Finding North: How Navigation Makes Us Human

Finding North: How Navigation Makes Us Human by George Michelsen Foy

Navigation is the key human skill. It's something we do everywhere, whether feeling our way through a bedroom in the dark, or charting a ship's course. But how does navigation affect our brains, our memory, ourselves? Blending scientific research and memoir, and written in beautiful prose, Finding North starts with a quest by the author to understand this most basic of human skills---and why it's in mortal peril.

In 1844, Foy's great-great grandfather, captain of a Norwegian cargo ship, perished at sea after getting lost in a snowstorm. Foy decides to unravel the mystery surrounding Halvor Michelsen's...

Continental Divide: A History of American Mountaineering

Continental Divide: A History of American Mountaineering by Maurice Isserman

This magesterial and thrilling history argues that the story of American mountaineering is the story of America itself.

In Continental Divide, Maurice Isserman tells the history of American mountaineering through four centuries of landmark climbs and first ascents. Mountains were originally seen as obstacles to civilization; over time they came to be viewed as places of redemption and renewal. The White Mountains stirred the transcendentalists; the Rockies and Sierras pulled explorers westward toward Manifest Destiny; Yosemite inspired the early environmental conservationists.

Into a Raging Sea: My Life and the Pendleton Rescue

Into a Raging Sea: My Life and the Pendleton Rescue by Bernie WebberMost people familiar with the name Bernie Webber associate him with the miraculous rescue of 32 men off of the stern of the Pendleton, made famous in the book and movie The Finest Hours. Rescuing 32 sailors from a sinking ship caught in a ferocious winter storm is a dramatic tale, but what made this mission so special is that the boat Bernie skippered that terrible night was a mere 36 feet in length and the waves were almost twice that size! Bernie and crew received the Coast Guard??s coveted Gold Lifesaving Medal, and what they did on that stormy night is regarded as the greatest small boat...

A Curious Life for a Lady: The Story of Isabella Bird

A Curious Life for a Lady: The Story of Isabella Bird by Pat Barr

Isabella Bird was a woman of remarkable gifts. In 1872, at the age of forty, this rather earnest daughter of a country parson abandoned the rectory nest and began her pioneering journeys to some of the most inhospitable corners of the world. Undismayed by discomfort or danger she was to spend almost thirty years travelling - to the Rocky Mountains, the Sandwich Isles, to Japan, Malaya, Kashmir and Tibet, to Persia, Korea and China - where an indomitable spirit, an unassuming cordiality and, above all, a limitless capacity for being interested won her universal welcome. Her accounts of her experiences...

Where's Frank? An Intrepid Leader, 18 Boy Scouts, 10,000 Miles in an Open Truck by Lloyd Philip Johnson

“Where??s Frank” piqued enthusiasm and high interest when first circulated as a short version to a group of interested people.

It started in Yakima, Washington 70 years ago and now includes the memories of the seven surviving Scouts.

Promise at Dawn by Romain Gary

A romantic, thrilling memoir that has become a French classic.

Promise at Dawn by Romain Gary (1914-80), a classic of modern French literature, has all the earmarks of a richly romantic novel.

After all, he was to be a French military hero, ambassador, noted writer, and ladies?? man . . . . Thus anticipating battle, by the time of...

The Mystery of John Colter: The Man Who Discovered Yellowstone

The Mystery of John Colter: The Man Who Discovered Yellowstone by Ronald M. Anglin & Larry E. MorrisFrom the first account of “Colter??s Run,” published in 1810, fascination with John Colter, one of America??s most famous and yet least known frontiersmen and discoverer of Yellowstone Park, has never waned. Unlike other legends of the era like Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, and Kit Carson, Colter has remained elusive because he left not a single letter, diary, or reminiscence. Gathering the available evidence and guiding readers through a labyrinth of hearsay, rumor, and myth, two Colter experts for the first time tell the whole story of Colter and his legend.
