It was November 1806. The explorers had gone without food for one day, then two. Their leader, not yet thirty, drove on, determined to ascend the great mountain. Waist deep in snow, he reluctantly turned back. But Zebulon Pike had not been defeated. His name remained on the unclimbed peak-and new adventures lay ahead of him and his republic. In Citizen Explorer, historian Jared Orsi provides the first modern biography of this soldier and explorer, who rivaled contemporaries Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Born in 1779, Pike joined the army and served in frontier posts in the Ohio River valley before embarking on a series of astonishing expeditions. He sought the headwaters of the Mississippi and later the sources of the Arkansas and Red Rivers, which led him to Pike´s Peak and capture by Spanish forces. Along the way, he met Aaron Burr and General James Wilkinson; Auguste and Pierre Couteau, patriarchs of St. Louis´s most powerful fur-trading family, who sought to make themselves indispensable to Jefferson´s administration; as well as British fur-traders, Native Americans, and officers of the Spanish empire, all of whom resisted the expansion of the United States. Through Pike´s life, Orsi examines how American nationalism thinned as it stretched west, from the Jeffersonian idealism on the Atlantic to a practical, materialist sensibility on the frontier. Surveying and gathering data, Pike sought to incorporate these distant territories into the republic, to overlay the west with the American map grid; yet he became increasingly dependent for survival on people who had no attachment to the nation he served. He eventually died in that service, in a victorious battle in the War of 1812. Written from an environmental perspective, rich in cultural and political context, Citizen Explorer is a state-of-the-art biography of a remarkable man. 1. Language: English.

This audio includes two full meditation sessions: Firstly to help you to let go of anxiety and second to clear your chakras and bring full body relaxation. Anxiety is a word we use to describe feelings of unease, worry, and fear. It incorporates both the emotions and the physical sensations we might experience when we are worried or nervous about something. Although we usually find it unpleasant, anxiety is related to the ´´fight or flight´´ response - our normal biological reaction to feeling threatened. We all know what it´s like to feel anxious from time to time. It´s common to feel tense, nervous and perhaps fearful at the thought of a stressful event or decision you´re facing - especially if it could have a big impact on your life. For example: Sitting an exam Going into hospital Attending an interview Starting a new job Moving away from home Having a baby Being diagnosed with an illness Deciding to get married or divorced In situations like these it´s understandable to have worries about how you will perform, or what the outcome will be. For a short time you might even find it hard to sleep, eat, or concentrate. This short meditation is designed to help you to deal with anxiety through exercises to relax the body and the mind while focusing on your breathing. Your chakras are energy centres located within and around your body which get blocked for various different reasons. Your way of thinking has a big influence on your chakras. Negative thinking can block their flow and positive thinking helps them flow freely. In this meditation you will cleanse and clear your seven major chakras. Virginia Harton will gently guide you through each chakra during this guided meditation. The intention for this chakra meditation is that all of your chakras will be cleansed and you will feel total body relaxation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Virginia Harton.
