortunate winners are compelled to enter a cave on the mesa where they attempt to steal gold and where they are gobbled up alive by chupacabras. After Bill and his friends, Tom and Mary, are caught while escaping, they are brought before the flamboyant Oracle Kashmir and his traitorous, tobacco-ridden, unctuous aide, Mr. Sanders, who send them to a jungle temple to retrieve a legendary artifact, the heart of bone. Told in a literate tone with dry humor, this book is for the same young adult readership who liked Roald Dahl, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Fridtjof Nansen's adventure tales.< Less
