The greatest "unsolved mystery" of the American Southwest is the fate of the Anasazi, the native peoples who in the eleventh century converged on Chaco Canyon (in today's southwestern New Mexico) and built what has been called the Las Vegas of its day, a flourishing cultural center that attracted pilgrims from far and wide, a vital crossroads of the prehistoric world. The Anasazis' accomplishments - in agriculture, in art, in commerce, in architecture, and in engineering - were astounding, rivaling those of the Mayans in distant Central America. By the thirteenth century, however, the Anasazi were gone from Chaco. Vanished. What was it that brought about the rapid collapse of their civilization? Was it drought? pestilence? war? forced migration? mass murder or suicide? For many years conflicting theories have abounded. Craig Childs draws on the latest scholarly research, as well as on a lifetime of adventure and exploration in the most forbidding landscapes of the American Southwest, to shed new light on this compelling mystery.

An artist transforms the burden of their solitude into art, and so Emily Isaacson does in poetry. Her accounts of nature, cultivation, childhood, and transcendence in House of Rain are lyrical and riveting, providing a break from realism. The naturalist and the philosopher converse back and forth using the natural world as inspiration, while their insights and experiences of humanity and his habitat are woven throughout in postmodern verse. Emily Isaacson's poetry actualizes silence throughout, the ability to quiet the soul in anticipation to receive from a higher source. When we are in need of someone to take us by the hand into the realm of understanding, this she does with mirror-like tranquility. Her word painting of the natural world and the house in which she lives vow a deep solitude found only where modern society has left no footprint.

The continuing devastation of the world’s tropical rain forest affects us all—spurring climate change, decimating biodiversity, and wrecking our environment’s resiliency. Millions of worried people around the world want to do whatever it takes to save the forest that is left. But halting rain forest destruction means understanding what is driving it. In Breakfast of Biodiversity, John Vandermeer and Ivette Perfecto insightfully describe the ways in which such disparate factors as the international banking system, modern agricultural techniques, rain forest ecology, and the struggles of the poor interact to bring down the forest. They weave an alternative vision in which democracy, sustainable agriculture, and land security for the poor are at the center of the movement to save the tropical environment.

This debut novel from the author of the powerful, universally acclaimed Foreign Gods, Inc. looks at a woman’s drowning and the ensuing investigation in an emerging African nation. In the country of Madia (based in part on Ndibe’s native Nigeria) a young prostitute runs into the sea and drowns. The last man who spoke to her, the “madman” Bukuru, is asked to account for her last moments. When his testimony implicates the Madian armed forces, Bukuru is arrested and charged with her death. At the first day of trial, Bukuru, acting as his own attorney, counters these charges with allegations of his own, speaking not only of government complicity in a series of violent assaults and killings, but telling the court that the president of Madia himself is guilty of rape and murder. The incident is hushed up, and Bukuru is sent back to prison, where he will likely meet his end. But a young journalist manages to visit him, and together they journey through decades of history that illuminate Bukuru’s life, and that of the entire nation. A brave and powerful work of fiction, Arrows of Rain is a brilliant dramatization of the complex factors behind the near-collapse of a nation from one of the most exciting novelists writing today.

Through the Wall of Rain and Fog, written when author Dan Moore was 16, explores familiar themes of high school friendship, despair, and hope, told in a searingly authentic voice. Moore insists we join the characters search for truth, and propels us along with intimate revelation. As events unfold, the reader walks, runs, and ultimately races headlong into the unknown witness to the characters ragged, wrenching ascent into adulthood. The characters and the painful, promising plot take the readers breath away. The authors raw talent - his ability to craft dialogue and to express the inexpressible - leaves the reader longing for more. Aimed at young adult readers, the book has broad appeal as teen alienation is a dangerous issue at present. Parents will be riveted by the insight Dan provides into the hearts and minds, the intensity and sensitivity, and the interpretation of experience of teenagers growing up today. Some have compared the book to Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs or The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. Dan Moore is now an 18-year-old living in the suburbs of San Francisco, on his way to college. He writes because he must, and still believes that Disco Cow, written in second grade, is his best work, though he is excited too about his next work, The Summer of Billy Stevens, due in early 2009. His lifelong habit of writing produces observations that develop into funny, frightening, irresistible narratives with vivid characters and alarming insights. His friends mean the world to him, but his most trusted companions are his morbidly obese dog and overweight cat. Early Comments from Readers and Reviewers: a debut novel focused on the power of friendship...In fact, the onlything Chris Walker seems to have in his favor is his friends: Dave, Nyle and Jamar. But author Moore, an 18-year-old recent high school graduate himself, quickly calls the boys bond into question Moore settles into his characters...captures readers, creating vivid portraits of teenage confusion, anger and chaos --Kirkus Discoveries The story has me hooked. I am eager to turn each pageHis characters are clearly drawn and his dialog is right on target, nothing stilted, very authentic. I really care about everyone in his story and that is a very good sign. --Mary Embree, Executive Director, California Literary Arts Society book caught my attention ..sounded a lot like what my son went throughI really got into it and found that I couldnt put it down. I knew I was reading something that allowed me insight into the crazy world of teenage boys these daysit is actually a great story. an awesome job of drawing the reader in, helping the reader get to know the characters. --Brenda Burke, Mother, Teen Aged Boys Availability: Via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, other chains, certain independent booksellers, and ThroughtheWallofRainandFog.com.
