George Washington Sears, also known as "Nessmuk," was a Romantic. He sought to witness the glory and the beauty of nature; to free himself from the vagaries of industrialized civilization. He expressed this philosophy through his pursuit of the minimalist ideal and its use in the outdoors. WOODCRAFT AND CAMPING is Nessmuk's practical and philosophical guide to camping, traveling, and survival in the woods. The book discusses the foundational skills needed to live in the woods: the art of camping, fishing, fire-making, cooking, shelter, tools, and canoeing. But Nessmuk does not just recite the skills needed, he also tells us about his experiences and conversations during his travels. He provides us with campfire poetry and lore. And he does all of this in a writing style that is eloquent, engrossing, and intrinsically positive.
<b>The first book to cover grounding from the circuit to system and across the entire spectrum of applications</b> <p> <i>Grounds for Grounding</i> provides a complete and thorough approach to the subject of designing electrical and electronic circuits and systems, blending theory and practice to demonstrate how a few basic rules can be applied across a broad range of applications. <p> The authors begin with the basic concepts of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) that are essential for understanding grounding theory and its applications, such as "ground loop," which is one of the most misunderstood concepts in EMC. Next, they provide an introduction to grounding, including safety grounding, grounding for control of electromagnetic interference, and grounding-related case studies. Subsequent chapter coverage includes: <ul> <li> <p> Fundamentals of grounding design <li> <p> Bonding principles <li> <p> Grounding for power distribution and lightning protection systems <li> <p> Grounding in wiring circuits and cable shields <li> <p> Grounding of EMI terminal protection devices <li> <p> Grounding on printed circuit boards <li> <p> Integrated facility and platform grounding system </ul> <p> Practical case studies are integrated throughout the book to aid in readers' comprehension and each chapter concludes with a useful bibliography. <i>Grounds for Grounding</i> is an indispensable resource for electrical and electronic engineers who work with the design of circuits, systems, and facilities.
