Dear Bookseller,
2009 is the year that Midpoint Trade Books Inc. has dedicated to you, the
independent bookseller. As you have learned in this packet, we have hired
James to work directly with you and your bookstore. This has been a long
time coming and we thank you for your patience. Beginning with this letter
you will begin to see a marked difference in how we present our titles to you
and also, in the near future, the ease in which we can take your order.
The most important aspect of Midpoint’s partnering with you is to join
your “buy local” campaigns whenever there are opportunities to do so. We
have a very easy co-op plan consisting of: “Just Ask.” We say YES to most
suggestions.
These are the types of programs we would like to work with you on:
• An author signing in which the author guarantees 20-30 people in
attendance
• An ad in your local paper or store newsletter highlighting one of our titles
• Using your store to take orders at events (within non-bookstore facilities
such as theaters, libraries, town halls, art gallery, etc…)
• Local radio or TV sponsored ads which mention the book and the your
store
• Free Galleys for your review
• And most anything else that has a proven track record of creating “buzz.”
James Fischer is your main contact and he will be keeping me up to date daily
on how his efforts are going so that we can respond quickly to any suggestions
you may have on how we are approaching you. We are all ears.
AllofusatMidpointwishyouahealthyandproftable2009.
Sincerely,
Gail J. Kump, Director of Marketing

POSITION & RELATION
INDIA HIXON RADFAR
This lovely book of poems, written in Woodstock, NY, carries in-
spiration from various places.
The book, prefaced by “12 Poems That Were Never Written,”
is divided into three sections, “Natural Megaron,” “Preposition
Poems” and “Lung Poems,” corresponding to three distinctive
methods Radfar used to write her way into time and space: set-
tling down with her journal on a hilly overlook after a 30 minute
walk; removing prepositions while still managing to talk about
herrelationtospace;writingatafxedtimeinthemiddleofthe
night.
In going as far as she can in each of these disparate directions, she
summons, with a surprising degree of certitude, a sense of how
thisspecifcplaceonceaffectedherwritingandherlife.
India Hixon Radfar, poet and former resident of Woodstock,
NY, has resettled in the Los Angeles area with her husband, Ber-
nard, where they continue to raise their son, Aram and their new
daughter, Leila, amidst an extended Persian family.

NOWHERE TO BELONG
tAles oF An extrAvAgAnt strAnger
YASMIN ALIBHAI BROWN
“ Enlightening, funny and moving-beautifully performed-”
-Colin Firth
Nowhere to Belong was originally commissioned by the Royal
Shakespeare Company, directed by Gavin Marshall. In part, this
show dramatizes the lot of the unwanted exile and uses words
of the bard to illuminate the condition millions fnd themselves
in away from their home countries. Provocative and powerful,
Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is a searing cultural presence and Nowhere
to Belong captures with warmth and grit how theatre and Shake-
speare helped change her life. Shakespeare is the lodestone of
this piece, which takes us back to Alibhai-Brown’s childhood in
the Asian community in Kampala, Uganda, during the parlous
era of Idi Amin. She also feelingly evokes the invidious position
(neither white nor black, and therefore suffering the contempt
and distrust of both) of the Asians in Uganda (a position that
eventually resulted in their expulsion).
Yasmin Alibhai Brown is an Uganda-born journalist and author,
based in London. She has written for The Guardian, Observer, The
New York Times, Time Magazine, Newsweek, The Evening Standard,
The Mail and other newspapers and is now a regular columnist on
The Independent and London’s Evening Standard. She is also a radio
and television broadcaster and author of several books.

JERRY BROWN SCHWARTZ
So Inspired: Preludes and Poems is a heartwarming poetry collec-
tionthatcelebratesthesweetnessoflife.Throughrefectionsof
enriching personal experiences, Jerry Brown Schwartz inspires
her readers to take in each passing moment and to focus on life’s
simple treasures. Refecting on her fulflling life, Jerry Brown
Schwartz composes her memories into words with simplicity and
warmth. Each poem, flled with the concepts of love, kindness
and gratitude for the many joys of life, is complimented by a pre-
lude that peers into this poet’s soul.
Schwartz’s slice-of-life poetry manages to observe the everyday
and fnd meaning in the minutiae: a lightning bug’s soft glow,
a simple act of kindness, a forest’s hidden pathways, a writing
spider’s intricate web, the comfort of a quilt, the fulflling bond
of sisterhood.
Jerry Brown Schwartz grew up on a farm in Smryna, Georgia
where the surrounding forests and creeks served as a playground
forherandherfvesiblings.Throughtheyears,Schwartzmain-
tained her love for the written word and Mother Nature. In retire-
ment, with her husband Harry’s encouragement, she continues
to write from her homes in Georgia, North Carolina and Florida.

ALZHEIMER’S 911
help, hope, And heAling For the cAregivers
FRENA GRAY-DAVIDSON
With humor, sensitivity and clarity, Frena draws on her over 20
years as a hands-on caregiver taking the approach to look at the
inner world of people with Alzheimer’s (or any kind of demen-
tia) similar to when she was a foreign correspondent in Asia and
India— looking with fresh and curious eyes to understand the
people from their perspective, without judgments.
She shares secrets of successful dementia care giving and reveals
the deep spiritual and emotion growth possible in dementia.
Even within the losses of Alzheimer’s, insightful caregivers can
discover their possible radiance and humor. This journey of con-
tinuing inner growth can renew the purpose and courage of the
caregiver, while bringing peace and resolution to the elder. Most
importantly, Frena shows how the care giving journey can be-
stow a whole new set of wonderful life skills on the caregiver.
Originally from England, Frena Gray-Davidson came to the USA
in 1986 (after several years in Asia/India). With over 20 years ex-
perience in Alzheimer’s care, her credits include support group
facilitator for the Alzheimer’s Association, keynote speaker for
the Royal Alzheimer Society of Great Britain, international pre-
senter of workshops on dementia, trainer/educator of dementia-
care workers/family caregivers and author of 17 books.

EDUCATION IN THE NEON
SHADOW
the First 50 yeArs oF the clArk county
school district
KAY CARL, JOHN R. GALLIFENT, JONATHAN PE-
TERS, RICK WATSON
No one could have predicted that a tiny outpost in the middle of
the desert between Salt Lake City and southern California would
become a world-renowned tourist destination. Nor could anyone
have envisioned that only 50 years later over 300,000 children
would be attending school beneath the bright lights of the Las
Vegas skyline.
Filled with photos dating back to the earliest days in southern
Nevada, Education in the Neon Shadow chronicles the birth and
growth of a school district in one of the most unique settings
imaginable.
Jonathan Peters, holds a doctorate in American Studies. Peters is
just as comfortable traversing the sparsely populated desert of
Southern Nevada as he was talking with tourists on the Las Ve-
gas Strip. This farranging curiosity is an apt trait for a man who
works as both a writer and adjunct professor at the University of
Nevada, Las Vegas. He is also the author of Springs in the Desert:
A Kids’s History of Las Vegas.

WELL PRESERVED
smAll bAtch preserving For the neW cook
MARY ANNE DRAGAN
Hands-on help on home preserving for the beginner!
Preserving is a hot topic in bookstores everywhere and Well Pre-
served is an ideal how-to manual for the novice. With a minimum
of equipment, a little time and a little know-how, anyone can
transform beautiful fresh produce into delicious homemade jams,
pickles, relishes and chutneys for year-round enjoyment.
Homemade preserves have a lower salt and sugar content than
those found at the grocery store and the home cook will have the
comfort of knowing precisely which ingredients went into those
jars.
Mary Anne Dragan gives expert advice on equipment, selecting
and preparing produce, food safety and storage. Her easy-to-
follow recipes range from sweet preserves (jams, jellies, marma-
lades, conserves and fruit sauces) and savory condiments (pick-
les, relishes, chutneys and ketchups) to main dishes and desserts
that use preserves as an ingredient.
Some of the 150 recipes include:
• Gingered pear jam
• Pickled asparagus
• Carrot and coconut chutney
• Lovely lavender vinegar
• Lamb chops with mint vinaigrette
• Raspberry vinegar sorbet
Home preserving is easy using this book and the results are tasty.

A Joe grundy mystery
MARC STRANGE
Ex-boxer Joe Grundy is embroiled in the intrigues of his own
boss, millionaire Leo Alexander, the owner of Vancouver’s Lord
Douglas Hotel. Somebody has murdered Leo’s live-in servant
and not-so-secret lover and Grundy has to get to the bottom of
the incident in order to clear the man he’s forged a bond with
since frst coming to work for him as security for the hotel. But
Leo’s past serves up more surprises than Grundy bargained for.
It seems Leo has had a life full of death, jilted mistresses, spurned
spouses, sharp business deals and explosive relationships with
estranged children. Another corpse pops up, Leo is arrested and
jailed and Grundy takes more hits to his body and psyche than
perhaps even he can handle. Thoughts of real and imagined death
are stalking the corridors of the Lord Douglas and Joe Grundy has
to keep swinging to stay alive and remain sane.

nated for an Arthur Ellis Award in 2008 for best frst mystery.

