A Course Called America: Fifty States, Five Thousand Fairways, and the Search for the Great American Audiobook

A Course Called America: Fifty States, Five Thousand Fairways, and the Search for the Great American

Author: Tom Coyne Narrator: Jacques Roy Release Date: May 2021

Globe-trotting golfer Tom Coyne has finally come home. And he's ready to play all of it. After playing hundreds of courses overseas in the birthplace of golf, ​Coyne, the New York Times bestselling author of A Course Called Ireland and A Course Called Scotland, returns to his own birthplace and delivers a rollicking love letter to golf in the United States. In the span of one unforgettable year, Coyne crisscrosses the country in search of its greatest golf experience, playing every course to ever host a US Open, along with more than two hundred hidden gems and heavyweights, visiting all fifty states to find a better understanding of his home country and countrymen. Coyne's journey begins where the US Open and US Amateur got their start, historic Newport Country Club in Rhode Island. As he travels from the oldest and most elite of links to the newest and most democratic, Coyne finagles his way onto coveted first tees (Shinnecock, Oakmont, Chicago GC) between rounds at off-the-map revelations, like ranch golf in Eastern Oregon and homemade golf in the Navajo Nation. He marvels at the golf miracle hidden in the sand hills of Nebraska, and plays an unforgettable midnight game under bright sunshine on the summer solstice in Fairbanks, Alaska. More than just a tour of the best golf the United States has to offer, Coyne's quest connects him with hundreds of American golfers, each from a different background but all with one thing in common: pride in welcoming Coyne to their course. Trading stories and swing tips with caddies, pros, and golf buddies for the day, Coyne adopts the wisdom of one of his hosts in Minnesota: the best courses are the ones you play with the best people. But, in the end, only one stop on Coyne's journey can be ranked the Great American Golf Course. Throughout his travels, he invites golfers to debate and help shape his criteria for judging the quintessential American course. Should it be charmingly traditional or daringly experimental? An architectural showpiece or a natural wonder? Countless conversations and gut instinct lead him to seek out a course that feels bold and idealistic, welcoming yet imperfect, with a little revolutionary spirit and a damn good hot dog at the turn. He discovers his long-awaited answer in the most unlikely of places. Packed with fascinating tales from American golf history, comic road misadventures, illuminating insights into course design, and many a memorable round with local golfers and celebrity guests alike, A Course Called America is an epic narrative travelogue brimming with heart and soul.

If You Were There: Missing People and the Marks They Leave Behind Audiobook

If You Were There: Missing People and the Marks They Leave Behind

Author: Francisco Garcia Narrator: Francisco Garcia Release Date: May 2021

‘One of the non-fiction books of the year.’ Andrew O’ Hagan A powerful, evocative and deeply personal journey into the world of missing people When Francisco Garcia was just seven years old, his father, Christobal, left his family. Unemployed, addicted to drink and drugs, and adrift in life, Christobal decided he would rather disappear altogether than carry on dealing with the problems in front of him. So that’s what he did, leaving his young wife and child in the dead of night. He has been missing ever since. Twenty years on, Francisco is ready to take up the search for answers. Why did this happen and how could it be possible? Where might his father have gone? And is there any reason to hope for a happy reunion? During his journey, which takes him all across Britain and back to his father’s homeland of Spain, Francisco tells the stories of those he meets along the way: the police investigators; the charity employees and volunteers; the once missing and those perilously at risk around us; the families, friends and all those left behind. If You Were There is the moving and affecting story of one man’s search for his lost family, an urgent document of where we are now and a powerful, timeless reminder of our responsibility to others.

The Comfort Crisis: Embrace Discomfort To Reclaim Your Wild, Happy, Healthy Self

Author: Michael Easter Narrator: Michael Easter Release Date: May 2021

"If you've been looking for something different to level up your health, fitness, and personal growth, this is it."-Melissa Urban, Whole30 CEO and New York Times bestselling author Discover the evolutionary mind and body benefits of living at the edges of your comfort zone and reconnecting with the wild. In many ways, we're more comfortable than ever before. But could our sheltered, temperature-controlled, overfed, underchallenged lives actually be the leading cause of many our most urgent physical and mental health issues? In this gripping investigation, award-winning journalist Michael Easter seeks out off-the-grid visionaries, disruptive genius researchers, and mind-body conditioning trailblazers who are unlocking the life-enhancing secrets of a counterintuitive solution: discomfort.   Easter's journey to understand our evolutionary need to be challenged takes him to meet the NBA's top exercise scientist, who uses an ancient Japanese practice to build championship athletes; to the mystical country of Bhutan, where an Oxford economist and Buddhist leader are showing the world what death can teach us about happiness; to the outdoor lab of a young neuroscientist who's found that nature tests our physical and mental endurance in ways that expand creativity while taming burnout and anxiety; to the remote Alaskan backcountry on a demanding thirty-three-day hunting expedition to experience the rewilding secrets of one of the last rugged places on Earth; and more.   Along the way, Easter uncovers a blueprint for leveraging the power of discomfort that will dramatically improve our health and happiness, and perhaps even help us understand what it means to be human. The Comfort Crisis is a bold call to break out of your comfort zone and explore the wild within yourself.

