Thoreau's Legacy: American Stories about Global book

Dear friends,

It's supposed to be 101-degrees here today, and 102 tomorrow. Husband and I were up early to water the garden. The ground is cracked and dry. The rosemary and lavender are lovin' it...everything else, not so much.

I just got this bit of news from the Union of Concerned Scientists about a new online book they've published along with Penguin. Thoreau's Legacy: American Stories about Global Warming introduces a new generation of writers and photographers with a personal connection to global warming. The 67 essays and images in this anthology are drawn from nearly 1,000 submissions about beloved places, people, plants, animals, and activities at risk from a changing climate—and the efforts that individuals are making to save what they love. A foreword by author Barbara Kingsolver serves as a powerful call to action.

Check it out!

Dig it!
