Ernie Davis was an All-American on the gridiron and a man of integrity off the field. A multi-sport high school star in Elmira, New York, Davis went on to Syracuse University, where as a sophomore he led his team to an undefeated season and a national championship in 1959, and earned his nickname: the Elmira Express. Two seasons later, Davis broke the legendary Jim Brown's rushing records and became the first black athlete to be awarded the Heisman Trophy. The number-one pick in the 1962 NFL draft, Davis signed a contract with the Cleveland Browns and appeared to be headed for professional stardom. But Davis never ended up playing in the NFL; he was diagnosed with leukemia during the summer before his rookie season and succumbed to the disease less than a year later. In battling his illness, Davis showed great dignity and courage, inspired the nation, and moved President John F. Kennedy to eulogize him as "an outstanding man of great character who consistently served as an inspiration."

A classic memoir of danger and adventure by a Scottish shark fisherman. In Hebridean Sharker, Tex Geddes describes his exploits during the 1950s as a hunter of basking sharks in the waters of the Minch, between the Inner and Outer Hebrides. Using an adapted whaling harpoon, he and his crew stalked these huge fish—their livers a valuable source of oil—often in perilous conditions. Always a maverick, Geddes had been a boxer and a rumrunner to Newfoundland before World War II. During the war he established a reputation as an expert knife-thrower and bayonet fencer and served in the Special Forces with Gavin Maxwell, celebrated author of Ring of Bright Water. He combined the hazardous pursuit of sharks with crewing the local lifeboat, ring-net fishing, lobstering, deer-stalking, and salmon poaching. He went on to purchase the tiny island of Soay, where he lived with his wife Jeanne, continued to hunt sharks. and became the Laird. This is his story, full of adventures and fantastic descriptions of a seagoing life in the islands.
Running Repairs is a handbook for everyone who runs - from
those training for a one-off charity event, through those who run to
keep fit to experienced club runners who regularly race.
A recent Runner's World magazine survey revealed that over
80 per cent of runners have experienced an injury and that avoiding
injury or recovering from injury is the main worry for nearly every
runner. This will be the first book to specifically address these
concerns. Written by an experienced physiotherapist and recreational
marathon runner, Running Repairs is written in two parts:
Part one - covers a
series of strengthening and flexibility exercises designed to be
incorporated within any running schedule, designed to help prevent
injury in the first place.
Part two - covers the
most common running injuries and how to manage them. A series of
flowcharts helps the reader to diagnose the most likely cause of any
ache and pain and recommends a plan of action to aid recovery - from
rest and ice to referral to a physiotherapist. The book also
covers basic biomechanics so that runners can understand their running
style and identify the specific injuries that are associated with that
style, plus nutritional advice for recovering from injury. The book
will be an essential reference for all runners - allowing them to treat
any injuries immediately and in many cases saving considerable amounts
of money on unnecessary physiotherapy appointments (the author
estimates that about 50% of injuries that runners visit her practice
with could be treated effectively by the patient and that the vast
majority of injuries could be avoided with appropriate exercises being
incorporated as part of training).
As a Tibetan lama and leader of Shambhala (an international community of 165 meditation centers), Sakyong Mipham has found physical activity to be essential for spiritual well-being. He's been trained in horsemanship and martial arts but has a special love for running. Here he incorporates his spiritual practice with running, presenting basic meditation instruction and fundamental principles he has developed. Even though both activities can be complicated, the lessons here are simple and designed to show how the melding of internal practice with physical movement can be used by anyone-regardless of age, spiritual background, or ability-to benefit body and mind.
