In 1974 a disenfranchised young man from a broken home set out to do the impossible. With a hundred dollars in his pocket, a beat up cavalry saddle, and a faraway look in his eye, John Egenes saddled his horse Gizmo and started down the trail on an adventure across the North American continent. Their seven month journey took them across 11 states from California to Virginia, ocean to ocean.. As they left the pressing confinement of the city behind them, the pair experienced the isolation and loneliness of the southwestern deserts, the vastness of the prairie, and the great landscapes that make up America. Across hundreds of miles of empty land they slept with coyotes and wild horses under the stars, and in urban areas they camped alone in graveyards and abandoned shacks. Along the way John and Gizmo were transformed from inexperienced horse and rider to veterans of the trail. With his young horse as his spiritual guide John slowly began to comprehend his own place in the world and to find peace within himself. Full of heart and humor, Egenes serves up a tale that's as big as the America he witnessed, an America that no longer exists. It was a journey that could only have been experienced step by step, mile by mile, from the view between a horse's ears.
Sometimes life gets complicated.
Your doctor has informed you that you have cancer. Or fibromyalgia. Or perhaps lupus. When you receive a serious
health diagnosis, you can do one of three things: act as if nothing happened and try unsuccessfully to muddle through, shut down completely…or find your new normal.
In Gain with Pain: Chronic Illness Productivity Hacks, Erin Zarro shares her daily struggles with multiple serious health
conditions, and how she found her new normal. She gives you exercises to do to mentally prepare yourself for the day, shares how to plan activities so you don't completely exhaust yourself or worsen your condition, and suggests ways you can get past the grief of your diagnosis and move on with your life.
Even if you don't have serious health problems, you can use the list-making techniques outlined in this book to help
organize your time so that the rigors of a busy schedule no longer get in the way of your productivity and happiness. To allow you the kind of time to enjoy friends, family, and the life you deserve.
Gain with Pain: Chronic Illness Productivity Hacks is Erin's first self-help book about coping with the daily struggles of chronic illness. You may also enjoy Life as a Moving Target, a poetry chapbook that explores what life with a chronic illness is really like.

Economic Solutions to Current Social and Political Issues in the U.S.
Poverty is a structural problem created by economic thinking errors and institutional poverty traps, revealed and discussed in detail in this book. Neff argues that America is a welfare state.
The working poor are a social problem created by politics. The low minimum wage does not support a most basic lifestyle and as a result, food stamps, free medical services and other social programs become necessary to cover the gap. Half of the Federal budget supports the poor and the elderly across the country. Americans, mostly the middle class, subsidize this insufficient minimum wage with their taxes and unknowingly and indirectly support the bottom line of companies that underpay their employees. Economic thinking errors are the source of our entitlement society.
Democratic principles are distorted. The current political system allows the wealthy and large corporations to covertly influence legislation and bend economic laws in their favor.
Too many Americans are blinded by dreams of success and vote against their real interests and values. This is the American voting paradox, institutionally supported by gerrymandering and voting restrictions that favor the libertarian ideology.
RESTORE TRUST is an invitation to take a fresh look at the current socio-economic reality. Neff discusses economic solutions to dysfunctional politics and offers a conclusive call to action to help Americans restore trust and defend their needs and core values. He offers opportunities to create a shift to strengthen our democracy.
This is the story of two very different young men, from two very different worlds. Tyson is from the rough streets of Trentan, a crime-ridden, drug-infested, inner-city neighbourhood. Joey is from the affluent northern suburbs, a community of privilege and opportunity. The worlds of these two young men collide through a chance encounter, and as a result, they begin to question their life situations – which are at critical points. This connection sparks a shared journey of self-development; one which brings about necessary changes for both men.
The story has a self-help thread throughout, which is inspired by the author’s personal experience of living with anxiety and depression. The text conveys the truths that enabled him to rise out of suffering, and to live a life of peace and fulfilment. The teachings are centred on the concept of “present moment awareness”, and how this can be applied to everyday life.
