The Art of Arrow Cutting: Stephen Dedman
Can you face a wild animal with the ability to eat, maul, or trample you, with only a bow and arrow in your hand? When you stare death in the face at less than 30 yards, can you control your fear and the adrenaline rush that hits you, and do you have enough confidence in your shooting skills and your bow’s ability to perform the task before it? If you have, then you’ve experienced what very few people on God’s earth have the opportunity to do and survive. From where does courage come? How does a person obtain courage? What can courage do for you? Each time you face a fear, a dangerous situation, or a life-and-death experience, and you push through the fear and the emotion of the moment, you dip up a deep cup of courage and pour it into your being. The more courage you obtain, and the more fear you face, the happier you can be. My definition of happiness is the absence of fear. The hunters we hear about in this audiobook are some of the happiest people I know. Most enjoy the hunt for dangerous game far more than they enjoy the actual shots they take. Hunting dangerous game with bows and arrows gives an individual an opportunity to step back to a time when survival depended on the accuracy and courage of the men and women who went afield with bows and arrows. In this audiobook, you’ll meet some amazing bowhunters who’ve had dreams of hunting dangerous game and have realized those dreams. Most of these hunters have made many more than one dangerous-game hunt. If you’ve always dreamed of standing at full draw with a thousand-pound Cape buffalo looking you in the eyes about to charge; you’ve wondered how you will respond when close to a bull elephant that easily can turn you into a sausage patty; or you’re less than 30 yards from a brown bear that can take down and kill a moose weighing more than 800 pounds; then I believe you’ll really enjoy this audiobook. 1.

An insightful portrait of Muhammed Ali from the New York Times best-selling author of At the Altar of Speed and The Big Bam. It centers on the cultural and political implications of Ali´s refusal of service in the military - and the key moments in a life that was as high profile and transformative as any in the 20th century. With the death of Muhammad Ali in June 2016, the media and America in general have remembered a hero, a heavyweight champion, an Olympic gold medalist, an icon, and a man who represents the sheer greatness of America. New York Times best-selling author Leigh Montville goes deeper, with a fascinating chronicle of a story that has been largely untold. Muhammad Ali, in the late 1960s, was young, successful, brash, and hugely admired - but with some reservations. He was bombastic and cocky in a way that captured the imagination of America but also drew its detractors. He was a bold young African American in an era when few people were as outspoken. He renounced his name - Cassius Clay - as being his ´slave name´ and joined the Nation of Islam, renaming himself Muhammad Ali. And finally, in 1966, after being drafted, he refused to join the military for religious and conscientious reasons, triggering a fight that was larger than any of his bouts in the ring. What followed was a period of legal battles, of cultural obsession, and in some ways of being the very embodiment of the civil rights movement located in the heart of one man. Muhammad Ali was the tip of the arrow, and Leigh Montville brilliantly assembles all the boxing, the charisma, the cultural and political shifting tides, and ultimately the enormous waft of entertainment that always surrounded Ali. Sting Like a Bee: Muhammed Ali vs. the United States of America, 1966-1971is an important and incredibly engaging book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. D. Jackson.
