The Arizona of the 1970s with its modern cities and nationwide transportation arteries presents a very different image from that traditionally associated with the state's eventful frontier days. Yet not from the metropolitan centres of Phoeniz and Tucson the cowtowns, trading posts and Indian villages still stand among awesome natural scenery which has changed little since the first Spanish explorers ventured here in quest of the fabled golden cities. Eerie ghoste towns still huddle among primeval petrified forests snow-capped mountains and dramatic gorges, and carving its way through Arizona's northern plateau, the Colorado River still winds thorugh the awesome abyss' of the spectacular Grand Canyon, one of the most majestic colourful and awesome natural features of the world. Like Arizona, New Mexico possesses an abundance of dramatic scenery, shaped by volcanic formations and strangely eroded rocks. Against the timeless beauty of its expansive plains and rugged mountains the contemporary state with its space-age search for new energy sources has also preserved much of its traiditional heritage in a daily blend of Indian, Spanish, and Anglo cultures which reflects both yesterday's achievements and today's technology This book with its superb colour photographs has succeeded in capturing that unique blend and in conveying both the modern and the historical faces of these two states in an unforgettable record of some of the world's most dramatic landscapes..

Photographs on plates. 212 pages clean and tight. This book is about one of the wildest and most impressive regions of the Scottish Highlands - the ancient land of Torridon, in Wester Ross. In these pages will be found the essence of Torridon-her colours, painted by the loving hands of the seasons-her legends, bringing a breath of fantasy from that strange otherworld of the intuitive Gael -the simple yet absorbing lives of her kindly people. Here the fisherman may renew acquaintance with the amber burns whose waters dance down off the snows to where the flicker of a fin troubles a sunlit pool. Here the mountaineer may find his hills again-not viewed as strangers from the valleys, but known and loved as friends whose every pinnacle holds a memory of a climb. Here the practical man with his roots in the present may find a new "design for living" in the example of the Highlander's enduring struggle with unconquered Nature. The hills of Torridon were standing millions of years before the first man set foot upon the earth. They may still be standing when the last man leaves. Meantime, this book, superbly illustrated by the photographs of Robert M. Adam, reveals something of the inspiration which awaits the wanderer in this unspoiled corner of the Western Highlands. ., Robert Hale, 1962, Seattle, WAshington: The Mountaineers, 1977. 478 Pages Indexed.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - ONCE AGAIN FOR THUCYDIDES is a collection of seventeen ‘micro-epics’ written by Peter Handke on trips around the world, from the Balkans to the Pyrenees, from Salzburg to the sea of Hokkaido in Japan. In each journal, Handke concentrates on small things he observes, trying to capture their essence, their ‘simple, unadorned validity.’ What results is a work of remarkable precision, in which he uncovers the general appearance of random objects - an ash tree, a shoeshine man, hats in a crowd, a boat loading on a pier - and discovers their inner workings and mystery. Always, his writing hints at the unknown. Describing the snow melting in a garden or falling during a train ride through inland Japan, the glowworms illuminating the plains in Friuli, the tidal waters flowing and receding off the Atlantic coast of Spain, these amazing little ‘epics’ reveal a narrator obsessed with the wonders of detail and marveling, as are we, at the scope and variety of the natural world. PETER HANDKE was born in Griffen, Austria, in 1942. One of the most acclaimed of modern novelists in any language, he is also a dramatist, poet, screenwriter (often in collaboration with Wim Wenders), director, and translator (of Aeschylus and the novels of Walker Percy). Peter Handke (born 6 December 1942) is an Austrian novelist, playwright and political activist. His body of work has been awarded numerous literary prizes. His writings about the Yugoslav Wars and subsequent NATO bombing of Yugoslavia with criticism of the Western position and his speech at the funeral of Slobodan Miloševi? have caused controversy. Handke and his mother (a Carinthian Slovene whose suicide in 1971 is the subject of Handke's A Sorrow Beyond Dreams, a reflection on her life) lived in the Soviet-occupied Pankow district of Berlin from 1944 to 1948 before resettling in Griffen. According to some of his biographers, his stepfather Bruno's alcoholism and the limited cultural life of the small town contributed to