Then, 10 lessons for intermediate skiers continue work on the diagonal stride as well as improving hill climbing and descending techniques, stops, speed control, and maneuverability.

Finally, 10 advanced lessons help your skiers achieve a diagonal stride that is rhythmic and continuous even over hillier and longer trails. In addition to refining their diagonal stride technique, your skiers will have fun learning the stem christie, traversing steeper hills, and edging.

Chicken Coop Revisited

In 1932, at age four, Alice moved with her family of five in the dilapidated house on the hill, above the creek bed where hobos, weary of riding the rails looking for work, often camped. The front yard had not a blade of grass and was riddled with gopher holes like the top of a salt or pepper shaker. In the upcoming years, the United States teetered on whether to enter the war already begun in Europe. Alice chronicles the vicissitudes of The Great Depression and perilous war years, while she and her family coped with the challenges of living their ordinary lives. The author brings warmth and humor as she relates wildly off-beat and entertaining incidents that lift the spirit with the joys of living, no matter the clouds of history.

My Miracle on Mount Shasta

What would you do if you were lost in a 2 million-acre mountain wilderness, with no map, no trails, no water, and no way of finding your way home? What would you do if you felt these were your last days alive on Earth and had no one to complete your life with? How would you keep your hope alive and your will to survive strong when your options have run out? How would your relationship with God change if He was the only one you could connect to? These are some of the questions that went through author Blaine Carman's mind as he spent seventeen hours trying to navigate his way back to civilization, after becoming separated from his climbing party on Mt. Shasta, the highest mountain in the contiguous United States. A true story, "My Miracle on Mount Shasta" takes the reader on a personal journey of the physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges that happen when you believe that these might be your last days on Earth. More than just a survival story, "My Miracle on Mount Shasta" addresses the question of what part our individual will really plays, versus surrendering to a greater destiny, in determining what happens with our lives.

Pet Sematary

Now a major motion picture! Stephen King’s #1 New York Times bestseller is a “wild, powerful, disturbing” (The Washington Post Book World) classic about evil that exists far beyond the grave—among King’s most iconic and frightening novels. When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Despite Ludlow’s tranquility, an undercurrent of danger exists here. Those trucks on the road outside the Creed’s beautiful old home travel by just a little too quickly, for one thing…as is evidenced by the makeshift graveyard in the nearby woods where generations of children have buried their beloved pets. Then there are the warnings to Louis both real and from the depths of his nightmares that he should not venture beyond the borders of this little graveyard where another burial ground lures with seductive promises and ungodly temptations. A blood-chilling truth is hidden there—one more terrifying than death itself, and hideously more powerful. As Louis is about to discover for himself sometimes, dead is better…

Tar Heel Ghosts

And if necessary he'd settle some scores before he left those particular hills. And then one December day, in the late afternoon before that quick, sure darkness clamps down on the mountains, the revenuers came to Jim's still.

Tar Heel Ghosts

An amazing assortment of twenty-three stories and ten "short shorts" comprise this popular selection. More than merely entertaining, Tar Heel Ghosts captures the "spirit" of North Carolina's past. North Carolina's ghost stories have infinite variety. There are mountainous ghosts and seafaring ghosts; colonial ghosts and modern ghosts; gentle ghosts and roistering ghosts; delicate lady ghosts and fishwife ghosts; home ghosts and ghosts that just want to be noticed. Mysterious signs and symbols appear--small black crosses, galloping white horses, strangely moving lights, floating veils, lifelike apparitions, skulls, dripping blood, and "things that go bump in the night." At least one North Carolina ghost got himself into a court record, and other ghostly phenomena have attracted scientific investigation. These stories have a marked realistic North Carolina flavor. The reader finds mountain cabins and antebellum mansions, Indian trails, water wheels, river steamboats, railroad trains, slave labor on plantations, revenuers and stills in the mountains, a burial in St. James Churchyard in Wilmington, Winston-Salem before the days of Winston, Raleigh in the 1860s, Fayetteville during World War II, and even a new suburb haunted by old spooks.

Two Kinds of Time

Graham Peck (1914-1968) made his first trip to China in 1935 and served with the U.S. Office of War Information in China throughout the 1940s. His memoir, Two Kinds of Time, first published in 1950, is witty and eloquent in both its words and the drawings with which it is lovingly illustrated. Long out of print in its unabridged version, this engagingly written eye-witness narrative of China on the eve of revolution remains an important source of historical and political information. Robert A. Kapp's new Introduction analyzes the book's original contribution and highlights its relevance to issues in the twenty-first century world.

The 30th North Carolina Infantry in the Civil War

At the outbreak of the Civil War, the men of the 30th North Carolina rushed to join the regiment, proclaiming, “we will whip the Yankees, or give them a right to a small part of our soil—say 2 feet by 6 feet.” Once the Tar Heels experienced combat, their attitudes changed. One rifleman recorded: “We came to a Yankee field hospital ... we moved piles of arms, feet, hands.” By 1865, the unit’s survivors reflected on their experiences, wondering “when and if I return home—will I be able to fit in?” Drawing on letters, journals, memoirs and personnel records, this history follows the civilian-soldiers from their mustering-in to the war’s final moments at Appomattox. The 30th North Carolina had the distinction of firing at Abraham Lincoln on July 12, 1864, as the president stood upon the ramparts of Ft. Stevens outside Washington, D.C., and firing the last regimental volley before the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia.

British Soldiers of the Korean War

More than 100,000 British troops fought in Korea between 1950 and 1953, of which just over 1,000 died, with a further 1000 being captured and held in atrocious conditions by the Chinese or Koreans. At least half of those captured died in prison camps. More than 70 per cent of those who fought were teenagers doing national service. They were poorly trained and ill-equipped. This book tells the story of these men in their own words. Most of the veterans are now in their eighties and there is a pressing need for them to tell their tale. So soon after the Second World War, this was a war Britain did not need but she remained steadfast by the side of the Americans, fighting more than 6,000 miles away in a country nobody could point to on a map. Yet while we remember those conflicts in the Falklands, Iraq and Afghanistan, the Korean War remains largely forgotten

The Stone Giant

Third in the Balumnia Trilogy from the author of The Elfin Ship and The Disappearing Dwarf, “a singular American fabulist” (William Gibson, author of Neuromancer). Jonathan Bing wasn’t the first citizen of Twombly Town to have a run-in with Selznak the Dwarf. Meet the young Theophile Escargot, aggrieved former citizen of Twombly Town. Divorced, exiled, and humiliated—all for the crime of eating his own pie—he sets off down the Oriel River in search of a fetching barmaid, only to find himself traveling by submarine into fabled Balumnia, where is he is beset on all sides by an evil dwarf, a piratical elf, a stone giant, and an unlucky bag of marbles. With a little help, Escargot must rescue his true love, save the elves, and—most importantly—redeem his dignity. Revisit the world of The Elfin Ship and The Disappearing Dwarf, and discover where the adventures began. “Blaylock crafted a story of engaging characters, cozy settings, and goofy adventures. Escargot is one of the most likable and ridiculous rogues in fantasy. His evolution from layabout and pie-thief to actual hero is terrific.” —Black Gate Praise for the Balumnia Trilogy “A magical world, magically presented . . . Having journeyed there, you will not wish to leave, nor ever to forget.” —Philip K. Dick, Hugo Award–winning author of The Man in the High Castle
