But when a storm came from the sea, that way of life ended. Now a nomadic culture, theyve become experts at finding the best places to live, gather, and thrive. They follow their curiosity to find new lands each season, and those wanderings bring them to an area of rich farmland too enticing to ever leave. They call it Guiniloupay. A few years after they build their new settlement, strangers-a band of penguins from the east-come to their fields with dire news. The penguins have been driven from their home and need help and refuge. Fearing the worst, the guinea pigs form an alliance with the penguins, naming their leader, King Penjay, ruler of Guiniloupay. Soon after the alliance is formed between the two races, a new era of prosperity begins. Guiniloupay starts to expand, and word soon spreads. It is only a matter of time before the good news of their success inspires jealousy and fear in others, including the warlike Mouse Empire in the West. Emperor Bandit calls for the immediate destruction of Guiniloupay, sending five thousand of his most viscous mouse knights to attack the penguins and guinea pigs. For two years, the enslaved residents of Guiniloupay labor to rebuild their former home to suit the whims of their new emperor. But the time is coming soon when they will rise up to defend their home and way of life. Joseph Browns Through the Ages of Guiniloupay began as a short story he wrote with a friend in sixth grade. Throughout the years, he expanded the stories into a five-book series. He grew up in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania, and is currently serving in the US Air Force. This item ships from multiple locations.

In the nearby town of Willoak, Striker, a young Vulparian man, discovers he has a rare trait, which is only known as Gemini. Even though many would call this power a gift, he thinks of it as only a curse. His best friend, Camille, helps Striker deal with this dilemma. Strangely, she is somehow connected to Gemini.

Even though it has been two years since he traveled back in time to ancient Mexico with his friend, Rosa Guzman, two questions continue to haunt him: Why hasnt Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent who guided Rosa and him through their time travels, returned as he had promised Who is his real father Peter knows the secret will be revealed once he passes his final test. When Quetzalcoatl finally shows up, the boy cannot help but feel a little anxious about his most important mission to date. After Peter and Rosa travel back in time once more to the last days of the Aztec Empire, they are taken to Lord Montezuma, who declares that Topiltzin, the incarnation of Quetzalcoatl, is returning to reclaim his throne. When he hears hostile warriors are advancing toward the capital, Montezuma is convinced their leader is Topiltzin and decides to welcome him to avoid a war of all the gods. But unfortunately, Montezuma could not be more wrong. In the exciting conclusion to the Tollan Trilogy, two teenage adventurers must create peace between the conquerors and the people of ancient Mexico-before the future of America is changed forever and Peters past is finally revealed.

On the right is that built by Manuel Bryennios; on the left, another of the brother Emperors Basil II and Constantine IX. The outer gate is a ruin. Inside the wall, on the right, hangs by a chain the mace of the Janissary Idris. It is a stone sphere with an iron handle. A commemorative inscription in Turkish, below, extols the prowess of the Janissary, and declares the weight of the mace to be eighty-six okes, or two hundred and thirty-six and one-half pounds. Under this gate, by a disused drain, the Caesar Strategopoulos, with a handful of followers, crawled in 12G1, and once inside, broke it down, and so let in his army, thus capturing the city and ending the Latin Empire. Opposite the gate outside, at an angle in the road, is a peculiar row of seven Turkish tombstones. They evoke recollections of Byron and Dumas, of Childe Harold and Monte Cristo, of beautiful Basil ike and mysterious Haidee, of the Lake of Scodra and the Greek Revolution. The largest tombstone bears the following inscription: Here lies the head of the famous Ali Pasha of Tepelen, who, through more than fifty years, toiled for the independence of Albania. In the other graves are the heads of his sons, Veli and Mouktar, and the bodies of four near kinsmen. After the execution of the dreaded chieftain, his white-haired head was exposed on a golden plate at the Gate of the Seraglio. It was the property and perquisite of the executioner. He refused a large sum offered for it by an English showman, and sold it at a far less price to the Sheik Souleiman, a playmate and lifelong friend of the dead Pasha. Hence, instead of being. . .

But Swedens domain, like that of Denmark, soon began to shrink, after Peter the Great planned his systematic advance for a northern outlet. Peter took the Swedish fortress on the Neva and laid in 1703 the foundation of St. Petersburg. Under Charles XII the Swedes assumed again the aggressive and carried the war far into Peters own country, in a campaign which, although it resulted in apparent disaster and great economic suffering for Sweden, served, after all, perhaps, to moderate Russias headlong advance. Peter ultimately acquired the Swedish provinces south of the Gulf of Finland, and later in the century the partition of Poland brought the boundaries of Russia south to Prussia, near the Memcl River. In 1809 Sweden was obliged to relinquish Finland also to Russia. Although for a century Finland has been regarded as a buffer between Sweden and Russia, of late its Russification has proceeded more rapidly, and military railroads make the length of its western shores easily accessible from St. Petersburg. Hence The Warning Word of Sven Hedin, the popular subscription for battleships, the Bondetag and the recent political crisis in Sweden. Although Sweden and Denmark are separated only by the narrow Sound that flows between Malmo and Copenhagen, the contemporary foreign policies of the two governments are radically different. Both nations preserve an armed neutrality, ready for any general European conflict. Sweden technically is armed against Russia, and is apparently making every effort to maintain friendly relations--in commerce, in politics and in education--with the German Empire, with which the kingdom is being closely knit by rail and sea. To Denmark, on the other han. . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN., RareBooksClub, Bryce Cullen Publishing. Paperback. New. Paperback. 498 pages.

