Dan Van Tassel joins Lawrence Knorr on the Sunbury Press Books Show, to discuss travel from a unique perspective: by examination of classic narratives, stories and road trips in "Journey by the Book - A Guide to Tales of Travel." Journeys, real and imagined are looked upon here, including Homer's "Odyssey," "Gulliver's Travels," and "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner." The tours of Mark Twain, John Steinbeck, Jack Kerouac and Bill Bryson are also here, the overland travels of Marco Polo, and the seafaring adventures of Captain James Cook among others take the reader inside the accounts. The journey itself becomes the destination. Dan Van Tassel is a graduate of St. Olaf College, and earned his Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Literature from the University of Iowa. A professor at Pacific Lutheran and California State University San Marcos, Van Tassel served as academic dean and professor of English at Muskingum College for more than twenty years. He is also the author of "Back to Barron," a chronicle of early life in smalltown, rural America.  Now retired, he lives in Northfield, Minnesota.

Dogs Are Smarter Than People via Anchor

Lately, I've been working with a lot of writers who are sending in their stories and they seem to have a great fear of the mighty exclamation point. And I get it. I get their concerns, the exclamation point has a pretty bad rap. We've all seen stories where every bit of dialogue ends in an exclamation point. Or our boss sends us an email and everything is a sentence fragment ending with that exclamation point. The BBC even has an article about what overusing the exclamation point says about you, writing: “Bill Bryson – writes, the exclamation mark is classically used ‘to show strong emotion (“Get out!”) or urgency (“Help me!”).' If part of the point of punctuation is to change the timbre of the voice – another part is to get you out of a hole. Punctuation saves lives: there's a meaningful difference between ‘Duck' and ‘Duck!' Both of Bryson's examples are notable for the underlying sense of emergency, need for security, and atmosphere of fear. No wonder, then, that newspapers have historically referred to exclamation marks as ‘astonishers', ‘gaspers' and ‘screamers'; no wonder newspapers have been their most voracious advocates.” They consider it the selfie of the internet. I think it's sort of the selfie of the punctuation club, too. It's like “Yo. Exclamation mark is in the house. Everyone give it some attention!” And the BBC article goes on to say, “Overuse of any punctuation mark tells us something about ourselves, in the same way overuse of any object does. How you punctuate your sentences might have something to do with how you punctuate your life.” Here's the thing: the exclamation point is not your enemy and it's okay to use it in moderation. Even the god-like purveyor of all things grammatical in U.S. novels, the Chicago Manual of Style says that the exclamation point can be used, just do it sparingly or it loses its effectiveness. This is really true about everything from em-dashes to semicolons to the sexy and addictive ellipses…. Cough. See what I did there? When you avoid the exclamation point in dialogue obsessively, it isn't helpful and you end up with something like She shouted, “I can't believe you.” Or He yelled, “I'm going to kill you, so you betta run.” Or They hollered, “Help me.” It looks dumb. The reader thinks, “Um, are they really shouting if there is no exclamation point?” As the writer, you want to be in control of your world and part of that control is making sure that you don't give the reader conflicting signals through verb and punctuation because a conflicted reader is a reader who won't keep reading, who won't keep trusting you the writer to take them on a journey into another world. So, if you make someone shout or yell or holler in dialogue, really make them do it. Pretend they are a politician making a tweet or someone being ironic and throw them all in there. No, just kidding. Only use one at a time. Seriously! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/carriejonesbooks/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/carriejonesbooks/support

We have the privilege today of speaking with the one and only, Pony! Today we begin the show by wishing we had been recording the "pre-chat" portion with Pony beforehand. As you will find out as we get deeper into the episode, he is a fantastic storyteller and his thoughts and perspectives around hiking and the trail, are refreshing to say the least. We hop right into the show as Pony brings us through the evolution from Clay Bonneyman Evans to how he defined it as finding his "alter ego" of Pony. We chat about his introduction into the "thru-hiking world" and how it just clicked with his brain and how he operates. We dive into what this means, what does it mean when he says, "it works for my brain?" Keep your hats on because we dive deep into the perspectives and outlooks on the massively popular (and directly massively unpopular with thru-hikers) books "Wild" and "A Walk in the Woods" by Cheryl Strayed and Bill Bryson. Once again, a truly refreshing take as we chat about the goals of these books, and why they are perceived so negatively by hikers, when in fact they are truly inspirational and great storytelling. We quickly avoid the hornets nest that is documenting your hike by video on trail, and lightly tread, but just for a moment, upon the thoughts and feelings around this growing activity. We chat about Pony and how writing is his process for understanding his journey. Not just his hiking journey's, but this journey through life. We talk about his process and how he remains in the moment on trail, while continuing to pursue his passion. We chat about his growth as a writer and author throughout the years. We go deep into the "Red-Lining" concept. A very deep dive as it is something both Pony and ourselves are passionate about. We chat about the dangers of being too much of a purist, and the growth of the trail community as it begins to tackle this very turbulent concept. We chat about how this concept can be utilized on some trails, while others it is not only impossible, but not even safe. It unravels from here, the threads of this thought continue for many minutes. We chat about hiking clean and the feelings it invokes in body and mind. We chat about the CDT and bear tub claws on the PCT. We chat about writing and the feeling of being a character in a story, we chat about being in a "snow globe world", we chat about the "Blowdown, Snowdown, Hodown", we chat about connection and relationships off trail while being on trail, we chat about not receiving merit badges for suffering, we chat about his wife and my mother knowing each other in this small world we call thru-hiking (Hi Jodi and Sundance!) and we get wonderfully lost in Pony's gift for storytelling. To name a few. Truly a wonderful chat with Pony, thank you for sharing some time and your story with us! FAVORITE QUOTES: "My brain is at its best when it is on trail" "I have to write about it, because writing about it is who I am" "Every footstep you take literally brings you into a new reality" "The trail is a stage on which I as a human can be fully myself" To learn more about Pony and read his books click below: Website: www.claybonnymanevans.com Email: claybonnyman@gmail.com To learn more about us click below: Website: www.ElevenSkys.com

