Two days east of Lukla was a pleasant yak pasture surrounded by high peaks. When Col. Jim Roberts set out to look for it in 1953, he ended up making the first ascent of Mera Peak and sowing the seeds of Himalayan tourism. Mera Peak has become a popular goal for trekkers and novice mountaineers, but few people climb to its true summit, and fewer still travel beyond it to find the secret yak pasture that sparked Roberts’ journey. The yak pasture was the Hongu Valley, a hidden sanctuary of grassland, lakes and glaciers linking Mera Peak with the Everest region and Island Peak to the north. Fifty years after Roberts, Mark Horrell embarked on a trek through Nepal’s Khumbu region to follow in his footsteps, climb the two trekking peaks at either end of the valley, and resolve a long-standing mystery about Mera Peak’s height. Join Mark on a captivating journey through this enchanting region of high mountains and remote valleys.

This special issue of Symbolism: An International Annual of Critical Aesthetics explores the various functions of metaphor in life writing. Looking at a range of autobiographical subgenres (pathography, disability narratives, memoirs of migration, autofiction) and different kinds of metaphors, the contributions seek to ‘map’ the possibilities of metaphor for narratively framing an individual life and for constructing notions of selfhood.

Abstract: Environmental contamination of the Arctic has widely been used as a worldwide pollution marker. Various classes of organic pollutants such as pesticides, personal care products, PAHs, flame retardants, biomass burning markers, and many others emerging contaminants have been regularly detected in Arctic samples. Although numerous papers have been published reporting data from the Canadian, Danish, and Norwegian Arctic regions, the environmental situation in Russian Arctic remains mostly underreported. Snow analysis is known to be used for monitoring air pollution in the regions with cold climate in both short-term and long-term studies. This paper presents the results of a nontargeted study on the semivolatile organic compounds detected and identified in snow samples collected at the Russian Artic Archipelago Novaya Zemlya in June 2016. Gas chromatography coupled to a high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometer enabled the simultaneous detection and quantification of a variety of pollutants including those from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) priority pollutants list, emerging contaminants (plasticizers, flame retardants-only detection), as well as the identification of novel Arctic organic pollutants, (e.g., fatty acid amides and polyoxyalkanes). The possible sources of these novel pollutants are also discussed. GC-HRMS enabled the detection and identification of emerging contaminants and novel organic pollutants in the Arctic, e.g., fatty amides and polyoxyalkanes. Graphical abstract: Highlights: Non-target GC/HRMS analysis of organic contaminants in Russian Arctic was carried out. Priority and novel pollutants in the Arctic environment were identified. Fatty acid amides were discovered in Arctic snow samples. Saturated oxidized hydrocarbons - a new class of contaminants in the Arctic samples.

While enjoying a cold but relaxing afternoon of early winter fishing just before Christmas with her good friend, Rooster, things suddenly change when they discover a rare Otterhound that has been caught in a trap. And when they find the dog's deceased owner nearby, things get even stranger when they're forced to make a very cold and dangerous trip through frozen marshland and icy water to save the dog and then get home before they and the dog freeze to death. In addition to dealing with a broken leg and the onset of hypothermia, the Otterhound is also pregnant, and Suzy and Josie decide to postpone their departure to the Cayman Islands and do everything they can to save the mom and her unborn puppies. While trying to piece together exactly what is going on with the dog, Suzy learns that the Otterhound's owner was the patriarch of an odd family that lives in the middle of the woods without running water or electricity. She also stumbles onto a black-market dog breeding enterprise operating in the area and is shocked to discover that Rooster's cousin, previously banished to Florida, has returned to the area and is now working for the dog breeding operation in a rather unique role. To further complicate things, Herman Billows, a representative working for a large energy company, is in the area and doing everything he can to obtain drilling rights to a newly discovered deposit of natural gas. Unfortunately for him, a lot of the land he's trying to secure the rights on is owned by Rooster and Suzy's mom, and they're determined to do whatever it takes to keep Billows from ever getting his hands on it. But Billows, a man who doesn't like to take no for an answer, has other ideas and is soon making life uncomfortable for everyone except the Friendly family who is more than willing to listen to what he has to offer. With their trip to Grand Cayman on hold until the Otterhound has recovered, Suzy finds herself in the middle of a strange series of events as well as in the middle of deep snow that continues to fall as winter arrives in full force. Instead of walking the beach, she ends up with various bruises and nineteen stitches, trudging through deep snow on skis, exploring dark caves, and dealing with a unique cast of characters that leaves her grumpy and has her neurons racing. The Case of the Overdue Otterhounds is the latest installment in B.R. Snow's popular Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries and deals with dogs, food, and the power of friendship set in one of the most beautiful spots on the planet.

