Resumen del eBook

All stories attempt to soften the truth. Allthe truths aim to be history. The facts dream of being just words that arediluted in the oblivion of time. It will be seen in this case that the truthclaims to be history but only in the imagination. What I come to tell youhappened in a land of peace where life was an indefinite a rticle.In that place the seeds did well, the greenstretched in gentle landscapes, the rice paddies ripened in time, the treesgained height, dry and rainingseasons flowed in perfect synchronization; the rain poured joyous and blessedgranting to the land varieties of beauty and abundance. But one dayarrived unexpectedly the war. At thebeginning we talked about a tribal war. What does a tribal war means in a country where eighteen tribes vyingfor the power? It means that bad boys compete for the territory, the men andthe arguments. And also came along which I call"imperfection",others prefer to call it"vice"from the earth of Whites.So this story Im about to begin will give methe opportunity to detail. ... Leer resumen completo

Resumen del eBook

At 7 a.m. on Monday 1 September 2003, the day Lucy and I celebrated our eighth not-married-but-together anniversary, we were in bed with our ten-month-old daughter Bibi lying chaperone between us when the crash of breaking glass startled us awake. Bibi wailed. I jumped out of bed and crept to the window; three men were atta cking the house next door with sledgehammers and crowbars. I sighed. It had begun.James OLoghlin was concerned. His once-peaceful mornings would now be full of dust, loud radio and miscellaneous smashing from the demolition and rebuilding going on next door. Then came the idea: each morning James and his family would explore their own city. Between the three of them theyd lived in Sydney a lifetime, but it was full of places they hadnt seen and things theyd never done. It was time to do some catching up.Surely you cant have new experiences and feel the wide-eyed excitement travel offers in a city where youve lived for twenty years or can you? A Month of Sundays is a funny and personal account of what James found when he ran away from home each day and went looking for peace, fun and the mysteries behind the dating rituals of the whipbird. Its also the story of how he tried to answer to the biggest question of them all: how the hell do I live my life? ... Leer resumen completo

Resumen del eBook

As humans, we lead a life full of struggle and strife. During trying moments, we might knowingly or unknowingly indulge in actions that may be sinful. After a certain time, the wrong actions start weighing us down, and our conscience prods us to atone for our sins. That is when we consider visiting a teertha, where we can g o and ask for forgiveness. Such a spiritual journey is termed as a pilgrimage or teertha yatra, which is one of the distinguished facets of Hinduism. Though, undertaking a religious journey is not mandatory in this religion, still a number of Hindus visit the teerthas every year in search of peace and enlightenment. Most of the teerthas are located in calm and secluded places surrounded by the pristine Beauty Care of nature. These places may be near a water source, a mountain or a forest. Their environs are further sanctified by the presence of the holy men and their regular mantra chanting. Such places provide immense peace to the soul. Hindu Pilgrimage - The Teerthas takes you on a mental journey to such spiritual places in India. The book discusses in detail Chaar Dhaam, Himalayan Chaar Dhaam, Sapt Puri, Dwadash Jyotirlingam, Panch Sarovar, Sapt Sarita, Divya Desam, Shakti Peetha, Yatras and also some of the famous temples in India. Enhanced with vivid and exclusive pictures, the book brings the places alive and inspires one to make a pilgrimage to these holy shrines. ... Leer resumen completo

Resumen del eBook

By 2.30 a.m. I was in Poachers, where tabletop dancing and swinging off the stair rails were obligatory at this kind of hour. A hundred arms thrusting into the air with the techno beat, sweaty bodies twitching as if it were an electric current, not music, coursing through their veins. But the tall Chinese boy standing next to me wasnt dancing. He had a beer in his hand and he had a question. Are you a spy? he asked.When Kirsty Needham moves to Beijing her expectations of what it would be like to work and live as a journalist in China are swiftly swept away by the bizarre realities of this extraordinary country. As she grapples with the strange and often contradictory world of modern China - a country of communist slogans and transvestite nightclubs, SARS scares and SWAT-like teams of tourist handlers - Kirsty becomes embroiled in a world that constantly challenges her perceptions as it quietly wins her heart.By turns enlightening, enthralling and bizarre, Kirstys is a unique take on contemporary China as it is evolving right now. From a city where St Bernard dogs are the new status symbols and nice middle-class Beijingers play the NASDAQ for fun, she provides a fresh, compelling outsiders view of one of the fastest changing countries in the world. enlightening, enthralling and bizarre, Kirstys is a unique take on contemporary China as it is evolving right now.

