“Prescription Drugs Also Kill” is the true story of one woman’s struggle to recover from a 20 year addiction to prescription drugs. Author, D.L.

My Life Among the Indians (Illustrated)

by George Catlin

George Catlin was a fascinating figure of the nineteenth century, an artist-explorer who ventured deep into the wilds of the newly discovered Americas to paint the rapidly vanishing indigenous populations, their leaders, warriors, medicine men and scenes from their modes of life. The gifts Catlin received over the years from these remote peoples formed the basis for a vast, important collection which Catlin loaned to the world’s biggest museums, together with his portraits. Because of the stunning, life-like likenesses he created, the awed tribes dubbed Catlin Te-hee-pe-nee Washed which means The Great White Medicine.This new 2017 edition of My Life Among the Indians is illustrated with many examples of Catlin’s artwork from this period....

Cossacks are a group of predominantly East Slavic-speaking people who became known as members of democratic, self-governing, semi-military communities, predominantly located in Ukraine and in Russia.

Hanging out the Washing

by David Price

The other day, I met the Captain of the Malawi Skydiving team, and if that picture conjures up an image of a big, strong, young man with a daredevil gleam in his eye, you’re in for a surprise.
The captain’s name is Ingrid Elisabeth Price. She’s a slim 5ft 5in brunette and the mother of three children. She’s got that gleam in her eye, though, whenever she starts talking about parachuting. I asked her what made her want to do it."
'It was when we lived in Pirbright, Surrey. My husband, Gordon was stationed there with the Grenadier Guards as a Paratrooper. I was hanging out the washing when I heard the engines of an aeroplane stop overhead. I looked up and saw three tiny figures falling spread-eagled through the sky before they opened their parachutes and drifted down. I...
