Through Our Unknown Southwest By Agnes C. Laut
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Excerpt You have not ridden far towards the ranger's house in the Forest before you become aware that clothing for town is not clothing for the wilds. No matter how hot it may be at midday, in this... More > high, rare air a chill comes soon as the sun begins to sink. To be comfortable, light flannels must be worn next the skin, with an extra heavy coat available--never farther away from yourself than the pack straps. Night may overtake you on a hard trail. Long as you have an extra heavy coat and a box of matches, night does not matter. You are safer benighted in the wilds than in New York or Chicago. If you have camp fire and blanket, night in the wilds knows nothing of the satyr-faced spirit of evil, sand-bagger and yeggman, that stalks the town. [Illustration: The forest-ranger in action, fighting a ground fire with his saddle blanket in one of the National Forests of the West]< Less

Gerry Roach answers the question Why Everest by tracing the mountaineering history of the Earth’s highest peak through the pioneering period, which he brings forward to 1983. Everest is a... More > pyramid with three major faces separated by three major ridges, and the last of these, the elusive East Face, was finally climbed in 1983. This pioneering period also saw other notable mountaineering landmarks such as the first ascent without supplemental oxygen, the first winter ascent, and the first solo ascent. Gerry has included every expedition that set foot on Everest through 1983. Gerry has tried to be an impartial reporter of facts, but his opinions do creep in. As for the question itself, Why Everest, some may find the answer in these pages and some may not. Some will be saddened by all the deaths, set the history aside, and dismiss Everest as an avoidable beast. Some may be moved by the opportunity for finding joy on this rock, and head up there at speed.< Less

Love and Other Diversions By Daniel Lambert
eBook (PDF): $4.99
Horror filmmaker and author Adam Barnick has this to say about Daniel Lambert's first poetry and prose collection: "Mr. Lambert successfully switches genres, themes, and structure with an... More > enlightened ease that towers over most writers' tendencies to fixate with one idea or theme. Yet nothing feels unfocused, dispersed, or dishonest. He touches on love, of course; regret, respect, and reverence for the past; finding the beauty in all things; sensing the darkness inside as well as beyond man. He even has time to throw in some much-needed political incorrectness, clever rhymes that are polar opposites of the Hallmark standard, and some sly humor. I am definitely on the mailing list for volume II." Lambert's fiction, articles, reviews and poems appear in such publications as Easy Reader, Torrance People, Other Worlds, Wrapped In Plastic, The Gamer, Autoduel Quarterly, and Games Unplugged. His writings appear in the anthologies Faces of Love, Tales on the Twisted Side and The Manuscripter Volume II.< Less
