Abstract: In this brilliant sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, acclaimed author Margaret Atwood answers the questions that have tantalized readers for decades.When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her-freedom, prison or death. With The Testaments, the wait is over. Margaret Atwood's sequel picks up the story fifteen years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead. "Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in." -Margaret Atwood

Abstract: Welcome to a serene woodland where lots of expectant animal parents are in their "nesting" phase - that is, busy preparing safe, cozy homes for their growing families. As they dig, tunnel, gnaw, and gather, they create dens, burrows, lodges, and, of course, nests. Soon the woods are full of new little ones peeping, crawling, romping, and snuggling - and with artwork so gorgeous that it feels like an invitation into the scenery it's depicting, readers will be eager to join them in their beautiful home.

Abstract: Considerato l'erede spirituale di Henry David Thoreau e John Muir, Leopold è il padre della filosofia della wilderness e pioniere dell'etica della terra. È ritenuto tra i più grandi ecologi del ventesimo secolo. Alternando registri e stili diversi - racconto, saggio naturalistico, trattato filosofico e scientifico - "Pensare come una montagna" dà vita a un'opera letteraria di rara bellezza e profondità. La prima parte del libro, organizzata in forma di almanacco e scandita dal susseguirsi dei mesi nella sua fattoria in Wisconsin - il suo «rifugio dalla modernità» - è una celebrazione della natura selvaggia, dall'infinito splendore della prateria ai meravigliosi ritratti della fauna e della flora, dei suoi suggestivi suoni, colori e odori. La seconda parte è dedicata ad alcune esperienze, sparse in tutto il continente americano, che permisero a Leopold di osservare le profonde ferite che l'uomo stava infliggendo alla terra, e di rintracciarne le cause principali. Infine, nella sezione conclusiva, Leopold tratteggia i fondamenti di un'etica della terra, esortando l'uomo moderno a «pensare come una montagna», a trascendere il punto di vista antropocentrico e contemplare la natura e le creature che vivono su di essa non come una mera proprietà da sfruttare ma come un organismo dotato di equilibrio, armonia e bellezza - e da cui dipende la nostra stessa integrità e salute.

Abstract: After ten years together, Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls, and they communicate so seamlessly they finish each other’s sentences. They have a happy marriage and believe they know everything there is to know about each other. Until it’s casually mentioned to them that they could be together for another sixty-eight years . . . and panic sets in. They decide to bring surprises into their marriage to keep it fresh and fun. But in their pursuit of Project Surprise Me—from unexpected gifts to restaurant dates to sexy photo shoots—mishaps arise, with disastrous and comical results. Gradually, surprises turn to shocking truths. And when a scandal from the past is uncovered, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other at all. With a colorful cast of eccentric characters, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit and charm, Sophie Kinsella presents a humorous yet moving portrait of a marriage—its intricacies, comforts, and complications. Surprise Me reveals that hidden layers in a close relationship are often yet to be discovered.

Abstract: Before the Civil War, a network of secret routes and safe houses crisscrossed the Midwest to help African Americans travel north to escape slavery. Although many slaves were able to escape to the safety of Canada, others met untimely deaths on the treacherous journey-and some of these unfortunates still linger, unable to rest in peace. InHauntings of the Underground Railroad: Ghosts of the Midwest, Jane Simon Ammeson investigates unforgettable and chilling tales of these restless ghosts that still walk the night. This unique collection includes true and gruesome stories, like the story of a lost toddler who wanders the woods near the Story Inn, eternally searching for the mother torn from him by slave hunters, or the tale of the Hannah House, where an overturned oil lamp sparked a fire that trapped slaves hiding in the basement and burned them alive. Brave visitors who visit the house, which is now a bed and breakfast, claim they can still hear voices moaning and crying from the basement.Ammeson also includes incredible true stories of daring escapes and close calls on the Underground Railroad. A fascinating and spine-tingling glimpse into our past,Hauntings of the Underground Railroadwill keep you up all night.

Abstract: Trees were central to Henry David Thoreau's creativity as a writer, his work as a naturalist, his thought, and his inner life. His portraits of them were so perfect, it was as if he could see the sap flowing beneath their bark. When Thoreau wrote that the poet loves the pine tree as his own shadow in the air, he was speaking about himself. In short, he spoke their language. In this original book, Richard Higgins explores Thoreau's deep connections to trees: his keen perception of them, the joy they gave him, the poetry he saw in them, his philosophical view of them, and how they fed his soul. His lively essays show that trees were a thread connecting all parts of Thoreau's being-heart, mind, and spirit. Included are one hundred excerpts from Thoreau's writings about trees, paired with over sixty of the author's photographs. Thoreau's words are as vivid now as they were in 1890, when an English naturalist wrote that he was unusually able to "to preserve the flashing forest colors in unfading light." Thoreau and the Language of Trees shows that Thoreau, with uncanny foresight, believed trees were essential to the preservation of the world.

Abstract: Tutti sanno chi è Jack Wade, ma nessuno lo conosce davvero. Non gli studenti del corso di sociologia, né i colleghi che lo coprono durante le ronde notturne. Nessuna delle ragazze che ha sedotto negli ultimi mesi e nemmeno coloro che un tempo chiamava amici. Neppure Gwen, l’unica a cui abbia permesso di avvicinarsi tanto, è riuscita a comprendere fino in fondo la sua natura. Dietro un sorriso affascinante e un paio di occhi cerulei, si cela una creatura inquieta, oscura come la notte più buia. Un uomo che, una volta dismessi i panni da bravo ragazzo, s’intrufola nelle vite altrui per appropriarsi dei segreti più gelosamente custoditi. Le vittime non si accorgono del suo passaggio perché lui è come un fantasma, che entra ed esce dalle loro case in punta di piedi, senza rivelare mai la propria esistenza. Finché, una notte, Jack non entra nell’appartamento sbagliato. In un luogo in cui sembra che il tempo si sia fermato. Nel posto in cui un incontro inaspettato potrebbe cambiare per sempre la sua vita
