Growing up in the slums of East End London, Charlie Trumper dreams of someday running his grandfather´s fruit and vegetable barrow. That day comes suddenly when his grandfather dies, leaving him the floundering business. With the help of Becky Salmon, an enterprising young woman, Charlie sets out to make a name for himself as ´´The Honest Trader´´. But the brutal onset of World War I takes Charlie far from home and into the path of a dangerous enemy whose legacy of evil follows Charlie and his family for generations. Encompassing three continents and spanning over 60 years, As the Crow Flies brings to life a magnificent tale of one man´s rise from rags to riches set against the backdrop of a changing century. 1.

When Charlie Trumper inherits the barrow his grandfather used to peddle fruit and vegetables in turn-of-the-century Whitechapel, England, he inherits his enterprising spirit as well. Charlie´s deeply held ambition to raise himself out of the poverty of London´s East End is destined to be realized, but there are many obstacles to overcome, including a tour of duty at the front in World War I, where he encounters the man who will become his lifelong enemy. As the crow flies, it is only a few short miles from Whitechapel to Chelsea Terrace, the upscale London neighborhood where Trumper´s department store - and the realization of all Charlie´s dreams - will have its beginnings. But for Charlie, following the threads of love, ambition, and revenge, it will be an epic journey that carries him across three continents and through the triumphs and disasters of the 20th century. 1.

Once again blending multiple story strands that transcend time and place, Grasshopper Jungle author Andrew Smith tells the story of 15-year-old Ariel, a refugee from the Middle East who is the sole survivor of an attack on his small village. Now living with an adoptive family in Sunday, West Virginia, Ariel´s story of his summer at a boys´ camp for tech detox is juxtaposed against those of a schizophrenic bomber and the diaries of a failed arctic expedition from the late 19th century. Oh, and there´s also a depressed bionic reincarnated crow. 1. Language: English. Narrator: MacLeod Andrews. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/lili/001812/bk_lili_001812_sample.mp3.

I began my adult life as a fur trapper in the Rocky Mountains. I would spend the dead of winter with the Crow Indians. I earned the name ´´Shows No Mercy´´ among the Crow for my legendary fights with the Blackfoot, their worst enemy. I try to explain to the Crow that their way of life is doomed because of the westward tide of immigrants who will not try to live with the Crow as I had, but would push them from the land as though they never existed. This had already happened to the Native Americans east of the Mississippi River. Elan, the Crow chief, gave me a fortune in gold nuggets. I took him to St. Louis and showed him ´´civilization´´ and what the gold could buy. He instructed his grandson Lance to make sure that I never ran out of the ´´yellow stones´´. This is the story of one man´s frustration in trying to help those who did not wish to be helped. Mostly they could not conceive of the coming of White immigrants until it was too late. 1.
