Stepping heavenward by E Prentiss( )

2 editions published in 1871 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stepping Heavenward" by Elizabeth Prentiss (first published in 1869), tells the story of Kate and her quest to live a better life. By watching her godly mother (with whom she becomes easily irritated at times), Kate learns about striving for excellence. A no-nonsense approach to Christian living, "Stepping Heavenward" employs good humor, all the while leading the reader to ponder deeper, eternal matters. The diary of Kate reveals innocence coupled with an acute awareness of her naturally human tendencies to selfishness. Through "Stepping Heavenward," we learn that small things really do matter, as Kate matures into a young woman with true depth of character. While Kate's freckle-faced candor is truly refreshing, the artfully penned expressions woven throughout "Stepping Heavenward" also provide great reading. There is humor, seriousness, and some sadness as Kate progresses through the stages of life. Through it all, author Elizabeth Prentiss displays an astounding ability to put the struggles faced by all men and women who desire to live for Christ yet are confronted by their flawed humanity, into words. "Stepping Heavenward" is an elevating, and interesting, book that both mothers and daughters will enjoy. - Amazon

"The Pirate City is the story of the Algerian pirates who were the scourge of the Mediterranean sea during the early to mid-1800s. They would plunder the ships of other sovereign nations, and as a result were a wealthy little city-state, until their demise in the Barbary War. In this story, set during the heyday of the pirates, a merchant and his sons Mariano and Lucien are captured aboard their trading vessel, and taken as prisoners to the pirate capital of Algiers."--Visionforum.com

The settler and the savage : a tale of peace and war in South Africa by R. M Ballantyne( Book )

3 editions published between 1877 and 1884 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruyter quietly told the savage that he would then have to take the consequences, and urged, in addition, that it was folly to suppose the Kafirs were in a condition to make war on the white men just then. It was barely a year since they had been totally routed and driven across the Great Fish River with great slaughter. No warrior of common sense would think of renewing hostilities at such a time--their young men slain, their resources exhausted. [Publit]
