Tragic History of the Sea - Hardcover
Tragic History of the Sea - Hardcover
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Books/Culture, History and Religion/History

Disaster at sea is an ever-present peril, inspiring ancient legends, great works of fiction, and countless yarns of deadly typhoons, vessels consumed by fire, and desperate castaways alone on an empty ocean. Before Homer composed The Odyssey, sailors were already telling their terrifying stories, and Anthony Brandt has culled only the very best for this essential and engrossing chronicle of shipwrecks through the ages.

Life In Color
Life In Color
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Books/Culture, History and Religion/Culture and Religion

Life in Color is arranged by color in a rainbow of beauty. Each chapter, devoted to a color, begins with a short, inspiring essay that explores the qualities, meaning, and symbolism of that color, written in the same warm and lovely voice that guided the reader through Visions of Earth. Color chapters include photographs that are predominantly blue, orange, green, yellow, purple, and red. Smaller sections present images in silver, brown, black, gold, white, and "unseen color"—not seen with the naked eye, such as laser, the universe, and microscopic images. Throughout, interesting quotes and surprising short insights in the captions give the reader an entirely new look at the color in the world around us.
