To Fred Archer, born in the village of Ashton-under-Hill in 1915 and growing up in the 1920s, nothing seemed to change except the seasons. This was the age of paraffin lamps, earth closets, and the last train from Evesham at 7 o’clock in the evening. The village was a self-sufficient community with its own hierarchy, strong Church and Chapel, fierce politics, and home-made entertainment. But change was coming, and the motor car, wireless, telephone, and the service bus to Evesham cinema meant that village life would be changed forever. Fred Archer’s anecdotes bring to life the lost village of his childhood, the eccentrics and the annual events relished by all: sprout-picking championships, village fetes, and racing down the slope of Holcomb Nap on sledges made from old cider barrels. 1.

The Missing Ring is more than a football book. It is both a story of a changing era and of an extraordinary team on a championship quest.Very few institutions in American sports can match the enduring excellence of the University of Alabama football program. Across a wide swath of the last century, the tradition-rich Crimson Tide has claimed twelve national championships, captured 25 conference titles, finished 34 times among the country's top ten, and played in 53 bowl games.Especially dominant during the era of the legendary Paul "Bear" Bryant, the larger-than-life figure who towered over the landscape like no man before or since, Alabama entered the 1966 season with the chance to become the first college football team to win three consecutive national championships. Every aspect of Bryant's grueling system was geared around competing for the big prize each and every year, and in 1966 the idea of the threepeat tantalized the players, pushing them toward greatness. Driven by Bryant's enthusiasm, dedication, and perseverance, players were made to believe in their team and themselves. Led by the electrifying force of quarterback Kenny "Snake" Stabler and one of the most punishing defenses in the storied annals of the Southeastern Conference, the Crimson Tide cruised to a magical season, finishing as the nation's only undefeated, untied team. But something happened on the way to the history books.The Missing Ring is the story of the one that got away, the one that haunts Alabama fans still, and native Alabamian Keith Dunnavant takes readers deep inside the Crimson Tide program during a more innocent time, before widespread telecasting, before scholarship limitations, before end-zone dances. Meticulously revealing the strategies, tactics, and personal dramas that bring the overachieving boys of 1966 to life, Dunnavant's insightful, anecdotally rich narrative shows how Bryant molded a diverse group of young men into a powerful 1.

Once in a lifetime a person may find the perfect dog, but to have two perfect dogs in a lifetime is practically unheard of. Big Paws, Bigger Heart presents a story of that improbable situation as told by Finley, a Belgian Tervuren dog who came into the life of his adopted dad, Jim Loveless, to fill the enormous void left behind by the loss of Jim's first dog, Brooks. Finley goes back in time to tell the legend of Brooks. He shares the heartwarming and often humorous tales of how Brooks shaped the lives of not only his owner but of a community by proving faithfulness meant more than championships. Part one of this true and inspiring story follows Brooks from his early days of fitting in with his newly adopted family until his forced retirement from the agility competition he and Jim so dearly loved due to bad hips. With the loss of Brooks, Jim couldn't imagine that the void left behind could ever be filled. The sequel, however, recalls how Finley came along, picking up where Brooks left off. He exceeded Jim's wildest expectations with his loyalty and unbelievable sense of humor. Written from a dog's perspective, Big Paws, Bigger Heart explores the love that dogs can bring into our lives and shows how two dogs changed one man's life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: A. T.
