Les Misérables: A Novel
Les Misérables: A
Few novels ever swept across the world with such overpowering impact as Les Misérables. Within 24 hours, the first Paris edition was sold out. In other great cities of the world it was devoured with equal relish.Sensational, dramatic, packed with rich excitement and filled with the sweep and violence of human passions, Les Misérables is not only superb adventure but a powerful social document. The story of how the convict Jean-Valjean struggled to escape his past and reaffirm his humanity, in a world brutalized by poverty and ignorance, became the gospel of the poor and the oppressed.

Bolivian Exploration, 1913-1914
From inside the book: Some account of the more recent explorations in which I have been engaged in South America has been requested for the Journal, and perhaps needs less apology in that three of the small party of four Englishmen are either at or destined for the front, including myself, and the record carries somewhat interesting information. Over certain details I must for the present draw a veil (lifted, however, for the confidential archives of the R.G.S.), because I think there is some probability of the scientific societies combining to prosecute investigations after the war, when, if I or members of the party survive, some very necessary aid may be lent to such a purpose.

I had come to the turn of the road; and for better or worse I chose the forest path.” – Percy Fawcett The heroes of each generation reflect the conditions, priorities, and goals of the era in which they reside. In the United States and throughout Europe, the wilderness explorer enjoyed widespread public adulation long before leading sports figures, rock stars, and astronauts of later decades. The ingenuity of the Industrial Revolution gave way to early manned flight, and other breakthroughs in communication, and travel. The British Empire flourished across the globe, incorporating entirely dissimilar cultures into its stylized world view. Within this social canon, the explorer of the Victorian and post-Victorian eras fit perfectly within a nationalistic urge to unveil the secrets of every continent. Even expeditions to both poles became the rage among home-bound vicarious adventurers. Throughout climes featuring thick ice and palm trees alike, the maps of the day featured enormo...

Finally, convinced that he had discovered the location, he set out for the last time toward destination “Z” in 1925, never to be heard from again.This thrilling and mysterious account of Fawcett’s ten years of travels in deadly jungles and forests in search of a secret city was compiled by his younger son, Fawcett's companion on his journeys, from manuscripts, letters, and logbooks. An international sensation when it was first published in 1953, Exploration Fawcett was praised by the likes of Graham Greene and Harold Nicolson, and found its way to Ernest Hemingway's bookshelf.
