Barry Blackstone North to Alaska and Back


Are you ready for an Alaska adventure? Travel with a pastor through central Alaska on a two-week tour of our fiftieth state. A lifelong dream to visit the land of the midnight sun, this preacher will share his spiritual insights and Biblical observations of the last frontier. Journeying with this Maine minister will be his wife of forty-five years and their first born son, who had spent his final two years of active military service stationed in Alaska with the United States Army. Experience the North Pole and fishing for grayling and rainbow trout near Fairbanks; taste for the first time Alaskan king crab; travel south with this trio to Denali National Park and witness the animal world at its finest; view Mt. McKinley from thirty-six miles; explore the Kenai Peninsula and catch the biggest rainbow trout of your life; visit old missionary friends at their airfield ranch in Chickaloon; take a plane ride over one of the greatest glaciers in the world; four-wheel through virgin forest to a glacier river; feel the spray of ice-cold waterfalls while passing through a mountain pass; share the thrill with your son of hundreds of migrating salmon bumping against your legs in a tidal stream, and pan for gold and find some nearby ancient gold dredge. Travel with the Blackstones as they experience the best of what Alaska can offer tourists as well as the explorers, and on the way learn a few spiritual lessons that might just change your life.

Barry Blackstone Though None Go With Me


Though None Go With Me is a series of observations and challenges as seen through the eyes of a Maine pastor on his first trip to India. Barry Blackstone taught for forty days at a Bible college in Kerala State in India. Here he shares his insights on the cross-cultural adventure that has forever changed the way he sees missions and the support of native works in other lands. This book includes flashbacks to youthful days. (Rural India takes the pastor back to his own boyhood in northern Maine.) In India Blackstone faced challenges with language and food, and even a broken tooth. Here each story Blackstone offers is a devotional that brings to light deeper spiritual meaning and insights–more than the actual experience itself. This book also tells of the impact the pastor's trip on people of his own church in Ellsworth, Maine, and of what they did to forge a link between a small church on the coast of Maine and a small church in the hills of southern India!

Barry Blackstone Another Day in Nazareth


Have you ever wondered what Jesus saw, heard, and did during his so-called «silent years» between his birth in Bethlehem, after his trip to Egypt, and before his baptism at the Jordan River? The only mentioned event in the Gospels from that time frame was being forgotten in Jerusalem by his parents at the age of twelve, as recorded by Luke. Barry Blackstone takes you on an imaginative journey, an inspiring jaunt into those days of Jesus as he remembers his own boyhood and early childhood experiences in the tiny farming village of Perham, Maine, a hamlet similar in size and nature to the Nazareth of Jesus' day. After visiting an archeological site in Nazareth in 2010, Blackstone realized the parallels between his obscure upbringing and the quiet years of the Savior in his boyhood home. It is the wish of the author that his reader might see through a morning dew, a blossoming flower, a blue sky, a gentle rain, a brilliant rainbow, a crowing rooster, a loving sister, and a father's carpenter's shop into the life of the boy Jesus. Blackstone attempts to fill in some of the gaps in the story of Jesus by sharing his barnyard memories with an application to the teaching of the adult Jesus. Can one see insights into what Jesus experienced in the lessons, parables, and teachings of his adult ministry?

Stephen W. Haycox Alaska


Alaska has not evolved in a vacuum. It has been part of larger stories: the movement of Native peoples and their contact and accommodation to Western culture, the spread of European political economy to the New World, and the expansion of American capitalism and culture.Alaska, an American Colony focuses on Russian America and American Alaska, bringing the story of Alaska up to the present and exploring the continuing impact of Alaska Native claims settlements, the trans-Alaska pipeline, and the Alaska Lands Act. In contrast to the stereotype of Alaska as a place where rugged individualists triumph over the harsh environment, distinguished historian Stephen Haycox offers a less romantic, more complex history that emphasizes the broader national and international contexts of Alaska�s past and the similarities between Alaska and the American West. Covering cultural, political, economic, and environmental history, the book also includes an overview of the region�s geography and the anthropology of Alaska�s Native peoples.Throughout Alaska, an American Colony, Haycox stresses the continuing involvement of Alaska Natives in the state�s economic, political, and social life and development. He also explores the power of myth in historical representations of Alaska and the controlling influence of national perceptions of the region.

