Outer Banks

Outer Banks

Adestination for many tourists eager for sun, sand, and a simpler way of life, and a far distant cry from the glitter and neon of more traditional, commercial oriented beaches, the Outer Banks of North Carolina is a natural wonder sheltering and buffering Eastern North Carolina from the volatile temperament of the Atlantic Ocean. Even before the official birth of North Carolina and into the twenty-first century, this coastal strip of barrier islands has played an important role in the state's and nation's history, from the mysterious and tragic disappearance of the Lost Colony on Roanoke Island to its strategic importance during the Civil War and World War II to today, serving as a friendly haven for visitors worldwide. Outer Banks, with over 180 images, many seen here for the first time, is a fascinating visual history, allowing the reader to explore the many different facets of life throughout the region. This volume is full of captivating scenes of early fishermen, both professional and amateur, proudly displaying their successful catches of the day; photographs of North Carolina's most famous aerial pioneers, the Wright Brothers, and their early experimental flying machines; views of many long-forgotten life saving stations, homes to countless brave volunteers who patrolled these turbulent waters, risking their own lives to save hundreds of sailors and passengers when their ships were in distress; and scenes of the Outer Banks' most notable and visible landmarks, its beautiful lighthouses, such as Cape Hatteras and Bodie Island.

The Happiest People in the World

The Happiest People in the World

" A] dark and funny satire . . . Infidelities, secret identities and double-crosses . . . Reflects the absurdity of any country obsessed with spying on its own people." -- The Wall Street Journal Take the format of a spy thriller, shape it around real-life incidents involving international terrorism, leaven it with dark, dry humor, toss in a love rectangle, give everybody a gun, and let everything play out in the outer reaches of upstate New York--there you have an idea of Brock Clarke's new novel. Filled with wonder and anger in almost equal parts, The Happiest People in the World is a ripped-from-the-headlines tale of paranoia and the all-American obsession with security and the conspiracies that threaten it. "A literary first: a book that feels like the love child of Saul Bellow and Hogan's Heroes, full of authorial cartwheels of comedy and profundity." -- GQ " The Happiest People in the World begins with a raucous bar scene featuring party streamers, smoke, prone bodies, spilled fluids and a stuffed moose with a surveillance camera in its left eye . . . Clarke has] success in dreaming up oddball originals that have instant appeal." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times " Clarke] creates books that taste like delicious cuts of absurdity marbled with erudition." -- The Washington Post "A whiz-bang spy satire bundled in an edgy tale of redemption . . . His comedy of errors is impossible to put down." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review "A darkly hilarious novel . . . The writing is clever, the dialogue snappy and understated, and the effect is as pleasantly unsettling as anything Kurt Vonnegut Jr. ever wrote." -- The Portland Sun "A zany and fast-paced book that explores the myriad ways people of all nations make themselves and others unhappy." -- Chicago Tribune, Printer's Row "Ranks among the funniest and most relevant social satires I've read . . . It might just make you the happiest reader in the world." -- The Dallas Morning News

Outer Hebrides

Outer Hebrides

This new, thoroughly updated second edition of Bradt's Outer Hebrides: The Western Isles of Scotland, from Lewis to Barra by experienced writer and journalist Mark Rowe is the only full-size guide to focus solely on the islands of Lewis, Harris, St Kilda, Berneray, North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist, Eriskay, Barra and Vatersay. Masses of background information is included, from geography and geology to art and architecture, with significant coverage of wildlife, too, as well as all the practical details you could need: when to visit, suggested itineraries, public holidays and festivals, local culture, plus accommodation and where to eat and drink. Walkers, birdwatchers, wildlife photographers, beach lovers and genealogists are all catered for, and this is an ideal guide for those who travel simply with curious minds to discover far-flung places of great cultural, historical and wildlife interest. The Outer Hebrides is an archipelago of 14 inhabited islands and more than 50 others that are free of human footprint. Huge variations in landscape are found across the islands, from Lewisian gneiss, which dates back almost three billion years, to rugged Harris with its magnificent sands running down its western flanks and the windswept, undulating flatness and jagged sea lochs of the Uists. This is a land where Gaelic is increasingly spoken and ancient monuments abound, where stunning seabird colonies and birds of prey can be watched, and where the grassy coastal zones known as the machair are transformed into glorious carpets of wildflowers in late spring and summer. Whether visiting the Standing Stones of Callanish, the Uig peninsula, Barra's Castlebay, or historic St Kilda, or if you just want to experience the romance of the Sound of Harris, one of the most beautiful ferry journeys in the world, Bradt's Outer Hebrides: The Western Isles of Scotland, from Lewis to Barra has all the information you need.
