Peace like a river by Leif Enger ( Recording )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 372 libraries worldwide
When Reuben Land's older brother Davy kills two marauders who have come to harm the family, the town is divided between those who see him as a hero and those who see him as a cold-blooded murderer. On the morning of the trial, Davy escapes and his family sets out in search of him. With Jeremiah at the helm, the family covers territory far more glorious than even the Badlands. By the time the journey is over, they will have traversed boundaries of a different nature entirely. Set in the 1960s and marked by a soul-expanding sense of place, Peace Like a River is a heroic quest, a tragedy, a romance, and a heartfelt meditation on the possibility of magic in the everyday world.

Silent night the story of the World War I Christmas truce by Stanley Weintraub ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 118 libraries worldwide
In the beginning months of World War I, a very strange thing happened. After the fierce trench warfare of November and December, on Christmas Eve, 1914, the fighting spontaneously stopped. Men on both sides laid down their arms and came to celebrate Christmas with each other. They shared food parcels across the lines, sang carols together, and erected Christmas trees with candles. They buried the dead, exchanged presents, and even played soccer together. Weintraub uses the letters and diaries of the men present to underscore the reality of this strange, delicate, twilight-like state of truce, when peace and good will really were for all men. It was with reluctance that the truce came to an end, and men had to get back to the business of killing.
