Download or read book A Week in the Woods written by Andrew Clements and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2002-09-20 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mark didn't ask to move to New Hampshire. Or to go to a hick school like Hardy Elementary. And he certainly didn't request Mr. Maxwell as his teacher. Mr. Maxwell doesn't like rich kids, or slackers, or know-it-alls. And he's decided that Mark is all of those things. Now the whole school is headed out for a week of camping -- Hardy's famous Week in the Woods. At first it sounds dumb, but then Mark begins to open up to life in the country, and he decides it might be okay to learn something new. It might even be fun. But things go all wrong for Mark. The Week in the Woods is not what anyone planned. Especially not Mr. Maxwell. With his uncanny knack to reach right to the heart of kids, Andrew Clements asks -- and answers -- questions about first impressions, fairness, loyalty, and courage -- and exactly what it takes to spend a Week in the Woods.

Download or read book Woodcraft & Camping written by George Washington Sears and published by DigiCat. This book was released on 2022-11-13 with total page 142 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It is an age of hurry and worry. Fortunes are quickly made and freely spent. Nearly all busy, hard-worked Americans have an intuitive sense of the need that exists for at least one period of rest and relaxation during each year, and all—or nearly all—are willing to pay liberally, too liberally in fact, for anything that conduces to rest, recreation and sport. I am sorry to say that we mostly get swindled. To the man of millions it makes little difference. I do not write for him, and can do him little good. But there are hundreds of thousands of practical, useful men, many of them far from being rich; mechanics, artists, writers, merchants, clerks, business men—workers, so to speak—who sorely need and well deserve a season of rest and relaxation at least once a year. To these, and for these, I write. (George Washington Sears, Chapter I)
Download or read book Woodcraft written by Nessmuk and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2015-02-17 with total page 112 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Legendary canoeing guide, conservationist in the 1800s, and one of the first proponents of the hyper popular “ultra-light” camping style, George Washington “Nessmuk” Sears was a true American mountain man. Using a 9-foot-long, 10 and a half pound canoe he successfully completed a 266-mile journey through the central Adirondacks. His classic treatise on American camping, Woodcraft , is definitive proof that he was the most capable and intelligent woodsman of his time. First published in 1884, and continuously in print ever since then, this is the ultimate book for hikers, campers, fishers, canoers, and anyone else who feels the call of the wild. With information on what to bring, how to build fires, how to fish with and without flies, and how to cook, this book is still totally relevant in our modern society. For anyone with even a passing interest in getting closer to nature this is required reading. The forerunner of the ultra-light camping movement and the precursor to all other books on camping and traveling through the wilderness, Woodcraft belongs on the bookshelf of every aspiring mountain person.

Download or read book House of Lies written by Martin Kihn and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2009-06-27 with total page 217 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the bestselling tradition of Liar's Poker comes a devastatingly accurate and darkly hilarious behind-the-scenes look at the wonderful world of management consulting. Once upon a time in Corporate America there was a group of men and women who were paid huge fees to tell organizations what they were doing wrong and how to improve themselves. These men and women promised everything and delivered nothing, said they were experts when they were not, sometimes ruined careers, and at best, only wasted time, energy, and huge sums of money. They called themselves Management Consultants…. Welcome to the world of Martin Kihn, a former standup comic and Emmy® Award-nominated television writer who decided to “go straight” and earn his MBA at a prestigious Ivy League university. In HOUSE OF LIES, he brazenly chronicles his first two years as a newly-minted management consultant: featuring his struggles with erroneous advice, absurd arrogance, and bloody power struggles. Hey, it’s all in a day’s work— and it pays really well!

Download or read book Wasn't That a Time? written by Robert Schrank and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 1999 with total page 482 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The compelling autobiography of Robert Schrank recounts a life of empathy, principles, and activism. "I was born two weeks before the Bolshevik Revolution into an immigrant family that was part of New York's large German socialist community." So begins Robert Schrank's compelling autobiography. In a down-to-earth, anecdotal style, he recounts a life rare in the breadth of its experience and the depth of its transformations. From Young Communist League member and union activist to management consultant for global corporations, Schrank has lived a life based on empathy and principles, and has been an activist in some of the major political and social upheavals of this century.Schrank writes from the point of view of the rank and file, even when describing his role in the leadership of the New York State Machinists Union. A rebel in his own land, he was expelled three times from union office; and in a landmark First Amendment case (Schrank vs. Brown) the State Supreme Court twice returned him to membership. Convinced by the early 1950s of the failure of socialism in the Soviet Union, he broke with the Party. Yet he remained faithful to the ideals of his radical upbringing, even as he joined the corporate world of his former enemies.
Download or read book Summerwood/Winterwood written by E. L. Chen and published by ChiZine Publications. This book was released on 2019-10-22 with total page 416 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Pray you never find your Summerwood, Grandfather had said. I’d found something worse. I’d found his. In Summerwood, twelve-year old Rosalind Hero Cheung can’t wait to spend the summer in Toronto with her teenaged sister Julie and their famous author grandfather. Years ago Walter Denison wrote a series of bestselling children’s novels about a magical land called the Summerwood. But to Hero’s dismay, Walter is cold toward his granddaughters and Julie derides Hero’s hope that the Summerwood is real. Nevertheless, one day she and Julie stumble into the Summerwood. Ruled by the beautiful and enigmatic Lady of Summer, it is the idyllic fantasy land out of Walter’s books, complete with quaintly dressed talking animals. However, Hero discovers the Summerwood is far more sinister than Walter had ever let on. Julie is abducted and, to save her life, Hero must find the Summerwood’s sacred winter stag. Hero quickly learns that setting out on a fantasy quest is far more prosaic—and terrifying—than she’d ever imagined, and there is a steep and bloody price to pay for being the hero. In Winterwood, three years have passed since Lindy Cheung went into the Summerwood and emerged changed and broken. Now she’s getting into trouble—starting fights, skipping school, dating unsuitable boys. After her mother grounds her—again—she runs off to Toronto to her sister, the only person who knows what really happened three years ago. But Juliet has moved on from the trauma, and Lindy finds herself back in the Summerwood, where an old enemy tells her: The stag must die again. And this time, in order to save the Summerwood, she has to be the bad guy instead of the hero.

Download or read book The Magnolia Jungle written by P. D. East and published by Pickle Partners Publishing. This book was released on 2017-04-07 with total page 254 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: First published in 1960, this book tells of author P. D. East’s trials and tribulations as a liberal editor during the times of the civil rights movement in the Deep South. It is also the story of his struggle to find his own identity and maturity out of a confused, poverty-ridden childhood in rough country towns, which created the prelude for his growing awareness of the blight of southern hypocrisy and racial discrimination. A succinctly and well-told story. “In all, the book tends to explain, not apologize for, East’s eccentric journalism, his militant but sometimes inconsistent editorial thinking, and his refusal to retreat from terrific southern hostility, even at the danger of his and his family’s well-being. East in the end appears something of a hero and, indeed, an anomaly in these conformist times.”—Kirkus Review
