It was one of the most exciting periods in history. The impact of Gutenberg books was starting to be felt. Martin Luther was soon to touch-off the Reformation; and a wild-eyed adventurer by the name of Christopher Columbus was about to make obsolete every world map of his day. This is the story of Columbus, but it is not told through the eyes of an academic or an historian. It is told by a simple sailor-a Christian of secret Jewish ancestry-whose hopes and fears not only makes the story more engaging, but all the more realistic. From the fear and confusion of the first voyage, to the clash of the European and native American cultures, to Columbus' final vindication, Mary Johnston's talent for combining adventure and historical detail is at its finest. Everyone knows the story of Christopher Columbus, now read it from a whole new-and enormously refreshing-perspective. "We have come to expect first-rate writing from Mary Johnston; but what surprises is the sheer emotional power of the book."

To this region the story of little Bissula leads us...

A Study in Scarlet

Introduction by Anne Perry Includes newly commissioned endnotes ? In 1887, a young Arthur Conan Doyle published A Study in Scarlet, creating an international icon in the quick-witted sleuth Sherlock Holmes. In this very first Holmes mystery, the detective introduces himself to Dr. John H. Watson with the puzzling line ?You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive,? and so begins Watson?s, and the world?s, fascination with this enigmatic character. In A Study in Scarlet, Doyle presents two equally perplexing mysteries for Holmes to solve: one a murder that takes place in the shadowy outskirts of London, in a locked room where the haunting word Rache is written upon the wall, the other a kidnapping set in the American West. Picking up the ?scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life,? Holmes demonstrates his uncanny knack for finding the truth, tapping into powers of deduction that still captivate readers today.

An Autobiography by Theodore Roosevelt: Complete and Unabridged With Appendices and Notes

The acclaimed autobiography of Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt is brought to the reader anew in this well-produced edition, inclusive of all notes and appendices. Written over years and published in 1913, this lengthy yet engrossing biography sees one of the United States finest Presidents recount his life in his own words. Theodore Roosevelt sets out events in a way which clarify how he came to possess his beliefs. We hear of his love of the great outdoors which would in turn result in the establishment of America's national parks, and his belief in commerce as an engine for progress which would lead to the state-sponsored construction of the Panama Canal during his presidency. Seldom straying to dryness or heady description of the many and varied events of his life, Theodore Roosevelt instead imbues every chapter with keynote personality and liveliness. Personal letters with influential figures are shared, placing the reader deep in the political world which this popular, charismatic leader was immersed.
