Village Pumps
The village pump was once the focal point of rural life, providing the only water supply to communities and offering a place in town squares and village greens for people to come together. Sadly, with the introduction of piped mains, the village pump rapidly fell out of favour, often neglected or removed from where they once proudly stood. Richard Williams brings deserved attention to the history of the village pump, exploring the many different designs that existed and shedding light on the communities that relied upon them. As recent movements from parish councils and local history societies push to restore and renovate their village pumps, this book is a timely study of these rural relics, and includes practical advice on where to obtain expert help, replacement parts, and possible local authority financial assistance.

Old Stationary Engines
The versatile engine was used a prime mover to drive all kinds of machinery, working either from a fixed stationary position or as a portable a trolley or truck was used to transport it to a location where an appliance needed power. They were available in all sizes, from diminutive models used for home-workshop tasks, to large-scale engines for driving agricultural or industrial machinery. David W. Edgington explores the many types and styles of old engine, describing their development from early steam and gas driven examples through to later versions fuelled by petrol, paraffin and diesel. Colour photographs and archive illustrations depict engines produced by well-known manufacturers such as the Associated Manufacturer's Company, Lister, Petter, and Wolseley, and those of lesser-known markers such as Morton and Naylor. This is the ideal introduction to these fascinating machines.

October Sky
Three years in the life of Homer 'Sonny' Hickam, from the moment he sees the Sputnik satellite overhead in West Virginia to his successful launch of a prizewinning rocket. A nostalgic and lyrical memoir of growing up in rural West Virginia in the 1950s and one boy's dream to rival the Russians in the race for space. In 1957 in Coalwood, West Virginia, a town dominated by the black steel towers of the mine and the coal waggons, for a fourteen year old boy there are two routes in life: a football scholarship to college or a life underground. Sonny Hickam, the mine superintendent's younger son, is too small for the football team. But his destiny is altered when the town turns out to watch the Soviet Sputnik satellite pass overhead. From that moment, Homer Hickam and his friends determine that they will form the Big Creek Missle Agency and build an American rocket. This is the true story of the boys' adventures from the moment their first rocket, Auk 1, destroys the garden fence and the lovingly tended roses. Supported only by a tolerant mother and a father who turns a literally blind eye, Sonny gradually entrances the entire town to support his enterprise, which eventually is entered for the National Science Fair. He is the first boy from Coalwood ever to enter and among the judges is Werner von Braun. October Sky is the story of a a group of young enthusiasts whose ambition revives an industrial town in decline. They are emblems of a better future, of a life outside the vicious confines of the pit, of a world beyond the imagination. This is a sensitive, funny, brilliant tale of boys besotted by a dream: they want to build a rocket.

Beam Engines
People interested in the steam engine are well catered for by an enormous variety of books, but these deal almost entirely with transport. The stationary steam engine has been much neglected in modern literature and there is very little available to tell us about the largest and most varied aspects of the use of steam power: how for instance it was put to pumping out mines in the reign of Queen Anne and to providing domestic water supplies in London not long after. All these installations were designed as beam engines; in other words, they had a rocking beam interposed between the piston and the work it had to do and it is this type of engine which this book seeks to introduce. It was made for two centuries and its uses were legion once the industrial revolution was under way. Mills, factories of all kinds, canals, railways and furnaces employed it; all the early steamships used it for motive power and in its last glorious phase gigantic compound engines in cathedral-like structures showing the height of civic pride pumped the water or the sewage for almost every great city.
