David Halberstam: Summer of '49

Summer of '49


Description

With incredible skill, passion, and insight, Pulitzer Prize winningauthor David Halberstam returns us to a glorious time when the dreams of a now almost forgotten America rested on the crack of a bat.The year was 1949, and a war-weary nation turned from the battlefields to the ball fields in search of new heroes. It was a summer that marked the beginning of a sports rivalry unequaled in the annals of athletic competition. The awesome New York Yankees and the indomitable Boston Red Sox were fighting for supremacy of baseball's American League, and an aging Joe DiMaggio and a brash, headstrong hitting phenomenon named Ted Williams led their respective teams in a classic pennant duel of almost mythic proportions one that would be decided in an explosive head-to-head confrontation on the last day of the season."

The latest volume in the glorious bestiary "Flanimals" features the prolific class of flying, crawling invertebrates collectively known as Blugs - The endless variety of Movs, Bants and Zubs. The metamorphosis from Monk Worm to Frag Drier, and the evil incarnate that is the Bletchling. The book is a compulsive bed-time reading for Summer of '49 ebook pdf children and disturbed adults alike - Night, night - And mind the Blugs don't bite. - Proven branding advice from industry experts and insiders. After twelve years of missionary work in the northeast province of what was the Belgian Congo, building up a simple medical service, civil war erupted with horrific effects. During the war Helen was brutally beaten and raped and left with no choice but to return to Britain (this story is told in 'Give me this Mountain'). She quickly returned to the Congo in 1966 to assist in the rebuilding of the nation. She helped establish a new medical school and hospital (for the other hospitals that she built were destroyed) and served there until 1973. In the eight years following the war, despite endless frustrations, again and again God showed his unfailing guidance and unstinted provision for her needs. This book is the story of the joys and adventures of re-establishing the medical work, the church building programme and the work of forgiveness, necessary after the destruction of the civil war.
