    Stop the Train! I Want to Get On...

    Graham Hutchins fell in love with trains at an early age. Living in the railway town of Te Kuiti, he often gazed on the steaming monsters as they thundered through the King Country. Before long train travel became more than a pastime, more than a fascination: he was hooked. In his new book he recounts a journey he undertook alone on the night train to Auckland at the tender age of 10. From then on he travelled as much as he could, and later as a young man searched out the smaller forgotten lines to experience what they had to offer.
     
    'Stop the Train! I Want To Get On' describes journeys throughout both islands of New Zealand, on regular passenger trains, railcars, freight trains and work trains. The routes covered include the Central Otago line, the Gisborne Railcar, the Southerner to Invercargill, a mixed train through rural Taranaki, a worker’s train from Greymouth on the Rewanui Incline, the Endeavour to Hawke’s Bay and the Silver Fern Railcar. Many services have now been axed, but Graham Hutchins vividly recalls their delights, from the scenery outside to the often primitive conditions inside, along with memories of the people he met along the way. Sometimes alone, on other occasions with his mate Russell or his wife Jenny, he conveys the unique experience and sheer pleasure of rail travel in every corner of New Zealand, from the 1950s to the present day.

    Chile [golpeado]

    En estas crónicas aparece el Chile golpeado de ayer, ese país que pasó de la utopía al golpe; de la dictadura a la transición. Osorno, Valdivia, Temuco, Santiago, La Serena son ciudades que la escritora argentina María Moreno recorre un poco antes de las elecciones de 1970, traduciendo el mapa del viaje militante de su novio comunista.
    Unos años después regresa sola, en medio de la Unidad Popular, presencia la emblemática visita de Fidel, participa de las amistades solidarias que proliferaban en ese "diurno de Chile". El escritor mexicano Yuri Herrera llega por primera vez en 1997, para visitar a unos antiguos amigos, a un país que le parece "obliterado por militares, mala memoria y economistas armados hasta los dientes de Friedman; un país derrotado".
    Transcurre el último quinquenio de los noventa y los colores variopintos del consenso; también el revuelo del arresto de Pinochet en Londres y las primeras chispas de Lumaco, el "Chiapas chileno". Las consecuencias de esos episodios le parecen, en su segundo viaje, indicios de un inconsciente político activado con la revuelta estudiantil de 2011.

    When the great environmental writer Edward Abbey died in 1989, four of his friends buried him secretly in a hidden desert spot that no one would ever find. The final resting place of the Thoreau of the American West remains unknown and has become part of American folklore. In this book a young writer who went looking for Abbey’s grave combines an account of his quest with a creative biography of Abbey. 
    Sean Prentiss takes readers across the country as he gathers clues from his research, travel, and interviews with some of Abbey’s closest friends—including Jack Loeffler, Ken “Seldom Seen” Sleight, David Petersen, and Doug Peacock. Along the way, Prentiss examines his own sense of rootlessness as he attempts to unravel Abbey’s complicated legacy, raising larger questions about the meaning of place and home.

  • The North Pole - Its Discovery in 1909 under the auspices of the Peary Arctic Club - cover

    The North Pole - Its Discovery...

