At the age of five, British writer and naturalist Peter Marren had what he refers to as his Nabokov moment, catching a butterfly and feeling its dust between his fingers. As he writes, The hands of 5-year-olds are damp and clumsy. When the butterfly slithered and shot out from between my fingers, I noticed that some of its colours had been left behind on my sweaty palm, like the imprint of a chalk drawing. I held my hand up to the sun and watched the particles shine and flicker: orange, yellow and black, in shimmery, summery specks....Of all the inconsequential things that happened to me when I was 5 falling down the rockery, piling cold Yorkshire sand into my Mickey Mouse bucket, sniveling over my uneatable school dinner this one stays bright after all the others have faded... It was a Nabokov Moment because only he could put into words what most of us can only feel: the frankly sensual moment in a child s life when the full force of nature is felt for the first time. It marks the first time when, to your vast surprise, the colours and scents and sounds of the natural world seem to imprint themselves inside you . Rainbow Dust celebrates the role that butterflies have played in engaging humans in the wonders of the natural worldin collecting, in taxonomy, and more recently in conservation. Mr. Marren is a gifted storyteller, and he in this literary net he captures the joy of discovery, the challenges of taxonomy, and the perils of climate change."

Liebe, Freundschaft, ein Auserwählter und viel Magie Simon Snow ist der mächtigste Zauberer, den die Welt der Magie je hervorgebracht hat. Wäre da nur nicht die Tatsache, dass Simon völlig unfähig ist, seine magischen Kräfte zu steuern. Aber dafür ist ja Watford da, das Zaubererinternat. Für Simons Zimmergenossen Baz – Vampir aus angesehener Familie und Simon in freundlichem Hass zugetan – ist er, der Auserwählte, eine wahre Fehlbesetzung. Am liebsten würde Baz den Magie sprühenden Simon mit seinen spitzen Zähnen ein für alle Mal erledigen. Doch dazu kommt es nicht, vorerst zumindest. Denn die verfeindeten Jungs tun sich zusammen, um gemeinsam mit ihrer blitzgescheiten Schulkameradin Penelope den Mord an Baz' Mutter aufzuklären. Für Simon beginnt eine Achterbahn der Gefühle. Und die Welt der Zauberer steht fortan nicht nur in Liebesdingen kopf.

If you've always longed to strike out through the open country of northern Mexico armed with frying pan and bedroll, then this guide to the people, culture, folkways, landscape, and language of rural Mexico is for you. Out of twenty years of travel in backcountry Mexico, authors Bob Burleson and David Riskind have produced perhaps the most practical and accurate guide available for the unconventional tourist—the man or woman who prefers to get off the beaten path by foot, burro, mule, canoe, raft, or vehicle. Going well beyond the usual tourist guidebook entries, Backcountry Mexico will help you hire a guide and burro, navigate rural roads and trails, and communicate with the friendly and, sometimes, unfriendly folks you are likely to meet in a rural setting. In addition to English-Spanish and Spanish-English vocabulary lists containing both standard words and numerous terms relating to people, conditions, land, and situations not ordinarily encountered in tourists' lists, the authors have provided literally hundreds of helpful phrases and short conversations in easy-to-use sections arranged according to topics. Experienced unconventional travelers themselves, Burleson and Riskind have become experts in such subjects as "Eating and Staying Well on the Road, " "Camping in Mexico, " "Rural Mexican Village Life," and many more. Their experience, and the resultant wealth of language and cultural information contained in this guide, will help you to enjoy your trip ancd to better understand and appreciate the people and the land you visit. Throughout the book, the language examples are interwoven with beautifully illustrated anecdotes about culture and lifeways, so that the traveler is equipped with practical knowledge as well as appropriate behavior and speech. Fascinating in its treatment of a culture that is little known and unique in its coverage of rural-style Mexican Spanish, Backcountry Mexico will prove invaluable to anyone who ventures forth into northern Mexico.

From the bestselling author of The House of Hawthorne comes a historical fiction novel that gives life to the women behind novelist Ernest Hemingway in a “robust, tender story of love, grief, and survival on Key West in the 1930s.”* In Depression-era Key West, Mariella Bennet, the daughter of an American fisherman and a Cuban woman, knows hunger. Her struggle to support her family following her father’s death leads her to a bar and bordello, where she bets on a risky boxing match...and attracts the interest of two men: world-famous writer, Ernest Hemingway, and Gavin Murray, one of the WWI veterans who are laboring to build the Overseas Highway. When Mariella is hired as a maid by Hemingway’s second wife, Pauline, she enters a rarified world of lavish, celebrity-filled dinner parties and elaborate off-island excursions. As she becomes caught up in the tensions and excesses of the Hemingway household, the attentions of the larger-than-life writer become a dangerous temptation...even as straightforward Gavin Murray draws her back to what matters most. Will she cross an invisible line with the volatile Hemingway, or find a way to claim her own dreams? As a massive hurricane bears down on Key West, Mariella faces some harsh truths...and the possibility of losing everything she loves.

From the celebrated author of Big Fish comes an imaginative, moving novel about two sisters, their dark legacy, and the magical town that entwines them. Helen and Rachel McCallister, who live in a town called Roam, are as different as sisters can be: Helen, older, bitter, and conniving; Rachel, beautiful, naïve—and blind. When their parents die suddenly, Rachel has to rely on Helen for everything, but Helen embraces her role in all the wrong ways, convincing Rachel that the world is a dark and dangerous place she couldn’t possibly survive on her own…or so Helen believes, until Rachel makes a surprising choice that turns both their worlds upside down. In this new novel, southern literary master Daniel Wallace returns to the tradition of tall tales and folklore made memorable in his bestselling novel Big Fish. Wildly inventive and beautifully written, The Kings and Queens of Roam is a big-hearted tale of family and the ties that bind.
