The Galapagos Islands, a remote paradise, are as mysterious as ever. But the details of travel to the Galapagos are no longer a mystery. The essentials of a how-to travel adventure to the Land of Darwin are now available in the comprehensive "Traveler's Guide to the Galapagos Islands." From which airlines to choose and why, to a detailed analysis of the Tour Operator network, Barry Boyce describes the rules and tells the reader how to play the adventure travel game. Entire chapters are devoted to topics such as choosing a tour (with descriptions, analyses, and price structures of all the yachts and cruise ships), what to pack and what not to pack, photographic opportunities and equipment on land and underwater, Galapagos history, wildlife and a detailed tour of the islands. First edition reviews: "Boyce's excitement and knowledge mix to produce a comprehensive and responsible guide to touring the Galapagos." -- Brad Hooper, Booklist. "Just on the market and badly needed... Boyce's effort is likely to be a definitive work." -- Zeke Wigglesworth, San Jose Mercury News.

This is as much a celebration of life as it is a memoir. My husband, Lou, and I each did our own thing but we always helped one another to accomplish what the other needed or wanted. We adored our children and took pleasure in them. I am relishing this pleasure once again while leaving a record for my family to build on and also revealing my personal journey from ignorance to being a student of Judaism. Ah! To have a chance to revisit those times has been wonderful. Not only did I want to leave a record for my children and grandchildren but also for my great grandchildren, but I also wanted to go on that grand adventure called life once again. True, it had its tragedies; doesnt every life? But its pleasures and high points and our wonderful marriage outweighed everything else.

Paul Mellon (1907--1999) assembled one of the world’s greatest collections of British drawings and watercolors. In his memoirs he wrote of their “beauty and freshness… their immediacy and sureness of technique, their comprehensiveness of subject matter, their vital qualities, their Englishness.” This catalogue celebrating the centenary of Mellon's birth features eighty-eight outstanding watercolors from the fifty thousand works of art on paper with which he endowed the Yale Center for British Art. The selection spans the emergence of watercolor painting in the mid-18th century to its apogee in the mid-19th. These works highlight the diversity of British watercolors, showcasing both landscape and figurative works by some of the principal artists working in the medium, including Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Rowlandson, William Blake, and J. M.W. Turner.
