    In this classic of literary nonfiction, Annie Dillard takes us through a year of on-foot explorations through her own landscape, bringing anecdotes, curiosities, and insights about all she observes and experiences. In the summer, she stalks muskrats in the creek and thinks about wave mechanics; in the fall, she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot, unties a snakeskin, witnesses a flood, and plays "King of the Meadow" with a field of grasshoppers.

    Why are more American adolescent girls prey to depression, eating disorders, addictions, and suicide attempts than ever before? According to Dr. Mary Pipher, a clinical psychologist who has treated girls for more than twenty years, we live in a look-obsessed, media-saturated, "girl-poisoning" culture. Despite the advances of feminism, escalating levels of sexism and violence - from undervalued intelligence to sexual harassment in elementary school - cause girls to stifle their creative spirit and natural impulses, which, ultimately, destroys their self-esteem.

Tracked down and captured, Spaggiari escaped from the French police by jumping out a window and onto the back of a motorcycle.

    Darwin's theory of evolution is accepted by most educated Americans as simple fact. This easy acceptance, however, hides from us the many ways in which evolution - as an idea - shapes our thinking about a great many things. What if this idea is wrong? What if "evolution" is just a word that covers up scientific ignorance of how the wonders of the living world could have been created? Berkeley law professor Phillip Johnson looks at the evidence for Darwinistic evolution the way a lawyer would - with a cold dispassionate eye for logic and proof.

    Two Michigan towns, St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, separated by the St. Joseph River, are geographically close, yet worlds apart: St. Joseph is a 95% white, prosperous lakeshore community, while Benton Harbor is impoverished and 92% black. When the body of a black teenaged boy from Benton Harbor is found in the river, unhealed wounds and suspicions between the 2 towns' populations surface as well. The investigation into Eric McGinnis' death inevitably becomes a screen onto which each community projects its resentments and fears.
