First Edition ., Museum of Fine Arts, 1962, Tranquebar Press/Westland Ltd, 2012. Softcover. New. Making News, Breaking News, HerOwn Way is about the lives and work of some of the most outstanding women journalists of our time who redefined and gave a whole new meaning to what constitutes news, in terms of values and themes. The groundbreaking work done by these journalists won them the prestigious Chameli Devi Jain Award for Outstanding Women Mediaperson, and like Chameli Devi Jain, a simple housewife who joined the freedom struggle in Delhi, they too exemplify values of independence, courage and dedication. From across the north, south, east and west of India, in different languages, these intrepid women have exposed corruption, child labour and caste massacres, uncovered financial scams, fought against atrocities committed against women, championed human rights and celebrated when their stories have been catalysts for change. In today’s age of tweets and instant information, the early women journalists filed their reports, if lucky typed on an Olivetti typewriter, but most times from a post office, used as a conduit to get reports to the desk. They have come a long way, from the time the profession was a stronghold of men, when they were relegated to covering flower shows and beauty pageants, to the present day, when no area is forbidden territory, be it the Kargil war, terrorist attacks in Kashmir, insurgency in the North-east, art, environmental concerns, consumer rights, and everything else in between. The stories range from the days of Prabha Dutt and Usha Rai, torchbearers for a whole generation of women journalists, to those like Tavleen Singh, Barkha Dutt and Madhu Kishwar, who are in the forefront of the media today. This book also pays tribute to India’s first photographer Homai Vyarawalla, who captured a whole era of great historical change with her lens.

On October 15th,1954,William Willis achieved the impossible.Alone on a sinking raft,battered by nearly four months of storms and wind,exhausted from lack of sleep,he landed at Pago Pago in British Samoa,6,700 miles from his starting point in Callao,Peru.He had sailed not only farther,but also faster than the Kon-Tiki expedition,to complete what has been called "the greatest solo trip sinceCharles Lindbergh's famous flight." In this inspiring book Willis tells the full story of thisepic adventure.It is a saga of raw courage and dogged determination,of a man's faith in himself that could not beweakened by any blow of fate.He set out to prove that castaways,with minimum equipment,could survive; he discovered the unimaginable delight in existing alone with Nature - beyond time and space - where the expected battle with the wind and waves became instead a fusion of himself with the tremendous natural forces around him. Raising money to outfit such a "hair-brained" project was not easy.He searched for months for the seven balsa logs ofthe right size to make his famous raft,which he then christened The Seven Little Sisters.He had to find native workmen to help him build the raft according to his own unique design,and he had to find a way to convey it 700 miles down the coast from Guayaquil to Callao in order to take advantage of the Humboldt current and to avoid,if possible,the worst of the hurricanes.The greatest test began on June 23rd,1954,when he was at last alone at sea, out of sight of land,with only his cat and parrot for company.The spiritual adjustment required to endure the endless,lonely days;the constant activity needed to sail the raft; exhaustion from too little sleep - these were thedaily stresses,as ever present as the wind and the waves.But there were harder trials in store.A mysterious illness almost paralysed him with pain for 30 hours; most of his drinking water went bad; heavy storms ripped his sails.There was the terrible moment when,while trying to free hisfish hook from a shark's mouth,he fell overboard and,with bleeding hand,had to haul himself back with the help of thefrail,frayed fishing line.And finally came the awful realization that the water-soaked balsa logs were sinking lower and lower in the water. It is an extraordinary saga of a man who dared to dream ofthe impossible - and made his dream come true., LONDON.HUTCHINSON,1956., Suffolk, England: Hugh Tempest Radford, 1980. 1st Edition .

This is the first full biography of Freddie Mills,the former British,European,Empire and world light-heavyweightchampion,who died tragically in 1965,apparently having committed suicide.Few people,however,accept that a man of Mills's character and immense courage could have ended his own life,and the popular belief among his friends and thousands of fans and admirers is that he was murdered by gangsters for refusing to pay protection money for his London nightclub. The author,Jack Birtley,has painstakingly researched into Mills's life to unravel the mystery surrounding this much-loved sportsman - a man who made more than £100,000 during his boxing career,but who died with little more than £300in the bank.Where did this money go? Was Mills murdered,orhad mounting pressures - including a secret love affair - forced him to shoot himself? The author has come up with a verdict which will invite the public at large to take a closer look at a man who became a living legend.See also rja2277/6 for HB,1st edn of same title.[Author also wrote The Tragedy of Randolph Turpin,his first book.] Please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk,because of the lighter weight of this item,for correct shipping/P+p quotes- particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!, LONDON.NEL,1978., London: HarperCollins, 2006.

