Who Was Daniel Boone. by Sydelle Kramer is such a wonderfully detailed book on the life of this man. I had not idea just how rough he had it. I expected these Who Was/Is... books to be only about 30 pages but they are all over 100 pages long just filled with info.

I live in the heart of Indiana Amish country and I know that if I want delicious, home cooked food the best place to find it is in an Amish kitchen. However, loving their food and knowing how to prepare authentic Amish recipes are two very different things. That is why I was thrilled to find the Amish Cooking Class Cookbook by Wanda E. Brunstetter.
Now the inspiration behind the HBO series THE PACIFICHere is one of the most riveting first-person accounts to ever come out of the Second World War. Robert Leckie was 21 when he enlisted in the US Marine Corps in January 1942. In Helmet for My Pillow we follow his journey, from boot camp on Parris Island, South Carolina, all the way to the raging battles in the Pacific, where some of the wars fiercest fighting took place. Recounting his service with the 1st Marine Division and the brutal action on Guadalcanal, New Britain and Peleliu, Leckie spares no detail of the horrors and sacrifice of war, painting an unsentimental portrait of how real warriors are made, fight, and all too often die in the defence of their country.From the live-for-today rowdiness of Marines on leave to the terrors of jungle warfare against an enemy determined to fight to the last man, Leckie describes what its really like when victory can only be measured inch by bloody inch. Unparalleled in its immediacy and accuracy, Helmet for My Pillow is a gripping account from an ordinary soldier fighting in extraordinary conditions.
