In this cri de coeur about the Gulfs environmental ruin (New York Times), Davis has written a beautiful homage to a neglected sea (front page, New York Times Book Review).
Hailed as a nonfiction epic . . . in the tradition of Jared Diamonds best-seller Collapse, and Simon Winchesters Atlantic (Dallas Morning News), Jack E. Daviss The Gulf is by turns informative, lyrical, inspiring and chilling for anyone who cares about the future of Americas Sea (Wall Street Journal). Illuminating Americas political and economic relationship with the environment from the age of the conquistadors to the present, Davis demonstrates how the Gulfs fruitful ecosystems and exceptional beauty empowered a growing nation. Filled with vivid, untold stories from the sportfish that launched Gulfside vacationing to Hollywoods role in the countrys first offshore oil wells, this vast and welltold story shows how we made the Gulf . . . into a national sacrifice zone (Bill McKibben). The first and only study of its kind, The Gulf offers a unique and illuminating history of the American Southern coast and sea as it should be written (Edward O. Wilson).

The Book Club
Mary Alice Monroe invites you to meet five remarkable characters as she explores the power of friendship with tenderness, honesty and understanding.
On the surface, it is a monthly book club. But for five women, it is so much more. For Eve Porter, whose husband's sudden death cheats her of every security she had planned on, the club is a place of sanctuary. For Annie Blake, a brilliant attorney intent on starting a family late in life, it is the chance to finally let down her guard and dream of other possibilities. For Doris Bridges, it is her support group as she acknowledges her dying marriage and finds the ultimate freedom in her husband's betrayal. For Gabriella Rivera, the "perfect" wife, mother and friend who offers support to everyone but is afraid to ask for it herself, it is a sense of community. And for Midge Kirsch, an artist who has always lived her life against the grain, it is a haven of acceptance.
They are five women from different walks of life, embracing the challenge of change. And as they share their hopes and fears and triumphs, they will hold fast to the true magic of the book clubfriendship.

A Million Fragile Bones
Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. Environmental Studies. On April 20th, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon, a BP operated oil rig, exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. Eleven men died in the explosion. Before the well was capped, it spewed an estimated 4.9 million gallons of oil into the gulf. The spill directly impacted 68,000 miles of ocean, and oil washed ashore along the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas and Florida.
Connie May Fowler began that day as she had begun most days for the previous sixteen years, immersed in the natural world that was her home on Alligator Point on Florida's gulf coast, surrounded by dunes and water birds, watching dolphins swim in the distance. Then began the nightmare from which she would not emerge for more than a year.
In her memoir, A MILLION FRAGILE BONES, she details the beauty and peace she found on Alligator Point after years of heartbreak and loss, and the devastation and upheaval that followed the oil spill. It is, at its heart, a love song to the natural world and a cry of anger and grief at its ruin for the sake of corporate profits.
