Biking from Oregon to Maine is no small feat, especially for two newly retired women who carry everything they need for three months, powered only by the strength of their legs and a desire for adventure. Alice Honeywell and Bobbi Montgomery invite listeners to follow their ride by bicycle across the United States, as they face scorching sun, driving rain, buffeting winds, equipment failures, killer hills, wild fires, and even a plague of grasshoppers. As Alice and Bobbi pedal along their 3,600-mile journey, they test and deepen their friendship, defy their aches and pains, experience the vast and varied beauties of their country, and discover the challenges and satisfaction of a scaled-down lifestyle. And, they encounter unfailing generosity from people they meet - from the prayers of a North Dakota woman for their safekeeping, to the offer of a house in Michigan, to invitations for dinner and a place to sleep at stops all along the way. And there are incidents to laugh over, too, such as the bewildered woman who asked them, ´´Well, but where do you pack your dresses?´´ Ride along with Alice and Bobbi as they embrace retirement with gusto and live their dream. 1.

What is your art really about? Where is it going? What stands in the way of getting it there? These are questions that matter, questions that recur at each stage of artistic development - and they are the source for this volume of wonderfully incisive commentary. Art & Fear explores the way art gets made, the reasons it often doesn´t get made, and the nature of the difficulties that cause so many artists to give up along the way. This is a book about what it feels like to sit in your studio or classroom, at your wheel or keyboard, easel or camera, trying to do the work you need to do. It is about committing your future to your own hands, placing free will above predestination, choice above chance. It is about finding your own work. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Arthur Morey.

A purpose and meaning from four wheels and a piece of wood. Professional Skateboarder Doug Brown stumbled into fame, or it stumbled into him. But he wasn´t always shredding for money and handing out autographs. Raised in a family with a sick mother, weary father, and responsible brother left him only one role to play—the black sheep. Under the shadow of his mother´s cancer and his family´s disapproval, Doug found an escape: skateboarding. Love for the arts and the thrill of skateboarding kept Doug occupied for years, but he never once thought his black sheep antics would bring him fame, money, and the approval he longed for. In this intimate autobiography, Doug Brown dares to share his life, the trials and successes, in order to inspire within his readers the courage to do what you love, no matter what. This is Doug Brown: Beyond the Board. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Josh Kilbourne. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tate/000617/bk_tate_000617_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
John Gierach is known for his witty, trenchant observations about fly-fishing. In A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach once again takes us into his world and scrutinizes the art of fly-fishing. He travels to remote fishing locations where the airport is not much bigger than a garage and a flight might be held up because a passenger is running late. He sings the praises of the skilled pilots who fly to remote fishing lodges in tricky locations and bad weather. He explains why even the most veteran fisherman seems to muff his cast whenever he´s being filmed or photographed. He describes the all-but-impassable roads that fishermen always seem to encounter at the best fishing spots and why fishermen discuss four-wheel drive vehicles almost as passionately and frequently as they discuss fly rods and flies. And while he´s on that subject, he explains why even the most conscientious fisherman always seems to accumulate more rods and flies than he could ever need. From Alaska to the Rockies and across the continent to Maine and the Canadian Maritimes, A Fly Rod of Your Own is an ode to those who fish. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Chamberlain.