CONFRONTATIONAL
POLITICS
ForeWord by morton blAckWell, the
leAdership institute
H. L. RICHARDSON
To confront and defeat the effort of the political left to change the
American system of government into one resembling the socialist
welfare states of the rest of the world, Richardson spells out for
political conservatives the strategies and tactics to practice poli-
tics of confrontation -- as it is also conducted by their opponents.
Filled with many practical examples from Richardson’s own suc-
cessful efforts in California, the book is instructive, often enter-
taining and of immense value to the many 21st century conserva-
tives now girding for battle with the often radical initiatives of
some in the new Obama Administration as well as, of the union
bosses and liberal-left forces now with large majorities in each
house of Congress.
Richardson’s key point about his opponents is that they usually
practice the politics of deception in order to advance programs
the vast majority of Americans would never support if they knew
what the outcomes would be. He outlines many different ap-
proaches to confront these programs through political organizing
of like-minded people and organizations into activist coalitions.
H. L. Richardson served for 22 years in the California state sen-
ate, rising to a leadership position among Republicans. He cre-
ated fve enormously effective political action committees, two
of which today remain very active in California and nationally.
Not a “get-along, go-along” legislator, he successfully followed
a principled conservative path to political infuence, pioneering
focused direct mail and niche marketing techniques.

THE MAD TRAPPER
uneArthing A mystery
BARBARA SMITH
Ever since he was gunned down in a torrent of RCMP bullets
in February 1932, the true identity of Albert Johnson, a.k.a. the
“Mad Trapper of Rat River,” has remained a mystery. No one
has yet been able to positively identify the enigmatic loner who
shunned his neighbors and led police on a wild chase that ended
notonlywithhisowndeathbutwithoneoffcerkilledandtwo
others wounded.
In an attempt to settle once and for all the identity question, a
team of scientists and a flm production crew from Myth Mer-
chant Films exhumed Albert Johnson from his Arctic grave in
August 2007.
Author Barbara Smith was part of that team and has now written
a book about the experience.
Illustrated with striking photos from the exhumation, The Mad
Trapper: Unearthing a Mystery describes the scientists’ research
and the making of the documentary that will air on the Discovery
Channel this spring.
But was the true identity of the Mad Trapper at last revealed?
Barbara Smith is the bestselling author of 25 books. Canadian so-
cial history is one of her lifelong interests and she has also taught
writing-related courses in schools from elementary to university
level and for private industry. Barbara and her husband, Bob, live
on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.

situAtion
STEVE MICKLE WITH RICH HILLMAN
Patch Adams, MD, Gesundheit! Insti-
tute, says, “ You’ re going to die, get
over it. Why not Die Laughing! A hint,
not all entertainment, just maybe...”
It’s 136 pages of one-liners and more, with illustrations of cute
animals— with humor drawn from real life. It offers musings for
your consideration and will no doubt remind you of what you
already suspect: that what you feared most may not be that bad
after all.
Here is a sampling of the wit and wisdom found in Die Laughing!:
“Deathis...Boring.Justlyingaround.Beingaroundfowerswith-
out your hay fever bothering you. The ultimate excuse for not
picking up your socks. Having a near-death experience and when
your return to your body it says “not tonight dear, I have a head-
ache.”Attendingthefrstfamilyreuniontoincludeyourdistant
cousin Claude, who came over from the old country in 1803.”
Of course, the format is more about life. And if there is a message
here, perhaps it is to drop the guilt, anxiety and fear—and seek to
live in the now.
Steve Mickle holds a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth Univer-
sity. His career began in advertising. He worked 1973-1977 with
Rich Hillman; they started writing this book. Hillman died. To-
day, Steve is a portrait artist and lives with his wife Kyle Edgell,
a caricature entertainer and illustrator for this book. When not
writing about death, Mickle cheats it on his vintage motorcycle.

QUIET KINGMAKER OF LAS
VEGAS
e. pArry thomAs
JACK SHEEHAN
Quiet Kingmaker of Las Vegas pulls back the curtain on how E.
Parry Thomas helped build modern Las Vegas. From his arriv-
al in 1954, E. Parry Thomas believed in Las Vegas. While others
scoffed at the desert gambling outpost, he envisioned the resort
metropolis it would become. But it probably would not have hap-
pened without him. Taking charge of a tiny bank, Thomas built
the institution by doing something his competitors would not: he
loanedmoneytocasinooperators.Thomas’willingnesstofnance
the boys with shady pasts helped transform Las Vegas into an
international tourist mecca. Thomas, who for decades operated
largely out of the spotlight, reveals how he and other Las Vegas
pioneers made it all happen. Thomas describes the deals he made
to build and expand Strip hotels such as the Sahara, Stardust,
Sands and Riviera. He also provides fresh insights into Howard
Hughes.
Jack Sheehan has written 15 books, including Buried Lies, Skin
City, Golf Forever and Class of ‘47: Annapolis’ Best. He has also writ-
ten and sold screenplays, and co-hosted and produced a TV se-
ries, “True Vegas”. Sheehan won the Lowell Thomas award for
outstanding travel article, the Nevada Screenwriters Award and
was named outstanding feature writer in the West.

DISPATCHES FROM THE COLD
LEONARD CHANG
“ In clean and vernacular-accurate prose, Chang
painstakingly evokes the working-class lives of both
characters, as well as their ethnic prejudices and mis-
understandings.” --Publishers Weekly
What would you do if strange letters began appearing in your
mail box? Would you read them?
When the unnamed narrator of this novel opens misdirected let-
ters, he enters the harsh, disturbing world of Farrel Gorden.
Gorden, an assistant manager in a sporting goods store near New
Hampshire, hates his new Korean- American boss and is on the
verge of losing control of his hatred. As we watch the narrator
reconstruct the recent events in Gorden’s life, including an affair
with his boss’ wife and the wrenching consequences that follow,
the paths of these two disparate characters- letter reader and letter
writer- converge violently as each intrudes on the life of the other.
This is a story that blurs the distinction between the real and the
imaginary, the violent and the mundane and negotiates the exte-
rior world and interior workings of a vengeful mind.
Leonard Chang was born in New York City and studied
philosophy at Dartmouth College and Harvard University. He
received his MFA from the University of California at Irvine
and is the author of fve previous novels. His books have been
translated into Japanese, French and Korean and are taught at
universities around the world. He has won critical recognition for

ROBERT STIKMANZ
Sleeper Awakes is the mother-book from which the entire world of
Habdvarsha and its parallels derive. It is the story of a traveler,
Boyd, made homeless by a monstrous catastrophe and hunted for
the very fact of his survival. Sleeper Awakes defes classifcation
as it is an adventure story of quixotic proportions with fantasy
and science fction under and overtones that address political,
personal and cultural quandaries with a serio-comic eye that is as
refreshing as it is incisive.
Within its pages are adventures of a hero well known in the fu-
ture and the parallel present. Boyd, the traveler, is not stupid, but
he sets out as a blockhead. Faced with grave peril but aided by cu-
rious beings both puissant and comical, Boyd strives across land-
scapes at once mundane and remarkable to fnd true love, save
his skin and become somehow less of a blockhead. In this tale,

AFRICA’S CHILDREN

scotiA
SHARON ROBART-JOHNSON
Africa’s Children, chronicling the history of Black families of the
Yarmouth area of Nova Scotia, is a mirror image of the hopes and
despairs and the achievements and injustices that mark the early
stories of many African-Canadians. This extensively researched
history traces the lives of those people, still enslaved at the time,
whoarrivedwiththeinfuxofBlackLoyalistsandlandedin Shel-
burne in 1783, as well as those who had come with their masters
as early as 1767. Their migration to a new home did little to im-
prove their overall living conditions, a situation that would per-
sist for many years throughout Yarmouth County. By drawing on
a comprehensive range of sources that include census and cem-
etery records, church and school histories, libraries, museums,
oral histories, newspapers, wills, The Black Loyalist Directory,
and many others, the author has written a history overlooked for
far too long.
Sharon Robart-Johnson became involved in genealogical research
in the 1990s. A thirteenth-generation Nova Scotian, her Robart Af-
rican roots in Nova Scotia have been dated back to 1810, while her
Wesley ancestral roots can be traced to the mid-1700s. She lives
in the one-time all-Black community of Greenville, Nova Scotia.

