Blue latitudes : boldly going where Captain Cook has gone before by Tony Horwitz( Book )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in German and held by 26 libraries worldwide
This book retraces the voyages of Captain James Cook, the Yorkshire farm boy who drew the map of the modern world. Captain James Cook's three epic journeys in the eighteenth century were the last great voyages of discovery. His ships sailed 150,000 miles, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from Tasmania to Oregon, from Easter Island to Siberia. When Cook set off for the Pacific in 1768, a third of the globe remained blank. By the time of his violent death in Hawaii in 1779, the map of the world was substantially complete. Tony Horwitz vividly recounts Cook's voyages and the exotic scenes the captain encountered: tropical orgies, taboo rituals, cannibal feasts, human sacrifice. He also relives Cook's adventures by traveling in the captain's wake to such places as Tahiti, Savage Island, and the Great Barrier Reef along the way, he discovers Cook's embattled legacy in the present day. Signing on as a working crewman aboard a replica of Cook's vessel, Horwitz experiences the thrill and terror of sailing a tall ship. He also explores Cook the man: an impoverished farm boy who broke through the barriers of his class and time to become the greatest navigator in British history

Im Jahr 1863 startete im englischen Yorkshire eine ungewöhnliche Reisegruppe aus vier jungen Männern und vier jungen Frauen zu einer Tour durch die Schweizer Alpen. Es war die erste organisierte Gruppenreise auf einer Route, die später im Angebot von Thomas Cook einen festen Platz erhalten sollte. Der Weg führte von London über Paris und Genf nach Chamonix, von da übers Wallis ins Berner Oberland nach Luzern und dann wieder zurück. Mit heutigen Pauschalreisen hatte die Unternehmung wenig zu tun. Die Damen trugen viktorianische Gewänder, man bewegte sich zu Fuß, mit der Kutsche, auf dem Dampfsc

The king of swords : a novel by Nick Stone( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Miami, 1981. When Detective Max Mingus and his partner Joe are called to the scene of a death at Miami's Primate Park, it looks like another routine -- if slightly bizarre -- investigation. Until two things turn up: the victim's family, slaughtered; and a partly digested tarot card in the dead man's stomach -- The King of Swords. An increasingly bloody trail leads Max and Joe first to a sinister fortune-teller and her scheming pimp son, then to the infamous Solomon Boukman. Few have ever met the most feared criminal in Miami, but rumours abound of a forked tongue, voodoo ceremonies and friends in very high places. Against a backdrop of black magic and police corruption, Max and Joe must distinguish the good guys from the bad -- and track down some answers. What is the significance of the "King of Swords"? What makes those who have swallowed the card go on a killing spree just before they die? And can Max find out the truth about Solomon Boukman, before death's shadow reaches his own front door?
