Bill Bryson will es seinen gehfaulen Landsleuten zeigen: Gemeinsam mit seinem Freund Katz, der aufgrund gewaltiger Leibesfülle und einer festverwurzelten Leidenschaft für Schokoriegel nicht gerade die besten Voraussetzungen dafür mitbringt, will er den längsten Fußweg der Welt, den "Appalachian Trail", bezwingen. Eine abenteuerliche Reise quer durch zwölf Bundesstaaten der USA beginnt... Ein Reisebericht der etwas anderen Art - humorvoll, selbstironisch und mit einem scharfen Blick für die Marotten von Menschen und Bären!

In the company of his friend Stephen Katz (last seen in the bestselling Neither Here nor There), Bill Bryson set off to hike the Appalachian Trail, the longest continuous footpath in the world. Ahead lay almost 2,200 miles of remote mountain wilderness filled with bears, moose, bobcats, rattlesnakes, poisonous plants, disease-bearing tics, the occasional chuckling murderer and - perhaps most alarming of all - people whose favourite pastime is discussing the relative merits of the external-frame backpack. Facing savage weather, merciless insects, unreliable maps and a fickle companion whose profoundest wish was to go to a motel and watch The X-Files, Bryson gamely struggled through the wilderness to achieve a lifetime's ambition - not to die outdoors.

Set in the midst of the Cold War, Lee Blessing’s powerful and startling play dramatises a stand-off between U.S. and Soviet arms negotiators as they battle for supremacy. Full of tension and humour A Walk in the Woods shows how the relationship between the two experts evolves as they stroll in the woods above Geneva, away from the glare of the negotiating table. But will this escape lead to a true breakthrough or just more posturing? In this revised version of the play, originally performed at Northern Stage, Vermont, and directed by Nicholas Kent, a woman plays the role of the U.S. negotiator.

Sehnsucht nach Stille - wie Christopher Knight 27 Jahre in der Wildnis lebte. Im Sommer 1986 begibt sich Christopher Knight auf einen Roadtrip von Massachusetts nach Maine und verschwindet in den Wäldern. 27 Jahre lang bleibt er dort, abgeschieden von der Welt, ohne menschlichen Kontakt, bis er wegen Diebstahls gefasst wird: Er hatte Essen geklaut. In einem einfachen Zelt überlebte Knight die härtesten Winter, weil er klug wie ein Eichhörnchen Vorräte gebunkert und alles darauf ausgerichtet hatte, nicht zu erfrieren. In den nahegelegenen Ferienhäusern versorgte er sich mit Lebensmitteln, Kleidung und Büchern und verstörte als unheimliches Phantom die Bewohner von North Pond. Der Journalist Michael Finkel hat das außergewöhnliche Leben des Chris Knight dokumentiert. Entstanden ist eine fesselnde Story, die den fundamentalen Fragen über ein gutes Leben nachgeht und das tief bewegende Porträt eines Mannes hinterlässt, der sich seinen Traum erfüllte: ein Leben in absoluter Stille.

Chained to a bed in a locked cell, the Duke's sworn man, Ty waits for moonrise. Infected in an ambush by a Raver, Ty must now learn to see if his mind will snap during his first change to wolf form. And if he goes mad, he will be killed. When Cassandra stops at the local inn for the night, the villagers throw her into the cell with Ty -- a pretty stranger makes a perfect sacrificial offering to test a new werewolf. Life at risk, she leashes his beast with passion. Now, he needs her to help control the animal within until he can reach the aid of the Brethren wolves. Duke Cynbarion hears what's happened to his sworn man and insists on traveling with Ty and Cassandra. He'll do whatever it takes to keep Ty sane and whole. A powerful Duke alone in the woods except for a woman and a man clinging to his sanity? Just what his enemies would like to hear, but then, Cyn excels at keeping secrets -- until Cassandra uncovers and fulfills needs he has long kept hidden. Away from civilization, an enemy waits, and more than Ty's fate will be decided during their Walk in the Woods.

Eine ebenso herzliche wie spöttische Liebeserklärung an England: unorthodox, scharfzüngig und hinreißend komisch Was ist das für ein Land, in dem so unaussprechliche Namen wie Llywyngwril auf den Ortsschildern stehen? Wo Kekse gereicht werden, die jedes Gebiss bedrohen? Von den Kalkfelsen Dovers bis ins raue schottische Thurso erkundet Bryson die eigentümliche Weit jenseits des Ärmelkanals und kommt zu dem Schluss: England muss man einfach lieben - ganz gleich, wie wunderlich es einem zuweilen erscheinen mag.

A field guide designed to get kids out and exploring the woods! This unique, simple nature kit gives kids an accessible, engaging introduction to the woods—and the animals, insects, flora, and rocks that a nature walk will most likely reveal. Since the guide focuses on the most popular North American wildlife, kids will feel instantly rewarded when they spot a chipmunk, sugar maple, or monarch butterfly. The portable, fully illustrated, flexibound guide includes tree-climbing tips, a chart for identifying animal droppings, a feature on edible forest finds, and more. It is packaged in a beautiful treasure box with magnetic closure, complete with compartments for kids’ prized discoveries, such as berries, acorns, and pebbles. Tucked into two of the compartments—and visible though the die-cut frame on the treasure box’s cover—are a mesh collecting bag for mess-free gathering and a magnifying jar for close-up observing.

Von grünen Caprihosen, Zigarettenwerbung von Ärzten und dem ersten Farbfernseher Die 1950er Jahre waren Bill Brysons Kindheitsjahre und damit die spannendsten, sorgenfreiesten und idyllischsten Jahre seines Lebens. Weil sie das alles auch für die gesamten Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika waren, hat Bill Bryson gleich zwei Biographien geschrieben: seine eigene und die seines Landes. Denn wer könnte besser und witziger von Lausbubenstreichen und Wirtschaftsboom, von grünen Caprihosen und Hiroshima, von Ärzten, die Zigarettenwerbung machen, und dem ersten Farbfernseher erzählen als Bill Bryson? Ein hinreißend komisches Porträt Amerikas. Wahrscheinlich das witzigste Buch des Jahres!

Part inspiration, part information narrative for our story is based on walking meditation, also known as mindful walking; an active practice that requires you to be consciously aware and moving in the environment rather than sitting with your eyes closed. Just as The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Marie Kondo's mega-selling book (over 4 million copies sold worldwide) provides readers with a life/spiritual philosophy embedded in the how-to of minimalism (with practical tips for de-cluttering of one's home), A Walk in the Wood provides a narrative grounded in the simple act of slowing down, observing what is around us, and being present. Appealing to adults who are actively searching ways to join the JOMO movement (Joy of Missing Out and being content just "being"), A Walk in the Wood also makes for a perfect gift for stressed-out family members and friends.

Bill Brysons amüsante Reise in das Herz Amerikas. Mit Mitte zwanzig kehrt Bill Bryson dem verschlafenen Mittleren Westen Amerikas den Rücken, um Jahre später voll Heimweh zurückzukehren. In einem alten Chevrolet macht er sich auf die 14.000 Meilen lange Fahrt durch das Amerika seiner Jugend. Und mit liebevoller Ironie beschreibt er die Stationen seiner Reise, erzählt von Begegnungen mit schrulligen Einwohnern und von Orten, die er kurzerhand in Coma oder Dead Squaw umbenennt. Dabei zelebriert er, pendelnd zwischen Witz und Wehmut, auch einmal mehr den amerikanischen Traum von Freiheit und Abenteuer. • Vom Autor der Bestseller „Eine kurze Geschichte von fast allem“ und „Picknick mit Bären“.
