I have started reading a series of books from a historian and archaeologist husband and wife team W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear. It is the North America's Forgotten Past Series. The first of 18 books is People of the Wolf.
From the back cover:
In the dawn of history, a valiant people forged a path from the old world into a new one through what is now Alaska and the Canadian Norhtwest Territories. Led by a dreamer who followed the spirit of the wolf, a handful of courageous men and women dared to cross the frozen wastes to find an un touched, unspoiled continent.
The authors give you a sense of what it would be like to live in those hard times struggling to save your family, your tribe from starvation and the end of their ways. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series People of the Fire.
My book pick of the Week: People of the Wolf
Authors: W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'neal Gear
Speaking of spies…. I’ve been on a James Bond binge. Movie wise that is. I’m a long time fine of the Bond films… and the men who played them. Sean Connery and Daniel Craig are my top two favorites, followed by Pierce Brosnan, then Timothy Dalton. Roger Moore never really did it for me as Bond but I do like some of his Bond films. For instance, the other night I watched For Your Eyes Only. I hadn’t seen it in years. I really enjoyed it, although not near as much as the film I watched last night…
My Movie Pick of the Week: The Living Daylights (1987)
From IMDB: James Bond is living on the edge to stop an evil arms dealer from starting another world war. Bond crosses all seven continents in order to stop the evil Whitaker and General Koskov.
There are a lot of exciting action sequences in this film, as well as fun moments with Q and his cool spy gadget inventions, but the thing I like most is the chemistry between Bond and the heroine of this flick, Kara. She’s a sweet, vibrant cellist and Bond is completely smitten with her. The way he looks at her makes me weak in the knees. And his tendency to protect her is dang sexy, too. As a fan of romantic adventure, The Living Daylights is a double-oh-swell!
