Inspired by his granddaughter who is now also a US Marine, author Norman Albert now offers a biography that tells the story of his time as a marine after World War II in China. Little is generally known about the First Marine Corps Division's duty during the time from 1945 to1947. Albert, nicknamed "Yohouse" while serving, recounts his memories of that period, when many marines were killed or wounded and taken prisoner by the Chinese Communist soldiers. In "Yohouse from a Boot to a China Marine, " Albert explains what it was like to be sent with his division to China to disarm the Japanese soldiers. The marines were caught between the Nationalist and Communist parties near the end of the Chinese Civil War, often serving as a buffer between the two. Although the Communists regularly attacked marine convoys for ammunition and supplies, luckily Albert's convoys remained safe. Including a copy of the North China Marine publication about the US Marines, this memoir recalls a little-known period in the history of that branch of service, including both their challenges and their triumphs.

Contains practical instructions for constructing, stocking, and maintaining a tank, and for collecting plants and animals. Philip Henry Gosse (1810-1888) coined the term 'aquarium' in 1854 and set off the Victorian craze for keeping them in the home. His classic Handbook offers simple, practical advice for the beginner. This second edition, much improved by first-hand experience, captures Gosse at the height of his influence. A Fellow of the Royal Society, Gosse was one of Britain's great naturalists of the seaside, an expert on sea anemones, and a widely admired science writer. Over 150 years old, his Handbook is a fascinating window into the earliest days of aquarium keeping. Complete facsimile of 1856 edition.
