"Each of us has a "big wave"--a dream that seems to be at the edge of what's possible, that resonates deeply in our hearts, and would require all of our heart and soul to accomplish. If we're successful, we're transported far beyond who we thought we were and where we thought we would be. But to get there, we have to overcome our greatest fears and uncertainties. In order to surf Jaws at night in Maui, one of the most treacherous waves in the world, internationally renowned big wave surfer Mark Visser had to map out a plan. He knew he had to prepare for and accept the unpredictable so that he could achieve the unbelievable. And he knew his method had to be as practical as it was true to his passion. With a clear vision and a voice as bold as his personality, Visser outlines the eight steps he took to conquer his biggest challenge yet and that you can take to carve out your own path to success"--

The classic tale of a Japanese boy orphaned by a tsunami from the author of The Good Earth, the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. On a mountainside in Japan, two boys enjoy a humble life governed by age-old customs. Jiya belongs to a family of fishermen; his best friend, Kino, farms rice. But when a neighboring volcano erupts and a tidal wave swallows their village—including Jiya’s family—life as they know it is changed forever. The orphaned Jiya must learn to come to terms with his grief. Now facing a profoundly different life than the one he’d always taken for granted, he must decide on a new way forward. Written with graceful simplicity, The Big Wave won the Children’s Book Award of the Child Study Association of America when it was first released. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author’s estate.
