Das Medienpaket aus der Reihe "Englisch lernen mit Peter, Justus und Bob" basiert auf dem ursprünglich deutschen "... Tödliches Eis" (ISBN 978-3-440-11568-8). Analog zu "... Soccer Gangsters" (ID 38/09; BA 11/09) folgt einer knappen deutschen Zusammenfassung sowie der Kurzvorstellung der Personen das ca. 70-seitige einsprachig englische Abenteuer mit Vokabelhilfen auf jeder Seite. Vorliegender 3-???-Fall ist insgesamt kürzer als der oben genannte, außerdem sind auch die kleineren Kapitel und einfacheren Sätze dem etwas niedrigeren Sprachniveau (ab 3. Lernjahr) angepasst. Dem spannenden Abenteuer, das mit gleich 2 Fällen für die 3 ??? im hohen Norden Alaskas aufwartet, folgen die alphabetische Liste der Vokabelangaben, angemessen schwierige, kapitelbezogene Übungen sowie einige Wendungen zum Thema "Detektive". Trotz der hilfreichen, in leicht verständlichem Englisch gesprochenen MP3-CD zum Anhören bzw. Mitlesen ist auch dieser Titel der etwas verschulten Reihe recht anspruchsvoll. Er eignet sich sehr gut für den Unterrichtsgebrauch oder für engagierte Schüler mit bereits guten Sprachkenntnissen.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1877. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER VIII. ON THE SHOEES OF THE FEOZEN OCEAN., hen Frank went on deck next morning, he found the vessel standing southward with all her sails furled before a strong gale of wind, which kept the floating ice always about them, though they'could see that the sea before them was much more free from ice than it was to windward. On this course they continued ah day, and as the last gleam of the brief sunshine faded from the sky, Frank saw the captain pointing southward, and, quickly gazing in that direction, perceived a long undulating line of white that was distinctly defined for a few minutes between the sea and the sky, and then was lost in the fast-gathering gloom of night. With the rising sun they beheld before them a long ridge of low hills covered with snow, their whitened summits sharply denned against the slate-coloured sky, blushing into rose where they caught the upward beams of the glowing luminary of day, and shaded into grey on their western slopes. The bluish grey of the waves was varied with the white masses of floating ice between the ship and the land; and in every other direction, far as the eye could reach, was a vast field of ice, piled up by the wind and the waves at all angles to the horizon. Slowly the barque was brought nearer to the land, and at noon was moored with grapnels on the edge of a thick sheet of ice that had closed up a creek. The hills had receded from view as the frost-bound ship was steered towards them, and were now seen to be a considerable distance from the coast, rising gradually from a dreary waste of snow, dotted here and there with a stunted and leafless pine. There were no signs of human habitation, but a white fox was seen near the shore, regarding the ship with mingled curiosity and surprise, and flocks of aq..

"At once profound, spiritual, and witty, Master of the Three Ways is a remarkable work about human nature, the essence of life, and how to live simply and with awareness. In three hundred and fifty-seven verses, the author, Hung Ying-ming a seventeenth-century Chinese sage explores good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, and heaven and hell. He draws from the wisdom of the Three Creeds Taoism, Confucianism, and Zen Buddhism to impress upon us that by combining simple elegance with the ordinary, we can make our lives artistic and poetic. This sense, along with a particular understanding of Zen that makes art from the simple in everyday life, has permeated Chinese and Japanese culture to this day. The work is divided into two books. The first generally deals with the art of living in society and the second is concerned with man's solitude and contemplations of nature. These themes repeatedly spill over into each other, creating multiple levels of meaning."

