      Description
      When Yellowstone National Park was founded on March 1, 1872, it became not only the first national park in the country, it was the first such entity in the world. Over the next 140 years, additional parks were added from coast to coast as a direct result of citizen voices demanding that special places to be preserved for everyday Americans and visitors from around the world. In the words of writer and historian Wallace Stegner, the national parks are “the best idea we ever had. Absolutely American, absolutely democratic, they reflect us at our best rather than our worst.” In this book, each of the system’s 59 parks are explored through dynamic photos that reveal the landscape, plants, animals, and history that make them unique—along with the challenges scientists and rangers face in preserving these pristine wild spaces for generations to come.

      Description

      Salvador Dalí once asked room service at Hôtel Le Meurice in Paris to send him up a flock of sheep. When they were duly brought to his room he got out a gun and fired blanks at them. George Bernard Shaw tried to learn the tango at Reid’s Palace in Madeira, and the details of India’s independence were worked out in the ballroom of the Imperial Hotel, Delhi.

      The great hotels have provided glamorous backgrounds for some of the most momentous - and most bizarre - events of world history.

      Adrian Mourby is a distinguished hotel historian and travel journalist - and a lover of great hotels. Here he tells the stories of 50 of the world’s most magnificent, among them the Adlon in Berlin, the Cipriani in Venice, the Intercontinental in Saigon, Raffles in Singapore, the Dorchester in London, Hotel Kamp in Helsinki, the Pera Palace in Istanbul – and, a personal favourite, the Art Deco Midland in Morecambe Bay.

      All human life is to be found in a great hotel, only in a more entertaining form.
      Bio

      Adrian Mourby was an award-winning BBC drama producer before turning to full-time writing. He has published three novels, two AA travel guides and a book of humor based on his Sony Award-winning Radio 4 series Whatever Happened To? In recent years Adrian has won two Italian awards for his travel journalism. He also writes extensively on opera and has produced operas by Mozart, Handel and Purcell, both in the UK and in Europe.

She wroteThe China Option: A Guide for Millennials: How to work, play, and find success in China to give Millennials a path to explore their future the way she explored her own in China. The book covers a wide range of topics from the concept of “face” to coffee culture to racism to love to LGBT issues, as well as all of the practicalities readers need to know to get in and get a job.The China Option is a manifesto for recent college grads to take control of paying off debt while living a stimulating, adventurous life and to pave a way for a successful future.

The China Option explores her experiences in China over the following two years as she learned to maneuver around Asia, went through various jobs in Beijing, anddiscovered the rich rewards China offers those willing to take the plunge. Her work experience in China ranged from teaching at China's top-ranked Tsinghua University to working for a drone company to judging a talent show on China's national broadcasting channel.

    The Animal One Thousand Miles Long Seven Lengths of Vermont and Other Adventures Leath Tonino
    9781595348586 Paperback TRAVEL / Essays & Travelogues On Sale Date: October 10, 2018
    $26.95 CAD 5 x 8 x 0.61 in | 224 pages Carton Quantity: 32 Canadian Rights: Y Trinity University Press
    • Marketing Copy

      Description

      The phrase “an animal a thousand miles miles long,” attributed to Aristotle, refers to a sprawling body that cannot be seen in its entirety from a single angle, a thing too vast and complicated to be knowable as a whole.

      For Leath Tonino, the animal a thousand miles long is the landscape of his native Vermont. Tonino grew up along the shores of Lake Champlain, situated between Vermont’s Green Mountains and New York’s Adirondacks. His career as a nature and travel writer has taken him across the country, but he always turns his eye back on his home state. “All along,” he writes, “I’ve been exploring various parts of the animal, trying to make a prose map of its body—not to understand it in a conclusive or definitive way but rather to celebrate it, to hint at its possibilities.”

