Between Urban and Wild: Reflections from Colorado
In her calm, carefully reasoned perspective on place, Andrea Jones focuses on the familiar details of country life balanced by the larger responsibilities that come with living outside an urban boundary. Neither an environmental manifesto nor a prodevelopment defense, Between Urban and Wild operates partly on a practical level, partly on a naturalist's level. Jones reflects on life in two homes in the Colorado Rockies, first in Fourmile Canyon in the foothills west of Boulder, then near Cap Rock Ridge in central Colorado. Whether negotiating territory with a mountain lion, balancing her observations of the predatory nature of pygmy owls against her desire to protect a nest of nuthatches, working to reduce her property's vulnerability to wildfire while staying alert to its inherent risks during fire season, or decoding the distinct personalities of her horses, she advances the tradition of nature writing by acknowledging the effects of sprawl on a beloved landscape.

Although not intended as a manual for landowners, Between Urban and Wild nonetheless offers useful and engaging perspectives on the realities of settling and living in a partially wild environment. Throughout her ongoing journey of being home, Jones's close observations of the land and its native inhabitants are paired with the suggestion that even small landholders can act to protect the health of their properties. Her brief meditations capture and honor the subtleties of the natural world while illuminating the importance of working to safeguard it.

Probing the contradictions of a lifestyle that burdens the health of the land that she loves, Jones's writing is permeated by her gentle, earnest conviction that living at the urban-wild interface requires us to set aside self-interest, consider compromise, and adjust our expectations and habits-to accommodate our surroundings rather than force them to accommodate us.

Comments From Other Readers

"I taught myself to crochet when I was 7 and that's been my niche ever since. I was looking for a challenge and a co-worker suggested that knitting might be a great cross over. I found it very easy to transition over to. The patterns in this book were fantastic! I loved the little ducky! I think the pictures were a huge help as well. I might just have to put my hook away for a little while!" – Eve (Florida, US)

"I'm a guy. Knitting to me has been for little old ladies. I recently had an accident though and experienced some head trauma. As a result, I've had difficulty with some of my motor functions. My physical therapist actually suggested knitting. I can't knock it until I try to so I went with my sister who knits and picked out some stuff. My first project was a beanie. I think the thing that worked for me was that if I messed up I could just pull it out and start over. After a few weeks of knitting for an hour or more a day, my therapist noted positive changes. This book was a big part of that. I found it easy to follow, even for someone that never touched a knitting needle before." – Bryan (Colorado, US)

Mesoamerica's Classic Heritage: From Teotihuacan to the Aztecs By David Carrasco, Lindsay Jones, Scott Sessions

Mesoamerica’s Classic Heritage: From Teotihuacan to the Aztecs
For more than a millennium the great Mesoamerican city of Teotihuacan (c. 150 B.C.E.-750 C.E.) has been imagined and reimagined by a host of subsequent cultures, including our own. Mesoamerica's Classic Heritage engages the subject of the unity and diversity of pre-Hispanic Mesoamerica by focusing on the classic heritage of this ancient city. This new volume is the product of several years of research by members of Princeton University's Moses Mesoamerican Archive and Research Project and Mexico's Proyecto Teotihuacan. Offering a variety of disciplinary perspectives-including the history of religions, anthropology, archaeology, and art history-and a wealth of new data, Mesoamerica's Classic Heritage examines Teotihuacan's rippling influence across Mesoamerican time and space, including important patterns of continuity and change, and its relationships, both historical and symbolic, with Tenochtitlan, Cholula, and various Maya communities.

The Emerald Mile: The Epic Story of the Fastest Ride in History Through the Heart of the Grand Canyon (Audiobook) By Kevin Fedarko, read by Paul Michael Garcia
Unabridged edition 2014 | 17 hours and 23 mins | ISBN: 1481509101 | MP3 105 kbps (vbr) | 830 MB

The Emerald Mile: The Epic Story of the Fastest Ride in History Through the Heart of the Grand Canyon (Audiobook)
From one of Outside magazine’s “Literary All-Stars” comes the thrilling true tale of the fastest boat ride ever, down the entire length of the Colorado River and through the Grand Canyon, during the legendary flood of 1983.

In the spring of 1983, massive flooding along the length of the Colorado River confronted a team of engineers at the Glen Canyon Dam with an unprecedented emergency that may have resulted in the most catastrophic dam failure in history. In the midst of this crisis, the decision to launch a small wooden dory named “The Emerald Mile” at the head of the Grand Canyon, just fifteen miles downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam, seemed not just odd, but downright suicidal.

The Emerald Mile, at one time slated to be destroyed, was rescued and brought back to life by Kenton Grua, the man at the oars, who intended to use this flood as a kind of hydraulic sling-shot. The goal was to nail the all-time record for the fastest boat ever propelled—by oar, by motor, or by the grace of God himself—down the entire length of the Colorado River from Lee’s Ferry to Lake Mead. Did he survive? Just barely. Now, this remarkable, epic feat unfolds here, in The Emerald Mile.

The Colorado Kid by Stephen King

The Colorado Kid by Stephen King
Dorchester | 2005 | ISBN: 0843955848 | 184 pages | EPUB | 3 MB
On an island off the coast of Maine, a man is found dead. There's no identification on the body. Only the dogged work of a pair of local newspapermen and a graduate student in forensics turns up any clues.
But that's just the beginning of the mystery. Because the more they learn about the man and the baffling circumstances of his death, the less they understand. Was it an impossible crime? Or something stranger still…?
No one but Stephen King could tell this story about the darkness at the heart of the unknown and our compulsion to investigate the unexplained. With echoes of Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon and the work of Graham Greene, one of the world's great storytellers presents a surprising tale that explores the nature of mystery itself…
