Shtf Proof Your House: 15 Amazing Lessons on How to Protect Your House From Earthquakes: Lynn Bonne
Civil forfeiture: the government´s ability to seize, keep, and sell any property of any person they believe is involved in a crime...even if that person is innocent. All it takes is for an officer of the law to ´´think´´ the items were obtained through criminal means. The person is presumed guilty and must prove innocence to get back what was taken and the government doesn´t have to provide legal counsel. What if this law is just another way for the US government to supplement their income while destroying every innocent person they deem a threat? What would you do, and how far would you go to protect yourself and your family? Joshua Anderson is the owner of a small logging business in rural Idaho, with over a million dollars in assets, and when the Forestry Service begins making bogus accusations, Joshua knows that it is only a matter of time before his country takes everything from him, including his life. But the government has no idea that Joshua will never back down setting off the Bonner Incident. It is time to take a stand, and the only question left: whose side are you on? Thomas Watson finishes the story started with his good friend Michael Rider after he passed from an accident. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric A. Shelman.

In her extraordinary novels Into the Wilderness and Dawn on a Distant Shore, award-winning writer Sara Donati deftly captured the vast, untamed wilderness of late-18th-century New York and the trials and triumphs of the Bonner family. Now Donati takes on a new and often overlooked chapter in our nation´s past - and in the life of the spirited Bonners - as their oldest daughter, the brave and beautiful Hannah, comes of age with a challenge that will change her forever. Masterfully told, this passionate story is a moving tribute to a resilient, adventurous family and a people poised at the brink of a new century. It is the spring of 1802, and the village of Paradise is still reeling from the typhoid epidemic of the previous summer. Elizabeth and Nathaniel Bonner have lost their two-year-old son, Hannah´s half brother Robbie, but they struggle on as always: the men in the forests, the twins Lily and Daniel in Elizabeth´s school, and Hannah as a doctor in training, apprenticed to Richard Todd. Hannah is descended from healers on both sides - one Scots grandmother and one Mohawk - and her reputation as a skilled healer in her own right is growing. After a long night spent attending to a birth, Elizabeth and Hannah encounter an escaped slave hiding on the mountain. She calls herself Selah Voyager, and she is looking for Curiosity Freeman - a former slave herself, one of the village´s wisest women and Elizabeth´s closest friend. The Bonners take Selah, desperately ill, to Lake in the Clouds to care for her, and with that simple act they are drawn into the secret life that Curiosity and Galileo Freeman and their grown children have been leading for almost 10 years. The Bonners will do what they must to protect the Freemans, just as Hannah will protect her patient, who presents more than one kind of challenge. For a bounty hunter is afoot - Hannah´s childhood friend and first love, Liam Kirby. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Reading.

Longlisted for the 2016 National Book Award for Young People´s Literature. Anna-Marie McLemore´s debut novel, The Weight of Feathers, was greeted with rave reviews, a YALSA Morris Award nomination, and spots on multiple ´´best YA novels´´ lists. Now McLemore delivers a second stunning and utterly romantic novel, again tinged with magic. To everyone who knows them, best friends Miel and Sam are as strange as they are inseparable. Roses grow out of Miel´s wrist, and rumors say that she spilled out of a water tower when she was five. Sam is known for the moons he paints and hangs in the trees and for how little anyone knows about his life before he and his mother moved to town. But as odd as everyone considers Miel and Sam, even they stay away from the Bonner girls, four beautiful sisters rumored to be witches. Now they want the roses that grow from Miel´s skin, convinced that their scent can make anyone fall in love. And they´re willing to use every secret Miel has fought to protect to make sure she gives them up. Atmospheric, dynamic, and packed with gorgeous prose, When the Moon Was Ours is another winner from this talented author. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Raviv Ullman, Bailey Carr.

In the last half of 2008, the Empire of Debt received the margin call from Hell. Now, all of its citizens are asked to pay up as the U.S. economy stumbles down a dangerous path of financial turmoil. What exactly went wrong? When things are good, people tend to believe the most outrageous things - that the financial sector could get rich by lending money to people who couldn´t pay it back, and that a whole economy could flourish by luring consumers to spend more than they could afford. These hallucinations created an immense worldwide bubble of debt and dollars. And now - with the U.S. government inflating the biggest bubble in public debt the world has ever seen - a financial whirlpool has formed and threatens to drag the entire country down the drain. In The New Empire of Debt, the internationally acclaimed author team of William Bonner and Addison Wiggin return to reveal how the epic financial bubble that is plaguing the United States will soon bring an end to this once great empire. They offer a frightening look at the United States´ precarious position and discuss how government control of the economy and financial system - combined with unfettered deficit spending and gluttonous consumption - has ravaged the business environment, devastated consumer confidence, and pushed the global economy to the brink. They warn of the dangers that lie ahead and offer practical advice to protect your financial well-being as the American empire collapses upon itself. You´ll discover that you don´t have to tie your own fate to the inevitable destruction of America´s system of imperial finance. Instead you can take some simple steps to weather the crisis. Bonner and Wiggin have been studying the financial landscape for more than 20 years. Now, they not only show you how we got into this mess, but how to get yourself out of it. 1. Language: English.

Human civilization didn´t just fall. It was pushed. The Krakau came to Earth in the year 2104. By 2105, humanity had been reduced to shambling, feral monsters. In the Krakau´s defense, it was an accident, and a century later, they did come back and try to fix us. Sort of. It´s been four months since Marion ´´Mops´´ Adamopoulos learned the truth of that accident. Four months since she and her team of hygiene and sanitation specialists stole the EMCS Pufferfish and stopped a bioterrorism attack against the Krakau homeworld. Four months since she set out to find proof of what really happened on Earth all those years ago. Between trying to protect their secrets and fighting the xenocidal Prodryans, who´ve been escalating their war against everyone who isn´t Prodryan, the Krakau have their tentacles full. Mops´ mission changes when she learns of a secret Krakau laboratory on Earth. A small group under command of Fleet Admiral Belle-Bonne Sage is working to create a new weapon, one that could bring victory over the Prodryans ? or drown the galaxy in chaos. To discover the truth, Mops and her rogue cleaning crew will have to do the one thing she fears most: return to Earth, a world overrun by feral apes, wild dogs, savage humans, and worse. (After all, the planet hasn´t been cleaned in a century and a half!) What Mops finds in the filthy ruins of humanity could change everything, assuming she survives long enough to share it. Perhaps humanity isn´t as dead as the galaxy thought.
The Sunday Times best seller. Sammy Woodhouse was just 14 when she met Arshid Hussain. Ten years older, he promised to take care of her. Sammy thought she was in love, but in reality she was being groomed by a ringleader of Britain´s most notorious child sex ring. Just a Child tells the heartbreaking story of how a young girl from Rotherham was abused by her drug-dealing ´boyfriend´, eventually giving birth to his baby, right under the nose of the very authorities who were meant to protect her. When reality dawned and Sammy realised she was one of countless vulnerable child victims - many of whom were trafficked around the north of England - she took it upon herself to blow the whistle and save others from a similar fate. Thanks to Sammy´s bravery, the gang was fully exposed, as well as the authorities that did little to help her. Her shocking account of how these events came to pass will enrage and sadden, but, above all, it will offer hope and show why this must never happen again. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katy Sobey.
