The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

And Miles to Go Before I Sleep: Travel Adventures
selected by Deborah Stevenson

Ah, exploration and adventure--a lovely thing to watch from a safe distance. I've been greatly enjoying the Shackleton books that have come out recently, and they've formed the core of a list of titles that take the old "Voyages and travel" category to serious heights, depths, and distances. There have been a multitude of such travails in the world; this list focuses on nonfiction about those who tackled their various frontiers out of choice rather than necessity (so no Donner parties here) . Is it cold in here or is it me?
