The Man Who Quit Money
The Man Who Quit Money
1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 1594485690
Grand Prize Winner of the 2015 Green Book Festival

Mark Sundeen's new book, The Unsettlers, is coming in January 2017 from Riverhead Books

In 2000, Daniel Suelo left his life savings-all thirty dollars of it-in a phone booth. He has lived without money-and with a newfound sense of freedom and security-ever since. The Man Who Quit Money is an account of how one man learned to live, sanely and happily, without earning, receiving, or spending a single cent. Suelo doesn't pay taxes, or accept food stamps or welfare. He lives in caves in the Utah canyonlands, forages wild foods and gourmet discards. He no longer even carries an I.D. Yet he manages to amply fulfill not only the basic human needs-for shelter, food, and warmth-but, to an enviable degree, the universal desires for companionship, purpose, and spiritual engagement. In retracing the surprising path and guiding philosophy that led Suelo into this way of life, Sundeen raises provocative and riveting questions about the decisions we all make, by default or by design, about how we live-and how we might live better.
Snowstruck: In the Grip of Avalanches
Snowstruck
In the Grip of Avalanches
Paperback      ISBN: 0156032546

Every year around the globe, people cross paths with avalanches--some massive, some no deeper than a pizza box--with deadly results. Avalanche expert Jill Fredston stalks these so-called freaks of nature, forecasting where and when they will strike, deliberately triggering them with explosives, teaching potential victims how to stay alive, and leading rescue efforts when tragedy strikes.

In Snowstruck, Fredston draws on decades of personal experience to take "avalanches out of the statistical realm and into the human one" (Skiing Magazine): a skier making what may prove his final decision, a victim buried so tightly that he can't move a finger, rescuers racing both time and weather, forecasters treading the line between reasonable risk and danger. Fredston brings to life the awesome forces of nature that can turn the mountains deadly--and the equally inexo­rable forces of human nature that lure us time and again into treacherous terrain.

How to Catch a Pig
Lots of Cool Stuff Guys Used to Know But Forgot about the Great Outdoors
Paperback      ISBN: 0061688495

The Lost Lore of a Man's Life contains step-by-step instructions on how to do a myriad of things men are rarely taught nowadays. Denis Boyles has collected loads of vintage wisdom in this one essential and charming volume which will delight men of all ages. Now they will know the proper way to transform a typical coaster bike into a steam-powered motorcycle as readers of Boy Mechanic (1905) did; buy and sort fishing hooks, as the June 1886 issue of Hunting & Fishing Monthly reports; build a dream cabin in the woods. Donald Tennant knew back in 1899, and so did those men who read him and followed his instructions; survive as a working man-from the factory-supplied canteen to the wife-supplied bread. This was the subject of the U.S. Government's 1901 booklet, Modern Workers of the Modern Age; distinguish deer from moose tracks. The Book of the Moose (1909) told how.aThe entire canon of a manly education can be found in the histories of our great-grandparents' social and working lives. The Lost Lore of a Man's Life recovers that lost wisdom, adapts and recapitulates it for modern men, but still retains a compelling sense of authoritative, amusing, entertaining, and offbeat authenticity. Above all, the book will reflect the unpretentious affability of Denis Boyles'A Man's Life: The Complete Instructions and The Modern Man's Guide to Life.

Potentially life-threatening circumstances can arise anywhere, anytime, and Clint Emerson--former Navy SEAL--wants you to be prepared.

100 Deadly Skills contains proven self-defense skills, evasion tactics, and immobilizing maneuvers--modified from the world of black ops--to help you take action in numerous "worst case" scenarios from escaping a locked trunk, to making an improvised Taser, to tricking facial recognition software. With easy-to-understand instructions and illustrations, Emerson outlines in detail many life-saving strategies and teaches you how to think and act like a member of the special forces.

This complete course in survival teaches you how to prevent tracking, evade a kidnapping, elude an active shooter, rappel down the side of a building, immobilize a bad guy, protect yourself against cyber-criminals, and much more--all using low-tech to "no-tech" methods. Clear, detailed, and presented in an easy-to-understand and execute format, 100 Deadly Skills is an invaluable resource. Because let's face it, when danger is imminent, you don't have time for complicated instructions.
