Nebador Book Nine : A Cry for Help: (Global Edition)
NEBADOR - the incredible journey of five young adults from poverty and oppression to respected citizenship in the wide universe ... A child is born with a lifetime of memories and knowledge. She knows she has an important purpose, and that her world will perish without her help, but has no idea how to get them to listen. She decides to trust the only part of her society that has shown some ability to deal with reality, but fears they will abandon her before the task is complete. - The crew of the Manessa Kwi, along with Ashley's team of education specialists, gets the easy part: presiding over a critical planetary transition that was paid for with blood, sweat, and tears by others long before. - These stories are filled with wit-sharpening and skill-honing challenges - mental, emotional, and spiritual - for both the characters and the reader. It is truly a grand adventure in which the characters come to understand a beloved saying of the Nebador Transport Service: Personal power is the ability to stand on your own two feet, with a smile on your face, in the middle of a universe that contains a million ways to crush you. - This is the PAPERBACK GLOBAL edition in 10-point type.

Colby now lives and writes deep in a forest of the Pacific Northwest. - He has studied many subjects, formally and informally, including psychology, philosophy, education, and performing arts, but remains a generalist.

He finds fascinating those few individuals who can transcend the limits of our common human nature and the dictates of our cultures. - In his spare time, he flies helicopters and airplanes.
