DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A passionate, thought provoking exploration of walking as a political and cultural activity, from the author of the memoir Recollections of My Nonexistence Drawing together many histories--of anatomical evolution and city design, of treadmills and labyrinths, of walking clubs and sexual mores--Rebecca Solnit creates a fascinating portrait of the range of possibilities presented by walking. Arguing that the history of walking includes walking for pleasure as well as for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit focuses on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from philosophers to poets to mountaineers. She profiles some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction--from Wordsworth to Gary Snyder, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet to Andre Breton's Nadja--finding a profound relationship between walking and thinking and walking and culture. Solnit argues for the necessity of preserving the time and space in which to walk in our ever more car-dependent and accelerated world.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

What does it mean to be out walking in the world, whether in a landscape or a metropolis, on a pilgrimage or a protest march? In this first general history of walking, Rebecca Solnit draws together many histories to create a range of possibilities for this most basic act. Arguing that walking as history means walking for pleasure and for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit homes in on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from the peripatetic philosophers of ancient Greece to the poets of the Romantic Age, from the perambulations of the Surrealists to the ascents of mountaineers. With profiles of some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction - from Wordsworth to Gary Snyder, from Rousseau to Argentina's Mother of the Plaza de Mayo, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet to Andre Breton's Nadja - Wanderlust offers a provocative and profound examination of the interplay between the body, the imagination, and the world around the walker.

A charming British hero, the woman who tempts him, and a hands-off arrangement that's oh-so-hard to maintain... My bags are packed and I'm ready to go. All I have to do is board a plane, and I'll be on my way to fulfilling a promise I made long ago. Bonus points -- my last week in Paris looks to be even better when I meet a gorgeous, clever American woman and make plans to take her back to my flat that night. But before we can get together for what would surely be a fantastic final fling, my boss hits me with a double whammy. My previous client didn't pay, so the trip's postponed, and the new client I now desperately need is none other than the tempting American I'm about to take home. Time to keep my hands to myself. And as I do, we get to know each other while we wander the streets of Paris together, where I discover she's witty, kind and has a delicious zest for life. Trouble is, I'm taking off for the other side of the world any day now. What could go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Everything, if one of you is leaving...

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Wanderlust is the story of Audrey Driscoll. Orphaned young, Audrey has grown up caring for her eccentric millionaire grandfather and her demanding younger sister, Annabelle, who assume she will always be there for them. Sheltered yet restless, responsible beyond her years yet hungering for experience, Audrey is hopelessly bound until she herself makes the daring decision to leave. As the 1930s unfold, alone, camera in hand, she will shock friends and outrage family as she plunges headlong into the wider world. Crossing the Atlantic aboard the luxurious Queen Mary, Audrey meets James and Violet Hawthorne, who will draw her into a sophisticated circle of artists and expatriates. And it is they who will introduce her to Charles Parker-Scott, in who Audrey will come to recognize a twin soul, a man propelled by relentless curiosity and driven by conflicting needs for intimacy and independence. Together they will spend an exquisite summer at Cap d'Antibes, then board the Orient Express on an adventure that will carry them to a remote outpost in China. But at the farthest reaches of this journey Aubrey must choose again. Japan has attacked China. Charles knows he must return to Europe at once. But Audrey becomes involved with a besieged orphanage and decides to remain in China without Charles, caring for the abandoned children until help arrives. In time Audrey will return to America with a daughter of her own. While she must come home to San Francisco to confront a world irrevocably changed by time, she finds she cannot stay. From prewar Germany to London during the Blitz, from a wrenching reunion with Charles to a war zone in North Africa, again and again she must choose between the dictates of her conscience and the yearnings of her heart. For Audrey Driscoll and the men and women whose lives touch hers, wanderlust is the inescapable element. Born at a time when women were expected to stay close to home and fulfill traditional roles, Audrey is compelled to follow the thread of events that will destroy the complacency of the past and shape the future. From Europe to China, from San Francisco to North Africa, she is irresistibly drawn into a man's world of conflict, discovery, and danger. In a vivid novel of breathtaking scope, Danielle Steel has once again surpassed herself in creating an unforgettable tale of men and women caught in the tides of personal drama and historic event. Wanderlust is Danielle Steel's finest journey.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Spanning fifteen years of travel, beginning when she is a sophomore in college, Wanderlust documents Elisabeth Eaves’s insatiable hunger for the rush of the unfamiliar and the experience of encountering new people and cultures. Young and independent, she crisscrosses five continents and chases the exotic, both in culture and in romance. In the jungles of Papua New Guinea, she loses herself—literally—to an Australian tour guide; in Cairo, she reconnects with her high school sweetheart, only to discover the beginning of a pattern that will characterize her life over the long-term: while long-distance relationships work well for her, traditional relationships do not. Wanderlust, however, is more than a chronological conquest of men and countries: at its core, it’s a journey of self-discovery. In the course of her travels, Eaves finds herself and the sense of home she’s been lacking since childhood—and 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.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Seeking fortune & adventure, two young German Canadians, Art and Ernie Barz, were down to their last dollars when they reached Dawson City in 1937. A year later, aided by some of Yukon's leading citizens, the Barz brothers chartered four plane-loads of huskies, equipment, and supplies to the Territory's remote Bonnet Plume region. Seeking to avoid the expensive non-resident trapper's licence fees, the brothers convinced the authorities that they were miners. Instead, they set up one of the largest clandestine fur-trapping operation in the Canadian north. In time, they became legal trappers and ran Chappie's Trading Post near the confluence of the Bonnet Plume and Peel Rivers. During their five years in Yukon, they met some of the Territory's larger-than-life characters, and explored its vast, pristine wilderness. Yukon Wanderlust weaves the Barz brothers' stories, their photographs, and related historical events into a fascinating chronicle of a vibrant, yet overlooked period of Yukon history.

