Summary

In 2005 Peter Wright walked the 1,200 km length of the Watershed in 64 days. Walking along the very spine of Scotland he was struck by the magnificence and diversity of the landscapes which his original and little publicised route exposed him to. Nature's Peace celebrates these landscapes as never before through stunning photographs, taking the reader on an imaginary journey from the English border in the south to the Shetland Isles and Unst at the very northern tip of Britain. Wright brings his journey to life with vivid descriptions of the land's history and discussions about its future.

    On the eve of Mao's revolution, brilliant linguist Peter Goullart made himself totally at home in Likiang, capital of the all-but-forgotten Nakhi Kingdom of south west China. He unpicks the complex society, which believed simultaneously in Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Animism and Shamanism. Goullart lets us in on the love affairs and rivalries of his neighbours, his meetings with ancient dowagers and handsome warriors, as well as allowing us to catch the sound of the swift mountain streams, the coarse ribaldry of the markets and the happy laughter of the wine shops.

    The comedian, actor, television host, podcast king, and New York Times bestselling author of President Me, Not Taco Bell Material, and In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks now lays down the law on the plight of the modern parent. 
    Parents, do you often think that if your kids had to grow up the way you did—without iPads, 70-inch flatscreen TVs, American Girl dolls, and wifi in the climate controlled minivan—that they might actually be better off? Do you feel underappreciated or ignored? Do you worry you’re raising a bunch of spoiled softies who will never know how to do anything themselves—because you do everything for them? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need Daddy, Stop Talking. 
    Adam rips parenthood a new one, telling it straight about what adults must do if they don’t want to have to support their kids forever. Using his own crappy childhood as a cautionary tale, and touting the pitfalls of the kind of helicopter parenting so pervasive today, Daddy, Stop Talking is the only parenting book you should ever read. Here, too, is sage advice to Adam’s own kids—and to future parents—on what matters most: dating; drinking and drugs; buying your first house and car; puberty; and what kind of assholes his kids (and yours) should avoid becoming. Even if his own son and daughter pretty much ignore everything he says, you shouldn’t. And you’re welcome. Again.

    "Earl W. Hampton, Jr., is more than a streetcar fan or buff. A streetcar scientist might be more exact." -Louis C. Hennick, coauthor of The Streetcars of New OrleansAn iconic symbol of the Crescent City, the New Orleans streetcar possesses a colorful past spanning more than a century. Covering the time between 1964 and 2008, this pictorial book presents the story of the streetcar, from the year they were replaced by buses on Canal Street through the restoration of the lines following Hurricane Katrina. The streetcar evokes a sense of nostalgia while representing the great legacy of America's transportation history. The St. Charles Avenue line is, in fact, the oldest operating street railway system in the world.While they may appear the same on the outside, each style of streetcar contains unique engineering. Fifteen chapters include technical information on the various streetcar models in a comprehensible format. Other sections include an explanation of the car's connection to the famous Tennessee Williams play and the destruction caused when a devastating storm swept through the city. The author recalls his many experiences of riding on the colorful cars through humorous anecdotes. More than three hundred pictures fill chapters on collectibles, souvenirs, postcards, and memorabilia.ABOUT THE AUTHOR Earl W. Hampton, Jr., continues to enhance his streetcar knowledge though his work with CSX Transportation as an intermodal service representative. In addition to serving as a member of the New Orleans Railway Association, he was once the editor in chief of Open Track, a publication of the New Orleans Railway Museum, Inc. Hampton resides in New Orleans, Louisiana.
