#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LOS ANGELES TIMES, THE GUARDIAN, AND SUSPENSE MAGAZINE Stephen King calls Jack Reacher the coolest continuing series character and now he s back in this masterly new thriller from Lee Child. Why is this town called Mother s Rest? That s all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It s a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal. Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, and there s something about Chang . . . so he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He thinks: How bad can this thing be? But before long he s plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco, and through the hidden parts of the internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way right back to where he started, in Mother s Rest, where he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine. Walking away would have been easier. But as always, Reacher s rule is: If you want me to stop, you re going to have to make me. Praise for Make Me Child s Reacher series has hit Book No. 20 with a resounding peal of wisecracking glee. Everything about it, starting with Reacher s nose for bad news, is as strong as ever. . . . The big guy s definitely on the upswing. The guy who writes about him is too. Janet Maslin, The New York Times Another winner. . . There s a reason why Child is considered the best of the best in the thriller genre: He can take all these strange elements and cliches and make them compelling and original. Associated Press A superb thriller. New York Daily News Child s complete command of the story makes this thriller work brilliantly. Publishers Weekly (starred review) I ve read all twenty of Lee Child s novels. Maybe there s something wrong with me. But I can t wait for the twenty-first. Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker [The Reacher series] is the current gold standard in the genre. . . . In Make Me Lee Child delivers another Jack Reacher specialty; the total knockout. Dayton Daily News Child serves up wingding plots, pithy dialogue, extraordinary background on intriguing topics, and cunningly constructed suspense. But what keeps us coming back by the millions is the chance to walk around in the skin of that big guy in the middle of everything. The Oregonian A dark thriller . . . Lee Child s Make Me, the twentieth in his wildly popular Jack Reacher series, delivers exactly what readers have come to expect from the perennial bestselling author: interesting characters, tight plots and page-turning action. . . .

There were hundreds of ways which were used to make fire out of almost nowhere, and they fulfilled some of those elementary purposes for which fire is used, even today. We are least likely to come across situations and circumstances that our stone-aged ancestors faced, where they were required to make fire to survive. Nevertheless, the tools and technologies that today's sophisticated and highly advanced world has brought to us are useful only when they are within access. You will need knowledge, skills, educated ideas, and some basic tools to start a fire when you are stuck in a far-flung island all by yourself. All you need is a tall flame to make yourself noticed and be located. You will need these skills when you are staying overnight in a zone you chose to chase game if you forget to bring matches or a lighter to start fire, which could keep you warm and prevent wild animals from coming near. The link between man and fire traces back to the ages when one of the very first human creatures, or something close to that, landed on this earth. This primal relationship between human and fire highlights the importance of fire and how pivotal a role its existence plays in our survival. From cooking to heating and from signaling to repelling predators, fire has been one of the primary ingredients of the basic human survival toolkit. Interestingly, the mythological and spiritual part of fire in various religions or cults of the world also dates back to primitive ages. It can also be assumed that men understood fire and its utility in different ways, which mainly evolved from their experiences with it. Thanks to our ancestors who developed the ability to use fire in several ways and transferred this ability, each generation has only added more value to the application of fire. Without knowing about anthropology, one can safely say that this skill required memory, analysis, and future planning - the traits that separated us from our earliest ancestors. Since then, fire has done nothing but facilitated us and provided us with an easier life. For example, generating the power that runs my PC, heating your home, or running some artillery that protects usare ways we enjoy an easier life. The more sophisticated and advanced form of fire utility, like industrial or military use, brings a plethora of advantages and disadvantages on the table to debate about. However, we shall focus on some of the most commonly used and essential applications of fire such as methods of setting up fire with limited quirky tools in unseen situations.
