Wuthering Heights By EMILY BRONTË
eBook (ePub): $2.99
EMILY BRONTË Wuthering Heights "That chainless soul," Emily Jane Brontë, was born at Thornton, Yorkshire, England, on August 30, 1818, and died at Haworth on December 19, 1848.... More > She will always have a place in English literature by reason of her one weird, powerful, strained novel, "Wuthering Heights," and a few poems. Emily Brontë, like her sister Charlotte, was educated at Cowan School and at Brussels. For a time she became a governess, but it seemed impossible for her to live away from the fascination of the Yorkshire moors, and she went home to keep house at the Haworth Parsonage, while her sisters taught. Two months after the publication of "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte, that is, in December, 1847, "Wuthering Heights," by Emily, and "Agnes Grey," by Anne, the third sister in this remarkable trio, were issued in one volume. The critics, who did not discover these books were by women, suggested persistently that "Wuthering Heights" must be an immature work by Currer Bell (Charlotte).< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
The book paints a picture of air force life in the 40s, 50s & 60s, including the period when the Cold War nearly became the opposite. "One of the Wellingtons had begun an overshoot, but as... More > the engines reached full power the nose had shot skywards, the aircraft had climbed for a moment then stall-turned into the ground and burned. As they started the overshoot, the instructor had taken the backthrust from the elevators, and his backrest had broken away under the strain, sending him over backwards, still holding the wheel. That was all that it had taken to kill three men." "A manoeuvre to practise in the simulator was the escape. They would need to be five miles away at bomb-burst and running away from the pressure wave but some had not thought it through. Survival required an instant tight, diving turn while closing the bomb doors and pushing the aircraft to its limiting speed. Less imaginative captains would ask how far away they were at bomb-burst and I would reply “Three-quarters of a mile.”< Less