Twenty-One: Coming of Age in World War II: Coming of Age in the Second World War - signed or inscribed book

Paperback, Hardcover, ID: 798885313

Harper Perennial, 2005. 1st Printing. Trade Paperback. Very Good. First paperback printing. Spine creased, ink name on front flyleaf. 2005 Trade Paperback. xiv, 349 pp., plus 16-page P.S. reading group guide. Although frequently overlooked between the American Revolution and the Civil War, the War of 1812 tested a rising generation of American leaders; unified the United States with a renewed sense of national purpose; and set the stage for westward expansion from Mackinac Island to the Gulf of Mexico. USS Constitution, "Old Ironsides," proved the mettle of the fledgling American navy; Oliver Hazard Perry hoisted a flag boasting, "Don't Give Up the Ship"; and Andrew Jackson's ragged force stood behind it's cotton bales at New Orleans and bested the pride of British regulars. Here are the stories of commanding generals such as America's double-dealing James Wilkinson, Great Britain's gallant Sir Isaac Brock, Canada's heroine farm wife Laura Secord, and country doctor William Beanes, whose capture set the stage for Francis Scott Key to write "The Star-Spangled Banner." During the War of 1812, the United States cast off its cloak of colonial adolescence and -- with both humiliating and glorious moments -- found the fire that was to forge a nation.

Six-foot-eight and dyslexic, he is not an obvious candidate for the Border Patrol, which polices the frontier between the United States and Canada, but somehow, as he ambles round the forest bird-watching, he seems to stumble upon every illegal immigrant and drug trafficker in the area. Meanwhile, his father is dealing with diseased dairy cows, his mother battles encroaching dementia, and their neighbour's daughter Madeline flirts with the cannabis underworld..."Border Songs" is an extraordinary love story and a gently satirical celebration of the coincidental and the miraculous. : Review: 'Charming ... A thoughtful, gentle portrait of a small town packed with eccentricity' The Times 'A gifted and original novelist ... Lynch creates a likeable and diverse cast of characters' New York Times 'Wonderful ... tender, sad and leavened with wit ... Lynch has written not just a liberal critique of the war on terror but also a moving, optimistic rebuttal of our paranoia that encourages us to imagine, with Brandon, the possibility of flying over everything that divides us' Washington Post 'Its hero is an imaginative tour de force. Lynch's comic borderland is not only palpable, it is richly metaphoric' Globe and Mail : About the Author: Jim Lynch grew up near Seattle, graduated from the University of Washington, and has worked as a journalist for the Seattle Times and The Oregonian, winning the Livingston Young Journalist Award and the H.L. Mencken Award among other national reporting honours. He is the author of The Highest Tide, a Richard & Judy bestseller. He lives with his wife and their daughter in Olympia, Washington.

First Edition. Hard Cover. 8vo 0007213808 World War II affected the lives of ordinary men and women more directly than any other conflict before or since. This is an unprecedented look at the lives of twenty-one young men who answered their country’s call to arms and left their homes and loved ones to fight in often unfamiliar and far-reaching corners of the globe. Many never returned, and those who did found their homes and countries much changed by long years of war. Most discovered they had become different people: having seen death and destruction on a scale they had never imagined they would witness, the return to civilian life was often far from easy. Now, more than sixty years on, this remarkable generation is fading. Most are now over eighty and around the world more than two thousand veterans of the war are passing away every day. But in this new book by ‘Sunday Times’ bestselling author James Holland, he recounts the real-life stories of twenty-one young men from around the world who served in different services and different theatres of the war. Whether it be the Byers brothers from Canada or Bill Laity from Cornwall, Wlad Rubnikowicz from Poland or Tom Finney from Preston, each began the war with little idea of what lay in store; and yet, as this book shows, each displayed astonishing courage, fortitude and resilience, united by a sense of honour and duty, and bound by the fellowship of their comrades. Often reacting in very different ways to the strange and frequently terrifying situations in which they found themselves, they each suffered hardships and loss, making sacrifices that can only be marvelled at by today's generation. It was a sacrifice that has ensured a lasting peace amongst the warring nations; and if some of these survivors are perplexed by how the world has developed, none doubts the value of what they did all those years ago. Moving, poignant, and conveying all the drama, tension and fear experienced in war, ‘Twenty-One’ is an uplifting tribute to a passing generation, describing the wide range of experiences and extremes these remarkable men and women witnessed during World War II. ., Harper Collins, 2006