We are constantly looking for fresh and intriguing things, and our brain makes completely new information "stand out."

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Could an American woman, already a grandmother, enjoy living her life in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a country known as one of the world’s most repressive societies? A country with a vision of women and their freedoms different from what she was accustomed to? What the author found there, instead, were magical days, sand dunes reaching to the sky, unforgettable encounters, renown Bedouin hospitality, and a new love. All these new experiences led to a path of awareness and self-confidence that gave a new color to the life of a woman who wasn’t finished exploring the world and learning from it. Find in these pages a new perspective on Saudi Arabia and a woman’s rebirth in the beauties of a country too often considered devoid of wonders. As a child, Ava Kabouchy was fascinated by world maps, which later turned into travels to many parts of the world. She has worked in several African countries, created a microcredit group for women in Honduras, and did a volunteer photography gig for a clinic for a Mayan community in a remote mountainous region of Guatemala. Recently, she hiked along the Camino de Santiago in Spain and in France, and traveled in Morocco, fulfilling a childhood dream of walking barefoot in the Sahara. Saudi Arabia was never on Ava’s list of travel destinations, but when she was offered a teaching position in Riyadh, she immediately knew that she would accept it. Already a grandmother when she left for Riyadh, she found new friends, adventures she could never have imagined, love, and a new lease on life. Ava is the author of the recently published Where in the World is Grammie Now?, a book for young readers to teach them about Saudi Arabia, a country not often studied in middle school curricula. The book also encourages other Grammies not to listen to what they say, but to go see. Ava makes her home in southwest France and on a remote island off the coast of Maine, USA.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This book is the true story of my quest to live as a free spirit for a year of my life, mentally, physically and sexually. The year is 1975, I was 24 and I had abandoned a marriage and walked away from a secure job as a BBC make-up artist. Where in the modern world would I find the wide open horizons that I sought? How would I live? Would I share the adventure? The ocean, a boat and an open relationship provided my answers. Travelling with no fixed itinerary, no advance reservations, no return ticket and no fixed destination. We became true free spirits open to the dictionary’s definition of adventure: ‘one who lives on his wits. Risk. A remarkable happening.' My mood was at odds with the rest of the country. After the previous year’s three day week, strikes and Harold Wilson’s minority government, Britain was bracing itself for Denis Healey’s tough new budget. I was about to sail away from all this, but what lay ahead could be much worse and certainly carried more risk. Restless, excited, optimistic and definitely naive I did it anyway. There is a phrase, "be careful what you wish for as it might come true"
