  2. John Terry McConnell - Running with Asthma: An Asthmatic Runner's Memoir
    As a child, John Terry McConnell felt limited; his asthma made playing sports difficult, and being a distance runner seemed impossible. When he got his first inhaler at the age of fifteen, he discovered that distance running was possible for him. He joined his school's track and cross-country teams and, thanks to a great coach, soon excelled as a distance runner. A severe asthma attack in college ended his running career-until, in his thirties, he decided to try again and even became a coach. His troubles resurfaced in his forties, and while it required some major life changes, he resumed running in his late fifties. Even after a case of pneumonia at sixty-five, he still runs to this day. More than a motivational memoir, "Running with Asthma" explicitly describes how he created a personal exercise program that helped him safely manage his asthma and achieve his running goals. He learned how to deal with the environmental factors that triggered his condition, practiced deep breathing techniques, and properly paced himself so he could successfully run the distance with his asthma. He started out slow and easy. He surprised himself with how fast and how far he could run!

  4. John R McKay - The Journal
    A contemporary crime thriller full of mystery and suspense, 'The Journal' takes the reader from the streets of modern day England to the battlefields of early twentieth century France. It is the First World War, April 1917, and on the eve of the Battle of Arras, in an underground holding area, a British soldier is found dead in suspicious circumstances, leaving his war weary commanding officer with a problem on how to investigate it so close to the action. Fast forward to 2012 and to Northern England. As Danny Cooke, an average young man, is trying to come to terms with the sudden loss of his girlfriend in a hit and run accident, he is informed that he has been mentioned in the will of a member of the British aristocracy and must travel to London for the will reading. There he is given a seventy year old journal that will offer an explanation as to why he is one of the beneficiaries of the stranger's fortune. Whilst in London, Danny is targeted by a professional contract killer and flees to Paris whilst the police detective assigned to the case carries out investigations and attempts to apprehend his attacker. Safely in Paris, Danny reads the journal which he finds has been written by the aunt of the late baronet who was a member of the WVS during the Second World War. In it she reveals family secrets that leave Danny shell-shocked and with the realisation that things that happened in this strange family's past have had a direct effect on his own life. With the killer in pursuit, Danny soon realises that moving to Paris may not have been such a good idea after all. With flashbacks to the First World War and the London Blitz, Danny must come to terms with his loss whilst trying to avoid a killer. The Journal, the first novel by John R McKay, is a crime mystery containing contemporary mystery and suspense.

  6. Dr. Anthony B. Badger - Confronting Calvinism: A Free Grace Refutation and ...
    This work is foundational for those who are just beginning their Christian experience as well as the well-informed Bible student who is interested in effective evangelism and the topic of salvation. It's the ideal book for college and seminary level courses on Soteriology in that it gives a lesser known, but extensively biblical, view of the so-called "Doctrines of Grace," as taught by Reformed Theology and identified by the acronym known as TULIP (i.e., Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and Perseverance of the Saints). Dr. Badger exposes these teachings for what they are: the abhorrent doctrinal results of the Reformation. In the attempt to reform the Roman Catholic Church a line of thought known as Calvinism, Five Point Calvinism, or Dortian Calvinism developed throughout Europe and England. And for nearly 500 years since Calvinism has run rampant over the teachings of the Bible. John Calvin, one of the leading Reformers followed Augustine's ideas of God's having decisively and unconditionally selected some people, but not others, for eternal salvation. Calvin popularized the notion and it became the skeleton over which the other dogmas were hung for a period of about three-quarters of a century until it was finally solidified at the Synod of Dort, Netherlands, in 1619. The Five Points of Calvinism have become the heart and soul of classical Reformed Theology to this day. Dr. Badger first explains the manner in which theology and truth claims may properly be approached, followed by a brief chapter on the history of the leaders of the Reformation. A biblical view of sin and guilt is then presented, followed by a chapter on the Calvinist's unbiblical view of man's Total Inability to believe the gospel offer. He explains why Total Depravity is not Total Inability to believe and why such teaching obscures the true nature of man as a bearer of the image of God Himself. Two chapters are devoted to the doctrine of Election an

