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.

Wahl, Ryan
Centuries before steel, fibreglass, aluminium and automation were applied to shipbuilding, early twentieth century British Columbian shipwrights hand built fish boats entirely out of wood. Guided by their intuition and knowledge of the sea, they used only basic tools to craft thousands of vessels that shaped the way shipwrights and marine architects design the boats of today. This is an illustrated story of one of those shipwrights, Ed Wahl. With the help of his six sons, Wahl created the most successful commercial fish-boat building enterprise on British Columbia's north coast, and one of the most well known boat shops on the entire British Columbia coast. Threaded with memories of Ed's sons and the crew of the Wahl boatyards, this book provides a unique look into a family business that enabled the fishing industry to be a mainstay of British Columbia's economy. 222pp.

Adams, Carl
This book is written to help adventuresome motorcyclists buy, ride, and enjoy dual sport motorcycles, those versatile machines that are equally at home on the street and in the dirt. It is organised into four sections covering motorcycle selection, set-up, riding skills, and specialised activities such as off-road touring and rallies. Several chapters include exercises designed to improve riding technique and impart new skills. Over 250 full-colour photographs illustrate the many options for gear, clothing, and after-market accessories which can add comfort, safety, and convenience to any motorcycle adventure.The book also contains many references and sources to orient enthusiasts to the sometimes overwhelming sea of information that is available. New riders will benefit from the clear explanations of dual sport gear, accessories, and techniques, while experienced riders coming to dual sport from a street riding background will find chapters covering advanced dirt riding skills, GPS navigation, and preparing for multi-day trips. All terms are explained and riding techniques are described in detail. Riders at all levels will gain a broader perspective of the dual sport experience, from which they can begin their journey to new motorcycle adventures. 192pp.
