The True Tale of 7 Countries, 4 Arrests, 3 Name Changes, 2 Escapes, 1 War, a Terrorist Attack and … an Entertainment Pimp.<br /><br />For years, the call of Africa has echoed in Dashiel’s heart. Finally, he can deny it no longer. He and his wife decide to sell everything, pack up the kids, and follow his dream to Africa. But before the move, he realizes that emotionally he wants—no, needs—his father to understand his reasons for leaving. Just as he is about to broach the subject, his father launches into the story of his own dream, as a teenager in Jamaica, of becoming an American. His father’s fascinating tale of narrow escapes, love and war, and unwavering trust in the helping hand of the Universe becomes a guiding light for Dashiel on his journey in Africa . . . and in life.<br /><br />This is Africa is an account of these symmetrical quests, sixty years apart, which Dashiel Douglas artfully interweaves into one uproarious, inspiring, and unforgettable story. Through his adventures in Africa, Dashiel not only quells his ever-searching heart—with the help of an assortment of outlandish characters and the side-splitting observations he makes along the way—but also unwittingly discovers the ultimate treasure of any journey.

Living the American Dream at the pinnacle of his life, R.W. Long had it all: a loving family, a promising career, and a multitude of blessings. All of this was cut short with the diagnosis of an incurable disease. In the prime of life, he lost nearly everything he had worked for and felt he was given a life sentence and incarcerated in his own body—a body that no longer obeyed his commands and that would fail him in new ways daily.<br /><br />For eight years, the struggle wore him down, nearly to the point of no return. Then came the phone call in the dead of night from a war-torn country half a world away.<br /><br />“Dad, I don’t think I’m going to make it out of here alive.”<br /><br />These words set in motion the most important mission of Long’s life: Learning to walk again in order to meet his son. What was once considered an impossibility was transformed into a goal and a mission.<br /><br />Set against the backdrop of the quest for Kilimanjaro’s summit, Push the Rock is the true story of faith, second chances, and the power of family to overcome life’s greatest challenges.

Frederick Courteney Selous 1851 – 1917 was a British explorer, officer, hunter, and conservationist, famous for his exploits in Southeast Africa. His real-life adventures inspired Sir H. Rider Haggard to create the fictional Allan Quatermain character. Selous was also a friend of Theodore Roosevelt, Cecil Rhodes and Frederick Russell Burnham. He was pre-eminent within a select group of big game hunters that included Abel Chapman and Arthur Henry Neumann. Going to South Africa when he was 19, he travelled from the Cape of Good Hope to Matabeleland, which he reached early in 1872, and where (according to his own account) he was granted permission by Lobengula, King of the Ndebele, to shoot game anywhere in his dominions.From then until 1890, with a few brief intervals spent in England, Selous hunted and explored over the then little-known regions north of the Transvaal and south of the Congo Basin, shooting elephants and collecting specimens of all kinds for museums and private collections. His travels added greatly to the knowledge of the country now known as Zimbabwe. He made valuable ethnological investigations, and throughout his wanderings—often among people who had never previously seen a white man—he maintained cordial relations with the chiefs and tribes, winning their confidence and esteem, notably so in the case of Lobengula. In 1890, Selous entered the service of the British South Africa Company, at the request of magnate Cecil Rhodes, acting as guide to the pioneer expedition to Mashonaland. Over 400 miles of road were constructed through a country of forest, mountain and swamp, and in two and a half months Selous took the column safely to its destination. He then went east to Manica, concluding arrangements which brought the country there under British control. Coming to England in December 1892, he was awarded the Founder's Medal of the Royal Geographical Society in recognition of his extensive explorations and surveys. <br /><br />Chapter I.<br />- Land at Algoa Bay<br />- Diamond Fields<br />- Trading Trip through Griqualand<br />- The Chief Manchuran<br />- Batlapin Village<br />- Bushman's Lair<br />- Klas Lucas, the Koranna Chief<br />- Bechuanas at Lange<br /><br />Chapter II.<br />- Seventy-eight Elephants shot<br />- Chief, Montsua<br />- Secheli<br />- Bamangwato First Giraffe-hunt<br />- Lost in the Veldt<br />- Tati Gold Fields<br />- Mashuna Diggings<br /><br />Chapter III.<br />- Massacre of a Tribe Lobengula, King of the Matabele<br />- Umziligazi<br />- Slaughter of the "Headmen"<br />- Battle of Zwang Indaba<br />- Terrible Adventure with a Lion<br />- Mashunas<br /><br />Chapter IV.<br />- Eland shot<br />- Abundance of Game<br />- Rain<br />- Hardship<br />- "Bill" and the Crocodile<br /><br />Chapter V.<br />-"Inxwāla" Dance<br />- Matabele War Dress<br />- Black Rhinoceros<br />- Bull Elephants<br />- Linquāsi Valley<br />- Hunting in the "Fly<br />- Varieties of Fauna<br />- Sable Antelope<br />- A "Skerm"<br />- A Grand Elephant-hunt<br />- Narrow Escape of a Kafir<br />...<br />continues with...

