Beyond the Horizon

Beyond the Horizon
Colin and Julie Angus

Colin Angus began his quest to circumnavigate the Earth under his own power in Canada in June 2004. His 720-day journey took him through Alaska, across the Bering Sea, through Europe from Moscow to Portugal, across the Atlantic to Costa Rica, and then back to Vancouver. While facing the relentless cold of the Siberian winter, Angus battled an even greater danger—the steadily mounting rift between himself and expedition partner Tim. Ending the fateful pairing mid-Russia, Angus plowed forward now competing with his friend-turned-foe to be the first to finish a human-powered journey around the globe.

Without skipping a beat, Angus’s fortunes turned golden when his fiancée (and now wife) Julie Wafaei agreed to complete the journey with him. Together they rowed through the fiercest hurricane season of modern history, narrowly escaping death, arriving shaken and stirred, but alive in the Costa Rican port of Limon, where they began the long final push toward home. With a powerful message of energy conservation paired with a thirst for life, Beyond the Horizon is a non-stop feast of wow and wonder that packs a flurry of punches page after page.

On the Appalachian Trail: A Postcard Book

Evan L. Balkan

    If clinging to a sinking makeshift raft while fighting off sword wielding and delirious mutineers desperate to wrench the last cask of water from your sun-scorched hands and arms—as sharks circle in anticipation—is your armchair cup of tea, then Shipwrecked: Deadly Adventures and Disasters at Sea is your next read. An extraordinary collection of human suffering at the hands of cruel oceans, cruel captains, and cruel fate, this latest collection of impeccably researched true adventure by Evan Balkan details the astonishing facts of 14 extraordinary maritime disasters spanning the 17th through 20th centuries. Laced with detail, Balkan's seaworthy narratives redefine the limits of desperation, courage, and the human will to survive in the face of death, or worse.

    Included are such legendary stories as the 1629 maiden voyage of the Batavia that ended in mutiny and murder, and the dramatic destruction of the majestic three-masted barquentine Endurance in ice-clogged Antarctic waters in 1912. A vast spectrum of human emotion and activity is featured in these exciting profiles, from deadly incompetence and brutish cannibalism to surprising self-sacrifice and quiet heroism.
