Summary

In this extraordinary adventure memoir and tie-in to the PBS documentary, Tim Jarvis, one of the world's leading explorers, describes his modern-day journey to retrace, for the first time ever—and in period clothing and gear—the legendary 1914 expedition of Sir Ernest Shackleton. 
In early 1914, British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and his team sailed for Antarctica, attempting to be the first to reach the South Pole. Instead of glory, Shackleton and his crew found themselves in an epic struggle for survival: a three-year odyssey on the ice and oceans of the Antarctic that endures as one of the world’s most famous tales of adventure, endurance, and leadership ever recorded. 
In the winter of 2013, celebrated explorer Tim Jarvis, a veteran of multiple polar expeditions, set out to recreate Sir Ernest Shackleton’s treacherous voyage over sea and mountain, outfitted solely with authentic equipment—clothing, boots, food, and tools—from Shackleton’s time, a feat that has never been successfully accomplished. 
Shackleton's Epic is the remarkable record of Jarvis and his team’s epic journey. Beautifully designed and illustrated with dozens of photographs from the original voyage and its modern reenactment, it is a visual feast for readers and historians alike, and an essential new chapter in the story that has inspired adventurers across every continent for a century.

    A definitive, full-color book to help bring the style of Nantucket Island into your home.There is something essentially charming about a simple cottage surrounded by a fence covered with roses. More than 1,200 of these houses can be found on Nantucket Island. Nowhere in this country are there more charming and diverse cottages featuring small pocket gardens and window boxes than on Nantucket.To a large extent, the character of the island is reflective of these little early homes. They were originally built by and for island residents at a time when islanders didn’t require, didn’t desire, or couldn’t afford anything larger.Living small, as typified by cottage living, has become the responsible, chic, innovative, and practical wave of the immediate future. Many homeowners are rethinking their needs in regard to space, opting for more quality and less quantity of space. They know that a house is more than square footage, and a small home is one that can be infused with special details and designed to accommodate the lifestyle of its occupants. Neither size nor volume has anything to do with style and comfort.The homes and gardens featured in Nantucket Cottages and Gardens reflect classic design elements that have been embraced in the past and continue to survive in the present. Throughout this book, the cottages of Nantucket will inspire those who are building new, renovating, or decorating a small home. When the quantity of space is pared down, more money can be spent on the things that give a house character, such as built-ins, weathered wood furniture, unique art pieces, and handmade textiles, to name a few.

    Wooden shipping pallets have found an unlikely second life: beautiful, handcrafted home décor without the designer price. The DIY market has long been drawn to refurbishing furniture and interior design on a budget, but easily accessible wood pallets have opened up all-new and inspiring ways to personalize a home in an eco-friendly, low-cost way.Until recently, upcycling required crafters to hunt for goods and furniture at yard sales and online, and many refurbishing books could only offer tips for specific pieces. With wooden pallets, the scope of the project is boundless, and warehouses and stores are happy to give them away for free. What was once a scavenger hunt and test of skill for experienced DIYers can now be an easy weekend project for even the newest of crafters.Wood Pallet Workshop will be a book of inspiration as well as a hardworking instructional guide for an array of projects. With 20 easy-to-follow designs ranging from coffee tables and wine racks to decorative wall art and step-by-step photos, this book will be a go-to instructional guide for DIYers looking for simple and creative ways to decorate their homes.

    Since 2004 in the UK, the Centre of Applied Animal Ethology (COAPE) has been developing EMRA™, a revolutionary and highly successful way of treating behaviour problems in companion animals. EMRA™ is based on emotional assessment of the individual dog or cat rather than the quasi-diagnoses of behaviour problems of old that have often lead to standardised and unnecessarily complicated approaches to treatment. EMRA™ is a practical, easy to use, yet powerful approach that assists the therapist in identifying key emotional aspects of a problem behaviour and the factors reinforcing it, and defines how best to approach precise treatment. It is a kind and effective holistic method that enables the therapist to develop bespoke treatment plans for all common pet behaviour problems, and helps unravel and treat more complex and bizarre challenges far more effectively.  Simply by placing how the pet feels at the heart of the treatment, the EMRA™ approach can take the pet, owner and behaviourist on a journey that is always enlightening and often fun and surprising on the pathway to improved behaviour and relationships.
