This exciting account of adventure and competition follows several expeditions to be the first to descend China's longest river, from its headwaters in Tibet to the Three Gorges region, and eventually to the East China Sea. Among the players are a megalomaniac American fishing guide, patriotic members of China's youth movement, novice boaters full of fear and experienced rafters filled with hubris, thrown together to challenge one of the world's most dangerous rivers. Originally published in 1989, and winner of a Lowell Thomas Award that year for best travel book, "Riding the Dragon's Back" has been slightly revised to emphasize the drama and excitement of its narrative of competition and challenge, although the chapters on Chinese exploration and history remain. This is modern river exploration at its best, and the book has inspired numerous whitewater enthusiasts over the years to emulate its adventurous spirit.

With over 50,000 copies sold, Riding the Dragon has for a decade made itself an indispensable spiritual and psychological guide to readers experiencing seasons of adversity. This anniversary edition includes a new introduction from the author with personal reflections and fresh perspectives on today's challenges. "Don't try to slay your dragons; learn to ride them!" Drawing on Eastern and Western traditions, psychologist Robert Wicks emboldens readers to face life's difficulties--the "dragons" that escape from the cave. Readers will find guidance and encouragement to engage problems as a means to growth and transformation, to ride their dragons rather than slay them or drive them back into their cave. Wicks fashions ten simple lessons on identifying and confronting the everyday dragons readers meet: from engaging darkness to finding simplicity to keeping perspective.

When windmill-dodgers David Bristow and Steve Thomas followed their dream to blaze (and map) a mountain bike trail across South Africa, they hoped to be spared howling headwinds, freezing rain and slushy terrain. They weren’t, yet were not deterred from having a mud-splattering good time. The result, the Spine of the Dragon trail, is the country’s ultimate mountain bike tour, covering a distance of 4000km from Beit Bridge to Cape Town. Aimed at the average off-road rider, the 58-day trail through South Africa and Lesotho is broken into nine sections, each with several stages. The entire course can be done in one go, or as a series of shorter rides – ideal for those with boundless enthusiasm but limited time. The authors offer valuable advice on preparing for the trail that includes suggested clothing, gear, bike maintenance, food and safety. Each day’s route is described in detail and includes: • Customised, annotated map with GPS points • Total daily distance • Difficulty grading: from short and easy to long and hard • Entertaining insight into the people and places along the way • Engaging photographs • Accommodation suggestions and contact details When he’s not out cycling, David Bristow writes for a living. He is the former editor of Getaway travel magazine and the author of more than a dozen books for Random House Struik. Steve Thomas discovered mountain bikes while living in the US in the 1980s. Upon his return to South Africa in 1992, he established Daytrippers, South Africa’s oldest and biggest bicycle touring company.

"Know thyself," says Socrates. But humankind tends to ignore human nature, choosing instead to politicalize (escape) thyself. But humankind is turning in on himself (ourself), and like it or not, in time we will be forced by necessity (the dynamic pattern of our own behavior) to meet our Lord (innermost Being), and know thyself as Life-Death, a Spirit-Matter Continuum (one Adam)--or perish altogether. The author offers a philosophical companion to his previous book of poetry The Heart Speaks. 86 pages, consisting of an introduction, 4 chapters, 3 poems and 12 articles on living faith.
