Strip-building--assembling a pile of thin wood strips into a functional hull--has been a popular canoe-building method for many years. Now boatbuilder Nick Schade, an engineer by training and a self-professed sea kayaking addict, has refined this time-tested method to build the more complex shapes of sea kayaks. The method is simple, forgiving, allows a liberal amount of design flexibility, and requires a minimum number of tools. It´s also relatively inexpensive: about $500 to $600 for one of the designs discussed here--one-quarter the price of a factory-built model. In The Strip-Built Sea Kayak, Schade presents full plans for three elegant designs inspired by the grace and seaworthiness of the Inuit and Aleut skin boats. Profusely illustrated instructions provide the details that will guide you through the process.A complete novice will be able to construct a finished kayak after reading nothing but this book. And for an experienced builder, the techniques here can be expanded to create the perfect boat for you.Strip-building is the most flexible, forgiving, and attractive way to build a small wood boat. Professional sea kayak builder Nick Schade presents complete plans and measurements for three kayaks:Great Auk, a fast, stable, comfortable single for beginnersGuillemot, a beautiful, high-performance single for intermediate and skilled paddlersGuillemot Double, a spacious kayak for twoHere´s all the information you´ll need to build a sturdy, elegant sea kayak, from setting up shop to making a paddle.´´Nick Schade has managed to raise the craft of strip-building to the art of graphic design in wood.´´--Sea Kayaker

Now into its seventh edition, and written by Philip Briggs, the world´s leading writer of guidebooks to Africa, Bradt´s Rwanda has been the go-to guide for visitors to this historical and resurgent ´land of a thousand hills´ for nearly two decades, and it continues to be in a class of its own when it comes to in-depth information on this emerald slice of Central Africa. With freshly researched and updated details on developments across the country, Bradt´s Rwanda includes information on the ongoing revival and rhino repopulation of Akagera National Park, up-to-date maps of rapidly modernising Kigali, and a newly expanded chapter on excursions into the neighbouring DRC. In this new edition are extensive and recently updated maps and natural history information, details of kayak and canoe excursions on Lake Kivu and the Mukungwa River, all you need to know about tracking not only mountain gorillas in Rwanda in Volcanoes National Park but also lowland gorillas in Congo, and information about overnight stays on a tea plantation at Sorwathe or Gisovu. Also covered are Nyungwe Forest National Park, where a wealth of endemic birds and primates inhabit the largest surviving montane forest in East Africa; Nyanza, where the hilltop Rukari Palace Museum marks the site of the old Mwami´s (King´s) palace; and the National Museum of Rwanda, the top cultural site in Rwanda´s second city, Huye. Coverage of nearby cities and national parks in the neighbouring DRC has been expanded since the last edition, providing all the necessary information to take a thrilling and increasingly popular excursion into Rwanda´s enormous and poorly understood neighbour. Rwanda continues to change and develop at an unprecedented pace, and there´s hardly a more accessible slice of Africa to be found anywhere on the continent. It´s no less intriguing for the convenience, however, and Rwanda´s superlative natural attractions seem to improve by the day, with growing animal populations and an on-going reintroduction program. Having now gone through nearly 18 years of editions, Bradt´s Rwanda is not only the most in-depth guide available, but also the guide with the longest history in the country itself.
Here are the unforgettable adventures you can experience. There are activities you can pursue for a day, a week, or a month. Whatever your inclination may be, the pay-off is in the remarkable regenerative power of a classic river trip, a cattle drive, an Indian ceremony, or an archaeological dig. New Mexico offers thousands of miles of maintained trails for you to hike, bike, and ride on horseback. If you´re a water-lover, a river trip might lure you into a canoe, kayak, or whitewater raft. You can fly-fish for trout or troll for stripers. There are evocative back roads for you to explore by jeep and mammoth vistas to gaze upon from a glider or the gondola of a hot-air balloon. You can visit historic and modern Indian and cowboy sites. You can ski in the winter, photograph wild flowers in springtime, climb cool mountains in summer, and explore canyons and high desert in fall, when mornings and evenings are cool, days warm, and changing leaves enhance the countryside with a radiant glow. New Mexico is as much a cultural experience as it is a great place to hike, bike, ski or fish. New Mexico has a higher percentage of Indian and Hispanic residents than any other state - roughly 45% - and the influence of both groups is strikingly evident in terms of place names, art and architecture, foods and customs. One could make a pretty good case for New Mexico being the most ´´foreign” of all states. The state´s tri-culturalism is quite simply older than in the rest of the country. The Spanish explorer Coronado was combing New Mexico in search of the Seven Cities of Cibola in 1540 - 192 years before the birth of George Washington and nearly seven decades before the English laid the foundations of Jamestown in 1607. This guide focusses on the North-Central part of New Mexico, which is the region of the Rocky Mountains. Cimarron, Angel Fire, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Taos, Albuquerque -these are some of the areas covered here. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sandra Parker.
