<b>At once an incredible adventure narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait, <i>The River of Doubt</i> is the true story of Theodore Roosevelt’s harrowing exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth.</b><br /><br />The River of Doubt—it is a black, uncharted tributary of the Amazon that snakes through one of the most treacherous jungles in the world. Indians armed with poison-tipped arrows haunt its shadows; piranhas glide through its waters; boulder-strewn rapids turn the river into a roiling cauldron.<br /><br />After his humiliating election defeat in 1912, Roosevelt set his sights on the most punishing physical challenge he could find, the first descent of an unmapped, rapids-choked tributary of the Amazon. Together with his son Kermit and Brazil’s most famous explorer, Cândido Mariano da Silva Rondon, Roosevelt accomplished a feat so great that many at the time refused to believe it. In the process, he changed the map of the western hemisphere forever.<br /><br />Along the way, Roosevelt and his men faced an unbelievable series of hardships, losing their canoes and supplies to punishing whitewater rapids, and enduring starvation, Indian attack, disease, drowning, and a murder within their own ranks. Three men died, and Roosevelt was brought to the brink of suicide. <i>The River of Doubt</i> brings alive these extraordinary events in a powerful nonfiction narrative thriller that happens to feature one of the most famous Americans who ever lived.<br /><br />From the soaring beauty of the Amazon rain forest to the darkest night of Theodore Roosevelt’s life, here is Candice Millard’s dazzling debut.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

<p>"Gripping and superb. This book will steal the night from you." —Laurence Gonzales, author of <em>Deep Survival</em></p><br /><p>On January 17, 1913, alone and near starvation, Douglas Mawson, leader of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, was hauling a sledge to get back to base camp. The dogs were gone. Now Mawson himself plunged through a snow bridge, dangling over an abyss by the sledge harness. A line of poetry gave him the will to haul himself back to the surface.</p><br /><p>Mawson was sometimes reduced to crawling, and one night he discovered that the soles of his feet had completely detached from the flesh beneath. On February 8, when he staggered back to base, his features unrecognizably skeletal, the first teammate to reach him blurted out, "Which one are you?"</p><br /><p>This thrilling and almost unbelievable account establishes Mawson in his rightful place as one of the greatest polar explorers and expedition leaders. It is illustrated by a trove of Frank Hurley’s famous Antarctic photographs, many never before published in the United States.</p>

<DIV><B>The classic memoir of Africa, aviation, and adventure—the inspiration for Paula McLain’s <I>Circling the Sun </I>and “a bloody wonderful book” (Ernest Hemingway).</B><BR /><BR />  Beryl Markham’s life story is a true epic. Not only did she set records and break barriers as a pilot, she shattered societal expectations, threw herself into torrid love affairs, survived desperate crash landings—and chronicled everything. A contemporary of Karen Blixen (better known as Isak Dinesen, the author of <I>Out of Africa</I>), Markham left an enduring memoir that soars with astounding candor and shimmering insights.<BR />  <BR /> A rebel from a young age, the British-born Markham was raised in Kenya’s unforgiving farmlands. She trained as a bush pilot at a time when most Africans had never seen a plane. In 1936, she accepted the ultimate challenge: to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean from east to west, a feat that fellow female aviator Amelia Earhart had completed in reverse just a few years before. Markham’s successes and her failures—and her deep, lifelong love of the “soul of Africa”—are all told here with wrenching honesty and agile wit.<BR />  <BR /> Hailed as “one of the greatest adventure books of all time” by <I>Newsweek</I> and “the sort of book that makes you think human beings can do anything” by the<I> New York Times, West with the Night</I> remains a powerful testament to one of the iconic lives of the twentieth century.<BR />  </DIV>

By turns humorous and harrowing, his journey allows him to overcome his fears while reflecting on the man he’s meant to be. His adventure weaves a route through some of America's wildest landscapes and history, and is told with insight, humour and reflection.</p><p>Perhaps he too will tame the most renowned long-distance hiking trail in the world, and emerge as a thru-hiker.</p><p></p><p></p><p></p>

<b>Featured on Good Morning America, the front page of Cosmopolitan.com, Travel + Leisure, POPSUGAR, Harper's Bazaar, Good Housekeeping, Redbook, HelloGiggles, Woman's Day, and Country Living.</b> <br /><br /> After purchasing one-way flights from New York City to Paris, Kyle James and his girlfriend Ashley quit their day jobs, planned futures, and daily paradigms to see as much of the world as they could. In 114 days, they trekked across 15 countries and 38 cities with nothing but their backpacks, their smartphones, and each other. <i>Not Afraid of the Fall</i> is the unvarnished story of their off-the-cuff journey: from cliff-jumping off Croatia's untouched coasts, to bathing with rescued elephants in Thailand; from crashing mopeds on gravelly mountain roads in Santorini, to hitchhiking with strangers in rental cars in Hungary. <br /><br /> Part travel memoir, part love letter to those staring at the walls of a corporate cubicle, <i>Not Afraid of the Fall</i> is an inspiring book that captures the sweet mysteries of life on the road and an empowering narrative for anyone who has ever uttered the words "maybe next year."

A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for the Wilcox family. To triumph, they must rebuild their boat on a remote Pacific island. Damage sustained on the reef and a lack of resources haunt them the rest of the way around the world as they face daunting obstacles, including wild weather, pirates, gun boats, mines and thieves, plus pesky bureaucrats and cockroaches as stubborn as the family. Without a working engine and no way to communicate with the outside world, they struggle to reach home before their broken rig comes crashing down and they run out of food in a trial that tests them to their limits.

