              A new edition of a classic McKibben book about what it takes to be a world-class athlete and where the true meaning of endurance can be found At 37, the celebrated writer and environmentalist Bill McKibben took a break from the life of the mind to put himself to the ultimate test...: devoting a year to train as a competitive cross-country skier. Consulting with personal trainers, coaches, and doctors at the US Olympic Center, he followed the rigorous training regimen of a world-class athlete. Along the way, he learned to cope with his physical limitations and, when his father was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor, discovered something about the real meaning of endurance. Told with his trademark intelligence, humor, and honesty, Long Distance is an insightful examination of the culture and mind-set of endurance athletes, and a moving and inspiring meditation on finding balance in our often harried lives.

              Radio Free Vermont (Hardback)

              By McKibben, Bill

              -A book that's also the beginning of a movement, Bill McKibben's debut novel Radio Free Vermont follows a band of Vermont patriots who decide that their state might be better off as its own republic. As the host of Radio Free Vermont---underground, underpowered, and underfoot---s...eventy-two-year-old Vern Barclay is currently broadcasting from an -undisclosed and double-secret location.- With the help of a young computer prodigy named Perry Alterson, Vern uses his radio show to advocate for a simple yet radical idea: an independent Vermont, one where the state secedes from the United States and operates under a free local economy. But for now, he and his radio show must remain untraceable, because in addition to being a lifelong Vermonter and concerned citizen, Vern Barclay is also a fugitive from the law. In Radio Free Vermont, Bill McKibben entertains and expands upon an idea that's become more popular than ever--seceding from the United States. Along with Vern and Perry, McKibben imagines an eccentric group of activists who carry out their own version of guerilla warfare, which includes dismissing local middle school children early in honor of 'Ethan Allen Day' and hijacking a Coors Light truck and replacing the stock with local brew. Witty, biting, and terrifyingly timely, Radio Free Vermont is Bill McKibben's fictional response to the burgeoning resistance movement---

              A powerful call to arms from one of the world?s most eminent environmentalists. Thirty years ago, environmentalist Bill McKibben?s bestselling The End of Nature - now regarded as a classic - was the first book to alert us to global warming. Now, in Falter, he suggests that the hu...man race may have played itself out. Climate change, robotics and artificial intelligence may spell the end of humanity as we know it. Unless we act now. Falter tells the story of these converging trends and of the ideological fervour that keeps us from bringing them under control. Drawing on McKibben?s experience in building 350.org, the first global citizens movement to combat climate change, it offers some possible ways out of the trap. We?re at a bleak moment in human history, and we must confront the reality or watch the civilisation our forebears built slip away. This is a timely, sobering and inspiring rallying cry to save not only our planet but also our humanity. 'McKibben is the world?s best green journalist.?-Time 'The most effective environmental activist of our age. Anyone interested in making a difference can learn from him.?-Tim Flannery

              In The End of Nature, Bill McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about global warming. Those warnings went mostly unheeded; now, he argues, we need to acknowledge that we've waited too long, and that massive change is already underway. In Eaarth, he surveys the changes al...ready taking place and considers what they will mean for our future.
