The Well at the World's End, A. J. Mackinnon
1 A. J. Mackinnon The Well at the World's End
Black Inc Books 231015 Australia 2010 1863954767 / 9781863954761 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition When A.J. Mackinnon quits his job in Australia, he knows only that he longs to travel to the Well at the World's End, a mysterious pool on a remote Scottish island whose waters, legend has it, hold the secret to eternal youth. Determined not to fly ('It would feel like cheating'), he sets out with a rucksack, some fireworks and a map of the world and trusts chance to take care of the rest. By land and by sea, by train, truck, horse and yacht, he makes his way across the globe - and through a series of hilarious adventures. He survives a bus crash in Australia, marries a princess in Laos, is attacked by Komodo dragons and does time in a Chinese jail. The next lift - or the next near-miss - is always just a happy accident away. This is the astonishing true story of a remarkable voyage, an old-fashioned quest by a modern-day adventurer. 298 pages.

Eothen, A.W. Kinglake
2 A.W. Kinglake Eothen
Collins Clear-Type Press 227026 London 1935 Hardcover Good Condition Good "My favorite travel book. Sparkling, ironic, and terrific fun." -- Jan Morris Eothen ("From the East") recaptures a bold young Englishman's exploits in the Middle East during the 1830s. Alexander William Kinglake recounts his rambles through the Balkans, Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Palestine, and Egypt in a style radically different from other travel books of his era. Rather than dwelling on art or monuments, Kinglake's captivating narrative focuses on the natives and their cities. His adventures ? populated by Bedouins, pashas, slave-traders, monks, pilgrims, and other colorfully drawn personalities ? include crossing the desolate Sinai with a four-camel caravan and a sojourn in plague-ridden Cairo. A contemporary of Gladstone at Eton and of Tennyson and Thackeray at Cambridge, Kinglake offers a frankly imperialistic worldview. "As I felt so have I written," he declares in his preface, and his forthright expressions of his thoughts and impressions range in mood from confessional, to comic, to serious, to romantic. Victorian readers were captivated by Kinglake's chatty tone and his uncompromising honesty, and two centuries later this remarkable travelogue remains funny, fresh, and original. 318 pages. The publication date given above is an estimate only, there being no date given in the book. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

A Walk In The Woods, Bill Bryson
17 Bill Bryson A Walk In The Woods
Black Swan 231149 Great Britain 1998 0552997021 / 9780552997027 Softcover Good Condition David Cook The longest continuous footpath i the world, the Appalachian Trail stretches along the East Coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine, through some of the most arresting and celebrated landscapes in America. At the age of forty-four, in the company of his friend Stephen Katz (last seen in the bestselling Neither Here Nor There), Bill Bryson set off to hike through the vast tangled woods which have been frightening sensible people for three hundred years. Ahead lay almost 2,200 miles of remote mountain wilderness filled with bears, moose, bobcat, rattlesnakes, poisonous plants, disease-bearing ticks, the occasional chuckling murderer and - perhaps most alarming of all - people whose favourite pastime is discussing the relative merits of the external-frame backpack. Facing savage weather, merciless insects, unreliable maps and a fickle companion whose profoundest wish was to go to a motel and watch The X-Files, Bryson gamely struggled through the wilderness to achieve a lifetime's ambition - not to die outdoors. Foxing to outer page edges. 350 pages. Tanning to pages. Illustrator: David Cook. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel; Travel & Places; ISBN: 0552997021.

Notes from a Small Island, Bill Bryson
18 Bill Bryson Notes from a Small Island
Black Swan 231215 Great Britain 1998 0552996009 / 9780552996006 Softcover Good Condition After nearly two decades in Britain, Bill Bryson, the acclaimed author of such best-sellers as The Mother Tongue and Made in America, decided it was time to move back to the United States for a while. This was partly to let his wife and kids experience life in Bryson's homeland - and partly because he had read that 3.7 million Americans believed that they had been abducted by aliens at one time or another. It was thus clear to him that his people needed him. But before leaving his much-loved home in North Yorkshire, Bryson insisted on taking one last trip around Britain, a sort of valedictory tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. His aim was to take stock of modern-day Britain, and to analyze what he loved so much about a country that had produced Marmite, zebra crossings, and place names like Farleigh Wallop, Titsey, and Shellow Bowells. With characteristic wit and irreverence, Bill Bryson presents the ludicrous and the endearing in equal measure. The result is a hilarious social commentary that conveys the true glory of Britain. 352 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Monarch Books 226908 Great Britain 2007 0825461529 / 9780825461521 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket For centuries the Ark was central to Jewish worship. It contained the tablets of the Law, Aaron's Rod, samples of manna. During the march from Sinai towards the Promised Land, the Ark went before the people. When the Ark was finally placed in the Holy of Holies "the glory of the Lord ...filled the house of the Lord." But what happened to the Ark? In 586 BC the Babylonians burst into Jerusalem and ransacked Solomon's Temple. Did they take, or destroy, the Ark? Was it stolen by the Greeks, the Roman, the Egyptians, the Templars? Charles Foster traces the possible route of the Ark through the ancient Near East, Ethiopia, Ireland and a field near Coventry,on foot, camelback, in a Ford Fiesta and several light aircraft, exploring its possible fates and why it continues to compel interest. 224 pages.
