Just finished Arthur C. Clarke's Space Odyssey series.
First book was great, the second was good. Third and fourth...........pretty mediocre.

Not sure what's next. Asimov's Foundation series or Cormac McCarthy's Border trilogy.

The Vikings - Johannes Brondsted

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

I've just started with Pioneer Children on the Journey West.

From early on in the book:

"The stories of the youngsters on the emigrant trials are a remarkable testimony to the resiliency of the human spirit, for the hardships they encountered were unusual...As one reads their narratives, one cannot help but be deeply impressed by the children's hardiness. Their eye-witness accounts tell of enduring qualities that helped them overcome the odds: competence and self-reliance, curiosity and determination, enthusiasm and cheerfulness, concern for the needs of others, and a sense of responsibility far beyond their years. Above all, they shared a faith that things would work out well for them in the end- a faith that sustained them and gave meaning to their lives."
