North Pole Tenderfoot: A Rookie Goes on a North Pole Expedition Following in Admiral Peary's Footsteps
Doug Hall


Why would Doug Hall follow in Robert Peary's 1909 sled tracks to the North Pole, despite the grueling terrain and temperatures between 15 and 62 degrees below zero? His goal was to resurrect the spirit of Peary's journey in a world increasingly driven by instant gratification, short term business focus, and lack of sustained dedication to great causes. Peary succeeded where some 578 expeditions before him had failed. North Pole Tenderfoot is Doug’s attempt to let the reader experience what is possible when one does what Peary did: think big.

Personal Foul: A First-Person Account of the Scandal That Rocked the NBA
Tim Donaghy


We also have a few SIGNED copies of Tim Donaghy's book!

A searing look at pro basketball from the perspective of a referee who succumbed to a gambling addiction, which ultimately led to a prison sentence. With a foreword by the FBI Special Agent who worked the Gambino case, Personal Foul reveals in unflinching honesty how the fast life of professional sports can tempt and trap the unwary and unwise.

In the end, Tim Donaghy returns to the redemptive power of telling the truth about his experiences, his addictions, and his insight into what happened on and off the court. An unforgettable page-turner, this book will confirm readers' suspicions about the influence of the front offices of major league sports, the corrosive power of money, fame and power, and needing to heed the inner voice of right and wrong.

Philadelphia Story
Lori Litchman


Founders and Famous Families from the City of Brotherly Love

Founders and Famous Families: Philadelphia is an in-depth look at how significant founders, families, and firsts made Philadelphia not only the birthplace of our country, but also truly a city of firsts. Through their efforts they stamped their mark on Philadelphia with parks, streets, and landmarks bearing their names.

Lori Litchman's Founders and Famous Families: Philadelphia brings to life the founding families’ histories, a history of lives lived large -- truly the Who’s Who (as well as the When and Where) of Philadelphia -- that when considered together, made the City of Brotherly Love the great metropolis it is today.

As a quick peek into the rich tapestry of local lore, Founders and Famous Families of Philadelphia focuses first on William Penn's creation of a city leading to the birth of our nation. Philadelphia as the first capital of the United States, the declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War and Benjamin Franklin. The arrival of the Quakers to Philadelphia and religious freedom is explored, as is the Abolition Movement and and Underground Railroad in Philadelphia. In her chapter "Health Firsts" the author reveals that Philadelphia is home to the first hospital, medical school, mental health hospital, eye hospital, children's hospital and the first medical school for women. William Penn called Philadelphia a "green country town" and so it is no surprise that the first Women's horticulture school was founded by Philadelphian Jane B. Haines. Teen idols Frankie Avalon and Bobby Rydell hailed from Pennsylvania and so is sports legend Wilt Chamberlain, one of the greatest and most dominant players in NBA history.

From the first hospital to the first paper mill, Philadelphia was the keystone to our developing nation in its formative years. Philadelphia is also home of America's first zoo, the oldest art museum and art school in the country and the first African American Church in the United States. Philadelphia literally means “City of Brotherly Love,” and much of the city’s growth is connected to the idea of unity.

Philadelphia’s familial history is topped off by noting the invention of the modern-day beehive by Lorenzo Langstroth and the ongoing debate about the inventor of the Philadelphia cheesesteak. GQ recognized Philadelphia as one of the "5 Best Beer Cities in America" which comes to no surprise as the city once was considered the greatest brewing city in the Western Hemisphere, the “Cradle of American Libation” - if you will.

Read, revel and enjoy.

Playing Ball with the Boys
Betsy Ross


The use of female sideline reporters is the fastest-growing new aspect of televised broadcasts of professional and college football. Names like Suzy Kolber, Erin Andrews, and Andrea Kremer are now as well known as any of the men in the booth. In recent years women have been sports columnists and reporters, talk-show hosts, even coaches and team administrators. And yet there has never been a book about this phenomenon.

Former ESPN news anchor Betsy Ross fills this void with Playing Ball with the Boys, a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the emerging role that women play in sports broadcasting and reporting as well as in the business of sports. Ross interviews a number of the biggest names—from Kolber and Kremer to USA Today columnist Christine Brennan and Lesley Visser and many others—who offer first-hand accounts of the struggles and the triumphs of women playing what has always been a man’s game.

She provides a history of this unique facet of the sports world, from pioneering female newspaper sports reporters to the celebrated breakthrough into televised sports by former Miss America Phyllis George, who is interviewed in the book. Ross covers the controversial moments, from locker room confrontations between players and female reporters to the infamous sideline interview in which Joe Namath attempted to kiss Suzy Kolber during a live broadcast.
Readers also learn of women who played pro sports on male teams or coached men’s teams. They meet a woman who runs a professional baseball team and another who is a team doctor.

Through this tale, Ross weaves her own story, recalling how she went from a small town in Indiana to the anchor’s chair at the largest sports network in the world, ESPN. She explains what it’s like for a woman to succeed in the male-dominated world of sports broadcasting.
