Summary

While it is still possible to travel from Swansea to Shrewsbury along the  quaint and sleepy Heart of Wales line today’s experience is a far cry from  its heyday, when heavy goods and express trains worked their way over  the Welsh hills. In this volume, we explore the southern end of the line,  including the now closed section running along the Swansea shore line  and the branch to Carmarthen, and document its complicated history  around the Swansea and Llanelli areas.

    Believe in Miracles is an amazing book written by a truly amazing man who is sharing his beautiful experience and his commitment to God firsthand with the world.  
    This book is about an intervention from God, a miracle that happened to me. The profound events I experienced in this true story are powerful proof that God is alive and well and one of the reasons why we should all believe in miracles. This is a story to be listened to and savored, a living example of God's amazing grace and his unerring attention to every detail of our lives. It should bring us all to our knees in grateful prayer.

    The first history of the American hiking community and its contributions to the nation’s vast network of trails. In the mid-nineteenth century urban walking clubs emerged in the United States. A little more than a century later, tens of millions of Americans were hiking on trails blazed in every region of the country. This groundbreaking book is the first full account of the unique history of the American hiking community and its rich, nationwide culture.   Delving into unexplored archives, including those of the Appalachian Mountain Club, Sierra Club, Green Mountain Club, and many others, Silas Chamberlin recounts the activities of hikers who over many decades formed clubs, built trails, and advocated for environmental protection. He also discusses the shifting attitudes of the late 1960s and early 1970s when ideas about traditional volunteerism shifted and new hikers came to see trail blazing and maintenance as government responsibilities. Chamberlin explores the implications for hiking groups, future club leaders, and the millions of others who find happiness, inspiration, and better health on America’s trails.  “With rich historical context Silas Chamberlin inspires new appreciation for trailblazers, while sharing the legacy of hiking and its growing importance today, as people find their way to a new relationship with the natural world.”—Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and Vitamin N  “Chamberlin has demonstrated that what at first looks simple—walking on our own two feet—has a complex history of changing cultural associations, social infrastructure, and national significance.”—James Longhurst, University of Wisconsin – La Crosse

    Finally! There is A Mental Toughness Book For Young Athletes!Troy Horne here. Your mental toughness guide! I know exactly how you feel. You probably have a young athlete who struggles with in-game stress and maybe even sports performance anxiety.  This is the only book that I know of with input from an actual young athlete.  I am here to help you parents understand how to help your kiddo navigate this mental toughness journey.  That's why I wrote the Mental Toughness for Young Athletes: Eight Proven 5-Minute Mindset Exercises For Kids And Teens In Competitive Sports (Parent's Guide) In the past I have purchased a lot of books about mental toughness in sports. Most of the books that I read were not written for youth athletes in COMPETITIVE sports. There is a difference. Since there wasn't anything out there for elite athletes we took the long journey of ups and downs for you. IT WAS ROUGH! Luckily along the way we found a winning formula! My son Moses and I launched a podcast together (HOOPCHALK BASKETBALL PODCAST) and on it we interviewed sports mental toughness giants like....- Chauncey Billups- Tywanna Smith- Keiko Yoshimine- Earl Boykins- Jason Richardson and - Kobe Bryant!We studied what they did and said based on our interviews with them and we came up with a mental toughness plan that worked! Does your child perform better in practice than they do in the game or when the "Lights Come On"?Do they seem like they are losing their love for the game?Do you want to help them?If you answered yes to these questions then you are in the right place. I look forward to sharing what we learned with you!
