Time was, a man had to know certain things in this life. He had to use his callused hands and the knowledge passed down through the generations to carve a homestead from the wilderness and to feed his family by hunting and trapping animals or coaxing crops from the earth. But today, as men trade hammer and ax for computer and fax, and a cabin in the woods for a place in the burbs, these manly skills are in danger of disappearing forever. To the rescue comes Denis Boyles, columnist for Men's Health magazine, with a priceless treasury of forgotten lore and dozens of projects designed to rekindle that dying ember of machismo. Culled from U.S. government pamphlets, turn-of-the-century publications and old scouting manuals, this guide to lost lore contains projects on camping, hunting and fishing, farming and much more. Such skills as sending smoke signals, tracking a bobcat or moose, turning a bike into a steam-powered motorcycle and building a cozy log cabin are all included. In a world full of mama's boys, The Lost Lore of a Man's Life is the ultimate guide to reclaiming a man's lost heritage.

What John McPhee's books all have in common is that they are about real people in real places. Here, at his adventurous best, he is out and about with people who work in freight transportation. Over the past eight years, John McPhee has spent considerable time in the company of people who work in freight transportation. Uncommon Carriers is his sketchbook of them and of his journeys with them. He rides from Atlanta to Tacoma alongside Don Ainsworth, owner and operator of a sixty-five-foot,eighteen-wheel chemical tanker carrying hazmats. McPhee attends ship-handling school on a pond in the foothills of the French Alps, where, for a tuition of $15,000 a week, skippers of the largest ocean ships refine their capabilities in twenty-foot scale models. He goes up the "tight-assed" Illinois River on a "towboat" pushing a triple string of barges, the overall vessel being "a good deal longer than the Titanic." And he travels by canoe up the canal-and-lock commercial waterways traveled by Henry David Thoreau and his brother, John, in a homemade skiff in 1839. Uncommon Carriers is classic work by McPhee, in prose distinguished, as always, by its author's warm humor, keen insight, and rich sense of human character.
