The Hemingway Complex 2010 Calendar By Iain Reid
Calendar: $21.49
Ships in 3-5 business days
Some people might describe Ernest Hemingway as being "larger than life". But to say that is not entirely accurate. He was merely larger than other people's lives. He was certainly larger... More > than my life, for example, but he fit quite comfortably into his own. My life isn't extraordinary like that of the great Ernest Hemingway. I've never run with the bulls or told people that I fought in wars or hunted German U-Boats while drinking cocktails on my yacht. But I live life with a Hemingway Complex. Living in pursuit of the impossible. It's the only way I ever seem to do anything interesting. This calendar contains a selection of photographs from adventures that I took without having to quit my day job. I suppose you could call these trips "holidays" or "vacations" but I prefer to call them adventures and thus lift them out from the realm of the mundane.

The story contains the passion, humour, and heartbreak characterizing the journeys of so many gold digging argonauts in what one commentator has called "the most useless human migration in human history."< Less

It is said a hundred thousand men (including my grandfather) made their way to the Klondike in search of gold during the The Great Gold Rush of 1896/7. The Klondike Chest tells the story of some of... More > them as they battle against the fickleness and adversity of nature, and the greed of man, hoping to find gold which will banish their poverty. Ill-prepared, badly advised, under-equipped,and just plain stupid, it's astonishing how many completed the journey which may have included a six hundred mile float down the Yukon River on a home-made raft, or a five hundred mile hike along it banks in mid winter blizzards,carrying enough supplies to last a year.< Less
