John Gimlette,: Wild Coast : Travels on South America's Untamed Edge

Wild Coast : Travels on South America's Untamed Edge


Description

Dolman Travel Book of the Year 2012 Between the Orinoco and the Amazon lies a fabulous forested land, barely explored. Much of Guiana seldom sees sunlight, and new species are often tumbling out of the dark trees. Shunned by the conquistadors, it was left to others to carve into colonies. Guyana, Suriname and Guyane Francaise are what remain of their contest, and the 400 years of struggle that followed. Now, award-winning author John Gimlette sets off along this coast, gathering up its astonishing story. His journey takes him deep into the jungle, from the hideouts of runaway slaves to penal colonies, outlandish forts, remote Amerindian villages, a 'Little Paris' and a space port. He meets rebels, outlaws and sorcerers; follows the trail of a vicious Georgian revolt, and ponders a love-affair that changed the face of slavery. Here too is Jonestown, where, in 1978, over 900 Americans, members of Reverend Jones's cult, committed suicide. The last traces are almost gone now, as the forest closes in. Beautiful, bizarre and occasionally brutal, this is one of the great forgotten corners of the Earth: the Wild Coast.

Deals with computer games. Stressed out and self-medicating with stimulants and cable TV is the norm in today's society. The only solution, aside from retreating to a mountaintop, is to harness the power of your mind and breath through meditation. This sweet tale will warm the hearts of young children as they learn about all the different sorts of love, while the gentle explanations of each provide a valuable opportunity to encourage children to share with others a God-sized love. " Nicknamed 'the rose among the palms', the thousand-year-old city of Marrakesh is characterised by its pink-coloured pise architecture and its deeply rooted tradition for gardens and green spaces. The majority of historic sites are inextricable from their gardens - or indeed are historic green Wild Coast : Travels on South America's Untamed Edge download book spaces: the huge royal orchard pleasure-gardens of the Agdal were described by Monty Don as 'of international cultural importance on a par with Versailles or Villa d'Este'. Scores of traditional riads and hotels like the Mamounia, created by the French in 1923 on the site of an eighteenth-century royal residence, offer splendid gardens to the visitor. Yves Saint Laurent's Majorelle garden is an icon of modern garden design. The first book to be published on this fascinating subject, Gardens of Marrakesh champions the city's relevance today in a world of water scarcity and urban development and explores its green heritage, considering some twenty gardens both from an historic and cultural perspective.
