Since canines first joined humans around the fire—perhaps as far back as 100,000 years ago—the two species have enjoyed a mutually rewarding relationship. The bond between people and their dogs is like no other. Dogs are our best friends, our co-workers, our guardians, and often, our rescuers. They serve us, adore us, entertain us, work for and with us, but most of all they warm our hearts. The perfect gift for any dog lover, The Greatest Dog Stories Ever Told is a compulsively readable collection of some of the most moving and illuminating stories ever penned on the subject of our canine companions. Readers will find selections from renowned writers of the genre such as Jack London, James Thurber, and Willie Morris, as well as a few surprise contributions from writers more famous in other fields, including Ray Bradbury and Thomas Mann. With gems from Will Rogers, P. G. Wodehouse, Peter Mayle, Stephen J. Bodio, and many others, The Greatest Dog Stories Ever Told is hard to put down. In the thirty-six stories in this fascinating collection, dog lovers will have the pleasure of meeting all kinds of canines—sled dogs, herding dogs, hunting and birding dogs, family pets and movie stars, a dog who was a growing boy's best friend, and even a man who was a dog in another life. These dogs will make readers laugh and make them cry, but most of all they will make them realize just why humans adore their dogs.

To reach freedom, the most famous escapers of all time have been willing to endure the most horrific conditions—and the direst consequences if caught. The collection of tales in The Greatest Escape Stories Ever Told is gripping as only true life-and-death struggles can be: Papillon fighting through the jungles of Guiana only to commit himself to the open ocean in a sixteen-foot boat rather than face a life in exile; Rocky Gause dodging bullets as he swims through shark-infested waters to escape the Japanese at Bataan, while those around him simply quit; Latude battling against the dreaded Bastille; Baron Trenck—with chains covering almost every inch of his body—digging and digging to free himself from wrongful imprisonment; Andre Devigny, so weak from starvation and poor treatment that he could barely lift himself, shimmying across a rope only yards above a German sentry during World War II on the eve of his execution. These are just a few of the twenty-five bold and ingenious tales of escape included in this collection. The Greatest Escape Stories Ever Told will hold readers captive for years to come!

*A New York Times Bestseller* Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman reveal the full story behind their epic romance--presented in a series of intimate conversations between the couple, including photos, anecdotes, and the occasional puzzle. The year: 2000. The setting: Los Angeles. A gorgeous virtuoso of an actress agreed to star in a random play, and a basement-dwelling scenic carpenter said he would assay a supporting role in the selfsame pageant. At the first rehearsal she surveyed her fellow cast members, determining if any of the men might qualify to provide her with a satisfying fling. Her gaze fell upon the carpenter, and like a bolt of lightning the thought struck her: no dice. Moving on. Yet, unbeknownst to our protagonists, Cupid had merely set down his bow and picked up a rocket launcher . . . that fired a love rocket (not a euphemism). The players were Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, and the resulting romance, once ignited, was . . . epic. Beyond epic. It resulted in a coupling that has endured to this day; a sizzling, perpetual tryst that has captivated the world with its kindness, athleticism, astonishingly low-brow humor, and true (fire emoji) passion. How did they do it? They came from completely different families, ignored a significant age difference, and were separated by the gulf of several social strata. Megan loved books and art history; Nick loved hammers. But much more than these seemingly unsurpassable obstacles were the values they held in common: respect, decency, the ability to mention genitalia in almost any context, and an abiding obsession with the songs of Tom Waits. Eighteen years later, they're still very much in love and have finally decided to reveal the philosophical mountains they have conquered, the lessons they've learned, and the myriad jigsaw puzzles they've completed. Presented as an oral history in a series of conversations between the couple, the book features anecdotes, hijinks, photos, and a veritable grab bag of tomfoolery. This is not only the intoxicating book that Mullally's and Offerman's fans have been waiting for, it might just hold the solution to the greatest threat facing our modern world: the single life.

For many of us, life is about the stories that make up our past, provide context for the present, and give hope for our future. As an art form, storytelling has fallen victim to the smart phone, the computer tablet, and the video game. We just don't take time anymore to pass along the stories that define our culture, our heritage, and our character. Crazy as a Run Over Dog is one man's attempt to renew the tradition of legacy building by telling the stories of everyday experiences that remind us we are all more alike than we are different.

No one expected Barley to have an encounter with the Messiah. He was homeless, hungry, and struggling to survive in first century Jerusalem. Most surprisingly, he was a dog. But through Barley’s eyes, the story of a teacher from Galilee comes alive in a way we’ve never experienced before. Barley’s story begins in the home of a compassionate woodcarver and his wife who find Barley as an abandoned, nearly-drowned pup. Tales of a special teacher from Galilee are reaching their tiny village, but when life suddenly changes again for Barley, he carries the lessons of forgiveness and love out of the woodcarver’s home and through the dangerous roads of Roman-occupied Judea. On the outskirts of Jerusalem, Barley meets a homeless man and petty criminal named Samid. Together, Barley and his unlikely new master experience fresh struggles and new revelations. Soon Barley is swept up into the current of history, culminating in an unforgettable encounter with the truest master of all as he bears witness to the greatest story ever told.
