Explanation of the Book:

Whether navigating the backroads of Louisiana or Thuringia, exploring the snowy Quebec woods, or performing onstage at Rush concerts, Neil Peart has stories to tell. His first volume in this series, Far and Away, combined words and images to form an intimate, insightful narrative that won many readers. Now Far and Near brings together reflections from another three years of an artist’s life as he celebrates seasons, landscapes, and characters, travels roads and trails, receives honors, climbs mountains, composes and performs music. With passionate insight, wry humor, and an adventurous spirit, once again Peart offers a collection of open letters that take readers on the road, behind the scenes, and into the inner workings of an ever-inquisitive mind. These popular stories, originally posted on Peart’s website, are now collected and contextualized with a new introduction and conclusion in this beautifully designed collector’s volume.

Editor: iUniverse
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Like the poets Henry David Thoreau and St. Francis, Fritz Jaensch profoundly believes the natural and spiritual worlds are intertwined. In his first collection of lyrical verse, Jaensch blends details of the small creatures that hide in the woods as they grapple with the meaning and practice of truth in their own world with the complexities that surround Gods world of the spirit. From the hawk, the owl, and the crows perched in the tall trees to Gods chosen vesselhis sonwho has come to earth to redeem the human soul, Jaensch leads others down a peaceful path, where warm sunshine heals pain and the Word of God brings comfort to the sick and weary. In this poignant volume of verse, a poet shares contemplative lyrics grounded in the natural world and infused with spirituality that offer faith, hope, and love to anyone searching for meaning in life. Fritzs poems combine the wonders of the natural world with the amazement of the spiritual world and remind me greatly of the works of Henry David Thoreau (Allen Sweet, PhD, adjunct professor of electrical engineering, Santa Clara University, Santa Clara, California).

Explanation of the Book:

New York Times bestselling author of Super Natural Every Day, Heidi Swanson shares 125 natural foods recipes along with photographs inspired by her travels both near (Northern California) and far (Italy, Morocco, France, India, and Japan). Equal parts recipe journal and photo album, Near & Far focuses on dishes inspired by Heidi Swanson's Northern California kitchen and her many international travels to diverse cities including Marrakech, Tokyo, Paris, Jaipur, Rome, Kyoto, Palermo, New Delhi, and more. In this deeply personal collection, Heidi turns to the series of dog-eared recipe journals she has kept for years--each filled with newspaper clippings, magazine scraps, photos, stamps, receipts, and sticky notes to chronicle details she wants to remember: a paprika-spiked tomato soup in Amsterdam, the pattern of an ancient Italian olive grove she passed on the way to the Bari airport, and the precise way an elderly Vietnamese woman carefully sliced broccoli stems in the back of a grocery in New Zealand. Vegetarian recipes such as Carrot and Sake Salad, Fennel Frond Orzo, Rye Buttermilk Cakes, Harissa Farro, Fresh Ginger Citrus Juice, and Brown Butter Tortelli make use of the healthy, whole foods ingredients and approachable techniques that Heidi's sizable fanbase has come to expect. And photographs taken on location around the world--as well as back home in Heidi's kitchen--reveal the places that inspire her warm and nourishing cooking.

**NEW YORK TIMES & USATODAY Bestselling Series** There’s optimistic. And there’s Jesse Walker. If he wasn’t so charming, his sunny disposition and incessant grin would get old. Fast. Falling in love with the broken girl who had at first seemed immune to anything resembling love was the best thing to happen to Jesse since the Walkers adopted him when he was five. As Jesse’s life continues at the ranch and Rowen begins making her mark in the Seattle art community, they wonder where the middle ground is. Or if there even is one. As push comes to shove, they’re forced to make choices neither are eager to make, and Jesse and Rowen have to face what their lives might look like without the other. Can two people with such tragic pasts and different presents expect a promising future together? Whatever the answer, they’ll need a lot more than love to make it. *Recommended for mature readers due to moderate content and language.*

Explanation of the Book:

“Things Near and Far” was is the second part of Arthur Machen's autobiography. The first part is contained in “Far Off Things” (1922) and the third in “The London Adventure” (1924). Arthur Machen (1863 – 1947) was a Welsh author and renowned mystic during the 1890s and early 20th century who garnered literary acclaim for his contributions to the supernatural, horror, and fantasy fiction genres. His seminal novella “The Great God Pan” (1890) has become a classic of horror fiction, with Stephen King describing it as one of the best horror stories ever written in the English language. Other notable fans of his gruesome tales include William Butler Yeats and Arthur Conan Doyle; and his work has been compared to that of Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde. “The Glorious Mystery” is not to be missed by those with an interest in the life and work of this seminal writer. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

Explanation of the Book:

From the glacial lakes of Patagonia to the safari camps of Zambia, Charles Gaines has traversed the globe in search of the elusive catch. Traveling by helicopter, kayak, ship or houseboat, on lakes, rivers, oceans and everglades, he has visited five continents and over 20 countries following his primary passion: fly-fishing. But, as with any epic quest, the adventure—made up of wild stories, salty characters, breathtaking settings and close calls—is often more rewarding than the slippery goal itself. In Have Fly Rod, Will Travel, Charles Gaines presents a collection of essays that each begin in pursuit of a fish, but ultimately wind through back roads, volcanic landscapes, game reserves and remote villages, taking the reader on expeditions that reach far beyond the bait and tackle. Along the way, he weaves in historical context, environmental concerns, and vividly detailed portraits of the fellow adventurers and guides who share his obsession for the sport. Tom McGuane calls Gaines’s writing “fresh, original and downright elegant.” John Rasmus, former editor-in-chief of National Geographic Adventure says “Gaines breaks your heart with his stories, his voice, and the rhythm and control in his prose…Charles Gaines captures the sport—and the passions it evokes—with a sense of adventure, grace, and magic.”