THE ISLAMIC ANTICHRIST
the shocking truth About the reAl nAture
oF the beAst
JOEL RICHARDSON
In The Islamic Antichrist, Joel Richardson breaks new ground with
this devastating account of the possible connection between the
Biblical Antichrist and the Islamic Mahdi.
The Bible predicts that in the last day,s a charismatic leader will
establish a global following in the name of peace. The Koran also
predicts that a man will rise up to lead the nations, pledging to
usher in an era of peace. The man in the Koran is called the Mahdi,
or Islam’s savior. However, the man in the Bible is the Antichrist.
Could it be possible that this is the same person?
Richardson’s stunning research and analysis suggest that it is. In
The Islamic Antichrist, he exposes Western readers to the tradi-
tions of Islam and predicts that the end times may not be that far
away. His book will stun readers who are unaware of the similari-
ties between the Antichrist and the “Islamic Jesus.”
Joel Richardson (pseudonym) is a husband, father, artist, human
rights activist and lecturer. Joel has been involved in outreach and
ministry to Muslims since 1994. He is the co-editor of Why We Left
Islam: Former Muslims Speak Out and is the co-author with Walid
Shoebat of God’s War On Terror: Islam, Prophecy and the Bible.

KEV REYNOLDS
Making a horsehoe loop among some of the most spectacular
mountain scenery in all the Swiss Alps, the brand new Tour of
the Jungfrau Region is destined to become one of the classic walks
of Europe. In a journey of 9-10 days, the walker visits pastures,
ridges, summits and passes, skirts exquisite mountain lakes, and
gazes on waterfalls, gorges and glaciers - all in the shadow of
such iconic peaks as Wetterhorn, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Ac-
commodation is both plentiful and atmospheric and the route has
lots of bad-weather alternatives. Despite the nearby presence of
popular resorts like Grindelwald, Wengen, Lauterbrunnen and
Mürren, the Tour of the Jungfrau Region explores some surprisingly
remote landscapes, including part of a World Natural Heritage
site.

a rugged charm that’s all their own. This book suggests the most
straightforward routes to each of the area’s 21 Munro summits
of 3000ft (910m) and over, but also seeks out the wilder and less
walked-on ways around the back. It also covers the many slightly
smaller but equally worthwhile hills in the area, from the Cobbler
to the Luss Hills and Ben Ledi. As commercial plantations are
cleared to reveal native oak and pine and open water, the nation-
al park is steadily improving as a place for lower-level walks as
well. With their easy access, convenient shops and accommoda-
tion, and public transport by road, rail and water, these slightly
less daunting mountains make an excellent introduction.

AFRICAN SAFARI
into the greAt gAme reserves
PETER AND BEVERLY PICKFORD
An African safari is arguably one of the most alluring and easily
understood dreams of our time. Just the thought of an African
safari evokes thoughts of adventure, a journey through nature’s
greatest spectacle, a glimpse of the earth before man.
is an exploration of all that the word “safari” encompasses, from
journeys on horseback and dugout canoes, the quiet drifting of a
balloon and the tension of waiting on foot to the smell of dung,
soil and the rain.
African Safari is an intimate odyssey through the great wilderness
of Africa and an eye on its wild denizens, spiced with the echoes
of a romantic history.
African Safari is divided into eight chapters, among which include:
• South Africa (Kruger & the Kgalagadi)
• Namibia (Etosha, Damaraland and Kaokaland)
• Botswana (Okavango, Chobe, and Linyanti)
• Zimbabwe (Mana Pools and the Zambezi) Zambia (North
and South Luangwa)
• Tanzania (Ngorongoro and the Serengeti)
• Kenya (Masai Mara, Amboseli, and Tsavo) Rwanda & Ugan-
da (Parc des Volcans and Mgahinga)
Peter and Beverly Pickford are among Africa’s most celebrated
photographers and authors. They have published eight books
under their own names and contributed to many others, includ-
ing Miracle Rivers, which sold over 120,000 copies in three co-
editions. Their work has consistently received critical acclaim,

HELEN DUGDALE
We’ve all met or heard about the bride who gets a diamond on
her fnger and immediately turns into a monster and the extra
worry and stress of organizing a wedding can make even the most
reasonable and well-adjusted woman turn into a roaring mutant
creature that will let nothing stand between her and her goal – the
“perfect” wedding! This book is the antidote to this condition. It
is a practical and straightforward guide to the joys and perils of
getting hitched. Laced with humor and wit, the authors divulge
the rules of proposing, choosing the best man and bridesmaids,
choosing between a religious or civil ceremony, selecting the right
venue, who to invite, what to wear and say, planning stag and
hen nights and organizing a memorable honeymoon.

pathetically small contribution and buy this book for your be-
loved bride, lest she become Bridezilla!

JOSHUA GIDDING
“This book is so good, it is firting with greatness” –
Boston Globe
What happens when your life doesn’t quite live up to your and
everyone else’s expectations? Failure is what we fear most. And
yet, we have all failed in some aspects of our lives. Now, author
Joshua Gidding breaks the silence by giving an honest account of
hisownfailures,ormorespecifcally,hisownenduringsenseof
failure, from childhood until the present. Gidding chronicles his
struggles not with any outside enemy -- drugs, alcohol, illness --
butwithhimself,fromtryingtoftinathisposhprepschool,to
dealing with his rejection from Harvard, to making peace with his
position as a professor at a fourth-tier college and betraying his
beloved wife after she was diagnosed with cancer by having an
internet affair with another woman. All the while, Gidding places
the idea of failure in a larger philosophical context. The result is a
witty, provocative and utterly honest exploration of the personal
landscape of failure.
Joshua Gidding teaches writing and literature at Dowling College
on Long Island, where he is currently an associate professor of
English. He has previously published a novel entitled The Old Girl
(Holt),aswellasshortfction,nonfction,criticismandreviews.
He lives in Long Island, NY.

Pericles of Athens, Lorenzo of Florence, Alexander the Great,
Genghis Khan, Elizabeth I, Napoleon Bonaparte, Zhou Enlai,
Ghandi, Lee Kwan Yew – these are just some of the great names
who changed the course of history.
Far from being dated and irrelevant, their actions and thoughts,
and the way in which they conducted themselves in history’s
great events, are an invaluable source of lessons and inspiration
for today’s manager or executive.
In this fascinating, cross-disciplinary book, Jonathan Gifford ex-
amines ten critical issues (ex. getting the structure right, setting
the direction, forging partnerships, making things fourish) fac-
ing today’s manager and what history can contribute towards a
greater understanding of them.)
Moreover, Gifford uses the lens of history to provide contempo-
rary managers with new perspectives and solutions to essentially
similar problems faced by the great names of history.

A knock at the door. What could the policemen want at their door
at this hour?
“I’m afraid we have some bad news!”
Before these dreadful words were spoken it had been a normal
start to the day in the Germonprez residence. Carl checking on

early morning housework and their son Bart ...
“Your son has jumped off the roof!”
Atfrst,therewasnopain,justtheblur.Carl,inanemotionalhaze,

journey is long and may be never ending.
Belgian artist Willy Linthout was born in Eksaarde on April
1,1953. He started his career in comics as a prize winner in the

GABRIEL CONSTANS
“ ...an awesome read, insightful, woman loving—a
challenge to all spiritual seekers to rethink, re-vise and
dream anew.” -Bell Hooks
Buddha’s Wife is a historical novel about compassion, inspiration
and forgiveness.
What happened to 16-year-old Yasodhara and her two-day old
son, Rahula, after her husband (Siddhartha) left her sleeping in
the middle of the night to seek enlightenment?
As Yasodhara lies close to death and shares her experiences as a
young girl, a wife, a parent and then a nun, her son Rahula, who
has been in self-imposed exile in Sri Lanka, attempts a perilous
journey with his wife and child to reach his mother before she
dies and releases the secrets about his father that he’s kept buried
inside.
Will Rahula and the other woman in Siddhartha’s life reach Ya-
sodhara in time to ask for forgiveness? Can anyone ever forgive
the unforgivable?

THE FAST WAY TO HEAL FOR
LIFE
the heAling poWer is Within
HALANNA MATTHEW, PH.D.
“ Our natures are the physicians of our diseases.”
-Hippocrates (460 B.C.)
Suffering, pain, war, violence and disease are rampant in our
world today. Everyone is searching for a cure, a remedy or a way
to heal so they can be freed of the discomfort of illness. A good
part of what is considered aging is not aging, but disease. A lack
of knowledge is leading humanity towards a life of tragedy, un-
happiness and sickness.
The human body is wonderfully made to last a lifetime without
having recourse to operations, diseases, stress, sleepless nights,
obesity, infertility, anxiety and health problems.
In this book, you will discover how the body heals itself and be-
come aware of how the choices you make affect your health, the
environment and your relationships.
Dr. Matthew will convince you to embrace nature, time and pa-
tience as the three great physicians. To live so one can heal with-
out interference, to remove the cause of sickness and to rely on
the body’s innate wisdom is what our forefathers taught: “Do not
interfere with nature.”
Dr. Halanna Matthew, Doctor of Health Science, specializes in
restoring health, reversing disease, premature aging, prevention
and nutrition, is a member of Physicians Committee for Respon-
sible Medicine and author of Physical Mental and Spiritual Health
and Perfect Palette. A graduate of several universities, she has
achieved world acclaim through a lifetime dedication specializ-
ing in water fasts at healing institutions.

