A Lap Around Alaska: An AlCan Adventure cover
Book Review

If you dream of packing up your four-wheeler, your snow boots and camera, and setting off to explore the wilderness, A Lap Around Alaska will give you a rare glimpse into the Land of the Midnight Sun, of moose, bear, and bald eagles, of monumental glaciers and scenery so staggering it brings tears to your eyes.
Find out what it's really like to cross 1,400 miles of the Alaskan Highway and travel some of the loneliest and most spectacular parts of America and Canada, all without leaving your easy chair. Join author Shawn Inmon and his twenty year old Subaru Outback on his epic solo road trip through British Columbia, Yukon, and Alaska. Part personal odyssey, part travel memoir, take an expedition into one of North America’s last remaining wildernesses.

If you hunger for untouched beauty and want to experience the majesty of the pristine North for yourself—Shawn saved the passenger seat just for you.
This book also includes two bonus memoirs of life in Alaska in the 1970s—My First Alaskan Summer and My Matanuska Summer.

Out of Africa: and Shadows on the Grass (Vintage International) cover
Book Review

With classic simplicity and a painter's feeling for atmosphere and detail, Isak Dinesen tells of the years she spent from 1914 to 1931 managing a coffee plantation in Kenya.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Amazon.com Review

Out of Africa is Karin Blixen's love letter to the country she called home for nearly 20 years. Arriving in British East Africa (now Kenya) from Denmark in 1914, Blixen--Isak Dinesen was her pen name--was immediately seduced by the landscape of the Ngong hill country, not to mention the animals and people who inhabited it. Her descriptions bring this wonderland alive for readers: out on safari, she recalls the movements of a group of giraffes, "in their queer, inimitable, vegetative gracefulness, as if it were not a herd of animals but a family of rare, long-stemmed, speckled gigantic flowers slowly advancing." Blixen laces into her reverie the account of her coffee plantation--which ultimately succumbed to high altitude, droughts, and tumbling international coffee prices--and tales of her friendships with other colonials in Nairobi. But one should read her memoir for the stories she tells of cooking with her Kiku...

Book Review

'Fantastic Turkish-Cypriot food' - Yotam Ottolenghi

Oklava translates simply as 'rolling pin'.

Dante's Immortality: Beginnings cover
Book Review

For those who reside in the outer regions of Aleria, the day of bestowal is what determines their destiny.

It is the holy day of the Goddess. The day that allows those of age to step forward and receive her blessing, to embark on the path that she has chosen for them. To receive their Classification, which dictates their strength and ability. For those people, the holy day of bestowal represents fate itself.

For Dante, it represents salvation.

Years have past since he found himself abandoned without memories. Years of hunger, ostracization, and solitude on the streets of Alazel without any hope of reprieve. Of entrapment at the hands of the creatures that roamed the wilds beyond the city walls that made leaving impossible.

Now, there is a chance for everything to change.

In a cruel world where power could be gained through slaughter, strength meant everything. For Dante, that meant that the last his hopes lay in the Goddess’ blessing. A combat Classification would be a lifeline, a way for him to escape the hell he had been living in. Anything else would only mean death.


This is a fantasy st...

Banished (The Storymakers) cover
Book Review

Dorthea of Emerald is used to being treated like the princess she is. Except she's trapped in a strange land called Kansas, where no one recognizes she's royalty. Not her parents, not the hospital's doctors, not even the cute patient who keeps flirting with her. The only one who knows who she really is? The evil Blanc. And she's thundering into Kansas to erase Dorethea's—and everyone else's—story.

Back in Camelot, outlaw Rexi's got her own problems...like being locked in a tower. She may have trained with Robin Hood, but she's going to need to steal more than a key to escape Gwenevere's trap to take back Excalibur. And even if Rexi manages to get free, she still needs to reclaim her storyline from Morte's wicked plotting.

It's not over until the last spot of ink dries.

Dorethea and Rexi won't give up their happily ever afters without a fight. But with the villains of Story scripting their triumph, does this spell The End for Dorethea and Rexi?