FOOTPRINTS ACROSS AMERICA: RETRACINGAN IRISHMAN'S JOURNEY DURING THE LAST GREAT GOLD RUSH (EBOOK)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 13/11/2013
MICHAEL MCMONAGLE
ORPEN PRESS

Resumen del eBook

Inspired by the adventures of a hardy nineteenth-century Irish emigrant to America, Mici Mac Gabhann, who detailed his exploits in the Irish language book Rotha Mor an tSaoil, Michael McMonagle undertakes an epic journey to retrace his steps. Following his journey from New York to the Klondike Gold Rush, he traverses the Gr eat Plains, the Rocky Mountains of Montana, and the vast Alaskan wilderness. As he compares the America that Mici encountered in the late nineteenth century with that of the twenty-first century, the author provides a unique perspective on a very different America.Footprints Across America weaves the two journeys together and highlights the strong links between both eras. We are brought to historic places like Butte and Dawson City, mining ghost towns, Native American reservations, ranch houses and isolated Alaskan villages. We are dragged up mountains and down rivers. In these out-of-the-way places, the voices of cowboys, shamans, exotic dancers, soldiers, chancers, miners and Native Americans emerge to paint an insightful picture of life in America today, while the author also paints a compelling picture of the life of an immigrant caught up in the excitement of the Gold Rush.Michael McMonagle is an entertaining, easy-going and humorous travel companion who has an empathetic ear for the people he encounters and an observant eye for the natural world. In Footprints Across America he reveals the diverse and fascinating nature of America, then and now. ... Leer resumen completo

Resumen del eBook

In July 2010, Tom Doig and his best mate Tama Pugsley cycled 1487 kilometres across northern Mongolia from a small town called Moron to a smaller town also called Moron. Why? Because it was there. Armed with spandex unitards, Chinese steel-frame mountain bikes, unidentifiable meat product and a woefully inadequate phraseboo k, these two morons blunder into some of the worlds most remote and beautiful wilderness--and triumph. Sort of.For 23 brutalising days--two days longer than the Tour de France--Tom and Tama slog their way over muddy mountains and across desolate steppes, all the time struggling to avoid Mongolias legendary hospitality. This hilarious, thoroughly shonky odyssey overflows with sweat, miscommunication and torrents of Chinggis Khaan vodka--named after Genghis Khan, the greatest warrior who ever lived.Moron to Moron is a travel book like none other. It has it all: pleasure, pain, heartache, heartburn and the dried fermented milk of a horse. ... Leer resumen completo

The coach waiting for us at the airport was driven by Richard. His only English words were no problem but he was an excellent driver, negotiating the sometimes tortuous French roads in his big white bus...On the first tour, we kept noticing a small car that seemed to be following us. Day after day with the same attractive d river. Eventually the penny dropped... she was Richards partner. She caught up with him each evening but didnt want to intrude. When we realised the situation we warmly welcomed Silvie into our group...For almost ten years Margaret Whitlam led a double life.Best known for her role as a much-loved public figure and National Treasure, Margaret also happens to be a tour leader extraordinaire. She has visited almost every corner of the globe, taking with her hundreds of travellers on group study tours.This is Margarets story of people and places she encountered in her other world - travelling the Wine Road of Burgundywalking through the ancient city of Macchu Picchusharing a meal with a friendly family in their Moscow homegoing to the opera in Vienna, and a nightclub in Istanbul. It is brimming with anecdotes and observations, and the odd travel tip (a great place to eat in Dijon, an experience to avoid on Lake Titicaca).Margarets tours were so popular that some people travelled with her year after year. You will meet Betty for whom the world is magnifique, Charles the Bairn from Nairn, Father Jim who is not always reverent, lovely Mariana crossed-in-love... and many more. Margarets gentle humour and infectious enthusiasm for faraway places make this a truly delightful way to journey around the world - all from the comfort of your favourite armchair.

