In a personal but objective narrative based on the Bounty's log, Bligh himself tells of the stormy voyage to Tahiti, his crew's insatiable attachment to the island paradise, and the incredible 3,600-mile journey to safety after the mutineers cast him -- and 18 loyal crew members -- adrift in a small, open boat with few supplies.

An occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge and other stories by Ambrose Bierce ( )
13 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A man stood upon a railroad bridge in northern Alabama, looking down into the swift water twenty feet below. The man's hands were behind his back, the wrists bound with a cord. A rope closely encircled his neck. It was attached to a stout cross-timber above his head and the slack fell to the level of his knees. Some loose boards laid upon the sleepers supporting the metals of the railway supplied a footing for him and his executioners--two private soldiers of the Federal army, directed by a sergeant who in civil life may have been a deputy sheriff. From the opening to An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

In this detailed, moving, often poetic journal, Peary recounts the full story of the final successful expedition, from painstaking planning and preparation to the party's triumphant return. By ship, by dogsled, on foot, through fierce storms and the endless gloom of the arctic night, Peary leads the reader, mile by mile, step by step, to that glorious moment when he plants the American flag on the northern-most spot on earth. It is the climactic event in a stirring saga of intelligence, courage and tenacity in the face of extraordinary hardships: temperatures of sixty below zero, howling blizzards, treacherous pack ice, frostbite, dense fogs, and the difficulties navigating across nearly a thousand miles of trackless frozen wasteland

Even as a child, Davy Crockett "always delighted to be in the very thickest of danger." Better known to us as "King of the Wild Frontier," Davy Crockett was not only a frontiersman but also a politician who became a celebrity and a folk hero during his lifetime. Here, in his own inimitable style, he describes his earliest days in Tennessee, his two marriages, his career as an Indian fighter, his bear hunts, and his electioneering. His reputation as a "b'ar" hunter sent him to Congress with an eye on the White House; but at the Alamo, he would cap off a legend that still holds Americans in its spell

The education of Henry Adams by Henry Adams ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few works have so firmly established their position in American literature as The education of Henry Adams. As a man of extraordinary gifts and learning and a member of one of the greatest American families, Henry Adams wrote an insightful exploration of himself and the tumultuous age in which he lived. In the words of Van Wyck Brooks, he "revealed a phase of American history with unparalleled boldness and truth." In spite of his illustrious background and Harvard schooling, Henry Adams asserts that his conventional education was defective because it did not prepare him to live in a world transformed by the new science and the new technology. His intention was to write a kind of handbook to prepare "young men, in universities and elsewhere, to be men of the world, equipped for any emergency." The result is what many consider to be one of the finest autobiographies ever written
