Mary Fields aka Stagecoach Mary

This is the story of Mary Fields, ‘Stagecoach Mary', who got her nickname at the turn of the 20th Century.  She earned this nickname by working for the, ‘United States Postal System' delivering the United States Mail through adverse conditions that would have discouraged the most hardened frontiersmen of that period.  All by herself, she never missed a day for 8 years, carrying the U. S. Mail and other important documents that helped settle the wild open territory of central west Montana.  Stagecoach Mary had no fear of man, nor beast, and this sometimes got her into trouble.  Stagecoach Mary delivered the mail regardless of the heat of the day, cold of night, wind, rain, sleet, snow, blizzards, Indians and Outlaws.

Stagecoach Mary was 6 feet tall, and weighed over 200 pounds, and even with ‘those' extraordinary extremes, there were two more facts that made ‘her' history.  Stagecoach Mary was the second woman in ‘history' to carry the U. S. Mail, however, even that was a matter of simplicity, for a fact, she was a Negro Woman, and the only ‘Negro', for hundreds and hundreds of miles when she first arrived in Montana.

This feature story will cover Stagecoach Mary's colorful life, from the plantation where she was born a slave in 1832, to the famous Steamboat race between the “Robert E. Lee” and the “Natchez” on the Mississippi River, to her death in Cascade, Montana, 1914.

Daniel Smith
A household name for his role in the founding of ubiquitous computer software company Microsoft, Bill Gates is one of the world's great businessmen. Brought up to compete rigorously in all areas of his life, he dropped out of Harvard in 1975 to follow his dream of starting his own firm with friend Paul Allen. Together, they formed 'Micro-Soft', and set about coding their way to the top.
But developing software language was just the beginning of a journey that, for Gates, would eventually see him become the wealthiest man in the world. Initially only writing programs for other businesses such as IBM, in 1985 Microsoft launched their first version of Windows, the operating system that has dominated personal computing ever since. His hands-on attitude saw him constantly pick holes in executives' strategies until he was convinced they were watertight, an indomitable attitude that cemented Microsoft's place as the world's leading personal computer software company.
How to Think Like Bill Gates reveals the key motivations, decisions and philosophies that made Gates a name synonymous with success. Studying how he honed his business acumen, how he faced down all competitors, overcame adversity and stood strong in the face of overwhelming odds, with quotes and passages by and about the man, you too can learn to think like Bill Gates.

The Adventures of Anuk: The First leap
5 Stars - Congratulations on your 5-star review! Reviewed By Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite In The Adventures of Anuk by Suzanne Mondoux, Anuk has spent a happy childhood in the Inn with her guardians, Julea and Lucca. On her sixteenth birthday, she discovers that she has to return to her place of birth, Roese Island. Anuk is not pleased, but she is told it is her destiny that, as an Assisi Human, she must return to maintain harmony between the animal kingdom and human beings. Anuk begins the treacherous journey along with Aye, Eagle Owl, and Kinkajou. They have to travel through many beautiful places and many which are not what they seem. Many lands have been destroyed and they are no longer as beautiful as they once were. Along the way she meets numerous creatures, including The Bogeyman, who impart to Anuk their stories and words of wisdom as she continues her journey home. Anuk has to find the courage to face her deepest fears to make it back to Roese Island. But what will face her when and if she arrives? The Adventures of Anuk by Suzanne Mondoux is a truly magical adventure story. The backstory of each character is so detailed, I felt I had been transported far away into a magical land. The whole story was filled with the most enchanting descriptions of places and creatures so that I could actually visualize them. Children will absolutely adore this story because it is filled with tension, emotion, and suspense. I have to add a few pieces from the book, which I believe is the message behind the book. "You create! You decide! If the certainty of fear befalls you it is certain that you will never achieve the wholeness, the full parts of a whole life!” The story also reminds us that all humans have the choice to decide what happens to the earth, and the decisions humans make will affect so many innocent creatures and their habitats. As the story tells us, humans were not created to rule the world but to be a part of it and live in harmony with everyone else. I thought the line by Anuk, ‘My faults are also my lessons', was a perfect message to the reader. A must-read for children and older
