Paperback

Book Description
Chartered on April 24, 1834, as a route from Brooklyn to Boston, the Long Island Rail Road commenced in 1836 with service between Brooklyn and Jamaica, New York. The railroad has linked Long Island and New York City through several periods of increasing immigration and population beginning in the 1880s. Farmers and fishermen have depended on the railroad for their livelihood, and every summer thousands of tourists flock to Long Island beaches on the Long Island Rail Road.

These one-of-a-kind photographs depict structures no longer in...

From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3-- As he did in his other picture-book biographies, Adler concentrates here on the childhood of his subject. There is enough information given for readers to understand Keller's frustration and to see the enormous help that Sullivan gave her. Details of the mean things she did to her mother and friends before meeting Sullivan clarify this even further. The way in which Keller learned that objects had names is included; the book then shifts to her college years and touches on highlights of her life including visiting soldiers, writing, and lecturing. Although coverage is too brief for any kind of report, it is interesting enough to awaken children's interest in learning more about Keller. The Wallners' line and watercolor cartoons match the simple text and are appropriate to the book's tone....

Book Description
Planned and chartered on April 24, 1834, the Long Island Rail Road commenced operations in 1836 to provide a route to Boston. Stretching 110 miles east of New York City, the Long Island Rail Road has been the backbone of population growth and suburban development for over a

hundred years. Electrification was begun on the Long Island Rail Road in 1905. Whether it was commuter, freight, or special trains, third-rail operations played a major role in the Long Island Rail Road’s development as well as the people, places, and industries it served. This book offers

an insider’s view of the Morris Park shops and photographs of the varied passenger operations found on the Long Island Rail Road.

The Philosophy of Ecology
David R. Keller
0820322199
Dec 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
We look to ecologists for many things, from accurate descriptions of natural systems to guidance on our proper relationships to them. Yet ecologists often disagree on matters that affect their own field's basic philosophical underpinnings. This international gathering of twenty-three seminal readings both illustrates the range of philosophical approaches available to ecologists and provides a basis for understanding the thinking on which many of today's environmental ideas are founded. Opening with a general introduction to the challenges of defining scientific ecology, tracing its genealogy, and distinguishing the science from various forms of "ecological-like" thinking, the volume is organized into thematic sections. Issues covered include the ontology of ecological entities and processes; selected concepts of...

Book Description
Below the Escondido Rim details the evolution of a legendary Texas cattle ranch and the historic background in which it evolved. It is a story about dreams as big as the land itself, of hardship and success and failure, of long days in the saddle beneath a relentless sun, of booms and busts, boondoggles and burnouts, overextension and recoil. It is a story about trying to overcome adversity in an incredibly vast but difficult land.

From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3-Adler has adapted the information in A Picture Book of Helen Keller (Holiday, 1990) into this offering for beginning readers. Youngsters will gain a sense of Keller's frustration as a child, her determination as a student, and her hard work for human rights as an adult. Wallner's softly colored line-and-watercolor illustrations fill in some of the details of Keller's life, especially during her childhood. The clear, large font and attractive, well-placed pictures help newly independent readers make their way through the chapters. A listing of important dates and a bibliography round out the presentation. However, Picture Book correctly lists 1924 as the date Keller began her work with the American Foundation for the Blind; this title lists the date as 1900. Nonetheless, it is an attractive and...
