Writer Rinker Buck looks back more than 30 years to a summer when he and his brother, at ages 15 and 17 respectively, became the youngest duo to fly across America, from New Jersey to California. Having grown up in an aviation family, the two boys bought an old Piper Cub, restored it themselves, and set out on the grand journey. Buck is a great storyteller, and once you get airborne with the boys you find yourself absorbed in a story of adventure and family drama. And Flight of Passage is also an affecting look back to the summer of 1966, when the times seemed much less cynical and adventures much more enjoyable.

Writes of Passage explores the interplay between a system of "othering" which travelers bring to a place, and the "real" geographical difference they discover upon arrival. Exposing the tensions between the imaginary and real, Duncan and Gregory and a team of leading internationa contributors focus primarily upon travelers from the 18th and 19th Centuries to pin down the imaginary within the context of imperial power. The contributors focus on travel to three main regions: Africa, South Asia, and Europe - wit the European examples being drawn from Britain, France and Greece.

It is a close study of four novels by Boris Vian. It aims to show how L'Ecume des jours, L'Automne a Pekin, L'Herbe rouge and L'Arrache-coeur form a unified and coherent tetralogy. By establishing close links between these four texts, it becomes possible to achieve a more comprehensive understanding, not only of the significance of the tetralogy in exposing a complex and multi-layered novelistic strategy at the heart of the vianesque, but of the individual novels as autonomous creations. An examination of the novels reveals that they are not merely joined to one another via a superficial network of textual similarities (that which I refer to as intratextuality), but that this intertwining is emblematic of a common method of narrative construction. Each Vian novel is dependent, for a thorough understanding of the text to be possible, upon the multiple lines of external influence running through it. The sources of this influence (which I refer to as intertextuality) are located in various major texts of twentieth century literature, anglophone as well as francophone. Thus, in each instance the narrative is driven by a complicated interaction of intratextuality and intertextuality."

"Here is adventure through lives and loves of an American whose curiosity attracted him to dangers. His head and hardiness handed him luck and learnings that saved him more than once from death, but rather, delivered him from youth to high age through hazards and adventures into humility and ability to look back in lucid memory, which you here can share. Curiosity marked the life of this American. Attracted not only to learning but also to danger because of curiosity, he lived akin to the proverbial cat. Unlike the cat, he survived. Early in life, his small, coastal town was hit directly by the most destructive hurricane to smash America in the twentieth century. Near to deaths and injuries, he was a witness, not a victim, suffered only consequences of comprehension: satisfactions of seeing, learning, witnessing safely through the melee. Acquaintances were killed, Streets and houses destroyed, indelible memories for an eleven year old. Three years later, and half a world away, he captured, caged, and kept poisonous spiders, rattlesnakes, and a Gila monster, the only poisonous American lizard, many creatures others feared, kept them in high confidence they had lessons worth his learning. Learn here the tensing adventures of this American original, man of curiosity, wanting to learn and know far more than curriculums. He courted danger much of his life, meeting his sometimes near death experiences, but escaped, learned, and advanced to become a key innovator in safe and successful Rocket and Space tests Launchings more than a hundred of them under his personal direction. His unique actions to bring people, their proclivities, and genuine abilities together to perfect technical achievements and bond camaraderie of team talents, led to unlocking safety and success in more than 115 rocket launches to the heights and hazards of space, to high space surveillance, to loft satellites of science and unique performance, some to survey the moon, some to visit planets, As well he led preparation, ground-firing, of the vehicles that carried men to the moon and back. His launches performed missions in American nuclear safety, as well he acted in creation of the Global Positioning System that today dominates location and navigation. Read here the making of a rare mind on collecting, cogitating, comprehending dangers of poison, pestilence, rocket hazards and loneliness of outer space.

Now, in The Plains of Passage, Ayla’s story continues. Ayla and Jondalar set out on horseback across the windswept grasslands of Ice Age Europe. To the hunter-gatherers of their world--who have never seen tame animals--Ayla and Jondalar appear enigmatic and frightening. The mystery surrounding the woman, who speaks with a strange accent and talks to animals with their own sounds, is heightened by her uncanny control of a large, powerful wolf. The tall, yellow-haired man who rides by her side is also held in awe, not only for the magnificent stallion he commands, but also for his skill as a crafter of stone tools, and for the new weapon he devises, the spear-thrower. In the course of their cross-continental odyssey, Ayla and Jondalar encounter both savage enemies and brave friends. Together they learn that the vast and unknown world can be difficult and treacherous, but breathtakingly beautiful and enlightening as well. All the pain and pleasure bring them closer to their ultimate destination, for the orphaned Ayla and the wandering Jondalar must reach that place on earth they can call home. As sweeping and spectacular as the land she creates, Jean M. Auel’s The Plains of Passage is an astonishing novel of discovery, danger, and love, a triumph for one of the world’s most original and popular authors.
