Summary "For readers of Jon Krakauer and The Lost City of Z, a remarkable tale of survival and solitude--the true story of a man who lived alone in a tent in the Maine woods, never talking to another person and surviving by stealing supplies from nearby cabins for twenty-seven years. In 1986, twenty-year-old Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the woods. He would not have a conversation with another human being until nearly three decades later when he was arrested for stealing food. Living in a tent even in winter, he had survived by his wits and courage, developing ingenious ways to store food and water, to avoid freezing to death. He broke into nearby cottages for food, clothes, reading material, and other provisions, taking only what he needed, but terrifying a community never able to solve the mysterious burglaries. Based on extensive interviews with Knight himself, this is a vividly detailed account of the why and how of his secluded life--as well as the challenges he has faced returning to the world. A riveting story of survival that asks fundamental questions about solitude, community, and what makes a good life, and a deeply moving portrait of a man who was determined to live his own way, and succeeded"--Publisher description.

Title Oppose any foe : the rise of America's Special Operations Forces

New Enterprise feed - Sat, 04/15/2017 - 8:10am
Title Oppose any foe :
Author Moyar, Mark, 1971- author.
Edition: First edition.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "In a nation where the military is revered, America's Special Operations Forces are the exception to the rule. From raiding enemy compounds under cover of night to advising international resistance movements, special operators have earned a reputation for extraordinary skill and daring. Yet, by the same token, they are accused of overreaching, siphoning personnel from other units, and recklessness that does more harm than good. In Oppose Any Foe, Mark Moyar chronicles the rocky seventy-five year existence of the Special Operations Forces (SOF), from the first Army Rangers during World War II to today's much-lauded Seal Team Six. Since its inception, SOF's popularity, funding, and power have gone through dramatic cycles of boom and bust. Presidents from Roosevelt to Kennedy to Obama have championed the tactical precision of SOF and have allocated them huge budgets, only to have their ambitions undermined by military disasters, infighting at the Pentagon, or congressional opposition. Indeed, the "elite" status of the SOF has led to acts of hubris and dangerous plays for more power with far-reaching consequences. While prejudice against the SOF may be easy to understand, Moyar argues that the Special Operations Forces are a powerful tool--but one which we have yet to properly utilize and appropriately incorporate into military planning. Oppose Any Foe is an ambitious work of military history, but it is propelled by gripping tales of military courage. Weaving together thrilling stories of SOF missions and insightful analyses of the programs' successes and failures, Moyar offers an important institutional coming of age story."--Provided by publisher.

And Don, Sylvia's undeserving but charming husband, just won't stop hanging around. JJ's newfound wealth forces everyone to consider what more they want and deserve from life than what they already have, and how they might go about getting it.
