• Description : From the pages of the New Yorker, Esquire, and the Paris Review, “Edward Hoagland’s collected stories are dazzling” (Ann Beattie). Saul Bellow called him “one of the very best writers of his generation.” Newsweek praised him as “a marvelous writer.” Edward Hoagland, renowned travel writer and essayist, is also an extraordinary writer of fiction, as readers of his stories “The Final Fate of Alligators” and “Kwan’s Coney Island” can attest. Assembled here are stories new and old, spanning from 1960 to the present. First published in the New Yorker, the Paris Review, Esquire, American Review, and Saul Bellow’s famous literary magazine, The Noble Savage, and widely anthologized, in The Best American Short Stories among others, Hoagland’s work continues to amaze readers with evocative prose and finely etched characters. There are the death-defying motorcycle trick riders in the carnival’s Devil’s Tub, a man who keeps an alligator in his bathtub, a Chinese laundry worker in Coney Island in search of love, a frontiersman who saves himself from a grizzly bear by hiding in a beaver dam, three men from a circus looking for trouble at a rodeo, and a washed-up boxer trying to hang on to his career. From the cramped and gritty streets of New York City to the wide open spaces of the Old West, Hoagland’s characters pine, ache, create, observe, love, learn, and live in such precisely rendered stories that we are transported into each of their peculiar worlds.

• Description : Alligator Metabolism: Studies on Chemical Reactions in Vivo presents a summary of research in vivo on the metabolism of alligators. The volume contains updates of earlier investigations which were presented in Biochemistry of the Alligator, a Study of Metabolism in Slow Motion (1964). Since then, with the aid of better equipment and better methods, it seemed time to correlate and summarize the findings of researchers who have used this remarkable experimental animal with profit. The primary purpose of almost all the research was not to determine the nature of the alligator, but to understand biochemical reactions in vivo and the alligator was a means to that end. The book begins with a chapter on natural history for those scientists, wild-life experts, alligator farmers, zoo keepers etc., whose primary interest is in the nature and habits of the intact alligator. This is followed by separate chapters that deal with metabolic rate, anaerobic glycolysis, digestion-growth-protein synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism, amino acid metabolism, respiration and acid-base balance, and kidney function.

• Description : The Alligator was an amphibious machine designed and patented in Canada in the late 1880s. This warping tug was capable of towing a log boom across a lake and then portaging itself to the next body of water. Steam-powered and rugged, it was one of the pioneers in the mechanization of the forest industry and for more than thirty years was ubiquitous in northern Ontario until eclipsed by its worthy successor the Russel tug. "This long-overdue book on the Alligator Warping Tug, designed and built by West & Peachey of Simcoe, Ontario, is a welcome addition to the libraries of those intrigued by Canada’s story and particularly lumbering history." — R. John Corby, curator emeritus, Canada Science and Technology Museum "By enabling access to the upper reaches of the Ottawa River and its many tributaries, the Alligator tug extended the social and economic stability provided by the timber industry and supported the populating of this vast region. Alligators of the North is a wonderful touchstone for all who share this heritage." — Mary Campbell, mayor of McNab-Braeside Township, Renfrew County [...] by Publisher : 'Dundurn'

• Description : Office copier folklore—those tattered sheets of cartoons, mottoes, zany poems, defiant sayings, parodies, and crude jokes that regularly circulate in office buildings everywhere—is the subject of this innovative study. this type of folklore represents a major form of tradition in modern America, and the authors have compiled this raw data for scholarship—and entertainment.
