Fred Shellenberg knew many characters, delightful and otherwise. And Fred Shellenberg, a good-natured man with a dry sense of humor and love of life, is one of them. This Livingston, Montana native recounts these stories in Character in Paradise, A Yellowstone Memoir. He weaves local life and his family history and life experiences, including his military service in World War II and his years in the Alaskan frontier. Russell Chatham, renowned artist from Livingston, says in the introduction, ''The vignettes are clearly all real, and they create a historical framework that brings the events to life. Perhaps this recollection's greatest strength is that it is told honestly and simply without a hint of artifice, in the voice of a proud, bona fide Native Son.'' Fred said that he actually wrote this for his kids and grandkids. Peek over their shoulder. Listen and enjoy! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wayne Evans.

GPS Declassified examines the development of GPS from its secret, cold war military roots to its emergence as a worldwide consumer industry. Drawing on previously unexplored documents, the authors examine how military rivalries influenced the creation of GPS and shaped public perceptions about its origin. Since the United States’ first program to launch a satellite in the late 1950s, the nation has pursued dual paths into space - one military and secret, the other scientific and public. Among the many commercial spin-offs this approach has produced, GPS arguably boasts the greatest impact on our daily lives. Told by a son of a Navy insider - whose work helped lay the foundations for the system - and a science and technology journalist, the story chronicles the research and technological advances required for the development of GPS. The authors peek behind the scenes at pivotal events in GPS history. They note how the technology moved from the laboratory to the battlefield to the dashboard and the smartphone, and they raise the specter of how this technology and its surrounding industry affect public policy. Insights into how the system works and how it fits into a long history of advances in navigation tie into discussions of the myriad applications for GPS. Published by University of Nebraska Press. "A carefully researched, well written, fast-paced, and thoroughly enjoyable book." - Space Review "As an introduction to GPS, its history, uses, issues and concerns GPS Declassified can't be beat." - New York Journal of Books "Expertly weaves the story of GPS development and its ever-expanding use." - Choice 1.

At the end of the 24th century, war is fought in a civilized manner: Each side hires mercenaries to engage in combat in specifically designated areas. To the victor go the spoils - whatever they may be. After a couple of assignments involving more intrigue and skullduggery than the Cutter Force Initiative ever wanted, the unit is looking forward to being part of a straight-up, short-term industrial war on Earth. Cutter agrees to a support role offered by an old army comrade who's now a general in a larger military force. The pay is good, the unit happy. All they have to do is basic ranger stuff: sneak and peek, shoot and scoot. But what starts out as a corporate fight to occupy a valuable piece of contested territory quickly goes sideways, and once again Cutter and crew find themselves in the middle of situations in which things aren't as they seem, and the unit must determine the truth - or lose more than just a battle. 1.

Erika: His name is Michael Crist. My boyfriend's older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He's handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college's basketball team and now gone pro, he's more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me. Michael: Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika. My brother's girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven't had her body, I know that I have her mind. That's all I really want, anyway. Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college. In my city. Unprotected. The opportunity is too good to be true. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they're out. We've waited. We've been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true. 1.