Douglas Adams passed away 21 years ago this week, so it seemed like a good time to revisit his amazing work. These are short, digestible books that are jam-packed full of jokes and mad-cap adventures. The first book in the series (the eponymous Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) is especially full of non-stop zaniness - the chapters are only a few pages long, but every single one feels like it has something big happening in it, and every page has a joke. The books also raise big philosophical questions, but answers them in a truly unique way. Instead of trying to dispense wisdom or tell you how to live your life, the books poke fun at the entire notion of universal answers to life's big questions. Instead, Adams suggests we could all do with taking life a little less seriously and finding our own answers to those big questions.As always, we also recommend and discuss some similar books if you are looking for more great books to read. This week we recommend Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, No One is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood, and A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson.Later on this week we'll also be giving away a complete set of all five HGTTG books, as well as Adam's final, posthumously published work, The Salmon of Doubt.

Welcome to the show you beautiful people.This episode starts with a brand new segment called Jack-Ask (which is a terrible name and needs to be changed).  For some reason a listener thinks your host, Jack, is the person to ask for advice on a Christmas dilemma.  What do you do when a guest brings very little food to the table, but takes loads of leftovers when they leave?Then it's the triumphant return of Robin Sings (which should really be called Robin and Juno Sing).  We had a request from Bob Baker for the girls to sing Where Are You Christmas, so that's what they did.We also had a request from Bob Baker to take a look at the British TV show Old Jack's Boat which has a lovely Christmas episode.  It's called The Christmas Quest and it's a real tearjerker.  I couldn't find the episode to watch, but you can listen to the story here:https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/radio/old-jacks-boat-christmas-questThis episode we have another Yule Log.  This one features Lil Bub an internet famous cat who's very cute and sits in front of a fire.If you want to watch it, who am I to stop you.  Here's a link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuHZSbPJhaYThen we have everyone's favourite segment What The Dickens.  This episode we talk about why the chapters of a Christmas Carol are called staves, why Scrooge wants to retire to Bedlam and why every idiot who goes around with Merry Christmas on his lips should be buried with a stake of holly through his heart.This week's recommendation is anything by the author Bill Bryson.  His books are funny and interesting and they kept me company on my short tour around Wales.If you want to get in touch, the email is totalchristmas@gmail.comMerry Christmas

Bill Bryson said, “To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” This is the experience I hope we have each time we look at these familiar verses–to feel as if we experience them for the first time and not to let their familiarity cause us to take them for granted.

Tim Moore has been referred to as ‘Bill Bryson on two wheels'. Any reader of his adventures - both on and off a bike - will  appreciate why the comparison is justified. In his first cycling travelogue, he set off on the route of that year's Tour de France just weeks before the professionals. He went on to recreate ‘the most appalling bike race of all time' - the 1914 Giro d'Italia - on a vintage bike. More recently he embarked upon a brutal cycle following the stages of the 1941 Vuelta a España. Ever the glutton for punishment, he's also ‘The Cyclist Who Went Out In The Cold' who set off on an East German shopping bike along the route of EuroVelo 13, the Iron Curtain Trail… The Cycling Europe Podcast chatted to him in a Tube carriage at the London Transport Museum.

