The travel experience filled with personal trauma; the pilgrimage through a war-torn place; the journey with those suffering: these represent the darker sides of travel. What is their allure and how are they represented? This volume takes an ethnographic and interdisciplinary approach to explore the writings and texts of dark journeys and travels. In traveling over the dead, amongst the dying, and alongside the suffering, the authors give us a tour of humanity's violence and misery. And yet, from this dark side, there comes great beauty and poignancy in the characterization of plight; creativity in the comic, graphic, and graffiti sketches and comments on life; and the sense of profound and spiritual journeys being undertaken, recorded, and memorialized.

The modern world takes its toll on family life. Alan Nolan has spent the last 20 years apart from his son Ian, who is based in Italy. Deciding that the best way to revive their father / son bond is to undertake an energy-sapping walk through the Italian, Swiss and French Alps on a tough Mont Blanc trek, Alan and Ian set off on their high adrenaline adventure. Like Father, Love Son is Alan’s vivid account of their trip, a unique blend of travel, autobiography and family history peppered with humour. You’ll laugh out loud as they encounter a French Mr. Bean, the American Burt Kwouk, the Australian hitman and at their night spent at the Randy Nurse’s. Convinced that many of us don’t really know our parents because we accept them as they are without asking about their past, Alan decides that Ian needs to know why he was called ‘Killer’ Nolan as a boy and what prompted him to abandon his fledgling boxing career at Teddy Snowball’s gym. Anyone who has read Ancient Feet, Alan’s side-splitting account of his eventful crossing of the North of England with five mates on the Coast to Coast Walk, will already know that Like Father, Love Son will be a barrow load of entertainment, as well as some home truths about our relationships in this modern era.

The key to happiness is being rich, successful, and beautiful...right? Martin Thielen, best-selling author of What's the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian?, insists that this is far from the truth. Happiness, Thielen argues, does not come from external factors like getting a job promotion or finally reaching your goal weight. Rather, happiness is an inside job. In brief, easy-to-read chapters, Thielen offers ten traits of happy and fulfilled people. Using psychological research, personal anecdotes, and Scripture, Thielen begins the path to contentment by showing how life circumstances—including income, health, physical appearance, and marital status—only account for about 10 percent of a person's overall life satisfaction. From there, he offers alternatives to the frequent methods we use to make ourselves happy. Instead of aiming to make more money, Thielen contends that expressing gratitude and cultivating optimism are surer paths to joy. Rather than focusing on constant advancement in our careers, let's practice our ability to forgive, to be generous, and to use trials as growth opportunities. These lessons, and much more, help readers who may be dissatisfied in their lives see that authentic contentment is closer than they ever imagined. The book features a guide for group or individual study, which includes questions for reflection and a challenge for each individual to reflect on during the week.
