Fly Into The Wind

“Lt Colonel Dan Rooney transcends the best of the American Warrior Spirit. Fly Into the Wind is a powerful read that will absolutely help you discover your destined path and unlock your best life.” —Sean Hannity, #1 New York Times bestselling author F-16 fighter pilot, American hero, Folds of Honor founder, and family man Dan Rooney delivers a code for living—an inspirational call to action to help ordinary people ascend to their highest level in life. CAVU is an Air Force acronym that stands for “ceiling and visibility unrestricted.” It describes the perfect conditions for flying a fighter jet, when steel-blue skies invite pilots to spread their wings like supersonic eagles. Fighter pilots cherish CAVU days because they know tomorrow can bring challenging conditions. Life is no different. From the outside, it looked like the American dream: Lieutenant Colonel Dan “Noonan” Rooney was an F-16 fighter pilot, PGA Professional, husband to his college sweetheart, and father of five daughters. His position in life should have been a blessing. But a near-tragic mishap while piloting his F-16 triggered an ominous life storm that altered his trajectory and filled him with self-doubt. A jet takes off into the wind because it requires resistance over its wings to fly. Embracing this outlook, Lt Colonel Rooney’s attitude toward the resistance in his life changed from resentment to humble introspection. It was then that he began to apply CAVU to his personal life. In Fly Into the Wind, he shares a code of living that combines powerful tenets and the ultimate belief in God to help you discover and seize your best life. Hyper-focused on the precise areas that are immediately under your control, CAVU is a disciplined approach to each day that will help you reshape, motivate, prioritize, and ultimately thrive—in the time-honored spirit of the fighter pilot. Rooney has broken down CAVU into ten unique lines of effort (LOE), with each LOE building upon the previous one to provide a positive vector toward a new way of living. Along this enlightened path, readers will discover a renewed belief in themselves and the art of the possible. Part spiritual guide and part call to action, Fly Into the Wind combines Lt Colonel Rooney’s Air Force fighter pilot stories with his discovery of faith and purpose in order to help each reader achieve CAVU. In this world of identity politics, PC police, misplaced morals, and external noise, Rooney’s book will show how all of us are connected by God in more ways than we realize, and that the path to fulfillment begins with changing ourselves in order to better one another.

Fly Into The Wind

Fly Into The Wind

In the spirit of Can't Hurt Me and Grateful American, a decorated F-16 fighter pilot--who was awarded the Whitehouse Volunteer Service medal by President George W. Bush and was named one of ABC World News' Persons of the Year--shares his self-help and spiritual philosophy, guiding readers toward a life filled with faith, purpose, and essence. As a United States Air Force fighter pilot, Lt Colonel Dan Rooney is among a select group of elite warriors. Yet for many years, this skilled fighter pilot who flew F-16s over the Persian Gulf measured his stature by others' perceptions. Driven by a fear of failure, he sought external affirmation and material success. Like many in the military, he struggled with post combat anxiety and depression. But it was his belief in God and the powerful tenants of a self-created philosophy which made him eventually see life as a positive and dynamic force to be embraced. His code of living, CAVU, was forged by his Air Force experience and in his personal storm of life. An aeronautical term, CAVU--Ceiling And Visibility Unlimited--describes the optimal flying conditions: skies are bright and blue, with no physical obstructions or dangers. But in daily life, most days are far from perfect. We all encounter struggle and the daily grind wears us down. We begin to course through life on autopilot, and before we know it, our aspirations, dreams, passion, and resolve are gone. CAVU is a code of living designed to help anyone reclaim that fire of self-determination, to see the benefit of weathering the storms of our life and turning them into new, clearly realized visions. Fly Into the Wind introduces CAVU to everyone. Each chapter centers around a particular lesson (line of effort) and offers a positive vector toward a new code of living. Rooney helps us discover a renewed belief in ourselves and the art of the possible. Part spiritual guide and part call-to-action, it combines his stories as a pilot, philanthropist, and PGA golf professional with his discovery of faith and purpose. At a time when our divisions are growing, Rooney reminds us that we are connected more than we realize, and that the path to greatness begins with changing ourselves.

The Four Winds

The Four Winds

From the number-one bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone comes a powerful American epic about love and heroism and hope, set during the Great Depression, a time when the country was in crisis and at war with itself, when millions were out of work and even the land seemed to have turned against them. “My land tells its story if you listen. The story of our family.” Texas, 1921. A time of abundance. The Great War is over, the bounty of the land is plentiful, and America is on the brink of a new and optimistic era. But for Elsa Wolcott, deemed too old to marry in a time when marriage is a woman’s only option, the future seems bleak. Until the night she meets Rafe Martinelli and decides to change the direction of her life. With her reputation in ruin, there is only one respectable choice: marriage to a man she barely knows. By 1934, the world has changed; millions are out of work and drought has devastated the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as crops fail and water dries up and the earth cracks open. Dust storms roll relentlessly across the plains. Everything on the Martinelli farm is dying, including Elsa’s tenuous marriage; each day is a desperate battle against nature and a fight to keep her children alive. In this uncertain and perilous time, Elsa—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or leave it behind and go west, to California, in search of a better life for her family. The Four Winds is a rich, sweeping novel that stunningly brings to life the Great Depression and the people who lived through it—the harsh realities that divided us as a nation and the enduring battle between the haves and the have-nots. A testament to hope, resilience, and the strength of the human spirit to survive adversity, The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation.

At The Back Of The North Wind

At The Back Of The North Wind

The Scottish author’s literary masterpiece—the fantastical story of a young boy’s adventures with a woman of supernatural powers. Historically, At the Back of the North Wind ranks as George MacDonald’s most well-known and enduring book, the haunting tale of little Diamond, a simple London cabman’s son and his dreamy encounters with the mysterious, wise, powerful, comforting, and occasionally frightening lady known as North Wind. Their eerie nighttime adventures have captivated readers old and young ever since the book’s publication in 1871. It has been published in more editions than any of MacDonald’s works, and ranks as one of the few (perhaps only) title of MacDonald’s that has likely never been out of print. Its skillfully woven intermingling of realism and fantasy set MacDonald apart as a writer of uniqueness and distinction in the early 1870s as his reputation widened. This edition for The Cullen Collection is unedited in any way.
