Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Vagabonds in France" is a lighthearted book about an unexpected travel adventure to France. Find out how life threw a lemon at us with losing our home, and our attempt to make lemonade. Putting all our furniture in storage, we left everything behind to experience an adventure of a lifetime. With no mortgage or rent to pay, we left with no return date or home to come back to. Exploring for 9 weeks, we traveled from Florida (Tampa and Key West), to Portugal (Funchal, Madeira), to Spain (Malaga, Cartagena, and Barcelona), to the C�te d'Azur in the south of France (Antibes, Nice, Eze, St. Paul de Vence), to Provence (Arles, Avignon), then a month in Paris. Come with my wife and me and see this country's amazing beauty, along with all the humorous cultural differences and "what the hell" moments you'll get a kick out of. Climb mountains, descend into the Paris Metro, dodge pickpockets, endure nasty weather and illness, and witness the flood of the century with us. Experience some wonderful and not-so-wonderful people. Chuckle with me as we live among the French and try to learn their ways and language. Then make it back home to an empty rental home we found online. Readers say they feel like they are right there with us on the journey, and laugh out loud, especially from the "Bathroom Reports". This book, with its 75 photograph illustrations, is available now on Amazon in both paperback (black and white illustrations) and Kindle (color illustrations)!

Book The Tramp in America

  • Author : Tim Cresswell
  • Publisher : Reaktion Books
  • Release : 2004-06-01
  • ISBN : 1861895682
  • Pages : 256 pages

Download or read book The Tramp in America written by Tim Cresswell and published by Reaktion Books. This book was released on 2004-06-01 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book provides the first account of the invention of the tramp as a social type in the United States between the 1870s and the 1930s. Tim Cresswell considers the ways in which the tramp was imagined and described and how, by World War II, it was being reclassified and rendered invisible. He describes the "tramp scare" of the late nineteenth century and explores the assumption that tramps were invariably male and therefore a threat to women. Cresswell also examines tramps as comic figures and looks at the work of prominent American photographers which signaled a sympathetic portrayal of this often-despised group. Perhaps most significantly, The Tramp in America calls into question the common assumption that mobility played a central role in the production of American identity. “This is an effective, and sometimes touching, account of how a social phenomenon was created, classified and reclassified. The quality of the writing, the excellent illustrations and the high production standards give this reasonably-priced hardback a chance of appealing to a general audience . . . an important contribution to American studies, providing new perspectives on the significance of mobility and rootlessness at an important time in the development of the nation. Cresswell successfully illuminates the history of a disadvantaged and marginal group, while providing a lens by which to focus on the thinking and practices of the mainstream culture with which they dealt. As such, this book represents a considerable achievement.”—Cultural Geographies “An important book. Cresswell has made an important contribution to a homelessness literature still lacking a more sophisticated theoretical edge. Clearly written, beautifully illustrated and with a strong argument throughout, the book deserves to be widely read by students and practitioners alike.”—Progress in Human Geography

Book excerpt: Excerpt from Vagabonds of the Sea: The Campaign of a French Cruiser Far removed from the vivid Parisian energy, I felt myself overcome by the enervation of Provence. The whole drama of the week took on the guise of nightmare. I was annoyed that the great convulsion, ordered by Fate, seemed once more delayed by man. I reproached my prudent friends for not taking their part in it. Before them the curtain of an epic drama was already rising, and they were not hailing with enthusiastic acclaim the opening of the spectacle. Their mediocre souls were merely taking up again the thread of their daily preoccupations! About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Book Legends  Monsters  or Serial Murderers

Download or read book Legends Monsters or Serial Murderers written by Dirk C. Gibson and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2012-02-14 with total page 217 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Covering figures ranging from Catherine Monvoisin to Vlad the Impaler, and describing murders committed in ancient aristocracies to those attributed to vampires, witches, and werewolves, this book documents the historic reality of serial murder. The majority of serial murder studies support the consensus that serial murder is essentially an American crime—a flawed assumption, as the United States has existed for less than 250 years. What is far more likely is that the perverse urge to repeatedly and intentionally kill has existed throughout human history, and that a substantial percentage of serial murders throughout ancient times, the middle ages, and the pre-modern era were attributed to imaginative surrogate explanations: dragons, demons, vampires, werewolves, and witches. Legends, Monsters, or Serial Murderers? The Real Story Behind an Ancient Crime dispels the interrelated misconceptions that serial murder is an American crime and a relatively recent phenomenon, making the novel argument that serial murder is a historic reality—an unrecognized fact in ancient times. Noted serial murderers such as the Roman Locuta (The Poisoner); Gilles De Rais of France, a prolific serial killer of children; Andres Bichel of Bavaria; and Chinese aristocratic serial killer T'zu-Hsi are spotlighted. This book provides a unique perspective that integrates supernatural interpretations of serial killing with the history of true crime, reanimating mythic entities of horror stories and presenting them as real criminals.

Book excerpt: Excerpt from Among French Folk: A Book for Vagabonds Spring is surely the most abused of seasons, for to it are attributed, directly or indirectly, countless lapses from commonsense. I am instructed by Helen - a wife whose advice is often worth following - to blame the season for the notes which follow. Personally I would blame the employers who, just at that time, took it into their heads to dispense with my services. Had it not been for them I should have spent the summer respectably employed in filling the columns of a daily newspaper. But no. Helen remains adamant on the Spring theory. She is romantic. Her only sorrow, I believe, is that she is not her namesake of Troy, whose beauty inspired poets and embroiled nations. That would have been so exciting. She found it exciting even to be out of a job. She looked up with dancing eyes. "We'll wander through France," she enthused. "Just a pack on our backs and a Springtime smile for everyone we see." I have yet to meet the person who will stand out against Helen. She listens to no reasoning: did not on this occasion. It was the Spring, she repeated, the season of the Bohemian, the Wanderlust. The Fates favoured her plan. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
