Some people are meant to travel the globe, to unwrap its secrets and share them with the world. And some people have no sense of direction, are terrified of pigeons, and get motion sickness from tying their shoes. These people are meant to stay home and eat nachos. Geraldine DeRuiter is the latter. But she won't let that stop her. Hilarious, irreverent, and heartfelt, All Over the Place chronicles the years Geraldine spent traveling the world after getting laid off from a job she loved. Those years taught her a great number of things, though the ability to read a map was not one of them. She has only a vague idea of where Russia is, but she now understands her Russian father better than ever before. She learned that what she thought was her mother's functional insanity was actually an equally incurable condition called "being Italian." She learned what it's like to travel the world with someone you already know and love--how that person can help you make sense of things and make far-off places feel like home. She learned about unemployment and brain tumors, lost luggage and lost opportunities, and just getting lost in countless terminals and cabs and hotel lobbies across the globe. And she learned that sometimes you can find yourself exactly where you need to be--even if you aren't quite sure where you are.

A fun, engaging page-turner for lovers of smart chick lit and romantic women's fiction...the perfect sweet escape for fans of Lucy Diamond, Jill Mansell, and Miranda Dickinson. "How far would you go to find the place you're meant to be?" It was a South Pacific paradise...until it wasn't. After a reality TV disaster in New Zealand, Livi Callaway heads back to London, determined to stay under the radar. But her new life is complicated by unexpected visitors from her old one, and new dangers and temptations lie in wait. Late one night, she meets a mysteriously sexy American on the Underground-and the events that follow take her from the heart of London to the golden lights of Paris, via a trail of rock stars dead and alive. A family in disarray, a determined Swede, a crazed Australian, and a childhood friend (who might yet be more than that) have her all over the place as she tries to discover the American's secret-while keeping her own. With help-and occasional hindrance-from her friends, what she eventually finds is something unexpected...sometimes, running away can lead you to exactly what you didn't know you needed.

For Andy and Franz Tzweki, sons of Polish immigrants of the Catholic faith, whose early years were spent at a British Columbia logging camp high in the mountains it seemed that everything they did, or even thought of doing was a sin. For nine years their only contact with the outside world came by way of their fathers employees who periodically took it upon themselves to teach the boys English. In 1916 they are discovered by School Authorities for the coal mining town of Nugget. At ages nine and six respectfully they are suddenly thrust onto a train and taken to a thriving town filled with streets; stores; houses; churches; people with eccentric superstitions and prejudice; a school full of children and spinster teachers who re-name them Andy and Frank. During his first few days in school Andy meets ten year old Ted Lundell who will become his mentor and life-long friend. It was a life of discipline at home, school and in the church where an all-seeing God saw sinners everywhere. For Andy, thoroughly convinced he was awash in sin, this new life brings the apprehension of learning a new language and making hilarious mistakes along with exhilaration that comes through new experiences fraught with new sins lurking arond every corner. In 1918 at the age of twelve he returns to the bush as a flunky where he learns about hard work and how to get along in a closed community for a long period of time. The experience helps him to decide what kind of work he would like to do and how to achive that goal.

As her mind decays, an old woman revisits her childhood, the trauma of her trek out of Rangoon, Burma and the challenges of life in an Australian migrant camp following the War. Death is elusive and in her search for release, Yolande's mind, like her life, hurtles 'all over the place'. Linked by the bond between mothers, daughters and sisters in a range of poignant contexts, the narrative is subtly feminist and also surfaces sub-themes of multicultural and transcultural significance. The strength of nurturing relationships is exposed in this kaleidoscope of fragments-all that remain of a rich life eroded and distorted by dementia. Daughters who find themselves dealing with the emotional burden of caring for their mothers and their own daughters will find inspiration in the pathos and compassion generated among the characters. Catapulted from the comfortable life of colonial Rangoon into the hardship of hunger fear, rejection and poverty, Yolande demonstrates the tenacity of unfailing love. The narrative has appeal for all who believe in the beauty, strength and vulnerability of women.

