First published in 1949 and praised in The New York Times Book Review as "a trenchant book, full of vigor and bite," A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land.
Written with an unparalleled understanding of the ways of nature, the book includes a section on the monthly changes of the Wisconsin countryside; another part that gathers informal pieces written by Leopold over a forty-year period as he traveled through the woodlands of Wisconsin, Iowa,
Arizona, Sonora, Oregon, Manitoba, and elsewhere; and a final section in which Leopold addresses the philosophical issues involved in wildlife conservation. As the forerunner of such important books as Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek,...


Travels with My Chicken
Martin Gurdon
1592287786
Nov 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
There's something wonderfully British about Gurdon's wry little memoir about traveling around the United Kingdom with his chicken, promoting a book he'd just written called Hen and the Art of Chicken Maintenance—which is a good thing, as this book doesn't exactly have much on its mind. A freelance writer who cheerfully admits, "basically, I'll write about anything," Gurdon stretches out his small store of anecdotes to book length, but at least he doesn't overstay his welcome. There's plenty of humor in his accounts of appearing on morning TV shows, chicken in tow, and visiting various tiny bookstores where he and the chicken (named Tikka, naturally) are accosted by eager chicken farmers and bored teenagers. On more than one occasion, Gurdon veers off track, neglecting his chicken-discussion duties for...

Spotted in France
Gregory Edmont
1592281478
Sept 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Film and television writer Edmont went to Paris for graduate school and stayed, "out of school, out of work, and an outsider in a very closed society." But the arrival of a liver-spotted Dalmatian named Jarny- Prince du Bois-de-Tanagra, nicknamed JP, at his sixth-floor walkup in Montmartre soon changed his life. "The very first day I walked JP around the quartier, the world became more intimate with me, almost absurdly so.... JP became my golden key to practically every bar, cafe, and restaurant in Paris... and eventually my passport to all of France." When the "mad, absolutely mad" Dalmatian breeder Madame Clix phoned wanting JP to sire puppies in southern France, Edmont set out across the French countryside on his Vespa with the well-mannered, goggle-wearing dog riding on the scooter's foot rest. Escaping from...

Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
Frogs--those tailless, hopping amphibians with which most of us are familiar. But what makes a frog a frog? The Behlers, writing team and conservationists, have written an homage to the close to 5,000 species of frogs. They range in size from Africa's goliath frog (a seven-pound, foot-long giant) to the Brazilian flea frog (a mere one-half-inch long) and come in almost every color imaginable. Written to accompany a popular traveling museum exhibit, the book showcases the wonder and beauty of frogs. The first chapter examines what makes a frog and provides a nice primer to frog biology. Three chapters survey courtship and the metamorphosis of tadpole to frog, feeding and physiology, and camouflage and predator avoidance. The bulk of the book is a nice look at the frog families of the world, with descriptions of each family...

A Travel Guide to Heaven
Anthony DeStefano
0385509898
November 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Forget angels playing harps. In this fascinating, comforting book, DeStefano takes the reader on a tour of heaven, painting it as a dynamic place of unlimited joy, and using Scripture and dramatic imagination to fill in details about the afterlife. "God doesn't throw away the good things he creates," he writes, an idea which is the basis of many of his speculations about heaven. Heaven is a tangible place, believes DeStefano, and at least part of it will be a transformed new earth. People will have their own recognizable bodies, only perfected. DeStefano tackles tough questions about heaven, including the role of angels, the measurement of time, marriages and whether pets will be there ("Of course!"). Fears of boredom are dispelled with his depictions of possible activities ("How about a tour of the Andromeda...

From Publishers Weekly
Mayle's novel purports to be a confessional autobiography-of the author's dog, Boy. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal
Woof! Woof! After so many books by our two-legged "best friends" that try to decipher our "secret lives", it's so nice to have someone of our kind tell it like it really is. A dog's life can be very a good one indeed, especially if you are as lucky as the hero of our story to find an aimable human companion like Mayle, author of A Year in Provence (LJ 4/1/90), and Hotel Pastis (LJ 9/1/93). In this charming, if at times too cutsey, memoir, Boy, a shaggy but highly intelligent canine of mysterious lineage (we never use the politically incorrect "mutt"), recounts his humble beginnings with his 12 siblings, his abandonment by...

January 25, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This tale of the author’s adventures in Europe with his dog is more than just your standard-issue travelogue. Events, places and interactions that would seem clichéd or commonplace if only mere humans were involved become reinvented in the presence of Ella Guinevere Konik, a beautiful white Labrador/Greyhound mix. Konik’s love for his best friend is boundless. Thankfully, it’s also free of cutesy Hallmark sentiment. "She’s just a dog," he writes. "This I know. But she is my best friend, too…" Konik takes Ella to Europe as a reward for her years of devotion, but also, he admits, because he loves to be with her. And in Europe, dogs are welcome in public places in a way that American dogs can only dream of. Konik spends much of the book in near shock that he can take Ella to stores,...
