This is an expedition book. Mount Roraima, at the border of Guyana, Venezuela, and Brazil, is a tepui--a table-top mountain. One of the oldest geologic formations on Earth it is Arthur Conan Doyle's "Lost World". Roraima's 25-square-mile summit rises abruptly from the surrounding jungles 5000 feet below and is bounded on all sides by sheer towering cliffs. Sir Walter Raleigh described Roraima during his 1595 expedition, but it took nearly three centuries before the first European found a path to Roraima's summit. Nine decades after that, in 1973, another team of Europeans conquered Roraima's Grand Prow, a sheer overhanging sandstone wall on the Guyana side… Read More

Description:
Minneapolis: Coffee House Press, April 2014. Trade Paperback. First Edition / First Printing (stated). Fine. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Light wear to lower rear corner. Covers clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 253 pages. An alternative American history in which colonialism, jingoism, capitalism, and faith are represented by baseball. Personal and political, it twines Japanese internment camps with the Yankees; Walmart with the Kansas City Royals; and facial hair patterns with militarism, Guantanamo, and the modern security state. An essay, a miscellany, and a passionate unsettling of Josh Ostergaard's relationship with our national pastime, it allows for both the clover of a childhood outfield and the persistence of the game's service to those in power.

Description:
New York: Custom House. Paperback. March 2020. Advance Reader's Edition. Fine. Slight reading wear to bottom edge of front cover, otherwise As New. 292 pages. For decades, statisticians, social scientists, psychologists, and economists have spent massive amounts of precious time thinking about whether streaks actually exist. After all, a substantial number of decisions that we make in our everyday lives are quietly rooted in this one question: If something happened before, will it happen again? Is there such a thing as being in the zone? Can someone have a "hot hand"? Or is it simply a case of seeing patterns in randomness? Or, if streaks are possible, where can they be found? Sports fans and science geeks alike will enjoy these travels in the world where numbers, luck, and superstardom meet.
