2009 0752450204 / 9780752450209 TRADE PAPERBACK Used; Very Good 
The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: VERY GOOD. Around 1800 Lettice Sweetapple lived in West Overton, Wiltshire, between Avebury and Marlborough. Her house looked across the River Kennet to the chalk downs and southwards to woods once part of the Savernake Forest.

Peter Fowler and his team of archaeologists, historians and scientists have investigated the landscape of the parishes of West Overton and Flyfield over 39 years, not merely as local history but as a microcosm of the English countryside. In setting out to answer the question How has this landscape come to look as it does? , they have made use of fieldwork, aerial photography, excavation, old maps and documents, geophysics and numerous analytical techniques on everything from standing buildings to flecks of charcoal. The resulting mountain of information contradicts the persistent myth of the unchanging English countryside.

Ring of Ice True Tales of Adventure, Exploration, and Arctic Life, Peter Stark
9 Peter Stark Ring of Ice True Tales of Adventure, Exploration, and Arctic Life
2004 1592281362 / 9781592281367 TRADE PAPERBACK Used; Good 
Well into the nineteenth century, Arctic explorers believed that they needed only to smash their ships through a ring of ice encircling the top of the globe, and from there they could tack easily on soft breezes to the North Pole. Acting on this belief, these adventurers were crushed by ice, wasted by scurvy, and frozen to death on the ice floes. This European notion of the Arctic as a ring of ice surrounding a void not only lured countless sailors to their deaths, but also had the effect of drowning out the voices and the visions of the native Arctic people. Now this vibrant collection celebrates both the unheard voices of the Arctic peoples and the trail of words left by the Europeans who pushed forward to fill the hole in their knowledge of the world. Spanning the years from 1741 to the present, RING OF ICE presents many such works, including the story of Captain Tyson and his crew who, marooned by their own shipmates, were forced to float precariously on a tiny iceberg for five months before being rescued. And the tale of Duncan Pryde, a fur trader employed by the Hudson's Bay Company, who finds himself unwittingly caught up in the Inuit tradition of wife exchange. Juxtaposed with these European tales are stories of survival, skill, and daily life among the Inuit, as told through dozens of native poems and legends, as well as by some of today's best writers, including Finn Lynge and Rachel A. Qitsualik. RING OF ICE is a comprehensive and altogether unique anthology presenting the colorful history of the monochromatic Arctic landscape.

The Prairie Traveler: A Handbook For Overland Expeditions, Randolph B. Marcy
11 Randolph B. Marcy The Prairie Traveler: A Handbook For Overland Expeditions
Skyhorse Publishing, Inc. 2014 1628736666 / 9781628736663 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
First published in 1859, The Prairie Traveler was the indispensable book for looking to follow the American dream, pull up stakes, head into the wilderness of the frontier, and build a new life out West. With the official blessing of the US War Department, Randolph Marcy, a captain in the US Army, published The Prairie Traveler as the ultimate guide for these pioneers, covering everything from the best way to move wagons over hostile terrain and what to pack, to describing over thirty-four different trails to be taken and the dangers one may face on the way. Captain Marcy also passes on the knowledge he gained from local Indian tribes, from how to cook and wage war to their subtle tribal differences and customs. The Prairie Traveler stands as an important piece of early American literature, and as a fascinating presentation of the now-lost Wild West: its perils, its rewards, and ultimately, the achievements of those who worked hard to survive. Captain Marcy?s guide remains the essential guide for those who wish to discover the trials and tribulations of the early pioneers of America, and it is an indispensable addition to any historical collection. About the Author: Randolph Barnes Marcy was a career officer in the United States Army, achieving the rank of brigadier general before retiring in 1881. Marcy's 1859 book, "The Prairie Traveler, " has been called one of the most important works in making possible the great Western overland migration of United States settlers in the last half of the nineteenth century. He died in 1887.

One For The Road: Revised Edition, Tony Horwitz
13 Tony Horwitz One For The Road: Revised Edition
Vintage 1999 0375706135 / 9780375706134 TRADE PAPERBACK Used; Very Good 
Vintage 1999. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. Jacket Condition: none. Small remainder mark Swept off to live in Sydney by his Australian bride, American writer Tony Horwitz longs to explore the exotic reaches of his adopted land. So one day, armed only with a backpack and fantasies of the open road, he hitchhikes off into the awesome emptiness of Australia's outback. What follows is a hilarious, hair-raising ride into the hot red center of a continent so desolate that civilization dwindles to a gas pump and a pub. While the outback's terrain is inhospitable, its scattered inhabitants are anything but. Horwitz entrusts himself to Aborigines, opal diggers, jackeroos, card sharks, and sunstruck wanderers who measure distance in the number of beers consumed en route. Along the way, Horwitz discovers that the outback is as treacherous as it is colorful. Bug-bitten, sunblasted, dust-choked, and bloodied by a near-fatal accident, Horwitz endures seven thousand miles of the world's most forbidding real estate, and some very bizarre personal encounters, as he winds his way to Queensland, Alice Springs, Perth, Darwin--and a hundred bush pubs in between. Horwitz, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of two national bestsellers, Confederates in the Attic and Baghdad Without a Map, is the ideal tour guide for anyone who has ever dreamed of a genuine Australian adventure.
