Description : Read Now Marvelous Melba by Ann Blainey and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. nobody sings like melba, and nobody ever will, proclaimed the impresario oscar hammerstein in 1908. like many others of his time, he considered her the world's greatest singer. the wild acclaim showered on her by american fans led to the coining of the word melbamania. year after year she toured america on the melba train, bringing opera and concerts to out-of-the-way cities and towns; thanks to the new gramophone, she could also be heard in the remotest locales. ann blainey's beguiling life of nellie melba tells the story of a woman who-in an era when no woman was prime minister, chief justice, head of a church or financial firm, or a universal film star-became perhaps the most famous woman in the world. ms. blainey's marvelous melba punctures many of the myths surrounding melba's life and career, and offers a new portrait of the great diva.

Description : Read Now King Of The Air by Ann Blainey and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. charles kingsford smith was the most commanding flyer of the golden age of aviation. in three short years, he broke records with his astounding and daring voyages: the first trans-pacific flight from america to australia, the first flight across the tasman, the first non-stop crossing of the australian mainland. he did it all with such courage, modesty and charm that australia and the world fell in love with him. a ticker-tape parade was held in his honour on new york’s fifth avenue. at home, he became a national hero, ‘our smithy’. yet his achievements belied a traumatic past. he had witnessed the horror of world war i – first as a soldier at gallipoli, later as a combat pilot with the royal flying corps. erratic, a compulsive philanderer, and almost always broke, he began to embark on increasingly wild and dangerous stunts. the public saw the derring-do; only those close to him knew the anxious, troubled individual who pushed himself to the edge of sanity. in november 1935, kingsford smith’s plane crashed and he was lost at sea near burma, his body never to be recovered. this brilliant work from one of australia’s foremost biographers reveals the tumultuous life of a fascinating, enigmatic figure, who pursued his obsession to the greatest heights of fame and catastrophe.

Description : Read Now Melba A Biography by Agnes G. Murphy and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. preface. the author of this very practical treatise on scotch loch - fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. he does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. the writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. this section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. the author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. we do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. one great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. a common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. try it. give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. well, we dont deny that. in an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...
