Walter Bonatti - Scalare il mondo. Passioni, imprese ed emozioni del ragazzo che sfidava l'impossibile
Italian | 2019 | 297 pages | ISBN: 8828201622 | EPUB | 4,4 MB

Inseguendo i propri sogni di bambino, Walter Bonatti è diventato un personaggio leggendario, il simbolo stesso dell'avventura. Perché nelle sue sfide si è spinto sempre un po' più in là, ed è andato tanto avanti da riuscire ancora oggi a dirci qualcosa di nuovo. Erano i sogni a guidarlo, e lui ha passato la vita a realizzarli. Non solo i suoi: quelli di tutti. Scalare montagne, calarsi nei vulcani, costruire una zattera, spiare le tigri da una capanna sugli alberi, rincorrere lucertoloni preistorici, viaggiare in canoa sulle tracce dei cercatori d'oro, tirare frecce con gli indigeni, cercare rocce magiche in Amazzonia, piantare una tenda al Polo Sud o su un'isola deserta, tuffarsi da una cascata, guardare negli occhi orsi e leoni. Chi non ha mai fantasticato una di queste avventure? Ecco: lui le ha vissute tutte, e altre ancora, con meraviglia e coraggio..

Ready for Air: A Journey through Premature Motherhood

Ready for Air: A Journey through Premature Motherhood by Kate Hopper
English | September 12th, 2013 | ISBN: 0816689326 | 300 pages | True PDF | 0.87 MB

For Kate Hopper, pregnancy is downright unpleasant. She is tired and heavy and worried, and she wants her wine and caffeine back. But then, at a routine checkup, her doctor frowns at her chart and says, "I'm worried about a couple of things"—and unpleasant suddenly seems like paradise. What follows is a harrowing, poignant, and occasionally hysterical journey through premature motherhood, from the starting point of "leaking a little protein" to the early delivery of her tiny daughter because of severe preeclampsia and the beginning of a new chapter of frightful, lifelong love.

Farian Sabahi - Non legare il cuore
Italian | 2018 | 186 pages | ISBN: 8828200103 | EPUB | 0,5 MB

Il genero iraniano si concede un caffè e la suocera piemontese ne approfitta per prendere la neonata, salire nella cappella al primo piano della clinica e farla battezzare all'insaputa dei genitori. È l'evento che segna la vita di Farian, figlia di uno dei primi matrimoni misti degli anni Sessanta. Dalle sponde del Tanaro alle rive del Mar Caspio, dai monti Elborz alle colline del Monferrato, Farian cammina su un filo teso tra Oriente e Occidente, scoprendosi discendente dal Profeta Maometto secondo la tradizione sciita, sentendosi bollare come «bastarda» dal professore di religione. Sempre straniera, nomade. Sarà la nascita del figlio Atesh a innescare le domande cruciali sulla fede: per lui, e per se stessa. Così, Farian parte per un viaggio nella memoria e ci porta con sé. Sono mille i colori di questo racconto che intercala lessico persiano e dialetto piemontese, tessendo l'ordito e la trama di una vita che unisce Paesi ed epoche all'apparenza inconciliabili..
