              The Kings family has lived on Loosewood Island for three hundred years, and they ve been blessed with the bounty of the sea. But for the Kingses, every blessing comes with a curse. Woody Kings, the leader of the island s lobster fishing community and the family patriarch, teeters... on the throne. Cordelia, the oldest of Woody s three daughters, stands to inherit the crown after the death of her brother. To do so, however, she has to fend off meth dealers from the mainland while navigating sibling rivalry and the vulnerable nature of her own heart when she falls in love with her sternman. A love story and a modern epic in the grand Shakespearean vein that introduces a fiery and unforgettable heroine, The Lobster Kings is the story of Cordelia s struggle to maintain her island s way of life in the face of danger from offshore and the rich, looming, mythic legacy of her family s namesake.

              What do we look for in our heroes of today? And what are we to expect of heroes in our uncertain future? In this book, Gibbon traces the evolution of our collective vision of greatness from the age of our founders to today's celebrity-obsessed media age. Among history's exemplary... men and women who have sacrificed for causes greater than themselves he includes not only traditional civic heroes, such as George Washington, but also heroes of ideas and conscience: scientists, educators, religious leaders, and activists. Also discussed are monuments and artworks dedicated to heroes to examine what these memorials say about the America of their time and to us today. Gibbon concludes that, although our reverence for ideals may have eroded, we now have a unique opportunity to forge a new understanding of what it means to be a hero.

              A 2007 Audie Award NomineeOne of AudioFile's Best Audiobooks of 2006 Muhammed Ali and Howard Cosell, a legendary athlete and a television icon, were individually interesting, but together they were mesmerizing. They were profoundly different--young and old, black and white, a Mus...lim and a Jew, Ali barely literate, Cosell an editor of his university's law review. Yet they had in common forces that made them unforgettable. Both were unprecedented performers who covered enormous insecurities by demanding, loudly and often, public acclaim. Theirs was an extraordinary alliance that produced drama, comedy, controversy, and a mutual respect that helped shape both men's lives. Dave Kindred draws on his experiences with Ali and Cosell over nearly four decades, as well as new reporting and interviews, to break new ground in our understanding of these two giants who changed sports and television forever.
