A Short History Of Nearly Everything

A Short History Of Nearly Everything

de Bill Bryson

In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bryson follows his greatest challenge yet: to understand—and, if possible, answer—the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. From the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. The result is a profound, funny, and wonderfully clear and entertaining adventure into the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it.

King Leopold’S Ghost

King Leopold’S Ghost

de Adam Hochschild

In the 1880s, as the European powers were carving up Africa, King Leopold II of Belgium seized for himself the vast and mostly unexplored territory surrounding the Congo River. Carrying out a genocidal plundering of the Congo, he looted its rubber, brutalized its people, and ultimately slashed its population by ten million--all the while shrewdly cultivating his reputation as a great humanitarian. Heroic efforts to expose these crimes eventually led to the first great human rights movement of the... Leer más sobre este artículo
The Places In Between

The Places In Between

de Rory Stewart

In January 2002 Rory Stewart walked across Afghanistan-surviving by his wits, his knowledge of Persian dialects and Muslim customs, and the kindness of strangers. By day he passed through mountains covered in nine feet of snow, hamlets burned and emptied by the Taliban, and communities thriving amid the remains of medieval civilizations. By night he slept on villagers' floors, shared their meals, and listened to their stories of the recent and ancient past. Along the way Stewart met heroes and rogues,... Leer más sobre este artículo

African Game Trails

African Game Trails

de Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt declined to run for reelection as President of the United States in 1908.

Scribner's magazine underwrote the trip by paying $50,000 for twelve articles. It is these articles that eventually became African Game Trails.In April 1909, T.R. and his son...

The White Spider

The White Spider

de Harrer, Heinrich

The White Spider dramatically recreates not only the harrowing, successful ascent made by Harrer and his comrades in 1938, but also the previous, tragic attempts at a wall of rock that was recently enshrined in mountaineer Jon Krakauer's first work, Eiger Dreams.
