Product Description

In his debut travelogue, Michael Desrosiers tells the story of a journey overland across the Kingdom of Cambodia, a small, rural, and often-overlooked corner of Southeast Asia.<br /><br />The journey is unforgettable, but not always pleasant. Along the way he and his incredibly patient girlfriend contend with wild monkeys, a raging Typhoon, baguettes, jellyfish, and the dastardly "twerking bug".<br /><br />Part old-school travelogue, part portrait of a foreigner's view of a country, "The Long Road From Pub Street" is at times lighthearted and at other times introspective. Michael Desrosiers never takes himself too seriously as a writer or a traveler, but seeks to examine the country around him with an open mind.<br /><br />This book seeks to convey a sense of time and place. Explore the mysteries, magic, tragedy, and beauty of the "Kingdom of Wonder".

A journey in space and time, halfway between adventure and anthropology. Curiosity is the driving force in this story, the story of an exploration that starts on April 22nd 1886, when a young Italian anthropologist from Florence, Elio Modigliani, lands on Nias island (Sumatra), home of headhunters who at that time made mincemeat of Dutch colonizers and military expeditions sent there to «teach them a lesson».<br />Yet, Modigliani explored the island’s wildest regions, making his way through tribal wars, slave merchants and epidemics, developing a deep empathy for other cultures, and came back to tell the story, bringing a fabulous collection of ethnographic and naturalistic specimen for Italian museums. <br />Why did the headhunters spare his life? More than a century later, Vanni Puccioni, another Florentine, followed Modigliani’s tracks in those villages where he had been (and where little has changed) seeking the descendants of Chiefs and warriors to get their side of the story, hoping to find the key to his survival..

<b>This superb edition of <i>The South Pole</i> contains all of the original and essential photographs, charts, maps and appendices from the Amundsen expedition.</b> <br /><br /><br /> <br />This book chronicles the epic journey of Roald Amundsen and his team of hand-picked sailors, from the moment the journey was conceived to the triumphant conclusion and acclaim. The South Pole remains a classic chronicle of exploration and adventure for its detail, descriptions and thoroughness. Amundsen successfully captures both the moments of excitement and action, the day-to-day struggles, and the routines undertaken by the men who undertook the dangerous journey. <br /><br /><br /> <br />In the detailed chapters, we hear of the difficulties the men encountered during their crossing of the icy wastes of the Antarctic. Amundsen's first expedition - which almost ended in fatal disaster - is much detailed, as are the valuable lessons the team picked up in this perilous brush with death. The painstaking preparations and establishment of the base camp is noted, while Amundsen's use of sled dogs and skis are demonstrated as vital for the group's eventual success. <br /><br /><br /> <br />The expedition was imperiled by the limits of their technology; including clothes comprised of animal furs; their ship - the Fram - whose ice-breaking capacities were far inferior to those of the modern day; and the lack of sophisticated navigation tools. Furthermore the route which Amundsen took was across the previously uncharted Axel Heiberg Glacier; fortuitously, the flatter terrain offered a straightforward means of passage. <br /><br /><br /> <br />The moment of triumph as the group finally reached the South Pole of the Earth is tempered by the reminder that they must traverse the glacier again on the return trip. Several of the sled dogs were killed for their meat during the trek home. Remarkably there were no human fatalities, a fact which only increased the admiration and laudatory sentiments from the leaders of the time. <br /><br /><br /> <br />The Amundsen expedition was one of the most famous of its era, being as it marked the first time a human had ever reached the South Pole. Tragically the rival Scott expedition - which ran concurrently with Amundsen's - resulted in the death of most of the expedition members, including Scott himself.

<b><i>A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf</i> is a classic travelogue by John Muir, charting his journeys through Kentucky, Tennessee, the Deep South, the Florida Keys and Cuba.</b> <br /><br /><br /> <br />Taking place in the late nineteenth century, we hear exquisite detail of the countryside in each of the locales. The hanging mosses of Georgia, towering pines and vast marshes of Florida's Everglades region; the rugged foothills of the Cumberland Mountains; and the leisurely scene of Havana harbour are but a few of the destinations Muir tours and vividly describes. <br /><br /><br /> <br />This book contains the original early photographs of the locales described, with specimens of tree and the landscapes depicted together with rivers and settlements. All chapters are presented complete with Muir's original notes, and it is through the author's concise observations that this travelogue retains a unique identity of its own. <br /><br /><br /> <br />A superb historical record, <i>A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf</i> acts as a valuable reference for those who wish to learn about the countryside and topography of the southeastern United States and Cuba. Much of this information remains useful and relevant, while Muir's accounts of human society shines a light on society as it stood at the time. This edition further enhances the historical value, by including Muir's original photographs, illustrations, and a map his publisher appended in the first edition.

<DIV><B>International Bestseller: The famed travel writer and author of <I>In Patagonia</I> traverses Australia, exploring Aboriginal culture and song—and humanity’s origins. </B><BR /><BR /> Long ago, the creators wandered Australia and sang the landscape into being, naming every rock, tree, and watering hole in the great desert. Those songs were passed down to the Aboriginals, and for centuries they have served not only as a shared heritage but as a living map. Sing the right song, and it can guide you across the desert. Lose the words, and you will die.<BR />  <BR /> Into this landscape steps Bruce Chatwin, the greatest travel writer of his generation, who comes to Australia to learn these songs. A born wanderer, whose lust for adventure has carried him to the farthest reaches of the globe, Chatwin is entranced by the cultural heritage of the Aboriginals. As he struggles to find the deepest meaning of these ancient, living songs, he is forced to embark on a much more difficult journey—through his own history—to reckon with the nature of language itself.<BR />  <BR /> Part travelogue, part memoir, part novel, <I>The Songlines</I> is one of Bruce Chatwin’s final—and most ambitious—works. From the author of the bestselling <I>In Patagonia</I> and <I>On the Black Hill</I>, a sweeping exploration of a landscape, a people, and one man’s history, it is the sort of book that changes the reader forever.<BR />  <BR /><I>This ebook features an illustrated biography of Bruce Chatwin including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.</I><BR />  </DIV>
