"This deeply personal book is also an important historical record. Written from the heart and covering a period of time working on Christmas Island with asylum seekers until her return to Australia with an urgency to bear witness, Pettitt-Schipp's steady eye is levelled at a facade of Australian inclusivity and openness "this land's edge /has always been an invitation/a white-toothed smile/ to walk on". To those denied entry, those white teeth become menace, exclusion, shark, crocodile. In a book filled with heart-breakingly tender portraits, borders and bodies, sanctions and sanctuary are held close to each other in ways which articulate the space but also, the common ground between "us"."--Amanda Joy **"These beautiful Christmas Island poems capture both the despair of asylum seekers imprisoned by rock and sea and their ancient will to continue."--Gillian Triggs (Series: UWAP Poetry) [Subject: Poetry]

Sky Blue reads like this morning's news. Alexander M. Grace's latest novel is set in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan, a million square in which a bitter civil war rages between native Muslims and Russian settlers. A multinational force of United Nations troops has been sent to keep the peace, but there is no peace to keep. And unknown to the men with the skyblue berets, four Russian mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles have gone missing amid the chaos. Now U.S. Army brigadier general Julian Chandler, a scarred veteran of Somalia, has been thrust into his no-win situation. The Kazakhs want revenge for a brutal "ethnic cleansing" ordered by the erratic leader of the Russian minority, which Chandler has been ordered to protect. The only legitimate authority left in a country dissolving rapidly into total anarchy, Chandler must battle the militias of both factions, UN bureaucrat with a separate agenda, and his own haunting memories of humiliation and death in Africa. He will be forced to make a fateful decision, one for which he has prepared his entire life.

Join Natalie and her fourth-grade class as they learn all about Seattle! Lakes, mountains, and forests surround this Emerald City. Find out how Seattle began as a lumberjack town, the dream of Arthur Denny, an enterprising businessperson who led the first group of non-Native settlers to Seattle. Destroyed by a fire, Seattle was reborn to serve customers worldwide—first as a port for Klondike prospectors, then as a builder of World War II warbirds, and today as world headquarters for Microsoft and Starbucks. Not just for coffee and raincoats, Seattle prides itself on a thriving arts community, as seen in the Experience Music Project and Olympic Sculpture Gardens. Travel with Natalie’s class as they spend a week in Seattle. They’ll visit classic destinations, like Pike Place Market and the Space Needle, and experience Seattle’s fun and funky neighborhoods. It’s a trip you won’t forget!

For every bomber pilot in the Korean War, there were enlisted aircrewmen maintaining the aircraft and its equipment. One of those men was Aviation Electronics Technician Second Class Jack Sauter. AT2 Sauter was assigned to the USS Lake Champlain, part of Task Force 77. As an aircrewman, Sauter flew 21 early warning and anti-submarine (ASW) missions from the backseat of a Douglas Skyraider. When not flying, he maintained the equipment that protected his plane and its crew. This is an enlisted man's story of service in the Korean air war. There was the excitement of serving in a combat zone, but there was also the boredom and tedium with which to contend.
