Des Moines, Iowa-born writer Bryson´s first success was the travel book The Lost Continent. After living in England for several years, he wanted to go back to the USA to find the perfect little US town of his past, he lovingly called Amalgam. More travel books followed, in the form of Neither Here Nor There (where he travels through Europe), Notes From A Small Island (where he travels around the United Kingdom, before returning back to the USA to live there for good) and A Walk In The Woods (where he walks the Appalachian trail). After moving back to the States, Bryson started to write a column for The Mail on Sunday Night and Day magazine. This is a collection of these column entries. Bryson writes about everything from everyday chores, to suing people, the beach, TV, movies, air conditioners, college, Americana, injury dangers, wasting resources, and holiday seasons. 1.

Castles in the Air is a beautifully written, autobiographical story of rescuing an ancient mansion. Gwydir Castle was inhabited by ravers and rats until Judy Corbett and her husband Peter Welford found and acquired this 500-year-old house mouldering in the foothills of Snowdonia. Despite the toads, strange smells and squatters, they decided to mortgage themselves to the hilt to bring the castle back to life. This is an evocatively written and genuinely moving book and is infused with an extraordinary sense of place. The couple´s adventures in a gothic wonderland lead them through plots both supernatural and historical. In a museum storeroom in a Bronx warehouse they find a missing room, in the castle´s Solar Tower the ghost of a young woman appears and from the far edges of the woods a silent man called Sven emerges to befriend the couple and their beloved castle. 1.

The city of Buenos Aires is a beautiful combination of classic European design and the grandiose allure of Latin American flare. This capital city of Argentina has a lot to offer travelers, and not just because it is the birthplace of the tango. In fact, the tango is merely a part of the trifecta of local passions that many visitors seek out, with steak and wine being equally favored. However, the French design, Italian cuisine, and Spanish nightlife have made this city a medley of culture, fun, and flavor. Between romantic restaurants and a vibrant nightlife, Buenos Aires is passionate, exciting, and offers an atmosphere that is not to be missed. This Argentinian capital is not only one of the most exciting cities on the continent, but in the world. Not only is this city an infusion of culture, it is also incredibly generous. There are a wide variety of free activities, allowing travelers to save their funds for one of the many delicious and elaborate dining or drinking experiences the city offers. Additionally, the city is renowned for the local residents who offer free tours, giving sightseers the best perspectives of the city. And most of the city´s parks feature free yoga or tai chi classes with welcoming atmospheres, so any one is able to participate. Plus, it is not unusual to encounter an impromptu tango show on the streets, which will often invite bystanders to participate. Straggling between the ethos of both Latin America and Europe, Buenos Aires features Belle Époque architecture, along with tree-lined avenues and cobblestone streets that are filled with adorable cafés and boutiques. Modeled after Paris and Madrid, the city was remodeled in the 20th century. However, public art and graffiti accent the historic buildings, bringing a liveliness and uniqueness to the surroundings. Known for good times, great food, world-class wine, and late nights, visitors should be prepared for the city to come alive each night. Most nights, one a.m. is 1. Language: English.

Best known for his sweeping international and political fiction narratives - including The Woman Who Lost Her Soul, which won the Dayton Peace Prize and was finalist for the Pulitzer Prize - Bob Shacochis began his writing career as a pioneering journalist and contributing editor for Outside Magazine and Harper´s. Kingdoms in the Air brings together the very best of Shacochis´s culture and travel essays in one livewire collection that spans his global adventures and his life passions; from surfing, to his obsession with the South American dorado, to the time he went bushwhacking in Mozambique. In the titular essay ´´Kingdoms´´, the longest work in the collection, Shacochis ventures to Nepal with his friend, the photographer Thomas Laird, who was the first foreigner to live in Nepal´s kingdom of Mustang as the forbidden Shangri-la prepared to open its borders to trekkers and trade. When the two men return a decade after Laird first lived there, Shacochis observes in brilliantly evocative prose both the current cultural and political landscape of the country and the changes that his friend has to reconcile with. Replete with Shacochis´s signature swagger, humor, and crystalline wisdom, Kingdoms in the Air is a majestic and essential collection from one of our most important writers. 1. Language: English.

Into Thin Air is the definitive, personal account of the deadliest season in the history of Everest by the acclaimed journalist and author of Eiger Dreams and Into the Wild. On assignment for Outside magazine, Krakauer, an accomplished climber, went to the Himalayas to report on the growing commercialization of the planet´s highest mountain. Everest has always been a dangerous mountain. From the first British expeditions in the 1920s until 1996, one climber has died for ever 4 who have attained the summit. This shocking death toll has not put a damper on the burgeoning business of guided ascents, however, in which amateur alpinists with alarmingly disparate skills are ushered up the mountain for a $65,000 fee. To ascend into the thin, frigid air above 26,000 feet - the cruising altitude of a commercial jetliner - is an inherently irrational act. The environment is unimaginably harsh, the margin for error miniscule. Krakauer examines what it is about Everest that has compelled so many people - including himself - to throw caution to the wind, ignore the concern of loved ones, and willingly subject themselves to such risk, hardship, and expense. Written with emotional clarity and supported by his unimpeachable reporting, Krakauer´s frank eyewitness account of what happened on the roof of the world is a singular achievement. 1.
