In this updated edition of the highly acclaimed Tour de France, Graeme Fife sets the 2012 race in the context of the event's remarkable history, stretching back to July 1903. Combining meticulous research with a pacy narrative style, he penetrates the mystique of the race and paints a colourful picture of the men whose exploits have given the Tour an enduring universal appeal. Moreover, the book now celebrates a truly historic event: The 99th edition of the race was won, for the first time, by a Briton. Bradley Wiggins pedalled into the record books, in company with his teammates Christopher Froome, who came second, and Mark Cavendish, the current world road race champion, whose 23 stage wins make him make him the Tour's most prolific sprinter. Laced with tales of great solo rides, amazing fortitude, terrible misfortune and triumph, Tour de France is the definitive account of this extraordinary competition. Named one of the top-five sports books of the year by both The Independent and The Times, it is the essential guide to the Tour. Graeme Fife is a full-time writer who has worked much in radio and written a number of books, including Inside the Peloton and The Beautiful Machine. A keen cyclist, he has ridden all the celebrated cols of Tour legend. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Wickham. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/015686/bk_adbl_015686_sample.mp3.

Learn about one of the most popular novelists of the 20th century in this well written, informative introduction. Perhaps best known for his seven-book children's series The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis also wrote extensively on religious topics concerning Christianity. Born to religious parents in Ireland, Lewis lost his faith as a young man but rediscovered it later in life through conversations with his friend and fellow author J.R.R. Tolkien. Lewis incorporated the central Christian virtues of fortitude, honesty, and faith into much of his work, including the Narnia books and The Screwtape Letters. His masterful ability to connect with audiences young and old continues to draw new readers and listeners, rightfully making C.S. Lewis one of modern literature's great names. This revised edition of C.S. Lewis delves into this thoughtful man's life, his well-known works, and his writings' influence on other writers. The book is published by Chelsea House Publishers, a leading publisher of educational material. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Julie Williams.

Kill 'Em and Leave: Searching for James Brown a...

“You won’t leave this hypnotic book without feeling that James Brown is still out there, howling.” (The Boston Globe) One of NPR’s Best Books of the Year • Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist Kill ’Em and Leave is more than a book about James Brown. Brown embodied the contradictions of American life: He was an unsettling symbol of the tensions between North and South, black and white, rich and poor. After receiving a tip that promises to uncover the man behind the myth, James McBride goes in search of the “real” James Brown. McBride’s travels take him to forgotten corners of Brown’s never-before-revealed history, illuminating not only our understanding of the immensely troubled, misunderstood, and complicated Godfather of Soul, but the ways in which our cultural heritage has been shaped by Brown’s enduring legacy. “A tour de force of cultural reportage.” (The Seattle Times) “Thoughtful and probing.” (The New York Times Book Review) “Masterly...powerful.” (Los Angeles Review of Books) “McBride provides something lacking in most of the books about James Brown: an intimate feeling for the musician, a veracious if inchoate sense of what it was like to be touched by him.... It may be as close [to ‘the real James Brown’] as we’ll ever get.” (David Hajdu, The Nation) “A feat of intrepid journalistic fortitude.” (USA Today) “[McBride is] the biographer of James Brown we’ve all been waiting for.... McBride’s true subject is race and poverty in a country that doesn’t want to hear about it, unless compelled by a voice that demands to be heard.” (Boris Kachka, New York) 1. Language: English.

On a hillside near the cosy Irish village of Glennkill, a flock of sheep gather around their beloved shepherd George, who lies murdered, his body pinned to the pasture with a spade. Fortunately, George has left behind an unusually intelligent group of sheep. Every night since they were lambs, he has read aloud to them – fairy tales, factual books about ovine disease, even detective stories – in order to help them sleep. Faced with a real-life investigation, the flock spring into action. They are led with fortitude by Miss Maple, the cleverest sheep in Glennkill and possibly the world, She is aided by Cordelia, who loves long words; and Othello, a ram with a dark past. Together they uncover the truth behind the life and death of their shepherd. Why did George tie little packets under their bellies before they crossed the meadow? And whose blood does Ham the butcher have on his hands? While some of the detectives insist on chewing the evidence, or even forgetting it, together they succeed in shedding the revelatory light on the inexplicable world of human beings, and even on themselves. 1.

On a dark night in the Mekong Delta, young platoon sergeant Edgar Eaton's courage and self-sacrifice would mean the difference between life and death for his wounded comrades. This is the story of Ed the sniper. Ed doesn't plan on serving as a sniper; the small-town Oregon boy hopes to become a combat medic when he enlists at age 19. Instead, he finds himself an infantryman in the unique Army / Navy Riverine Force in the Mekong Delta. Quickly rising to the rank of platoon sergeant, Ed becomes one of the first members of the US Army to be specifically trained to be a sniper. While Ed's actions on the night of April 3, 1969, have been celebrated in magazines, books, and a History Channel presentation, the full story of his combat service has never been told.

