Summary

No matter what kind of traveler you are, Portugal has something for you. A blisteringly beautiful example of nature’s bounty, Portugal has shores like icing sugar, ocean so dazzlingly blue it looks photo-shopped, medieval castles, and captivating cities. But there is more to the country than the honeymoon paradise clichés people have gushed about for generations.

Portugal is electrifying, inspiring and surprising.
 
Blessed with the best of the earth’s treasures, this country is a superior geographical hybrid, and visitors searching for the picture perfect will be won over by the world-famous caves of Porto, breathtaking beaches and cliffs, mountain ranges as you move inland and fertile plains bearing towering oaks and pretty orange trees - all in one small, easily navigable country. Cape St Vincent can be buffeted by heavy storms, but Portugal generally sits on the sunny side of things, and everyone who spends some time with this land of open, relaxed culture will fall for the warm character of Portuguese people along with the warm weather. This is the southern European way of life, and everyone takes their time here.

    When you are suffering from an addiction, it can feel like your entire life is out of control and you have no power to stop yourself from using again and again. When you are addicted to something, it can also feel like you're completely alone and have nowhere to turn. These are all common mindsets for someone who has an addiction to any substance, whether that is food, cigarettes or other tobacco products, alcohol, prescription or illegal drugs and even sex. But neither are you alone in your addiction nor do you have to be a slave to addiction for the rest of your life. That's exactly why this book exists. It is very easy to feel like you are the only one who is experiencing your particular addiction – or the level of addiction you're experiencing – but the truth is, there are millions of others who experience exactly the same things that you do. 
    That's because addiction affects more than 10% of the United States population. That means if you were to get on a typical city bus there are probably two or three people on that bus – besides you – that are suffering from some kind of addiction. Don't fool yourself either; having a food addiction or being unable to quit drinking alcohol is the same as an addiction to a drug or any other substance. Addiction is addiction, no matter what the substances.

    Banff Mountain Book Awards WINNER 
    The spellbinding true story of retracing the extraordinary trek of Ewart "the Leopard" Grogan—the legendary British explorer who, in order to win the woman he loved, attempted to become the first person to cross Africa 
    In 1898 the dashing British adventurer Ewart Grogan fell head-over-heels in love—but before he could marry, he needed the approval of his beloved's skeptical, aristocratic stepfather. Grogan, seeking to prove his worth and earn his love's hand, then set out on an epic quest to become the first man to cross the entire length of Africa, from Cape Town to Cairo, "a feat hitherto thought by many explorers to be impossible" (New York Times). 
    A little more than a century later, American journalist Julian Smith also found himself madly in love with his girlfriend of seven years... but he was terrified by the prospect of marraige. Inspired by Grogan's story, which he discovered by chance, Smith decided to face his fears of commitment by retracing the explorer's amazing—but now forgotten—4,500-mile journey for love and glory through Africa. Crossing the Heart of Africa is the unforgettable account of these twin adventures, as Smith beautifully ineterweaves his own contemporary journey with Grogan's larger-than-life tale of cannibal attacks, charging elephants, deadly jungles, and romantic triumph.

    Did You Know We Had a Screen Door?

    Many of us have envied couples who pack up and set off on the ultimate road trip - but not everyone! Due to a sad history of car travel in her youth, the author is less than enthusiastic when her husband suggests they do the same. Things do start to look up, however, when they sign up to hire a Winnebago, the Rolls Royce of motor homes. But once on their way, they are naive about the pitfalls of driving something resembling a removalist's van around the countryside. This is a hilarious account of their experience, full of anecdotes covering everything from formulating a take-off checklist the RAAF would be proud of to working out the ablution solution of the on-board toilet affectionately named Winnie the Poo. Claire Laishley's books My Mother is My Daughter and The Diary of Delores D'Lump are poignant tales, one dealing with how a family relationship changes due to Alzheimer's and the other covering the twelve-month period after a diagnosis of breast cancer. But despite the sadness of the subject matter, Claire still managed to inject humour into the narrative, and the same humour is given full vent in Did You Know We Had a Screen Door? - a thoroughly entertaining read that will leave a smile on your face long after you have turned the last page.

    “Perfectly captures the spirit of Music City . . . An incredible collection of recipes that makes you want to spend as much time as possible in Nashville” (Sean Brock, chef and author of Heritage).   If it seems like Nashville is everywhere these days—that’s because it is. GQ recently declared it “Nowville,” and it has become the music hotspot for both country and rock. But as hot as the music scene is, the food scene is even hotter.   In Nashville Eats, more than one hundred mouthwatering recipes reveal why food lovers are headed south for Nashville’s hot chicken, buttermilk biscuits, pulled pork sandwiches, cornmeal-crusted catfish, chowchow, fried green tomatoes, and chess pie. Author Jennifer Justus whips up the classics—such as pimento cheese and fried chicken—but also includes dishes with a twist on traditional Southern fare—such as Curried Black Chickpeas or Catfish Tacos. And alongside the recipes, Jennifer shares her stories of Nashville—the people, music, history, and food that make it so special.   “A love letter to the working-class cooking of Nashville . . . Nashville Eats by Jennifer Justus is a well-honed cultural passkey to one of America’s great culinary cities.” —John T. Edge, coeditor, The Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook

    Milan a short history

    An almost pocket-size guide-book which leads you through the history of Milan, giving voice to the city itself, going back to its origins and the protagonists of its past. The narrator of the most crucial moments and the most enjoyable anecdotes was one of the great experts in the history of the city; he was one who walked along the tiniest alleys and into the most hidden courtyards lured on by the curiosity of a reporter, but with the punctilious precision of a historian in love with the city and with its inhabitants, from the famous to the most humble. The book goes from the first Celtic settlement to the Second World War bombings, passing through the Roman era, the Longobards, the Viscon tis, the Sforzas with Ludovico il Moro and Leonardo at his court, the Spaniards and later the Austrian domination, then Napoleon, the Risor gimento risings of the Cinque Giornate and comes to an end in May 1946 with Toscanini and his Concert at the Teatro alla Scala. This marked the moment when, with great determination, the city, devastated by the war, started on its reconstruction. Almost two thousand years of facts and events unfold before our eyes in a captivating and gripping style, with the author indulging particularly in the narration of the Sforza years, a period he knew so well and loved so dearly, a time when Milan enjoyed great splendour and international fame.
