Top 10 Books on Alpinism. Outdoor Education Survey: Best Books. Travel Literature by Jeff Tucker. Outdoor Literature by Liam Guilar. River Literature by Liam Guilar. Reading List for an Outdoor Literature Course. Peter Lewis. Illustrations by T. Like the treehouse that Peter Lewis and his friends construct, this is a book permeated with love. There is the love of work. Love of using one's hands. Love of nature.
Love of family and friends. Using journal entries, explanatory captions and reflective sidebars, the book covers a three year period in which Lewis envisions and builds a masterpiece of treehouse. For me, the book is somewhat reminiscent of the Whole Earth Catalog with its emphasis on the creative and inspirational power of the individual.
At the same time, the book is clearly a creation of the new millennial with stylist lay-out, and carefully rendered water colors, drawings, and color photographs. By Mike Lapinski. Falcon Press, Guilford, CT. ISBN I've always enjoyed Mike Lapinski's work on bears -- and his pluck. As a part of the research for a past book, he had a friend spray him with bear spray.
The experience left him stunned and appreciative of how disabling airborne capsicum powder can be. Fortunately, he recovered from the experiment to write Death in the Grizzy Maze.
In this book, Lapinski chronicles the life of Timothy Treadwell. Treadwell received national attention and became something of media star for living unnaturally close to Alaskan brown bears. Many bear biologists, however, felt he was pushing the limits, and, so it was in the fall of that he and his girlfriend were mauled and eaten by one or more bears in Katmai National Park. Lapinski retraces the twisting path followed by Treadwell which led to that tragic day in Katmai.
Along the way, we learn about these magnificent animals, their conservation, and the respect that they are clearly due. By Jon Turk. Know about stores.

Looking for a fictional illustrated trilogy about four children who have to contend with dark forces, evil etc. Read this in a Canadian School library in the 70s. Driving me nuts trying to find it. Please help. I am looking for a YA book published around - I believe it was titled "honey" or something like that.
The main character was nick-named Honey by her mom. Her mom was diagnosed with lung cancer in the book and died. I am desperately trying to find this book to re-read it. It was right after reading this book that we were told as kids that our mom had cancer.
It really changed my life and I have searched for it as an adult and have never found it. I may be mistaking the title - but don't believe so. Can anyone help? The cover had a biohazard symbol on it. Water, and a dock I think. The water made people sick. The main character drank the water and got stronger. I'm looking for the name of a children's book.

I was a foster kid living in the country. The Catholic nun read the class a story about tree that was unhappy but in the end of the story it was happy because it became a Christmas tree. The nun had to pass the book around so we could have a look at the pictures. Very few pictures, just wood block prints. The kids in that classroom were all poor and probably never had stories read to them.
This was such a treat. I really looked forward to story time. The cover of the book had a picture of a lone tree.
I cannot remember title or author. Looking for books, maybe of them, about a US Southern sheriff and his son who becomes sheriff after the dad gets shot and killed. I remember a description of long stretches of blacktop. In one of the novels the son-sheriff may have allowed himself to be imprisoned in a southern prison where black men get killed by drowning them and sinking them to the river bottom on ball and chain. All of the books are exceptional reads.
Billy Joe, Billy Bob, one of the characters has a double Southern name. The cover is a grave with christmas lights on it, with title and author in pink but I don't remember it. There's a girl called Sophie and she dies. It was said to be a suicide but her best friend knew it wasn't so she spent the book trying to find out who killed her.
