The Kayak Coaches´ Manifesto:An Alternative Approach to High Performance Kayaking Dari Y. Fisher
Kein Fluss bedeutet dem Südafrikaner Fisher mehr. In ihm fließt seine Vergangenheit. Diese Stromschnellen haben ihn gelehrt, die Unwegsamkeiten des Lebens zu überwinden. THE ULTIMATE RIDE ist eine Reise voll epischer Schönheit, Selbstfindung und lebensbedrohlicher Abenteuer. Fisher beweist, dass er nicht nur einer der besten und ambitioniertesten Athleten der Welt ist, er ist auch einer der verrücktesten. ´Es ist eine andere Art von Kajakfilm, in dem sich die Charaktere im Verlauf des Filmes entwickeln und in dem man sieht, wie sie die physischen und psychischen Herausforderungen unseres Lebens überwinden´, sagt Fisher.

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.

An exhilarating journey of natural renewal through a year with MacArthur fellow Carl Safina.Beginning in his kayak in his home waters of eastern Long Island, Carl Safina´s The View from Lazy Point takes us through the four seasons to the four points of the compass, from the high Arctic south to Antarctica, across the warm belly of the tropics from the Caribbean to the west Pacific, then home again. We meet Eskimos whose way of life is melting away, explore a secret global seed vault hidden above the Arctic Circle, investigate dilemmas facing foraging bears and breeding penguins, and sail to formerly devastated reefs that are resurrecting as fish graze the corals algae-free.´´Each time science tightens a coil in the slack of our understanding,´´ Safina writes, ´´it elaborates its fundamental discovery: connection.´´He shows how problems of the environment drive very real matters of human justice, well-being, and our prospects for peace.In Safina´s hands, nature´s continuous renewal points toward our future. His lively stories grant new insights into how our world is changing, and what our response ought to be. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Todd McLaren.

A spellbinding first novel about a young boy´s fascination with the wonders of the seashore during a summer that will change his life. One moonlit night, 13-year-old Miles O´Malley slips out of his house, packs up his kayak, and goes exploring on the flats of Puget Sound. But what begins as an ordinary hunt for starfish, snails, and clams is soon transformed by an astonishing sight: a beached giant squid. As the first person to ever see a giant squid alive, the speed-reading, Rachel Carson-obsessed insomniac instantly becomes a local curiosity. When he later finds a rare deepwater fish in the tidal waters near his home, and saves a dog from drowning, he is hailed as a prophet. The media hovers and everyone wants to hear what Miles has to say. But Miles is really just a teenager on the verge of growing up, infatuated with the girl next door, worried that his bickering parents will divorce, and fearful that everything, even the bay he loves, is shifting from him. While the sea continues to offer up discoveries from its mysterious depths, Miles struggles to deal with the difficulties that attend the equally mysterious process of growing up. In this unforgettable, beguiling novel, we witness the dramatic sea change for both Miles and the coastline that he adores over the course of a summer, one that will culminate with the highest tide in 50 years. 1.