With Suzy about to give birth to her daughter, her ability to perform basic physical movement is severely limited. But her neurons are firing on all cylinders and kick into overdrive when Dr. Jeremy Peters, the eccentric ex-boyfriend of the new veterinarian they've just hired, is found dead at a remote hunting lodge. And when they discover a collection of wolf-dog hybrids in cages, a research-interest of the dead scientist, Suzy and Josie find themselves with another problem: What do you do with two dozen hybrids who can't live on their own in the wild, but aren't domesticated enough to be eligible for adoption?As various versions of the dead scientist's will surface, the situation turns murky as Suzy and Chief Abrams, along with Detective Williams from the state police, try to identify the murderer from a list of suspects, all potential beneficiaries of Peters' estate, that includes the scientist's wife, his brother, his research assistant and one of the major investors in whatever 'research' the scientist's primary focus actually is. And the fact their new vet is also listed as a beneficiary adds another level of complexity and uncertainty to the question of the killer's identity.The Case of the Unfettered Utonagan is the latest installment in B.R. Snow's popular Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries and contains all the elements readers have come to expect and enjoy. Set against the backdrop of one of the beautiful spots on earth, all the major characters are back and in fine form as Suzy's latest challenge unfolds. And by the time the case is wrapped up, Suzy and the gang are left wondering about what the future holds for all of us, including the dogs.

Thanksgiving is approaching and Suzy and the gang are preparing for their annual dinner at the restaurant as well as dealing with the onset of winter. And when Suzy and the Chief spot what they believe is a bear cub on a local island, they're drawn into a bizarre and dangerous situation involving a crime ring operating in the area that is smuggling people across the border from Canada. And when the bear cub turns out to be an enormous Tibetan Mastiff, it soon becomes apparent they are dealing with a 'blast from the past.'Doing everything she can to remain on her best behavior and keep her mother from going off the planet, Suzy, at first, remains on the periphery of the investigation. But she is increasingly unable to stay on the sidelines as events heat up and become even more bizarre. And when things turn personal, she simply can't help herself and is determined to help the Chief and the FBI put a stop to the human trafficking ring as well as deliver some well-deserved justice to a dognapper.With a cast of characters that includes Rooster's cousin, Walter, a man with bad vision and a propensity to consistently do the wrong thing, and two FBI agents, one who finds Suzy's 'snooping' most annoying, the Case of the Tenacious Tibetan ramps us quickly as the gang tries to solve a complex puzzle while dealing with frigid boat rides and an early winter storm.

Here is a volume devoted exclusively to the buccaneers and pirates who infested the shores, bays, and islands of the Atlantic Coast of North America. This is no collection of Old Wives' Tales, half-myth, half-truth, handed down from year to year with the story more distorted with each telling, nor is it a work of fiction. This book is an accurate account of the most outstanding pirates who ever visited the shores of the Atlantic Coast. These are stories of stark realism. None of the artificial school of sheltered existence is included. Except for the extreme profanity, blasphemy, and obscenity in which most pirates were adept, everything has been included which is essential for the reader to get a true and fair picture of the life of a sea-rover. Bold, daring adventurers, whose deeds are still discussed from the far reaches of North America to the tropical islands of the West Indies, parade through the pages of this volume. There is hardly a square mile of sandy beach from the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland to Key West, Florida, which has not felt the imprint of the buccaneer's boot.
