Description :“Later than usual one summer morning in 1984 . . .” On California’s fog-hung North Coast, the enchanted redwood groves of Vineland County harbor a wild assortment of sixties survivors and refugees from the “Nixonian Reaction,” still struggling with the consequences of their past lives. Aging hippie freak Zoyd Wheeler is revving up for his annual act of televised insanity when news reaches that his old nemesis, sinister federal agent Brock Vond, has come storming into Vineland at the head of a heavily armed Justice Department strike force. Zoyd instantly disappears underground, but not before dispatching his teenage daughter Prairie on a dark odyssey into her secret, unspeakable past. . . . Freely combining disparate elements from American popular culture—spy thrillers, ninja potboilers, TV soap operas, sci-fi fantasies—Vineland emerges as what Salman Rushdie has called in The New York Times Book Review “that rarest of birds: a major political novel about what America has been doing to itself, to its children, all these many years.”

Description :A haunting, compelling historical novel, The Sea Road is a daring retelling of the 11th-century Viking exploration of the North Atlantic from the viewpoint of one extraordinary woman. Gudrid lives at the remote edge of the known world, in a starkly beautiful landscape where the sea is the only connection to the shores beyond. It is a world where the old Norse gods are still invoked even as Christianity gains favor, where the spirits of the dead roam the vast northern ice-fields, tormenting the living, and Viking explorers plunder foreign shores. Taking the accidental discovery of North America as its focal point, Gudrid's narrative describes a multilayered voyage into the unknown, all recounted with astonishing immediacy and rich atmospheric detail.

Description :Burnaby was a captain in the British Army who spent his winter leave of absence of 1876 riding 2000 miles through Asiatic Turkey, on the eve of the Russo-Turkish War. Burnaby questioned everyone he met regarding the imminent war; the author believed, from the impressions of his informants, that the Ottoman Empire would probably lose. By the time he published the account the Turkish Army had "gallantly withstood their foe. My reasons for arriving at the above-mentioned opinion will be found in these volumes. They merely contain a sort of verbal photograph ... of what I saw and heard during the journey."

Description :Five decades have now passed since a major university proudly announced the existence of the Vinland Map to the world. Hailed as the "oldest known map showing American lands," its publication was greeted with a wave of chaotic controversy. To this day, despite being widely denounced as a forgery, the Vinland Map still exercises a mysterious drawing power.In a detailed critical study, amateur researcher John Paul Floyd sets out his personal discoveries which expose the true scandals surrounding the Vinland Map. It is a story of a church library subjected to quiet pillage, of shady dealings in the antiquarian bookselling trade, of respectable institutions determined not to relinquish their spoils, of a police investigation intent on thwarting the return of stolen property. It is the story of ancient Icelandic tales, of Norse adventurers and of innocents accused of forgery. It is the story of medieval maps, misguided scholarship and a scientific debacle. It is a story of how experts have overlooked the obvious for fifty years. Nobody with even a passing interest in the Vinland Map controversy can afford to be unaware of the findings presented in "A Sorry Saga."

Description :How could a community of 2-3000 Viking peasants survive in Arctic Greenland for 430 years (ca. 985 - 1415), and why did they finally disappear? European agriculture in an Arctic environment met serious ecological challenges. The Norse peasants met them by adapting agricultural practices which they knew from the Atlantic and North Sea coast of Norway. Norse Greenland was the stepping stone for the Europeans who first discovered America and settled briefly in Newfoundland ca. AD 1000. The community had a global significance which surpassed its modest size. In the last decades scholars have been nearly unanimous in emphasising that long term climatic and environmental changes created a situation where Norse agriculture was no longer sustainable and the community was ruined. A secondary hypothesis has focused on ethnic confrontations between Norse peasants and Inuit hunters. In the last decades ethnic violence has been on the rise in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and parts of Africa. In some cases it has degenerated to ethnic cleansing. This has strengthened the interest for ethnic violence in past societies. Challenging traditional hypotheses is a source of progress in all science. The present book does this on the basis of relevant written and archaeological material respecting the methodology of both sciences.

Description :Living in the city of Kathmandu in the Kingdom of Nepal are dozens of American and British expatriates who are in love with the Himalayas. George Fergusson is one of them--he works as a trek guide for "Take You Higher, Ltd.", leading groups of tourists into the back country and occasionally assisting on serious climbs. George "Freds" Fredericks is another--a tall, easy-going American who converted to Buddhism while in college. He visited Nepal one year and never went home. The adventures started when George and Freds got together over the capture of a Yeti--an abominable snowman--by a scientific expedition. The thought of such a wild and mysterious creature in captivity--in prison--was too much for them to bear. And in freeing the Yeti, a great partnership was born. George and Freds will go on to greater heights as they explore the mysteries of Nepal, from Shangri-La to Kathmandu's governmental bureaucracy, in Escape from Kathmandu by Kim Stanley Robinson. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
