No other land has captured man's imagination quite like Tibet. Hidden away behind the highest mountains on earth, and ruled over by a mysterious God-king, it was for centuries a land forbidden to all outsiders. In this remarkable and ultimately tragic narrative, Peter Hopkirk recounts the forcible opening up of this medieval Buddhist kingdom by inquisitive Western travellers during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the race to reach Lhasa, Tibet's sacred capital. This epic, often harrowing tale, which ends with the Chinese invasion of 1950, draws on a colourful cast of gatecrashers from nine different countries. Among them were adventurous young officers on Great Game missions, explorers and mountaineers, mystics and missionaries. All took their lives in their hands, including three intrepid women. Some were never to return.

Originally published as three separate books ~ No Man Has A Right To Own Mountains, Connie Gartside’s Triumph and The Bicycle Frame Builder’s Apprentice ~ this is a thrilling story for children of all ages inspired by the memories of a participant in the Mass Trespass of Kinder Scout in 1932 ~ a defining moment in the struggle for the Freedom to Roam in England and Wales. Set in the early 1990s, the narrative documents the adventures of two teenage girls who continue the ongoing struggle against land thieves, sheep rustlers and an economic situation threatening their generation's prospects for obtaining work. The country was in deep recession at the time when John Major replaced Thatcher as Prime Minister. A thoroughly good read, it intricately combines historical fact with imaginative fiction, and ends with a strange and unexpected twist. Published in support of the Working Class Movement Library in Salford - Manchester's twin city.

Halcyon House has everything: a beautiful location, incredible amenities, and life-threatening danger In the beautiful Northern California coastal town of Monterey, Halcyon House is exactly the kind of place that any kid would want to explore. It’s huge, abandoned, and— rumor has it—haunted. Neely and her little brother, Grub, are determined to get inside. The two siblings climb through an open window and find an old nursery, filled with old toys and, possibly, a ghost. The siblings’ trespassing ends, however, when the mysterious Hutchinson family arrives and reclaims the house. Neely and Grub should be in trouble, but instead Curtis Hutchinson welcomes the siblings in with open arms. But as Neely spends more time at Halcyon House, she realizes that this mansion and its inhabitants are far more dangerous than she could have possibly imagined. This ebook features an extended biography of Zilpha Keatley Snyder.