Resumen del eBook

I tripped across the Charles Bridge just before first light, all alone apart from a sleepy pickpocket just clocking on for the morning shift, my heels clacking on the cobblestones, the early morning sky a beautiful deep blue.Armed only with a romantic soul and a pressing need to escape her overbearing family, Rachael Weiss heads for Prague in search of her Bohemian roots, with vague plans to write the next great Australian novel and perhaps, just perhaps, fall madly in love with an exotic Czech man with high cheekbones.They make it seem so easy, those other women who write of uprooting themselves from everything they know, crossing the world and forming effortless friendships with strangers, despite not understanding a word they say, while reinventing themselves in beautiful European cities. So its not surprising that Rachael is completely unprepared for the realities that confront her in her strange new world. Initially starry-eyed, she quickly has to grapple with perplexing plumbing, extraordinarily rude checkout chicks, and the near-incomprehensible Czech language.In this warm and witty tale of life in a foreign land, Rachael, somewhat to her own surprise, finds herself gradually creating a second home in Prague, complete with an eccentric and unlikely tribe of extended family and friends; and realises along the waythat while shes been striving so hard to become someone else, she has inadvertently grown to rather like the person she has always been.Me, Myself + Prague is a sweet and surprising memoir of discovering hope, self, family and friendship, Czech-style. ...

Resumen del eBook

We were completely unprepared for the magnificence of the gallery suddenly revealed. A shiver ran up my spine as I saw for the first time the great white Wandjina spirit figures, two and three times larger than human scale. So begins Tim Bowdens fascination with rarely seen Aboriginal rock art, a major theme in this most re cent book detailing the Bowdens continuing love affair with Australia.On their latest journey Tim and Ros Bowden explore the Kimberley by land and sea, where dramatic twelve-metre tides guard coastal locations unchanged by time - still as 17th century buccaneer William Dampier first described them. For three months, Tim and Ros and their trusty four-wheel-drive, Penelope, travelled from the improbably sculptured Bungle Bungles to the Pilbara and the wildflower-filled Mid West.Bowdens enthusiasm for history is infectious and this book is peppered with great stories of present and past, ill-fated settlements and expeditions, tragic tourist deaths and the grandeur of Australias intriguing, spectacular north-west. ...

Resumen del eBook

The Donnington Way a History of Donnington Brewery and walk between the Donnington Inns.Donnington Mill was perhaps one of the Mills of Broadwell Manor, which dated back to 1291. In the 16th century it was used as a Cloth Mill which the Lord of the Manor of Donnington rebuilt and converted into two Corn Mills circa 1580. H owever, early in the 17th century, the Mill became a separate freehold estate, and in 1827 the buildings were bought by Thomas Arkell, whose descendant Richard Arkell started a Brewery there in 1865. The Brewery flourishes today and has been owned and run by the Arkell family ever since. Claude Arkell, the grandson of the founder, passed away in 2007 after 50 years at the Brewery. Today it is owned and run by James Arkell. Some of the neighbouring land is owned by the family and, until the mid-1960s, it provided barley for use in the brewing process. However, since that time malt has been supplied by Norfolk maltings together with hops obtained locally from Worcestershire. Today the Millhouse is still there in splendid condition, and operates as part of the Brewery. Even the mill wheel. is still used to drive small pumps and machines. The end product, Donningtons traditional beers, are still produced by much the same recipe that has always been in use. The basic requirement, that is water or, in brewing terms"liquor", is drawn from a strong spring beside the mill pond and has proved to be satisfactory for use in the brewing process in its natural state. Two regular draught beers are brewed; BB 3.6% abv and SBA 4.4% abv Double Donn is also a regular bottled beer. Special ales are now occasionally brewed; Founders Ale, Diamond Queen and Donnington Gold. Of the Brewery itself, the setting and the architecture can only be described as idyllic, with beautiful Cotswold buildings, carefully tended lawns and paths leading down to the mill pond at the head of which is a Trout Farm. ...

