A cloud floated slowly above the mountain peak. Vast, fleecy and white as the crested foam of a sea-wave, it sailed through the sky with a divine air of majesty, seeming almost to express a... More > consciousness of its own grandeur. Over a spacious tract of Southern California it extended its snowy canopy, moving from the distant Pacific Ocean across the heights of the Sierra Madre, now and then catching fire at its extreme edge from the sinking sun, which burned like a red brand flung on the roof of a roughly built hut situated on the side of a sloping hollow in one of the smaller hills. The door of the hut stood open; there were a couple of benches on the burnt grass outside, one serving as a table, the other as a chair. Papers and books were neatly piled on the table,--and on the chair, if chair it might be called, a man sat reading. His appearance was not prepossessing at a first glance, though his actual features could hardly be seen, so concealed were they by a heavy growth of beard....< Less

The Tribulations of a Chinaman in China By Jules Verne
Paperback: $14.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
This delightful story is one of Verne's foreign tales. In all likelihood he never set foot anywhere near the places he writes about, but his background research seems impeccable. Unlike some others,... More > this is not a travel piece as much as it is the story of a moderately rich Chinese man, in China, arranging his own death so that he can give the love of his life as well as a philosopher some money. His hope it will make them happy. Along the way he sets out of some travels where he inevitably finds that there might just be a good reason to live after all. And then he and his companions find themselves floating in the middle of the sea, with a hungry shark coming at them. There is little hope for them… Please note that Verne tries to not be insensitive about another culture, but somewhere in the translations a bit of that shows through. Also, spellings of far-away places back in the 1800s was a little odd. Sound some of them out and you will have no troubles.< Less