A SPORTSCASTER’S GUIDE TO
WATCHING FOOTBALL
decoding AmericA’s FAvorite gAme
MARK ORISTANO
Want to know what everyone is cheering about? Learn to enjoy
and understand the game with the football fanatic in your life.
This book is the ultimate football guide for the novice fan. You
will get answers to such complex questions as:
• What is that yellow line on the feld and why does it keep
moving?
• What down is it and why do I care?
• What is a “T- formation”?
Laced with hilarious and insightful anecdotes from Mark Orista-
no’s 30 year career as a pro football sportscaster, A Sportscaster’s
Guide to Watching Football will turn you into a football-watching
pro, or at least, let you fake it.
Time Out:
I was in the locker room before a game, and I saw an Oilers line-
backer furiously drawing on his shoes with a permanent marker.
This player, like many, had his ankle tape applied over the out-
side of his shoes instead of inside, which obviously covered the shoe
logo. And he was drawing the logo of his shoe contract on the tape.
“Wouldn’t it be easier,” I asked him, “to get taped inside and not have
to do the artwork?”
“Yeah, it would,” he replied, “but then I’d actually have to wear their
damn shoes and I hate ’em. So I wear the brand I like and do it this way
instead.”
Mark Oristano spent 30 years as a professional sports broadcast-
er. A die hard Cowboys fan, he has worked on both the Houston
Oilers and Dallas Cowboys Radio Networks, including the Cow-
boys’ win over the Steelers in Super Bowl XXX. His long and var-
ied career in broadcasting includes stints as a TV sports anchor,
sportswriter and radio show producer for NFL Films.

RUN AT DESTRUCTION
A true FAtAl love triAngle
LYNDA DREWS
Run at Destruction explores the true life love triangle between
three teachers/runners in small town America and the eventual
death of the wife in her own bathtub. Drews unfolds the drama
brilliantly right through to the sentencing of the husband to life
in prison and even an afterward from the mistress apologizing
years later. Sent to prison, the husband and mistress still can’t let
go and she becomes a prison bride.
Readers are left to decide for themselves if it was murder, suicide
or manslaughter by neglect. Run at Destruction is lust, murder and
obsession delivered with the beat of a runner’s heart, as the theme
of running is woven throughout. The book grabs at a large cross-
section of readers because everyone can relate to the desire and
often disaster that comes with affairs.
This is true crime court drama and author Drews exposes the
characters to such a depth that readers will feel like they are read-
ing a novel, only, the events really happened.
Lynda Drews, a Wisconsin native, recently gave the commence-
ment speech at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, her Alma
mater. One lesson she shared with the graduates was: “to journal
your life.” When Lynda, a marketing executive, made the deci-
sion to retire after her 30 year career, she returned to an earlier
passion. Run At Destruction is the outcome.

DR. LEWIS E. LOSONCY WITH DENNIS MCCLELLAN
In a family, on the job, at school, anywhere, there are people who

charred and dead at the bottom of the bag.
Life is like that. People are offered opportunities to recognize a
challenge and “pop.” Most never do. What separates those pop-
pers from the majority? How can a person learn to recognize the
importanceandsignifcanceofbecomingan“earlypopper?”
Here is a soft examination of the psychological movements that

this book will provide inspiration and motivation to make the
changes necessary to become an “early popper.”
Dr. Lewis E. Losoncy is the author of 23 books, including the best-
selling If It Weren’t for You, We Could Get Along! and the creative
psychologist behind attitude modifcation. He is a respected in-
ternational speaker and consultant. Dennis McClellan is a former

solo hiking trip. Author Amy Racina was hiking in a remote part
of King’s Canyon National Park in California’s Sierra mountains
when she lost the trail. With no warning, she suddenly fell 60 feet,
breaking both legs on the rocks below. She survived for four days
and nights, battling pain, fear and exhaustion, pulling herself
along with her hands and refusing to give up. She was miracu-
lously saved, her calls heard by a man who was partially deaf.
Angels in the Wilderness describes her dramatic rescue as she was
airlifted out, swinging helplessly from two straps, dangling fear-
fully beneath a helicopter high above the ravine where she had
fallen.
This is an amazing tale of despair, courage and hope. It speaks
of incredible strength and heartbreaking weakness as it details
what one woman believed might be the last days of her life. It is
a memoryofthedarkestoftimesandanaffrmationofmiracles.
Amy Racina has travelled all over the world by herself. Intro-
duced to backpacking at the age of 16, Amy began soloing in her
early 20’s. She has trekked hundreds of miles through the wilder-
ness that she loves, especially in the high country of the Sierra Ne-
vada Mountain Range and particularly in Kings Canyon/Sequoia
National Parks. She leads hiking groups and works as a graphic
artist.

Ernest Shackleton sailed to the South Pole as the First World War
broke out in Europe, intent on making the frst ever trans-Ant-

epic expedition, which he described as “the last great journey on
earth”.
During the journey, their ship, the Endurance, became trapped
by ice and was crushed, forcing the men to survive in and escape
from one of the world’s most hostile environments.
With no hope of rescue, Shackleton and four others set sail in a
small open boat on a 600-mile crossing to South Georgia. Ship-
wrecked on the uninhabited side of the island, they were forced
into making the frst ever winter crossing of the island, all the
time threatened by brutal cold and hunger.

a half years later, he had been presumed dead and the tale of his
perilous journey published in 1799 was greeted with great ac-

Travels in the Interior of Africa provided Europeans with one of
the frst detailed descriptions of the geography and peoples of
the African continent. The story of his remarkable journey is told

Park returned to West Africa on a second journey in 1805, but he

cover the termination of the Niger or perish in the attempt”. He
drowned in the Niger attempting to escape an attack by natives.
Mungo Park was a Scottish explorer of the African continent. He

26 FEET TO THE CHARLOTTES

JUNE CAMERON
Amutualloveofsailing,fshingandbeachcombingbrought June
Cameron and Paul Holsinger together, but it was their shared
sense of adventure that took them to the Queen Charlotte Islands
(Haida Gwaii).
In 1983, after three summers of calm sailing together, the couple
decided to cross the notoriously dangerous Hecate Strait in Paul’s
26-foot wooden sloop Wood Duck.
25 years ago, the Charlottes were not the tourist destination they
are today, but they were appealing to sailors for their sheltered
waters, pleasant views and protected anchorages. Salmon and
prawns abounded and harvesting abalone was not yet banned.
And onshore there was lots to explore.
As June and Paul visited uninhabited First Nations villages, a
remote logging camp, a defunct whale meat cannery and aban-
doned gold and copper mines, they were struck by how hard it
could be to make a living in the Charlottes. And like the islands’
ancient inhabitants, they found themselves challenged to keep
warm, fnd food, stay healthy and just plain survive, in this re-
mote and unforgiving place.

This is the new edition of the story of how the USA became the
greatestandmostinfuentialbrandofall.
Countries are among the most powerful brands on the global
marketplace. Love it or loathe it, never has there been a bigger or
stronger brand than the United States of America.
More than any other country, America has been blessed with a
huge range of positive brand attributes. The country is associ-
atedwiththedefnitiveyouthlifestyle(Coke,MTV,Levi’s);with
sporting prowess (Nike, NBA, Timberland); and with technologi-
cal supremacy (Microsoft, Dell, IBM).
America is well-informed (CNN, Time, Newsweek) and, naturally,
wealthy (American Express, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs). Of
the top 100 international brands, 64 of them are American-owned.
This book traces American history up to and including Obama,
the values of Brand America and the growth of anti-American-
ism. America is truly the greatest branding story of them all and

