Summary

How little those Roman conquerors knew. Because they decided not to cross those 60 miles of choppy water, the small island’s Celtic inhabitants were allowed to continue developing their culture for 



thousands of years without the interference of a colonial master.

Today, that mysterious island bears the proud name of Ireland, a name that inspires love, joy, and intense loyalty all over the world – and not just among the Irish and their descendants! As the 



worldwide popularity of St. Patrick ’s Day shows, there’s something universally recognizable about Irish culture. Something in its combination of rich history, joyous music, and irrepressible humor 



seems to appeal to the depths of every human soul.

    This work has grown out of the desire frequently expressed to the writer when he has been lecturing on the American Revolution, that in some way the experiences of the people as well as the deeds of the armies in that trying period might be presented to the present generation. The author has given to the public this narrative, in which the course of the armies in the various campaigns is followed and, at the same time, many of the forgotten or ignored experiences and deeds of the common people are also incorporated.

    John Muir was born in Scotland on April 21st, 1838.  His Father wanted his children to have a stricter Religious upbringing and therefore moved the family to the United States.  John Muir is perhaps known today as the most pre-eminent naturalist and advocate for the preservation of much of the western United States.  Today being an environmentalist is laudable but in Muir’s days the country was there to be exploited but by hard work and lobbying Muir did much to turn such beautiful areas as Yosemite into protected National Parks.  His writing is not only an invaluable guidebook to these unspoilt places but also a hymn to their spirituality.  As a keen scientific mind he helped to push the understanding of nature forward by observing and writing upon the glaciers and their actions in eroding and shaping much of the land.  Muir helped to also create The Sierra Club, which he led for many years, on projects to preserve these and other areas of outstanding natural beauty. He was equally adept at persuading politicians, from Presidents to local State officials, and the common man to come together in the defence of Nature.

     An “amazing” true account of traveling with Bedouins through a drought-stricken North African landscape (The Boston Globe).   Having journeyed in the past across Siberia and up the Congo, Jeffrey Tayler was well accustomed to adventure and danger. But even this experienced travel writer was unprepared for the physical challenges that awaited him in a Sahara dessicated by eight years of unprecedented drought. In this book, he recounts his travels across a landscape of nightmares—charred earth, blinding sky, choking gales, and what is fittingly called the Valley of the Dead—and manages to describe the trip with “hilarious, horrifying, and wonderfully edifying details” (The Boston Globe).   The last Westerner to attempt this trek left his skeleton in the sand, and even Tayler’s camels wilt in the searing wastes. But his remarkable perseverance, as well as his fluency in classical and Moroccan Arabic, helps him find here a bracing purity. The Saharawi Bedouin among whom he journeys are untouched by the modernity or radicalism that festers elsewhere in the Arab world. By revealing their ingenuity, their wit, their unrivaled hospitality, and more, Tayler upends our notions of what is, and what is not, essentially Arab.   “Beautifully rendered . . . Tayler’s guides provide constant entertainment.” —Seattle Times   “Fascinating and informative.” —Booklist
