Race to the Bottom of the Earth: Surviving Antartica Audiobook

Race to the Bottom of the Earth: Surviving Antartica

Author: Rebecca E. F. Barone Narrator: Kate Mulligan Release Date: April 2021

Equal parts adventure & STEM, this thrilling middle-grade nonfiction book chronicles two groundbreaking voyages to the South Pole. In 1910, Captain Robert Scott prepared his crew for a trip that no one had ever completed: a journey to the South Pole. He vowed to get there any way he could, even if it meant looking death in the eye. Then, not long before he set out, another intrepid explorer, Roald Amundsen, set his sights on the same goal. Suddenly two teams were vying to be the first to make history-what was to be an expedition had become a perilous race.In 2018, Captain Louis Rudd readied himself for a similarly grueling task: the first solo crossing of treacherous Antarctica. But little did he know that athlete Colin O'Brady was training for the same trek-and he was determined to beat Louis to the finish line. For fans of Michael Tougias' The Finest Hours and Deborah Heiligman's Torpedoed, this gripping account of two history-making moments of exploration and competition is perfect for budding scientists, survivalists, and thrill seekers.

Martin Gardner: The Magic and Mystery of Numbers Audiobook

Martin Gardner: The Magic and Mystery of Numbers

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Kate Mulligan Release Date: March 2021

How many people achieve a cult following because of their writing in mathematics? Only a handful, and Martin Gardner is among the most well known and well loved. Not only did he present a notoriously difficult subject in an engaging and accessible way, but in doing so, he attracted an incredibly broad readership. His correspondents ranged from academics like Roger Penrose and John Horton Conway to artists MC Escher and Salvador Dali to writer Isaac Asimov. His "Mathematical Games" column in Scientific American ran nearly every month for twenty-six years and was one of the most popular in the magazine's history. In this anthology, we strove to create a new "slice" through his wealth of material. Here, we focus on all flavors of numbers, from common integers and negative numbers to figurate numbers and the exotic random number Omega, which can be described but not computed. Some of these columns are less well known, but they are no less fun. In true Gardner fashion, they leap from magic and games-as well as art, music, and literature-to flashes of deep mathematical insight. We hope that they will prove as inspirational now as they did to earlier audiences.

Why We Love Pirates: The Hunt for Captain Kidd and How He Changed Piracy Forever Audiobook

Why We Love Pirates: The Hunt for Captain Kidd and How He Changed Piracy Forever

Author: Rebecca Simon Narrator: Kate Mulligan Release Date: February 2021

During his life and even after his death, Captain William Kidd's name was known around England and the American colonies. He was infamous for the very crime for which he was hanged, piracy. This book by Rebecca Simon dives into the details of the two-year manhunt for Captain Kidd and the events that ensued afterward. Captain Kidd was hanged in 1701, and from that sprung a massive hunt for all pirates led by the British during a period known as the Golden Age of Piracy. Ironically, public executions only led to pirates' growth in popularity and interest. In addition, because the American colonies relied on pirates for smuggled goods such as spices, wines, and silks, they sought to protect pirates from being captured. The more pirates were hunted and executed, the more people became supportive of them. They felt for the "Robin Hoods of the Sea"-both because they saw the British's treatment of them as an injustice and because they treasured the goods that pirates brought to them. These historical events were pivotal in creating the portrayal of pirates as we know them today. They grew into romantic antiheroes-which ultimately led to characters like the mischievous but lovable Captain Jack Sparrow. Simon has presented her research on the history of pirates around the world, and now she's bringing the spectacular story of Captain Kidd to her readers. Learn more about one of the most famous pirates in history,real-life pirates and the brutal executions they faced, andthe origin of our romanticized view of pirates.

In 1971, Eddie Conway, lieutenant of security for the Baltimore chapter of the Black Panther Party, was convicted of murdering a police officer and sentenced to life plus thirty years behind bars. Paul Coates was a community worker at the time and didn't know Eddie well, and the little he knew, he didn't much like. But Paul was dead certain that Eddie's charges were bogus. He vowed never to leave Eddie-and in so doing, changed the course of both their lives. For over forty-three years, as he raised a family and started a business, Paul visited Eddie in prison, often taking his kids with him. He and Eddie shared their lives and worked together on dozens of legal campaigns in hopes of gaining Eddie's release.

