This book provides an amazing account of how supposedly-purposeless organs have been found to have a function - all in contradiction to ruling evolutionary beliefs. For example, the "useless onetime third eye" pineal gland turns out to regulate circadian rhythms. Jerry Bergman and George Howe thoroughly dismantle a one-time textbook "proof" for Darwinian evolution - the existence of functionless organs in contemporary organisms inherited from their evolutionary ancestors. Darwinists at one time argued that such "vestigial" organs provided support for Darwinism and didn’t fit within a creationist model. But as Bergman and How show from the scientific literature, labeling an organ "vestigial" was ignorant. This well researched and easily written book should have place on the shelf of everyone interested in the evolution controversy. It also would be a great help for students studying biology.
Not only has Brant fallen on hard times, but his beloved wife died a year earlier of lung fever. Left with three children, he's desperate to find a mother for them. Ten year old Jenny does her best in caring for two year old Ty, and fourteen year old Luke works the ranch with his father, losing himself in dime novels to ease the pain of his mother's death.

Marrying a woman he'll come to know through a newspaper ad scares the bejesus out of him, but at this point, he's out of options.
