Death of a Hornet and Other Cape Cod Essays, Finch, David

4 Finch, David Death of a Hornet and Other Cape Cod Essays
Counterpoint,U.S. 2001 1582431388 / 9781582431383 First Edition Trade Paperback Very Good Trade Paperback 
Book is solid, tight and clean; no creasing to spine. Some folded edges at bottom corner, slight sticker remains on front cover, and crease to bottom front cover corner (not visable from exterior). "Spanning more than 20 years, these essays record changes not only in the natural environment of Cape Cod but in the writer's own life. Death of a Hornet is one man's elegant rendering of Cape Cod, a sandy, scrub-oaked, tough, and vulnerable spit of land reaching out into the Atlantic Ocean. These stories are "natural adventures" that Finch's previous readers have come to expect, as well as longer meditations on the future of the Cape's fragile environment, on living in one place for a long time, and on the limitations of human sympathy."

The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2004 (The Best American Series), Pinker, Steven (Ed.)

8 Pinker, Steven (Ed.) The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2004 (The Best American Series)
Houghton Mifflin New York 2004 0618246983 / 9780618246984 Trade Paperback Very Good + Trade Paperback 
Book is solid and clean; no creases to spine; no marks to interior pages. Bottom outer corners bumped; light creasing to bottom of back cover. "Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For each volume, a series editor reads pieces from hundreds of periodicals, then selects between fifty and a hundred outstanding works. That selection is pared down to the twenty or so very best pieces by a guest editor who is widely recognized as a leading writer in his or her field. This unique system has helped make the Best American series the most respected -- and most popular -- of its kind. The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2004, edited by Steven Pinker, is another provocative and thoroughly enjoyable [collection] from start to finish (Publishers Weekly). Here is the best and newest on science and nature: the psychology of suicide terrorism, desperate measures in surgery, the weird world of octopuses, Sex Week at Yale, the linguistics of click languages, the worst news about cloning, and much more."
