Phoenix, Arizona (the Firewalk, the Apache Trail, the Native American Spa, the Cowboy Ranch, the Awa Audiobook

Phoenix, Arizona (the Firewalk, the Apache Trail, the Native American Spa, the Cowboy Ranch, the Awa

Author: Pearl Howie Narrator: Pearl Howie Release Date: September 2021

From No. 1 best selling Self-Help, Counselling and Travel author Pearl Howie – the audiobook of her mini-guide to Phoenix, Arizona. There’s a reason this place is called Phoenix. We talk about awakening, awareness and other terms in healing, they’ve become quite the buzz words (along with “woke,”) but, for me, what I would call my awakening was a momentary death of ego and a rebirth of mind, body and spirit. Was it the firewalk, the driving, the teachers I met along the way? …or just the Native American ritual in a world class spa? I’ve experienced so many types of healing - all I know is that what works for one person is wrong for another. Every body is different. Although I started writing these mini-guides to share the hotel, spa and the rest, the retreat in a box I dreamt of when I first began Pearl Escapes, they are also just stories ...for the unadventurous adventurer, as well as the keen explorer, we each have our own way of experiencing life. From the Amazon Best Selling author of the 'Camino de la Luna' series and the Pearl Escapes guides. 'You will come away feeling as if she was sharing with you personally and will want to read more of her life adventures.” “I’ve just booked my first holiday in 13 years!” 'To me, you are a hero... You have learned to take something negative in your life and make it a positive... a gift to others. It doesn't get any better than that. Don't doubt that you are capable of helping others... in terms of other of life's difficulties... What an adventure!' Susan Jeffers, Ph.D., author of 'Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway' Not small, just travel size.

Driven: The Secret Lives of Taxi Drivers Audiobook

Driven: The Secret Lives of Taxi Drivers

Author: Marcello Di Cintio Narrator: Roger Wayne Release Date: August 2021

In conversations with drivers ranging from veterans of foreign wars to Indigenous women protecting one another, Di Cintio explores the borderland of the North American taxi. 'The taxi,' writes Marcello Di Cintio, 'is a border.' Occupying the space between public and private, a cab brings together people who might otherwise never have met-yet most of us sit in the back and stare at our phones. Nowhere else do people occupy such intimate quarters and share so little. In a series of interviews with drivers, their backgrounds ranging from the Iraqi National Guard, to the Westboro Baptist Church, to an arranged marriage that left one woman stranded in a foreign country with nothing but a suitcase, Driven seeks out those missed conversations, revealing the unknown stories that surround us. Travelling across borders of all kinds, from battlefields and occupied lands to midnight fares and Tim Hortons parking lots, Di Cintio chronicles the many journeys each driver made merely for the privilege to turn on their rooflight. Yet these lives aren't defined by tragedy or frustration but by ingenuity and generosity, hope and indomitable hard work. From night school and sixteen-hour shifts to schemes for athletic careers and the secret Shakespeare of Dylan's lyrics, Di Cintio's subjects share the passions and triumphs that drive them.

God, Human, Animal, Machine: Technology, Metaphor, and the Search for Meaning Audiobook

God, Human, Animal, Machine: Technology, Metaphor, and the Search for Meaning

Author: Meghan O'gieblyn Narrator: Rebecca Lowman Release Date: August 2021

A strikingly original exploration of what it might mean to be authentically human in the age of artificial intelligence, from the author of the critically-acclaimed Interior States. 'Meghan O'Gieblyn is a brilliant and humble philosopher, and her book is an explosively thought-provoking, candidly personal ride I wished never to end. . .This book is such an original synthesis of ideas and disclosures. It introduces what will soon be called the O'Gieblyn genre of essay writing." --Heidi Julavits, author of The Folded Clock For most of human history the world was a magical and enchanted place ruled by forces beyond our understanding. The rise of science and Descartes's division of mind from world made materialism our ruling paradigm, in the process asking whether our own consciousness--i.e., souls--might be illusions. Now the inexorable rise of technology, with artificial intelligences that surpass our comprehension and control, and the spread of digital metaphors for self-understanding, the core questions of existence--identity, knowledge, the very nature and purpose of life itself--urgently require rethinking. Meghan O'Gieblyn tackles this challenge with philosophical rigor, intellectual reach, essayistic verve, refreshing originality, and an ironic sense of contradiction. She draws deeply and sometimes humorously from her own personal experience as a formerly religious believer still haunted by questions of faith, and she serves as the best possible guide to navigating the territory we are all entering.

A Course Called America: Fifty States, Five Thousand Fairways, and the Search for the Great American Audiobook

A Course Called America: Fifty States, Five Thousand Fairways, and the Search for the Great American

