Summary

Lapland in the far north Europe is an adventure of a lifetime for travelers who have an opportunity to tour the region and explore its natural wonders. The landscape varies from undulating fells to vast forests, from flat marshlands to fish-rich rivers, and from snow-capped mountains to spectacular fjords. Lapland: North of the Arctic Circle in Scandinavia is a guidebook for all travelers who want to experience the nature, Sami culture, sceneries and plunge into adventures the region has to offer. 
The book provides all the essential information about Lapland for independent travelers and for tourists who are traveling with a group. It features special sections for road travelers who are new to Nordic seasons and road network. The book provides plenty of tips for the road, including route suggestions and maps. 
The reindeer is the iconic animal of Lapland, but there is plenty of wildlife to discover in the region. Inland fell regions have their own flora and fauna, whereas coastal areas support a totally different wildlife. Numerous natural parks are excellent places for exploring the nature, even though in Lapland, wilderness is practically everywhere. Everyman’s Rights have long traditions in Scandinavian countries. The book explains what the Rights really mean and what they allow for visitors. Common peculiarities of the Sami and Scandinavian cultures are explained as well, including the all-important sauna etiquette. 
Sami people inhabited Lapland long before the current population moved in to the region. Sami history and places where you can explore the culture are highlighted in the book. Special features include information on the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) and tips for road travelers for reaching the continental Europe’s northernmost place, Nordkapp (North Cape). 
The book features hundreds of photographs and maps that help you plan your trip, and tour the places that specifically interest you and your travel companions.

    A raw and tenderly funny look at the human-cat relationship, from one of our most treasured and transgressive writers. 
    “The cat is the beautiful devil.” 
    Felines touched a vulnerable spot in Charles Bukowski’s crusty soul. For the writer, there was something majestic and elemental about these inscrutable creatures he admired, sentient beings whose searing gaze could penetrate deep into our being. Bukowski considered cats to be unique forces of nature, elusive emissaries of beauty and love. 
    On Cats offers Bukowski’s musings on these beloved animals and their toughness and resiliency. He honors them as fighters, hunters, survivors who command awe and respect as they grip tightly onto the world around them: “A cat is only ITSELF, representative of the strong forces of life that won’t let go.” 
    Funny, moving, tough, and caring, On Cats brings together the acclaimed writer’s reflections on these animals he so admired. Bukowski’s cats are fierce and demanding—he captures them stalking their prey; crawling across his typewritten pages; waking him up with claws across the face. But they are also affectionate and giving, sources of inspiration and gentle, insistent care. 
    Poignant yet free of treacle, On Cats is an illuminating portrait of this one-of-a-kind artist and his unique view of the world, witnessed through his relationship with the animals he considered his most profound teachers.

    The seahorse is an amazing fish that is a wonderful aquarium inhabitant despite the fact that they are not as easy to care for as most fish. There are approximately 52 species to delight the aquarist and they can be kept on their own or with other fish and certain invertebrates. 
    This book will introduce you to these fish by looking at the different species, discussing their appearance and biology, typical seahorse behaviour, their feeding requirements, one-of-a-kind reproductive cycle and other things that make these fish unique. 
    It will also tell you what you need to know in order to decide whether or not this is the pet for you and, if it is, how to select your seahorse, what you need to buy before you bring it home, and how to take proper care of it and keep it happy and healthy. 
    The serious hobbyist must know what these fish need with regards to their environment. All the necessary equipment and water and other parameters are examined as the quality of the water and the general environment has a crucial bearing on the health and happiness of seahorses. 
    The seahorse is unfortunately susceptible to a number of different types of bacterial, parasitic and fungal infections and infestations. Anyone who is serious about having a marine tank generally and seahorses specifically needs to know what to look for and how to deal with common ailments. 
    This book also contains helpful information on their reproductive behaviour, gestation, birth and on caring for the fry for those who are interested in breeding or find themselves the proud foster parent of babies that were not expected!
