The Irish-American story, with all its twists and triumphs, is told through the improbable life of one man. A dashing young orator during the Great Famine of the 1840s, in which a million of his Irish countrymen died, Thomas Francis Meagher led a failed uprising against British rule, for which he was banished to a Tasmanian prison colony. He escaped and six months later was heralded in the streets of New York - the revolutionary hero, back from the dead, at the dawn of the great Irish immigration to America.

biography is a topic that can be lumped into an educational category and therefore too 'informational' to be gripoing for sure. some biographies are a stretch to keep interesting of course, but how could a life such as Thomas Marr ever be less than thrilling? well expectations were met in this expert telling of a harrowing life lead by a passionate and fearless man... it made me wish I was Irish. great work.

if you are Christian or interested in what the power of the name of Jesus can do for you, this book is a work of condensed, experience-based and Bible-backed text book on overcoming demonic powers and staying free from them. I anticipate many good outcomes from putting this knowledge into practice. BRILLIANT!!

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

This was the best red (should I say acted?) audio book ever. Really well done (should I say performed?). I'll hear it again and probably buy the book and read it myself too. Then I'll watch the movie and do it all over again. I highly recommend this book.

In the best-selling tradition of Bill Bryson and Tony Horwitz, Rinker Buck's The Oregon Trail is a major work of participatory history: an epic account of traveling the entire 2,000-mile length of the Oregon Trail the old-fashioned way, in a covered wagon with a team of mules - which hasn't been done in a century - that also tells the rich history of the trail, the people who made the migration, and its significance to the country.

Filled with action, adventure, mystery, and historical detail, the Sackett saga is an unforgettable achievement by one of America's greatest storytellers. In Galloway, two brothers must struggle to survive in a wild and beautiful land to build themselves a ranch and a future.

This is my favorite of the Sackett series. These brothers don't seem to be a menace but sure can carry their weight when called to. Great tale.

Tell Sackett had been lured into the Apache's mountain stronghold by the icy beauty of his brother's wife. He didn't go alone. John J. Battles, Spanish Murphy, and the half-breed Tampico rode beside him. Each was driven by his past to test his speed and cunning against an enemy who could smell a white man a mile away, and then shoot his eyes out at a dead gallop. It was a contest few men could enter, and fewer still could hope to win.