<p><strong>From Jeffrey Gettleman, a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist, comes a passionate, revealing story about finding love and finding a calling, set against one of the most turbulent regions in the world.</strong></p><p><br />A seasoned war correspondent, Jeffrey Gettleman has covered every major conflict over the past twenty years, from Afghanistan to Iraq to the Congo. For the past decade, he has served as the East Africa bureau chief for the <em>New York Times,</em> fulfilling a teenage dream.</p><p><br />At nineteen, Gettleman fell in love, twice. On a do-it-yourself community service trip in college, he went to East Africa—a terrifying, exciting, dreamlike part of the world in the throes of change that imprinted itself on his imagination and on his heart.</p><p><br />But around that same time he also fell in love with a fellow Cornell student—the brightest, classiest, most principled woman he’d ever met. To say they were opposites was an understatement. She became a criminal lawyer in America; he hungered to return to Africa. For the next decade he would be torn between these two abiding passions.</p><p><br />A sensually rendered coming-of-age story in the tradition of <em>Barbarian Days</em>, <em>Love, Africa</em> is a tale of passion, violence, far-flung adventure, tortuous long-distance relationships, screwing up, forgiveness, parenthood, and happiness that explores the power of finding yourself in the most unexpected of places.</p>

EVERY MOUNTAIN TOP IS WITHIN REACH IF YOU JUST KEEP CLIMBING - Barry Finlay<br /><br />It is January 16, 2009, and 60 year-old BARRY FINLAY and his son CHRIS are propped against a rock, struggling to draw a breath on their treacherous climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. Their destination is tantalizingly close, yet the weather and -- more importantly -- their health will determine the end result. Barry's backpack holds a Canadian flag with the names of over 200 donors mobilized by the climbers back home. The donors have contributed to providing classrooms and clean water for desperately deserving school children in Tanzania. For Barry, this is a life-changing physical, mental and spiritual adventure. Follow along as he and his son strive to climb one of the World's Seven Summits, meet the children who will benefit from their fundraising, and come to an understanding that one or two people really can make a difference. It is a journey that leaves the two with the lasting impression that nothing is more satisfying than reaching a goal and giving others the opportunity to achieve theirs.<br /><br />"If you're the kind of person who can usually find any excuse to talk yourself out of a great idea, this book is the inspiration you need to get out of your comfort zone and make things happen."<br />Helen Osler, author of Cameras of Kilimanjaro, Australia<br /><br /><br />

Whatever You Do, Don't Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide

Product Description

<DIV><DIV>A hilarious, highly original collection of essays based on the Botswana truism: “only food runs!” <i>With a new introduction and new material from the author</i><BR><BR>In the tradition of Bill Bryson, a new writer brings us the lively adventures and biting wit of an African safari guide. Peter Allison gives us the guide’s-eye view of living in the bush, confronting the world’s fiercest terrain of wild animals and, most challenging of all, managing herds of gaping tourists. Passionate for the animals of the Kalahari, Allison works as a top safari guide in the wildlife-rich Okavango Delta. As he serves the whims of his wealthy clients, he often has to stop the impulse to run as far away from them as he can, as these tourists are sometimes more dangerous than a pride of lions. <BR>No one could make up these outrageous-but-true tales: the young woman who rejected the recommended safari-friendly khaki to wear a more “fashionable” hot pink ensemble; the lost tourist who happened to be drunk, half-naked, and a member of the British royal family; establishing a real friendship with the continent’s most vicious animal; the Japanese tourist who requested a repeat performance of Allison’s being charged by a lion so he could videotape it; and spending a crazy night in the wild after blowing a tire on a tour bus, revealing that Allison has as much good-natured scorn for himself. <BR>The author’s humor is exceeded only by his love and respect for the animals, and his goal is to limit any negative exposure to humans by planning trips that are minimally invasive—unfortunately it doesn’t always work out that way!<BR><BR></div>New story: People often ask safari guides about the experience that frightened them the most. In this story Peter Allison tells of the time he became aware of unseen danger, and knew that somewhere within meters of him was a hunting lioness.<span> Peter Allison is originally from Sydney, Australia. His safaris have been featured in <i>National Geographic, Conde Nast Traveler</i>, and on television programs such as <i>Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures.</i> He travels frequently to speaking appearances, and splits most of his time between Botswana, Sydney, and San Francisco.<BR><BR></span><br /></div>
