women who shaped america

Women Who Shaped America

By Wright Writers of Dayton

Contributing Author Judi Fryman will be at the bookstore.

American women have always had the grit and determination to influence others and make important things happen. From working for the young colonies to homesteading on the Great Plains and the Wild West to navigating the hardships and deprivations of America’s Civil War, two world wars, and the Great Depression to the Space Age, women led, followed, or blazed new paths for themselves, their families, and all women. No matter which period we examine, American women often have left an indelible mark on history and on those who came after them.

The true story of her life as a young teenager living in Dayton, Ohio, during World War II. As the Great Depression ends and WWII begins, the Kibler family finds their lives drastically challenged by her father’s meager white-collar salary, by life in a miserable trailer camp, by devastating fire, and by her mother’s near-death illness.

Father and daughter follow news of every battle and locate places on their world map. Ruth Ann finds joy in new friends, in the beauty of Island Park, and in being a teenager.

 

Unknown Horizons by Ruth Kibler Peck

Unknown Horizons:
The Lewis and Clark Expedition A Novel

by Ted Brusaw and Ruth Kibler Peck

This is the thrilling story of two men commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the unknown land of the Louisiana Purchase—the vast, mysterious land from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean. In 1803 Meriwether Lewis and William Clark gathered a crew of adventurous men of strength and ability to form the Corps of Discovery. Could they find a waterway passage through this unknown territory to the Pacific Ocean? Each man knew the trip would be hazardous, even life-threatening. How would the native Indian tribes react to them? How were they going to communicate with the Indians? They would claim the land as they went, doubling the size of the new nation, the United States of America.

The Alabaster Box

by Marla Cross

The Alabaster Box is not a devotional book containing a series of entries designed to inspire the Christian reader with an uplifting story or thought for the day. It is a year’s worth of worship activities; the implementation of which will require some intensive mental exercise. It is not the book for those wanting a feel-good read. Nor is it for those unwilling or not yet ready to accept a challenge to their typical weekly worship experience. The Alabaster Box is a guidebook for the followers of Christ who long to take their worship of Him to a deeper place than they have ever gone.

Cloud of Witnesses

by Marla Cross

This is an intriguing book about the Cloud of Witnesses who are watching real-life situations being lived out here on Earth. The unique stories keep your interest and are an encouragement to live out your own similar situations God’s way. Whether you think about it or not, you are constantly under surveillance. Even if you don’t star in your own reality TV show, don’t think for a second you aren’t in the spotlight. Author Marla Cross sheds some light on an interesting theory about actions, perceptions, and the ultimate test of character. Are you the same person in public as you are in private? Do your convictions only dictate your actions when it’s convenient and for the show of others? In times of indecision, consider not only earthly observers, but also those that might dwell overhead—heavenly hosts, even.

My Child, I’ll Still Be Loving You

by Vickie L Weaver and Kattarina Storost

Turtles telling the time of day? Crocodiles eating birthday cake? Porcupines playing peek-a-boo? Oh, no! What’s a child to do? There’s so much more with animals galore. The solution comes from a comforting source.

Vicki's Dancing in the Stars

Dancing In The Stars: Carroll Webster:
International Dance Luminary
of Vaudeville and Hollywood

by Vickie L. Weaver

A nostalgic look into the now mostly extinct world of Vaudeville, Dancing in the Stars is the true story of Carroll Webster, a talented eighteen-year-old who dreams of a professional dance career. With the odds stacked against him, the handsome and charismatic orphan endures four years of grueling 1930s dance marathons for a chance to break into show business.

Should he and his attractive partner Diane survive the marathons, their dreams of fame will be overshadowed by the Great Depression, World War II, and powerful social forces working to squeeze the lifeblood out of the career they love.

As for Diane, the blonde has her sights set on Carroll, even though a romance could ruin their partnership. Carroll can’t say he isn’t tempted, but for years he’s dreamt of having a family with Mary, an elusive dark-haired beauty who could become the love of his life.

  • 1/4 cup pickle relish

  1. After boiling the eggs, let them cool. Remove the shells from the eggs and chop them.
  2. Drain the tuna from the can and put into mixing bowl.
  3. Add the other ingredients to the bowl and with a spatula stir the mixture. Spread the mixture on your bread and make your sandwich.
