Description : Early on in his life, Matt craved a return to nature. When he became an adult, he took the plunge to set aside his comfortable urban life and live entirely off the land to learn from the smallest and grandest of all things. In his riveting narrative that brings together epic adventure and spiritual quest, he shows us what extraordinary things the human body is capable of doing when pushed to its limits. Epic Survival, written with Josh Young, co-author of five New York Times best sellers, will relay the captivating stories from Matt's life. He will describe his time learning the secrets of running from the Tarahumara Indians that led to him running the 1,600 mile Pacific Crest Trail in just 58 days and enduring temperature swings of 100 degrees. He will take us with him as he treks into the wilderness to live alone for a half a year, armed with nothing but a loin cloth, a pair of sandals, a stone knife and chia seeds. He'll recount near-death experiences as he hikes alone through the snow drifts at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and tell us about the time he entered a three-day horse race on foot -- and finished third. Above all, Epic Survival is a book about growing closer to the land that nurtures us. No matter how far our modern society takes us from the wilderness, the call remains. Matt's story will be both inspiration and invigoration, teaching even the most urbane among us important and breath-taking lessons.
Description : Breaking Stones is a book about hope, about over-coming all odds, about coming to terms with ones self, and, above all, about the joy of giving back. Alves was born in a rural mountainous region of Portugal. The setting may have been mid-20th century, but the living conditions were Stone Age - no electricity, no running water, no creature comforts of any variety. Breaking Stones follows Alves odyssey from a boyhood spent with his best friend, Burro the donkey, in Portugal to the social alienation he experienced in Germany to the culture shock he felt in Montreal, where his family moved when he was a teen. The adventure continues as Alves tries to find himself as everything from a wannabe rock star to a worm picker, a club-owner to a calche-driver, a landlord to a political activist, a steel-worker to a high-tech consultant, a restaurateur to a philanthropist. In the midst of everything, Alves experiences the euphoria and heartbreak and tragedy of marriage and fatherhood. And ultimately, the kid from the Stone Age emerges intact and wiser in the Internet Age.
