    A “fascinating” journey to little-known and contested lands around the globe, from Tibet to the Isle of Man to Elgaland-Vargaland (Geographical Magazine). 
     
    What is a country? Acclaimed travel writer and Oxford geography don Nick Middleton brings to life the origins and histories of fifty states that, lacking international recognition and United Nations membership, exist on the margins of legitimacy in the global order. From long-contested lands like Crimea and Tibet to lesser-known territories such as Africa’s last colony and a European republic that enjoyed independence for a single day, Middleton presents fascinating stories of shifting borders, visionary leaders, and “forgotten” peoples.

    A guidebook for those planning a tour of this key battleground of the First World War.   The First World War battlefields to the north of Arras—including Vimy Ridge—are among the most famous and most visited sites on the Western Front, rivaled only by those around Ypres and the Somme, and this clearly written, highly illustrated guide is the ideal introduction to them. Visitors can trace for themselves the course of each battle across the modern landscape and gain a fascinating insight into the nature of the fighting in the area—and the wider conflict across the Western Front—throughout the war.   The book covers the key battles fought in the northern sector of the Arras front, including the 1917 Battle of Vimy Ridge and battles at Villers au Bois, Oppy Wood, and Gavrelle. Expert guides Jon Cooksey and Jerry Murland have devised a series of routes that can be walked, biked, or driven, explaining the fighting that occurred at each place in vivid detail. They record what happened, where it happened, and why, and point out the sights that remain for the visitor to see. Their guidebook is essential reading for visitors who wish to enhance their understanding of the war on the Western Front.

    RETURN TO EDEN was written and is narrated by Tucker Smallwood.  His name is familiar to some but his face and voice are recognized all over the world, from his work as an actor in film and television.  In 1969, Tucker commanded an Army Advisory Team in the Mekong Delta, living with and helping Vietnamese militia defend their village.  On a fateful Sunday afternoon he was critically wounded and at one point pronounced dead.  He survived multiple surgeries, eventually recovered and moved to New York to study acting with Sanford Meisner.  On Christmas Day 2004, Tucker returned to the delta village he’d helped defend so many years ago.  This is an intensely personal work, some 33 essays that engage his training, his memories of combat, his work around the world as an artist, his struggles with PTSD and his pilgrimage to the place that had defined his entire life.  Each story is true.  They will amuse you, intrigue you, provoke you and touch you.  It is work not easily forgotten.  There are 55 photographs from his book that enhance the experience and can be viewed by listeners at his website:  Tuckersmallwood.com    He asks that you share these words with anyone in your life that has been touched by war.

    Nobody wakes up in the morning and decides to shut down their senses and stumble through each day in an oblivious bubble, and yet some people end up having much richer experiences than others. In this guidebook, natural navigator Tristan Gooley strives to reawaken our senses to help us understand and deepen our personal experience of nature. His message is to connect-however we can and to whatever draws us in. Some listeners will find they have a knack for predicting rain or, after ten minutes of trying to draw a tree, that they will never look at trees the same way again. For others, the landscape will come to life once they see everything from butterflies to bears as locked in a Darwinian struggle for survival. By pairing his philosophy-that there's much more to nature than meets the eye if we know where and how to look-with fifteen simple get-out-the-door exercises, Gooley invites readers who have shared his previous adventures to go out and make their own discoveries.
