The wandering lake by Sven Anders Hedin( Book )

9 editions published between 1940 and 1988 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lake of Lop Nur, the "Heart of the heart of Asia," is one of the world's strangest phenomena. Situated in the wild Chinese province of Xinjiang, Lop Nur - "The wandering lake"--Has for millennia been in a perpetual state of flux, drifting north to south, often tens of kilometres in as many years. It was once the lifeblood of the great Silk Road kingdom of Loulan, which flourished in this otherwise barren region 2,000 years ago and its peculiar movements confused even Ptolemy, who marked the lake twice on his map of Asia. Sven Hedin became captivated by the Lop Nur's peripatetic movements and for forty years his destiny was inextricably linked with that of this mysterious lake and the region surrounding it. His last journey to Lop Nur was in 1934. Travelling the length of the Konche-daria and Kum-daria rivers by canoe, Hedin embarked on his last Central Asian expedition and proved what he had always suspected - that Lop Nur did indeed shift position - and why. When he camped on its vast banks at night, Lop Nur was deep and full. Today, this once great lake - a a mighty reservoir in the desert - is nothing but windblown sand and salty marsh. The third in Sven Hedin's Central Asia trilogy, The Wandering Lake is a gripping story of adventure and discovery but it is also a rare account of a now-vanished world; a masterpiece by one of history's last great explorers
Kon-Tiki: across the Pacific by raft by Thor Heyerdahl( Book )

47 editions published between 1948 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kon-Tiki is the record of an astonishing adventure -- a journey of 4,300 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean by raft. Intrigued by Polynesian folklore, biologist Thor Heyerdahl suspected that the South Sea Islands had been settled by an ancient race from thousands of miles to the east, led by a mythical hero, Kon-Tiki. He decided to prove his theory by duplicating the legendary voyage. On April 28, 1947, Heyerdahl and five other adventurers sailed from Peru on a balsa log raft. After three months on the open sea, encountering raging storms, whales, and sharks, they sighted land -- the Polynesian island of Puka Puka. Translated into sixty-five languages, Kon-Tiki is a classic, inspiring tale of daring and courage -- a magnificent saga of men against the sea"--Page 4 of cover

Fräulein Else; a novel by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Schnitzlers berühmter Monolog über das junge Fräulein Else. Vor der grandiosen Kulisse des Monte Cimino spielt das Drama um Else, die durch ein Telegramm ihrer Mama jäh aus ihrer großbürgerlichen Welt katapultiert wir, eh sie selber noch ihren Platz darin gefunden hat. Arthur Schnitzler hat mit dem Leutnant Gustl den Inneren Monolog in die deutschsprachige Literatur gebracht. In Fräulein Else führt er dies Prinzip weiter. Wir erleben die letzten Stunden der neunzehnjährigen Else durch ihre eigenen Augen. Es zeigt die übersteigerte Schamhaftigkeit eines jungen Mädchens an der Schwelle zum Frausein. Tief zerrissen zwischen den Erwartungen, die ein Aufwachsen im großbürgerlichen Millieu Wiens in ihr erzeugt hat und der bitter-profanen Realität, die ihr Mündelgelder veruntreuender Vater ihr beschert, weiß Else zuletzt keinen Ausweg. Die Lesung stammt von Vanida Karun, die mit ihrer ungewöhnlichen Stimme Fräulein Else ganz neue Nuancen abgewinnt. Die Hamburger Theater, und Fernsehschauspielerin hat schon diverse Hörbücher eingelesen, zuletzt "Lust auf Lust" von Renske de Greef
