Excerpt from Historic Houses and Spots: In Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Near-by Towns For more than twelve years I have been searching out and studying the most ancient homes of Cambridge and other historic towns and cities near by, for the benefit of the pupils under my charge. As we made our annual rounds, the disappearance of old landmarks became, year by year, more noticeable, and thus it occurred to me that a favor might be conferred upon many by giving in this modest little work definite location and brief account of the most famous old houses. TO the schoolchildren of Cam bridge and other places this work may be specially useful, supplemented as it is by original and picturesque views, and also by brief references to famous persons with whose names some of the houses are associated.

It seems that ever since mankind was kicked out of the Garden of Eden for eating the forbidden fruit, we´ve been trying to get back in. Or, at least, we´ve been wondering where the garden might have been. St. Augustine had a theory, and so did medieval monks, John Calvin, and Christopher Columbus. But when Darwin´s theory of evolution permanently altered our understanding of human origins, shouldn´t the search for a literal Eden have faded away? Not so fast. In Paradise Lust, Brook Wilensky-Lanford introduces readers to the enduring modern quest to locate the Garden of Eden on Earth. It is an obsession that has consumed Mesopotamian archaeologists, German Baptist ministers, British irrigation engineers, and the first president of Boston University, among many others. These quixotic Eden seekers all started with the same brief Bible verses, but each ended up at a different spot on the globe: Florida, the North Pole, Ohio, China, and, of course, Iraq. Evocative of Tony Horwitz and Sarah Vowell, Wilensky-Lanford writes of these unusual characters and their searches with sympathy and wit. Charming, enlightening, and utterly unique, Paradise Lust is a century-spanning history that will take you to places you never imagined. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Christine Marshall.

A deeply panoramic tour of the night, from its brightest spots to the darkest skies we have left.A starry night is one of nature´s most magical wonders. Yet in our artificially lit world, three-quarters of Americans´ eyes never switch to night vision and most of us no longer experience true darkness. In The End of Night, Paul Bogard restores our awareness of the spectacularly primal, wildly dark night sky and how it has influenced the human experience across everything from science to art. From Las Vegas´ Luxor Beam - the brightest single spot on this planet - to nights so starlit the sky looks like snow, Bogard blends personal narrative, natural history, science, and history to shed light on the importance of darkness - what we´ve lost, what we still have, and what we might regain - and the simple ways we can reduce the brightness of our nights tonight. ungekürzt.

A story from the untiring pen of Jules Verne has always been welcomed from a very wide circle of readers. No one that we ever knew has yet tired of the wwards works. He takes his characters through the wildest and most improbable (to say no more) incidents, and yet he describes everything as though it were not only probable, but actually true, and while we are deep in one of his stories we believe everything that we read. Captain Antifers father had befriended an Egyptian prisoner at Ja?, Ramylk lasha, and many years after he received a mysterious document naming latitude 24 degrees 59 minutes north, and saying that the longitude would follow later. It never did; but Antifer succeeded in discovering it, and had a series ofmost exciting adventures in searching for the wealth which was to be found on the spot indicated. The story, which is thrillingly interesting from beginning to end, is lavishly illustrated.

Karen was in her late 40s but kept herself up very well. She could easily compete with the young 20-something year olds out there. But, her knowledge and elegance, just the way she carried herself with confidence, made her rise above those young, tight 20-year-olds. She had been in the dominatrix business since her 20s and even though she had quite a nice list of clientele, she was always searching for more and for more ways to please her clients. Make sure you kiss every spot...I´d be insulted if you missed something. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Kat Black.
