A vivid, searching journey into California´s capture of water and soil - an epic story of a people´s defiance of nature and the wonders, and ruin, it has wrought ´´A stunning history of power, arrogance, and greed.´´ (Kirkus Reviews, starred) Mark Arax is from a family of Central Valley farmers, a writer with deep ties to the land who has watched the battles over water intensify even as California lurches from drought to flood and back again. In The Dreamt Land, he travels the state to explore the one-of-a-kind distribution system, built in the 1940s, ´50s, and ´60s, that is straining to keep up with California´s relentless growth. This is a heartfelt, beautifully written book about the land and the people who have worked it - from gold miners to wheat ranchers to small fruit farmers and today´s Big Ag. Since the beginning, Californians have redirected rivers, drilled ever-deeper wells, and built higher dams, pushing the water supply past its limit. The Dreamt Land weaves reportage, history and memoir to confront the ´´Golden State´´ myth in riveting fashion. No other chronicler of the West has so deeply delved into the empires of agriculture that drink so much of the water. The nation´s biggest farmers - the nut king, grape king and citrus queen - tell their story here for the first time. This is a tale of politics and hubris in the arid West, of imported workers left behind in the sun and the fatigued earth that is made to give more even while it keeps sinking. But when drought turns to flood once again, all is forgotten as the farmers plant more nuts and the developers build more houses. Arax, the native son, is persistent and tough as he treks from desert to delta, mountain to valley. What he finds is hard earned, awe-inspiring, tragic, and revelatory. In the end, his compassion for the land becomes an elegy to the dream that created California and now threatens to 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Arax.

A body is found in the ruined Constantinople hippodrome: a woman, clutching a piece of red stone. She´s recently given birth, but there´s no sign of the baby. Inspector Cetin Ikmen discovers she was a Byzantine specialist on a crusade to protect the historic but now squalid areas of Istanbul that her enemy, property developer Ahmet Oden, seeks to destroy and rebuild. As Ikmen searches for the lost child and the truth behind her death, the people of Istanbul rise up in protest against their government in Gezi Park, and the city lurches into chaos and anger. Against this background, Ikmen will unravel a tale of ancient hostility and modern desires, where the truth is concealed within the secret history of this antique city. 1. Language: English.
