    Story

    In 1930, two novice paddlers - Eric Sevareid and Walter C. Port - launched a secondhand 18-foot canvas canoe from the Minnesota River at Fort Snelling for an ambitious summer-long journey from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay. Without benefit of radio, motor or good maps, the teenagers made their way over 2,250 miles of rivers, lakes, and difficult portages.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. Highly recommended for people that enjoy outdoor or adventure stories or US history around 1930s.

  • Getting Unstuck: Breaking Your Habitual Patterns and Encountering Naked Reality

    Story

    On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chodron introduces a rare Tibetan teaching she received from her teacher, Dzigar Kontrul Rinpoche, and one that has become critical to her practice. Here, she unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality; a "pre-emotional" feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort, often with harmful habits. With Getting Unstuck, she offers us a first look at "both the itch and the scratch": what Tibetan Buddhists call shenpa.

    Very approachable and down to earth with real world examples. Recording quality is superb. I wasn't sure what to expect from Pema but I was pleasently surprised.
