The Chicago Druid and the Ugly Princess is a story that moves from a time of Irish folklore to modern-day Chicago. It follows the adventures of Fionnuala, a beautiful princess transformed into the ugliest women imaginable by the druid Lochlain, before being sent into the future. In modern Chicago, she encounters madcap characters, such as the crafty Patience, who uses Fionnuala´s powers to make money gambling, and implicates them in gang warfare. She is hunted down by the magical characters from her past, who are searching for the mythological Salmon of Knowledge. In between she is also targeted by the police as a suspect in a terrorist case, and is on a mission to regain her former beauty by finding and receiving a kiss from her one true love. The tone moves from the seriousness of the prologue to something altogether quicker and more irreverent as the novel progresses, keeping the story modern and the listener interested. The mix of this mythological Irish background with contemporary American life is one of the novel´s strengths and provides many instances of humour and contrast. 1. Language: English.

Originally published in 1964, Fisherman´s Fall brings a unique perspective to the world of fall fishing. In the preface, Robert L. Haig-Brown ruminates on the attempts to preserve the salmon and trout in the rivers of British Columbia. What we know could save them, yet what we do contradicts that knowledge. Gaining the knowledge in this book will help fishers learn the nature of the fish and might even inspire some to contribute to their preservation. Fisherman´s Fall gives fishers all the tools to become adept at fishing the rivers of British Columbia as well as firsthand knowledge of the fish of those rivers and their habits. Listeners will discover the unique fishing facts and techniques that accompany the fall season, differences between salmon in salt water and fresh water, the ocean years of salmon, the nature of estuaries, steelhead mysteries, and what makes an ideal stream. Besides gathering wise information, listeners get to glimpse the inner thoughts of a fisherman in the chapters describing Haig-Brown´s own thoughts while fishing. These wise words will speak to any fisher, and they will even speak to those who have never been on a river. Combining angling advice and inner reflection, this audiobook is a must-have for fishermen and fisherwomen of all ages. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John McLain.

The widow Liza Romero came to Wrangell, Alaska, for solitude and a chance to reinvent herself. Now, in her old wooden halibut schooner, Salmon Eye, she ferries library books and groceries across Steamer Bay. One day her first-mate Sam - part-Labrador part-redhound - spots the body of a small, nearly drowned Tlingit boy, marooned on a rock. They rescue the boy and take him to Wrangell, only to discover the body of a very old native man. Then someone on a mist-shrouded boat starts shooting at them. Liza can´t shake her curiosity over the crimes, or her concern for the boy James. She also can´t shake loose the embittered local police lieutenant, or her knowledge of missing Tlingit artifacts. She must also deal with the drunken old man ´´Crow´´. The plot is laden with history, lore, and stunning settings, all adding up to an enticing mystery that only Liza can solve. 1. Language: English.
