American Legends: The Life of Mary Pickford
At the end of the 20th century, the American Film Institute compiled a list of the 25 greatest actors and actresses in Hollywood over the past 100 years, but only a select few worked all the way back in the silent era of films, before "talkies" revolutionized the industry at the end of the 1920s. Among them was Mary Pickford, who was ranked 24th but was arguably the most influential actress when it came to creating the career template for all actresses who followed, from name changes to salary.

The Great Wall of China: The History of China's Most Famous Landmark
The Great Wall of China is perhaps the wonder of the world that has most captured the human imagination, and as the quotes about it indicate, the wall has acquired special significance even outside of China. The places and ways in which it has taken hold vary greatly, but one thing is certain: the Great Wall of China is as amazing as it is mysterious, and it's as mundane as it is magical.

Tikal: The History of the Ancient Maya's Famous Capital
The Maya maintained power in the Yucatan for over a thousand years, and at the height of its "Classical era" (3rd-9th centuries A.D.), the city of Tikal was one of the power centers of the empire. Archaeologists believe Tikal had been built as early as the 5th or 4th century BC, and eventually it became a political, economic and military capital that was an important part of a far-flung network across Mesoamerica, despite the fact it was seemingly conquered by Teotihuacan in the 4th century AD.

El Dorado: The Search for the Fabled City of Gold
Alongside the famous Lost City of Atlantis, perhaps no mythological city has captured the imaginations of people or been the source for exploration quite like El Dorado, the fabled city of gold that the Spanish believed was located somewhere in South America. The origins of the Spaniards' belief in the existence of the mythical city was based on their rumors surrounding the tribal chief of the Muisca in present-day Colombia; the Spanish heard that his initiation included covering himself with gold dust and diving into Lake Guatavita. Of course, if the chief could cover himself in gold, he must have access to a lot of it, and around this figure, the myth of El Dorado sprang up as the location of it.

Woodstock: The History and Legacy of America's Most Famous Music Festival
The now iconic festival all began with an advertisement in The New York Times taken out by four financial investors. Michael Lang was the manager of a rock band, and Artie Kornfeld served as an executive for Capitol Records, a major label of the time for both classical and non-classical music. Joined by capitalists John Roberts and Joel Rosenman, the ad read simply, "Young men with unlimited capital looking for interesting, legitimate investment opportunities and business propositions." The original idea called for the construction, maintenance and management of a recording studio in the Bethel, Wallkill and Woodstock areas, close to where Bob Dylan and a group called The Band lived. The picturesque setting was first envisioned as a retreat for rock artists, and no thought at all was given to such a prodigious event as the festival that followed. If a live performance was to be held, it would have been staged as a one-day promotion for the studio.

American Legends: The Life of Jim Morrison
In the mid-1960s, an era on the cusp of change from the musical and social norms of the previous decade, the emergence of Jim Morrison, the charismatic poet/musician of The Doors, helped to transform the subgenre of rock n' roll as a stylistic flavor to the full-fledged institution of Rock Music. Morrison accomplished this transformation by avoiding membership in any of the known categories of modern rock music during the age of protest, but at the same time, he became the general symbol of anti-authoritarianism for his generation and the next, especially as rock music began to base itself on the urge of youth to revolt. In conjunction with that, The Doors became one of the most famous bands on the planet in the late `60s.

Sometimes small towns harbor the most sinister secrets. A chance meeting at a café reunites Franki with her old high school classmate, Eli, who has returned to their hometown. Franki is urged by her friend, Ryah, to overcome her bashfulness and pursue him. But Ryah has plans of her own.

He visits her, despite being involved with the emotionally damaged Scarlett, whose secret past threatens to ignite a series of events that could destroy everyone. Narrated through six different perspectives, Perfected Sinfulness exposes the dangerous nature of interpersonal relationships when narcissism and manipulation become the primary modes of interaction.

Shirley Temple, Judy Garland, and Mickey Rooney: Hollywood's Child Stars of the 1930s
Alongside Shirley Temple and Judy Garland, with whom he acted in a series of films, Mickey Rooney was one of America's most beloved child stars during the 1930s. Rooney had already made his mark in A Family Affair (1937), but he was the face of the incredibly successful Andy Hardy series, which produced several box office hits and featured Rooney in 13 movies, several alongside Judy Garland, who shot to fame as a teen in The Wizard of Oz.

Godfrey: Book One
The year is 1920 and Godfrey Leduc has a difficult decision to make. Stay on the family farm in rural Quebec or make the move out West and start his own farm? Family, love, and a bit of humour set against the backdrop of post-WWI Canada make this biography an entertaining read for all ages.

Two families, searching for wealth, adventure, and a new way of life are thrown together in the California goldfields of the 1850s. This is a story of their journeys to this wild frontier and their struggles for survival against bandits, animal attacks, harsh winters, natural disasters and their own personal demons. Whoever possesses the gold nugget talisman has their life influenced by the power of this mysterious stone.

Celtic Blood

The Last Stoic
Marcus, a young man from a northern provincial border town, journeys deep into the heart of the empire and witnesses first-hand the excesses that can lead to ruin, both personal and political. His story offers an ancient commentary on the preoccupations of our own turbulent times. Shortly after his arrival, the empire is thrown into a panic by an unprecedented barbarian attack on the capital. Suspicion and paranoia abound. A young Roman/American runaway named Patrick, disillusioned with his own life and the state of his country, becomes convinced that Marcus is a dangerous traitor. Culminating in a public accusation made by Patrick, Marcus is wrongfully imprisoned, exiled and tortured as an enemy of the state. In prison, he confronts the many contradictions he has found in his adopted home, and in himself.

