    In his illustrious career as a cartoonist for the New Yorker and other publications, Joseph Farris has created dozens of hilarious cartoons about “the best game in the world at which to be bad.”A.A. Milne had it right, and Farris’s cartoons get to the heart of the game’s wonderful contradiction: over the course of eighteen holes, golf has the capacity to bring great joy and drive you crazy.Farris treats us to the sight of a blissfully happily newlywed with “Just Married” emblazoned on the back of his golf cart; of an archaeologist who discovers a hieroglyph featuring an annoyed-looking pharaoh breaking a golf club over his knee; and a TV-watching husband who rebuffs his naked wife’s amorous advances in no uncertain terms: “Not now, I’m watching Tiger Woods.”It’s been said that real golfers don’t cry.  That may or may not be true.   Joseph Farris’s cartoons are sure to make any golfer laugh.

    Rick Lipsey returned from a vacation with an unusual job offer. After playing a few rounds at Bhutan's Royal Thimphu Golf Club, one of the members asked if he'd consider becoming the kingdom's golf pro. "Sure, I'd love to move to Bhutan," Lipsey flippantly responded. Next thing you know, he, his wife, and their infant daughter are boarding a plane for this remote Himalayan country. With one foot in the ancient world and the other in the twenty-first century, Bhutan is working to successfully meld the old and the new, from subsistence farming and religious festivals to the Internet and World Wrestling Entertainment. In Golfing on the Roof of the World, Rick sets great golf travel writing against the bigger political story of Bhutan's entrance to the modern world. Not only does he teach and play golf in the shadow of the world's tallest peaks, but he also comes to understand the seismic shifts in store for the last Buddhist kingdom where peace and spiritual prosperity have abounded, and the national standard for measuring success is Gross National Happiness.

    Wouldn't it be useful to be able to accurately predict the weather simply by reading the clouds? Well, with this book, you can! 
      
    TV forecasts, online predictions and smartphone apps are all based on the same data – a number-crunched overview of how air pressure and temperature affect the weather across a large geographical area. 
      
    But to get an idea of how the weather will develop for the precise spot where you're standing (or walking, sailing, golfing, fishing, etc) you don't need any equipment or a wifi connection – you just need to look up. 
      
    This book will give you a broad understanding of why the clouds are symptoms of weather patterns, not causes. By reading these signs in the sky and referring to the explanatory colour photographs, you will discover exactly what those signs mean. 
      
    An at-a-glance guide to the clouds for anyone anywhere in the world, on land or at sea, this book will enable you to predict the weather by recognising cloud types, shapes, colour and behaviour. It will be an invaluable companion for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities.

  • Fern Cave - The Discovery Exploration and History of Alabama's Greatest Cave - cover

    Fern Cave - The Discovery...

    Fern Cave likes to keep its secrets. It features over 15 miles of passage, a 437-foot-deep pit, and 18 distinct levels. Fern Cave is a complex three-dimensional maze of deep pits, sinuous interwoven canyons, massive rooms, and stream passages that wind their way through the heart of a mountain in Alabama. Hidden deep within the cave are unique cave formations and archaeological and paleontological mysteries. 
    Cave explorers from Huntsville, Alabama discovered Fern Cave in 1961. Several years later, Huntsville cavers found two more caves near Fern (the Morgue Cave and New Fern Cave), setting off a flurry of exploration to connect all three caves together into one cave system. Cavers did finally connect all three caves, and along the way discovered much more cave than they ever imagined. 
    This audiobook tells the story of the discovery, exploration, and protection of Fern Cave. The story describes how cavers found and mapped this massive cave, how they discovered a huge colony of endangered bats, and why the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service purchased four entrances to the cave. 
    The story continues, describing how cavers worked as volunteers for over 25 years to manage Fern on behalf of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, how cavers worked to create a world-class map of the entire cave system, how a cave conservancy bought one entrance to the cave, and what has changed in the era of the white-nose syndrome bat disease. 
    The story of Fern is a tale of discovery, exploration, adventure, wonder, politics, nature, biology, science, and beauty. 
    This is much more than a history audiobook. It's the story of all of the people who worked so hard to explore and understand Fern Cave, the greatest cave in Alabama and one of the finest caves in the United States.
