    The empire of the eagle : an illustrated natural history

This book, unlike any previous volume, encompasses each of the world's sixty-eight currently recognized eagle species, from the huge Steller's Sea Eagle that soars above Japan's winter ice floes to the diminutive Little Eagle that hunts over the Australian outback. Mike Unwin's vivid and authoritative descriptions combined with stunning photographs taken or curated by David Tipling deliver a fascinating and awe-inspiring volume. -- from Amazon.

    The french revolution from englightenment to tyranny

    Davidson, Ian

    In this riveting retelling the author provides a fresh look at this vital moment in European history. He reveals how it was an immensely complicated and multifaceted revolution, taking place in different places, at different times, and in different spheres, and how it subsequently became weighted with political, social, and moral values. Stirring and dramatic--and filled with the larger-than-life players of the period and evoking the turbulence of this colorful time--this is narrative history at its finest.

    Marooned in the Arctic : the true story of Ada Blackjack, the "female Robinson Crusoe"

    Caravantes, Peggy, 1935- author.

    "In 1921, four men ventured into the Arctic for a top-secret expedition: an attempt to claim uninhabited Wrangel Island in northern Siberia for Great Britain. With the men was a young Inuit woman named Ada Blackjack, who had signed on as cook and seamstress to earn money to care for her sick son. Conditions soon turned dire for the team when they were unable to kill enough game to survive. Three of the men tried to cross the frozen Chukchi Sea for help but were never seen again, leaving Ada with one remaining team member who soon died of scurvy. Determined to be reunited with her son, Ada learned to survive alone in the icy world by trapping foxes, catching seals, and avoiding polar bears. After she was finally rescued in August 1923, after two years total on the island, Ada became a celebrity, with newspapers calling her a real "female Robinson Crusoe." The first young adult book about Blackjack's remarkable story, Marooned in the Arctic includes sidebars on relevant topics of interest to teens, such as the uses of cats on ships, the phenomenon known as Arctic hysteria, and aspects of Inuit culture and beliefs. With excerpts from diaries, letters, and telegrams; historic photos; a map; source notes; and a bibliography; this is an indispensible resource for any young adventure lover, classroom, or library"-- Provided by publisher.

    No better friend, no worse enemy : the life of General James Mattis

    Proser, Jim, author.

    "When General James Mattis took command of the First Division in 2000, he took for their motto a paraphrase of Roman general Lucius Cornelius Sulla: "No better friend, no worse enemy." In 2003, General James N. Mattis shared a "Message to All Hands," to his soldiers. He shared with them the importance of the mission, the goal to act with honor, and ended with the motto he brought to his division from a paraphrase of Roman general Lucius Cornelius Sulla: "Demonstrate to the world that there is 'No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy' than a US Marine." Mattis was the first Trump presidential cabinet nominee and received nearly unanimous, bipartisan support for his nomination, with only one vote against. He received a rare waiver of the guidelines that exclude recently active military leaders from the position of Secretary of Defense. What could create such unprecedented unity, even enthusiasm, in the hyper-partisan political rancor of 2017? Beyond Mattis' obvious military competence for the position, he also possesses such personal integrity, fostering universal confidence. Told through Proser's insight and talent for storytelling, it is this unimpeachable character that is the primary subject of No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy. He leads with insight, humor, fighting courage and fierce compassion - not only for his fellow Marines who volunteer to follow him through hell's front door, but for the innocent victims of war. His martial and personal values have elevated him to the highest levels of personal success and earned him the trust of his Marines and many fellow Americans. We are stronger both from his service and his example."--Provided by publisher.
