´´An adventure, a mystery, and a love song to the natural world…Run out and listen to it. Right now.´´ (Newbery Medalist Karen Cushman) In the town of Placid, Wisconsin, in 1871, Georgie Burkhardt is known for two things: her uncanny aim with a rifle and her habit of speaking her mind plainly. But when Georgie blurts out something she shouldn´t, her older sister Agatha flees, running off with a pack of ´´pigeoners´´ trailing the passenger pigeon migration. And when the sheriff returns to town with an unidentifiable body - wearing Agatha´s blue-green ball gown - everyone assumes the worst…Except Georgie. Refusing to believe the facts that are laid down (and coffined) before her, Georgie sets out on a journey to find her sister. She will track every last clue and shred of evidence to bring Agatha home. Yet even with resolute determination and her trusty Springfield single-shot, Georgie is not prepared for what she faces on the western frontier. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tara Sands.

The fascinating story of the village of Riseholme´s reigning queen of high society: the indomitable Lucia! England between the wars was a paradise of utter calm and leisure for the very, very rich. But into this enclave is born Mrs. Emmeline Lucas - La Lucia, as she is known - a woman determined to lead a life quite different from the pomp and subdued nature of her class. With her cohort, Georgie Pillson, and her husband, Peppino, she upends the greats of high society, including the imperious Lady Ambermere and her equally imperious dog, Pug; the odious Piggy and Goosie Antrobus; the Christian Scientist Daisy Quantrock, with her penchant for the foreign; and everyone else in the small English town that the wealthy Britons call their country home. Beset on all sides by pretenders to her social throne, Lucia brings culture, the fine arts, and a great deal of excitement and intrigue into this cloistered realm. 1. Language: English.