6 heads of garlic, a glug of olive oil,
and salt for roasting
2 free-range chicken breasts, skin-
on
salt and pepper to season chicken
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp butter
1 shallot, minced
1 glass of white wine
1⁄2 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper for sauce
small handful of parsley, fnely
chopped
1 sprig of tarragon, leaves only,
fnely chopped
preheat the oven to 400°F.
To roast the garlic, see page XX. The roasting for this many heads will
take a bit longer, about an hour. Set aside to cool while you prepare the
chicken.
Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
Get a large ovenproof frying pan (all metal, no plastic) over medium heat.
When the pan is hot, dribble in the oil, place the chicken breasts skin side
down, and just leave it to let the skin get golden and crispy, about 8 to 10
minutes.
Flip the chicken and immediately transfer the pan to the oven to roast for
10 to 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Prep the rest of the ingredients, which are for the sauce, including
squeezing out all the cloves of roasted garlic into a bowl and picking out
the stray bits of papery garlic skin.
When the chicken is done, remove the pan from the oven and transfer the
chicken to a plate to rest. Using an oven mitt, get the pan back on the stove
over high heat to start making the sauce. (Be careful as the handle will stay
hot for a long time.) Add the butter to the residual chicken fat and quickly
sweat the shallots until translucent.
Add the white wine and cook until the boozy smell evaporates. Add
the roasted garlic and roughly mush with a fork to incorporate it with the
sauce. Pour in the heavy cream, along with juices from the plate where the
chicken is resting, and reduce to thicken the sauce. Remove it from the
heat, adjust the favour with salt and pepper to taste, and fnish by mixing
in the herbs right before you spoon it generously over the plated chicken.
Serve with big chunks of baguette to sop up the sloppy sauce or simple
boiled potatoes.

vampire slayer’s garlic-laced chicken
When it comes to handling vampire chickens, it isn’t enough to just chop off their
heads . . . they’ll just keep running around. Well, a headless vampire chicken isn’t
much of a threat considering the fangs are in the beak, but they can still make a big
mess with the feathers and blood squirting all over.
The only way to deal with it is to pump it full of garlic, which happens to be a
very delicious way of preparing any kind of night fowl creature. Variations on the
popular recipe “Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic” is actually an excellent way to
deal with any kind of poultry, and any cut of poultry, and will help keep all varieties
of vampires away.

cheesy mac’s mac and cheese
Here is a surefre way for single dudes to impress the ladies.
First, all you need are some cheesy mac-daddy pickup lines. And then when you
get her back to your place seal the deal by making some mac and cheese.
The secret to successful cheesy mac pickup lines or cheesy mac and cheese: the
cheesier the better. Works every time!
6 oz cheese with body—cheddar,
Gruyère
3 oz soft cheese—brie, camembert
3 oz hard cheese—parmesan,
asiago, Grana padano
1 oz stinky cheese—blue cheese,
smoked cheese
1 tbsp butter (more for the
breadcrumb topping)
1 tbsp four
1 1⁄2 cups milk, warmed up
1 tsp powdered yellow mustard
2 cups dried macaroni
salt for the pasta water
3 tbsp melted butter
1⁄2 cup dry breadcrumbs
have all your ingredients measured out before you start. Because when it
comes to fancy-pants cooking, it’s all about fancy little bowls for the ingre-
dients. Weigh your cheese and grate or crumble it (or vice versa), and set it
out in a bowl. The fancy pants are optional.
Preheat the oven to broil.
Get a large pot of water going on high heat for the pasta. And get
another large pot over medium-high heat. Toss in the butter, and just as
it melts sprinkle in the four, mixing with a whisk. When the two are
clumpy but incorporated add a little bit of the warm milk while whisk-
ing continuously. When the mixture is thick and smooth, add a little more
milk while whisking, continuing to add more and more milk each time until
you’ve poured in all of it. Keep stirring as the mixture comes to a boil, and
then turn down the heat to medium-low. Whisk in the mustard.
By now the water should be boiling. Add some salt and toss in the
macaroni.
Now back to the sauce. Add the grated cheese a bit at a time, stirring so
it stays smooth.
Cook your macaroni until it is al dente, then drain it in a colander. Toss
the pasta into the sauce and stir it all up. Transfer the mess into a baking
dish.
In a small bowl, thoroughly combine the breadcrumbs with the melted
butter. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mix over the top of the macaroni. Blap
it in the oven for just a few minutes until the breadcrumbs get golden and
crispy on top.
Take the macaroni out of the oven, and let it sit
for 10 minutes to cool down before you, er, heat
things up.
Turn down the lights and turn up the cheese.

crispy-skinned trout sandwich
with charred green onion and jalapeño dressing on a toasted baguette with feta and red pepper
Now that you are comfortable with direct-fame cooking, it is time to create a
complex main dish using the techniques you’ve learned so far with new ingredients.
With your increasing manual dexterity and understanding of temperature control you
will be able to tackle more and more complicated tasks.
This third degree rounds out your program, and after becoming a graduate you
will have the confdence to succeed in the real world of incendiary cooking.
1 medium red pepper
1 crusty baguette
2 small river trout fllets, skin-on,
bones removed
vegetable oil for preparing the trout
for torching
arugula
2 oz feta, crumbled
Dressing
1 jalapeño
4 green onions
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp rice vinegar
big pinch of salt
1⁄4 cup olive oil
fi re up your blowtorch and start with your red pepper. Jab it securely onto
the end of a fork and scorch the living daylights out of it. You cannot burn
it too much—get it black as a piece of charcoal. While it’s still hot, put it
in an airtight container and put on the lid. The steaming will make peeling
off the skin easier.
The same applies to the jalapeño. Jab it with a fork and char it so badly
that you need to check dental records to fnd out it was a jalapeño. Set it
aside to cool. (It doesn’t need to go into a container.)
Hold the green onions using a pair of metal tongs, and go over the green
parts with the hot part of the fame until they start to turn black, but don’t
char them as badly as the peppers. Spend some extra time on the white
parts. Let it cool, then cut into 2-inch lengths.
In the sink under cool running water, rinse both peppers using your
thumbs to rub away the charred black surface. They should both be soft
enough to be pulled the open so you can scoop out the seeds and stem by
hand. Slice the red pepper into strips and set aside.
Place the jalapeño, green onions, garlic, vinegar, salt, and oil in a food
processor, and blend until smooth.
Split your baguette lengthwise in 2, and give it a nice gentle toasting
with your blowtorch. Slather as much of the green dressing as you like on
both sides of the bread before you move on to cooking the trout.
Make sure the trout does not have any remaining bones. Tweezers are the
best way to remove them. Rub both sides with a little bit of oil, and lay
them skin side down on an inverted metal baking tray. Don’t do this blow-
torching on a plate or even a ceramic plate—it will shatter into a bajillion
pieces.
Work your way up and down the trout to give it an even gentle heat. Do
this slowly and evenly until the fesh starts to get little dark fecks, and the
trout is cooked most of the way through.
Pick up the trout and lay it cooked side down on the bread. Go over the
skin carefully with the blowtorch until the skin is lovely and crispy. Top
with little red pepper strips, arugula, and a good sprinkling of feta cheese.
Congratulations! You are now a graduate of the Academy for Incendiary
Arts.

THE FACELIFT LETDOWN
When Results Don’t Meet expectations
SAM T. HAMRA, M.D., F.A.C.S.
The Facelift Letdown is a “breath of fresh air” for those seduced
by the images of Dr. 90210, Nip/Tuck and the fashy cosmetic sur-
geons of Extreme Makeover. With substance and authority, Dr.
Hamra, an internationally renowned plastic surgeon, explains his
groundbreaking surgical techniques including the fve most com-
mon problems associated with a “bad” facelift, why, if a facelift
is so “good”, do so many rich and famous people look so “bad”,
telltale signs of bad surgery and, most importantly, how you can
interview your surgeon, determine the best procedure for you,
and avoid costly facelift mistakes and The Facelift Letdown.
Dr. Hamra’s timely book refects his two decades of leadership
and this beautifully illustrated book contains many case studies
and photographic histories from grateful and youthful looking
patients. A primer to avoid the problems of “overdone surgery”,
frozen expressions, windswept looks and bizarre results for any-
one considering a primary or secondary
facelift.

sor, a University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center Adjunct

EDITH WHARTON
Edith Wharton journeyed to Morocco in the fnal days of the
WW1, at a time when there was no guidebook to the country.
In Morocco is the classic account of her expedition. A seemingly
unlikely chronicler, Wharton, more usually associated with
American high society, explored the country for a month by
military vehicle. Travelling from Rabat and Fez to Moulay Idriss
and Marrakech, she recorded her encounters with Morocco’s
people, traditions and ceremonies, capturing a country at a
moment of transition from an almost unknown, roadless empire
to a popular tourist destination.
Her descriptions of the places she visited - mosques, palaces,
ruins, markets and harems - are typically observant and brim
with color and spirit, whilst her sketches of the country’s history
and art are rigorous but accessible.
This is a wonderful account by one of the most celebrated novelists
and travel writers of the 20th century and is a fascinating portrayal
of an extraordinary country.
Stanfords Travel Classics feature some of the fnest historical
travel writing in the English language, with authors hailing
from both sides of the Atlantic. Every title has been set in a
contemporary typeface and has been printed to a high quality

Edith Wharton (1862-1937) was an American novelist, short

THE TEST
A novel
PATRICIA GUSSIN
“ The Test earns novelist Patricia Gussin a solid A+ for
smart plotting, top-notch characters and intense
action.What more could a reader want?” —Debby
Stowell, Circle Books
Renowned philanthropist and billionaire Paul Parnell had
reached the pinnacle of monetary success, but not without cost.
Had he put too much emphasis on work and spent too little time
with his family?
Determined to leave something far more valuable than money to
his six children, Paul instructs his lawyers to create an unusual
last will and testament. This unorthodox will, which stipulates
that the lion’s share of Paul’s two billion dollar estate be given to
the heirs who passes “the test,” was Paul’s last hope of creating an
enduring legacy by inspiring his children to give back to society
and embrace a code of moral values.
The six children—Rory, Frank, Dan, Monica, Carla and Ashley—
have only one year to make a difference. But what a difference
one year will make.
Before these six very different siblings can complete the test,
they’ll be forced to face their personal demons and the incredibly
evilinfuencethatcouldclaimoneoftheirown.
Patricia Gussin is a physician who grew up in Grand Rapids,
Michigan and practiced in Philadelphia. She and her husband,
Bob, divide their time between Longboat Key, Florida and East
Hampton, New York. She is also the author of Shadow of Death
and Twisted Justice.

