A Childhood Dream. A Lost Land. The Journey of a Lifetime. How do you become an explorer? It's a question every child has asked. And, Steve Backshall was no different. But after a rainy-day visit to an exhibition of artefacts from Papua New Guinea, it was a question that began to obsess the seven-year old Backshall. Due to this childhood interest, the vast, untamed wildness of Papua New Guinea was where Backshall forged his unlikely path. From crushing lows of early failures to the extraordinary highs of the BBC's Lost Land of the Volcano expedition, it was this dark island which gave Backshall his opportunity. Full of incredible wildlife, extraordinary wilderness, jungles, cannibals, pitfalls, triumph, danger and excitement, Looking for Adventure is the irresistible, inspiring story of a little boy who let his heart rule his head.

Two of the world's most popular children's books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1864) and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There (1871) by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), are also the favorites of adults, who find profound observations in their delightful "nonsense." Carroll's education as a minister and a mathematician influenced his creation of stories that play upon common notions of wisdom, logic and reality. His humorous prose and verse fashion a world in which the familiar and expected are suddenly turned upside down. In her dream journeys Alice encounters fanciful creatures and situations--the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, a tea party where it is always six o'clock--that challenge her assumptions about how the world is ordered, or whether it is ordered at all. Alice is in turn delighted and discouraged by the reversal of familiar rules in the places she visits; she is intrigued to meet such wondrous characters as live chessmen and yet confused about her own place in a world inhabited by usually inanimate objects. Generations of readers have been as entertained and puzzled as Alice herself when trying to understand Wonderland and the world behind the looking-glass. Donald Rackin's study of Carroll's masterpieces examines how, in addition to being classic works of entertainment and imagination, the Alice books address issues that concerned mid-Victorians on the brink of the modern era. Alice, a character representative of the assumptions, fears, and desires of her time, encounters a fast-paced, confusing, and disorderly world where rules do not apply, where inanimate objects come alive, and where everyone seems to be rushing but going nowhere. In many ways, the worlds Alice encounters are exaggerated versions of the evolving modern society that many Victorians feared. In chapters that explore the historical context, critical reception and interpretation of the Alice books, Rackin demonstrates how Carroll used fantasy and "nonsense" to mirror the frightening reality of a world transformed by mechanization, changing class relations, capitalism, and religious doubt. Rackin's study illuminates the texts by revealing how they are essentially concerned with the modern search for meaning in a rapidly changing and seemingly "mad" world, providing perspective on how these "nonsense" books explore fears and desires that are common to many generations. Rackin's study, the first book-length analysis of these works is over 50 years, will be welcomed by students and scholars of Victorian literature and culture.

Their names are J.J. and Valentine Watts, but I’m not sure if they’re actually brothers or not. They make a friend; her name is Trudi de la Rosa. She’s a wannabe detective-type too, but honestly, she’s less of an idiot than the brothers. The three of them team up to solve a mystery that takes place in a snowy chateau up in the mountains. It gets more complicated around chapter 11, but now you’ve got the main gist of it. The story’s full of intrigue and adventure and puzzles and light violence and some swear words. It’s really entertaining. Just buy the book and start reading. You’ll understand everything about the Ghost Hunters Adventure Club very soon.

Simon Yates, author of Against the Wall, takes us back to his early years as a climber - the escapades and excitement of a young life lived on the edge and for the moment, when experience was all-important and dramatic achievements and failures came as naturally as the hair-raising risks themselves. A mountaineering travelogue of dazzling variety, The Flame of Adventure moves from the camaraderie of deprived Russian climbers in the little-known peaks in the Tien Shan to the awesome experience of the North Face of the Eiger, from a rumbustious motorbike ride across Australia with a psychotic lorry driver. We meet a remarkable gallery of climbers, from Doug Scott to Joe Simpson, and, when not exploring high mountains, we enter the bizarre world of rope access workers: mavericks balancing high above building sites on the London skyline.

Waterfall: Don't Look Down is not a step-by-step how-to book for marriage restoration. It's really just 66,000 words that could simply be summed up with, "Shut up and let me fix this. Love, God." Waterfall: Don't Look Down was written for the woman who just found out her husband cheated or the man who had to listen to his wife say, "I love you, but I'm not in love with you." Its purpose is to give biblical hope to the desperately lonely Christian who wants to stay in a broken marriage when the world says to run away. The Christian who has just been betrayed or abandoned needs to understand God hates divorce and his promise and plan is to heal broken homes. That person needs to know if they submit themselves and their marriage restoration to Jesus, it won't be easy. It may actually be almost impossible . . . almost! I'm a Christian woman who decided to allow Jesus to fix the mess my husband and I created in our marriage. Using journal entries I kept after finding out about my husband's affair, allows the reader a uniquely transparent view of the ugly journey to self-accountability, forgiveness, and marriage restoration. The journals also highlight non-fiction events where I was allowed to witness God's communication in ways that cannot be excused away as coincidental. I got to feel his presence, see his interventions, hear his voice, and witness his miracles. My only purpose in writing this book is to let hurting spouses know they have a choice. They can either allow Satan the opportunity to finish what they started by destroying their marriage, home, and family or give the whole mess over to Jesus and then just pray, shut up, and wait. Hurting Christians know Jesus is the answer, but they are desperately seeking someone to tell them the blessings are worth the pain and the wait. Waterfall: Don't Look Down can do just that.

In this third instalment of The History Teacher trilogy, John Stevens, the history teacher, takes a trip to Estonia where he is drawn into an extraordinary adventure of hope and intrigue! Intent on changing the course of human history, an international group of do-gooders gathers in this tiny Eastern European country to map out a strategy for change! First, though, they must overcome the power structures and attitudes meant to maintain the global status quo. All too often, people ask what we as individuals can do to contribute to meaningful change, feeling too uninformed and powerless to take direct action! The History Teacher, Adventure in Estonia provides simple guidance on how spiritual consciousness and divine love can overcome this dilemma! It transends country, cultural, racial, religious and gender borders to remind us that we are all in this together, sharing a common source and purpose. The story also examines one of the great challenges of human evolution, the steadfast and sometimes violent resistance to change. Similar to the first two editions of this trilogy, the protagonist receives guidance on his journey through dreams, angel visits and synchronistic encounters, amidst a delightfully informative blend of spirituality, history and rock n' roll.
