Mens NORTHWEST TERRITORY Waterproof Hiking Walking Outdoor Ankle Trainers Boots
Mens NORTHWEST TERRITORY Waterproof Hiking Walking Outdoor Ankle Trainers Boots
Offered by Footwear Studio

4.0 out of 5 stars Good sturdy shoe, 31 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nicely made shoe with good ankle support but a size 11 was very tight on my size 10.5 & wide foot. Had to return for a refund.
Perhaps a size 12 would have been OK but was not sure that the width fitting would suit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Portrayal of History, 12 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read about the life of Gertrude Bell in Georgina Howell's " Daughter of the Desert" & being aware that a film about her is due to be released soon I wanted to see this film again as Lawrence & Bell worked together & were in many ways "cast in the same mold". It is an epic film for its day & in most respects is historically accurate & aligns with what I had read in Howell's fine book.


Daughter of the Desert: The Extraordinary Life of Gertrude Bell
Daughter of the Desert: The Extraordinary Life of Gertrude Bell
by Georgina Howell
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly astounding story of Gertrude's life, 12 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a retired & long term resident of North Yorkshire I have, in the last few years, become fascinated by the Bell family history & really wonder why I had not known about it before. This book encompasses both her family history with her paternal grandfather, Isaac Lowthian Bell being the founder of the family's wealth & whose technical & industrial achievements have been likened to that of I K Brunel. Indeed Gertrude's intellect & tenacity displayed throughout her life, which is so engagingly described in this book, is attributed to his genetic legacy. Even in today's context Gertrude's achievements would be considered remarkable, put in the context of the late 19th & early 20th century they are nothing short of astounding. This is a fascinating story & I sincerely hope that the film due to be released later this year [Queen of the Desert starring Nicole Kidman] does full justice to her. Georgina Howell has clearly done a huge amount of research in compiling this book & it is regarded by those I have met to be one of the best accounts of her life. In reading this book the troubled history of Iraq over the last 12 years is put into context & is in many ways made easier to comprehend. Arab nationalism is barely 100 years old so it is perhaps unsurprising that political stability has still to be fully established.

5.0 out of 5 stars A definite improvement, 13 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice quality item with good slide & shower head angle clamping mechanisms & was easy to fit as a replacement of an original riser rail. This is because the slider rail is a free sliding fit in the lower wall attachment boss. I used a different make of shower head and it did not quite fully sit into the tapered holder but this was easily fixed by wrapping some clear tape around the hose end tapered nut

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tool which with a small handle modification is even better, 25 Aug. 2014
Great quality tool & less likely to clog on heavier/stony soils compared to the Wolf tiller/miller that I also have. I also use the long wooden handle with it & sometimes found it a little difficult to keep the head square on to the ground with both hands on the pole so what I did was find a suitable clamp that allowed me to fit a short side handle to the pole about 3 feet from the end which is about 8" long & a bit like the ones found on old fashioned hay scythes. This provides a much more comfortable working position with improved grip, head stability, & work rate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really poor production control, 29 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have twice tried to obtain this book via Amazon & on both occasions the actual book content did NOT match the cover title.
Incredibly this seems to be not uncommon with electronically reproduced books but really highlights sloppy/non-existent quality control by the suppliers

As soon as I saw one of these I decided I had to have one. The integral handle just looks & feels so right & means the jug is more balanced in your hand for smooth accurate pouring.