Del Verdan, a young Talent gifted with telekinetic abilities that enable him to control the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water, is still untrained in these faculties. Unrestrained use of his power would lead to a horrible death by depletion. When Dels parents are murdered and his younger brother, Wil, kidnapped by forces of the Phaton Empire, Del and his two childhood friends, Zack and Amela, find themselves on the run. Del is soon faced with the ultimate decision: make his way to the Academy of Talents to learn how to safely use his power, or try to rescue his brother, most likely dying in the process. To make matters even worse, Del learns from Gerard Azron, the town drunk-turned-prophet, that he is the focal point of an ancient prophecy predicting a great cataclysm capable of destroying all life on earth. Gerard believes Del to be the strongest Talent in thousands of years-and the only Talent able to save the planet. Torn between his loyalty to his brother and his responsibility to the rest of the world, Del embarks upon a journey that will alter him forever. And with a massive secret yet to be uncovered, Dels life will change in ways he never could have imagined. This item ships from multiple locations.

Excerpt: . . . who knew the country better than himself. He would have continued the struggle if Vitellius had not concentrated his troops, menacing Mesopotamia, and while Artabanus was thus made uneasy by the prospect of a conflict with the Romans, Sinnaces renewed his intrigues at the instigation of Vitellius. The defeats of Artabanus encouraged the conspirators; their party increased daily, and, as Artabanus had always ruled by fear rather than by kindness, his position became untenable, and he fled to the Hyrcani and Carmanii, his old Scythian friends, whose kings were his relatives. He justly expected that the Parthians would soon repeat their hostile proceedings against him. While Artabanus thus fled from his kingdom, Vitellius with the main body of his army, and accompanied by Tiridates, crossed the Euphrates, on the eastern banks of which he was met by a strong body of Parthian cavalry, headed by Ornospades, a Parthian noble, but an old friend of Tiberius, under whom he had commanded with success in the Dalmatian war, being then in exile. Soon after him arrived Sinnaces with more troops, and his father Abdageses with the royal treasures. Vitellius exhorted Tiridates to reign with dignity, and to maintain the friendly relations between the Parthians and the Romans, upon which he withdrew with his troops to Syria. The expulsion of Artabanus was the result of two campaigns, and consequently took place in A. d. 36. For some time the authority of Tiridates was respected; he took several towns of which the adherents of Artabanus were masters, especially Seleucia on the Tigris, but he did little for the pacification of an empire disturbed by civil faction, and having allowed himself to be ruled by Abdageses, he thereby displeased Hiero and Phraates, two. . .

Excerpt: . . . all rights and privileges secured by existing treaties between China and other foreign Powers --appears to be greatly weakened by the facts immediately following them in the same letter. And in view of the closing words of the despatch-- But not that Russia should abuse the lease which has been granted by a friendly Power to arbitrarily transform a closed and principally military port into a commercial port, like any other --the earlier satisfaction seems even to be negatived. THE SETTLEMENT or TIIE ISSUE. The question arises, What else could have been done Clearly the resources of diplomacy have been exhausted in the efforts to bring about a permanent settlement. There appears to have been only two courses open. One was to yield to Russia with a protest, and this has been done by the British Government. The other was an appeal to arms. Taking the latter alternative, one naturally asks, On what ground would the sword have been unsheathed On moral grounds, or on the ground of expediency Suppose we say on moral grounds, and, in support of our position, we urge the plea that, consonant with our treaty rights, we had been endeavouring to open up China to the trade of the world; but that Russia, by her strategic position recently acquired in that country, and her restrictive tariffs, threatens to dissipate those endeavours. The idea of opening to a people the commerce of the civilised world from which to select its supplies, is in itself a grand conception; and, as making skilful execution, and moderate prices, the guarantees for the sale of goods, stimulating between manufacturers a healthy rivalry, and producing in the goods wrought higher and higher degrees of quality, such an idea confers, both upon the producer and. . .

Their loyalty and courage is as legendary as the affection with which they are regarded by the British military and civilians alike. It was not always so. At the beginning of the 19th century, as the British empire inexorably expanded its inflfl uence to embrace the Indian Sub-Continent, the Nepalese empire itself covered huge areas of Northern India - stretching at times from the borders of the Sikh kingdom in the west to the foothills of the Himalayas where they meet the Bay of Bengal. When these two empires clashed, the British certainly experienced an unpleasant surprise. For they confronted warriors of astonishing bravery, gallantry and ferocity, with no mean grasp of tactics. So began a hard-fought, touch-and-go war between enemies who would one day be inseparable friends. This is the story of that war! This item ships from multiple locations.
