Book Excerpt :

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A delightful sampler plate of our national parks, written with charisma and erudition.”—Nick Offerman, author of Paddle Your Own Canoe From CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Conor Knighton, a behind-the-scenery look at his year traveling to each of America's National Parks, discovering the most beautiful places and most interesting people our country has to offer NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY OUTSIDE When Conor Knighton set off to explore America's "best idea," he worried the whole thing could end up being his worst idea. A broken engagement and a broken heart had left him longing for a change of scenery, but the plan he'd cooked up in response had gone a bit overboard in that department: Over the course of a single year, Knighton would visit every national park in the country, from Acadia to Zion. In Leave Only Footprints, Knighton shares informative and entertaining dispatches from what turned out to be the road trip of a lifetime. Whether he's waking up early for a naked scrub in a historic bathhouse in Arkansas or staying up late to stargaze along our loneliest highway in Nevada, Knighton weaves together the type of stories you're not likely to find in any guidebook. Through his unique lens, America the Beautiful becomes America the Captivating, the Hilarious, and the Inspiring. Along the way, he identifies the threads that tie these wildly different places together—and that tie us to nature—and reveals how his trip ended up changing his views on everything from God and love to politics and technology. Filled with fascinating tidbits about our parks' past and reflections on their fragile future, this book is both a celebration of and a passionate case for the natural wonders that all Americans share.

The book begins with his life-changing encounters with racism while interned in a Canadian concentration camp during World War II and continues through his troubled teenage years and later successes as a scientist and host of PBS's "The Nature of Things." With characteristic candor and passion, he describes his growing consciousness of the natural world and humankind' s precarious place in it; his travels throughout the world and his meetings with international leaders, from Nelson Mandela to the Dalai Lama; and the abiding role of nature and family in his life. "David Suzuki" is an intimate and inspiring look at one of the most uncompromising people on the planet.

Book Short Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “With winning candor, Jedidiah Jenkins takes us with him as he bicycles across two continents and delves deeply into his own beautiful heart.”—Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild and Tiny Beautiful Things On the eve of turning thirty, terrified of being funneled into a life he didn’t choose, Jedidiah Jenkins quit his dream job and spent sixteen months cycling from Oregon to Patagonia. He chronicled the trip on Instagram, where his photos and reflections drew hundreds of thousands of followers, all gathered around the question: What makes a life worth living? In this unflinchingly honest memoir, Jed narrates his adventure—the people and places he encountered on his way to the bottom of the world—as well as the internal journey that started it all. As he traverses cities, mountains, and inner boundaries, Jenkins grapples with the question of what it means to be an adult, his struggle to reconcile his sexual identity with his conservative Christian upbringing, and his belief in travel as a way to wake us up to life back home. A soul-stirring read for the wanderer in each of us, To Shake the Sleeping Self is an unforgettable reflection on adventure, identity, and a life lived without regret. Praise for To Shake the Sleeping Self “[Jenkins is] a guy deeply connected to his personal truth and just so refreshingly present.”—Rich Roll, author of Finding Ultra “This is much more than a book about a bike ride. This is a deep soul deepening us. Jedidiah Jenkins is a mystic disguised as a millennial.”—Tom Shadyac, author of Life’s Operating Manual “Thought-provoking and inspirational . . . This uplifting memoir and travelogue will remind readers of the power of movement for the body and the soul.”—Publishers Weekly

Book Short Summary:

First published as The Years That Matter Most From best-selling author Paul Tough, an indelible and explosive book on the glaring injustices of higher education, including unfair admissions tests, entrenched racial barriers, and crushing student debt. Now updated and expanded for the pandemic era. When higher education works the way it’s supposed to, there is no better tool for social mobility—for lifting young people out of challenging circumstances and into the middle class and beyond. In reality, though, American colleges and universities have become the ultimate tool of social immobility—a system that secures a comfortable future for the children of the wealthy while throwing roadblocks in the way of students from struggling families. Combining vivid and powerful personal stories with deep, authoritative reporting, Paul Tough explains how we got into this mess and explores the innovative reforms that might get us out. Tough examines the systemic racism that pervades American higher education, shows exactly how the SATs give an unfair advantage to wealthy students, and guides readers from Ivy League seminar rooms to the welding shop at a rural community college. At every stop, he introduces us to young Americans yearning for a better life—and praying that a college education might help them get there. With a new preface and afterword by the author exposing how the coronavirus pandemic has shaken the higher education system anew.​

