✏The Hour of Land Book Summary : America’s national parks are breathing spaces in a world in which such spaces are steadily disappearing, which is why more than 300 million people visit the parks each year. Now Terry Tempest Williams, the author of the environmental classic Refuge and the beloved memoir When Women Were Birds, returns with The Hour of Land, a literary celebration of our national parks, an exploration of what they mean to us and what we mean to them. From the Grand Tetons in Wyoming to Acadia in Maine to Big Bend in Texas and more, Williams creates a series of lyrical portraits that illuminate the unique grandeur of each place while delving into what it means to shape a landscape with its own evolutionary history into something of our own making. Part memoir, part natural history, and part social critique, The Hour of Land is a meditation and a manifesto on why wild lands matter to the soul of America.

✏The Hour of the Bell Book Summary : In 1821, in the geographically small but culturally and historically rich country of Greece, a revolution began to overturn four terrible centuries of slavery the Greeks had endured under the Ottoman Turks. Harry Mark Petrakis's historical novel The Hour of the Bell recalls the first year of the revolt. Petrakis provides a panoramic view of the conflict through the stories of a variety of characters, including a village priest grief-stricken over the killing of his Turkish neighbors; a guerilla captain leading a band of wild mountain fighters against the Turkish garrisons; the wife of Prince Petrobey of the Mani, embittered by the fighting that takes the lives of her sons; a sea captain commanding the smaller Greek brigs in brilliant forays against the larger Turkish frigates; and a scribe to the legendary General Kolokotronis. Each character provides a defining perspective on the small but fierce conflict that altered the course of European history.

With special focus on tides, time of day, and season, Smolinski helps enhance the reader’s chances of observing the wildlife that is so unexpectedly plentiful here. Smolinski is not only an avid kayaker but also a builder of wooden kayaks, and he devotes sections to the immense satisfaction of being on the water in a craft made from scratch—a Zen experience, he says.This guide is your first choice for launching your DC paddling adventures. Longtime paddler and wooden kayak builder Steve Smolinski has written for Sports Focus Magazine. This is his first book. He and his wife paddle their hand-built kayaks in and near DC, as well as elsewhere, whenever they possibly can.
