Hemlock: A Forest Giant on the
An appreciation of the beautiful, iconic, and endangered Eastern Hemlock and what it means to nature and society The Eastern Hemlock, massive and majestic, has played a unique role in structuring northeastern forest environments, from Nova Scotia to Wisconsin and through the Appalachian Mountains to North Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama. A “foundation species” influencing all the species in the ecosystem surrounding it, this iconic North American tree has long inspired poets and artists as well as naturalists and scientists. Five thousand years ago, the hemlock collapsed as a result of abrupt global climate change. Now this iconic tree faces extinction once again because of an invasive insect, the hemlock woolly adelgid. Drawing from a century of studies at Harvard University’s Harvard Forest, one of the most well-regarded long-term ecological research programs in North America, the authors explore what hemlock’s modern decline can tell us about the challenges facing nature and society in an era of habitat changes and fragmentation, as well as global change.

On the Burning Edge: A Fateful Fire and the Men Who Fought
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY MEN’S JOURNAL • In the tradition of Sebastian Junger’s The Perfect Storm and Robert Kurson’s Shadow Divers comes a true and heartbreaking tale of courage, difficult decisions, and ultimate sacrifice. On the Burning Edge, by award-winning journalist and former wildland firefighter Kyle Dickman, is the definitive account of the Yarnell Hill Fire. On June 28, 2013, a single bolt of lightning sparked an inferno that devoured more than eight thousand acres in northern Arizona. Twenty elite firefighters—the Granite Mountain Hotshots—walked together into the blaze, tools in their hands and emergency fire shelters on their hips. Only one of them walked out. Dickman brings to the story a professional firefighter’s understanding of how wildfires ignite, how they spread, and how they are fought. He understands hotshots and their culture: the pain and glory of a rough and vital job, the brotherly bonds born of dangerous work. Drawing on dozens of interviews with officials, families of the fallen, and the lone survivor, he describes in vivid detail what it’s like to stand inside a raging fire—and shows how the increased population and decreased water supply of the American West guarantee that many more young men will step int...

The Last Day (Forest at the Edge Book
Salem has been preparing for this day for 165 years. Everyone knows where to go: the Ancient Temple Site, which 27 years ago Guide Gleace saw in vision would be the place of refuge for Salemites fleeing ahead of the Army of Idumea. They know how to go: follow the trees with “bear” slashed marks on the trail which General Perrin Shin and his family have faithfully marked for more than two decades. And they know when to go: gray and black banners will fly over Salem indicating that Idumea is on the move. General Lemuel Thorne, desperate for food and farms, intends to take over Salem to create the largest kingdom the world has ever seen, and unwittingly causing the Last Day as he does so. But no one knows what the "Last Day” means, and Shem wishes the Deliverer would show up and tell him what to do before the army arrives. And no one knows if Young Pere, who’s reluctantly leading the army to Salem, will make it home, and Mahrree won't leave without her grandson. And while nobody knows what The Writings refer to as "the coming Destruction," Young Pere is sure of one thing: He's running out of time before that Destruction arrives.Book 8 is the final in the "Forest at the Edge" series: Part fantasy, part adventure, part humor, part romance, part mys...

Hunting Caribou: Subsistence Hunting along the Northern Edge of the Boreal
Denésuliné hunters range from deep in the Boreal Forest far into the tundra of northern Canada. Henry S. Sharp, a social anthropologist and ethnographer, spent several decades participating in fieldwork and observing hunts by this extended kin group. His daughter, Karyn Sharp, who is an archaeologist specializing in First Nations Studies and is Denésuliné, also observed countless hunts. Over the years the father and daughter realized that not only their personal backgrounds but also their disciplinary specializations significantly affected how each perceived and understood their experiences with the Denésuliné.In Hunting Caribou, Henry and Karyn Sharp attempt to understand and interpret their decades-long observations of Denésuliné hunts through the multiple disciplinary lenses of anthropology, archaeology, and ethnology. Although questions and methodologies differ between disciplines, the Sharps’ ethnography, by connecting these components, provides unique insights into the ecology and motivations of hunting societies.Themes of gender, women’s labor, insects, wolf and caribou behavior, scale, mobility and transportation, and land use are linked through the authors’ personal voice and experiences. This participant ethnography makes an important contribution to multi...
