Deep South: Four Seasons on Back Roads

Deep South: Four Seasons on Back Roads

Paul Theroux

$24.99
This is Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller. Acclaimed and beloved travel writer Paul Theroux turns his attention to his own country - America - for the first time in Deep South. For the past fifty years, Paul Theroux has travelled to the far corners of the earth - to China, India, Africa, the Pacific Islands, South America, Russia, and elsewhere - and brought them to life in his cool, exacting prose. In Deep South he turns his gaze to a region much closer to his home. Travelling through North and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas, Paul Theroux writes of the stunning landscapes he discovers - the deserts, the mountains, the Mississippi - and above all, the lives of the people he meets. The South is a place of contradictions. There is the warm, open spirit of the soul food cafes, found in every town, no matter how small. There is the ruined grandeur of numberless ghostly towns, long abandoned by the industries that built them. There are the state gun shows and the close-knit, subtly forlorn tribe of people who attend and run them. Deep in the heart of his native country, Theroux discovers a land more profoundly foreign than anything he has previously experienced.

Shackleton's Epic: Recreating the Polar Explorer's Incredible Journey Of Survival

Shackleton's Epic: Recreating the Polar Explorer's Incredible Journey Of Survival

Tim Jarvis

$29.99
Sir Edmund Hilary called it the greatest survival story of all time. In 1916, just months into Ernest Shackleton's third expedition to the South Pole, his ship, the Endurance, became trapped in pack ice and sank. With winter setting in and supplies running out, Shackleton faced a terrible quandary: should he and his crew stay on a tiny inhospitable stretch of Antarctic island and die waiting? Or should they make an almost certainly doomed journey, and sail in a lifeboat across 900 miles of the world's wildest ocean then trek over unmapped glaciers to reach help.

Showing astonishing courage, Shackleton and a small band of men set off in an open boat. Even more astonishingly, they survived. Almost a century later, explorer and environmental scientist Tim Jarvis set out with a crew of five to replicate Shackleton's journey, using the same equipment, eating the same unpalatable food and facing the same hostile ocean conditions. Shackleton's Epic is the story of that trip - the wretched lows and the occasional highs and the mental and physical toughness required to survive in one of the last wildernesses on earth.

Moving between the past and the present, this is a must-read book for all Shackleton fans and lovers of epic adventure.

Island of Dreams: A Personal History of a Remarkable Place

Island of Dreams: A Personal History of a Remarkable Place

Dan Boothby

$19.99
Dan Boothby had been drifting for more than twenty years, without the pontoons of family, friends or a steady occupation. He was looking for but never finding the perfect place to land. Finally, unexpectedly, an opportunity presented itself. After a lifelong obsession with Gavin Maxwell's Ring of Bright Water trilogy, Boothby was given the chance to move to Maxwell's former home, a tiny island on the western seaboard of the Highlands of Scotland. Island of Dreams is about Boothby's time living there, and about the natural and human history that surrounded him; it's about the people he meets and the stories they tell, and about his engagement with this remote landscape, including the otters that inhabit it. Interspersed with Boothby's own story is a quest to better understand the mysterious Gavin Maxwell. Beautifully written and frequently leavened with a dry wit, Island of Dreams is a charming celebration of the particularities of place.

Sharon Pincott

$32.99

For thirteen years - the worst in Zimbabwe's volatile history - this intrepid Australian woman lived in the Hwange bush fighting for the lives of these elephants, forming an extraordinary and life-changing bond with them...Powerfully moving, sometimes disturbing and often very funny, Elephant Dawn is a celebration of love, courage and honour amongst our greatest land mammals. With resilience beyond measure, Sharon earns the supreme right to call them family.

Full Moon Over Noah's Ark: An Odyssey to Mount Ararat and Beyond

Full Moon Over Noah's Ark: An Odyssey to Mount Ararat and Beyond

Rick Antonson

$37.99
Acclaimed travel writer Rick Antonson sets his adventurous compass on Mount Ararat, exploring the region's long history, religious mysteries, and complex politics.

Mount Ararat is the most fabled mountain in the world. For millennia this massif in eastern Turkey has been rumored as the resting place of Noah's Ark following the Great Flood. But it also plays a significant role in the longstanding conflict between Turkey and Armenia.

Author Rick Antonson joined a five-member expedition to the mountain?s nearly 17,000-foot summit, trekking alongside a contingent of Armenians, for whom Mount Ararat is the stolen symbol of their country. Antonson weaves vivid historical anecdote with unexpected travel vignettes, whether tracing earlier mountaineering attempts on the peak, recounting the genocide of Armenians and its unresolved debate, or depicting the Kurds? ambitions for their own nation?s borders, which some say should include Mount Ararat.