Author: Kate Bromley Narrator: Norma Butikofer Release Date: May 2021

A hilarious romcom for fans of Beach Read and The Hating Game Inspiration can be found in the most unlikely - and inconvenient - places Kara Sullivan is definitely not avoiding her deadline. After all, it's the week of her best friend's wedding and she's the maid of honour, so she's got lots of responsibilities. She's a bestselling romance novelist with seven novels under her belt, so she's a pro. Looming deadlines don't scare her, and neither does writer's block, which she most certainly does not have. She's just eager to support Cristina as she ties the knot. Right? Right. But then who should show up at the rehearsal dinner but Kara's college ex-boyfriend, Ryan? Turns out he's one of the groom's childhood friends, and he's in the wedding party, too. Considering neither Kara nor Ryan were prepared to see each other ever again, it's decidedly a meet-NOT-cute. However, when Kara sits down to write again the next day, her writer's block is suddenly gone. Are muses real? And is Kara's muse . . . Ryan?

Dunnarunna: A Retirement Dunn Right Audiobook

Dunnarunna: A Retirement Dunn Right

Author: Maria Augustus-Dunn Narrator: Mandy Turner Release Date: May 2021

'Write what you know' is Maria Augustus-Dunn's mantra. With this in mind, she wrote her first book Married Quarter - Boots, Berets and Bloody Uniforms in 2016 which detailed her 21 years as a military spouse. Married Quarter is a glimpse into the world of military families who endure postings, deployments, long periods of separation and often loneliness. A diagnosis of a benign brain tumour in 2008 turned her life upside down and forced some pretty serious issues. It was time to rethink life. What was important? Was it time to think about retirement? After many postings, it was time to think about life after the military. What would it look like? Married Quarter finishes in 2011 when Maria and her husband decided to retire for a life on the road, travelling around Australia as permanent travellers. They sold up and gave away all their worldly possessions and have been travelling around Australia ever since. In 2018 Maria picked up the pen again and started writing her second book Dunnarunna - A Retirement Dunn Right, which follows their first five years of travelling around Australia. The highs, the lows, and everything in between, are written in Maria's voice. You can hear her talking when you read her personal diaries and experiences of her travelling life. There is never a dull moment, according to Maria. Life on the road is never boring. It can be challenging, rewarding, funny, and sometimes downright scary, but never boring. Dunnarunna will have you laughing, crying, cheering, and may also have you wanting to take that leap of faith and head off travelling too. Dunnarunna is for those who wonder what it is like to give up all your security and become of no fixed address. Travel around Australia with Maria and her hubby while you read Dunnarunna - you won't be bored!

Get Real, Get Gone: How to Become a Modern Sea Gypsy and Sail Away Forever... Audiobook

Get Real, Get Gone: How to Become a Modern Sea Gypsy and Sail Away Forever...

Author: Rick Page Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: April 2021

The idea that you have to be rich to travel the world on your own yacht is so universal that it goes largely unquestioned. The ubiquitous images of rich men on super-yachts sipping Martinis only help cement this image. This book hopes to change all that. Rick's recent appearance on Ben Fogle's New Lives in the Wild chronicled his budget lifestyle and adventures aboard Calypso, and introduced the idea of budget sailing to a whole new audience-an audience who may have never considered the possibility that such a dream could be made a reality, on such a small amount of money. This book is for them and for any experienced sailors who want to cast off the yoke of consumerist yachting and get back to what really matters at sea. If you are not rich, but dream of seeing our beautiful world from the deck of your own boat, this book is packed full of practical and spiritual advice to help you cut through the endless marketing and identify what it is you truly need to become a modern sea gypsy and sail away on the greatest adventure of your life . . .

Names of New York: Discovering the City's Past, Present, and Future Through Its Place-Names Audiobook

Names of New York: Discovering the City's Past, Present, and Future Through Its Place-Names

Author: Joshua Jelly-Schapiro Narrator: Joshua Jelly-Schapiro Release Date: April 2021

'A casually wondrous experience; it made me feel like the city was unfolding beneath my feet." -Jia Tolentino, author of Trick Mirror In place-names lie stories. That's the truth that animates this fascinating journey through the names of New York City's streets and parks, boroughs and bridges, playgrounds and neighborhoods. Exploring the power of naming to shape experience and our sense of place, Joshua Jelly-Schapiro traces the ways in which native Lenape, Dutch settlers, British invaders, and successive waves of immigrants have left their marks on the city's map. He excavates the roots of many names, from Brooklyn to Harlem, that have gained iconic meaning worldwide. He interviews the last living speakers of Lenape, visits the harbor's forgotten islands, lingers on street corners named for ballplayers and saints, and meets linguists who study the estimated eight hundred languages now spoken in New York. As recent arrivals continue to find new ways to make New York's neighborhoods their own, the names that stick to the city's streets function not only as portals to explore the past but also as a means to reimagine what is possible now.
