"When I am fully immersed in my life back home, I'll close my eyes and think of this place, and it will emerge in my mind as the perfect magical place in the woods-waiting, always waiting, for someone to walk across its welcoming porch, open the front door, and arrive at the Shangri-La of one's dreams. For all who have been here, they know. They understand the magic. I believe that's why it's been a closely guarded secret for so many years...shared only amongst discerning and respectful friends." On New Year's Eve of 1971, two high school friends spent a freezing cold night up in the mountains near their small-town homes. Little did John and Rob know this trip would plant the seeds for a decades-long undertaking, bringing friends from different walks of life together and providing a refuge to spend time away from the stresses of everyday life. By the Big Cedar Tree is J.W. Embury's captivating account of how building and preserving a secret cabin hidden deep within the Willamette National Forest helped teach five men the importance of respecting nature. As they spent years learning the nuances of the land and holding wilderness pentathlons to test their skills, they also forged lasting bonds of friendship. Enter the woods, walk by the Big Cedar Tree, and step through the front door of a mystical cabin into an unforgettable story.

As I headed south from the Black Hills of South Dakota, the driving was some of the most difficult I had ever encountered. It wasnt the snow or the ice on this lonely two-lane road that troubled me, it was the uncertainty of what was ahead and the regret of what I was leaving behind that was overcoming me with emotion and clouding my vision with the tears of fear I had made the wrong decision. I had just left behind my job, the woman I loved and everything I was accustomed to en route to take over a roadhouse in the Native Country of the southwest. Looking like a dust bowl refugee in my old Currier pick-up loaded with my tools, my Harley and 140-pound Shepherd dog named Chelsea. I had agreed with my father to go clean up this shit hole of a bar he had built back in the 60s. He had leased it out when we left Arizona. I was in about the 5th grade when we left and over the years it had become infamous. The current lessee had failed to pay the rent for the last couple of years and needed to be removed. Compounding that situation was the over three dozen police calls the local sheriff had received in just the last year. As I look back now those fears, though real, were slightly exaggerated. I was unaware at the time, that lifes experiences had groomed me for what was to come. It would be the best job I ever hated and the worst job I ever loved. Little was I to know, life in hell is hilarious.

"This is a novel to remember." -- Anne Rivers Siddon Four elderly southern women share a house, a history, and heartbreaking secrets. "Baby girl, I hope you're listening real good to what I'm gonna tell you about that sure-enough miracle we got us. Had to be a miracle, because in all my born days, I didn't never think it could turn out like this. Didn't never think you'd be sitting right here on this very porch with me, hearing me talk about all us folks you don't know nothing much about yet.... Back then, I didn't really know that all the folks who came ahead of us are like the brown roots of a big old vine growing close to the porch, and even though those roots are way down deep in the ground where we can't see them, they're still there. Always. And we grow from them, our whole lives, and then, if we're lucky, others grow from us. Well, I expect that the ones who came before us-black and white-had things they had to keep still about, too, just like me and Miss Cora. Things we had to do, whether we liked it or not. And then never speak of them again." Augusta Trobaugh is the acclaimed author of fine novels including Praise Jerusalem, Sophie and the Rising Sun, and coming soon, Music From Beyond the Moon.

Morning and Evening Meditations from the Word of God

There are many devotional books available containing brief, daily inspirations that benefit all who read them. This book is different in two respects. The first is obvious: it contains two readings per day—732 in all. The second, more important difference is that the author wanted to do more than offer inspiration; this would make this book no different than so many others. The messages in the book are study sketches in that the content is not only inspirational, but also educational, challenging, and encouraging. Most of these writings were based on author Michael J. Akers’s teaching of adult Bible studies for more than thirty years and learning what really brought adults to want to deepen their knowledge and application of the Word of God.
