A mesmerizing novel of unfolding dystopia amid the effects of climate change in a world very like our own, Above the Ether is for readers of Emily St. Science Fiction Book Group. Join us! In , a group of armed, divinely inspired right-wing protestors led by Ammon Bundy occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the high desert of eastern Oregon. Encamped in the shadowlands of the republic, insisting that the federal government had no right to own public land, the occupiers were seen by a divided country as either dangerous extremists dressed up as cowboys, or as heroes insisting on restoring the rule of the Constitution.
Gathering into its vortex the realities of social media technology, history, religion, race, and the environment, McCann offers us a combination of beautiful writing and high-stakes analysis of our current cultural and political moment. McCann will be joined in conversation by Leah Sottile, journalist and host of the Bundyville podcast. An Environmental History of the Willamette Valley. Western Oregon's Willamette Basin, once a vast wilderness, became a thriving community almost overnight.
When Oregon territory was opened for homesteading in the early s, most of the intrepid pioneers settled in the valley, spurring rapid changes in the landscape. Heralded as fertile with a mild climate and an abundance of natural resources, the valley enticed farmers, miners, and loggers, who were quickly followed by the construction of rail lines and roads. Dams were built to harness the once free-flowing Willamette River and provide power to the growing population. As cities rose, people like Portland architect Edward Bennett and conservationist governor Tom McCall worked to contain urban sprawl.

Lana rescues an injured Aquicorn and cares for it with the help of her aunt, who may know more about these strange creatures than she's willing to admit. But when a second storm threatens to reach the town, choices made many years ago about how to coexist with the sea start to rise to the surface. Lana realizes she will need to find the strength to stand on her own, even when it means standing up to the people on whom she has always relied to protect her. It thrills us and torments us. It controls our thoughts, destroys our lives, and it's all we live for. Yet we almost never speak of it.
And as a buried force in our lives, desire remains largely unexplored — until now.
Over the past eight years, journalist Lisa Taddeo has driven across the country six times to embed herself with ordinary women from different regions and backgrounds. Based on years of immersive reporting, and told with astonishing frankness and immediacy, Three Women is a groundbreaking portrait of erotic longing in today's America, exposing the fragility, complexity, and inequality of female desire with unprecedented depth and emotional power. It is both a feat of journalism and a triumph of storytelling, brimming with nuance and empathy, which introduces us to three unforgettable women — and one remarkable writer — whose experiences remind us that we are not alone.

When her sister seizes the throne, Queen Eleanor of Albion is banished to a tiny island off the coast of her kingdom, where the nuns of the convent spend their days peacefully praying, sewing, and gardening. But the island is also home to Margaret, a mysterious young orphan girl whose life is upturned when the cold, regal stranger arrives.

But for the true fan, baseball is always compelling to watch and intellectually fascinating.
From then on, action, suspense, and one thrill after another punctuate a book that equals the best of Fran Striker's famous adventure stories.
