  • Playing Cards in Cairoby Hugh Miles

  • Beyond The Pyramidsby Douglas Kennedy

    Little, Brown Book Group 2011; Not Available

    BEYOND THE PYRAMIDS is a delightfully wry chronicle of travels through a country of incongruity - an Egypt encompassing a diversity of cultural influences which often belies its image of 'archaeological theme park'. With an acute eye for the unusual, the interesting or the plain absurd, Douglas Kennedy takes us on a continually surprising tour beyond... more...

  • In God's Countryby Douglas Kennedy

    Little, Brown Book Group 2011; Not Available

    Though much has been written about the political implications of the religious revival which has engulfed America in recent years, a question remains unanswered: what pushes its people into 'declaring for Jesus'? Douglas Kennedy spent a long hot summer cruising through that expanse of the American South known as 'The Bible Belt' exploring that question.... more...

  • Racing Pigs And Giant Marrowsby Harry Pearson

    Little, Brown Book Group 2013; Not Available

    Following his acclaimed book about football in the north-east, THE FAR CORNER, Harry Pearson vowed that his next project would not involve hanging around outdoors on days so cold that itinerant dogs had to be detached from lamp-posts by firemen. It would be about the summer: specifically, about a summer of shows and fairs in the north of England. ... more...

  • A Tall Man In A Low Landby Harry Pearson

    Little, Brown Book Group 2013; Not Available

    Most British travel writers head south for a destination that is hot, exotic, dangerous or all three. Harry Pearson chose to head in the opposite direction for a country which is damp, safe and of legendary banality: Belgium. But can any nation whose most famous monument is a statue of a small boy urinating really be that dull? Pearson lived there... more...

  • The Far Cornerby Harry Pearson

    Little, Brown Book Group 2013; Not Available

    A book in which Wilf Mannion rubs shoulders with The Sunderland Skinhead: recollections of Len Shakleton blight the lives of village shoppers: and the appointment of Kevin Keegan as manager of Newcastle is celebrated by a man in a leather stetson, crooning 'For The Good Times' to the accompaniment of a midi organ, THE FAR CORNER is a tale of heroism... more...

  • Great British Journeysby Nicholas Crane

    Orion Publishing Group 2010; Not Available

    Intrepid presenter Nicholas Crane investigates eight epic journeys, following in the footsteps of our greatest indigenous explorers.

  • A Ride In The Neon Sunby Josie Dew

    Little, Brown Book Group 2012; Not Available

    It's not easy landing unprepared in a country like Japan. The eccentricities of the calendar, the indecipherable postal system, not to mention the alien alphabet, language and culture, have all to be confronted before the disorientated traveller can feel at ease. Trying to ride a bicycle through the streets of one of the most congested cities in the... more...

  • The Sun In My Eyesby Josie Dew

    Little, Brown Book Group 2012; Not Available

    Following on from the hugely enjoyable A RIDE IN THE NEON SUN, Josie takes us on the second part of her journey through Japan; a country whose keyword is peace, yet spends millions each year on high-tech armament. Josie's travels are as fascinating as they are varied; she endures a horrific storm at sea, samples the deadly puffer fish and visits the... more...

  • Travels In A Strange Stateby Josie Dew

    Little, Brown Book Group 2012; Not Available

    By most people's standards, Josie Dew is hugely adventurous. By American standards, she is completely insane. For Americans drive everywhere: through cinemas, restaurants, banks, even trees. But driving past Josie as she pedalled across America was a new and alarming experience. On her eight-month journey Josie experienced it all; race riots... more...
