Expand your horizons with three stories from far-away countries, tales of timeless wisdom and a window to the soul of other cultures. These three stories are from the most different parts of the world, but all are food for thought and use powerful imagery to help children develop their intelligence and imagination. The first story is from India: ´´The Alligator and the Jackal´´ is a tale of cleverness, about which will defeat the other in a battle of wits. ´´Sinbad the Sailor´´ is taken from the ´´Arabian Nights´´, or ´´One Thousand and One Nights´´, as told by the great Scheherazade, and tells about the fantastic journeys of the folkloric hero. ´´The White Stone Canoe´´ is an American Indian legend, about the making of a ruler from the Iroquois tribe. All are narrated in a warm and lively manner, making it perfect for bedtime stories or entertainment at any hour. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katie Haigh.

Head for the high seas on an adventure with five fearless girls! Their name is not Storm. They are not really sisters. They will tell you, that they are fierce pirates. What will you believe? After the tragic events of what has become known as The Day of Destruction - a day when they were intended to die along with their families - Charlie, Sadie, Liu, Raquel, and Ingela find themselves on the high seas all alone. The girls are in great danger from sinister foes and hidden enemies, and have created a false identity as a fierce group of pirates. Their primary mission, however, is to find out what really happened to their parents. But how long will their disguise keep them from harm? And is it such a good idea to join forces with a group of rebellious boys from their past? Unusual as it is to have five teenage girls living by themselves in the 1780s, all they have left is each other and their friendship... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katy Sobey.

Joshua Slocum was believed to be the first man to sail single-handed around the world. After a distinguished career, where he worked his way up from cabin boy to captain, Joshua Slocum wrecked his ship off the coast of Brazil. Turning this catastrophe to his advantage, he built a sailing canoe from the wreckage and sailed back to New York. Moreover, he wrote Voyage of the Liberdad, a chronicle of his trip, and earned some literary success. This was the spur to attempt his perilous voyage alone around the world. Having lost his fortune in the shipwreck, Slocum began his adventure nearly penniless. He was given the Spray, a century old oyster boat that ´´wants some repairs´´. Two years and $500 later he had rebuilt the wreck into an oceangoing wonder. On his 40,000 mile, three year voyage, Slocum visited six of the seven continents where he met cannibals, presidents, outlaws, and ambassadors. Amazingly, throughout he lived ´off the land´ as it were, fishing, trading, and giving lectures to keep his pantry full. He also met some remarkable people including Mrs. Robert Louis Stevenson and Paul Kruger, who, believing the world was flat, warned Slocum not to fall off! This adventure will captivate sailors and landlubbers alike. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alan Sklar. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/000092/bk_tant_000092_sample.mp3.

Critically acclaimed author David Joy, whose debut, Where All Light Tends to Go, was hailed as ´´a savagely moving novel that will likely become an important addition to the great body of Southern literature´´ (The Huffington Post), returns to the mountains of North Carolina with a powerful story about the inescapable weight of the past. A combat veteran returned from war, Thad Broom can´t leave the hardened world of Afghanistan behind, nor can he forgive himself for what he saw there. His mother, April, is haunted by her own demons, a secret trauma she has carried for years. Between them is Aiden McCall, loyal to both but unable to hold them together. Connected by bonds of circumstance and duty, friendship and love, these three lives are blown apart when Aiden and Thad witness the accidental death of their drug dealer and a riot of dope and cash drops in their laps. On a meth-fueled journey to nowhere, they will either find the grit to overcome the darkness or be consumed by it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: MacLeod Andrews.

From the earliest civilizations to the 21st century: a global journey through human history, published alongside a landmark BBC One television series. Our understanding of world history is changing, as new discoveries are made on all the continents and old prejudices are being challenged. In this truly global journey, Andrew Marr revisits some of the traditional epic stories, from classical Greece and Rome to the rise of Napoleon, but surrounds them with less familiar material, from Peru to the Ukraine, China to the Caribbean. He looks at cultures that have failed and vanished, as well as the origins of today’s superpowers, and finds surprising echoes and parallels across vast distances and epochs. This is a book about the great change-makers of history and their times, people such as Cleopatra, Genghis Khan, Galileo, and Mao, but it is also a book about us. For ´The better we understand how rulers lose touch with reality, or why revolutions produce dictators more often than they produce happiness, or why some parts of the world are richer than others, the easier it is to understand our own times.´ Fresh, exciting and vividly listenable, this is popular history at its very best. 1.
