In ´´The Book of Art for Young People´´ Agnes Ethel Conway provides an overview of the history of art from the 13th to the 19th century.Excerpt from the book:´´Almost the pleasantest thing in the world is to be told a splendid story by a really nice person. If I might choose the person to tell me the kind of story I like to listen to, and hear told to me over and over again, it would be some one who could draw pictures for me while talking. But my story-teller should not only draw the pictures while he talked, but he should paint them too. Now, the old pictures you see in the picture galleries are just like that, only the people that painted them didn’t invent the stories but merely illustrated stories which, at the time those painters lived, every one knew. Unfortunately all the pictures in the galleries weren’t painted just for you and me; but you’ll find, if you look for them, plenty that were, and the rest don’t matter.´´Agnes Ethel Conway (1885-1950) was a British historian and archaeologist who worked in the Middle East from 1929-1936. She was noted for her work with her husband George Horsfield at Petra and Kilwa. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Taylor Pepper.

Raging River, priestess of the Sun People, has just done the unthinkable. The Sun People are bound by an ancient law, left by the long-vanished Sky People: They must never kill. To other tribes, who have no such law, the Sun People are easy prey who will not defend themselves. Their game is poached, their stores raided, their women abducted, their men are killed for sport. But when Raging River and her sister are attacked by a Wolf People raiding party, River fights back and kills one of the warriors. Worse, she has killed the son of their chief. Now, with the Wolf People vowing revenge and her people facing annihilation, River must do the impossible. She must prove herself as priestess. She must find the mythical Sky People. The Sky People is a fast-paced novella of revenge and redemption that explores new territory for number-one international best seller Terry Goodkind. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mia Barron.

Henry Culyer Bunner is considered a comedic genius of the short story form. Known for choosing distinctly American themes and characters, his stories are often seen as trivial, merely expanded anecdotes, yet they are so vitally treated that they grip and remain, and, often, lift and chasten. Here is ´´The Nice People,´´ one of his best known sketches - a story of people, assumptions, and societal expectations. Proceeds from sale of this title go to Reach Out and Read, an innovative literacy advocacy organization. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott O´Neill.