  7. Glenville Whittaker - For Christ's Sake: pressing the refresh button on ...
    'For Christ's sake - pressing the refresh button on the life of Jesus' presents Christ as someone completely different from the familiar figure we are used to. This Jesus did not perform miracles, did not walk on water, and did not rise from the dead. But what he did do was something much more significant: he was able to lead people into a experience of the place where he said God lived, inside each person. Recent scholarship into early Christianity has caused a ferment of new ideas and theories, but now it has run out of steam, because this one hidden ingredient has not been recognized, let alone understood. In uncovering this new understanding, 'For Christ's Sake' is possibly the most controversial book about Jesus ever written. Beside its central theme, 'For Christ's Sake - pressing the refresh button on the life of Jesus' demonstrates how the original view of Jesus' work and teachings, unquestionably accepted by his disciples, flourished for several generations until weakened by its growing distance from the teacher and persecuted by the new church, it faded from view. It looks at the relationship of Jesus with his disciples, especially Mary Magdalene, casting new light on the possibility that she was his partner. It considers the role of John the Baptist as Jesus' mentor and forerunner, and, after the crucifixion, how Paul continued the 'inner experience' teaching while laying the foundations for the new 'church'. The book examines the Dead Sea Scrolls and finds uncanny similarities, not previously brought to public attention, between the beliefs and practices they reveal and those of Jesus and early Christianity. And we compare Jesus with teachers from other traditions, including Buddha, Krishna and Lao Tzu, suggesting that they all taught variations of the same theme. The Gnostic gospels are surveyed, to see how later generations of followers of the inner experience of Jesus tried, and eventually failed, to maintain the flame of the original teaching. Finally

  8. Margaret Hubble - Coalmasters and their connections
    Margaret Hubble is a professional Scottish family history researcher. She was asked to carry out some research into the origins of some family silver, as well as a portrait which had been handed down through the generations. The family was so intriguing that she was soon enmeshed in unravelling their story and with the client's permission, decided to research further and make it into a book. The Ferguson family, who had originated in Ayrshire and were from humble enough beginnings, soon joined the ranks of the better classes. John Ferguson was an engineer and the manager of a coal mine, as well as being father to seven children - four sons and three daughters. The family relocated to Lanarkshire. One of the sons became a coal mine owner, discovered a huge mining seam and became immensely wealthy. Although he married the daughter of a school teacher, looked after his workers and became very well respected in the community, he had a "skeleton in the closet." Two of his brothers also became owners of smaller mines. The youngest son, having been written out of his father's will, mysteriously relocated to the remote Shetland Islands and later moved away to Nova Scotia. It was only after settling there and leaving the mines behind that his path reflected the family's entrepreneurship in a different way. He also became a highly respected citizen, as did his family after him. Money begets money and those in the upper echelons of society moved in the same circles, thus leading to similar connections through marriage. Of the three sisters, two married very well and one married the young parish doctor - after pretending she was ten years younger. But the lives of some of these ladies did not run smoothly. A young sea captain was drowned. Money was lost because of trust put into business ventures with other members of the family. The doctor helped many patients, but contracted tuberculosis himself and died at an early age. The history mainly spans the nineteenth century - a tim

  9. Thomas S. Miller PhD - Programmed to Run: Develop elite running/racing ...
    As a novice 65 years old in his first year of running, our cover runner, John Cahill came to Dr. Miller to learn the physical and mental skills he needed to race a marathon. At 66 in his first marathon he ran a 3:04. At 72, he ran the same marathon in 3:05. As he approached 80, he was still running sub-4hr marathons. Now, in his early 90s, John typically runs a 5K nearly every weekend when he is not traveling around the world. In PROGRAMMED TO RUN, Dr. Miller shares how he developed the concepts that led to John's success - and countless other runners. Simply put, your running/racing potential is grounded in your biomechanical and attentional skills, which are intimately related. This book is a guide for the self-coached runner -regardless of sex, age, body type, or ethnicity - to assess, refine, and "program" optimal running and racing skills, which, as demonstrated by John, can last a lifetime. "After more than a decade of teaching thousands of runners, my staff, students, and I have concluded that PROGRAMMED TO RUN is the best guide to improving your running and racing available today. It is practical, easily understood, and illustrated with interesting and motivating stories based on Tom's own running and racing experiences, field research, and anecdotes of how novice runners transformed themselves into masters of their sport." Curt Munson, the founder of Good Form Running and past president of the National Running Retailers Association (2013). "When this book first came out in 2002, we said in the July/August issue, 'Miller's book is one of the most accessible and practical books we've seen on those minute and intangible elements that make the difference between good and great performances.' Programmed to Run contains timeless guidance and should be part of every serious runner's library today." Jonathan Beverly, Editor, Running Times magazine (2013). "I grew up practicing the elements of elite running technique because Tom was a frequent instructor at my paren

