♦ Description : “No borders let you pass serenely, they all hurt.” To flee their misery and join the “Eldorado”, emigrants risk their lives on makeshift boats … before being ruthlessly repulsed by the coastguards when they are not victims of unscrupulous smugglers. Commander Piracci is one of those who scour the seas in search of illegal immigrants, sometimes saving them from drowning. But is death worse than the broken dream? By collecting a young survivor, Salvatore lets compassion and humanity prevail over his certainties … Journey of initiation, sacrifice, revenge, redemption: the arid lyricist novelist handles the themes of ancient tragedy with an ever-epic breath.

Description : When gold was discovered in the far northern regions of Alaska and the Yukon in the late nineteenth century, thousands of individuals headed north to strike it rich. This massive movement required a vast network of supplies and services and brought even more people north to manage and fulfill those needs. In this volume, archaeologists, historians, and ethnologists discuss their interlinking studies of the towns, trails, and mining districts that figured in the northern gold rushes, including the first sustained account of the archaeology of twentieth-century gold mining sites in Alaska or the Yukon. The authors explore various parts of this extensive settlement and supply system: coastal towns that funneled goods inland from ships; the famous Chilkoot Trail, over which tens of thousands of gold-seekers trod; a host of retail-oriented sites that supported prospectors and transferred goods through the system; and actual camps on the creeks where gold was extracted from the ground. Discussing individual cases in terms of settlement patterns and archaeological assemblages, the essays shed light on issues of interest to students of gender, transience, and site abandonment behavior. Further commentary places the archaeology of the Far North within the larger context of early twentieth-century industrialized European American society.

Description : The City of Kings is the second part of the three-book Eldorado series. In this novel the beautiful Monica has been kidnapped by the Peruvian terrorist group, The Shining Path. Peter Martin, a young American geology student is dedicated to finding his true love and her mother. As the sinister plot of Monica's evil uncle is uncovered, Peter finds himself immersed in the middle of a battle between good and evil. It is a race against time to find Monica before the Shining Path does. The winner will get the coveted Inca treasure that Pizarro and the conquistadors found in their conquest of Peru. In the process Peter really discovers himself and his true feelings for Monica. The treasure is safely hidden in the ancient tunnels underneath the Incan capital city of Cusco, Peru, but will it stay safe? Peter is frustrated by the red tape and government bureaucracy that he has to wade through to get the help that is required. Time is of the essence and Peter knows that the terrorists will not hesitate to kill Monica if they receive the information they need from the Sacred Quipu to find the treasure cache. The parallel story of the conquest of the Incas is intertwined in the novel because of its historical importance to the location and quantity of the treasure. Francisco Pizarro the governor and conqueror of Peru is murdered in his own presidential palace in Lima. A struggle for control of the empire takes place between the remaining Pizarro brothers and the 'Men of Chile'. These terrible civil wars between the Spanish conquistadors become not only a fight for power and the right to govern, but also agreed for Inca gold. Peter becomes entangled in a much larger plot that threatens more than just his life. He realizes that the terrorists aren't really after a rich American kid, but this very special Peruvian beauty. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and it would prove to change the direction of his whole life. This fictional history is about their adventure together and if their love will overcome the differences between their modern day cultures that become entwined with the past and the search for Eldorado and Inca Gold.

Description : This is the story of my childhood, approximately from 1928 to 1943, which is also the time frame of the Great Depression. My parents came to America with my sister and me from Germany to find a better life. At first they did. Everything was wonderful and they had great success, but this was promptly replaced by failure, due to the unavailability of employment after the Crash of 1929. A whole new revision of our lives was necessary. My father purchased a very small farm on the eastern shore of Maryland, as a life-saving back-up. We could grow our own food and always have something to eat! This is the story of the life on this farm as seen through the eyes of a child. Many things were new and strange to my parents and me. Especially to me, because to a six-year old, everything is new and strange! This is the story of those six years, and the subsequent years when we had returned to New York and had come back to city living. Some of these experiences were sad and others were kind of funny. I have tried to stress the humorous aspects. I hope I have succeeded. "Eldorado" written by Margaret Wentzel Lipthay with ISBN_13 146857308X and ISBN_10 9781468573084 with total page sheets [-140-].

Description : A moving fable about luck, persistence, and hope, grounded in the often tragic reality of modern-day immigration, by the winner of the 2004 Prix Goncort. Captain Salvatore Piracci has sailed along the Italian coast for the last twenty years, intercepting boats with clandestine African immigrants who have risked everything in the hope of reaching the new Eldorado. But when Piracci is confronted by a woman haunted by the death of her son, killed during an illegal crossing, he is forced to question the validity of his border-patrolling mission. Meanwhile, two brothers prepare to leave Sudan and make the dangerous passage to Europe. Separated mid-voyage, Suleiman, the youngest, vows to make it to the promised land and find the means to reunite with his ailing elder brother. At a time when debates over immigration and national identity dominate headlines in the United States and Europe, best-selling author Laurent Gaudé offers a unique portrait of the individuals who compromise their dreams and endanger their lives in search of a better existence.
