Woking is a mixture of the very old and very new. What is now known as 'Old Woking' was mentioned in the Domesday Book but it now forms a suburb of Woking. The modern town grew up around the Basingstoke Canal and the railways that arrived in the nineteenth century, including a line from London to Brookwood cemetery built by the London Necropolis Company to accommodate the city's dead. Today Woking is one of the largest towns in Surrey and is known among other things as the landing place for the aliens in H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds, the country's oldest mosque (the Shah Jahan), McLaren Racing, the innovative Lightbox art and heritage centre built by the architects of the London Eye and the home town of the The Jam. A-Z of Woking delves into the history of this fascinating town, revealing interesting and significant moments in the story of Woking. It highlights well-known landmarks, famous residents and digs beneath the surface to uncover some of the lesser-known facts about Woking and its hidden gems. This A-Z tour of Woking's history is fully illustrated and will appeal to all those with an interest in this town in Surrey.

"The art of sailing, maneuvering, and preserving a ship or a boat in all positions and under all reasonable circumstances." With the addition of the words, "and some unreasonable circumstances, too," this definition of "seamanship" is as valid today as when the first edition of this book was published in 1983. The aim remains to advise you the sailor on essential gear, skills, and behavior that enhance your pleasure and safety.
This edition of "The Annapolis Book of Seamanship" is an extensive update. Much of the text is new or revised, and there are many new photos. Throughout, the book stresses the skills and attitudes that comprise what the author calls "The Seamanship Ethos." The first four chapters cover the boat, basic sailing skills, sail trim, and weather, with the first of many "Hands On" sections with their tips.
The topics of health (including seasickness) and on board safety follow, with lessons learned from on-water tests and studies of boating accidents. We look closely at the elements of piloting, navigation, and electronics, including Digital Selective Calling, the U.S. Coast Guard's emergency communication system.
Moving on to the arts of traditional seamanship-- anchoring, heavy weather, and emergencies--there is much on modern equipment and skills, again based on experience. The book ends with boat maintenance and the traditions that make sailing the beloved pastime it is. Appendixes include best practices for protecting the marine environment and bringing up children under sail.

Did you know that: - the thirteen colonies which became the USA were not the most valuable British possessions in America? - Georgia was not the thirteenth but the fourteenth British colony in North America? - despite the claims in the Declaration of Independence, George III was not a tyrant? Information on these facts, and many many more, can be found in this fascinating and helpful A-Z guide. Colonial America's key events and personalities - from the first expedition to Roanoke Island in 1584 to the conclusion of the War of Independence - are readily accessible in this invaluable dictionary. Mary K. Geiter and W. A. Speck set the thirteen colonies which became the United States in an Atlantic context, dealing not only with the thirteen but also with Britain's other colonies in North America and the West Indies. The imperial connection is stressed too with entries on British monarchs and politicians, admirals and generals, Acts of Parliament and European wars which impacted on the American colonies. Also featuring a Select Bibliography and full Chronology to aid learning, this wide-ranging, clear and authoritative text is an essential reference for students, scholars and anyone with an interest in British America.

A great companion to ME, Elton's official autobiography! Elton John is as big as they come... the albums * the songs * the concerts * the musicals * the charities * the accolades * the costumes * the glasses * the music! We can count on one hand the musical legends equal to Elton John (the Beatles and the Rolling Stones each get a finger). Elton John: Fifty Years On looks at the impact songwriting partners Elton John and Bernie Taupin have had on popular music and culture, and also discusses every song on all thirty albums, plus his work on Broadway, in movies, and elsewhere. Part 1 is a collection of essays and interviews with musicians and music writers chatting about Elton and Bernie. Part 2 is a bullet-pointed look at every released song, complete with insights, trivia, and meanings, including musical insights-like Elton's favorite chord progressions, or the most notable melodies in his discography. Did you know? Elton and Bernie's revision of "Candle in the Wind" (known as "Goodbye England's Rose"), a tribute to Princess Diana after her untimely death, is the biggest-selling single in the UK and the second-biggest selling single in music history (after Bing Crosby's "White Christmas"). "Tiny Dancer" may or may not be about Bernie Taupin's wife, Maxine...quotes from Elton and Bernie contradict each other. The biggest music stars in the world routinely show up at Elton John concerts to sing duets with the Rocket Man, including Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, George Michael, Bruce Hornsby, Lionel Richie, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Adams, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes, and many more, as well as Elton's legendary "dual" shows with Billy Joel! The background vocals for the song "White Powder White Lady" on the 21 at 33 album are sung by the Eagles. The background vocals for the song "Cage the Songbird" on the Blue Moves album are sung by Graham Nash and David Crosby. (Stephen Stills must have been busy?) Elton John: Fifty Years On was written for ultimate Elton John fans. A browsing book, a reading book, a treasure trove of facts, trivia, insights, and commentary, it's the perfect companion to Elton leaving the Yellow Brick Road.

The Roberts Bird Guide (2nd Edition) has gone to great trouble to concentrate on, and illustrate, difficult-to-identify species and family groups such as raptors, warblers, cisticolas and waders. Special attention has been given to make sure there is far greater coverage of male-female differences and there are also many more juvenile illustrations. Unlike all previously published southern African bird guides, this new edition will be scattered with informative photographs that are incorporated in the text pages and each plate illustration is augmented with an introduction. Apart from the approximately 240 plate spreads, the guide also has 12 photographic and illustrated double spreads that show head enlargements and other details. Plates are annotated far more definitively than other guides highlighting key identification features, especially for difficult-to-identify species.
