Welcome to the 1770s, the decade of big hats, big wigs, and big ideas. You might have learned about the American Revolution in history classes, but this book will tell you everything your teachers couldn’t. Get ready to learn all about the American Revolution, from the ins and outs of the Enlightenment philosophy that inspired the war to stories you’ve heard about the Founding Fathers that may be straight-up false, from how the War of Independence sparked a wave of new bids for revolution from Ireland to Japan to why the movie where Nicholas Cage steals the Declaration of Independence is a great piece of American Revolution philosophy. You’ll learn: Who were the big players off the battlefield?What does “no taxation without representation” actually mean?Was George Washington actually as great as everyone says? How did science experiments cause the American Revolution?And what was Canada doing the whole time?Each chapter of our trivia books is broken up into 15 short sections that will introduce you to major players, major ideas, or majorly weird stories. Unlike your high school history teacher, we’re not going to put you to sleep with the names of a million generals or the dates and places of every time the British and Americans looked at each other funny. To go along with the 15 short break downs of the war, every chapter also ends with 20 fun facts, or bits of trivia, and five questions to test your knowledge on the American Revolution.So put on your tricorn hat, ready your stars and stripes, and get ready to learn.  1.

Susan Conant continues to surprise--this time by involving dog writer Holly Winter in a wickedly amusing tale full of dastardly deeds and delightful eccentrics. An avid devotion to the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and an equally avid devotion to dogs, combine to draw Holly Winter and her two beloved malamutes, Rowdy and Kimi, into one of Conant's most original and entertaining mysteries to date. Rowdy has finished his training as a therapy dog and now accompanies Holly on weekly visits to the Gateway Nursing Home, where they meet Althea Battlefield, still formidable at the age of ninety, and her two elderly, admiring cohorts, Hugh and Robert--all fanatic devotees of the Master (as they call Sherlock Holmes). When Althea's grandnephew is murdered at the home of her younger sister, Ceci, everyone is horrified, but it's the plight of Ceci herself--who is being victimized by an unscrupulous animal psychic--that finally unites this unlikely group in a crime-stopping spree that requires not only the finely tuned ratiocination of the Holmes admirers but the eager cooperation of an outraged Holly and the very particular talents of her willing canine accomplices. No special knowledge of the Sherlockian canon is required for the utmost enjoyment of this engaging romp, and Conant's own devoted followers will be delighted to find her dog-loving alter ego, Holly Winter, still poking fun at the world of Cambridge eccentrics and dog fancy fanatics, but also expanding her horizons into the world of literary trivia and--yes--feline rescue, however initially reluctant. From the Hardcover edition.

So You Think You Know Gettysburg?
21,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

If you didn't sleep through U.S. history class, you've heard of Pickett's Charge. If you've seen the movie Gettysburg, you're familiar with Little Round Top. If you've been to the battlefield, you've seen the Wheatfield. But do you know about the ten or so Confederates buried by accident in Gettysburg National Cemetery? Or about the Union general whose embezzling ways kept his bust from being displayed on his brigade's memorial? Or how that same embezzling general, when asked why he had no monument at Gettysburg, could rightly reply, 'Why, hell, the whole battlefield is my monument'? Authors James and Suzanne Gindlesperger have visited Gettysburg an average of five times annually over the past twenty years. So You Think You Know Gettysburg? shows why they find it a place not only of horrible carnage and remarkable bravery but endless fascination. Who, or what, was Penelope? Whose dog is depicted on the Eleventh Pennsylvania Monument, and why? What are the Curious Rocks? Why does Gettysburg have two markers for the battle's first shot, and why are they in different locations? The plentiful maps, the nearly 200 site descriptions, and the 270-plus color photos in So You Think You Know Gettysburg? will answer questions you didn't even know you had about America's greatest battlefield. James and Suzanne Gindlesperger are the authors of So You Think You Know Gettysburg?, which was the bronze winner in the travel guide category for ForeWord Reviews' Book of the Year Award in 2010. James is a 'Friend of the Field' at Gettysburg and the author of three books about the Civil War: Escape from Libby Prison, Seed Corn of the Confederacy, and Fire on the Water. Suzanne is the cofounder of Pennwriters, a professional organization of published and aspiring authors. The couple lives in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. 'This is not a book that fits into one slot easily. This is a book wearing many hats . . . defying a quick or easy description. Part guidebook, part trivia quiz, and part history with a series of fine color photos . . . a well-organized, very attractive, fun book . . . ' - James Durney, TOCWOC, A Civil War Blog
