by Al Gale

Our son Harry died in my arms when he was 10 months old. He had actually survived far longer than experts had predicted. Cared for by Acorns Children's Hospice, his support had cost over £100,000.Years later, inspired by another bereaved parent, I decided I would undertake a sponsored physical challenge that would take me well beyond my personal comfort zone: Having never swum further than around a mile, I decided to attempt swimming the infamous English Channel.This book charts Harry's short life, and tells the back-story of my Channel attempt, as shown on BBC4's 'Swim the Channel' documentary....

Pedaling Through Paradise: A Cycling Journey to the Rockies

by P. Francia

After being cooped up on a Navy ship with over a thousand men, the author decided he needed a hearty taste of the wide-open outdoors. Driving across the states by automobile could have been a possibility, but it was ultimately decided that the best way to enjoy the many sights would be by bicycle, at a much slower pace.From riding past a stunningly beautiful section of a pine tree forest in Illinois, to pedaling up a steep incline to the top of a mountain pass in Colorado, to being generously offered a ride during a downpour of rain by a man and his family in a school bus, the adventures on the journey were never-ending. The kindness of the American people was amazing and joyful at many stops along the way....

The People's Champ: 50 Muhammad Ali Quotes

by Kim Burke

Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) was an American former heavyweight champion boxer and one of the greatest sporting figures of the 20th century. An Olympic gold medalist and the first fighter to capture the heavyweight title three times, Ali won 56 times in his 21-year professional career. Ali’s outspokenness on issues of race, religion and politics made him a controversial figure during his career, and the heavyweight’s quips and taunts were as quick as his fists. Born Cassius Clay Jr., Ali changed his name in 1964 after joining the Nation of Islam. Citing his religious beliefs, he refused military induction and was stripped of his heavyweight championship and banned from boxing for three years during the prime of his career. Parkinson’s syndrome severely impaired Ali’s motor skills and s...

The diary of an average runner: Never, ever, give up

by Mark cameron

Oh no I hear you sigh, another book promoting from fat to thin, from unfit coach potato to elite athlete, from don't do this to you must do that ! I can assure you the purpose of this book is none of those. I hope this is actually a little deeper than that, looking into why we do things, what kind of people we are, questioning what is the purpose of the things that we do.

This book is a year in my life centered around running, why I took it up, what did I experience, and what did I achieve at the end of it. Some of it is personal, some a little spiritual, some hopefully motivational, perhaps in places a little shallow - but then that sums up how I am !

The end goal of this isn't to encourage others to run; it's to share my experiences and to encourage others to ...

Super Nuke!: A Memoir About Life as a Nuclear Submariner and the Contributions of a "Super Nuke" - the USS RAY (SSN653) Toward Winning the Cold War

by Charles Cranston Jett

“Charles Jett has written an entertaining and factual memoir of an important time and series of events in the history of the cold war. He has succeeded in telling the unclassified story of the journey taken by an extraordinary group of men who built the first operational “Super Nuke” and effectively shared what they developed with others in the entire US nuclear submarine force. He created the SSN Pre Deployment training program, consolidated developments made on the Ray to create the highly useful Geographic Plot (Geo Plot) and wrote the tactical doctrine for the SSN based electronic intelligence collection system, AN/WLR-6. Well done, Charlie. I am proud to have had you as a shipmate.”

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....

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...

Theology has crumbled and political theory collapsed; technology complicates life and war; “political correctness” and the loss of legitimate journalism subverts truth to enthrone ignorance; religious fanaticism infiltrates governments, terrorizes citizens, inflames the world, and imperils every rational nation on our planet."The whole history of the last thousands of years has been one of religious persecutions and wars, jihads, crusades. With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for or...