  10. Mr Stuart John Smith - Seven Steps to Heavenly Chipping
    If I was to ask a question such as Q What does the loft of the club dictate when chipping? You would answer A Height and you would be WRONG. What you need to know is why you are wrong and what the loft of the club does dictate when chipping, and reading this book will teach you this and much more. This book will help you to Understand exactly what a chip is as most golfers misunderstand this shot and visualise it incorrectly, thus reducing the chances of playing it well. A chip shot is one from just off the green, where you need to fly the ball over an obstacle such as: Some fairway A bunker A hump or hollow A tier on a green A water hazard You will learn the Seven vital steps that you must repeat for you to hit great chip shots time after time. There are four different techniques that this book covers which are Standard Chip - a standard chip is a shot that has the designated amount of energy the club's loft dictates. We are aiming to strike the ball with the true loft of the club without changing the amount of energy that each club produces to alter the shot. In other words, we are not going to de-loft or open the face at set-up or impact for this chip. The ball will not fly very high nor will it come out low and fast. This chip has a standard flight and roll which is dictated by the club's loft alone. A 7-iron will fly lower and run longer than a pitching wedge. Running/High Energy Chip - This chip or technique is designed to give the ball a lot more energy than the loft of the club would impart on its own. Using a pitching wedge for this technique will ensure the ball will run as much as it would do if you used a 7-iron and employed the technique for a standard chip. Soft Landing Chip - It has a soft flight Lands softly on the green Has a gentle low energy release towards the hole When you have been told to make a putting stroke for your chip, this is the shot you are executing. This shot would normally be used when you have a very fast downhill chip and you nee

  11. John Coombes - Meandering in Mid Devon.: Volume 1 (Meandering Walking ...
    Meandering in Mid Devon contains ten circular walks throughout a mostly rural area. The countryside is alive with wildlife and a magnificent tapestry of multi coloured fields which can be observed from high up in the hills overlooking the Devon Valleys this then fits together like a giant jigsaw puzzle which looks from above like a model village. Then in-between the patchwork quilt effect of the fields are the outlines of the rivers twisting and turning through the valleys sparkling and gleaming in the sunlight. Then as you walk on you encounter charming little villages and hamlets that have beautiful thatched cottages the type you find on the chocolate boxes. The areas of some of these walks can be rough and uneven and on certain sections very muddy, this will be noted in the text which should be checked before leaving home. To stay safe wear the correct footwear for example walking boots will keep the feet dry and give added support to prevent damage to ankles on the uneven ground. Before setting out on your walk make sure you have the correct O.S map and compass with you and maybe advise somebody where you are going and when you are back? Once out then please observe the Country Code, if you take a picnic make sure all the rubbish goes back home. Most important if you have a dog then keep well under control especially in the spring during lambing season, and watch out for the birds nesting low to the ground, a lot of these walks the dog can run free and have as much fun as everybody else in the group. Happy Walking.

  14. mark Wilson - On The Seventh Day
    "God hates you. Regardless of religion, race, sex, sexuality or nationality. He hates all of you. Basically, you are fucked." Irreverent dark humour from the author of Lanarkshire Strays and the dEaDINBURGH series. God is pissed off. He has run out of patience with humans and decided that our time is over. We've had our chance and it's back to the drawing board. "Fuck the lot of them" is his newest gospel. Mo, and Jay, best friends who've fucked up in the past, beg him for one more chance to get the humans back on track. Alongside Mr Saluzar, the head of a global charity foundation, and Nick, The Fallen Angel, they hurtle towards Armageddon and their one chance to prove God wrong. They have seven days to save us. On The Seventh Day contains strong language and religious irreverence which some may find offensive. Praise for On The Seventh Day: "If Irvine Welsh's 'Glue' got The Bible up the duff, you'd have On The Seventh Day." "Seventh Day is the book that John Niven's 'The Second Coming' desperately wanted to be and failed."

