It seemed to me Ruth's entire life was predestined. How else can you explain the meteoric rise from anonymity at St. Mary's Industrial School to heights never before or since attained by a baseball player?

Fresh from West Point, Second Lieutenant Marcus Cavanaugh arrives with a platoon of recruits from the East into territory seething with Indian trouble. Two Eagles and his renegade band of Cheyenne warriors have broken the peace, raiding railroad crews and wagon trains, slaughtering men, women, and children, then disappearing into the hills. Scouting for Two Eagles' war party, Cavanaugh, at last, discovers their winter village, barely escaping with his life to report back to the fort. But nothing in his military training has prepared him for the danger he encounters.

In the milky mountains, upon the lofty summit known as Altar Peak, stand the spacious and somber ruins of a monastery once famous as the ARK. Traditions would link it with an antiquity so hoary as the Flood. Numerous legends have been woven about the Ark, but the one most current on the tongues of local mountaineers among whom I chanced to spend a certain summer in the shade of Altar Peak is the following: Many years after the great Deluge, Noah and his family, and his family’s increase, drifted into the Milky Mountains.

The first part of this audiobook comprises several lectures to classes delivered by the present author in New York. The second part is a rather free translation of the aphorisms (sutras) of Patanjali, with a running commentary. Effort has been made to avoid technicalities as far as possible and to keep to the free and easy style of conversation.

The purpose of existence: No one can follow it down through the ages without realizing that the whole purpose of existence is growth. Life is dynamic - not static. It is ever moving forward - not standing still. The one unpardonable sin of nature is to stand still, to stagnate. It is for men and women who are not ready to stand still, who refuse to cease to grow, that this book is written. It will give you a clearer understanding of your own potentialities, show you how to work with and take advantage of the infinite energy all about you.

Walk with me, the guiding voice of Father consciousness at the center of your soul, and I will lead you gently onward and raise your thoughts to the height of truth. I am the Light of Life within you, and I have continued to shine through all the darkness of your manifold experiences - but your darkness has comprehended me not. I am also the Light of the world and the power thereof by which it was made.

Where does The Door of Everything rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book came to me at the perfect time in my life. I was so stuck on the dark side of the door with no seeming way through. It gave me a simple life changing key and opened the door in my mind that i had come to think did not exist. I am so grateful.

The Law of Success (originally The Law of Success in 16 Lessons) is the title of Napoleon Hill's first book set, published initially in 1928 as a multi-volume correspondence course and later more compact formats in recent years. The work was originally commissioned at the request of Andrew Carnegie at the conclusion of a multi-day interview with Hill, and was based upon interviews of over 100 American millionaires across nearly 20 years.

This book has been around a long time, almost a hundred years, yet it is still so relevant to success in life. A friend of mine kept telling me listen to this version please. So I did. It took me two months as it is a long journey, but it filled me with a new sense of direction each day I drove to work. Thanks a million.

Would you consider the audio edition of Chapters of Life to be better than the print version?

I found the audio version easier to understand. Like the author himself was conveying the stories and teachings.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found the discussions about death very enlightening . . . and comforting.
