And Still The Earth from the Author: Ignácio de Loyola Brandão. In future São Paulo, water is scarce, garbage clogs the roads, and every life is now ruled by the sinister and omnipotent System. A classic novel of “dystopia,” looking back to Orwell’s 1984 and forward to Gilliam’s Brazil. Welcome to São Paulo, Brazil, in the not too distant future. Water is scarce, garbage clogs the city, movement is restricted, and the System—sinister, omnipotent, secret—rules its subjects’ every moment and thought. Here, middle-aged Souza lives a meaningless life in a world where the future is doomed and all memory of the past is forbidden. A classic novel of “dystopia,” looking back to Orwell’s 1984 and forward to Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, And Still the Earth stands with Loyola Brandão’s Zero as one of the author’s greatest, and darkest, achievements.

And Still The Crows Laugh from the Author: Mark Wolfe. Set in the simpler days of the early 1970s, And Still the Crows Laugh is the story of two friends who grow together through their first loves, family difficulties, and their own inward journeys. Through no conscious choices of their own, the boys confront life-altering obstacles. David becomes lost in a world induced by psychedelic drugs, and Ashton unknowingly becomes a member of a clan of crows. With the help of an aged medicine woman, his own recovered ancient memories, and his animal spirits, Ashton enters the underworld and is able to save his friend. David and Ashton get into mischief, solve mysteries, meet a troll, fight monsters, and learn that things are not always what they appear to be. But most importantly, they discover that life is rarely black-and-white and that simply taking the time to listen to the ancient truths they already know may just be the key they need to find happiness.

Replenishing The Earth from the Author: Wangari Maathai. An impassioned call to heal the wounds of our planet and ourselves through the tenets of our spiritual traditions, from a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize It is so easy, in our modern world, to feel disconnected from the physical earth. Despite dire warnings and escalating concern over the state of our planet, many people feel out of touch with the natural world. Nobel laureate Wangari Maathai has spent decades working with the Green Belt Movement to help women in rural Kenya plant—and sustain—millions of trees. With their hands in the dirt, these women often find themselves empowered and “at home” in a way they never did before. Maathai wants to impart that feeling to everyone, and believes that the key lies in traditional spiritual values: love for the environment, self-betterment, gratitude and respect, and a commitment to service. While educated in the Christian tradition, Maathai draws inspiration from many faiths, celebrating the Jewish mandate tikkun olam (“repair the world”) and renewing the Japanese term mottainai (“don’t waste”). Through rededication to these values, she believes, we might finally bring about healing for ourselves and the earth. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Downward To The Earth from the Author: Robert Silverberg. Who knoweth the spirit of men that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth? –Ecclesiastes 3:21 Okay, they did resemble elephants, it can't be denied. That led many people to underestimate the Nildoror and their obviously more fearsome commensals, the Sulidoror. But aliens should never be judged by human standards, as the Company learned to its cost when Holman's World, now once again known as Belzagor, was given back to the natives and the Company sent packing. Now Edmund Gunderson, once head of the Company's operation on this world, has come back across the galaxy to settle old scores with the Nildoror. If he can even get them to acknowledge his existence. Downward to the Earth is a classic from the golden age of Robert Silverberg's career in the 1970s. His homage to Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, it remains as fresh and powerful today as the day it was written. Our Orb edition will have a map of Gunderson's journey across Belzagor and a new introduction by the author. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Cherishing The Earth from the Author: Margot R. Hodson. Ecological problems - drought, global warming, pollution, resources - are headline news. Green movements tend to stress pessimistic outcomes. Anxiety is reasonable, but the Christian response should draw upon the concern of God for his creation. Christians are starting to contribute to the debate, and have a vital specific insight: the Christian message of hope. The Hodsons show how Christians can make a contribution to community life and take the lead in raising awareness, developing recycling, reducing waste and energy use, and encouraging local church-based environmental initiatives.

How The Earth Turned Green from the Author: Joseph E. Armstrong. On this blue planet, long before pterodactyls took to the skies and tyrannosaurs prowled the continents, tiny green organisms populated the ancient oceans. Fossil and phylogenetic evidence suggests that chlorophyll, the green pigment responsible for coloring these organisms, has been in existence for some 85% of Earth’s long history—that is, for roughly 3.5 billion years. In How the Earth Turned Green, Joseph E. Armstrong traces the history of these verdant organisms, which many would call plants, from their ancient beginnings to the diversity of green life that inhabits the Earth today. Using an evolutionary framework, How the Earth Turned Green addresses questions such as: Should all green organisms be considered plants? Why do these organisms look the way they do? How are they related to one another and to other chlorophyll-free organisms? How do they reproduce? How have they changed and diversified over time? And how has the presence of green organisms changed the Earth’s ecosystems? More engaging than a traditional textbook and displaying an astonishing breadth, How the Earth Turned Green will both delight and enlighten embryonic botanists and any student interested in the evolutionary history of plants.