  20. John F. Dini - Hunting in a Farmer's World: Celebrating the Mind of an ...
    Hunting in a Farmer's World was the 2014 Independent Publisher Book Awards' National Silver Medalist - Business Books and was named "Best Business Book" in the 2014 New York Book Festival. All men (and women) are created equal, but that doesn't mean that they are all the same. Entrepreneurs are different. Small business owners make up 3% of America s population, but they create two-thirds of the new jobs in our economy. They are hunters, and hunters have provided for others for thousands of years. Management books tell entrepreneurs how to become farmers. They try to teach hunters to run their businesses using a farming cycle. Ancient farming wisdom has been translated into the modern day management tasks of planning, budgeting, standardizing, and measuring. Entrepreneurs hunt. They don't manage. They explore rather than analyze. They build companies with vision, creativity and tenacity; not with policies and procedures. Entrepreneurs are the hunters of the 21st century. If you take on the risks and responsibilities of owning a business, at least it should be fun. From the ambition that captures an entrepreneur and drives him to take the plunge of starting up, to the unexpected pitfalls of runaway success, Hunting in a Farmer's World examines why business owners are different from the people who work for them. John F. Dini draws on thousands of hours of face to face coaching with entrepreneurs, using the personal true stories of successful owners to drive home the challenges, rewards, exhilaration and terror of being a business owner. Hunting in a Farmer's World celebrates the differences that drive entrepreneurs. It is filled with the stories of real business owners who overcame real challenges including those that accompany success. You deserve to run a business in a way that makes sense to you. It s time to stop reading management books, and read an ownership book. It s time to be proud that you are Hunting in a Farmer s World.

    The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money The "Keynesian Revolution" Complete Edition By John Maynard Keynes The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money was written by the English economist John Maynard Keynes. The book, generally considered to be his magnum opus, is largely credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics. Published in February 1936, it sought to bring about a revolution, commonly referred to as the "Keynesian Revolution," in the way economists thought - especially in relation to the proposition that a market economy tends naturally to restore itself to full employment after temporary shocks. Regarded widely as the cornerstone of Keynesian thought, the book challenged the established classical economics and introduced important concepts such as the consumption function, the multiplier, the marginal efficiency of capital, the principle of effective demand and liquidity preference. The central argument of The General Theory is that the level of employment is determined, not by the price of labour as in neoclassical economics, but by the spending of money (aggregate demand). Keynes argues that it is wrong to assume that competitive markets will, in the long run, deliver full employment or that full employment is the natural, self-righting, equilibrium state of a monetary economy. On the contrary, under-employment and under-investment are likely to be the natural state unless active measures are taken. One implication of The General Theory is that a lack of competition is not the fundamental problem and measures to reduce unemployment by cutting wages or benefits are not only hard-hearted but ultimately futile.

  22. Glynn James - Arisen, Omnibus One
    BOOK ONE - FORTRESS BRITAIN When the Zombie Apocalypse came, one country had shut down its borders in response to a major terrorist attack. Now Fortress Britain is the last bastion of the living - with 50 million beleaguered survivors facing down a world of 7 billion animated corpses. And one international team of elite special operators - supremely trained and armed, always the most skilled, resolved, and unstoppable amongst us - are humanity's last best hope for survival... BOOK TWO - MOGADISHU OF THE DEAD Alpha team is tasked with one last desperate operation: they must cross the Atlantic aboard the world's only remaining supercarrier and insert by air into the very middle of a dead continent, all in search of a rumored vaccine that might bring humanity back from the brink. But their op goes dangerously wrong from the start, with the team scattered to hell and back, and their target site a dry hole. Now they must fight their way on foot through a city of 3 million ravening dead guys, in search of an underground bunker that might hold the Last Man on Earth. But these undead will not be like any Zulus they have ever fought before - and they surround the new target in a writhing ring of death 30 feet high on all sides... BOOK THREE - THREE PARTS DEAD Alpha team, the world's best and last surviving Tier-1 operators, are adrift on Lake Michigan - and fast drifting into what looks like a damned hostile shoreline. Deep in the National Forest nearby, a former police officer and survivalist battles to keep her family alive - and tries to decide whether the commandos of Alpha are more dangerous to her alive or dead. Meanwhile, the John F. Kennedy, the world's last floating supercarrier, is run aground off the coast of Virginia - and facing a veritable hurricane of the dead, blowing in fast. Finally, back in Fortress Britain, the terrible outbreak from the Channel Tunnel turns out not to have been so contained after all - and a death grip is beginning to close on London, an

