Summary

Forget hurrying. Forget putting your foot down and racing through sweeping bends. Forget the understeer (whatever that is). Forget the blur of a life lived too fast. This is a look at taking life slowly. It's about taking the time to enjoy journeys and places for their own sake. It's about stopping and putting the kettle on. Stopping to take a picture. Stopping to enjoy stopping. 
 
How are you going to do it? In a camper van or a motorhome, of course.  
 
In this book we define the best driving routes around Scotland for camper vans and motorhomes. We show you the coolest places to stay, what to see, what to do and explain why it's special. We meander around the highlands, lowlands and islands of Scotland on the most breathtaking roads, chugging up mountain passes and pootling along the coast. We show you stuff that's fun, often free. We include the best drives for different kinds of drivers; for surfers, wildlife watchers, climbers and walkers. We include the steepest, the bendiest, those with the most interesting bridges or views or obstacles, ferries and tidal causeways. And you don't even have to own a camper van or motorhome – we'll tell you the many places you can rent one to take you on the journey. 
 
All of this is interspersed with beautiful photos, handy maps and quirky travel writing from the king of camper vans and motorhomes, Martin Dorey. So if all you want to do is flick through it on a cold day and plan your next outing, you'll be transported (albeit slowly) to pastures, beaches, mountains and highways that make you want to turn the key and go, go, go!  
 
We'll take you to see Scotland the slow way. The way it should be seen.

    Using violence, guile and corruption, one gangster, the Long Fella, emerged as a true untouchable. A team of local detectives made it their business to take him on until Scotland Yard threw them under the bus and the business of putting on 'the greatest show on earth' won the day.  
     
    Award-winning journalist Michael Gillard took up where they left off to expose the tangled web of chief executives, big banks, politicians and dirty money where innocent lives are destroyed and the guilty flourish. Gillard's efforts culminated in a landmark court case, which finally put a spotlight on the Long Fella and his friends and exposed London's real Olympic legacy.

    "There are various Ways. There is the Way of salvation by the law of Buddha, the Way of Confucius governing the Way of learning, the Way of healing as a doctor, as a poet teaching the Way of Waka, tea, archery, and many arts and skills. Each man practises as he feels inclined. It is said the warrior's is the twofold Way of pen and sword, and he should have a taste for both Ways. Even if a man has no natural ability he can be a warrior by sticking assiduously to both divisions of the Way. Generally speaking, the Way of the warrior is resolute acceptance of death." This new edition has been lavishly illustrated with 12 original illustrations by Lew Hartman.

    This is one of the very few movement education programs designed for toddlers (18-36 months). It includes activities that exercise the whole body and encourage children to enjoy physical activity and fitness. It can instill lifelong healthy habits—something that is especially important when obesity rates are at an all-time high. A bound-in CD includes 23 original songs that add joy and energy to 14 lesson plans. Each lesson plan contains four activities, plus extension ideas.This book was first published by Human Kinetics, followed by Delmar Cengage Learning in 2000 (ISBN 978-0-7668-1602-2), as part of the Moving and Learning series. The other books in the series are also updated by Redleaf Press: Preschoolers and Kindergarteners Moving and Learning (ISBN 978-1-60554-268-3) and Early Elementary Children Moving and Learning (ISBN 978-1-60554-269-0). Updates reflect early learning standards, working with children with special needs, and the book will be sold at a lower, more attractive price for teachers and caregivers. Author Rae Pica, an internationally recognized leader in the early childhood education field, is a proponent for physical education for young children. She served on the National Association for Sport and Physical Education's task force that created national guidelines for early childhood physical activity.
