Jamie roams her native Scottish "byways and hills" and sails north to encounter whalebones and icebergs. Interweaving personal history with her scrutiny of landscape, Jamie dissects whatever her gaze falls upon―from vistas of cells beneath a hospital microscope, to orcas rounding a headland, to the aurora borealis lighting up the frozen sea.

THE OUTLAW SEA: A WORLD OF FREEDOM, CHAOS, AND CRIME, Langewiesche, William
51 Langewiesche, William THE OUTLAW SEA: A WORLD OF FREEDOM, CHAOS, AND CRIME
North Point Press 2005 0865477221 / 9780865477223 Paperback Very Good 
The open ocean--that vast expanse of international waters--spreads across t hree-fourths of the globe. It is a place of storms and danger, both natural and manmade. And at a time when every last patch of land is claimed by one government or another, it is a place that remains radically free. With typically understated lyricism, William Langewiesche explores this oce an world and the enterprises--licit and illicit--that flourish in the priva cy afforded by its horizons. But its efficiencies are accompanied by global problems--shipwrecks and pollution, the hard lives and deaths of the crews of the gargantuan ships, and the growth of two pathogens: a modern and sop histicated strain of piracy and its close cousin, the maritime form of the new stateless terrorism. This is the outlaw sea that Langewiesche brings startlingly into view. The ocean is our world, he reminds us, and it is wild.

BARKING AT PROZAC: MY DIARY, McNichol, Tom
58 McNichol, Tom BARKING AT PROZAC: MY DIARY
Three Rivers Press 1996 0517886650 / 9780517886656 Paperback Very Good 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: It was the year that changed my life. One day, there I was, a happy pup wit h a handsome house out in the backyard, a pack of trusted friends, and more toys than I could possibly put in my mouth at the same time. Then I began to lose interest in eating -- even expensive moist food. The m agic vanished from simple activities that once brought me joy, like knockin g over the kitchen trash can. My tail stopped wagging for the cute cocker s paniel next door. I was in the grip of a powerful depression. That's when my vet suggested Prozac -- and now, poring over my diary from t hat turbulent year, it's hard to believe everything that happened as I stru ggled to get in touch with my Inner Puppy. But in the end, a little pill wr apped in bologna taught me truths about happiness we can all share: how to pick yourself up when you feel down in the snout; how to love the sound of your own bark. What it truly means to a good dog. About the Author About The Author: A writer and thinker born and raised in rural Pennsylvania, Buck lives a small wooden house with his collection of chew toys and a personalized water dish.

THE PINE ISLAND PARADOX (THE WORLD AS HOME), Moore, Kathleen Dean
59 Moore, Kathleen Dean THE PINE ISLAND PARADOX (THE WORLD AS HOME)
Milkweed Editions 2004 1571312765 / 9781571312761 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. In this warm, stimulating brew of personal stories, acclaimed author Kathle en Dean Moore uses the metaphor of an island to challenge the cynicism inhe rent in the Western worldview. A gifted storyteller with a sly sense of hum or, Moore explores three separations brought to us by Enlightenment philoso phers: the separation of human from nature, of things near and far away, an d of the sacred from the mundane. Challenging each, such as Descartes' idea that humans have a discrete consciousness and can alter creation while rem aining unaltered themselves, she reveals why such divisions don't tally wit h the values expressed daily in the way people live. Moore disguises her ph ilosophical explorations in stories: about vacationing on a tiny island in Alaska, visiting her father in the hospital, watching grouse perform their mating dance in the desert. Throughout, she shows that, when properly obser ved, the world is full of opportunities to find hidden connections. Editorial Reviews
