2. Is That Even a Country, Sir! Journeys in Northeast India by Train, Bus and Tractor - Anil YadavAnurag Basnet

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £12.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

†‘The story of India’s most neglected region told by the narrative voice of a poor, petulant reporter… Stripped of the exotic, the Northeast in [this book] appears bare, burnt and betrayed…’

—Scroll.in

When violence broke out before elections in Assam in 2000, in which Hindi-speakers from North India were massacred, two out-of-work journalists, Anil Yadav and Anhes Shashwat, decided to go there, braving violence and uncertainty, with the hope that their despatches would make them famous. At that time, they had very little knowledge about Northeast India and no strategy for their trip; they had few contacts, and very little money.

On 29 November 2000, the pair embarked on what became an epic journey in which they crisscrossed Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura and Manipur, staying in rundown hotels and guesthouses, and in the homes of friends and strangers. They travelled by local buses through ambushes, they were forced to walk halfway down the highway from Shillong to Guwahati and, on one memorable occasion on the road to Sibsagar, Anil shared a tractor with a herd of goats.

They encountered, among others, a boatman on the Brahmaputra who clearly explained to them the politics behind the massacres of Hindi-speakers; former members of the ULFA who told them why they had surrendered; a former general of Zapu Phizo’s separatist army in Kohima who described to them his gruelling march through virgin forest to China; a murderous raid in Shillong which gave them a glimpse of the insider-versus-outsider equation in Meghalaya; a Manipuri sculptor with whom Anil travelled to Tripura, and who had to be rescued from the Army; and a barber who told them why an elephant was butchered by a mob in Dimapur.

Written with rare power and candour,†Is That Even a Country, Sir!†weaves history, politics, myth and gritty ground-zero reportage into an unprecedented and unforgettable portrait of Northeast India.

7. The Maybelline Story ...and the Spirited Family Dynasty Behind It (Large Print 16pt) - Bettie PH.D. Youngs, Sharrie Williams

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In 1915, when a kitchen stove fire singed his sister Mabel's lashes and brows, Tom Lyle Williams watched in fascination as she performed a ''secret of the harem'' - mixing petroleum jelly with coal dust and ash from a burnt cork and apply it to her lashes and brows. Mabel's simple beauty trick ignited Tom Lyle's imagination and he started what would become a billion - dollar business, one that remains a viable American icon after nearly a century. He name it Maybeline in her honor.

Throuhout the 20th century, the Maybeline Company inflated, collapsed, endured, and thrived in tandem witht he nation's upheavals - as did the family that nurtured it. Setting up shop first in Chicago, Williams later, to avoid unwanted scrutiny of his private life, cloistered himself behind the gates of his Rudolph Valentino Villa and ran his empire from a distance. Now after nearly a century of silence, this true story celebrates the life of an American entrepreneur, man whose vision rocketed him to success along with the woman held in his orbit, Evelyn Boecher - who became his lifelong fascintion and muse.

Captivated by her ''roaring charisma,'' he affectionately called her the ''real Miss Maybelline'' and based many of his advertising campaigns on the woman she represented: commandingly beautiful, hard - boiled and daring. Evelyn masterminded a life of vanity, but would fall prey to fortune hunters and a mysterious murder that even today remains unsolved. A fascinating and inspiring story of ambition, luck, secrecy - and surprisingly, above all, love and forgiveness, a tale both epic and intimate, alive with the clash, the hustle, the music, and dance of American enterprise.

