Zwei Menschen, die sich finden. Zwei Welten, die aufeinanderprallen Nordamerika, 1660 – auf einer kleinen Insel, die heute Martha‘s Vineyard heißt: die 12-jährige Bethia wächst in einer puritanischen Siedlung auf. Ihr Vater ist Prediger, ein strenger Mann, dessen Mission es ist, seinen Glauben auf das Eiland vor Cape Cod zu bringen, das sich die englischen Siedler mit den Wampanoag-Indianern teilen. Doch Bethia fühlt sich fast magisch angezogen von diesen Fremden, die sie oft heimlich auf ihren Streifzügen durch die wilde Natur der Insel beobachtet. Eines Tages trifft sie auf Caleb, den Sohn eines Häuptlings. Auch er ist fasziniert von dem Mädchen mit den blauen Augen und dem wachen Verstand. Die beiden knüpfen ein zartes Band. Doch als sie heranwachsen, kommt der Moment, an dem sie gezwungen werden, für ihre Freundschaft und für ihren Platz im Leben zu kämpfen ...

Extensively re-written, it contains many new statistical tables, figures, and references. It is essential reading for undergraduates in geography and environmental science, and for those who want a thorough, wide-ranging and balanced overview of the impacts of humans upon natural processes and systems from the Stone Age to the Anthropocene and who wish to understand the major environmental issues that concern the human race at the present time.

Offering a panoramic view of the history and culture of food and drink in America with fascinating entries on everything from the smell of asparagus to the history of White Castle, and the origin of Bloody Marys to jambalaya, the Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink provides a concise, authoritative, and exuberant look at this modern American obsession. Ideal for the food scholar and food enthusiast alike, it is equally appetizing for anyone fascinated by Americana, capturing our culture and history through what we love most--food! Building on the highly praised and deliciously browseable two-volume compendium the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America, this new work serves up everything you could ever want to know about American consumables and their impact on popular culture and the culinary world. Within its pages for example, we learn that Lifesavers candy owes its success to the canny marketing idea of placing the original flavor, mint, next to cash registers at bars. Patrons who bought them to mask the smell of alcohol on their breath before heading home soon found they were just as tasty sober and the company began producing other flavors. Edited by Andrew Smith, a writer and lecturer on culinary history, the Companion serves up more than just trivia however, including hundreds of entries on fast food, celebrity chefs, fish, sandwiches, regional and ethnic cuisine, food science, and historical food traditions. It also dispels a few commonly held myths. Veganism, isn't simply the practice of a few "hippies," but is in fact wide-spread among elite athletic circles. Many of the top competitors in the Ironman and Ultramarathon events go even further, avoiding all animal products by following a strictly vegan diet. Anyone hungering to know what our nation has been cooking and eating for the last three centuries should own the Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink.

An einem nebligen Abend startet ein Privatjet zu einem Flug nach New York. Wenige Minuten später stürzt er in den Atlantik. Nur der Maler Scott Burroughs und der vierjährige JJ überleben inmitten der brennenden Trümmer. Und Scott gelingt das Unmögliche: Er schafft es, den Jungen an das weit entfernte Ufer zu retten. Während die Suchtrupps fieberhaft nach den Leichen und der Blackbox fahnden, greifen immer abstrusere Verschwörungstheorien um sich. Scott versucht verzweifelt, sich den Medien zu entziehen – und gerät dabei in eine Welt der Intrigen und Manipulationen, in der niemand vor dem brutalen Fall ins Nichts geschützt ist.