What unfolds in Full Moon Over Noah's Ark is one man's odyssey, a tale told through many stories. Starting with the flooding of the Black Sea in 5600 BCE, through to the Epic of Gilgamesh and the contrasting narratives of the Great Flood known to followers of the Judaic, Christian and Islamic religions, Full Moon Over Noah's Ark takes readers along with Antonson through the shadows and broad landscapes of Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Armenia, shedding light on a troubled but fascinating area of the world.

In Manchuria: A Village Called Wasteland and the Transformation of Rural China

In Manchuria: A Village Called Wasteland and the Transformation of Rural China

Michael Meyer

$27.99
In the tradition of In Patagonia and Great Plains, Michael Meyer's In Manchuria is a scintillating combination of memoir, contemporary reporting, and historical research, presenting a unique profile of China's legendary northeast territory. For three years, Meyer rented a home in the rice-farming community of Wasteland, hometown to his wife's family. Their personal saga mirrors the tremendous change most of rural China is undergoing, in the form of a privately held rice company that has built new roads, introduced organic farming, and constructed high-rise apartments into which farmers can move in exchange for their land rights. Once a commune, Wasteland is now a company town, a phenomenon happening across China that Meyer documents for the first time; indeed, not since Pearl Buck wrote The Good Earth has anyone brought rural China to life as Meyer has here. Amplifying the story of family and Wasteland, Meyer takes us on a journey across Manchuria's past, a history that explains much about contemporary China - from the fall of the last emperor to Japanese occupation and Communist victory. Through vivid local characters, Meyer illuminates the remnants of the imperial Willow Palisade, Russian and Japanese colonial cities and railways, and the POW camp into which a young American sergeant parachuted to free survivors of the Bataan Death March. In Manchuria is a rich and original chronicle of contemporary China and its people.

South: The Illustrated Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914-1917

South: The Illustrated Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914-1917

Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton ,  Frank Hurley

$49.99
Experience the epic survival adventure of Ernest Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, brought to life with photos from the journey as well as modern color photography of the fauna, seascapes, and landscapes!

In 1914, the polar explorer Ernest Shackleton announced an ambitious plan to lead the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition--the first trek across Antarctica from the Atlantic to the Pacific via the South Pole. Shackleton's third expedition would prove frought with adventure--and peril.

South is the remarkable tale of that ill-fated expedition as told in Shackleton's own words, and illustrated here with the photography of expedition photographer Frank Hurley, as well as modern color imagery of the fauna and stunning vistas the men encountered. Their story begins on the eve of World War I, when the ship Endurance departed from England with Shackleton and his team of six men. The plan was to travel 1,800 miles across the icy continent from the Atlantic side, while a second team aboard the ship Aurora, would reach the Pacific side from Tasmania and lay out supply depots for the advancing team.

As the Endurance approached the continent, however, it faced early ice, and the vessel became hopelessly locked in an ice floe, beginning a series of travails for the men of theEndurance, including ice-covered mountainous islands, harrowing days in a life raft surrounded by hurricane-force winds, braving untested overland routes into the vast unknown, and much more.

Today considered an adventure survival classic, South is the true story of a thrilling polar expedition. Never before has Shackleton's lively prose been so extensively illustrated with such stunning images.

Walking Away

Walking Away

Simon Armitage ,  Sue Roberts

$22.99
Not content with walking the Pennine Way as a modern day troubadour, an experience recounted in his best-seller and prize-wining Walking Home, the restless poet has followed up that journey with a walk of the same distance but through the very opposite terrain and direction far from home. In Walking Away Simon Armitage swaps the moorland uplands of the north for the coastal fringes of Britain's south west, once again giving readings every night, but this time through Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, taking poetry into distant communities and tourist hot-spots, busking his way from start to finish. From the surreal pleasure dome of Minehead Butlins to a smoke-filled roundhouse on the Penwith Peninsula then out to the Isles of Scilly and beyond, Armitage tackles this personal Odyssey with all the poetic reflection and personal wit we've come to expect of one of Britain's best loved and most popular writers.

MH370: The Secret Files

MH370: The Secret Files

Nigel Cawthorne

$18.99
On 8 March 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport bound for Beijing. Less than an hour after take-off, somewhere over the South China Sea the plane simply vanished. One eyewitness saw a burning object crash into the sea. But confusing radar signals trace tracked an aircraft taking an erratic course across the Malaysian peninsula, then on to the Andaman Sea. Did it crash there? Or did it fly on to land safely in disputed lands of Central Asia, or the top secret CIA 'black site' on Diego Garcia? Data from the Rolls Royce engines tracked by Inmarsat was said to indicate that it might have ditched in the furthest reaches of the South Indian Ocean. We know more about the surface of the moon than the bottom of the sea there. And the weather and currents are so bad, it may never be found. Convenient? Two years later, the Australians are still search - at the cost of billions - and have found nothing. But was the search in such a remote place part of a cover-up to distract the world's attention because the US Navy had, in fact, shot the plane down?Since the invention of radio, radar, satellite navigation and the internet, the world has become a smaller place. The answer must be out there. Or, perhaps, hidden within the pages of the secret files.
