The writer contemplates the choices a hiker must make and many other matters worth pondering. The book is based on writings made in the evenings after a day of hiking and they vividly reflect the honest thoughts of the writer at the time.

The text is not solely limited to the route in question but includes elements and themes from previous mountain hike experiences. In addition to providing information on the progress made during the route, the text gives insight into practical matters, including equipment, accommodations and securing lodgings.

Of all the mountain guides who came to North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Conrad Kain is probably the most respected and well known. In this internationally anticipated reissue of "Where the Clouds Can Go" - first published in 1935, with subsequent editions in 1954 and 1979 - the original text has been accentuated with an expanded selection of over 50 archival images, highlighting climbs in the diverse mountain landscapes of North America, Europe and New Zealand. The new foreword by acclaimed mountaineer and filmmaker Pat Morrow puts Kain's adventures, explorations and appreciation of nature into a contemporary context, ensuring that the exploits of this remarkable individual remain part of international mountain culture for years to come. "Where The Clouds Can Go," the dramatic story of this uncommon man, is a mountaineering classic that shatters the boundaries of the genre.'-Bernadette McDonald, author of "Tomaz Humar" and past Vice-President of Mountain Culture at The Banff Center and former Director of The Banff Mountain Film and Book Festivals.

Originally settled by Irish, German, and English pioneers, the Barrington area has a long history of industrious and courageous citizens. In the early 1800s, these settlers laid the foundation for the Barrington of today: a colorful community beloved by residents and visitors. In a tribute to this town's heritage, Voices of Barrington profiles the people who have made-and who continue to make-Barrington a place rich with character and small-town charm. In this collection, the men and women who recount stories of times past and present offer a behind-the-scenes look at how they overcame obstacles and helped to shape their community. Readers discover that the barber down the street also struggled through the Great Depression, and that the brew-pub owner moved entire buildings in order to establish his business. Historic photographs from the Barrington Fire Department, library, daily newspaper, and the contributors' own family collections highlight the stories. The result is an intimate portrait of a typical-and extraordinary-American town.

Rory Stewart's moving account of his walk across Afghanistan in January 2002 was immediately hailed as a classic. Caught between hostile nations, warring factions and competing ideologies, at the time Afghanistan was in turmoil following the US invasion. Travelling entirely on foot and following the inaccessible mountainous route once taken by the Mogul Emperor, Babur the Great, Stewart was nearly defeated by the extreme, hostile conditions. Only with the help of an unexpected companion and the generosity of the people he met on the way did he survive to report back with unique insight on a region closed to the world by twenty-four years of war. Winner of the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Award and the Spirit of Scotland Award and shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award, the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize and the Scottish Book of the Year Prize.
