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.

Just Passin' Thru

Just Passin' Thru
Winton Porter


    Deep in the Georgia woods, the vintage Mountain Crossings Store sets the stage for zany characters, comedy, and drama. Almost two thousand hikers each year attempt to walk the Appalachian Trail from south to north. Only one in ten will finish the trail’s 2,178 miles, but almost all of them—with the help of experience, courage, luck, or madness—will get as far as Mountain Crossings, the small outfitter shop that sits astride the trail outside of Blairsville, Georgia. And they will have dealings there with Winton Porter, the shop’s proprietor since 2001.

    In Just Passin’ Thru, his first book, Porter tells the story of this historic trading post and sketches some of the memorable souls who have passed through it—looking for gear or a place to sleep, coffee or gossip, souvenirs or advice—in the years of his tenure.

    These men and women are as varied as their reasons for walking. Some are wise and kind; some are depraved and dangerous. Some just hang out, and barely hang on. Many are gifted storytellers themselves. They may walk the trail without any special agenda or destination, because they have nowhere else to go. They may walk in brave inspiration, knowing each step may be their last. They offer tales of grand ambitions and shattered dreams. Of courage and kindness. Of mindless cruelty. Of those who have lost their minds only to rediscover them beneath the silent wilderness sky. They will arrive to you as strangers. Brought to life in Porter’s effortless prose, they will share their joy, their sorrow, and their wisdom. They will depart having touched your heart.

    The trade at Mountain Crossings is in more than food and equipment, and the people here are more to each other than buyers and sellers; they are neighbors in the wilderness, a family of wanderers and dreamers strung across a great American landscape. This book gives them their long-deserved family album. Hiking guide, memoir, story collection, and rogues’ gallery, Just Passin’ Thru is a report from a thriving example of old-fashioned American business. And it is, finally, the compelling self-portrait of a happy and grateful man, whose livelihood has been blessed by the bloom of life.

Backcountry Fishing

Backcountry Fishing
Johnny Molloy


    For many anglers, the lure of fishing is not always the fish, but the places where the fish are. Tossing a rod is just the excuse for heading into the back of beyond, to enjoy nature on nature's terms, to get past the parking lot to enter the backcountry.

     Whether going by foot or by self-propelled craft, such as a canoe or kayak, backcountry travel leads anglers from an auto accessible trailhead or put-in to a fishing destination they must reach on their own, without a car or motorboat. This is backcountry fishing. The simplest way is to get there by foot. Walking or hiking to the destination requires merely a body of water, whether it be a lake or stream.

     Outback travel by boat is a little more complicated. A canoe or kayak is needed. In this situation you will start at a put-in and if by river, travel downstream, maybe camping, maybe not, then ending at a take-out. Other times, you will start and end in the same place, especially when traveling lakes, or a series of lakes connected by portages. Many kayaking destinations will be in saltwater. Some backcountry boating destinations, whether they be fresh or salt, river, lake or ocean, will be shared by some motor boaters. This guide covers backcountry fishing, whether day tripping in a canoe, day hiking along a remote river, or going for a multi-day excursion.

     Whether fly fishing, spin fishing, or saltwater fishing, Backcountry Fishing has all the information needed to be best prepared for backcountry fishing excursions. * Equipment including repair and maintenance * Casting techniques * Types of boats, canoes, and kayaks * Backcountry campsites * List of fish including where to find and bait to use *Cooking in the backcountry *Safety To help get anglers started, a list of backcountry fishing destinations for each state is also included with hiking and paddling destinations. It covers the bodies of water to be fished, where the waters are, the fish to be caught, backcountry accesses, what maps will be helpful, what types of overnight camping possibilities while fishing, and a helpful Internet information link.

Best Tent Camping: Colorado, 5ed.
Kim Lipker and johnny Molloy


Your Car-Camping Guide to Scenic Beauty, the Sounds of Nature, and an Escape from Civilization

The Colorado landscape is rich with opportunities for tent camping. Millions of acres of public lands are dotted with hundreds of campgrounds—but you probably only have a precious amount of limited time. Which campgrounds do you choose? Where should you go? When should you go? That’s what this book is for—to help you make the wisest use of your time in the wilds of the Centennial State.

In the mountains of Colorado, the Rockies, camping is primarily a summertime activity. When the snow melts and the rivers run high—that’s when tent campers start longing for the crisp mornings, crystal-clear days, and cool nights by the campfire that are part of a Rocky Mountain camp out. Not to mention wilderness hiking, trout fishing, mountain biking, and whitewater boating.

In other parts of Colorado, the tent camping season is extended. You can pitch your tent year-round in the canyon country of the Western Slope, along the prairie lakes of the east, and in some of the lower elevation state parks. No matter where you go or when you go, the scenic beauty of Colorado will never fail to please the eye.

Before embarking on a trip, take some time to prepare. Many of the best tent campgrounds are at the far end of a gravel road. This isolation—part of their attraction for many campers—makes for a long supply or gear run if you are unprepared. Call ahead and ask for a park map, brochure, or other information to help you plan your trip. Make reservations wherever applicable, especially at popular state parks. Ask questions. Ask more questions. The more questions you ask, the fewer surprises you’ll get. There are other times, however, when you’ll grab your gear and this book, hop in the car, and just wing it. This can be an adventure in its own right.

Each campground has been rated on six criteria: beauty, privacy, spaciousness, quiet, security and cleanliness. In addition, campground profiles include vital statistics about each location (fees, restrictions, operating season, amenities, contact information, driving directions and reservation information, to name a few) that help campers plan the perfect trip without unwanted surprises. GPS users will also appreciate that each campground's precise latitude and longitude waypoints are included.

Tent campers will also enjoy a detailed map of each campground included in the site profile. Making reservations online or blindly over the phone can put a camper miles from the restroom, stranded with no shade, or in the middle of a busy campground trail. Maps will help campers avoid those pitfalls, and wherever possible the author has even recommended specific campsites for maximum privacy, spaciousness, or beauty.

Although there's never a shortage for things to do in Colorado's outdoors, campground summaries in the book also suggest attractions and activities near each campground. Fishing, hiking, biking, paddling, and scenic drives in the immediate area are recommended to ensure that campers know the basic lay of the land and have a jumping-off point to plan their trip.

Whether it's a large family looking to get away for the weekend, a scout troop that wants to try something new, or a serious outdoors enthusiast searching for a place to adventure for the day and crash for the night, Best Tent Camping: Colorado has done all the work in finding those special, out-of-the-way campgrounds, and gives campers the tools to plan an amazing, unforgettable camping trip.
