In 1789, as the Bounty was sailing through the western Pacific Ocean on its return voyage with a cargo of Tahitian plants, disgruntled crewmen seized control of the ship from their captain. The mutineers set their captain and the 18 men who remained loyal to him adrift in one of the ship’s boats, with minimal food supplied and navigational aids, and only four cutlasses for weapons. For the past 225 years, the story of the Bounty's voyage has captured the public's imagination. Two compelling characters emerge at the forefront of the mutiny: Lieutenant William Bligh, and his deputy – and ringleader of the mutiny – Acting Lieutenant Fletcher Christian. One is a villain and the other a hero – who plays each role depends on how you view the story. With multiple narratives and incomplete information, some paint Bligh as tyrannical and abusive, and Christian as his deputy who broke under extreme emotional pressure. Others view Bligh as a victim and a hero, and Christian self-indulgent and underhanded. Alan Frost looks past these common narrative structures to shed new light on what truly happened during the infamous expedition. Reviewing previous accounts and explanations of the voyage and subsequent mutiny, and placing it within a broader historical context, Frost investigates the mayhem, mutiny and mythology of the Bounty.
But don't ask around. We don't want to be connected with her right now when
she's possibly wanted for murder.” Jack couldn't help but notice the frown forming
on Oden's face. “You're not going to turn her in, right?” “Of course not. She's

Just find her. In a city of 3.5 billion. How hard can it be? The answer? Hard. Very hard. In an effort to find her sister’s lost child, Bit flees from the Lenore and returns to her home city, Johannesburg. The search appears over before it even begins when she infuriates a local gang leader. Now, Bit must stay one step ahead of her enemies, while tracking her only remaining family member. Jack and the crew trace Bit back to Earth. Rather than take on another job, the crew seeks her in the deteriorating Johannesburg slums. Attracting their own enemies, both within their crew and from the outside world, the game of cat and mouse has never created more mayhem.
The journey of discovery included kidnappings of Native Americans, killings,
drunkenness and the rumblings of a mutiny (Hudson died during a successful
mutiny on a subsequent voyage in 1611). From there, it only got worse. The

The Hudson Valley is drenched in history, culture and blood. In the fall of 1893, Lizzie Halliday left a trail of bodies in her wake, slaughtering two strangers and her husband before stabbing a nurse to death at the asylum housing her. A Jazz Age politician, tired of fighting with his overbearing wife, murdered her and buried the body under the front porch. In 1882, a cantankerous old miner, dubbed the "Austerlitz Cannibal" by the press, chopped up his partner before he himself swung from the end of a rope. Author Andrew Amelinckx dredges up the Hudson Valley's dark past, from Prohibition-era shootouts to unsolved murders, in eleven heart-pounding true stories.

I have always enjoyed unusual things and in many ways this book displays my passion for strange. We have Yorek, who lived the good life and was struck down in his prime at his 95th birthday party. Barnwick Humbug is every small town's politician, until he converses with his cat, Jasper, for advice. Faith and Calvin were at one time star struck lovers until Calvin found a sex kitten to add to the group, he learns a valuable lesson. Fairy Tales are really quite gory and vicious. The big bad wolf is always coming to town to blow down houses or threaten old ladies. Innocent women are usually the victims as in Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and we must not forget poor Peter's wife stuck in a pumpkin shell. Who do we all find disturbing? That voice that tells us you now have four options. Lydia the grandmother from the past finds help in the future. Six games to play at parties.

Dr. Kevin Baker takes a clear-headed and historical look at civil and military unrest in Australia and New Zealand from the earliest times of European colonisation to the riots at Cronulla in 2005 whose intensity and aftermath took Australia by surprise. In the process he examines many insurrections the best know of which and most notorious - the Rum Rebellion, Vinegar Hill, Eureka - took place in the nineteenth century and relates them to an ongoing, hut diminishing, number of not just tilts at authority, but direct challenges to it.
