"This audio collection of stories from the Sioux (WIGWAM EVENINGS) begins with a tribe's winter camp and a wise teacher telling stories to the children in front of the fire. Hardin provides the setting and transition and Covell tells the stories. Covell is a graceful, deep-voiced storyteller and his inflections give full color." from KLIATT magazine July, 1995

#C-253 FLAMEDRAGON'S DANCE by Gary Martin Read by the author.
In a world before recorded time it was still possible for animals and strange mythical creatures to talk to humans - if they would take the time to listen. One who did take the time, and thus had many animal friends, was Young Tom. He lived in a peaceful little village where he could only dream of brave deeds and heroic quests. Then stange rumors of the rise of the "nasties" and the terrible mind-controlling "moloch" begin to reach the village. Soon Tom finds himself on a heroic quest beyond even his own imaginings - with the fate of his people in his hands. A wonderful novel in the tradition of Tolkien is made even better by the author's inspired reading.

A FEW MORE REVIEWS

"An English traveler's weird encounter with beast-people monsters in the remote Pacific island laboratory of a megalomaniac scientist is evoked effectively in this cool reading of early Wellsian science fiction." ( THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU )from The American Library Association BOOKLIST magazine June 15, 1980

"A clear and dramatic verbatim reading of Wells' famous science fiction tale, this recording was successfully used by both an English teacher and a reading consultant in high school. A great bargain at the price, this recording will be a good addition to high school, college, and public library collections." from BOOKLIST magazine May 15, 1980

"The narration is even and sure throughout as the listener hears and experiences the aliens' seeming invincibility and their ultimate demise. Excellent for high school and public library collections." from BOOKLIST magazine April 15, 1980

WHY BUY WHEN YOU CAN RENT?

For a whole bunch of reasons. For one thing, given the high price of most companies' book rentals, it doesn't cost all that much more and you don't have to worry about getting them back on time. When you're done you can lend them to friends, colleagues, relatives,the boss, etc. or donate them to tax-deductible organizations such as schools, libraries and hospitals. You make friends, influence people and get yourself a nice little deduction. A warning - mostof our titles are worth a second or third listen. Lend them only to friends or relatives who are in the habit of returning things.
