Breining, Greg
To the uninitiated, ice fishing seems improbable, wacky, and dangerous. But every winter, more than 2 million hardy northerners go to their place on the lake: literally on the lake. Striking story-telling photographs by Layne Kennedy and engaging essays by outdoor writer and fisherman Greg Breining capture the quirky world of ice fishing - its natural beauty and solitary subzero vigils, along with its oddball practices and practitioners.Kennedy and Breining take readers to fun-filled if bizarre festivals that include 'Guys on Ice' in Door County, Wisconsin, the Tip-Up Town USA festival on Michigan's Houghton Lake, and the supremely self-mocking International Eelpout Festival on Minnesota's Leech Lake, which honours a slimy, pot-bellied, finny critter. Photos offer peeks inside ice houses that range from a plastic-bag cocoon to an impossibly luxurious Adirondacks ice residence with front porch and wet bar. Travel to a frozen lake in the Boundary Waters, to ice cities that form and disband overnight, and to the Volga River near Moscow, shadowed by the KGB. Perhaps most importantly, "A Hard-Water World" allows the reader to enjoy the beauty, wonder, and, yes, insanity of ice-fishing all year round and in the comfort of his or her own home. 127pp.

Jacobson, Steve
The real and painful struggles of the black players who followed Jackie Robinson into major and minor league baseball from 1947 through 1968 are chronicled in this compelling volume. Players share their personal and often heart-wrenching stories of intense racism, both on and off the field, mixed with a sometimes begrudged appreciation for their tremendous talents. Stories include incidents of white players who gave up promising careers in baseball because they wouldn't play with a black teammate, the Georgia law that forbade a black player from dressing in the same clubhouse as the white players, the quotas for the number of blacks on a team, and how salary negotiations without agents or free agency were akin to a plantation system for both black and white players. The 20 players profiled include Ernie Banks, Alvin Jackson, Charlie Murray, Chuck Harmon, Frank Robinson, Bob Gibson, Hank Aaron, Curt Flood, Lou Brock, and Bob Watson.

Vogler, Stephen
Consistently voted the number one ski resort in North America, Whistler - situated at the top of a narrow pass in the Coast Mountains 120 kilometres from Vancouver - sees two million visitors each year, even though the town itself only boasts a full-time population of 10,000. World attention has been increasingly focused on Whistler since 2003, when it was chosen to host the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. "Top of the Pass" is the incredible story of how a cluster of modest log cabins called Alta Lake mushroomed into the glamorous year-round recreation Mecca known as Whistler. Stephen Vogler gives a rare glimpse of a mountain community and the lifestyles of its locals and visitors. Brimming with stunning colour photographs by Toshi Kawano and Bonny Makarewicz, this spectacular coffee-table book shows why Whistler is one of the most visited destinations in Canada.144pp.
