Hyland, Paul
This title is a study in vanity and ambition, madness and resignation. Sir Walter Raleigh was one of the greatest courtiers of his day, Elizabeth's favourite, dashing, brilliant, wily and powerful. This book book takes as its subject his extraordinary last months, during the summer of 1618 when, his last voyage a failure and under great suspicion from James I, he was escorted back to London by Sir Lewis Stucley; the tragi-comic story of this journey, from Plymouth to the scaffold, of Raleigh's grotesque behaviour along the way, of the web of deceit and counter-treachery woven between him and his reviled and much misunderstood betrayer "Judas" Stucley, and of their travelling companion the French physician and double agent Dr Manourie. Around this last journey will be linked the other players in the drama: Bess, Raleigh's handsome, resourceful and distracted wife; Carew, their 13-year-old son; and Samuel King, privateering captain and link with past glories. On countless occasions Raleigh has the opportunity to escape, and refuses it; then, when he at last opts for freedom (in a false beard), he finds himself betrayed again. 242pp.

Greyhound buses and vintage suitcases, whitewashed cottages and wildlife souvenirs, fishing camps and bathing beauties adorn the pages of the book. Here, the authors of the wildly popular 'Minnesota Eats Out' returns to take readers across the state, through the seasons, and into the getaways of decades past. From primitive camping facilities at Minnehaha Falls to mom-and-pop tourist courts like the Kum-Bak Camp in Duluth to spectacular grand lodges like Burntside in Ely, this lavishly illustrated history showcases the North Star State's most memorable holiday haunts. Through an astonishing variety of vintage photographs and artefacts, recipes and family fun, the book offers a one-of-a-kind venture into the best of the good times. It includes 90 vintage recipes.216pp.
