One of thousands of children who fled strife in southern Sudan, John Bul Dau survived hunger, exhaustion, and violence. His wife, Martha, endured similar hardships. In this memorable book, the two convey the best of African values while relating searing accounts of famine and war. There's warmth as well, in their humorous tales of adapting to American life. For its importance as a primary source, for its inclusion of the rarely told female perspective of Sudan's lost children, for its celebration of human resilience, this is the perfect story to inform and inspire young readers.

        This unforgettable book is the first-person account of a miracle—indeed, a series of miracles. One of the uprooted youngsters known as the Lost Boys of Sudan, John Bul Dau was 12 years old when civil war ravaged his village and shattered its age-old society, a life of herding and agriculture marked by the virtues of Dinka tribal tradition. As tracer bullets split the night and mortar shells exploded around him, John fled into the darkness—the first terrified moments of a journey that would lead him thousands of miles into an exile that was to last many years.

        In a world where werewolves rule and vampires are just the boy or girl next door, kids love anything that will scare the pants off them. But how do you separate fact from fiction? Do haunted houses, spooky ghosts, and UFOs have a place in history, or is it all just a bunch of hooey? Crawling with spine-tingly facts, eerie anecdotes, and fun information, this book is all about everything creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky. It's a perfect book for the bathroom library or to read by flashlight under the covers. Just don't tell kids how much real science and history they're actually learning!

        National Geographic Ultimate Explorer host Lisa Ling examines the consequences of China's two-decades-old ''one-child policy,'' designed to curb the country's exploding population. Due to cultural, social, and economic factors, traditional preference leans toward boys, so girls are often hidden, aborted, or abandoned. As a result, tens of thousands of girls end up in orphanages across China.

        One of the greatest discoveries in Judeo-Christian archaeology, the Gospel of Judas did not head straight to a museum, or even to the library of a rich collector. The gospel's removal from its burial place was just the beginning of a bizarre cloak-and-dagger journey.

        Legends of lost civilizations have captivated people throughout time. During the Age of Discovery, explorers searched the Pacific in vain for a mysterious land they called terra incognita or unknown land. To this day, the elders on Easter Island claim their ancestors came from a continent called Hiva, believed to have sunk after a great disaster. Now, new scientific evidence points to a remote island chain in Polynesia as the center of an ancient, thriving civilization. For over 400 years these islands have been known as the Marquesas Archipelago, but before that the native Polynesians called them simply The Isles of Hiva. Could they be a remnant of the lost continent of Hiva?

        For nearly 45 years, hundreds of hours of news footage and radio reports quietly languished in Dallas—first kept under wraps by the local news stations who owned them, then in the vault of a museum dedicated to preserving the memory of the day John F. Kennedy was killed.

        During excavation for the deepest submerged tunnel in the world, engineers in Istanbul uncovered a hidden past: a preserved ancient harbor. It is the biggest maritime discovery in history, and to date, more than 30 shipwrecks from the Byzantine era have been recovered. With new findings every day—including stone foundations from a settlement dating back 8,000 years—construction of the tunnel has come to a halt, and the delay is costing the engineers millions. Now, National Geographic goes on site to one of the largest archaeological excavations ever undertaken and grants viewers behind-the-scenes access to this heated battle between modernizers and historians.

        Over the centuries, explorers traded tales of a lost civilization amid the dense Amazonian rainforest. Scientists dismissed the legends as exaggerations, believing that the rainforest could not sustain such a huge population—until now. A new generation of explorers armed with 21st-century technology has uncovered remarkable evidence that could reinvent our understanding of the Amazon and the indigenous peoples who lived there. Using CGI and dramatic re-creations, National Geographic re-imagines the banks of the Amazon 500 years ago, teeming with inhabitants living in the Lost Cities of the Amazon.
