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

Former Posadas County Sheriff Bill Gastner, now a New Mexico Livestock Inspector, is enjoying a day on Herb Torrance's ranch - soaking in the sun as he counts a small herd of cattle and thinking about an upcoming lunch with an old friend back in town. But a light breeze stirs dust, a horse spooks, and Bill finds himself ferrying a broken cowpuncher in the back of his SUV, headed out to meet an ambulance. Moments later, Bill's day goes from bad to worse as he is summoned by undersheriff Estelle Reyes - Guzman to an investigation of an unattended death. Too impatient for Bill to finish up out at the ranch, old George Payton had decided to eat lunch on his own. A couple of bites later, he collapsed - dead of an apparent heart attack. But something isn't right. It may well have been a heart attack, Estelle agrees, but something triggered it. Before any questions can be answered, the small herd of cattle Bill had just counted is found wandering down a county highway. But there's no sign of cowpuncher Pat Gabaldon or his boss' $40,000 truck and livestock trailer. Forced into two tangled investigations, Bill faces one of the most complex cases in his 35 - year career.

64. Never Too Fast The Paul Tracy Story (Large Print 16pt) - Paul Ferriss

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

The true story of the most dangerous race car driver on the circuit ... Paul Tracy was just a youngster when he discovered fast cars. Growing up in West Hill, Ontario, Paul dreamt of his hero Gilles Villeneuve, and when his father left him at the local go - kart track with a full tank of gas each morning, he retrieved Paul - and the empty tank - at night.
Tracy rose quickly through racing's minor leagues, setting and breaking records as he went. At 17 he was racing cars with twice the horsepower of the family cars his friends were just learning to drive. Veteran team managers and drivers knew they were seeing someone special on the track: a quiet kid with the looks of a boy scout and the desire of a champion. Soon Tracy dominated kart racing, won at Can - Am racing, and ruled Indy Lights. He then stormed into the Championship Auto Racing Team circuit, racing wheel to wheel with Emerson Fittipaldi and Mario Andretti. In those early races, even driving an underpowered car, Tracy proved he could run with the big boys.
But Paul Tracy's success has come with its share of hardships. His aggressive driving style on the cart circuit has made almost as many enemies as fans. He's been criticized, penalized, and vilified both on and off the track. Nevertheless, two things remain consistent - his desire to drive fast, and his desire to win.
When you live in a world of speed and danger, a world where success is measured in tenths of seconds and inches can separate winners from losers, one thing is certain: you can never be too fast.

65. Eureka The Unfinished Revolution (Large Print 16pt) - Peter Fitzsimons

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

Eureka Stockade - The Unfinished Revolution
In 1854, Victorian miners fought a deadly battle under the flag of the Southern Cross at the Eureka Stockade.

Henry Lawson wrote poems about it, its symbolic flag is still raised, and even the nineteenth - century visitor Mark Twain called it: ''a strike for liberty''.
Was this rebellion a fledgling nation's first attempt to assert its independence under colonial rule? Or was it merely rabble - rousing by unruly miners determined not to pay their taxes.
This edition is in two volumes. The second volume ISBN is 9781459651050.

69. The Foundation Stones Let us go on to maturity ... Hebrews 6:1 - F. David Fawcett

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £14.98  - Click book title for availability and further details

Paul introduces the “foundation stones” of the Christian faith with the exhortation found in Hebrews 5:11 through 6:2. We can conclude that maturity in our walk with Christ does not necessarily come with time. The first and most important step is ensuring a solid foundation in Jesus Christ. Just as with the Hebrews whom Paul addressed, we can remain as spiritual babies or go on to maturity. Maturity in Christ comes only through the understanding of God’s Word and the practical experience of it working together.

Although this book is based on only two Scripture verses, Hebrews 6:1 and 2, it includes Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. If you press in to complete this Bible study, then I will guarantee that you will be able to take every message or sermon or book you receive and see where it fits, or doesn’t fit, into these six (6) foundational stones of the Christian faith. 

Great for classroom study.

73. INICIOS DEL INDEPENDENTISMO EN CUBA LAS CONSPIRACIONES DE 1809 Y 1810 - José Ramón Fernández Álvarez

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £22.95  - Click book title for availability and further details

José R. "Pepe" Fernández was born in San Nicolás de Bari, Cuba, and lives in exile since 1962. His love of reading and historical research resulted in the publication of Las damas de La Habana y sus joyas. Un mito persistente en la historia de Cuba (The Ladies of Havana and their jewels. A persistent myth in the history of Cuba) in 2015. Presently, he continues to search for protagonists and forgotten or unknown facts of Cuba's wars towards independence.

