American Sniper by Chris Kyle,Scott McEwen,Jim DeFelice Book Summary:

The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, and the source for Clint Eastwood’s blockbuster movie which was nominated for six academy awards, including best picture. From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war—including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates—and in moving first-person passages throughout, his wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their family, as well as on Chris. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

The Autobiography of Clabon Jones

Autobiography Of Us [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Autobiography of Clabon Jones by Clabon Jones Book Summary:

Initially, the Autobiography of Clabon Jones sounds like a simple story of a mischievous boy pulling pranks as he grows up in a small Louisiana bayou town. It tells a little about his family and his impoverished childhood. It relays the entertaining shenanigans of a little black boy growing up in the South during the 1950’s. The story discloses the events that took place as the little boy grows into manhood. What is intriguing is how the story is told and how events unfold to reveal the character and constitution of the central character, who went from being an innocent, naughty little boy, being a Point Man in the Jungles of Vietnam and on a Search and Destroy Mission in Cambodia. What makes the story interesting is that it is a true, sometimes humorous accounting of the life of Clabon Jones, an ordinary man who led an extraordinary life as he relied on his belief in God, his spiritual upbringing, his common sense and his uncommon innate strong will and determination to survive.

Autobiography of a Democratic Nation at Risk

Autobiography Of Us [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Autobiography of a Democratic Nation at Risk by JoVictoria Nicholson-Goodman Book Summary:

Expanding William F. Pinar's notion of autobiography from an individual to a national scale, this book takes the reader on an inner journey to explore the fragmented condition of the post-9/11 American national psyche. It excavates the many layers of the emerging social context within which multiple, conflicting national narratives of identity compete, and uses notions of democracy, nation, and citizen as signposts of contested terrain inside a troubled nation. While reminding us that the old, enduring questions remain unresolved, the book identifies and grapples with new questions that are central to emergent visions of 'educating for democracy' in contemporary America, situated now within a frenetic post-9/11 world.

Women's Spiritual Autobiography in Colonial Spanish America

Autobiography Of Us [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Women's Spiritual Autobiography in Colonial Spanish America by Kristine Ibsen Book Summary:

"A comprehensive and original examination of colonial Latin American religious women's spiritual autobiographies, Ibsen's book widens and deepens our vision of these texts, their authors, and the world in which they were produced."--Stacey Schlau, West Chester University "In its fascinating discussion of mediated authorship in the spiritual autobiographies of the colonial period in Spanish America, Ibsen's study illuminates for us the discursive strategies used by religious women to reinforce as well as subvert power relations in the convent."--Sherry Velasco, University of Kansas Kristine Ibsen studies women's personal narrative in colonial Spanish America, focusing particularly on the spiritual autobiography of the 17th and 18th centuries and offering revealing insights into the social and political position of cloistered women. In Spanish American literature, women's autobiography is rooted in the hagiographic tradition of vitae in which, at the request of a confessor, nuns wrote about their spiritual lives in an autobiographical form. Although not intended for publication, these narratives, or ,vidas, often circulated informally among other religious women, and were indeed often written with this in mind. Simultaneously written for their male confessor(s) and their female peers, such texts illustrate a fascinating exercise in double-voiced discourse. Placing these works in historical context, Ibsen examines them in terms not only of their discursive strategies but also of how these strategies incorporate and question prevailing social, rhetorical, and cultural structures. On the margins and between the lines, the vida has the potential to effect a profound renegotiation of the terms and forms of self-representation. Kristine Ibsen, associate professor of Romance languages and literatures at the University of Notre Dame, is editor of The Other Mirror: Women's Narrative in Mexico, 1980-1995 and author of Author, Text and Reader in the Novels of Carlos Fuentes.

The Autobiography of Elder Joseph Bates

Autobiography Of Us [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Autobiography of Elder Joseph Bates by Joseph Bates Book Summary:

Joseph Bates was born in 1792 in Rochester, Massachusetts. At the age of fifteen, he accepted a job as a cabin boy aboard the Fanny, sailing from New York City to London. Thus began his career on the high seas, which culminated in Joseph becoming a respected ship captain. During one of his trips, Joseph read the Bible his wife had packed in his trunk and was converted. Thus set in motion his most important quest—developing a deeper understanding of Scripture and a deeper love for his Lord and Savior. In 1839 Bates accepted the teachings of William Miller. Then, months after the Great Disappointment, in the spring of 1845, Joseph accepted the seventh-day Sabbath truth. Consequently, he shared this good news with James and Ellen White, which resulted in his second career as a speaker, writer, and founding pioneer of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, which was formed in 1863. The Autobiography of Elder Joseph Bates provides an in-depth look into his childhood, his adventures traversing the ocean, his conversion and the reform movements he supported, and his study of Scripture and the biblical truths he discovered.

