The beauty and variety of the hill, the weather and the wildlife were and are an inspiration to him, and his descriptions...

Call Me Chameleon: The selective memory of a kaleidoscopic-eyed globetrotter, from age 3 to this day

Call Me Chameleon: The selective memory of a kaleidoscopic-eyed globetrotter, from age 3 to this day by Albert RussoTo write an autobiography is a feat that is difficult, painful, and often feels foreign due to the fact that most of the stories have already been told in various forms through fiction, essays and poetry. In addition, I knew that this was Albert's chance to let it all hang out, so-to-speak. The nice chameleon has its nasty sides -- as we all do -- and some of the anger would be sure to leak out in such a book. (A coming to terms, one might say.) And finally, this project has scared me shitless because here he -- the chameleon -- finally reveals himself (often times through his all-too-frank...

Ladies of the Field: Early Women Archaeologists and Their Search for Adventure

Ladies of the Field: Early Women Archaeologists and Their Search for Adventure by Amanda AdamsThe first women archaeologists were Victorian era adventurers who felt most at home when farthest from it. Canvas tents were their domains, hot Middle Eastern deserts their gardens of inquiry and labor. Thanks to them, prevailing ideas about feminine nature — soft, nurturing, submissive — were upended. Ladies of the Field tells the story of seven remarkable women, each a pioneering archaeologist, each headstrong, smart, and courageous, who burst into what was then a very young science. Amanda Adams takes us with them as they hack away at underbrush under a blazing sun, battle swarms of biting...

La Salle: Explorer of the North American Frontier

La Salle: Explorer of the North American Frontier by Anka MuhlsteinRobert Chevalier de la Salle, the French historian Anka Muhlstein writes, stands indisputably among Europe's most accomplished explorers. In the 1670s and '80s he crossed over most of what is now French Canada and the middle United States and charted the length of the Mississippi River--almost always traveling on foot, almost always under dangerous circumstances. Thanks to his pioneering travels, in the next century "America seemed destined to be French, until the Seven Years' War in Europe resulted in a reordering of the New World." La Salle would not live to see this turnabout. Murdered by...
