Inthe American Mount Everest Expedition made mountaineering history. It was the first American venture to successfully scale the legendary peak and the first successful climb up the hazardous West Ridge a climb so difficult no one has yet repeated it. Environmental changes and overcrowding led to challenges and disappointments, but yet the mountain maintains its allure.

Now, steely-eyed Anker leads a team of writers in a book designed to celebrate the world's most famous mountain, to look back over the years of climbing triumphs and tragedies, and to spotlight what has changed--and what remains eternal--on Mount Everest.

Telltale signs of Everest's current state, never-before-published photography, and cutting-edge science expose the world's tallest peak--its ancient meaning, its ever-present challenges, and its future in a world of disappearing ice. Where else might you attend a wife-carrying competition, jump in and out of freezing water before being beaten by birch twigs, celebrate the summer solstice in a prehistoric stone circle, or choose between sweltering beaches, semi-desert, permafrost, glaciers, volcanoes, hot springs and the Arctic?

From remote, icy fjords in Greenland to wild street parties in Amsterdam, The Europe Book draws together the charms and the surprises of this magnificent continent. Step through the pages and be dwarfed by the Alps, blow your savings on a roulette table in Monaco, find a piece of the Berlin Wall and contemplate the Iron Curtain, and discover why Icelanders are the happiest people in the world.

Let Lonely Planet show you this continent through new eyes and inspire you to embark on your own European journey. More than half the world's population now lives in cities, and for travelers they hold an endless fascination.

Every city has its own personality, in the form of its streets and buildings and in its human architecture. Taking our cue from the buzz on the street, we have captured the flavor of each city through the eyes of the typical citizen: hot conversation topics, urban myths, the best places to eat and rink and to seek out after dark. It's a tempting cocktail for the urban adventurer.

More than photographs illustrate the unique qualities and diversity of the 50 states. The book contains informative and engaging details on each state, including history, culture and traditions, politics, myths and legends, trademarks and essential experiences. Special spreads highlight key themes and issues, from arts and architecture, to innovation and exploration, and oddball America. Luxury hideaways.

Take time out to indulge in romantic getaways, culinary adventures, musical journeys and family holidays. Or simply revel in pure relaxation. You deserve it! A fisherman's song at dawn on the banks of the Mekong, a chaos of color on the ghats of the Ganges, the silence of the vast steppes of Kazakhstan, a marching mile of red hats along the Great Wall road: Asia is all this and more.

Attempts to encapsulate the durable appeal of the stupa - one of the oldest religious symbols still in use - collide with the vast and varied history of stupa building. From mangrove swamp to ocean floor, mollusc to manatee, Atlantic Conveyer to Hurricane Katrina, unravel the mysteries of the sea.

Marvel at the oceans' power and importance to our planet - as the birthplace of life on Earth, a crucial element of our climate, and as a vital but increasingly fragile resource for mankind.

This title includes an inspiring introduction by editor-in-chief Fabien Cousteau. All 2, paintings are fully annotated with the name of the painting and artist, date created, size and medium. Advances in mushroom cultivation have made varieties that were once available only to experienced mushroom hunters now easy for all to find, and a number of mail-order sources provide more exotic kinds.

But what should a cook do with all these mushroom varieties? How do you bring out their most distinctive characteristics in the kitchen? Czarnecki gives an account of his life-long fascination with mushrooms—hunting them, cooking them, and eating them.

He describes the characteristics of the principle edible mushrooms and provides tasty recipes for both the widely available "wild" mushrooms as well as the more exotic varieties. The recipes include appetizers, main courses, salads, and even breakfast dishes that use mushrooms in starring and supporting roles, such as Morels with Ruffled Pasta, Wild Mushroom and Onion Soup, Barbecued Oysters and Shiitake Mushrooms, and Salmon with Chanterelles and Red Pepper Puree.

The author—whose knowledge of wine rivals his knowledge of mushrooms—includes wine or beer suggestions for most dishes.

Ez az album - a korábbi esztendőkhöz hasonlóan - a pályázat legjobb képeiből ad válogatást az olvasóknak.

InUNESCO launched an international campaign to safeguard the world's most important cultural, natural and mixed sites, which led to the first World Heritage List. In clear text and photographs describing each site, this updated and revised edition of World Heritage Sites details all sites on the list, including the 25 added in Covering countries, the World Heritage List is a valuable tool in the battle to preserve cultural and natural heritage.

At the same time, failure to maintain the criteria can result in being delisted, as was the Dresden Elbe Valley in In true DK Eyewitness Travel Guide style, each page of the book will show you what other books only tell you, with unique 3-D cutaway artwork that lets you look inside each building as if you were there.

Ancient, classical, and modern sights from every continent are included. Each featured sight has been selected for its uniqueness, or its historical or architectural importance, and many are included on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites. In addition to engaging text that describes each sight, sidebars and text panels cover topics such as the architectural style of the building, the architect and his works, or historic events or people that shaped the building as we know it today.

This book not only inspires readers to visit featured sights, but will also dazzle armchair travelers who prefer to explore these cultural wonders from the comfort of their own homes. Or hot dog. Or camembert. Take your taste buds on a tour around the world and cook up you next great culinary adventure.

Includes celebrity food-lover contributions, best places to find local dishes in cities great and small, cultural tips and how-to-eat etiquette, introductions by Mark Bittman and James Oseland, and more than 50 recipes to cook back home. Carluccio's interest in mushrooms-his mycological education-began at the age of seven when he went on mushroom hunts with his father and has culminated in his Neal Street Restaurant in London.

Today, mushrooms are more popular then ever. Chefs everywhere use these delectable morsels to provide a powerful punch of flavor, without adding many calories or fat. The book begins with a complete field guide, in which forty species are identified with photos.

To ensure safety, poisonous look-alike species are also meticulously documented. Then comes a veritable feast of more than mushroom recipes-from classic Italian preparations to Asian-inspired creations and contemporary dishes. Mouthwatering photos accompany each recipe and evoke the earthy sensuality that only mushrooms can bring to the table.
