THE COMPLETE WORKS OF E. F. BENSON (Illustrated Edition) by E. F. Benson Book Resume:

Musaicum Books presents to you this carefully created collection of 'THE COMPLETE WORKS OF E. F. BENSON (Illustrated Edition)'. This ebook has been designed and formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Edward Frederic Benson (1867-1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist, archaeologist and short story writer, known professionally as E.F. Benson. He started his novel writing career in 1893 with the fashionably controversial Dodo, which was an instant success, and followed it with a variety of satire and romantic and supernatural melodrama. He repeated the success of Dodo, with sequels to this novel, but the greatest success came relatively late in his career with The Mapp and Lucia series consisting of six novels and two short stories. The novels feature humorous incidents in the lives of (mainly) upper-middle-class British people in the 1920s and 1930s, vying for social prestige and one-upmanship in an atmosphere of extreme cultural snobbery. Benson was also known as a writer of atmospheric, oblique, and at times humorous or satirical ghost stories.

Pepyss Navy by J. D. Davies Book Resume:

This new reference book describes every aspect the English navy in the second half of the seventeenth century, from the time when the Fleet Royal was taken into Parliamentary control after the defeat of Charles I, until the accession of William and Mary in 1689 when the long period of war with the Dutch came to an end. This is a crucial era which witnessed the creation of a permanent naval service, in essence the birth of the Royal Navy.Every aspect of the navy is covered - naval administration, ship types and shipbuilding, naval recruitment and crews, seamanship and gunnery, shipboard life, dockyards and bases, the foreign navies of the period, and the three major wars which were fought against the Dutch in the Channel and the North Sea. Samuel Pepys, whose thirty years of service did so much to replace the ad hoc processes of the past with systems for construction and administration, is one of the most significant players, and the navy which was, by 1690, ready for the 100 years of global struggle with the French owed much to his tireless work.This book is destined to become a major work for historians, naval enthusiasts and, indeed, anyone with an interest in this colourful era of the seventeenth century.

Rebel Yell by S. C. Gwynne Book Resume:

Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the epic New York Times bestselling account of how Civil War general Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson became a great and tragic national hero. Stonewall Jackson has long been a figure of legend and romance. As much as any person in the Confederate pantheon—even Robert E. Lee—he embodies the romantic Southern notion of the virtuous lost cause. Jackson is also considered, without argument, one of our country’s greatest military figures. In April 1862, however, he was merely another Confederate general in an army fighting what seemed to be a losing cause. But by June he had engineered perhaps the greatest military campaign in American history and was one of the most famous men in the Western world. Jackson’s strategic innovations shattered the conventional wisdom of how war was waged; he was so far ahead of his time that his techniques would be studied generations into the future. In his “magnificent Rebel Yell…S.C. Gwynne brings Jackson ferociously to life” (New York Newsday) in a swiftly vivid narrative that is rich with battle lore, biographical detail, and intense conflict among historical figures. Gwynne delves deep into Jackson’s private life and traces Jackson’s brilliant twenty-four-month career in the Civil War, the period that encompasses his rise from obscurity to fame and legend; his stunning effect on the course of the war itself; and his tragic death, which caused both North and South to grieve the loss of a remarkable American hero.

Major Impossible (Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales #9) by Nathan Hale Book Resume:

The ninth book in the bestselling series tells the story of John Wesley Powell, the one-armed geologist who explored the Grand Canyon John Wesley Powell (1834–1902) always had the spirit of adventure in him. As a young man, he traveled all over the United States exploring. When the Civil War began, Powell went to fight for the Union, and even after he lost most of his right arm, he continued to fight until the war was over. In 1869 he embarked with the Colorado River Exploring Expedition, ten men in four boats, to float through Grand Canyon. Over the course of three months, the explorers lost their boats and supplies, nearly drowned, and were in peril on multiple occasions. Ten explorers went in, only six came out. Powell would come to be known as one of the most epic explorers in history! Equal parts gruesome and hilarious, this latest installment in the bestselling series takes readers on an action-packed adventure through American history.

Rich Man, Poor Man by Irwin Shaw Book Resume:

This New York Times–bestselling saga of two brothers in postwar America, the basis for the classic miniseries, is “a book you can’t put down” (The New York Times). Siblings Rudy, Tom, and Gretchen Jordache grow up in a small town on the Hudson River. They’re in their teens in the 1940s, too young to go to war but marked by it nevertheless. Their father is the local baker, and nothing suggests they will live storied lives. Yet, in this sprawling saga, each member of the family pushes against the grain of history and confronts the perils and pleasures of a world devastated by conflict and transformed by American commerce and culture. A memorable novel by one of America’s greatest twentieth-century authors, Rich Man, Poor Man offers a gripping ride through America between the Second World War and Vietnam. It was made into one of the first primetime TV mini-series, and starred Nick Nolte, Peter Strauss, and Susan Blakely. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Irwin Shaw including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

Business in Great Waters by John Terraine Book Resume:

Twice within 25 years Britain was threatened with starvation by the menace of the U-Boat. In this study of submarine warfare, the author explains why Winston Churchill wrote "the only thing that ever frightened me during the war was the U-Boat peril". Until it had been overcome, the Anglo-American entry into Europe in 1944 would have been impossible. John Terraine concentrates on the combatants themselves, both German and Allied, but does not overlook the three main factors in the equation—the political, the military and the technological, as well as the intelligence, the weapons and the devices both sides employed in order to outwit each other. He also focuses on the fighting men on either side, seeing the action from "where it was at".

