When Women Were Birds: Fifty-Four Variations on Voice by Terry Tempest Williams
When Women Were Birds: Fifty-Four Variations on Voice

KEB, January 1, 2013

Terry Tempest Williams compassionately and unflinchingly examines her relationship with her mother through contemplations on her mother's journals. The shelves of journals that her mother left to her were all blank. Each of the 54 short chapters is a variation on voice -- and also the age of her mother when she died. Beautifully written.

1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles C. Mann
1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus

KEB, January 19, 2012

1491 is a sweeping and gripping book about the Americas before Columbus which greatly increased my knowledge of the early American advanced civilizations. As one example, if we could rediscover how the indigenous Amazonians created the Amazon landscape and maintained fertility in tropical soils for 1000 years(!) we'd be able to improve poor tropical soils in Africa and elsewhere for sustainable agriculture.
