To the best of my knowledge, nothing opens AppleWorks database files except for AppleWorks, and AppleWorks - as you've discovered - doesn't run on Mac OS X versions higher than 10.6. Your options consist of getting access to a machine still running pre-Lion long enough to export to another format, or using the emulator SheepShaver to run Mac OS 9 on your machine and use AppleWorks under that environment to get at the data.
