Staying out of hell by James Alexander Thom( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 93 libraries worldwide
Author's note: "Like my character, Scotty Montgomery, I grew up in the idyllic prewar Midwest, was a Marine, and later a journalist appalled by the apparent cheapness of life and the world's casual disregard for human suffering. Like my protagonist, I am unable to reconcile my country's two roles: the citadel of humane idealism, and the leading world merchant of death-dealing weapons. I hope by this novel to awaken our benumbed souls to the awful absurdities with which we live."
Hoosiers by Pat McDonogh( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 57 libraries worldwide
One of the most rousingly enjoyable sports movies ever made, this small-town drama tells the story of the Hickory Huskers, an underdog basketball team from a tiny Indiana high school that makes it all the way to the state championship tournament. It's a familiar story, but sensitive direction and a splendid screenplay helped make this one of the best films of 1986, highlighted by the superb performances of Gene Hackman as the Huskers' coach, and Oscar nominee Dennis Hopper as the alcoholic father of one of the team's key players. As the drama unfolds we come to realize that many of the characters (including Barbara Hershey as a schoolteacher with whom Hackman falls in love) are recovering from disappointing setbacks, and this depth of character is what makes the otherwise conventional basketball story so richly rewarding. Like Rocky, Rudy, and Breaking Away, this is a quintessentially American movie about beating the odds and rising above one's own limitations. Just try to watch it without cheering!

When Eleanor Lahr read "Follow the River", a novel about the true experience of Mary Draper Ingles, who was captured in 1755 by Shawnee Indians and carried 500 miles from her home, she felt inexplicably compelled to retrace Mary's escape route. With little previous experince, but with plucky courage, she planned and trained extensively, then set off on her 51st birthday. Before e-mail, cell phones, Facebook, and Twitter, occaisionally alone, usually with strangers, she hiked 43 days along the Ohio, Kanawha, and New Rivers--publisher
