      Description
      An abridged edition of Alexandre Dumas's flamboyant tale of action and adventure in seventeenth-century France. It is 1625 and France is under threat. D'Artagnan, a young nobleman, sets off to Paris to seek his fortune as a member of the King's Guard and befriends three musketeers - the mysterious Athos, ambitious and romantic Aramis, and bumbling Porthos. Together the friends must use all their guile and ingenuity to outwit the dastardly schemes of Cardinal Richelieu and the glamorous spy, Milady. As fresh and entertaining today as when it was first written, Alexandre Dumas's classic is a gripping adventure story of daring sword fights, romances, espionage, and murder. This sensitively abridged Macmillan Collector's Library edition of The Three Musketeers features an afterword by Peter Harness. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
      Bio
      Alexandre Dumas was born in France in 1802, the son of the half-Creole aristocrat General Thomas-Alexandre Dumas. In early adulthood, he took work as a clerk, met the renowned actor Talma, and began to write short pieces for the theatre. Dumas later turned his hand to novel-writing, and penned such classics as The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. After enduring a short period of bankruptcy, Dumas began to travel extensively, still keeping up a prodigious output of journalism, short fiction, and novels. He had around forty mistresses in his lifetime and fathered at least four illegitimate children, including Alexandre Dumas fils, who later wrote La Dame aux Camélias. He died in Dieppe in 1870. Peter Harness is an English playwright, screenwriter and actor. He has contributed to programmes such as McMafia, Wallander, and Doctor Who, and was the head writer for the miniseries adaptation of Susanna Clarke's novel, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.

      “Aaron Foley possesses a preternatural ability to parse issues of race, class, urbanism, and pop culture in a complex and generous way that avoids tired orthodoxies and knee-jerk justifications but is always on the proper side of social justice.” —Vanity Fair
      "The picture Foley paints isn’t always pretty, but it’s always real. All readers — native Detroiters and new arrivals, citizens of America and residents of outer Mongolia — should thank him for telling it like it is. Isn’t that what all books are supposed to do?" —The Millions

      Description
      A valuable, thought-provoking look at the best ways riders and horses can learn and improve together.

      Riding well can be a puzzle. This book puts together the pieces, including:

      • How humans and horses learn.
      • Striving for partnership vs. dictatorship.
      • Early training and developing skills.
      • Demystifying equestrian-speak.
      • Dressage outside the arena.
      • Ground poles for the rest of us.
      • Jumping and cross-country tips.
      • Solving problems, wherever you ride.
      • Competition psychology.
      • Being coached and being a coach.

      “This book is aimed at riders, coaches, and anyone interested in learning more about how humans and horses interact. I have tried to harness my own experiences when I cover the three main disciplines?dressage, show jumping, and eventing?and how they relate to one another. I look at how those in a coaching position can guide riders to perform better by making their lives less complicated and more fulfilling, and I examine how riders can apply the same principles to training their horses and become self-sufficient.” ?Eric Smiley

      Reviews
      “It is a truism to say that the best coaches are those who are themselves great students. For the 40 years I have been his supporter and colleague, Eric Smiley has always been a great student. Always listening, always questioning, always thoughtful, he never rests on his laurels but continually looks for new challenges and better ideas. This attitude, combined with his wide experience, gives his words special value.” ?William Micklem, Equestrian Consultant, Writer, Creator of the Micklem Bridle

      “Eric Smiley is one of the few in the equestrian world who has gone from being a top international rider to a top international trainer and coach. He has a great technical knowledge that he combines with a well-thought-through ideology and philosophy. Eric is a naturally good horseman who has a common-sense approach to not just coaching the horse and rider, but also to solving problems where they occur. It’s therefore no surprise to me that Eric has given his book the title Two Brains,One Aim, and it’s a must read for not just coaches but also for riders on all levels.”?;Yogi Breisner, Advisor, Swedish Equestrian Federation, Former Performance Manager and Chef d’Equipe, British Eventing Team

      "I have known Eric Smiley, for many years, firstly as a competitor and then as an instructor, trainer and coach up to championship level. Eric has, like me, worked with riders at every level of experience and natural ability.

      "I have had the opportunity to read his book Two Brains, One Aim and am struck by the evident practical horsemanship that comes through combined with reference and connection to the classical principles of equitation. Eric often puts himself into the mind and skin of the horse, so his advice has obvious feeling at its heart?what it feels like to be a horse. At the same time, he also relates to the pupil and what it is like to be taught a skill.

      "This is an interesting and thought-provoking book for anyone involved as a coach, instructor, or trainer at any level in the sport."?Christopher Bartle, Performance Coach British Eventing Team, Olympic Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medalist, and Author of Training the Sport Horse

      "I have known Eric Smiley, watched him ride/compete and teach for many years, indeed, have been on the receiving end of some of these lessons. He has always had an incredible ability to break down any problems with a sympathetic and easily understood method?often with a great sense of humor added to take the sting out of any constructive criticism. This book will be an incredible help and reference point for any equestrian. Covering all aspects of training, teaching, and understanding ofour equine athletes, it is a must-have."?Ian Stark, OBE, Winner of Four Olympic Silver Medals in Eventing and Cross-Country Course Designer

      "I commend this book to riders of all disciplines because it includes tips, techniques, and training exercises, built on an overarching philosophy and structure that can benefit everyone." —Mid-South Horse Review

      Description

      In the final instalment of the Barr Colony series, Dorothy and the Bolton family are settling into life on the prairies after a treacherous journey – first across the Atlantic, and then across the open landscape as they made their way to their homestead in the Barr Colony. But now, winter is approaching. Her mam and dad are fighting, and her dad decides to travel to Edmonton to work for the winter. This leaves Dorothy, her mam, and her sister Lydia to fend for themselves on the harsh prairie, alongside Dorothy’s older brother Frank.

      As with many colonists who took land in the west, the Bolton family has no idea the brutal and harsh conditions that will befall them during a winter on the prairie. With Frank off in Battleford getting supplies, Dorothy, Lydia, and Mam attempt to fend for themselves. But no matter what they do, their sod house continues to get colder and colder, and they become desperate for warmth. They must find a way to save themselves, but how?

      Based on a true story, Anne Patton has created a compelling final chapter to the Bolton family saga.