When, in 2014, Eddie finally walked out onto the streets of Baltimore, Paul Coates was there to greet him. Today, these two men remain rock-solid comrades and friends, each being the other's chosen brother.When Eddie and Paul met in the Baltimore Panther Party, they were in their early twenties. They are now into their seventies. This book is a record of their lives and their relationship, told in their own voices.

Dear Madam-You are surely informed about the situation of all Jews in Central Europe and this letter will not astonish you. In August 1939, just days before World War II broke out in Europe, a Jewish man in Vienna named Alfred Berger mailed a desperate letter to a stranger in America who shared his last name.

Evolution: The Human Odyssey Audiobook

Evolution: The Human Odyssey

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Kate Mulligan Release Date: December 2020

The complex story of human evolution is a tale seven million years in the making. Each new discovery adds to or revises our story and our understanding of how we came to be the way we are. In this audiobook, The Human Odyssey, we explore the evolution of those characteristics that make us human. The first section looks at our family tree and why some branches survived and not others. Swings in climate are emerging as a factor in what traits succeeded and failed; meanwhile, DNA analyses show that Homo sapiens interbred with other human species, which played a key role in our survival. Section two examines those traits that separate us from other primates. Recent data indicate that our hairless skin was important to the rise of other human features, and other research is getting closer to illuminating how humans became monogamous. In the final section we speculate on the future of human evolution in a world where advances in technology, medicine, and other areas protect us from harmful factors like disease, causing some scientists to claim that humans are no longer subject to natural selection and our evolution has ceased. But, like us, our story will continue to evolve.

The House on Henry Street: The Enduring Life of a Lower East Side Settlement Audiobook

The House on Henry Street: The Enduring Life of a Lower East Side Settlement

Author: Ellen M. Snyder-Grenier Narrator: Kate Mulligan Release Date: September 2020

Chronicles the sweeping history of the storied Henry Street Settlement and its enduring vision of a more just society On a cold March day in 1893, 26-year-old nurse Lillian Wald rushed through the poverty-stricken streets of New York’s Lower East Side to a squalid bedroom where a young mother lay dying—abandoned by her doctor because she could not pay his fee. The misery in the room and the walk to reach it inspired Wald to establish Henry Street Settlement, which would become one of the most influential social welfare organizations in American history. Through personal narratives, vivid images, and previously untold stories, Ellen M. Snyder-Grenier chronicles Henry Street’s sweeping history from 1893 to today. From the fights for public health and immigrants’ rights that fueled its founding, to advocating for relief during the Great Depression, all the way to tackling homelessness and AIDS in the 1980s, and into today—Henry Street has been a champion for social justice. Its powerful narrative illuminates larger stories about poverty, and who is “worthy” of help; immigration and migration, and who is welcomed; human rights, and whose voice is heard. For over 125 years, Henry Street Settlement has survived in a changing city and nation because of its ability to change with the times; because of the ingenuity of its guiding principle—that by bridging divides of class, culture, and race we could create a more equitable world; and because of the persistence of poverty, racism, and income disparity that it has pledged to confront. This makes the story of Henry Street as relevant today as it was more than a century ago. The House on Henry Street is not just about the challenges of overcoming hardship, but about the best possibilities of urban life and the hope and ambition it takes to achieve them.

Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women Audiobook

Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women

Author: Elyse Fitzpatrick, Eric Schumacher Narrator: Kate Mulligan, Matthew Mcauliffe Release Date: May 2020

What does the Bible say about the value of women? Does the Bible teach that women are as valuable as men, or does it portray them as somehow more flawed, more suspect, or weak and easily deceived? Beginning from Genesis and working all the way through the story line of the Bible, Worthy demonstrates the significant and yes, even surprising, ways that God has used women to accomplish His kingdom goals. Like men, they are created in His image, and their lives reflect and declare His worth. Worthy will enable and encourage both men and women to embrace this true and lofty vision of God’s creation, plan, and their value in His eyes. Bestselling author Elyse Fitzpatrick and pastor Eric Schumacher together invite women to embrace a transformative and empowering view of their Maker, themselves, and the church. But this isn’t only a book for women. It is also a book for men, especially leaders, who want to grow in their understanding of God’s perspective on women, people who normally make up the majority of their congregations. Men might be wondering if they’ve missed something amid the abuse scandals that are rocking the church. Might the headlines they’re reading today about abuse have their roots in a denigration of the value and worth of women? Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women will help every listener see the value, place, and calling of women through study questions and a “Digging Deeper” section that will help men and women discover how to cherish, value, and honor one another for God’s glory.
