“Santella spans the globe on two wheels in his newest book, the ninth in his bestselling Fifty Places series, taking readers—and riders—from Italy to Iowa. Anchored by spectacular photography, Fifty Places to Bike Before You Die offers as much inspiration as it does information with tips on potential routes, when to go, and where to stay along the way. This is a beautiful book that will have you packing your sunscreen for Sardinia one minute and an extra layer for Alberta’s Icefields Parkway the next.” —Portland Monthly magazine
What would it be like to give up everything and attempt to live off the land? Chris McCandless attempted this endeavor donating all his money to charity and cutting off communication to the world to make his way into the great white North – Alaska. Krakauer describes his devastating death with the clarity and foresight of a journalist yet with the passion of a fellow nature-lover.
If you enjoy hiking, camping, trees, bears, granola bars, backpacking, lakes, or noodles you need to read this book. Bryson makes me want to call in sick for the next year, spending the time wandering the forest without having to worry about a schedule. Plus the writing is intelligent and hilarious. Anyone want to walk the John Muir Trail with me next month?
Written by two former UCSC students with a passion for fun, this book is a fabulous guide for the theme park fanatic.

Almost too unbelievable to be true, this action adventure story is a
great page turner. Zuckoff balances thorough reporting with dramatic
retelling as he present the story of plane-crash survivors and the
isolated indigenous tribe members they encounter. While it must have
been a harrowing experience for those involved, the happy-ending of
their trials and the immense readability of the writing make this an
easy and entertaining read.
