A veteran of the Battle of Chancellorsville must come to terms with torments, both past and present, in this story by Western author Mackey Murdock.´´Bones´´ Malone earned his moniker collecting buffalo bones on the plains. Even in 1881, Bones is still haunted by his role in the war 18 years earlier. Now his cousin, Wade, has started a big ranch in the area. Bones cannot escape the past, or the idea that he is the designated protector of the Malone family. He will have to reconcile his past and the conflicts of the present, including his relationships with Wade and his wife, Sassy - the woman Bones had once loved. 1. Language: English.

US Marshal, M D (Shorty) Thompson received a letter at his Fort Tularosa ranch, in western New Mexico. ´´Dear Shorty, it saddens me to let you know Matt was killed and robbed of $11,000 and was buried today. April 19, 1881. Almost half of the stolen money was to pay off our ranch which the bank will foreclose on the first day of September. I know who killed my husband but the law cannot find him. It has been told he has family in Montana. I need your help if at all possible, or the children and I shall lose the ranch.´´ Sincerely, Nadine Rogers Matt was one of Shorty´s best friends, they had worked on ranches´ together back in their teen years and were as close as any brothers. Shorty told his partner Buffalo he may be gone for months, but will write when he can. That night he cleaned and oiled his guns. As the sun came up the next morning, he was miles closer to Big Spring, Texas. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dr. Bill Brooks.

The famous life story of the Lakota healer and visionary, Nicholas Black Elk. Widely hailed as a spiritual classic, this inspirational and unfailingly powerful story reveals the life and visions of the Lakota healer Nicholas Black Elk (1863–1950) and the tragic history of his Sioux people during the epic closing decades of the Old West. In 1930, the aging Black Elk met a kindred spirit, the famed poet, writer, and critic John G. Neihardt (1881–1973) on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. The Lakota elder chose Neihardt to share his visions and life with the world. Neihardt understood and today Black Elk is known to all. Black Elk’s remarkable great vision came to him during a time of decimation and loss, when outsiders were stealing the Lakotas’ land, slaughtering buffalo, and threatening their age-old way of life. As Black Elk remembers all too well, the Lakotas, led by such legendary men as Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, fought unceasingly for their freedom, winning a world-renowned victory at the Little Bighorn and suffering unspeakable losses at Wounded Knee. Black Elk Speaks however is more than the epic history of a valiant Native nation. It is beloved as a spiritual classic because of John Neihardt’s sensitivity to Black Elk’s resounding vision of the wholeness of earth, her creatures, and all of humanity. Black Elk Speaks is a once-in-a-lifetime read: the moving story of a young Lakota boy before the reservation years, the unforgettable history of an American Indian nation, and an enduring spiritual message for us all. The premier edition features the first-ever annotated edition of Black Elk’s story, done by renowned Lakota scholar Raymond J. DeMallie, the original Standing Bear illustrations and new commentary on them, new maps of the world of Black Elk Speaks, and a revised index. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robin Neihardt.
