The Architecture Lover s Guide to Rome

Rome’s architectural remains date as far back as the city’s founding in the 8th century BCE. The primitive settlement that began on the Palatine Hill grew over the next thousand years to the caput mundi—the capital of the world—the largest, most powerful presence in the ancient Western world. Along the way, Rome’s architectural styles, whether developed organically or appropriated from the cultures it subjugated and absorbed, were physical evidence of the politics, propaganda and pragmatism of the times. Written for readers passionate about Rome and how its architecture is inimitably linked to the city’s history, The Architecture Lover’s Guide to Rome is the armchair architect’s tour of the Eternal City. It provides a timeline that begins with the founding of Rome and documents its significant architectural monuments and styles through the millennia, with photos, maps and practical information for visiting.

Adam Is God  Eve Is Us

What if I told you that no human died in the great flood? Would that change the story a bit? What about that story where God asked his friend Abraham to sacrifice his son? Why do I ask these questions about the Bible? Because these questions need to be answered if I am to believe a God of love authored this book. If you want to join me on this journey, you won't look at God or the Bible the same again. And yes, there are aliens in here too.

Carved Histories

In this book Roger Neich follows his earlier study, Painted Histories, with an account and analysis of the major tradition of Maori woodcarving. The Ngati Tarawhai woodcarvers of the Rotorua district have maintained a continuous distinctive style of carving from pre-European times to the present day. As the most prolific and one of the most influential schools of Maori carvers in New Zealand, they have played a critical role in the whole modern history of the development and survival of Maori carving. With the establishment of the government-sponsored Rotorua School of Maori Art in 1928, it was a Ngati Tarawhai carver, Eramiha Kapua, who became the main tutor and helped his traditional tribal art to make the transition into a modern 'national' art.

Perhaps Heaven

Witness the trials and triumphs of the eternal warrior, John David Saxxon, in life and beyond death. "Perhaps Heaven" is an intimate blend of fact, fantasy, and fiction.

Holyoke  Massachusetts

The story of Holyoke, the industrial marvel of the mid-nineteenth century, begins in the small church-centered farming community at the turn of the 18th century. It wasn?t until the mid-1840s, about the time the Connecticut River Railroad was built through Ireland Parish, that the little village on the rapids began to attract the attention of outsiders. In 1848, Holyoke, with its proposed configuration of dams, canals, and mills, became the first planned industrial city in the United States. Laborers, earning eighty-five cents a day, built three dams across the rapids and excavated nearly five miles of canals. Though intended as a textile city, by 1890 there were twenty-six paper mills. As the mills proliferated, a steady source of labor was needed, and immigration began in earnest.Holyoke, Massachusetts: Stories Carved in Stone, takes you into Holyoke's graveyards for a look at more than two hundred and fifty years of history, and the people who lived it.This third book in the Stories Carved in Stone series completes the three-part overview of early West Springfield, Massachusetts, before Agawam and Holyoke became towns. Together they present a full picture of the gravestone carvers, the mourning practices, and the families who lived and died here. Gravestone fans and genealogists alike will find much to explore in these old cemeteries.

Wrath

The fourth in The Faithful and the Fallen series, Wrath by John Gwynne is the breathtaking, pulse-pounding conclusion to an epic series. It’s time to brave the final battle . . . Events are coming to a climax in the Banished Lands, as the war reaches new heights. King Nathair has seized the fortress at Drassil, and now possesses three of the Seven Treasures. And with Calidus and Queen Rhin, Nathair will do anything to obtain the rest. They will allow him to open a portal to the Otherworld – so Asroth and his demon-horde can break into the Banished Lands and finally become flesh. Meanwhile Corban has been captured by the Jotun, warrior giants who ride enormous bears into battle. His warband scattered, Corban must make new allies to survive. But can he bond with competing factions of warlike giants? Somehow he must, to counter the threat Nathair represents. His life hangs in the balance – and with it, the fate of the Banished Lands. Truth, courage and loyalty will be tested as never before.
