Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Prince Otto Island Nights Entertainments Father Damien (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Prince Otto Island Nights Entertainments Father Damien AT last, after so many years, I have the pleasure of re-introducing you to Prince Otto, whom you will remember a very little fellow, no bigger in fact than afew sheets of memoranda written for me by your kind hand. The sight of his name will carry you back to an old wooden house embowered in creepers; a house that was far gone in the respectable stages of antiquity and seemed indissoluble from the green garden in which it stood, and that yet was a sea-traveller in its younger days, and had come round the Horn piecemeal in the belly of a ship, and might have heard the seamen stamping and Shouting and the note of the boatswain's whistle. It will recall to you the nondescript inhabitants now so widely scatteredz the two horses, the dog, and the four cats, some of them still looking in your face as you read these lines the poor lady, so unfortunately mar ried to an author; the China boy, by this time, perhaps, baiting his line by the banks of a river in the Flowery Land; and in particular the Scot who was then sick apparently unto death, and whom you did so much to cheer and keep in good behaviour. You may remember that he was full of ambitions and designs: so soon as he had his health again completely, you may remember the fortune he was to earn, the journeys he' was to go upon, the de lights he was to enjoy and confer, and (among other matters) the masterpiece he was to make of Prince Otto!

The Juneau Gold Belt, Alaska, And, a Reconnaissance of Admiralty Island, Alaska (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Juneau Gold Belt, Alaska, And, a Reconnaissance of Admiralty Island, Alaska Systematic investigation of the mineral resources of Alaska by the United States Geolog ical Survey began in 1898. Much of the region being practically unknown, explorations and general reconnaissances had first to be made, and it was not until 1902 that the demand for general information concerning different portions of the Territory was sufficiently satisfied to permit making plans for detailed investigations similar to those in progress in the States. In the summer of 1902 Mr. W. J. Peters was detailed to make a topographic map of the vicinity of Juneau, and in 1w3 Mr. Arthur C. Spencer, assisted by Mr. Charles W. Wright, took up the study of the geologic formations and the ore deposits of the region. In addition to the investigation of the area covered by the detailed map, a geologic reconnaissance was made of the accessible portions of the mainland from Port Houghton northward to the head of Chilkat River, and all the important mining camps of the belt were visited. Unpublished topographic maps prepared by the Canadian Boundary Commission were available and facilitated the plotting of the general distribution of the rocks throughout the belt traversed. The present report upon the work of this field season is accompanied by topographic and geologic maps of the vicinity of Juneau, and of a mainland strip extending approximately zi) miles along the coast. A topographic map of Admiralty Island has been compiled by Mr. Wright, and studies pursued by him during the summer of 1904 form the basis of the geologic map of this large island. A description of the Porcupine placer district by Mr. Wright has been issued by the Survey 0, and preliminary papers upon the general region and upon the Treadwell mines have been published by the writer. Acknowledgment is due the mining fraternity of the region for many courtesies, and the writer is especially indebted to the management of the Treadwell mines for facilities extended during the examination of these properties, and to Mr. William Ebner, of Juneau, for cooperation and historical data.

Early History Long Island Sound and Its Approaches (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Early History Long Island Sound and Its Approaches Harrisses gives us the following translation from Ramusio, vol. iii., fos. 423-426, with a map bearing the inscription La Noovo Francia. The discourse is not dated; but Ramusio in his introduction says that it was written in the year 1539. - "This Coast was discovered 15 years ago by Giovanna da Varrazzano who took possession of the same in the name of King Francis and of my Lady the Regent. That Country is called French Land by many, even by the Portugues themselves." "The Regent was Louise de Savoie, the mother of Francis I., and this seems to account for the inscription both on the Maggiolo and Varrazano Maps." "Luisa," named for the French king's mother, is an island off the south coast of New England, and Adrian Block, in 1614, laid it down on his chart. It is now known as Block Island. Mercator's map of the world gives the globe a flat surface, and by his system of projection in proportional parts he locates in the right latitude and longitude C. S. St. John (Sandy Hook) which is also called, about this date, Cabo de Arenas, and Cabo da Malabrigo (Bad Shelter) for the southern part of Cape Cod, and he gives the indentation in the coast for Long Island Sound, which he names Baia Hondo, which, I am inclined to think is the first European name known to navigators; of this important arm of the sea called later by the Dutch "East River," a route through which, let me add, now more value passes in one direction than over any other water way on the American coast. It is my opinion, based on years of careful study of this problem, that during the fifteenth century when European navigators were engaged in exploring this section of the coast of New England, there was a chain of islands along the coast, which we will now locate south of a line drawn from Plymouth, Massachusetts, to Sandy Hook in New Jersey. They were sandy islands, compounded from the remnant of the Glacial formation on which Professor Dana of Yale has enlightened us; deposits of which here and there cling to rocks for a basis.

