En route she meets some of the most celebrated figures of the day, including Oscar Wilde, James Whistler, Sarah Bernhardt and even Queen Victoria herself. She then goes on to have a relationship with Prince Edward's nephew, Prince Louis of Battenberg, before embarking on a career as an actress and completing a hugely successful tour of America.

The Appalachian mountain chain once contained the highest and most dramatic mountains on earth. Worn down over time, these mountains still hold some of the most diverse climactic zones and singular geological formations in existence. In "East 40 Degrees: An Interpretive Atlas," Jack Williams examines a succession of beautiful but little-known towns along this cordillera (a term descended from the Latin chorda, meaning "braided rope"), revealing in their layers of history and geography how both their diverse cultural and social circumstances and their geological history were instrumental in forming each town's distinctive character.Referring to the spatial orientation of the Appalachian mountain chain, the "east 40 degrees" of the title runs from Alabama through fifteen states to the coast of Maine. Each town Williams examines sits within the folds of these mountains or beside a river nourished in their moist uplands. Beginning his record with the continental collisions that shaped each town's history more than 300 million years ago, Williams allows us to "see the tenuous web of connections between ourselves and the natural processes that shape this earth." Featuring a wealth of beautiful and significant illustrations and maps, this unique work brings into focus the critical issues of environmental and cultural sustainability confronting us today. Elegant, poetic, and erudite, "East 40 Degrees" will appeal to architects and landscape architects, planners, environmental historians, ecologists, geographers, and anyone interested in the history and origins of our modern landscapes and towns.

Life outside our nation's big cities comprises a remarkably rich aspect of America-culturally, historically, and physically. Because of the way we move through the country, however-on roads built for maximum expediency-most of us are rarely if ever exposed to these small communities, a trend that is moving these towns dangerously far off the maps of commerce and public consciousness. In Easy On, Easy Off, Jack Williams takes to the roads of the interstate highway system to explore America's small towns, bringing back diverse examples of both beautiful and neglected places that illustrate how shifts in modern transportation have influenced urban form. Most of these communities are little known beyond their discrete regions, yet their struggles to prosper are universal. Mill towns, county-seat court squares, villages of the Great Plains, mining towns, and California's forgotten Chinese settlements all share similar fates-overshadowed by interstate off-ramp towns and bypassed by high-speed traffic. Employing more than 150 historic maps and images, unique drawings, and contemporary photographs, Williams convincingly argues that irreversible changes have overtaken the landscapes of small-town America, with each community's economic and social vitality slowly shifting away to other commercial places that attach to our highway interchanges and extrude into strip malls. A tale of success perhaps for the highway system, the more urgent story relayed in Easy On, Easy Off is of the loss of the complex fabric of thousands of small towns that once defined this nation.

Cricket and England - A Cultural and Social History of Cricket in England between the Wars (Paperback): Jack Williams Cricket and England - A Cultural and Social History of Cricket in England between the Wars (Paperback)
Jack Williams
R1,151 Discovery Miles 11 510 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In this book Jack Williams takes a look at cricket as a symbol of England in the 1920s and 1930s. Cricket had a vital role in how the English imagined themselves and their social world. Assumptions attached to the high level of sportsmanship within cricket and the associations of cricket with the Church, respect for tradition, the empire, the public schools and reverence for pastoralism meant that cricket was represented as expressing a distinctively English form of moral worth.

Daniel Vickery, the editor of the Western Flying Post, wrote in A Sketch of the Town of Yeovil (1856) that 'The town is surrounded on the South East by three remarkable hills - Babylonhill, Windmill-hill [Wyndham Hill], and Newton-hill. From these several points there are prospects so rich in fertility, verdure, and beauty, and smiling prosperity - such brightness, a greenness, and a repose - that the spectator is wrapt in admiration of the view thus spread around and beneath him.' The Yeovil of today is very different from the small market town so enthusiastically described by Vickery. The 'hum of distant voices' has been replaced by the drone of motor vehicles and helicopters, and sadly the not infrequent sirens of the emergency services. In Yeovil History Tour, local authors Robin Ansell and Jack Sweet have endeavoured to take you on a fascinating tour through Yeovil, demonstrating how much the town has changed in the past 100 years.

In Yeovil in the Great War 1914-1918 Jack Sweet takes a personal look back on the town during those momentous years from the outbursts of patriotic fervour of August 1914 when many believed that the war would be over by Christmas, to the Armistice of November 1918 and a short time beyond. Jack recalls how Yeovil welcomed Belgian refugees fleeing the German invasion of their home land, how the Baptist Newnam Memorial Hall was converted into a hospital for wounded soldiers, the beginnings of Westland Aircraft and of a test pilot who was later convicted of murder. There is an account of a deserter from the Salonika Front and how young women from many parts of the country helped to harvest the important flax crops. He relates how the town suffered in the influenza pandemic of 1918 and how the Peace Treaty of July 1919 was celebrated. Scarcely a Yeovil family remained untouched by the Great War; over two hundred men would lose their lives and several hundred more would be wounded. Alderman Jabez Matthews, a future Mayor, would lose three sons.Jack Sweet's father, who was severely wounded and suffered from the effects for the rest of his life, would lose a great friend and two cousins, and one of his mother's cousins would return home to die from his wounds. The Great War, or as it was said at the time, "The War to End Wars", changed the world forever but tragically only twenty-one years later the Second World War broke out in September 1939.

A graphic personal account, The Rigger exposes the extreme risks undertaken by specialist operators in order to provide and maintain first-class communications in Northern Ireland. The author, who served alongside the SAS and other covert military organisations, spares no detail in describing the dangers, tensions, dramas and humour of life at the sharp end. Climbing 400-foot masts is not for the faint-hearted at the best of times but to do so in the bandit country of South Armagh or above staunchly IRA enclaves of Belfast and Londonderry is a whole new ball-game and, for some not as lucky as Jack Williams, a fatal one.

Yeovil Through Time is a unique insight into the illustrious history of this part of the country. Reproduced in full colour, this is an exciting examination of Yeovil, the famous streets and the famous faces, and what they meant to the people of Yeovil throughout the 19th and into the 20th Century. Looking beyond the exquisite exterior of these well-kept photos, readers can see the historical context in which they are set. Through the author's factual captions for every picture, and carefully-selected choice of images, the reader can achieve a reliable view of the town's history. Readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and watch the changing face of Yeovil, as the authors guide us through the town's streets. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in Yeovil all their lives, or whether they are just visiting this charming town. It also shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever changing society.
