Captain Sara Zeeman must learn to embrace life on a planet she has come to hate. It was almost two years after they landed on Sarisart when she suddenly disappeared. Sara Zeeman was the Chancellor of the Moon’s Eye Colony but she was finding it difficult to lead her people when she couldn’t manage her own life. Soon after they arrived, she began to realize that she had made a horrible mistake. Every problem they faced, every hardship they had to endure, and every death…she took personal responsibility for. She realized she should have never brought the Moon’s Eye to Sara’s Heart. Sara’s first visit to Sarisart included being kidnapped by mercenaries, a ride in an airplane, and a wormhole. A recipe that should never be combined. Imagine being abducted by mercenaries and forced into an airplane only to be sucked through a wormhole and then crash landing on another planet. It was an awesome adventure that eventually revealed the existence of a time travel paradox with her at its core. She had met an alien that claimed to be a direct descendant of hers. He was an Unan man called Andrin. She was made to believe that when she got back to Earth, all her dreams about building her moon colony would come true. Except, of course, for one major change. After they blasted off, they would be sucked into a wormhole and planted on Sarisart 2,000 years into the past. She was spoon-fed information that convinced her that she was singlehandedly responsible for the creation of an entire civilization. Maybe it was her inflated ego, maybe it was the fact that the scenario included a hunky husband named Andrew, but she agreed to go through with it. After all, it was fate, right? And you can’t change fate, right? It all seemed so perfect. Too perfect. And she wanted it more than life itself. Andrin could have easily given her so much more information. He had all kinds of proof to substantiate his claims and she fell for it hook, line, and sinker 1. Language: English. Narrator: C. J. Boyle.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Wallace Tillinghast was a Worcester, Massachusetts businessman, and the originator of an airplane hoax in the early 1900s.Tillinghast announced the creation of the first, "heavier-than-air" flying craft in 1909. He explained that he had done more than one hundred flights with this machine under the cover of darkness. Tillinghast stated that he began flying under cover of darkness two months prior to his announcement, his first flight being between Worcester, Massachusetts, and New York City, New York, a distance of approximately 300 miles, where Tillinghast and his crew claimed to have circled the Statue of Liberty at 4,000 feet. At one point, the engines were said to have shut off, and the contraption glided through the air for forty-eight minutes while the mechanics made repairs. After which, they made their way back to Worcester, by way of a route taking them through Boston.

Once they were famous from the Atlantic to the Pacific. If you had asked any American school children in 1911 who Bud and Temple Abernathy were, they would have given you a look of disbelief. 'Everyone knows the Abernathy Boys,' they would have said. And they would have been correct, because the mounted adventures of the little Long Riders from Oklahoma Territory had taken the United States by storm. On their first equestrian journey in 1909 the tiny travelers, aged nine and five, encountered a host of Old West obstacles, including wolves and wild rivers, when they rode more than 1,000 miles from Oklahoma to Sante Fe and back - ALONE! The following year the intrepid brothers set their sights on New York City, which they reached after a month of hard riding. Along the way Orville Wright offered to take them up in his new-fangled airplane and President Taft gave them a warm welcome when they reached the White House. Kids envied them. Women adored them. Grown men pulled hair from their horses' tails to keep as souvenirs. This public frenzy culminated when Bud and Temple rode their Oklahoma ponies alongside Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders in a victory parade witnessed by more than a million cheering New Yorkers. Even though they were only six and ten years old, Temple and Bud Abernathy were a national sensation. In the summer of 1911, they did the impossible. They rode nearly 4,000 miles, from New York to San Francisco, in only sixty-two days. Once again, the Abernathy Boys had made a historic ride without any adult assistance and accomplished an equestrian feat which has never been equaled. Now this superbly-written version of their remarkable story, penned by a member of their family in 1910, has been reissued in conjunction with the creation of a life-sized statue being raised in honor of the world's youngest equestrian travelers. 'The Abernathy Boys were mounted heroes whose memory deserves to be cherished by a new generation of children and horse lovers,' said Basha O'Reilly, a Founder Member of The Guild and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, who rode from Russia to England. This new edition celebrates the equestrian legacy of Bud and Temple Abernathy.
