Unlocking Ancient Mysteries, Exploring History’s Most Intriguing Legends, Shambhala & The Kingdom of Kemet

Explore two of the most profound ancient legends, Shambhala and the Kingdom of Kemet (Egypt), deeply intriguing mysteries that have fascinated and inspired millions since the dawn of civilization. In powerful first-hand accounts, explorer M.G. Hawking takes you into the fabled landscapes and unparalleled knowledge of two lost worlds. Ancient history is the hazy vestiges of memory; far more of the secrets underlying the mysteries of the past have been lost than preserved. Even the earliest accounts of history were composed long after certain truths had lapsed from human memory, or were considered secrets too powerful—or too sacred—to be revealed. Yet legends inevitably arose in which fragments of those truths were preserved Stretching in a vast crescent across Asia, the Himalayan Range protects the most isolated areas of Earth’s landmass; ice peaks towering nearly six miles high shroud remote, lushly forested valleys. For thousands of years the mysterious inner region of this Great Range has inspired countless stories and legends of a hidden sanctuary of great masters. If this hidden realm truly exists, who resides there? No historical mystery has inspired the depth of fascination as the enigma of Ancient Egypt. Some ten-thousand years ago, as if abruptly descended upon the sands, a small stone-age culture suddenly rose to create the most magnificent civilization of known history. How was this incredible feat achieved? What was the source of the ancient Egyptians’ sophisticated knowledge and technology? Journey into a legendary realm deep in the Himalayas and far back through the ages to the majestic landscapes of Ancient Egypt to discover knowledge that has long been concealed in legends and sophistry. Entertaining and enlightening, this exploration and anthology is an incomparable read for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of our world and greater personal knowledge and power. 2021 Edition, a Kindle Unlimited Book, e-reader page count 265 (estimated, actual count varies with the reading device used). For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.

The Way of the Shoestring Outdoor Photographer

This is a travel book with much, much more than just travel in it: the outdoor life, geography and history, ethnic conflict and racism, international relations and political power, family hopes and expectations, psychology and mental health; it even has a ghost story – or perhaps two – hidden away within it. What The Way of the Outdoor Photographer doesn’t provide is detailed information on the low-budget photographic hardware that a shoestring outdoor photographer may need for his or her hobby or way of life; this is not a technical treatise but rather a first-hand account of the experiences of one particular low-budget outdoor photographer: me. It also does not offer guidebook-type information on the locations where the story takes place, although like all the accounts in the True Tales of a Traveller series, it does provide sufficiently detailed information on the places concerned for the stories to not only make sense but also to be appreciated, enjoyed, and perhaps even re-read by those readers wishing to deepen their understanding of a particular place. Some of this location-specific information is peculiar to the time the events related took place, but most remains relevant at the time of publication.
