Hiking Maryland and Delaware
Hiking Maryland and Delaware
by David Lillard, Chris Reiter
Paperback from Falcon
ISBN: 1560447214

A blue heron freezes against a backdrop of marsh grass, waiting to strike; 50 miles away, wild ponies stir as a wind shift brings a faint smell of human on the salt air; louder, then louder still a ruffled grouse drums deep in a hemlock forest to the rhythms of Gunpowder Falls. And...you are there. Hiking Maryland and Delaware explores-in over 60 easy-to-follow, and easy-to-get-to hikes-the diverse habitats and wildlife preserved in surprisingly large network of trails and parks. Weaving the natural history and rich cultural history of two of our nation's oldest states, the authors guide you through the rugged mountains, old-growth hardwood forests, salt-marsh wildlife preserves, and Piedmont stream valleys that attracted settlers to the region more than three centuries ago. Former president of the American Hiking Society David Lillard and American Hiker editor Chris Reiter team up to provide useful hiking tips and quality hiking destinations, advice on hiking with children, and tons of suggestions to round out your trip-like ice cream in Sharpsburg after a day hiking through Antietam National Battlefield. With up-to-date maps, a trail finder table, and thorough hike descriptions, Hiking Maryland and Delaware brings you everything you need for an outing to remember.

Sport, Politics, and Literature in the English Renaissance
Sport, Politics, and Literature in the English Renaissance
by Gregory M. Colon Semenza
Hardcover from Univ of Delaware Pr
ISBN: 0874138442

This is the first book-length study of the crucial relationship between sport and the political and imaginative literature of Renaissance England. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, educators, medical practitioners, and military scientists were among the many contemporaries who praised sport as necessary and functional--physiologically beneficial to the individual practitioner, vital to the preparedness of the military, and necessary to the maintenance of traditional class hierarchy. Sport's significance in the period is perhaps best registered by its literal and metaphorical centrality in such popular works of literature as Shakespeare's histories, Walton's Compleat Angler, and Milton's Samson Agonistes, as well as its prominence in ecclesiastical and secular legislation and polemics. By reconstructing a cultural history of sport and investigating representations of it in contemporary prose, poetry, and drama, the book demonstrates sport's pivotal position in the interlocking spheres of Renaissance science, politics, and art.
