<b>An award-winning, Amazon #1 bestselling novel destined to become a classic.</b><br /><br />Did you ever get yourself involved in something only to discover that it's way bigger than you? Imagine corruption surrounding you and that there's no escape. It's too late for you to back out, but you're going to pay a heavy price for moving forward to make things right. That's when you have to suck it up and say to yourself:<br /><br /><i>Striking out is not an option . . . </i><br /><br />Survival is the name of the game when two obsessed men teeter on the cusp of madness in a war over a kids' baseball field in this thriller based on a true story.<br /><br />Travel baseball promoter Rob Barkus has a full bench. He's backed by a corrupt board of directors, a sports-fixated high school administration, and a mob of crazy travel baseball parents. He'll stop at nothing to kill the town's sandlot baseball league so that his elite travel teams can take over its beautiful Babe Ruth baseball field.<br /><br />The only obstacle between Barkus and his field of dreams is David Thompson, a Civil War buff and burned-out lawyer. When Thompson steps up to save the crumbling league for his son and the rest of the sandlot players in town, Barkus unleashes a cunning and ruthless attack against David, his family, and his teenaged league of misfit players.<br /><br />Thompson is outnumbered and surrounded. He's like a man who walked into quicksand. The harder he struggles to save the league, the deeper he sinks. On top of it all, Thompson is stuck in a family Catch-22. If he surrenders, he might lose his son's love along with his own self-respect, not to mention losing the game of summer for the sandlot kids in town. Yet if he doesn't back down, it threatens his marriage and deprives his son of any chance to play on the high school team.<br /><br />Thompson is on an emotional roller coaster and he can't get off. He is fighting his own civil war as he struggles to make a difference in the town he cherishes without harming the family he loves.<br /><br />Standing alone and pushed to his breaking point, he needs to figure out when to fold and when to fight. One thing is for sure: if he finally snaps, he won't take any prisoners.<br /><br />Captivating characters lead double lives and keep secrets in this award-winning page-turner, laced with humor, about a man who takes a stand and risks it all to make a difference in a world gone mad.<br /><br /><i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Margot Livesey says Swyers "has created a man for all seasons" in David Thompson and calls <i>Saving Babe Ruth</i> "an absorbing and compulsively readable novel."<br /><br />In a foreword, Babe Ruth's grandson, Tom Stevens, calls <i>Saving Babe Ruth<i> a "great story."<br /><br /><b>Read <i>Saving Babe Ruth</i> as the prequel to the Lawyer David Thompson Series which starts with the <i>The Killdeer Connection</i> as the first book. <i>The Killdeer Connection</i> was selected as a 2017 winner in Amazon's international Kindle Scout writing competition.</b><br /><br /><i> Saving Babe Ruth </i> is an Amazon multiple category bestseller.<br /><br /><b>Gold Winner,  Benjamin Franklin Award, 2015 "Best First Book: Fiction."<br />Silver Winner, Benjamin Franklin Award, 2015 "Best Popular Fiction."<br />Readers Views, "Best Regional Fiction 2014/2015: Northeast."<br />Finalist, "Best New Fiction," 2014 USA Best Book Awards.</b></i></i><i><i></i></i>

<p>Amazing journeys begin with a single step, but only the determined keep hiking.</p><p><b>Short-listed for Outdoor Book of the Year by The Great Outdoors Magazine</b></p><p>Every year thousands of adventurers attempt to hike all 2,180 miles of the gruelling and unforgiving Appalachian Trail. Around five months later, beaten and bruised, those who finish are known as thru-hikers.</p><p>Keith Foskett weaves a true-life tale that’s as thought-provoking as it is entertaining. Accompanied by an array of eclectic characters – including a world-champion juggler, a drug dealer, and a sex-starved builder from Minnesota – he takes the reader on a compelling adventure that pushes the limits of both endurance and imagination.</p><p>During his five months living in the woods, Foskett’s psychological apprehensions are stretched to the limit against the wild elements of nature. By turns humorous and harrowing, his journey allows him to overcome his fears while reflecting on the man he’s meant to be. His adventure weaves a route through some of America's wildest landscapes and history, and is told with insight, humour and reflection.