All Aboard: The Complete North American Train Travel Guide

All Aboard: The Complete North American Train Travel Guide

All Aboard: first published in 1995, and here completely revised and updated: is much more than just a mile-by-mile scenery guide for train travelers. Written both for veteran train travelers and those considering their first rail journey, it will make any trip smoother and more enjoyable with its insightful travel trips and information about how railroads operate. With trains attracting new riders in record numbers because of the economy, the price of gasoline, and the delays and crowding that are now the norm when traveling by air, the time is perfect for a new edition of All Aboard. Here you can learn how and why the first railroads came about, the building of America's trans-continental railroad, and how individual trains are operated. The author also offers advice that can only come from a veteran traveler: booking trips, finding the lowest fares, avoiding pitfalls, packing for an overnight trip, what to do on board, whom to tip and how much. All Aboard is the ultimate guide to American train travel and its unique history and culture.

World Heritage Sites

World Heritage Sites

In 1959, UNESCO launched an international campaign to safeguard the world's most important cultural, natural and mixed sites, which led to the first World Heritage List. In clear text and photographs describing each site, this updated and revised edition of World Heritage Sites details all 936 sites on the list, including the 25 added in 2011.

Covering 153 countries, the World Heritage List is a valuable tool in the battle to preserve cultural and natural heritage. Its strict criteria mean only the most extraordinary and important sites make it onto the list, such as the Statue of Liberty, the Great Barrier Reef, the Historic Center of Vienna, Vatican City, the Bikini Atoll Nuclear Test Site, Robben Island, Ancient Damascus, and the Tower of London. At the same time, failure to maintain the criteria can result in being delisted, as was the Dresden Elbe Valley in 2009.

Annapurna: The First Conquest of an 8,000-Meter Peak

Annapurna: The First Conquest of an 8,000-Meter Peak

In 1950, when no mountain taller than 8,000 meters had ever been climbed, Maurice Herzog led an expedition of French climbers to the summit of an 8,075-meter (26,493-foot) Himalayan peak called Annapurna. The route up Annapurna had never been charted, and Herzog and his team had to locate the mountain using crude maps, pick out a possible line of ascent, and go for the summit. Annapurna is the unforgettable account of this heroic climb and its harrowing aftermath, including a nightmare descent while suffering from frostbite and snow blindness. Herzog’s masterful narrative is one of the great mountain-adventure stories of all time.

OXO Good Grips LiquiSeal Travel Mug

OXO Good Grips LiquiSeal Travel Mug

Drinks stay hot or cold for up to seven hours in this insulated, double-walled, stainless-steel travel mug from OXO. Plus, three silicone seals in the lid opening prevent leaks and drips from spoiling clothes on the way to work. One hand is all that’s needed to operate this mug: a button in the middle of the lid opens the drinking seal (a red background alerts the user to its open position); and then closes the device. Letting a few seconds lapse before closing will allow liquid in the spout area to drain back inside, thus preventing drips.
