Willow Whisp And The Lee Project from the Author: Elizabeth Trombley. Evil, in the form of a delusional doctor, lurks behind a smile while he covertly plans to steal the renowned Dr. Lees medical miracle to extend life. Using an innocent woman, Martha, for experimental purposes, a sinister plot unfolds as a foreign dictator vies for the formula. Martha, who has no memory or the ability to choose her fate, is unable to protect herself from the insidious cruelty waged against her. With newfound strength and determination, Martha finally escapes from her antagonist only to find she cannot escape the death sentence he placed inside her. Willow comes to her aid too late but rallies against her nemeses. Willow Whisp, a female government agent, cannot save Martha from a tragic end but quickly retaliates against her enemies, bringing the devil to his knees with the help of a rash, judgmental sidekick named Jason, who dislikes functioning beside a shrewd female. The continual bickering between the agents puts the mission in jeopardy more than once, yet this bickering cements the relationship between the two agents, a bond that cannot be broken. Although obscured in the story, this is a tale of love and trust, success and failure; the journey two people must take to justify their chosen profession.

In Quest Of Gold from the Author: Carol Bender. THIS STORY IS retold from the diary of Jacob P. Prickett. When he was editor of the newspaper back in the late 1800s he wrote the story in a series of serials and then compiled them together and pasted them into a book. The book was handed down in the family from generation to generation and tells a wonderful story about his trip, as a young boy of 17, when he joined on with a wagon train going west to the Gold Rush. More than gold he was seeking excitement and adventure and he certainly found plenty of both. His other goal was to find his older brother who was already in California.

After an astonishing career as explorer and missionary, Dr David Livingstone disappeared back into his beloved Africa for one last time in search of the source of the Nile. He believed that the river sprang from four mysterious fountains which had been known to the ancient Greeks. Livingstone faced his task with unparalleled bravery but he was frail and eventually he died on the shores of a swampy lake. Over a century later, Colum Wilson and Aisling Irwin, husband and wife, retraced his last journey on foot, canoe and bicycle. They found vivid evidence of his continuing legacy to East Africa - and haunting echoes of his spirit.

Alexander P De Seversky And The Quest For Air Power from the Author: James K. Libbey. Today, air power is a vital component of the U.S. armed forces. James Libbey, in Alexander P. de Seversky and the Quest for Air Power, highlights the contributions of an aviation pioneer who made much of it possible. Graduating from the Imperial Russian Naval Academy at the start of World War I, de Seversky lost a leg in his first combat mission. He still shot down thirteen German planes and became the empire's most decorated combat naval pilot. While serving as a naval attache in the United States in 1918, de Seversky elected to escape the Bolshevik Revolution and offered his services as a pilot and consulting engineer to the U.S. War Department. He proved inventive both in the technology of advanced military aircraft and in the strategy of exercising air power. He worked for famed aviation advocate Gen. William "Billy" Mitchell, who encouraged the naturalized citizen to patent his inventions, such as an in-flight refueling system and a gyroscopically synchronized bombsight. His creative spirit then spurred him to design and manufacture advanced military aircraft. When World War II broke out in Europe, de Seversky became America's best-known philosopher, prophet, and advocate for air power, even serving as an adviser to the chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force. The highlight of his life occurred in 1970 when the Aviation Hall of Fame enshrined de Seversky for "his achievements as a pilot, aeronautical engineer, inventor, industrialist, author, strategist, consultant, and scientific advances in aircraft design and aerospace technology." This book will appeal to readers with a special interest in military history and to anyone who wants to learn more about American air power's most important figures.

From Sunlight To Insight from the Author: Geerdt Magiels. "Who discovered photosynthesis? Not many people know. Jan IngenHousz' name has been forgotten, his life and works have disappeared in the mists of time. Still, the tale of his scientific endeavour shows science in action. Not only does it open up an undisclosed chapter of the history of science, it is an ideal (as under researched) episode in the history of science that can help to shine some light on the ingredients and processes that shape the development of science. This paves the way for a fresh multidimensional approach in the philosophy of science: towards an "ecology of science"."--P. [4] of cover.
