Summary

The New River is one of the most changeable and fickle rivers on the East Coast and also one of the most beautiful and rewarding.
 
It attracts anglers, canoeists, kayakers, rafters, bird watchers, rock climbers, and those who simply enjoy the great outdoors.
 
The New River Guide provides an indispensable overview of this untamed and scenic waterway as it winds through three states, including the bucolic South Fork in North Carolina, the ridges of Virginia, and the gorges of West Virginia.
 
Both casual and hardcore anglers will learn of the best places to fish for smallmouth bass. Canoeists will find the most enticing sections to paddle, whether they prefer placid stretches or white water. Rafters and kayakers headed for Class IV rapids in the New River Gorge will find The New River Guide a must-read.
 
This new edition for 2015 includes updated and expanded information on favorite float trips, fishing spots, access points, bass lines and lures, and river guides and other resources.

    A critically-acclaimed Japanese poet and translator reveals his life story in captivating verse.   Acclaimed Japanese poet Yorifumi Yaguchi has turned his literary focus to his own experiences as a child growing up on the island of Honshu in the late 1930s and ’40s. When life became incomprehensible, Yaguchi put those experiences into poems. His audience grew beyond Japan—and included Robert Bly, Denise Levertov, and William Stafford, who soon became his friends.   Recognized in Japan as a major poet and also as an outspoken advocate for peace, Yaguchi’s Wing-Beaten Air uses his extraordinary voice to tell his life story in prose and poetry.

The guide includes detailed color maps of the trails, directions on how to get to them and where to park, and recommendations for the most scenic routes.

    With savage humor, Death Confetti features performance artist Jennifer Robin's autobiographical sketches of Portland, Oregon, from the grunge-era obscurity of the '90s to its current media-darling status. 
    As an only child raised by reclusive grandparents in upstate New York, Jennifer recalls that she felt "anemic for the real." At seventeen she broke loose and made her way to the west coast. 
    "Civilization is a nightmare-illusion," Jennifer writes, "a three-dimensional spreadsheet perpetuated by machines that hypnotize meat." 
    In a city that's stranger than fiction, grocery-store checkers and meth-heads loom as lost gods. We're introduced to the lady tweaker "Chew Toy," who wears moon boots and sings hair metal songs all night as she collects recyclable bottles. Jennifer visits a bar where executives simulate doggie-style sex acts on the dance floor. Then there's all the tales of late-night life on the city's buses and light rail. 
    Jennifer reflects on her early terror in Catholic school and phone calls with her far-out mother, who disclosed that her gynecologist was a murderer. In the all-too-true pages of Death Confetti, Robin remembers her life among noise musicians, junkies, and her escape from a boyfriend who insisted on reviving the lives of hundreds of deceased fruit flies. 
    Death Confetti jolts the senses, and lingers like a mosquito bite to the Portland of everybody's soul.
