description {

The Camino de Santiago is an ancient path from St Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, walked by tens of thousands of pilgrims since medieval times. Also known as the Way of St. James and the Camino Frances, it covers a distance of almost 800 km.

To absorb the history, to touch the old stone of the buildings and bridges, to walk the path built over the centuries, to see the variety if architectural styles, from Roman and Moorish to medieval, to Gothic and Renaissance, and to be immersed in some of the most breathtakingly beautiful landscapes - is a journey for heart and soul.

For many, the Camino is undertaken with a clear purpose, whether personal, emotional or spiritual. To others it is a challenge in terms of fitness and stamina, to achieve a goal. For experienced trekkers Kim and Malcolm Wells, it became a powerfully spiritual journey, and the common bond of peace and friendship formed among the many pilgrims they met was one of the most rewarding aspects of the experience.

Join the thousands of pilgrims who have walked the ancient Way of St James in Spain. Whether you’re an experienced trekker or an armchair traveller, this warmly written and beautifully illustrated journey will take you into the heart and soul of this historic walk.

Take a river journey in a small boat with Nick Burningham at the helm. Messing About in Earnest is a delightful blend of travel writing, history, geography and real-life adventure.

Nick drifts down the Swan and Canning Rivers in his trusty boat called Earnest, which could be through almost any Australian city - a sort of antipodean 'one man in a boat'. His book takes the reader on the trip of a lifetime with whimsical and humourous stories of the people, places and history he encounters.

A blend of travel writing, historical narrative, geography and personal reflection, spiced with real-life adventure, Messing About in Earnest is many hours of idle pleasure.

Captain James Cook was one of England's ablest navigators. In 1768 he set out in the Endeavor, bound for Tahiti, ostensibly to observe the Transit of Venus. His secret orders, however, provided for charting the coast of New Zealand and searching for 'the Great South Land.'

In October 1996 photographer Richard Polden sailed from Fremantle, Western Australia, bound for London aboard the magnificent Endeavour replica. Richard's photographs from the voyage capture in brilliant colour, the very feel of sailing on the Endeavour, from swabbing the decks to scaling the mainmast, from hauling in the sails to fighting a gale. Complemented throughout with extracts from both Cook's original journals and the reports of the contemporary crew, this book is both a visual delight and a fascinating record.
