ARE YOU RUGGED OR UNRUGGED? According to Rugged Dude Carson (his real name): "This is the ultimate guide to bringing even a rugged dude or dudette in training all the way up to Rugged Certified status! Even if you live in a high rise building in the city, and drive a Toyota Prius, there is hope for you... Read this book and you'll be on your way to full ‘Ruggedtivityizationalizm.' Yes, that's a real word. Look it up!" Rugged Dude credits inspiration for the book from "Doing my TV series Officially Rugged with RD for eight seasons and the many (thousands) of emails from people telling us their ideas of being rugged or unrugged. we got over that time. " When asked how much of himself he could see in the rugged or un-rugged dilemmas, RD replied: "Safe to say that I do see myself in many of the scenarios in the book. Also, on many of my trips (for taping shows anywhere across Canada and the USA) there would be a couple or three other people with us. And, they too, would be perfect candidates for some of this ruggedtivity." "I feel so much better--it's good to have my ruggedness affirmed by the experts. This book is a humorous look at the outdoors lifestyle that those of us that are rugged, enjoy. This collection of fun illustrations and ruggedisms will keep you turning the pages from cover to cover. Are you rugged? Take the test. And yes, I have fixed a hole in my canoe with duct tape." --Mikel B. Classen, author of Lake Superior Tales, editor of U.P. Reader "After a year in the bush hunting and fishing and not using any deodorant, a hungry bear picks up your trail. It gets a good whiff of you and goes the other way. Rugged?..... Thiis book is humorous and full of many 'Rugged' examples. A winner!" --- Bob Hruska, Author of Humorous Hunting and Fishing Stories From Modern History Press

A dream shared by many is to run a few horses on a small property on the fringes of a city or town. This book shows how to combine sustainable land management practices with a style of horse keeping that will protect the health and well-being of your horses, as well as the land and its wildlife. Good property management does not need to be an expensive undertaking. Improved pasture means less feed bills, reduced mud or dust improves a horse's health and reduces vet bills, better manure management turns a liability into an asset. The reader is first introduced to the horse's natural behaviour as expressed in body language, intelligence, ability to learn, grazing, herd instincts and social behaviour. The book then goes on to cover all the basics of safe handling, routine care and common health problems. Property selection, property design, water supply, pasture management, horse facilities, fencing, trees and plants, manure management and equipment and tools are comprehensively dealt with in separate chapters. This is a practical book written with a minimum of jargon especially for those who are new to horse ownership and small properties. It will deliver real benefits to the landholder, including reduced horse keeping costs, better welfare of horses, increased productivity, and improved land management practices.

Wacky Chicks

Author: Simon Doonan

Most of us know a wacky chick. She's a true nonconformist, a woman who dares to be different. On any ordinary day she might be found performing a citizen's arrest, running a concession stand at a swingers' convention, or wearing a tiara on top of a cowboy hat. Even when conservatively dressed, wacky chicks give themselves away with their fire and exuberance: their outrageous personalities make them as easy to spot as a flamingo prancing among pigeons. Once considered a rarity, this wild and wonderful species seems to be increasing its numbers. In Wacky Chicks, irreverent social commentator and humor writer Simon Doonan celebrates this growing phenomenon by introducing readers to a bracing cross section of today's most provocative and unconventional women. He asks them to reveal what it takes to be a wacky chick and how wacky-chickery can help women everywhere find creative fulfillment. Readers will learn everything from wacky-chick spiritualism (woo-woo chicks) to wacky-chick business sense (chicks with shticks). We will witness their lives, habitats, mating rituals, careers, and childbearing practices. There's even priceless advice on fashion, beauty, interior decorating, finding the right partner, and unleashing your feminist wacky chick without losing your femininity. Some of Doonan's wacky chicks you may already know -- Amy Sedaris, cocktail waitress turned creator and star of Comedy Central's Strangers with Candy, and her alter ego Piglet; Warhol muse and Key lime pie aficionado Brigid Berlin; and Susanne Bartsch, the woman who showed Madonna how to vogue. But most are supervixens you've never met, because, naturally, a wacky chick does not aspire to traditional fame and fortune. Included here are the life lessons of fashion designer turned park ranger Spider Fawke, the proud mother of thirty-eight lizards and a four-inch tarantula; slashed-spandex-wearing Isabel Garrett; hip hypnotist Jessica Porter; and a new age pixie named Kazuko. They are about as diverse a flock as you can imagine, but they share a common theme: all of these women are Belligerent, Resilient, Uninhibited, Naughty, Creative, and Hilarious (B.R.U.N.C.H. for short). In a word, they are wacky. A book that pays tribute to the wild and unstoppable female in each of us, Wacky Chicks is the ultimate guide to embracing your inner rebel. Mixing intimate and outrageous interview material with philosophical interludes, Simon Doonan brings you on a soul-searching journey that may leave you creating hats out of tinfoil or opening your own hot dog stand, infinitely self-assured and infinitely wacky.
