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 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.

Was it because they were subconsciously trying to kill the drunken, violent man that was their father that brothers Luke Karamazov and Tommy Searl from Kalamazoo became serial murderers? Addressing this and other questions, author Conrad Hilberry presents an unusually vivid and detailed portrait of two contrasting psychological types in this account. In 1964, Luke confessed to a five-week murder spree in which he killed five men. Tommy was convicted of the rape and murder of four women in 1972. Hilberry investigates the relationship between the brothers, as well as their feelings about their parents, about the prison staff, and about the woman who has been married to each of them. With the drama of fiction, the resulting story is bizarre, somewhat grisly, but always psychologically revealing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John N. Gully.

Unlike much of the rest of Maine, which is famous for its rock-bound coast, the South Coast is best characterized by its long, flat, sandy beaches. Great swimming and sunning begins in Kittery, just across the border from New Hampshire, and continues north up the coast through York, Ogunquit, Well, Kennebunk, Biddeford, and Old Orchard. But the South Coast is more than just beaches. There are scores of picturesque harbors, quaint shops, cozy inns, and bed and breakfasts. Portland, Maine´s largest city, reigns over the region. Its famous Old Port section, characterized by gas-lit cobblestone streets, now bustles with trendy shops and charming restaurants and bars. To the northwest is one of Maine´s premier freshwater playgrounds, Sebago Lake. The towns that surround it boast long, proud histories predating the Revolutionary War and are themselves the gateway to New Hampshire´s lofty White Mountains. At the northeastern end of this region lies Freeport, home to L.L. Bean and dozens of other outlet and factory stores. Still, the South Coast has plenty to offer those who seek to cast off the cloak of civilization. From nature centers, bird sanctuaries, and state parks in Scarborough, to the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge in Kennebunk to Bradbury Mountain State Park in Pownal, escape from the hustle and bustle is only minutes away. Here´s the most detailed guide to the region. Earl Brechlin is a registered Maine Guide and a resident of Bar Harbor. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Georato.
