Now 101 of those engaging tales have been brought together in one book, cleverly illustrated by his long-time friend Gary Brown. Though he does admit to being destination-oriented at times, many of his columns focus on the little things that make the journey itself the most memorable - the rhythm of the road, the music of the bik, the beauty of the ride, and the exhilaration of being at one with the bike and the road.

    Revisit the golden age of trains with these two delightful illustrated children’s stories from the early 20th century!Painstakingly prepared for new lives in the digital age, these books about vintage trains were written and illustrated at a time when nearly everyone rode the rails – including children. Because of that, the stories captured the imaginations of little ones around the world. Turn-of-the-century children were captivated by the allure of mighty steam trains that sent vapor high up into the sky and whizzed through the countryside at what at the time must have seemed to be tremendous speed. And now a whole new generation of children -- and adults -- can appreciate the wonderful old trains from that era.2 Illustrated Vintage Train Stories contains high-quality reproductions from the following books about antique trains: The Fast ExpressOriginally published by M. A. Donohue & Co. in 1917, The Fast Express features a marriage of sepia-tone illustrations and text, along with brightly colored drawings of life in and around old trains. It focuses on the adventures of young brother and sister George and Edith Foster as they go on a train journey by themselves to visit their aunt. My Book of TrainsOriginally published by Saalfield Publishing Company in 1919, My Book of Trains features lush colored illustrations from the turn of the 20th century. The illustrations focus on types of trains, the parts of a train and the depot, giving both fun and educational glimpses into the world of trains in a way that is accessible to children as well as adults.

    The effect that recent technological advances in aviation-related software, hardware, and infrastructure have had on pilots’ visual flying skills and their increased reliance on such devices during cloudless flights is examined in this authoritative reference. Integrated Sensory Flying (ISF), the revolutionary flight training program, is at the center of this discussion and answers a long-awaited call for a visual flight instruction program similar to that of Basic Attitude Instruments (BAI). Core 21st Century Flight Training concepts such as flight phases, task prioritization, and proficiency segments for performance maneuvers—all of which lead to improved training efficiency and intelligent aeronautical decision making—are discussed, as well as visual situational awareness. Every maneuver of every primary flight training rating from Private ASEL to MEI is taught from the perspective of an examiner with countless checkride insights. Additional information is also provided on integrating references, scenario-based training, and FAA special-emphasis programs including the TAA Safety Study and the Human Factors Design Standard.

    Commo. Dudley Wright Knox took a practitioner's approach to maritime history, helping to frame a global mission for the U.S. Navy. Having graduated with the U.S. Naval Academy Class of 1897, he commanded a variety of warships and flag headquarters. He served in combat during the 1898 Spanish-American War, the Boxer Rebellion, and in the Philippines. With intelligence, Knox lead efforts to establish the "special relationship" between the Royal Navy and U.S. Navy during two world wars. Helping to realize the visions of a "navy second to none" Knox assisted President Franklin D. Roosevelt in educating Americans to understand the nexus between war and peace. Unlike armies or air forces, Knox argued that navies provided unique means, "not to make war but to preserve peace, not to be predatory but to shield the free development of commerce, not to unsettle the world but to stabilize it through the promotion of law and order." 21st Century Knox offers a primer on the thinking of the man who exerted an enormous influence on the U.S. Navy during the first fifty years of the twentieth century. His ideas on questions of strategy, leadership, and maritime operations remain relevant to naval professionals into the twenty-first century and beyond.
