The Land of Strong Men
A.M. Chisholm - 1919
Excerpt and one of them, Gavin, was reputed to be the strongest man in the neighborhood. The daughter, a long-limbed slip of a girl who rode like a cow-puncher, was about the boy's age. Though Godfrey French had a ranch it was worked scarcely at all. The boys did not like work, and apparently did not have to. Godfrey French was reputed to have money. His ranch was a hang-out for what were known as "remittance men," young Englishmen who received more or less regular allowances from home--or perhaps to keep away from home. There were rumors of gambling and hard drinking at French's ranch. "Well, I'll take you home," the boy said. "You can ride my pony. He's on a rope a mile from here. But I'll have to hang up this buck, or the coyotes will chew him." He found two small saplings close together, bent them down, trimmed them and lashed their tops. Over these he placed the tied legs of the buck. With a little search he found a long dry pole. With this he had a tripod. As he hoisted with the pole the spring

Also a problem: Abbie is falling in love with him. The first novel from screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker, OLD MAN JOHNSON is for the old (and young) at heart.Cover design by Kristen Radtke.Cover painting by Mark Allison.
Beating Patellar Tendonitis
Martin Koban - 2013
The author’s story: “Back when I suffered from patellar tendonitis, I thought I was doing everything possible to treat this injury. I was stretching regularly, warming up before games, strengthening my legs, and doing whatever else doctors suggested might help. However, the pain never stopped. Sure, some days were better than others were, but I was still in pain and my athletic performance was severely handicapped. I was frustrated with my lack of progress, and I couldn’t believe that for all the effort and dedication I put into my training, I was being punished with pain that was impossible to get rid of. The worst part was that every time I thought I had made progress, the pain returned. The whole experience was so depressing that I almost quit playing my sport. Today, my knees are completely pain-free. I can play my favorite sports and train exercises that are extremely tough on my knees, such as deep single-leg squats, without having to worry about knee pain. I would have never imagined this to be possible. Today, my legs are stronger than before my injury, and the best part is that I know exactly how I can continue to get them into even better shape without any risk. The reason I struggled with patellar tendonitis for so long wasn’t my fault. I already knew some of the things I had to do, but to beat the odds, I needed to fix a number of hidden causes for patellar tendonitis and learn how to strengthen my weakened knees without reinjuring them. It took 3 years of research and self-experimentation to collect this knowledge, but now it is easily available in this book.” – Martin Koban, Author of Total Knee Health The reason people struggle with healing jumper’s knee is because they’re using an outdated treatment approach that is based on research just as outdated. Your rehab efforts are doomed to fail if you don’t eliminate all hidden causes for patellar tendonitis. These often ignored causes determine how much stress you patellar tendon is subjected to when you’re moving and if you don’t correct them, you will continue to overload your patellar tendon and the injury will simply reappear.Beating Patellar Tendonitis will hand you a proven treatment formula to fix these hidden causes of jumper’s knee and give you the tools you need to stay pain-free for life. The advice in this book is based on 3 years of self-experimentation through trial and error, hundreds of research studies published in academic journals, and the combined knowledge of thought leaders in the fitness industry. You Need to Buy This Book If: You’re an athlete with patellar tendonitis and you want to set new personal records You want to get rid of tendonitis knee pain once and for all You play volleyball, basketball, or any other sport that requires a lot of jumping and you want to stay on top of your competition You’re an athletic trainer and want your clients to stay healthy You’re a doctor and want to learn more ways how you can help your patients beat patellar tendonitis
