Designed by Mary Winkelman Velgos. Arizona, after all, is a desert state. But photographer Michael Collier and writer Rose Houk did just that. From seven of Arizona's mountain ranges, we learn something of the state's first inhabitants, its settlers and fortune seekers, its diversity of landforms and ecosystems, and even something of contemporary life. This is a stylish and satisfying book and a testament to a wish come true.

Thoreau described them as sweepings from the floor of heaven.
For ages, snow crystals have captured the attention of poets and writers. In more recent times—particularly the last couple of decades—scientists have learned much about these seemingly simple but incredibly complex minute wonders.
Yet little of that scientific work has been available to the layman. Until now, and it's all packaged in an elegant and splendidly designed book. Author and researcher Kenneth Libbrecht clearly explains the processes by which crystals are formed and how to identify major crystal types. The highlight of the book is the exquisite and mesmerizing photography of Patricia Rasumussen—which remind us why these sweepings of heaven continue to astonish and amaze.
Outdoor Literature Category Winner. ISBN Ted Kerasote has a friendly style of writing, and in Out There you feel like you've settled in a chat with an old friend. ISBN This is a moving and gracefully written story, one that has been waiting to be told for a long time. This book, the story of that hike, could have easily slipped into the old and tired formula employed by most long distance hiking books.
They are both good writers and innovative too, bringing to Blistered a new and fresh approach. What makes this book work is the yin and yang of the two. Each has written alternating chapters—and that sets up a wonderful interplay of gender perspective as they deal with the rigors of life and the trail on their long journey northward. Tackling a subject as broad and diverse as the history of North American mountaineering is no easy task, easily ranking up there with making a winter attempt on Denali.

Henty's stories revolve around a fictional boy hero during fascinating periods of history. The heroes are diligent, courageous, intelligent and dedicated to their country and cause in the face, at times, of great peril. His histories, particularly battle acounts, have been recognized by historian scholars for their accuracy. There is nothing dry in Mr. Henty's stories and thus he removes the drudgery and laborious task often associated with the study of history.
This book centers on the struggles of England against France for the territory now known as Canada. With a wonderful drawing on front of book.
