Review of Detailed Project Report for Rejuvenation and Conservation of Jait Sagar Lake: Prachi Singh
Hannibal is often considered the finest general the world has ever known. Setting out from Carthaginian-dominated Spain with a small army of select troops, he fought his way over the Pyrenees and crossed the Alps with elephants and a full baggage train. Descending into Italy, he destroyed the main Roman army at Lake Trasimeno and came close to conquering Rome itself. At Cannae, Hannibal’s brilliant cavalry tactics enabled him to destroy a reassembled Roman army, and his subsequent defeats over a 15-year stay in Italy were due more to lack of sufficient support from home than to any failings of generalship. Theodore Ayrault Dodge’s classic history, first published in 1891, is equally perceptive of Hannibal’s military prowess and his visionary character. Dodge followed Hannibal’s route from Carthage to Italy, paying particular attention to the famous crossing of the Alps, exploring every pass in order to determine Hannibal’s route. In this book, he wrote an entire history of the art of war among these two mighty armies. Hannibal remains unequaled as the most comprehensive and readable study of history’s greatest general. 1.

This book provides a comprehensive, updated syntheses of all the information available on Mar Chiquita, covering various aspects of the geography, geological history, biology and ecology of the site, as well as a detailed analysis of the current land-use patterns, environmental threats, and conservation issues. Mar Chiquita, located in the province of Cordoba, Argentina, is a protected wilderness area that includes South America´s largest saline lake and wetland. It has a very rich bird biodiversity, including three of the six species of flamingos that exist in the world, and high numbers of intercontinental migratory shorebirds. For this reason, the area has been declared an International Site by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, and also a Site of Hemispheric Importance by the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserves Network. Largely unknown until very recently, particularly in terms of the English literature, the site is rapidly gaining international visibility, not only in terms of scientific research, but also as site of interest for the nature lovers around the globe. Written in a language accessible to the non-specialists, the book focuses on integrating the dynamic, functional processes in the ecosystem, while at the same time providing the necessary descriptive information. Accordingly, it is of interest to scientists from diverse disciplines interested in saline wetlands, as well as to students, managers, and the general public.
This guide, drawn from our complete guide to the Sierra Nevada, focuses on Tahoe, Reno, Carson City, Virginia City and their surroundings. Between Mt. Whitney and Lake Tahoe is the true Sierra Nevada, a land of granite, glacial ice and alpine lakes. Here you will find forests of giant sequoias, wildflowered meadows and steep V-shaped river canyons. You´ll read about the local history and get basic travel information, from contact numbers and addresses for tourism bureaus and outfitters to airlines and rental cars. You´ll discover the towns and attractions, including the best lodging and dining spots. The adventure sections are packed with detailed advice on how to explore the region on foot, on horseback, on water, on wheels and on snow. Carson City is Nevada´s state capital. The city was named after the famous scout, Kit Carson, who explored much of this area. And then there is Virginia City, which has been restored to its former boomtown appearance, once the domain of Bret Harte and Mark Twain. By 1859, thousands of miners still sought gold in western areas where the metal could be retrieved from streams or hillsides. But the gold was playing out in most places and miners were desperate to find new sources. Miners had long complained about a troublesome blue sand that clogged their rockers and which they discarded. That worthless ´´blue stuff´´ turned out to be rich in silver and gold as well, and worth a fortune. Today the strike is known as the Comstock Lode. This guide tells you about it all, with color photos throughout. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ted Warren. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/019863/bk_acx0_019863_sample.mp3.

Utah is home to canyons and mountains, desert and abundant waterways, thriving cities. The setting for novels by Zane Gray and Edward Abbey, film characters Thelma and Louise and Butch Cassidy, Utah has harsh country for individualists and tamer areas for the meeker at heart. The Beehive State (so called because of the industriousness of its residents) is the geological crossroads of the elevated tableland known as the Colorado Plateau, the western slope of the Rocky Mountains and the Great Basin, the huge expanse of land cradled between the Sierra Nevada and Wasatch mountain ranges. The state boasts six national monuments, five national parks, countless wilderness areas and thousands of additional acres of public lands accessible for hiking, biking, skiing, rafting, fishing, and much more. Needless to say, these natural spaces provide one of the greatest year-round concentrations of adventurous pastimes. The preponderance of rugged, virtually primeval terrain lends itself naturally to high adventure. Furthermore, the territory has long been pre-eminent in the pantheon of spiritual places to the native peoples who were first to settle here, and whose ancient mysteries and modern presence are keenly felt today. If you want to experience the special nature of this exceptional area, and to get out and do things, this audiobook is for you. It provides all the nuts-and-bolts information you need to plan and accomplish an informed trip, as well as specific details on a variety of adventures. Ride a horse for a day, raft through rapids the next. Climb mountains for a week and know all the best fishing spots in advance. This guide covers it all, focusing on Northern Utah (see our Southern Utah guide for the other half!). Plus the best places to stay and eat are detailed, as well as the touring information you need, plus the adventure - on foot, on wheels, on snow, on horseback, in the air... everything you need to make your trip unforgettable. 1.