The years between 1808 and 1812, which conceived the great emancipations in the Spanish colonies of Tierra Firme, also witnessed the growing tensions and incipient independence aspirations in the island of Cuba. Neglected for a long time in Cuban historiography, this formative stage in the country’s history has recently received more attention and recognition as the bicentennials of the most notable events approached: the frustrated Junta de La Habana, the expulsion of the French, the riots of blacks, conspiracies of whites, interracial and blacks, and the first constitution project. This work limits itself to trying to clarify aspects of the conspiracies of 1809 and 1810, which suffered frequent distortions due to the varied readings of the scarce documentation, and to present the information available in the light of an interpretation that allows reordering the chronology of the facts and reevaluate the performance of the protagonists.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £15.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

Le linee sincroniche sono le strade della vita, un reticolo di percorsi energetici che si diramano sul pianeta Terra e che uniscono fra loro tutti i pianeti in cui esiste la vita. Sono flussi di energia in grado di catalizzare le grandi forze presenti nel cosmo. Si tratta di mezzi di comunicazione speciali che diventano amplificatori di emozioni; su di esse scorrono le informazioni che raggiungono tutti gli esseri viventi, al di là dei differenti linguaggi, poiché agiscono secondo il principio di rispondenza: sincronicità è il termine moderno della credenza archetipica nella fondamentale unità di tutte le cose, che trascende la causalità meccanica. Le linee sincroniche attraversano il pianeta disegnando “strade” che uniscono fra loro punti anche molto distanti; questo libro le descrive, illustrandone lo scorrimento e le funzioni con l’ausilio di mappe e disegni. Dal loro studio approfondito è possibile trarre un numero molto grande di informazioni, che consentono un nuovo modo di interpretare gli eventi storici.

Questo libro magico, attinto dalla Grande Biblioteca di Atlantide, tratteggia i contorni di una civiltà ideale punto di arrivo di ogni esperienza umana, emersa dalle acque del passato o intravista nelle sfere del futuro.

In città di cristallo, collegate le une con le altre, vive un'umanità evoluta, il cui pensiero, inteso come prodotto alchemico che distilla una profonda capacità creativa, ha costruito un modo di vivere incentrato sull'equilibrio e l'armonia. Lo studio e la ricerca della conoscenza sono nobili occupazioni e la pace e la fiducia i semi che permettono la nascita di nuove idee, musica e poesia. La vita stessa è un'arte, dominata da uno spirito capace di staccarsi dalla fisicità e di viaggiare nel cielo e verso altri mondi, trasformando il mondo in un giardino vario e perfetto, in cui gli uomini sanno ridere con se stessi e con Dio.

Come se una nuova corrente del tempo, che si è ormai lasciata alle spalle un'epoca di dolore e sangue, potesse restituirci la possibilità di vivere in un mondo migliore, di cui essere i sognatori e i custodi designati.

80. AMSCUSAT - english - Oberto Airaudi Falco Tarassaco

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £8.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

Amscusat is a teenager like others, who lives in family, goes to school, meets with friends, has desire and fear of growing up. He’s travelling on the gravicycle, cycling through two suspended meters above the ground; to reach faraway places he uses the de-composers of atoms called "whisk" or gravitational bubbles, and the planet on which they live has two Suns and two Moons. And when he is a little rough, because the next day he should support the challenging aptitude test in " spheres of time," before falling asleep he turns on the dream-tape of an alien race.

So, between a visit to a large spaceship docked in orbit before flying out to the front, and the reading of the sports news on the video magazine containing sheets of gravifootball, he is asking about his future: will he become a secret agent on a mission against the enemy of the allied creatures or a time-traveller on some worlds to be freed? Shaper of new substances or psychic help in analysis of alien materials?

Following Amscusat on his adventures, we are going into a world where everything we normally consider science fiction becomes everyday life and dissatisfaction and emotional turmoils of this teenager seem like an attempt to orient himself and find his own place in a complex reality with a lot of stimulations. Each page reveals details of an amazing life that fascinates and amuses, and invites us to never put edges to our imagination. The future is always around to be created.

Ancient history of humankind or science-fiction? Amscusat is a teenager who, according to the custom of the space-time he lives in, shares his studies, friendships and adventures with a wide variety of humans, animals and plants. Despite the advanced technology that characterizes his time, his adventures are framed in a war scenario, a ruthless, ongoing conflict underway since time immemorial. The Enemy, the principle opposing the evolution of any intelligent species, relentlessly pursues the destruction of any planets which get in its way. Is this the story of an indecipherable future or the journal of a forgotten past?
