Zurück zur Natur: Selbstversorgung und Nachhaltigkeit liegen voll im Trend. Lebensmittel mit den eigenen Händen herzustellen ist in unserer heutigen digitalisierten Welt eine Frage der Philosophie - und eine wahre Freude! Fleisch und Fisch treffen auf Feuer und Rauch - auf grundlegende, rustikale Zubereitungsarbeiten, die einen ganz eigenen, herrlichen Geschmack erzeugen. Zu Beginn unseres Abenteuers waren wir oft überrascht, mit derart einfachen Methoden so großartige Methoden hervorzubringen. Doch nach und nach wurden wir immer mutiger und haben Hähnchen oder Hecht in der Erdgrube gegart, Lamm und Flammkuchen im selbstgebauten Lehmofen gebacken, Käse und Butter selbst hergestellt, gewurstet, geräuchert, gebraut oder eingelegt - in 12 Projekten sind dabei über 100 köstliche Rezepte entstanden. Leicht verständliche Bauanleitungen zeigen dabei immer, wie wir vorgegangen sind und wie auch Sie eine Erdgrube anlegen, einen Trockenofen einrichten oder einen Lehm- oder Räucherofen bauen können. Für alle Projekte gilt: Es hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht.

„Trust me – it’s paradise“ The escapist motif in Into the Wild, The Beach and Are You Experienced?

The author analyzes three books on escapism and the various ways in which it is represented in them. He focuses on Alex Garland’s backpacker cult novel 'The Beach' and William Sutcliffe’s satire of the gap-year traveler 'Are You Experienced?' as well as Jon Krakauer’s non-fiction book 'Into the Wild'.The first part of the analysis deals with the influence of literary genres like the Bildungsroman and travel literature. Unreliable narration as a narrative strategy is taken into consideration, as well as the colonial subtext of 'The Beach' and 'Are You Experienced?'. In 'Into the Wild' nature writing and road narratives are an integral part of the narrative.The second part deals with cultural aspects such as questions of authenticity that are raised during the narratives, the role of drugs as a means of escape, and also the problematic relationship between travelers and tourists. Finally, the author compares two film adaptations, Danny Boyle’s 'The Beach' (2000) and Sean Penn’s 'Into the Wild' (2007), with their corresponding literary source texts.

Weaving a vibrant tapestry of fact and fiction, Into the Wilderness sweeps us into another time and place...and into the heart of a forbidden, incandescent affair between a spinster Englishwoman and an American frontiersman. Here is an epic of romance and history that will captivate readers from the very first page. When Elizabeth Middleton, twenty-nine years old and unmarried, leaves her Aunt Merriweather's comfortable English estate to join her father and brother in the remote mountain village of Paradise on the edge of the New York wilderness, she does so with a strong will and an unwavering purpose: to teach school. It is December of 1792 when she arrives in a cold climate unlike any she has ever experienced. And she meets a man different from any she has ever encountered--a white man dressed like a Native American, tall and lean and unsettling in his blunt honesty. He is Nathaniel Bonner, also known to the Mohawk people as Between-Two-Lives. Determined to provide schooling for all the children of the village--white, black, and Native American--Elizabeth soon finds herself at odds with local slave owners. Much to her surprise, she clashes with her own father as well. Financially strapped, Judge Middleton has plans for his daughter--betrothal to local doctor Richard Todd. An alliance with Todd could extract her father from ruin but would call into question the ownership of Hidden Wolf, the mountain where Nathaniel, his father, and a small group of Native Americans live and hunt. As Judge Middleton brings pressure to bear against his daughter, she is faced with a choice between compliance and deception, a flight into the forest, and a desire that will bend her hard will to compromise and transformation. Elizabeth's ultimate destiny, here in the heart of the wilderness, lies in the odyssey to come: trials of faith and flesh, and passion born amid Nathaniel's own secrets and divided soul. Interweaving the fate of the remnants of the Mohawk Nation with the destiny of two lovers, Sara Donati's compelling novel creates a complex, profound, passionate portrait of an emerging America.
