The perfect age group for this Young Readers Novel is 10-17, but it is acceptable for adults as well. THE HEART OF THE PEOPLE In the deep woods, there dwelt a small band of nomads known as the Peacemakers. They were a quiet people who trusted in the goodness of the Father of Spirits and lived from the fruit of the ground. Because they lived in such close communion with the land, the Peacemakers were a humble people, holding gentleness in high esteem. They were a people made up of many tribes of the old country that had been brought together by the Great Hand of Mercy. In the early days, there were many peoples scattered over the old lands of Ability. Ability lay east of the Triall and was an ever-present reminder to the Peacemakers of the land they were now exiled from. The river was, for the most part, feared by many who wandered in the wilderness; for, it was the great river that had separated them from their homeland. The river was believed to be the curse that kept them estranged from their heritage, thereby keeping them besieged by the evil ways of the Horsemen. Yet, it was this same river which forced them to seek every means possible to live peaceably together. Hence, their namesake. Stephen is a fictional story about a Nomadic Tribe. Based on biblical principals, 'Stephen' teaches life lessons to yearning hearts. Gary Zackery, who authored the book, is pleased to welcome John Borgstedt as co-author. John is the author of 'I Love You Mom, Please Don't Break My Heart.'

America has just elected its first woman president, independent candidate Lydia Cortez-Simpson. The daughter of a conservative Texas cattleman and his 'illegal' mexican domestic, Cortez-Simpson's vicious political campaign toughens her for the fight of her life against an out-of-control military dictator who has seized control of China and launched a pre-emptive invasion of Taiwan. 'General X' is a misguided, philosophically minded 'patriot' determined to restore China's past glory. Ruthless to the core, General X 'demonstrates' China's nuclear prowess in horrifying fashion and President Cortez-Simpson quickly finds herself in an eyeball-to-eyeball nuclear confrontation. Worse yet, General X has schemed with the disillusioned chief scientist of the Geneva Institute to obtain a fearsome new weapon borne from the world's most powerful particle collider. President Cortez-Simpson turns to Parker James, a spy who can beat you with both his fists and his brains. In a race against time, James teams up with brilliant Taiwanese-American scientist, Doctor Lillian Tong, to thwart Doctor Z's plans to place this planet-killing weapon in General X's hands.

The soul preserves its experience from previous lifes and looks up those who related to ther soul before, for good or evil.

Often they come to me in bits, and then I have to piece them together.Those who enter their past lives often recognize the people there as the people who are with them in this life, friends or relatives, even if they look different or are of a different nationality. That is how it works with me. I know the people that I have seen in past lives, although, of course, I do not know them all and some I have yet to get to know.When I get to know new people, I can tell whether I have known them before in a past life or lives. I feel like I know some of them and not others, and I only connect with the people that I know, that is, those that I have known in a past life. Some people I know in and out and trust completely, even though I have never seen them before. I have often thought about how peculiar this is and wondered about it, but I got an explanation when I experienced my past lives and recognized people there that I feel connected to in this life.I decided to keep a record of these dreams, write them down in books, and last autumn, I started to make a story out of them. Fact or fiction? I do not know, but all I can say is this: These are my past lives. Mine and the other peoples who appear in the stories and they are the same people who are with me today, although not all of them.When I sleep, I return to the past, to the olden days, and I meet myself and others whom I know today. I see the course of my life, and that of others, throughout many lives and I understand various things that were previously a mystery to me. For example, why am I interested in this? Why do I like him even though I cannot stand him, or more to the point, even though I should not be able to stand him? Why do I dislike this woman even though I do not know her? Why is a certain woman such a good friend of mine even though she has so many character traits that I would not tolerate in others? Why can I not eat meat? Why am I so terrified of spiders? Why am I so terrified of fire?ved many lives and this book contains only two of them.
