To the Best of Our Knowledge: Red Tooth, Red Cl...
9,95 € *

In this hour, John Vaillant tells Steve Paulson about his book, The Tiger. It's about a rare Amur tiger who starts killing people in a remote corner of Siberia where there is a huge trade in tiger poaching because of demand in nearby China. Ironically, a unit dedicated to tiger conservation is charged with hunting the rogue. Then, Susan Casey, author of The Wave, tells Jim Fleming about the recent research into the phenomenon of mammoth ocean waves. Casey moved to Hawaii to hang out with giant wave surfers including Laird Hamilton. Next, Gordon Grice is the author of Deadly Kingdom. He talks with Anne Strainchamps about the wilder side of nature and why we overlook the ferocity of wild animals at our peril. And finally, David Abram is an ecologist, anthropologist and philosopher, and author of Becoming Animal. He visited the studios of Wisconsin Public Radio to tell us about the day he rented a kayak and set out to explore the waterways in Southern Alaska. The events of that day changed him forever. [Broadcast Date: November 4, 2011] 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/tbon/111104/rt_tbon_111104_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Merlin Effect
13,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Kate Gordon travels to a remote lagoon in Baja California, hoping to help her father discover a sunken Spanish galleon that disappeared centuries ago. In time, she learns that the ship may have carried something far more valuable than all the gold and silver aboard-a mysterious drinking horn out of Arthurian legend, which may have led to the demise of the wizard Merlin. As she explores alone in her sea kayak, Kate encounters several pieces of the puzzle: a terrible whirlpool, a group of ever-singing whales, a seemingly ageless fish, and a prophecy that, under certain conditions, the ancient ship may rise and sail again. She plunges into an undersea world of bizarre creatures and terrifying foes. But to save the life of her father, she must find some way to regain her own free will, and to succeed where even Merlin failed. This remarkable tale, companion to Heartlight and The Ancient One, weaves together mystery and fact, history and myth, science and faith, all in the course of a compelling adventure.
