Summary

Straddling the border between England and Wales, the railway linking  Shrewsbury to Chester has been serving the communities along its length  since 1848, as well as being, for over a century, a key component of the Great Western Railway’s main line from the Mersey to London. It still  remains busy with passenger trains and some freight, so it is not lost in  the conventional sense, however, this pictorial journey along what remains  an attractive and scenic line focuses on its heyday in the age of steam  hauled-trains. Whilst much of the infrastructure of the steam age has been swept away, the line is still busy and remains an important transport link.

    Editorial reviews: 
    'A highly anticipated Appalachian Trail memoir, and well worth the wait.' 
    Daniel Neilson (The Great Outdoors Magazine) 
    'With thru-hiking gaining in popularity, many look to the Appalachian Trail to test their trail legs, and discover why it holds the reputation it does. 
    The wilds of this planet are serene, peaceful and offer the chance to break away from a normal existence. Keith’s wonderful perspective of the trail reflects this freedom.' 
    Jennifer Pharr Davis (Author and previous record holder for the fastest ever thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail). 
    'An entertaining and inspiring account of one of the world’s longest hikes and the people who walk it. Keith is a perfect walking companion for the ups and downs of the trail – his easy and understated style kept me turning the pages. 
    Essential reading for those contemplating their own big adventure.' 
    David Lintern (Outdoor Enthusiast Magazine) 
    'Long distance backpacking trips can be monotonous, and it’s often the same story for most books about them. Balancing on Blue is something completely different and once again, Keith invites you to the world that he calls home. 
    Be prepared for great story telling, unique and interesting characters, wit and insight.' 
    Andrew Skurka (Long distance hiker, adventurer and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year 2007).

    The first and finest handbook for travelers of the Old American West. “To dip into the book is to enter another, surprisingly immediate world.” —The New York Times 
     
    First published in 1859, The Prairie Traveler was the indispensable book for looking to follow the American dream, pull up stakes, head into the wilderness of the frontier, and build a new life out West. With the official blessing of the US War Department, Randolph Marcy, a captain in the US Army, published The Prairie Traveler as the ultimate guide for these pioneers, covering everything from the best way to move wagons over hostile terrain and what to pack, to describing over thirty-four different trails to be taken and the dangers one may face on the way. Captain Marcy also passes on the knowledge he gained from local Indigenous tribes, from how to cook and wage war to their subtle tribal differences and customs. 
     
    The Prairie Traveler stands as an important piece of early American literature, and as a fascinating presentation of the now-lost Wild West: its perils, its rewards, and ultimately, the achievements of those who worked hard to survive. Captain Marcy’s guide remains the essential guide for those who wish to discover the trials and tribulations of the early pioneers of America, and it is an indispensable addition to any historical collection. 
     
    “A better understanding of the life of the perilous times of that past generation of hardy adventurers can be attained by a perusal of this work . . . an item of our priceless heritage.” —Western Pennsylvania History

    It was a Thursday at Chicago's Wrigley Field, mostly sunny with the wind blowing out. Nobody expected an afternoon game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs on May 17, 1979, to be much more than a lazy early-season contest matching two teams heading in opposite directions—the first-place Phillies and the Cubs, those lovable losers—until they combined for thirteen runs in the first inning. "The craziest game ever," one player called it. "And then the second inning started." 
    Ten Innings at Wrigley is Kevin Cook's vivid account of a game that could only have happened at this ballpark, in this era, with this colorful cast of heroes and heels: Hall of Famers Mike Schmidt and Bruce Sutter, surly slugger Dave Kingman, hustler Pete Rose, unlucky Bill Buckner, scarred Vietnam vet Garry Maddox, troubled relief pitcher Donnie Moore, clubhouse jester Tug McGraw, and two managers pulling out what was left of their hair. 
    It was the highest-scoring ballgame in a century, and much more than that. Bringing to life the run-up and aftermath of a contest the New York Times called "the wildest in modern history," Cook reveals the human stories behind the game—and how money, muscles and modern statistics were about to change baseball forever.