THE COTSWOLDS TOWN AND VILLAGE GUIDE (EBOOK)

PETER TITCHMARSH; NICHOLAS REARDON
REARDON PUBLICATIONS

Resumen del eBook

"The Cotswold Town and Village Guide": The latest fully updated edition of the"Definitive Guide to Places of Interest in the Cotswolds"as the author says this is the result of my continuing love affair with the Cotswolds, an area that I have known for most of my life and one that I have been visiting with my camera and note book for well over fifty years. A glance at the maps contained in this book will soon reveal that the area covered extends well beyond the classic Cotswolds, but it never strays far from true limestone country with its typically lovely stone towns and villages. These are enfolded by rolling hills and quiet wooded valleys through which clear streams flow and all have a similar character to the better-known places of pilgrimage like Stow on the Wold, Cirencester, Bourton-on-the-Water or Broadway. Of course these favourites have not been ignored. The Cotswold countryside is as near to perfection as one could wish for, but it is still further enhanced by the treasures to be found within its towns, villages and hamlets. Here are some of Britains loveliest medieval churches and domestic buildings, almost all of which are built of the marvellous honey coloured Cotswold stone that here lies so close to the surface. When setting out on your journeys of discovery, savour each day and not try to cover too much ground - it has taken me most of a lifetimeto get round it all! If possible buy a good map or maps (preferably Ordnance Survey ones) and walk from village to village along a quiet footpath or bridleway, stopping beside a stream for a picnic, or at a pub for lunch. This is another book from Reardon Publishing the Cotswold Publisher. ... Leer resumen completo

The poem on the back cover The Cotswolds"is a special creation for us by Cotswold poet and family friend Alfred King This book is not only a great guide to the Cotswolds, but a real product of this wonderful part of England, as it has been written, illustrated, designed, printed and published all within the Cotswold area. The Cotswolds The beauty of the Cotswolds is not new. It is not something that has just come about recently. It is, you might even say, as old as the hills themselves. To the visitor from other parts, it has a unique splendour all its own. To those fortunate enough to live here, it is seen in a different way. Through the ages this beauty has been captured by the artists brush, the pen of the writer and in more recent times, the camera lens of the photographer. There are many fine paintings in existence of the great country houses in wonderful settings, and much has been written of the towns and villages of the Cotswolds. But it is not only beauty to be found in these hills, they arerich in history also. The Romans came, stayed a while and then left. They were about the first to leave us monuments of their advanced way of life that we can understand today. ... Leer resumen completo

Universally recognised as an industrious city, an important centre of finance and fashion, Milan has some aspects not very known, but equally fascinating. Within the texture of the fabric of the city and the folds of the frenetic streets, the churches and the ancient palaces tell about a millenary story. A story that began with thick woods where there were Celtic villages and then became mighty Roman structures and later on gorgeous Renaissance villas. And there are voices that tell of saints, of famous people, but also of murderers, legends and ghosts. A trip to discover the disappeared Navigli (waterways), the secrets that conceal themselves in famous places as the Duomo (Cathedral) and the Castello Sforzesco (Castle), the squares where the witches were burnt, the symbols left by Templars and Freemasons. A guide that will accompany the tourists and discerning readers to discover a city rich in history, architecture and curiosities. ... Leer resumen completo

A WEEK ON THE CONCORD AND MERRIMACK RIVERS (EBOOK)

Resumen del eBook

In 1849, Thoreau published his first book, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. The actual voyage was performed by the two brothers Henry and John in the late summer of 1839 in a boat of their own making,"painted green below with a border of blue, with reference to the two elements in which it was to spend its existe nce."During his Walden retirement, Thoreau worked over the original record of his pleasant outing, expanding it greatly by the inclusion of very various material, and had it published at his own risk by Monroe in 1849. It was the year of the Argonauts, of the gold-rush to California, and such literary treasure as the odd book contained was not much regarded. Though favourably reviewed by Ripley and by Lowell, it did not please the public, and over seven hundred copies out of an impression of one thousand were thrown back on the authors hands. It is another of the paradoxes of Thoreaus career that since his death, this failure has been edited with almost benedictine care. ... Leer resumen completo
