STRANDS: A YEAR OF DISCOVERIES ON THE BEACH, Sprackland, Jean
86 Sprackland, Jean STRANDS: A YEAR OF DISCOVERIES ON THE BEACH
Random House UK 2012 0224087452 / 9780224087452 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
This is the ultimate beachcomber's book. A series of meditations prompted b y walking on the wild estuarial beaches of Ainsdale Sands between Blackpool and Liverpool, Strands is about what is lost and buried then discovered, a bout all the things you find on a beach, dead or alive, about flotsam and j etsam, about mutability and transformation-about sea-change. Every so often the sands shift enough to reveal great mysteries: the Star of Hope, wrecke d on Mad Wharf in 1883 and usually just visible as a few wooden stumps, is suddenly raised one day, up from the depths-an entire wreck, black and barn acled, and on either side two more ruined ships, taking the air for a while before sinking back under the sand. And stranger still, perhaps, are the p rehistoric footprints of humans, animals, and birds on the beach: prints fr om the Late Mesolithic to mid-Neolithic period which are described as "ephe meral archaeology" because they are preserved in the Holocene sediment, rev ealed briefly, and then destroyed by the next tide. Strands describes a yea r's worth of walking on the ultimate beach: intertidal and constantly turni ng up revelations: mermaid's purses, lugworms, sea potatoes, messages in bo ttles, buried cars, beached whales, and a perfect cup from a Cunard liner. Jean Sprackland, a prize-winning poet and natural storyteller, is the perfe ct guide to these shifting sands-this place of transformation.

87 Tansey, Geoff THE MEAT BUSINESS: DEVOURING A HUNGRY PLANET
Palgrave Macmillan 1999 0312226861 / 9780312226862 Hardcover 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. This ground-breaking book by international experts on all aspects of food production, farming and animal welfare shows that there is an alternative to intensive farming of animals or genetic engineering in order to feed the world. The alternative, which is healthier for humans and kinder to animals, involves not devoting enormous resources to the production of meat, subjecting animals to often appalling treatment and creating both unfair food distribution and a poor diet. The contributions challenge the entire system of agriculture and the food market, asserting that animal welfare, human welfare, and the welfare of the planet go hand in hand.

THE LIVING WILD, Wolfe, Art
96 Wolfe, Art THE LIVING WILD
Wildlands Press 2000 0967591805 / 9780967591803 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
Art Wolfe has been photographing nature and wildlife to wide acclaim for 25 years, but his most recent book takes a new approach. Recognizing the cruc ial interdependence between animal life and the environment, Wolfe focuses on this relationship. As he says, "An animal . . . within its habitat is a vibrant representation of natural selection." The Living Wild offers breath taking evidence of this. Wolfe traveled three years to capture these rare, soaring images, from Mongolia to Australia to Iceland and beyond. The resul t is a rich pictorial tour of a magnificent array of animals, from "charism atic" beasts like the giant panda and the lowland gorilla, to a stunning di splay of birds, to such unsung contributors to the ecology as insects. Comp lementing the images are essays by renowned conservationists, such as Jane Goodall, who document the increasingly tenuous state of earth's biodiversit y and suggest ways to strengthen it.
