Summary

Meet the spirits who haunt this historic New Mexico city . . . photos included!   Old Town Plaza has been the center of Albuquerque community life since the city was founded in 1706 by Gov. Francisco Cuervo y Valdez. Historically known as the crossroads of the Southwest, and reflecting an amalgamation of Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultures, Old Town Plaza has been home to many of New Mexico’s proud ancestors—and still is.  Ghosts of Old Town Albuquerque presents the evidence of their specters wandering the shadows, gathered by author Cody Polston, president of the Southwest Ghost Hunter’s Association. Having tracked spirits for three decades, including in such landmarks as the Bottger Mansion and Casa de Ruiz, Polston explores the history and mysteries behind many of Old Town Plaza’s eerie wraiths.

    Humanity's written history stretches back only 5,000 years, a mere blip on the timeline of our existence. If you want to know what it really means to be fully human, to see the whole story, you need to go back. Way, way back.
    Prehistoric humans couldn't write, but they were adept at telling their own stories. On every continent and outpost where they gained a foothold, they left signs for modern man to decipher. 
    From the Middle Bronze Age settlement of Arkaim on the Kazakh Steppes to the temples of the Olmec in Mexico; from one of the first European proto-cities at Nebelivka in Ukraine to the neolithic henges of Avebury and Stonehenge; from the dolmens of Antequera in the heart of Andalucía to the megalithic culture that thrived in isolation on Indonesia's tiny Nias Island.

    Cathedrals and great churches are among the most iconic sights of the world's towns and cities.
    Visible from miles around, the cathedrals of Canterbury, St Paul's, Chartres and St Stephen's in Vienna dominate their skylines. Others surprise by their statistics: Salisbury has Britain's tallest spire, Wells the largest display of medieval sculptures in the world, while King's College Chapel in Cambridge boasts the largest fan vaulting in existence. Not all are ancient: Dresden's reconstructed Frauenkirche opened in 2005 and Gaudi's masterpiece in Barcelona is still under construction.
    Award-winning travel writer Sue Dobson gives us a highly personal tour of their highlights.

    In this hilarious and heart-warming collection of essays, the bestselling author reflects on a life spent exploring the British countryside on foot. 
     
    From the splendor of the Pennines and the Lake District to the drama of the Dorset coast; from the canals of the Midlands to wildest Scotland, this book is an attempt to explain a passion for walking and the delights it can bring. 
     
    Culled from Stuart Maconie’s monthly column in Country Walking, it’s full of the beautiful places, magical moments and wonderful characters he has encountered on his travels. It discusses such intrepid adventures as taking on the famous “Wainwright” fells of the Lake District, walking Hadrian’s Wall with colleague Mark Radcliffe, and why the most important things to carry in a rucksack are a transistor radio and a small bottle of red wine. 
     
    Praise for Stuart Maconie 
     
    “Maconie makes a jovial, self-deprecating narrator. Sharp and funny.” —The Guardian 
     
    “He is as funny as Bryson and as wise as Orwell.” —The Observer 
     
    “Stuart Maconie is the best thing to come out of Wigan since the A58 to Bolton.” —Peter Kay 
     
    “An heir to Alan Bennett . . . stirring and rather wonderful.” —The Sunday Times