A Matter Of Time: The science of rhythm and the groove
When we listen to a clock, we hear "tick-tock," even though clocks just go "tick-tick-tick." The reason is that we hear the clock's ticking as musical rhythm, and our brain synchronizes to the beat of the song. This synchronization is what rhythm is. This concept of rhythm has implications for understanding, writing, performing and teaching music more effectively. It also speaks directly to who we are and how we affect and are affected by the things around us. The author, John Lamb, is a professional musician and music educator who holds a B.S. in Biology, Psychology and Music with a Masters in Education.

American Legends: The Life of Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash, "The Man in Black", is among the most recognized and iconic vocal artists in the history of blues, country and gospel singing. During the second half of the 20th century, he produced a prolific and rarely-equaled career in the country genre as a singer, songwriter and guitarist, despite numerous struggles with alcohol and drug addiction. His trademark bass-baritone voice is instantly identifiable to listeners today, and his "parlando" style (combining an unaffected singing tone with a speech-like rhythm and pacing) has been taken up by the generation following his death in the early 21st century.

American Legends: The Life of Stanley Kubrick
There may be no director in American film history who was better able to combine commercial appeal with art house style like Stanley Kubrick. As his career progressed, his films grew increasingly challenging, with slow, methodical plots that made for running times that spanned upwards of three hours, but no matter how much Kubrick may have broken away from the standard 90-minute Hollywood fare and threatened to alienate his audience, there is no denying the special place his films hold in pop culture. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1969), A Clockwork Orange (1972), and The Shining (1982) remain among the more widely-loved films of the latter half of the 20th century among both critics and casual moviegoers alike.

William Wallace: The Life and Legacy of the Scottish Freedom Fighter
William Wallace is one of the most famous freedom fighters in history, and over 700 years after his death he is still remembered as Scotland's beloved hero. But while the movie Braveheart helped make him a household name, and he is commemorated across Scotland as a natural leader and a loyal son of his homeland, he is also "the most mysterious of the leaders of the Scottish resistance to Edward I." This is because, paradoxically, the very famous soldier is also one of the least well known.

American Legends: The Life of Gregory Peck
At the end of the 20th century, the American Film Institute ranked Gregory Peck 12th in its list of best actors, and it's not hard to see why. In addition to being one of the most popular actors in Hollywood for three decades, Peck won an Academy Award for Best Actor playing Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, and he was also nominated several other times. Even when he wasn't being nominated for his performances, he appeared in some of the most acclaimed movies of the century, including How the West Was Won and Roman Holiday.

Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis: America's Favorite 1950s Comedy Team
Perhaps the most ironic aspect of their success is that Dean Martin was not a comedian in any real sense of the word, and even during their act, he essentially served as the straight man to Jerry Lewis. The routine ensured that critics took more notice of Jerry Lewis, who intentionally came across as an awkward figure with a brand of bodily humor that was borrowed from a lineage of Yiddish humor predicated on physical slapstick. And just as Martin benefited from Lewis' comedic skills, Lewis also further developed a singing career thanks to the more famous Martin's crooning. Though it's often forgotten now, the duo eventually broke up in the mid-1950s because Lewis was starting to outshine Martin in their joint film career.

American Legends: The Life of Kirk Douglas
n 1996, Kirk Douglas was given an Honorary Academy Award "for 50 years as a creative and moral force in the motion picture community", and a few years later, the American Film Institute ranked him the 17th greatest actor of the 20th century. About 15 years after the AFI compiled that list, Kirk Douglas is the only screen legend on the list who is still alive, the patriarch of an acting family that includes popular actor Michael Douglas as well.

William Quantrill and Quantrill's Raiders: The Confederacy's Most Notorious Bushwhackers
Quantrill's Raiders operated along the border between Missouri and Kansas, which had been the scene of partisan fighting over a decade earlier during the debate over whether Kansas and Nebraska would enter the Union as free states or slave states. In "Bloody Kansas", zealous pro-slavery and anti-slavery forces fought each other, most notably John Brown, and the region became a breeding ground for individuals like Quantrill who shifted right back into similar fighting once the Civil War started. Rather than target military infrastructure or enemy soldiers, the bushwhackers rode in smaller numbers and targeted civilians on the other side of the conflict, making legends out of men like Bloody Bill Anderson and John Mosby.

Henry Fonda and Jane Fonda: Like Father Like Daughter
Growing up in the shadow of one of America's most famous actors would be intimidating for anyone, but few have emerged out of that shadow like Jane Fonda, the oldest daughter of screen legend Henry Fonda. In fact, when Jane co-starred with her father in the last film he made, On Golden Pond, he won the Academy Award for Best Actor for it.

American Legends: The Life of Henry Ford
Few Americans have a reputation and legacy anything like Henry Ford's, the man whose name is still associated with one of the world's most famous car companies. Ford is unquestionably one of his country's most famous industrialists, and his use of an assembly line to mass produce automobiles was not only innovative but also made it possible for Americans to own cars en masse. To this day, Ford Motor Company's Model T is a household name more than a century after they were manufactured, not only because they were famous cars but because they represented affordable purchases that revolutionized the way people traveled across the country. Cars would never be a luxury item only for the wealthy again.

Everyone agrees that it's mysterious, interesting and controversial.

American Legends: The Life of Natalie Wood
Few actresses have ever gotten off to the kind of career start that Natalie Wood did during the 1950s. After appearing in film and on TV as a child, Wood broke out by appearing in the classic Rebel Without a Cause alongside James Dean in 1955, despite the fact she was still just 15 years old. She earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in that role, one of three Academy Award nominations she would rack up before the age of 25. That included starring in Splendor in the Grass (1961), West Side Story (1961), and Gypsy (1962), and altogether, she was in over 50 films.
