    A collection of odd and obscure moments in Boston history, starring colonists and criminals, baseball players and barmaids, and many more.   Boston has been a favorite backdrop for novels, films, and television series, but some of the best stories about the city are true ones. Historian Ted Clarke explores these stories, both the familiar and the obscure, that have earned Boston such nicknames as “the epicenter of American crime fiction,” “the cradle of liberty,” and “the ice cream capital of the world.”   The fifteen-foot tidal wave of molasses that roared down Commercial Street in 1919 is one of the more famous legends. Lesser known, but equally stunning, is the case of Albert Tirrell, who in 1845 murdered his mistress in a Boston boardinghouse but was released after presenting the first successful sleepwalking defense in the United States. From the mysterious story of John Jacob Loud, who patented the first ballpoint pen, to the dubious early enterprises of merchant prince turned philanthropist Thomas Perkins, Boston Curiosities offers up a medley of memorable events that give Beantown its celebrated flavor

    Infamous Aircraft - Dangerous...

    An in-depth look at some of the 20th century’s notoriously terrible aircraft. Many aircraft, some famous and some rare, gained a reputation for being difficult to fly and sometimes downright dangerous. This book looks at some of the worst culprits over a period spanning World War I to the age of supersonic flight. The following aircraft are included . . . B.E.2: The Royal Flying Corps went to war in it in 1914. The B.E. was easy to fly and very stable—but it was difficult to maneuver and very easy to shoot down. Tarrant Tabor: The Tabor was grotesque, a massive misfit of an experimental bomber that predictably came to grief on its first flight. Avro Manchester: The twin-engine Manchester would fly all the way to Berlin and back—only to burst into flames over its own base. Messerschmitt Me 210: The Me 210 was developed as a successor to Goering’s Destroyer, the Bf 110. It was a disaster with a phenomenal accident rate. Martin B-26 Marauder: They called the B-26 the “widowmaker,” fast and powerful, with some savage characteristics. Reichenberg IV: The manned version of the V-1 flying bomb was a desperation weapon, and its pilots intended to fly suicide missions against Allied shipping. Tu-144: Rushed prematurely into its test program to beat the Anglo-French Concorde, the Tu-144 was intended to be Russia’s supersonic dream.

    "...where the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average."  There's a reason all those children in Lake Wobegon are above average.  It might be the clean prairie air.  It might be the wholesome wheat that's grown by the Norwegian bachelor farmers.  And it just might be their strong, good-looking parents. 
    Garrison Keillor's collection of "News from Lake Wobegon" monologues -
     all taken from live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion is  an extended meditation on the joys, sorrows, challenges, and humor of raising children.  The tales include "Ronnie and the Winnebago" about a young man, his rock-star girlfriend, and his long struggle to earn his father's understanding; "Love While You Dare" the story of August Johnson, who, after losing his brother in a gambler's prank in Copenhagen, flees to America rather than face his mother--who later comes to visit him in Lake Wobegon; and six more splendid, unforgettable accounts of how, in Keillor's words, "the meek shall inherit the earth, and when we have done all we can with our children, it's time to step back and let them inherit it." 
      Contents:  Ball Jars Love While you Dare To Saturday Morning in The Bon Marche Family Trip to Yellowstone The Flood Bob Anderson's Last Dance   Children Will Break Your Heart Ronnie and The Winnebago Carl's Christmas Pageant The TombstoneA HighBridge Audio production.
