              From Beijing's hutongs to the always undefeated city of Warsaw, follow Josh along with author Dave Norman as they explore the Far East and Eastern Europe by rail. Whether drinking with nomads in Mongolia, dining with locals in Seoul, or exploring Russian paintball combat with a r...etired Soviet arms dealer, Norman's blend of humor and history makes the adventure come alive.At its core, Following Josh is the story of two friends reuniting on an epic adventure across Eurasia. After teaching abroad, Josh is homeward bound while Dave takes the long way from their hometown to a new start in New York City-different trajectories, even while traveling together. Trapped together in stuffy Russian rail cars and cheap hostels, they realize just how far apart they've grown...and what it takes to start anew-in friendship as well as in life.Excerpt from page 134: .. .she embodies my image of a Mongol grandma: skin like oiled leather, glistening brown eyes that search through heaven and time and space, her hair a rainbow of silver, one shade for each of her two or three hundred years moving around the steppe. Dave Norman is the author of three other nonfiction books, including the history title White River Junctions and the industry-leading 501 Paintball Tips, Tricks, and Tactics. He lives and writes in Portland, Maine and Columbia, Illinois. www.davenorman.net

              What's in a name? For the picturesque island of Nahant, Massachusetts, answering that question brings you along on Viking raids, below decks on blockade-running schooners, and into harm's way in Civil War battles. Its name, Nahant, is one connection between the many subjects of S...ails and Rails. This illustrated history was carefully researched by historians Daniel deStefano and Gerald Butler, and served as deStefano's inspiration for the original artwork reproduced on these pages. This exclusive collection of his work and their research is proudly offered as homage to the island, its people, and to those who've pursued their calling upon (or near) the sea.

              In Broad Sound near Boston lies the island of Nahant--the Salem of the Sea, where history and lore combine. Long ago called Nahantus, it is very likely haunted. Might the arctic-blue aura over Bayley's Hill be the unsettled spirit of a Viking explorer killed, buried, and desecrat...ed there? Sailors, watchmen, and locals have reported it for centuries... Then there is the sea serpent of greater Boston Harbor. Have you seen it yet? Entire expeditions once put to sea to capture the serpent. It slipped away...but keeps coming back. And what of the Wicca rituals along the Ley Lines connecting Nahant to nearby Salem, as well as Stonehenge and Aztec temples? Were there witches on Nahant? Are there still? From Thorvald the Viking and the Salem Witch Trials, to modern Wicca and UFOs over Neptune's Temple, take a look inside the unexplained lore of this unassuming island. Historian, author, and Captain of the Massachusetts State Guard (retired), Gerald W. Butler, looks into these mysteries and more...and catches the US Air Force in a public relations gaff concerning the UFOs photographed above Nahant in 1959. (Hint: the objects were not weather balloons.) Carefully illustrated with historic photographs and original artwork, the truth--and deeper mysteries--beckon from Nahauntus. Published in 2019 by f/64 Publishing, Portland, Maine.

              Betty Williams discovered her life's calling while living in an orphanage-she was born to teach, protect, and encourage children wherever she may be. This became an all-consuming passion that lead her from Maine to the jungles of Brazil and far beyond. The witchdoctor's chanting ...and dancing stopped as we came through the door. He nodded and stepped back. Bob gently picked the child up, washed her face with a damp cloth, and declared that only God had power over death-and that wherever there is life, there is hope. (from page 96) This fascinating autobiography introduces a woman who was born into poverty in Auburn, Maine, and who followed her faith-and her teenage husband-into mission work in Brazil. Though often sorely tested, Betty's faith remained strong through a fascinating life spent helping children in creative ways. She delivered babies as a missionary in Brazil, taught children in Philadelphia and Alaska, and opened her homes in many places to the foster children, students, and many others who needed her. After divorcing her husband, Betty adopted three children and began a second family-one that welcomed a rotating cast of foster siblings even as she developed a later-life career teaching in Maine's schools. Blessed with many children and more than eighty years of fond memories, Betty tells her stories with wisdom, compassion...and good humor.

              In this fascinating look at White River Junction, Dave Norman relates the history of this Vermont river town to the country at large. He puts faces, names, and anecdotes to the forces shaping the American Century.The village was settled at the junction of two rivers. Two railroad... lines replaced the barge traffic, and now, two interstates make White River three times a junction. This remarkable book looks at how the town--and America-- changed through these transportation eras...and presents the lives of four locals to see how individual people are affected by technology, culture, and economics.The first five chapters tell the town's story through histories of the railroad, a hotel, a grocery, and a bakery, and an intimate portrait of New England found on the backs of postcards. The remaining chapters introduce residents whose life stories show a town--and country--in transition while begging the question, what makes a Vermonter?
