Brian has a million vague life plans but zero sense of direction. So when he meets Rachel, a self-possessed woman who daydreams of bicycling across the States, he decides to follow her wherever she'll take him. Brian and Rachel soon embark on a ride from northern Wisconsin to Somewhere West, infatuated with the promise of adventure and each other. But as the pair progress from the Northwoods into the bleak western plains, they begin to discover the messy realities of life on the road. Mile by mile, they contend with merciless winds and brutal heat, broken bikes and bodies, each other and themselves—and the looming question of what comes next. Told in a voice "as hilarious as it is wise" (Cheryl Strayed), Going Somewhere is a candid tale of the struggle to move forward.

»Dieses Buch bietet eine andere, ernsthaftere Alternative zum materiellen Erfolg an. Das heißt, es ist eigentlich weniger eine Alternative als viel-mehr eine Ausweitung der Bedeutung von ›Erfolg‹ auf etwas Größeres als das bloße Bemühen, eine gute Stellung zu finden und sich nichts zuschulden kommen zu lassen. Und auch etwas Größeres als bloße Freiheit. Es setzt ein positives Ziel, auf das man hinarbeiten kann, das einen aber nicht einengt. Das, so scheint mir, ist der Hauptgrund für den Erfolg des Buches. Es traf sich, daß die ganze Kultur genau nach dem auf der Suche war, was dieses Buch anzubieten hat.« Robert M. Pirsig

Lev ist das wohlbehütete Kind strenggläubiger Eltern. So unterschiedlich die drei auch sind, eines haben sie gemeinsam: Sie sind auf der Flucht.

Jeder Teil des Körpers lebt als Organspende in einem anderen Organismus weiter. Aber ... wenn jeder Teil von dir am Leben ist, nur eben in jemand anderem ... lebst du dann, oder bist du tot?

Im August 1992 wurde die Leiche von Chris McCandless im Eis von Alaska gefunden. Wer war dieser junge Mann, und was hatte ihn in die gottverlassene Wildnis getrieben? Jon Krakauer hat sein Leben erforscht, seine Reise in den Tod rekonstruiert und ein traurig-schönes Buch geschrieben über die Sehnsucht, die diesen Mann veranlasste, sämtliche Besitztümer und Errungenschaften der Zivilisation hinter sich zu lassen, um tief in die wilde und einsame Schönheit der Natur einzutauchen. – Verfilmt von Sean Penn mit Emile Hirsch.

As a young man, David Winyard rode his bicycle from Oregon to Delaware with Wandering Wheels, an Indiana-based cycling organization. The experience was so fulfilling that he repeated the trip a few years later on a tandem bicycle with his wife Traci. In 2002, after years of preparation, Winyard set out on the same bike to duplicate his youthful experience with his oldest child, David Charles, then fourteen. At age 45, Winyard found the trip to be a much greater challenge than expected. The result, SHORE TO SHORE: A Father-and-Son Journey Across America, describes their adventure, including the surprising lessons learned before, during, and after their trip.

An epic bicycle journey across the American hinterland that explores the challenges of climate change alongside a diverse array of American voices. After a distinguished career in climate science as the Director of the UN Global Climate Observing System in Geneva, David Goodrich returned home to the United States to find a nation and a people in denial. Concerned that the American people are willfully deluded by the misinformation about climate that dominates media and politics, David thought a little straight talk could set things right. As they say in Animal House, he decided that "this calls for a stupid and futile gesture on someone's part, and I'm just the guy to do it." Starting on the beach in Delaware, David rode his bike 4,200 miles to Oregon, talking with the people he met on the ultimate road trip. Along the way he learned a great deal about why climate is a complicated issue for many Americans and even more about the country we all share. Climate change is the central environmental issue of our time. But A Hole in the Wind is also about the people Dave met and the experiences he had along the way, like the toddler's beauty pageant in Delaware, the tornado in Missouri, rust-belt towns and their relationship with fracking, and the mined-out uranium ghost town in Wyoming. As he rides, David will discuss the climate with audiences varying from laboratories to diners to elementary schools. Beautifully simple, direct, and honest, A Hole in the Wind is a fresh, refreshing ride through a difficult and controversial topic, and a rich read that makes you glad to be alive.

Spring 1993. 14 months earlier the USSR had collapsed and with Russia accessible once more Gregory Yeoman and his expedition companions set off on their bicycles to ride from the Baltic to the Pacific. Over 153 days they encountered wild landscapes, wild people, crumbling hotels and Siberia's two cheeses on an extraordinary adventure through a nation finding itself after 70 years of Communism. 'Riding into the Sunrise' is the story of their journey, the Trans-Siberian Cycle Expedition. 8304 miles through steppe, mountains, forest and swamp, spurred on by mental and physical will power, curiosity and a tremendous sense of adventure. As they headed east, the generosity of the people they met in the city tower blocks and village cabins kept their spirits high and after five months of cycling, as they reached Vladivostok, it seemed they had conquered the great Red Bear. Or had they...? 59 black and white photographs and 8 maps help bring the story to life.

Desperate to be free of a terrifying food addiction and driven by a terrible longing to find God, whomever and whatever that meant, Virginia began a ten-year journey that covered more than 10,000 miles by bicycle and countless inner miles of self-discovery and transformation. Her search takes her from a well-ordered, happy married life into divorce, chaos, confusion and despair—and ultimately to the unexpected and profound answer to her quest. This story follows a modern-day seeker as she bicycles her way—alone on back roads and in long distance races—all the way home, where she finds herself as she finds the God she is seeking.

Als geheimnisvolles ”Rotes Buch“ ging es in die Literatur über C. G. Jung ein. Niemand bekam es zu Gesicht, da sein Urheber selbst verfügt hatte, es nicht zu veröffentlichen. Diesem Wunsch wurde entsprochen. Doch fast fünfzig Jahre nach dem Tod Jungs ist die Zeit gekommen, um dieses eindrucksvolle Werk der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich zu machen. Über viele Jahre hielt der große Schweizer Tiefenpsychologe C. G. Jung (1875-1961) seine Träume, Visionen und Fantasien in einem Tagebuch fest: großformatig, kunstvoll und farbenprächtig - C. G. Jungs handgeschriebenes und -gemaltes einzigartiges Vermächtnis. (Quelle: Verlagsinfo).

Armut und Chaos, Resignation und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: In diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA – entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft und damit anfällig für die einfachen Lösungen von Populisten. Früher konnten sich die „Hillbillys“, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter etwa aus Ohio oder Kentucky, erhoffen, kraft ihrer Arbeit zu bescheidenem Wohlstand zu kommen. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien auch die Arbeiterfamilien in eine Abwärtsspirale, aus der die meisten bis heute keinen Ausweg finden. J. D. Vance ist es anhand der Geschichte seiner Familie wie keinem anderen gelungen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.
