Summary

"Hand a person a custom made rod," says expert rod maker Dale P. Clemens, "and in almost every instance one of the first things he looks at is the decorative thread work," because a handsome rod is more desirable to own and fish. Clemens guides his readers through the organizational process of threading, illustrates the uses of patterns and replicas, explains how to wrap and weave, and gives his personal tips on how to make every rod "a never ending kaleidoscope of form, shape and color." Offering a sound introduction to the essentials of thread work on round surfaces and more than one hundred rod art patterns suitable for both advanced hobbyists and professionals, Custom Rod Thread Art is the authoritative work on the subject.Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

    On 15 April 2012, it will be 100 years since the Titanic 
    sank. Since that fateful night, stories about the sinking have become 
    legendary - how the band played to 
    the end, how lifeboats were lowered half-empty - but amongst the films, 
    novels and academic arguments, only those who were there can 
    separate truth from fiction. 
     
     
     
    After the sinking, inquiries into the loss of 1,517 lives (out of 
    2,223 aboard) were held in both the UK and US. The proceedings produced 
    1,000 pages of transcripts. Some of the testimonies were inevitably less than impartial, but as a whole the 
    transcripts represent the most thorough and complete account of the 
    sinking, told in the voices of those who were there. 
     
     
     
    For the first time these transcripts have been specially edited and arranged chronologically, so that they tell the story of 
    the Titanic's sinking as a narrative, rather than a list of 
    questions and answers in a courtroom. The 
    witnesses are transformed into characters in a much bigger 
    story, and the events are described from different perspectives of people in 
    every part of the ship, from a stoker in the boiler room escaping his 
    section before the watertight doors sealed behind him, to first class 
    passengers trying to buy their way onto lifeboats. 
     
     
     
    Capturing the disbelief, the chaos and the terror of the disaster, this 
    unique book brings to life the tragedy through the voices of those who 
    survived it.
