90 Miles to Paradise by Jaime Sabina Perez Summary

The year is 1994. After a routine night of fishing, 16-year-old Jaime and his friend Josue encounter three hardened criminals on a Cuban beach. Their goal: Find a raft - anything seaworthy - and get to the United States. They're offering money, a lot of it, for the one the boys have. For many teenagers, it would have been a lucky, one-time windfall. But when Jaime watches the three men take to the open sea, it kindles a dream. He wants what these men are seeking: Freedom. But for Jaime, the son of hardworking, stalwart Communists, the path to the United States will be anything but smooth. Soon afterward, Fidel Castro "opens the coast," granting amnesty to anyone who wants to leave. Jaime and his friends are already building a new boat that they believe will withstand the ocean and get them to the United States. But fate has a twisted path ahead: Like many fleeing Cubans, Jaime and his friends will be rescued from the open waters by the U.S. Coast Guard and taken to the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, an American-run refugee camp that will swell to a population of more than 35,000. The future is uncertain; news is scarce. Is anyone really destined to get to the US? Or does their future lie on the other side of the concertina wire, back in Communist-run Cuba? As a teenager alone in the camps, Jaime tests the boundaries and bends the rules. He survives a daring-but-failed escape attempt, a riot, a hurricane, and even Guantanamo Bay's soon-to-be-infamous "Camp X-Ray." Along the way, he is helped by a series of unlikely friends, from a voodoo priest to an Army chaplain. Now a successful businessman in North Carolina, Jaime Perez had a ringside seat to one of the most remarkable periods in Cuban-US history. In simple, quick-moving prose, he takes the reader back to the sights, sounds and experiences of Cuba in 1994, and makes us understand the forces that make people go to such great lengths to be free. 90 Miles to Paradise is an unforgettable story of courage and faith.

The Cavalry Is on Its Way and the Horses Have Been Replaced with Tanks by John Burkhimer Summary

As always and forever, normal daily everyday life speaks and expresses our emotions and reactions to the mistakes, good fortunes, bad luck, tragedy and the humorous events we see all around us. John Burkhimer has taken some of the personal instances and events in his life and compiled them into a collection of humorous, yet somewhat cynical poems. Written for a mature audience, "The Cavalry is on its way and the Horses have been replaced with Tanks" is a collection of brief and to the point, non-analytical poems regarding his interpretations and observations on history, relationships, love, working at a newspaper, restoring automobiles as a hobby, and growing up in Bucks County, Pa. On a deeper level however, his poems brush along the fine line of faith, luck, death and depression, which incorporates itself into the central backbone of his interpretations and observations in this collection of work. Even then, these topics are portrayed with a humorous, yet cynical twist in its simplest form of basic poetry.

Let Freedom Ring by Kitty Kelley Summary

A bestselling author and legendary photographer present an illuminating look at a pivotal moment in our nation's history: The March on Washington Despite the heat and humidity, people came in droves from across the country and around the world, heading for the towering spire of the Washington Monument in our nation's capital. All of the marchers—black, white, Christian, and Jew—shared the same dream: freedom and equality for 19 million African Americans. Almost 300,000 strong, the marchers poured into Washington, D.C., to bear witness, to hear the immortal words of Martin Luther King, Jr., and to petition Congress to pass the President's Civil Rights bill. Stanley Tretick, a seasoned photojournalist best known for his iconic images of President Kennedy and his family, was also in the crowd, drawing inspiration from the historic scenes unfolding before him. In this magnificent book, his stirring photographs of that day are published for the first time. Accompanied by an insightful essay and captions from bestselling author Kitty Kelley, as well as a moving foreword by Marian Wright Edelman, Let Freedom Ring commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington and celebrates the crescendo of the Civil Rights movement in America.

90 Miles to Freedom by K. C. Hilton Summary

Prepare yourself for an emotional roller coaster. The counselor suggested I start a journal and write down my thoughts. He called it 'Journal Therapy' and said it would help me cope with my feelings.

A life envied by all, but it was stolen from me. I know I made a mistake. But I'm the one struggling to forgive myself. To explain I need to start from the beginning. But before I do, I must be honest and admit that I wasn't perfect. No, I had a secret. A secret that came with a price. A secret that will haunt my dreams forever.

Freedom 7 by Colin Burgess Summary

Inevitably, there are times in a nation’s history when its hopes, fears and confidence in its own destiny appear to hinge on the fate of a single person. One of these pivotal moments occurred on the early morning of May 5, 1961, when a 37-year-old test pilot squeezed himself into the confines of the tiny Mercury spacecraft that he had named Freedom 7. On that historic day, U.S. Navy Commander Alan Shepard carried with him the hopes, prayers, and anxieties of a nation as his Redstone rocket blasted free of the launch pad at Cape Canaveral, hurling him upwards on a 15-minute suborbital flight that also propelled the United States into the bold new frontier of human space exploration. This book tells the enthralling story of that pioeering flight as recalled by many of the participants in the Freedom 7 story, including Shepard himself, with anecdotal details and tales never before revealed in print. Although beaten into space just three weeks earlier by the Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, Alan Shepard’s history-making mission aboard Freedom 7 nevertheless provided America’s first tentative step into space that would one day see its Apollo astronauts – including Alan Shepard – walk on the Moon.
