Birds -- those "upgiven ghosts" who shape our skies -- and their many styles of flying have inspired us for centuries. Tim Dee became enthralled with birds as a young boy, and their allure has informed how he perceives time as well as how he sees the world and his place in it. Compelling and poetic, A Year on the Wing is a month-by-month account of following these magnificent creatures, on land, at sea, and in the air, over the course of one "dew-dipped year." A memoir of the author's life as well as of the birds' migrations, the book draws on memories of forty years of observing birds as Dee explores the ideas and feelings that birds awaken in their flying, breeding, and dying. A Year on the Wing is also a significant chronicle of Dee's rich reading of a gorgeous literary tradition about birds -- from Aristotle to Thomas Hardy, Dante to Pound, Wordsworth to Ted Hughes -- as well as naturalists' writings that train a scientific eye on these elusive creatures. With a poet's marvelous commingling of nature and language, Dee finds meaning and a fascinating beauty in the quiver of a redstart's tail, elegizes the thrilling skydiving stoop of the once-endangered, now resurgent peregrine falcon, and reflects on the nocturnal restlessness of migrant woodcocks that is suggestive of how nature encodes us all. A Year on the Wing brings us as close as possible to birds, as we seek to understand the unique connection between us and them as well as our separation from them and, by extension, our estrangement from all of nature. Watching birds instills a renewed sense of wonder, getting us airborne and expanding our horizons. This vicarious liftoff does us good in a way hard to define but incontestably felt. It also makes us ever aware of our place on the ground. Dee homes in on those moments when the gap narrows between humans and birds, when birds' freedom gives us our own, making our lives more vibrant and alive. The first book from an exciting new literary voice, this beautifully written memoir celebrates birds and the inspiration they provide through their twice-yearly winged migrations.

Von Beethoven bis Obama – 100 Jungs, die die Welt verändert haben! Jungs brauchen Vorbilder – heute mehr denn je. In diesem aufwändig gestalteten Buch finden sie über 100 ganz persönliche Geschichten von Künstlern, Wissenschaftlern, Umweltaktivisten, Fußballern, Politikern und Entdeckern – von großen und kleinen Helden aus der ganzen Welt und aus allen Epochen, die Grenzen überschritten haben und gegen den Strom geschwommen sind. Sie alle hatten den Mut, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen und so ihre Träume zu verwirklichen. Nach dem großen Erfolg von Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls gibt es nun endlich auch eine inspirierende Geschichtensammlung für Jungs. Autor Ben Brooks erzählt von Persönlichkeiten, die Erstaunliches erreicht und die Welt auf ihre Art ein Stück besser gemacht haben – jenseits von stereotypen Männlichkeitsbildern und Rollenklischees. Denn: Man muss sich nicht mit großen Kämpfern identifizieren, die Drachen töten und Prinzessinnen retten, um zum Helden zu werden. Dieses Buch zeigt, dass man auch als Querdenker, als sensibler oder introvertierter Junge Außergewöhnliches zu leisten vermag. Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different ist ein unvergleichliches Buch, randvoll gepackt mit Abenteuern, spannenden Geschichten und mancher Überraschung. Am wichtigsten jedoch: es bestärkt kleine und große Jungs darin, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. "Dieses Buch kann Leben retten. Dieses Buch kann Leben verändern. Dieses Buch kann dazu beitragen eine neue Generation von Jungs hervorzubringen, die es wagen ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen." - Benjamin Zephaniah Mit spannenden Biografien von großen Persönlichkeiten, wie: Ai Weiwei, Barack Obama, Benjamin Zephaniah, Bill Gates, Christopher Paolini, Confucius, Daniel Radcliffe, Galileo Galilei, Hans Scholl, Harvey Milk, Jamie Oliver, Jesse Eisenberg, Jim Henson, John Green, John Lennon, Lionel Messi, Louis Armstrong, Louis Braille, Ludwig van Beethoven, Mahatma Gandhi, Muhammad Ali, Nelson Mandela, Nikola Tesla, Oscar Wilde, Patch Adams, Ralph Lauren, Roald Dahl, Salvador Dalí, Siddhartha Gautama, Stephen Hawking, Steven Spielberg, Tank Man, Thomas Edison, Vincent van Gogh
