Summary

From the New York Times–bestselling author, “a captivating guide to finding one’s way in the wild” (The Wall Street Journal). 
 
Master outdoorsman Tristan Gooley was just about to make camp when he sensed danger—but couldn’t say why. After sheltering elsewhere, Gooley returned to investigate: What had set off his subconscious alarm? 
 
Suddenly, he understood: All of the tree trunks were slightly bent. The ground had already shifted once and could easily become treacherous in a storm. 
 
The Nature Instinct shows how we, too, can unlock this intuitive understanding of our surroundings. Learn to sense the forest’s edge from deep in the woods, or whether a wild animal might pose danger—before you even know how you know. 
 
“[A] beautifully written almanac of tips and tricks we’ve lost along the way.” —The Guardian 
 
“A useful owner’s manual for anyone who likes to get outdoors and be immersed in something beyond the asphalt.” —Kirkus Reviews

    A “special and magnetic” memoir of one man’s lifelong love of fishing, the connection between man and nature, and the man who taught him about both (Carl Hiaasen, New York Times–bestselling author).   As a child in the 1960s, young British schoolboy Luke Jennings was fascinated by the rivers and lakes around his home and the mysterious worlds hidden beneath their surfaces. With library books as his guide, he applied himself to the task of learning to fish. But his progress was slow, and for years, he caught nothing.   Then a series of teachers presented themselves, including a young British intelligence officer, from whom he learned stealth, deception, and the art of dry-fly fishing. So began an enlightening yet mysterious journey of discovery that would lead to bright streams and wild country—but would ultimately end with his mentor’s capture, torture, and execution by the IRA.  Blood Knots is about angling, about great fish caught and lost, and about friendship, honor, and coming of age. Short-listed for both the Samuel Johnson and William Hill prizes, it is a shining example of “literature with that rare combination of the poetic and visceral” containing “some true set-the-book-down, gaze-out-your-window . . . ponder-that-last-beautiful-paragraph-you-just-read moments” (Michael Keaton, actor).

    In celebration of the twenty-year anniversary of the 2000 Subway Series, Jerry Beach details the history of the series between New York's Major League Baseball clubs. From the early history of the rivalry between the Giants and Dodgers, to the Mayor's Trophy games, from the fans' old barroom and playground arguments over whose team was better, to Mike Piazza and Roger Clemens battles, and far beyond, Beach leaves no stone unturned in this comprehensive account.  Mets and Yankees fans alike can read about their favorite games, players, and managers through the years, from Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman to Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle, from Al Leiter and Bobby Valentine to Derek Jeter and Joe Torre. They all played an integral part in shaping the history of the intercity rivalry. Readers might also uncover something about the psyches of Mets and Yankees fans alike. This book makes for a great gift whether you wear pinstripes or bleed blue and orange, or whether you hail from the Bronx or Queens. Finally, something both fan bases can agree upon, and the perfect addition to any baseball fan's shelf!

    The “compelling” New York Times bestseller by the Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist, capturing the 1964 World Series between the Yankees and Cardinals (Newsweek).  David Halberstam, an avid sports writer with an investigative reporter’s tenacity, superbly details the end of the fifteen-year reign of the New York Yankees in October 1964. That October found the Yankees going head-to-head with the St. Louis Cardinals for the World Series pennant. Expertly weaving the narrative threads of both teams’ seasons, Halberstam brings the major personalities on the field—from switch-hitter Mickey Mantle to pitcher Bob Gibson—to life. Using the teams’ subcultures, Halberstam also analyzes the cultural shifts of the sixties. The result is a unique blend of sports writing and cultural history as engrossing as it is insightful. This ebook features an extended biography of David Halberstam.

    Just two years after rowing solo across the North Atlantic at the age of twenty-five, Maud Fontenoy was ready for a new challenge?crossing the Pacific Ocean. Leaving from Lima, Peru, and traveling 4,400 miles in seventy-three days, Fontenoy landed in Hiva Oa in French Polynesia, becoming the first woman to complete what is known as the ?Kon-Tiki” route. Alone at sea for days and nights on end, Fontenoy’s story relates the ups and downs of her time at sea, from circling sharks to the celebrity welcome upon her journey’s end. Named one of Time Magazine International’s thirty most important people of 2005, Fontenoy presents the reader with a terrific, entertaining adventure story on the high seas as she faces the Pacific Ocean. Fontenoy overcame the odds as well as her personal doubts and fears, demonstrating not only her indomitable courage and strength, but proving once again that women can conquer the most difficult and treacherous obstacles.
