A Long Way From Nowhere: A Couple’s Journey on the Continental Divide Trail

by Julie Urbanski

What is it like to hike the length of the Continental Divide Trail? For Matt and Julie, also known as Optimist and Stopwatch, life on the trail meant twenty-seven days without seeing another hiker, six bears encountered within fifteen hours, two sets of maps, a GPS, and a compass to find the trail, and both wildfires and massive flooding to add to the adventure. Hiking the trail also meant a dramatic shift in perspective, a strengthening of love and friendship, and a redefining of the journey.

This is the story of the couple’s 3,000 mile walk on the Continental Divide Trail, through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. Both Optimist and Stopwatch play a role in narrating the story, revealing how differently they both think and act in the face of challenges but also how well they work together to complement each other.

Few people know about the Continental Divide Trail and even fewer have hiked the entire length of it, creating an air of mystery surrounding the trail. Optimist and Stopwatch explore the many layers of the trail life on the Continental Divide Trail as they make their way over desolate terrain, eventually finding solace in the very aspects of the trail that made them question their desire to ever take on such a challenge.

This unauthorized biography of Lebron James’s basketball career journey into what makes him one of the best to ever play the game. He is widely regarded as one of the biggest sports icons in the world and his name is recognized by almost any sports enthusiasts. From his unbelievable god given athletic ability, to his sportsmanship, character and leadership, Lebron is the type of player most dream to be.

A preview of what you will read.
* High School Journey ( Freshman through Senior Year )
* Stats of all his high school games
* Detailed info about his NBA Career, winning his first, second and third ring
* Endorsements and Earnings
* Off The Court
* Pictures of Lebron

An excerpt from the book:

With the first pick in the 2003 NBA draft the
Cleveland Cavaliers select Lebron James. Cleveland fans
would never forget those words. There was much
speculation whether or not Lebron would be the first pick in
the NBA draft. Lebron was happy to stay home and play
for his hometown team. His main focus would be to turn
the Cleveland franchise around and take them to the
NBA finals. It would be the start of an era that would
ignite the Quicken Loans arena for decades to come.

The endorsements, fans and critics came pouring
in his first season with the Cavs. In his very first game
against the Sacramento Kings, Lebron scored 25 points
and set a NBA record for the most points scored by
debut player. He was absolutely explosive in his first
game. The crowd loved to watch him because he played
the game with a tenacity and desire to win. Lebron went
on to average 20.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 5.9 assists
per game in his first season with the Cavaliers. He had a
season high of 41 points on 3/27/2004 against the New
Jersey Nets and it showed everyone that the kid from
Akron was here to stay and make his mark on the game.
It was no question that Lebron had talent, but would he
be able to turn the Cavaliers around? The Cavs ended
the season with a record of 35-47 and failed to make the
playoffs. Even though they failed to make the playoffs,
with Lebron on the roster, they had a massive 18 game
improvement from the previous year. It became
apparent that he was there to improve the dynamic of
the team and push everyone around him to perform

Birdwatching for Beginners: Your guide to getting started in a hobby that lasts a lifetime

by Calvin Jones

Birds are amazing. They’re exciting, they’re dynamic, they’re all around us.

All over the world people are discovering the joy of watching birds, and by extension the experiencing the benefits of getting outdoors and engaging with the natural world around them.

But if you’ve never been birdwatching before, where do you start?

That’s what we’ll explore in this little guide.

First a few caveats:

This is not a field guide or bird ID guide (although we will cover what to look for in a good beginners field guide), it’s not designed to help you put a name to the birds you see. Rather it’s a guide to the process of becoming a birder.

It’s also a short book — because the best way to become a better birder is to get out there and watch birds — not sit indoors reading about it. It purposely doesn’t go into immense detail: it covers the basics, offers you advice, hints and tips to get you started, and encourages you to get out and develop your birding skills in the field.

So what’s in the book?

* We’ll start by looking at the appeal of watching birds and what’s in it for us and, just as importantly, for the birds themselves.

* Then we’ll go on to explore the importance of getting to know your local birds: the usual suspects in your garden, your local park, your home patch.

* After that we’ll look at some of the birding equipment you’ll need — and some of the things you might want to invest in as your birding evolves.

* As you improve as a birder you’ll want to broaden your horizons, explore other birding locations at home and abroad, find new birds and meet other birders to share your adventure — so we’ll delve into some ways you can do that too.

Your lifelong birding adventure is about to begin. This little guide is the catalyst you need tot help you on your way.

About Calvin Jones

A Gentleman’s Game: Reflections on Cricket History Foreword by Kersi Meher-Homji

by Anindya Dutta

Spiro Zavos, former Kiwi cricketer and long time Sydney Morning Herald columnist writes in The Roar about ‘A Gentleman’s Game’:
“This is a cricket book full of great delights by an enthusiast who has an eye, like a master batsman, to make telling strokes to push his stories along. Writing a book, to my mind, is the equivalent in cricket of making a century. Anindya Dutta’s century, to continue this analogy, has been made in the first-class arena. Well played!”

Veteran Cricket journalist and Historian Kersi Meher-Homji’s says in his Foreword:
I enjoyed reading this well-illustrated and many-splendoured publication.The first Chapter is on “Ranjitsinhji, the Maharaja of Elegance and of Nawanagar”. My initial reaction was: what is there on Ranji a cricket-lover does not know about? But after reading Anindya’s book I learnt many things about Ranji I did not know. Some of it was not pleasant. In the beginning of his career there was a racist article on him written by Sir Home Gordon who called him “a dirty black”. And did you know Ranji faced bankruptcy and earlier on he had no right to call himself a Prince? The Chapter on Keith Miller – the supreme all-round cricket icon, a war hero, a classical music aficionado and a lovable character – starts with his immortal quote: “Pressure? There is no pressure in Test cricket. Real pressure is when you are flying a Mosquito with a Messerschmitt up your arse.” Apart from his heroics on the cricket field author Anindya depicts Miller’s courage and gallantry during World War II.

The book is not just about achievements. It details failures too: the worst declarations in history and on dropped catches by butterfingers. Also the mighty West Indies lost a match to Ireland. At one stage the Windies under Clive Lloyd were 8 for 6, 12 for 8 before being bowled out for 25. A misprint? A joke? No, it happened. I found the Chapter “A Tale of Two Test Debuts” nostalgic as I was present at the Sydney Cricket Ground when Australia’s Shane Warne and India’s Subroto Banerjee had made their Test debuts in January 1992. Medium-pacer Banerjee captured 3 for 47 including the scalps of Geoff Marsh, Mark Taylor and Mark Waugh. In contrast Warne had a forgettable debut, being smashed all over the park by Ravi Shastri and Sachin Tendulkar as he finished with 1 for 150. Warne became a Test legend with 708 wickets at 25.41 in 145 Tests. For Banerjee it was his Test debut and swan song as he was never selected in a Test again. To quote Anindya Dutta, “Bizarrely, the man who has bowled so well in the first innings, Subroto Banerjee, does not get to bowl a single ball in the second innings. In fact, he never gets to bowl another ball in Test cricket, and is destined to be forever referred to in cricketing history as a one-Test wonder.” Cricket cruel cricket!

Thus A Gentleman’s Game – Reflections on Cricket History shows many aspects of cricket; the good, the gallant and the paradoxical. I enjoyed reading it. So will you.
