Travel Tales Monthly: No. 11 MAY 2015 , Hörbuch...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Michael Brein's Travel Tales Monthly Bookazine Issue No. 11 for May 2015 contains among the best travel stories from Michael's huge collection of about 10,000 travel tales that he has gathered in interviews with nearly 1,750 world travelers and adventurers during his four decades of travel to more than 125 countries throughout the world. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Remember the funny movie with John Candy called Planes, Trains and Automobiles? Well, actually, trains, buses, cars, taxis, VW buses, vans, tuk-tuks, camels, and other miscellaneous transport-related stories are what this issue of Travel Tales Monthly is all about. Not airplanes and ships stories this time, mind you; these are covered elsewhere in the Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series with audiobooks specifically devoted to these particular subjects. In this issue A train, bus, car, ship, airplane, taxi, or other form of travel transport is invariably in the news today. And so it is: there's hardly a day now that a transportation-related incident or accident of some sort or another is not in the news somewhere. Therefore, we're a lot more concerned about the modes of transport that form a very significant part of our travel lives, so, naturally, we're taking a lot closer look at our travel transport these days than we have ever done before. And regarding the psychology of travel, in particular, we should take a much closer look at what actually happens to us on the various forms of transport that we take in our travels and how this all impacts our travel-lives. And so, in The Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series, this is exactly what I do. Transportation stories include the full range of the human land, sea, and air travel transport experience, including a variety of forms of travel transportation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Roelofs. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/039007/bk_acx0_039007_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Time is running out for a teenager searching for his grandfather's lost plane in Northern Canada. Can he trust the intuitions of Trish, the pilot's daughter? In 'The Search for Grizzly One,' Mark Daniels is a sixteen-year-old whose grandfather, along with the pilot of a bush airplane, has disappeared somewhere over northern Alberta. After an extensive aerial search turns up nothing, Mark sets out with Trish on their own search. Following a hunch about what might have happened, the pair treks through the Northern Alberta wilderness. The journey tests every fiber of Mark's being, but along the way, he learns much about himself, the wilderness, and the unbreakable human spirit. Wildlife writer and biologist Don Meredith vividly describes the rugged terrain and harsh elements Trish and Mark endure on their desperate quest to find their loved ones--before it's too late.

In 1928 a U.S. Airmail airplane crashed during a storm somewhere in the Wind River Mountains in Wyoming. The pilot, the plane, the mailbag and a special precious cargo were never found. In 2013 a cowboy searching for some lost cattle stumbled on a remnant of the wrecked airplane. Because of the precious cargo the airplane carried, this discovery triggers a no-holds barred search for the crash site by competing treasure hunters including some who do not hesitate to kill anyone who gets in their way to be the first to find the crash site and the cargo. Kit Andrews and Swifty Olson are recruited to find the crash site under the pretext that the search is for the body of the pilot with no mention of any precious cargo. Soon they find themselves in the middle of a fight for their lives in the wilderness area of the Wind River Mountains.

Dogs, Children, and Other Wild Things
28,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Dogs, Children, and other Wild Things is a collection of ten stories using the personalities of real people in improbable circumstances. It is somewhere between Alice in Wonder Land, and The Wizard of Oz in the first three stories. Three girls face dangers and adventure in a fantasyland of Screamers and Book Worms. Using their own abilities, with assistance from grandpa to get in and out of the fantasy land, they end up with a unique treasure which will serve them well for going to school and acing the tests. The next five stories are about unusual situations, some of them non-human, and how they were resolved. And the last two are love stories, different from those in most romances. The stories can be read independently with enjoyment. However, since the personalities of the members of a real family are woven throughout them, they are best read from first to last. You are suddenly in a forest with a nine foot high bear and a ten foot high bird: Do you stop reading the story, or do you go along for the adventures to the very end? Your sister is a queen in the land of the Screamers. Can you rescue her? 'X' and 'Y' have been eaten by the giant Omni. Will all the computers in the world go bonkers? Are bees like wasps? Can you survive? Are wolves married? Do you have any other Questions? Is the US President about to be killed? Is this a job for Spy Dog? Can you become a billionaire? Ever try the Golden Gas? Have you ever watched a worm? What did you think about? Ever been ignored by someone you love? Did you try raisins? From your front yard you wave at an airplane. Can it be too high for you to hear it? Get the answers to these questions by reading, Dogs, Children, and other Wild Things Leo Farr is happily married and has five children and five grandchildren. He is presently retired from the State of California and living in Sacramento, California. Over the years, as a counselor and supervisor in the Department of Rehabilitation, as a coach for youth sports, and as a father he has shown a deep interest in the development of children. He has written one other book, Stacey and her Lessons in Learning.

- A son (in the often anthologized 'Sleepy Time Gal') competes with his parents to tell 'a simple story' about a poor boy/rich girl romance that 'happened many years ago in the woods by a lake in northern Michigan' . . . and the song he wrote her that became famous....- A champion pole-vaulter jumps out of an airplane in France on D-Day wearing a parachute that fails to open; he survives but, as his son says, 'Imagine a man falling from the stars. It's a long way down...'..- Thrasher, in Paris, hears geese honking in the sky and Barbara all the way from Iowa saying, 'Hold still . . . I'm going to kiss you now...'Stories in Somewhere Geese Are Flying were written in many places--Michigan, Paris, Iowa, Slovakia, Oregon, Greece, Idaho, and on the Isle of Skye.

History of Aerodynamics
74,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the Foreword: 'John Anderson's book represents a milestone in aviation literature. For the first time aviation enthusiasts - both specialists and popular readers alike - possess an authoritative history of aerodynamic theory. Not only is this study authoritative, it is also highly readable and linked to the actual (and more familiar) story of how the airplane evolved. The book touches on all the major theorists and their contributions and, most important, the historical context in which they worked to move the science of aerodynamics forward.' Von Hardesty, Smithsonian Institution From the reviews: 'Something of the unexpected quality of this book can be inferred from its full title A History of Aerodynamics and Its Impact on Flying Machines. Pilots tend to suppose that the science of aerodynamics began empirically, somewhere around the time of Lilienthal and the Wrights, and that aerodynamics and manned flight are roughly coeval. It is therefore surprising to come upon a photograph of the Wright Flyer as late as page 242 of the 478-page volume.' Peter Garrison, Flying 'This book successfully straddles the boundary that separates a text book from a history book. It is of equal interest to both the aerodynamicist and the layman. The textual balance achieved by the author has resulted in a book that is enjoyable and educational.' Earl See, American Aviation Historical Society Newsletter

Emp Survival: 10 Dangerous Places You Should Av...
6,70 CHF *

What are you going to do when an EMP strikes? Are you ready for all of the chaos and uncertainty that is going to arise when the country goes off the grid and some of your most basic daily habits can no longer happen? This is exactly what the enemies of this country would just love to do and many people think this is just what they are working on. This guidebook is going to present you with the top 10 places you should not be when an EMP attack occurs. Since the country will be off the grid, it is basically not safe to be anywhere that would rely on electricity or has a circuit because they are not going to be working any more. Take for example the first place on our list; being in an airplane. When this attack occurs, you will be stuck in a falling plane with no way to get out; if you are lucky, the pilot might be able to successfully make an emergency landing, but you probably will not be that lucky. Take a look through this guidebook to see some of the worst places to be when an EMP attack occurs so you can make sure to be somewhere else and stay safe.
