Download The Ice Soldier books, While the eyes of the world are focused upon attempts to scale Mount Everest, two young men - once members of the world's climbing elite, subsequently forced into premature retirement after the failure of a secret military operation in the Alps during World War II - have become outcasts of mountaineering society. Until, that is, a peculiar and dangerous request is made of them, drawing them back to the mountains on an exploit that will prove treacherous in more ways than one, as they confront not only the pitiless cruelty of nature but also the ghosts of their former selves.

The Ice Beneath You

by Christian Bauman, The Ice Beneath You Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Ice Beneath You books, Just as The Things They Carried and Catch-22 spoke to their generations with truth and dark humor, this brilliant first novel defines the experience of war for its era. Benjamin Jones, twenty-three, discharged after an army tour in Somalia, heads cross-country on a Greyhound, seeking refuge on the West Coast. He has left behind his best friend, Trevor, and Liz Ross, a female soldier with whom Jones has fallen in love. But Jones has also left behind a tragedy -- a horrible, split-second action made in Somalia -- that Trevor, Jones, and the army have implicitly agreed to forget. Alone on the streets of San Francisco, and then north on the Washington coast, Jones finds that an uneducated ex-soldier is qualified only as a peep show fantasy object or as a hired hand to a bottom-feeding smuggler and pornographer. Recurring visions of his life as a soldier gradually reveal the full truth -- and agony -- of his experience, and a reunion with Liz and a violent confrontation with Trevor bring the young soldier's journey to a wrenching conclusion -- but one not without hope. At equal turns tense, brutal, and poetic, The Ice Beneath You is a soldier's story for a time when there weren't supposed to be any more soldiers' stories.

Riding The Ice Wind

by Alastair Vere Nicoll, Riding The Ice Wind Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Riding The Ice Wind books, Leaving the security of friends, work, and a wife, Alastair Vere Nicoll joined a team of young men to harness the katabatic winds and haul and kite-surf across Antarctica: the coldest, windiest, most violent continent on earth. Not since Shackleton nearly perished attempting the same thing in his Endurance expedition had such a crossing been attempted. This is the story not only of the first West-to-East traverse of the continent of Antarctica, but of the crossing of two phases in the author’s life—from youth into manhood, fantasy into reality. It is also the story of a race against time, as he fought to get home for the birth of his first child. As Alastair battled through the freezing wastes, exploring the earth’s wildest continent and his deepest self, he was haunted by the ghosts of past explorers and by the question of what it is to be a “modern man.”

Soldier Of The Leaf

by Marvin E. Brown, Soldier Of The Leaf Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Soldier Of The Leaf books, The Soldier of the Leaf chronicles the life of Marvin Brown from early childhood through his career with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. His impressions as a child of the south in the mid 1940s and 1950s provide glimpses of the struggles of poor and middle class blacks in Cairo and Savannah, Georgia. At age 14 he and two friends hitchhiked from Savannah, Georgia to New York City. His vivid and dramatic account of this dangerous journey is both hilarious and informative. His naivety, good luck and strength of character helped him meet and form a lasting bond with a family that embraced him as their own. He struggles to find the right job in New York City and by happenstance he gets a job as a skate guard with the Wollman Rink in Central Park, and thats when his lifes story really begins. We follow Marvin through learning the ropes as a skate guard, becoming a supervisor and then a principal supervisor. He shares 20 years of rich stories about the staff, processing the ice, faulty equipment, New York City bureaucrats and the patrons of the rink. He also takes us on an excursion to Sweden and Finland and on his return to New York he is able to parlay his experience and great work ethic into a senior position, Service and Maintenance Supervisor for 75 swimming pools in New York City. He recounts the trials and tribulations in managing incompetent staff, structural problems with filter plants and pools and handling dangerous chemicals. Marvin provides an interesting and humorous journey into the career of an exceptional New York City civil servant.
