Rudyard Kipling's classic tale (first published in The Jungle Book, and considered by many to be the best of those stories) details the fearless exploits of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a young mongoose whom misadventure had fortuitously brought to live at the bungalow of an expatriate British family in India. Rikki Tikki through great presence of mind, fortitude, and simply by being a mongoose saves the family from the murderous intent of two cobras. A great tale from long ago, but still exciting today. Masterfully narrated by the quintessentially English Phillip J. Mather. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phillip J. Mather.

God doesn't want to be merely a weekend getaway. He has no interest in being a Sunday bungalow or even a summer cottage. He wants to be your mailing address, your point of reference, your home always. He wants you to live in the Great House of God. Using the Lord's Prayer as a floor plan, Max Lucado takes you on a tour of the home God intended for you. Warm your heart by the fire in the living room. Nourish your spirit in the kitchen. Seek fellowship in the family room. Step into the hallway and find forgiveness. It's the perfect home for you. After all, it was created with you in mind. There's only one home built just for your heart. No house more complete, no structure more solid. In God's house, you're home. So come into the house built just for you. Your Father is waiting. 1.

"The Phantom 'Rickshaw and Other Tales" is a collection of ghostly short stories by the well-known English novelist Rudyard Kipling. Kipling, born in India, is revered for his honest portrayal of India's people, culture, and religion throughout his work. "The Phantom 'Rickshaw and Other Tales" features five short stories, each one packed with irony, good humor, mystery, and an interesting twist. In "The Phantom 'Rickshaw," the narrator Jack continuously sees Mrs. Wessington, his old flame, appear in his life even after he becomes engaged to Miss Mannering. In "My Own True Ghost Story," the narrator hears a group of doolie-bearers playing billiards in his bungalow, but when he complains the next morning, he finds there were none. "The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes" is a story where an Englishman finds himself in a village of the living dead. However, one of Kipling's most renown tales, "The Man Who Would Be King," features a regular man who is made an illusionary king, built upon ideals and lies. Kipling's supernatural stories are a great read for children and adults alike with a curiosity for the unknown and unexplained.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE 2017'When I finished Sara Baume's new novel I immediately felt sad that I could not send it in the post to the late John Berger. He, too, would have loved it and found great joy in its honesty, its agility, its beauty, its invention. Baume is a writer of outstanding grace and style. She writes beyond the time we live in.' Colum McCann Struggling to cope with urban life - and with life in general - Frankie, a twenty-something artist, retreats to the rural bungalow on 'turbine hill' that has been vacant since her grandmother's death three years earlier. It is in this space, surrounded by nature, that she hopes to regain her footing in art and life. She spends her days pretending to read, half-listening to the radio, failing to muster the energy needed to leave the safety of her haven. Her family come and go, until they don't and she is left alone to contemplate the path that led her here, and the smell of the carpet that started it all. Finding little comfort in human interaction, Frankie turns her camera lens on the natural world and its reassuring cycle of life and death. What emerges is a profound meditation on the interconnectedness of wilderness, art and individual experience, and a powerful exploration of human frailty.

The Unexpected Heiress: A Nick Williams Mystery...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Nick Williams, heir to a vast fortune, lives with his lover, Carter Jones, in the Eureka Valley neighborhood of San Francisco in an unassuming bungalow. Little do the neighborhood ladies, who do their daily marketing on Castro Street, know that just down the street their neighbor is the richest homosexual since possibly Alexander the Great.  His no-nonsense secretary Marnie Wilson keeps things together at the office in the Tenderloin. To her frustration, Nick is always turning away clients. He doesn't really need the money, after all.  In The Unexpected Heiress, Nick is called in to see his lawyer and friend, Jeffrey Klein, whose mystery client, under contract to Metro, was just arrested at the Kit Kat Club on Polk Street but somehow got off with a bench warrant. Jeffrey wants to know who in the police department worked things behind the scene for the star of the upcoming blockbuster It Was Raining Then.  Meanwhile a late night phone call from his estranged father sends Nick into a tailspin and a family secret, along with a lot of other things better kept hush-hush, are all splashed on the front pages of the daily newspapers. It ain't pretty.  In the end, for Nick and Carter, it's actually the beginning of a whole new way of doing business.  Long before the Summer of Love, pride parades down Market Street, and the fight for marriage equality, San Francisco in 1953 was all about the Red Scare, F.B.I. investigations, yellow journalism run amok, and the ladies who play mah jong over tea. 1.

best of DETAIL: Einfamilienhäuser/Single-Family...
49,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Despite a growing trend towards sharing, and an increasing number of single family households combined with a growing need for flexibility, the individual single family home remains an extremely popular choice. In addition to following building guidelines, private single family homes are also expected to fulfil high standards when it comes to energy, and often cost efficiency. Nevertheless, they continue to provide considerable scope for architects and designers. Best of DETAIL: Single-Family Homes brings together a collection of relevant highlights from DETAIL. The publication is made up of theoretical articles and a comprehensive section containing examples of projects which provide unique insights into the various applications of wood, concrete or masonry in a range of passive houses, bungalows, double- and semi-detached houses, and villas with swimming pools, from the simple to the luxurious. What these projects have in common is an ambitious aesthetic quality, which can be summed up as good architecture, providing readers with a great deal of inspiration and constructive solutions for their own practice.Trotz "Sharing"-Trends, zunehmender Anzahl von Singlehaushalten und steigendem Bedarf an Flexibilität, ist das individuelle Einfamilienhaus nach wie vor eine sehr beliebte Wohnform. Neben baurechtlichen Vorgaben müssen private Einfamilienhäuser hohe Anforderungen an Energie-, meist auch an Kosteneffizienz erfüllen - und bieten dennoch nach wie vor viel individuellen Gestaltungsspielraum für Architekten und Bauherren.Best of DETAIL: Einfamilienhäuser bündelt die Highlights zu diesem Thema aus DETAIL. Die Publikation beinhaltet neben theoretischen Fachbeiträgen einen ausführlichen Projektbeispielteil, der einzigartige Einblicke bietet in die unterschiedlichsten Realisierungen aus Holz, Beton oder Mauerwerk, als Passivhaus oder Bungalow, Doppel-, Reihenhaus oder Villa mit Swimmingpool, von einfach bis luxuriös. Gemeinsam ist allen die anspruchsvolle ästhetische Qualität, kurz: gute Architektur, die eine Menge Inspirationen und konstruktive Lösungsbeispiele für die eigene Praxis liefert.
