This is book 3 of The DEBT: a 4-part novella series based on Cowboy, ex-soldier, Matt Stone.
Matt Stone rode into Markleeville one hot dusk, with a wind at his back that promised summer thunder. He was tall and lean, with a narrow, clean-shaven face above the collar of his oilskin duster. His eyes were a hard pale blue, like chips of ice, and his black hair was long like an Apache's and held back with a strip of leather. The coat was open, revealing a buckskin vest and the pair of silver Colts at his hips. He rode a huge, sleek black horse with a bullet scar showing in white hairs across one flank. Its name was Lucky. That horse had carried him through Gettysburg alive, and then taken him west, where he'd spent three years wandering, trying to get the echoes of battle out of his head. He managed to escape death in Gettysburg and just when he begins to believe he has something good with Anne, destiny takes a shot and sends everything spinning out of control.
Jesse and Jessica, just married and thirsting for the trip of a lifetime, leave behind their jobs and home in Canada for a 6 month motorcycle journey down the length of the Pan-American Highway to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. Despite a family intervention aimed to dissuade them from travelling through notorious Latin American countries plagued by drug cartels and bandidos, “The Jesses” set off with nothing but their motorcycles, a few pieces of luggage and each other. Battling outrageously bad roads, torrential rain, sandstorms and hurricane-force winds, their physical, mental and emotional limits are tested at every turn and they are forced to question the sanity of undertaking such a trip. Told from alternating points of view, Jesse and Jessica recount the adventures and misadventures of their travel with warmth, humor and a passion for thrill of the road. The Great Pan-American Motorcycle Expedition is not only an account of Jesse and Jessica’s journey through the wonders and perils of Latin America, it is also a guide that helps future travellers plan and execute a motorcycle trip of their own. Each chapter suggests routes and rates them based on the quality of the roads, how enjoyable they are to motorcycle and the sights along the way. This book also contains eight informative appendices which outline, among other things, how to prepare for the trip, how to cross the Darién Gap in Panama and how to maintain a bike during a long expedition. Complete with maps, sound advice and anecdotal experiences, The Great Pan-American Motorcycle Expedition is a must read for motorcycle enthusiasts and arm chair adventurers alike.

More than 11,000 babies are born every day in the United States. Their parents prepare the room, buy all the equipment and diapers, go to birthing classes, find a pediatrician and anxiously await their arrival. Rarely do these parents have any preparation for the sleep deprivation before them. Kim West, author of "Good Night, Sleep Tight" and nationally known as "The SleepLady (tm)" has written 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies" to help new parents learn what they need to do to get their babies - and themselves - the sleep they need. The Sleep Lady(R)approach is founded on my general beliefs as a family therapist: I'm a proponent of parents developing and maintaining a secure attachment with their child while creating a family life where everyone is happy, healthy and well-rested. My sleep approach builds on step-by-step changes in bedtime, napping and overnight routines so that a child can develop sleep independence and sleep more soundly and longer while feeling confident that Mom and Dad will be nearby and responsive. It's a gentler alternative for families who can't stomach the idea of letting their babies cry it out; for families who have tried Ferber without success; and for families who had success earlier on with crying it out but find that it isn't working now. I have also worked with families who believe in co-sleeping but whose babies don't really sleep all that well, even nestled snugly with Mom and Dad. And I've guided many families who did co-sleep for a few months or a few years but now want the family bed to revert to a marital one. 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies summarizes much of what I have learned from working with hundreds of families and that I now teach to the new parents I see in my practice and through my website. So many have asked me for a quick and easy to follow guide to helping their babies learn to sleep and to help them prevent problems down the road, I have put together this little book that you can carry with you anywhere and refer to before and after sleep problems arise.