Author: Tom Coyne Narrator: Jacques Roy Release Date: May 2021

Globe-trotting golfer Tom Coyne has finally come home. And he's ready to play all of it. After playing hundreds of courses overseas in the birthplace of golf, ​Coyne, the New York Times bestselling author of A Course Called Ireland and A Course Called Scotland, returns to his own birthplace and delivers a rollicking love letter to golf in the United States. In the span of one unforgettable year, Coyne crisscrosses the country in search of its greatest golf experience, playing every course to ever host a US Open, along with more than two hundred hidden gems and heavyweights, visiting all fifty states to find a better understanding of his home country and countrymen. Coyne's journey begins where the US Open and US Amateur got their start, historic Newport Country Club in Rhode Island. As he travels from the oldest and most elite of links to the newest and most democratic, Coyne finagles his way onto coveted first tees (Shinnecock, Oakmont, Chicago GC) between rounds at off-the-map revelations, like ranch golf in Eastern Oregon and homemade golf in the Navajo Nation. He marvels at the golf miracle hidden in the sand hills of Nebraska, and plays an unforgettable midnight game under bright sunshine on the summer solstice in Fairbanks, Alaska. More than just a tour of the best golf the United States has to offer, Coyne's quest connects him with hundreds of American golfers, each from a different background but all with one thing in common: pride in welcoming Coyne to their course. Trading stories and swing tips with caddies, pros, and golf buddies for the day, Coyne adopts the wisdom of one of his hosts in Minnesota: the best courses are the ones you play with the best people. But, in the end, only one stop on Coyne's journey can be ranked the Great American Golf Course. Throughout his travels, he invites golfers to debate and help shape his criteria for judging the quintessential American course. Should it be charmingly traditional or daringly experimental? An architectural showpiece or a natural wonder? Countless conversations and gut instinct lead him to seek out a course that feels bold and idealistic, welcoming yet imperfect, with a little revolutionary spirit and a damn good hot dog at the turn. He discovers his long-awaited answer in the most unlikely of places. Packed with fascinating tales from American golf history, comic road misadventures, illuminating insights into course design, and many a memorable round with local golfers and celebrity guests alike, A Course Called America is an epic narrative travelogue brimming with heart and soul.

Mud, Rocks, Blazes: Letting Go on the Applachian Trail Audiobook

Mud, Rocks, Blazes: Letting Go on the Applachian Trail

Author: Heather Anderson Narrator: Chelsea Stephens Release Date: May 2021

Following her bestselling memoir, Thirst, here is the next step in Heather "Anish" Anderson's adventurous life journey-one of deep emotion and self-discovery Despite her success setting a self-supported Fastest Known Time record on the Pacific Crest Trail in 2013, Heather "Anish" Anderson still had such deep-seated insecurities that she became convinced her feat had been a fluke. So two years later she set out again, this time hiking through mud, rocks, and mountain blazes to crush her constant self-doubt and seek the true source of her strength and purpose. The 2,189 miles of the Appalachian Trail, from Maine to Georgia, did not make it easy. Anderson struggled with its infamous rain, humidity, insects, and steep grades for fifty-four days. But because she had to fight for every step, she knew when she reached the summit of Springer Mountain, the AT's southern terminus, that she had fully earned the trail. Of greater value, she learned to love herself and her body, and to feel the depth of her power. Examining emotional scars as well as her relationship with her mother, Anderson's deeply internal yet highly physical journey in Mud, Rocks, Blazes is an essential story.

The Bears Ears: A Human History of America's Most Endangered Wilderness Audiobook

The Bears Ears: A Human History of America's Most Endangered Wilderness

Author: David Roberts Narrator: Danny Campbell Release Date: February 2021

A personal and historical exploration of the Bears Ears country and the fight to save a national monument. The Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah, created by President Obama in 2016 and eviscerated by the Trump administration in 2017, contains more archaeological sites than any other region in the United States. It's also a spectacularly beautiful landscape, a mosaic of sandstone canyons and bold mesas and buttes. This wilderness, now threatened by oil and gas drilling, unrestricted grazing, and invasion by Jeep and ATV, is at the center of the greatest environmental battle in America since the damming of the Colorado River to create Lake Powell in the 1950s. In The Bears Ears, acclaimed adventure writer David Roberts takes listeners on a tour of his favorite place on earth as he unfolds the rich and contradictory human history of the 1.35 million acres of the Bears Ears domain. Weaving personal memoir with archival research, Roberts sings the praises of the outback he's explored for the last twenty-five years.

The Solace of Open Spaces Audiobook

The Solace of Open Spaces

Author: Gretel Ehrlich Narrator: Gretel Ehrlich Release Date: January 2021

A collection of transcendent, lyrical essays on life in the American West, the classic companion to Gretel Ehrlich's new book, Unsolaced "Wyoming has found its Whitman." -Annie Dillard Poet and filmmaker Gretel Ehrlich went to Wyoming in 1975 to make the first in a series of documentaries when her partner died. Ehrlich stayed on and found she couldn't leave. The Solace of Open Spaces is a chronicle of her first years on "the planet of Wyoming," a personal journey into a place, a feeling, and a way of life.   Ehrlich captures both the otherworldly beauty and cruelty of the natural forces-the harsh wind, bitter cold, and swiftly changing seasons-in the remote reaches of the American West. She brings depth, tenderness, and humor to her portraits of the peculiar souls who also call it home: hermits and ranchers, rodeo cowboys and schoolteachers, dreamers and realists. Together, these essays form an evocative and vibrant tribute to the life Ehrlich chose and the geography she loves.   Originally written as journal entries addressed to a friend, The Solace of Open Spaces is raw, meditative, electrifying, and uncommonly wise. In prose "as expansive as a Wyoming vista, as charged as a bolt of prairie lightning" (Newsday), Ehrlich explores the magical interplay between our interior lives and the world around us.

Travels with Charley: In Search of America Audiobook

Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Author: John Steinbeck Narrator: Gary Sinise Release Date: January 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. In 1960, John Steinbeck set out in his pick-up truck with his dog Charley to rediscover and chronicle his native USA, from Maine to California. He felt that he might have lost touch with its sights, sounds and the essence of the American people. Moving through the woods and deserts, dirt tracks and highways to large cities and glorious wildernesses, Steinbeck observed - with remarkable honesty, insight and a humorous eye - the gamut of America and the people who inhabited it. His 10,000-mile journey took him through almost forty states, where he saw things that made him proud, angry, sympathetic and elated. A rugged and passionate adventure of self-identity, Steinbeck's vision of the changing world still speaks to us prophetically through the decades. 'Delightful. This is a book to be read slowly for its savor.' The Atlantic © John Steinbeck 1962 (P) Penguin Audio 2021
