Summary

“My new go-to resource for planning a trip to golf’s homeland . . . Immaculately designed and crammed with beautiful photography.” —Brian Kendall, Canadian Golf Traveller   Every golf course around the globe has one thing in common—they are all unique. No two courses are ever the same. Golf is the only major sport that offers a different experience wherever you go.   The aim of this guide is to offer a golfer all the information they would require to enjoy a great round of golf at the best courses Scotland has to offer. You will find all the essential information you need here—from par score, yardage, and cost of a round to booking procedure and how best to play the course. Universally regarded as the birthplace of the modern game, Scotland boasts some of the finest courses in the world: Royal Troon; Turnberry; and the fabled Old Course, St Andrews, to name just a few. These are the courses all keen golfers would wish to play given the opportunity.   “Very well written and treads a deft line between the scholarly and the light-hearted . . . I closed the book wanting to hop on a train, travel up to the Auld Grey shores and play golf: you can’t pay a travel book a higher compliment than that.” —Will Trinkwon, Golfshake.com   “A book where pure enjoyment leaps from every page.” —For the Love of Books   “There are few golfers in the world who don’t yearn for a Scottish golf trip one day and this book will most definitely whet your appetite and help you plan that special trip.” —UK Golf Guy

    Beginning with their founding as the Dallas Texans of the American Football League in 1960, the Kansas City Chiefs have been one of professional football’s most storied franchises. In Tales from the Kansas City Chiefs Sideline, veteran sportswriter Bob Gretz brings the team’s rich history to life.Gretz begins with the Chiefs’ visionary, 27-year-old owner Lamar Hunt, who founded not only a team but an entire league. After the Texans won the AFL championship in 1962, Hunt moved the team out of his hometown to Kansas City. Two Super Bowl appearances as the representative of the AFL culminated in a Chiefs’ championship in 1970, despite being a double-digit underdog to the Minnesota Vikings. It would be the final game featuring an AFL team, as the Chiefs and nine other teams merged with the NFL. Gretz covers the battles leading up to the merger along with the high and low points in team history?the lean years (1972?88); the ?Carl and Marty” era, when the team made the play-offs in six consecutive seasons; the ?Joe and Marcus” show of 1993; the dismal 2008 season; and the team’s 2013 renewal under Andy Reid and John Dorsey.Tales from the Kansas City Chiefs Sideline is a must-have for any Chiefs fan!Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports?books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.Whether you are a New York Yankees fan or hail from Red Sox nation; whether you are a die-hard Green Bay Packers or Dallas Cowboys fan; whether you root for the Kentucky Wildcats, Louisville Cardinals, UCLA Bruins, or Kansas Jayhawks; whether you route for the Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, or Los Angeles Kings; we have a book for you.

    In the wilderness, one false step can make the difference between a delightful respite and a brush with death. 
    On a beautiful summer afternoon in 1998, Dan Stephens, a twenty-two-year-old canoeist, was leading a trip deep into Ontario's Quetico Provincial Park. He stepped into a gap among cedar trees to look for the next portage—and did not return. More than four hours later, Dan awakened from a fall with a lump on his head and stumbled deeper into the woods, confused. 
    Three years later, Jason Rasmussen, a third-year medical student who loved the forest's solitude, walked alone into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness on a crisp fall day. After a two-day trek into a remote area of the woods, he stepped away from his campsite and made a series of seemingly trivial mistakes that left him separated from his supplies, wet, and lost, as cold darkness fell. 
    Enduring days without food or shelter, these men faced the full harsh force of wilderness, the place that they had sought out for tranquil refuge from city life. Lost in the Wild takes listeners with them as they enter realms of pain, fear, and courage, as they suffer dizzying confusion and unending frustration, and as they overcome seemingly insurmountable hurdles in a race to survive.

    “Offers clear, concise, effective, time-tested, even hallowed, means of going into any survival situation with your ‘A’ game.”—Jim Morris, Special Forces major (retired) and award-winning author of War Story Written by a student and teacher of Asian thought, martial arts, healing, and meditation, The Tao of Survival focuses on real-world, core survival skills that can save your life anytime and anyplace, in any emergency situation. It delves into fundamental concepts that most survival books don’t cover, including how to deal with fear, developing mind/body skills, and fully engaging your senses to be aware of your surroundings. “It is not every day that one comes across a gem. And that is exactly what this book is. For anyone who is into survival—that is, into life and living—then this book is truly a precious commodity to be read by everyone.”—Mykel Hawke, author of Hawke’s Green Beret Survival Manual and Special Forces combat commander “What a great book, not only well written and informative, but actually useful. There are many fine books written on the topic of survival . . . but this is the first I've seen which comprehensively focuses on teaching the essential fundamentals of true survival.”—Dr. Carl Totton, Psy.D., director of The Taoist Institute and martial arts grandmaster  “[Ayres has] always had a seeker’s perspective and has applied it well in his search to know what one needs to learn to be a survivor . . . The Tao of Survival is a masterful synthesis of what it takes to survive . . . while living in a modern world.”—David Wescott, director of Backtracks and managing editor of the Bulletin of Primitive Technology

    Hockey Card Stories reveals what was really going on in your favourite old hockey cards through the eyes of the players depicted on them. Some of the cards are definitely worth a few bucks, some a few cents — but every story told here is priceless. Sportsnet’s Ken Reid presents the cards you loved and the airbrushed monstrosities that made you howl, the cards that have been packed away in boxes forever, and others you can’t believe ever existed. Whether it’s a case of mistaken identity or simply a great old photo, a fantastic 1970s haircut and ’stache, a wicked awesome goalie mask or a future Hall of Famer’s off-season fashion sense, a wide variety of players — from superstars like Bobby Orr, Denis Potvin, and Phil Esposito to the likes of Bill Armstrong who played only one game in the NHL — chime in on one of their most famous cards.
