Meditations of John Muir
Chris Highland


Using the immortal words of John Muir as his medium, Chris Highland explores the Divine in Nature, those universal truths which rise above categories, denominations, and religious divisions. Drawing from world wisdom traditions that span the course of human history, Meditations of John Muir: Nature's Temple unites them under the aegis of the natural world and offers the opportunity to pause, reflect, and draw comfort from that which joins us all.

Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson

Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson
Chris Highland


Ralph Waldo Emerson's groundbreaking 1844 "Nature" essay influenced thinkers as disparate as Nietzsche, Thoreau, and Darwin, and his later writings seem to anticipate future discoveries in physics and psychology, as well as biology. Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson is a journey into the mind and heart of this great 19th century author, poet, and philosopher whose writings remain relevant and inspiring today.

In this compact book, 60 selections from 30 years of his writings reveal the essence of Emerson's spiritual vision. Like his friends John Muir and Henry David Thoreau, Emerson saw images of the divine in the natural world, and rather than seeking to conquer wilderness, sought inspiration from it.

Complementing each passage is an inspirational quote from historical and comtemporary luminaries including Margaret Fuller, the Dalai Lama, and Jack Kerouac, and voices from Taoism, Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sufism.

Meditations of Henry David Thoreau

Meditations of Henry David Thoreau
Chris Highland


When Henry David Thoreau died at the age of forty-four in 1862, he had written a forest of articles and essays that eventually earned him a reputation as a first-rate naturalist, conservationist, and social critic. His gravesite in Concord, Massachusetts, is a pilgrimage site for readers who still turn to Walden, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, Maine Woods, "Civil Disobediance," and "Walking" for inspiration. Thoreau was a supreme articulator of America's conscience when the country was industrializing, facing battle over slavery, and developing its public education system. His thoughts are brook-clear and strangely prescient today.

Chris Highland has chosen 60 thoughtful Thoreau quotations and placed them alongside the wisdom words of writers, philosopohers, and teachers from around the world. Bound in a lovely and compact format, the book totes easily along in your pocket, backpack, or picnic basket. Solitude never felt so cozy.

Meditations of Walt Whitman

Meditations of Walt Whitman
Chris Highland


In revising Leaves of Grass for its 1856 edition, Walt Whitman sacrificed the large pages of the first edition, meant to accommodate his long lines of verse, for smaller pages, with the idea that the reader would be able to enjoy the "ideal pleasure": "to put a book in your pocket and off to the seashore or the forest." It is with this same ideal in mind that Chris Highland has assembled the fourth book in the successful Meditations series, Meditations of Walt Whitman, a pocket-sized compendium of passages from Leaves of Grass. Whitman's lifelong endeavor, Leaves of Grass, is the culmination of his poetic work, published first in 1855, and constantly revised until its last edition in 1881, eleven years before his death. In Meditations of Walt Whitman, passages from Leaves of Grass are paired with the words of a variety of historical and contemporary thinkers, such as Margaret Fuller, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jane Goodall, Mark Twain, Marc Chagall, Helen Keller, Buddha, Dante, and Bhagavad Gita.

Sex in a Tent

Sex in a Tent
Michelle Waitzman


Couples going into the wild usually expect to tough it out, not to get it on. But people also go outside to seek adventure, excitement, mystery, and spontaneity—some of the same qualities also found in great sex.

Sex in a Tent is a mostly fun, sometimes serious guide to love, sex, and adventure in the great outdoors. In this penetrating look at what really goes on behind the tent flap, expert camper and outdoor love-maker Michelle Waitzman reveals everything you need to know to fulfill your wild fantasies.

Like an outdoor guide with her own special territory, Michelle has years of experience “playing the field” in the backcountry, and this book is full of her tricks. Showing you the best positions for campers (the tent tango), to recipes for a romantic meal in a Ziploc bag, to how to look and feel sexy when you’re wearing grimy zip-off hiking shorts and haven’t bathed in days (hint: zip ’em off and go skinny-dipping), she inspires you to leave behind the boring bed sheets and crawl into a tantalizing tent.

For those who don’t fancy a boink in the backcountry, this book covers other types of outdoor adventures for inspired coupling, such as paddling to your own fantasy island, making car camping the ultimate drive-in, or turning the woods into your outdoor bedroom.

 

Filled with illustrations, positions, games, tricks, and stories from dozens of outdoor lovers, this book will expose you to orgasmic opportunities for love, sex, and adventure in the great outdoors.

Powder Ghost Towns: Epic Backcountry Runs in Colorado's Lost Ski Resorts
Peter Bronski


In its heyday, Colorado had more than 175 ski areas operating on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains, and while many of those resorts have shut down, their runs still shelter secret stashes of snow. Pristine slopes await backcountry powder hounds out to discover these chutes and steeps, bunny hills and bumps. Chronicling the history of more than 36 of these "lost resorts," Powder Ghost Towns provides the beta for how to ski and board these classic runs today, with comprehensive information on trailheads, where to skin up, and the best descents. Coverage ranges from southern Wyoming's Medicine Bow Mountains to the Colorado-New Mexico border, including famous old resorts like Hidden Valley in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Santa Ana River Guide

Santa Ana River Guide
Patrick Mitchell


The Santa Ana River is Southern California’s largest river system, with its headwaters high in the San Bernardino Mountains and flowing into the Pacific Ocean more than 100 miles away. Since the area was settled by Europeans in the 19th century, the river has been diverted, dammed, covered in concrete, and exploited. Only recently have residents recognized the importance of this vital natural resource.

The Santa Ana River Guide reveals both the wild and urban sides of the Southland’s most important river. The book relates the river’s natural and human history, geology, and current conditions and provides all the information necessary to plan an outing on or near the river. It is also a call to action for further protecting and restoring the river.

Organized into six geographical sections corresponding to the river’s “reaches,” the book’s individual entries include an extensive description of each park and preserve, location and access information, and highlights of what to do there.
