Book Excerpt :

"Vinny tells his roller-coaster story with passion and humor, inviting all of us to join his bicycle ride through the many winding paths of his life. Coming out, growing up, serving his country and fighting for others against all odds: This journey gives hope to anyone on the front line of our equality struggle." Lt. Dan Choi West Point Graduate, Iraq War Veteran and Infantry Officer, honorably discharged for telling the truth and starting a group of West Point LGBT Graduates. An accomplished, aging man is preparing for yet another dream-to conduct the first known bicycle-book tour (which will require peddling both miles and books.) Who will believe 2,500 miles is possible for a man with gravely serious medical issues-at age sixty-five? Witnessing the lifetime spiritual journey of Vinny Pirelli, starting at age six with his very first bicycle, you track his development of being the only boy among many siblings, through growing pains of adolescence and teen years. He struggles with, and represses homosexual tendencies, putting his emotions into bicycling and writing songs. As a young adult, Vinny proves successful at whatever he attempts-even in building a family with the first girl he had sexual feelings for. As a ten-year Army leader, he learns hard lessons of losing friendships, love and trust, with the ultimate betrayal of his own father. J.V. Petretta is a graduate of U. of Maryland, European Division. He is a ten-year U.S. Army Veteran with three overseas tours, including Vietnam. After his honorable discharge, he received a Meritorious Service Medal for distinguished service as 1st Armored Division's Nuclear Control Chief. In addition to earning numerous business accolades, he organized and conducted a 5,000 mile bicycle tour in 1995, bringing critical awareness and funding for AIDS. Author's proceeds from the sale of this book will be divided among selected cycling and LGBT advocate groups, and his own future work in Africa. Contact: [email protected]

Book Short Summary:

Have you ever built, owned, rented or visited someone at a cottage on an ocean beach, a lake or somewhere off the beaten path? If you have, this story should let you relive many fond memories. If not, but if you have thought or dreamed about doing it, you have the chance to live some of the adventures. Building a cottage with no power tools or electricity was quite an experience. If you have done any casual or serious fishing, you should enjoy the two chapters that cover striped bass, bluefish, cod, flounder and other fish. These are based on forty years of personal experience and first-hand knowledge. They tell of how it was done, including the related what, when, where and why. The resulting fishing successes and dilemmas encountered are enlightening. Many of you have eaten shellfish and devoured lobsters. Few however have experienced how they are harvested. Some interesting encounters are discussed. Our pets have a chapter all to themselves. It covers their uniqueness and idiosyncrasies during their beach adventures. People that enjoy pets will relate to these encounters. If you enjoy nature or wildlife, there are chapters about each of these covering our many experiences and interactions with both. The chapter on GROWING UP relates to the beach activities and stories of our two daughters and four grandchildren. This is a chance to look back and enjoy some memories, or a chance to look ahead and anticipate what's in front of you. There are other interesting chapters relating to activities with our friends and the total Saquish environment. In all the chapters there are stories about specific instances that took place. A couple were life-threatening, most are positive, some are humorous and a few are out-and-out funny. Good reading!

Book Short Summary:

The Redress Movement refers to efforts to obtain the restitution of civil rights, an apology, and/or monetary compensation from the U.S. government during the six decades that followed the World War II mass removal and confinement of Japanese Americans. Early campaigns emphasized the violation of constitutional rights, lost property, and the repeal of anti-Japanese legislation. 1960s activists linked the wartime detention camps to contemporary racist and colonial policies. In the late 1970s three organizations pursued redress in court and in Congress, culminating in the passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, providing a national apology and individual payments of $20,000 to surviving detainees.

Dublin, 1898: Hoping to amass a fortune, Captain Charles Whitmore is preparing to set off on a long sea voyage, deliberately leaving his wife Georgina almost penniless to fend for herself and the servants. Georgina, who has been desperate to break free from a life of violent marital abuse, is relieved that he will be gone for some years, but nevertheless the future is frightening. Then help comes from an unexpected quarter: an organisation that helps women escape lives of abuse or genteel poverty makes Georgina an offer. They propose that her house should become a school designed to train women to seek employment in the American Southwest. The very idea is at once shocking and appealing. Can Georgina step into the unknown and lead the women under her care into the future?
