Tiny New York The Smallest Things in the Biggest City

Tiny New York The Smallest Things in the Biggest City

Author: Suzi Siegel Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/04/2020

Because in a giant city, sometimes the smallest things get overlooked. Tiny New York peeks into the city's nooks and crannies to find the little things that tell the real New York story. Because in New York, Tiny isn't cute. It's tough. Tiny doesn't wait for handouts. It hustles. Tiny isn't insignificant. It's precise. Tiny isn't a jack-of-all-trades. It's the master of one. There are plenty of books about New York City. But there has never been a book about the smallest things in the biggest city.

The Sharks of Lake Nicaragua True Tales of Adventure, Travel, and Fishing

The Sharks of Lake Nicaragua True Tales of Adventure, Travel, and Fishing

Author: Randy Wayne White Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/04/2020

Whether he's engaging in mock aerial combat or riding an Iditarod sled, Randy Wayne White is one of America's most adventurous travelers. In this collection he studies anti-terrorist driving techniques, dives for golf balls in an alligator-infested pond, hunts his fellow man with a paint gun, ice-fishes for walleye with X-ray-stunned night-crawlers, and goes pig-shooting with Dr. Pavlov. With self-effacing optimism, White captures joys and fears of wandering the earth's surface with an eclectic cast of fellow travelers: a frog that won't jump, a group of expatriate Brits who developed an interesting cure for road jaundice, and even a mad Australian scientist. Though he rarely finds what he's looking for--like the legendary landlocked bull sharks of Lake Nicaragua--he develops a Zen-like passion for the means, and a rare ability to revel in the rib-aching humor of each exotic trip.
