To Travel Without A Map

RRP $18.99

Life for us takes place in a world and whirl full of knowns and unknowns, answers and mysteries, beliefs and doubts, myths and rumors, the mundane and the days of storm. Each of us experiences in our way the same things --we love, we fear, we hope, we dream, we face tragedy and personal defeat, we discover joy and fulfillment. Through it all we find that life is a dance. It is, the author believes, what living is all about-trying to learn the steps to the dance. In this, K.A. Brace's first collection of poetry, To Travel Without a Map, he has tried to make some sense of those steps we must learn and to the dance.


A Traveller In War-time

RRP $27.50

This is not the British Winston Churchill. This Winston Churchill is an American novelist born in St Louis, Missouri in 1871. Both Churchills communicated with each other and because the American Churchill was the first to publish, Sir Winston Churchill published his works under the name Winston S Churchill. The American Churchill was an officer in the U S Navy. He also was a novelist, essayist, and poet. His novels written in a naturalist style often expressed his political views. In 1898 Churchill published his first novel The Celebrity. A Traveller in War-Time was written about the period Churchill spent in England and France in 1917. He speaks of the British people voluntarily reducing their food supply to help the troops and the quality of the British military. Churchill's writing makes his experiences come alive for his readers.
