A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush:HarperPress. ePub edition Eric Newby
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.

The Shreemad Bhagavatam is a scripture unlike any other. It is the last and greatest work of the great sage, Sri Vedavyasa, and serves as the culmination of all the Vedas and Puranas. Above all the many things it accomplishes, it tells us that God has, and continues to, incarnate in many forms to make Himself known to His children. He walks with them, talks with them, laughs with them - He lives with them. So how can we come to know Him? This is why we have the Shreemad Bhagavatam, the crown jewel of Hindu holy scripture. When it is expounded to us by a true living embodiment of the Divine like Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda, we have something incomparable to anything else - we have a firsthand experience of God Himself. Do not simply read this book. Relive every experience, every word, in the core of your heart and you will find that God doesn´t exist in some far away plane, nor is He confined to the scriptures of yesteryear. He lives in the heart of every living being today. Find Him, love Him and be free.
(1994 ´Delmark´) (66:14/11) Nach 60 Jahren sein Album-Debut - verrückt. Hat mit dem Chicagoblues-Klischee nichts am Hut. T-Bone Walker, mit einem Schuß seines alten Weggefährten Nat King Cole. Die Blues Swingers sind eine 9-köpfige traditionelle R&B-Bigband. Ein wunderschönes Album / beautiful debut. He played with jazz greats like Ben Webster, knew Nat King Cole very well, and his guitar teacher was the great T-Bone Walker! And that was his style. Great 1940s Blues and R&B performed by his great 9-piece band. A highly recommended album. Guitarist/ vocalist Floyd McDaniel has been playing for over half a century in an urban hipster´s world of jump and jive, of rug cutters, geets and flivvers, all cited in the lyrics of his recordings. Its resources are T-Bone Walker - influenced blues, jazz of every variety with a Charlie Christian shadow, hokum, stage evues, wasboard bands, a long run with the Ink Spots and success in the 1940s and 1950 with the Blazes on United Records. Recently he´s been involved with the Blues Swingers, a hard - swinging R&B band led by tenor saxist/arranger Dave Clark with four horns up front and a rhythm section kicked by veteran drummers Kansas Fields (records with Bechet, Mezzrow, BG, Condon, Byas, Bird, etc.) or Hindu Hendersen, a startling if belated discovery. Floyds played the Michigan Ave. bridge, mob joints, the Cotton Club, the ´33 World´s Fair, the Apollo and now - your CD player.
I´ve got no choice but to warn you. Read further, the truth will be revealed and it will enslave you. You don´t want to know how the Universe works. I know I didn´t. I don´t care who you are or what you believe-Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Wiccan, Atheist, anything and everything. You´re all wrong. The following is a story of my life after I got drafted by God to fight the minions of darkness. Jehovah of the Holy Bible exists and holy warriors are needed to defend us. If you´re wise, you´ll set this book down now and walk away. Keep your illusions; they won´t hurt you. Learn too much, open the door that is better left closed, and you´ll be fighting by my side.

From Afghanistan´s Hindu Kush peaks and sunbaked Helmand Valley to Baghdad, Mosul and Ramadi in Iraq, American snipers have braved heart-pounding situations to hit their human targets dead-on. Few military feats stir the imagination like the image of a pair of riflemen waiting quietly in a building, a bomb crater, or a mountain pass for a Taliban or Al Qaeda fighter to walk into their crosshairs. Sniper presents real-life tales from the military´s frontline snipers---their hits and their misses, the anguish of loss, and the anxiety of the first kill. Authors Gina Cavallaro and Matt Larsen provide riveting accounts of American soldiers and marines on the battlefield, and take a rare look at how Rangers and Special Forces snipers train and operate, and how the war on terror has changed the role of military snipers. 1.