Blood by Douglas Starr Book Resume:

Essence and emblem of life--feared, revered, mythologized, and used in magic and medicine from earliest times--human blood is now the center of a huge, secretive, and often dangerous worldwide commerce. It is a commerce whose impact upon humanity rivals that of any other business--millions of lives have been saved by blood and its various derivatives, and tens of thousands of lives have been lost. Douglas Starr tells how this came to be, in a sweeping history that ranges through the centuries. With the dawn of science, blood came to be seen as a component of human anatomy, capable of being isolated, studied, used. Starr describes the first documented transfusion: In the seventeenth century, one of Louis XIV's court physicians transfers the blood of a calf into a madman to "cure" him. At the turn of the twentieth century a young researcher in Vienna identifies the basic blood groups, taking the first step toward successful transfusion. Then a New York doctor finds a way to stop blood from clotting, thereby making all transfusion possible. In the 1930s, a Russian physician, in grisly improvisation, successfully uses cadaver blood to help living patients--and realizes that blood can be stored. The first blood bank is soon operating in Chicago. During World War II, researchers, driven by battlefield needs, break down blood into usable components that are more easily stored and transported. This "fractionation" process--accomplished by a Harvard team--produces a host of pharmaceuticals, setting the stage for the global marketplace to come. Plasma, precisely because it can be made into long-lasting drugs, is shipped and traded for profit; today it is a $5 billion business. The author recounts the tragic spread of AIDS through the distribution of contaminated blood products, and describes why and how related scandals have erupted around the world. Finally, he looks at the latest attempts to make artificial blood. Douglas Starr has written a groundbreaking book that tackles a subject of universal and urgent importance and explores the perils and promises that lie ahead.

L’appel de la forêt by Jack London Book Resume:

Un des chefs d'oeuvre de Jack London, un grand classique de la littérature de jeunesse. Buck, un croisé de terre-neuve et de colley âgé de 4 ans et demi et pesant 70 kg, appartient à un magistrat de la vallée de Santa Clara (Haute-Californie). Loin d'avoir une «vie de chien», Buck coule une existence heureuse dans la famille du juge Miller. Mais tout bascule le jour où, victime de la traîtrise d'un homme, il se retrouve vendu à un conducteur de traîneau dans le Grand Nord américain. Finie la vie d'aristocrate blasé, Buck va devoir affronter son destin dans un univers glacial et sans pitié, où chaque faute, chaque erreur est sévèrement sanctionnée. Saura-t-il survivre dans ce monde cruel où règne la loi du plus fort? Qu'adviendra-t-il de cet admirable chien le jour où il découvrira, d'abord avec amertume, puis avec un plaisir trouble et instinctif, le goût du sang ? Extrait : Étourdi, souffrant cruellement de sa gorge et de sa langue meurtries, à moitié étranglé, Buck voulut faire face à ses tourmenteurs. Mais la corde eut raison de ses résistances ; on réussit enfin à limer le lourd collier de cuivre marqué au nom du juge. Alors les deux hommes lui retirèrent la corde et le jetèrent dans une caisse renforcée de barreaux de fer. Il y passa une triste nuit, ressassant ses douleurs et ses outrages. Il ne comprenait rien à tout cela. Que lui voulaient ces hommes ? Pourquoi le maltraitaient-ils ainsi ? Au moindre bruit il dressait les oreilles, croyant voir paraître le juge ou tout au moins un de ses fils. Mais lorsqu'il apercevait la face avinée du cabaretier, ou les yeux louches de son compagnon de route, le cri joyeux qui tremblait dans sa gorge se changeait en un grognement profond et sauvage.

Quand il arrive en Californie, trois ans plus tard, il ne parle que l'italien. Dans un contexte de dépression économique, peu de perspectives d'avenir s'offrent à lui. C'est son inscription dans l'équipe scolaire de course de fond qui changera sa vie à tout jamais. Il devient alors une gloire locale et participe aux jeux Olympiques de 1936.

A son retour aux Etats-Unis, il est considéré par ses proches comme un héros. Toutefois, son traumatisme est tel qu'il plonge dans l'alcool et la violence. Sa rédemption vient alors de sa foi et de son premier amour : la course. Ce livre témoigne du parcours prodigieux d'un champion pris dans la tourmente d'une période historique chaotique.

Premièrement, son pelage est aussi bleu que le ciel – ciel qu’il n’avait jamais vu jusqu’ici, bien qu’il l’ait souvent croisé dans ses lectures. Car oui, vous avez bien lu : Isaiah sait lire et écrire lui aussi. Il peut également parler aux humains... si tant est qu’ils acceptent de tendre l’oreille et l’écouter ! Après s’être échappé d’un mystérieux laboratoire, Isaiah a été séparé de sa famille. Pour la retrouver, il doit affronter les nombreux dangers du monde extérieur. Pas facile pour une petite souris de s’en sortir seule, dans un monde fait de chats cruels, de hiboux affamés et d’humains terrifiés... Heureusement, Isaiah peut compter sur l’aide d’Hailey, une fillette aussi seule et originale que lui. Ensemble, ils apprennent que l’amitié peut franchir tous les obstacles.
