ggf. zzgl. Versand

In New York Times best-selling author Andrew Gross' propulsive thriller, set amid the drought-stricken oil country of Colorado's beautiful high plains, Ty Hauck makes his long-awaited return rallying beaten-down farmers and ranchers against a giant energy company in a deadly confrontation involving murder, retaliation, and cover-up. Leading a tour down the rapids outside Aspen, Colorado, whitewater guide Dani Haller comes upon the dead body of a close friend. Trey Watkins' death is ruled an accident. Finding evidence that seems to back up her suspicions that it wasn't, she takes her case to Wade Dunn, the local police chief and her ex-stepfather, with whom she shares some unresolved history. Wade insists the case is closed, but Rooster, a hot air balloon operator in town, claims he saw something from the air she should know. When he suddenly dies in a fiery crash, Dani threatens to take her suspicions public, goading Wade into tossing her in jail. When an old friend contacts Ty Hauck and says his daughter is in trouble, he doesn't hesitate to get involved. Together the two step into a sinister scheme running deep beneath the surface of a quiet, Colorado town that has made a deal with the devil to survive. But in the square off between giant energy companies and beaten-down ranchers and farmers, one resource is even more valuable in this drought-stricken region than oil - water. They both will kill for it. One Mile Under is a thrilling rapid run of hair-raising twists and unforeseen turns set against one of the most provocative environmental issues of our time. 1.

The Alameda sisters, raised by a no-nonsense mother, grow up to be single parents in very different circumstances. Dorothy's husband vanishes when her son, Malachi, is very young while Danielle's husband is killed by a drunk driver, leaving her a widow with her son, Jacob, to raise alone. Both women fear their sons will follow the path of others in their urban community and end up in a gang, on drugs, involved in crime, or in jail. They feel the responsibility of raising a son alone is almost an impossible task. For Dorothy there is a lot of resentment because Malachi's father went on to raise a new family. Danielle on the other hand is depressed and grief-stricken because she has never stopped missing her husband. Pen or Discipline by Dominique Wilkins is not a happily-ever-after tale. Its ending is all-too-real. The book raises questions of best parenting styles. It examines the stresses of single parenthood and where single parents can go to get help. Pen or Discipline will engage the reader from start to finish. In it, readers' clubs will find a lot to identify with and material for candid discussion. 1. Language: English.

How the Poor Can Save Capitalism: Rebuilding th...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This audiobook has a simple message for business leaders: your primary goal must be to serve and raise the poor. The poor need to enter the economic system to buy products, put money in banks, and move into the middle class. This is the only approach that can possibly save the American Dream. John Hope Bryant, successful self-made businessman and founder of the nonprofit Operation HOPE, says business and political leaders are ignoring the one force that could truly re-energize the stalled American economy: the poor. If we give poor communities the right tools, policies, and inspiration, he argues, they will be able to lift themselves up into the middle class and become a new generation of customers and entrepreneurs. Raised in poverty-stricken, gang-infested South Central Los Angeles, Bryant saw firsthand how our institutions have abandoned the poor. He details how business loans, home loans, and financial investments have vanished from their communities. After decades of deprivation, the poor lack bank accounts, decent credit scores, and any real firsthand experience of how a healthy free enterprise system functions. Bryant radically redefines the meaning of poverty and wealth. (It's not just a question of finances; it's values too.) He exposes why attempts to aid the poor so far have fallen short and offers a way forward: the HOPE Plan, a series of straightforward, actionable steps to build financial literacy and expand opportunity so that the poor can join the middle class. Fully 70 percent of the American economy is driven by consumer spending, but more and more people have too much month at the end of their money. John Hope Bryant aspires to "expand the philosophy of free enterprise to include all of God's children" and create a thriving economy that works not just for the 1 percent or even the 99 percent but for the 100 percent. This is a free enterprise approach to solving the problem of poverty and raising up a new Ameri 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. D. Jackson.
