“Delightful and darkly magical. Julia Fine has written a beautiful modern myth, a coming-of-age story for a girl with a worrisome power over life and death. I loved it.” —Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry In this darkly funny, striking debut, a highly unusual young woman must venture into the woods at the edge of her home to remove a curse that has plagued the women in her family for millennia—an utterly original novel with all the mesmerizing power of The Tiger’s Wife, The Snow Child, and Swamplandia! Cursed. Maisie Cothay has never known the feel of human flesh: born with the power to kill or resurrect at her slightest touch, she has spent her childhood sequestered in her family’s manor at the edge of a mysterious forest. Maisie’s father, an anthropologist who sees her as more experiment than daughter, has warned Maisie not to venture into the wood. Locals talk of men disappearing within, emerging with addled minds and strange stories. What he does not tell Maisie is that for over a millennium her female ancestors have also vanished into the wood, never to emerge—for she is descended from a long line of cursed women. But one day Maisie’s father disappears, and Maisie must venture beyond the walls of her carefully constructed life to find him. Away from her home and the wood for the very first time, she encounters a strange world filled with wonder and deception. Yet the farther she strays, the more the wood calls her home. For only there can Maisie finally reckon with her power and come to understand the wildest parts of herself.

إذا وجِدَ كتاب يستحق أن يقرأه المراهقون وأولياء الأمور (وأي شخص آخر)، فهو هذا الكتاب - صحيفة دنفر بوست. ميلودي، 11 عامًا، تملك ذاكرة مرآتية، ورأسها مثل آلة تصوير سينمائية تسجل طوال الوقت، ولكن لا يوجد فيها زر للحذف؛ كانت أذكى طفلة في مدرستها، ولكن لم يكن أي إنسان يعرف ذلك؛ فقد اعتقد معظم الناس، ومنهم المعلمون والأطباء، أنها غير قادرة على التعلُّم، وكانت أيام المدرسة - حتى وقت قريب - تمر وهي تستمع باستمرار إلى دروس أحرف الهجاء لمستوى الروضة مرة تلو الأخرى؛ تمنَّت لو أنها تستطيع الصراخ... لو أنها تستطيع إخبار من حولها كيف تفكر، وماذا تعرف؛ لكنها لا تستطيع؛ لأنها لا تقدر على الكلام، ولا تستطيع المشي ولا الكتابة. كانت أشياء كثيرة حبيسة في رأسها ولا تستطيع التعبير عنها، وهذا ما كان يسبب لها الجنون - إلى أن اكتشفت شيئًا جعلها تتكلم لأول مرة في حياتها؛ أخيرًا، أصبح لها صوت، لكن لا يوجد أحد ممن حولها يريد سماعه! العبيكان 2017

Applied Ecology And Environmental Management

This book explains ways that ecological science can be applied to solving some of the most crucial problems facing our world today. A major theme is how resources can be effectively managed and exploited in as near a sustainable manner as possible. The author draws together, in a single volume, major topics in environmental and resource management that have traditionally been dispersed among several different books. Applied Ecology starts with an analysis of our planet's basic natural resources - energy, water and soil; it moves on to the management of biological resources - fish, grazing lands and forests, and then to pest control and pollution. Finally, the book tackles conservation and management of wild species and the restoration of ecological communities. The second edition of this text has been radically redesigned and rewritten. Each chapter starts with a list of questions, setting out the various fundamental problems to be considered. Interwoven with these practical problems is a clear explanation of the underlying basic science - ecology - studied at scales ranging from global, landscape and ecosystem, down to the population and individual (and even their physiology and genetics). The science is illustrated by examples from every major geographic area of the world. This book is aimed primarily at undergraduate students taking courses in applied ecology, environmental science, environmental management and natural resources management. The author has extensive experience as a university teacher. Like his lectures, this book is scientifically rigorous yet clear and easy to understand. Draws together major topics in environmental and resource management, usually dispersed over many separate books. Questions, summaries and clearly structured chapters enhance usability. Emphasis on clarity and accessibility. Based on a proven and successful course.

Development And Discontinuity In Jewish Law

In Development and Discontinuity in Jewish Law, Ruth Sandberg analyzes ten biblical commandments and their interpretations in classical and medieval rabbinic sources. These texts reveal that the process of Jewish law is one of both development and discontinuity, in which biblical law can be enlarged upon and expanded, or conversely, be contracted, restricted, or even eliminated entirely. By presenting specific examples from Jewish law and tracing their process from the ancient biblical text to their codification in the sixteenth-century, Sandberg gives the reader an opportunity to see firsthand how Jewish legal texts actually operate and relate to one another.

CATTER LIVES! An improbable classic of rural American literature, AUGURIES is the harrowing tale of fourteen year-old Catter Knopfler, who is removed from his home in the farm town of Vesuvius and institutionalized-until he escapes into the winter city streets, a hunchbacked fugitive in a stolen purple confessional curtain. First offered for publication in 1986 as "an uplifting story of incest, murder, and grotesque suffering," AUGURIES met with a chilling reception. No publisher would touch it. But like its doughty narrator, AUGURIES endured. Photocopied, passed from hand to hand, and advertised only by word of mouth, the rejected typescript of AUGURIES became an almost instant rarity of the American underground press. While reportedly widely pirated abroad in an unauthorized Chinese translation, the corporate-controlled publishing industry in the United States conspired for years to keep AUGURIES off bookstore shelves. By the time CATTER LIVES! began to appear emblazoned on the walls of the New York City subway, AUGURIES had transcended censorship, critical indifference, and its own gnomic title to become a mythic literary phenomenon.
