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!

God only knows what possessed Bill Bryson, a reluctant adventurer if ever there was one, to undertake a gruelling hike along the world's longest continuous footpath—The Appalachian Trail. The 2,000-plus-mile trail winds through 14 states, stretching along the east coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine. It snakes through some of the wildest and most spectacular landscapes in North America, as well as through some of its most poverty-stricken and primitive backwoods areas. With his offbeat sensibility, his eye for the absurd, and his laugh-out-loud sense of humour, Bryson recounts his confrontations with nature at its most uncompromising over his five-month journey. An instant classic, riotously funny, A Walk in the Woods will add a whole new audience to the legions of Bill Bryson fans.

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.

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“.

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.

Advance Praise for Mission to Moscow "Fifty years ago when few foreign journalists ventured very far into the Soviet heartland, Life magazine sent Peter Young prospecting for stories from the Black Sea resorts to the shores of Kamchatka in the Pacific Far East. His superbly written memories of that assignment provide a colorful and amusing highlight in a life - long career of reporting and editing." Roy Rowan Life magazine's former chief of correspondents "I read this book in one gulp, with delight and many fond memories. It's a true gift to the author's family, to his old friends and colleagues, and, one hopes, to lots of readers. His intention to portray the warmth, humor, and earthiness of the Russian people really comes through. The whole manuscript is immensely human. That was a hard story to tell back in the'60s, and I don't think Americans to this day have any appreciation of the Russians as human." Richard C. Longworth Former Moscow correspondent United Press International "Peter Young's travels through Soviet Russia and Eastern Europe are filled with real-life adventure and mind-grabbing insights, not to mention plenty of humor. This is a must-read book by a reporter/editor who has seen more than most of us and is able to describe his travels graphically." Joseph E. lllick Professor of History Emeritus, San Francisco State University
