  • af Jack London
    174,95 kr.

    1890’erne. Guldfeberen raser i Klondike. Buck, et velvoksent gadekryds, bliver stjålet fra sine velhavende ejere og sit behagelige liv og fragtet til Alaska for at tjene som slædehund. På turene over de frosne floder, mellem lejrenes snedriver og i de dybe skove stifter han bekendtskab med en brutal verden, hvor kun de stærkeste overlever. Her gælder loven om kølle og tand, og hverdagen i hundespandet er en kamp på liv og død. Men naturen kalder på Buck og vækker hans instinkter, og gennem prøvelser og modgang lærer han at tilpasse sig, overleve – og leve.Når naturen kalder er en barsk, men også smuk roman om heltemod, overlevelse og det vilde, der bor i os. Den udkom i 1903 og er siden da blevet genudgivet og filmatiseret et utal af gange, og i dag har den status som en af verdenslitteraturens mest­ læste og el­skede klassikere.Jack London (1876-1916) blev født i Californien og havde allerede som teenager set mere af verden og dens strabadser, end mange får set på et helt liv. Han har været både østerspirat, sømand, sæljæger, vagabond og guldgraver i Klondike under Guldfeberen 1896-1899. Når naturen kalder udkom i 1903 og blev Londons første bestseller.

  • - Beretninger fra klimafronten
    af Robert Zola Christensen & Sebastian H. Mernild
    118,95 - 167,95 kr.

    Gennem mere end 10 år har forfatteren Robert Zola Christensen rejst i hælene på den kendte danske klimaforsker Sebastian H. Mernild. Sammen har de to været på ekspedition til nogle af verdens mest fjerne egne for at dokumentere, hvad det forandrende klima gør ved vores klode. For der hersker ingen tvivl. Klimaet er under enorme forandringer. Der bliver målt stigende vandstande mange steder, det er blevet varmere, og isen smelter på polerne. Konsekvenserne er enorme.I Da kulden forsvandt tager Sebastian H.  Mernild og Robert Zola Christensen os med ud på Indlandsisen for at bore efter is i flere kilometers dybde, vi er fanget i en snestorm højt oppe i Andesbjergene, og så møder vi de mennesker, der må forlade deres hjem, fordi klimaet tvinger dem væk.Bogen er en barsk og samtidig livsbekræftende reportagerejse til klimafronten, hvor to venner – naturvidenskabsmanden og humanisten – dokumenterer den brutale og uundgåelige udvikling, vi alle er vidne til, og sammen reflekterer de to over, hvad der skal til for at fylde fremtiden med håb.

  • - Alaska, Yukon og Californien
    af Lars Nielsen
    187,95 - 197,95 kr.

    Navnene Alaska, Yukon og Californien emmer af GULDFEBER, uspoleret vild natur og eventyrlyst. Forfatteren af denne bog har siden midten af 80’erne været draget af disse egne af Nordamerika og cyklet utallige gange rundt ”over there”. Mutters alene over bjerge, gennem skove og ørkener. I snestorme og brændende hede. Ofte i selskab med eksemplarer af det lokale dyreliv! Denne bog handler om, hvad der nemt kan ske, når man som cyklist prøver kræfter med et kraftfuldt vejr og vild natur. Hjælpen har ikke altid været ”lige om hjørnet”. Uddrag af bogen Jeg har sommetider vel travlt, når jeg er på cykeltur! Det var gået godt hidtil på denne dag. Jeg kunne se ind mod lufthavnen og centrum på min vej mod Henderson. Pludselig kunne jeg via mit simple vejkort på styrtasken ikke finde vej uden om motorvejen. Da jeg havde prøvet flere villaveje omkring til-/frakørslerne til denne ”freeway” mistede jeg tålmodigheden! Der var da for pokker kun en håndfuld kilometer hen til den del af vejstrækningen, hvor jeg vidste, at jeg måtte cykle. Hvad kunne der ske … ? Så det gjorde jeg! Jeg aner ikke, hvordan de gør det, amerikanerne, men der er aldrig gået mere end få sekunder med min motorvejscykling, før end at der har siddet mindst to betjente i røven af mig! Således også denne gang! Om forfatteren Lars Nielsen (f. 1955) tog realeksamen på Hobro Gymnasium i 1973. Arbejdede som slagteriarbejder fra 1973 til 2017, hvor han gik på efterløn. Han har cyklet siden 1980 og har været jorden rundt fire gange. Han holder foredrag om sit cykelliv og er blevet hædret ved at blive optaget i ”Travellers Club, Oslo” og ”Adventurers Club, Los Angeles”, ligesom han har været medlem hos ”De berejstes Klub, Danmark”.

