New Non-Fiction for the Book Club Collection

 

Gypsy Boy, is a memoir by Mikey Walsh.  He was born into a Romany Gypsy family.  He lived in a secluded community.  Gypsies are wary of outsiders and if you choose to leave you can never come back. Mikey did not attend school, and knew very few people who were not gypsies.  Living in a caravan  was an unusual upbringing.  Mikey finally had to make the painful decision to stay or escape.  This is a fascinating and heartbreaking memoir.

 

Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness by Alexandra Fuller is a sequel to Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight.  This is a biography of Fuller’s family, but mainly the story of her mother, Nicola.  It is a funny, terrifying and exotic tale.  A story of love, war, loyalty and forgiveness.  If you liked her first biography I am sure you will enjoy the sequel.

 

J. R. Ackerley was not a dog lover until he met the love of his life, his German shepherd.  My Dog Tulip is the story of Ackerley’s sixteen year friendship with this dog.  Tulip was skittish, possessive and wild.  I can relate.  My entire life I wanted a German shepherd.  When I was young we always had smaller dogs.  In the early 80’s I bought a shepherd for my two sons.  A week after we brought her home my boys went on a two week hiking trip leaving me and Odin home alone.  By the time they returned she was my dog!!  Not so much wild or possessive but she was skittish and I was her favorite.  She liked my sons, but certain friends of theirs she was very skittish around.  When repair men came she would actually cling to the walls.  I wish I was lucky enough to have had her for sixteen years.  She died from cancer when she was five.  I am looking forward to reading about Tulip.

 

Animals Make Us Human by Temple Grandin focuses on how to give our animals the best and the happiest life, on their terms and not ours.  She identifies the core emotional needs of animals whether it is domestic dogs and cats, farm animals or zoo animals. As an animal scientist she has researched this topic for thirty years.   This is a must read for animal lovers. 

 

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand is already a very popular book club selection.  An Army Air Forces bomber crashes into the Pacific Ocean during World War II.  Louis Zamperini is a survivor finding a raft that he manages to climb aboard.  Drifting on the endless ocean he faces leaping sharks, thirst and starvation.  This is the story of survival, resilience and redemption.

I've been browsing on-line more than three hours these days,
yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
It's beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally,
if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web might be much more useful than ever
before.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to
get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal.
I must say that you've done a great job with this.
In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox.
Excellent Blog!
