An Audio Bundle: Climb & High Audiobook

An Audio Bundle: Climb & High

Winner of Publisher's Weekly 'Listen Up' Award. Year after year, in spite of monumental dangers, climbers return to the world's most difficult mountains, whether it's the cliffs of Yosemite or the peaks of the Himalaya. At these places, even the most cautious climber must accept the possibilities of moving unroped to save time, braving terrain vulnerable to rockfall, trusting afternoon thunderstorms to hold off long enough to get below treeline. Mistakes, bad weather and bad luck often lead to death. Climb offers harrowing accounts of extreme mountaineering and its potentially fatal consequences. Everest and K2--two of the most feared and respected peaks in the world. High offers a unique perspective on climbing these two peaks, from early exploration disasters, to the modern tragedies. These stories remind us, in vivid written accounts, why Everest and K2 are among the world's most dangerous places, yet why the world's best climbers can't stay away from them.

Voyages and Travels of an Indian Interpreter and Trader Audiobook

Voyages and Travels of an Indian Interpreter and Trader

Author: John Long Narrator: Nick Adams Release Date: March 2020

In 1768 John Long set out from Gravesend in England, bound for Canada and a position as an articled clerk. Quickly developing an affection for the First Nations people he encountered, he determined to learn native languages and thereby make him useful in the 'Indian Trade' living first among Mohawks at Cahnuaga (Kahnawake) and later, among Ojibwa and Cree people north of Lake Superior. Long's journal provides a thrilling depiction the life of a fur trader in the late eighteenth century. It is a dangerous world, where starvation, torture, murder, war, disease and misfortune are constant threats. Although clearly writing for a contemporary English readership, with all the attitudes and sensibilities that required, Long's affection for and comfort with the First Nations people with whom he lives and works comes through strongly - indeed, even when offered comfortable accommodation within the officers quarters at Michilimackinac, he prefers to continue to live outside the fort with his First Nation friends and partners. The stories he tells about life on the fur trade frontier and the hazards and dangers he encounters are described with frankness and humour, neither aggrandizing his own achievements or diminishing those of others. While Long's 'Voyages and Travels' has been republished a number of times. it is still not well known. This is a tragedy, as few other works provide as clear and engaging picture of life on the fur trade frontier.
