Speed Kings

product image
$16.00

A story of risk, adventure, and daring as four American bobsledders race for the gold in the most dangerous competition in Olympic history.

In the 1930s, as the world hurtled toward war, speed was all the rage. Bobsledding, the fastest and most thrilling way to travel on land, had become a sensation. Exotic, exciting, and brutally dangerous, it was the must-see event of the 1932 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, the first Winter Games on American soil. Bobsledding required exceptional skill and extraordinary courage--qualities the American team had in abundance.

There was Jay O'Brien, the high-society playboy; Tippy Grey, a scandal-prone Hollywood has-been; Eddie Eagan, world champion heavyweight boxer and Rhodes Scholar; and the charismatic Billy Fiske, the true heart of the team, despite being barely out of his teens. In the thick of the Great Depression, the nation was gripped by the story of these four men, their battle against jealous locals, treacherous U.S. officials, and the very same German athletes they would be fighting against in the war only a few short years later. Billy, king of speed to the end, would go on to become the first American fighter pilot killed in WWII. Evoking the glamour and recklessness of the Jazz Age, Speed Kings will thrill readers to the last page.

Stranger Than Fiction: War of 1812 with Parody Lyrics

product image
$9.49
You've never learned history like this! War facts you couldn't make up, woven with rhythm and melody, make the War of 1812 hard to forget. Did you know... -Spying was easy? Enemy plans could be read in the newspaper. -The new Paul Revere was a woman? She warned the British that the Americans were coming. -U.S. troops looted and burned York? The U.S. attacked the Upper Canada capital before the British sacked Washington. -A tornado ravaged the British in the U.S. capital? The storm killed more British than the Americans did. -The St. Lawrence River was a smugglers' highway? Residents on either side were trading partners with no interest in fighting. -New England nearly seceded? Several states almost preceded the South in leaving the Union. -How slow news travelled? The Battle of New Orleans was fought after the peace treaty was signed. PARODIES: O Grab Me! In the (Royal) Navy Whistle Blowin' Mama My Fleet's Bigger than Yeo's Payback Tango For Want of the Telegraph This Land Privateers We Be Battle of the Mosquito When You Pray with Papa The St. Lawrence River Runs Free I Marry and I Tarry Give Me a Little More Wine The Ignoble Doom of York Hello Dolly Madison NO Canada!
