Some Things from the Vicar's Bookshelf

For those new to The Coracle, I don't read just about theology and related ministerial subjects.  Hence, these occasional suggestions are eclectic.

Jungle of Stone: The Extraordinary Journey of John L. Stephens and Frederick Catherwood, and the Discovery of the Lost Civilization of the Maya by William Carlsen

A Splendid Savage: The Restless Life of Frederick Russell Burnham by Steve Kemper

Gods, Graves & Scholars: The Story of Archaeology by C.W. Ceram

Investigate or ignore, it's up to the reader.

Also, now in paperback:
Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life by William Finnegan  [It won the Pulitzer for autobiography last year.]
