Harry Ferguson has a problem. Dragons have blown into his sleepy East Texas town.And it’s all his fault.Now here’s what happened....It is summertime in a small town in Texas. To keep the children of the community entertained, the town librarian has asked her father to come and tell them a story. The old man, known as Hank, is a bit nervous but agrees. Hank begins to tell his mystical fairy tale about a young boy, a princess, a talking sword, and an evil dragon. Hank is a masterful storyteller. In no time at all, he captures the hearts and imaginations of the children and the adults gathered in the library.In the crowd, there is one precocious and curious little girl who stands out among the rest. Little Sarah seems to immediately become one with the story. Hank and Sarah connect in a peculiar way; somehow Sarah knows what’s going to happen in the story before Hank tells it. As the story unfolds, life in the small town becomes really strange. The fairy tale and the real world begin to meld. As the plot action rises, the creepy eeriness does as well - something is wrong, bizarrely wrong. There are surprises, twists, and turns as the evil dragon is revealed and raises his ugly head! “There are more things we don’t know than we do know”. But nothing compares to the shocking ending.Warning: Clean, romantic content, strong female characters who love their men and fight and die side by side with them. You will laugh and possibly snort. Do not listen to this book while eating or drinking unless you bring something to clean up. It has Texans with PhDs - they talk funny but are smart - country Texans cast in a balanced light who cuss or come a vowel short thereof (not real bad), pray, and fight for each other, children at risk of demonic rituals, angels in overalls, grandpas that spoil their granddaughters, sword violence, old pickup trucks, and coming in future books in the series, but not yet, sentient dogs and Sasquatches with degrees 1.

Football is, at heart, such a brutal, harsh game. Only someone who truly loves it and truly writes so very well can somehow make it sound lovely. Rick Telander does. (Frank Deford, National Public Radio, Sports Illustrated, HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel) More than 30 years ago, acclaimed author and Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist Rick Telander was drafted out of Northwestern University by a Kansas City Chiefs team filled with future Pro Football Hall of Famers and coached by the legendary Hank Stram. In 2004, Telander found the tattered, spiral-bound journal he kept while in that training camp and, after rereading the entries he kept until being cut from the team, was amazed and moved by the life lessons he took away from that once-in-a-lifetime experience and how they can be applied to people’s lives today. In Like a Rose, Rick Telander reproduces his training-camp journal, following each entry with his views today on how those unique events and the heartbreak of not being able to fulfill his NFL dream helped propel him into a life as one of the country’s most highly respected and well-known sportswriters. Telander, whose other books include Heaven Is a Playground, ranked as the 15th-best sports book of all time by Sports Illustrated, hopes to show how a game some see as being violent can instead offer lessons that people from any walk of life can understand. He also promises to explain the poignancy behind the enigmatic title, Like a Rose. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Thomsen.