Historical and Statistical Memoranda, Relative to Passaic County, New Jersey (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Historical and Statistical Memoranda, Relative to Passaic County, New Jersey The first settlement in Passaic county was at Acquack anonk. The country so called by the Indians embraced the entire Passaic Valley, and highlands adjoining, on both sides the Passaic river, from the Yantacaw or Third river northerly to the Saddle river. The name appears to be first found in an Indian deed, dated April 4th, 1678, from Capteham Peeters, an Indian Sachem, to Hartman Mac hieison (vreeland), conveying a great Island lyeing in the River of Pisaick near by Aquickanucke by the Indians called Menehenicke (now known as Dundee Island). Hartman received a patent for the island from the E. J. Proprietors, January 6, 1685, he bargaining to pay yearly the chief or quit rent of one fatt henn. We next find Haquickenock mentioned in a deed dated July 15, 1678, from Sir George ('arteret (one of the original two propri etors of New Jersey) to Christopher Hoogland, a New York merchant, for two adjoining tracts of land, 278 acres in all, lying in what is now the city of Passaic, and which may be roughly described as bounded on the east by the Passaic river; north by Monroe street; west by Lexing ton avenue and Prospect street; south by River street and the river. The consideration was a yearly quit-rent of half a penny per acre, or 7d. In all. This tract was known, from the first purchaser, as Storne's (christo pher's) Point. February 16, 1679-80 (1680, New Style), Hoogland sold the property to Hartman Macheelsie (vree land), who occupied it with his brothers Johannes and Cornelius.

Causes of Dependency Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Causes of Dependency: Based on a Survey of Oneida County Oneida County has many times been spoken of as the keystone of that arch of broad, fertile, wealthy counties spanning the entire breadth of the Empire State. One foot of this arch rests on the waters of Lake Erie, Niagara Falls and the Niagara river in the west, and the other foot reaches down through the thriving valley of the Hudson to rest on New York Bay and Long Island Sound. The county lies within the valley of the Mohawk river whose waters thread the chasms of the most important pass in the great eastern divide. For centuries the bed of this picturesque river with its rolling valley hillsides has been celebrated in song and chronicle as the "Great Pass" of the eastern states. Within the borders of this county arise streams whose waters finally mingle with those of St. Lawrence, the Gulf of Mexico, Chesapeake Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean. The principle streams are the Mohawk river, the Black river and Wood and Oneida creeks. On the western boundary lies Oneida Lake, while within the boundaries are found White Lake, Long Lake, Bound Lake and Big Pond. As one approaches the upper boundary lines of the county there appear the shadowy aisles of the great "North Woods." The superficial area of the county is stated to be 1,215 square miles, 777,600 acres. It is comparable in area to the state of Rhode Island. The county is divided into twenty-six towns. It contains two cities of importance and a considerable number of incorporated villages. The broad central valley of the Mohawk extending through the county has always been of the utmost importance in directing the growth and activities of the community as a whole. This great valley extending from (west-northwest to east-southeast across the county is bordered by high table-lands both toward the north and toward the south, which are cut by numerous streams. These table-lands rising to an elevation varying from 800 to l,500 feet above the central valley, reach their highest point at Penn Mount which has an altitude of 1,727 feet above sea level.

