A lotus grows in the mud by Goldie Hawn( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 2,649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With her trademark effervescent humor, Goldie tells us about the lessons she's learned and the wisdom she feels she's been given, in the hope of giving something back. Not a Hollywood "tell-all," this book is a very personal look at moments private and powerful, a trip back through a life well lived by a woman well loved. She takes us on a tour of her go-go dancing years in New York in the sixties, her phenomenal success on TV's Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, and then on to the world of Hollywood stardom and such memorable films as the Oscar-winning Cactus Flower, Swing Shift, and Private Benjamin. She speaks of her relationship with her family--her partner, Kurt Russell; her children, Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson, Wyatt Russell, and her stepson, Boston Russell--her growing faith, her curiosity for that which she doesn't yet know, and her unquenchable thirst for knowledge and understanding.--From publisher description

9 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Across the country, the revolutionary MindUP program, developed under the auspices of the Hawn Foundation, established by Goldie Hawn, is teaching children vital social and emotional skills. By understanding how their brains work, children discover where their emotions come from and become more self-aware. They learn to appreciate the sensory aspects of their lives and to value the positive effects of mindfulness, compassion, and kindness. This, in turn, empowers them to manage and reduce their own stress--and helps them be happy. Those who have seen the effects of this program have been eager to learn how to implement it in their own homes and use its practices for themselves, too. Here, for the first time, its secrets are being shared with all parents and children.--From publisher description
Haatchi & Little B : the inspiring true story of one boy and his dog by Wendy Holden( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the amazing true story of one astonishing little boy and the very special dog who has changed his life forever. On a bitterly cold night in January 2012, Haatchi the dog was hit over the head and abandoned on a railway line in London, England, to be hit by a train. Somehow, the puppy survived the blood loss from his partially severed leg and rear tail and managed to crawl away to safety. Fortunately, Haatchi was rescued, although vets couldn't save his leg and tail. He came to the attention of Colleen Drummond and Will Howkins, who aren't just kind-hearted dog-lovers. They are also the dad and stepmother of Owen (known to his family as Little B for 'little buddy'). Owen, now aged eight, has an extremely rare genetic disorder which causes his muscles to permanently tense. Largely confined to a wheelchair, Owen was withdrawn and anxious and found it difficult to make friends. But when the little boy awoke the morning after Haatchi arrived, he immediately fell in love with the severely disabled rescue animal who would, in turn, rescue him"--

Tomorrow to be brave by Susan Travers( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was early spring 1942, and under the pitiless sky of the Libyan desert the climax of the great siege of Bir Hakeim was about to begin. General Koenig, the commander of the Free French and the Foreign Legion in North Africa, and his two thousand troops had been surrounded for fifteen days and nights by Rommel's Afrika Corps. Outnumbered ten to one, pounded by wave after wave of Stuka and Heikel bombers, the general and his men seemed doomed. Though their situation was hopeless, they chose to reject the Desert Fox's demand for surrender. Instead, one moonless night, the French made an audacious and suicidal bid for freedom by charging directly through the German lines. Leading the way was Susan Travers. The only woman ever to serve officially in the French Foreign Legion, there was the indomitable Englishwoman, speeding across the minefields of 'no man's land' directly towards Rommel's deadly Panzer tanks, her foot hard on the accelerator, doing her job: driving the general's car. That it was leading two thousand men in one of the great military exploits of the Second World War, the legendary mass break-out from Bir Hakeim, that it would see her hailed as the heroine of the night and eventually earn her both the Military Medal and the Legion d'Honneur, was not on her mind as the night exploded around her and German artillery lit up the desert sky. Her only thought was this: she was trying to save the life of the man she loved. Tomorrow to be Brave is the story of Susan Travers's extraordinary life, from her privileged childhood in England through her rebellious youth partying her way across interwar Europe, to her rash decision to join the Free French forces at the outbreak of World War II. In search of adventure - and a break from her stifling upper-class world - she could never have dreamed the pivotal role she would play. From her part in the North African campaign through her time after the war serving in the French Foreign Legion as a regular officer - the only woman ever to have achieved this - there was enough adventure and passion, heartbreak and heroism, to fill a hundred lifetimes