If you're Mike McIntyre, you might meet...<br /><br />A biker-turned-minister who shares faith, food, and self-defense tips with a stranger on the road...<br /><br />A lady firefighter who used to be a man...<br /><br />A lonely woman who offers a place to spend the night, and in the morning feels the loss of yet another man who leaves her...<br /><br />Stuck in a job he no longer found fulfilling, journalist Mike McIntyre felt his life was quickly passing him by. So one day he hit the road to trek from one end of the country to the other with little more than the clothes on his back and without a single penny in his pocket.<br /><br />Through his travels, he found varying degrees of kindness in strangers from all walks of life--and discovered more about people and values and life on the road in America than he'd ever thought possible.<br /><br />The gifts of food and shelter he received along the way were outweighed only by the touching gifts of the heart--the willingness of many he met to welcome a lonely stranger into their homes...and the discovery that sometimes those who give the most are the ones with the least to spare.<br /><br /><b>"A truly heartening book, one that restores one's faith not just in the road, but in the openness and humanity of the people of this country."--<i>Salon</i></b><br /><br /><b>"A superb writer...Something about McIntyre and his quest makes people want to feed him, pray for him, reveal their innermost torments to him."--<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /><br /><b>"Captivating."--<i>San Jose Mercury News</i></b><br /><br /><b>"An incredible journey."--CBS News</b>

<h2>What could possibly go wrong in paradise?</h2> <br />Tired of mortgage payments, thirty-something Andrew and Gwynn sold nearly everything they owned but their Siamese cat and escaped their humdrum nine-to-five existence for life in paradise—a tiny island accessible only by boat or air in one of the remotest spots on Earth: the Okavango Delta in Botswana. <br /><br />Woefully inexperienced, they took control of a luxury game lodge where the rich and famous went to sip G&Ts with lions and elephants. <br /><br />Trouble soon followed. <br /><br />Their lives were threatened daily by snakes, elephants, baboons, and a hyena with a plastic fetish. Not to mention the endless—and often insurmountable—challenge of keeping their five-star guests fed in a world where the closest supermarket was an air flight away. <br /><br />Amongst others, their guests included a famous Hollywood director, some French aristocrats, a Mafia lawyer, world-famous singers, and the England cricket captain. <br /><br />Light-hearted and humorous, this adventure—peppered with some drama and suspense—will enthrall you with its unique look at life as game lodge managers in wild Africa.<br />

<b>Master the art of fully living, one life goal at a time.</b><br /><br />Do you want to experience your one life—your whole life—to its fullest measure?<br /><br />In this stirring book, author, blogger and lifestyle entrepreneur, Tal Gur offers his own transformational journey as an inspiring example and practical guide to implementing the art of fully living to its fullest potential. You’ll learn how to actualize your potential by forging all aspects of your life through the process built into your life goals. <br /><br />Once you discover “the art of fully living,” there is no going back; it will feel unacceptable to settle for less than your dreams—and what’s more, you’ll dream even more wildly, aspiring to action with greater clarity of purpose, broader horizons of possibility, and holistic vision across all areas of your life. <br /><br />The very structure of this book models Tal’s immersive approach to goal-driven living: each chapter of The Art of Fully Living is dedicated to a year of focus—socializing, fitness, freedom, contribution, love, adventure, wealth, relationship, spirituality, and creativity—and follows Tal’s endeavors as he works toward fulfilling 100 life goals in only 10 years. <br /><br />This daunting ambition, springing from one late-night conversation among friends and a gnawing discontentment within the typical “success” story, becomes extremely relatable through Tal’s bold storytelling; what’s more, the deep lessons learned become immediately applicable for your own purposes as Tal thoughtfully extracts the actionable wisdom from his own experiences to articulate the principles and techniques of “the art of fully living.”<br /><br />The Art of Fully Living takes you along the exhilarating ride of Tal’s journey while illuminating your own possible life-goal trajectory: as Tal relates how he socialized nonstop in vibrant Melbourne to master English and trained intensively to complete Ironman New Zealand and practice ancient Thai martial arts, you’ll learn how to apply immersion to achieve your own life goals; as Tal describes how he eliminated his crushing student debt in one year and attained financial and location independence, you’ll learn how to simplify your life, recognize your own present wealth, and turn your passions into a living; and as Tal animates his experiences learning to surf and salsa, to drum in a troupe and compose electronic music, and to write this very book, you’ll learn how to let your intuition be your guide, reveal your authentic core, and achieve flow—among the myriad other adventures and take-aways that fill this book. <br /><br />Tal not only introduces the idea that the art of fully living is another skill to master but also guides you through honing this skill with chapter lessons and actionable key takeaways.<br /><br />This is especially for you if you find yourself frustrated often, feeling low, or if you’re struggling while asking yourself “What do I REALLY want?”<br /><br /><li>You will find your calling.</li><br /><li>You will define your life goals.</li><br /><li>You will discover how to leverage your strengths to achieve your dreams.</li><br /><li>You will know what it means to be truly free.</li><br /><li>You will be fulfilled by the path you have chosen to take from this point on.</li><br /><br />Can you imagine what the world would be like if everyone discovered and did what made them feel <b>fully alive</b>? <br /><br />Your dreams are your dreams for a reason; they are rooted in your deepest understanding of who you want and can become. It’s up to you to follow though, to trust in your vision enough to persist until it becomes a reality, part of the world and part of who you are becoming. Your inspiration is meant to be, and you can make it so through the “art of fully living.” <br /><br /><h2>Follow this inspirational journey and master the art of fully living by scrolling up and clicking the BUY NOW button at the top of this page!</h2><br /><br />