Carbon Footprints as Cultural-Ecological Metaphors

  • Pdf File: carbon-footprints-as-cultural-ecological-metaphors.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Through an examination of carbon footprint metaphors, this books demonstrates the ways in which climate change and other ecological issues are culturally and materially constituted through metaphor. The carbon footprint metaphor has achieved a ubiquitous presence in Anglo-North American public contexts since the turn of the millennium, yet this metaphor remains under-examined as a crucial mediator of political responses to the urgent crisis of climate change. Existing books and articles on the carbon footprint typically treat this metaphor as a quantifying metric, with little attention to the shifting mediations and practices of the carbon footprint as a metaphor. This gap echoes a wider gap in understanding metaphors as key figures in mediating more-than-human relations at a time when such relations profoundly matter. As a timely intervention, this book addresses this gap by using insights from environmental humanities and political ecology to discuss carbon footprint metaphors in popular and public texts. This book will be of great interest to researchers and students of environmental humanities, political ecology, environmental communication, and metaphor studies.

  • Pdf File: footprints-in-the-jungle.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Tropical forests have seen a tremendous growth in logging, mining, and oil and gas development over the past decades. These industries and their infrastructure, including roads and power lines, have a tremendous impact on the environment and often conflict with the growing concern for conservation, particularly the conservation of tropical biodiversity. However, development in the tropics is extremely important economically, both for developing and industrialized nations, and Footprints in the Jungle is an invaluable reference in this important and highly politicized debate. This volume looks at new approaches that lessen the impact of development. It collects numerous case studies by project managers, advocates, and researchers from major international companies, development agencies, universities, and non-governmental organizations. It also examines the environmental and social impact of resource development, proposes a rigorous "best practices" approach, and analyzes a number of challenging technical, environmental, social, and legal issues.

Book Short Summary:

A profound meditation on climate change and the Anthropocene and an urgent search for the fossils—industrial, chemical, geological—that humans are leaving behind What will the world look like in ten thousand years—or ten million? What kinds of stories will be told about us? In Footprints: In Search of Future Fossils, the award-winning author David Farrier explores the traces we will leave for the very distant future. Modern civilization has created objects and landscapes with the potential to endure through deep time, whether it is plastic polluting the oceans and nuclear waste sealed within the earth or the 30 million miles of roads spanning the planet. Our carbon could linger in the atmosphere for 100,000 years, and the remains of our cities will still exist millions of years from now as a layer in the rock. These future fossils have the potential to reveal much about how we lived in the twenty-first century. Crossing the boundaries of literature, art, and science, Footprints invites us to think about how we will be remembered in the myths and stories of our distant descendants. Traveling from the Baltic Sea to the Great Barrier Reef, and from an ice-core laboratory in Tasmania to Shanghai, one of the world’s biggest cities, Farrier describes a world that is changing rapidly, with consequences beyond the scope of human understanding. As much a message of hope as a warning, Footprints will not only alter how you think about the future; it will change how you see the world today.

Faking Nature explores the arguments surrounding the concept of ecological restoration. This is a crucial process in the modern world and is central to companies' environmental policy; whether areas restored after ecological destruction are less valuable than before the damage took place. Elliot discusses the pros and cons of the argument and examines the role of humans in the natural world. This volume is a timely and provocative analysis of the simultaneous destruction and restoration of the natural world and the ethics related to those processes, in an era of accelerated environmental damage and repair.

Book Short Summary:

If we're not careful, our stuff can own us. Before we know it, we have high mortgages, high car payments and a lifestyle that we wished wasn't ours. What about those simpler times when technology didn't dictate our lives or when we weren't enslaved to making payment after payment? Author and pastor Tri Robinson has found that simple living for simplicity's sake isn't the answer. There must be a reason we all desire to render our lives down. As followers of Jesus, that innate desire within us to fall back into a simpler lifestyle is the yearning within us for our lives to count, to matter, to be part of something bigger than ourselves. When we render our lives down for the sake of the Gospel, we suddenly become more available to be used by God than ever before. Discover how you can put this biblical principle to work in your life and change the world around you!

