Chad Rickard was a decorated, multi-tour Iraq War veteran with hundreds of combat missions under his belt. He was a seasoned infantryman with a desire to join the fight in Afghanistan against Taliban and Al Qaeda forces bent on keeping American influence out of the region. In 2008 the opportunity arose to deploy as an infantry advisor to the Afghan Army and he seized the chance. After months of intensive training he embedded with an Afghan Army Infantry Battalion in Khost, Afghanistan. There he began a fierce and deadly nine-month fight against Haqqani Taliban along the Pakistan border of Eastern Afghanistan. His gripping memoir guides you through intense mountain warfare from an austere outpost as well as street to street fighting and hostage situations in downtown Khost City. This skillfully written, award winning memoir, is one you are sure to enjoy as Rickard shares the thrill of victory and the agony of losing men in battle.
I Once Was Lost is the story of the largest rescue of dogs to succeed without support of local authorities. The rescue took over a year and featured protests, assault, and lawsuits, before over one hundred dogs and one snake were saved from abuse and neglect. Also included: information on how to evaluate a rescue, how to identify a hoarder, difficulties with the enforcement of laws pertaining to animal care, and suggestions for how to put puppy mills, failed rescues, and fake rescues out of business.
From Matt McAvoy of Kindle Book Review:
“Laura’s writing is quite lovely – heartfelt and sincere, with a stern presentation of the facts. The book is incredibly well-researched and intelligently considered, and the cruel treatment is contextualized not by anger, but by balanced collation of events, studies and dog behavioral training practices. This is an important book which needed to be written by a disciplined professional and an animal lover, both of which clearly apply to Laura. She is a very articulate and hard-working author.”

In “The Band Director’s Lessons About Life”, author Donald Lee draws on his decades as both a band director and religion teacher to create modern-day parables from the classroom. People of any religious persuasion—or none—will be delighted and inspired by how these band-room vignettes shine a spiritual light on everyday experiences. The parables are short enough to read in the bathroom yet deep enough to ponder for days.
It’s a cross between “Chicken Soup for the Soul”, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”, and “Conversations with God”. If you liked any of those books, you’ll love this one.
