Most people have heard of the Celts - the elusive, ancient tribal people who resided in present-day England, Ireland, Scotland and France. Paradoxically characterized as both barbaric and innocent, the Celts appeal to the modern world as a symbol of a bygone era, a world destroyed by the ambition of empire and the spread of Christianity throughout Western Europe. Despite the pervasive cultural and literary influence of the Celts, shockingly little is known of their way of life and beliefs, because very few records of their stories exist.

It turns very pro christian at the end. It begins with a noah and the ark flood story then quickly goes into celtic myths, but when catholicism enters the picture the autor begins aggressively calling druids evil.

Do you make goals yet get discouraged when your plans don't work? We all know those people who seemingly were born to succeed. Fitness, health, business - they achieve all their goals. You want that success and know you can get it... but how?

I didn't realize I could return books until it was too late. This author hasn't done anything worth mentioning and advises you to sleep on you porch or take could showers to impr0ve yourself. A monthly fitness magazine would help you more than this awfully narrated book.

In The Worst Hard Time, Timothy Egan put the environmental disaster of the Dust Bowl at the center of a rich history, told through characters he brought to indelible life. Now he performs the same alchemy with The Big Burn, the largest-ever forest fire in America, a tragedy that cemented Teddy Roosevelt's legacy.

Loved it from minute one. A great story of our public lands and what it takes to conserve them.

Traumatized by the bombing of Dresden at the time he had been imprisoned, Pilgrim drifts through all events and history, sometimes deeply implicated, sometimes a witness. He is surrounded by Vonnegut's usual large cast of continuing characters (notably here the hack science fiction writer Kilgore Trout and the alien Tralfamadorians, who oversee his life and remind him constantly that there is no causation, no order, no motive to existence).

James Franco did a terrible job. Practically monotone. Audible could've gotten anybody to better than this.
