Gold: Its Geological Occurrence and Geographical Distribution
James Malcolm Maclaren
This is an EXACT reproduction of a book published before 1923. This IS NOT an OCR'd book with strange characters, introduced typographical errors, and jumbled words. This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process. We believe this work is culturally important, and despite the imperfections, ...
An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge - Ambrose Bierce
A man stood upon a railroad bridge in northern Alabama, looking down into the swift water twenty feet below. The man's hands were behind his back, the wrists bound with a cord. A rope closely encircled his neck. It was attached to a stout cross-timber above his head and the slack feel to the level of his knees. Some loose boards laid upon the ties supporting the rails of the railway supplied a footing for him and his executioners -- two private ...
Unexplained!: 347 Strange Sightings, Incredible Occurrences, and Puzzling Physical Phenomena
Diane Pub Co
THE Compendium of Strange Phenomena
I have many of these types of books in my collection, from small paperbacks to fancier hardcover Reader's Digest-type compendiums, from Rupert J. Gould's _Oddities_ to works by William Corliss and Brad Steiger - themselves no hack journalists of the unexplained - and none of them hold a candle to the sheer pragmatic necessity of this book. An avid cryptozoologist might note, for example, his ...
Petroleum formation and occurrence: A new approach to oil and gas exploration
B. P Tissot
Current and authoritative with many advanced concepts for petroleum geologists, geochemists, geophysicists, or engineers engaged in the search for or production of crude oil and natural gas, or interested in their habitats and the factors that control them, this book is an excellent reference. It is recommended without reservation. AAPG Bulletin.
An Unfortunate Prairie Occurrence
A Fantastically Entertaining Read
I live in England and have no idea how I first came across this book apart from the fact I bought it from Amazon! But am I so glad that I took the plunge and ordered it. I have not enjoyed a mystery novel as much as this one in a very long time. The plot twists and turns with as many potential murderers as stars in the sky. Combine this with a wonderfully laconic sheriff, Jules Clement, ...
An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge (Forgotten Books)
Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce
A wonderful short from 1870's
The first classical suspense, twlight zone story first written over 100 years ago. A quick page turner, excellent. The book could be found at local friends of library book sales. Be careful of buying it online. The normal sale price is $1, and online sells it for between $5 and $7.
Energy Resources: Occurrence, Production, Conversion, Use
Wendell H. Wiser
I get this feeling...
that this author was either funded by or worked for the fossil fuel industry. I'll get to that after I go over what I liked about the book. There is a lot of information about the spectrum of energy production in the US. The topics include (I'll just list the chapter titles) 1. Energy Concepts, Forms, Laws 2. Petroleum 3. Natural Gas 4. Coal 5. Gaseous and Liquid Fuels from Coal 6. ...
A Brief History of Panics and Their Periodical Occurrence in the United States
General Books LLC
Kindle Version is a Mess!!
The Kindle version of this book is almost unreadable in parts. The tables that apparently exist in the original arrive on the Kindle unformatted and makes no sense whatsoever... just a string of numbers. It was free so I gave it two stars instead of one.
The Nightwatchman's Occurrence Book: And Other Comic Inventions
Three for one...
This volume is actually three books in one: The Suffrage of Elvira (1961), Mr. Stone and the Knights Companion (1963), and A Flag on the Island (1967), the first two are novels and the last a collection of short stories culminating in the title novella. The Suffrage of Elvira was the second novel published by Mr. Naipaul, and although it is a pleasant diversion, it lacks the impact of his later ...
Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis: Modeling Change and Event Occurrence
Judith D. Singer
John B. Willett
Oxford University Press, USA
This book is very complex, which may scare some people off. However, the information is incredible and very in-depth. I think the strength of this book lies in its concrete examples of different sets of longitudinal data. The authors slowly take you through each step and you eventually come to anticipate which step they are going to take next. The in-depth discussion of the multilevel model of ...
Occupancy Estimation and Modeling: Inferring Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurrence
Darryl I. MacKenzie
James D. Nichols
Robust Wildlife Species Distribution Modeling Tool
This book gathers the most recent improvements for wildlife species presence absence models, a recurrent problem in ecology research. In a brilliant way, MacKenzie and his co-authors present the results of their last papers and discuss in a didatic manner the applications of simple improvements in statistical models that make them more than usefull for field ecologists, decision makers and others ...

The Squatter and the Don; A Novel Descriptive of Contemporary Occurrences in California
General Books LLC
Great Critical Introduction by Rosaura Sánchez and Beatrice Pita
The Recovery Project of Arte Públio Press was instrumental in our contemporary knowledge of this book. Though published in 1885, the text had not been acknowledged. Sánchez's and Pita's introduction is very detailed, and provides a lot of contextual information that the Modern Library edition does not provide. Arte Público Press is the greatest publisher of US Latino literature, and the Press ...
Epidemiologic Methods: Studying the Occurrence of Illness
Oxford University Press, USA, 2002
This book was included as required reading for my graduate level epidemiology course. I borrowed the book from a friend as a reference during the course but it is so excellent that I now am purchasing it to have. The targeted chapters on case-control studies, RCTs, cohort studies and ecologic studies are all excellent. The examples drive home the points as do the questions at the end of the ...
Unexplained: Strange Sightings, Incredible Occurrences, and Puzzling Physical Phenomena (The Seeker Series)
Visible Ink Press
THE book on unexplained phenomena
I will make my review short and sweet: THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST BOOK ON UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA I'VE EVER READ. I've re-read this book from cover to cover many times. I especially appreciate the fact that lesser known subjects such as Mad Gassers, Springheel Jack, Mokele Mbembe, and Pwdre Ser are given respectable coverage. For example, I consider this book's account of the Mothman ...
Mathematical Theory of Quantum Fields (Check Info and Delete This Occurrence: C Ismp T International Series ...
Oxford University Press, USA
Extraordinary Precision & Clarity
Richard Feynman was always careful to remind his students that the mathematics and formalism behind quantum theory were more than just recipes, but that they also gave a deep structural understanding of the subject. That philosophy seems to have been the guiding one in the writing of this monograph. The entire monograph is single minded in its devotion to a rigorous development of the algebra ...
Eocene Biodiversity - Unusual Occurrences and Rarely Sampled Habitats (TOPICS IN GEOBIOLOGY)
The aims of the book are two-fold: (i) to document unusual or rare samples of Eocene fossils, and (ii) to examine what sorts of new and different information can be gathered from these samples that is traditionally not available. New information may come in the form of a better understanding of morphology through specialized preservational circumstances that produce complete specimens, often with details of soft tissue anatomy. Other new ...

All chapters are uniformly structured, covering properties, pollution sources, occurrence in wastewater, surface water, and groundwater as well as water treatment aspects, while ecotoxicological and ...
