The shoes were always black. Black was better, grandfather said. More practical. Better dyes. Martin Jordan should know. He was a shoemaker and practical German immigrant. Practical realities drove... More > life in that era. Soup made from chicken feet, salvaging unburnt coal from the furnace ashes and winters with daily doses of cod liver oil. "We were in poverty, but we didn't even know it." So recalls Louise Margaret Johnson in Shoes with Buttons. She relates childhood memories including simple joys such as Baby Ruth candy bars (the Babe was still playing baseball at the time), mittens made from socks, and Maypole dances. These memories, woven together become a story traversing adversities, as well as surprising opportunities, including a scholarship to an exclusive girl's camp that changed the direction of her life. The result is a book tht helps us understand yesterday, as well as providing an example of how to reach for tomorrow.< Less

"It is the sheer diversity of Tom's work that takes your breath away.This is graphically illustrated by the first and last poems.'The Det' takes you to a situation that, thank God, most of us... More > have never had to face, and leaves you wondering how you would have coped. Less bravely, then and afterwards, I suspect. 'The Missing Sock' with its wit and humour is a wonderful cheery,cheeky finish to this collection. And in between? All life (and death)is here.Tom's struggles with the demon cancer, (long may he go on winning this battle!),his military experiences, and shining through the collection, his love for Paula. Tom writes beautifully and honestly, with a rare ability to illuminate large topics with a sideways glance at the small everyday incidents to which we all relate. Thank you, Tom."

I’m grateful for gnomes, cuckoo clocks, gnarled branches, and moss. For coffee and chai and nutmeg. For citron yellow, magenta, peacock blue, chartreuse, and tangerine. For lanterns hanging... More > in trees. For all the libraries I have known and loved. I’m thankful for vintage lamps. I’m thankful for tall glasses of cold water, and a jelly jar full of red wine. For the pleasure of walking aimlessly. For thrift store velvet, striped socks, picture books about witches, and for mountains I can see from my front porch. For the remarkable cities I have called home. For fireflies. For my chickens Mary and Rhoda. For stacks of books on the nightstand. For low-wattage bulbs. For patches and old embroidered denim. And I’m thankful for our wall heater that’s like a fireplace and a gathering spot for our family when we hear its click-whoosh. We meet there. I’m so thankful for them–my four, my loves. And our heat, and our home, which is strung with lights and filled with magic.< Less

Poems for Patty By Thomas Duane Armstrong
Hardcover: $23.85
Prints in 3-5 business days
My father used to write short poems, stories, limericks and observations about current events within the family. He would often hide these little gems about the house like Easter eggs. My mom was... More > usually the recipient (or victim) of these poems. She might open a sock drawer, and there would be a poem. As I got older, I took an interest in these and began saving them. I regret that there were many that I did not save, and this book is really just the tip of the iceberg. My dad had a wickedly irreverent sense of humor, and these poems are not for the faint hearted. He pointed out what he thought was wrong, and right, with the world, using sarcastic wit like a surgeon uses a scalpel. The reader should keep in mind that he grew up during the Great Depression, and fought in World War II. Some of his poems were serious, like the one he wrote for me upon my graduation from high school. It is very tender and moving, and still can bring a tear to my eye. However, most of them are just rib-splitting funny.< Less

Welcome to Paradise By Isabel Stepanik
eBook (ePub): $19.99
Isabel Stepanik was barely 20 when she left her large warm extended family in Peru and crossed the world to Australia. It was the seventies and she found a country where men wore long socks and... More > shorts, ‘siestas’ were unheard of, and the streets were empty after 5 – very different from the lively culture she had left behind. The young Peruvian adventurer planned to just stay for two years. She never dreamed that she would make Australia her home, and certainly not that she would end up spending much of her working life behind the walls of Sydney’s prisons, first as a welfare officer and later as a psychologist. Isabel’s story is one of culture shock, and of a young woman’s determination to succeed in a new country. It’s also the story of life inside prison walls, of the realities and challenges of trying to help inmates to turn their lives around. It’s the story of a woman who believes everyone deserves a second chance.< Less
