In a series of evocative, informative pieces from around the racing world, Nicholas Godfrey visits 20 different countries on six continents, from unforgettable high-profle events at major racecourses--such as the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs or the Dubai World Cup at billion-dollar Meydan--to racing venues on the road less traveled--like Morocco, Uruguay and Switzerland, where they race on a frozen lake in St. Moritz. Among those he encounters are America's mighty mare Zenyatta, Triple Crown hero American Pharoah and Black Caviar, the "Wonder from Down Under." As well as reliving his experiences, Godfrey prefaces each postcard with a how-to guide for those wishing to follow in his footsteps.

From fairy tales to photography, nowhere is the complexity of human-animal relationships more apparent than in the creative arts. Art illuminates the nature and significance of animals in modern, Western thought, capturing the complicated union that has long existed between the animal kingdom and us. In Beauty and the Beast, authors Arluke and Bogdan explore this relationship through the unique lens of photo postcards. This visual medium offers an enormous and relatively untapped archive to document their subject compellingly.

When Rome was founded in 1834, Col. Daniel R. Mitchell suggested the name because of the surrounding hills, much like those of ancient Rome, Italy. Known today as "The City of Seven Hills," Rome has been voted one of the most livable cities in the South. It is the medical center of Northwest Georgia with a population of over 30,000, and a thriving community with abundant opportunities for business, education, and recreation. Historic views of Rome, seen through the eyes of the traveling postcard photographer, fill the pages of this engaging volume. Longtime residents of the community will delight in remembering area landmarks, including the old Clock Tower, Shorter College, Berry College, Myrtle Hill Cemetery, the downtown business section of Broad Street, and the neighboring communities of Lindale and Cave Spring.

One Hundred Siberian Postcards

Siberia: a vast and ancient territory, a mystery to the world outside its borders. Rick Wirick and his wife have gone to Siberia to adopt a baby girl. Rather than produce a straightforward account of this journey, so profound and personal in itself, Wirick has chosen instead to absorb Siberia, to immerse himself in its history, legends, social reality and natural splendour in order to evoke for his new daughter the grandeur of her birthplace. In one hundred interlocking vignettes, Wirick has created a sophisticated and passionate vision. Personal in conception, unique in structure, One Hundred Siberian Postcards is an inspiring and unusual introduction to a very far-away land. 'Wirick combines the lyrical with the unexpected in perfectly calibrated prose.' Rose George 'Tales from a parallel universe which is also strangely our own ... a genre-busting masterpiece.' Hugo Williams 'Some years ago, Richard Wirick and his wife (who already had two children of their own) adopted a baby girl from a Siberian orphanage. One Hundred Siberian Postcards is a gift for her, evoking the scenic grandeur of her birthplace, alongside the ramshackle quality of much Russian life ... comprising folk tales, beliefs, customs, moments from Siberian history, extracts from Russian writers, reflections on childhood and consciousness, and dreams, with a touch of magic realism, as when someone watching a case being X-rayed at an airport sees "dozens of little men ... sawing timber inside the Samsonite".' Tom Aitken, TLS 'Richard Wirick's deeply felt, beautifully written palm-of-the-hand-tales that make up 100 Siberian Postcards are as luminous as Basho's Narrow Road to Oku and as moving as the Hemingway vignettes of In Our Time. Yet Wirick's profoundly moving book is unlike anything else I've read; an ode to Siberia as much as it is to the human condition.' Samantha Gillison, author of The King of America 'Attentive and compassionate, Richard Wirick has journeyed through Siberia and returned with it. These 'postcards' provide startling glimpses into the fraught, yet tenacious, Russian spirit.' John Witte, Editor of Northwest Review 'Richard Wirick is an insurance lawyer with the soul - and the pen - of a poet.' Anna Reid, author of Borderland: A Journey through the History of Ukraine 'Compassionate and literate ... He has a mystic's confidence in the power of his imagination to prise bits of truth out of the frigid landscape.' Caroline McGinn, The New Statesman 'The best postcards are like poems: reptilian in a different way, they shed their excess skin of details and dates, and dart in on a little narrative, a clear image that speaks of the writer's experience. Richard Wirick has a it down to a fine art. An insurance lawyer from Los Angeles, he and his wife travelled to Siberia to adopt a baby girl. Having immersed himself in the landscape and culture, he returned with enough stories and still lifes to make 100 perfect postcards.' Tom Gatti, The Times
