Spirit in the Rock by Jim Compton Pdf

The 1873 Modoc War was fierce, bloody, and unjust. This riveting narrative captures the dramatic battles, betrayals, and devastating end, delving into underlying causes and schemes to seize ancestral territory. By April 1870, immigrant demands forced the Modoc onto a crowded, distant reservation with their rivals, the Klamath. Led by a charismatic young chief called Captain Jack, they fled to their original Lost River village. The cavalry countered with a surprise attack on November 29, 1872. Survivors escaped to a natural stone citadel--nearby lava beds--and the most expensive Indian conflict in U.S. history began.

Rock Gets Religion by Mark Joseph Pdf

Rock music, once largely the domain of hedonism and debauchery of every kind, is now populated by a surprising case of upstanding and in many cases devout citizens who create all different kinds of music and oftentimes are animated by religious ideas that would have been completely alien to rock stars of yesteryear. The religious and religiously influenced are now commonplace in rock 'n' roll (Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, Katy Perry, 21 Pilots). But is that good for either rock or the faith? In Rock Gets Religion producer and author Mark Joseph explores the tensions caused when religious youth are thrown into the world of rock 'n' roll. He weaves thoughtful commentary amidst the stories of devout and not-so-devout rockers--along with a warning about the inherent dangers of sanctifying rock. Four major trends caused this big-tent takeover: (1) Dozens of rookie artists are bypassing the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) scene altogether going directly to mainstream labels; (2) established CCM artists are switching to mainstream recording companies; (3) Those artists who experience religious conversions are staying in mainstream music instead of leaving for the church circuit; and (4) the American Idol phenomenon resulted in pop stars being picked by the American people instead of music industry gatekeepers who selected the stars of yesteryear. As a result, while CCM sales of Christian music as a genre may have been in a steady decline, the religious influence on rock has never been greater. Rock Gets Religion lays out the case for people of faith to continue to make their music in the middle of popular culture, and updates the scene with dozens of success (and not so successful) stories of Christians who have done just that. "Mark Joseph has been a key voice in the transformation of American popular music," says former Van Halen singer Gary Cherone. "In this book, his final in a three-part series, he shows us how the transformation happened and outlines a vision for the future of the unlikely alliance of rock music and serious faith."

The Capture of Attu: A World War II Battle as Told by the Men Who Fought There by Sewell T. Tyng,Nelson L. Drummond,Robert J. Mitchell Pdf

In May 1943 US forces clashed with Japanese invaders in an epic battle on the Alaskan island of Attu. Fighting through the fog and icy rain, avoiding pot-shots from snipers in mountain crevices, lugging heavy machine guns up slippery inclines, and ultimately scaling a 250-foot cliff, the 17th Infantry willed its way to a crucial victory in what the author calls, 'The Queen of Battles.' Includes footnotes and photographs from the Aleutian Islands Campaign.

Rock of Gibraltar by Martin Hannan Pdf

He was owned by two friends, who just happened to be two of the most famous men in world sport - Sir Alex Ferguson, the toolmaker's apprentice from the tough streets of Glasgow who became Britain's greatest-ever football manager, and John Magnier, the publicity-shy former senator of Ireland and patrician owner of the world's most successful breeding operation, Coolmore Stud. Even his own trainer, the Maestro of Ballydoyle, Aidan O'Brien, did not rate him as the stable's best hope for glory, but Rock Of Gibraltar proved to be that 'one in a million' racehorse who went on to set a world record by winning seven Group 1 races in succession, including two Classics, beating the mark set by the legendary Mill Reef 30 years ago. The Rock's jockey, Michael Kinane, christened him the 'ultimate racehorse', while Kinane's French rivals gave the horse another nickname - 'The Monster'. Yet, after all his extraordinary feats on the racecourse, Rock Of Gibraltar gained even greater fame after his retirement to stud, as Ferguson and Magnier fought over the horse's most valuable asset - his very genes. In this definitive account of Rock Of Gibraltar's life, we learn how the ultimate racehorse became the 100 million prize in a supposedly private but very public contest over stud fees that engulfed the world's most famous football club, Manchester United.

The Battle of Wisconsin Heights, 1832 by Patrick J Jung Pdf

The story of a devastating episode of the brief, bloody Black Hawk War—includes illustrations. The brief war that Black Hawk waged against the United States in 1832 saw half of the people under his leadership killed in savage massacres and the entire Sauk tribe removed to Iowa. Yet this dismal outcome cannot obscure the superb military leadership that Black Hawk demonstrated during many phases of the war. His crowning glory occurred at a place called Wisconsin Heights, where his force of about 120 warriors held off an estimated 700 American militia volunteers while the women, children and elderly under his protection escaped across the Wisconsin River. This book tells the dramatic story and includes maps and illustrations.
