              Soon to be the major motion picture Greyhound, a WWII naval thriller of high and glittering excitement (New York Times) from the author of the legendary Hornblower series The mission of Commander George Krause of the United States Navy is to protect a convoy of thirty-seven merch...ant ships making their way across the icy North Atlantic from America to England. There, they will deliver desperately needed supplies, but only if they can make it through the wolfpack of German submarines that awaits and outnumbers them in the perilous seas. For forty eight hours, Krause will play a desperate cat and mouse game against the submarines, combating exhaustion, hunger, and thirst to protect fifty million dollars' worth of cargo and the lives of three thousand men. Originally published as The Good Shepherd and acclaimed as one of the best novels of the year upon publication in 1955, this novel is a riveting classic of WWII and naval warfare from one of the 20th century's masters of sea stories.

              The powerful story of how Greta Thunberg and her family tackled their own crisis by taking on an even bigger one: the fate of our planet When Greta Thunberg was eleven, her parents Svante and Malena, and her little sister Beata, were facing a crisis in their own home. Greta had s...topped eating and doctors were deeply concerned about her health. Her mother and father reconfigured their lives to care for her, while Greta and Beata struggled to cope. In the midst of this, Greta's desperate parents came to realize that there was another more pressing source of her distress: her imperiled future on a rapidly heating planet. Steered by Greta's determination to understand the truth and generate change, the family began to see the deep connections between their own suffering and the planet's. They discovered that their struggles at home could be healed by taking global action. And Greta, seeing that there were no gray areas when it comes to the survival of the planet, decided to go on strike from school, igniting a worldwide rebellion. Our House Is On Fire, co-written by a remarkable family of change-makers, is the story of how an unknown young girl in Sweden, with her family at her side, became the leader of a global movement.
