Description : "What I want you to do," said Mr. George Wright, as he leaned towards the old sailor, "is to be an uncle to me." "Aye, aye," said the mystified Mr. Kemp, pausing with a mug of beer midway to his lips. "A rich uncle," continued the young man, lowering his voice to prevent any keen ears in the next bar from acquiring useless knowledge. "An uncle from New Zealand, who is going to leave me all 'is money."

Description : The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal -- a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream.

Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss. Written in 1952, this hugely successful novella confirmed his power and presence in the literary world and played a large part in his winning the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature.

RECKLESS RED - Gardner D. Young 
Cold sober broke and that's no joke, we sailed from Tarpum Bay. 
Me and a bum who loved his rum, named Reckless Red O'Shea. 
We sailed her out and came about, to run Exuma Sound. 
Just me and Red and both half dead, bound for Duncan Town.
The boat we had was pretty bad, near rotten thru and thru. 
Her sorry sails long torn by gales were ragged as the crew. 
But what the hell we knew her well, she brought our rum and grits, 
And helped us raid the Island trade and gave the natives fits.
We sailed all day, me and O'Shea, no food and worse no rum. 
Until that night we saw a light, just as the darkness come. 
Deep in the cove a sloop was hove, a Haitian by her lines, 
And on the shore, ten souls or more were gathered in the pines....
THE GREAT MAHOGANY SHOAL - Gardner D. Young
Uncork the rum, and pour me some, for I drink to a wasted soul. 
A man gone down, a sailor drowned, on the Great Mahogany Shoal. 
 I went one night, where lights are bright. 
Through the doors of a dock side dive, 
And there at the bar, slumped one old tar, so drunk he was barely alive. 
 He looked at me, fresh from the sea, and spoke like a voice from the dead. 
Lad some advice, a drink's the price, and here's what the old tar said....
Gardner Dutton Young - man of action, man of words. His verses were written on bar bills, napkins and stray scraps of paper during a hard night's drinking and have been decades in the brewing. The ballads tell it like is, or was, or should have been. Gardner's world is drifting into history. This book is from a world now gone, by a man who lived it to the full.

Description : From the New York Times bestselling author of Walking the Bible and Abraham comes a revelatory journey across four continents and 4,000 years exploring how Adam and Eve introduced the idea of love into the world, and how they continue to shape our deepest feelings about relationships, family, and togetherness.

Since antiquity, one story has stood at the center of every conversation about men and women. One couple has been the battleground for human relationships and sexual identity. That couple is Adam and Eve. Yet instead of celebrating them, history has blamed them for bringing sin, deceit, and death into the world.
 
In this fresh retelling of their story, New York Times columnist and PBS host Bruce Feiler travels from the Garden of Eden in Iraq to the Sistine Chapel in Rome, from John Milton’s London to Mae West’s Hollywood, discovering how Adam and Eve should be hailed as exemplars of a long-term, healthy, resilient relationship. At a time of discord and fear over the strength of our social fabric, Feiler shows how history’s first couple can again be role models for unity, forgiveness, and love.
 
Containing all the humor, insight, and wisdom that have endeared Bruce Feiler to readers around the world, The First Love Story is an unforgettable journey that restores Adam and Eve to their rightful place as central figures in our culture's imagination and reminds us that even our most familiar stories still have the ability to surprise, inspire, and guide us today.
