Exploring the world. Nevada( Visual )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introduction to the Reno and the Lake Tahoe area begins by exploring the famous ghost town "Virginia City." Located southeast of Reno, this historic mining town was the most important stop between Denver and San Francisco during the silver mining boom in the 1800's. Here we see Piper's Opera House; built in the 1880's, this vintage theater attracted famous actors, singers, and musicians such as Buffalo Bill Cody and the Wild West Review. Also we board the Virginia and Truckee Railroad, once an important short train for moving silver, but today used only as an excursion train that takes tourists into 6 Mile Canyon. Next we head to Gold Hill, population 100; home to the oldest hotel in the state of Nevada, the Gold Hill Hotel. At the Virginia City Mines we learn that in two decades $18 million of gold and silver was mined here, which helped finance the city of San Francisco and the Union during the Civil War. We visit the 4th Ward Schoolhouse, which was built in the 1800's during the mining boom; this architecturally advanced building once accommodated over 1,000 students. Then we visit Sparks, Nevada; named after Governor John Sparks, this city is known for many attractions on Victorian Square and some of the best food is served at The Nugget, a family operation established in 1955. Lastly, we visit Lake Tahoe, which borders California and Nevada; it is the largest alpine lake in North America

Bhutan : the cloud kingdom( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High on the eastern shoulders of the Himalayas, the tallest mountains in the world, sits the independent kingdom known as Bhutan. With its highest point over 24,000 feet, it truly is a kingdom in the clouds. But as filmmaker, Interpretive Field Naturalist, and adventure-lecturer Tom Sterling discovered, Bhutan is a county that is very much down to Earth in its politics, philosophy, and way of life. The adage 'good things come in small packages' certainly applies to this tiny, predominantly Buddhist nation. It is filled with joyful and warm-hearted people who are more concerned with 'Gross National Happiness' than 'Gross National Product'; its extraordinary architecture, such as the Taktsang Monastery, Punaka Dzong, and Gangtey Monastery, reflects a deeply steeped devotion to its Buddhist traditions and heritage; and the country's respect for the environment results in near pristine natural landscapes and a prevalence of remarkable wildlife. More than 70 percent of Bhutan is forested, while sanctuaries and national parks fully protect one quarter of the country. Here, through the eye of an experienced journalist, you view the culture of the 'Land of the Thunder Dragon, ' the legends, the dances, the people; also you will be absorbed in the environment, the mountains and valleys, the trees and plants, the birds and animals. In a world filled with fears of extinction, pollution, crime, and global warming, the lessons we can learn from Bhutan are many

"With mounting public pressure to change the way international development is shaped by agencies like The World Bank, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) was created to fund projects "at the cutting edge of conservation." This documentary examines one such project in southern India, to the USA, where the GEF works from inside The World Bank. We learn the Bengal Tiger is heading for extinction, and villagers claim the GEF project forced them off their land with inadequate compensation. Tempers flare as The World Bank is accused of "treating forests as their fiefdoms." With 2.5 billion dollars to spend The World Bank's green aid unit looks promising on paper. But does it live up to its own rhetoric?"--Container
