1969 and Then Some: A Memoir of Romance, Motorcycles, and Lingering Flashbacks of a Golden Age

Robert Wintner

1969 and Then Some: A Memoir of Romance, Motorcycles, and Lingering Flashbacks of a Golden Age by Robert WintnerThe year when everything needed to be experienced and tried, when innocence was tempted, played, and lost.

1969 was that pivotal year for the baby boomers. Young and innocent, they were given the ultimate freedoms and were faced with growing up.

This touching, hilarious memoir is the true story of a late sixties grand tour of Europe—a life-defining parable, for those who remember and for those who can't. Never before and not since have a handful of seasons so exquisitely defined the difference between right and wrong. With the gift of youth they saw, sensed, and savored the laughably clear distinction...

46 Days Adrift: A True Story

Barry Donnelly

46 Days Adrift: A True Story by Barry DonnellyImagine yourself... adrift in a four-metre tinnie in the shark-infested waters of the Pacific Ocean - lost and seemingly forgotten - shark bait! Ben Tooki, his uncle and a friend were caught in a storm off the island of Kiribati and swept out to sea. For forty six days they were adrift with little food or water. There's a storm shapin' up; it's been gettin' to full on all day. We hear the rumbling noise. It sounds like the music of a digeridoo, a kind of humming sound. "What's that noise, it's getting louder?" "It's comin' in our direction!" The wave grows into a giant bulge in the ocean. Lifts...

A Bike Ride

Stanley Sprocket

A Bike Ride by Stanley SprocketJoin Stanley Sprocket for a 5 day cycle ride across France. Using a simple road map, without a tent or a sleeping bag, a mobile phone or a watch, Stanley proves to himself that roughing it in cardboard houses, en-route, is perhaps every bit as grim as you think it could be.

A Curious Life for a Lady: The Story of Isabella Bird

Pat Barr

A Curious Life for a Lady: The Story of Isabella Bird by Pat Barr

Isabella Bird was a woman of remarkable gifts. In 1872, at the age of forty, this rather earnest daughter of a country parson abandoned the rectory nest and began her pioneering journeys to some of the most inhospitable corners of the world. Undismayed by discomfort or danger she was to spend almost thirty years travelling - to the Rocky Mountains, the Sandwich Isles, to Japan, Malaya, Kashmir and Tibet, to Persia, Korea and China - where an indomitable spirit, an unassuming cordiality and, above all, a limitless capacity for being interested won her universal welcome. Her accounts of her experiences...

On April 1, 2009, brave 23-year-old Sarah Outen embarked on an ambitious solo voyage across the Indian Ocean in her rowing boat, Dippers.

A Labyrinth of Kingdoms: 10,000 Miles through Islamic Africa

Steve Kemper

A Labyrinth of Kingdoms: 10,000 Miles through Islamic Africa by Steve Kemper

A true story that rivals the travels of Burton or Stanley for excitement, and surpasses them in scientific achievements.

In 1849 Heinrich Barth joined a small British expedition into unexplored regions of Islamic North and Central Africa. One by one his companions died, but he carried on alone, eventually reaching the fabled city of gold, Timbuktu. His five-and-a-half-year, 10,000-mile adventure ranks among the greatest journeys in the annals of exploration, and his discoveries are considered indispensable by modern scholars of Africa.

Yet because of shifting politics, European preconceptions...

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

Robert M. Utley

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...

A Man Most Driven: Captain John Smith, Pocahontas and the Founding of America

Peter Firstbrook

A Man Most Driven: Captain John Smith, Pocahontas and the Founding of America by Peter Firstbrook"A nuanced account of the English captain saved by Pocahontas reveals an astonishingly complicated personality. Former BBC producer Firstbrook finds in the roguish, quarrelsome, fearless adventurer Capt. John Smith a sterling example of the tenacious early-American character…. Exciting historical tales with romantic overtones." - Kirkus Reviews

Everyone knows the story of Pocahontas and how she saved John Smith. And were it not for Smith's leadership, the Jamestown Colony would surely have failed. Yet Smith was a far more ambitious explorer and soldier of fortune than these tales suggest—and...

A Place Beyond: Finding Home in Arctic Alaska

Nick Mr. Jans

A Place Beyond: Finding Home in Arctic Alaska by Nick Mr. JansIn A Place Beyond, Nick Jans leads us into his "found" home-the Eskimo village of Ambler, Alaska, and the vast wilderness around it. In his powerful essays, the rhythms of daily arctic life blend with high adventure-camping among wolves, traveling with Iñupiat hunters, witnessing the Kobuk River at breakup. The poignancy of a village funeral comes to life, hordes of mosquitoes whine against a tent, a grizzly stands etched against the snow-just a sampling of the images and events rendered in Jan's transparent, visual prose. Moments of humor are offset by haunting insights, and by thoughtful...

A Sense of the World: How a Blind Man Became History's Greatest Traveler

Jason Roberts

A Sense of the World: How a Blind Man Became History's Greatest Traveler by Jason Roberts

He was known simply as the Blind Traveler. A solitary, sightless adventurer, James Holman (1786-1857) fought the slave trade in Africa, survived a frozen captivity in Siberia, hunted rogue elephants in Ceylon, helped chart the Australian outback—and, astonishingly, circumnavigated the globe, becoming one of the greatest wonders of the world he so sagaciously explored. A Sense of the World is a spellbinding and moving rediscovery of one of history's most epic lives—a story to awaken our own senses of awe and wonder.

A Texas Cowboy: or, Fifteen Years on the Hurricane Deck of a Spanish Pony

Charles A. Siringo

A Texas Cowboy: or, Fifteen Years on the Hurricane Deck of a Spanish Pony by Charles A. SiringoAfter a nomadic childhood, Charles Siringo signed on as a teenage cowboy for the noted Texas cattle king, Shanghai Pierce, and began a life that embraced all the hard work, excitement, and adventure readers today associate with the cowboy era. He "rid the Chisholm trail," driving 2,500 heads of cattle from Austin to Kansas; knew Tascosa-now a historic monument-when it was home to raucous saloons, red light districts, and a fair share of violence; and led a posse of cowboys in pursuit of Billy the Kid and his gang. First published in 1885, Siringo's chronicle of his life as a itchy-footed boy,...
