The San Rafael Swell is an anticline, or a geological uplift, that originally looked like an oval bowl turned upside down. Over time it has been carved into castle-like formations and deep canyons by erosive conditions. This landscape seemed so formidable to early cartographers that it was the last area in the continental United States to be mapped. The San Rafael Swell itself has no permanent human inhabitants, but small towns are scattered along its northern and eastern borders where first American Indians and later cowboys, ranchers, and miners made their homes. The hardy settlers of these towns familiarized themselves with what they called "the Desert" and gradually discovered its treasures and its secrets.

Wave watchers around the world know that no two waves are the same. Yet each and every wave that rises, peaks, and crashes onto the beach is generated by a much larger force originating thousands of miles away. Surf journalist team Evan Slater and Peter Taras capture the essence of waves and the swells that produce them in this breathtaking collection of wave photography. Slater characterizes four distinct swells from different corners of the globe and traces their journeys throughout the year from storm to seashore. His reflective, informative essays amplify these powerful images of hundreds of waves frozen in time, beautiful, simple, universal, yet wholly unique—and the best thing to watch on the planet.

The vast public lands of the American West are being transformed today, not geologically but conceptually. A century ago, visitors to western public lands were likely to be ranchers or miners. Today, the lands are popular destinations for campers, hikers, rock climbers, river runners, artists, and off-road-vehicle enthusiasts. These new visitors have proved to be a challenge for managers of public lands, in particular the federal Bureau of Land Management. Perhaps no area has been more affected by changing users and shifting policies than the San Rafael Swell, a million-acre expanse in southeastern Utah. In this insightful and useful book, Jeffrey Durrant follows the trail of decisions and events that have hadÑand continue to haveÑa transformative impact on this ancient land. In detailing political and environmental squabbles over the San Rafael Swell, Durrant illuminates issues that confront land managers, bureaucrats, and elected officials throughout the country. He describes struggles between county commissioners and environmental activists, conflicts over water rights, proposals that repeatedly fail to gain government approval, and political posturings. Caught in the crossfire, and often overwhelmed, the Bureau of Land Management has seen its long-time missionÑonce centered on grazing and mining rightsÑtransmogrify into a new and, to some, unsettling responsibility for recreation and preservation. The sandstone crags and twisting valleys of the San Rafael Swell present a formidable landscape, but as this book clearly shows, the political landscape may be even more daunting, strewn with bureaucratic boulders and embedded with fixed positions on the functions and values of public land.

Overweight? Out of shape? Try Swell-Wimp—a revolutionary new program of sexual exercises designed to help you reduce and control your weight. No expensive equipment required. No strict diet. Swell-Wimp is simple, it’s natural and it’s fun! Sounds plausible, doesn’t it? Every form of exercise "burns" calories, so engaging in sexual exercise should work as well as any other type. Swell-Wimp is a humorous parody of exercise, diet and self-help books. With Swell-Wimp you maximize energy expenditure during sexual activity. How? Burn more calories during sex by vocalizing (sing, laugh, yell), exercising (sexual sit-ups, push-ups and dancing) and wearing more "clothes" (coats, weight belts, heavy shoes). Absurd? No, it’s all very logical.

It is well documented that ocean swell arrives at the U.S. Pacific coast especially southern California, from the Southern Ocean during the Northern Hemisphere summer. This swell can have a major impact on sand transport in the littoral zone as it shoals and breaks on the beach. Hindcast wave information for this region does not contain this component of the wave climate. This report describes a method by which this swell can be included in future wave hindcasts. Buoy wave measurements are analyzed to identify and characterize swell from the Southern Hemisphere. The Wave Information Study wave model WISWAVE 2.0 is used to hindcast swell from a hypothetical storm in the Southern Hemisphere as well as actual storms during the summers of 1988 and 1989. Hindcast results are compared to theory and measurements. Swell heights calculated by the model tend to be higher than those determined from measurements. Differences are attributed to loss of swell energy during propagation through the south Pacific islands not represented in the model and possibly to inaccurate wind speeds and directions over the Southern Ocean. Despite differences, the approach is considered practical if model results are calibrated to measurements.

“Put on sunscreen and shades, get a cool drink, and join in on the fun” (Deadly Pleasures) as laid-back surfer and San Diego P.I. Noah Braddock catches a crime wave with a six-pack in the fridge, a solid beach view, and a killer past that’s come knocking. Noah remembers Marilyn Crier as the stuck-up mother of his high-school girlfriend, Kate. Back then she thought Noah was strictly out of her daughter’s league. Now, she’s appeared out of the blue, because Kate’s missing, and she thinks Noah might be able to find her—for old time’s sake. But as the investigation deepens, Noah discovers more about Kate than he ever wanted to. A lifetime away from high school, she’s been traveling in some pretty dark circles, and it’s going to take pretty sharp moves if Noah wants to make it back out alive. “Jeff Shelby has rejuvenated the P.I. novel, and not a moment too soon.”—J. A. Konrath, Anthony Award nominated author of Bloody Mary

Byron Loker's stories are different from anything that has been written in English in South Africa - they are fresh, honest, off the wall but simultaneously clear moments of everyday life. At the same time they owe much in tone and style to the work of Herman Charles Bosman without being in any way imitative. It is as if the short story tradition, which was interrupted by the dictates of apartheid, has been resumed. The narrator of all the stories is a young aspirant writer (a surfer, a traveller), a character who shares little with Oom Schalk Lourens except a wry point of view, an appreciation of irony and an ability to observe the world in fine (and usually sardonic) detail. Were it not for this askance view of the world, Loker would not have been able to venture out along the razor's edge, particularly in our current time of political correctness and exaggerated sensitivities.
