From dog sledding to ice fishing to waterfall climbing to bandy, countless possibilities await beyond the crowded ski slope and traditional winter activities. Create the winter wonderland that you desire and crave. Colder temperatures invite a variety of unique ways to interact with nature. Dog sleighs and snowshoes facilitate movement across snowy plains for everyday icy life whilst ice motocross and figure skating provide a burst of adrenaline. Whether you are looking for a vacation spot where the sun shimmers off of a glittering frozen cliff or for an athletic alternative to the conventional ski slopes, Below Zero celebrates the search for cabins instead of offices and parkas instead of suit jackets. Through images of landscapes dusted in a powdery palette and depictions of cold weather athletics, any questions of what to do with a snow day are answered in Below Zero. This volume explores the brisk side of nature's beauty and the adventures that await when the mercury drops.

From early hot rods and lowriders to modern tuning: this book presents a huge variety of unique cars from around the world. Automobiles have been tuned, restored, and rebuilt for years, but -whether made for leisurely cruising or peak performance - today's custom machines are more interesting than ever before. After exploring custom motorcycles in The Ride and The Ride 2nd Gear, it's high time to focus on the four-wheeled scene. The Drive showcases the diversity and reach of this custom movement. Each car is utterly unique; each builder a true personality. Passion and craft meet in their workshops in North America, Europe, and Asia. The resulting vehicles -and this book - are for anyone for whom a car is so much more than just a way to get around.

From the co-author of the best-selling beginners’ running book, Running Made Easy, with a foreword by internationally renowned running legend Kathrine Switzer. Lisa Jackson is a surprising cheerleader for the joys of running: truth be told, she’s not just a little bit slow, but often ‘last person across the finish line’ slow. But that hasn’t stopped former fitness-phobe Lisa from becoming a marathon runner at 31 and, more astonishingly, an ultrarunner at 41 – even if she’s come last in 17 of 85 marathons and plodded through two 56-mile ultramarathons. This is Lisa’s story, but it’s also the story of the extraordinary people she has met along the way – tutu-clad fun-runners, world record breakers, 250-mile ultrarunners, octogenarians and blind runners – whose tales of love, loss and laughter are sure to inspire you. Your Pace or Mine? is for all runners, from nervous novices right up to seasoned marathoners. It’s for anyone who longs to feel the wonderful sense of connection and achievement running has to offer. Lisa’s message is that running really isn’t about the time you do, but the time you have!

Approaching dressage from a newcomer’s perspective can be a little daunting. There seems to be so much to learn, so much to understand and some confusion surrounding what judges are looking for in tests. Even experienced riders find it difficult to break out of the 65–70% range in their test marks. Using the steps of Accuracy, Fluidity, Understanding, Practice and Review this book gives readers a clear framework on which they can build confidence in their approach to dressage training and test riding. These steps reveal where readers could be losing valuable marks and arms them with the understanding needed to achieve much higher scores. Published privately, the first edition of this book was a great success, garnering over five-star reviews and being placed in the top best-selling books on Amazon. Its popularity owed much to the ‘easy to understand language’, the clear diagrams and photographs and the overall philosophy of communication, empathy and skill development. These aspects are all retained in this revised edition, which has been expanded to include chapters on groundwork, and rider fitness. After reading this book you will be able to have a better relationship with your horse, ride more beautiful tests and get higher marks. 'Read this book to help you understand and develop the skills that good trainers often take for granted. Students and teachers all benefit when these are made explicit, giving a road map that can take us from point A to point B. This is a journey of increasing skills and scores, designed to bring more satisfaction to your riding.’ – From the Foreword by Mary Wanless BHSI BSc

No other magazine pushed the boundaries of skateboarding and pop culture like Big Brother, the raunchiest, rowdiest magazine to come out of the 1990s. Constantly at the center of much-deserved controversy, the rag has been decried as pornography, bought and unexpectedly dropped by Larry Flynt of the Hustler empire, and credited as the genesis of the Jackass universe; it was also the champion of unknown skaters and featured some of today’s biggest names in skate culture when they were just children. Now author Sean Cliver puts a bow on the publication with The Big Brother Book, a collection of covers and spreads from every issue of the notorious publication. Featuring high-quality scans of the magazine itself — no production or layout files remain in existence — with just enough text to explain what’s going on and choice quotes from each issue, this book makes it easy as well as fun to stoop to Big Brother’s level. The Big Brother Book contains adult content and is recommended for ages 18 and up.
