Though his pitching career lasted only a few seasons, Howard Ellsworth “Smoky Joe” Wood was one of the most dominating figures in baseball history—a man many consider the best baseball player who is not in the Hall of Fame. About his fastball, Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson once said: “Listen, mister, no man alive can throw harder than Smoky Joe Wood.” Smoky Joe Wood chronicles the singular life befitting such a baseball legend. Wood got his start impersonating a female on the National Bloomer Girls team. A natural athlete, he pitched for the Boston Red Sox at eighteen, won twenty-one games and threw a no-hitter at twenty-one, and had a 34-5 record plus three wins in the 1912 World Series, for a 1.91 ERA, when he was just twenty-two. Then in 1913 Wood suffered devastating injuries to his right hand and shoulder that forced him to pitch in pain for two more years. After sitting out the 1916 season, he came back as a converted outfielder and played another five years for the Cleveland Indians before retiring to coach the Yale University baseball team. Joe's final reward for courageously enduring the eccentricities of his father, his sister's polio, the 1926–27 baseball scandal, and the loss of his beloved wife and a son was an honorary doctorate in 1985 from Yale and its president, Bart Giamatti. With details culled from interviews and family archives, this biography, the first of this rugged player of the Deadball Era, brings to life one of the genuine characters of baseball history.

From Mount Robson to Mount Assiniboine, follow the footsteps of artists such as Walter J. Phillips, Carl Runggius, Illingworth Kerr, Lawren Harris, and Catharine Robb Whyte, who hiked, were inspired by, and painted the magnificent peaks, hidden gem-coloured lakes, and tranquil alpine meadows of some of the world's most magnificent scenery.

World-renowned for their striking beauty and high mountain topography, the Southern Rockies are one of North America's gems. The Southern Rockies Ecoregion contains a diversity of life. From alpine tundra to ponderosa pine forests and sagebrush grasslands, over 500 vertebrate species find their home in the Southern Rockies as well as a rich variety of plants and invertebrates including over 270 species of butterflies and 5,200 species of moths. It is able to obtain this abundance partially because of its continuous stretches of wild, remote and undeveloped lands. And yet, this biodiversity is threatened, as are many wild places in North America, due to human expansion and development: native species have been extirpated; old growth forests logged, wild and powerful rivers dammed and polluted, and land degraded. The Southern Rockies Wildlands Network Vision calls for ecological restoration that is based on healing these ecological wounds: the Vision identifies these wounds to the land and then considers anthropogenic causes for each, addressing not only the symptoms and the disease, but also the root cause(s) of the illness. The injuries to the Southern Rockies that have been identified by the Vision include: * Loss and Decline of Native Species * Loss and Degradation of Terrestrial and Aquatic Ecosystems * Loss and Alteration of Natural Processes * Fragmentation of Wildlife Habitat * Invasion of Exotic Species * Pollution and Climate Change The current state of the Southern Rockies indicates that conservation planning and work is imperative. This Vision is a comprehensive look into that work, which is based in rewilding. It provides six goals and tangible implantation tactics relating to those goals in order to make the Vision a reality. These goals include protecting and recovering native species and their habitats, reducing pollution, controlling and removing exotic species, maintaining ecological and evolutionary processes and restoring landscape connectivity. The Vision is a prescription for the future. It recognizes that national parks, wilderness areas, and wildlife refuges have accomplished a great deal for nature. But over time, protected areas have been surrounded by roads and degraded landscapes. Now, the protected areas are too isolated to sustain viable populations of large animals, let alone many ecological and evolutionary processes. The Southern Rockies Wildlands Network Vision is a conservation blueprint and collaborative effort of the Southern Rockies Ecosystem Project, the Denver Zoo, and the Wildlands Project for the Southern Rockies of Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico.

A new and important bibliographical addition to travel and adventure in the American West, this work expands on the basic reference work in the field, The Plains and the Rockies: A Critical Bibliography of Exploration, Adventure and Travel in the American West, 1800-1865, begun by Henry R. Wagner and continued by Charles L. Camp and Robert H. Becker. A direct but independent outgrowth of David A. White's 8-volume series, News of the Plains and Rockies, 1803-1865 (Spokane, Washington, 1996-2001), this bibliography contains accounts discovered during the series' development and production which fit the guidelines of Wagner-Camp and Becker, but that were not included in their listings. Wagner's basic bibliography expanded from 349 items to 700 from its first issue in 1920 to the Becker revision of 1982. This new work adds 120 items to the catalog. The additions proposed emphasize genuine travels, but also include a few historic armchair documents and one piece of fiction. Many are from government documents, some from magazine articles, and a few from the more important and early newspaper accounts. Some promotional tracts are added, as well. The names of those whose sources are listed include Ezekiel Williams (his pioneering journeys to Colorado), John Ball (his earliest printed account of Oregon settlers), William Walker (the 1833 letter that touched off the Oregon missionary movement), Virginia E.B. Reed (her account of the Donner Party, 1847), Julia Archibald Holmes (her letter on her 1858 ascent of Pike's Peak), Gov. James Douglas (his 1858-62 first reports of the Fraser River and Cariboo gold rushes), Theodore Judah (his 1860 defining document for the Central Pacific Railroad), Charles Farrar Browne (humorist Artemus Ward's 1864 travels among the Mormons), and Lucinda Eubank and Nancy Morton (their 1864-65 captivities). The Reprints: A sampling of 33 of the 120 additions to the bibliography, judged to be the more important or appealing, is reprinted here in the format adopted by the News of the Plains series, with detailed introductions by the editor. The items reprinted are the best of the shortest accounts. Many of these short items are also of the greatest historical interest, including the first good record of fur hunting in the Rocky Mountains, the first enunciation of the Great American Desert concept, the first government report on the Missouri fur trade, the first tribute to the explorations of Jedediah Smith, the first article on white women crossing the Rockies, the first notice of Whitman's famous winter ride, the first official Mormon confirmation of their intended Western haven, the first word on Aubry's record horseback ride, the first news of the Gunnison and Grattan massacres, and the first reports of American scientific explorations overland to Alaska. Though independent of the News of the Plains and Rockies series, this volume offers a fine conclusion to the eight volume set, and is designed to complement the series. The book contains an introduction, annotated bibliography, reprints, appendix listings and index, as well as facsimiles and illustrations. Printed on acid-free paper and bound in maroon linen cloth with foil stamped spine and front cover. Issued in an edition of 1000 copies.
