“Where do you come from?”Among the people who have achieved eminence on the contemporary scene, in the arts, in the professions, in public service, in education, an unexpectedly large number are likely to answer with pride, “From Winnipeg, the North End.” This book began as an inquiry into the forces that led to so rich a harvest of talent from one small section of an ordinary city on the edge of the Canadian prairie. In a series of eighteen reminiscences by former North-Enders, it attempts to reconstruct the quality of life in that polyglot community in the years immediately before and after World War II, and from the point of view of one distinctive ethnic group, the children of its Jewish immigrants. Jews constituted only a small proportion of the North End's ethnic mix, but as a group they quickly reached a remarkable level of acculturation and achievement, setting the tone and pace for the entire enclave.Today, urban growth has exploded the district's boundaries, and new waves of immigration have altered its demography; the North End that produced these people is no more. As the men and women represented here seek to recapture a distant past, they explore one common concern: in what way were their lives shaped by the immigrant community of their parents; what still holds fast of their particular background? In the assembled reflections there are insights into the particular nature of the Jewish ethos, and perhaps also into the universal immigrant experience. A composite evocation of time and place emerges, out of the shared lives of the men and women whose voices are recorded here. With them, readers may take their own journey back into the lost world of youth.

The Best of Times is a collection of stories. Please find a cozy cushion, a comfortable pillow, or a soft rocker and read about the times of The Renau's, Harding's, of Rory, and Colton, and many other characters. The barrier island city of Galveston was in the path of a devastating storm, that few, including the Renau family, were ready to be stricken with in Storm. Walk towards the Music, Walk towards the Light finds the return of the Harding's, Wallace and Leslie, as they contemplate selling off their Garden Oaks home where they have remained decades for a new lifestyle of independent living in their senior years. Mrs. Maywall had a gigantic yard that was an exciting play land for two brothers, Rory and 'Crackle Tooth', along with neighbor kids in The Shared Sandwich. Rory travels to the state capital, and meets new friends while on the capitol grounds. Friendships among kids are often spoken to heart to heart, or from a gesture of food offerings, in Potato Chips. A youngster playing is normal in life, a rite of passage. For Rory, his playmates found out at an early age, what can happen when not watching the cars driving on the neighborhood streets, in The Kids Play Mate. Cumming was the Iowa home of grandma, and grandma wanted to go home for a visit. So finds Rory on a road trip of a thousand miles, and the growing pains he encountered in Cumming. Saved Encounter is a story of fate, a story where being at the right time and place in 1959 was apparently what was in the life plan, for Ben, in 1959. The School of the Blessed Chalice was Rory's school, and he excelled at altar serving and reading. Life was routine in every way, until one November day, in Gone. Gift, has Rory discovering Santa's secret present hiding place, for the family presents. Rory had to keep the secret stash a secret, especially when the gift was a much anticipated camera. The Sound of the Train, day in, day out. The sounds were heard. The click, the clack, the rat tat tat rattle of the tracks. Barky: Birdy the Backyard Blue Jay Meets Barky, The wind had bits and pieces of particles in it, besides rain droplets. One of these bits and pieces blowing in the wind was a little seed. This little seed is how our story begins: The story of Barky. Read about Birdy the Backyard Blue Jay's next adventure. Colton, Teen Secret Agent: Find the Parents, is the next chapter in the story of high school student turned secret agent, in search of his parents in such locations as Segovia, Madrid, Rome and more. Teen Speak, A Teacher's Story, The bell rings and classes start for four hundred students in the Church of the Cross Parish religious education on Wednesday evening. The student's stories are many. Life is not all a bed of roses for the parish youth, especially when the Sourpuss patrol is on the prowl. Pocketful of String and a Handful of Beads is a story of prayer and family, and thinking the positive over adversity. Another lesson in life's journey, for Rory.

Why did Mrs. Woodrow Wilson say to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, "You're nothing but a common thief!" while sitting next to him at a State dinner at the White House? What were President Eisenhower and Pope John XIII laughing about in a famous photograph? (unexplained until now) What is the truth behind the famous 'Miss Hofmans Affair' that once rocked the Royal Family of the Netherlands? These are only a few of the questions answered in this fast-paced tale of an adventurous May-September marriage. In 1950, a young artist, Allene Gaty, married a well established, middle-aged, very social historian/biographer, Alden Hatch. Learning to cope with life in the upper echelons while meeting such celebrated world figures as President and Mrs. Dweight D. Eisenhower, Pope John XXIII, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, Clare Booth Luce, Buckminster Fuller, Henry Cabot Lodge and 'Mrs. Admiral' Byrd among many others gave Allene a challenging life. It also gave her a peek behind the curtain of history.

Have you ever thought that God has too many important things on His mind to be concerned about you? Has the devil tried to make you think that you have to set your goals based on the opinions of others? Have you been pressured into being someone you're not, therefore watering down or forgetting your dreams? Have you ever lost a friend to a deceitful person, or made a friend from an enemy? Have you and your friend gotten into just a little bit of trouble together? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this book is for you. The boys in these stories face these issues, and they learn to rely on God's grace instead of luck. They find that true deliverance comes through believing in God and His faith in them. God's faith in them leads them to believe in themselves even when others don't. Craig's home has always been in North Alabama. During his teen and adult life he has carried a soft spot in his heart for children. He has worked with children in his church and beyond since the age of thirteen. These experiences have led to his writing of short stories for children. He loves to see children smile and enjoy life. He longs to encourage them in any way he can. He believes they are a gift, and so is life. Craig gave his life to Jesus in 1979 when he was nine years old. He graduated high school in 1988 and college in 1995. He began writing seriously in 1998. In 2000 He began a course in writing for children from the Institute of Children's Literature. He completed it in February of 2002. Craig currently has 23 short stories, all of which are compiled in this book.
