The Innocent Days Of A North Dakota Farm Boy from the Author: Carmen James Lee. It was a time of innocence for author Carmen James Lee, growing up on a rural farm in North Dakota in the 1950s. In The Innocent Days of a North Dakota Farm Boy, he shares a nostalgic collection of stories telling about his experiences as a child during a much simpler time. In this memoir, he narrates how he walked in the fresh snow to milk the cows with a kerosene lantern in his hand, what it was like attending a one-room school, and how he sawed a huge hay stack in half with a rope made of barbwire. Recalling a fun-filled youth, Lee tells about his challenges, his dream, his successes, and his failures. The Innocent Days of a North Dakota Farm Boy shares real-life stories of a North Dakota boy growing up and experiencing these and many more fun and exciting things—from plowing with a tiny, two-bottom plow behind the Ford tractor to marching in the school band at the Indianapolis 500 car race.

Running Free from the Author: Richard Askwith. Shortlisted for the 2015 Thwaites Wainwright prize for nature writing Richard Askwith wanted more. Not convinced running had to be all about pounding pavements, buying fancy kit and racking up extreme challenges, he looked for ways to liberate himself. His solution: running through muddy fields and up rocky fells, running with his dog at dawn, running because he's being (voluntarily) chased by a pack of bloodhounds, running to get hopelessly, enjoyably lost, running fast for the sheer thrill of it. Running as nature intended. Part diary of a year running through the Northamptonshire countryside, part exploration of why we love to run without limits, Running Free is an eloquent and inspiring account of running in a forgotten, rural way, observing wildlife and celebrating the joys of nature. An opponent of the commercialisation of running, Askwith offers a welcome alternative, with practical tips (learned the hard way) on how to both start and keep running naturally – from thawing frozen toes to avoiding a stampede when crossing a field of cows. Running Free is about getting back to the basics of why we love to run.
