What do you do when the voice in your head is telling you to walk out of your job and follow your dreams? What would happen if you listened to the voice in your head? What if you walked out of your job, left your home and a few hours later found yourself jobless and homeless, sitting on a park bench, with a pad and a pen and a desperate hope that the book you are going to write in the park will eventually change your life? That's what Craig Stone, professional nobody did. This is the story he made up to keep his sanity while living alone in Gladstone Park, North London, as he came to terms with the consequences of making bold decisions. He sat under a tree, writing about what it was like to be living under a tree. Craig was determined to write a book that would get him out of the park, a book so original it would be published and change the course of his life. The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness is his story. An imaginative mix of fantasy and his own experiences, this funny and sometimes poignant tale will appeal to those looking for an original and edgy take on autobiographical writing. “One of our favourite guests of the year (and we seriously say that to very few people!)” – The BBC Comedy Café

Nowhere on earth has a river like the Nile played such an important role in preserving the life of an entire nation... Temples Along the Nile transports the reader down the Nile to visit the concentration of the best-preserved temples in the world, with vivid descriptions of the wonderful wall paintings and carvings to be found there – some in near-perfect condition, even after thousands of years. The Ramesseum was certainly a lasting memorial to the great Ramses II, and although there was very little left of the interior apart from the very decorative columns, the temple still provided the visitor with a wealth of interest, with the spirit of Ramses dominating every single corner… Perhaps the most interesting sites explored in the book are the iconic rock temples of Ramses II and his queen, Neferatari, at Abu Simbel. The pharaohs were believed to have been chosen by the gods themselves, and as such, the temples serve as fitting tributes to those who were held in such high regard by the Ancient Egyptian population. Readers will also discover how the temples functioned at the time of the pharaohs, as priests would carry out daily rituals of purification in the presence of the gods and goddesses. Finally, the book concludes with a lesson on how these extraordinary temples were saved from being flooded by the creation of the vast reservoir Lake Nasser. Temples Along the Nile provides a fascinating glimpse into Ancient Egyptian history. It will appeal to both amateur and professional historians, as well as those with an interest in world travel.

The story of Wolfert Webber was said by Louis Stevenson to be one of the finest treasure-seeking stories in the world; and as Stevenson was a very good judge, I am going to tell it to you. Wolfert's ancestor, Cobus Webber, was one of the original settlers who came over from Holland and established themselves on the coast of what is now the State of New York. Like most of his countrymen, Cobus was a great gardener, and devoted himself especially to cabbages, and it was agreed on all sides that none so large or so sweet had ever been eaten by anybody. Webber's house was built after the Dutch pattern, and was large and comfortable. Birds built their nests under the eaves and filled the air with their singing, and a button-wood tree, which was nothing but a sapling when Cobus planted his first cabbage, had become a monster overshadowing half the garden in the days of his descendant Wolfert early in the eighteenth century. The button-wood tree was not the only thing that had grown during those years. The city known at first as 'New Amsterdam,' and later as 'New York,' had grown also, and surrounded the house of the Webbers. But if the family could no longer look from the windows at the beautiful woods and rivers of the countryside, as their forefathers had done, there was no reason to drive a cart about from one village to another to see who wanted cabbages, for now the housewives came to Wolfert to choose their own, which saved a great deal of trouble. Yet, though Wolfert sold all the cabbages he could raise,Êhe did not become rich as fast as he wished, and at length he began to wonder if he was becoming rich at all. Food was dearer than when he was a boy, and other people besides himself had taken to cabbage-growing. His daughter was nearly a woman, and would want a portion if she married. Was there no way by which he could make the money that would be so badly needed by and bye?
