Amber Joy Douglas, a smart, pretty girl with honey-colored eyes, is about to start her senior year soon. Unlike her friends, however, she hasn't the foggiest idea of what to do after graduation. Secretly, she wants to get married and have kids, but she doesn't even have a boyfriend and there's nobody in town who "floats her boat." Her guidance counselor has great expectations for her, though. She believes that Amber will have her choice of many colleges that are seeking bright minority students of her caliber. So Amber feels pressured to do something big-change the world perhaps? After all, it is 1966! Her mother encourages her to work hard and have fun her senior year. She assures Amber that God is at work behind the scenes paving her future. Amber loves the Lord and is committed to trust Him with His plans for her. One evening a harrowing experience lands Amber into the arms of her big brother's best friend, Tyler Ferguson, a Marine home on leave from Vietnam. For the past three summers, Amber and Ty have managed to miss each other. She's been out of town with a youth mission group when he comes home. Ty invites Amber for a Coke so the two of them can catch up with what's been going on in their lives. They hit it off and agree to play tennis every morning and group-date at night. Before long, Amber and Ty realize their affection for each other has grown deep. Is it love? Ty has beat the odds so far, but the life expectancy of a combat Marine in Vietnam is thirty days. Would it be wise to make promises they may not be able to keep? Now what is she supposed to do? Back to square one.

Back in print, the fascinating history of Little Golden Books, in celebration of their 75th anniversary in 2017! With a Foreword by Eric Carle. Eminent children's historian Leonard Marcus' "A Golden Legacy" chronicles the fascinating story of the creation, marketing, and worldwide impact of Little Golden Books, the most popular children's books of all time. Launched during the dark days of WWII, Golden Books such as "The Poky Little Puppy "were an instant sensation. Hallmarked by their superlative quality yet affordable to nearly all, they changed the cultural landscape even as they mirrored our quickly changing postwar culture: the powerful influence of television, the post-"Sputnik" renaissance in American science education, and the birth of the civil rights movement. Lavishly illustrated with the iconic Golden Book covers and colorful artwork that generations of children have pored over, "A Golden Legacy" is a compelling tale of mavericks, innovators, and renowned authors and illustrators. . . a stirring celebration of the humble books in which we scrawled our names, with the cardboard cover and the shiny gold-foil spine.

This unique and informative monograph presents the results of a gathering of notable civilian and military personnel in a symposium to celebrate the United States Air Force's fiftieth anniversary. Among the papers presented were those covering individual reminiscences and the results of historical research encompassing not only the germinal Army Air Service but also futuristic aerospace concepts. The symposium celebrated the technical and operational achievements and the leaders of those years and their predecessors. The papers delivered during the symposium offer glimpses into the history of the United States' air arm during the twentieth century. The reminiscences of the great airmen and civilian leaders who participated give human coloration to that story.
