Brown July 2021 List Price: $17.95 PB 148 pages, full color text When Ian W. Brown retired in June of 2020, the Covid 19 pandemic was running rampant. The isolation that resulted from abrupt social distancing provided him with ample time to contemplate a life of doing archaeology in an academic setting, and how this came to pass. In sixteen essays he muses upon growing up in the late 20th century, touching upon subjects as wide ranging as "Home (A Short Story)," "Early Work," "Confessions of a Book Buyer," "Academia (I never Planned to be a College Professor)," "Games and Sports, a Preparation for Life)," "Life's Incidentals: The Drive-In Theater, The Circus, and the Fair," "The Point of Dancing," "What Do I Believe?" and many more, ending with his personal assessment of "2020-The Year of the Pandemic." borgopublishing.com amazon.com Flashes of Life True Tales of the Extraordinary Ordinary Pamela S. Wight May 2021 List Price: $14.95 PB 140 pages, b/w text Wow! Life goes by in a flash. Philosophers and mystics ponder the mystery of these flashes. Pamela Wight writes about life flashes in her short stories that include family and friends, love and life’s challenges. Wight’s “Flash Memoir” promotes the belief that we all share sparks of the extraordinary that occur in our everyday life. Each short story is true and brings a smile of recognition to her readers: that life transports and enthralls us in all its confusing, amusing, challenging, and astonishing ways. Each story is light-hearted and short – like a flash – but be prepared for a page-turner that keeps you in your seat, smiling. borgo publishing.com epub book amazon.com Behind Glass in Russia, 1992 An Archaeologist's Journal Ian W. Brown Fall 2020 List Price: $20.00 PB 116 pages, full color text In September of 1992, less than a year after the collapse of the Soviet Union, an archaeological delegation sponsored by People to People International ventured into Russia. The author maintained a detail journal of their activities as they explored regions stretching from St. Petersburg to Novgorod and into the steppes and the Northern Caucasus Mountains. This was an important time of transition for Russia, when things were not quite what they were like under the previous Soviet regime and certainly not at all like what exists two decades into the new millennium. borgopublishing.com ernest&hadleybooks.com amazon.com The Quiet Heart A Foundational Guide to Inner Healing and Deliverance Susan Bowman March 1, 2020 List Price: $12.95 PB 148 pages Proverbs 4:23 warns us to guard the heart with all diligence because the springs of life flow from it. But what is this heart the Bible speaks of? How can it be guarded? What are springs of life? Recent developments in the fields of neurocardiology and psychology are supplying answers to these questions. And, as unlikely as it may seem, the latest scientific developments support what the Bible has long proclaimed—that whatever is believed within the human heart determines the course of a person’s life. Weaving together science, psychology and scripture, The Quiet Heart , explains how God designed the human heart and how that design has been hijacked as a result of the fall. The author, a seasoned prayer minister, offers field-tested tools and strategies to help you discover what is hidden in your heart. It teaches how to recover your heart and train it to align with God’s truth so that you may enjoy a healthy and meaningful relationship with Him. Topics include the human spirit, soul and heart; the fall and deliverance; spiritual warfare; generational considerations; learning to hear from God and more. This gentle and practical guide to inner healing and deliverance offers step-by-step instructions along with written prayers. Thoughtful research, combined with years of experience, makes The Quiet Heart a must read for those seeking peace with God, themselves and others.

The story of an unlikely journey from a poverty-stricken upbringing in the Mississippi backwoods to a career in academic archaeology.

Creek fishing not being an especially lucrative enterprise, he followed a stint in the military with a succession of blue-collar jobs, most of which included manual labor, a strong inducement to pursue a college education. Evan obtained a B.A. degree in Anthropology at Mississippi State University (MSU) in 1988 and a M.S. degree in Environmental Archaeology and Palaeoeconomy at the University of Sheffield, England, in 1990. Following employment as a professional archaeologist in the private sector and with the U.S. Forest Service, he earned a Ph.D. in Archaeology at Sheffield in 1999, after which he took a faculty position in Anthropology at MSU, whence he retired in 2018. Evan is author of approximately one hundred scholarly works and has written pieces for the public that have appeared in venues such as Mississippi Outdoors, Forest Perspectives, and Hobo Pancakes . His book Mississippi Archaeology Q&A (University Press of Mississippi, 2005) has received wide acclaim.
