In the late 1800s, two young friends from Copenhagen, Denmark, move to America to seek their fortunes. Emil Kielberg and Carl Birkenfeld begin their lives in their new country by mining gold. They save their money, and in time both men follow the individual paths of their dreams. Carl opens a saloon, while Emil homesteads more than 160 acres of Arizona land. As time goes on, their businesses flourish. Carl becomes the constable of Tucson, and Emil raises prize-winning fruit. With his finances now in order, Emil is free to send for his lifelong love, Ida, who awaits his summons in the old country. Emil and Ida marry, and Carl marries a Spanish girl named Dolores. The men remain friends, even as they become husbands and fathers. The families are so close, in fact, that Emil’s son ends up marrying Carl’s daughter. Grandchildren arrive—as does tension, because no family is perfect. But Emil and Carl have a friendship built on a strong foundation, and they will keep their families together, despite the dangers of the Wild West and the rapid changes in the country they now call home. Based on a true story, this historical novel delves into the lives and thoughts of two Arizona pioneers and their families from late nineteenth century to the Great Depression and beyond.

What is it like to live in the shadow of the steeple? Author Virginia Cooper Stokes knows because she's been the wife of a minister for over three decades. Through heartwarming personal testimony, she opens up about the churches in which her husband has served and the devastating reality of moving on when God called them to a new church. It's hard to raise children under the watchful eyes of an entire congregation. It's difficult to minister to your enemies in the face of harsh criticism. But on The Journey of a Shepherd's Wife, Virginia is able to find her place in the church and a way to use her talents for God—the only one we should desire to please. Ministers' wives and churchgoing women alike will find an ally in this shepherd's wife who knows what it is like to feel tremendous hurt as well as great joy and love in the ministry. The Journey of a Shepherd's Wife gives us a very honest look at Virginia's role as the wife of a pastor, mother, and woman in the church. It is my prayer that churchgoers everywhere will see the gift we have in those God has placed as role models in our lives. —Jeanette Heinicke, church member, missionary, Tompkinsville, KY

Francis Nenik's thrilling slice of narrative non-fiction "Journey through a Tragicomic Century" is about the life of the forgotten writer Hasso Grabner, told with great joy in language and love of absurdity. The journey takes us from the Young Communists in 1920s Leipzig to wartime Corfu, with Grabner falling from steelworks director to a vilified author banned from publishing his work in the GDR. Francis Neniks "Reise durch ein tragikomisches Jahrhundert" handelt vom Leben des vergessenen Schriftstellers Hasso Grabner — erzählt mit großer Freude am Fabulieren und Liebe zur Absurdität. Die Reise führt uns nebst anderen Stationen von den Jungen Kommunisten Leipzigs in den 1920er Jahren nach Korfu, ganz nah begleiten wir Grabner auf seinem wilden Ritt vom Stahlwerksdirektor zum verunglimpften Autor, dem es verboten war, sein Werk in der DDR zu veröffentlichen.

MATEJ S JOURNEY TO AMERICA

Matej's Journey to America is a creative-nonfiction chronicle exploring the forces that drove our immigrant ancestors to new lands. After Adam and Eve's eviction from Eden, man slowly scattered with a great dispersion occurring about 2700 BC as the Lord confounded the tongues of presumptuous Babylonians building a tower to heaven. Among the afflicted was an Aryan slave named Chmelka who was growing hops (chmel in the new Slavic language) to flavor beer for his Semitic masters. As the Slavs fled northward toward unknown Czech lands, other tribes migrated in all directions. According to The Book of Mormon, the righteous Jared took a Semitic clan from Babel across the mountains, deserts and oceans to a New World . . . later named America. Another Semitic clan that passed through Babylon 850 years later included a young Abraham, destined to be the patriarch of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. He introduced the concept of a single God revered by all his religious descendants, but despite their many commonalties, each of these three great religions seem convinced it has the only correct formula for salvation, justifying incredible atrocities with God always on its side. The descendants of the first Chmelka struggled as great civilizations developed and fell through the turmoil and bloodshed of the Dark Ages. Marco Polo awakened Europe in the late 13th century to the riches of the Far East, giving rise to explorers like Christopher Columbus who stumbled onto the North American Continent in 1492. The Protestant Reformation began to divide the Holy Roman Empire at the time, adding to the bloodshed as Austria, Prussia and France fought for domination in Europe. Meanwhile, Spain, England and France were colonizing and competing for control in the New World that was becoming home to an increasing number of European emigrants looking for a better life. The American Colonies fought for independence and then began to absorb all lands from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Thomas Jefferson purchased the immense Louisiana Territory from Napoleon in 1803, after which mountain men opened the West to homesteaders, miners and ranchers. My great-great-grandfather Matej was born as the Rocky Mountain fur trade boomed in 1825, and grew up on a 13-acre farm in Moravia where the Chmelkas had been serfs since Charlemagne was crowned the first Holy Roman Emperor a millennium earlier. Matej became a Dragoon in the Austrian Imperial Army and helped put down a revolution in Prague in 1848 – the year gold was discovered in California – but war spread and life worsened for European peasants. Gold, homesteads and wild Texas longhorns free for the taking lured thousands of oppressed Europeans to America on steamships and railroads now making long-distance travel feasible. After Prussia defeated the Austrian Empire – including Bohemia and Moravia – and then France, Matej's family escaped its misery and immigrated to Nebraska in 1871. They found a difficult life with grasshoppers, drought, hail and fires destroying crops . . . spurring Matej's fourteen-year-old son to join a Texas cattle drive and then dodge Indians and gunfighters for fourteen years in the Wild West. New technologies in farm equipment, transportation and communications made America the envy of the world in 1902 when Matej died and was buried near the prairie church he helped build. Matej's Journey to America honors him and his fellow immigrants – ordinary men and women generally lost in history – for the legacies and opportunities they gave us in our great land of freedom.
