The Hiking Engine

The Hiking Engine
Stuart Plotkin, DPM


    Shows hikers how to care for their feet and legs so that debilitating injuries will not ruin the outdoor experience. Contains tips on evaluating equipment, stretching and strengthening exercise, as well as extensive first aid section. Whether on a day-hike jaunt or a three-month trek, many people take their feet and legs for granted - until they start to break down. Like any good mechanic will tell you, most problems result not from accidents, but rather from ignorance or lack of prevention.

    The proper care and feeding of your lower limbs can help avoid injury, increase stamina, and generally make hiking a lot more fun. In The Hiking Engine, you'll find invaluable guidance on picking out socks and shoes, performing pre-hike stretches, and learning how your personal biomechanics really work. Extensive first aid advice covers everything from blisters to bunions, tendonitis to ingrown toenails, sprains to heel spurs, and the kinds of injuries that can befall even the best-prepared trail tromper. The most in-depth book ever on the hiker's feet and legs, The Hiking Engine will keep you on your feet and on your way.

The New Appalachian Trail

The New Appalachian Trail
Edward B. Garvey


    More than a quarter century ago Ed Garvey drew public attention to the wonders and precariousness of the Appalachian Trail with his much publicized thru-hike, so memorably documented in his Appalachian Hiker books. Twenty years later, at the age of seventy-five, he once again began the long trek northward, to rediscover a trail that had changed significantly in the intervening years.

    The New Appalachian Trail is both the story of his journey and a practical guide to backpacking on the AT. It is also a tribute to the unprecedented cooperative effort of government and volunteers to secure and maintain this extraordinary national treasure.

The No-Drop Zone

The No-Drop Zone
Patrick Brady


   The No-Drop Zone covers all the information necessary for a new cyclist to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to take them from buying their first bicycle to starting their first race. Cyclists will learn how to handle the bike, perform minor maintenance, select clothing and accessories, join clubs, and find events.

    Anyone can buy a road bike and go out and ride it, but to ride in a group, one needs specific skills from being able to avoid bumping into other riders when riding in close quarters to fixing a flat quickly enough to rejoin the group. Why would a competent adult want to ride in close quarters with other cyclists? Because riding in the group may be as close to flying in a flock of birds as a person may come. The experience is at once social (imagine being able to talk to a friend as you ride), exciting (descending in a group is a thrill), and exhilarating (finishing a long hill gives the rider a huge sense of accomplishment). Also, the fitness benefits of riding in a group are enormous.

    From a discussion about the bicycle and its components to skills, nutrition, and training, The No-Drop Zone has all the knowledge a cyclist needs to move to that next level of skill.

Traveler's Tool Kit: Mexico and Central America
Rob Sangster and Tim Leffel


    Traveler's Tool Kit: Mexico and Central America shows you how to find delicious, affordable meals anywhere in Mexico and Central America, not just where to eat in Cuernavaca. Instead of rating Panama City's "best" hotels (usually meaning the most expensive), this book shows you how to locate comfortable, affordable lodging anywhere.  Traveler's Tool Kit does the same for everything from dining to entertainment to sightseeing in Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Belize, Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. Individual sections cover it all: drafting itineraries, calculating costs, eco-sensitive travel, unusual tours, managing money, staying healthy, woman-alone travel, and much more.

    You'll learn how to travel happily by air, bus, and all sorts of local transport, negotiate successfully with cab drivers and merchants, and dramatically cut the costs of travel. You will be convinced you can afford to travel—and that you can't afford not to. This book shows you ways to save money without hindering the quality of your trip.

    Rob Sangster and Tim Leffel are not typical travelers, nor is this a typical travel guide. Sangster and Leffel show how to connect with a network of travelers who've discovered the most enjoyable things to do and can provide guidance on how much to pay for them. The book also tells how to memorialize the adventure through photography and blogging, and even how to earn money from the trip after returning home. Sangster and Leffel are both authoritative and encouraging, drawing on years of experience to help travelers maximize the fun, savings, and security without compromising quality.
