Follow Your Heart - A Guitar, A Tattoo, and One Man's Country Music Journey (Paperback): Charlie Worsham Follow Your Heart - A Guitar, A Tattoo, and One Man's Country Music Journey (Paperback)
Charlie Worsham
R371 R296 Discovery Miles 2 960 Save R75 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

How three words became an instruction manual for life... As a youngster seeking guidance and perspective, musician Charlie Worsham received three words of advice from the legendary Marty Stuart that changed his life: "Follow your heart." This sage philosophy became Worsham's instruction manual for living. Committed to permanent ink on the inside of his left forearm, he reads it whenever he's playing guitar-which, as it turns out, is pretty much all the time. In Follow Your Heart, Worsham shares his unforgettable journey around the world, playing music and living adventures that his 10-year-old Mississippi-kid self would never believe possible. He's held a koala bear in Australia, played for soldiers in Iraq, and shared arena stages with Faith Hill, Miranda Lambert, and Taylor Swift in between. He's played crappy bars, national television shows, the Grand Ole Opry, and country music's Mother Church, the Ryman Auditorium. He's met heroes who have become friends and collaborators. He's cursed his luck and shouted hallelujahs. Through it all, Charlie Worsham has followed his heart. Paying homage to a philosophy kindly shared and the pursuit of a life fully lived, Follow Your Heart is the story of a man with a guitar, a tattoo, and a passion for his journey no matter where it takes him.

The Silver Madonna and Other Tales of America's Greatest Lost Treasures (Paperback): W. C Jameson The Silver Madonna and Other Tales of America's Greatest Lost Treasures (Paperback)
W. C Jameson
R327 R304 Discovery Miles 3 040 Save R23 (7%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The twenty-four tales in this book are of the most famous lost treasures in America, from a two-foot statue reportedly made entirely of silver (the Madonna) and a cache of gold, silver, and jewelry that was rumored to also contain the first Bible in America to seventeen tons of gold-its value equal to the treasury of a mid-sized nation-buried somewhere in northwestern New Mexico. What makes these tales even more compelling is that none of these known-to-be-lost treasures have been discovered, although modern detecting technology has made them eminently discoverable.

R297 R279 Discovery Miles 2 790 Save R18 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

One person's trash is another's treasure!

In his newly revised classic, All the Best Rubbish, Ivor Noel Hume traces the fascinating history of collecting from its recorded beginnings and describes the remarkable detective work that goes into establishing the probable facts about uncovered and often underappreciated treasures. Now expanded with hints, tips, and helpful information about antique-hunting online, All the Best Rubbish is the ideal book for the antiquarian or amateur, the historian or professional collector--for anyone who knows that there's no such thing as "just junk."

Noel Hume, former head of the Department of Archaeology for Colonial Williamsburg, has pursued bottles, pottery, clocks, and coins through junk shops, street markets, attics, and cellars on two continents. He's unearthed the most fascinating--and valuable--rubbish from the most unlikely places: the shores of the Thames in London; the lagoons of the Caribbean; the bottom of Martha Washington's well. Hume knows everything that's worth knowing about collecting--why we do it, what we can find, where we can find it, and what we can learn from it.

Accumulated over many years, 'Granny', the enigmatic collector behind this book, presents a selection of quirky post-war goods, advertising and kitchen items.

In Granny's Kitchen Cupboard you'll find a remarkable array of British twentieth-century ephemera. From children's toys, boil dressings and chocolate wrappers to butane fuel and TCP, this selection is an incredible collection of innovative advertising designs, odd curios that have long since been replaced by modern technologies, and recognisable old brands.

After the end of austerity in Britain in the early 1950s, consumerism boomed and these objects portray the societal change that followed. Beautifully arranged throughout, the contents of this book reflect aspects of a long life, most of it lived in a single house in the Home Counties. Nothing was thrown away - everything was recycled and reused in a way that says something about their time, in particular the thrifty mindset instilled by rationing in World War Two.

The collection features old household brands that have evolved into various iterations into the present day, such as Harrods, Johnson's, Vaseline, Vicks, Elastoplast, the AA, Strepsils, W H Smith, Boots, Hoover, Happy Shopper and Lego. But this collection also features some odd items that may evoke nostalgia or even amusement, including fascinating catalogues, vintage pastille tins, an apothecary of unusual medicines, odd household cleaners not to mention rifle cartridges. The book also includes text that divulges the history and use of each object.

Inspired by the Great Exhibition of 1851, the Festival of Britain followed soon after the austerity of the war years. The major events were focused around the twenty-seven-acre bomb site around Waterloo Station, although events happened throughout the UK. The Festival was almost immediately unfashionable amongst commentators. It was viewed with suspicion by political conservatives and quickly dismantled. An establishment orthodoxy quickly emerged that called into question the Festival's objectives. This political ambivalence towards the Festival is confounded by the popularity of the Festival amongst collectors, social historians and anybody interested in post-war British culture and society. This book is the first to present the story of the Festival of Britain, held in 1951, through its souvenirs. These objects were produced to commemorate The Tonic to the Nation. Retrospectively, they testify to the enormous popular appeal of the Festival. Festival of Britain 1951, the most recent addition to
