Miracle Hunt

ISBN: 1977718035
Release Date: 2018-01-25
Genre:

It was a cold, crisp November morning when three outdoorsmen ventured to the base of Arizona's tallest mountain range for the last day of their elk hunt. Like previous hunts, they spotted movement among the trees and took their separate positions. In the excitement and confusion of a fast-traveling herd, Brandon spotted a bull through the crosshairs of his scope, tracking it briefly before pulling the trigger. Instead of dropping the bull he watched his brother, Preston, stagger down the hill toward him with a bullet buried in his torso. "Prepare for the worst" became the refrain. For an agonizing month, while Preston fought for his life, his family fought their own battle with grief and fear. Yet in spite of tragedy, the true power of faith preserved. In this gripping retelling of events, Kimberly shares the family's inspiring recollections and how this accident has strengthened their bond with one another and with God. From supporting Preston in his challenging recovery to consoling Brandon over his guilt, Kimberly personally reflects on the love and profound prayer that divinely guided her and everyone in Preston's support chain to find light in the darkness. Miracles are rare, but with faith, they're real.

Haiti s Influence on Antebellum America

Author: Alfred N. Hunt
Publisher: LSU Press
ISBN: 0807131970
Release Date: 2006-08-01
Genre: History

The Haitian Revolution began in 1791 as a slave revolt on the French colonial island of Saint Domingue and ended thirteen years later with the founding of an independent black republic. Waves of French West Indians -- slaves, white colonists, and free blacks -- fled the upheaval and flooded southern U.S. ports -- most notably New Orleans -- bringing with them everything from French opera to voodoo. Alfred N. Hunt discusses the ways these immigrants affected southern agriculture, architecture, language, politics, medicine, religion, and the arts. He also considers how the events in Haiti influenced the American slavery-emancipation debate and spurred developments in black militancy and Pan-Africanism in the United States. By effecting the development of racial ideology in antebellum America, Hunt concludes, the Haitian Revolution was a major contributing factor to the attitudes that led to the Civil War.
