But after months of grueling travel, his father dies - then 11 days later John buries his mother. Suddenly the six young Sagers are alone - and John is the head of the family! Should he let the other pioneer families take his brothers and sisters, or should he keep the family together and head in the direction his parents originally intended - to Oregon?

One of the seven Sager siblings who were orphaned on the Oregon Trail, Matilda later survived the 1847 massacre in which her adoptive parents, the missionary Dr. Marcus Whitman and his wife, and her two brothers were killed. The attack, a pivotal event in Northwest history, led to a war of retaliation against the Cayuse Indians and the extension of federal control over the present-day states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and parts of Montana and Wyoming. In this rare volume, Matilda left her account of that tragic event in the pioneer west.

A city is hit by a sudden and strange epidemic of "white blindness", which spares no one. Authorities confine the blind to an empty mental hospital, but there social conventions quickly crumble and the struggle for survival brings out the worst in people. There is one eyewitness to this nightmare who guides seven strangers -among them a boy with no mother, a girl with dark glasses, a dog of tears - out of their prison and through the barren streets, and the procession becomes as uncanny as the surroundings are harrowing. A magnificent parable of loss and disorientation and a vivid evocation of the horrors of the 20th century, by Nobel Prize-winning author Jose Saramago, Blindness has swept the masses with its powerful portrayal of man's worst appetites and weaknesses - and man's ultimately exhilarating spirit.

Jonathan Seede is the picture of Washington, DC, respectability, an urban pioneer with a pretty wife, a new baby, and a job at the town’s most esteemed newspaper. But 10 blocks from the White House, on the notorious 14th Street strip, a war is raging over deviant behavior. And Seede is on the front lines, deep into a secret freelance project that’s taking him to places where most people would never dare to go. As he descends into an inferno of repressed urges and human frailties, Seede’s journey plays out against a brilliantly realized portrait of the nation’s capital, featuring pimps and hustlers, an accidental hooker, an honest cop, a storefront prophet/marijuana dealer, a beautiful teenage runaway, a crack-addicted music legend, an A-list gay activist, and a diminutive billionaire who is searching for the answers to life’s greatest questions in a crystal skull. The first novel from best-selling journalist Mike Sager, Deviant Behavior is a mad, vivid, and daring romp through a society in crisis, and the story of what happens when one frustrated father decides to just say yes. 1.

Great journalists, at one time or another, have all been characters in their own stories: people with personalities that shaped what they saw and reported and were touched and changed by the experiences about which they wrote, and innovators who borrowed the storytelling techniques of fiction. The Beholder's Eye showcases the very best of an increasing trend toward personal narrative: Mike Sager stalking Marlon Brando in the Tahitian jungle; J. R. Moehringer's quest to discover the true identity of an old boxer; Bill Plaschke's story about a woman with cerebral palsy who runs an obscure Los Angeles Dodgers website; Scott Anderson's story of his lifetime of covering war after war; Harrington's own tale of his interracial family's struggle to persevere; and many others. Written by reporters who were willing to reveal themselves in order to bring listeners insights that were deeper than supposedly objective third-person stories, their articles are an invaluable resource for aspiring journalists, students, and teachers of the craft of writing and any listener with an appreciation for masterful storytelling.
