From Book 1: Everyone born and raised in Sammy Jo Knox's small country town had never left. They made their life there. Got married, had kids, lived in the same houses that were always there along the streets that never changed. The whole white-picket fence and tree swing might look good on greeting cards, but in real life it was boring, at least to Sammy Jo. When Sammy Jo was a little girl she began dreaming of something bigger. Brighter. Something that wasn't her town. She wanted to see the world and experience it all. Just how she was going to do that she had no idea. Because if her momma had her way she'd marry one of the boys in town and be spitting out babies and going to church on Sunday with them all lined up in a row. The day Hale Christopher Jude III walked into the bakery she worked at, she knew he was it. That part of life she was missing. He smelled of foreign places and exciting things. He represented all the bright lights she dreamed of and simply put she hoped he was her way out of this place. What Sammy Jo didn't realize was things that appear perfect...aren't. And chasing her dreams could lead to something very different. Also includes Book 2! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maxine Mitchell.

Who made the first snowman? Who first came up with the idea of placing snowballs on top of each other, and who decided they would use a carrot for a nose? Most puzzling of all: How can this mystery ever be solved, with all the evidence long since melted? The snowman appears everywhere on practically everything - from knickknacks to greeting cards to seasonal sweaters we plan to return. Whenever we see big snowballs our first impulse is to deck them out with a top hat. Humorist and writer Bob Eckstein has long been fascinated by this ubiquitous symbol of wintertime fun -- and finally, for the first time, one of the world's most popular icons gets his due. A thoroughly entertaining exploration, The History of the Snowman travels back in time to shed light on the snowman's enigmatic past -- from the present day, in which the snowman reigns as the King of Kitsch, to the Dark Ages, with the creation of the very first snowman. Eckstein's curiosity began playfully enough, but soon snowballed into a (mostly) earnest quest of chasing Frosty around the world, into museums and libraries, and seeking out the advice of leading historians and scholars. The result is a riveting history that reaches back through centuries and across cultures -- sweeping from fifteenth-century Italian snowballs to eighteenth-century Russian ice sculptures to the regrettable "white-trash years" (1975-2000). The snowman is not just part of our childhood memories, but is an integral part of our world culture, appearing -- much like a frozen Forrest Gump -- alongside dignitaries and celebrities during momentous events. Again and again, the snowman pops up in rare prints, paintings, early movies, advertising and, over the past century, in every art form imaginable. And the jolly snowman -- ostensibly as pure as the driven snow -- also harbors a dark past full of political intrigue, sex, and violence. With more than two hundred illustrations and a special section of the best snowman cartoons, 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Price.
