Vampirates is a colorful extravaganza with a wildly eccentric cast and lashings of swashbuckling adventure, punctuated with horror and old-school romance. Conor and Grace are twins, recently orphaned after their widowed father´s death. Rather than being adopted by the town´s busy-bodies, they decide to set sail for new pastures in their father´s last single possession, his sailboat. But a vicious storm capsizes their boat, and the twins are separated. Two mysterious ships sail to their rescue, each picking up one twin before disappearing into the mist. Conor wakes to find himself on a pirate ship and is soon being trained up with a cutlass. Meanwhile, Grace finds herself locked in a darkened room, as the vampirates wait for night to fall and their feasting to begin. Determined to find each other, yet intrigued by their new shipmates, the twins are about to embark on the biggest adventure of their life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Philpott.

By virtue of a broken treaty in 1838, 15,000 members of the Cherokee Tribe were sold down the river by President Andrew Jackson and were forced to walk from their ancestral homes in the southeastern United States to designated Indian Territory of present-day Oklahoma. An estimated 4,000 Cherokee Indians perished along the way, and their dead bodies lined the pathway of what is now known as the Cherokee Trail of Tears.During that same year, Englishmen were being forced from their country by the dismal economy, as Queen Victoria turned a blind eye to the plight of her dog-tired and penniless subjects.

There, they would be free to pursue success, and for one family, that meant moving westward to Oklahoma.Let the Rivers Clap Their Hands is a masterfully woven saga of the emerging tale of two families from two very different backgrounds, each finding themselves freshly transplanted in the midst of Indian Territory in Oklahoma. From the hardships of their pasts, to the wake of the Great Depression, to the dawn of World War II, these families’ trials tell the tale of love, heartache, and hope.As a winding river has twists and turns, listeners will discover the same with this riveting tale.
