Little Bird Flies: Karen McCombie
Calling Crow travels down the Southeast coast in search of his wife, Juana, taken by the Spanish. He is captured and badly wounded by the Coosa people. Unable to care for himself, he is saved from a slow, painful death and nursed back to health by Green Bird Woman, who he grows to love. Adopted by the Coosa, Calling Crow becomes their chief. One day word arrives that French Protestant colonists have settled to the north. Then, Spanish Catholic colonists settle near Calling Crow´s village and he discovers that Juana is among them. The two European groups learn of each other´s presence and make war plans. Now Calling Crow must prevent the coming battle from destroying his adopted people, and the two women he loves, one of which he must choose. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Arthur Harper.

The beloved sequel to the now-classic Lakota Woman, Ohitika Woman follows Mary Brave Bird as she continues her powerful, dramatic tale of ancient glory and present anguish, of courage and despair, of magic and mystery, and, above all, of the survival of both body and mind. Coming home from Wounded Knee in 1973, married to American Indian movement leader Leonard Crow Dog, Mary was a mother with the hope of a better life. But, as she says, ´´Trouble always finds me.´´ With brutal frankness she bares her innermost thoughts, recounting the dark as well as the bright moments in her always eventful life. She not only talks about the stark truths of being a Native American living in a white-dominated society but also addresses the experience of being a mother, a woman, and, rarest of all, a Sioux feminist. Filled with contrasts, courage, and endurance, Ohitika Woman is a powerful testament to Mary´s will and spirit. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Durante.

Mary Brave Bird grew up fatherless in a one-room cabin, without running water or electricity, on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Rebelling against the aimless drinking, punishing missionary school, narrow strictures for women, and violence and hopeless of reservation life, she joined the new movement of tribal pride sweeping Native American communities in the ´60s and ´70s. Mary eventually married Leonard Crow Dog, the American Indian Movement´s chief medicine man, who revived the sacred but outlawed Ghost Dance. Originally published in 1990, Lakota Woman was a national best seller and winner of the American Book Award. It is a unique document, unparalleled in American Indian literature, a story of death, of determination against all odds, of the cruelties perpetuated against American Indians, and of the Native American struggle for rights. Working with Richard Erdoes, one of the 20th century´s leading writers on Native American affairs, Brave Bird recounts her difficult upbringing and the path of her fascinating life. 1.

Wagners Creek, otherwise known as the arse-end of the Earth, is the home of the mutton-bird, the carrion crow, and the remarkable Fin Starling. Son of the local provider of ´´special services´´, Fin is different from other children and soon it becomes clear that he is something of a miracle-worker as he transforms the dirt-poor shantytown into a place of pilgrimage. Elizabeth Stead´s gently comic portrait of Wagners Creek is handled with benevolent grace. Yet beneath the comedy runs an unsettling undercurrent and the suspicion that Fin´s birthplace exists in a parallel universe where different laws operate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alan King.

One pet crow fights to save humanity from an apocalypse in this uniquely hilarious debut from a genre-bending literary author. S.T., a domesticated crow, is a bird of simple pleasures: hanging out with his owner Big Jim, trading insults with Seattle´s wild crows (those idiots), and enjoying the finest food humankind has to offer: Cheetos ®. Then Big Jim´s eyeball falls out of his head, and S.T. starts to feel like something isn´t quite right. His most tried-and-true remedies--from beak-delivered beer to the slobbering affection of Big Jim´s loyal but dim-witted dog, Dennis--fail to cure Big Jim´s debilitating malady. S.T. is left with no choice but to abandon his old life and venture out into a wild and frightening new world with his trusty steed Dennis, where he discovers that the neighbors are devouring each other and the local wildlife is abuzz with rumors of dangerous new predators roaming Seattle. Humanity´s extinction has seemingly arrived, and the only one determined to save it is a foul-mouthed crow whose knowledge of the world around him comes from his TV-watching education. Hollow Kingdom is a humorous, big-hearted, and boundlessly beautiful romp through the apocalypse and the world that comes after, where even a cowardly crow can become a hero.
