WHEN SCHOOL BULLYING became more than he could bear, one small first-grader asked his Heavenly Father if he could return home to heaven. Instead, he was shown a miraculous vision of life beyond the veil and the promised blessings awaiting him. In Remember, Russell Ricks tells the story of his spiritual vision and how that event shaped his life, providing comfort during later challenges. Russell’s fascinating account will remind you that no matter how bleak life seems, our Savior will always be there for us.
“Russell Ricks has learned that the veil separating this temporal world from heaven and those who reside there is thinner than most people realize.” —Lee Nelson, author of Beyond the Veil “Apart from being a highly spiritual book, Remember is also a very personal account. This book is really unique, and it deserves to be widely read.” —Titus Rivas, coauthor of The Self Does Not Die: Verified Paranormal Phenomena from Near-Death Experiences

Why are so many people fascinated by treasure? Is it purely a desire for wealth, or is it also the romantic appeal of tales of lost ancient artifacts? It is certainly true that the stories behind the loss and recovery of a number of ancient treasures read like edge-of-the-seat fiction, somewhere between Indiana Jones and James Bond. In Ancient Treasures, you will read fascinating stories of lost hoards, looted archaeological artifacts, and sunken treasures, including: * The Sevso Treasure, a hoard of large silver vessels from the late Roman Empire--estimated to be worth $200 million--looted in the 1970s and sold on the black market. * The Amber Room, a complete chamber decoration of amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors, stolen by the Nazis in 1941 and brought to the castle at Konigsberg in Russia, from which it disappeared. * The fabulous wealth of Roman and Viking hoards buried in the ground for safekeeping, only to be unearthed centuries later by humble metal detectorists. * The wrecks of the Spanish Treasure Fleets, whose New World plunder has been the target of elaborate salvage attempts by modern treasure hunters.

The fascinating story of a lost city and an unprecedented American civilization While Mayan and Aztec civilizations are widely known and documented, relatively few people are familiar with the largest prehistoric Native American city north of Mexico-a site that expert Timothy Pauketat brings vividly to life in this groundbreaking book. Almost a thousand years ago, a city flourished along the Mississippi River near what is now St. Louis. Built around a sprawling central plaza and known as Cahokia, the site has drawn the attention of generations of archaeologists, whose work produced evidence of complex celestial timepieces, feasts big enough to feed thousands, and disturbing signs of human sacrifice. Drawing on these fascinating finds, Cahokia presents a lively and astonishing narrative of prehistoric America.
