Quest For Fire

by J. H. Rosny, Quest For Fire Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Quest For Fire book, Quest for Fire, written by J. H. Rosny aîné, was originally published in France in 1911 as La Guerre du Feu (The War of Fire). It has been translated into eleven languages and was made into a major motion picture in 1981 by Jean-Jacques Annaud. Quest for Fire is Rosny's best loved work. It is a classic example of the "Hero's Journey," and we are enthralled as Naoh, a Neanderthal warrior, leads a small band of brothers into dangerous lands to capture a strange, powerful and beloved beast: The Fire. Facing one crisis after another, Naoh returns exalted and transformed-a true hero to his People. The accompanying Afterward delves into the science behind the story and provides notes on this new translation, the first in over 50 years.

Quests For Fire

by , Quests For Fire Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Quests For Fire book, It is hard to imagine life without fire. Heat, light, food—where would we be without these essentials? Although we do not rely on fire as much today as in times past, nor have as much direct contact with it, fire was often crucial to survival when the stories in this collection were first told. People often told stories about it: what their lives were like without fire, how they first acquired it and how it changed their lives. This collection of nine traditional tales, retold by Jon C. Stott, draws from eight different countries. Learn how Maui stole fire twice (New Zealand), how Coyote and his friends captured fire (United States), how Opossum brought fire back to the people (Mexico) and how Vasilisa used the Baba Yaga’s fire (Russia). The main characters of these stories differ in many aspects. Some are well-known heroes, and some are insignificant members of their groups. Some made their quests for fire alone, and some worked with others. Some were brave and unselfish, and some sought personal glory. But all knew that fire was essential for their people.

Prehistoric Humans In Film And Television

by Michael Klossner, Prehistoric Humans In Film And Television Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Prehistoric Humans In Film And Television book, From the early days of the movies, “cavemen” have been a popular subject for filmmakers—not surprisingly, since the birth of cinema occurred only a few decades after the earliest scientific studies of prehistoric man. Filmmakers, however, were not constrained by the emerging science; instead they most often took a comedic look at prehistory, a trend that continued throughout the 20th century. Prehistoric humans also populated adventure-fantasy films, with the original One Million B.C. (1940) leading the charge. Documentaries were also made, but it was not until the 1970s that accurate film accounts of prehistoric humans finally emerged. This exhaustive work provides detailed accounts of 581 film and television productions that feature depictions of human prehistory. Included are dramas and comedies set in human prehistory; documentaries; and films and television shows in which prehistoric people somehow exist in historical periods—from the advent of civilization up to the present—or in extraterrestrial settings. Each entry includes full filmographic data, including year of release, running time, production personnel, cast information, and format. A description of each film provides background on the prehistoric elements. Contemporary critical commentary is included for many of the works.

Pilton Keelie

by James Meikle, Pilton Keelie Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Pilton Keelie book, Is it better to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth or a hunger in your belly? Is life in the city better than life in the country? Is life in the new world really better than life in old Europe? Is private education better than public? Is a university degree compulsory to success in life?. What exactly is a better life? Affluence does not guarantee happiness and poverty does not guarantee misery and regardless of inherent socio-economic standing a kind or cruel bounce at the right or wrong moment can be life-changing. Strong parental love and guidance ultimately trump actual money but the latter does make further education more readily available and that generally opens up more opportunities in the modern world. My wife and I had no post-secondary education and loved our upbringing yet we strived very hard to make sure our children did have university degrees and a shot at that ‘better’ life. I hope the joyful if sometimes embarrassing memoirs of a Scottish working class boy, combined with a good deal of social history and the many quirks of the common language which my native and adopted countries allegedly share, can amuse and inform.

Fire

by Stephen J. Pyne, Fire Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Fire book, "The fate of humanity, like the fate of the earth, is tied to the fires that have made the world as we know it�the fires whose history is told as well in this book as it has ever been told before. If one wants to understand just how completely the story of the human past is also the story of fire on earth, there is no better place to start than this small book."�William Cronon Here, in one concise book, is the essential story of fire. Noted environmental historian Stephen J. Pyne describes the evolution of fire through prehistoric and historic times down to the present, examining contemporary attitudes from a long-range, informed perspective. Fire: A Brief History surveys the principles behind aboriginal and agricultural fire practices, the characteristics of urban fire, and the relationship between controlled combustion and technology. Pyne describes how fire�s role in cities, suburbs, exurbs, and wildlands has been shaped by an industrialized, urban way of thinking. Fire: A Brief History will be of value to readers interested in the environment from the standpoint of anthropology, geography, forestry, science and technology, history, or the humanities.
