The Outlaw Ocean

The Outlaw Ocean

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A riveting, adrenaline-fueled tour of a vast, lawless, and rampantly criminal world that few have ever seen: the high seas. There are few remaining frontiers on our planet. But perhaps the wildest, and least understood, are the world's oceans: too big to police, and under no clear international authority, these immense regions of treacherous water play host to rampant criminality and exploitation. Traffickers and smugglers, pirates and mercenaries, wreck thieves and repo men, vigilante conservationists and elusive poachers, seabound abortion providers, clandestine oil-dumpers, shackled slaves and cast-adrift stowaways—drawing on five years of perilous and intrepid reporting, often hundreds of miles from shore, Ian Urbina introduces us to the inhabitants of this hidden world. Through their stories of astonishing courage and brutality, survival and tragedy, he uncovers a globe-spanning network of crime and exploitation that emanates from the fishing, oil, and shipping industries, and on which the world's economies rely. Both a gripping adventure story and a stunning exposé, this unique work of reportage brings fully into view for the first time the disturbing reality of a floating world that connects us all, a place where anyone can do anything because no one is watching.

The Outlaw

The Outlaw

A small town lives in terror of the Outlaw, but one day, he disappears—and a mysterious stranger rides into town ... In this spare and powerful story set in the Old West, people in a small town live in constant worry of another visit from the Outlaw. Then the Outlaw suddenly and mysteriously disappears. Time passes, and one day a stranger rides into town. He takes it upon himself to fix everything that is in disrepair — the clapboard schoolhouse, the train station platform. He even builds a horse trough. But when someone recognizes him as the Outlaw, the crowd turns on the stranger. It takes the courage of a small boy to change the course of events ... The subtle, beautiful mixed-media art with its nineteenth-century textural references perfectly complements this original story from debut author and illustrator Nancy Vo.

Outlawed

Outlawed

Changing history is easy. It's what comes after that's difficult. Traveling through time to twelfth century England was never on Maryanne Warren's to do list. Not that modern-day life's going so well, but at least her little brother is in it. He's the only reason she's climbed out of bed recently. To get back to him, she's just got to convince young outcast, Robin of Woodhurst, to become Robin Hood. It should be simple. A quick trip through time, instigate a carriage robbery or two, then back to life as she knows it. But somehow Rob slips through the walls she's spent years building and makes her care about his cause. She doesn't even want to think about the way his intense stare renders her speechless. As the time to return home draws closer, she becomes less certain her brother is her future. Perhaps her place is here at Rob's side, as his Lady Marian. But the magic that sent her here has its own agenda, and Maryanne must decide which of her two lives is the life worth fighting for. This fast-paced retelling with a slow-burn romance will keep the pages turning until late at night. If you love Sarah J Maas, Kiera Cass and Marissa Meyer, you'll love this.

Gender Outlaw

Gender Outlaw

Gender Outlaw is the work of a woman who has been through some changes--a former heterosexual male, a one-time Scientologist and IBM salesperson, now a lesbian woman writer and actress who makes regular rounds on the TV (so to speak) talk shows. In her book, Bornstein covers the "mechanics" of her surgery, everything you've always wanted to know about gender (but were too confused to ask) addresses the place and politics of the transgendered and intterogates the questions of those who give the subject little thought, creating questions of her own.