Book Short Summary:

This collection is the first book to comprehensively analyse the relatively new and under-researched phenomenon of ‘ruin porn’. Featuring a diverse collection of chapters, the authors in this work examine the relevance of contemporary ruin and its relationship to photography, media, architecture, culture, history, economics and politics. This work investigates the often ambiguous relationship that society has with contemporary ruins around the world, challenging the notions of authenticity that are frequently associated with images of decay. With case studies that discuss various places and topics, including Detroit, Chernobyl, Pitcairn Island, post-apocalyptic media, online communities and urban explorers, among many other topics, this collection illustrates the nuances of ruin porn that are fundamental to an understanding of humanity’s place in the overarching narrative of history.

Book Short Summary:

Just Traveling celebrates overcoming distance and seeking difference as defining human traits. Following the scriptural witness of God as the Earthroamer, the book explores the liminal qualities of traveling through six movements: anticipating, leaving, surrendering, meeting, caring, and returning. To travel is to move at the speed of being present to one's experiences, bridging distance and difference through acts of care. Drawing on personal experience as well as the wisdom of theology, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, and cultural studies, Hamman reimagines travel in a welcoming and beautiful, yet also complex and troubled world. Whether leaving home serves our wanderlust and curiosity or has personal or spiritual purposes; whether we travel a few miles or cover vast distances, we travel best when we contribute to human flourishing. Care--the compassionate reaching out to someone or something--is the practice that allows one to travel differently. The spirituality of roads is filled with hopeful restorative potential, and life is best lived with the Earthroamer.

Book Short Summary:

A co-winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize offers a clear-eyed explanation of the planet’s imperiled ice. Much has been written about global warming, but the crucial relationship between people and ice has received little focus—until now. As one of the world’s leading experts on climate change, Henry Pollack provides an accessible, comprehensive survey of ice as a force of nature, and the potential consequences as we face the possibility of a world without ice. A World Without Ice traces the effect of mountain glaciers on supplies of drinking water and agricultural irrigation, as well as the current results of melting permafrost and shrinking Arctic sea ice—a situation that has degraded the habitat of numerous animals and sparked an international race for seabed oil and minerals. Catastrophic possibilities loom, including rising sea levels and subsequent flooding of lowlying regions worldwide, and the ultimate displacement of millions of coastal residents. A World Without Ice answers our most urgent questions about this pending crisis, laying out the necessary steps for managing the unavoidable and avoiding the unmanageable.

New ownership and a growing population brought a slew of changes that altered the dive once revered for its spontaneity, overt tackiness and penchant for the unrefined. The quintessential beach bar and ivory island strip loved by all has evolved, prompting locals and old regulars to consider the unthinkable: Seek good times, fun and frolic elsewhere. Pleasure Island is no longer the quaint retreat. The Mayor of Orange Beach and his developer cronies have unleashed a rash of dubious high rise condo construction projects that threaten to forever alter the gulf coast skyline and way of life. With the help of their powerful allies in the state legislature, new toll bridges and roads are being built to make it ever easier to get to the beach, ensuring that the risky developments will be handsomely rewarded. Despite the obvious warnings, few beach denizens realize their treasured existence hangs precariously in the balance. Marginalized by his majority stock holding partners and the hardened victim of several past surprise disasters, patriarch Joe Gideon is again in a quandary. Upset with the greed motivating the government’s misguided leadership, Gideon feels it may be time to sell out and retire in the nearby haven of West Pensacola, Florida. That is, until he hears of Johnny’s newest challenges—and realizes that everything he has worked so hard to create—the beloved Flora-Bama and the faithful community it supports, is certainly worth fighting for. Johnny and Joe reunite with the familiar cast of local characters to devise a plan to prevent during an unprecedented pandemic and an unforeseen category two hurricane the destructive domino effect from occurring. In order to save the island from certain ruin, they must win the hearts and minds of the locals as well as defeat in court and at the ballot box the energy thieves who will stop at nothing to turn a buck at the expense of their beloved way of life in the name of “progress.” Trouble at the Alabama Florida Line, the much-anticipated sequel to They Met at the Alabama-Florida Line, by Chris Warner, is another romantic, satirical tale seeking to draw semblance to Southern living, art, failed politics and pop culture.