    Nothing prepares you for a bear encounter better than learning from those who have experienced bears first-hand. Alaska Bear Tales is a collection of more than 200 real-life accounts filled with all the horror, courage, and even humor inherent when man meets bear.

This option (OA plus a printed edition) is available to all authors of Bibliotheca Lichenologica from now on. Publications on the lichens of Alaska go back 182 years, but a modern, comprehensive review of literature on the diversity of Alaskan lichens has been lacking. The authors present a compendium of 2126 accepted taxa fully referenced with published reports from Alaska and their exact localities. Of these 2126 taxa, 1827 are lichen fungi, 277 are lichen-associated fungi and 22 are putatively saprotrophic fungi usually treated in lichenological studies. Nearly half of all species have been first reported since 1997. A total of 1594 names are treated as synonyms or misapplications, and 140 further taxa are excluded as erroneous or doubtful.

    I ALASKA KAN MAN DØ PÅ HUNDREDE MÅDER, MEN DET ER IKKE ALTID NATUREN, DER ER DEN FARLIGSTE …Leni er tretten år, da hendes impulsive far beslutter, at familien skal flytte til Alaska. I vildmarken kan de endelig leve, som de selv vil, være frie og uafhængige. I første omgang lader Alaska til at være svaret på deres bønner. De lange solskinsdage og de lokales sammenhold og generøsitet opvejer familiens manglende forberedelse og svindende ressourcer. Leni begynder at tro på en bedre fremtid for sig selv og sin familie, og følelsen af at høre til vokser, da hun bliver venner med den betænksomme Matthew.Men efterhånden som vinteren nærmer sig, og mørket sænker sig over Alaska, bliver forældrenes i forvejen vanskelige forhold forværret. I deres lille hytte – dækket af sne og indhyllet i atten timers mørke – går den frygtelige sandhed op for Leni og hendes mor: De er alene, og der er ingen, som kan hjælpe dem.Himlen over vildmarken er en smuk og barsk fortælling om jagten på et bedre liv, kærlighed, overlevelse og den rå vildskab, der skjuler sig i både mennesket og naturen.

In a moment that lasted mere seconds, she began to question everything she thought she knew about bears. How could this docile creature be the same one with a fearsome reputation for vicious attacks?

    The true, harrowing story of the ill-fated 1913 Canadian Arctic Expedition and the two men who came to define it.In the summer of 1913, the wooden-hulled brigantine Karluk departed Canada for the Arctic Ocean. At the helm was Captain Bob Bartlett, considered the world's greatest living ice navigator. The expedition's visionary leader was a flamboyant impresario named Vilhjalmur Stefansson hungry for fame.Just six weeks after the Karluk departed, giant ice floes closed in around her. As the ship became icebound, Stefansson disembarked with five companions and struck out on what he claimed was a 10-day caribou hunting trip. Most on board would never see him again.Twenty-two men and an Inuit woman with two small daughters now stood on a mile-square ice floe, their ship and their original leader gone. Under Bartlett's leadership they built make-shift shelters, surviving the freezing darkness of Polar night. Captain Bartlett now made a difficult and courageous decision. He would take one of the young Inuit hunters and attempt a 1000-mile journey to save the shipwrecked survivors. It was their only hope.Set against the backdrop of the Titanic disaster and World War I, filled with heroism, tragedy, and scientific discovery, Buddy Levy's Empire of Ice and Stone tells the story of two men and two distinctively different brands of leadership-one selfless, one self-serving-and how they would forever be bound by one of the most audacious and disastrous expeditions in polar history, considered the last great voyage of the Heroic Age of Discovery.
