From the ´´Trail of Tears” to Wounded Knee and Little Bighorn, the narrative of American history is incomplete without the inclusion of the Native Americans that lived on the continent before European settlers arrived in the 16th and 17th centuries. Since the first contact between natives and settlers, tribes like the Sioux, Cherokee, and Navajo have both fascinated and perplexed outsiders with their history, language, and culture. In Charles River Editors´ Native American Tribes series, readers can get caught up to speed on the history and culture of North America´s most famous native tribes in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. The Navajo are one of the most famous tribes in the United States, even though many of the important events in the people´s history have been overlooked with the passage of time. Still one of the biggest Native American groups in America, the Navajo are typically associated with the Southwest and other tribes like the Pueblo, and they are popularly remembered for the Code Talkers of World War II, who used the Navajo language to provide the American military with a code that could not be deciphered by enemy cryptologists. Unfortunately, the 19th century was full of hardships for the Navajo, particularly as American settlers pushed west in the later stages of the 1800s. They engaged in conflicts with the Americans, but eventually they had to make the Long Walk, a march of more than 300 miles from their homes to a reservation. Like the Cherokee´s Trail of Tears, the Long Walk was an unmitigated disaster for the Navajo, who only suffered more adversity in the years after the Long Walk as their lands and livelihoods were reduced. 1.

The 92nd Street Y has gathered scholars and authorities to discuss the questions and issues raised in Dan Brown´s The Da Vinci Code. What are the implications for religion and private faith when talk about God moves into pop culture, and popular entertainment becomes a mode of education? Never has this topic been more relevant than when a book like The Da Vinci Code is treated as fact rather than fiction. Panelists also touch on the early Christian church, the role of women in the early church, the objectives of organizations like Opus Dei and how the Christian church has changed through the ages. Dan Burstein is an award-winning journalist, author, and venture capitalist, and is the editor of Secrets of the Code. Bart D. Ehrman chairs the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and wrote The Truth Behind The Da Vinci Code: A Historian Reveals What We Really Know About Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Constantine. Linda Ruf is a spokeswoman for the Catholic group Opus Dei and has been a member of the group for more than 20 years. Phyllis Tickle is the former religion editor at Publishers Weekly, the author of more than two dozen books and an expert in the field of religion and popular culture. This event took place on February 27, 2005. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phyllis Tickle. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/sp/nsty/000025/sp_nsty_000025_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

From the cohost of Fox & Friends, the true story of the anonymous spies who helped win the Revolutionary War. Among the pantheon of heroes of the American Revolution, six names are missing. First and foremost, Robert Townsend, an unassuming and respected businessman from Long Island, who spearheaded the spy ring that covertly brought down the British…before they, or anyone else, could discover their names. Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger finally give Townsend and his fellow spies their proper due, telling the fascinating story of how they passed information to George Washington that turned the tide of the war. Using a network of citizen operatives that included a longshoreman, bartender, newspaper editor, housewife, tailor, and femme fatale, and employing a series of complex codes, the so-called Culper Spy Ring used sophisticated tactics to subvert the British. Based on previously unpublished research, George Washington´s Secret Six is a gripping history of these amazing, anonymous Patriots who risked their lives for our freedom. 1. Language: English.
