Description
01
After their lives have crossed many times, David meets Bindra in a leper colony and both their lives are transformed. They both survive attempts to kill them by black market medicine peddlers and David founds a charity dedicated to helping the leper outcasts like Bindra. This is their story.
02
This is the remarkable true story of a young man's initiation in the Himalayas. David Manners was trekking in Nepal when he stumbled upon the mountain home of a jhankri, or Nepalese shaman. The jhankri accepted David as his pupil, and so began the next stage of David's extraordinary journey, in which he embarked upon an adventure that was more challenging and, ultimately, life-affirming than anything he could have imagined.

In Limitless Sky, David shares the wisdom and insights he learnt from those transformational days in the Himalayas. These include practical guidance on how to live a full and fearless life, how to find happiness and how to live in ways that nurture both ourselves and others. As David reveals, the life lessons he learned amongst the mountains of the Himalayas could benefit us all today.

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Kidscape, the national charity that works to challenge and prevent bullying, this book offers readers an insight into a collection of innovative projects currently running in schools to promote inclusion, tolerance and kindness.


From a gay role model to a peer mentor, a dance workshop to a gardening club, an autism ambassador to a travelling Gypsy theatre group, the ideas demonstrate how much we have to teach our children about inclusion, how much kindness matters, and how much of a difference schools can make to children who don't always feel they fit. Joining forces with well-known charities and celebrity supporters including Anthony Horowitz, Jamie Oliver, Michael Sheen and more, these accessible, fun and effective projects are tackling issues such as bullying, homophobia, racism, and truancy, are supporting pupils who may feel isolated and excluded from their peer group, and are helping whole schools become happier, more successful settings.


This book will provide inspiration to all educational professionals, parents and volunteers looking for creative and practical ways to help individual children fit in and feel happy in their class.
