Calvin Coolidge is one of the most underrated presidents America ever had. Rather than reckon with his own words and on his own terms, however, it has become easier to caricature and dismiss him. The real record Coolidge achieved reveals a far more successful administrator, a principled constitutionalist, a much better leader than usually recognized, and a methodically independent - even non-conventional - thinker. The power of his ideas and practical experience over a lifetime in politics, holding nearly every office from city council to the White House, exemplifies not merely a great example of public service but also a stirring call to higher citizenship from each of us. As the 2016 elections approach, America needs the benefit of his many insights, the guidance of his solid grasp of human nature, and the strength of his moral example. This audiobook is not only for candidates and those who already hold office in the public trust, but also for voters to examine every campaign, test its participants. It´s for those who want to see past the empty promises, campaign posturing, and good intentions so often masking the true from the false, the vapid from the substantive, and the opportunist from the statesman or woman. Calvin Coolidge, anything but ´´silent,´´ has much to teach, if we are ready to learn. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel L. Wright, Mary Jefford Wright, Emily Jefford.

It’s December in Boston, and Spenser is busy planning the menu for Christmas dinner when he’s confronted in his office by a young boy named Slide. Homeless and alone, Slide has found refuge with an organization named Street Business, which gives shelter and seeks job opportunities for the homeless and lost. Slide’s mentor, Jackie Alvarez, is being threatened, and Street Business is in danger of losing its tenuous foothold in the community, turning Slide and many others like him back on the street. But it’s not a simple case of intimidation - Spenser, aided by Hawk, finds a trail that leads to a dangerous drug kingpin, whose hold on the at-risk community Street Business serves threatens not just the boys’ safety and security, but their lives as well. Unfinished at the time of his death, Silent Night was completed by Parker’s longtime agent, whose decades-long association with Parker’s work gives her unique insight and perspective to his voice and storytelling style. Her contribution also speaks volumes about their enduring friendship. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Mantegna. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/003655/bk_rand_003655_sample.mp3.

Before the railroad´s thin lines of steel bit their way up through the wilderness, Athabasca Landing was the picturesque threshold over which one must step who would enter into the mystery and adventure of the great white North. It is still Iskwatam - the ´´door´´ which opens to the lower reaches of the Athabasca, the Slave, and the Mackenzie. It is somewhat difficult to find on the map, yet it is there, because its history is written in more than 140 years of romance and tragedy and adventure in the lives of men, and is not easily forgotten. Over the old trail it was about 150 miles north of Edmonton. The railroad has brought it nearer to that base of civilization, but beyond it the wilderness still howls as it has howled for a thousand years, and the waters of a continent flow north and into the Arctic Ocean. It is possible that the beautiful dream of the real-estate dealers may come true, for the most avid of all the sportsmen of the earth, the money-hunters, have come up on the bumpy railroad that sometimes lights its sleeping cars with lanterns, and with them have come typewriters, and stenographers, and the art of printing advertisements, and the Golden Rule of those who sell handfuls of earth to hopeful purchasers thousands of miles away - ´´Do others as they would do you.´´ And with it, too, has come the legitimate business of barter and trade, with eyes on all that treasure of the North which lies between the Grand Rapids of the Athabasca and the edge of the polar sea. 1.

Wyoming rancher Quinn McKay thought he´d only have to bide time until his level-headed wife came to her senses and called a halt to this ´´trial separation´´. He never believed the marital rough patch would drag on for a coon´s age. Libby McKay knew when she married the gruff, laid-back cowboy that he wasn’t prone to blathering about his feelings. But three months have passed and her stubborn-as-a-mule husband is still living by himself in the horse trailer. It seems he’d rather hold on to his pride than hold on to her. Quinn realizes Libby is determined to move on if he doesn´t loosen his tongue and he’ll lose the only woman he´s ever loved. In a last-ditch effort to keep her in his life, he offers her one weekend of uninterrupted sexual decadence. Reigniting the passion is easy. The hard part comes after the sheets have cooled and they find out if what remains is strong enough to survive past mistakes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Estrella.