STRANGE FATALITY
the bAttle oF stoney creek, 1813
JAMES E. ELLIOTT
In the spring of 1813, the largest amphibious force in American
history to that point - 6,000 troops aboard 140 vessels - landed
near the mouth of the Niagara River, routed the British garrison
and captured Fort George. It was the second consecutive Ameri-
can victory and a sign that events of 1813 would redress the ca-
lamities of 1812.
The badly mauled British army reeled westward, its leadership
uncertain where, or how, the retreat would end. The American
forces were poised to deliver the critical blow the War Hawks in
Congress had dreamed of when they predicted a four-week war
to subdue the British province.
10 days later, in a feld near Stoney Creek, the promise of that
triumph was smashed in a terrifying night action which hinged
on a single bayonet charge that carried the American artillery and
decapitated the American force.
Little understood, even by Canadians, Stoney Creek was one of
the most decisive reversals of fortune in the War of 1812 and de-
termined the fate of the colony that would become Ontario.
James Elliott is a Canadian journalist and author with a keen in-
terest in early North American history. He has written widely on
the War of 1812 and was a consultant on the award-winning tele-
vision series “Canada: A People’s History.” He is also author of
the critically acclaimed book If Ponies Rode Men.

done in the context of life and living. Cooking is more than put-

BLUE HEAVEN
encounters With the blue poppy
BILL TERRY
Renowned plant explorer, Frank Kingdon-Ward, came
upon “ a stream of blue poppies, dazzling as sapphires
in the pale light.”
“With wit and erudition, Bill Terry examines the world of the fabled
Himalayan Blue Poppy and its relatives. Ranging from the slopes of the
high Himalayas through the gardens of contemporary poppy lovers, Ter-
ry—himself an accomplished Meconopsis grower—also provides clear
guidelines for the successful cultivation and propagation of these notori-
ously temperamental beauties. But buyer beware! Meconopsis obsession
may ensue.”—Des Kennedy, author of An Ecology of Enchantment
In Blue Heaven, Bill Terry—a leading North American authority
on Asiatic Poppies—tells the story of the enchanting Himalayan
Blue Poppy. First discovered in Tibet in 1924, the poppy was soon
introduced to cultivation and proved challenging and stubborn,
some gardeners even believed the plant to be impossible to grow.
Terry debunks this myth, relating his own encounters with the
blue poppy and showing how, given a suitable climate, a patient
and persistent gardener can raise this most alluring of perennial
plants.
Gorgeous photographs accompany the text throughout, leading
to a visually stunning collection of images and stories, illuminat-
ingthisrareandpreciousfower.
Bill Terry specializes in plant propagation and has taught and
lectures on the blue poppy and its relatives. His collection of Asi-
atic poppies (Meconopsis) is the most diverse in North America.
Now retired, Bill has a broadcast career that spanned 35 years
and encompassed 13 jobs in radio and television production and
management.

BASIC JAPANESE COOKING
JODY VASSALLO
A guide to creating the fresh taste of Japan in your own kitchen.
When most of us think of Japanese food, we don’t think of food
we can prepare ourselves. Basic Japanese Cooking will change that
and remove the intimidation out of making authentic Japanese
cuisine. As author and traveler Jody Vassallo explains, once you
let go of the idea of perfection, Japanese food can come together
in under half an hour and it’s fun to make, too.
While it takes years of training to become a recognized sushi mas-
ter, in your own kitchen, you don’t need to hold yourself to such
high standards. As long as the ingredients are fresh and the rice
is cooked well, what you prepare is bound to be delicious. Basic
Japanese Cooking doesn’t stop at sushi, either. It includes recipes
for mouthwatering soups and colorful udon, soba and ramen
noodle dishes, along with Japanese favorites such as tempura and
edamame. With color photographs illuminating everything from
basic ingredients to suggested utensils, this book is a great place
for curious cooks to begin.

MERLENE MILLER, MA, & DAVID MILLER, PHD
Perhaps you, or someone you love has tried unsuccessfully once,
twice or more to gain and maintain freedom from addiction.
The truth is that many addicts make upwards of 50 attempts to
gain sobriety, only to relapse again and again.
Many people say that these failed attempts at sobriety result from
a lack of willpower. But this is simply not so. Addiction is largely
a disease of the brain and the biochemical imbalances associated
with it create chronic abstinence-based symptoms-such as anxi-
ety, confusion, severe cravings and depression-that often lead to
relapse.
For many individuals, staying sober and free from addiction
means living with severe emotional, mental and physical pain-
unless proper brain chemistry is restored.
In this book, addiction recovery experts Merlene and David Mill-
er present many revolutionary and emerging treatment options
for not only gaining sobriety, but maintaining it as well.
Merlene and David Miller are a husband and wife team who have
workedintheaddictionfeldfor25yearsasauthors,educators,
consultants and treatment professionals. They are relapse pre-
vention specialists with a deep concern for those for whom tradi-
tional treatment has not worked. The Millers live in Missouri with
the Papillion dog, Sammy.

APPALACHIAN TRAIL DATA
BOOK - 2009
DANIEL D. CHAZIN, ED.
Best buy for Appalachian Trail trip planning
Sometimes termed “the bible of A.T. hiking,” each year’s Data
Book consolidates the most basic information from 11 detailed
guidebooks into a lightweight table of distances between major
Appalachian Trail shelters, road-crossings, and features. It is di-
vided according to the guidebook volumes (one state or two or,
for Virginia, parts of a state) and updated each December to ac-
count for Trail relocations, new (or removed) shelters, and other
changes. In addition to codes for lodging, food, water, and other
essentials, the Data Book is keyed to both the individual guide-
book sections and to the separate maps. Day-hikers and long-
distance hikers alike rely on this volume for armchair planning as
well as on-the-trail orientation.
Alawyerandlongtimeauthorfor,andoffcialof,theNewYork-
New Jersey Trail Conference, Daniel Chazin has edited the “Ap-
palachian Trail Data Book” since 1983.

recipes And menus For A 2,000-
mile hike
LOU ADSMOND
Appalachian Trail long-distance hikers do not diet. They need
4,000 or more calories a day, have to carry them all on their backs
and still work all of them off and more! (Well, the guys tend to lose
more weight than the women.) Lou Adsmond wanted to make it
work for her husband and son and it did. Here are her schedules
for “mail drops” of food, recipes for at-home advance cooking
and directions for on-the-trail preparation and cooking—the lat-
ter are on small cut-out tabs that can be dropped inside those
Ziploc bags full of ingredients. It’s a 2,175-mile course of meals.
The Appalachian Trail runs from Springer Mountain, GA to
Katahdin, ME. Millions of day hikers and thru hikers (those who
walk the entire trail) visit this National Scenic Trail.
The previous edition (9781889386096) has sold over 1,000 copies!

APPALACHIAN TRAIL THRU-
HIKE PLANNER
4th edition
DAVID LAUTERBORN, EDITOR
Each year, nearly 2,000 men, women and, occasionally, children
set out to hike the 2,174 miles of the Appalachian Trail from Geor-
gia to Maine (or vice versa).
Good preparation is often the key to whether they become part of
the 20-25 percent who make it. For this adventure of a lifetime, the
Thru-Hike Planner will help you chart a course, work out a bud-
get, choose gear, plan meals, get in shape and otherwise inspire. It
comes with homework: charts and worksheets and checklists and
forms, all designed to be ripped out and spread over the kitchen
table and then stuck in your pack.
Formerly the popular Appalachian Trail Workbook for Planning
Thru-hikes, which went through six revisions between 1992 and
2003, this title underwent a total make-over in 2005, bringing to-
gether the up-to-date advice of recent hikers with the mileages
and trends seen by the trail’s managers. This 4th edition advanc-
es the mileages and shelters to 2009 status and includes new tips.
David Lauterborn, a long-time travel writer formerly with Lonely
Planet, now lives near the Appalachian Trail on the Virginia-West
Virginia border.

