Alfred Russel Wallace : a life by Peter Raby( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography of Wallace traces the development of one of the most remarkable scientific travelers, naturalists, and thinkers of the nineteenth century. Peter Raby reveals his subject as a courageous, unconventional explorer and a man of exceptional humanity. He draws more extensively on Wallace's correspondence than has any previous biographer and offers a revealing yet balanced account of the relationship between Wallace and Darwin. Wallace lacked Darwin's advantages. A largely self-educated native of Wales, he spent four years in the Amazon in his mid-twenties collecting specimens for museums and wealthy patrons, only to lose his finds in a shipboard fire in the mid-Atlantic. He vowed never to travel again. Yet two years later he was off to the East Indies on a vast eight-year trek where he discovered countless species and identified the point of divide between Asian and Australian fauna, 'Wallace's Line.' After his return, he plunged into numerous controversies and published regularly until his death at the age of ninety, in 1913. He penned a classic volume on his travels, founded the discipline of biogeography, promoted natural selection, and produced a distinctive account of mind and consciousness in man
The floating egg : episodes in the making of geology by Roger Osborne( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couverture indique : "" - Etant donné, Dr Buckland, qu'il s'agit là d'ossements tropicaux, et que nous habitons un pays du Nord, il semble évident que ces vestiges furent transportés vers nos latitudes par les flots du Déluge universel. - Alors vous méritez d'amples félicitations, Dr Young. - C'est très aimable à vous. J'en déduis que vous êtes pleinement d'accord avec mon interprétation des faits? - Quelques détails m'amènent à douter de cette conclusion." Et voilà le célèbre et charismatique géologue William Buckland, menant une enquête magistrale sur l'origine des ossements improbables de Kirkdale. Mais aussi William Smith, l'ingénieur qui découpait l'Angleterre pour creuser des canaux, et découvrit par quel jeu subtil - et fossile - histoire de la vie et histoire de la Terre se répondent. Mais voilà encore ces falaises de schiste, d'où une industrie minière va faire s'échapper des hôtes spectaculaires. Ou cette météorite, frappant le champ d'un dandy et dévastant des siècles de certitudes. Autant d'épisodes extraordinaires et truculents, tous survenus depuis le XVIIe siècle dans une petite partie du Yorkshire, et faussement indépendants car une lame de fond les traverse, bouleversant notre perception du monde, et dont naîtra une science: la géologie."

Jr. and Summer, have reason to believe there's a connection here somewhere, but they also know they have very little time to find it before events escalate out of control. Their only real clue might just be a mysterious silvery mineral traced to a long-ago expedition in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. But no one survived from that doomed mission, captain and crew perished to a man--and if Pitt and his colleague Al Giordino aren't careful, the very same fate may await them
