For well over thirty years, Eric P. Kelly’s Newbery Award winner has brought the color and romance of ancient times to young readers. Today, The Trumpeter of Krakow is an absorbing and dramatic as when it was first published in 1928. There was something about the Great Tarnov Crystal...Wise men spoke of it in hushed tones. Others were ready to kill for it. Now a murderous Tartar chief is bent on possessing it. But young Joseph Charnetski was bound by an ancient oath to protect the jewel at all costs. When Joseph and his family seek refuge in medieval Krakow, they are caught up in the plots and intrigues of alchemists, hypnotists, and a dark messenger of evil. Will Joseph be able to protect the crystal, and the city, from the plundering Tartars?

Im Auge des Bösen Die Angst geht um unter den polnischen Einwanderern in Aberdeen. Keiner weiß, wer von ihnen als nächstes mit ausgestochenen Augen und mehr tot als lebendig irgendwo in der Stadt gefunden wird. Die Briefe, die der Täter an die Polizei schickt, lassen jedenfalls keinen Zweifel daran, dass er auf der Jagd nach immer neuen Opfern ist. Von denen kann oder will keiner den Ermittlern weiterhelfen, und der einzige Zeuge ist ein Pädophiler auf der Flucht. DS Logan McRae und seine Kollegen stehen unter gewaltigem Druck, der noch verstärkt wird durch den Verdacht der Korruption in den eigenen Reihen. Zu allem Überfluss ist McRae auch noch ins Visier von Aberdeens mächtigster Unterweltgröße geraten – der Sommer in der Stadt aus Granit verspricht heiß zu werden ...

“A Michener epic is far more than a bedtime reader, it’s an experience. Poland is a monumental effort, a magnificent guide to a better understanding of the country’s tribulations.”—Chicago Tribune In this sweeping novel, James A. Michener chronicles eight tumultuous centuries as three Polish families live out their destinies. The Counts Lubonski, the petty nobles Bukowksi, and the peasants Buk are at some times fiercely united, at others tragically divided. With an inspiring tradition of resistance to brutal invaders, from the barbarians to the Nazis, and a heritage of pride that burns through eras of romantic passion and courageous solidarity, their common story reaches a breathtaking culmination in the historic showdown between the ruthless Communists and rebellious farmers of the modern age. Like the heroic land that is its subject, Poland teems with vivid events, unforgettable characters, and the unfolding drama of an entire nation. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Centennial. Praise for Poland “Engrossing . . . a page-turner in the grand Michener tradition.”—The Washington Post “Stunning . . . an unmatched overview of Polish history . . . The families themselves come very much alive, and through them, Poland itself.”—USA Today “A titanic documentary novel.”—The Wall Street Journal
