Meredith Mason Brown traces Daniel Boone's life from his Pennsylvania childhood to his experiences in the militia and his rise as an unexcelled woodsman, explorer, and backcountry leader. In the process, we meet the authentic Boone: he didn't wear coonskin caps; he read and wrote better than many frontiersmen; he was not the first to settle Kentucky; he took no pleasure in killing Indians. At once a loner and a leader, a Quaker who became a skilled frontier fighter, Boone is a study in contradictions.

I love history in the United States. I always have. I grew up watching films in school and at home and loved this idea about Daniel Boone. But of course you can always lose track of what's true and what's not when Hollywood is involved. This book explains so much about his life and the development of our country and so many intricate ways that it's really open my eyes about the truth behind the founding of our country and the complexities that we faced over the years. Most importantly that even the most honest and good-hearted man will continuously find themselves being taken advantage of if they are not able to understand the system that surrounds them. But, like many of us today, we can lead a simple life and be happy if we just do what we love and be content with it.

Meet the galaxy's unluckiest outlaws. Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy fighter pilot turned con man. His ship, the Mobius, is home to a ragtag crew of misfits and refugees looking to score a big payday but more often just scratching to pay for fuel. The crew consists of his ex-wife (and pilot), a drunkard, four-handed mechanic, a xeno-predator with the disposition of a 120kg housecat, and the galaxy's most-wanted wizard.

this book and series was amazing. I'm a long-term Firefly fan and it was great to be immersed in the universe where I felt like that crew and show was still alive and well. the narration was great all the stories were great and very detailed. I enjoy books and I enjoy audiobooks too but this one really has a special place. he better get his ass working on the next ones

Listen as Frank tells in his own inimitable voice his story of how at the age of 19 he traveled from Limerick to New York in pursuit of the American dream. Despite the abundance of unsolicited advice he gets to "join the cops" and "stick to his own kind", Frank knows that he should educate himself and somehow rise above his circumstances.
