As the Crow Flies is an epic rags to riches tale from Jeffrey Archer, author of the bestselling The Clifton Chronicles. If your dream is big enough, not even your enemies can stop you . . . Charlie Trumper's earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather's sales patter from behind his costermonger's barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, young Charlie wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps – his burning ambition is to own a shop that will sell everything: 'The Biggest Barrow in the World'. Charlie's progress from the teeming streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace is only a few miles as the crow flies. But in Jeffrey Archer's expert hands it becomes an epic journey through the triumphs and disasters of the century, as Charlie follows a thread of love, ambition and revenge to fulfil the dream his grandfather inspired.

This book is meant to inspire people, to teach a lesson of how perseverance, true grit, and persistence with the help of God can get them to the ultimate level of success. Kevin Crowe is a multitalented overachiever when you look at the life obstacles he has overcome. He is a native of Texas who moved to Colorado Springs at age three. He came from nothing; he was abandoned, unwanted, and unloved. He slept on floors as homeless people stayed at his house. He watched adults who were meant to guide and protect him do drugs, and, much worse, he watched his grandfather stab a man to death. Never did he think he would find himself in the same position as the man who lay on the ground later on in his adult life. Kevin became homeless at age fourteen due to his grandmother's overdosing on heroin and cocaine. Kevin is a rare statistic; he is one of the few people who beat the system. He was never put into a foster home, because he would run; he slept on streets and in Laundromats instead. He forged his way into high school at age seventeen. He was never in a stable environment until he was nineteen and was blessed to be asked to join the Thompson family. He graduated high school and graduated college from Kansas State University. Kevin's story is meant to let all know they can beat the odds; their situations do not limit their potential. Kevin is a prime example of great things from humble beginnings.

“The sun came out after the war and our world went Technicolor. Everyone had the same idea. Let’s get married. Let’s have kids. Let’s be the ones who do it right.” The Way the Crow Flies, the second novel by bestselling, award-winning author Ann-Marie MacDonald, is set on the Royal Canadian Air Force station of Centralia during the early sixties. It is a time of optimism--infused with the excitement of the space race but overshadowed by the menace of the Cold War--filtered through the rich imagination and quick humour of eight-year-old Madeleine McCarthy and the idealism of her father, Jack, a career officer. Ann-Marie MacDonald said in a discussion with Oprah Winfrey about her first book, “a happy ending is when someone can walk out of the rubble and tell the story.” Madeleine achieves her childhood dream of becoming a comedian, yet twenty years later she realises she cannot rest until she has renewed the quest for the truth, and confirmed how and why the child was murdered.. Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, called The Way the Crow Flies “absorbing, psychologically rich…a chronicle of innocence betrayed”. With compassion and intelligence, and an unerring eye for the absurd as well as the confusions of childhood, , MacDonald evokes the confusion of being human and the necessity of coming to terms with our imperfections.

The connection between crows and people extends far back in the history of the world. Here in the Pacific Northwest, corvids (crows, jay, and ravens) are as plentiful as rain. They frequent our forests, mountains, and seas. Because of the close proximity in which they dwell to humans, they are very much a part of our daily lives. They scavenge in our yards, streets, and trees. They perch atop stop signs, telephone poles, and automobiles. They frolic at the park, bus stops, and grocery stores. Dressed in black with a fan-shaped tail, their song is a repeated, Caw, caw, caw. Not known for being picky when it comes to food, they are known to dine on everything from insects and fruit to Burger King fare and Chinese takeout. And when it comes to lodging, crows hide their bowl-shaped nests constructed from twigs, moss, and leaves in trees or on the ground. Crows are known for their intelligence. Prevalent in the mythology of Native Americans, crows were often referred to as tricksters. Their brains are large compared to their body size. Befriend or antagonize a crow, and he will remember you. He may even pass on his praise or complaints to friends and relatives. Crows can be mischievous, passionate, playful, wrathful, and social. They have been known to drink coffee, fashion tools, and lure fish just like humans. And so long as you dont get on their bad side, crows make pretty good neighbors. This collection of poetry attempts to simply preserve observations of Corvids as we pass through the various seasons in the Pacific Northwest. One need not look too far for the human element in these poems. It is my hope this book honors these wondrous creatures. Enjoy!
