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.

A Walk In The Woods, Bill Bryson
16 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.

17 Bill Bryson Down Under
Black Swan 233715 Great Britain 2001 055299703X / 9780552997034 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket It is the driest, flattest, hottest, most desiccated, infertile and climatically aggressive of all the inhabited continents and still Australia teems with life - a large portion of it quite deadly. In fact, Australia has more things that can kill you in a very nasty way than anywhere else. Ignoring such dangers - and yet curiously obsessed by them - Bill Bryson journeyed to Australia and promptly fell in love with the country. And who can blame him? The people are cheerful, extrovert, quick-witted and unfailingly obliging: their cities are safe and clean and nearly always built on water; the food is excellent; the beer is cold and the sun nearly always shines. Life doesn't get much better than this... 397 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel::Travel & Exploration; Travel & Places; ISBN: 055299703X.

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.
