Amelia Earhart

20 Hours, 40 Min: Our Flight in the Friendship

Book Description Commemorating the 75th anniversary of her first flight across the Atlantic Ocean, 20 Hrs., 40 Min. reintroduces Amelia Earhart?one of the most fascinating figures of the 20th century?to a new generation of readers. Through her candid voice and fresh prose, Earhart recalls the events that led to her passion for flight.

Her fascination quickly escalated; she took her first flying lesson in 1920 and by 1928, just one year after Charles Lindbergh made his famous transatlantic flight, Earhart boarded the Friendship with Will Stultz to become the first woman to accomplish the feat. Their achievement catapulted Earhart to international celebrity. Using...

A Bat Man in the Tropics: Chasing El Duende (Organisms and Environments, 7)

Book DescriptionThe euphoria of discovery is the only motivation many scientists need for studying nature and its secrets. Yet euphoria is rarely expressed in scientific publications.

Theodore Fleming's work to document the lives and ecological importance of plant-visiting bats has taken him to the tropical forests of Panama, Costa Rica, and Australia, and to the lush Sonoran Desert of northwest Mexico and Arizona. This book tells the story of his fascinating career and recounts his many adventures in the field. Fleming weaves autobiographical reflections together with information on the natural history and ecology of bats and describes many other animals and plants he has encountered. His book details the stresses and rewards of life in scientific field camps, gives portraits of prominent biologists such as Dan...

A Diplomatic Doctor

Book DescriptionAs the Air France 737 landed on the worn runway of the Tan Sun Nhut airport in a western suburb of Saigon and approached the rundown terminal building, I knew we were not going to be welcomed with open arms. As we passed through the arrival room, the customs officers were not disagreeable. I did wonder how they could sit in the heat and humidity in the large dingy room with one antique ceiling fan whining above them, pushing down the hot air. There were no smiles but no delays either. ?A plucky, gutsy memoir of a doctor?s life well-lived, helping refugees set adrift by war and disaster. Holbrook?s humility, gentle humour and unflagging kindness, along with his insatiable delight in people and their worlds, carries him through the toughest times and illuminates every page of this amazing story.? ?Sarah Sheard, author of The Hypnotist ?Whether he is describing the misery of an Indonesian refugee camp or a peculiar...

Forrest Gander

A Faithful Existence : Selected Essays

Book Description A Faithful Existence is a thrilling, lyrical exploration of what it means to be faithful in the act of translation, in scientific and spiritual inquiry, in philosophies of perception, in friendship, and in poetry. Sensual, erudite,and operatic in scope, these essays pay homage to the landscape of the American South, to snapping turtles and anti-particles, to iconoclastic physicists and writers from various countries and epochs, to visionary poets and to poetic hoaxes. Forrest Gander pops the hood of the standard-issue essay and hotwires it for the 21st century, re-tuning compelling associations and vivid bursts of insight into the quality of immediate experience. He connects with an ethical vision, a bodily consciousness, and a mode of language that might help us to survive the streams of data, the discombobulating media, and the predatory march of "information" that defines our age.
