Drawing strong comparisons to the work of James Lee Burke and Tony Hillerman, William Kent Krueger’s Cork O’Connor mysteries never fail to please fans. The Quetico-Superior Wilderness: more than two million acres of forest, white-water rapids, and uncharted islands on the Canadian/American border. Somewhere in the heart of this unforgiving territory, a young woman named Shiloh - a country-western singer at the height of her fame - has disappeared. Her father arrives in Aurora, Minnesota, to hire former sheriff Cork O'Connor to find his daughter, and Cork joins a search party that includes an ex-con, two FBI agents, and a 10-year-old boy. Others are on Shiloh's trail as well - men hired not just to find her, but to kill her. As the expedition ventures deeper into the wilderness, strangers descend on Aurora, threatening to spill blood on the town's snowy streets. Meanwhile, out on the Boundary Waters, winter falls hard. Cork's team of searchers loses contact with civilization, and like the brutal winds of a Minnesota blizzard, death - violent and sudden - stalks them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Chandler.

Shadows on the Gulf: A Journey Through Our Last...
9,95 € *

In the spring of 2010, as we watched oil gushing unstoppably into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, many Americans turned their focus to the region for the first time, wondering how this could happen and demanding corporate and government accountability. Yet Rowan Jacobsen brings a surprising perspective to the tragedy: as bad as the spill was, it is only the latest chapter in a century-long story of destruction. At the height of BP's dispersant madness, the amount sprayed each day merely equaled the amount of dispersant that washes down the Mississippi from the Heartland's dishwashers and washing machines. Coastal drilling has damaged the region's ecology far more than offshore drilling. And the acres of marshland ruined by oil slicks can't compare to the amount that disappears in every hurricane, due to the work of the Army Corps of Engineers. Southern Louisiana is subsiding. Even if we succeed in restoring every mile of beach and wetland from the oil spill, the entire Mississippi Delta could be lost this century, and New Orleans will sink beneath the waves, an American Atlantis.Surveying the Gulf Coast by sailboat, skiff, car, and kayak, Jacobsen journeys from the bayous of Terrebonne Parish, where he goes on oil patrol with a Native American man whose tribe is being displaced as their island disintegrates; to the last shucking house in New Orleans's French Quarter, whose oyster supply has vanished; to the pristine barrier islands of Mississippi, where a Kafkaesque cleanup effort is underway. He discovers a little-appreciated ecological wonder of breathtaking natural beauty and rich culture struggling to hold on to the things that have always sustained it.Shadows on the Gulf details the catastrophe creeping across the region and reveals why the damage to the Gulf will affect us all. Not only are the Gulf's wetlands the best oyster reefs and fish nurseries in the world, they also provide critical habitat to most of America's migratory songb 1. Language: English.

Selat Pandan
34,00 € *

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Selat Pandan (or Pandan Strait) is a strait south of Singapore's main island. It separates the man-made Jurong Island from the Southern Islands. It has a depth of approximately 15 m. The strait was affected by the Natuna Sea oil spill in October 2000. Pulau Ujong (Malay: literally 'island at the end [of the peninsula]') or Singapore Island is the main island of the island country of Singapore. It forms the majority of the island country in terms of area and population. It was the easiest reference to the Singapore Island as anyone travelling from the Straits of Malacca to the South China Sea or vice versa would have to pass the island, hence giving it the name. Like Johor's old name, ujong tanah meaning "Land's End", the island was known better by the Orang laut as Pulau Ujong literally meaning "End Island". The early Chinese reference to P'u Luo Chung corresponds to the Malay reference known as Pualau Juong. In the 18th century, the island was known as Pulau Panjang (Long Island).

NEPCO 140 Oil Spill

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. On June 23, 1976, the tugboat Eileen C was pushing the NEPCO 140 barge filled with crude oil when it ran aground in the American Narrows off Wellesley Island in the Thousand Islands region. The Captain had not made a large enough adjustment to his course when realizing the vessel was off track in the thick fog. Upon running aground, the barge ruptured two tanks and began leaking oil. It then backed off the rock and resumied its upriver journey. The barge again ran aground four miles further upriver and ruptured another tank on a shoal near Mason Point while trying to set anchor per the U.S. Coast Guard''s orders. The barge leaked oil into the River for more than a day. The spill was carried over an 80-mile section of the St. Lawrence River by the river''s swift current. As far downriver as Massena, New York and Brockville, Ontario. Shoreline, wildlife, rocks, and boats were covered with oil. Oil penetrated into extensive marshland areas. At the time of the accident the spill was the worst inland oil spill in North American history.
