Download and read online Two Gold Rings and the Legend of Tall Tree in PDF and EPUB In the year 1770, twenty-year-old Jacob Harris was called before the king, who knew of his great desire to go to the New World across the ocean. In respect for the dedicated service of Jacob’s father and grandfather to the Crown, the king presented him with a land grant of ten thousand acres, boat passage, and enough gold coins to start a new life in the new land. Jacob fell to his knees upon seeing for the first time the magnificent virgin trees and giving the name of Tall Tree to the vast acreage. He spent twenty years carving out many acres to plant and acres for grazing and built a large brick house before marrying Ruth, now thirty years old, whom he first met on the boat as a shy ten-year-old. A little girl at the time, telling her mother she just met the only man she would ever consider marrying someday. Several years after their marriage, they had one son, William. Jacob—even though he purchased slaves to help him and three other white men to clear the land—never treated them as slaves, taking time to educate them to do things and think on their own. William, who later inherited the land, followed and improved on his father’s ideas in the treatment of the black people. As a young boy, he forged a bond of great friendship with another young boy at the time. A boy of the black race who, by a quirk of nature, grew to a gigantic size. A sad time in the period of the Civil War, fate brought with her a heavy hand full of tragedies to dump on the beautiful grounds of Tall Tree and its inhabitants. The many tragedies that seemed to be unfair in its great toll on the Harris family. One was to cause the disappearance of two special gold rings, to finally return home from their travels in 1945, and to try once again to bring about the happiness they were forged to do eighty-one years ago.

Download and read online Escaping the Fire in PDF and EPUB During the height of the Guatemalan civil war, Tomás Guzaro, a Mayan evangelical pastor, led more than two hundred fellow Mayas out of guerrilla-controlled Ixil territory and into the relative safety of the government army's hands. This exodus was one of the factors that caused the guerrillas to lose their grip on the Ixil, thus hastening the return of peace to the area. In Escaping the Fire, Guzaro relates the hardships common to most Mayas and the resulting unrest that opened the door to civil war. He details the Guatemalan army's atrocities while also describing the Guerrilla Army of the Poor's rise to power in Ixil country, which resulted in limited religious freedom, murdered church leaders, and threatened congregations. His story climaxes with the harrowing vision that induced him to guide his people out of their war-torn homeland. Guzaro also provides an intimate look at his spiritual pilgrimage through all three of Guatemala's main religions. The son of a Mayan priest, formerly a leader in the Catholic Church, and finally a convert to Protestantism, Guzaro, in detailing his religious life, offers insight into the widespread shift toward Protestantism in Latin America over the past four decades. Riveting and highly personal, Escaping the Fire ultimately provides a counterpoint to the usual interpretation of indigenous agency during the Guatemalan civil war by documenting the little-studied experiences of Protestants living in guerrilla-held territory.
