The Night Hikers: A True Story of Three Boys' Adventure, Survival and Friendship

by Obaidur Rahaman

Three boys, immature, inexperienced and recklessly overenthusiastic, set off on a hike. Their goal is to decipher the secret entrance to a deserted historic fort at a hilltop in the Indian jungle. They are convinced that they can do it without the help of a map or a local guide. Figuring out the hidden path that leads up to an otherwise unscalable fort is great fun.

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...

Arnhem Land's Children

It was hot. A sudden stillness was in the late afternoon air. The waterhole's surface shone with unnatural smoothness. Fresh pig tracks at it's edge told of pigs just gone. Two bubbles popped up, their spreading ripples fracturing the tree and sky reflections; just decaying vegetation, said my mind. 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 ...

The Nepali Flat

by Gordon Alexander

Join Gordon Alexander in Nepal as he drags his ‘heavy arse’ over the Himalayas in this hilarious, adventure-soaked account of the Three Passes Trek, culminating in a visit to Everest Base Camp. The Nepali Flat, littered with Aussie slang (and explanations) and topped off with a dry sense of humour, is your ideal travel companion, or if you’re just looking for a bloody good yarn.

Together with guide Subash and porter Nima, Gordon tackles high passes in excess of 5400 metres (17700ft) and explains how high altitude affects a mildly-overweight road builder from sea level in the tropics. Each part of the journey brings new challenges including sub-freezing temperatures, almost falling into a crevasse, and alarmingly warm beer. Along the way he discovers the local Kukri Rum, ...

A Categorised List of 1000 Irish Memoirs and Autobiographies (Irish Reading Lists Book 1)

by M.C. O'Callaghan

This book consists of a very short essay on the value of reading memoirs, followed by a bare bones categorised list of 900 Irish memoirs and autobiographies. 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. Hopefully too the general public will find it useful. For instance, someone who is interested in sport might want to look up memoirs and autobiographies by Irish sportspeople. 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. This list of memoirs and autobiographies is not yet complete. The author hopes to...

Pedaling Through Paradise: A Cycling Journey to the Rockies

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....
