Don't Take No for an Answer: 5 Proven Steps That Get You to Yes
Matterhorn Publishing, 2004
A Little Of Niceness Goes A Long Way
I work at Disney. A place to work where they pay you to be nice.... literally. We deal everyday with the public and, I must say at moments it can be a real challenge as everyone has their own agenda and mood swing. I read "Don't Take No for an Answer!". Mr. Gideon's book was a real eye opener to the phrase that the customer is always right. When I apply what I learned in the book it is much ...

This fast-paced adventure gives everyone a character to relate to. Not only is it a clever story with unique characters and clever twists, it also seamlessly incorporates deeper ideas like discrimination, sacrifice, and overcoming traditional barriers. The great thing is that the author weaves these themes in so naturally, you walk away from the book with plenty to think about and keep you ...

Jewel Heist (Mike Hamel's Matterhorn the Brave, No. 4)
Battles in the Bermuda
In this fourth book of the matterhorn series. Matterhorn gets a rude awakening when he learns that Jewels has been kidnapped. Matterhorn was frightened by the thought that they could come into his own world. Soon the Baron Nate and Sara are fighting canibals, category 5 huricanes, two evil wraiths and a philosipher kungfu type noble
My wife and I had the pleasure of reading this book and through its inspiration were encouraged to climb the Matterhorn ourselves. This book not only prepares one for the climb itself, but is also an entertaining account of a man's success in achieving his longtime goal. It is a great book for those aspiring to climb this special mountain or just enjoy reading about it. Happy Reading!
Scrambles Amongst the Alps/in the Years 1860-69 (Century Travellers)
superb writing from the Golden Age of Alpinism
Since I first read this little classic, Edward Whymper's book on scrambling in the Alps has always been my favorite mountaineering book. Something about his style of writing makes one feel they have not only read a delightful tale, they have actually incorporated it into their own memory. His pencil etchings are so evocative, you can almost smell the brisk air of Zermatt and feel the weathered ...
Walking the World: Memories and Adventures
The Joys of Walking
Alan Cook's book, Walking the World, is an ode to the joys of walking. A lifelong walker, Alan takes the reader along with him on his travels across the United States as well as to Europe and Asia. You can join in his pleasure, and sometimes pain, as he walks the length of California, or from Land's End in Cornwall to John o'Groats in Scotland. This is a very entertaining read.
Mustang on the Matterhorn
One of My Favorite Characters Ever
This appears to be the first of three Mustang epics written by Mr. Lytton, and they're all wonderfully delightful as ever-curious Mustang Terry Simmons inadvertently finds herself enmeshed in criminal activities when she's only trying to 1) be helpful to her current boyfriend, and 2) promote the forces of law and order. There's suspense aplenty, but my favorite part of these stories are M. Terry ...
Rylan the Renegade (Matterhorn the Brave Series #6)
Rylan the Renegade
This is another awesome book in the series. There are some new added elements that can stop the sword. Bea goes on a quest to find her uncle, the plot thickens. Tons of action and a must read/buy.
Banner in the Sky
James Ramsey Ullman
More than just an adventure story
I read this book with my 13 year old son as part of our homeschool curriculum. My 15 year old daughter kept listening in as we read and soon was so absorbed in the story that she made us promise not to read it without her. This is a very well-written, realistic adventure story that illustrates the value of character and integrity over personal ambition. It's not often that I come across books ...
Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War
Atlantic Monthly Press
The book started a little slowly for me, but as the story unfolded it was clear why it was "slow" at first. It is a fantastic book that makes one appreciate our brave soldiers even more.

Explore the Hoover Wilderness
I must confess that I had never been into the Hoover Wilderness prior to this summer. I stopped in the Bridgeport Ranger Station to inquire about other trailheads in the Humbolt Toiyabe National Forest and a trailhead ranger there noted that he never visited Yosemite since the Hoover Wildernes had so much to offer. So I purchased this map and set to hiking the area. One thing that is ...

Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam
17 reviews, 2009
Plot/Storyline: 5 Stars I have read many fictional accounts of wartime, but this one is the most realistic I have come across. Unlike many other novels centered around a war, this one does not try to vilify or praise the soldiers, military, or government. It simply tells the story of one regular guy who got drafted. Various opinions are displayed, but never in a preachy kind of way. Carl is ...
Wet Behind The Ears

Bruno was not defeated by early adversity but he was shaped by it. Growing up as a young Jewish boy in Switzerland during the Nazi era he experienced both isolation and rejection. Despite a ...