  23. Evelyn Tiffany Castiglioni - Evelyn's Big Book for Mandolins 2015: A ...
    This book contains more than 150 reels, jigs, hornpipes, waltzes, airs, and songs arranged for folk ensembles to play for many occasions. I have especially arranged them for mandolins, though they can be played on most other C instruments. I chose the tunes because they are truly satisfying to play, fun to dance to, and represent many styles. There are choices to suit or create any mood. The traditional tunes come from across three centuries and around the world (England, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Sweden, the United States, and Wales). Timeless favorites are also included by Russian, European and American composers, among them Robert Allen, William Morris, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ilya Alekseevich Shatrov, and Luke Thomasson. Marches by Leon Jessel, F.W. Meacham and John Phillip Sousa are reincarnated as jigs and reels. Exquisite tunes are also included from contemporary composers Paul Gitlitz, Pete Jung, Maurizio Martinotti, John Turner, and Larry Unger. Some of the tunes are my compositions for my contra dance band "Jalapeno Honey" and my mandolin group "Plucked Pairs." Each arrangement consists of the melody line, descant line (harmony generally within or higher than the melody), and harmony line (generally lower than the melody), as well as chords for guitar or accordion. Most scores are printed on one page, though a few run to two pages."

  24. Eric Melvin - A Walk Down Edinburgh's Royal Mile: Discover the fascinating ...
    Writing in 1824, the author and future publisher Robert Chambers described Edinburgh as "a truly romantic place" and that for visitors it offered " a perfectly unique scene, and one which, once contemplated, was not easily to be forgotten." What the young Robert Chambers wrote some 200 years ago still holds true today for the thousands of local folk and visitors who walk down Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile. There can be few streets anywhere in the world that are so steeped in history. Stretching from the Castlehill lying in the shadow of the majestic Edinburgh Castle, then running down the quaintly named Lawnmarket, the Royal Mile then enters the ancient High Street itself before descending down the Canongate past the Scottish Parliament building and finally ending at the Royal Palace of Holyrood. For well over a 1000 years, the Royal Mile has been at the heart of Scotland's capital city. 'A Walk Down Edinburgh's Royal Mile' is intended both as a guide book for our many visitors and as an informative reference book for those, perhaps living far away as expatriate Scots, who have an interest in Edinburgh's unique story. 'A Walk Down Edinburgh's Royal Mile' will also take you off the historic street into some of the ancient closes and wynds which run north to the present-day New Town and south to the Grassmarket and the Cowgate. Many visitors on the Royal Mile pass these by unaware of their treasure trove of tales. Here you will find some of the best stories such as the marital problems of Lady Stair, the ill-luck of Deacon Brodie, the unsolved murder of Thomas Begbie the bank messenger and the murderous activities of the villainous Burke and Hare. The book will introduce you to some of the remarkable characters who have made this journey. Here you will meet such Scottish monarchs as Robert Bruce, James IV and Mary, Queen of Scots. They are joined by other iconic Scots such as Bonnie Prince Charlie, Sir Walter Scott, John Knox, Elsie Inglis and Robert Burns. Here too

  25. Charles River Editors - The Battle of Fort Donelson: The History of ...
    *Includes pictures *Includes accounts of the campaign written by generals on both sides *Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading *Includes a table of contents "No terms except an unconditional and immediate surrender." - Ulysses S. Grant at Fort Donelson "It was not possible for brave men to endure more." - General Lew Wallace While the Lincoln Administration and most Northerners were preoccupied with trying to capture Richmond in the summer of 1861, it would be the little known Ulysses S. Grant who delivered the Union's first major victories, over a thousand miles away from Washington. Grant's new commission led to his command of the District of Southeast Missouri, headquartered at Cairo, after he was appointed by "The Pathfinder," John C. Fremont, a national celebrity who had run for President in 1856. Fremont was one of many political generals that Lincoln was saddled with, and his political prominence ensured he was given a prominent command as commander of the Department of the West early in the war before running so afoul of the Lincoln Administration that he was court-martialed. In January of 1862, Grant persuaded General Henry "Old Brains" Halleck to allow his men to launch a campaign on the Tennessee River. As soon as Halleck acquiesced, Grant moved against Fort Henry, in close coordination with the naval command of Flag Officer Andrew Hull Foote. The combination of infantry and naval bombardment helped force the capitulation of Fort Henry on February 6, 1862, and the surrender of Fort Henry was followed immediately by an attack on Fort Donelson on the Cumberland River, which earned Grant his famous nickname "Unconditional Surrender." Grant's forces enveloped the Confederate garrison at Fort Donelson, which included Confederate generals Simon Buckner, John Floyd, and Gideon Pillow. In one of the most bungled operations of the war, the Confederate generals tried and failed to open an escape route by attacking Grant's forces on Februa

