A novella following New York cat burglar Nathaniel Trillion on the run for a crime he did commit, but in retrospect shouldn't have. Having spent the last six months hiding in a no-name backwater town in Middle America he discovers that his partner Gene has run up considerable gambling debt to a criminal gang calling themselves the Circus. To clear the debt Trillion reluctantly agrees to use his skills for one job for the Circus: steal a mysterious case that is being held by the Police Force. His fear isn't of the psychopaths in the Circus but of word getting back to Manhattan about the local cat burglar who just turned up, and when Gene's run of bad luck spills into their work their problems are only getting worse.
A Waterfall of Blessings is an inspiring devotional filled with the poetic rhythm of life's issues, the life of God's Word and the insight of ordinary, everyday pressing topics concerning everyday people.
What happens when you research the Michigan fur trade on Halloween? Katie, Nick, Gary, Helena, and the mysterious new kid, Zach, are about to find out.
Author Lynne Smyles, two-time Lakeview Elementary School teacher of the year, breathes life into history in her Michigan History Nightmares series. She does it again with The Michigan Fur Trade...A Hare Raising Adventure.
Halloween dawns with the promise of an exciting day. Looking forward to the afternoon's Halloween festivities, Katie's group is anxious to get through their morning research assignment on the Michigan fur trade and start the celebration. Little do they know that their computers have more tricks than treats in store for them.
This time the young historians find themselves transported back in time to the seventeenth century where they are captured by pirates, attacked by a bear, and shot through the rapids with voyageurs while learning first-hand about the fur trade in Michigan. Even more disturbing is the fact that they are no longer in possession of the Michigan pen. Meanwhile, Katie and her friends can't help but wonder: Will they ever make it home without the Michigan pen?
