A classic of travel writing, A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush is Eric Newby´s iconic account of his journey through one of the most remote and beautiful wildernesses on earth. It was 1956, and Eric Newby was earning an improbable living in the chaotic family business of London haute couture. Pining for adventure, Newby sent his friend Hugh Carless the now-famous cable - ´´Can you travel Nuristan June?´´ - setting in motion a legendary journey from Mayfair to Afghanistan and the mountains of the Hindu Kush, northeast of Kabul. Inexperienced and ill prepared (their preparations involved nothing more than some tips from a Welsh waitress), the amateurish rogues embark on a month of adventure and hardship in one of the most beautiful wildernesses on earth - a journey that adventurers with more experience and sense may never have undertaken. With good humour, sharp wit and keen observation, the charming narrative style of A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush would soon crystallise Newby´s reputation as one of the greatest travel writers of all time. One of the greatest travel classics from one of Britain´s best-loved travel writers, this edition includes an epilogue from Newby´s travelling companion, Hugh Carless, and a prologue from one of Newby´s greatest proponents, Evelyn Waugh. 1.

Roaming India in 1939 and the early 1940s, two flawed but extraordinary men latch onto each other with shocking consequences as each follows an ill-fated quest for ´´enlightenment.” Moses, a Polish Jew, is fleeing both the Nazis and his own failed marriage; Sahadeva, an itinerant Hindu monk, is trying to resolve his crisis of religious belief. Both men find themselves embroiled in hardship, shame, and chaos, stumbling into scandal and ultimately tragedy. As they clutch obsessively to observance and mysticism - Moses to ancient texts of Jewish symbolism and prophesy, Sahadeva to Hindu rituals—they must confront the ultimate question of whether they are really seeking or merely hiding, and whether they can ever end the cycle of trouble they seem to bring upon themselves. To answer these questions they look first to each other, but must finally face their own shortcomings and fears and stare into the face of ´´Adam Kadmon,” the name the Kabbalah gives to the original soul from which all men are descended. Will they ever be able to honestly see the damage they have caused and seek forgiveness—or will they continue running from themselves? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dolph Amick.

My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker is based on Melissa Burch´s experiences as a war journalist for BBC, CBS, and other networks. Her team was one of the first documentary crews allowed in the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, and she was featured in a New York Times story about her time in Afghanistan. She was just in her 20s when she traveled with the moujahedeen, filmed an attack on a Soviet convoy, slept with an Afghan commander, and climbed 14,000-foot mountains in the Hindu Kush. My Journey Through War and Peace examines how, through outward action and inward exploration, life can unfold in mysterious ways, far beyond cultural and family expectations. In looking back at this momentous decade, Burch shares why she pursued such dangerous and difficult circumstances at such a young age and continued to live on the edge. She now understands that she was seeking self-discovery, a connection to something greater, and ultimately inner peace. This exciting memoir will resonate with fans of Eat, Pray, Love, Wild, and other popular memoirs that describe extraordinary inner and outer journeys. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Melissa Burch.

Okay, let´s get one thing straight. I didn´t write this book to de-convert anyone. Honest. So, if you´re a devout Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Mormon, Catholic, Scientologist, or whatever, you just keep on doing what you´re doing. No offense, but, as long as you´re a good person who doesn´t try to shove your beliefs down my throat or protest at military funerals, I really couldn´t give a rodent´s rectum about your spirituality. It´s none of my business. Go to church. Don´t eat pork. Worship Ganesh. Pray your rosary. Jump on couches and pretend you´re on Oprah? Whatever. If it keeps you from going on a multi-state killing spree armed with grenades and an Uzi, knock yourself out! For your information, I wrote this book, well, for your information. That´s it. Over the years I´ve been asked more and more how I went from being a Catholic to a teen atheist to a rabid Bible thumper (with a mullet!) to a (somewhat) mild-mannered atheist and I´ve always said, "It´s a really long story. I´ll write a book about it someday. I promise". Now, after repeating this oath a bazillion or two times, frankly, I´m tired of stalling. So, instead of procrastinating more or becoming rude to (mostly) well-meaning folks who are just curious, here you go. I done wrote a book about it. So if this book offends you, don´t launch a campaign to re-convert me. Don´t carpet bomb me with hellfire and brimstone emails. If you´re really pissed off, I´m so nice I´ll give you a list of names and home addresses of all the people who´ve pestered me for the story contained in this audiobook. So go bother them! It´s their fault this book exists, not mine! Incidentally, if you feel so inclined, you can pray for me. That´s cool. Whatever lights your altar candles, partner. That´s none of my business either. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Hines. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/068469/bk_acx0_068469_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Witch hunts, slavery, nuclear weapons, and the meaning of ´´The Star-Spangled Banner´´ (It´s not what you think).We live in an age of cognitive dissonance, when people struggle to reconcile personal feelings with social norms, and many strike painful compromises. Gods of the Flesh unpacks the customs we take for granted and explores how they evolved. Here you´ll find the information they didn´t teach in church or school. How animals communicate, how Buddha estimated the age of the Earth, why God´s wife was (almost) erased from the Bible, and why millions of spiritual people are atheists. You will learn to shatter paradigms, build your own spiritual practice, get in touch with your body, and create unique purposes in life.
