Kate’s Island by Kacey Daniels

LK01S Softcover
Looking for a nice, easy, clothes-free read to take on vacation? Kate’s Island is just the book. It is interesting enough to keep you coming back to finish, yet not demanding.
The story is set in Ireland and England, in present day. The characters are warm, and deal with the issue of telling others about being clothes-free. Some foreign slang is used, which is easily understood in context. For those wanting a clearer picture, there is a glossary in the rear of the book, defining the unfamiliar words. Kate’s Island is a delightful way to suspend reality for an hour or three, and sure to put a smile on your face as you read the ending.

I’ll Catch the Sun

LC05S Softcover - I’ll Catch the Sun
Memoirs and Musings of a Nudist, by Richard Langdon Cook
This is a book for anyone who loves the sun, has known the joys of "skinny dipping" or who wants to.
Richard Langdon Cook has written an engaging, "good for the soul" book that makes a compelling case for nudism. Travel with him on a global journey, sharing his experiences in the U.S.A., Cyprus, Thailand, the Seychelles, South Africa, France, Hawaii, the Caribbean; and on this cultural expedition enjoy his sly observations on England, the English, Japan, the Japanese, and learn from an expert what not to do in a public bathhouse in Tokyo. Woven between amusing anecdotes, generated by the lifestyle, are thoughts on Blessings, Beliefs, Music, Relationships, Culinary Delights and Cooking in the Nude. This is an entertaining read about "life" written by a well-traveled man who simply prefers to be "Outside" his clothes than "In them."

Woman and the Sea

Now Only  
PE05S Softcover - Woman and the Sea
The first-published love poems by Richard Tregaskis, famed war correspondent and author of Guadalcanal Diary, is beautifully illustrated with photos by nudist legend Ed Lange.
Woman and the Sea reveals the gentle side of this genius in his tender comparison of the magnificence of women and the magnitude of the sea. Tregaskis reveals an ethereal mystery in both which haunts and inspires all who approach. This first volume of his verse offers a vision of beauty, stark, yet subtle - fragile, but somehow imperishable. A dream of peace that served to relieve for him the nightmare of war. Today it serves as a reminder of the triumph of life over destruction. A beautiful, nostalgic book for the coffee table. 8 1/2 x 11, 52 pages, 10 color, 41 B&W photos.