In 2000, inspired by her father, Leslie Mass decided she would
turn a lifelong fantasy into reality.
At the age of 59, she began to train for a grueling journey, a thru-
hike of the 2,000-mile Appalachian Trail.
In Beauty May She Walk chronicles Leslie’s struggles and triumphs
during her hike. On the trail, Leslie struggles with how to balance
the needs of her family and friends while making the trail a prior-
ity; how to shed years of social conditioning that dictate how a
woman should act and how to know when to ask for help, while
understanding that sometimes, help has to come from within.
As the terrain toughens, she struggles to keep up physically with
the trail community she depends on socially to keep going and
realizesthediffcultyofmaintainingherobligationstofamilyand
friends.
After September 11, 2001, it all changes for a hiker even more
alone on the Appalachian Trail.

and master’s and doctorate in early and middle-childhood educa-
tion from Ohio State University. She and her husband, George,

And other plAys
SIDNEY GOLDFARB
These four plays by Sidney Goldfarb are politically astute and
savagely funny, though remarkably compassionate, like a stew
cooked up by the Marx Brothers, Groucho and Karl, after years
of Zen Meditation.
Pursued by the forces of murder and exploitation, ordinary peo-
ple struggle just to stay alive. The path to liberation is through the
humanbody,atoncethearenaofconfictandthelocusofheal-
ing in a culture torn by menace and mayhem. This is a Theater of
Incarnation. It is also a Theater of Celebration. Startling invention
in language and structure turn palpable horrors into unexpected
forms of transcendence.
Goldfarb ranks among the indispensable experimental play-
wrights of his generation.
Poet and playwright Sidney Goldfarb is a Professor of English at
the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he has taught cre-
ative writing since 1973. He is the author of three books of poetry
and has produced nine plays.

ROBERTSON DAVIES
mAgiciAn oF Words
NICHOLAS MAES
Born in Thamesville, Ontario, a student at Queen’s University in
Kingston in the 1930s and editor and later publisher of the Peter-
borough Examiner from the 1940s to the mid-1960s, playwright, es-
sayist, critic, professor and novelist Robertson Davies (1913–1995)
was one of Canada’s pre-eminent literary voices for more than a
half-century. Davies, with his generous beard and donnish man-
ner, was the very epitome of the “man of letters,” a term he ab-
horred. Best known for his Deptford Trilogy of novels (Fifth Busi-
ness, The Manticore, World of Wonders), he also wrote two other
trilogies (Salterton and Cornish) and was at work on the third
volume of another trilogy (Toronto) when he died. With a life as
richincharacterandcolorasthatfoundinhisfctionandessays,
Davies had a great fondness for magic and myth, both of which
are found in abundance in his work, along with a prodigious
streak of wry humour.
Nicholas Maes teaches classics at the University of Waterloo and
is also a high-school history teacher. He wrote Locksmith and Dead
Man’s Float and has published several short stories and reviews
in journals, including The Fiddlehead, Books in Canada, and The Dal-
housie Review. Originally from Montreal, he now lives in Toronto.

VILHJALMUR STEFANSSON
Arctic Adventurer
TOM HENIGHAN
Born in Manitoba of Icelandic parents, Vilhjalmur Stefansson
(1879–1962) became one of Canada’s most famous and contro-
versial Arctic explorers. After graduate studies in anthropology
at Harvard University, Stefansson lived with and studied Inuit
in the Mackenzie River Delta in the Northwest Territories in the
winter of 1906–07. In two subsequent expeditions he completed a
major anthropological survey of the Central and Western Arctic
coasts and islands of North America; located and lived with the
Copper Inuit, a previously unknown group of aboriginal people;
and discovered the world’s last major land masses. During his
third and fnal great Arctic expedition from 1913 to 1918, some
of Stefansson’s men perished tragically, an outcome that severely
damaged his reputation. Nevertheless, the hardy explorer con-
tributed immensely to knowledge about the Far North, particu-
larly in his championing of the “Friendly Arctic.” Part scientist,
part showman, Vilhjalmur Stefansson was truly unique among
polar adventurers.
Tom Henighan is the author of several novels for young people,
including Viking Quest, Viking Terror (nominated for the Ot-
tawa Book Award) Mercury Man (nominated for the Red Maple
Award), and Demon in My View. In 2008 he was honored with the
Victor Tolgesy Arts Award for his contributions to culture in Ot-
tawa, where he lives.

Long-dead British soldiers, grieving lovers, an undead priest -
Niagara-on-the-Lake’s long and colourful history is kept alive by
ghosts of its past. Widely considered to be Canada’s most haunt-
ed community, the town has preserved much of its built heritage,
thus providing perfect “haunts” for age-old spirits. Through his-
torical investigation and engrossing storytelling, the authors have
detailed nearly two dozen ghosts. An ageless tavern is home to
thespiritofaBritishoffcerslaininitsbasement,agentlemanly
ghost except when encountering Americans; a woman comes
face-to-face with a hero from the past while working at one of
the nation’s most cherished historic landmarks; visitors to Queen-
ston Heights are stalked by phantom soldiers.Historical research
is embedded in every tale in an attempt to establish the line be-
tween fact and fantasy. But numerous eyewitness accounts will
draw the reader into these unusual and often unnerving stories.

SECRETS OF THE WORLD’S
UNDISCOVERED TREASURES
LIONEL AND PATRICIA FANTHORPE
Treasures of many kinds still lie hidden below crumbling castles
and ruined monasteries; in macabre tombs; in subterranean laby-
rinths and sinister caverns. Many sunken treasures lie beneath
the seas, oceans and lakes of the world. Vast stores of pirate gold
are still hidden on many a real life treasure island such as Oak
Island at Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. Many treasures were looted,
hidden and lost after the two World Wars- Hermann Goering,
for example, one of most powerful leaders of Nazi Germany, is
strongly suspected of hiding huge treasures at Veldenstein and
Lake Zeller.
This fascinating, expertly researched book brilliantly reveals all
these unsolved mysteries.
The fnal section covers useful ideas for treasure-seekers: the
study of old maps and charts, coded messages, secret symbols,
and intensive research into the lives and locations of those people
throughout history who probably, in all certainty, had treasure
to hide.
Lionel and Patricia Fanthorpe have investigated the world’s
unsolved mysteries for over 30 years and are the authors of 15
bestselling books including Mysteries and Secrets of Santeria, Voo-
doo and Obeah and Mysteries and Secrets of the Masons. They live in
Cardiff, Wales.

the ‘Monuments Men’” and their discovery of more than 1,000 re-

by Adolph Hitler and the Nazis.
Rescuing Da Vinci includes photographs of Hitler designing the
Fuhrer Museum, along with photographs of the extraordinary
measures taken by museum offcials in Europe to protect their
masterpieces from the Nazis’ planned looting.
Ultimately, Hitler and the Nazis’ unprecedented theft of Europe
gave way to the greatest treasure hunt in history, the search for
art and other treasures valued at more than a trillion dollars! The
Allies created a special force known as Monuments, Fine Art and
Archives Section comprised of museum directors, curators and
art historians- men and women from more than 15 nations who
spent more than six years locating, rescuing and then returning
these treasures to the countries from which they were stolen.
Efforts to locate and return the missing artwork continue to this
day.
Robert M. Edsel began his career in the oil & gas business. While
living in Europe in 1996, he developed an interest in the looting
and rescuing of artworks during WWII. He has spent the last

THE CUSTOMER KEY
STEPHEN BROWN
The Journal of Marketing described him as “the fnest
writer in our feld today”. Another journal described
him as “ the anti-Christ of marketing” .
Thefnalbookinthetrilogyofmanagementconspiracythrillers
by marketing’s most radical thinker.
Readers beware! Dan Brown fans are being brutally murdered,
one by one, as they follow The Da Vinci Code tourist trail.
Paris has never seen anything like it. When the murders are rep-
licated in Rome – during a guided tour of Angels and Demons lo-
cations – and further imitated in Washington DC, the setting for
Brown’s next Robert Langdon novel, the search is on for a serial
killer.
Meanwhile, in southern California, the General George S. Patton
School of Creative Writing is getting ready to welcome another
intake of wannabe novelists. Notoriously barbaric, its book
boot camp takes no prisoners, kicks serious butt, focuses on mar-
keting as the key to literary success and turns raw writing recruits
into savage scribbling machines. Psychotic, some say.
The fnal part of Stephen Brown’s management conspiracy tril-
ogy, The Customer Key is the heart-pounding sequel to The Market-
ing Code and Agents and Dealers. The end of marketing is nigh and
only our heroes, Abby and Simon, can save it…
Stephen Brown is no relation to Dan Brown, though he wishes it
were otherwise. Instead, Stephen Brown is a professor or market-
ing at the University of Ulster. He has written numerous books
about marketing.

