A tale of obsession and very big fish from Jeremy Wade, the presenter of ITV's RIVER MONSTERS. Over ten feet long, it weighs in at nearly a quarter of a ton. Covering its back are armoured plates made of bone. Five hundred stiletto-sharp teeth line its long crocodilian jaws. It's a prehistoric beast of staggering proportions; a fearsome creature from the time of the dinosaurs. But the Alligator Gar, an air-breathing survivor from the Cretaceous period is still with us today, patrolling inland rivers, hunting in murky waters shared by human communities. And for Jeremy Wade, described as the 'greatest angling explorer of his generation', the Gar and other outlandish freshwater predators have been an obsession for all his adult life. With names like Arapaima, Snakehead, Goonch, Goliath Tigerfish and Electric Eel, many of them have acquired an almost mythical status. In a quest that has taken him from the Amazon to the Congo, and from North America to the mountains of India, Wade has pursued the truth about these little known, often misunderstood animals. Along the way he's survived a plane crash, malaria and a fish-inflicted blow to the chest that, according to a later scan, caused permanent scarring to his heart. In RIVER MONSTERS, Wade delivers a sometimes jaw-dropping blend of adventure, natural history, legend and detective work. It reads like a hunt for the Loch Ness Monster. But it's all true. These are fisherman's tales like you've never heard before. The stories of the ones that didn't get away ...

River monsters are part of modern folklore. Those who believe that myths are something that exist only in the far distant path are incorrect. Anyone who knows a little bit about modern river monsters knows they are the root of 20th and even 21st century cryptozoology myths. For children, reading about these amazing creatures, both ones we know exist and those that are pure fantasy, opens many doors of imagination. The sense of wonder gained helps the young ones to think more broadly about the world.

The north is a treasure trove of folklore. From magical creatures of the old country to legends of the mysterious and macabre, such lore is a fascinating record of the stories people held on to and the customs, foods, and cures that filled their lives. Collected in the 1930s as part of the Federal Writers’ Program, a Depression-era works project, these are the stories of Norwegian and Swiss immigrants, Native American medicine men and storytellers, and pioneers with memories of the earliest days of settlement in the Old Northwest. In search of stories, legends, songs, and other scraps of traditional knowledge, researchers fanned out across Wisconsin and other states. The resulting handwritten notes, thousands of pages in length, capture history as people remembered it. Blue Men and River Monsters collects the most interesting and noteworthy of these tales, placing them alongside stunning artwork collected by the Federal Art Project in Wisconsin. Peruse these pages and discover a new history of the people and places of the old north.

Ausgezeichnet mit dem Pulitzer-Preis 1953, ein Jahr später ausdrücklich von der Nobelpreis-Jury erwähnt: Hemingways faszinierende Novelle über den kubanischen Fischer Santiago. Allein fährt er in einem kleinen Ruderboot aufs Meer. Vierundachtzig Tage hat er nichts gefangen. Sein junger Helfer wurde auf ein anderes Boot geschickt – der alte Mann sei vom Unglück verfolgt, sagen die Eltern. Doch nachdem Santiago wieder einen ganzen Tag lang umsonst gewartet hat, beißt ein sehr großer Fisch an und zieht ihn und das Boot hinaus aufs offene Meer. Ein ungleicher Kampf beginnt. «Der Klassiker erstrahlt in schlichter Schönheit.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «Ernest Hemingway, der Magier mit den schlichten Hauptsätzen und dem Gespür für alles Sinnliche. Im Grunde zelebriert sein Blick eine Liebe zur Schöpfung.» (Die Zeit) Für Hemingway-Liebhaber: Die berühmte Novelle in neuer Übersetzung und ansprechender Ausstattung.
