Moi, Malala, je lutte pour l'éducation et je résiste aux talibans by Malala Yousafzai,Christina Lamb Summary

Je viens d’un pays qui est né à minuit. Quand j’ai failli mourir, il était juste midi passé. Lorsque les talibans ont pris le contrôle de la vallée du Swat, au Pakistan, une toute jeune fille a élevé la voix. Refusant l’ignorance à laquelle la condamnait le fanatisme, Malala Yousafzai résolut de se battrre pour continuer d’aller à l’école. Son courage faillit lui coûter la vie. Le 9 octobre 2012, alors qu’elle n’avait que quinze ans, elle fut grièvement blessée par un taliban dans un car scolaire. Cet attentat censé la faire taire n’a que renforcé sa conviction dans son combat, entamé dans sa vallée natale pour la conduire jusque dans l’enceinte des Nations unies. À seize ans à peine, Malala Yousafzai est la nouvelle incarnation mondiale de la protestation pacifique et la plus jeune candidate de l’histoire au prix Nobel de la paix. Moi, Malala est le récit bouleversant d’une famille exilée à cause du terrorisme ; d’un père qui envers et contre tout a fondé des écoles ; de parents courageux qui, dans une société où les garçons sont rois, ont manifesté un amour immense à leur fille et l’ont encouragée à s’instruire, à écrire, à dénoncer l’insoutenable et à exiger, pour toutes et tous, l’accès au savoir. Elle a reçu le PRIX NOBEL DE LA PAIX le 10 octobre 2014

Blood Runs Cold on the Black Side of the Mountain by Corinne F. Gerwe Summary

Professional bear hunter and woodsman Bobby Burris was raised to hunt and poach on the famous Biltmore Estate lands and forest located adjacent to his family's homestead near Asheville, North Carolina. He was ruled by a tyrannical father who taught him to ignore the law and engaged him in an array of illegal activities from an early age, at which time he witnessed a notorious still-unsolved crime and murder. He was forced to participate in other crimes and retaliations during his adolescence under his father's direction. Rebelling against him, Bobby became a young renegade and formed his own small criminal organization in Asheville that extended beyond the region with links to the Italian and Mexican mafias and drug trafficking routes from Los Angeles to Philadelphia. His life from childhood into adulthood, under a Machiavellian authority, eventually led to his arrest and incarceration in a Federal prison where he by mere chance became a bodyguard for a mob boss of a major New York crime family. His road to perdition was interrupted by a vision that transformed him in the midst of this setting and began within him a process of rebelling once more against a life of crime that he'd been forced into since childhood. The story takes place against a backdrop of mountain wilderness and people with a long history of isolation, independence, and rebellion against authority. From a family of moonshine bootleggers, a legacy of crime developed from father to son that began with illegal poaching on the vast acreage of the magnificent Biltmore Estate and its forestlands, hunting parties with politically connected cronies from Asheville's "old boy"network, a series of hidden crimes, cruelties, and cover-ups that led to the monstrous formation of a young man with the brutalized heart of a stone cold killer. This story inflects the true crime genre with a psychological perspective, revealing unsolved mysteries, secret societies, bold adventure set within regional history, and family drama with a focus on the father/son relationship involving murder, sin and redemption. Bobby's journey from the black side of the mountain through a wilderness of transforming enlightenment is an exciting, intriguing, and inspiring story of physical and psychological survival. The book glows with a loving appreciation for the good that lies deep within some of the most hardened hearts, just as the setting, deep in the Appalachian Mountains, is shown bursting with images of spectacular beauty and the rich bounty of nature even while danger may lurk at every turn.

Mountains of the Mind by Robert Macfarlane Summary

The basis for the new documentary film, Mountain: A Breathtaking Voyage into the Extreme. Combining accounts of legendary mountain ascents with vivid descriptions of his own forays into wild, high landscapes, Robert McFarlane reveals how the mystery of the world’s highest places has came to grip the Western imagination—and perennially draws legions of adventurers up the most perilous slopes. His story begins three centuries ago, when mountains were feared as the forbidding abodes of dragons and other mysterious beasts. In the mid-1700s the attentions of both science and poetry sparked a passion for mountains; Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Lord Byron extolled the sublime experiences to be had on high; and by 1924 the death on Mt Everest of an Englishman named George Mallory came to symbolize the heroic ideals of his day. Macfarlane also reflects on fear, risk, and the shattering beauty of ice and snow, the competition and contemplation of the climb, and the strange alternate reality of high altitude, magically enveloping us in the allure of mountains at every level.

The Tale of a Hunter by Harold Ash Summary

In my lifetime I have harvested over two hundred deer and many other animals and birds, and that doesn't even count the fish species from coast to coast. I want to leave something to my family to remember me by. As of now, I have five grandkids that are somewhat interested in what I do. They show interest in the shooting sports and archery and fishing. With the fishing, they all have mounted fish I did for them on their walls. I do not push any children into hunting unless they approach me or their parents. My oldest granddaughter showed interest in archery, so when she graduated grammar school, I bought her first recurve bow. Right now she shows no interest in hunting, and that's perfectly OK. My oldest grandson just joined the Boy Scouts and has shot rifles and shot compound bows and now is interested in a compound bow. Last year he asked to go turkey hunting, and I hope he enjoyed the experience. And we didn't kill anything. We already picked out the bow. My three younger grandchildren--two are eight-year-olds and one is nine-year-old--are interested in target shooting the BB gun and archery shooting. They go for hikes with me to look for shed antlers. All my grandchildren are interested in fishing and all-around activities. My journey will continue to hone their skills in archery and firearms, and hopefully, they might be interested in hunting. My journey is far from over, God willing.

Iporanga! by Kevin Apostobranco Summary

In 1969, Dr. D.M. McArtor, Deputy Director of Technology for the US Dept. of Defense went before the Senate Committee for Approbations & requested $10 million to design a virus that is ''refractory to the immunological systems . In 1970, Dr. McArtor was granted the $10 million by the US Government to invent the AIDS virus. In 2000, feeling drawn to Brazil, the author arrived in the town of Iporanga, Sao Paulo where it is common knowledge among the residents that the US Army has been conducting some kind of secret experiments in a nearby cave hidden in the jungle in 1970. Impossible events occur on a regular basis, & previous to arriving in Iporanga he was shown through a series of coincidences that with the letter 'A' in front of his name, his surname is Apostlethwaite, or Apostobranco. On his second night, Kevin used a strange sentence for the first time & told a young doctor whose days are filled with AIDS victims; "I'm a white blood cell, I go where needed." In answer to her question regarding why he was there. Shortly after seeing a school music book full of Nazi mind control experiments with sound & melody, Apostobranco is shown a cave nearby called Caverna Laboratorio. The local residents were obviously victims of some kind of mind control. There are people in the valley that can't remember when their parents died, & another who can't remember that her husband died of AIDS. All of these things were more than enough to convince the author that he was no longer just a tourist but had assumed the role of a character in a legend. Iporanga! is an expose of numerous crimes against humanity. It's the true account of the discovery of the origin of AIDS & the bizarre series of events that surround it - an account of impossible coincidences & miracles, the misery of AIDS, & the terror of being chased by an army through the jungle in Brazil.
