Mountain to mountain - a journey of adventure and activism for the women of Afghanistan

Focusing on the war-torn country of Afghanistan, Galpin and her organization, Mountain2Mountain, have touched the lives of hundreds of men, women and children. In addition to launching the non-profit, in 2009 Galpin became the first woma

Blind curves - a woman, a motorcycle, and a journey to reinvent herself

After months of following one-size-fits-all advice for a fifty-seven-year-old widow, Linda Crill is still miserable, until she makes a rebellious, spur-of-the-moment decision : she trades her corporate suits for motorcycle leathers and commits herself to a 2,500-mile road trip down America's Pacific Northwest coast on a Harley. The problem is that she doesn't know how to ride and has only thirty days to learn. Four short weeks later, Linda joins two men and a woman for a white-knuckle, exhilarat

Designed to give readers a wide-perspective on creativity, The Creative Woodturner begins first with insightful commentary, quotes, and examples from the woodturning and art community that will both inspi