John Muir THE ALASKA ROUTE (Illustrated Edition)


Well known naturalist and environmentalist, John Muir made four trips to Alaska as far as Unalaska, Alaska and Barrow, Alaska. He first traveled to Alaska in 1879 and was the first Euro-American to explore Glacier Bay. Muir Glacier was later named after him. He returned for further explorations in Southeast Alaska in 1880, and in 1881 was with the party that landed on Wrangel Island on the USS Corwin and claimed that island for the United States. He documented this experience in journal entries and newspaper articles—later compiled and edited into his book The Cruise of the Corwin. Travels in Alaska and Stickeen are also Muir's books about his doings and adventures in Alaska.

Barry Blackstone Homestead Homilies


Relive through reminiscing and remembering, a Maine pastor's recollections of boyhood experiences that turned into a minister's messages in old age. After five decades (Barry's first message was preached in 1966), travel back in time with a lifelong Maineaic to his home place, the Blackstone homestead of Perham, Maine. What sparked these homilies was his inheritance of seven acres of the family farm, homesteaded in 1861, and the receiving of his grandparent's house built in 1924 at the death of his Uncle Paul. You will probably come to the same conclusion as this coastal Maine pastor–that his seminary training began long before he attended a Bible school in South Carolina in the early 1970s. Flash back with him to the 1950s and 1960s when spiritual lessons were everywhere on his rural potato and dairy farm. Pastor Blackstone didn't know it then, but realizes now that he was surrounded by family Bible teachers and friendly Biblical instructors that eventually would inspire this series of sermons. Homestead Homilies is a collection of scriptural observations inspired by a dog named Rover, an uncle named Read, a moonlit night, a barnyard hedge, a day plowing, a grandmother's helpful hand, a bee hive, a simple prayer, a sparrow's song, and many more simple events in a past age where homilies were being preached and now eventually heard. It is the author's prayer that these simple sermons will provoke the reader to remember long lost messages from their distant past.

Olaus J. Murie Journeys to the Far North


Olaus J. Murie took his first field trip as a biologist to the Hudson Bay region in 1914, observing the land and the wildlife, and learning the ways of the native people of the North. Later expeditions took him to Labrador and many part of Alaska, a land he came to know well and love deeply. What Murie experienced on these travels was recorded in the sketchbooks and journal that he always carried with him. Along with his fascinating collection of photographs, they form the basis for a narrative that combines a scientist’s eye for detail and a naturalist’s reverence for wilderness. Whether dogsledding, shooting rapids in a canoe, or dancing with Aleut Eskimos, Murie had a passion for discovery and conservation that enlivens every page of JOURNEYS TO THE FAR NORTH.

George MacDonald At the Back of the North Wind


“At the Back of the North Wind” is a classic children’s story first serialized in England in 1868 and published into a book in 1871 by the Scottish author George MacDonald. This enchanting fairy tale follows Diamond, a sweet, innocent, and joyful young stable boy in Victorian London who goes on adventures with the majestic North Wind. The North Wind is personified as a lovely and mysterious woman, both severe and kind, who teaches young Diamond about herself on their journeys. The perceptive Diamond is caught up by this powerful entity on her nightly adventures, and the kind child acts as the perfect character for the author to highlight social injustice, explore the place of death in the lives of human beings, and acknowledge the deep need all humans have for love and forgiveness. While the North Wind sometimes brings death and destruction to the human world, good things always follow and balance is brought to the world. Engaging and filled with exciting adventures, “At the Back of the North Wind” tackles difficult and complicated issues in a language accessible to all ages. MacDonald poignantly addresses questions and fears that all humankind must face in this beautiful and insightful landmark of children's literature. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

Группа авторов An Alaska Anthology


Alaska, with its Indian, Eskimo, and Aleut heritage, its century of Russian colonization, its peoples� formidable struggles to wrest a living (or a fortune) from the North�s isolated and harsh environment, and its relatively recent achievement of statehood, has long captured the popular imagination. In An Alaska Anthology, twenty-five contemporary scholars explore the region�s pivotal events, significant themes, and major players, Native, Russian, Canadian, and American. The essays chosen for this anthology represent the very best writing on Alaska, giving great depth to our understanding and appreciation of its history from the days of Russian-American Company domination to the more recent threat of nuclear testing by the Atomic Energy Commission and the influence of oil money on inexperienced politicians. Readers may be familiar with an earlier anthology, Interpreting Alaska�s History, from which the present volume evolved to accommodate an explosion of research in the past decade. While a number of the original pieces were found to be irreplaceable, more than half of the essays are new. The result is a fresh perspective on the subject and an invaluable resource for students, teachers, and scholars.
