I am currently reading an August 1939 edition of Lost Horizon, by James Hilton. This is the story of Shangri-La and was apparently very popular in the '30's. This book was rescued by my wife from the high school library: it was slated to be tossed into the trash. The book is a hardcover but the size of a modern paperback. The writing style is different, but pleasant to read!

Gwenlee;

I am a History Addict and I just finished reading one of the best descriptive Historys' of the Cdn. Army in W.W.I (1914-18) entitled "When Your Number's Up", by Desmond Morton. For the past three nights I have been in the trenches of northern France and Belgium. Woke yesterday morning with mud on my feet.

Camac, I love history, I'll have to see it that book is at the local library. I read 1776 a few months back and I loved it. I recently read a book by Billy Kennedy about the Scot-Irish in North Carolina.

Gwenlee;

I'm glad to hear that you love History. To say I love it is an understatement of massive proportion, I Live, Breathe , Eat and Sleep History. I have in my Library 190 books on History ranging from Ancient Greece to W.W.II and Korea. I have books on Canadian and U.S. History, British History and of course Scottish History. I have lost track on how many web sites I have bookmarked on History. You talk about addicted. My youngest daughter, Shannon told me once that if there is a Hell and I get sent there my punishment will be no History Books. I hope you can find that book in your Library but I doubt it as it just recently was published. Good Luck.

Camac.

Camac even as a kid I was into history. My friends thought I was weird. I am blessed to live in an area of the US that is very full of history. I just moved from a very historical piece of property. I rented a home that was about 100 years old on property that has been in this family since 1835. This family use to own the Etowah Indian Mound. The main house dates to 1835, General Sherman use to come and visit here. I have recently moved to a small town called Euharlee another historical area it has an old wooden cover bridge that was designed by a former slave and the ruins of the old mills are here. I wish my kids would get excited about history. It is so much of what we are. I use to go the the national and state archives and it was really neat to be able and sit and read letters between the governor of Georgia and the government of the Cherokees and feel a connection. I say that because at that time my ancestors were living in Cherokee territories. Some of my Scottish ancestors had Cherokee Partners and I have heard oral history about the Cherokee removal. I'll stop blubbering. But it sad that young people aren't as interested in history or politic.

Brave Battalion, saga of the 16th Battalion (Canadian Scottish) in WW I by Mark Zuehlke. 99% 0f what I read is History.
J. Padraig Moore; I noticed you read Lost Horizons. If you have not already done so watch the 1937 movie of the same title with Ronald Coleman, Jane Wyatt (Spocks Mom) and Sam Jaffee (Dr. Zorba on the old Ben Casey series)

Innocent Traitor A novel of Lady Jane Grey by Alison Weir. This is what the Boston Sunday Globe says...."Splendid...In giving narrative voice to her subjects Alison Weir brings us into emotional contact withthem in away that unadorned historical account does not"....Each chapter is one characters voice as to what to was to lead up to her harrowing end.

]AN EXCERPT FROM A POEM THAT I WROTE ON 10/11/07

WE CAN'T CHANGE WHAT WE HAVE DONE....
BUT ONLY TAKE A LESSON FROM EACH EXPERIENCE
AND MAKE THE MOST OF EACH MINUTE THAT WE HAVE LEFT
AND TELL OURELVES THAT IT IS OK TO LIVE, LAUGH AND CRY.....
PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE ALL WORK TOGETHER
TO GIVE US WHAT WE CAN AND SHOULD EXPERIENCE
AND WE NEED TO CHERISH ALL OF THE TIME
THAT WE SPEND WITH OURSELVES AND OTHERS MAKING THE MOST OF THE SPECIAL MEMORIES THAT ARE OURS..
AND THE ONES THAT WE HAVE YET TO CREATE WITH THE PEOPLE THAT WE HAVEN'T MET!!!!![/SIZE]
