Tours in Europe and America became ever more grandiose and elaborate—and then along came punk. However, Gentle Giant’s music has endured over time and new generations are as entranced by their intricate sound as were audiences of thirty years ago.

These are the firsthand accounts of sisters Helen and Barbara Shores growing up with their father, Arthur Shores, a prominent Civil Rights attorney, during the 60s in the Jim Crow south Birmingham district—a frequent target of the Ku Klux Klan. Between 1948 and 1963, some 50 unsolved Klan bombings happened in Smithfield where the Shores family lived, earning their neighborhood the nickname “Dynamite Hill.” Due to his work, Shores’ daughter, Barbara, barely survived a kidnapping attempt. Twice, in 1963, Klan members bombed their home, sending Theodora to the hospital with a brain concussion and killing Tasso, the family’s cocker spaniel. The family narrowly escaped a third bombing attempt on their home in the spring of 1965. The Gentle Giant of Dynamite Hill is an incredible story of a family’s unfair suffering, but also of the Shores’ overcoming. This family’s sacrificial commitment, courage, determination, and triumph inspire us today through this story and the selfless service, work, and lives of Helen Shores Lee and Barbara Sylvia Shores.

The following story that I’m going to share is true. It illuminates the impossible that can become possible when there is: • A loving and accepting family • Mother’s and Grandmother’s prayers • Strong presence of the Judeo Christian work ethic • Attitudes of Victory vs. Victimhood This is a story of love and the tragedy of others that made for this Developmentally Disabled couple’s independence. You’ll observe contrasting family attitudes and the unbelievable circumstances in others’ lives that are beyond comprehension. We’ll walk through some lives to celebrate their victories through love and determination. You’ll cheer the contentment, happiness, and love of this special couple. But you’ll also be challenged as we see our own evaluations and prejudging of things and people that are different. This book makes all of us look at ourselves and question our own tolerance levels in many areas of life. By the end of this story, most of you living in or visiting Steubenville, Ohio will think a little differently and smile as you see David (7’ tall) and Ruthy (5’ tall) sauntering down the sidewalk, holding hands as always. You’ll be inspired by secrets of triumph over odds and you’ll feel the small victories and blessings that we should celebrate every day. My hope is that your experience in reading this book will be as enjoyable as the laughs and tears I’ve experienced as I interviewed and met the remarkable characters that you’re about to meet in this true saga. We may even have to ask, “Do we love enough? Do we have what it takes to make lemonade out of our lemons?”

Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1The Gentle Giant Chapter 2 An Amazing Horse Chapter 3 A Few Suffolk Punch Facts Conclusion Nature's Great Wonders Author Bio Introduction “Majestic. Calm temperament. Hard worker. Beautiful. Energetic. Willing to serve.” *** The Suffolk Punch is an amazing horse with kind eyes and a willing spirit. However, unlike other horses, it is not well known. Have you ever heard of the Suffolk Punch before? Maybe not! This beautiful horse goes by many names like Suffolk Horse and Suffolk Sorrel. As a draft horse, they are tall, strong, and have a beautiful Chestnut coat. But the spelling of the color is different than you might think. Instead of Chestnut, it is spelled CHESNUT with a missing letter T. So, the color is Chesnut and not chestnut! As mentioned, the Suffolk Punch is a draft horse. This is a horse that “draws” or “hauls” something. It is also called a work horse or heavy horse, because it works hard and pulls heavy loads. However, these types of horses are strong, docile, easy to work with and very patient. The more recent history of the Suffolk Punch goes back many years to World War I. During those years, this horse became a work horse on big farms. One reason why farmers liked this horse so much was because of its personality. Their calm and patient nature was exactly what farmers needed to help them work better. Farmers also loved this horse because they are hard workers!

Orcas -- commonly known as killer whales -- are more feared than understood. Accompany Hiroya Minakuchi in his five-year study into the lives of these marine mammals in their natural habitat in the Pacific Northwest. Minakuchi's brilliant cinematography brings killer whales up close as never before and challenges popular misconceptions. With the aid of specially developed underwater cameras, he films spectacular scenes, including a dramatic personal encounter with several dolphins who come within a few feet of his lens. His camera captures a fascinating birth at sea, as well as Orcas above the water breaching and "spy hopping," and a rarely filmed "rubbing ritual." Great for classroom or personal use.

Danton: Gentle Giant of Terror In this new biography, David Lawday, author of the acclaimed Napoleon's Master, a life of Talleyrand, turns his focus to the life of Georges-Jacques Danton, tragic hero incarnate. A beefy six-foot bull of a man, with a rude farmyard face to match, Danton was destined to bring a violent end to an absolute monarchy that had ruled for a thousand years.But it was not his alarming physique that placed him at the head of the Revolution.His weapon of revolt was his voice - a perpetual roll of thunder that spurred men to action without his quite knowing where he intended to drive them.To hear Danton was to hear the heartbeat of revolution.Together with the puritanical Robespierre - his rival to death and in most every way his opposite - Danton brought about something rare in history:a change in the human social order.The reckless ride from monarchy to republic was a mass social revolution that upended the most populous country in Europe - an upheaval so uniquely radical in spirit that formed the root - if not quite of that liberty and equality its makers dreamed of - at least of the liberal, democratic society in which a good part of the world is fairly content to live today.What manner of man makes such stupendous things happen? With prose that is immediate and engaging, Lawday examines the personalities and the associations that inspired and fuelled the Revolution.The power of Danton's oratory, and his charismatic appeal, led him to the centre of power at the height of a period of turbulent change.But he was to become a victim of Revolution himself, facing the guillotine - defiant to the end - at the age of thirty-four.
