The Complete Kayak Fisherman: Eric Burnley
This is the complete, ad-free first season of Wild Thing.Sasquatch. Bigfoot. A dark shape running through the trees, a bit of fur caught on a twig, the rustling in the forest. Its legend extends back to precolonial times, but still captures modern imaginations. Companies market Bigfoot-themed goods: beer, television shows, bikes, coffee, socks... erotica. People slap ´´I believe” bumper stickers on their cars and kayaks and binge-watch Bigfoot-themed reality shows. Part of this is tongue-in-cheek - Bigfoot as hipster accessory. But many people take Sasquatch seriously. Very seriously. Primatologists, naturalists, academics - perfectly rational and evidence-driven people who swear to his existence and know he (she? it?) is real. Veteran public radio producer Laura Krantz has met them. Wild Thing is Laura’s journey into the world of Bigfoot, introducing us to the true believers and the I-want-to-believers, while seeking to explore why this creature ignites our imaginations, where that fascination comes from, and why it persists. 1.

Love the TV show Modern Family? Wait until you meet the Fletcher family! With two dads, four adopted brothers, two cats, and one pug, the Fletchers will have you laughing out loud! The Fletchers are back on Rock Island, home of all their best summer memories. But from their first day on vacation, it´s clear that this year things have changed. Their favorite lighthouse is all boarded up, and the Fletcher boys can´t figure out why or how to save it. Add a dose of Shakespeare, a very tippy kayak, a video camera, (maybe, possibly, or not) a swimming cat, and some new neighbors, and the recipe for a crazy vacation is complete. Over the course of the summer, the Fletchers will learn that sometimes, even in a place where time stands still, the wildest, weirdest, and most wonderful surprises await. 1. Language: English.

Wherever Chelsea Handler travels, one thing is certain: she always ends up in the land of the ridiculous. Now, in this uproarious collection, she sneaks her sharp wit through airport security and delivers her most absurd and hilarious stories ever. On safari in Africa, it´s anyone´s guess as to what´s more dangerous: the wildlife or Chelsea. But whether she´s fumbling the seduction of a guide by not knowing where tigers live (Asia, duh) or wearing a bathrobe into the bush because her clothes stopped fitting seven margaritas ago, she´s always game for the next misadventure. The situation gets down and dirty as she defiles a kayak in the Bahamas, and outright sweaty as she escapes from a German hospital on crutches. When things get truly scary, like finding herself stuck next to a passenger with bad breath, she knows she can rely on her family to make matters even worse. Thank goodness she has the devoted Chunk by her side - except for the time she loses him in Telluride. Complete with answers to the most frequently asked traveler´s questions, hot travel trips, and travel etiquette, none of which should be believed, Uganda Be Kidding Me has Chelsea taking on the world, one laugh-out-loud incident at a time. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chelsea Handler.
