    A professional tree climber encounters gorillas, snakes, spiders, and birds of prey, as well as answers and perspective, hundreds of feet up, all over the world 
    Every child knows the allure of climbing trees. But how many of us get to make a living at it, spending days observing nature from the canopies of stunning forests all around the world? 
    As a wildlife cameraman for the BBC and National Geographic, James Aldred spends his working life high up in trees, poised to capture key moments in the lives of wild animals and birds. Aldred's climbs take him to the most incredible and majestic trees in existence. In Borneo, home to the tallest tropical rain forest on the planet, just getting a rope up into the 250-foot-tall trees is a challenge. In Venezuela, even body armor isn't guaranteed protection against the razor-sharp talons of a nesting Harpy Eagle. In Australia, the peace of being lulled to sleep in a hammock 25 stories above the ground—after a grueling day of climbing and filming—is broken by a midnight storm that threatens to topple the tree. 
    In this vivid account of memorable trees he has climbed ("Goliath", "Apollo", "Roaring Meg"), Aldred blends incredible stories of his adventures in the branches with a fascination for the majesty of trees to show us the joy of rising—literally—above the daily grind, up into the canopy of the forest.

    Joseph Locke - Civil Engineer...

    Most historians recognize the work of three engineers as being the men who developed the railways from slow, lumbering colliery lines into fast, inter-city routes. Two are very well known: Robert Stephenson and Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The third was Joseph Locke, who should be recognized for having made a contribution just as great as that of the other two.The Locke family had been colliery managers and overseers for many generations and Joseph, once he had completed his very rudimentary education at Barnsley Grammar School at the age of thirteen, seemed set to follow in their footsteps. However, at the age of nineteen he was taken on as an apprentice by an old friend of his father, George Stephenson, and sent to the new locomotive works at Newcastle. His enthusiasm and willingness to learn soon brought promotion, and he became a highly valued assistant engineer on the prestigious Liverpool & Manchester Railway.During his time there he wrote a pamphlet with Robert Stephenson, arguing the case for steam locomotives and had the embarrassing task of having to correct calculations for a tunnel being built under the direct supervision of George Stephenson. After its opening, he moved on to work on the Grand Junction Railway, at the start working alongside Stephenson rather than as his assistant. But before long, they had quarrelled and the directors handed the whole works over to Lockes control. It was the turning point of his life.Locke was to continue as chief engineer on some of the most important lines in Britain, and his reputation grew to the point where he was also in demand for work in mainland Europe, building major routes in France, the Netherlands and Spain. He became a wealthy man, purchasing the manor of Honiton in Devon and sat in Parliament as the Liberal member for that constituency. He received many honors during his lifetime and died while on holiday at Scotland in 1860 at the age of fifty-five.

    A “superbly perceptive” portrait of Gen. Robert E. Lee as he desperately led the Confederate army through the final year of the Civil War (LibraryJournal). By May 1864, Gen. Robert E. Lee had been transformed from a reluctant man who chose to fight for his state over his country into a gray-haired patriarch of the Rebel cause. General Lee was revered by his men, who followed the “Old Man” as if he could hold off defeat by sheer force of will. But as fighting began in earnest once again, Lee could sense a change. The Union army’s new commander, Ulysses S. Grant, was not like his predecessors. He was a fighter, he was in Virginia, and he’s wasn’t going to run. And behind Grant and his massive army were the bedrock pillars of Northern industry and infrastructure. Meanwhile, Lee’s increasingly ragged and starving army had little keeping them going except raw courage, determination—and belief in their leader. Lee had to take action or give up all hope of victory.Lee’s Last Campaign is a triumph of historical research and elegant writing. In this essential analysis of General Lee’s military strategy at a major turning point in history, Clifford Dowdey follows the triumphs and tragedies of the Army of Northern Virginia as it entered the final year of the Civil War.This ebook also includes maps.