History of New York City Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from History of New York City: From the Discovery to the Present Day The typography of New York Island, as it was first seen by Hudson, was as follows: "The lower part of it consisted of wood-crowned hills and beautiful grassy valleys, including a chain of swamps and marshes and a deep pond. Northward, it rose into a rocky, high ground. The sole inhabitants were a tribe of dusky Indians, - an off-shoot from the great nation of the Lenni Lenape, who inhabited the vast territory bounded by the Penobscot and Potomac, the Atlantic and Mississippi, - dwelling in the clusters of rude wigwams that dotted here and there the surface of the country. The rivers that gird the Island were as yet unstirred by the keels of ships, and the bark canoes of the native Manhattans held sole possession of the peaceful waters. "The face of the country, more particularly described, was gently undulating, presenting every variety of hill and dale, of brook and rivulet. The upper part of the Island was rocky, and covered by a dense forest; the lower part grassy, and rich in wild fruit and flowers. Grapes and strawberries grew in abundance in the fields, and nuts of various kinds were plentiful in the forests, which were also filled with abundance of game. The brooks and ponds were swarming with fish, and the soil was of luxuriant fertility. In the vicinity of the present "Tombs" was a deep, clear, and beautiful pond of fresh water (with a picturesque little island in the middle) - so deep, indeed, that it could have floated the largest shop in our navy, - which was for a long time deemed bottomless by its possessors. This was fed by large springs at the bottom, which kept its waters fresh and flowing, and had its outlet in a little stream which flowed into the East River, near the foot of James street. Smaller ponds dotted the Island in various places, two of which, lying near each other, in the vicinity of the present corner of the Bowery and Grand street, collected the waters of the high grounds which surrounded them. To the northwest of the Fresh Water Pond, or "Kolck," as it after wards came to be called, beginning in the vicinity of the present St. John's Park, and extending to the northward over an area of some seventy acres, lay an immense marsh, filled with reeds and brambles, and tenanted with frogs and water-snakes. A little rivulet connected this marsh with the Fresh Water Pond, which was also connected, by the stream which formed its outlet, with another strip of marshy land, covering the region now occupied by James, Cherry, and the adjacent streets. An unbroken chain of waters was thus stretched across the Island from James street at the southeast to Canal street at the northwest. An inlet occupied the place of Broad street, a marsh covered the vicinity of Ferry street, Rutgers street formed the center of another marsh, and a long line of meadows and swampy ground stretched to the northward along the eastern shore.

In 1618 Lord De La Warr, sailing along the Atlantic coast on his return to Virginia from England, died at sea opposite the mouth of "a goodly and noble river," which, as a perpetual monument to his memory, forever indicating the place of his death, was thence called the Delaware. Sailing up this broad river in 1631, noting the creeks and estuaries emptying into it, the Dutch commander, De Vries, discovered, about one hundred miles from its mouth, on the eastern shore, a large thickly wooded island, which he called Jacques Eylandt. The Swedes, coming some seven or eight years after, observing the same isle, with much better taste called it by its Indian name, Aquikanasra. Upon that island we are gathered to-night.

