Mother Angelica - The Remarkable Story of a Nun (Audio Book)
In 1981, the year after Ted Turner founded CNN, a simple nun using her entrepreneurial instincts and $200 for seed money, launched what would become the world's largest religious media empire in the garage of a Birmingham, Alabama monastery. Today, EWTN offers twenty-four hours of English and Spanish television programming reaching 105 million viewers around the globe. How did a crippled nun achieve so much and reach so many? Born Rita Rizzo in Canton, Ohio, in 1923, Mother Angelica was abandoned by her father and raised in poverty by a mother who suffered suicidal depressions. Awakened to the power of prayer, at age 21 she vowed to dedicate her life to God and become a cloistered nun. She expected to spend her life hidden from the world. But Rita's faith compelled her to unlikely endeavors, accomplishing what the highest echelon of the Catholic Church could not. Raymond Arroyo was given unprecedented access to Mother Angelica's letters, diaries, medical records, family, friends and foes, as well as one-on-one interviews over a three-year period. This engrossing biography traces Mother Angelica's tortured rise to success and exposes for the first time the fierce opposition she faced, inside and outside of her church. It is an inspiring story of survival and proof that one woman's faith can move more than mountains. Only weeks after completing the final interview for this biography, Mother Angelica suffered a stroke that stole her speech. Within are her reflections, her powerful life lessons and thoughts on her remarkable life. Includes 8 pages of pictures! "A rattling good story of fear, faith, courage, and bulldog tenacity, beautifully told. The drama of Mother Angelica's life is a powerful reminder that the extraordinary lies just beyond the ordinary - if we have eyes to see and ears to hear." - George Weigel, author of Witness to Hope: the Biography of Pope John Paul II See also: Mother Angelica - The Remarkable Story of a Nun, Her Nerve, and a Network of Miracels (Book) 10 CD Audio Book read by Raymond Arroyo Approx. running time: 13 hours

Doris Herrmann was born deaf in 1933 in Basel, Switzerland, and from the age of three, she possessed a mystical attraction to kangaroos. She recalls seeing them at that age for the first time at the Basel Zoo, and spending every spare moment visiting them from then on. Eventually, her fascination grew into passionate study of their behavior. Her dedication caught the attention of the zookeepers who provided her greater access to these extraordinary animals. Despite her challenges with communication, Herrmann wrote a scientific paper about the kangaroo's pouch hygiene when raising a joey. Soon, experts from around the world came to visit this precocious deaf girl who knew about kangaroos. Herrmann appreciated the opportunities opening up to her, but her real dream was to travel to Australia to study kangaroos in the wild. For years she worked and yearned, until Dr. Karl H. Winkelstrater a renowned authority on kangaroos, suggested an independent study in Australia at a place called Pebbly Beach. In 1969, at the age of 35, Herrmann finally traveled to the native land of kangaroos. During the next four decades, she would make many more trips to observe and write about kangaroos. "My Life with Kangaroos" explores every facet of Herrmann's connection to these engaging marsupials. Her single-minded devotion not only made her a leading self-made scholar on kangaroos, it transformed her own personality and her relationships with others. As she forged bonds with kangaroos named Dora, Jacqueline, Manuela, and many others, she engendered great affection and respect in the people around her, truly a remarkable story of success.

Revere life, and give yours away for the sake of serving others. As a young man, Albert Schweitzer seemed destined for greatness. His immense talent and fortitude propelled him to a place as one of Europe s most renowned philosophers, theologians, and musicians in the early twentieth century. Yet Schweitzer shocked his contemporaries by forsaking worldly success and embarking on an epic journey into the wilds of French Equatorial Africa, vowing to serve as a lifelong physician to the least of these in a mysterious land rife with famine, sickness, and superstition." " Enduring hardship, conflict, and personal struggles, he and his beloved wife, Helene, became French prisoners of war during WWI, and Helene later battled persistent illnesses. Ken Gire s page-turning, novelesque narrative sheds new light on Schweitzer s faith-in-action ethic and his commitment to honor God by celebrating the sacredness of all life. The legacy of this 1952 Nobel Prize honoree endures in the thriving African hospital community that began in a humble chicken coop, in the millions who have drawn inspiration from his example, and in the challenge that emanates from his life story into our day. Albert Schweitzer seemed destined for greatness and he achieved it by making his life his greatest sermon to a world in desperate need of hope and healing.

From the Foreword by Aaron Miller, MD People with MS never know when new symptoms may appear or if improvement will follow. Virtually every therapy for any human disease had been considered and tried, without finding a useful treatment. The development of Copaxone (R) is among the most unique of modern drug discoveries. Not only is it the enduring legacy of brilliant and determined scientists working over decades; it is also the story of The Weizmann Institute of Science and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd, two organizations that grew and prospered in spite of a most chaotic and dangerous environment during the early years of the State of Israel.

$36.95

In September 2010, Alejandro Souza learned that Momo, his cousin and closest friend in the family, was suddenly imprisoned. Crushed by his imprisonment and desiring to infuse him with strength, resilience, and, above all, love, Souza made an unconditional commitment to write Momo one letter each day for as long as he was in jail. "Letters to Momo" is the true, remarkable story about the power to overcome told by the collection of all letters written to Momo during his 144 days in prison-intact and in their original state, exactly as he received them. Uniquely sincere and approachable, the letters' contemplative style illuminates core truths about the human experience and invites all to engage in profound reflection. Through broad thematic examinations spanning from personal experiences to Persian poetry, and from Nietzsche to cognitive psychology, the letters' inspirational tone leads you away from the traps of victimhood to reclaim the innate power to author change in your life. With the closing words of each letter, "I love you with all my heart, and today, let me walk with you," Souza holds our hearts and hands as we embark on our own journey of personal resilience, transcendence, and freedom. Today let these letters walk with you. "It would be unfair for me to call these letters a source of encouragement, because they are far more than that. They are a stream of consciousness sent out as a reminder. They are what you have always known, yet perhaps never understood. These letters are a rekindling." - Momo

What follows is an unfolding sequence that finds Azarov meeting a remarkable Mongolian woman and later discovering the memoirs of one of Russia's greatest poets, Anna Akhmatova, eventually revealing an unlikely love story between the Mongolian woman and Akhmatova's son. This enthralling account serves as both a cultural study and an exploration of the human condition.

Emperor of the North: Sir George Simpson & the Remarkable Story of the Hudson's Bay Company

$11.00
View Product


At its height in the nineteenth century, the Hudson's Bay Company's trading territory covered three million square miles and spanned the continent. And no one person was more responsible for its success than its larger-than-life governor, the remarkable George Simpson. The illegitimate son of a ne'er-do-well Scottish lawyer, Simpson was a master planner who laid the foundations for the greatest business enterprise of its day, a pompous dandy who was most at home in a canoe, and a man who, while ashamed of his out-of-wedlock birth, sired at least thirteen children with eight different women. A wide cast of characters strides through the pages of this gripping story-frontier entrepreneurs, hardy voyageurs, skilled native trappers, intrepid explorers, impoverished settlers, and lords and ladies of the realm-and George Simpson was at home with all of them. The history of the Bay is that of a country in the making, but it is also a history of the clash between different ways of life in a vast, sparsely populated land far from the crowded cities, counting-houses and imperial ambitions of the British Empire.
