9 editions published between 1933 and 2013 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This tale centers on the March household: mother "Marmee" and her four daughters; Meg, Amy, Beth and Jo, and chronicles this New England family's joys and tribulations during the Civil War. The girls are committed to "showing father proud," father being a minister gone off to meet the spiritual needs of Yankee soldiers at war. Buoyed by their mother, the girls learn the meaning of giving and sacrifice with a jollity that may be off-putting to jaded 21st century viewers, especially when faced with the March girls presenting a "play" in their living room to the delight of invited neighbors and the consternation of one cantankerous but lovable aunt. The girls' placid lives are disrupted when one sibling falls ill, and the story becomes as real as life, at its most joyful and painful

Indiqué sur la jaquette : "Trois journalistes, futurs réalisateurs de KING KONG, vont à la rencontre d'un peuple kurde oublié, les Bakhtiar. Ils l'accompagnent alors dans sa grande migration vers des paturages plus verts de la Perse. La traversée mouvementée d'un large fleuve par les hommes et leurs troupeaux et l'ascension spectaculaire des parois verticales de la montagne font de GRASS un documentaire mythique, estimé par les historiens comme le meilleur après NANOOK."

During World War I a desert patrol loses its leader and is both literally and metaphysically lost, as an unseen (and unreal) Arab enemy picks off the men one by one.

The Most Dangerous Game is a pre-Code action-adventure film.