This e-book features the complete text found in the print edition of Dangerous Work, without the illustrations or the facsimile reproductions of Conan Doyle's notebook pages. In 1880 a young medical student named Arthur Conan Doyle embarked upon the “first real outstanding adventure” of his life, taking a berth as ship’s surgeon on an Arctic whaler, the Hope. The voyage took him to unknown regions, showered him with dramatic and unexpected experiences, and plunged him into dangerous work on the ice floes of the Arctic seas. He tested himself, overcame the hardships, and, as he wrote later, “came of age at 80 degrees north latitude.” Conan Doyle’s time in the Arctic provided powerful fuel for his growing ambitions as a writer. With a ghost story set in the Arctic wastes that he wrote shortly after his return, he established himself as a promising young writer. A subsequent magazine article laying out possible routes to the North Pole won him the respect of Arctic explorers. And he would call upon his shipboard experiences many times in the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, who was introduced in 1887’s A Study in Scarlet. Out of sight for more than a century was a diary that Conan Doyle kept while aboard the whaler. Dangerous Work: Diary of an Arctic Adventure makes this account available for the first time. With humor and grace, Conan Doyle provides a vivid account of a long-vanished way of life at sea. His careful detailing of the experience of arctic whaling is equal parts fascinating and alarming, revealing the dark workings of the later days of the British whaling industry. In addition to the transcript of the diary, the e-book contains two nonfiction pieces by Doyle about his experiences; and two of his tales inspired by the journey. To the end of his life, Conan Doyle would look back on this experience with awe: “You stand on the very brink of the unknown,” he declared, “and every duck that you shoot bears pebbles in its gizzard which come from a land which the maps know not. It was a strange and fascinating chapter of my life.” Only now can the legion of Conan Doyle fans read and enjoy that chapter.

An enthralling novel of two intertwining stories based on real events in 19th century Ireland and the Canadian Arctic. Two ships Arctic-bound, HMS Erebus and Terror, leave London in 1845, captained by the aging Sir John Franklin. How long they’ll be gone depends on the ice. Meanwhile, second-in-command, Francis Crozier, worries about their inexperienced crew. In Derry, little Weesy Coppin dies of a fever but, as far as her sister Ann and brother William are concerned, her spirit returns to haunt them. While an anxious world waits for news of the Artic explorers, the Coppin family try to understand what is going in their home. But, then, one night, all is revealed when the truth literally steps out of the shadows.

Ordinary Women is the exciting chronicle of the first all- women ski expedition from the Russian side of the planet to the North Pole. Team selection, physical training, and the logistics of managing food, clothing, and shelter in an environment that "...wants you dead," are crisply presented in chilling detail, quite literally. Full of surprises from its inception to its execution nearly eight years later, this is an amazing story of women working together, taking on harsh critics, challenging each other, and reaching a common goal. The group, which expanded and contracted through the stresses that all major expeditions face, was made up of determined but fairly ordinary women, who dedicated their arduous trek to young women. From the pitfalls of fundraising to the perils of breaking ice, this intrepid band of adventurers not only achieved their common goal, but transformed themselves in the process. Sue Carter, the expedition's organizer, describes the problems with group leadership, both in preparation for the expedition and while on the ice. Nevertheless, the women reached the top of the world, and a waiting NASA crew; for an international webcast to schoolchildren who had followed their expedition; and for a segment on Good Morning America.

I had often dreamed of icebergs and Polar bears, whales and rorquals, of walruses and seals, of Esquimaux, and Laplanders and kayaks, of the Aurora Borealis and the midnight sun, and numerous other wonders of the arctic regions, and here was I on board the stout ship the Hardy Norseman, of and from Dundee, Captain Hudson, Master, actually on my way to behold them, to engage in the adventures, and perchance to endure the perils and hardships which voyagers in those northern seas must be prepared to encounter. Born in the Highlands, and brought up by my uncle, the laird of Glenlochy, a keen sportsman, I had been accustomed to roam over my native hills, rifle in hand, often without shoes, the use of which I looked upon as effeminate. I feared neither the biting cold, nor the perils I expected to meet with. I had a motive also for undertaking the trip. My brother Andrew had become surgeon of the Hardy Norseman and we were both anxious to obtain tidings of our second brother David, who had gone in the same capacity on board the Barentz, which had sailed the previous year on a whaling and sealing voyage to Spitzbergen and Nova Zembla, and had not since been heard of. I was younger than either, and had not yet chosen my future profession; though, having always had a fancy for the sea, I was glad of an opportunity of judging how near the reality approached my imaginings, besides the chief motive which had induced me to apply to our old friend Captain Hudson for leave to accompany Andrew.
