A century ago, great flocks of waterfowl darkened the skies, and duck hunting had primarily one purpose: to put food on the table. It was an era when such carvers as Nathan Cobb, Elmer Crowell, and Harry V.N. Shourds created decoys, not for the sake of art, but simply to help harvest food. In Making Decoys, authors Grayson Chesser and Curtis Badger help you perpetuate the tradition started by these old-time carvers by teaching you to hand make the simple yet functional decoys of yesteryear. They provide detailed, step-by-step instructions, numerous color and black-and-white photographs, and the basic techniques necessary to make gunning decoys. This book is being published in conjunction with the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities.

Pacific Beach Through Time - 1979-2018 (Paperback): John Fry, Nancy Wingo Pacific Beach Through Time - 1979-2018 (Paperback)

Founded as a college community in 1887, Pacific Beach was a rural suburb of San Diego during the first part of the twentieth century. WWII brought a five-fold increase in its population and it became a community of family homes. In the latter part of the century those homes were increasingly replaced with apartment buildings, and the population changed to young people looking for "fun in the sun." That trend has only increased in this early part of this century. Old structures disappear on a daily basis, replaced with businesses catering to a younger crowd. Only a few homes survive from the town's earliest years and a handful of business buildings from the 1920s. Unlike the solid brick buildings in the East, structures in Pacific Beach change, and change, and change again. Color photos of "the old Pacific Beach" are a treat to young and old.

A certain mixture of whimsy and derring-do is required to shove off down (or up) the New River or Gauley with scant protection aside from a helmet, life vest and one's compatriots. It's a choice that could be so easily avoided, but that wouldn't make sense to the proud and colorful characters who've long been shooting these rapids, some of the most popular and treacherous in the country. Here, Jay Young, a rafting guide turned writer, leads readers through the local lore and history of the rivers, where much to the delight of those brave enough to face these rapids the ordinary almost never occurs.

Like the instant classic "The Last American Man, Fearless" is the story of a remarkable individual who accepts no personal limits--including fear. Freya Hoffmeister, a forty-six-year-old former sky diver, gymnast, marksman, and Miss Germany contestant, left her twelve-year-old son behind to paddle alone and unsupported around Australia--a year-long adventure that virtually every expert guaranteed would get her killed. She planned not only to survive the 9,420-mile trip through huge, shark-infested seas, but to do it faster than the only other paddler who did it.
As journalist and expert kayaker Joe Glickman details the voyage of this Teutonic force of nature, he captures interminable days on the water and nights camped out on deserted islands; hair-raising encounters with crocs and great white sharks; and the daring 300-mile open-ocean crossing that shaved three weeks off her trip. For 332 days Glickman followed Freya's journey on her blog--along with a far-flung audience of awestruck, even lovesick, groupies--as she took on one terrifying ordeal after the next. In the end, he says, "her vanity and pigheadedness paled next to her nearly superhuman ability to master fear and persevere."

This is a new edition of Greg Louganis's 1995 #1 New York Times bestselling autobiography and Literary Guild Selection. It is the unflinchingly honest first-person account of a man breaking free of a lifetime of silence and isolation.
Born to a young Samoan father and Northern European mother, and adopted at nine months, Greg began diving at age nine, and at sixteen won a silver medal at the 1976 Montreal Olympics. But despite his astonishing athletic skill, Greg struggled with late-detected dyslexia, prejudice toward his dark skin coloring and anguish over his homosexuality, which he felt compelled to hide. Being in the spotlight intensified his difficulties with relationships and substance abuse.
However, Louganis went on to win double gold medals at the 1984 and 1988 Olympics. His triumph at the 1988 Olympics came several months after he tested positive for HIV. This is the haunting, searingly candid story of the world's greatest diver. This new edition includes a new foreword.
