When I look through my father’s images I see a lot of pictures of Vietnam and a lot of pictures of my father with his buddies. I don’t have a lot of memories of my father since he died when I was very young. My father didn’t die in Vietnam but, it had an impact on him with nightmares and my family said it did change him. The Vietnam Battle has always been a confusing one to understand for me. Even in school it wasn’t taught but more of a brief glimpse in the pages of history that I have been homeschooling I wish my children to understand history and this era of the Vietnam Battle that is so misunderstood by many. Several Years ago we had the Vietnam Moving Memorial Wall come in town. I took my children to it. They were young but, we talked about it. They still remember that day we visited the my children are older I can dive into more info of Vietnam. Boots on the Ground America’s Battle in Vietnam is a very sobering book of this time and a wealth of information. The book is intended ages 12 and rtridge has done her research. She paints a vivid picture of the battle and puts a face of the men and women who served our county during this time. She tells the story of how America got involved in the war. She talks about the Presidents that were in office during the Vietnam War. You obtain a view point of six soldiers whom served in various locations throughout the war. Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement, and other key figures and locations are talked about throughout the e story goes in chronological of the battle talking about the private experience with the chapters going from the home front with the political leaders and the American people. Then you are introduced to the soldiers, a nurse and their experiences. The book ends with Maya Lin the architecture of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, cluded in the book are black and white images of the happenings around Vietnam to the presidents, soldiers, protesters, and a lot of more strong imagines of e book does mention drugs, alcohol, suicide, revenge killing, and a few graphic details. The author does it tastefully and in context with the happenings of the Vietnam War. I just don’t think you cannot talk about some of these things to fully understand the war. If you have sensitive children you may not wish them to read this or you may decide to do it as a read out loud rather than having them read it by themselves.I feel that this is a strong book that gets to the heart of this complex period in our history. My 12 year old son will read this book and we will spend some time talking about it.I appreciate the authors approach as being anti bias as she states the facts and isn’t pro-war or anti-war about Vietnam and leaves you to decide your own opinion of the war.I received a copy of this product from Penguin Random House in exchange for my honest review. I was not needed to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family.

My daughter loves these books but recently complained to me that someone had been drawing on it. As mentioned by others, there are now scribbles/doodles on all the text pages. I've no idea where they came from! Also we often have problems with licence checks (with several of these books). This happens when online too, which is I suspect because we've disabled the Play Shop for her.
Please can you remove the scribbles from the pages. My daughter loves this book, but the scribbles on each page are really distracting. As she started reading now on her own, it is even worse. I'll give 5 stars, if this problem is fixed. Great, a lot of thanks for fixing it.
I bought these bags for tall dress boots, and they're just the right size. My boots are 8 mediums, and if yours are any larger, or wider than that, you'll need a bigger storage bag. There's no room to spare with the 8 e adjustable drawstring works very well, and the bags appear to be sturdy and created of amazing quality material. It's nice they're washable, too.
I travel a lot and I bought these specifically to use with my boots in luggage. These bags hold boots from touching the rest of my clothes in the suitcase. Previously, I had used trash bags or grocery bags, but these are a durable, reusable alternative. I wear size 11 wide, and they fit in the bags fine. However, they don't seem like they could keep boots much larger. At 11 1/2 you're probably OK, but once you obtain to size 12, I would be concerned about fit.
If I could give a higher rating I would. Arrived on time and used them right away. I have alllllot of shoes and keeping them in the boxes started to run out of room.I highly recommended this product, they are durable and the view window at the bottom is amazing so I don’t have to guess or label the bags of what shoes are in what bag. I am ordering again right now before they the seller +++AAA a very huge Thank you as now I’m a satisfied shoe gal.
Excellent size & nice material for boots to be stored when traveling. Recently used for tall leather boots & they were perfect! Drawstring closure.
This book was my introduction to Montaigne (dead French philosopher/essayist) - and Michael Perry (living American humorist/all-round amazing guy). I found it to be a very comfortable, enjoyable introduction to what otherwise could have been an intimidating topic. Even if you think you have no particular interest in Montaigne at the outset, I'd recommend this fun introduction to two minds surprisingly in sync with each other. Myself, I'm looking forward to reading more of each!
