Western

Louis L’Amour

LAmour-westward-tideEvery young adult, and adult as well, should read many of L’Amour’s books. There are at least 100 titles to choose from, and they are all great. He has my highest recommendation. While being easy and thrilling for the reluctant reader, his stories are still laced with sound principles of character education, moral absolutes, history, and traditional values. His work is a Hallmark of Western Civilization in America—certainly the best and most representative of American character, which our public education system today either ignores or despises. He teaches you how it was to live before law and order came to the American West, with powerful themes of good and evil. Start today to embark on this memorable literary adventure!

Here in these western lands men were fighting again the age-old struggle for freedom and for civilization, which is one that always must be fought for. The weak and those unwilling to make the struggle, soon resign their liberties for the protection of powerful men or paid armies; they begin by being protected, they end by being subjected. ~ Louis L’Amour

World War II

Gerald Lund

guardianbookgeraldlundThe Guardian

These two books are marvelous illustrations of the timeless theme good vs. evil. The whole reason we are on earth is to learn to distinguish good from evil, but those distinctions are now extremely blurred in our society. These thrilling narratives are great character education, and teach the reader in a literary way how the Holy Spirit can guide us in our daily lives.

In the spirit of The Alliance, The Freedom Factor, and Leverage Point, author Gerald N. Lund blends gripping, fast-paced suspense with a timeless message for readers of all ages. He also gives marvelous insight into World War II. This is great historical education for today’s young adults, who are born long since that pivotal point in our heritage, and can add to their understanding and appreciation of the supreme sacrifices made by the heroes of that era.

DisinformationDisinformation

Eye-opening. This book reveals a history of massive deception disseminated by leaders in the Soviet Empire, as they controlled news outlets during the Cold War. Many lies parroted in the mainstream news media are straight from the socialist disinformation strategy which is not only flourishing in the world today, but steadily increasing in power. ~C.D.
