Though most eBooks are simple conversions of paper books, the "eNotated Sailing Alone" is a completely new approach that takes advantage of the potential eBook technology offers to extend and enrich Slocum’s writing in a way that’s convenient to use while still unobtrusive to the reader.<br /><br />Based on the 1901 edition of "Sailing Alone Around the World" and including more than 60 original illustrations, this eNotated edition extends Slocum’s writing by providing a new layer of information behind the text the reader can access before, during, and after each chapter.<br /><br />For instance, in Chapter 15, when Slocum writes, “Taking things by and large as sailors say…,” Thomerson’s eNotation tells us Slocum means “Overall, or in most cases” and that “Sailing ‘by’ means toward the wind, sailing ‘large’ means away from the wind. Hence ‘by and large’ encompasses most of the possible options and implies ‘most of the time’”.<br /><br />Joshua Slocum was the first person to sail solo around the world and his account of the voyage is adventure writing at its best - but his colorful story telling is filled with 19th century sailing terms, geographical references, and idioms that may be lost to the modern reader. Chris Thomerson, a lifelong sailor and student of maritime history, provides the background and explanations readers need to thoroughly understand, appreciate, and enjoy Slocum’s classic by adding hundreds of electronic annotations linked to words and phrases in Slocum’s original text.<br /><br />If you are going to read Slocum for the first time - or reread him after some years - you will best enjoy and most throughly understand him with this unique eNotated edition.

Prologo<br /><br /> Este libro es parte de mi historia personal, en él narro lo que Dios ha hecho durante mis cuarenta años de vida, el motivo de hacerlo público mi amado lector, es expresar basado en la experiencia personal, que Dios mismo interviene en la vida de sus hijos disciplinándolos para bien, y que todas las cosas que nos suceden son permitidas por Dios para que cada día lleguemos a la estatura del Varón Perfecto, que nuestro buen Dios quiere para nosotros sus hijos; y para aquellos que no son hijos aún, los invito a ser parte de la familia de Dios, aceptando en sus corazones a nuestro amado Jesucristo como su Señor y único Salvador personal, iniciando así la búsqueda primeramente del reino de Dios y su Justicia, con la promesa de que las demás cosas os serán añadidas.<br /> Quiero decirte amado lector, que Dios tiene control de todo y eso incluye a sus hijos, El permite que vayamos por diferentes senderos en la vida, dándonos convicción que el siempre estará para ayudarnos, que nunca nos dejará y nunca nos abandonará, y si nos equivocamos y nos volvemos a él, él nos perdonará, haciendo memorias de sus muchas misericordias a través de su gracia que es en Cristo Jesús Señor nuestro.<br /> Espero que esta pequeña historia pueda llevarte a la necesidad de tener una relación íntima con el creador y sustentador del universo, El Señor de Señores, Jesucristo. Amen<br />

Man-eater is a common term for an animal that preys upon humans. This does not include scavenging. Although human beings can be attacked by many kinds of animals, man-eaters are those that have incorporated human flesh into their usual diet. Most reported cases of man-eaters have involved tigers, leopards, lions and crocodiles. However, they are by no means the only predators that will attack humans if given the chance; a wide variety of species have also been known to take humans as prey. <br /><br />ATTACKED BY A KING COBRA.<br />ALADDIN'S CAVE.<br />THE TERROR OF HUNSUR.<br />THE TERROR OF HUNSUR II.<br />AN ADVENTURE WITH A BOA.<br />THE ONE EYED MAN EATER.<br />A MAN EATING WOLF BOY.<br />SEEALL, THE WOLF BOY.<br />THE WHITE TIGER.<br />THE FATE OF THE AHNAY PAYEE.<br />THE BANDYPORE MAN EATER.<br />THE KODERMA MAN EATER.<br />TRAPPING A MAN EATER.<br />THE MAN EATER OF BELKHERA.<br />A NOTORIOUS MAN EATER.<br />TUG OF-WAR WITH A LEOPARD.<br />MISSED BY AN INCH.<br />A FIGHTING TIGER.<br />A NIGHT FRIGHT.<br />CARRIED OFF BY A TIGER.

<b>How far would you go for love? ... Would you tempt fate?</b><br /><br /><b>In this romantic adventure, written by the world's most feminine Aussie Alpha Male, readers are taken on a grey journey - from light to dark - to a place where 'happily ever afters' aren't always neat and tidy. Fans of 'Eat, Pray, Love' beware ... this tale bites back.</b><br /><br /><br />At thirty years of age, an unemployed and relationship-weary Matt Kyler decides to abandon his long-suffering partner in search of fame, fortune and guilt-free fornication. His reward for this bastard act of selfishness is an invite to work on a hit television show. <br /><br />But if fortune favours the brave then misfortune is sure to find the cowardly Kyler. And before long his perfect new life begins to unravel, taking with it his masculinity, self-confidence and good humour.<br /><br />Desperate for spiritual guidance, he visits a tarot card reader. But instead of finding solace, he finds disaster at every turn and is, ultimately, reminded that there are two women in his life - one of whom he must not hurt. <br /><br />But which woman? <br /><br />The beautiful co-worker he is convinced will lead him to a better future? <br />Or the past love he is so determined to run from? <br /><br />In confusion, the vulnerable Kyler decides to take destiny into his own hands. Quitting his dream job, he embarks on a prophetic adventure of love through India, where he is exposed to a continent of contrasts and a collection of characters with dysfunctional lives that rival his own. <br /><br />He also discovers, somewhat inconveniently, the devastating truth behind his own broken life.<br /><br />The Bikini Prophecy is a hilarious travelogue of the heart; an unhinged adventure about love, loss, India ... and one man's date with fate. <br /><br /><br /><br /><b>Please note:</b> This story is published in three (3) parts of about 35,000 words each. Sign up to the author's newsletter to receive your free copy of part two and three upon release - www.mattkyler.com/newsletter<br /><br /><b>***These books contain swearing and adult concepts that may be distressing to some readers.***</b><br /><br />

The story of a young couple who, without any prior sailing experience, decide one night over too many drinks that they are going to sail around the world. One year later they are bobbing around in the Bahamas on a thirty-five foot catamaran teaching themselves how to cross oceans in a small boat.<br /><br />Along their way they meet amazing people, visit locations only accessible by those on their own yachts, become television actors in Australia, minor celebrities in Puerto Rico, and generally have a great time of it all.<br /><br />They aren't your average cruisers by any stretch of the imagination, and run afoul of what most cruisers perceive to be "real" cruisers. But for four years they sailed around the world on their own terms.<br /><br />This is their story, and is essential reading for anybody who has ever had the dream to sail around the world. This book just might push you over the edge, and the horizon.
