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...

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...

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. With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for or...

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. The most common definition of a journey is “something suggesting travel or passage from one place to another.” Yet another definition is “a person’s experience of changing or developing from one state of mind to another.” The second definition applies to this book. It details the experiences and learnings of a veterinarian in India and various countries in Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean. In the journey of life, everyone faces ups and downs.  These stages during your journey give you an opportunity to learn, especially to correct the “downs.”  This can be done by trying again and again with vigorous hard work and the principles of honesty and Dr. Sharma shows you how ...

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...

War Pilot Memoirs: A Mirror on 1939 (War Pilots Book 1)

by J. Anomdeplume

The historian in each of us craves such stories: young Frenchman in a 1938 archery contest against our “Fritz”; real life cloak-and-dagger in Damascus; the thoughts of a fighter pilot, ammunition depleted, as he ducked under the wing of a Flying Fortress. As if listening to war stories from your grandfather or another veteran, turn these pages, dear Reader, with enthusiasm. It is a global odyssey, with an intriguing uneven flow as if notes scribbled into a journal, and it is cliffhanger nonfiction.

A Voice from the Main Deck: Being a Record of the Thirty Years' Adventures of Samuel Leech

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...

Mary Jane has been visiting the USA since the 1990s, and travelled right around the continental USA by Amtrak train in the autumn and winter of 2016 and 2017.

She took the train to the Glacier, Grand Teton, Yosemite and Rocky Mountains National Parks before the snow hit. She loved the Smithsonian museums and after seeing a dance at the Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC, she decided to go to Standing Rock.

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. It is even more fun when it is done in the night, under the cover of darkness, just like the invaders who attempted to conquer the fort in the past! But as soon as they start their journey, something mysterious starts to happen. Time starts playing with them, things go wrong at every step. However, instead of stopping them, the setbacks and misfortunes rather fuel their zeal and determination. They ignore all the bad omens and ...
