Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road by Neil Peart (.M4B)

Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road by Neil Peart
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 433 MB
Overview: In less than a year, Neil Peart lost both his 19-year-old daughter, Selena, and his wife, Jackie. Faced with overwhelming sadness and isolated from the world in his home on the lake, Peart was left without direction. That lack of direction lead him on a 55,000 mile journey by motorcycle across much of North America, down through Mexico to Belize, and back again. He had needed to get away, but he had not really needed a destination.
His personal odyssey is chronicled with his travel adventures, meeting up with friends and family, and the grieving, thinking, crying, and storytelling of life as he rides. Along the way, he plays music from his internal jukebox, yet nothing seems to let him find peace. And without peace, all he could do was keep riding until he found it.

Banyan Tree Adventures: Travels in India by Keith Forrester

Banyan Tree Adventures: Travels in India by Keith Forrester
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.4MB
Overview: Drawing upon his own travel experiences and those of others, Keith Forrester interrelates travel writing, tourism and serious commentary to produce an account of the delights, challenges and excitement of visiting old and new India.

Banyan Tree Adventures: Travels in India is not the usual travelogue or tourist guide to India. It is a book that not only discusses the Indian experiences and views of non-domestic travellers in their explorations and adventures, but also a text that helps understand the simple question of why tourists keep returning to the country.

What is it about India that prompts the interest and loyalty of returning tourists? Where do they go and why? What areas do tourists visit and what aspects of Indian culture, policy and history interests them? How do overseas tourists cope with and understand the shocking evidence of poverty while travelling around the country? Few countries embody the blending of tradition and the ancient with the new and the modern.

So yes, it is a good time to be interested in and thinking about India. It’s an even better time to be travelling around the country.

Travels in a Thin Country by Sara Wheeler

Travels in a Thin Country: A Journey Through Chile by Sara Wheeler
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.1 MB
Overview: Squeezed between a vast ocean and the longest mountain range on earth, Chile is 2,600 miles long and never more than 110 miles wide–not a country that lends itself to maps, as Sara Wheeler discovered when she traveled alone from the top to the bottom, from the driest desert in the world to the sepulchral wastes of Antarctica. Eloquent, astute, nimble with history and deftly amusing, Travels in a Thin Country established Sara Wheeler as one of the very best travel writers in the world.

Travels in Cultural Nihilism by Stephen Pax Leonard

Travels in Cultural Nihilism: Some essays by Stephen Pax Leonard
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 393 KB
Overview: In 2015, the magnitude of the migration crisis was such that the future of Sweden, the country that had welcomed more migrants than any other country (on a per capita basis) and that is frequently described by the UN as the ‘best country to live in in the world’, looked less than certain. Its neighbour, Norway, began preparing for its collapse. And yet, the majority of Swedes approved apparently of the changes imposed on their model society.

The essays in this book attempt to deconstruct the ideology of this liberalist multiculturalism. However, the essays’ thematic focus reaches far beyond Sweden, addressing topics as diverse as political correctness, the psycho-cultural problem of groupthink, the threat of Islamism, infringements on the freedom of speech and the flawed democracy of a federalist Europe. What ties all the essays together is an urgent need for a new kind of green conservative thinking that can more effectively challenge the discourse of globalisation, the ideology of liberalism and that can prioritise the local over the global.

Evaluation: In 2015, the magnitude of the migration disaster used to be such that the way forward for Sweden, the rustic that had welcomed extra migrants than another nation (on a in step with capita foundation) and that’s incessantly described via the UN because the ‘easiest nation to reside in on the earth’, seemed not up to sure. Its neighbour, Norway, started getting ready for its cave in. And but, nearly all of Swedes licensed it seems that of the adjustments imposed on their type society.

The essays on this guide try to deconstruct the ideology of this liberalist multiculturalism. Alternatively, the essays’ thematic focal point reaches some distance past Sweden, addressing subjects as numerous as political correctness, the psycho-cultural drawback of groupthink, the specter of Islamism, infringements at the freedom of speech and the unsuitable democracy of a federalist Europe. What ties the entire essays in combination is an pressing want for a brand new more or less inexperienced conservative pondering that may extra successfully problem the discourse of globalisation, the ideology of liberalism and that may prioritise the native over the worldwide.

Goner: The Final Travels of UG Krishnamurti by Louis Brawley

Goner: The Final Travels of UG Krishnamurti by Louis Brawley
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 543 KB
Overview: Louis Brawley met UG Krishnamurti in 2002 and spent the following five years travelling with him in the USA, India and Europe keeping a record of this remarkable non-teacher and documenting his own inner struggles as his ideas about life, love and Enlightenment were constantly tossed around and demolished. Louis fell into the role of foil and sidekick to UG’s bizarre interactions with his friends and audience and, as UG’s health deteriorated, he became his informal caregiver.

Louis Brawley doesn’t use honeyed platitudes to tell the story of a sage and his devoted follower; instead he tells an often unflattering story of his own struggles and shortcomings and the dynamic uncertainties of life with a man who “tore apart everything human beings have built up inside and out for centuries.”

Goner will teach you the meaning of the phrase “paradoxical truth”. UG Krishnamurti gave up everything for truth, but delighted in ridiculous fabrications; he was a teacher who refused to teach, a man who mocked do-gooders but was deeply kind; he was chaste but foul mouthed, he was a man who decried the supernatural . yet there were strange coincidences around him. “.the way he lived, his living quarters and his mode of expression were one continuous movement, a three dimensional, living book of teaching. If you were observant, you could learn from him on contact with no need for explanation.”
