Two boys and two girls—Sparky and Notch, and Sandy and Neff—are best friends. They have skied and snowboarded together into every corner of Jagged Peak in search of adventure, but always within the safety of that ski area’s boundaries. Until now, when they follow the tracks of a strange, snow-sliding creature into the volcanic out-of-bounds. And vanish… …Into another world. Three land deep in an eerie jungle and one falls high on an icy cornice—all of them ditched by a tricky, rogue wormhole, which disappears over distant, snow-covered peaks. The four have no idea—yet—that they’re on a volcanic island in the middle of a vast sea, and that the wormhole—their only way home—has vanished across that sea. Nor can they possibly imagine the dangers that lie ahead. Filled with wildly imaginative creatures, humanoids, jungles and mountains—plus a wormhole with a mind of its own—this hair-raising adventure should appeal to preteens, teens and fantasy-loving adults everywhere

The Snowy Owl - possibly the world's sexiest bird - needs little introduction. This massive white owl breeds throughout the Arctic, wherever there are voles or lemmings to hunt, from Scandinavia through northern Russia to Canada and Greenland. Southerly movements in winter see North American birds travel as far south as the northern United States, while infrequent vagrants on the Shetlands and other northern isles are a magnet for birders. The Snowy Owl gives this popular bird the full Poyser treatment, with sections on morphology, distribution, palaeontology and evolution, habitat, breeding, diet, population dynamics, movements, interspecific relationships and conservation, supported by some fabulous photography. A major strength is the availability to the authors of Russian literature, which is generally out of reach for Western scientists.

The story took place in Snowy Mountain in the coldest part of Manchuria, one Winter's morning in 1781. The Dragon Lodge party ran into the Horse Spring Banditry who were there to unearth a buried casket. They were waylaid yet by the Peking Overland Convoy. All three parties had designs on the metal casket, supposedly housing a poniard, which was an heirloom of the Martial Brotherhood. A monk arrived on the scene and the invited the parties to the eyrie on the summit. The lord of the eyrie happened to be away summoning help to fight Fox Volant of the Snowy Mountain, who was scheduled to arrive on the summit at noon. While waiting, each one in the parties began recounting incidents which took place some twenty years before. The excitement, intrigue and action in these incidents are well dramatized, with one event firmly intertwining with others in the past, developing into a vendetta involving the offspring of several families. The story ends with a fight between Fox, the hero of the story, and his sworn enemy, but the result of the fight is untold, left to the imagination and creative power of individual readers.
