The Thrill of the Chase Excerpt :

Samuel J. Wagstaff Jr. (1921–1987) amassed an extraordinary collection of 26,000 photographs between 1973 and 1984, recognizing that photography was an undervalued art form on which he might have a profound impact as a collector. He was mainly attracted to photographs that stimulated his imagination, and his taste ran toward the idiosyncratic—images that surprised him chiefly because he had never seen them before. In choosing the 147 works reproduced in this volume, Paul Martineau selected masterpieces as well as images from obscure sources: daguerreotypes, cartes-de-visite, and stereographs, plus mug shots, medical photographs, and works by unknown makers. The latter category contains some of the most outstanding objects in the collection, demonstrating Wagstaff’s willingness to position unfamiliar images alongside works by established masters as well as underrepresented contemporary artists of the time, including Jo Ann Callis, William Garnett, and Edmund Teske. This book is published to accompany an eponymous exhibition on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from March 15 to July 31, 2016; at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT, from September 10 to December 11, 2016; and at the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, ME, from February 1 to April 30, 2017.

Chasing the Thrill Excerpt :

"A full-throttle, first-person account of the treasure hunt set in motion by Forest Fenn--an eccentric art dealer and, some would say, robber baron--in 2010 that lasted a full decade and became the stuff of contemporary legend. When Forest Fenn was told he was going to die, he hid a chest full of jewels and gold in the wilderness and published a poem that contained a series of clues about the treasure's secret location. But he didn't die, and he wouldn't reveal the location. The wild hunt went on for another ten years. Daniel Barbarisi first learned of Fenn's hunt in 2017 when a friend began decoding the poem and convinced Barbarisi to catalogue his search. What began as a great story documenting the history of Fenn's treasure hunt--the rumors, characters, and pitfalls--quickly turned into a personal quest, as Barbarisi found himself on a sometimes reckless and possibly dead-end path, despite having a family at home. Over the course of the next three years, several searchers would die, endless controversies would erupt, and one anonymous unknown would find the ultimate prize. Rich with mystery, danger, and break-neck action, Barbarisi's account of the imagination and drive of desire, of obsession, and of a particularly unbridled adventure is pure gold on the page"--

The Thrill of the Chaste Catholic Edition Excerpt :

Dawn Eden, internationally known speaker and author, presents a completely revised Catholic edition of her bestselling work, The Thrill of the Chaste. In this version, Eden shares her story of conversion to Catholicism and invites readers into a Catholic understanding of chastity and its spiritual benefits. When Dawn Eden released The Thrill of the Chaste in 2006, she was a Jewish convert to Protestant Christianity, preparing to make the final leap into Catholicism. Now, nine years later, Eden has extensively updated The Thrill of the Chaste, sharing how her Catholic faith, the lives and intercession of the saints, and the healing power of the sacraments have led her to find her true identity in Christ. This revised, Catholic version offers spiritual and practical advice for both men and women seeking to live chastely in a world that glorifies sex. Eden offers tips to help readers avoid temptation and live faithfully—including dressing modestly, but not being afraid to feel good about the way they look; trusting that God has a plan for their life and relationships; and making sure their “yes” comes from the heart.

The Thrill of the Chase Excerpt :

Horses, hounds, risk-taking, adrenaline, the great outdoors and camaraderie are all part of the allure of hunting. In The Thrill of the Chase: celebrating hunting with harrier hounds in New Zealand, evocative photographs capture the essence of this dynamic sport. Equestrian journalist and hunting enthusiast Sarah Milne and award-winning photographer Rob Tucker have travelled the country recording all facets of the hunting season. Separate chapters outline the roles of key participants, including the Master, huntsman and whipper-in. Other chapters provide an insight into breeding, assessing and preparing hounds for hunting. Several of New Zealand's most recognised hunting identities, including 95-year-old Bessie Fullerton-Smith, Patroness of the New Zealand Hunts' Association are profiled and give their personal insights into the unique qualities of hunting in this country. As many paddocks in New Zealand are enclosed by post and wire fences, jumping wire presents a significant difference from hunting in either England or the USA. Although visitors initially find this challenging, it is an accepted part of the sport here. In the diverse New Zealand landscape, hunting can involve negotiating large fences (often wire), riding through streams or on the beach and around swamps and areas of bush. From Northland's coast-to-coast hunting, to rolling green Waikato farms, the big gorse hedges of Canterbury and expansive tussock lands of Central Otago, Rob Tucker's photographs record many of the hunts in action. Mount Taranaki, the mountains of the Central Plateau and the wide vistas of Hawkes Bay all provide wonderful backdrops for horses and hounds enjoying a day's hunting. Many good competition horses have started their careers in the hunting field and several New Zealand event riders have enjoyed the sport, including Mark Todd who comments in his foreword on 'the excitement of crossing fantastic country at speed and the challenge of jumping whatever comes in front of you.'

Too Far to Walk Excerpt :

"Forrest has spent most of his life saving things, especially photographs. That's why it's been easy for him to illustrate this book. He apologizes for showing so many pictures of himself and justifies it by describing this volume as his scrapbook of memories. He has tested the extremes in his personal life, in business, and in combat, where he learned that some of the edges were closer than he thought. Those stories are collected here. He describes his mistakes as being ample, but whispers that none have weakened his ardor for the chase."--Jacket flap.
