Driving over lemons : an optimist in Spain by Chris Stewart( Book )
in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
No sooner had Chris Stewart set eyes on El Valero than he handed over a check.? Now all he had to do was explain to Ana, his wife that they were the proud owners of an isolated sheep farm in the Alpujarra Mountains in Southern Spain.? That was the easy part. Lush with olive, lemon, and almond groves, the farm lacks a few essentials?running water, electricity, an access road.? And then there's the problem of rapacious Pedro Romero, the previous owner who refuses to leave.? A perpetual optimist, whose skill as a sheepshearer provides an ideal entr?e into his new community, Stewart also?possesses an unflappable spirit that, we soon learn, nothing can diminish.? Wholly enchanted by the rugged terrain of the hillside and the people they meet along the way?among them farmers, including the ever-resourceful Domingo, other expatriates and artists?Chris and Ana Stewart build an enviable life, complete with a child and dogs, in a country far from home. From the Trade Paperback edition

Three ways to capsize a boat : an optimist afloat by Chris Stewart( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Chris Stewart had a long and eclectic list of jobs.? From some of the most glamorous careers ? he was original drummer in Genesis - to the more offbeat - a sheep shearer and circus performer - he had done it all?or almost all.? So when he is offered the chance to captain a sailboat in the Greek islands one summer, something he had never done before, he jumps at the chance.? Ever the optimist, Stewart is undaunted by the fact that he?d never actually sailed before!?So begins the hilarious and wild adventures of Three Ways to Capsize a Boat.? From setting the boat on fire not once, but several times in the Aegean Sea to his not-so-grand arrival in Spetses to meet the owners of the boat (who says it isn?t graceful to plow into the docks as a means of coming to a stop?), Stewart quickly catches the sailing bug.? By the end of the summer, as he is facing the dreary prospect of going back to sheep shearing, he jumps at the chance to be part of a crew to follow Viking Leif Eiriksson?s historic journey across the Atlantic Ocean.? Five months on a small sailboat with seven other people in the freezing waters of the Atlantic would sound like punishment to most people, but not Stewart!? He takes it all in stride and always with his unfailing optimism and good spirits.? From coming to terms with the long, cold nights at sea and unchanging cuisine to battling intense seasickness and managing to go to the bathroom during a massive storm (a lot harder than you?d think!), Stewart keeps his good humor?but learns, in the end, that perhaps the best things in life are worth coming ashore for. ?Three Ways to Capsize a Boat is travel writing at its best, crackling with Chris Stewart?s zest for life, irresistible humor, and unerring lack of foresight.? Dry land never looked more welcoming!?“Three Ways to Capsize a Boat” is a charming and lyrical read, awash with the joy of discovery, and Stewart is an immensely likeable narrator?The key to his popularity is his honest and self-effacing determination - as discussed during a mid-Atlantic storm - to live a rewarding life.” ?
