It was like a scene out of a thriller: one morning in April 2012, China’s most famous political activist—a blind, self-taught lawyer—climbed over the wall of his heavily guarded home and escaped. For days, his whereabouts remained unknown; after he turned up at the American embassy in Beijing, a furious round of high-level negotiations finally led to his release and a new life in the United States. Chen Guangcheng is a unique figure on the world stage, but his story is even more remarkable than we knew. The son of a poor farmer in rural China, blinded by illness when he was an infant, Chen was fortunate to survive a difficult childhood. But despite his disability, he was determined to educate himself and fight for the rights of his country’s poor, especially a legion of women who had endured forced sterilizations under the hated 'one child' policy. Repeatedly harassed, beaten, and imprisoned by Chinese authorities, Chen was ultimately placed under house arrest. After a year of fruitless protest and increasing danger, he evaded his captors and fled to freedom. Both a riveting memoir and a revealing portrait of modern China, this passionate book tells the story of a man who has never accepted limits and always believed in the power of the human spirit to overcome any obstacle.

What happens when you never stop questioning what you believe? They say God works in mysterious ways. John Domenico should know. In his 50 plus years, he's embarked on a seeker's journey that has taken him from steadfast Catholicism to born-again Christianity to a unique kind of inclusive spirituality. Blind Spots: The Memoirs of a Baby Boomer on the Rocky Road towards Spiritual Awakening collects his insightful and often humorous thoughts, reflections and critiques on all of them. The result is a deliciously candid and frank book that will appeal to anyone who's ever struggled to understand his or her faith. From early on, it's clear Domenico marched to his own drummer. As a child, he learns to question his family's Catholic faith - and finds plenty of trouble from the nuns and priests in Catholic school. Subsequent to his experimentation in the 1960's and 70's, Domenico settles down and, after initial resistance, discovers Pentecostalism. But eventually he finds cracks in his latest belief system, and he sets out for what will be the most spiritually fulfilling quest of all. Interspersed are compelling asides on his personal life, as well as the politics, major events, personalities and trends that have shaped the last half-century. Throughout it all, Domenico's sensitivity and keen wit masterfully transform an ordinarily timeworn subject, that under his care, is crafted into a thought-provoking, rollicking ride that might just get you questioning your own deeply held beliefs... Reader reviews: "It made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me think so much I don't know what I believe anymore." "I loved it... I think it should be required reading for everyone on the planet." "Domenico tells his story with painful rawness. His courage is rivaled only by his masterful storytelling, revealing much of who we all are in this provocative memoir."

Sight Unseen reveals the cultural and biological realities of race, gender, and sexual orientation from the perspective of the blind. Through ten case studies and dozens of interviews, Ellyn Kaschak taps directly into the phenomenology of race, gender, and sexual orientation among blind individuals, along with the everyday epistemology of vision. Kaschak's work reveals not only how the blind create systems of meaning out of cultural norms but also how cultural norms inform our conscious and unconscious interactions with others regardless of our physical ability to see.

Growing up in Mineral Wells, Texas, during the 1950s and 60s was anything but idyllic for Walter Ashby. Due to a misdiagnosis and medical error, his sister Janie went from being a lively young girl to a shell of a person who required their parents' attention 24 hours a day, every day. To add insult to injury, his parents received another blow: before Walter was six years old, he lost 98 percent of his vision, leaving him legally blind. Speaking as though he was not present, doctors told Walter's parents not to expect much: he wouldn't graduate from high school, let alone attend college. He would never drive, and probably wouldn't do anything meaningful with his life. While the diagnosis stung, instead of looking at his disability as an impairment, Walter saw it as a challenge. He didn't want to be a burden to his parents--instead Walter chose to disregard his naysayers and prove how wrong they were. By relying on faith--along with his own initiative and a handful of caring adults including his father--not only did he graduate from high school and college, Walter earned two graduate degrees, married the girl of his dreams, became a father, and enjoyed a long and successful career helping others. Walter proved the cynics wrong. Impaired, But Empowered is a story of the human spirit and how that spirit has been passed to future generations--both Ashby's daughters and one grandson inherited the same gene and are also sight-impaired. Most of all, Impaired, But Empowered is the story about why you should never stop believing in yourself or your faith.

The stories in this book are true. They will give you a glimpse into the lives of little children who are now grown men and women. However, before you read the stories, there is a brief history of the orphanage that I believe you will find interesting. No longer is the orphanage downtown Charlotte but moved outside the city limits to the orphanage farm on St. Peter’s Lane, Matthews, North Carolina. This is where our lake was and where the earlier children used to have so much enjoyment. Most of them in these stories mention the farm and the lake. These small children would have had little chance to grow up into strong men and women who could go out into the world and compete with the best of men had it not been for people who cared. In the cases of the people in these stories, it was Thompson Orphanage in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Episcopal Church, and others that gave willingly toward the support of the orphanage. You will get a glimpse into the lives of individuals from the day they went to Thompson Orphanage until this day. Also, another purpose of this book is help the public understand orphanages. So many people feel sorry for children in orphanages. These are blessed children because they were given the chance in life that so many others needed but were not as fortunate. The ones to feel sorry for are those whose families can’t afford to care for their children and those children who are abused, neglected, and have no one to help them escape their situation.
