Color Blind: The Forgotten Team That Broke Base...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

During the Great Depression, out in drought stricken North Dakota, one of the most improbable teams in the history of baseball was put together by one of the sport's most unlikely champions. In Bismarck, a decade before Jackie Robinson broke into the Major Leagues, car dealer Neil Churchill signed the best players he could find, regardless of race, and fielded an integrated squad that took on all comers in spectacular fashion. Color Blind, from award-winning journalist Tom Dunkel, tells this remarkable, largely forgotten story. When baseball swept America in the years after the Civil War, independent, semi-pro, and municipal leagues sprouted up everywhere. Color Blind immerses the reader in the wild and wonderful world of independent baseball, with its tough competition and its novelty - from all-brother teams and a prison team (who only played home games, naturally) to one from a religious commune that sported Old Testament beards. Dunkel traces the rise of the Bismarck squad, and follows them through their ups and downs, focusing on the 1935 season, and the first National Semi-Pro Tournament in Wichita, Kansas. This is an entertaining, must-listen audiobook for anyone interested in the history of baseball. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ben Bartolone.

The Complete Exploits of Doc Turner, Volume 5 ,...

Doc Turner was one of the least likely heroes that appeared in the pulp magazine stories. He was a little old pharmacist who ran a drug store in the slums of New York, where just about everyone came to him when they had problems. Oh, and what problems they had! Werewolves and vampires mixed in with extortionists and gangsters. And solve their problems he did, with the aid of his strapping red-headed assistant, mechanic Jack Ransom, and his young stock boy Abe Ginsberg. These short stories appeared in the back pages of The Spider magazine, a grand total of 70 of them. Every single one can be found in this collection; not a one is missing. "Killer’s Circus": Doc Turner's little orphan had been swallowed by that crime-carousel - ensnared by a freak who made over humans into his own ghastly image. But the Doc knew a trick - how to make them over again. "The Devil’s Candlestick": Doc Turner had to act fast when his small assistant was snatched by a fire-bug Fagin who had a fiendish formula for turning boys into human torches! "Doc Turner and the Crimson Coffin": Into Doc Turner's little settlement drove that terrible hearse with its coffin death-trap for the poor. Only the little druggist could hope to beat this ruthless racket - by making a corpse rise, of its own volition, from the grave! "Doc Turner’s Coffin Cure": It was the Crusher who had come to Doc Turner's poverty-stricken neighborhood, leaving in his wake human heads smashed to pulp! Only the little Doctor had a way to check that horror-epidemic — by fighting a killer with a corpse! "The Cat from Hell": Upon the defenseless poor, that awesome feline slayer sprang - leaving unclaimed corpses in its wake. But Doc Turner, who had cured the poverty-stricken living, knew how to unleash the relentless fury of the dead! "Death Rocks the Cradle": One by one the children of the poor had died - victims of their own tiny hands. But Doc Turner was 1. Language: English. Narrator: David K. Aycock.

The year is 1978. The Duncan brothers and their tough-as-nails women have vanquished their rivals and taken their place as the leaders of Waycross, Georgia's criminal enterprises. However, their rise to power has not gone unnoticed, and the family is rocked when their mother, Miss Bettie, is kidnapped and her body is found in a swamp. No one knows who the killers are, but instead of drawing closer, the family is split when their grief-stricken leader, LC, is offered membership in the South's most powerful black organization, the Council. Membership has its privileges, but they do not include his brothers. LC packs up his growing family and moves to Atlanta to open his first car dealership. Unable to deal with their mother's death, Lou Duncan searches for her killers with the help of an unlikely ally - LC's ex-fiancée. Her presence may cost him his relationship with his brothers, but Lou is resigned to that fact because Donna's help is instrumental in finding Ms. Bettie's abductors. What he will soon learn is that his search for the truth will also lead him to discover a long-buried Duncan family secret. 1. Language: English. Narrator: L.

Elements of the Undead: Books One - Three , Hör...

For a while, it seemed as if the good times would never end, that mankind had truly become masters of our own universe, gods in our own right. Little did we know, our time was almost up. No one knows where it started. No one knows why. By the time the scientists figured out what was happening, it was already too late. Most of humanity perished in the first few weeks, stricken down by a fast-moving infection, only to rise up as a zombie with an insatiable hunger for human flesh. Millions burned to ash when the military rained fire on the cities in a futile effort to halt the contagion. Millions more simply lay down and gave up, unable, or perhaps unwilling, to exist in a world no longer fit for human occupancy. Despite all the death and destruction, there were survivors, brave men and women who stared into the face of annihilation and chose instead, to live. Together, they set about to rebuild civilization, to create something new and permanent out of the ruins of what came before. This is their story... This omnibus combines the three Elements of the Undead books in a single volume. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephanie Bentley.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

German poet Anja Kampmann's award-winning debut novel is the dazzling, heart-rending story of an oil rig worker whose closest friend goes missing, plunging him into isolation and forcing him to confront his past One night aboard an oil drilling platform in the Atlantic, Waclaw returns to his cabin to find that his bunkmate and companion, Mätyäs, has gone missing. A search of the rig confirms his fear that Mätyäs has fallen into the sea. Grief-stricken, he embarks on an epic emotional and physical journey that takes him to Morocco, to Budapest and Mätyäs's hometown in Hungary, to Malta, Italy, and finally to the mining town of his childhood in Germany. Waclaw's encounters along the way with other lost and yearning souls - Mätyäs's angry, grieving half-sister; lonely rig workers on shore leave; a truck driver who watches the world change from his driver's seat - bring us closer to his origins while also revealing the problems of a globalized economy dependent on waning natural resources. High as the Waters Rise is a stirring exploration of male intimacy, the nature of memory and grief, and the cost of freedom - the story of a man who stands at the margins of a society from which he has profited little, though its functioning depends on his labor.

A Specter of Justice: The Sam Blackman Mysterie...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

When private detective Sam Blackman agrees to help his partner and lover, Nakayla Robertson, conduct a fundraiser for orphaned twins, he does so to ease his conscience. The boys' parents were killed in a courtroom shootout where Sam was the key witness against the twins' father. The charity event, a nighttime ghost tour of the legendary haunted sites of Asheville, North Carolina, seems harmless enough. Sam only has to tell the story of a grief-stricken woman who hanged herself from an old, arched stone bridge. "Helen, come forth," he cries. Sam and his tourgoers expect the actress playing Helen's ghost to walk toward them from the bridge's dark recesses. Instead, her body tumbles from overhead and dangles at the end of a noose. Someone has reenacted the legend with deadly authenticity. When a second murder mimics another old ghost tale, the police fear a macabre serial killer is on the prowl. But the case isn't Sam's to solve. Then, a tidal wave of evidence begins to point to one man - Sam's friend, defense attorney Hewitt Donaldson. Sam and Nakayla, firmly believing in Donaldson's innocence, must not only prove it but halt a murderer seemingly bent on retribution. Does the killer's motivation rise from the present, or is Team Donaldson dealing with some specter from the past? 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dufris.
