Содержание:
Join Kathleen and Michael Pitt as they leave the comfort and temperate climate of suburban Vancouver to spend an isolated winter north of the Arctic Circle. With neither power nor running water, over 40 kilometres from the nearest community of 75 people, this middle-aged couple learns to embrace temperatures that regularly fall below minus 40 degrees. From their home base in a small, one-room cabin, they seek the challenge of winter camping and the adventure of expeditions across the ice. In January 1999, the Pitts flew by Twin Otter to Colville Lake to pursue Michael's life-long dream of living beyond the reach of roads and concrete. By the time the ice went out of the lakes and rivers in mid-June, their lives had been changed forever. Michael and Kathleen Pitt had been paddling the rivers of Northern Canada for ten years. Yet their experience seemed incomplete. Summer is for visitors. Michael needed to spend a winter in the North, where rivers, lakes and muskeg remain frozen for 7...

How I Defeated Schizophrenia

Norman Campbell

How I Defeated Schizophrenia

I am but mad north-north-west; when the wind is southerly, I know a hawk from a handsaw... Hamlet's words from one of Norman Campbell's favourite plays could well be used to describe his early life. Raised in a strict Calvinist community on the island of Lewis, without a father to give him a name, Norman's feelings of alienation and paranoia grew as he grew, fearing the friendship of others and dreading the word applied to people who were illegitimate. Finally, after his MSc degree at Aberdeen University, the descent into the mire of schizophrenia began. Jobs came and went; Norman signed the Official Secrets Act, and in no time MI5 were 'investigating' him, while the police were on his case regarding Joycean adventures with loose women and other less savoury sexual peccadilloes. Then came stasis, dependency, solitude... and slow recovery. This is a triumphant story, graphically told and full of touching references to literature and painting. It concerns an outsider's fight...

Richard 'Deadeye' Hayes

Outlaw Biker: My Life at Full Throttle

Here is the true story of Richard “Deadeye” Hayes in all its bad-ass, balls-to-the-wall glory. This is a man who stole a machine gun before he was seven and lost his left eye when a good friend shot him in the face. As a member—and the president—of the infamous Los Valientes motorcycle club, he broke more laws and had more fun than any six of the coolest guys you know. One of the last true Outlaw Bikers, Deadeye knows what it means to be a man, take shit from no one, and have tattoos that actually say something. Riding, drug dealing, and sending men to the hospital with his bare hands, Deadeye made himself a legend among bikers—all the while making sure his daughters never got mixed up with guys like him. In his own words, Deadeye tells it all. From earning his colors with an outlaw motorcycle club to his steady diet of drugs, sex, violence, and crime, this is his story: true life, yet larger than life, and full throttle all the way
