With long, solitary periods at sea, far from literary and cultural centers, sailors comprise a remarkable population of readers and writers. Although their contributions have been little recognized in literary history, seamen were important figures in the nineteenth-century American literary sphere. In the first book to explore their unique contribution to literary culture, Hester Blum examines the first-person narratives of working sailors, from little-known sea tales to more famous works by Herman Melville, James Fenimore Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe, and Richard Henry Dana. In their narratives, sailors wrote about how their working lives coexisted with--indeed, mutually drove--their imaginative lives. Even at leisure, they were always on the job site. Blum analyzes seamen's libraries, Barbary captivity narratives, naval memoirs, writings about the Galapagos Islands, Melville's sea vision, and the crisis of death and burial at sea. She argues that the extent of sailors' literacy and the range of their reading were unusual for a laboring class, belying the popular image of Jack Tar as merely a swaggering, profane, or marginal figure. As Blum demonstrates, seamen's narratives propose a method for aligning labor and contemplation that has broader applications for the study of American literature and history.

Todd Skinner sees climbing mountains as a natural metaphor for business challenges. To climb a mountain you must know how to define your objective, plan the best strategy, prepare your team, and surmount any obstacles on the way to the summit. This book takes the reader through this process in ten stages that apply to both real and metaphorical mountains. Skinner explains how to stay true to your vision no matter what happens, what tools you need to carry, and which preconceptions you need to leave behind. Skinner weaves these lessons into a compelling narrative, featuring the heart-stopping action of climbing the sheer rock face of Trango Tower in the Himalayas.

For more than 150 years, the White Mountains have attracted untold numbers of visitors from all over the world. The lofty peaks offer unlimited panoramas—the view from the summit of Mount Washington extends for more than 100 miles in all directions and includes 33 other mountaintops, each with an elevation exceeding 4,000 feet. Framing the Presidential Range are Crawford Notch, Franconia Notch, and Pinkham Notch, three of the most impressive wonders in the eastern part the country. The White Mountain region has numerous other points of interest: the Flume, the Pool, the Basin, the Old Man of the Mountain, Glen Ellis Falls, the Lake of the Clouds, Echo Lake, Profile Lake, and the White Horse Ledge, to name a few. The stereo technique dates from the earliest years of photography. Stereo photographs are two images of the same view taken from slightly different points, which when observed through special glasses appear as one with an added dimension of depth. Photographers took these three-dimensional views to exemplify and to preserve in print the beauty, wonders, and wealth of nature. Stereoscopic Views of the White Mountains contains more than 200 reflective stereos of the region’s mountains, lakes, rivers, and streams. These breathtaking views of the landscape, the resorts, and the villages were taken during an excursion on the early railroads. They recall the romance and idealism of the rail and stagecoach era.
