Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. Introduction by novelist Pam Durban. On the afternoon of February 24th, 1965, Amylu Danzer, a twenty-year-old art student who'd been visiting Jones Beach on Long Island, went missing. A month later, her body was swept ashore some sixteen miles away, at Far Rockaway. In this tender, courageous, and compellingly written memoir, the writer and photographer John Rosenthal looks back on his youthful friendship with Amylu, and, drawing on multiple sources--amongst them his own journals, the testimony of her family and some of the people with whom she studied, newspaper reports of her death, and the eyewitness account of one of the men who found her body--he seeks to answer some of the questions which have haunted him ever since he first learned of her death--questions which were either too easily dismissed or else were too easily answered at the time. SEARCHING FOR AMYLU DANZER is a powerful and unillusioned book, and in writing it Rosenthal has ensured that however short her life was, Amylu Danzer will not be counted as one of those "which have no memorial...and are become as though they have never been born." "Relying on his memory of a dear friend, John Rosenthal has composed a once-in-a-lifetime reading experience. SEARCHING FOR AMYLU DANZER is funny, direct, and tantalizingly oblique; Rosenthal's dramatic study of his relationship with Amylu--and with his memory of her--is smooth, clear, and suspenseful. He masterfully shuffles time and event while weaving together photographic art, memoir, and novelistic technique. This book will knock you down in the way great books are supposed to knock you down. Skip it only if you've never lost someone you loved."--Clyde Edgerton "As in all great life writing, the central drama in John Rosenthal's unforgettable memoir, SEARCHING FOR AMYLU DANZER, is not between self and other, but within the narrator, between a recollecting self whose horizon of vision is wide, and a recollected self whose horizon of vision is narrow. While the story of his friend's mental instability and eventual death infuse the book with all the suspense of a page turner, the real subject of this amazing story is not Amylu but Rosenthal himself, how it is he became the writer who could tell this story with such compassionate understanding, not just for Amylu, but for himself, for the young person that he was, of that time and that place."--Alan Shapiro "Whatever it is--memoir, novel, extended prose poem, elegy--it's a beautiful book. Not a false note anywhere. Things are as they are, sometimes beautifully, sometimes sadly, sometimes simply factually. The point and pointlessness of life conjoined, as in the chance, contingent whorls of the driftwood surfaces. It left me exhilarated and depleted."--Jay Tolson "This short book feels like something perfect. Its impossible ambition is to understand the vagaries of time and memory and loss, and in that enterprise captures something even more important, the essence of friendship: our desire to understand each other. I loved it."--Daniel Wallace

"The authors write authoritatively and crisply . . . . How to use maps in teaching is spelled out carefully, but the authors also manage to sketch in the background of American mapping so the book is both a manual and a history. Commentaries are sprinkled with stimulating new ideas, for instance on how to use bird's-eye views and country atlases in the classroom, and there are didactic discussions on maps showing the walking city and the impact of the street car. "An extraordinarily wide range of maps is depicted, which makes for good browsing, pondering and close study. . . . This is a very good, highly attractive, and worthwhile book; it will have great impact on the use of old (and new!) maps in teaching. As well, this is a tantalizing survey of mapping the United States and will whet the appetites of students and encourage them to learn more about maps and their origins."—John Warketin, Cartographica

An illustrated chapter on the renowned Michigan map expert Louis Karpinski opens this volume, following a comparative introduction by the noted cartographic historian David Buisseret. Twelve chapters tell particular stories. Often these narratives extend well beyond the limits of today's state of Michigan. Ameican Indian mapmakers sought to give directions and convey cosmological meanings and political relationships; only gradually did they adopt the geometric framing and uniformity of European maps, which reflected a different set of cultural attitudes. Would-be colonial governors mapped to promote their dreams. Boundary commissioners surveyed and mapped to settle contested claims and lay the foundations for peace along the U.S.-Canadian border. On the Canadian side, surveyors drew maps to build up the new British colony against American influences and encroachments. Mapmakers were also ambitious entrepreneurs, peddling illustrated county atlases to proud farm owners, bird's-eye views to show off towns, and plat and insurance maps to aid property development. In describing how people produced and used maps, contributors tell a larger story of one region's peoples and cultures--and of a nation's zeal for exploration.