      This fragmented yet deep search is the overarching theme of the twenty essays inThe Animal One Thousand Miles Long. Tonino posits that geography, natural history, human experience, and local traditions, seasons, and especially atypical outings—on skis, bicycles, sleds, and boogie boards—can open us to a place and, simultaneously, open a place to us. He looks closely at what he calls "huge-small" Vermont, but his underlying mission is to demonstrate our collective need to better understand the meaning of place, especially the ones we call home and think we know best. From Laredo to Jackson Hole, SanFrancisco to Burlington, his sensibility is applicable to us all.

      In his signature piece, “Seven Lengths of Vermont,” he traverses the length of the state in seven different ways—a twenty-day hike, 500 miles on bicycle, a thirty-six-ride hitchhiking tour, 260 miles in a canoe, ten days swimming Lake Champlain, a three-week ski trek, and a two-hour “vast and fast” flyover. He plots each route with blue ink on maps strung across his office. “Each inky thread was an animal a thousand miles long,” he writes. “Vermont appeared before me as a menagerie.”

      What Bill Bryson'sA Walk in the Woods did for the Appalachian Trail and Peter Mayle'sA Year in Provence did for the South of France, Tonino's affinity for the land he calls home gives a new perspective on the Green Mountain State. His infectious love of the outdoors, the ground of everyday life, should inspire us to explore the places just outside our own front door.
      Bio
      Leath Toninio, a writer from Vermont, has also worked as a wildlife biologist in Arizona, a blueberry farmer in New Jersey, and a snow shoveler in Antarctica. His essays, reported stories, and interviews appear in magazines such asOutside, Men’s Journal, Orion, Tricycle, Utne Reader, andThe Sun. When not at his desk, he roams North America’s libraries and wildlands.

      REVIEWS

      “Anyone who loves Vermont will want this on her bookshelf—a funny, smart, and novel look at the Green Mountains.” — Bill McKibben, author ofRadio Free Vermont

      “InThe Animal One Thousand Miles Long, Leath Tonino draws a lyrical map for Vermont with a voice that is part scientist, part poet, part historian, and part adventurer. Tonino’s map shows us not the major cities and highest peaks but the lesser known places and ideas at the heart of Vermont—the abandoned towns, uncommon sports, and forgotten people.” — Sean Prentiss, author ofFinding Abbey

      "Leath Tonino brings the same verve to his writing as he does to the mountaineering, winter kayaking, and jack jumping chronicled in this vivid collection. His accounts of headlong adventures in the Champlain bioregion both dazzle a reader with their arresting descriptions and bubble with mirth. But Tonino’s greatest achievement may be conveying how the pursuit of ‘lostness’ in the wilds may offer an experience of home as deep as geology, as thrilling as a sky full of snow geese.” — John Elder, author ofReading the Mountains of Home andThe Frog Run

      “This engaging book of dispatches from field and forest shows us Vermont as we’ve never seen it before. Dispelling the notion of wilderness as a western phenomenon, Leath Tonino opens his native Green Mountain State to readers both near and far, revealing the beauty and diversity of this remarkable place. Tonino is the most companionable of trail companions, taking us along on adventures that include mountaineering, sledding, skating, and plenty more. The crescendo of this delightful journey is the extraordinary final chapter, in which the author roves the state from end to end on seven different routes by seven different modes of travel: hiking, hitchhiking, skiing, cycling, canoeing, swimming, and flying in a light aircraft. The result is a surprising, adventurous, openhearted exploration that fully delivers on what Tonino rightly calls the 'inexhaustibility of home.’" — Michael P. Branch, author ofRants from the Hill andHow to Cuss in Western

      Michelle Schoenung is an American journalist and translator in Milan who relocated to the Belpaese in 2000 for what was to be a yearlong adventure. Almost two decades later, she is pleased that Milan has evolved into a much more international and cosmopolitan city and has shed its image of merely being a foggy northern Italian business hub. Her writings and translations have appeared in magazines and books in the United States and Italy. In her free time, she likes to read, run, travel and explore the city with her two rambunctious Italian-American bambini. She resides in Milan, Italy.
