The Big Blue Ball: A Memoir

by Mike McIntyre

From the author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Kindness of Strangers comes a humorous and deeply revealing memoir about travel, perseverance, and the surprising places we find inspiration.In 1962, when Mike McIntyre's colorful grandmother becomes the first member of his working-class California family to travel overseas, she returns with a Pan Am tote bag, its side emblazoned with a big blue ball, the airline's iconic blue globe logo.Enchanted through childhood by the magical bag, McIntyre hurtles headlong into a life of wanderlust and adventure, transforming himself from a small-town slacker into an acclaimed, globe-trotting journalist. In a book that is both coming-of-age story and travelogue, he illuminates his journey with a candid, compelling prose that has earned him praise as "a reader's dream" (San Diego Union-Tribune).Funny, moving, offbeat, and ultimately, unforgettable, The Big Blue Ball vividly captures one man's meandering search for his place in the world.

One More Horizon: The Inspiring Story of One Man's Solo Journey Around the World on a Mountain Bike

by Scott Zamek

Pedaling a bicycle around the world was a lifelong dream, but everyone told him it could not be done. Dismissing the skeptics, disinterested sponsors, and a woefully inadequate bank account, Scott Zamek resolved to try. Some 25,000 miles and six million pedal revolutions later, Zamek had encountered Bengal tigers, angry mobs, prison and sandstorms, fed on yak, dog meat, and gobs of cow intestines.He had been taken prisoner by the Syrian Secret Police, left for dead in the Sahara Desert, and beset by hypothermia and heatstroke, using up two bicycles, 1,000 tire patches, and countless makeshift replacement parts along the way. One More Horizon takes us on a roller coaster ride of endurance and fatigue, success and setback, thieves and kindhearted souls, but what shines through in the end, is a reminder of all that is right with the human spirit.

Worth Every Gasp

by Anamika Mukherjee

Worth Every Gasp is the unique perspective of an Indian woman trekking alone through the Western Himalayas. Anamika sets out on a trek in Ladakh accompanied by her husband and a couple of friends. This trek is aborted when she develops pulmonary oedema, a potentially fatal form of high altitude sickness. Largely undaunted by this inauspicious start, Anamika bids farewell to her companions and embarks on a series of treks in Ladakh, Himachal, and Uttaranchal. She is accompanied, chaperoned, and sometimes bullied by her loyal guide Ballu, who is sometimes mistaken for her husband. As she meanders through the remote mountains, broad valleys, tiny villages, and high passes of the Himalayas, Anamika comes face to face with a wide range of landscapes, people, and improbable situations. She navigates through it all with the grace and elegance of an elephant on a dance floor, and emerges largely unscathed… apart from an irreparable scar to her reputation.

I Feel Free: Real Short Stories From The Magical World Of Music Festivals & What They Teach Us About Living Purposeful Lives

by Nealey Stapleton

These short stories are real life accounts. They are as funny, dirty and life changing as a music festival can be.

We’ve been going to music festivals since 2004. We’ve seen Bruce Springsteen rip it up on the guitar while on his knees in true rock god fashion, we’ve seen Willy Nelson strum his guitar and that iconic long hair, we’ve seen Paul McCartney emanate harmonious Beatles tunes from his piano, we’ve seen Robert Randolph, Buddy Guy, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Beach Boys, Radiohead, Widespread Panic, The Flaming Lips, Tom Petty, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers, Umphrey’s McGee, Capital Cities, Alt-J, Jeffrey James and the list goes on for several pages ranging from the most famous musicians to the least known and everything in between.

We’ve seen the legends and that in turn has made our tales truly legendary. We have also had our fair share of laughter and mud. We’ve experienced the incredible mental freedom that being at a music festival facilitates, and with that, we impart these narratives.

Meeting the Middle East: Travels in Arabia

by Jason Smart

Meeting the Middle East is a lighthearted travelogue through twelve countries of Arabia. Starting in the Gulf State of Qatar, Jason Smart sets out on his whirlwind tour. From the futuristic skylines of Doha and Dubai to the ancient temples of Petra and Byblos, he visits some of the greatest cities this often-misunderstood part of the world has to offer.

Among his adventures, he swims in the Dead Sea, takes a transit through Saudi Arabia, sees the bullet holes of Beirut and almost succumbs to heat exhaustion in Bahrain. Find out how a Land Cruiser rams him off the road in Qatar, and why, in Kuwait, he almost gets into a fight with a large man wearing a white robe. As his journey continues, he takes a day trip to Israel, has a memorable encounter with a Turkish barber in Istanbul and experiences the warmth of the Kurdish people in Iraq. His journey ends in Ajman, the smallest of the United Arab Emirates, where he gets to see some of the more unsavoury sights of the Middle East.

Meeting the Middle East is Jason Smart’s ninth travel book.
