Rip Foster Rides the Gray Planet

Rip Foster Rides the Gray Planet by Harold L. Goodwin

Rip Foster Rides the Gray Planet by Harold L. Goodwin

“Foster, Lieutenant, R. I. P.,” blared the voice horn, and five minutes later Rip Foster was off into space on an assignment more exciting than any he had ever imagined. He could hardly believe his ears. Could a green young Planeteer, just through his training, possibly carry out orders like these? Sunny space, what a trick it would be! From the moment Rip boards the space ship Scorpius there is a thrill a minute. He and his nine daring Planeteers must cope with the merciless hazing of the spacemen commanding the ship, and they must outwit the desperate Connies, who threaten to plunge all of space into war. There are a thousand dangers to be faced in high vacuum—and all of this while carrying out an assignment that will take every reader’s breath away.

A Voyage Towards the South Pole and Round the World - Volume 1 by James Cook

A Voyage Towards the South Pole and Round the World – Volume 1 by James Cook

Having, on his first voyage, discovered Australia, Cook still had to contend with those who maintained that the Terra Australians Incognita (the unknown Southern Continent) was a reality. To finally settle the issue, the British Admiralty sent Cook out again into the vast Southern Ocean with two sailing ships totaling only about 800 tons. Listen as Cook, equipped with one of the first chronometers, pushes his small vessel not merely into the Roaring Forties or the Furious Fifties but becomes the first explorer to penetrate the Antarctic Circle, reaching an incredible Latitude 71 degrees South, just failing to discover Antarctica.

The Land of the Blue Flower by Frances Hodgson Burnett

The Land of the Blue Flower by Frances Hodgson Burnett

The Land of the Blue Flower was not called by that name until the tall, strong, beautiful King Amor came down from his castle on the mountain crag and began to reign.

The Adventures of Buffalo Bill

The Adventures of Buffalo Bill by Buffalo Bill

The Adventures of Buffalo Bill by Buffalo Bill

Buffalo Bill was arguably, the most recognized man in the world when he penned this book. The first four stories are of some of his adventures and the remaining 6 are autobiographical. All of them have been proved to be historically accurate in all important aspects. From his service as chief scout for the 3rd Cavalry during the plains wars, to his pony express service and finally the story of how he got his nickname “Buffalo Bill”, everything is larger than life. Killing 4,280 buffalo in 18 months for the railroad workers was an amazing feat. Follow along as he tells of his Indian campaigns and then his world famous “Wild West Show” later in life. The foreword gives a brief summary of this man’s amazing life. He respected the Indians and urged equal rights for women, something amazing in itself for his time.

The History of the Life of Mr Jonathan Wild, The Great

The History of the Life of Mr Jonathan Wild, The Great by Henry Fielding

The History of the Life of Mr Jonathan Wild, The Great by Henry Fielding

This novel is sometimes thought of as [Fielding’s}] first because he almost certainly began composing it before he wrote Shamela and Joseph Andrews. It is a satire of Walpole that draws a parallel between Walpole and Jonathan Wild, the infamous gang leader and highwayman. He implicitly compares the Whig party in Parliament with a gang of thieves being run by Walpole, whose constant desire to be a “Great Man” (a common epithet for Walpole) should culminate only in the antithesis of greatness: being hanged.
