Valverde's Gold (eBook, ePUB)
5,42 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Deliciously detailed and dense, as satisfying as any mystery. . . spellbinding' As a ransom for his King, a Incan general leaves a hoard of gold for the Spanish Conquistador Pizzaro. In mysterious circumstances the gold disappeared leaving only its legend, and a map, behind. In Valverde's Gold Mark Honigsbaum attempts to unravel a myth that has obsessed men for centuries and has led to many fruitless and fatal treasure hunts. Undeterred by this, and armed with a Victorian botanist's map, Honigsbaum embarks on an epic journey into the dark heart of South America. This is the story of how gold can intoxicate even the most mild mannered of historians, about how characters - both real and fictional - become seized with the desire to claim lost treasure from even the most inhospitable areas of the world. On his quest he meets a bizarre array of treasure hunters, profiteers and traffickers, all with an unquenchable thirst for the hoard that has eluded man for centuries. Battling through the mountains and jungles, Mark Honigsbaum brings us closer to understanding the allure of the treasure hunt, as he gets closer to the hidden gold. Rich in description, atmosphere and adventure, Valverde's Gold is an unforgettable journey into greed, obsession and legend, and a must for anyone who has dreamed of being Indiana Jones.

Wolver's Gold: The Wolvers, Book 5 , Hörbuch, D...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Finding gold where you least expect it... Lone wolf and Special Investigator for the ubiquitous Eugene Begley, Challenger McCall is sent to the town of Gold Gulch to take care of a problem that might involve the exposure of the wolver community. For McCall, it's like stepping back in time - 150 years back in time. Gold Gulch is a tourist attraction where the wolvers take their work so seriously, they continue their Victorian lives long after the tourists have gone home. Much like their 19th century counterparts, the women are overworked and underpaid. Rachel Kincaid is one such woman. Exercising the only power she holds, she has become a wolver oddity; a spinster who refuses to mate. Why would she, when she already has to take care of the short-staffed hotel, its restaurant, and her ne'er-do-well father? Angry and bitter, Rachel decides she deserves a better hand than the one she's been dealt and finds herself drawn to the handsome new sheriff, Challenger McCall. Why shouldn't she, for once in her life, enjoy the same freedom as the Soiled Doves on the hill? Things get complicated when Rachel's wolf awakens after a long sleep and the town's women seem to awaken along with it. Papa's gambling debts leave them on the brink; the pack is at risk; and the women rebel. Oh, and don't forget the murders. If ever a pack needed rescuing, Gold Gulch is it, but as the girls up at Daisy's Bouquet point out - A smart woman needs to look after herself! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Leah Frederick.

These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. Featuring original illustrations by John Leech, with an afterword by Anna South. It is only through a series of eerie, life-changing visits from the ghost of his deceased business partner Marley and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future that Scrooge begins to see the error of his ways. With heart-rending characters, rich imagery and evocative language, the hopeful message of A Christmas Carol remains as significant today as when it was first published.
