The Angel Tree: The Enchanting Quest for the World's Oldest Olive Tree by Alex Dingwall-Main (Arcade) 3.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 51 minutes ago

A serendipitous, fender-bending encounter between the author, a distinguished landscape architect, and a wealthy Frenchman in Provence leads to the strangest, funniest horticultural odyssey in recent memory. The rich, eccentric Frenchman has just finished renovating, with great care and attention, a beautiful house in Provence. But the elegant courtyard looks very empty. “Find me the oldest olive tree in existence," he challenges the author, “and bring it back to take pride of place in my garden." The author's travels take him to the olive groves of France, the farms of Greece and Spain, and many backyards of Italy. Along the way, he encounters a 3,000-year-old tree, a farmer who won't sell his tree unless he can sell the farm that surrounds it, mafiosi skullduggery in the plant world, unscrupulous dealers, divided families, local weddings, farcical disasters, and a village that believes a drop of rain that has touched the leaves of the Angel Tree will cure any illness or sadness.

A Tale of Fengado by Dr Arun Gadre 2.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

I read the quote by a renowned social anthropologist Dr Margaret Mead. When a reporter asked her, "When do you declare that human civilization has started at this particular point while excavating?" Her answer was a typical one like roads, utensils, constructions etc. She declared "when I found a healed femur bone, I declare that the human civilization has started here!" That exceptional answer by Dr. Margaret Mead enthralled me! This answer implies that thousands of years back when man was living in jungles, in his primitive days, some person had actually lifted a wounded person to the cave, hunted and fed that wounded person for at least six months! I started wondering, who this person was? How did he take a stand against routinely accepted norm of leaving an injured mate behind to die? What turmoil had he gone through? How had he communicated his anguish to the others living with him when language was primitive? What caused him to do this strange and unique thing in the first ...

From David Adams Richards, winner of the Giller Prize and the Governor General's Award, comes a magnificent and haunting novel about the entwinement of remembered love and unforgotten hate. Spanning generations, River of the Brokenhearted tells the life and legacy of Janie McCleary, a strong-willed Irish Catholic girl who dares to marry a man from the Church of England. Their union is quickly deemed scandalous, and when her husband dies young, just before the Great Depression, Janie is left alone to raise a family and run a business—the first movie theater in town.

What put a white cop and a black youth on a tragic collision course? On a frigid winter's night in 1973, William “Rabbit" Wells, a young man of mixed race, was shot and killed by a white policeman named William Sorgie outside a bar. The shooting stunned the placid, prosperous communities of New York. For twenty-five years author William Loizeaux, who went to high school with Rabbit, hasn't been able to let go of a story that struck at the core of the place that he, along with Rabbit and Sorgie, called home. With clear-eyed compassion and unsparing honesty, The Shooting of Rabbit Wells recreates the lives of both victim and killer and the forces that brought them together. By giving us the life of Rabbit Wells, Loizeaux makes us understand—and feel—how unacceptable and irreparable his loss was, and how deeply the bullet that killed him is lodged in the American identity.

Martial Arts on Noah's Ark The Genesis Origins of Today's Martial Arts It has long been held that the ways of the East-Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism and Taoism are the primary foundations of today's martial arts. This vision is only partially correct. These positions come from an Evolutionary view that began at the Tower of Babel under King Nimrod. From a Genesis perspective, MNArk takes popular martial myths and traces their roots to today's arts. Genesis reveals how the first arts arose, from Cain the first spearman to the world's first arms dealer iron-master Kung Fu artist Tubal-Cain (god Vulcan), to the initial Lo-Han (Ham, Noah's son) art, a powerful form. It is from Ham's family that the ancient science of Lohan "Buddha" style Kung Fu derives, Lohan influencing the very foundations of Shaolin Kung Fu that affects myriads of arts still such as Karate. This exceptional volume will inspire both student and instructor alike in light of the teachings of the great Martial ...

The Dead Secret: A Novel by Wilkie Collins (Arcade) 4.0 Stars (168 Reviews)    Price verified 18 hours ago

Wilkie Collins was the first great detective novelist. His dark and complex mysteries influenced the work of other writers, such as Anthony Trollope and Charles Dickens, with whom he developed a close personal friendship. Swinburne found his work worthy of serious criticism, and T. S. Eliot credits him even more than Poe with the invention of the modern detective novel and the popular thriller. Before such works as The Woman in White, The Moonstone, Armadale, and No Name, Collins demonstrates the full range of his talents for intricate plot and dramatic suspense in The Dead Secret, one of his earliest novels. Like much of Collins's work, The Dead Secret explores the consequences of a single, hidden act. The Cornish mansion Porthgenna harbors the secret of such an act, one that has ruined the life of the servant girl Sarah Leeson. This same secret lies hidden for fifteen years until the heiress to Porthgenna, Rosamund Treverton, returns and exposes it. Her detective work may reveal ...

The exploration, settlement, exploitation, and conflicts of the "American Old West" form a unique tapestry of events, which has been celebrated by Americans and foreigners alike -- in art, music, dance, novels, magazines, short stories, poetry, theater, video games, movies, radio, television, song, and oral tradition. Many historians of the American West have written about the mythic West; the west of western literature, art and of people's shared memories. But Frederic Paxson's book takes us through the era when the American frontier was undergoing a massive transformation and when the decades old struggles of the Native Americans were finally beginning to make a dent in the old white American history... Frederic Logan Paxson was a Pulitzer Prize winning American historian and an authority on the American frontier.
