Trophy Rams of the Brooks Range: Plus Secrets of a Sheep and Mountain Goat Guide
Alaska Wilderness: Exploring the Central Brooks Range
Alaska Wilderness: Exploring the Central Brooks
Exploring the great wilderness of Alaska's Brooks Range was Robert Marshall's joy and delight during the decade between 1929 and 1939. Marshall traveled this spectacular country, from the Upper Koyukuk drainage to the Arctic Divide, making maps, recording scientific data, and exalting in the beauty of that incredibly pristine landscape. Although his early death at thirty-eight ended an exceptional life too early, he left journals and letters to describe his favorite place on earth. These were edited by his brother George Marshall and were compiled to create this classic of environmental literature, now in its third edition after nearly fifty years in print and with a new foreword by Rick Bass.

Country Brook Design | 1 Inch Martingale Heavyduty
Is your dog slipping out of its collar when you go for walks? Try a no-slip, adjustable Martingale collar from Country Brook Design! These collars are made to prevent your dog from slipping out of its collar while being walked on a leash and can also be used as a training collar. The Martingale collar is often referred to as a humane choke collar. They feature a twin loop design that works by tightening around your dog's neck whenever it tries to remove its head from the collar. Then, the Martingale will loosen again when your dog stops struggling against it. The limited closure of the Martingale collar prevents it from becoming too tight. A no-slip, adjustable-choke collar is an excellent solution for sight-hounds who slip out of their collars. All of our collars are handcrafted to your exact specifications after the sale. Please note that we will ship within four business days of receiving payment and size. By adjusting the metal slide, open the collar loop wide. Slip it over your dog's neck and decrease size until you can comfortably slip only a couple of fingers under the collar. The unique limited closure prevents the choke from becoming too tight.

The poems of Robert Frost, with an introductory essay, "The constant symbol", Hardcover
The poems of Robert Frost, with an introductory
Excerpt: There seems to be some such folk saying as that easy to understand is contemptible, hard to understand irritating. The implication is that just easy enough, just hard enough, right in the middle, is what literary criticism ought to foster. A glance backward over the past convinces me otherwise. The Iliad, Odyssey, and Aeneid are easy. The Purgatorio is said to be hard. The Song of Songs is hard. There have been works lately to surpass all records for hardness. Some knotted riddles tell that may be worth our trouble. But hard or easy seems to me of slight use as a test either way.

Two Old Women: An Alaska Legend of Betrayal, Courage and Survival
Two Old Women: An Alaska Legend of Betrayal,
Based on an Athabascan Indian legend passed along for many generations from mothers to daughters of the upper Yukon River Valley in Alaska, this is the suspenseful, shocking, ultimately inspirational tale of two old women abandoned by their tribe during a brutal winter famine.Though these women have been known to complain more than contribute, they now must either survive on their own or die trying. In simple but vivid detail, Velma Wallis depicts a landscape and way of life that are at once merciless and starkly beautiful. In her old women, she has created two heroines of steely determination whose story of betrayal, friendship, community, and forgiveness "speaks straight to the heart with clarity, sweetness, and wisdom" (Ursula K. Le Guin).
