Alexandria is situated near the center of Douglas County, surrounded by a chain of beautiful lakes. These lakes brought pioneer settlers to the area as early as 1858, when Minnesota achieved statehood and the town was established. The lakes remain a key factor that continue to draw residents and visitors. The images in Postcard History Series: Alexandria tell the community's story, recalling fond memories of the businesses, churches, homes, schools, and recreational opportunities that form the generous and caring nature of the welcoming community that is Alexandria.

Newport's recent revitalization gives its citizens all the more reason to remember the city's storied past. Before Newport boomed with tourism, it was dubbed "the Sin City of the South," infamous for its abundant casinos and nightclubs. Prior to that, though, Newport thrived as a street car suburb and an industrial hub, relying on the Ohio River for transportation. Along with its neighbor, the Queen City of Cincinnati, Newport blossomed into the vibrant community that it is today. The vintage postcards in this volume depict the fascinating legacy left by Newport's people and places.

The Thousand Islands are more than 1,800 islands located in 35 miles of the upper St. Lawrence River between Upstate New York and southeastern Ontario. During the latter half of the 19th century, the region evolved as a vacation destination, initially for Canadian and American urbanites drawn by the restorative powers of spectacular scenery and relaxed summer life. Tourism expanded rapidly, and by the early 1900s, the Thousand Islands boasted dozens of grand hotels, daily railroad connections to New York and Philadelphia, steamship service to Montreal and Toronto, innumerable sightseeing and guided fishing excursions, and the best that North Americas premier vacation spot could offer.

Man schreibt das Jahr 1072 nach Christi Geburt. Der fränkische Krieger Vallon hat nichts mehr zu verlieren. In den Alpen begegnet er dem jungen Gelehrten Hero, unterwegs mit seinem Meister. Als dieser stirbt, bittet Hero Vallon um seine Begleitung nach England, wo er einem normannischen Ritter die Lösegeldforderung des türkischen Sultans für seinen Sohn überbringen soll. Doch der Preis für die Freiheit des jungen Sir Walter Olbec ist unermesslich hoch: vier weiße Gerfalken, kostbare Vögel, die überaus selten sind. Nur hoch im Norden, im ewigen Eis, hat man schon Exemplare davon gesehen. Für Vallon, Hero und ihre Gefährten beginnt eine atemberaubende Odyssee durch die entlegensten Länder der Welt – von Grönland über Russland bis nach Konstantinopel, über das tobende Nordmeer und blutgetränkte Schlachtfelder. Grausame Wikingerkrieger und rachsüchtige Normannen stellen sich ihnen in den Weg, wilde Flüsse und unweg­same Pfade gilt es zu überwinden, bis sie endlich ans Ziel kommen – und die Welt plötzlich nicht mehr so ist, wie sie einmal war ...
