The New World

The New World

Author: Andrew Motion Format: Hardback Release Date: 09/10/2014

Jim and Natty are shipwrecked on the coast of Texas, blown off course on their way home from Treasure Island. But they have stolen something they should have left well alone, something that will haunt them until what was taken has been returned...On their journey they encounter Native American tribes, a wandering group of European Circus performers, deracinated warriors, eccentric pioneers, some landscapes of great serenity and others of terrible savagery, until, at last, they reach the mighty Mississippi. The New World is an adventure story, a race across America, a Western, a travelogue, a love story and a lament for an indigenous culture in the years before its destruction. Andrew Motion has achieved that singular thing - a story that is both very moving and very exciting, and always written with a remarkable clear beauty.

Silver

Author: Andrew Motion Format: eBook Release Date: 04/07/2014

Juli 1802: Am Nordufer der Themse, unweit von London, liegt das Hispaniola, ein Wirtshaus, das von Jim Hawkins und seinem Sohn gefuhrt wird. Jim junior unternimmt oft einsame Streifzuge durch die nebelverhangene Marschlandschaft; ansonsten muss er nach der Pfeife seines Vaters tanzen und im Schankraum der Kneipe den immergleichen Geschichten lauschen: von Abenteuern auf hoher See, von Mord, Rache, vergrabenen Schatzen - und von einem Mann mit einem Holzbein. Eines Sptabends taucht ein Mdchen bei Jim auf, Natty, mit einer Botschaft ihres Vaters - Long John Silver. Der alters-, aber keineswegs willensschwache Pirat hat einen Plan: Jim und Natty sollen gemeinsam zur Schatzinsel aufbrechen und den Silberschatz bergen, der vor vielen Jahren dort zurckgelassen werden musste. Wenig spter stechen Jim und Natty in See, genau wie einst ihre Vter. Whrend der Reise wachsen nicht nur ihre Gefhle freinander, sondern auch die Ahnung, dass das eigentliche Abenteuer noch vor ihnen liegt. Und sie haben recht: Als die "e;Nightingale"e; ihr Ziel erreicht, weicht die Aufregung um den versteckten Schatz ungeahntem Schrecken. Denn die Schatzinsel ist nicht mehr so menschenleer, wie sie einmal war...
