This is the story of how Jonathon crossed the Greenland icecap with no previous polar training, his serendipitous meeting with three Irish adventurers that would change his life forever, and how he confirmed his place in history as a member of the first Irish team to ski to the...

A Search in Secret Egypt

A Search in Secret Egypt by Paul BruntonIn this book, philosopher Paul Brunton (1898-1981) encounters the mysteries and magic of Egypt in the 1930s, including an eerie yet illuminating night spent alone inside the Great Pyramid. Alongside his explorations of ancient Egypt's monuments and gods, Brunton encounters a variety of occultists, fakirs, and dervishes, and even manages to become initiated into the deadly art of snake charming. His frank interviews with Muslim leaders remain relevant today, and his description of the Hajj reflects the beauty and inspiring faith of Mohammad's true followers. Brunton's journey to discover the...

Lost and Gone Away

Lost and Gone Away by Lynn JennerBetween 2010 and 2014 Lynn Jenner made several related emotional and intellectual investigations. Lost and Gone Away is the record of these: a fascinating, ambitious hybrid text of nonfiction, prose poems and poetry. The book traverses the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake; samples and sifts through the lost and recovered detritus of the ancient world; radiates its attention out from that epicentre of loss, the Point Last Seen, from which all searches begin; and quietly, devastatingly, explores how one might think and write about the Holocaust, from far away. An excavation of loss, in four...

Great Soul of Siberia: Passion, Obsession, and One Man's Quest for the World's Most Elusive Tiger by Sooyong ParkIn The Great Soul of Siberia, renowned tiger researcher Sooyong Park tracks three generations of Siberian tigers living in remote southeastern Russia.

At the same time, he draws from twenty years of experience and research to focus on the Siberian tigers' losing battle against poaching and diminishing habitat. Over the two years of his harrowing stakeout, Park's...

Extreme Adventure: An Epic Journey to the North Pole

Extreme Adventure: An Epic Journey to the North Pole by Vida Amor de PazThis book and the associated movie started with my 2007 visit to the Maya forest. From there I took off to the North Pole. This extreme journey was necessary to test my hypothesis that climatic changes that led to the decline of many ancient Maya cities have much in common with the climatic changes we face today. To support this theory, I interviewed geographers, archeologists, anthropologists, as well as many equally renowned scientists. Humbly, I have written these lines, wishing to share my research. Through this book, I expect my readers to sense my heartfelt beliefs. This is really my voice!...