Thanks to Michael for giving us this book. It is rather like the time one finds out that your best friend, a parent, or even ones self is more complicated and human than seen from the outside. Once the curtain is drawn back a decision must be made...do we still like, admire, accept as we did before? In this case, the respond is yes! It has been said that autobiographical writing is selfish. However, I found this book to be a generous look into this author's life: sometimes complicated, consistently humorus, and always humane.
Montaigne (1533-1592) wrote about his life, his thoughts, happenings around him. Michael Perry follows Montaigne's comments with his own, up-to-date insights about being a human, being a man, aging, loving and enjoying life. Totally unbelievable book!
Perry is no more an expert on Montaigne or French philosophy than he is an expert on International trucks or canons. But in this, his recent memoir, he applies his masterful “poeprose” (a term I just created up for the attractive method he can write about everything from mundanity to [and yes, he goes there]), to a guy who’s been dead for more than 400 years.I’m an unabashed fan of Perry, so this review is not without bias (and not of the implicit variety). But I submit that if you like adroit storytelling about life in rural Wisconsin, you’ll too become a fan. I’ve read just about everything he’s written in the latest dozen years and each has had a direct impact on my life:“Population 485” created me a better reader (and writer).“Truck” created me a better gardener.“Coop” created me a better spouse and parent.“Visiting Tom” created me a better neighbor.“Montaigne in Barn Boots” will support me to be better on myself (and others).I could go on. I take something from each of his works, whether it’s a full length book or a short Wisconsin State Journal essay. But this one, “Montaigne in Barn Boots: An Amateur Ambles Through Philosophy,” it’s different. It’s harder. It’s truer. It’s worth it! He lets us in on a few secrets. In doing so, he invites us to look within our own yourself a favor and the audiobook ver of this. In my opinion, all of his books are best heard straight from the source. Or, do what I did and pick up both the audio and hardcover versions. You’ll also wish to the jumbo-sized package of highlighters to support obtain you through this quotable volume. Just take care not to leave it in the seat-back of an airplane when you are done marking it up.
If it is any indicator, this is my least favorite of Perry's books and it still earned five stars from me. I'm still not nearly as interested in Montaigne as I am in Michael Perry, but I loved how he created this premise work with the weaving he did. I guess my preference is still the barn boots without the Montaigne, but I really enjoyed the walk nonetheless.
The thing about Michael Perry is that he has a renaissance mind. I think he'd be the first to say he isn't a renaissance man, but his mind... from the lyrical authenticity of Population 485 through the musings on truckers, workers, music, pigs, chickens and all the other awesome work on the method to this recent book... will just think about ANYTHING. And share those thoughts in ways that enrich the outlook and sensibility of anyone who reads him. Just so grateful to the paramedic son who gave me my first Perry book, and place me on this reading journey.
Michael Perry cannot write books quick enough to suit me! He has a God-given talent for describing life in all its' glory, gloom, and heartwarming detail. This book is a departure for him, and it took me a while to obtain going on it, but I learned quite a bit along the way! And I am betting that Mr Perry had that thought in mind all along when he wrote it! It's enjoyable and funny as heck in a few places. Real Perry Literature!
As usual while reading Mr. Perry's books, I giggle and snort out loud."... I worry sometimes that she is just biding her time, gathering the evidence important to put me under professional supervision."I, too, am married to a patient soul and outpace my bride by a decade plus, it's only a matter of time before she has enough proof to create the with much of Mike's writing, I nod in agreement while reading and say, "That's me!"
For a few years now I have thought often of wanting to test living temporarily in another country. I think going to China several times placed this thought in my head. I watch House Hunters International all the time to see various parts of the globe and how living would be in those areas. This book was unbelievable and created me want Kay would do this for several countries. Panama has never been on my list to see but after reading this book I have added it. Kay's research was amazing and I appreciated all the info she added. If I ever go to Panama I will surely check out a lot of of the things she suggests. I feel I will also be more prepared for the adventure if I go having read this book. I also know now if I really do wish to live in another country some of the steps I need to do to create this happen and how to research a huge move. Thanks Kay for sharing your life with us. Amazing Book!!
