Author: Rachel Anne Ridge
The heartwarming tale of an irrepressible donkey who needed a home—and forever changed a family. Rachel Anne Ridge was at the end of her rope. The economy had crashed, taking her formerly thriving business along with it. She had been a successful artist, doing work she loved, but now she felt like a failure. How would her family pay their bills? What would the future hold? If only God would somehow let them know that everything was going to be all right . . . and then Flash the donkey showed up. If there is ever a good time to discover a wounded, frightened, bedraggled donkey standing in your driveway, this wasn’t it. The local sheriff dismissed Flash as “worthless.” But Rachel didn’t believe that, and she couldn’t turn him away. She brought Flash into her struggling family during their darkest hour—and he turned out to be the very thing they needed most. Flash is the true story of their adventures together in learning to love and trust; breaking down whatever fences stood in their way; and finding the strength, confidence, and faith to carry on. Prepare to fall in love with Flash: a quirky, unlikely hero with gigantic ears, a deafening bray, a personality as big as Texas, and a story you’ll never forget.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO if you woke up to the sound of screaming . . . in the trunk of a car . . . beside a dead cop . . . with no idea where you were . . . or why . . . or when? Imagine THE BOURNE IDENTITY meets THE FIRM. ________________________________________ TWO BLOOD-SPATTERED STRANGERS awake, locked in the trunk of a car--with a murdered cop and the smoking gun. Aside from raging headaches and no idea what's happened, they appear to have nothing in common. Troy thinks it's 2001 and he's still a combat surgeon fighting terrorists in Afghanistan. Emmy believes it's 2002 and she's still grifting a living from the streets of L.A. Are they archenemies or coconspirators? Lovers or friends? What are they doing in the Caribbean, and why is a Croatian assassin determined to kill them? The only thing they know for certain is that they'll be spending the rest of their lives in prison if the police catch them before they learn the truth.

Flash! is a cultural history of flash photography, from its mid-nineteenth beginnings to the present day. All photography requires light, but the light of flash photography is quite distinctive: artificial, sudden, shocking, intrusive, and extraordinarily bright. For the first time, flash's history is told by putting it in the context of the broad, transnational development of photographic practices. Spanning a wide range of fascinating topics, Flash! explores role that flash has played in contributing to a popular denigration, or suspicion, of the photographer, and the role of the paparazzi, how flash photography has been used to reveal social deprivation and poverty and the representation and misrepresentation of race, how flash captures ordinary everyday life and makes us look at it anew, and how it illuminates things that would otherwise be lost in darkness. Drawing on the work of professionals and amateurs, news hounds and art photographers, photographers of crime and of wildlife, and on photographic journals and manuals, photographers' memoirs and interviews, exhibition reviews, advertisements and the volume captures those moments when flash erupts into novels, poems, TV, and films. Generously illustrated throughout, Flash! brings out the central role of this medium to the history of photography, and in doing so, challenges some commonly held ideas about the nature of photography itself.
