More > idea what was in store. At her destination: her elder son, his Chinese wife, a first grandson (whom she'd never met), and a host of Chinese in-laws who spoke no English.

More > power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia.

This collection of 49 poems and essays with cranes expresses Steven Harris’ gift of hope and caring – the same feelings that countless people of all ages and many cultures have discovered... More > upon meeting cranes. Steven’s poems come from a life lived close to cranes. At age six months his mother brought him along while capturing and banding wild Sandhill Cranes. He has since journeyed with both his parents to Hokkaido, Inner Mongolia, and other distant places on behalf of crane conservation. Steven began writing poems at age 13, and this book’s poetry has come together over a five-year period. Much of what Steven expresses feels universal -- what it is to be human and drawn to these tall beings. Yet Steven lives within limits imposed by a severe brain injury at 14 months of age. He cannot talk, walk or even sit unassisted. Recognizing ourselves in his poems, we wonder once again what is truly essential to our human experience.< Less

Storia dei Mongoli By Giovanni da Pian del Carpine
eBook (PDF): $5.47
Sono trascorsi appena tre anni dalla tremenda invasione dell'Orda d'oro nell'Europa centrorientale e ne mancano ancora ventisette al meraviglioso viaggio di Marco Polo, quando papa Innocenzo IV... More > decide di inviare una legazione di frati francescani alla corte degli eredi di Gengis Khan per scongiurare un nuovo flagello mongolo sulla Cristianità. Ha così inizio il lunghissimo e avventuroso viaggio di Giovanni da Pian del Carpine fino a Karakorum, alla corte del Gran Khan Guyuk; due anni e mezzo costellati di spettacoli raccapriccianti, fatiche e stenti, ma anche di racconti e incontri favolosi. Dalle pagine di questa cronaca risuona vivida la voce umile e al tempo risoluta dell'uomo che per primo, e dal vero, ha svelato agli Europei i segreti di quell'estremo oriente per secoli temuto e favoleggiato. Il testo è presentato nella preziosa traduzione dell'umanista veneto Giovan Battista Ramusio. A cura di Daniele Lucchini.< Less
