Running into Africa

by Stephanie Hodge

It's a roller coaster ride of a travelogue. There is an inverse relationship between angst and diversion-seeking behavior which takes the reader through packs of cigarettes and bottles of good South African cheap wine, across crocodile infested waters, on 33 mile runs with, boulders and baboons, and into very precarious emotional and social situations from which Hodge manages to extricate herself and remain unscathed. At 26, Hodge is weary, wondering, homesick and puzzled about love. And she really want to find out how to get into the Okavango delta for good! The raw stream of thoughts, events and feelings, are like a rope, magnified down to the fiber level. The personal account of Botswana highlights the different strands of her journey and how they are woven together: the cycles of high...

I should have known better, I should have smelt crocodile!!What is it about the Northern Territory that fascinates?I have only to mention it’s name in conversation and people stop and turn to listen.Why, for 190 years, has it drawn people from all over to come, stay longer than they imagined and, often, never leave?This book is a memoir of a family's life in a remote aboriginal community, in Australia's Northern Territory, something the equivalent of remote Canada or Alaska, where few people ...

Individual memoirs and autobiographies are listed in 32 categories, and other books about Irish memories are listed in the 33rd category.The list will hopefully be useful for academics and journalists.

For some people, the memoirs and autobiographies might be particularly important. For instance, if someone has cancer, other people’s cancer memoirs might be comforting and useful.

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

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 ...

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...

Prophecies of a Himalayan Sage, The Journals of Explorer M.G. Hawking

by M.G. Hawking

Explore the Extraordinary Wisdom and Prophetic Insights of a true Himalayan Sage.Every thinking person recognizes that humanity is in crisis, ecologically, spiritually, and very clearly politically—in fact, in any way you look at it. 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.

Voluntary Peasants, Inside the Ultimate American Commune—THE FARM: Part 5—Utopia Myopia

by Melvyn Stiriss

Beyond sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll—beyond hippies. Humorist/Journalist Melvyn Stiriss sheds new light on the sixties when, as a UPI reporter, he followed the story of the times over the edge to live the story himself.

Stiriss—“I co-founded and lived thirteen years in America’s biggest commune not undercover but as a full-fledged member of the hippie collective, living the dream, “saving the world.” The idea of writing about the experience came after, when I realized the importance of reporting behind-the-scenes, everyday observations of one of the most-intriguing social experiments to come out of that heady era.”
In this, the final part of the story of The Farm, Group Think takes its toll and the community goes through drastic changes.

A Veterinarian’s journey in India and abroad

by Dr. Ravindra Nath sharma

A Veterinarian’s Journey in India and Abroad is a great book for all in their journey of life.

Asphalt Asylum: The Dark Roads to Light

by Steve Theme

Experience the charity, horrors, and wonders of hitchhiking seven thousand miles alone. As nineteen-year-old Steve Theme leaves on a hitchhiking trek, he has no destination, no timeframe, and no self-respect. A home life of abuse and addiction didn’t prevent him from being selected Scholar/Athlete of the Year as a senior in high school, but hiding one life from the other has broken him into fragments. He leaves Seattle in 1978 as a know-it-all whose hobbies are shoplifting malt liquor and despising his university classmates, and himself.

This remarkable memoir traverses a journey of doubt and growth against a backdrop of constant vulnerability and danger. Theme is a captive witness to dozens of people’s stories until, finally, he’s able to tell his own. Asphalt Asylum ca...

by Samuel Leech

Samuel Leech (1798–1848) was a young sailor in the Royal Navy and the United States Navy during the War of 1812. He became notable as one of very few who wrote an account of his experiences, titled, in the manner of the time, "A Voice from the Main Deck".Leech's nautical career began in 1810, at the age of thirteen, when Lord William FitzRoy agreed to take Samuel into his frigate HMS Macedonian.He was a powder monkey during Macedonian's duel with the United States in 1812, and would later vividly describe the carnage on board the British ship before she struck her colors.  He was a prisoner of war but his imprisonment seems not to have been too uncomfortable, and did not last long in any case, since the war ended the following year.Many years later he revisited Macedonian, now a US ship...
