The 50th General Depot, Quartermaster Corps, Army of the United States, was secluded to support the projected invasion of the Japanese mainland. Even as the Depot’s headquarters unit was setting up shop on Okinawa, Japan surrendered, thus ending World War II.

Feeling abandoned on a war-ravaged island with little to do except sustain themselves, the men of the administrative section set about to combat boredom as best they could.

This narrative recounts the adventures and misadventures of a squad of twelve men of diverse background and interests during the months of “exile.” Resentment festers, relationships are strained, and suppressed hopes and dreams brak through a thin crust of daily routine.

The setting of this narrative is authentic, the characters fictionalized--but barely--and the action only slightly embellished.

Susanne Slay-Westbrook $25.10

In each facet of our lives, from the most intimate to the most vast, it is fundamentally important to acknowledge and maintain respectful attitudes and behaviors, if we expect to see our children and future generations move forward successfully through this century and those to come.

Five basic principles related to the concept of respect are intertwined throughout this book. Respect is:

    • the "I-Thou" relationship, love in its highest, purest, most effective form.
    • freely given, based in positive regard.
    • seeing the best in others rather than the worst.
    • the active ingredient at the core of an individual’s being.
    • a basic, pivotal component for a functional society systems.

This new, thought provoking, book emphasizes the urgent need to recapture the art of respect in our daily lives, and gives solid tools to use to make this happen. The word “respect” is clearly applied to a variety of social spheres, beginning at the most intimate place, the self, then into relationships, the community and finally, reaching out to the larger world. In every aspect and application, the author draws on specific examples of disrespectful behavior and shows ways to move toward more positive and productive respect. A World of Respect could change your life as well as the world around you.

    Barbara Youngblood Carr's newest book of poetry and reminiscences Dreamdancing With Ancestors sparkles with lines as clear as spring rain in a Ouachita creek. . . .Carr's is the perfect recipe for those of us old enough to remember an America more rural than urban, more optimistic than ironic and for those of us young enough to believe in the magic of dreams and the promise of memories that will never end.--Ric Williams, “Litera,” The Austin Chronicle

    Open this book to different sections and you will find a treasure trove of remarkable variety—priceless old family photos and daguerreotypes with reminiscences both plainspoken and soaringly evocative . . .

Frank Dobie's, the J. Mason Brewer's and a few others. . .a master of idiom. . . Carr's book is a wholesome addition to the home library. . . Carr is a woman for all seasons. . .the keeper of dreams, the preserver of the word, the creator of a new heritage.--Marvin G. Kimbrough, Ph.D., Professor Emerita, Huston-Tillotson College

We wrote down these poems and stories that reflect a few moments of our daily living, that stream of consciousness, and our continuous quest for knowledge and growth.--Jerry Casebolt