Gail Muller is an adventurer, educator and author. Growing up in Cornwall, she was sporty and outdoorsy, but at 14 was told she'd need to use a wheelchair by the age of 40 due to muscular-skeletal issues. She has an extraordinary story of her journey of experiencing chronic pain for 15 years, and dedicating much of that time to finding a solution, which she later did, for the most part.At 41 she embarked on one of the toughest treks in the world - over 2200 miles in the USA - The Appalachian Trial. She wrote a book about it called Unlost which is an uplifting and moving account of her  journey in the wild outdoors,  dealing with extreme elements and facing her fears. In this conversation Gail emphasises how she got into hiking later than most, and encourages others, particularly women, to occupy that role of adventurer too. We speak about her  journey with  chronic pain, having learned a great deal about it and put herself through a multitude of experiences including fasting in a Thai jungle for twelve days, Gail  offers up some great advice for listeners who might be dealing with pain. On being told by a doctor that he did not know what the problem was, we discuss the importance of being cautiously critically analytical of professional opinion, asking questions, and not taking a doctor's advice to ‘give up hope.'Inspired by Bill Bryson, and after losing a friend to suicide, Gail tells me about her decision to embark on this mammoth trip. She  shares with me her greatest fears, including that which came from being raped as a teenager. Having unpicked some of these, Gail has ‘done the work'  which has enabled her to recognise that these fears reside in her head, and finds ways  to learn how to manage them, which she graciously shares.We talk about the saying ‘hike your own hike' - a important metaphor to accept that we're all on our own journeys, and she tells me how she made peace with doing things ‘her way.'We speak about tactics for resilience, about surrender and what being so exposed to the harshest of nature's elements, did for her.*Trigger warning: during this episode there is mention of sexual assault and suicideFind out more about Gail on her website or her Instagram.

  Quantum Quote:  “Our energy answer comes up every morning.” – Joanne Coons “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucius     Even when more and more people are waking up to the fact that we need to make this transition work towards becoming a clean energy Earth in the next few years, there are still people who don't think it's possible or it's too hard and costly for them to take part in.   Did you know that going off fossil fuels and anything gas-related is actually much more comfortable and safer for you, the kids, and your family as a whole?   If we'll just take 100 square miles – which is nothing in terms of its massive territory – and transform those wasted lands into clean energy producers, it could power all the energy needed by the whole country!   Someone out there is living a life without owning anything that is fueled by gas, and believe it or not, she's living an incredibly cozy life!     Yes, it isn't easy. Yes, it won't happen overnight. There might even be times when you'll have thoughts of giving up and just going back to business as usual. However, if you'll just continue to work at it and wait a bit longer, you might be surprised big time!   It's definitely doable. We just have to decide that we want to do it and make it happen. In every little thing that we do, we are walking towards the change that drives us nearer to our goals.   Be into energy and be able to save your own energy as well. Keep advocating even when you're not sure if someone's listening. Someday, they will. Lead by example.     Joanne Coons is a retired High School teacher and currently an Adjunct Professor teaching PV theory, design, installation and maintenance at Hudson Valley Community College's TEC-SMART northern campus.   Joanne currently resides in Clifton Park, NY where she spends her everyday life with her husband, going all clean energy with nothing in their home that is powered by gas and/or fossil fuels. Since childhood, Joanne has always had an appreciation for energy. In her perspective, education is the key to change. That's why she's trying to create opportunities to educate people about the science and their actions that produce carbon.      Sign up for a free webclass to discover how easy it is  to get ultra-efficient geothermal heating and cooling installed in your home – without the pain of emptying your savings account.   In “The Power Of Earth With Comfort” From Climate Master webclass, you'll discover the answers every homeowner needs to know, including:   How geothermal heating and cooling can draw energy from the ground beneath our feet (for pennies) Why homeowners everywhere are making the switch The secrets to securing utility incentives and tax credits to pay for a large portion of your new geothermal system and much more…   If you are tired of rising energy costs and want to save up to 70% on your energy bills, Go to www.AWESomeEarthKind.com and register now for this FREE special event that will show you exactly how to get geothermal heating and cooling installed in your home.   We'd like to hear from you!

The more you vote with your dollar, the more that this transition will occur.     Aha Moment: “In regard to renewables, there was a professor,  Dr. Richard Perez. I saw his peer-reviewed scientific study and I really respect him. He studies how much renewable energy it would take to completely be 100% renewable. He puts it into language in a way that he relates to common things that we understand. So, he suggests to be more local and have a grid so that we have balance. He also thinks that if we overbuild solar and wind to certain extent to maintain the intermittency, we should have enough electricity, and he has statistics to back it up. His data looks really solid. His ideas look solid. And I think that's a really cool idea. I thought, we want to do this, and his works shows that we can.” – Joanne Coons   (Visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG-9cxu9Mk0 and watch minute 20:20 to see how much land it would take to power NYS.)     Best Advice She's Ever Received: “Sleep on something before I act.” – Joanne Coons   Personal Habit that Contributes to Success: “I do try to take care of myself so I can take care of others.
