A powerful memoir about an epic bike race across one of the most challenging landscapes in the world Rupert Guinness set out on the trip of a lifetime: to race across Australia in the inaugural Indian Pacific Wheel Race. This was no ordinary bike race. Unlike the Tour de France, which Guinness had made his name reporting on for decades, competitors rode completely unassisted from Fremantle in Western Australia to the Opera House in Sydney on the other side of the country - a gruelling distance of over 5000 kilometres that would not only test riders' physical endurance but their psychological resilience. Dubbed 'The Hunger Games on Wheels', there would be no help, just riders and their bikes crossing one of the most beautiful – and often most inhospitable – places on earth. Rupert’s mission was to test his own grit, physical and emotional, as he followed the trail of the pioneering men and women whose historic rides over the last two centuries unveiled a largely unknown interior. But when a terrible tragedy stopped everyone in their tracks, what he discovered was the extraordinary power of the human spirit. Rupert and his fellow competitors were forced to make some of the toughest decisions they had ever faced.

In an era of austerity, recession, and rising nationalism, two friends are torn apart when the Nazi regime infiltrates their friendship and families to devastating effect. Based on the bestselling book, which was written as an anti-fascist call to arms and banned in 1930s Germany for dramatically exposing the threat of Nazism, ADDRESS UNKNOWN is a timely warning of how humanity can fail in the face of extreme ideology.

Tuiga, Mariquita, Cambria, Shamrock, Eleonora, Zaca, Moonbeam, Lulworth, Sunshine, Partridge, Altair, Nan, Marilee, and Bona Fide: these are the majestic sailing yachts of legend presented in this lavishly illustrated volume. Featuring dazzling photographs by the renowned yachtsman and photojournalist Gilles Martin-Raget, this stunning tribute captures the original splendor of these fourteen recently restored boats. Readers feel as though they are traversing the globe with the crew as great action photography depicts the palpable excitement on board. From Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts to the Great Barrier Reef, Martin-Raget's striking scenes range from leisurely cruises past the villages of St. Tropez to close encounters between racing yachts during international regattas. Below deck, his images of the boats' impressive interiors offer a peak at the luxury accommodations. Complimenting the photographs, detailed architectural drawings reveal the structures of these fabled vessels. In this unprecedented documentation of these boats' storied past and recent transformations, author Francois Chevalier recounts each yacht's compelling, and often eccentric, history, from construction and restoration to anecdotal tales of regattas won and lost. In addition to covering racing records and sailing itineraries, there are also tales about such celebrities as Grace Kelly aboard Moonbeam on her honeymoon and Zaca's forays as a marine biology research vessel. Those interested in boat restoration will find the step-by-step details of each yacht's renovation highly informative. A glossary of sailing terms rounds out the coverage. With a foreword and lively captions by ESPN Sailing Analyst Gary Jobson, this book is essential for sailing enthusiasts, boat lovers, or anyone who enjoys viewing an elegant yacht on the open sea. Classic Yachts captures the spirit and beauty of a glorious tradition and offers a breathtaking celebration of an epic pastime.
