ANOTHER LOST WHOLE MOOSE CATALOGUE A Yukon Way of Knowledge

By Lost Moose Collective, Lost Moose Publishing

Lost Moose. Good. 1992. First Edition; Second Printing. Softcover. 0969461208 . Oversize softcover 15" tall. Pages are very good, although cover has some wear and tear. Pages are clean, no markings, some corner curling, corner creases, age tanning to page edges, some wrinkling to bottom corner of first few pages. Cover has curling at corners, fairly heavy curling to bottom corner, several creases, scuffing and a few small edge tears. B/w illustrations. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall; 156 pages; In a roundabout way, the Lost Whole Moose has come to represent the exploration of all that is really enjoyable about living in the Yukon--it's delights and challenges as well as its hardships. The Lost Moose is really a kind of quest, and includes the discoveries that people make along the way. It is the search for the perfect northern lifestyle. As legend has it, the search takes people down many paths. Some have been here seemingly forever. Others start by spending just a winter, learning to deal with the cold and heating with wood. They may become fascinated with the northern lights, find enjoyment in going for walks at 40 below and start thinking about building a place of their own someday. Then it's the summertime exploration of rivers and forest, reveling 'neath the midnight sun, trying to get a piece of land and learning about land claims and politics. Along the way learning bush crafts and skills needed to cope with town life. As the revelations continue, people are exposed to the many styles of life which are available in this land, including the relaxed practice of horizontal living. As horizontalists, whether full-time, part-time or just sometimes, they learn to enjoy a state of bliss with this life and this land. Experience (and legend) tells us this land is not for everyone; many people arrive and many leave. But for those who like what is here, it seems they keep on liking it. Their search for their Lost Moose, as legend would have it, is still in progress, and that's what this book is all about. (800) .

FRIED TWINKIES, BUCKLE BUNNIES, & BULL RIDERS A Year Inside the Professional Bull Riders Tour

By Peter, Josh

Rodale Books. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket. 2005. First Edition. Hardcover. 1594861196 . HC/DJ - near fine. Ex-library book, but still in great condition - pages and cover clean, tight and unmarked. Laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Jacket has a little scuffing to laminate. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 336 pages; "*Starred Review* The argument can be made that the Professional Bull Riders Tour may be the most dangerous, least financially rewarding of all sporting endeavors. Skull fractures, punctured lungs, and destroyed knees are all relatively routine injuries. At least now there is a million-dollar payout for the overall champion each season, but even that is in deferred dollars. Peter, a sportswriter for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, spent the 2004 season with the PBR tour and offers a penetrating portrait of a sport that stands at that awkward stage between minor league and national acceptance. The riders represent many nations besides America--some say Troy Dunn, an Australian, was the best ever--and Peter gives a glimpse into many of their lives. Much space is devoted to defending champion Justin McBride, a media darling with his boyish good looks who is only now realizing that the toughest part of being a champ is staying a champ. The book's title? Fried Twinkies are a genuine but rare concession delicacy, and buckle bunnies are the young ladies who curry the favor of the young macho men who ride the bulls. This is a tough book to walk away from. The icon of book-length sports journalism, John Feinstein, would be proud to include it in his body of work. It's that good. " [530] .
