Kearny and Donny MacGregor are famous hoaxers whose lineage can be traced to a long line of conmen and tricksters. Hours before the brothers perform a successful crop circle hoax, they are approached about creating an Earth light hoax for the mayor of Stony Creek, the Bigfoot capital of northern California. Earth light is a general term used to describe unknown lights in the sky, and the mayor of Stony Creek believes that this second "phenomenon" will help pull the town from its revenue slump. After several successful Earth light hoaxes, a loose group of truth seekers forms, lead by Sheriff Nicki Stanford and local Bigfoot debunker Possum, and the chase is on. 1. Language: English.

For a moment children get to leave this noisy and hectic world and submerge their formative imaginations into a timeless world of natural beauty and truth. Meet Johnny Chuck, who finds the best thing in the world while Billy the Mink is having a swimming party. Find out who saves Mrs. Redwing's speckled eggs and why Old Man Coyote has many voices. The stars of our adventures are the jovial Johnny Chuck, rascally Reddy Fox, cautious Bobby Coon, curious Peter Rabbit, wise Grandfather Frog, unhurried Jimmy Skunk, boastful Chatterer the Red Squirrel, dear Danny Meadow Mouse, stout Unc' Billy Possum, bossy Sammy Jay, cunning Blacky the Crow, fun-loving Billy Mink, friendly Jerry Muskrat, and Little Joe Otter - and let's not forget Old Mother West Wind, the Laughing Brook, the Smiling Pool, the Merry Little Breezes, the Purple Hills, and the Lone Little Path winding through the Green Meadows and wise old Mother Nature. Thornton W. Burgess, who shares his deep reverence for mother nature with his young listeners, got it right when he wrote stories about his local forests and meadows, brooks and ponds, and all the little animals that live, nest, and feed there. Through his stories children get to know and love animals and their habitats and learn important lessons from their lives and adventures - from problem solving to conflict resolution to the joy of discovery. They learn about the interconnected nature of community and the value each individual member brings to it. The animals are shown to live in a way rarely witnessed today - in a whole and united world. Their adventures will come alive via audiobooks narrated by prominent and engaging voices and celebrities. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Mensah.

Andrew Zimmern, the host of The Travel Channel's hit series Bizarre Foods, has an extraordinarily well-earned reputation for traveling far and wide to seek out and sample anything and everything that's consumed as food globally, from cow vein stew in Bolivia and giant flying ants in Uganda to raw camel kidneys in Ethiopia, putrefied shark in blood pudding in Iceland and Wolfgang Puck's Hunan style rooster balls in Los Angeles.For Zimmern, local cuisine - bizarre, gross, or downright stomach-turning as it may be to us - is not simply what's served at mealtime. It is a primary avenue to discovering what is most authentic - the bizarre truth - about cultures everywhere.Having eaten his way around the world over the course of four seasons of Bizarre Foods, Zimmern has now launched Bizarre Worlds, a new series on the Travel Channel, and this, his first book, a chronicle of his journeys as he not only tastes the "taboo treats" of the world, but delves deep into the cultures and lifestyles of far-flung locales and seeks the most prized of the modern traveler's goals: The Authentic Experience. Written in the smart, often hilarious voice he uses to narrate his TV shows, Zimmern uses his adventures in "culinary anthropology" to illustrate such themes as: why visiting local markets can reveal more about destinations than museums; the importance of going to "the last stop on the subway" - the most remote area of a place where its essence is most often revealed; the need to seek out and catalog "the last bottle of coca-cola in the desert", i.e. disappearing foods and cultures; the profound differences between dining and eating; and the pleasures of snout to tail, local, fresh and organic food. Zimmern takes listeners into the back of a souk in Morocco where locals are eating a whole roasted lamb; along with a conch fisherman in Tobago, who may be the last of his kind; and to Mississippi, where he dines on raccoon and possum. 1.

For Zimmern, local cuisine — bizarre, gross or downright stomach turning as it may be to us -- is not simply what's served at mealtime. It is a primary avenue to discovering what is most authentic — the bizarre truth — about cultures everywhere. Having eaten his way around the world over the course of four seasons of Bizarre Foods, Zimmern has now launched Bizarre Worlds, a new series on the Travel Channel, and this, his first book, a chronicle of his journeys as he not only tastes the 'taboo treats” of the world, but delves deep into the cultures and lifestyles of far-flung locales and seeks the most prized of the modern traveler's goals: The Authentic Experience. Written in the smart, often hilarious voice he uses to narrate his TV shows, Zimmern uses his adventures in 'culinary anthropology” to illustrate such themes as: why visiting local markets can reveal more about destinations than museums; the importance of going to 'the last stop on the subway” — the most remote area of a place where its essence is most often revealed; the need to seek out and catalog 'the last bottle of coca-cola in the desert,” i.e. disappearing foods and cultures; the profound differences between dining and eating; and the pleasures of snout to tail, local, fresh and organic food. Zimmern takes readers into the back of a souk in Morocco where locals are eating a whole roasted lamb; along with a conch fisherman in Tobago, who may be the last of his kind; to Mississippi, where he dines on raccoon and possum. There, he writes, 'People said, 'That's roadkill!' 'No it's not,' I said. 'It's a cultural story.'” Whether it's a session with an Incan witch doctor in Ecuador who blows fire on him, spits on him, thrashes him with poisonous branches and beats him with a live guinea pig or drinking blood in Uganda and cow urine tonic in India or eating roasted bats on an uninhabited island in Samoa, Zimmern cheerfully celebrates the undiscovered destinations and weird wonders still remaining in our increasingly globalized world.