Book Short Summary:

Dragon Blade It all started when a lowly computer programmer discovered he had been hypnotized with a false identity. He was somebody. Better than that, he was a hero in another world that direly needed him back. Jim Foley inadvertently dragged his company’s best secretary, Summer Quinn, along with him for the trip back to his magical home of Calladrin as their romance was just budding. Home, Jim learned of his true name and heroic persona, Jalen Bloom, and that he was needed to destroy an evil plaguing the land called Black Death. Once creating the magic talisman, Dragon Blade, Jim defeated Black Death, his army, destroyed the talisman in the process, and brought Summer home, making her Mrs. Foley. Dragon Flute After quitting his programming job, Jim Foley started Dragonsoft, the family-owned laptop business that ran successfully for fifteen years. All was right in the world until Gillius, a dwarven ghost from Jim’s old life, came to call him back home again. This time, Ralius, Jim’s spitting image fifteen-yearold son, and Riel, Ralius’s best elf friend, would come along as they hunted for the lost Dragon Flute. After a harrowing journey across a prehistoric sea with an intrepid crew aboard the giant royal ship dubbed the Tempest, the fabled object was finally obtained. Delbin, a powerful trickster demon who had threatened the subversion of Calladrin’s kingdom under King Joel, as well as all the multiverses, was finally destroyed by the Dragon Flute, wielded by a fifteen-year-old. The land was restored to normal then, and the Blooms came back to Los Angeles in order to resume their normal lives with Ralius becoming the captain of the soccer team and discovering his love of writing. Dragon Dance Things have largely settled in the magical land of Calladrin over the last fifteen years. The various kingdoms, factions, and tribes have retreated to their strongholds to live their separate lives, and the super continent is at peace. King Jalen and Queen Summer Bloom have ruled their people fairly through this entire prosperous period. Prince Ralius, having returned to Los Angeles to study English, has become a professor of literature at the lovely beach side Pepperdine University. All seems right with life while Ralius, going as Dr. Foley now, teaches his classes and lives his happy yet somewhat lonely life with Ramses, his cat. His days are full of sunshine and the never-ending work of a university professor until, one day during lecture, the past comes back to haunt Dr.F. Being in the middle of a lecture about the Red Death, Dr. F is surprised by an old foe returning to settles cores. Like any good teacher, Dr. F’s priority is to his students—TJ or Telemachus Jones, the athlete; Amy, the pacifist; Akim, the clown; and Bianca, a foreign exchange student and former model. Caught up in the struggle for supremacy over Calladrin, Dr. F has no choice but to take his university students with him back to Calladrin in order to keep them safe and to check on Mom and Dad. What follows is the final adventure in a series of mystical discoveries and epic battles as we greet familiar friends and make new ones, culminating in the third and final installment of the thrilling Dragon Talisman Trilogy.

Book Short Summary:

The Tao of Vegetable Gardening explores the practical methods as well as the deeper essence of gardening. In her latest book, groundbreaking garden writer Carol Deppe (The Resilient Gardener, Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties) focuses on some of the most popular home garden vegetables—tomatoes, green beans, peas, and leafy greens—and through them illustrates the key principles and practices that gardeners need to know to successfully plant and grow just about any food crop. Deppe’s work has long been inspired and informed by the philosophy and wisdom of Tao Te Ching, the 2,500-year-old work attributed to Chinese sage Lao Tzu and the most translated book in the world after the Bible. The Tao of Vegetable Gardening is organized into chapters that echo fundamental Taoist concepts: Balance, Flexibility, Honoring the Essential Nature (your own and that of your plants), Effortless Effort, Non-Doing, and even Non-Knowing. Yet the book also offers a wealth of specific and valuable garden advice on topics as diverse as: • The Eat-All Greens Garden, a labor- and space-efficient way to provide all the greens a family can eat, freeze, and dry—all on a tiny piece of land suitable for small-scale and urban gardeners. • The growing problem of late blight and the future of heirloom tomatoes—and what gardeners can do to avoid problems, and even create new resistant varieties. • Establishing a Do-It-Yourself Seed Bank, including information on preparing seeds for long-term storage and how to “dehybridize” hybrids. • Twenty-four good places to not plant a tree, and thirty-seven good reasons for not planting various vegetables. Designed for gardeners of all levels, from beginners to experienced growers, The Tao of Vegetable Gardening provides a unique frame of reference: a window to the world of nature, in the garden and in ourselves.
