Based on a true story, this is the comedic saga of four Jamaican athletes going to extremes to compete as bobsled racers at the Winter Olympics. With few resources and virtually no clue about winter sports, it's an uphill course for this troupe from the tropics who are sliding on thin ice as they go for the gold in Calgary, Canada. Refusing to let anything stand in their way, these four Jamaicans enlist the help of a down-and-out ex-champion American slider named Irv. Unavoidably drawn back to a sport he had come to loathe, Irv is faced with coaching a team of complete novices. But once committed, he is determined to turn them around and to somehow right the wrongs of his own failed career. It's a bumpy ride but with pride, determination, and dignity, the bobsledders make their impossible dreams come true

4 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'eterna lotta tra Balthazar Blake e Maxim Horvath, stregoni una volta amici e poi rivali a causa (come sempre) di una donna il cui amore li ha divisi, dopo essersi dipanata per secoli tra incantesimi, trappole e prigionie in bambole russe è arrivata al giorno d'oggi a Manhattan, dove Balthazar ha trovato quello che probabilmente è la nuova incarnazione di Merlino. Il grande mago è stato il maestro di entrambi ed è l'unico a poter fermare la strega Morgana, che Horvath mira a liberare dal giogo cui l'ha costretta Balthazar. Certo, la nuova incarnazione di Merlino non è proprio quello che si direbbe un avventuriero, Dave infatti nasconde molto bene (anche a se stesso) i propri poteri e le proprie doti ed è più interessato a vivere una vita normale, magari con una ragazza, che a combattere maghi dal passato. Sarà necessario un lungo percorso di apprendistato presso Balthazar per scoprirsi erede di Merlino. (Mymovies)
