17 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Travel to the far reaches of the globe with best-selling author and self-proclaimed hedonist Anthony Bourdain, the Indiana Jones of world cuisine. Join Anthony as he experiences the rich cultures of the people he meets in his travels and samples their many gastronomic delights. Sweden: While sampling popular Swedish delicacies like lingonberry sorbet and lobster with butter and sugar, Anthony hopes to dispel the myth that all Sweden has to offer is tall blondes, Swedish meatballs and ABBA in this "land of contrasts". Puerto Rico: Anthony dines on roasted pig in Caicay, attends a posh party at a hacienda, searches for a chupacabra in the jungle, meets boxing champion Miguel Cotto and travels to Ponce to take in the Festival of the Virgin Mary. Quebec: Anthony visits a duck farm/processing plant to see how foie gras is made, teaches a class at the Academie Culinaire in Montreal and plays hockey with a local university hockey team. U.S./Mexico Border: Anthony visits a bar and grill in southwest Texas, journeys to Piedras Negras to sample authentic Mexican cuisine, takes a boat tour of the Rio Grande with a Texas town mayor and dines in Monterrey. India (Rajasthan): India is a land of color, aroma, delicious cuisine and kind people to share it with. Anthony heads to the more desolate region of Rajasthan where he attends a birthday party and explores life in this magical region. India (Kolkata/Mumbai): Anthony travels to Kolkata and Mumbai (Calcutta and Bombay). On a visit to the largest flower market in Kolkata, he samples a variety of homemade delicacies offered by adjacent street vendors. Korea: Experience the bustling chaos of the Noryangin Fish Market in Seoul City, see a performance by the K Tigers, local taekwando champions, and watch as Anthony tries one of Korea's most loved traditions -- kimchee (fermented cabbage). Indonesia: Visit Jakarta with Anthony and see a demonstration of "silat", an Indonesian martial art, and in a visit to a sidewalk restaurant, learn about the ingredients as each dish is brought to Anthony's table. Ireland: An unfortunate stereotype about this beautiful country is that it has the worst food on the planet. Anthony dines in Belfast, County Cork and Dublin to dispel those myths. Ghana: In this country of rich culture, Anthony samples locally brewed palm wine at the Makola market before stopping into a chop bar (small stall housing a restaurant) for a meaty, hearty stew served with a pounded rice starch to sop up the juices. Namibia: In this country whose name means "desert", Anthony discovers abundant seafood, meets an isolated tribe that subsists mainly on the naro plant, hunts for famous Namibian Kalahari truffles and much more. Lebanon: Anthony and his crew travel to Beirut, Lebanon, and discover a beautiful country with generous people and delicious food. But they also unexpectedly find themselves in the middle of an intense conflict. Pacific Northwest: Anthony visits friend and "Fight Club" author Chuck Palahniuk at a reputedly haunted hotel, samples bacon-and-maple donuts at Voodoo Donuts, checks out the wacky novelty props at The Lippman Co. and is culturally enriched by a visit to a velvet painting museum

Ganges( Visual )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ganges runs through the heart of India. For millions of Hindus it is India's sacred river, but they share its banks and waters with a rich variety of wildlife. In a kaleidoscope of colour and energy, this amazing series reveals how the Ganges has shaped the wildlife, culture and beliefs of India. The journey begins at the source of the river, high in the cold peaks of the Himalayas. It heads down past tigers, otters, peacocks and wild herds of elephants among the riverbanks of the lush foothills before reaching Varanasi, one of the oldest and most sacred cities in the world. Here in the fertile central plains, Sarus cranes and troops of macaques thrive but other animals--such as the unique Gangetic river dolphins and gharial crocodiles--struggle to survive. Reaching the delta, where the Ganges meets the sea, modern cities such as Calcutta join with the ancient swamps of the Sunderbans. This amazingly diverse wetland, rarely filmed before, is home to giant lizards, man-eating crocodiles and forests full of monkeys. Here the tiger is still king, and man is on the menu
