Everybody imagines the world´s most interesting man to be a fictional, gray-haired lothario who drinks Mexican beer and boasts of his legendary exploits. But what if a man like this really lived? It turns out he did, and there were two of them--both Victorian explorers. The first was Richard Franics Burton, an adventurer who learned 29 languages, went undercover as a Muslim on a pilgrimage to Mecca, and wrote 50 books on topics ranging from a translation of the Kama Sutra to a manual on bayonet exercises. The second was Sir Richard Stanley, who led a massive expedition through Africa to find Dr. Livingston. By the time of his death in 1904, he had explored much of the continent and developed much of the interior. Stanley´s greatest expedition was his 1874-1877 crossing of Africa on foot to the mouth of the Congo, traveling more than 7,000 miles and contending with the threat of malaria, unknown wild animals in the jungle, unfriendly tribesmen, harsh weather conditions, worries about running out of food, and any number of incomprehensible threats to their lives on that dangerous voyage. Learn about the lives of these two extraordinary men and how a beer pitchman could never hope to live up to them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Pierce.

A moving coming-of-age story set in the 1900s, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn follows the lives of 11-year-old Francie Nolan, her younger brother Neely, and their parents, Irish immigrants who have settled in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. Johnny Nolan is as loving and fanciful as they come, but he is also often drunk and out of work, unable to find his place in the land of opportunity. His wife Katie scrubs floors to put food on the table and clothes on her children´s backs, instilling in them the values of being practical and planning ahead. When Johnny dies, leaving Katie pregnant, Francie, smart, pensive and hoping for something better, cannot believe that life can carry on as before. But with her own determination, and that of her mother behind her, Francie is able to move toward the future of her dreams, completing her education and heading off to college, always carrying the beloved Brooklyn of her childhood in her heart. 1.

Internet star Christine McConnell bakes, decorates, sews, and styles it all . . . with a twist-now she shows you how to do it on a shoestring budget. Photographer and stylist Christine McConnell transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary-from everyday dinners, to desserts for all occasions, to the walls of your kitchen, and even some over-the-top creations just for fun. Taking inspiration from the likes of Tim Burton, Alfred Hitchcock, and Vincent Price and mixing in a dash of Stepford Wife, McConnell´s baking and home DIY projects are a league above and beyond anything you´ve seen before. In Deceptive Desserts, each dessert is a work of art-some a little twisted, others magical-but every recipe inspires readers to create their own rules without spending a fortune. Why can´t crab cakes be a delicious pink-frosted dessert? And if you´re stuck hosting a bridal shower, why not create an actual Bridezilla cake to match the bride´s ego? Nothing is sacrosanct in the wonderfully weird world of Christine McConnell and nothing is what it appears to be-even a classic dinner can be transformed into something decadent, with doughnuts that look like chicken drumsticks, green beans made of candy, and ice cream mashed potatoes. A master of illusions in baking, McConnell shows readers how to create their own secret hidden gems in the kitchen. In her follow-up book, McConnell will go outside the kitchen to show readers how to incorporate magic and fantasy into their home decor and personal style without breaking the bank. Using the renovations of her own house as a guide, McConnell walks readers through easy DIY projects such as hand-painted wallpaper, refinishing wood and tile floors, and adding storage space, along with inexpensive decorating tips. A dazzling collection of photographs, stories revealing her one-of-a-kind character, and helpful tricks for doing it all yourself, McConnell´s book will inspire readers to be more playful, and just a little bit wicked, with the food they create and the space they inhabit.

The dramatic relationship between Ray Kroc, the man who amassed a fortune as chairman of one of America´s most controversial and iconic companies - McDonald´s - and the passionate woman - his wife, Joan - who then gave that fortune away. Ray & Joan is a quintessentially American tale of corporate intrigue and private passion: a struggling Mad Men-era salesman with a vision for a fast-food franchise that would become one of the world´s most enduring brands and a beautiful woman willing to risk her marriage and her reputation to promote controversial causes that touched her deeply. Ray Kroc was peddling franchises around the country for a fledgling hamburger stand in the 1950s - McDonald´s, it was called - when he entered a St. Paul supper club and encountered a beautiful young piano player who would change his life forever. The attraction between Ray and Joan was instantaneous and instantly problematic. Yet even the fact that both were married to other people couldn´t derail their roller coaster of a romance. To the outside world, Ray and Joan were happy, enormously rich, and giving. But privately Joan was growing troubled over Ray´s temper and dark secret, something she was reluctant to publicly reveal. Those close to them compared their relationship to that of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. And yet this volatility paved the way for Joan´s transformation into one of the greatest philanthropists of our time. A force in the peace movement, she produced activist films, books, and music and ultimately gave away billions of dollars, including landmark gifts to the Salvation Army and NPR. Together, the two stories form a compelling portrait of the 20th century: a story of big business, big love, and big giving. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Napoli.
