Michael Palin's New Europe starts with a simple idea: that only a couple of hours from home are a half of Europe that is for him as unknown and unexplored as the plateau of Tibet or the vastness of the Sahara. Cut off for most of his life by Cold Wars and Iron Curtains, Europe's eastern lands are now open for business and Michael sets off to discover them. Visiting 20 countries, more than in his Himalaya and Sahara journeys combined, he encounters painful memories and exuberant celebrations. Throwing himself into local life with his usual reckless curiosity, he samples pig fat with a brandy chaser, meets Romanian lumberjacks, drives the 8.58 stopping train from Poznan to Wolsztyn, learns about mine-clearing in Bosnia, treads the catwalk at a Budapest fashion show and watches Turkish gents wrestling in olive oil. It's New Europe, but vintage Palin. Contact us: [email protected]

This is the story of their unprecedented trek along the northwestern edge of the Pacific Ocean-a year-long journey through some of the most rugged terrain in the world and their encounters with rain, wind, blizzards, bears, and their own emotional and spiritual demons. Erin and Hig set out from Seattle with a desire to raise awareness of natural resource and conservation issues along their route: Clear-cut logging of rainforests; declining wild salmon populations; extraction of mineral resources; and effects of global climate change. By taking each mile step by step, they were able to intimately explore the coastal regions of Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska, see the wilderness in its larger context, and provide a unique on-the-ground perspective. An entertaining and, at times, thrilling adventure, theirs is a journey of discovery and of insights about the tiny communities that dot this wild coast, as well as the individuals there whom they meet and inspire.

Get an audiobook in full for free: http://wbpa.us/3/b01mskazn7 Written by: Charles L. Schiereck Length: 4 hrs and 6 mins Language: English In the long hot summer of '88, the author packed up his motorcycle and pulled out of the garage with no destination or return date in mind.

Yosemite National Park, Sierra National Forest, Fresno & King's Canyon Audiobook
Get an audiobook in full for free: http://wbpa.us/3/b00niyyg3c Written by: Matt Purdue Length: 3 hrs and 42 mins Language: English This guide, drawn from our complete guide to the Sierra Nevada, focuses on Yosemite, Sierra National Forest, King's Canyon, Fresno and their surroundings. Twenty-five million years ago, Yosemite Valley was a lush lowland bordered by gentle hills. Half Dome's ancestor was only 1,500 feet tall. The river was sluggish as it flowed through the valley. The land was subtropical and rain frequently drenched the valley. The river eventually carved a 20,000-foot, V-shaped canyon as it rushed toward the sea. Twelve million years later, a huge uplift of the region occurred and snow capped the highest peaks. Erosion removed the soil above the granite base and a cool climate changed the environment as hardwood and evergreen trees began to grow, and possibly the first sequoias. The region began to look like what we see today. Today, the park occupies 1,169 square miles. The valley is about seven miles long and three-quarters of a mile wide in other words, 1% of the park. There are 196 miles of primary roads and 800 miles of trails in the park; much of it is accessible to motorists and hikers. The main entrance to Yosemite Valley is made from the west through the dark Wawona Tunnel. After the road breaks into bright sunshine, El Capitan rears to 3,000 feet above the pine and fir-clad slopes above the valley on your left side. As you continue through the valley, Bridalveil Falls seems to emerge from the side of a mountain on your right, its mistlike water pouring 620 feet. It reaches its peak flow in May when warm temperatures dissolve the snows of winter. This remarkable guide details everything you need to know about exploring Yosemite and the surrounding parks and forests not just the major tourist sites, but many unforgettable places few tourists ever discover. Everything you need to know about the many, many hiking and biking trails is here, as well as the beautiful rivers and lakes, the rock-climbing, the fishing, where to stay, where to eat and much more.

In the course of her travels, Eaves finds herself and the sense of home shes been lacking since childhoodand she sheds light on a growing culture of young women who have the freedom and inclination to define their own, increasingly global, lifestyles, unfettered by traditional roles and conventions of past generations of women.
