    Bloodthirsty barbarian or benevolent ruler? This profile portrays Attila the Hun as he really was: shrewd, tough and, at times, even thoughtful. A man who, through intelligence and sheer force of character, forged a loose confederation of nomadic tribes into the most fearsome military machine of its time.

    More like Attila The Sweetheart, it is said that on hot summer days when the tribes didnt really feel like fighting, Attila would make ice cold lemonade for both armies. And when his tride won a battle, Attila would buy everybody ice cream and provide them each a slave for foot and back rubs. That Attila, ...heck of a swell guy!

In the swamplands he meets Arden Halliday, a young woman who bears the vivid burdens of her own past, and who is searching for a legendary faith healer called the Bright Girl. Looking for simple kindness in a world that rarely shows it, bound by a loyalty stronger than love, Dan and Arden set off on a journey of relentless suspense and impassioned discovery....

    Story

    Gone South and Swan Song, by McCammon are Awesome, and both would make Great Movies, in part because his characters are so unique and the stories are REAL, in terms of emotion. I never read the full book of Gone South and i bet the Abridgment chopped the story up a bit, but i thought is it very well done! And will Patton is Awesome! He gets into the characters so much, that i think reading this in book form would be lacking something without him telling the story. Gone South, Great Book! Swan Song, (in my option) Best Book! McCammon underrated and inspiring!.....Great Job!

    From the dawn of the universe to this very day, Satan is believed to roam the earth, vowing to destroy man. Where there is light, Satan brings darkness. Where there is peace, he wages war. Where he finds love, he ushers in hate. This program tells the story of the fallen angel Lucifer, the light bearer, who became keeper of darkness.

    Damn!!!!!!!! Whats up?!, super non-insightful Biography! If you have never heard of the Devil, and have lived in a hole your whole life, than by all means, buy this recording.
    But if you are a normal human, save your 66 Bean Pennies!
    Seriously, Most A&E Bios. all great! But this seems to just repeat the same facts everybody who has a vague idea of religion knows.
    I thought a Biography on Satan would have much deeper insight as to the myth of Satan and its creation, especially from other cultures. And another thing, the Bio. Seem to suggest that the majority of people actually believe in "The Devil" and his effect on mankind. which is non-sense, Everyone knows the reptilian over lords are our true masters, and we are their servents. I'm just saying this recording could have mentioned a blood orgy or two to spice things up.....
