    The Floating Press 2015; US$ 3.99

  • The Buccaneer Chiefby Gustave Aimard

    The Floating Press 2015; US$ 3.99

    From the 1500s to the 1800s, a vast swath of what is now North America, Central America, and South America was a hub of great wealth and power controlled by Spain. Not surprisingly, this area was a popular target for swindlers, thieves, and the special breed of pirates known as buccaneers. French writer Gustave Aimard expertly dramatizes the longstanding... more...

  • The Frontiersmenby Gustave Aimard

  • The Gold-Seekersby Gustave Aimard

    The Floating Press 2013; US$ 3.99

    Though he was born and died in France, action-adventure writer Gustave Aimard was endlessly enamored with the Americas, and he journeyed extensively in the United States, Mexico, and South America over the course of his life. In The Gold-Seekers, Aimard draws on his own time as a miner in nineteenth-century California and Mexico to spin a pulse-pounding... more...

  • Stoneheartby Gustave Aimard

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    Like many of Gustave Aimard's classic action-adventure novels, Stoneheart traces long-simmering conflicts between two groups of people: the indigenous tribes that occupied the land for thousands of years, and the more recent arrivals seeking to exploit natural resources and stake their own claims. Set in the perilous terrain of northern Mexico,... more...

  • The Temptation of Saint Anthonyby Gustave Flaubert

    The Floating Press 1904; US$ 3.99

    Gustave Flaubert spent his life working on and revising the book he considered his greatest work, before releasing this final version in 1874.

  • Three Short Worksby Gustave Flaubert

    The Floating Press 1877; US$ 3.99

    The three works in this book are each strikingly different.

  • The White Scalperby Gustave Aimard

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    Set against the backdrop of the Mexican-American War, Gustave Aimard's thrilling adventure tale The White Scalper is yet another of the author's novels whose central protagonist is something of a cultural misfit, an outsider who has spurned social niceties in favor of what he views as a higher moral calling. Packed with action that transpires... more...

  • Balle-francheby Gustave Aimard; Ligaran

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 2.99

    Extrait : "L'Amérique est la terre des prodiges ! tout y acquiert des proportions gigantesques qui effrayent l'imagination et confondent la raison. Montagnes, rivières, lacs et fleuves, tout est taillé sur un patron sublime. Voici un fleuve de l'Amérique septentrionale, non comme le Rhône, le Danube ou le Rhin dont les rives sont couvertes de villes,... more...

  • The Crowdby Gustave Le Bon

    The Floating Press 2009; US$ 6.99

    The following work is devoted to an account of the characteristics of crowds.