Excerpt from The Victorian Naturalist, Vol. 9: The Journal Magazine of the Field Naturalists' Club of Victoria YoL. VI. Nos.1-2. May-June, 1889.No. 65. ,(, Trip To Croajingolong. By Professor Baldwin Spencer and C.French, F.L.S. The trip of which the following is an account was first proposed to the Club by Baron von Mueller, who was anxious that advantage should be taken of the tracks now being cut through the district of Croajingolong. To him the Club is indebted for the kindly interest he has taken in the work, and for the naming of the rarer forms of plants brought back. It may be mentioned that considerable difficulty was experienced in the trip, owing to the extent of ground which had to be covered in a comparatively short time, and to the fact that the great scarcity of food for horses rendered long marches frequently imperative; also, over a considerable portion of the country recent bush fires have completely destroyed its vegetation. This was especially the case in Mthe district round about Bonang, where otherwise the flora would# probably have been most interesting. The party which started on 28 th December for Croajingolong Mwas but a small one when compared with the large number of Wfield naturalists who mustered on the deck of the Zady Loch last year bound for King Island. We only numbered five in all W.Messrs. French, Frost, Jackson, Searle, and Spencer. Through%. the courtesy of Mr. Prevot, the station-master at Princes Bridge, we were relieved of all trouble with regard to extra luggage. Two members of the club, bound for Morwell, accompanied us as far as that; and, after a hot journey, we reached Sale at I p.m. Sale may be described as small, sleepy, and respectable and we were by no means sorry when the coach put some distance between us and the township. The road leads along by the River Thompson, bordering upon which are rich alluvial flats, clear of water now, but doubtless deeply flooded in rainy seasons. The coach deposits its load, and the waggon its luggage, at a bridge built over the Latrobe River, close to the junction of this with the Thompson. We have just time to get on board the Dargo, and safely stow our luggage away, when the little steamer starts, and we are off at a good rate down the Latrobe. Ten miles of river have to be passed along before the Lakes are The authors are much indebted for assistance to Messrs. Frost and Searle: to the former for information with respect especially to birds, and to the lattev for measurements of heights and distances.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Report of the Commissioners of Fisheries of the State of California: For the Years 1870 and 1871 California has a seacoast extending through ten degrees of latitude, and a shore line of nearly eight hundred miles. The Coast Range of mountains, which adjoins the coast line for the greater part of this dis tance, creates by its western watershed nearly one hundred streams and rivers emptying into the Pacific Ocean. These streams and rivers vary from twenty to sixty miles in length. The drainage of the western slope of the Sierra Nevada, through seven degrees of latitude, forms several hundred streams, whose united waters make the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers - the first navigable for a distance of one hundred and eighty miles, and the last navigable one hundred miles from the ocean. The waters from the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada żow into brackish and salt lakes, in the State of Nevada, having no outlet into the ocean. Pyramid, the largest of these lakes, receiving the waters of the Truckee River, is forty miles long and twenty miles wide. The inland bays and fresh water lakes of California cover more than six hundred and fifty square miles - an area half as large as the State of Rhode Island. These few statistics are given that it may be clearly understood how extensive is the field over which, under the law, the Board is expected to prevent the wanton destruction of fish and required to compel the owners of dams to permit the free passage of fish to their native spawn ing beds. When it is further understood that the members of the Board neither receive nor expect compensation for their services other than the satisfaction of doing something towards the preservation of the fish now in our waters and adding to the food supply of the people by the introduction of new varieties, it will be acknowledged that if but a beginning has been made in this work, at least public attention has been called to the importance of the subject. If a few men of intelligence, living on the banks of each bay, river, and lake, will inform themselves of what has been done in other States and countries for the propagation and preservation of fish, they will create a public opinion that will cause the enactment of proper laws and compel their enforcement. The result will be that after a few years our river fisheries Will be largely increased, giving employment to a large number of men, and furnishing a cheap supply of nutritious food to many more people.

In the case of those names which are still in use, the modern spelling has been generally adopted, with note of the fact if the early spelling is greatly at variance with that of the present day. In calculating distances given in early surveys it should be remembered that the surveyors used both the 16' and the 18 foot pole, and that consequently a distance can often only be approximated. It should also be borne in mind that the magnetic north of the latter part of the 17th century varied about 12° west of the true astronomical north used on the recent government maps and on many modern surveys. The references, which are chiefly to the printed volumes of Providence Records, are given merely to show early or suggestive usage of a name. The references to manuscript sources are in most cases self-explanatory. The early manuscripts in the City Hall have been of great service, especially the Fenner Papers and the long series of Providence Town Papers in the office of the Clerk of the Municipal Court, the volumes of deeds and the plat cards in the Deed Office, and the two folio volumes of early Plats of Highways in the custody of the City Clerk. In the library of the Rhode Island Historical Society the Field Papers, the Fenner Papers and the Rhode Island Historical Society Manuscripts have been particularly serviceable. The frequent references to the Harris Papers are to the printed volume. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