8. Moral Capitalism Reconciling Private Interest with the Public Good (Large Print 16pt) - Stephen Young

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Shows how to ensure that capitalism promotes progress and equality rather than enriching the few at the expense of many.
Based on principles developed by the Caux Round Table, an international network of senior business executives from such companies as 3M, Canon, NEC, Bankers Trust, Shell, Prudential, and dozens of other companies.
Provides practical guidelines for corporate social responsibility through the Caux Round Table's Seven General Principles for Business.
The world is drifting without a clear plan for its economic development. Communism is dead, but in the wake of Enron and similar scandals, many see capitalism as amoral and too easily abused. A blueprint for progress is needed and Moral Capitalism provides one.
Moral Capitalism is based on principles developed by the Caux Round Table, an extraordinary international network of top business executives who believe that business can-and must-weigh both profit and principle. Caux Round Table's global chair, Stephen Young, argues that the ethical standards inherent in capitalism have been compromised by cultural values inimical to capitalism's essentially egalitarian, rational spirit, and distorted by the short-sighted dog-eat-dog doctrines of social Darwinism into what he calls brute capitalism. He demonstrates how the Caux Round Table's Seven General Principles for Business can serve as a blueprint for a new moral capitalism, and explores in detail how, if guided by these principles, capitalism is really the only system with the potential to reduce global poverty and tyranny and address the needs and aspirations of individuals, societies, and nations.

11. Bond of Brothers Connecting with Other Men Beyond Work, Weather, and Sports (Large Print 16pt) - Wes Yoder

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £20.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The perfect conversation for men with little to say can be summed up in eight words: ''Can you believe the weather at that game?'' Author Wes Yoder's words are humorous. Yet, beyond the sports and weather chatter and silence that characterize many male conversations, there is brokenness. Emptiness. Shame. That's not funny. For Yoder, addressing the problem is not about planting the flag for one's manhood by joining a mass movement for men, nor is it necessary for men to sire a herd or shoot a moose to authenticate their manhood.Yoder calls disappointed, disenchanted, and lonely men to authenticity. To rediscover joy. To find satisfaction. In Bond of Brothers, men will discover: Why your career and performance at work are not your identity How to defeat the fears that come to a man in the Tough Years What to do when you are too worried to forgive or too power-hungry to smile Why spiritual friendships are the central, life-giving core of all healthy relationships among men. Being present to comfort, to love, to listen, to take a step toward Jesus together in our brokenness that is the essence of friendship, Yoder writes. When we invite Jesus into our shared brokenness, he can do the work of remaking what is left of the mess we have made of ourselves. Begin a journey toward authenticity and your true identity here.

15. Carrying Fire A Memoir by Evelyn B. Yohner - Evelyn B. YohnerRuth De Jong

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The era of narratives in which missionaries followed God’s calling to remotest lands are necessarily dwindling away as a new generation of missionaries stands on the shoulders of these pioneers, and technology redefines how missionary endeavor is accomplished. These stories are like rare pearls, collected from a way of “doing” missions no longer done, when intrepid men and women sacrificed everything to obey God’s voice. Such is the story of Art and Evy Yohner.

Evy shares the wonder, joy, and heartaches of their journey as they followed God’s call to “carry their fire,” their passion for God and the lost, to Suriname, South America, to find and take the Gospel to the lost tribe of Akuriyos, and ultimately to an international ministry of teaching, encouragement, and support to other missionaries. Evy details the struggles and humor of adapting to life in the jungle, a new culture, and raising their young daughter, while making expeditions deep into the jungle in search of the Akuriyos. Through Art’s gift of photography, they capture their love for the people God had called them to seek out in His name. Their experiences in the jungle serve as the “proving ground” for the ministry to which God would later call Art & Evy, carrying the fire of their passion for Him for the rest of their lives.

Evy’s narrative is a loving dedication to her dear Art, and a tribute to God’s love, power, and provision, as well as a moment in history in which humble people did humble things to the glory of God.

Evy Bio

Evy Yohner grew up in West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland, meeting her future husband, Art, when her family lived at Aberdeen Proving Ground. Receiving Christ as Savior soon after marrying, Art and Evy felt the call of God to commit their lives to serving Him: “Lord, Anything, Anytime, Anywhere, at Any Cost.” Their commitment and passion for God took them to full time service in Suriname, South America, and then to minister internationally with World Team, and eventually begin Art Yohner Missions Ministries (AYMMI).

Evy is now retired and lives in Bradenton, FL, less than a mile from her daughter, Ruthi, and her family, and is a great-grandmother of four. She originally began writing her story for her grandchildren, but her many friends encouraged her to collect and share her adventures. She maintains a ministry of encouragement and counsel, and continues to write and share her insights gleaned from a lifetime of commitment to God.
