Описание: Whether forming a pirate gang to search for buried treasure or spending a quiet time at home, sharing his medicine with Aunt Polly's cat, the irrepressible Tom Sawyer evokes the world of boyhood in nineteenth century rural America. In this classic story, Mark Twain re-created a long-ago world of freshly whitewashed fences and Sunday school picnics into which sordid characters and violent incidents sometimes intruded. The tale powerfully appeals to both adult and young imaginations. Readers explore this memorable setting with a slyly humorous born storyteller as their guide. Tom and Huck Finn conceal themselves in the town cemetery, where they witness a grave robbery and a murder. Later, the boys, feeling unappreciated, hide out on a forested island while the townspeople conduct a frantic search and finally mourn them as dead. The friends triumphantly return to town to attend their own funeral, in time for a dramatic trial for the graveyard murder. A three-day ordeal ensues when Tom and his sweetheart, Becky Thatcher, lose their way in the very cave that conceals the murderer. With its hilarious accounts of boyish pranks and its shrewd assessments of human nature, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer has captivated generations of readers of all ages. This inexpensive edition of the classic novel offers a not-to-be-missed opportunity to savor a witty and action-packed account of small-town boyhood in a bygone era.

Автор: Bakeless, John Название: Lewis and Clark: Partners in Discovery ISBN: 0486292339 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780486292335 Издательство: Dover Рейтинг: Цена: 2062 р. Наличие на складе: Нет в наличии.
Описание: This is the first authoritative biography of the two great explorers charged by President Thomas Jefferson with exploring the lands beyond the headwaters of the Mississippi in 1803. In writing the work, Dr. Bakeless, noted American historian, drew on his own exhaustive field research as well as a wealth of original documents, including diaries kept by expedition members. These recorded not only the bold outlines of the trip with its Indian fights and other perils, but also such fascinating details as the number of buffaloes eaten, grizzly bears fought, the variety of plants and seeds collected, and the customs and lore of the Indian tribes. The expedition was planned with military precision down to the last grain of powder, but in the final analysis it was the courage and resourcefulness of the two leaders that kept the party together for three years. Their perseverance and "horse sense" in the face of incredible obstacles and hardships was largely responsible for the success of the undertaking, which in turn buttressed Jefferson's vision of a United States stretching beyond the Continental Divide to the shores of the Pacific. Clear and well written, Dr. Bakeless' book contains an immense amount of material unknown before its original publication, and the whole work is informed with the author's fresh insights and keen perceptions. It will be welcomed by historians and students of American history but it will also be read with great enjoyment by anyone interested in the two remarkable men who led one of the most important and influential expeditions in the annals of exploration.

Where do raindrops come from? What happens when they hit the sea? What significant events occur where sea and air meet? Research scientist Duncan Blanchard -- a Fellow of both the American Meteorological Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science -- examines these and many other questions in an effort to promote a better understanding of the atmospheric sciences. In the course of his investigation, he takes readers into the realms of meteorology, oceanography, physics, chemistry, and volcanology. In this popular treatment, Dr. Blanchard probes an exciting array of topics, among them The Flight of the Raindrops; The Surface of the Sea; Expulsion from Flatland; Electricity from the Sea; Volcanoes, Sea Water, and Electricity; and A Volcano at the Surface of the Sea. Readers are invited to perform experiments described in the text -- most of which can be carried out with a minimum of equipment. Presented in layman's language and filled with photographs and illustrations that enhance understanding, this book is a fascinating look at the workings of nature.
