HRH The Duke of Kent

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/hrh-the-duke-of-kent...
His Royal Highness Prince Edward The Duke of Kent KG GCMG GCVO ADC(P), first cousin to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, has devoted his life to the service of his country. Even before he served twenty-one years as a regular soldier in the British Army, he was introduced to this life of service by his widowed mother, HRH Princess Marina, The Duchess of Kent, during an extensive tour of the Far East at the time of his seventeenth birthday. His interest in modern technology, especially computing and engineering, in issues of health, fitness and social welfare, and in the development of the intellect, has seen him become the patron, president or active member of more than one hundred charities and social organisations. His military service, and deep interest in military history, sees him making a particularly important contribution to many military-related organisations - the chief of which must be the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. At the time of his eightieth birthday in October 2015, Prince Edward remained one of the busiest members of the royal family. This book is offered as a tribute to his life of service, and to the myriad organisations, large and small, local, national and international, that make up the fabric of the United Kingdom in the twenty-first century.
Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger A 15-Minute Summary & AnalysisPreview: William Kent Krueger's Ordinary Grace is reminiscent of other classics and best-sellers: it takes the historic style of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, the point-of-view variety from J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye, and a nuanced perspective of religion like Arthur Miller's The Crucible; mixes them all together; and then uses the result to tackle the difficult subject of death in a complicated way, similar to John Green's more contemporary Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars. Essentially, Ordinary Grace uses a historical setting, the lens of religion, and the knowledge of a reminiscing narrator to tackle the finality of death. It's intriguing, it's informative, it's dynamic, and it's sure to be a classic in its own right. PLEASE NOTE: This is a Summary and Analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Richard Henry Lee of Virginia

Richard Henry Lee of Virginia

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/richard-henry-lee-of-virgin...
Richard Henry Lee played a pivotal role during the American Revolution, yet he remains one of the most misunderstood revolutionaries. His contemporaries, as well as modern historians, deemed him a political opportunist or dismissed him as an enigma. In bridging the gap between Lee's private interests and public career, J. Kent McGaughy seeks to overturn many of the misconceptions about Lee and shows that, throughout his life, he remained dedicated to his family and public service. By separating fact from fiction and unraveling the history of Lee's life and the times in which he lived, J. Kent McGaughy brings to light not only the truth about Lee, but also the hidden history of the American Revolution.

Finally certain that something has gone terribly wrong, they fly by floatplane to the lake where the missing man was last seen. Locating Cork's campsite, they find no sign of their father.

https://www.kobo.com/us/it/ebook/the-dark-stuff-3...
Nel mondo estremamente competitivo del rock ci sono due tipologie di persone: le superstar e gli schiavi, le leggende viventi e quelli che si consumano lentamente. In The Dark Stuff Nick Kent, il più celebre giornalista britannico, delinea i profili di 22 tra i talenti più dotati e al contempo votati all'autodistruzione, da Brian Wilson a Miles Davis, da Jerry Lee Lewis a Keith Richards, da Syd Barrett a Kurt Cobain. Allargando i confini del new journalism, Kent - che suonò la chitarra nei Sex Pistols nel 1975 e fu poi il frontman dei Subterraneans - va in tour con i musicisti, ascolta le loro confessioni intime, ne cattura la decadenza e i pensieri turbolenti con una capacità di analisi rara nel mondo del rock multimilionario. Ma anziché celebrare lo stile di vita "sesso, droga e rock'n'roll" dei suoi soggetti - che lui stesso ha in gran parte condiviso - l'autore lo disseziona con chirurgica precisione e uno sguardo critico penetrante. Pubblicato originariamente nel 1994, The Dark Stuff è stato aggiornato e arricchito con capitoli su Eminem, Johnny Cash, Prince e Iggy Pop.