    Robert E. Peary

    Robert Edwin Peary, Sr. was born on May 6, 1856 in Cresson, Pennsylvania.  The early death of his father when Peary was 3 dictated that he and his mother moved to Portland, Maine.  His senior education took place at Bowdon College and he graduated in 1877 with a Civil Engineering degree.  For Peary his overriding ambition became the North Pole.  It was a dream that had also obsessed many others.  His first exploration attempt was Greenland in 1886.  He managed just 100 miles before turning back.  In 1891 he broke his leg but the recuperation enabled him to more clearly define how to achieve his ambition.  Inuit survival techniques were now researched and this gave him valuable insight.  By 1892 he had established that Greenland was an island.  In his 1898–1902 expedition, he claimed an 1899 visual discovery of "Jesup Land" west of Ellesmere. Peary also achieved a "farthest north" for the western hemisphere in 1902 north of Canada's Ellesmere Island.  Peary's next expedition was supported by a $50,000 gift. Peary used the money for a new ship. The SS Roosevelt battled its way through the ice between Greenland and Ellesmere Island, establishing an American hemisphere "farthest north by ship." The 1906 "Peary System" dogsled drive for the pole across the rough sea ice of the Arctic Ocean started from the north tip of Ellesmere at 83° north latitude. The parties made well under 10 miles (16 km) a day until they became separated by a storm.  Peary was without a companion sufficiently trained in navigation to verify his account from that point northward. With insufficient food, and with uncertainty about whether he could negotiate the ice between him and land, he made the best possible dash and barely escaped with his life off the melting ice. On April 20, he was no further north than 86°30' latitude. He claimed the next day to have achieved a Farthest North world record at 87°06' and returned to 86°30' without camping, an implied trip of at least 72 nautical miles (133 km) between sleeping, even assuming direct travel with no detours.  There is little doubt that although greatly honoured for his expeditions that Peary was rather elastic with the truth.  For his final assault on the Pole, Peary and 23 men, including Ross Gilmore Marvin, set off from New York City on July 6, 1908 aboard the S.S. Roosevelt under the command of Captain Robert Bartlett. They wintered near Cape Sheridan on Ellesmere Island, and from Ellesmere departed for the pole on February 28 – March 1, 1909.  This book relates that attempt on the North Pole.  Subsequent to the attempt Peary was promoted to the rank of captain in the Navy on October 20, 1910. By his lobbying, Peary was eventually recognized by Congress to have "attained" the pole (not "discoverer" in deference to 1908 North Pole claimant Frederick Cook's supporters), Peary was given the Thanks of Congress by a special act of March 3, 1911. By a special act of Congress on March 30, 1911, Peary was promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral in the Navy Civil Engineer Corps retroactive to April 6, 1909, and retired the same day.  In early 1916, Peary became chairman of the National Aerial Coast Patrol Commission. It advocated the use of aircraft in detecting warships and submarines off the U.S. coast. Peary used his celebrity to promote the use of military and naval aviation, which led directly to the formation of Naval Reserve aerial coastal patrol units during the First World War.  At the close of the First World War, Peary proposed a system of eight air mail routes, which became the genesis of the U.S. Postal Service's air mail system.  Admiral Robert Edwin Peary died in Washington, D.C. on February 20, 1920. He was buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

    The Story of Magellan

    On our precious globe, oceans spill their majestic waters across 70% of the Earth’s surface.  Over the continents, land untainted by the presence of man is becoming ever more elusive and scarce. 
    One area that almost retains its pristine, unspoiled look is Patagonia in South America. 
    This sparsely populated region is located at the southern end of South America and displays itself across the vast lands of Argentina and Chile. As a whole it comprises of the southern section of the Andes mountains as well as the deserts, pampas and grasslands east of this. Patagonia has two coasts: to the west it faces the Pacific Ocean and to the east the Atlantic Ocean. 
    The Colorado and Barrancas rivers, which run from the Andes to the Atlantic, are commonly considered the northern limit of Argentine Patagonia. For Chilean Patagonia it is at Reloncaví Estuary.  The archipelago of Tierra del Fuego marks its abrupt southern frontier and the famed end of the world. 
    The name Patagonia comes from the word patagón, which was used by the Spanish explorer Magellan in 1520 to describe the native people that his expedition thought to be giants. He called them Patagons and, we think now, they were from the Tehuelche people, who tended to be taller than Europeans of the time. 
    Patagonia encompasses some one million square kilometers and is home to a rich and diverse landscape of plants, fauna and wildlife.  It is a spectacular wilderness full of life and full of history. 
    Early explorers and travellers faced a sometimes difficult and uncomfortable journey to reach there.  The words and pictures they brought back bear testament to a remarkable land and remarkable people. 
    These are their stories.
