<p><b>鈥淎 remarkable story beautifully told鈥mong such classics as Goodall鈥檚 <i>In the Shadow of Man </i>and Fossey鈥檚 <i>Gorillas in the Mist</i>.鈥濃€?lt;i>Chicago Tribune</i></b><br /><br /> Carrying little more than a change of clothes and a pair of binoculars, two young Americans, Mark and Delia Owens, caught a plane to Africa, bought a thirdhand Land Rover, and drove deep into the Kalahari Desert. There they lived for seven years, in an unexplored area with no roads, no people, and no source of water for thousands of square miles. In this vast wilderness the Owenses began their zoology research, working along animals that had never before been exposed to humans.<br /><br /> An international bestseller, Cry of the Kalahari is the story of the Owenses鈥檚 life with lions, brown hyenas, jackals, giraffes, and the many other creatures they came to know. It is also a gripping account of how they survived the dangers of living in one of the last and largest pristine areas on Earth.</p>

In the summer of 1978, twenty-one-year-old Paul Wilson jumps at the chance to join two local icons on a dream surf trip to mainland Mexico, unaware their ultimate destination lies in the heart of drug cartel country. Having no earthly idea of where he鈥檒l get the money to pay his share, and determined to prove his mettle, he does the only thing he can think of: He robs a supermarket. And, if karma didn鈥檛 already have enough reason to doom the trip, he soon learns one of his companions is a convicted killer on the run, and the other an unscrupulous cad. Mishap and misfortune rule the days, and mere survival takes precedence over surfing. <br />Original photographs (including pre-kingpin El Chapo), and Wilson鈥檚 strong narrative style, combine to make this true story personal鈥攊n the tradition of Into The Wild by Jon Krakauer, and Barbarian Days, A Surfing Life by William Finnegan鈥攅xcept this tale had to wait for the statute of limitations to expire before it could be told.<br /><br /><strong>鈥淏ad Karma is one badass piece of work.鈥?lt;em> 鈥?Jan Goode</em></strong><br /><br /><strong>鈥淗angin with El Chapo.

Only four men survived the plane crash. The pilot. A politician. A cop... and the criminal he was shackled to.<br /><br />On an icy night in October 1984, a commuter plane carrying nine passengers crashed in the remote wilderness of northern Alberta, killing six people. Four survived: the rookie pilot, a prominent politician, a cop, and the criminal he was escorting to face charges. Despite the poor weather, Erik Vogel, the 24-year-old pilot, was under intense pressure to fly. Larry Shaben, the author's father and Canada's first Muslim Cabinet Minister, was commuting home after a busy week at the Alberta Legislature. Constable Scott Deschamps was escorting Paul Archambault, a drifter wanted on an outstanding warrant. Against regulations, Archambault's handcuffs were removed-a decision that would profoundly impact the men's survival. <br /><br />As the men fight through the night to stay alive, the dividing lines of power, wealth, and status are erased, and each man is forced to confront the precious and limited nature of his existence.

The best-selling author of聽<i>Born to Run</i>聽now travels to the Mediterranean, where he discovers that the secrets of ancient Greek heroes are still alive and well on the island of Crete, and ready to be unleashed聽in the muscles and minds of casual athletes and aspiring heroes everywhere.聽<br /><br /> After running an ultramarathon through the Copper Canyons of Mexico, Christopher McDougall finds his next great adventure on the razor-sharp mountains of Crete, where a band of Resistance fighters in World War II plotted the daring abduction of a German general from the heart of the Nazi occupation. How did a penniless artist, a young聽shepherd, and a playboy poet believe they could聽carry out such a remarkable feat of strength and endurance, smuggling the general past thousands of Nazi pursuers, with little more than their own wits and courage to guide them?聽<br /><br /> McDougall makes his way to the island to find the answer and retrace their steps, experiencing firsthand the extreme physical challenges the Resistance fighters and their local allies faced. On Crete, the birthplace of the classical Greek heroism that spawned the likes of Herakles and Odysseus, McDougall discovers the tools of the hero鈥攏atural movement, extraordinary endurance, and efficient nutrition. All of these skills, McDougall learns, are still practiced in far-flung pockets throughout聽the world today.<br /><br /> More than a mystery of remarkable people and cunning schemes, <i>Natural Born Heroes</i> is a fascinating investigation into the lost art of the hero, taking us from the streets of London at midnight to the beaches of Brazil at dawn, from the mountains of Colorado to McDougall鈥檚 own backyard in Pennsylvania, all places where modern-day athletes are honing ancient聽skills so they鈥檙e ready for anything.聽<br /><br /> Just as聽<i>Born to Run</i>聽inspired readers to get off the treadmill, out of their shoes, and into the natural world,聽<i>Natural Born Heroes</i>聽will inspire them to leave the gym and take their fitness routine to nature鈥攖o climb, swim, skip, throw, and jump their way to their own heroic feats.
