Nancy Blakey has lived and loved the outdoors of the Pacific Northwest her entire life. From coastal British Colombia to coastal Oregon, she knows how to fully enjoy the space where the ocean meets the land. In By the Shore, she has highlighted an amazing variety of fun and educational activities for each and every season, along with some delicious recipes for the seafood you catch yourself (with Blakey's guidance, if you need it). Full of beautiful coastal photos, helpful illustrations, and simple maps to guide your outdoor adventures, this is a nature guide that you'll use season after season, year after year.
For the parks!
In the untamed landscape of Alaska, anything can kill you. For the Allbright family, the wilderness represents a chance for a new beginning. But as thirteen year old Leni soon learns, her mother's unquestioned devotion to her father is more dangerous than the cold.
This is a collection of twelve short stories about life in rural West Virginia. The stories are achingly raw; the writing is beautiful. Pancake's work remains the most authentic representation of the Appalachian spirit that I have ever read.