</p><p>Perhaps he too will tame the most renowned long-distance hiking trail in the world, and emerge as a thru-hiker.</p><p><br /><b>Reviews for Balancing on Blue</b></p><p><br /><i>"A highly anticipated Appalachian Trail memoir, and well worth the wait."</i><br /><b>Daniel Neilson (The Great Outdoors Magazine)</b></p><p><i>"Long distance hikes are simultaneously life-affirming and total agony. Walking 2000 miles would be a phenomenal journey wherever in the world you did it. To tackle the legendary Appalachian Trail is a truly special experience, and one I dream of attempting sometime in my life. Amongst the bears, moose and rattlesnakes, climbing to 2000 metres, and countless aches and pains lives the memory of a special journey, the wonderful people who briefly share the experience with you, and the knowledge that lasts long after the final blister has healed. It’s a lifetime’s worth of adventurous memories crammed into one simple walk."</i><br /><b>Alastair Humphreys (Author, adventurer and a National Geographic Adventure of the Year)</b></p><p><i>"With thru-hiking gaining in popularity, many look to the Appalachian Trail to test out their trail legs, and discover why it holds the reputation it does.</i><br /><i>The wilds of this planet are serene, peaceful and offer the chance to break away from a normal existence. Keith’s wonderful perspective of the trail reflects this freedom."</i><br /><b>Jennifer Pharr Davis (Author and previous record holder for the fastest ever thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail).</b></p><p><i>"An entertaining and inspiring account of one of the world’s longest walks and the people who walk it. Keith is a perfect walking companion for the ups and downs of the trail – his easy and understated style kept me turning the pages.</i><br /><i>Essential reading for those contemplating their own big adventure."</i><br /><b>David Lintern (Editor - Outdoor Enthusiast Magazine)</b></p><p><i>"This book is for anyone who's ever dreamed about a big adventure, as Fozzie spins a funny, thought-provoking and inspiring tale of thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. You'll be handing in your notice and packing up your rucksack as soon as you've finished reading."</i><br /><b>Jenny Walters (Country Walking Magazine)</b></p><p><i>"Long distance backpacking trips can be monotonous, and it’s often the same story for most books about them. Balancing on Blue is something completely different and once again, Keith invites you to the world that he calls home.</i><br /><i>Be prepared for great story telling, unique and interesting characters, humour and insight."</i><br /><b>Andrew Skurka (Long distance hiker, adventurer and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year 2007).</b></p>

"Do you still watch those old horse movies that you've seen a dozen times, just for the scenes of the horse galloping in slow motion? Do you hold your breath just a bit? Do you get something in your eye?<br /> <br />We've been besotted with horses since they had three toes. From the popular <i>Relaxed and Forward</i> blog comes training advice combining the everyday fundamentals of dressage with mutual listening skills. Blake writes with a profound respect for horses and an articulate voice for humans, blending equal parts inspiration and un-common sense. It's serious training communicated with humor and lightness, because horses like us when we laugh. <br /><br />Most riders want to build a better relationship with their horse. These short essays are geared as much toward attitude as technique, and include topics ranging from reading calming signals from your horse to using breath as your best communication tool. Blake's writing uses clear descriptions, storytelling, and humor to inspire meaningful, positive communication. Less correction and more direction. Horses are honest; they answer us in kind. If we want a better response, a more fluid conversation and relationship with a horse, we have to be the ones to change first. The other word for that is leadership.<br /><br />By the award-winning author of Stable Relation, A Memoir of One Woman's Spirited Journey Home, by Way of the Barn.<br /><br />"Excitement and delight surge through me every time I see Anna Blake's name as an author. Her writing is filled with deep understanding and heart connection, seasoned with a lively dash of humor. Reading her work is like giving myself a gift...one I can open again and again." --Kim Walnes, winning USET Three Day Eventer, Riding Instructor/Trainer, and Life Coach.
