American road racing began just after World War II and quickly blossomed into a movement. The Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) and the United States Auto Club (USAC), clubs that became fierce rivals in the 1950s and 1960s, were the principal race promoters. Race tracks popped up everywhere, at first on city streets, then at airports and U.S. Air Force bases, and finally at purpose-built circuits like Road America and Laguna Seca.Although most of the cars that competed in American road racing were built in Europe, an underground movement sprang up of "special builders" who constructed their racers in home garages and small-town machine shops. Some were so homely and slow that only the builders could love them. Others trounced every Ferrari in sight and are now on the wish lists of wealthy collectors the world over.Vintage American Road Racing Cars 1950-1970 is the first book devoted exclusively to American road racing cars of all types and sizes. Hundreds of race cars built in America have never before been mentioned in print, and this book chronicles those and other cars with vintage and modern photography, specifications, memorabilia, and the stories and characters behind each car.About the AuthorHarold Pace's writing and photography has appeared in such magazines as Automobile Quarterly, Class & Sportscar, Excellence, Sports Car International, Vintage Racecar Journal, and others. He lives in Weatherford, Texas. Mark Brinker is a vintage race car enthusiast who has raced at the Monterey Historics. He is a doctor with three published medical textbooks and 70+ published scientific papers. He hails from Houston, Texas.

This book is the most comprehensive account on the spread of vehicle tracks on hill land in northern Scotland that has occurred since the mid 1950s. It reviews timing, numbers, locations, distribution and impacts including run-off, soils and vegetation. Then it provides an impartial analysis of the generally low standards of construction and reinstatement, with recommendations to minimise impacts and maximise reinstatement. Included is a brief history of public concern about tracks. This culminated in a petition and debate in the Scottish Parliament and a decision by the Government Minister to hold a consultative review of planning procedures relevant to the control of tracks. The current book constitutes a sound factual baseline and store of technical information, richly illustrated with 58 colour photographs. This will benefit all, including the government, planning officers, landowners and the public who appreciate and value the Scottish countryside and wish to leave this priceless heritage in good heart for the benefit of future generations. Unfortunately a recent 'good practice guide' published by Scottish Natural Heritage is inadequate.

Elena Wright Maguire has a problem: for nearly two decades, she’s used sheer will to hold together her safe, predictable, and mostly fulfilling life. Then she’s involved in a fender bender and all bets are off. She’s forced to confront a tragedy from long ago that threatens the sense of security she’s worked so hard to create. But as the aftershocks of the past unfold, it seems they just might have something to offer—for Elena and for us—in the journey of navigating the sometimes heartbreaking challenges of the here and now. Set in the foothills of Upstate New York’s Adirondack Mountains, and spanning events over four decades, M. Reed McCall’s humorous, poignant, and endearing novel is a tender foray into the emotional landscape of family, friendship, and the kind of love that transcends boundaries, weaving an inspiring tale about what it means to hang on before learning to let go . . . and remembering how to keep living when you lose someone you love.

Australia's freight transport system now has the highest proportion of truck use of any developed country in the world, and with New Zealand, its cities are heavily dependent on cars. Back on Track considers the historic, economic and political issues that have led to this situation, and concludes that the emergence of such a strongly road-oriented system has not been in the national interest, on both economic and environmental grounds. It develops a detailed analysis of Australia's 'road transport deficit'. The authors suggest that rail is the neglected element in Australian and New Zealand transport systems and despite a history of 'policy paralysis', they offer a rail-based ten point plan that could see both countries' transport systems 'back on track'. Using new data on transportation trends from Australia and around the world, the book sets out a vision for the future of freight and inter-capital transport in Australia and New Zealand, and offers innovative transport strategies for each of the major cities in both countries.
