Lost Arts of the Sportsman: The Ultimate Guide to Hunting, Fishing, Trapping, and Camping by Francis Henry Buzzacott (Skyhorse) 3.9 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

The Lost Art of the Sportsman is an exhaustive reference text and a compulsively addictive narrative from the turn of the 1900s. Francis H. Buzzacott would find little in common with the hiker and camper of contemporary times. This is the American frontiersman at his best -- no-holds-barred approach to sporting. And while some of the advice and information in The Lost Art of the Sportsman has undoubtedly been replaced with the advent of new technology, what's surprising is just how much of the book is still essential advice and knowledge for the modern hunter, fisher, and camper. Inside, you'll learn: • What to bring on a fishing, hunting, or camping trip • Recipes for easy campfire meals • Hunting, fishing, and trapping tips for a variety of animals • How to deal with an emergency in a remote place • Clothing choices for a variety of situations • Tips and secrets for all varieties of firearms Faithfully reproduced exactly how it was originally printed, The Lost Art of the Sportsman comes complete with hundreds of original pieces of line drawings and artwork, a true collector's edition for hunters, fisherman, and campers alike.

Uncage Eden: A Spiritual Philosophy Book about Food, Music, and the Rewilding of Society by DJ Rankin 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 6 hours ago

Our planet is in peril. Our species is in captivity. We alone hold the key. We have become disconnected from the love song of our living planet, and as a result, she has become severely out of balance as she spirals through her evolution. It is not beyond our power to regain a harmonious relationship with our plentiful Mother Earth, and as we reweave the web of symbiosis we were born with, humanity may once again experience a life without limitation. We are meant to be integral components of the wild, not slaves of the systematic destruction of it, and as the veil of our incarceration is lifted, we will rise to the occasion of tearing down the walls that contain us. This is the story of one water protector's path to understanding, his struggle to find what it means to live in a good way, and the incredible world that his adventure reveals along the journey. From Rattlesnakes to frybread to space dust to space funk, the music of the universe has a most compelling story to share, and as we ride the wave of this fundamental vibration, we become enlightened to the astounding complexity of creation. We are the dreamers, we are the creators, we have the ability to manifest our own reality as we travel throughout this material existence, and it is up to us to believe in the abundance of tomorrow. We have become lost in a cloud of fear, as we insist on imagining the worst possible outcomes for our children's future. The powers-that-be are attempting to subdue our awakening, but we are emerging from this nightmare, and rediscovering the true nature of the spirit within. Life is meant to be lived, every moment is meant to be cherished, and you are meant to be you. The language of human supremacy has convinced us that we are powerless, but we alone hold the key to unlocking the cages of our planet, and as we shed this illusion of scarcity, the magic of the garden will once again be free to bloom. And we're gonna make the best late night snacks.

Biological Invasions in South Africa (Invading Nature - Springer Series in Invasion Ecology Book 14) by Brian W. van Wilgen (Springer) Price verified 14 hours ago

This open access volume presents a comprehensive account of all aspects of biological invasions in South Africa, where research has been conducted over more than three decades, and where bold initiatives have been implemented in attempts to control invasions and to reduce their ecological, economic and social effects. It covers a broad range of themes, including history, policy development and implementation, the status of invasions of animals and plants in terrestrial, marine and freshwater environments, the development of a robust ecological theory around biological invasions, the effectiveness of management interventions, and scenarios for the future. The South African situation stands out because of the remarkable diversity of the country, and the wide range of problems encountered in its varied ecosystems, which has resulted in a disproportionate investment into both research and management. The South African experience holds many lessons for other parts of the world, and this book should be of immense value to researchers, students, managers, and policy-makers who deal with biological invasions and ecosystem management and conservation in most other regions.

Programming for Computations - Python: A Gentle Introduction to Numerical Simulations with Python 3.6 (Texts in Computational Science and Engineering ... by Svein Linge (Springer) 3.5 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

This book is published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This book presents computer programming as a key method for solving mathematical problems. This second edition of the well-received book has been extensively revised: All code is now written in Python version 3.6 (no longer version 2.7). In addition, the two first chapters of the previous edition have been extended and split up into five new chapters, thus expanding the introduction to programming from 50 to 150 pages. Throughout the book, the explanations provided are now more detailed, previous examples have been modified, and new sections, examples and exercises have been added. Also, a number of small errors have been corrected. The book was inspired by the Springer book TCSE 6: A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python (by Langtangen), but the style employed is more accessible and concise, in keeping with the needs of engineering students. The book outlines the shortest possible path from no previous experience with programming to a set of skills that allows students to write simple programs for solving common mathematical problems with numerical methods in the context of engineering and science courses. The emphasis is on generic algorithms, clean program design, the use of functions, and automatic tests for verification.

Measure, Integration & Real Analysis (Graduate Texts in Mathematics Book 282) by Sheldon Axler (Springer) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

This open access textbook welcomes students into the fundamental theory of measure, integration, and real analysis. Focusing on an accessible approach, Axler lays the foundations for further study by promoting a deep understanding of key results. Content is carefully curated to suit a single course, or two-semester sequence of courses, creating a versatile entry point for graduate studies in all areas of pure and applied mathematics. Motivated by a brief review of Riemann integration and its deficiencies, the text begins by immersing students in the concepts of measure and integration. Lebesgue measure and abstract measures are developed together, with each providing key insight into the main ideas of the other approach. Lebesgue integration links into results such as the Lebesgue Differentiation Theorem. The development of products of abstract measures leads to Lebesgue measure on Rn. Chapters on Banach spaces, Lp spaces, and Hilbert spaces showcase major results such as the Hahn-Banach Theorem, Hölder's Inequality, and the Riesz Representation Theorem. An in-depth study of linear maps on Hilbert spaces culminates in the Spectral Theorem and Singular Value Decomposition for compact operators, with an optional interlude in real and complex measures. Building on the Hilbert space material, a chapter on Fourier analysis provides an invaluable introduction to Fourier series and the Fourier transform. The final chapter offers a taste of probability. Extensively class tested at multiple universities and written by an award-winning mathematical expositor, Measure, Integration & Real Analysis is an ideal resource for students at the start of their journey into graduate mathematics. A prerequisite of elementary undergraduate real analysis is assumed; students and instructors looking to reinforce these ideas will appreciate the electronic Supplement for Measure, Integration & Real Analysis that is freely available online.
