1. My Forever Heartache - Four Years of Discovery with the Kalahari Bushmen - Bernard Horton
Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £13.99 - Click book title for availability and further details
In 1994, entrepreneur and award-winning businessman Bernard Horton decided to give up the rat-race and all the trappings of wealth and security in order to follow his heart, and live amongst the Bushman people of Botswana's Western Kalahari. He bought and converted an ex-military Land Rover 101" Forward Control (nicknamed I a bo pe - let it roar - by the Bushmen from the distinctive sound of the V8 engine), and with a friend, Dr. Murdoch Laing set about driving all the way up from Durban to Maun, Botswana - still a dusty frontier town in those days. The doctor returned to England but Bernard had found his calling and stayed. My Forever Heartache is the fascinating story of Bernard's four-year adventure which saw him become one with these gentle and inspirational people who still live in harmony with mother nature as they have done for thousands of years. As the title suggests it is also a study of how the Bushmen struggle to adapt and survive in a modern world that doesn't share their same core values, perhaps ultimately to the detriment of all of us. Bernard Horton was born in Wales, and spent many happy years in Scotland before making his home in Maun, Botswana, where he still lives with his daughter Themma. He is the founder of the Horton Crossbow empire and owner of Gidichaa Camp, a Bushman safari lodge in northern Botswana. www.gidichaa.com He is the author of The Horton Story, also published by Black Crake Books. www.blackcrakeboooks.com

3. Jesus Is No Joke A True Story Of An Unlikely Witness Who Saw Jesus - Heidi Hollis
Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £16.75 - Click book title for availability and further details
Once a skeptic of "Holy Encounters," Heidi Hollis shares her true story of four unexpected journeys with Jesus, which led her deep into the reality of His Presence among us today. Hollis shares how Jesus and His angels revealed glimpses of Heaven and Hell, even healing her physically of an incurable disease, leaving her with the utmost passion to share His inspiration with the world!
As humanly as possible and lacking a religious tongue, Hollis pours out her raw emotions with all of the errors, yet new understandings, which came with meeting someone she highly misunderstood when she heard claims of Jesus appearing to people around the world today.
Hollis once thought that Jesus had traversed these lands long ago, never to be seen or heard from again-now, in admitting her error, she encourages others to hold their "J" for Jesus up in the air for all to see: Jesus Is No Joke!
"A raw outpouring of pure emotion from someone who is hardly a member of the clergy. She explains what she saw and pours out real, true emotion - with little political motivation that one so often hears from the ordained clergy. An inspiring and encouraging tale for spiritual people, "Jesus is No Joke: A True Story of an Unlikely Witness Who Saw Jesus" is a must for community library spirituality and Christian studies collections." James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief ~Midwest Book Review
"Heidi's writing style simply drew me in-it's natural, refreshingly "real," and enthusiastic. Best of all, she has something to say. Her encounters with Jesus were riveting and inspiring and they conveyed, above all, the feeling of Jesus' reality. Heidi writes from her heart, her soul, and after reading this book, I felt that I knew her, appreciated her, and admired her courage. A must-read for those who seek the Light." Robert Becker/Editor, Pure Inspiration Magazine
About the Author: Heidi Hollis has been heard by millions as an internationally known speaker on intriguing phenomena, from angels to aliens. She is also the author of Picture Prayers, The Secret War and is an occupational therapist, advice columnist and radio talk show host.

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £30.00 - Click book title for availability and further details
The long-awaited memoir from John Fogerty, the legendary singer-songwriter and creative force behind Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Creedence Clearwater Revival is one of the most important and beloved bands in the history of rock, and John Fogerty wrote, sang, and produced their instantly recognizable classics: "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," "Born on the Bayou," and more. Now he reveals how he brought CCR to number one in the world, eclipsing even the Beatles in 1969. By the next year, though, Creedence was falling apart; their amazing, enduring success exploded and faded in just a few short years.
FORTUNATE SON takes readers from Fogerty's Northern California roots, through Creedence's success and the retreat from music and public life, to his hard-won revival as a solo artist who finally found love.
