Summary:

You know the type of book. Some insufferable backpacker leaves behind his perfectly good life in the U.S. for a hot, disease-infested hellhole to eat grub worms, catch giardia and build mud huts with the locals - then has the nerve to claim the experience was enlightening! This is not that type of book. This is travel from a whole new perspective - that of the worst traveler in the world, Dan Fazio. He hasn't written another "Eat, Pray, Love" - it's actually more like "Panic, Sweat, Curse." Fazio's idea of international travel involves relaxing in a Mediterranean villa and stuffing himself with various cured meats. Unfortunately, his wife was drawn to the whole grub worms and giardia thing, and she managed to drag him along on a grueling 10-month death march through Europe, Southeast Asia, South America and Mexico. Shattering romantic travel illusions about swimming in waterfalls or picking olives on a pastoral Tuscan ranch, Fazio reads a bit like Chuck Klosterman if he were being carted around the globe in Bill Bryson's backpack - and reveals that the average traveler spends most of his time puking, being puked on, about to die in a fiery bus crash - or all of the above simultaneously.

Summary:

Charlie's the kind of boy that no one notices. Hell, his own mother can't remember his name. So when a mysterious clockwork man tries to kill him in modern day Philadelphia, and they tumble through a hole into 1725 London, Charlie realizes even the laws of time don't take him seriously. Still, this isn't all bad. Who needs school when you can learn about history first hand, like from Ben Franklin himself. And there's this girl... Yvaine... another time traveler. All good. Except for the rules: boys only travel into the past and girls only into the future. And the baggage: Yvaine's got a baby boy and more than her share of ex-boyfriends. Still, even if they screw up history - like accidentally let the founding father be killed - they can just time travel and fix it, right? But the future they return to is nothing like Charlie remembers. To set things right, he and his scrappy new girlfriend will have to race across the centuries, battling murderous machines from the future, jealous lovers, reluctant parents, and time itself.

Summary:

The Reluctant Mariner is the story of a couple's circumnavigation of the world in a 12.2 meter yacht, told from the wife's perspective. Far from simply stopping off in each port, the Hacketts made a point of exploring inland and actually seeing as much as they had time to in every country they visited. The trip took them seven years to complete and they spent many months in several of the destinations they visited. This makes her account more than simply another "sailing around the world" book. Joanna describes their adventures, the people they met, the places they visited -- over 37 countries, many of them not on the usual circumnavigation route -- recounting the good as well as the bad experiences. The Reluctant Mariner also describes what it was like for a middle-aged, female landlubber to leave the comforts of home and family and sail off around the world. Initially a very reluctant sailor, Joanna eventually found herself swept along by her husband's vision and quest for adventure. This is the humorous tale of how she adapted and the experiences she had along the way.

Summary:

Back to the Future meets The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in this original, poignant, race-against-time story about a boy who travels back to 1984 to save his father’s life. My dad died twice. Once when he was thirty-nine and again four years later, when he was twelve. On his twelfth birthday, Al Chaudhury receives a letter from his dead father. It directs him to the bunker of their old house, where Al finds a time machine (an ancient computer and a tin bucket). The letter also outlines a mission: travel back to 1984 and prevent the go-kart accident that will eventually take his father’s life. But as Al soon discovers, whizzing back thirty years requires not only imagination and courage, but also lying to your mom, stealing a moped, and setting your school on fire—oh, and keeping your pet hamster safe. With a literary edge and tons of commerical appeal, this incredible debut has it all: heart, humor, vividly imagined characters, and a pitch-perfect voice. From the Hardcover edition.

Summary:

For Kivrin Engle, preparing an on-site study of one of the deadliest eras in humanity's history was as simple as receiving inoculations against the diseases of the fourteenth century and inventing an alibi for a woman traveling alone. For her instructors in the twenty-first century, it meant painstaking calculations and careful monitoring of the rendezvous location where Kivrin would be received. But a crisis strangely linking past and future strands Kivrin in a bygone age as her fellows try desperately to rescue her. In a time of superstition and fear, Kivrin - barely of age herself - finds she has become an unlikely angel of hope during one of history's darkest hours.

Summary:

Teenager Chloe Templeton and Jasper, a Labrador, have one thing in common. They are both wearing TransFixa devices which allow them to travel in space and time. But why are they wearing them? When Chloe is kidnapped by scientist Theo Rattle, and taken to the new planet Dorian, she tries everything to escape from his clutches and soon befriends Jasper, a three year old retired "sniffer" dog from Heathrow Airport, who has suffered a similar fate. When you're a highly gifted sixteen year old teenager, and already in the third year at university studying astrophysics, it soon becomes evident why Theo needs her help. Theo's assistant, Grutz, is a small monk who does magical things and he's the one to watch. Mistral, a space Fallon, in fact a modern day Pegasus, soon realizes Jasper can help him find the magical ore, Aurel, that is essential to protect his planet, Fallonova. This can only be found on a very dangerous planet in a parallel universe known as Bewaxa, where people have gone but no-one has yet been known to return. Reluctant time traveller Jasper is taken there by Widder and Rani, members of Mistral's family. Will they overcome the first test, on how to escape from the shrinking room, and then the final test with the evil Taupe before they can obtain the Aurel? And, in addition, we have teenagers Mark and Danny, who have lived since the "Big Bang" if not before, and they think that they govern the universe. But do they or is the computer Gulliver really in charge? The boys need the Aurel as Gulliver is made from this and is currently in backup mode as he needs a spare part.

Summary:

Drawing on long-neglected travel writings by British women in India, this study looks at different aspects that women focus on as opposed to men, particularly in their encounters with Indian women in the zenana. Located at the cross-roads of feminist theory and colonial discourse theory, the book examines the power relations inscribed into the traveller's gaze.

Summary:

On his eleventh birthday, schoolboy Magnus Fin found out that he was half selkie -- part human, part seal. Although he looks like a boy and lives on land, he can breathe underwater. When Magnus Fin discovers his initials scratched into the rocks by the shore and finds dead seals washed up on the beach, he knows his selkie family needs his help, and he dives down beneath the waves to find out more. The great seal sickness has struck and his grandmother Miranda is dangerously ill. But Magnus Fin is sure there's another reason for their affliction. He sets out to reveal the truth, with just his moonstone, his last baby tooth and some seaweed from Neptune's garden for luck. Little does he know that his best friend Tarkin, who can't swim, is determined to join him on this perilous mission. This is the exciting sequel to Kelpie Prize-winning Magnus Fin and the Ocean Quest.
