Mountain Bike!

Mountain Bike!
William Nealy


    At first glance, you may think that Nealy isn't serious about teaching riding skills. The hand-printed pages–colored with hilarious animations–give the guide a comic-book appearance. But instead of assaulting his readers with dry chapters on technique, Nealy leads his readers on an entertaining tour of the mountain-biking world and how to survive it.

    He explains how to bunny hop, how to downhill, how to ride powerfully, and how to crash with style. He also includes a "Stupid Bike Tricks" section. One trick, The Invisible Mountain Biker, explains how to jump off of your bike and let it glide, unmanned, across the path of frightened hikers. Note that Nealy advises against heaving your bike into a crowd of hikers. Existing laws prohibit it.

Whether you're an adrenaline seeking downhill bomber, or a gram-counting cross country racer, the Wide Grin guide will be your bible.

Myths and Truths about Coyotes

Myths and Truths about Coyotes
Carol Cartaino


    As in any area where little is known and much feared or suspected, bring up the subject of coyotes, and myths and half-truths fly. This book will deflate the myths and illuminate and share the truths. Once just a colorful supporting character of the Old West or children’s cartoons, coyotes are now real-life neighbors to just about every one of us. Every state in the US except Hawaii has them, and they slink around suburbs and cities as well as the countryside. Coyotes are too big to be cute and cuddly, and they remind us of the wolves we humans went to such trouble to exterminate or remove from our surroundings.

    Most of us have heard or read stories, or watched TV accounts, of coyote problems across the country, and many of us have listened to the chilling yips and howls of a coyote pack somewhere right beyond our sight. The spread of the intelligent, adaptable, and opportunistic coyote across America is perhaps the biggest wildlife success story of recent years—but not everyone is happy about it.

    Parents worry that their children may be attacked by a coyote in the backyard or nearby field. Pet owners know that their cats and dogs are likely to be. Hikers and other outdoors enthusiasts who encounter coyotes in the wilds wonder if they are at risk. Sheep and cattle farmers, and even fruit growers, are up in arms about losses to coyotes. Deer hunters fear that the rise of coyotes has meant a reduction in deer in many places. Wildlife experts have noted that where coyotes proliferate, the graceful and beautiful red and grey fox and other animals may be reduced or disappear. This book covers all the information you need to be in the know about our rather furry neighbors.

NOC Stories: Changing Lives at the Nantahala Outdoor center Since 1972

NOC Stories: Changing Lives at the Nantahala Outdoor center Since 1972



NOC Stories describes the Nantahala Outdoor Center’s first 25 years, a time of explosive growth in whitewater sports and instruction. NOC Stories by Payson Kennedy and Greg Hlavaty presents a history of the Nantahala Outdoor Center as seen through the eyes of early leaders and some of its dedicated staff. This history spans the years 1972-1997 and approaches the story of the NOC’s inception and growth in conjunction with the explosive growth of paddlesports and paddle instruction; in a very real sense, the great strides in paddle instruction and the growth of whitewater sports parallels the growth of the NOC. Many people today see the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) for what it has become: a seminal Southeastern paddling hub and profitable business. What they don’t know is that the NOC started with a semi-utopian vision, the idea that friends could work together at pursuits they were passionate about, and that this endeavor would not only be profitable for the company, but also life-changing for the individual. That’s not something many businesses can say, but in the case of NOC, it’s turned out to be true. If you asked current culture-makers and business owners in the whitewater industry about their formative years, you’d find many were previous staff members, clinic participants, and visitors at the NOC. You’d likely also hear that the NOC was instrumental in refining their skillset and in inspiring them to become pioneers in their field. From rafting to river rescue, paddling instruction to Olympic competition, the one thing this diverse group has in common is the NOC. These people are the stories that have become the NOC’s legacy, and this book is an attempt to collect and make sense of them. But the book also features a very human element, a tinge of adventure that sets it apart from your standard history text. The stories in this book, in addition to their historical value, offer a testament to the experiential aspect of working at the NOC, that ineffable change that has affected so many staff and that forms the basis for outdoor adventure programs. The NOC was, and is, a dream; these are the stories of its dreamers.

    Pacific Coast Tree Finder: A Pocket Manual for Identifying Pacific Coast Trees



    The classic key to identifying native trees of the Pacific Coast, updated to reflect changes in the names of trees since publication of the first edition. Identifies native trees, and some widely introduced or naturalized species, of the Pacific Coast region, from British Columbia to Baja California. In this edition, Latin names of trees that grow in California conform to the University of California's 1993 Jepson Manual, and more recent name changes. From the Finders series of pocket guides to native plants and animals of the U.S. and Canada; like all plant guides in the series, this book uses a dichotomous key format for accurate identification.
