In 1900, aged 22, Charles Stewart Rolls was the best known motorist in Britain, better known than Jeremy Clarkson today, having won the ´´Thousand Mile Trial´´ of that year, the event that launched motoring as a practical popular concept. Rolls followed his success in the Trial by racing in highly dangerous inter-city races in Europe. He drove the fastest time ever achieved in Britain, although this was never ratified. At the same time, Rolls ran a large car-sales and service showroom in London, employing 70 staff with space for 200 cars. In the span of six months, he persuaded the secretary of the Automobile Society of Great Britain and Ireland to join him, and then, shortly after, discovered Henry Royce with whom his name is now forever linked. This triumvirate of talented engineers and businessmen took Rolls-Royce Ltd. to the pinnacle of motor and aero engineering that the company has occupied ever since. Rolls helped create the new sport of hot-air ballooning and raced his balloon for his country. He then joined a select band of intrepid pioneers who risked all to prove the theory of powered flight. He was first to fly the English Channel both ways but weeks later perished at the Bournemouth Air Show. Engineer, salesman, aristocrat, pioneer, and businessman, Charles Rolls offers us a timely reminder of British invention, courage, and ingenuity more than 100 years ago. 1. Language: English.

Only the power of Christ´s crucifixion on the cross and the glory of his resurrection can heal the deep racial wounds in both black and white people in America. Here is a real-life story of the transforming power of Jesus Christ and one man´s response to Jesus´ call to love others. John Perkins, founder of Voice of Calvary ministries, was born in New Hebron, Mississippi, in 1930. His family was made up of sharecroppers, and he grew up in grinding poverty, part of a system that preserved prejudice and racism. After his brother was killed, Perkins left Mississippi for California, where he found job opportunities, racism of another kind, and faith in Jesus Christ. He returned to Mississippi to share the gospel and help his own people find equality, justice, and economic independence through self-help cooperative efforts. And he made progress - too much progress.Everything came to a head early in 1970, when John Perkins and others went through an unbelievable night of torture at the hands of white law enforcement officers. Beaten almost to death, Perkins somehow survived and so did his work, which moves ahead today with a threefold strategy: Biblical evangelism and Christian education The kind of social action that should come out of knowing Jesus Christ as savior Visible community development that is creating new models for black housing, economic independence, education, and health care PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1.

It´s February 3, 1959 in Clear Lake, Iowa and Buddy Holly is in town for a big rock ´n roll show. To impress their dates, high school seniors and best friends, Billy and DJ, have ´´borrowed´´ a prized Cadillac belonging to Billy´s uncle who is on vacation in Florida. It´s the perfect time for DJ to try out his new, hand-held tape recorder and bootleg the highly anticipated show. The next morning Billy and DJ hear the tragic news that Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper, while traveling to the next show, have been killed in a plane crash. The Day The Music Died. In yet another twist of fate, the friends soon learn that the Cadillac has been stolen with the last recording of Buddy Holly still hidden under the front seat! Billy and DJ embark on a nail-biting cross-country chase in a frantic hunt to find the stolen Cadillac and the priceless tapes, unaware that they are being hunted too... by rogue agents of the FCC. Along the way, Billy and DJ survive death-defying drag racing and narrowly escape tragedy at every turn, all the while, staying one step ahead of the crooked federal agents who want the tapes as badly as they do. The whole mess is framed in the style of American Graffiti and is a must for classic car and rock ´n roll fans. This coming of age, family friendly nail-biter will keep you guessing through every bend and twisted turn in the road... right up to the end. Will the music live...or die? 1. Language: English.

Car dealers in Norman, a Stillwater newspaper, storm chasers from OU, a bar outside Chickasha, and an automotive chop shop in Harrah are locations featured in Mile of Cars Murders, a new novel by Tulsa writer Joe Harwell that follows a four-year investigation into the disappearance of eight people in central Oklahoma. The Murrah Building bombing and the 1999 Moore tornado are the historical markers for even greater tragedy in the Britton family. Mother and father, Pat and J.P. (Joe Paul, Sr.) leave home early on April 19th, 1995, relying on their capable teenage sons, Joe Paul, Jr., and Dale, to take care of the ranch outside Perkins, and their siblings, nine-year-old Thomas and 11-year-old Henry. After some rocky times, both personally and financially, Pat and J.P. are taking a much needed day together without the kids to do some shopping in Oklahoma City, with plans to return home by eight pm. As news of the Murrah Building bombing breaks, Joe Paul, Jr., isn´t too worried about his parents, since their plans didn´t include being in downtown Oklahoma City. When Thomas falls and breaks his arm after school, Dale calls an ambulance, but can´t reach his parents, who don´t carry a pager or cell phone. Eight o´clock comes and goes and Pat and J.P. aren´t home. When days turn into weeks, months, then years without a trace of them, the Britton boys and other families in central Oklahoma discover an awful truth. A lot of people didn´t make it home after the Oklahoma City bombing, but not all of them went missing because of it. With no solid leads for two years, the authorities finally get a break in 1997, jump starting the investigation at a roller coaster pace, which comes to a startling conclusion as the deadly F5 tornado rips through Bridge Creek and Moore in 1999. Mile of Cars Murders is a follow-up to Harwell´s 2012 novel, Payne County Weekly. 1. Language: English. Narrator: W.B. Ward.
