Planes, Trains & Elephants, Brian Thacker
4 Brian Thacker Planes, Trains & Elephants
Allen & Unwin 241207 Australia 2006 Reprint 1741148677 / 9781741148671 Softcover Good Condition Whether you're an explorer or a tourist, the journey often proves more exciting than the place you eventually end up at. Not to mention more alarming, spectacular, dangerous or farcical. It's all pretty closely connected with the mode of transport you're dependent on - from stubborn mule to bumpy hovercraft to ancient plane. Brian Thacker has been on the look-out for unusual vehicles ever since he travelled down the Ovens River on a rubber inner tube when he was nine years old. Here he writes about his most memorable journeys, including his trip on the Trans Siberian Express, a pub crawl on the London tube, his journey down the east coast of Australia in a truck, and a safari with a particularly grumpy camel. 268 pages.

Desperately afraid, consumed by hatred for the white man, Tandia at last finds refuge in a brothel deep in the veldt. There, she learns to use her brilliant mind and extraordinary looks as weapons for the battles that lie ahead; she trains as a terrorist. Then Tandia meets a man with a past as strange as her own. An Oxford undergraduate, Peekay is also the challenger for the world welterweight boxing championship - and a white man. And in a land where mixed relationships are outlawed, their growing love can only have the most explosive consequences ... 900 pages. Light tanning to page edges.
