Auf der Suche nach dem ultimativen Kick Sonne, Meer und Weite – für einen Surfer ist das nicht genug. Er braucht die große, die immer größere Welle. Bruce Pike ist in seinem Leben viele Wellen geritten, er weiß um die Faszination und die Tücken dieses Sports. Dabei fing alles so harmlos an, in seinem kleinen Kaff an der Westküste Australiens: Als Kind tauchte er mit seinem Freund Loonie um die Wette, es ging darum, so lange wie möglich den Atem anzuhalten. Bald entdeckten sie gemeinsam das Surfen – und forderten immer waghalsiger den Tod heraus ...

In 1969, Ricahrd Oakes and Adam Fortunate Eagle, then known as Adam Nordwall, instigated an invasion of Alcatraz by American Indians. From the mainland, Fortunate Eagle orchestrated the events, but they assumed an uncontrollable life of their own. Fortunate Eagle provides an intimate memoir of the occupation and the events leading up to it. Accompanied by a variety of photographs capturing the people, places, and actions involved, Heart of the Rock brings these turbulent times vividly to life. From the start, public support was strong. Money poured in from around the country. Sausalito sailors and their "navy" transported supplies and people to the island. San Fransisco restaurants sent Thanksgiving dinner. A school was started; chores and responsibilities were shared by everyone. Alcatraz became home, and American Indians of all tribes became a family. But the occupation lasted two years, and Oakes, who had become it spokesman, left after his stepdaughter's death on the island. Memoranda from the White House recommended doing "anything" to turn the public against the occupation so it could be ended. Water and electricity were cut off, reports of conflict on the island began appearing in the press, and suspicious fires burned five buildings. Nevertheless, the occupation of Alcatraz remains what historian Vine Deloria, Jr. has called "perhaps the most significant Indian action since the Little Bighorn."

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.

Letters to the Rock is the story of a spiritual journey, told in poems, starting from reliance on worldly concerns, through conflict, to the healing process, and eventual trust in the True Rock, Jesus Christ. The poems are simple, honest and moving. They will tug on your heart-strings and inspire your spirit. They journal a painful emotional struggle, followed by deep spiritual healing, to the ultimate arrival at joy in faith and trust in God. Leonie Phoenix is an avid believer that God can transform any situation to bring about good. She hopes that through sharing her experiences, she can help others find new meaning and purpose in their lives. She lives in the Caribbean with her husband and children. “Fascinating and beautiful. I like the whole idea, and how it is expressed. It is excellent food for thought.” Brenda Quin, co-author of That Still Small Voice. “Thought-provoking... The writer has understood that the suffering endured now will lead to eventual true joy if the individual uses it to empty him or herself of their worldly desires and replaces them with the in-dwelling Spirit of God, who refills us with the peace and love and mind of Christ.” Peter Westin, co-author of That Still Small Voice. “I enjoyed the poems very much. They conjured up many images and the message from the writing has helped me with my own personal inner struggles. I got a deep understanding of the writer. She realises God doesn’t always answer her pleas and cries in the way she wants. But, no matter where this journey takes her, she will always win through. She has learnt to trust God. She praises Him and her heart is now on fire within God’s warmth.” Colin Wilson, author of “The Judith Code.” “Leonie’s writings are an expression of her very heart, body, soul and mind. Cathartic and healing, her pen creates a space for spirituality which takes her readers from the underworld to the divine. She's the pilgrim poet.” Quincy Brown, Performing Artiste and Radio Personality.

Margo Solod's Cuttyhunk: Life on the Rock contains a suite of galvanizing stories from her 15 years as staffer, innkeeper and cook of the Allen House, Cuttyhunk's finest (and only) inn. This book is essentially a love story, the kind that, like the best love, comes complete with recipes. The kind of love story that encompasses a barefoot Jackie Kennedy; Gertrude, a bloody 378-lb swordfish kept on ice in a bathtub; Jesse-the-dog and Tom-the-cat-not-to-be-trifled-with; and any number of ways to cook a lobster. Vivid, colorful, and touching, this memoir is well worth the reading and cooking time.
