Hunting Nature's Fury
Roger Hill with Peter Bronski


Each year, at least 1,200 tornadoes batter the United States. While most occur in Tornado Alley—a vast, weather-beaten swath of middle America—in truth, tornadoes can occur almost anywhere. And where there are tornadoes, there are storm chasers. They come in all shapes and sizes, from hobbyists to researchers to professional chasers. There is one, however, who stands well above the rest: Roger Hill.

Hunting Nature’s Fury tells the story of Roger Hill and his love affair with storm chasing, taking you on a suspenseful and dramatic ride across the Great Plains, into the Deep South, even into the eyes of such recent hurricanes as Katrina. You’ll accompany Hill as he braves close calls, makes history, and gains insight into the science of severe weather. This is a story of a storm chaser obsessed with the storms that almost killed him; of resiliency in the face of disaster; and of humility in the presence of the awesome power of nature.

Includes eight color pages of jaw-dropping photos taken by Hill showing many of the storms chronicled in the book.

Fixing Your Feet 6ed
John Vonhof


Foot pain and injuries can thwart even the most experienced athlete, whether on the trail, asphalt, or ball court. Every professional or amateur athlete who pushes the limits of his or her feet needs to learn the basics and finer points of footcare. Foot expert and ultrarunner John Vonhof discredits the conventional wisdom of "no pain, no gain," teaching instead how the interplay of anatomy, biomechanics, and footwear can lead to happy or hurting feet. With a focus on individual and team care, the 6th edition of Fixing Your Feet covers all that any active person needs to know to find out what works now and also hundreds of miles down the road.

This sixth edition has an important new chapter, Blister Prevention—A New Paradigm. It contains new information about blister formation and introduces the concept of shear, which, in turn, changes the way we look at blister prevention and treatment.

John's advice comes from his own experience, as well as from numerous foot experts and ultramarathoners who know what works for them. For each problem, numerous solutions are offered. There is no one best solution—different treatments work for different feet. Clear diagrams, photos, and charts demonstrate foot maladies and treatment techniques.

This comprehensive resource covers the full gamut of footwear basics, prevention, and treatments. If it can happen to a foot, it's covered in this book.

100 Views of the Golden Gate

100 Views of the Golden Gate



With a bow to the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), whose woodblock series 100 Views of Mt. Fuji celebrates Japan’s iconic mountain, this book is a lush photographic paean to San Francisco’s world-famous icon—the majestic Golden Gate. In this tribute to the natural wonders of the San Francisco landscape, as well as the enduring marvel of the Golden Gate Bridge, professional photographer/writer and Bay Area native Harold Davis has created a collection of over 100 striking digital photographs of the Gate—the strait that connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean and the Bridge itself—taken from different vantage points, times of day and night, and seasons. Awash in color and mood, the all-color digital images in this book show that the Golden Gate is worth a look again and again and again.

* Includes reproductions of well-known Hokusai prints, as well as back stories for each Golden Gate photo.
* Author of a number of other photography books, Harold Davis also writes the popular Photoblog 2.