Mirror to America

Autobiography Of Us [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Mirror to America by John Hope Franklin Book Summary:

John Hope Franklin lived through America's most defining twentieth-century transformation, the dismantling of legally protected racial segregation. A renowned scholar, he has explored that transformation in its myriad aspects, notably in his 3.5-million-copy bestseller, From Slavery to Freedom. Born in 1915, he, like every other African American, could not help but participate: he was evicted from whites-only train cars, confined to segregated schools, threatened—once with lynching—and consistently subjected to racism's denigration of his humanity. Yet he managed to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard; become the first black historian to assume a full professorship at a white institution, Brooklyn College; and be appointed chair of the University of Chicago's history department and, later, John B. Duke Professor at Duke University. He has reshaped the way African American history is understood and taught and become one of the world's most celebrated historians, garnering over 130 honorary degrees. But Franklin's participation was much more fundamental than that. From his effort in 1934 to hand President Franklin Roosevelt a petition calling for action in response to the Cordie Cheek lynching, to his 1997 appointment by President Clinton to head the President's Initiative on Race, and continuing to the present, Franklin has influenced with determination and dignity the nation's racial conscience. Whether aiding Thurgood Marshall's preparation for arguing Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, marching to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965, or testifying against Robert Bork's nomination to the Supreme Court in 1987, Franklin has pushed the national conversation on race toward humanity and equality, a life long effort that earned him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in 1995. Intimate, at times revelatory, Mirror to America chronicles Franklin's life and this nation's racial transformation in the twentieth century, and is a powerful reminder of the extent to which the problem of America remains the problem of color.

The Autobiography of Parley P. Pratt

Autobiography Of Us [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Autobiography of Parley P. Pratt by Parley P. Pratt Book Summary:

Parley P. Pratt, born April 12, 1807, was one of the important early leaders of the LDS church. His influence is felt not only through his work as one of the first apostles called in this dispensation, but also through his missionary work, writing, poems, and hymns. After being baptized around September 1, 1830 by Oliver Cowdery, he was soon called on a mission by the prophet Joseph Smith. This was the first of many such missions that Pratt served. He was a member of Zion’s Camp and served as a missionary in Canada, the southern United States, and the United Kingdom. This book gives his history in his own words. The testimonies Pratt shares of the Gospel, particularly of the Book of Mormon, are inspiring. We hope this book and the amazing experiences of Parley P. Pratt’s life will serve to strengthen the testimonies of all who read it.

He loved to hunt and ride horses and would have been a cowboy if he had not become a member of the Navy Sea, Air, Land Teams (SEAL). He had a lot of fun hunting with his mom, dad, and brother as a child. His dad and brother were his best friends growing up. Kyle learned true patience by learning to break a horse. He got involved in rodeo competitions to quench his thirst for being a cowboy. In 1992, he graduated and went to Tarleton State University with aspirations to join the military afterward. An accident in his freshman year ended his rodeo career when he had to have pins put in his wrist. He became a ranch hand for a man named David Landrum while he was still a student. Landrum’s strict expectations made Kyle want to prove himself. Kyle believes this prepared him to become a Navy SEAL. Kyle decided to quit school and join the military. He learned about the SEALs and wanted to become one. He investigated the opportunity further and learned that there was no guarantee he would become a SEAL if he joined the Navy. He would need to earn the privilege. Kyle went through the application process, but the Navy disqualified him because of the pins in his wrist. He felt his military career had ended before it began. He went back to work for Landrum and hoped to become a rancher. Shortly afterward, a recruiter called and asked if he was still interested in becoming a SEAL.

Autobiography of Miss Cornelia Knight

Autobiography Of Us [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Autobiography of Miss Cornelia Knight by Ellis Cornelia Knight,John William Kaye Book Summary:

This two-volume Autobiography by Cornelia Knight (1757-1837) was published in 1861. It was complied by the military historian Sir John Kaye from her journals and a memoir based on them, written late in life and remaining incomplete at her death. Cornelia Knight, the daughter of an admiral, was highly educated: she knew ten languages, was skilled at painting and drawing, and published novels and poetry. In 1813 she was appointed to the household of Princess Charlotte of Wales. In 1814, the Prince Regent dismissed all his daughter's attendants, and Knight returned to a life of literature and European travel. In Volume 2, Knight continues her account of her dismissal, and a later meeting with the Princess, now happily married (though she was shortly to die in childbirth). Knight spent another twenty years in the court circles of Europe: an appendix gives further extracts from her journals and her 'anecdote book'.