Handke's antipathy to habit and restrictiveness. In 1954 Handke was sent to the Catholic Marianum boys' boarding school at Tanzenberg Castle in Sankt Veit an der Glan, Carinthia. Here, he published his first writing in the school newspaper, Fackel. In 1959, he moved to Klagenfurt, where he went to high school, and in 1961, he commenced law studies at the University of Graz. While studying, Handke established himself as a writer, linking up with the Grazer Gruppe (the Graz Authors' Assembly), an association of young writers. The group published the literary digest manuskripte. Its members included Elfriede Jelinek and Barbara Frischmuth. Handke abandoned his studies in 1965, after the German publishing house Suhrkamp Verlag accepted his novel Die Hornissen (The Hornets) for publication. He gained attention after an appearance at a meeting of avant-garde artists belonging to the Gruppe 47 in Princeton, New Jersey, USA, where he presented his play Publikumsbeschimpfung (Offending the Audience). Handke became one of the co-founders of the publishing house Verlag der Autoren in 1969 and participated as a member of the group Grazer Autorenversammlung from 1973 to 1977. Handke has written many scripts for films. He directed Die linkshändige Frau (The Left–Handed Woman), which was released in 1978. Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide's description of the film is that a woman demands that her husband leave and he complies. ‘Time passes. and the audience falls asleep.’ The film was nominated for the Golden Palm Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 1978, and won the Gold Award for German Arthouse Cinema in 1980. Handke also won the 1975 German Film Award in Gold for his screenplay Falsche Bewegung. Since 1975 Handke has been a jury member of the European literary award Petrarca-Preis. After leaving Graz, Handke lived in Düsseldorf, Berlin, Kronberg (all in Germany), in Paris, France, in the USA (1978 to 1979) and in Salzburg, Austria (1979 to 1988). Since 1991, he has lived in Chaville near Paris. In 1996 his travelogue Eine winterliche Reise zu den Flüssen Donau, Save, Morawa und Drina oder Gerechtigkeit für Serbien (A Journey to the Rivers: Justice for Serbia) created considerable controversy, as Handke portrayed Serbia among the victims of the Yugoslav Wars. In the same essay, Handke also attacked Western media for misrepresenting the causes and consequences of the war. Former Yugoslavian president Slobodan Miloševic asked that Handke be summoned as witness for the defence before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, but the writer declined. He did, however, visit the tribunal as a spectator, and later published his observations in Die Tablas von Daimiel (The Tablas of Daimiel). In 1999, Salman Rushdie wrote that Handke ‘has astonished even his most fervent admirers by his current series of impassioned apologias for the genocidal regime of Slobodan Milosevic.’ He noted that Handke received the Order of the Serbian Knight from Milosevic for his propaganda services during a visit to Belgrade, and that his ‘previous idiocies include the suggestion that Sarajevo's Muslims regularly massacred themselves and then blamed the Serbs; and his denial of the genocide carried out by Serbs at Srebrenica.’ In 18 March 2006, in front of more than 20,000 mourners at Miloševic's funeral, Handke gave a speech in Serbian which sparked controversy in the West. In a letter to the French Nouvel Observateur, he offered a translation of his speech: ‘The world, the so-called world, knows everything about Yugoslavia, Serbia. The world, the so-called world, knows everything about Slobodan Miloševic. The so-called world knows the truth. This is why the so-called world is absent today, and not only today, and not only here. I don't know the truth. But I look. I listen. I feel. I remember. This is why I am here today, close to Yugoslavia, close to Serbia, close to Slobodan Miloševic’. In 2006 Handke was nominated for the Heinrich Heine Prize, but the prize money of €50,000 had to be approved by the city council of Düsseldorf. Members of the council's major parties stated they would vote against awarding the prize to Handke, resulting in the prize being withdrawn. In 2014, Handke was awarded the International Ibsen Award, which caused some calls for the jury to resign. The decision was condemned by PEN Norway. Bernt Hagtvet, an expert on totalitarianism, called the award an ‘unprecedented scandal,’ stating that ‘awarding Handke the Ibsen Prize is comparable to awarding the Immanuel Kant Prize to Goebbels.’ A group of demonstrators protested against him when he arrived to receive the prize. On the other hand, Jon Fosse, former recipient of the prize, welcomed the decision, saying that Handke was a worthy recipient and deserved the Nobel Prize in Literature. inventory #22954 ISBN: 0811213889.
