    In Old Man River, Paul Schneider tells the story of the river at the center of America's rich history - the Mississippi. Some fifteen thousand years ago, the majestic river provided Paleolithic humans with the routes by which early man began to explore the continent's interior. Since then, the river has been the site of historical significance, from the arrival of Spanish and French explorers in the 16th century to the Civil War. George Washington fought his first battle near the river, and Ulysses S. Grant and William T. Sherman both came to President Lincoln's attention after their spectacular victories on the lower Mississippi.

    Told in the lovers' own voices, this audiobook offers verisimilitude and drama to match Truman Capote's In Cold Blood. Strictly nonfiction---no dialogue or other material has been made up---and set in the dirt-poor Texas landscape that spawned the star-crossed outlaws, the brilliantly researched and dramatically crafted tale opens with a murderous jail break and ends with the ambush and shoot-out that consigned their bullet-riddled bodies to the front seat of a hopped-up getaway car.

    Leben und Lieben im Alter ist Thema dieses Features, das Einblick in ein Weimarer Pflegeheim gewährt und Paare begleitet, die hier gemeinsam ihren Lebensabend verbringen. Respektvoll und einfühlsam berichtet Paula Schneider in ihrem Feature über den Alltag der fünf portraitierten Paare, die getrennt oder gemeinsam die letzten Schritte gehen. Sie kennen sich bereits ein Leben lang oder haben erst hier zueinander gefunden, aber sie alle erleben den gegenseitigen Halt und Schutz, den sie sich inmitten der zuweilen einsamen Umgebung geben können.
