ATARI Sound- und Musik-Buch: GORGENS
He had lost his family, murdered both his boss and his best friend, and taken refuge from a manhunt in the wilderness where an ancient force called to him. Being hunted...and haunted, was only the begining. The Blue Ridge Mountains of Southern Appalachia are ancient. They are older than the Rockies, older than the Alps. The Blue Ridge was old when the Himalayas were in their infancy. Beautiful, enchanting as is a Venus Flytrap to an unsuspecting fly, but there is a horror bellied deep in the serenity in those rolling blue hills of southern Appalachia. The Gorge is a story of backwoods mountain culture, of a snake handling, strychnine-drinking pastor, who rises to power over his devoted flock. Of a Native American curse, confining an even older civilization of cannibal cave dwellers to within in the boundaries of a mountain gorge, hidden deep in the backcountry of the five hundred thousand acre Pisgah National Forrest. Nathan Mires is drawn to this place, as a moth is helpless to the magnetism of a glowing porch light. His life has fallen to pieces; something has taken control of him, causing a murderous rampage, which has led him to flee into the backcountry of the Pisgah, seeking refuge from a crooked, spiteful sheriff. Soon after he arrives in the gorge, he discovers his problems have only just begun. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Coleman Ford.

The university town of Ithaca, New York, blessed with numerous waterfalls and beautiful, dangerous gorges, provides a cosmopolitan yet bucolic backdrop for this tale of transformation. Here Stephen and Michelle Wolcott live an ostensibly idyllic albeit wintry life, comfortably oblivious of the constant interplay between the subtle and material worlds. Gathered for a Christmas party at their well-ordered home, old friends and a new neighbor are treated to the appearance of a fox in the snowy yard. For some it is magical, for others innocuous; for all it proves significant. Following the party Michelle´s old trouble with migraines returns, bringing frightening sensations, confusion, and the recurring vision of a body in the water. With the aid of a shaman, she approaches a new understanding of the nature of existence, learns to open her heart, and finds that spiritual forces are conspiring to take her life in a new direction. 1.

More blazing frontier action from Amazon Kindle number-one best-selling western writer Ben Bridges.... To the south, Mexico was being torn apart by a revolution, but marshal-turned-rancher Jim Allison didn´t give a damn about that...until the rebels crossed over onto American soil one night and made it personal. Next morning, Jim saddled up and rode toward the border, hell-bent on getting revenge on the men who´d shot his friend and stopping the leader of the revolution from laying his hands on 10 priceless white stallions. On the face of it, Jim´s mission looked simple, but he hadn´t counted on having a pair of greenhorns along to slow him down, or having one of his own party threatening to shoot him. Could he stay one step ahead of the rebels in a desert wilderness that was all but impassable? And could he stay alive long enough to reach the final showdown, at a place called Thunder Gorge? 1.
