The little girl heard the doorknob turn. Her heart beat hard as she looked for a place to hide, but there was no time. Already, he stood in the door grinning at her. She knew what he wanted. She knew she must do it-or else. The girl was born unwanted. From the beginning, her mother's family vilified her. She bounced from school to school, struggling, failing, always an outsider. Men sought to use her for one thing only; they never saw her as a person. How the girl longed to show her value. How she longed to be a part of-to have a friend. To join others, she made decisions-bad decisions-that pushed her further and further down a path toward hell. By the time she was a young women, the girl, Brenda, reached a low so hopeless she no longer wished to live. Coat-less, she slipped outside into the frigid Alaskan winter and waited. Then a mysterious voice she'd heard once or twice before called to her. This is a true story of events told to the author by "Brenda Kramer."

In 2007, award-winning editor Tara L. Masih put out a call for Intercultural Essays dealing with the subjects of "culture, race, and a sense of place." The prizewinners are gathered for the first time in a ground-breaking anthology that explores many facets of culture not previously found under one cover. The powerful, honest, thoughtful voices-Native American, African American, Asian, European, Jewish, White-speak daringly on topics not often discussed in the open, on subjects such as racism, war, self-identity, gender, societal expectations. Their words will entertain, illuminate, take you to distant lands, and spark important discussions about our humanity, our culture, and our place within society and the natural world. _______ REVIEWS _______ "This collection of essays provides a lens into intercultural experiences that will offer important insights for teachers as well as students...and can lead to a greater understanding of and appreciation for our global community." - Dr. Zaline M. Roy-Campbell, Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Program in Teaching English Language Learners, Syracuse University "This contemporary collection of essays will be an invaluable resource. I'm especially impressed by the range of themes..." - Mary McLaughlin Slechta, ESL instructor, Nottingham High School

Step aside, Bill Gates! Here comes today′s real technology guru and his totally original, laugh-out-loud New York Times bestseller that looks at the approaching new millennium and boldly predicts: more stupidity ahead. In The Dilbert Principle and Dogbert′s Top Secret Management Handbook, Scott Adams skewered the absurdities of the corporate world. Now he takes the next logical step, turning his keen analytical focus on how human greed, stupidity and horniness will shape the future. Featuring the same irresistible amalgam of essays and cartoons that made Adams previous works so singularly entertaining, this uproariously funny, dead-on-target tome offers half-truthful, half-farcical predictions that push all of today′s hot buttons - from business and technology to society and government. Children - they are our future, so we′re pretty much hosed. Tip: Grab what you can while they′re still too little to stop us. Human Potential - we′ll finally learn to use the 90 percent of the brain we don′t use today, and find out that there wasn′t anything in that part.
