In Saigon during the waning days of the Vietnam War, a small-time journalist named John Converse thinks he'll find action - and profit - by getting involved in a big-time drug deal. But back in the States, things go horribly wrong for him. Dog Soldiers perfectly captures the underground mood of America in the 1970s, when amateur drug dealers and hippies encountered profiteering cops and professional killers - and the price of survival was dangerously high....

In Fun with Problems, Robert Stone demonstrates once again that he is "one of our greatest living writers" (Los Angeles Times). The pieces in this new volume vary greatly in length—some are almost novellas, others no more than a page—but all share the signature blend of longing, violence, black humor, sex and drugs that has helped Stone illuminate the dark corners of the human soul. Entire lives are laid out with remarkable precision, in captivating prose: a screenwriter carries on a decades-long affair with a beautiful actress, whose descent into addiction he can neither turn from nor share; a bored husband picks up a mysterious woman only to find that his ego has led him woefully astray; a world-beating Silicon Valley executive receives an unwelcome guest at his mansion in the hills; a scuba dive guides uneasy newlyweds to a point of no return. Fun with Problems showcases Stone's great gift: to pinpoint and make real the impulses--by turns violently coercive and quietly seductive--that cause us to conceal, reveal, and betray our very selves.

The Central California coast has some of the most spectacular scenery in the state. Rugged coastal terraces are backdropped by mountain ranges that run parallel to the Pacific coastline. Picturesque communities dot a landscape abundant with valleys, white sand beaches, cool forests, and natural preserves. The surf crashes onto craggy headlands and carved canyons along the Big Sur stretch of coast.
 
Day Hikes On the California Central Coast includes 120 hikes along 400 miles of coastline between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The hikes describe how and where to access the best trails and features from Highway 1, offering many opportunities to explore the beautiful landscape. Highlights include tidepools, off-shore rock formations, huge dunes, wildlife observation sites, expansive overlooks, canyons, waterfalls, and lighthouses. The best trails in the state and county parks are featured, as well as city trails that are often overlooked. A wide range of hikes accommodates amateur to avid hikers.
 
Companion guides include Day Hikes Around Monterey and Carmel, Day Hikes Around Big Sur, Day Hikes Around San Luis Obispo, Day Hikes Around Santa Barbara, and Day Hikes On the California Southern Coast.

Yosemite is one of the world’s most loved national parks. The park lies in central California on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Range. It is best known for Yosemite Valley, with its huge granite monoliths and long waterfalls; the rolling, boulder-strewn meadows along the Tuolumne River; and the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Sierras. More than 90% of Yosemite is roadless wilderness and home to more than 750 miles of trails.
 
This collection of 80 day hikes in and around Yosemite provides access to all of the well-known park features as well as many lesser-known trails and destinations. Highlights include incredible waterfalls, granite monoliths, expansive alpine meadows, giant sequoia groves, and unforgettable views from unique perspectives that are only accessible from the hiking trails. Outstanding scenery surrounds every trail regardless of its difficulty.
 
Companion guides include Day Hikes In Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Day Hikes Around Sonoma County, and Day Hikes Around Napa Valley.
