121 pages, bibliography, illustrated in color and b&w.  Brayton Family Tree included.  Matthew Brayton disappeared from his home in Crawford county in 1825 and reappeared 34 years later white searching for his father.  Matthew had lived with and been traded by various Native American tribes during his absence.  Young adults continue to be drawn to Matthew as a role model in these disquieting times.  They are deeply affected by his determination to find himself, his roots and his raison d'etre.  Teachers are using this book as a classroom tool, to begin discussions and research into history, geography and Indian customs.

Avery 2015 1594632626 Hardcover New new Jacket 
Based on the landmark course in compassion training Jinpa helped create at Stanford Medical School, A Fearless Heart shows us that we actually fear compassion. We worry that if we are too compassionate with others we will be taken advantage of, and if we are too compassionate with ourselves we will turn into slackers. Using science, insights from both classical Buddhist and western psychology, and stories both from others and from his own extraordinary life, Jinpa shows us how to train our compassion muscle to relieve stress, fight depression, improve our health, achieve our goals, and change our world." --

1681 Karmel, Miriam Being Esther
Milkweed Editions 2014 157131105X Softcover New 
In this touching exploration of aging. In spare, unsentimental prose, Miriam Karmel provides readers with one of literature's finest portraits of the last months of a woman's life. Sad and amusing, unpretentious and ambitious, Karmel's prose brings understanding and tremendous empathy to the character of Esther Lustig, a woman who readers will recognize and embrace. Born to parents who fled the shtetl, Esther Lustig has led a seemingly conventional life -- marriage, two children, a life in suburban Chicago. Now, at the age of 85, her husband is deceased, her children have families of their own, and most of her friends are gone. Even in this diminished condition, life has its moments of richness, as well as its memorable characters. "Being Esther" reflects the need, as Esther puts it, for better roadmaps for growing old.
