A Dirt Cheap (and Different) World

A Dirt Cheap (and Different) World by Hugh HoschThis book is a collection of some of my own personal adventures during the period of the late 1950s to early 1960s before things began really changing from what was essentially a pre-World War II world. All the stories are true. A very few of them, and some of my accompanying illustrations, have appeared previously, but the overwhelming majority are original for this book. I hope you enjoy them all.

Heroic Failure and the British

Heroic Failure and the British by Stephanie BarczewskiFrom the Charge of the Light Brigade to Scott of the Antarctic and beyond, it seems as if glorious disaster and valiant defeat have been essential aspects of the British national character for the past two centuries. In this fascinating book, historian Stephanie Barczewski argues that Britain's embrace of heroic failure initially helped to gloss over the moral ambiguities of imperial expansion. Later, it became a strategy for coming to terms with diminishment and loss. Filled with compelling, moving, and often humorous stories from history, Barczewski's survey offers a fresh way of thinking...

Accidentally Istanbul: Decoding Turkey for the enquiring Western traveller

Accidentally Istanbul: Decoding Turkey for the enquiring Western traveller by Nancy Knudsen

Nancy Knudsen never meant to go to Istanbul.

Maybe she might have included it as part of a holiday along with other dazzling European cities such as Venice, Paris or Salzburg. But the idea of actually living in a Muslim country as an ordinary citizen rather than tourist or expat corporate executive, would never have occurred to her.

Knudsen??s story is vivid, lively and sometimes hilarious, full of insights into things she wished she??d known before she arrived in an all-black apartment above a sports field, with not a word of Turkish. She found almost nothing in guidebooks or histories to help...

Above all, however, was his passion for adventure, the hunt, and his dealings with Native Americans in the waning light of the late nineteenth century in Dakota Territory.

A born observer, Allen describes a world that, by the...

Empire Maker: Aleksandr Baranov and Russian Colonial Expansion into Alaska and Northern California

A native of northern Russia, Alexander Baranov was a middle-aged merchant trader with no prior experience in the fur trade when, in 1790, he arrived in North America to assume command over Russia??s highly profitable sea otter business. With the title of chief manager, he strengthened his leadership role after the formation of the Russian American Company in 1799. An adventuresome, dynamic, and charismatic leader, he proved to be something of a commercial genius in Alaska, making huge profits for company partners and shareholders in Irkutsk and St. Petersburg while receiving scandalously little...

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.

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!...

A Life Wild and Perilous: Mountain Men and the Paths to the Pacific

A Life Wild and Perilous: Mountain Men and the Paths to the Pacific by Robert M. UtleyEarly in the nineteenth century, the mountain men emerged as a small but distinctive group whose knowledge and experience of the trans-Mississippi West exted the national consciousness to continental dimensions. Though Lewis and Clark blazed a narrow corridor of geographical reality, the West remained largely terra incognita until trappers and traders--Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Tom Fitzpatrick, Jedediah Smith--opened paths through the snow-choked mountain wilderness. They opened the way west to Fremont and played a major role in the pivotal years of 1845-1848 when Texas was annexed, the Oregon...
