She has legions of devoted fans. And a radio show. She is a darling of the music scene - always candid, always unplugged. You thought you knew Jann Arden, but there is more - to her readers' delight, in Falling Backwards Jann reveals her childhood, her bond with family, her struggle in the formative years and what keeps her so grounded in the whirlwind entertainment industry. Jann has always been true to herself, except for a minor lapse when she was young. Oh wait, wasn't that all of us? --From the tender and honest to the laugh-out-loud funny, Jann's stories from home and from the road during her pre-celebrity years will take you to unexpected places, including high school parties in farmer's fields, sleepovers under the stars, hard-to-believe summer jobs and the time she was stuck upside down in a brick barbecue. She reminds us of the inestimable value to a child of having teachers who believe in you and wide open spaces to play. But with the good times come the bad (and not just the bad perm). Jann opens up about the darker side of her so-called prairie perfect nuclear family and the first signs that her eldest brother was a uniquely troubled young man. In the days when Jann was experiencing a lot of firsts - first school play, first home perm, first kiss - how lucky for all of us that she stole away to her basement and taught herself her first song on her mother's guitar. --In addition to being an incredible musician and multi-award-winning lyricist, Jann is a natural writer and simply an inspiration. Jann will capture your heart - and keep you in stitches - with her powerful stories about coming of age as an artist and as a human being. Jann brings her wit and that infectious sparkle to everything she does. This book is no exception. "---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

It's this juxtaposition, the poet's gift for poignant love songs paired with a comedian's timing and self-deprecating wit, that has earned Jann a legion of loyal fans on the stage as well as the page. Two years after the success of her first publication if i knew, don’t you think i'd tell you? (Insomniac Press), acclaimed singer / songwriter and now bestselling author Jann Arden is at it again with her second book, i'll tell you one damn thing, and that's all i know. Little escapes the observant and immensely creative Jann whose musings and entertaining ramblings travel beyond goose poop (if you don't remember, buy the first book) to ponder the state of the world, the state of the States, and the state of her hair (she really is a blonde)."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

---------softcover with stiff card covers, about 6.5 x 8.5 inches, a Near Fine copy with a crease to rear flap, 326 pages, colour and b&w photos, from ATLANTIpedia: Robert Argod (1920-2000) was born in la Drôme, France. His adult life was devoted to maritime matters with a particular emphasis on the study of Polynesian shipbuilding and navigational techniques. This led to the posthumous publication in English of a book that controversially suggested that the Polynesians had originated in an ice-free Antarctica. Even more contentious was his belief that this habitable state of the continent was a consequence of polar displacement on a dramatic scale. He claims that such a catastrophic event had occurred more than once within the memory of man and that it is reflected in the mythologies of various peoples. ---His inspiration has come from the work of Charles Hapgood, who did much to draw attention to medieval sea maps that were apparently based on much more ancient charts which showed an Antarctic coast free of ice. His theory is also founded on the concept of accelerated tectonic movements whose consequences are recorded in the ancient literature of many cultures. However in my opinion, Argod does not offer a credible mechanism that could explain such a cataclysmic series of events. He notes the Atlantis story of Plato as just one such record and specifically interprets the 8,000 years since the catastrophe as ‘moon-years’, which would recalibrate the date of the event to around the 13th century BC, coincident with the Egyptian battles with the Sea Peoples.---, ---chapters include: Preface; Introduction; The origin in myth - Polynesia; China; Japan; Iceland; Egypt; Greece; Rome; India; Mesopotamia; The Bible --- The Antarctic - The poles; Cartography; Uncertainties about the length of climatic eras; Continental drifts; The glaciations of the Quaternary ers --- Twilight of the gods - Polynesia; China; iceland; Mexico and Guatemala; The Sahara; Egypt; Greece; Rome; India; Mesopotamia; The Bible; new Chronology ---Conclusion ---Bibliography, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
