We’re starting this New Year with some exciting books to be released soon. Watch for special announcements about these upcoming titles.
Mountain Majesty: The History of CODEP Haiti – Where Sustainable Agricultural Development Works, is a fascinating account of an organization that has grown from humble roots as a mission project of the Episcopal and Presbyterian churches to a self-sustaining operation that continues to change lives – and terrain – in five watershed areas of impoverished Haiti. John Winings weaves history, culture and the personal stories of key Haitian leaders of CODEP into this two volume, entertaining and sometimes mind-boggling treasure of Haitian realities, leadership insights and pride in a successful, very human, endeavor.
B17 Flying Fortress Restoration: The Story of a WWII Bomber’s Return to Glory in Honor of the Veterans of the Mighty Eighth Air Force will intrigue any fan of World War II aircraft restoration, or anyone whose family was connected to the Mighty Eighth Air Force in World War II. The technical aspects of this aircraft restoration story rival the poignant vignettes of the individuals whose parents or grandparents or uncles sat in the navigator’s seat, or flew in one ‘just like this’ in missions throughout the war. Illustrated with dozens of photos and written with humor and pride in the achievements of the restoration team, this book amply satisfies its mission to ‘honor the veterans of the Mighty Eighth Air Force.’ Author Jerome J. McLaughlin has crafted a classic that every aircraft restoration fan and every family with ties to the Mighty Eighth will appreciate.
If you have friends who would be interested in either of these books, be sure to let them know – or better yet, encourage them to subscribe to our newsletter so they get the early announcements directly!
