Publisher: Open Road Media
International Bestseller: The famed travel writer and author of In Patagonia traverses Australia, exploring Aboriginal culture and song—and humanity’s origins. Long ago, the creators wandered Australia and sang the landscape into being, naming every rock, tree, and watering hole in the great desert. Those songs were passed down to the Aboriginals, and for centuries they have served not only as a shared heritage but as a living map. Sing the right song, and it can guide you across the desert. Lose the words, and you will die. Into this landscape steps Bruce Chatwin, the greatest travel writer of his generation, who comes to Australia to learn these songs. A born wanderer, whose lust for adventure has carried him to the farthest reaches of the globe, Chatwin is entranced by the cultural heritage of the Aboriginals. As he struggles to find the deepest meaning of these ancient, living songs, he is forced to embark on a much more difficult journey—through his own history—to reckon with the nature of language itself. Part travelogue, part memoir, part novel, The Songlines is one of Bruce Chatwin’s final—and most ambitious—works. From the author of the bestselling In Patagonia and On the Black Hill, a sweeping exploration of a landscape, a people, and one man’s history, it is the sort of book that changes the reader forever. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Bruce Chatwin including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

The Point in the Heart
Author: Michael Laitman
Publisher: Laitman Kabbalah Publishers
This is a unique collection of excerpts from a man whose wisdom has earned him devoted students in North America and the world over. Michael Laitman is a scientist, a Kabbalist, and a great thinker who presents ancient wisdom in a compelling style. Written in a unique and metaphorical language, this book speaks to us in a sincere, yet thought-provoking manner while answering the deepest questions all humans have asked. When life gets out of hand, when we need a moment to reflect and to be alone with our thoughts, this book will help us rediscover our inner compass. This book does not profess to teach Kabbalah, but rather gently introduces ideas from the teaching. The Point in the Heart is a window to a new perception. As the author himself testifies to the wisdom of Kabbalah, "It is a science of emotion, a science of pleasure. You are welcome to open and to taste". In Kabbalah, the heart is a symbol of our desire to enjoy. And the point in the heart is that special, intimate moment when we ask ourselves about our purpose for being here. It is that time when we pause and reflect on what lies beyond the incessant "gadget-chase" and ask not if we really need them, but why is it that we want them in the first place. In Laitmans own words, this is "the beginning of the soul, the first step toward revealing love". When you need a light in the dark, this book will be your candle.
