History


The Great Quake is a riveting narrative about the biggest earthquake in North American recorded history — the 1964 Alaska earthquake that demolished the city of Valdez and swept away the island village of Chenega — and the geologist who hunted for clues to explain how and why it took place.

Heiress to the nearly forty-billion-dollar L’Oréal fortune, Liliane Bettencourt is the world’s richest woman. At ninety-four, she’s now embroiled in a scandal that dominated the headlines in France. The Bettencourt Affair is part courtroom drama; part upstairs-downstairs tale; and part story of a complex family and the intruder who nearly tore it apart.
