Bienvenue dans les jardins de l'Histoire ! Qui se souvient que des fanatiques invoquèrent l'aubépine pour perpétrer les massacres de la Saint-Barthélémy ? Et que sous le règne de Louis XIV un ingénieur mit au point une bombe à l'aconit comme arme chimique à utiliser au cours des sièges ? Que le pavot provoqua la chute de l'Empire chinois ? Sait-on que fleurs, plantes ou arbres ont depuis l'aube des temps joué un rôle historique ? Qu'ils ont servi de symboles religieux, d'emblèmes politiques, de signes de ralliement ou de communion ? Qu'ils ont été des objets d'études pour les scientifiques, des sources d'inspiration pour les artistes ? Et parfois aussi l'enjeu d'épineuses tractations diplomatiques, d'âpres rivalités économiques, et la cause de bien des guerres... ? De l'aconit napel au yucca de Josué, l'historienne Hélène Tierchant a retrouvé la trace de toutes ces plantes qui ont défrayé la chronique au fil des siècles.

The land where you can have a daring adventure boulder-hopping across waterfalls in the Outer Banks or hiking the breathtaking alpine trails through the Appalachian Mountains and its foothills. Toast North Carolina with these beautiful photographs! "The blessed land, the best land, the Old North State!

After having been kept in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana by various masters, Northup was able to write to friends and family in New York, who were in turn able to secure his release. Northup's account provides extensive details on the slave markets in Washington, D.C. and New Orleans and describes at length cotton and sugar cultivation on major plantations in Louisiana.

Manuel Pereira da Ponte Martins, beloved dictator of the state of Teresina in Brazil, develops agoraphobia the day a fortune-teller predicts he will die being torn limb from limb by an angry mob. His life becomes unbearable and he decides to hire a double to stand in while he set off to enjoy himself in the fleshpots of Europe. A few years later, the barber-turned-dictator also grows tired of running the country and employs the same trick as his predecessor to leave for Hollywood. On the boat there, he introduces himself as Charlie Chaplin. But everyone is convinced that he is none other than Rudolph Valentino disguised as Chaplin. When he arrives in New York, both the real actors are waiting for him... Back in Teresina, the doubles follow one another, fooling the people with ease. Then Pereira comes back. He is astonished to discover that his stand-in doesn't look anything like him and reacts in a way that can only precipitate his meeting with Fate. The Dictator and The Hammock is wildly original and extremely funny.

We are not all created equal. Seventeen-year-old Cody and her boyfriend, James, were two of the lucky ones randomly selected before birth to receive genetic engineering. Known as the Ones, this one percent of the population is healthy, beautiful, and talented...and to some that's not fair. Mounting fear and jealousy of the Ones’ success leads to the creation of the Equality Movement, which quickly gains enough political traction to demote Cody, James, and others like them to second-class citizens. Cody knows even before the brick smashes through her window that it's going to be bad. As their school, the American government, and even family and friends turn against them, Cody begins to believe they have no other choice but to protect their own. She draws closer to a group of radical Ones led by the passionate and fevered Kai, and James begins to question just how far she is willing to go for the cause... Themes of justice, discrimination and terrorism mix with actual science to create a frightening version of our near future in Daniel Sweren-Becker's pulse-pounding thriller. An Imprint Book
