Clark, Charles R.
A sea voyage in the nineteenth century was not for the faint-hearted. The hazards were many and accidents commonplace. Of the ways a ship might meet its end, destruction by fire was perhaps the most feared. Wooden sailing vessels were particularly vulnerable and without breathing apparatus it was next to impossible to fight a fire below decks. The period saw a number of catastrophic shipboard fires, but that involving the New Zealand-bound emigrant ship Cospatrick was certainly the most destructive. When she burned and sank off the coast of Southern Africa in 1874, nearly 500 people lost their lives. There was a desperate battle to quench the fire, a huge death toll as the vessel was being abandoned, and acts of cannibalism in the one lifeboat that remained afloat. This book is based on research carried out in Britain, New Zealand and Australia. While it relates the story of the Cospatrick and the nightmare survival of only three people, it also looks at the larger picture of safety at sea. 174pp. N.B. Head of Spine bumped.

Davis, Neal and Sandy
Texas is big and amazingly diverse. It is a desert. It is a forest. It is bone dry. And it is teeming swampland. Author Neal Davis has managed to fit rides into one book that will show you all these faces of Texas. With this new, updated edition Davis has expanded his coverage to include several excursions into northern Mexico as well. Texas has over 3 million acres of inland lakes and rivers, 600 miles of oceanfront, and countless bayous and swamps in the eastern part of the state. Over 20 million acres of Texas are covered with trees. Most important to motorcyclists, it has almost 100 mountains that exceed 5,000 feet in elevation - with eight exceeding 8,000 feet - each conveniently adorned with smooth roads that are waiting for you to explore. Texas roads will take you from an ocean-side lobster shack with the best chowder outside of New England to a lush forest highway that winds through a bursting riverbed in the shadow of several snow-capped mountain peaks. You're guaranteed a great day when your most important decision will be whether to crank the throttle and power up a mountain road, or slip down into town to try the local deli. Texas has thousands of destinations, attractions, and landscapes to explore. Davis has laid out for you a choice sampling of the best roads to ride, the best restaurants along the way, and the best times to see (or avoid) the hot tourist spots. If you are taking your bike to Texas, or are ready to dust off your Texas plates, this book will help and entertain you along the way. As Davis explains in his Introduction, 'if you love motorcycling, you will love Texas'.286pp.
