At twenty-one, Maryn Cannon found herself standing at a crossroads. With college graduation approaching, she had two options: follow the traditional career trajectory and buy a business professional wardrobe, or follow the uncertain career trajectory and find a job in the outdoors.<br /><br />This book shares the stories of eighteen inspiring women that showed Maryn that choosing a life in the outdoors can be done, and should be done.<br /><br />These women shared details about what comes along with being a woman in the outdoor industry – both the indoor corporate sphere and outdoor athletic sphere. Their experiences runs the gamut from professional sailing, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, alpine climbing, and kitesurfing, to thru-hiking, ultramarathon running, fly fishing, solo-backpacking, and outdoor education instruction. These uplifting women (and so many more) have not only accomplished jaw-dropping feats in the outdoors, but they have defied our society’s expectations.<br /><br />"Maryn distills many of the thoughts about the industry that have floated around my head for years. I wish I’d read this book when I was finishing school. She gives hope that there’s a future for everyone in the outdoors, not just bearded dudes in flannel." <br />- Liz Thomas, experienced long-distance hiker

Breeze is on the move again, aboard Leap of Faith. There is trouble lurking in every port. He gets mixed up with a cocaine kingpin, talks his way out of a Cuban jail, and takes on a pretty refugee as a passenger. His trusty trawler takes him from the Keys to the Caribbean, and even to the Chesapeake Bay, where he contemplates turning himself in to the authorities. This is a timely tale that uses current events to shape the storyline; from our diplomatic relations with Cuba, to the social impact of Fifty Shades of Grey.<br /><br />Robinson has proven himself to be a master of the nautical narrative. His adventure stories are part John D. MacDonald, and part Papa Hemingway. Following Breeze has action to burn. You’ll feel the excitement as the pages turn faster and faster. You’ll feel for Breeze as he struggles with his inner demons. You won’t guess how it ends. <br />(Second edition; corrected for typos, error free)

From one of <I>Outside</I> magazine’s “Literary All-Stars” comes the thrilling true tale of the fastest boat ride ever, down the entire length of the Colorado River and through the Grand Canyon, during the legendary flood of 1983.<BR><BR>In the spring of 1983, massive flooding along the length of the Colorado River confronted a team of engineers at the Glen Canyon Dam with an unprecedented emergency that may have resulted in the most catastrophic dam failure in history. In the midst of this crisis, the decision to launch a small wooden dory named “The Emerald Mile” at the head of the Grand Canyon, just fifteen miles downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam, seemed not just odd, but downright suicidal.<BR> <BR>The Emerald Mile, at one time slated to be destroyed, was rescued and brought back to life by Kenton Grua, the man at the oars, who intended to use this flood as a kind of hydraulic sling-shot. The goal was to nail the all-time record for the fastest boat ever propelled—by oar, by motor, or by the grace of God himself—down the entire length of the Colorado River from Lee’s Ferry to Lake Mead. Did he survive? Just barely. Now, this remarkable, epic feat unfolds here, in <I>The Emerald Mile</I>.<B></B>

<b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i>–bestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany and now the inspiration for the PBS documentary “The Boys of ‘36”<br /><br /></b>For readers of <i>Unbroken</i>, out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant.<br /><br /> It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>
