Davis, Neal and Sandy
Texas is big and amazingly diverse. It is a desert. It is a forest. It is bone dry. And it is teeming swampland. Author Neal Davis has managed to fit rides into one book that will show you all these faces of Texas. With this new, updated edition Davis has expanded his coverage to include several excursions into northern Mexico as well. Texas has over 3 million acres of inland lakes and rivers, 600 miles of oceanfront, and countless bayous and swamps in the eastern part of the state. Over 20 million acres of Texas are covered with trees. Most important to motorcyclists, it has almost 100 mountains that exceed 5,000 feet in elevation - with eight exceeding 8,000 feet - each conveniently adorned with smooth roads that are waiting for you to explore. Texas roads will take you from an ocean-side lobster shack with the best chowder outside of New England to a lush forest highway that winds through a bursting riverbed in the shadow of several snow-capped mountain peaks. You're guaranteed a great day when your most important decision will be whether to crank the throttle and power up a mountain road, or slip down into town to try the local deli. Texas has thousands of destinations, attractions, and landscapes to explore. Davis has laid out for you a choice sampling of the best roads to ride, the best restaurants along the way, and the best times to see (or avoid) the hot tourist spots. If you are taking your bike to Texas, or are ready to dust off your Texas plates, this book will help and entertain you along the way. As Davis explains in his Introduction, 'if you love motorcycling, you will love Texas'.286pp.

Eaude, Michael
Arturo Barea (1897-1957) is often seen as merely a spontaneous writer with a passion against injustice. In fact, he set out deliberately to write concretely and sensuously: about himself in order to understand his mid-life nervous breakdown; and about his generation as a way of explaining the underlying causes of the Spanish Civil War. With acute psychological insight, this self-taught boy from the slums, who left school aged 13, drew a unique portrait of Spanish society in the early twentieth century. His trilogy "The Forging of a Rebel" was well-received by George Orwell, "An excellent book - Senor Barea is one of the most valuable of the literary acquisitions that England has made as a result of Fascist persecution"; and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "One of the best novels written in Spanish." He is unusual in that he was one of the first Spanish working-class writers, one of the first autobiographers in Spain, and someone who published mainly in English though all his attention was focused on Spain. In this ground-breaking biography, based on numerous interviews with people who knew Barea, Michael Eaude revisits Barea's writing qualities and deficiencies in the context of stimulating intersections of literature and politics, and of Spain and England. He evaluates all his major works, including "The Track", the story of Barea's time as a sergeant during the 1920s colonial war in Morocco; "The Forge", the story of city and country, school and work, in the first years of the twentieth century, told through the eyes of a child; "The Clash", the story of Barea's experience as a censor during the Civil War; "The Broken Root", his last novel, about exile and an imagined return to Madrid; and, his short stories and essays. He also puts into perspective Barea's more than 800 talks for the BBC, and rebuts slanders that Barea did not write his own books. It is published in association with the Canada Blanch Centre for Contemporary Spanish Studies. 243pp.

Niskanen, Chris
Minnesota is home to prairies and forests, lakes and rivers, bison and grey wolf - and a treasured system of state parks. Emblems of natural history, many were created to protect an ecosystem such as the giant hardwood trees at Nerstrand Big Woods, features like the spectacular waterfalls at Gooseberry or limestone caves at Forestville, and historic structures such as the early settlement of Fort Ridgely along the Minnesota River. Recreational opportunities are equally diverse - and so are the people who pursue them. Photographer Doug Ohman visited each of Minnesota's sixty-six parks to capture their classic beauty, storied wildlife, and wealth of activities in all seasons. More than two hundred colour photographs illustrate sixteen essays by outdoors writer Chris Niskanen, who chronicles the sights, sounds, and experiences of exploring the parks through the eyes of those who know them best - rangers, naturalists, and long-time users. There is the travelling salesman who is also an avid birdwatcher; a couple so excited about their state parks adventures that they worked geocaching into their wedding theme; and, daughters on a camping trip to the rocky outcrops of Lake Superior's North Shore, a personal tale recounted by Niskanen. The result is an elegant package of memories for those who frequent the parks - and an invitation to all comers to see Minnesota's natural world at its best. 211pp.
