Summary

Some athletes never stop playing. Some rivalries transcend the gridiron. Some games last forever. The Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys engaged in a fierce rivalry in the 1966 season, culminating in the Packers defeating the Cowboys to win the NFL championship. The next year, they clashed again, and the result is a game that only needs three words to evoke lasting images from every player, every coach, and every fan who witnessed it: “The Ice Bowl.”  The final game of the 1967 season has become one of the most storied contests in NFL history, and sportswriter Mike Shropshire, author of SEASONS IN HELL, brings it all back to life in his panoramic look at the events leading up to the game and how the game influenced both franchises going forward. With photos and insight into the players who battled, as well as those who witnessed, THE ICE BOWL is a must-read for fans of every down.

Each region has an overview, and within it the best sites to visit, with useful information (best times of year to go, activities on offer, facilities, cost), advice on most attractive pitches, contact details and photos. There is a huge variety of sites here, all with something unique to offer, and helpful maps plot each one clearly. 
     
    With a Foreword by One Man and his Campervan's Martin Dorey, this is the essential guidebook for all campers, showing how it really is possible to pitch up in paradise.

    Anglers can be odd types. Lawyers, bricklayers, bankers and double-glazing salespeople during the week, come the weekend they're up to their wrists in worms, waiting, hoping, waiting some more, hoping again, losing hope, more waiting... But why? The Daredevil Book for Anglers has the answer. This is a surreal and funny expose of one of the nation's most popular sports. Sections include: The Art of Waiting (Sitting around on a riverbank for hours and hours, watching a float bobbing about a bit, without going stark raving bonkers); How to Lie ( Caught anything? It's the question every angler dreads) and Yeah, Course Your Son's Desperate to Go Fishing with You (Why forcing the boy to learn to fish makes you a bit of a git). The perfect gift for the angler in your life.

    Lessons in strength, fitness, food, and attitude from the popular world champion skier and beauty icon-Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn.  
    Olympic Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn wants women to stop thinking about "losing weight fast," and instead focus on loving their bodies for what they are and what they can do. Lindsey is a small-town Minnesota girl at heart turned world-champion skier, but that didn't come without hard work. In Strong Is the New Beautiful, Lindsey lays out the never-before-seen training routines and her overall philosophy that have helped her become the best female skier in the world-tailored for women of all shapes and sizes. Lindsey backs up her fitness program with advice on what to eat and how to work out, and kicks readers into high-gear, helping bolster their self-confidence and build a better body image, with the tips and tricks she's learned as a pro. 
    This is Lindsey's regimen, and she encourages people to take from it what will work for them. She bounced back from injury not by doing every single thing a trainer said, but instead, by thinking about the fitness plan that would work for her, and eating the right foods that would make her feel and get healthy. In Strong Is the New Beautiful, she interweaves her training and diet regimen with compelling stories of her life growing up in the heartland, her love of skiing, the challenges she's faced-including injuries, illness, and depression-and her secrets to wellness, fitness, and recovery. 
    Supported by cutting-edge science and the latest studies on health and exercise, filled with routines even those hitting the bunny hill of working out can master, and illustrated with dozens of workout shots and photos from Lindsey's own collection, Strong Is the New Beautiful will inspire and motivate you-whether you're an aspiring athlete, want to get back into shape, or are eager to up your game-to make your body stronger than ever before, inside and out.
