Grand Prize Winner of the 2015 Green Book Festival Mark Sundeen's new book, The Unsettlers, is coming in January 2017 from Riverhead Books In 2000, Daniel Suelo left his life savings-all thirty dollars of it-in a phone booth. He has lived without money-and with a newfound sense of freedom and security-ever since. The Man Who Quit Money is an account of how one man learned to live, sanely and happily, without earning, receiving, or spending a single cent. Suelo doesn't pay taxes, or accept food stamps or welfare. He lives in caves in the Utah canyonlands, forages wild foods and gourmet discards. He no longer even carries an I.D. Yet he manages to amply fulfill not only the basic human needs-for shelter, food, and warmth-but, to an enviable degree, the universal desires for companionship, purpose, and spiritual engagement. In retracing the surprising path and guiding philosophy that led Suelo into this way of life, Sundeen raises provocative and riveting questions about the decisions we all make, by default or by design, about how we live-and how we might live better. From the Trade Paperback edition.

20. yüzyıl edebiyatının en ilginç kişiliklerinden Fernando Pessoa, kendi adının yanı sıra kendisinin farklı yanlarını yansıtan hayalî şairlerin adlarıyla yazdığı yapıtlarıyla dünyanın en gizemli şairlerinden, yazarlarından biridir. 1935 yılında ölen Pessoa, ancak ölümünden bir yıl sonra, olağanüstü zengin düş dünyasıyla üne erişti. Yazarın şiirleri dışında sağlığında yayınlanan biricik anlatısı olan Anarşist Banker’de, iki arkadaşın bir yemek sonrasında başlayan sohbeti, okuru ‘burjuva toplumu’nun derinliklerine sürükler. İki arkadaştan biri, hem banker, hem de anarşist olduğunu söyler. Ona göre, bankerlik, gerçekleşebilir tek anarşist eylemdir. Pessoa, ilk basımı 1922’de yapılmış olan Anarşist Banker’de, antik çağ felsefesinin diyalog yöntemini izleyerek, günümüz burjuva toplumunun ikiyüzlülüklerini, haksızlıklarını gözler önüne serer, ince bir alay içeren, zekice akıl yürütmelerle paranın iktidarını sorguya çeker.

The radical search for the simple life in today's America. On a frigid April night, a classically trained opera singer, five months pregnant, and her husband, a former marine biologist, disembark an Amtrak train in La Plata, Missouri, assemble two bikes, and pedal off into the night, bound for a homestead they've purchased, sight unseen. Meanwhile, a horticulturist, heir to the Great Migration that brought masses of African Americans to Detroit, and her husband, a product of the white flight from it, have turned to urban farming to revitalize the blighted city they both love. And near Missoula, Montana, a couple who have been at the forefront of organic farming for decades navigate what it means to live and raise a family ethically. A work of immersive journalism steeped in a distinctively American social history and sparked by a personal quest, The Unsettlers traces the search for the simple life through the stories of these new pioneers and what inspired each of them to look for -- or create -- a better existence. Captivating and clear-eyed, it dares us to imagine what a sustainable, ethical, authentic future might actually look like.

Kentin yükseklerinde uzun bir sütunun üzerinde Mutlu Prens'in heykeli yükselmekteydi. Prens'in tüm gövdesi küçük saf altın yapraklarla kaplanmıştı. Gözlerinin yerinde iki parlak safir sönüyor, kılıcının kabzasında kırmızı bir yakut parlıyordu. Gerçekten çok beğeniliyordu Prens. Şehir meclisi üyelerinden biri ince bir sanat anlayışı olduğunu kanıtlamak istercesine, heykel hakkında ''Bir rüzgargülü kadar güzel,'' yorumunu yapmış, sonra da insanların onun pratik düşünen biri olmadığı düşüncesine kapılacağı kaygısıyla ''Ama onun kadar işe yaramıyor!'' diye eklemişti.

It was just a godforsaken mountainside, but no place on earth was richer in silver. For a bustling, enterprising America, this was the great bonanza. The dreamers, the restless, the builders, the vultures—they were lured by the glittering promise of instant riches and survived the brutal hardships of a mining camp to raise a legendary boom town. But some sought more than wealth. Val Trevallion, a loner haunted by a violent past. Grita Redaway, a radiantly beautiful actress driven by an unfulfilled need. Two fiercely independent spirits, together they rose above the challenges of the Comstock to stake a bold claim on the future. From the Paperback edition.

