The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson tells a mysterious and thrilling tale through the eyes of the honest and good-natured lawyer, Mr. Utterson. In the will entrusted to Mr. Utterson, Dr. Jekyll states that when he dies, all of his money and possessions shall be left to Mr. Hyde. At first Mr. Utterson and his close friend, Mr. Enfield, suspect that the brutish and child-trampling Mr. Hyde is somehow blackmailing the well-known and well liked Dr. Jekyll. Time passes without incident until unexpectedly, a maid witnesses the gruesome death of an older man at the hands of Mr. Hyde in the middle of the street. Mr. Hyde disappears despite the best efforts of the police to hunt him down. Robert Louis Stevenson takes the listener through an interesting series of events in which the mysterious link between Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is not revealed until the very end of the audiobook, when Mr. Utterson reads the documents left behind by Dr. Jekyll and Dr. Jekyll's former friend, Dr. Lanyon. Dark and foreboding, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is a fun roller-coaster ride with a strange ending that wonderfully ties the entire story together. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elaine Wise. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/046894/bk_acx0_046894_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Connie Bischoff, Photographer: I was born and raised in the small town of Rocanville Saskatchewan. It was there I attended school Kindergarten to Grade 12. Uncle Romeo Lemieux was the French teacher at the school and I one of his students. Soon after graduation I moved to Saskatoon and then Edmonton, Alberta. It was here I met my very loving and handsome husband Murray Bischoff. We married and were blessed with two beautiful precious daughters Shaelyn and Nevada. We were on top of the world raising our girls and enjoying life as it unfolded beneath our feet. I was very fortunate to be able to stay at home for 9 years with the girls. I was ecstatic and elated when the girls were old enough to allow me to spread my wings once again into the working world! I landed a part time job and was soon recruited from that to one I thought I could only dream about-- finishing carpentry! I come from a long line of carpenters and wood workers and it is in my blood! As a little girl and growing up I always admired these skills in both my grandfathers Omer Lemieux and Louis Feist, my father Ken Lemieux, and many of my uncles! I poured my heart and soul into this job, took great pride and thoroughly knew I could do this for the rest of my life or so I thought. It was then my life, indeed, our family's life would face a dramatic turn of events! A work related injury took us all on a wild roller coaster and many horrific turn of events! I suffered nerve damage after a torn ulnar nerve in my left elbow. It soon developed into a rare neurological chronic pain disease, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome otherwise known as C.R.P.S or R.S.D! Our lives were all put to a test through the next ten years and almost ended tragically with the loss of my life 6 years ago! It was here a miracle occurred! God, my grandpa Omer in Heaven and Guardian Angel Uncle Romeo through prayer held my hand and led me back to Earth! It is here I want to say an added thank you to my very devoted team of medical professionals, family, friends and God's intervention of a miracle, as well as Friesen Press for the four years of patience while I sorted through my medical challenges and understanding of this horrific most painful and extremely challenging disease! In the first two years Uncle Romeo and I accidentally stumbled upon a dream-- the dream which you are holding in your hands now! Our dream was abruptly put on hold 8 years ago while the racetrack of survival almost ended in disaster! In January 2014 I was finally able to muster enough strength mentally and physically to complete 'the project' as we had called it from the beginning now titled 'Right sideUpside Down'. I hope you all enjoy 'the project' of two Artists that converged and combined 'his' writing interpretations and 'her' artistic photographer's interpretation between the covers of 'Right sideUpside Down'! I walk viewers to the edge of sorrow then dance one's mind to simple joy, love and faith. I transport the viewer to sit on the 'fence' of society, religion and everyday life! Dare one speak their opinions and inner truths of the Artist's interpretations!~~~PAUSE~~~I wait, I watch and then wait some more!~~~DETOUR AHEAD~~~An unannounced 'JOURNEY' to shake hands with the 'BRIGHT LIGHT'~~~RETURNING~~~To once again carry one's imagination within to daring and misunderstood and mysterious worlds!

Boxed-H L Mencken Prejudice 2v
84,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Few writers roiled the American cultural scene like Henry Louis Mencken. Pathbreaking journalist, trenchant social observer, and unbridled humorist, Mencken was the most provocative and influential cultural critic of the last century. To read him today is to be plunged into an era whose culture wars were easily as ferocious as our own, in the company of a writer of boundless curiosity and vivacious frankness. In the six volumes of Prejudices published between 1919 and 1927, Mencken attacked what he felt to be American provincialism and hypocrisy, and championed writers and thinkers he saw as harbingers of a new candor and maturity. Laced with savage humor and delighting in verbal play, Mencken's prose remains a one-of-a-kind roller coaster ride over a staggering range of thematic territory: literature and journalism, politics and religion, sex and marriage, food and drink, music and painting, the absurdities of Prohibition and the dismal state of American higher education, and the relative merits of Baltimore and New York. Now, The Library of America restores the full text of Mencken's landmark work to print in a deluxe two- volume boxed set, ensuring that new generations of readers can rediscover his one-of-a-kind genius. LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation's literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America's best and most significant writing. The Library of America series includes more than 300 volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1,000 pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, and ribbon markers, and are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries.

Forest Park Highlands
31,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Forest Park Highlands was once St. Louis's largest and best-known amusement park. In its earliest years, the Highlands boasted a fine theater and one of the largest public swimming pools in the United States. After the 1904 world's fair closed, several attractions found a new home at the Highlands; the large pagoda--a re-creation of the temple of Nekko, Japan--served as the park's bandstand for several years. Roller coasters are the lifeline of every good amusement park, and the Highlands always had two. The end came for the Highlands in a spectacular fire that decimated almost the entire park on July 19, 1963. Only the Comet roller coaster, the Ferris wheel, the Dodgems, the carousel, and the Aero Jets survived. Forest Park Highlands covers other historic amusement parks in St. Louis as well, starting with the earliest, West End Heights, and ending with Holiday Hill, the last remaining park.

Why do golf balls have dimples? How does an iPod turn binary digits into Bon Jovi? How do microwave ovens cook? How does a pitcher make a curveball curve and a knuckleball jitter? Why don't you fall off an upside-down roller coaster? If one didn't know better, one might think the world was filled with magic--from the household appliances that make our lives easier to the devices that fill our world with sounds and images. Even a simple light bulb can seem mysterious when you're clueless about the science behind it. Now in How Everything Works, Louis Bloomfield takes you inside the amazing gizmos and gadgets that are part of the fabric of our everyday life, explaining the physics that makes them work. Examining everything from roller coasters to radio, knuckleballs to nuclear weapons, How Everything Works reveals the answers to such questions as why the sky is blue, why metal is a problem in microwave ovens, how MRIs see inside you, and why some clothes require dry cleaning. You don't need a science or engineering background to understand How Everything Works. All you need is an active curiosity about the extraordinary world all around you. Remarkably clear and always fascinating, How Everything Works is nothing short of a user's manual for our everyday world.
