Most people dream of packing in their humdrum city life, selling up and heading off into the unknown for a life of adventure. For Ruth Miller and Alan Davies this dream became a reality, albeit with a twist; they decided to pack in their jobs, sell their house and take on the ultimate birder's challenge - to smash the world record for the number of species seen in one calendar year. This book is the story of their great expedition, searching for birds from Ecuador to Ethiopia via Argentina, Australia and Arizona. We follow this birding odyssey as they rachet up the species and the stamps in their passports, sharing in amazing birding experiences such as monkey-hunting Harpy Eagles in the Brazilian rain forest, seedsnipes in the Peruvian highlands and lekking bustards in South Africa, all leading to the ultimate question - will they break the magic 4,000? Written in an accessible style, this book will be of great interest to birders, readers of travel literature, and to people who simply enjoy a good adventure!

Joyride

A Son's Unlikely Journey to His Mother's Heart

Joyride is a heartwarming memoir of how a young man reconnects with his journalist mother both before and after her death through the archives of her weekly newspaper columns. Author Craig Forrest's life in print began when he was only five years old. His mother, Libby, wrote a humor column in the local newspaper in America's oldest seashore resort town, Cape May, New Jersey. Craig and his brother, Keith, became frequent subjects of their mother's Erma Bombeck-like writings. Their mother's other topics came from the news she gathered while riding around the shore on her three-wheeled bicycle. Her column, appropriately titled "Joyride", featured useful insights, humorous encounters, and the wit and wisdom that comes from living each day and raising a family. As he grew up, Craig learned more about his mother by rereading her work. When he returned home to care for Libby in the final ravages of Lou Gehrig's disease, Craig spent the evenings reliving his childhood through her columns. The writings comforted him as he watched his mother waste away, and gave him the strength he needed to come to grips with the possibility of his own death from Hodgkin's disease. Joyride is a memoir and a loving tribute by a son to his mother-a poignant story reminiscent of Tuesdays with Morrie and The Color of Water.
