The story begins in a dusty village lost in the Argentine pampas, where a girl, born out of wedlock, scrambles her way to the capital city by the time she is 15. It ends with the embalmed corpse of Eva Peron being hidden away by nervous politicians for fear that if the working people of Argentina knew where it was buried, it would inspire them to revolution. In between, she became first the actress Eva Duarte, then the mistress of Colonel Peron, then, in October 1945, after the "shirtless ones" had swept Peron into office, the president's wife. In the colorful, tumultuous setting of postwar Argentina, she wielded a power, spiritual and practical, that has few parallels outside of hereditary monarchy. She was literally idolized by millions but was hated and feared by many as well. She became Evita the legend. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nadia May.

Ready for some stories from the vast wilderness of Canada? It's home to the sasquatch: a creature that's revered and feared by the natives there since before time was recorded. Settle back with a cup of hot chocolate, lock the doors, and be ready to call your best friend in case you start seeing big hairy faces in the window (but be aware that your friend may also be listening to these stories, so have a backup plan). These 12 all-new and original stories from Rusty Wilson, the world's greatest Bigfoot storyteller, will keep you intrigued, hanging on to the edge of your seat, or wishing you could travel up north and see what all the excitement's about for yourself. Come hear about a young man who finally gets his wish to visit one of the world's wildest places, where he quickly realizes that maybe his parents were right after all. Then hear about the strange case where a sasquatch discovers a rare fossilized dinosaur skeleton. And then, if you dare, hear about a woman who stops for a break on a remote Canadian back road and ends up taking something home with her that she really doesn't want. And there's the sasquatch that ends up saving peoples' lives by stealing all their food in the dead of winter. Listen to a tale of a sasquatch that brings a couple together through its death, one that decides it wants to be in a painting, or perhaps another who likes the taste of loons, or even a man who discovers a secret Bigfoot food source. These campfire tales are guaranteed to make you happy you're safe and sound in your house instead of listening to a sasquatch screaming in the darkness from inside your thin nylon tent, deep in the Canadian wilds. Or, if you're truly the adventurous type, maybe you'll want to buy a thin nylon tent and head to British Columbia or Alberta. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Henzel.