No, rather it is a shell game comprised of contracts designed to
rob artists of their time, dreams and publishing rights.
Dancing with the Devil reveals startling new details about key
events in the fast paced, controversial (and sometimes deadly)
world of Hip-Hop.
In revealing the dark side of the industry, Curry hopes to provide
a road map for reforms necessary to prevent artists ending up in
poverty, in prison or in the grave.
Mark Curry was born on July 15, 1971 in New York City. He’s an
Atlanta-based entertainer who was signed to the Bad Boy Enter-
tainment record label from 1997 until 2005. He’s mentored and
worked with Sean “Puffy” Combs for over 10 years. Mark Curry
has appeared on the following albums: “Gangsta Shi-”, “Danger-
ous MC’s” and “American Dream”.

DOING TIME
KAZUICHI HANAWA
“ Hanawa recreates this alien world with laser-like de-
tail, displaying the greatest artistic versatility, the end
result is a fascinating anthropology of a culture that
would seem foreign even to the Japanese.” Andrew
D Arnold, Time.com
Up to now, Kazuichi Hanawa expressed himself through works
of fction. The fantastic world of tales from the Middle Ages in
Japan was his favorite setting. In 1994, Hanawa was arrested for
owningafrearm.Anavidcollectorofguns,hewascaughtwhilst
testing a remodeled handgun in the backwoods, miles away from
anyone and imprisoned for three years.
Forbidden to record any details whilst incarcerated, Hanawa rec-
reated his time inside after his release. He did so with a meticu-
lousness rarely found in comics, as every detail of his cell, every
meal that was served, the daily habits of his cell-mates and, above
all, the rigid regime are minutely noted and bring us into the very
mindset of a Japanese prisoner. Made into a live action movie in
2002 by Sai Yoichi (All Under the Moon).
Born April 17, 1942 (or 1947) in Japan, cult horror manga-ka
Hanawa began his career in Garo in 1971 with Kan no Mushi, a tale
about a destructive boy who is taken to a sadistic accupuncturist.
He then focused on macabre satires based on Japan’s medieval
aristocracy. In 1994, he was arrested and put in jail for possession
ofillegalfrearms.Afterhisrelease,hecollectedhisexperiences

THE 12 INVESTMENT MYTHS
Why individuAl investors Are FAiling
miserAbly And hoW you cAn Avoid being
one oF them
JACK J. CALHOUN JR.
Over time, the stock market creates great wealth for investors.
And yet, most investors do not become wealthy by investing in
the stock market, instead having experiences that range from in-
adequate to disastrous.
So why the disconnect?
The answer is found in a set of widely held, mistaken beliefs about
whatittakestobeasuccessfulinvestor.Atfrstglance,thesein-
vestment myths seem grounded in logic. In reality, though, these
beliefs provide investors with perfect blueprints for investment
failure by encouraging in them an emotion-driven, trading-inten-
sive mentality. These myths are propagated by Wall Street, which
reapshugeproftsfromthisbehaviorandbythefnancialmedia
that is starving for sensationalistic content.
As an independent investment advisor, Jack Calhoun has spent
much of the past 15 years educating investors about the dangers
of these mistaken ideas. In The 12 Investment Myths, he explores
and debunks these myths one-by-one and in the process sets in-
vestors on a path to harness the tremendous wealth-creation ma-
chine that is the stock market.
Jack J. Calhoun, Jr. is the Managing Principal of Capital Direc-
tions, LLC, one of Atlanta’s largest independent investment ad-

MARKETING IN THE NEW
MEDIA- 2ND EDITION
numbers 101 For smAll business
HOLLY BERKLEY
Marketing in the New Media, 2nd edition, shows business owners
and marketing professionals how to combine traditional adver-
tising with Internet and mobile marketing to deliver an effective
marketing message anytime, anywhere.
Companies today can no longer ignore incorporating elements of
new media in their marketing campaigns. Combining new media
is absolutely essential to “close the sale” and get the consumer to
take action in a measurable way.
Many small-business owners and marketing professionals are en-
tering into new, unfamiliar territory and the thought of stepping
out of their comfort zones and diving into the fast-moving world
of new media marketing is intimidating. This book explains mar-
keting with the new media in easy-to-understand terms.
This second edition includes more information on social network-
ing. Marketing in the New Media also outlines the elements of suc-
cessfulwebsitedesignandhowtoanalyzewebtraffcreportsand
online customer behaviors on a deeper level, so readers can make
informed decisions about how their campaigns are performing
and how customers are responding.
Holly Berkley is a website producer and Internet marketing con-
sultant with more than 10 years experience. Her Internet market-
ing company recently merged with a top hosting and technology
company to form Vantage Internet Services, Inc., where Holly is
now the CEO and Director of Internet Marketing.

WRITING FOR THE WEB
Fourth edition
CRAWFORD KILIAN
Hundreds of books have appeared on how to design new web
pages and jazz up existing websites with graphics, animation and
sounds. But creating an effective website has much more to do
with engaging text that people will want to read. This is what
draws people to websites and ultimately keeps them coming
back.
This fourth edition of Writing for the Web includes chapters on
blogs and other personal sites, portfolio sites and corporate
webwriting. It also includes a CD-ROM with reference sites for
webwriters and writing/editing exercises. This new edition is the
complete solution for anyone wishing to write persuasive and in-
teresting web content that will draw readers to a website and en-
gage them enough that they will add the site to their bookmarks
fle.
Writing for the Web will not teach you how to code in HTML or
Java. Instead, it offers sound principles that web writers need to
know, as well as exercises to strengthen writing skills and elimi-
nate poor writing habits.
Crawford Kilian has been teaching and writing online since the
1980s. He has twice served as Writer in Electronic Residence for
York University and is chair of the Media Technology Division
of Capilano Community College, where he teaches students how
to write for the web. Kilian is a regular freelance contributor to
electronic media and the author of 20 books.

time, the future never looked better.

and high-pressure positions, William “Bob” Bailey and Anna, his
wife of over 50 years, now reside full-time in Las Vegas.

THE MARKETING OF EVIL
hoW rAdicAls, elitists, And pseudo-experts
sell us corruption disguised As Freedom
DAVID KUPELIAN
Americans have come to tolerate, embrace and even champion
many things that would have horrifed their parents’ genera-
tion—from easy divorce and unrestricted abortion-on-demand
to extreme body piercing and teaching homosexuality to grade-
schoolers. Does that mean today’s Americans are inherently more
morally confused and depraved than previous generations? No,
but they have fallen victim to some of the most stunningly bril-
liant and compelling marketing campaigns in modern history.
The Marketing of Evil reveals how much of what Americans once
almost universally abhorred has been packaged, perfumed, gift-
wrapped and sold to them as though it had great value. Highly
skilled marketers, playing on our deeply felt national values of
fairness, generosity and tolerance, have persuaded us to embrace
as enlightened and noble that which all previous generations
since America’s founding regarded as grossly self-destructive—
in a word, evil.
David Kupelian is managing editor of WorldNetDaily.com, a
widely read online columnist and the driving force behind the ac-
claimed monthly news magazine Whistleblower. After serving as
managing editor of the news analysis magazine New Dimensions,
Kupelian became co-founder and creative director of TriMedia
Communications, established to help values-oriented organiza-
tions present their messages effectively.
TAKING AMERICA BACK
A rAdicAl plAn to revive Freedom,
morAlity, And Justice
JOSEPH FARAH
According to Joseph Farah, Americans are faced with an unre-
sponsive and unaccountable one-party political system, an estab-
lishment propaganda machine posing as a free press and cultural
institutions—educational, charitable, entertainment, religious,
medical and others—seduced by the materialist gods of an all-
powerful secular state. Even more important, the crisis this rep-
resents cannot be resolved through the political system by elect-
ingnewpoliticianstooffce.Amuchmoreprofound,long-term,
and fundamental shift is needed, one that rejects the validity of
the all-powerful, all-knowing, all-controlling state and affrms
the values upon which the American nation was founded.Taking
America Back is about freedom, the freedom the founding genera-
tion of leaders fought for in establishing the United States.
A decade ago, journalist Joseph Farah founded WorldNetDaily.
com and became a pioneer on the New Media frontier. Today,
WND is the largest independent news service on the Internet. Jo-
seph is the author of several books, including Stop the Presses
and Taking America Back and is a welcome guest on leading TV
and radio talk shows.
