Congratulations to Bob Harrington for his Canadian Hillman Prize nomination for his illuminating series on dams in rabble.ca.

 

Bob and his wife, Linda, are lifelong environmentalists. Their two most recent books—The Soul Solution and Testimony for Earth—are essential reading for us all.

 

The Soul Solution: The Need for a Theology of the Earth — a plea for humanity to reconnect with Nature and rebuild its relationship with the Earth.

 

Testimony for Earth: A Worldview to Save the Planet and Ourselves — an indispensable blueprint for our survival.

 

And also check this gifted and thoughtful writer's earlier books: Listening to the Earth: A Spiritual Journey with Nature and To Heal the Earth: The Case for an Earth Ethic.

SUMMERTIME!

 and the living is, well, rainy here on the west coast.

 

Apparently we didn’t get the memo about sunshine, heat and lazy summer days. So, when the weather doesn’t cooperate and outside activities are restricted, we have some great summer reads to keep you occupied. And take some books to the beach or the cottage when summer finally catches up and shows its face.

 

First of all, we have two great NEW titles to check out:

 

ALASKA’S PREDATORS: Their Ecology & Conservation is a celebration of 22 top predators—land, air and marine—and the essential role they play in complex ecosystems. Full color throughout.

 

Yale & the Strange Story of Jacko the Ape-boy, the latest addition to our cryptozoology titles, examines the capture of a sasquatch-like creature near Yale, BC in 1884 and his mysterious disappearance.


If history/biography is more your summer style, we have a great selection of fascinating stories, such as:

 

Mattie: Wyatt Earp’s Secret Second Wife

Shaking the Feather Boa, a country lawyer's life and experiences

and—an enduring favorite—A Doctor’s Notes, the story of local cardiologist Tom Godwin.

 

Check our catalog for other great titles too, and have a great summer!
