Love in the Elephant Tent Book Description :

If you live life without a net, what happens when you fall? Kathleen Cremonesi knew early on she wanted to be different. Determined to avoid following in her mother's footsteps to an ill-fated marriage, Kathleen left Oregon in her early 20s to travel across Europe. On a whim, this former administrative assistant with wanderlust took a job as a dancer in a circus and, working her way up, became an ostrich-riding, shark-taming showgirl. Kathleen bonds with the exotic animals that could strike and kill at any moment, but instead bring her a peace she has never known.

  • ISBN 10 : UOM:39015034889751


In Bed with an Elephant Book Description :

This book is not exclusively a history book, a travel book, a political tract or another slice of autobiography, rather a blend of all four. Ludovic Kennedy writes about the aspects of Scotland that excite him and in particular Scotland's rather stormy relationship with England over the centuries. From the prehistoric settlement of Skara Brae on Orkney, Kennedy moves to a gripping retelling of the story of the '45 rebellion in which Bonnie Prince Charlie emerges as a less than heroic figure. Other highlights include Boswell's and Johnson's Highland jaunt and the adventures of the Stone of Destiny, its capture by Edward I and subsequent recapture from Westminster Abbey by Scottish patriots in 1950. Ludovic Kennedy illuminates both the famous and the l...
