The geography book sounds interesting. I read a report once that said the reason Europe developed as a bunch of small countries with their own separate languages & cultures was that the major rivers all run directly to the sea, rather than interconnecting the way the Missouri, Ohio, Mississippi etc rivers in North America come together. Europe’s lack of geographical interconnectivity led to isolated cultures, which had predictable political and historical results.The second is ever so slightly outdated but an eye-opening perspective of various counties and their geopolitical viewpoints. Very interesting details of relationships between countries, territories and feuds between religions and tribes, how may borders were formed as "lines on a map" by English royalty and China's global presence and continued outreach and investment.
Horned Moons & Savage Santas is a collection of some of the best stories ever written by such re-nowned sporting legends as Ernest Hemingway, Robert Ruark, Gordon MacQuarrie, Howard Walden, Jack O’Connor, Arthur Macdougall, Robert Murphy, and many, many more. With more than fifty superb illustrations, this book is destined to become a classic in its own right.
