The History of Scandinavia

by S. A. Dunham

Scandinavia prior to the tenth century is the region of romance, – of the wildest legends. These are admissible into the severe domain of history in so far only as they illustrate national opinions and manners, – the noblest part of the study. For this reason, chiefly, more have been retained in the present volume than are to be found in any preceding work on the subject. Indeed, were they rejected, nine tenths of northern history must be rejected with them.

THE ROCK OF THE MISSING: Aeinape International Book Awards Finalist (2nd Best Novel)

by Antonio Flórez Lage

A BEST-SELLING NOVEL IN SPANISH.

RECEIVED WITH CRITICAL ACCLAIM.

“Full of humour, sensitivity, action and mystery.”

Discover a not-so-touristic Mexico and the bleakest Spain.

SYNOPSIS

In the outskirts of a tiny Galician fishing village there is a huge rock that hides a mysterious submarine cave. What happens to those who dare to go diving there? Several events from their childhood drag the protagonist and his peculiar friend back to that eerie place.
They meet again, years later, and set off on a seedy trip around Mexico, full of action and dangers. The unexpected outcome of that journey changes the life of the protagonist forever.

This novel is one of a kind: it offers the readers a special something; a unique quality that means the story does not leave us when we close the book. Some readers are already applying its lessons to their own livesâ?¦

THE REVIEWERS SAY

“â??If I jump, I’ll kill myself; if I don’t jump, they’ll kill me.’ With these words, in an eerie landscape full of rocks and black waves that reminded me of Hitchcock, begins the novel The Rock of the Missing. This book keeps moving, from the initial Hitchcockian scene, later becoming a chilling road movie that takes us across a scorched Mexico, full of gunshots, drug dealers and dead bodies, and ending in a permanent return to Galicia, where the whole thing beginsâ?¦ I recommend you read this novel if you wish to enjoy the art Antonio Flórez uses to carve his sentences if you want to join in an adventure full of humour, sensitivity, action and mystery.”
Lavadora de textos, Ramón Alemán.

Jon: Flesh and Blood Jesus in my Life

by George Stietz

In 1996, the author aged 23, graduated college and entered the Peace Corps on a tour of duty to be served in Haiti–a now long defunct Peace Corps program. There he met Jon–a young man a year and a half his junior, but significantly wiser–who would serve as his roommate and friend during staging and training. This is the story of the author’s time with Jon, as well as this period of time with the author’s father, who through thick and thin, would always stick by his wayward, ne’er-do-well son, and believe in him and his endeavors. It is also the story of the author’s spiritual connection to Haiti: A beautiful country with divine people and a charisma and mysticism all its own.

The #1 Travel Guide for Families Visiting Northern Italy! “Venice, Verona, Lake Garda & the Dolomites with Kids 2018” is not your typical run-of-the-mill guidebook. Rather, it is an indispensable and hugely useful resource for any family traveling to beautiful Italy.
Here you will find:
Detailed family-friendly itineraries, covering the best sights and attractions * The top 10 activities for families in all the important cities * Lists of the best events and attractions, such as: water parks, adventure parks, family-friendly beaches, horseback rides, jousting matches and medieval carnivals * Unique detective missions and kids’ corners, filled with interesting facts and stories * Fascinating details about Italian art, culture, and history * Insider tips and top advice, written by a local, that will save you time and money on your Italian vacation * Recommendations for excellent family hotels, B&Bs and restaurants * The best kid-friendly museums and sights.

*** Here’s what a few of our readers had to say about our previous guide, “Florence & Tuscany with Kids”:
“Excellent book, tried and tested with 3 kids aged 10-11. We took a regular guide book too but always found ourselves checking this one because it had relevant info for famiilies, like: which place sells the best gelato? Good local panini bars, cafes, child friendly restaurants?…”
DC

“Well organized and very useful. If you are travelling to Florence or Tuscany with your kids, this guide is a must”.
Mat D.

“This book is a must-have if you are taking your kids to the Tuscany region! It was invaluable and made our trip a great experience. We traveled with a 3 & 5 year old and the tips and activities inside were great. The restaurant recommendations proved to be helpful and delicious.”
Allison Neumann

“Better than your normal travel guide. I love the additional information provided…. And now I have a much better understanding of Renaissance art!”
W.Mason

“Very good guide for Florence and the surrounding areas if you have kids. The major attractions had some kid based projects, these were fun to complete. Also, the facts based for kids were useful in keeping our child focused. We really liked the area/attraction gelato based information.”
C. Frears

“This travel guide is detailed, thorough and full of useful information. As other reviewers have pointed out, its forte isn’t an abundance of colorful photos and maps (on the contrary, it is printed in b/w), but the information it provides.
The detailed itineraries (especially the Maremma and the Florence itineraries, which we followed) were very interesting and enjoyable. The reviews of Florence’s best family friendly attractions and the recommendations for parks and medieval festivities were great. In fact, we found several suggestions and activity ideas here that we did not see in any other guide we consulted. All in all, this is a highly recommended resource for families traveling to Tuscany”

A History and Guide to Biblical Sites in Cyprus

by Allan Tilley

The “Island of Cyprus” had been known since antiquity for its beauty and its strategic significance, but many do not know that Cyprus is also known throughout Biblical Scripture. This guide will take you on a journey to the Biblical archaeological sites and let you relive the cultures and characters as seen through “Cypriot” eyes. You will see how cultures collided to collective define the “Island Of Cyprus” that we know today. Looking back to the past we will not only understand Cyprus, but we will also get a clearer understanding of the Bible and its roots. Cyprus at times is overshadowed by the Middle East and the vast array of archaeological sites related to the Bible, but just under the surface in Cyprus both the Old and New Testament stories come to life. In this guide we have decided to explore all the personalities and characters related to the Bible directly. There are many other ancient remains here on the island, but we have narrowed our journey and discussion to only include the history as seen through Scripture. We will explore the history of Cyprus starting with the Bronze-Age sites as referenced in the Old Testament and then move up to the Roman era and highlight the New Testament Biblical sites and the churches that grew out of that history. So come and explore the Cyprus that you probably do not know historically and then endeavor to understand the beauty of its beaches and vivid landscapes, its history, and its people, both past and present, and then you will see that the Bible is alive and living still in Cyprus.