Winner of the 2008 Washington State Book Award for History/Biography In traditional scholarship, Native Americans have been conspicuously absent from urban history. Indians appear at the time of contact, are involved in fighting or treaties, and then seem to vanish, usually onto reservations. In Native Seattle, Coll Thrush explodes the commonly accepted notion that Indians and cities-and thus Indian and urban histories-are mutually exclusive, that Indians and cities cannot coexist, and that one must necessarily be eclipsed by the other. Native people and places played a vital part in the founding of Seattle and in what the city is today, just as urban changes transformed what it meant to be Native. On the urban indigenous frontier of the 1850s, 1860s, and 1870s, Indians were central to town life. Native Americans literally made Seattle possible through their labor and their participation, even as they were made scapegoats for urban disorder. As late as 1880, Seattle was still very much a Native place. Between the 1880s and the 1930s, however, Seattle's urban and Indian histories were transformed as the town turned into a metropolis. Massive changes in the urban environment dramatically affected indigenous people's abilities to survive in traditional places. The movement of Native people and their material culture to Seattle from all across the region inspired new identities both for the migrants and for the city itself. As boosters, historians, and pioneers tried to explain Seattle's historical trajectory, they told stories about Indians: as hostile enemies, as exotic Others, and as noble symbols of a vanished wilderness. But by the beginning of World War II, a new multitribal urban Native community had begun to take shape in Seattle, even as it was overshadowed by the city's appropriation of Indian images to understand and sell itself. After World War II, more changes in the city, combined with the agency of Native people, led to a new visibility and authority for Indians in Seattle. The descendants of Seattle's indigenous peoples capitalized on broader historical revisionism to claim new authority over urban places and narratives. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, Native people have returned to the center of civic life, not as contrived symbols of a whitewashed past but on their own terms. In Seattle, the strands of urban and Indian history have always been intertwined. Including an atlas of indigenous Seattle created with linguist Nile Thompson, Native Seattle is a new kind of urban Indian history, a book with implications that reach far beyond the region.

In 1951, three young women from Quilpie in south west Queensland ventured off to see the world in their own ‘little green Ford’. They rode camels at the great pyramids, picnicked among the monoliths of Stonehenge, attended the Royal Ascot races, joined a grouse shooting expedition in Wales and negotiated the traffic in France. Frances tells her fascinating and light hearted story of an eight month trip to post war to Europe via Singapore with stop overs in India, Egypt and Rome, and home across America. This is international travel in another era. Apart from this initial fling overseas, Frances spent the first 50 years of her life in western Queensland where the closest neighbour was 30 km away and 1100 km from the capital city, Brisbane. Raising, and actually teaching eight children before they all went off to boarding school in Grade 6, was taken in her stride.

19 All Over the Place Spoken-Word Poems 29 Original Illustrations 1 Maze 1 Love =50 reasons why... "Life'Scrap, But Fun K: Part 1, All Over the Place" written by Marisa McFarlane is the first installment of a spaztastic three-ebook Spoken-Word series. The pieces become longer and more detailed or theme-oriented with each installment. All of the parts were written throughout McFarlane's life from high school to college and grad school. This first part in particular took three months to collect, edit, illustrate, and finalize. These mashups of words and images are expressions of passion and creativity to combat depression and insecurities. The editing and layout of the pieces reflects how they are performed through Spoken-Word, which is spoken and heard. Topics therein include love, loneliness, braggadocio / self-help, alter-egos, relationship building, fun gibberish and random thoughts, reactions to art, personal life stories, and random questioning of life. The author declares her biracial ancestry and feminine identity through wordsmith rhymes and colorful imagery. She is writing from the perspective of a young woman of color finding her self and exploring her worldview. These words and worlds of hers have been poured out for readers to drink and eat as food for thought. For dessert, illustrations appear as letters sparking the start of each piece, as well as visual representations of the meanings of a few of the pieces. The illustrations were all hand-drawn and then polished using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. The visual art heightens the significance of the pieces and gives readers more creative insight into the mélange of methods Marisa McFarlane uses to express herself. This project is an experiment to break into the world of writing and publishing with music and performance always in mind. She has many more plans for art projects, such as a full-length music album and a children's book. Eat up the brain candy!

Throughout it is a delight; an easy read that is both entertaining and thought-provoking.

*** Shortlisted for the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Award 2016 in the category of Adventure Travel *** In 2013, three friends set off on a journey that they had been told was impossible: the north-south crossing of the Congo River Basin, from Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, to Juba, in South Sudan. Traversing 2,500 miles of the toughest terrain on the planet in a twenty-five year-old Land Rover, they faced repeated challenges, from kleptocracy and fire ants to non-existent roads and intense suspicion from local people. Through imagination and teamwork -- including building rafts and bridges, conducting makeshift surgery in the jungle and playing tribal politics -- they got through. But the Congo is raw, and the journey took an unexpected psychological toll on them all. Crossing the Congo is an offbeat travelogue, a story of friendship and what it takes to complete a great journey against tremendous odds, and an intimate look into one of the world's least-developed and most fragile states, told with humor and sensitivity.
