Summer Camp By James Orr
eBook (ePub): $2.61
Terry, Jake and Billy go camping at Devil’s Dyke Camp. The setting is beautiful, right next to the lake, with the hope of lots of fishing, hiking and fun. His two buddies, Jake and Billy, tried... More > to pretend they couldn't hear him. They had so many other wonderful things to pay attention to, the beautiful scenery stretching for miles ahead of them as they sat motionless on the road, as the searing rays of the noontime July sun cast intriguing patterns of bitter, burning sweat lines running down each other's faces. It was not turning out to be a good trip. And Terry's temper was starting to show, which didn't help to defuse their problem. “I just had those brakes replaced last month. What the hell is wrong with them?” Terry's green eyes glistened with anger as he threw the driver door open with his powerful left arm. Jake, in the front seat, chanced a quick look into the back, where Billy just shrugged.< Less
Camino De La Luna – Unconditional Love (Without Pictures) By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $0.99
In June 2016 I decided to sell my house of 22 years and leave my comfort zone. Slowly the Camino de Santiago showed itself and I decided, with no rucksack or hiking experience to start... But... More > that’s another story, the one that led to this. My Camino taught me to let go, to travel light and wash my clothes in the shower, but most importantly it taught me to trust my heart and my feet, to let my journey unfold naturally, instinctively, intuitively. In the words of the theme song from my favourite TV show, “Nobody knows where they might end up” when they follow their heart. Riding high on reaching the true destination of my Camino I raced to the airport to leave a country I'd fallen in love with but which I’d had enough of (for the moment). There were two flights out that night; Seattle or Vancouver. My heart was calling me to Seattle, the Emerald City, the home of my TV family, but it all depended on my cab driver and how fast I could run with a loaded rucksack.< Less
Falling for New England By Dave Underwood
Hardcover: $48.66
Prints in 3-5 business days
Karen always dreamed of visiting New York, and 2016 was the year the dream would finally come true. After a week in the Big Apple, our journey took us to Niagara and across to Quebec, where we... More > grabbed a car and headed south to explore the New England states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. Our time in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont was split between two bases - Acadia National Park in Maine, and White Mountains in New Hampshire, both in historic Bed and Breakfasts beautifully located in small villages away from busy commercial hubs. We timed our visit perfectly. The landscape was ablaze with colour, from the snow-capped peak of Mount Washington down to the coastal forests of Mount Desert Island. Mild, sunny days gave way to cool, clear nights that were perfect for touring, and these were some of the finest memories of our trip - from the biggest, sweetest, juiciest scallops and lobster in Maine, to crunchy carpets of gold, red and brown on the hiking paths of White Mountain.< Less

Paperback: $9.96

The sixth and penultimate in the "Camino de la Luna" series (or eighth if you count "free Feeling Real Emotions Everyday" and "Japan Is Very Wonderful")... More > "Truth" continues the journey. “The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.” Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize winning physicist The moment I felt my real feelings, back in a Native American healing in 2016, I discovered what a great liar I was. Lonely, depressed, desperate… the lowest of the low… No matter how my life looked to anyone else the only thing that mattered was being real with myself. But I was still lying, so poetically, so romantically, tricking myself, that my lies grew even more dangerous. Luckily life protected me from myself, from acting on what I thought was real. Instead I got on a plane to Spain and started hiking, each step bringing me closer to the truth, which I would finally understand on the other side of the world. Also available as a full colour paperback.< Less

The Mornings After By Ali L. Hall
Hardcover: $17.68
Prints in 3-5 business days
In my mind, pregnancy would be a time of reading The New Yorker aloud to my baby in utero, Bach streaming gently in through a pair of Bose headphones laid tenderly over my belly, as a doting husband... More > shopped at Dean & DeLuca’s to satisfy my every craving. Instead, I endured pregnancy with psychotherapy, Reiki, and hikes with my dog Buddy. My pregnancy came on the heels of a short marriage and a quick divorce while I was living in Salt Lake City, Utah. The father of the baby wanted nothing to do with it, proclaiming that he was done with the “World Series of Pain,” his name for our relationship. The Mornings After is an account of my nine-month journey during which I prepared emotionally for motherhood, faced the mistakes of my past, and lived a life in stark contrast to that of my conservative, religious neighbors. My family and friends were thousands of miles away, but their love and support never wavered. This is how it felt to bring someone new into the world, and how it changed my life.< Less

More > and hitch-hiking around the country, being sent out to beg for food to feed his family, working the fields of California and living out in the open under an old oak tree.

This book is the result of our inquiries regarding dichotomies in San Diego. The 7th graders at High Tech Middle Media Arts set out to hike all the way from Border Field State Park to Cabrillo... More > National Monument-23 miles! On the journey, we observed and inspected our personal dichotomies by finding images that showed them in our city. In the beginning of the project, we were stuck on dichotomies that were a little more shallow like Water vs. Land and Mountains vs. Beach, but upon deeper investigation we were able take our learning to the next step. We began to notice things that weren’t as obvious, but were more interesting and figurative like Freedom vs. Entrapment, Peace vs. Chaos, and our group’s collective dichotomy-Wealth vs. Poverty. Through this project, we came to find that Thriving and Surviving is one large difference that is very prominent in San Diego. Inside this book, you will not only see our journey through San Diego, but our journey of learning and growth.< Less
