My Way By Saaga Lamusuo
eBook (ePub): $8.95
Tämä on neljään matkapäiväkirjaani pohjautuva matkakertomus. Kierrämme mantereelta toiselle kokien Espanjan vuoret, Sri Lankan lämmön, Intian illat,... More > Utahin autiomaat ja pyhiinvaelluksen kipeyttämät jalat. Kaikista ulkoisista seikkailuista huolimatta, se on enemmänkin sisäinen kertomus ja itsetutkiskelu. Se kertoo itsenäistymisprosessista ja kasvamisesta, kamppailusta ulkoisen ja sisäisen maailman välillä. Se on tarina elämän ihmeestä, kauneudesta ja rosoisuudesta, mutta ennen kaikkea kertomus kohtaamisien ihmeellisyydestä. Se ei ole supersankari-seikkailu tai täydellinen Instagram-matkakuvagalleria. Välillä se on ilon tanssia välillä pohjamudissa möyrimistä. Tämä kirja ei saa ”onnellisesti elämänsä loppuun saakka” -loppua, sillä Saaga jatkaa matkaansa vielä tälläkin hetkellä. Toivon, että tämän tarinan avulla voin jakaa jotakin, joka auttaa sinua oman matkasi kulkemisessa. En anna ohjeita hyvään elämään tai onnen saavuttamiseen, mutta pohdin noita seikkoja kanssasi. Tervetuloa matkaan!< Less

От Севастополя до Берлина через Донскую излучину By ЛЕОН ТИПОГРАФ
Paperback: $4.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
If Leon Tipograf's story were a movie script, it would be deemed too preposterous for the screen. When the Germans invaded Crimea on June 22, 1942, Tipograf was a student at the Highest Military... More > Naval College. Entering the war as a naval officer, he was severely wounded. Gravely ill from the gunshot, and left behind by the retreating Soviet troops, he was found by Germans and taken prisoner. As a Soviet officer and a Jew behind the Nazi lines, he was in danger of being shot immediately… He escaped the camp, and survived only due to his cunning, resilience, courage and exceptional intelligence. He managed to travel across the countryside and join the Soviet army, concluding the war in Berlin. This remarkable saga would have made him a celebrity, but it was not heard by his contemporaries or his descendants. Only now, almost by a miracle, 70 years later has it come to light. L.M.Tipograf shares his memories of that momentous and monstrous period in history with gripping detail and stark clarity.< Less

This book oscillates between touristic Corsica and in my memories of yesteryear. Another look... another vision... but still as much love."
