"One man's journey on a bicycle ride across country is the spine of Cycling Nomad 1982. However, the story is rich with life lessons that will remind you of your life ride. Dave Simon re-examines his summer of 1982 and his book will stir you to re-examine your life as well - because what is personal is universal." - Bob Delaney, retired NBA Referee, author of "Covert: My Years Infiltrating the Mob" and "Surviving the Shadows" In 1982, while living in Milwaukee, WI, Dave Simon bought a bicycle, accessories, camping gear, trained for several months, then rode across 3,500+ miles in the United States and Canada. Adding in extra miles where he caught rides or hopped trains, he covered a total of close to 5,000 miles over almost four months. This is his journey. Simon's account captures the core of the United States and Canada in 1982 in its people and scenery. The sweat, pain, discoveries, and joys will resonate with bicyclists and those wanting to break out of their day-to-day life and take on a tough challenge. But his chronicles are not just for the adventuresome. Simon's narrative of the journey is peppered with keen insights, ideas, observations and revelations that will stay with the reader long after the book is put down.

Joint winner of the 2011 Biblical Archaeology Society Publication Award in the category "Best Scholarly Book on Archaeology" The archaeology of the Holy Land is undergoing major change. 'Historical Biblical Archaeology and the Future' describes the paradigm shift brought about by objective science-based dating methods, geographic information systems, anthropological models, and digital technology tools. The book serves as a model for how researchers can investigate the relationship between ancient texts (both sacred and profane) and the archaeological record. Influential archaeologists and biblical scholars examine a range of texts, materials and cultures: the Vedas and India; the Homeric legends and Greek Classical Archaeology; the Sagas and Icelandic archaeology; Islamic Archaeology; and the Umayyad, Abbasid, and Ayyubid periods. The groundbreaking essays offer a foundation for future research in biblical archaeology, ancient Jewish history and biblical studies.