I wrote this introductory book based upon my real life experiences as a Cleveland real estate investor and flipper. I’ve been doing this since 2004 and have over 350 properties I did to this day.  There is nothing special about me or my real estate books, I just tell the truth - that’s my sales pitch. The truth is, this business is not for the light of heart. You need to be a very serious, fully committed person of strong mental fortitude to succeed in real estate cash flow or flipping, especially flipping. There are a lot of horrors that come with real estate wealth; the ones that can see through it can get really rich, sometimes fast.  Can you see past nightmare tenants? They can trash your apartment, bring bedbugs in, sue you, set up a meth lab, turn your driveway into a car washing lane!  Can you see through a trashed house to the finished product – knowing you have big money on the line? What about finding a buyer, what if the market changes? Appraisal? Financing? You think dealing with contractors is easy – do you really think they will respect you? HA! They won’t even show up for the first day of work. How about city inspectors... They love landlords! Professional property management companies are going to run the show for you, you can trust them. NO WAY! In fact, in my book, a professional management firm is guilty before proven innocent.  What experience do I have? Section 8 Income Expert (So simple and routine, so little competition)  Low Income Rentals ( The easiest money ever, if you know what you are doing)  New construction foreclosure properties (My last deal was only $25,000. That previously sold for $150,000... Yes, this was in 2017.)

You cannot sculpt a piece into a Player. A Player must mold himself out of fortitude and conviction. (Bjorn van Gelderan) After the events the first three books in Melissa McPhail's award-winning epic fantasy series, A Pattern of Shadow and Light, the realm of Alorin remains unbalanced. The Fifth Vestal, Bjorn van Gelderan, has cast his Players on the field. Now they must hold their positions against Malorin'athgul as well as their immortal allies. In Kandori...Prince Ean val Lorian is bound to Bjorn van Gelderan's game and to his sister Isabel, but Ean would rather be free of both of them. Yet he fears the game won't let him - nor will the man he used to be. Chained by guilt on one side and duty on the other, Ean chases memories through three kingdoms in an attempt to become a Player on his own terms. In Hallovia...Tanis of Adonnai has discovered his true identity and his nature as an Adept of four strands. He's bound himself to the Malorin'athgul Pelas and in turn bound Pelas to his uncle Bjorn van Gelderan's game. But will Pelas' ability to bend Fate to his will be enough to oppose the intentions of his brothers, Darshan and Shail? And will Pelas be able to keep Tanis safe from the immortal Warlock Sinarr, who vowed to go to any lengths to make Tanis his concubine? At the First Lord's sa'reyth...Prince Trell val Lorian has been rescued from the island of Darroyhan and the mor'alir Adept Taliah hal'Jaitar and is recovering at the First Lord's sanctuary. But while Trell is enjoying an overdue reunion with his betrothed, Alyneri, he suspects he cannot long remain off the field. If the game doesn't summon him back, his conscience will, for he owes his life to too many others. Primary among these is the Water Goddess Naiadithine. Trell can't help but wonder what the goddess will require of him in return for Her many graces...and if it will be a price he's willing to pay. As Bjorn's game intensifies and wars escalate, tho 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The stories of tragedy and sadness shared by old-timers (viejitos) in Fe y tragedias: Faith and Tragedy in Hispanic Villages of New Mexico are as diverse as the voices behind them. Each bilingual (Spanish and English) account personifies faith, fortitude, compassion, and buoyancy. Without these human attributes, people beset with tragedy would have succumbed to tragedy itself.The high point of interest in this book is not to promote or engage in doom and gloom. Rather, it is to acquaint and educate readers on how humble but strong and devout folks living in isolation-in most cases far removed geographically from an urban environment-coped with tragedy and despair. The net psychological effect of murder, drowning, the Rangers' indiscriminate and callous slaughtering of poor people's cattle, bewitchment, or the quirks of nature (e.g., baby born with frog features) on the human psyche was profound but not daunting. Tom Chávez's eloquent words in his Preface summed up best the old-timers' poignant past when he said, 'These are real people talking about real lives. They are witnesses to their own history.'If the victims of misfortune became heroes in their community, then the aggrieved surely could be categorized as tragic heroes. A more praiseworthy tribute could not be accorded these courageous and remarkable men and women who believed in redemption.For the past 30-plus years Nasario García has devoted his life to the preservation of Hispanic language, culture and folklore of New Mexico. He has authored/co-authored 21 books. Among them are-Old Las Vegas: Hispanic Memories from the New Mexico Meadowlands, winner of the Southwest Book Award; and Brujerías: Stories of Witchcraft and the Supernatural in the American Southwest and Beyond, a finalist in the New Mexico Book Awards.
