Olander, Ann and Farley
Top corner of front board bumped otherwise New. Although Southern California's mountain ranges are only partially wilderness, they bring wonder into our daily lives even from a distance. I wrote this book to remind us of this wonder, to champion the mountains' beauty and inspire their protection. In addition, I wrote this book for people around the world to know a seldom heralded dimension of Southern California. Several years ago I couldn't find such a book to show Swiss friends. Also I've always wanted to show our mountains' beauty to friends and relatives across the country, to come and visit them vicariously. "Call of the Mountains" is for you who can't get to the mountains, but glimpse them from afar and feel their wonder. Last, I wrote this book for you who already know these streams, canyons and peaks. For you, the following pages will jog memories of special places and occasions that are yours alone. My Story - and the stories of people I met - takes us along trails to historic areas, sparkling waterfalls, pristine meadows and the highest peaks. 192pp.

Foreward By Deller, Bill
With 392 pages of enlightening stories, historical photographs and memorabilia, this book offers a unique insight into the real world of umpiring, from the scandals and sackings to the proud achievements of the AFL Umpire's Association and its members, both in the sport and in the community.Every week of the football season, 10,000 umpires officiate at football games around Australia - week in, week out, rain, hail or shine, at both metropolitan and country competitions. Their passion and dedication rarely makes the news or enters the spirited discussions of footy lovers around the country, yet they are as crucial to the game as the players and the coaches, as the goal posts and the Sherrin.The Man in White takes the reader into the world of football umpiring over the past 100 years, first in the VFL, then in the AFL. It traces the 100-year official history of the AFL Umpires' Association, from its humble beginnings in 1909 to its role within Australian Football today, and covers many of the major umpiring incidents that have occurred both on and off the field.The Man in White is a fascinating journey through time - a journey taken in company with the most popular spot in Australia: Australian Football. 376pp.

Green, Roger and Trigoso, Joana
N.B.Top inch of book spine has been bumped otherwise As New.This book is copiously illustrated with archive photographs as well as high quality pictures depicting the Portuguese golf resorts developed under the Jordan Group banner, including photographs of many of the world's top golfers in action and famous personalities from sport, show-business, politics and business who attended the many major events organised by the Group. The main theme of the book centres on how the Andre Jordan Group changed the whole course of golfing history in Europe and boosted tourism in the Algarve by setting a new trend in golf and leisure resort development which others were later to imitate if not equal. Quinta do Lago, based on the American country club concept, was the first of its kind in Portugal and it became the blueprint for the future development of residential golf resorts in Portugal. The emphasis in the editorial is on creativity and innovation and especially the Group's commitment to strict eco-friendly principles in the design and construction or renovation and management of quality resorts (ie: Quinta do Lago, Belas Clube de Campo and Vilamoura) which today boast championship courses recognised as world class. The story also strongly underlines the imaginative marketing and new ideas that, for example, brought the Portuguese Open to Quinta da Lago in 1976 and helped to keep the championship on the European calendar at a very difficult time. A further series of seven Opens were to follow at Quinta do Lago as well as many other major tournaments such as the Algarve World Cup and the Taca Presidente da Republica. These events attracted worldwide Press and TV coverage, thereby promoting the region as a tourist destination and doing much to encourage investment. Some of the most prominent names in the world of golf have contributed information, recollections, anecdotes and commendations on the achievements of the Andre Jordan Group and this has done much to enliven and enrich the editorial. They include Arnold Palmer, Colin Montgomerie, William 'Rocky' Roquemore, William Hawtree, Ken Schofield, and, Peter Adams.248pp.
