My husband & I share the account. Anything on history is his read. I'm more into fiction/zombie & apocalyptic reads.

    Dirt, soil, call it what you want - it's everywhere we go. It is the root of our existence, supporting our feet, our farms, our cities. This fascinating yet disquieting book finds, however, that we are running out of dirt, and it's no laughing matter. An engaging natural and cultural history of soil that sweeps from ancient civilizations to modern times, Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations explores the compelling idea that we are - and have long been - using up Earth's soil.

    Story

    Thought this was a really good book. I have a leaning towards ag and sustainable ag so I was very interested in the concepts brought forward. I have to admit while the exhaustion of the topsoil may not be the sole cause of some of the societies downfall, the thoughts brought forward make you think it played an important role.

    The Darkest Jungle tells the harrowing story of America's first ship canal exploration across a narrow piece of land in Central America called the Darien, a place that loomed large in the minds of the world's most courageous adventurers in the nineteenth century. With rivals from England and France days behind, the 27-member U.S. expedition landed on the Atlantic shore at Caledonia Bay in eastern Panama to begin their mad dash up the coast-hugging mountains of the Darien wilderness.

    This was an interesting book. I had never heard of Lt Strain and had read some other books about the canal so it gave me some additional insite. Pretty interesting to see how the area has been of interest for such a long time.
