Finishing a day.

    From the New York Times–bestselling author, “a captivating guide to finding one’s way in the wild” (The Wall Street Journal). 
     
    Master outdoorsman Tristan Gooley was just about to make camp when he sensed danger—but couldn’t say why. After sheltering elsewhere, Gooley returned to investigate: What had set off his subconscious alarm? 
     
    Suddenly, he understood: All of the tree trunks were slightly bent. The ground had already shifted once and could easily become treacherous in a storm. 
     
    The Nature Instinct shows how we, too, can unlock this intuitive understanding of our surroundings. Learn to sense the forest’s edge from deep in the woods, or whether a wild animal might pose danger—before you even know how you know.

    The true story of a family’s daring four-month Mississippi River journey—a tale of danger, childbirth, and a massive earthquake that “reads like a novel” (Publishers Weekly). In 1811, the steamboat New Orleans was the first to travel the Mississippi River in a four-month journey between Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and New Orleans, Louisiana. The only people brave enough to embark upon the journey were Nicholas Roosevelt; his pregnant wife, Lydia Latrobe; and their young daughter. During the course of the trip, the brilliant but reckless Roosevelt led his family through navigational perils, hostile Indians, and fire aboard. The small, fire-engine-powered steamboat saw not only the birth of Roosevelt and Latrobe’s second child, but also the greatest earthquake ever to strike the eastern United States. That cataclysmic event, described in the book from firsthand accounts, destroyed villages, swallowed islands, and reversed the course of the Mississippi River. Mr. Roosevelt’s Steamboat is an authoritative account of a twenty-five-hundred-mile voyage that significantly contributed to America’s transportation revolution. The dynamic main characters share tender romance and great courage. Their incredible trip down the Mississippi assured the future of steam navigation—and the progress of the great westward movement.  “A vivid, fast-moving story.” —New Orleans Times-Picayune “In a class by itself . . . Surges with excitement.” —Louisiana History “Well-researched, vividly told.” —Waterways Journal “Intriguing romance, [a] taut, suspense-filled story, cataclysmic drama . . . A whale of a book.” —Christian Herald