  26. Chris McKay - Longitude's Legacy James Harrison of Hull 1792-1875: Turret ...
    The story of John (Longitude) Harrison is well known; how after many years of work, he developed a clock that would keep accurate time at sea. His goal was to win the Longitude prize, a glittering 20,000 offered in the Act of 1714. John's story is well recounted at all levels from the glossy booklet through the symposium proceedings, the popular book, the deep technical tome and the TV film. James Harrison, (James 4) was the great-grandson of James, John's brother. He worked in Hull making turret clocks between around 1826 and 1860. He died in 1875 and left at least 30 turret clocks that are known of today. James well knew his forebears horological knowledge and incorporated some of John's principles into his clocks. A key invention was a detached escapement that although it looked like a grasshopper, was in fact a gravity escapement. Other firsts for James were cast-iron wheels, expanding flys to regulate striking speed, an effective striking mechanism and skeleton cast-iron dials. But James 4 left more than what he bequeathed in his will, it was a spin-off from John Harrison's knowledge. This 'Longitude's Legacy' is exposed and explained. Much has been written about John Harrison, however, little has been told about the rest of the family. This book corrects some of this woeful shortfall providing a brief history of James Harrison, brother of the famous John. This James turned to bell hanging, bellfounding and milling after he had helped his brother with making of the regulators and the first sea clock. His son, Henry was a bellfounder too and was succeeded briefly by his son Henry. Henry died early in his life and the bellfoundry was then run by James 3. James 3 was eccentric but through a series of 100 plus letters in the Mechanics' Magazine provide a deep insight into his knowledge and character and this is explored in two chapters. A chapter is provided on the clockmaker William Wynn whose letters in the Mechanics' Magazine spurred responses from James 3. Jame

  28. John Coombes - Meandering with Man's Best Friend in Devon.: Volume 10 ...
    This book was written to help walkers take your dog out to an area that they just might like to go for a change. It contains ten easy to follow walks all of which are circular and varying in distance from 1.5 miles up to 5.5 miles, so this is anything from a quick stroll or onto something just a bit more testing for you not the dog? The dogs are usually easily pleased with a good run, maybe a few sticks and an area with plenty of sniffs the job is very often done. But we walkers are more demanding we like good views, possibly refreshments along the way with an easy to follow trail with few obstacles nearby. The walks are all varied from forest, open fields, green lanes, bridleways and quiet country lanes. Most of these walks dogs are able to come off leads and get that extra bit of exercise that they all require. But unfortunately there are some walks where freedom is not so readily available, this could be due to a road or may be livestock in the fields but for whatever reason please be wise to the Country Code. Remember a dog will ways get excited when you reach and pick-up the lead and they never mind if it is a walk around the block or a route march over the hills. So make the ten circular walks provide a special day out for you and Man's Best Friend out and about together. Treat the dog walks as a stress relieving exercise because 5 minutes out and about you are totally relaxed, which is then transmitted to the dog. This takes you out into different parts of the countryside and maybe you would like to take a picnic just to make the day last a bit longer. Oh do not forget the ball, or the dog towel sure to be water and that means yes it is time to swim (unless you are a Standard Poodle of course). We are very lucky in Devon the whole area is very beautiful with many places for dogs to walk and run free, I have tried to keep the stile count down but they are mostly dog friendly. Please always remember the water bottles and dog bowls for a well-earned drink after

  29. John Coombes - Meandering on Rivers and Canals in Devon: Volume 3 ...
    There is always something special about setting out on river or canal walks. The views along the rivers are always on the change and there may be fast flowing water over a weir or slow and babbling along the lower terrain. The rivers tend to twist and turn through the ever changing countryside with there bright colours and rich green fields. If they run into any obstacles then they go straight through them or change route and go around so always changing the scenic back drop of the countryside. The wildlife can be very exciting along the rivers with fish, kingfishers, herons and on some rivers even otters, all of which can just disappear into the background and almost go unnoticed. Then there is the canals which are usually much straighter designed stretches of water, because they where used for transporting cargo from the work place to the docks. Now mostly used by narrow boats for pleasure they set out at a much slower pedestrian pace, this makes it a very tranquil walk along the tow-paths of the many canals. But again the wildlife just seem to fit in and adapt to there surroundings.