J. Richard “Dick” Steffy stood inside the limestone hall of the Crusader castle in Cyprus and looked at the wood fragments arrayed before him. They were old beyond belief. For more than two millennia they had remained on the sea floor, eaten by worms and soaking up seawater until they had the consistency of wet cardboard. There were some 6,000 pieces in all, and Steffy’s job was to put them all back together in their original shape like some massive, ancient jigsaw puzzle. He had volunteered for the job even though he had no qualifications for it. For twenty-five years he’d been an electrician in a small, land-locked town in Pennsylvania. He held no advanced degrees—his understanding of ships was entirely self-taught. Yet he would find himself half a world away from his home town, planning to reassemble a ship that last sailed during the reign of Alexander the Great, and he planned to do it using mathematical formulas and modeling techniques that he’d developed in his basement as a hobby. The first person ever to reconstruct an ancient ship from its sunken fragments, Steffy said ships spoke to him. Steffy joined a team, including friend and fellow scholar George Bass, that laid a foundation for the field of nautical archaeology. Eventually moving to Texas A&M University, his lack of the usual academic credentials caused him to be initially viewed with skepticism by the university’s administration. However, his impressive record of publications and his skilled teaching eventually led to his being named a full professor. During the next thirty years of study, reconstruction, and modeling of submerged wrecks, Steffy would win a prestigious MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant and would train most of the preeminent scholars in the emerging field of nautical archaeology. Richard Steffy’s son Loren, an accomplished journalist, has mined family memories, archives at Texas A&M and elsewhere, his father’s papers, and interviews with former colleagues to craft not only a professional biography and adventure story of the highest caliber, but also the first history of a field that continues to harvest important new discoveries from the depths of the world’s oceans.

»Captains Courageous« is the adventure story of Harvey Cheyne, spoilt son of an American billionaire. On a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, the young man goes overboard and is saved by fishermen from Newfoundland. The men don’t believe the story of Harvey’s wealth and treat him like one of their own. Harvey has to work hard and live the life of an ordinary fisher. At first, he is unable to cope with the new challenges, but finally he becomes stronger and learns to judge life from a different perspective. Rudyard Kipling was born in 1865 in Bombay as son of an Anglo-American family. At the age of five, he was taken to England where he was educated. He returned to India as a young man and started working as a journalist and novelist. His most popular fictional works were »The Jungle Book« (1894) and »Kim« (1901). In 1907 Kipling was the youngest and first English author to receive the Nobel Price for literature. He died in London in 1936.

The Riveting Account of the American Who Inspired Kipling's Classic Tale and the John Huston Movie In the year 1838, a young adventurer, surrounded by his native troops and mounted on an elephant, raised the American flag on the summit of the Hindu Kush in the mountainous wilds of Afghanistan. He declared himself Prince of Ghor, Lord of the Hazarahs, spiritual and military heir to Alexander the Great. The true story of Josiah Harlan, a Pennsylvania Quaker and the first American ever to enter Afghanistan, has never been told before, yet the life and writings of this extraordinary man echo down the centuries, as America finds itself embroiled once more in the land he first explored and described 180 years ago. Soldier, spy, doctor, naturalist, traveler, and writer, Josiah Harlan wanted to be a king, with all the imperialist hubris of his times. In an extraordinary twenty-year journey around Central Asia, he was variously employed as surgeon to the Maharaja of Punjab, revolutionary agent for the exiled Afghan king, and then commander in chief of the Afghan armies. In 1838, he set off in the footsteps of Alexander the Great across the Hindu Kush and forged his own kingdom, only to be ejected from Afghanistan a few months later by the invading British. Using a trove of newly discovered documents and Harlan's own unpublished journals, Ben Macintyre's The Man Who Would Be King tells the astonishing true story of the man who would be the first and last American king.

An intimate look at the power of intrusive thoughts, how our brains can turn against us, and living with obsessive compulsive disorder Have you ever had a strange urge to jump from a tall building or steer your car into oncoming traffic? You are not alone. In this captivating fusion of science, history, and personal memoir, David Adam explores the weird thoughts that exist within every mind, and how they drive millions of us toward obsession and compulsion. Adam, an editor at Nature and an accomplished science writer, has suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder for twenty years, and The Man Who Couldn't Stop is his unflinchingly honest attempt to understand the condition and his experiences. What might lead an Ethiopian schoolgirl to eat a wall of her house, piece by piece, or a pair of brothers to die beneath an avalanche of household junk that they had compulsively hoarded? At what point does a harmless idea, a snowflake in a clear summer sky, become a blinding blizzard of unwanted thoughts? Drawing on the latest research on the brain, as well as historical accounts of patients and their treatments, this is a book that will challenge the way you think about what is normal and what is mental illness. Told with fierce clarity, humor, and urgent lyricism, this extraordinary book is both the haunting story of a personal nightmare and a fascinating doorway into the darkest corners of our minds.
