America: An Amazing Place (Sassi Travel)
Few countries around the world offer the variety of landscapes and ecosystems that the United States does, representing everything from desert to mountains to seashore to wide rolling plains. Equally fascinating American cities are full of ethnic enclaves, famous neighborhoods and landmarks recognizable around the world. The national park system of the United States comprises 84 million acres of land; the country is home to more than 17,000 museums large and small. filled with striking photographs, this book presents both impressive man made sights like the Brooklyn Bridge, the world's longest suspension bridge when it was completed in 1883, and natural wonders like the 277-mile long Grand Canyon.
More intimate settings are explored as well, including Pittsburgh's Andy Warhol Museum and the Live Oak Friends Meeting House in Texas with its single work of art, the meditative Skyspace. Brief text and captions provide background and history about subjects such as the great battles of the American Revolution and the inspirational activism of the civil rights era. From jazz to baseball to drive-ins, the inventive spirit of this relatively young nation never lets up, and this volume matches that energy.
In this book, the 50 states have been arranged into the six commonly used, though unofficial, regions loosely grouped by geography and climate, though the individuality of each state cannot help but shine through.

House of Rain: Tracking a Vanished Civilization Across the American Southwest
In this landmark work on the Anasazi tribes of the Southwest, naturalist Craig Childs dives head on into the mysteries of this vanished people.
The various tribes that made up the Anasazi people converged on Chaco Canyon (New Mexico) during the 11th century to create a civilization hailed as "the Las Vegas of its day," a flourishing cultural center that attracted pilgrims from far and wide, and a vital crossroads of the prehistoric world. By the 13th century, however, Chaco's vibrant community had disappeared without a trace.
Was it drought? Pestilence? War? Forced migration, mass murder or suicide? Conflicting theories have abounded for years, capturing the North American imagination for eons.
Join Craig Childs as he draws on the latest scholarly research, as well as a lifetime of exploration in the forbidden landscapes of the American Southwest, to shed new light on this compelling mystery. He takes us from Chaco Canyon to the highlands of Mesa Verde, to the Mongollon Rim; to a contemporary Zuni community where tribal elders maintain silence about the fate of their Lost Others; and to the largely unexplored foothills of the Sierra Madre in Mexico, where abundant remnants of Anasazi culture lie yet to be uncovered.

The Women of Brewster Place (Penguin Contemporary American Fiction Series)
The National Book Award-winning novel that launched the brilliant career of Gloria Naylor (1950-2016)
In her heralded first novel, Gloria Naylor weaves together the stories of seven women living in Brewster Place, a bleak-inner city sanctuary, creative a powerful, moving portrait of the strengths, struggles, and hopes of black women in America. Vulnerable and resilient, openhanded and openhearted, these women forge their lives in a place that in turn threatens and protects - a common prison and a shared home. Adapted into a 1989 ABC miniseries starring Oprah Winfrey, The Women of Brewster Place is a contemporary classic - and a touching and unforgettable read.
"A shrewd and lyrical portrayal of many of the realities of black life . . . Miss Naylor bravely risks sentimentality and melodrama to write her compassion and outrage large, and she pulls it off triumphantly." -The New York Times Book Review
