The Long Way Home by Lorraine Adamson


Original Title: The Long Way Home

This is a true story. It had to be; that was an edict handed down by God—yes, that God, the Supreme Authority, the Creator of heaven and earth and everything else. The God of “Thou shall not bear false witness.” So let me tell you about the family God placed me in. First, Neil Diamond isn’t really my father. No kidding, right? But knowing that Neil Diamond isn’t my father also meant knowing that my mother lived with a significant mental illness. How are you supposed to go back to the beginning and find your way once you’ve realized the map you’ve been following is not only illusory, it isn’t even your own illusion?

The Long Way Home by Lydia Laube


Original Title: The Long Way Home

I sat in the windowless and windscreenless front seat of the truck receiving proposals of marriage: only three, I must admit, but then I was only there three quarters of an hour and wasn't looking my best.' Lydia Laube worked as a nurse in Saudi Arabia and described her tribulations and triumphs in the best-selling traveller's yarn 'Behind the Veil'. Lydia Laube returned to Saudi Arabia, collected her pay, then decided to take 'The Long Way Home' via Egypt, Sudan, Kenya and India. Our Good Little Woman is as eccentric and entertaining as ever ... blithely she trots along, sunshade held aloft, while behind her ships sink, hotels explode, and wars erupt.

Lion A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley


Original Title: Lion A Long Way Home

*** NOW NOMINATED FOR SIX OSCARS, INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, SUPPORTING ACTOR AND SUPPORTING ACTRESS *** Lion is the heartbreaking and inspiring original true story of the lost little boy who found his way home twenty-five years later and is now a major film starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman and Rooney Mara. As a five-year old in India, I got lost on a train. Twenty-five years later, I crossed the world to find my way back home. Five-year-old Saroo lived in a poor village in India, in a one-room hut with his mother and three siblings... until the day he boarded a train alone and got lost. For twenty-five years. This is the story of what happened to Saroo in those twenty-five years. How he ended up on the streets of Calcutta. And survived. How he then ended up in Tasmania, living the life of an upper-middle-class Aussie. And how, at thirty years old, with some dogged determination, a heap of good luck and the power of Google Earth, he found his way back home. Lion is a triumphant true story of survival against all odds and a shining example of the extraordinary feats we can achieve when hope endures. 'Amazing stuff' The New York Post 'So incredible that sometimes it reads like a work of fiction' Winnipeg Free Press (Canada) 'A remarkable story' Sydney Morning Herald Review 'I literally could not put this book down. Saroo's return journey will leave you weeping with joy and the strength of the human spirit' Manly Daily (Australia) 'We urge you to step behind the headlines and have a read of this absorbing account...With clear recollections and good old-fashioned storytelling, Saroo...recalls the fear of being lost and the anguish of separation' Weekly Review (Australia)

Original Title: The Long Way Home

Indigenous peoples have long sought the return of ancestral human remains and associated artifacts from western museums and scientific institutions. Since the late 1970s their efforts have led museum curators and researchers to re-evaluate their practices and policies in respect to the scientific uses of human remains. New partnerships have been established between cultural and scientific institutions and indigenous communities. Human remains and culturally significant objects have been returned to the care of indigenous communities, although the fate of bones and burial artifacts in numerous collections remains unresolved and, in some instances, the subject of controversy. In this book, leading researchers from a wide range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences reflect critically on the historical, cultural, ethical and scientific dimensions of repatriation. Through various case studies they consider the impact of repatriation: what have been the benefits, and in what ways has repatriation given rise to new problems for indigenous people, scientists and museum personnel. It features chapters by indigenous knowledge custodians, who reflect upon recent debates and interaction between indigenous people and researchers in disciplines with direct interests in the continued scientific preservation of human remains.

The Long Way Home by Odell Richardson Jr.


Original Title: The Long Way Home

The Long Way "Home" The Testimony, is a first of its kind from the inner-city streets of Baltimore, Maryland. This narrative, non-fiction story is NOT a glorification of the dispair that plagues many urban districts throughout our country, but it is an informative, intense, detailed, urban centerpiece, that goes against conventional wisdom of what society may believe about the inner-city and many of its occupants. This story bridges a gap many believed could not be. It's a unique approach to the harsh realities of the streets, and to life as a whole. It's a story about change, decisions, and consequences. This is one man's story. It's an urban story about God. This is certainly not a street tale, lacking depth; one without significant meaning or positive goals. This story is about family, trials, perseverance, love, God, life, and its purpose. This read will erase any doubt, and convince all, that anything is possible for anyone. The author assures us all that this is a story told with two main goals in mind; to Glorify God, and to strive for a good future while loving every human being along the way.

The Long Way Home by John Demont


Original Title: The Long Way Home

The province's premier journalist tells the story he was born to write. No journalist has travelled the back roads, hidden vales and fog-soaked coves of Nova Scotia as widely as John DeMont. No writer has spent as much time considering its peculiar warp and weft of humanity, geography and history. The Long Way Home is the summation of DeMont's years of travel, research and thought. It tells the story of what is, from the European view of things, the oldest part of Canada. Before Confederation it was also the richest, but now Nova Scotia is among the poorest. Its defining myths and stories are mostly about loss and sheer determination. Equal parts narrative, memoir and meditation, The Long Way Home chronicles with enthralling clarity a complex and multi-dimensional story: the overwhelming of the first peoples and the arrival of a mélange of pioneers who carved out pockets of the wilderness; the random acts and unexplained mysteries; the shameful achievements and noble failures; the rapture and misery; the twists of destiny and the cold-heartedness of fate. This is the biography of a place that has been hardened by history. A place full of reminders of how great a province it has been and how great—with the right circumstances and a little luck—it could be again.
