Summary

Heavy weather is a lurking spectre that most of us hope and plan to avoid, but not even internet forecasting can make it go away. Anyone intent on crossing oceans must be ready to deal with it if it comes, as well it may. Even well-informed inshore and continental-shelf sailors will inevitably be caught out sooner or later. The object of this slim, quickly absorbed volume is to give everyone, whatever their passage-making aspirations, a sound brief so that whether they find themselves at the wrong end of a force-six blow along the coast, or confronting serious waves far out at sea, they are fully aware of their options for taking it in their stride.Heavy weather is a lurking spectre that most of us hope and plan to avoid, but not even internet forecasting can make it go away.

    A celebration of the character and style of one of the world's most spectacular cities! This vibrant insider's view of the most mature city on earth is the perfect companion for anyone who loves anything Italian. In 1995, after a twenty-year love affair with Italy, Alan Epstein fulfilled his dream to live in Rome. In As the Romans Do, he celebrates the spirit of this stylish, dramatic, ancient city that formed the hub of a far-flung empire and introduced the Mediterranean culture to the rest of the world. He also reveals today's Roman men and women in all their appealing contradictions: their gregarious caffe culture; inborn artistic flair; passionate appreciation of good food; instinctive mistrust of technology; showy sex appeal; ingrained charm and expressiveness; surprisingly unusual attitudes toward marriage and religion; and much, much more.

    The mother cat had been quite upset when she first saw the blue kitten. She had looked fearfully then toward the river. For, like all cats, she had heard that a blue kitten could learn the river's song. Any kitten has a hard enough time to find a home for himself. For every kitten must find a hearth to fit his song. But a kitten who listens to the river and learns the river's song has the hardest time of all. Not only must the kitten who sings the river's song find a hearth to fit that song, but he must teach the keeper of that hearth to sing the same song. The river's song is very old. And mortals who have ears to hear and hearts to sing are fewer than few. (From The Blue Cat of Castle Town)This project was proof listened by Catharine Eastman, ElleyCat, and Park Chohwa.

    From Wolf to Supermutt and...

    When Erika adopted Mila, she naively believed that, like instant soup, she wouldn't have to go through the process of cooking all the ingredients from scratch. She wouldn't have to house train, obedience train or intensely socialise a mature dog. Mila quickly proved how misguided she was! Her favourite pastime was zealously chewing Persian rugs while the living room became her personal toilet. Alternatively, when asked to sit, lie down, or come, she'd throw herself on her back in submission and refuse to move. Thunder and fireworks sent her rushing around in a mindless panic, while the sight of other dogs turned her into a screaming banshee. Does this sound familiar?
    Introducing From Wolf to Supermutt and Everything In Between, a book to guide you and your dog to happiness and harmony. Predominantly written with information based on research studies, the book also includes anecdotes based on Erika's own experience to give it the personal factor. Erika's portrayal of all things canine begins with their evolution and domestication, the fundamental processes that triggered our ongoing relationship with dogs. Additionally, the book banishes a few myths, and explores the significance of nature vs nurture, including the importance of genetics, breeding and socialisation. Understanding how our dogs think and learn, knowing the source of canine behaviour problems, including the impact of detrimental and positive training methods, we can pre-empt many behaviour problems and positively shape our dogs into happy hounds.

    He made his name through his newspaper columns about the countryside and rural life, and achieved the peak of his fame as author of The Gamekeeper at Home and The Amateur Poacher.
    
    His love of nature and wildlife was nurtured by his father who taught him much about the life of the fields and woods.
    
    Jefferies' own remarkable powers of observation infuse his writing on the habits and habitat of his quarry, the techniques of fieldsports and the enjoyment of outdoor pursuits.
    
    These sporting articles are collected here for the first time in a new anthology.
