Das gegenwärtige Stadtbild von New Harmony, Indiana, ist für einen entlegenen, nicht einmal 900 Einwohner zählenden Ort bemerkenswert. Besonders das von Richard Meier entworfene Besucherzentrum, die Roofless Church und das Harmonist Labyrinth stechen ins Auge. Die Erinnerung an die ersten Siedler, die Harmony Society und Robert Owens Gesellschaftsexperiment (1814-1827), ist allgegenwärtig. Geleitet von der Frage nach dem Erbe der zwei sogenannten "intentionalen Gemeinschaften" untersucht diese Lokalstudie auf einer vielseitigen Quellenbasis New Harmonys demographische, wirtschaftliche, politische und kulturelle Entwicklung. New Harmonys Erfolgsgeschichte als Kleinstadt kann nicht allein mit den bekannten städtischen Wachstumsfaktoren erklärt werden. New Harmony erhielt aufgrund der Anwesenheit zweier ideengeschichtlich in Europa verwurzelter, in den USA dann bewusst formierter Gemeinschaften einzigartige Entfaltungschancen, die dem Ort zu einem mittlerweile über 200-jährigen Bestehen verhalfen.

Hanna's Tow is the history of nineteenth-century Wabash, Indiana, where the author was raised and where his father was a minister for 30 years. In late autumn 1902 a macabre scene unfolded at the original burial ground of Wabash, which was called both Old Cemetery and Hanna's Cemetery. The task at hand was the disinterment of four bodies. The newest of the four graves held whatever might be left of the corpse of Colonel Hugh Hanna - the founding father and civic icon of the prosperous and picturesque community. It might be argued that Hanna's disinterment was the high-water mark of an outpouring of visible progress, cultural energy, and palpable optimism that the town had experienced during the proceeding 67 years. Hanna's Town talks about the high and low points of this fasinating community.

This authoritative guide showcases the unmatched beauty and diversity of the native orchids of the southern Appalachian mountains. Based on Stanley Bentley's many years of nature study, it covers the 52 species--including one discovered by Bentley and named after him--found in a region encompassing western Virginia and North Carolina and eastern West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee. The entry for each orchid provides the plant's scientific and common names, a description of the flower (including color, shape, and size), and information on the time of flowering, range, and typical habitat, all in the context of the southern mountains. A range map accompanies each description, and Bentley's own superb photographs are an additional aid to identification. Using straightforward language yet incorporating the most up-to-date scientific information and nomenclature, the book will be welcomed by amateur naturalists or professional botanists looking for species in the field and by those who simply enjoy photographs of beautiful wildflowers.

Ein Mädchen lernt zu leben - von einem Jungen, der sterben will Ist heute ein guter Tag zum Sterben?, fragt sich Finch, sechs Stockwerke über dem Abgrund auf einem Glockenturm, als er plötzlich bemerkt, dass er nicht allein ist. Neben ihm steht Violet, die offenbar über dasselbe nachdenkt wie er. Von da an beginnt für die beiden eine Reise, auf der sie wunderschöne wie traurige Dinge erleben und großartige sowie kleine Augenblicke – das Leben eben. So passiert es auch, dass Finch bei Violet er selbst sein kann – ein verwegener, witziger und lebenslustiger Typ, nicht der Freak, für den alle ihn halten. Und es ist Finch, der Violet dazu bringt, jeden einzelnen Moment zu genießen. Aber während Violet anfängt, das Leben wieder für sich zu entdecken, beginnt Finchs Welt allmählich zu schwinden...

In his engaging firsthand account, Moore writes of the people behind the excavation of the site and how their efforts helped save valuable artifacts for ongoing study. Numerous photographs capture the excitement of the site discovery, and close images of the individual bones highlight the excellent condition of fossils at Gray. Moore also describes the contours of what the ancient landscape may have looked like and details the governmental action that ultimately preserved this Tennessee treasure."--Jacket.
