  • Incidents of Travel in Greece, Turkey, Russia, and Poland

    Karton Kapak
    His wandering spirit mellowing his analytic eye, John L. Stephens is the best kind of guide. Whether describing the richness of a seraglio in Turkey or the drama of a gambling hall in Russia, the congenial and charismatic style of his narrative-with its hearty doses of humor-is warming, while the enthusiastic accounts of treks, discoveries, and friends made utterly engages. Add to this Stephens' conscientious inclusion of historical, sociopolitical, anthropological, and sometimes mythological, context, and Incidents of Travel in Greece, Turkey, Russia, and Poland becomes the next best thing to being there. American traveler, diplomat, and author JOHN LLOYD STEPHENS (1805-1852) topped off an academic youth by exploring the world, eventually distinguishing himself in such endeavors as playing a primary role in the building of the Panama Railroad, and producing the era's preeminent record of Mesoamerican culture in his work Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatan.

Whether a rider is interested in a quiet afternoon ride or a five-day backwoods endurance event, Trail Riding is essential reading. Promoting the whole adventure, from start to finish, Poe also includes amazing trail stories from riders across North America, as well as a resource listing great trail rides.

    These days, bicycles are as much a part of the image of Paris as the Eiffel Tower. Through his photographs, Gil Garcetti captures fleeting figures, silhouettes that appear suddenly, turn a street corner and then disappear on the horizon. With an artist's eye, he goes beyond documentation and creates a delicate mosaic of our city on bicycles. This elegant work is at once tribute and testimony to the mix of commonplace and extraordinary featured on its pages.—Bertrand Delanoë, mayor of ParisIn Paris: Women & Bicycles, acclaimed photographer Gil Garcetti (Iron: Erecting the Walt Disney Concert Hall) focuses his attention on the head-turning sight of women as they ride their bicycles through the scenic streets of Paris. Dressed with a quintessential French flair, Parisian women of all ages commute to work, run errands, meet friends for coffee, catch a movie, or go to the theater. Through snow, rain, and summer heat they eschew cars, doing their part to clear the air in the city of light.
