Description : This anthology collects the most riveting, real-life adventure stories from America s oldest mountaineering and conservation journal, Appalachia. Each of these essays, published from 1877 to the present, chronicles a tale of explorers who push the limits of endurance, weather, altitude, or personal achievement. Some of these explorers make history, such as the first American climber to ascend Kilimanjaro in 1932; others, such as the leader of an 1895 team attempting a first ascent of Canada s Mount Lefroy, never return. Freak accidents, legendary perseverance, and singularly colorful personalities and climbing luminaries such as Bradford Washburn, Elizabeth Knowlton, and Fritz Wiessner all figure into this fascinating, illustrated collection."

Description : After finishing work on the fundamentals of English grammar and syntax, the Hispanic student is often looking for ways to increase his or her general vocabulary. To that end, this book is designed either for studying by oneself or for participating in an academic program. To adapt the text to the widest levels of language skills, the words chosen for study range from the relatively simple to the more complex. Then, as a first step in outlining the meaning of the word, its Spanish equivalent appears in italics immediately after its initial listing and its sounds-of-speech pronunciation. The full analysis of the word ends with a space for the student's using that word in a sentence. That analysis, including a listing of typical synonyms and antonyms, is followed by an end-of-section series of comprehension checks. In short, the student sees the impact of context on the meaning of a word, has a familiar Spanish word as an added help to understanding the word, learns something of its origin, has an immediate opportunity to use it, and gets acquainted wit its common synonyms and antonyms. Finally, each of the twelve 'chapters' contains a short discussion of a common mistake to be avoided or a desirable quality of language (e.g., reliance on 'action words') to be developed.

Description : In 1977 I knew Tomas Rivera only as a name. I had read his novel, "... y no se lo trago la tierra" and I had talked about his work and career with friends. One cold winter day, after talking to Rolando Hinojosa about a keynote speaker for the First Midwest Latino Conference on Higher Education, I called Tomas and invited him to be that speaker. He accepted. Why did he come to the frozen corn fields of DeKalb, Illinois? He came because he knew the Midwest as a migrant worker. He came because he knew that Chicanos and Hispanics lived and worked throughout the United States. He came because he wanted to reach out to Chicanos and contribute to their life. He came because he knew that the human voice, the personal contact, was magic. He came because he knew the power of words and of communication, and he knew that an individual can make a difference. We are all better because Tomas came to DeKalb, and because he contributed so much. I remember Tomas as a strong but gentle man who loved life and loved people. This volume in honor of Tomas is a small contribution, a small repayment, for all that Tomas gave us. All of the contributors to this special volume of homenaje to Tomas Rivera have their own memories of Tomas. Each has been touched by his life and his works in different ways, yet each remembers. Their contributions to this volume are their way of honoring that memory and that man, Tomas Rivera. -- from the preface by Vernon E. Lattin.

Description : Craig Heatley was still at high school when he created a subdivision on the back of $200 saved from his paper round. A few years later, building a mini-golf course launched a business that in 1986 saw him become the youngest person to have then featured in the National Business Review's Rich List. But it is Sky Television that was his boldest and most precarious undertaking. The fledgling company teetered in the early nineties as rugby suffered its own crisis, torn between its amateur heritage and the forces of professionalism. Heatley could see the answer. Making it happen is part of his story. 'Craig built businesses that New Zealanders wanted before we knew we wanted them.' Sir John Key 'I found this book incredibly inspiring. The lessons about the importance of networking, taking risks and anticipating the future have encouraged me to think deeply about how we can get ahead.' David, Small Business Owner 'Without Craig, there'd be no Sky TV and without Sky we would have lost the battle for our players. The importance of Sky to professional rugby in New Zealand cannot be overstated.' Steve Tew

Description : Axe doesn’t suffer from addiction. He relishes it. Ever since an open heart surgery tested his metal, everyday challenges just haven’t been enough. Despite living the good life in Texas, his girlfriend, Sunshine, knows as well as he does that no matter how happy Axe might be, he’ll always have demons inside to battle. He trades his current ride, the Goat, for its steroid-pumped younger cousin, the Cadillaxe. After equipping the triple black beauty with mirror-mounted radar detection and thermal vision, he takes a test run to Colorado and back. Next he finishes building the most exotic chopper of his career and rides this chrome steed to Daytona Beach. But neither of these vehicles or trips are enough for his insatiable need for adrenaline. Finally, the idea of riding his BMW S1000RR motorcycle from the Pacific to the Atlantic consumes his twisted mind. Axe prepares by modifying the BMW, installing the latest gadgetry, and training. Eventually, brains pass the torch to balls as it becomes clear the task is not intended for the weak or sensible. Through pure determination, the leather-clad biker shatters the record for the fastest motorcycle ride across America.
