The American cowboy came to the West to begin again after a bloody civil war had ended. He worked long hours in lonely cow camps and his pay was meager, but he had grit and determination. He faced constant danger; he fought Indians and rustlers and braved swollen rivers and stampedes. And, finally, when the days of the open range were over, he rode off into the sunset. But his legacy lives on.He had created a new West, a West that would endure forever in books, songs, movies, and television. In your mind´s eye, you can still see him astride his horse, silhouetted on a hill, looking resolute, wild and free.There were others, though, who wanted to claim a homestead and live forever in the West. On September 16, 1893, they had their chance. One hundred and fifty thousand men and women waited at the edges of a vasttract of government land they called the Cherokee Strip, waiting for a signal that would open 40,000 homesteads for settlement. They had come from every state and abroad. Among them were doctors and lawyers, housewives, farmers, cowboys, and drifters. But for every person who would claim a homestead, two would be disappointed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Donnie Blanz, Joe Loesch.

On June 25, 1876, five troops of the U. S. Seventh Cavalry, under command of General George Armstrong Custer, rode into the valley of the Little Big Horn River expecting to rout the Indian encampment there. Instead they were met by the gathered strength of the Sioux and Cheyenne warriors, who did not run, but turned to battle the soldiers. White Bull charged again and again, leading a war party until the last soldier lay dead. The battle became known as Custer´s Last Stand, and Chief White Bull as the warrior who killed Custer. In 1932, White Bull told his own side of the story to Stanley Vestal. ´´All that I have told is straight and true,´´ said White Bull. His story is a matchless telling of the life of a Sioux warrior. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Taylor. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bimo/000539/bk_bimo_000539_sample.mp3.

FNH Audio presents the story of Fourth Massachusetts Cavalry, a regiment that was formed during the American Civil War. Its officers were almost all experienced men and the rank and file was likewise seeded with experience. The unit served with distinction throughout its existence. The book comes in three sections. The first tells of the ´´Battle at High Bridge´´. The Fourth were dispatched to the bridge having been told the defences would be light or non-existent. The truth however was somewhat different. Not only was it defended by infantry but also dug-in artillery in a strong position. The second section tells of the part ´´the Fourth´´ played in raising the Union flag in Richmond, as told by the wife of a southern general, Major-General George E. Pickett. As the Northern army closed in, the civilian and military occupants of Richmond began pulling out. The southern troops tried to fire the town. Into this maelstrom rode ´´the Fourth´´. The final part starts with president Lincoln entering Richmond and is escorted around by ´´the Fourth´´, and then follows the Fourth as they move onto Appomattox. There they meet and escort General Lee, through the lines and on to his home. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot.

Not many have experienced as much of Texas history firsthand as John James Dix. At the age of seven, he came to Texas with his family, arriving in Stephen F. Austin´s colony, and listened to the stories of his father, who fought in the early battles of the Texas Revolution under heroes of the Republic - Austin and Travis. He drove steers, worked under General Zachary Taylor in the Mexican-American War, and, after he married, was a neighbor to Richard King on the Santa Gertrudis Ranch. He became a Texas Ranger and rode with John Salmon Old Rip Ford. These were only a few of Dix´s many adventures, and in this detailed biography, Dan R. Manning brings to light the great history of a man who was part of that legendary foundation that became the Lone Star State. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Rundell.

The high-stakes battle between two casino titans over the Las Vegas of the East Coast. It´s all quiet now on the eastern front of the American gaming industry - Atlantic City, New Jersey - but for five chaotic years, real estate developer Richard ´´Skip´´ Bronson was at the white-hot center of a titanic clash of money and power that transformed Atlantic City from a struggling day-tripper place with buses in and out to a born again destination drawing tourists from New York, Philadelphia, and other major cities along the eastern seaboard. From 1995 to 2000, two of the world´s best-known companies - Mirage Resorts and Trump Resorts - run by two of the most flamboyant businessmen of our time, fought a bare-knuckled, high-stakes battle over a prime piece of real estate in one of America´s most famous resort towns. No money was spared, no punch was pulled, no invective went unhurled in The War at the Shore. Now Bronson, who was a member of the board of directors of Mirage and president of New City Development Company, the Mirage subsidiary whose primary purpose was to build a top-level new casino and hotel complex in Atlantic City, tells the inside story of this epic struggle. Along the way, Bronson weaves in fascinating and inspiring anecdotes from his complicated past: A product of a fractured family and city-owned housing project in Hartford, Connecticut; former paperboy, spelling bee champion yet college dropout; and prolific developer of shopping centers and office buildings-including CityPlace, Connecticut´s tallest skyscraper-Bronson embodies the self-made business success story. Gripping from beginning to end, The War at the Shore is a rare up-close look at the world of casino development and the essential modern chapter in the history of America´s ´´Boardwalk Empire´´. 1.
