    More than a century after the birth of Rachel Carson, the world faces a new environmental disaster, from a chemical similar to DDT. This time the culprit appears to be IMD, or imidacloprid, a relatively new but widely used insecticide in the United States. Many beekeepers and researchers blame IMD for Colony Collapse Disorder, which has wiped out 23% of America’s beehives. Since honeybees are essential to the production of major food crops, their demise could spell catastrophe. In a riveting detective story that melds science and politics, Michael Schacker examines the evidence and offers a plan to save the bees. Like An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring before it, A Spring without Bees is a compelling cautionary tale and a clarion call for action.

    In this first comprehensive authorized biography of David Brower, a dynamic leader in the environmental movement over the last half of the twentieth century, Tom Turner explores Brower's impact on the movement from its beginnings until his death in 2000.Frequently compared to John Muir, David Brower was the first executive director of the Sierra Club, founded Friends of the Earth, and helped secure passage of the Wilderness Act, among other key achievements. Tapping his passion for wilderness and for the mountains he scaled in his youth, he was a central figure in the creation of the Point Reyes National Seashore and of the North Cascades and Redwood national parks. In addition, Brower worked tirelessly in successful efforts to keep dams from being built in Dinosaur National Monument and the Grand Canyon.Tom Turner began working with David Brower in 1968 and remained close to him until Brower’s death. As an insider, Turner creates an intimate portrait of Brower the man and the decisive role he played in the development of the environmental movement. Culling material from Brower’s diaries, notebooks, articles, books, and published interviews, and conducting his own interviews with many of Brower’s admirers, opponents, and colleagues, Turner brings to life one of the movement's most controversial and complex figures.

    Bill McKibben has a stark and sobering message about our world: We've waited too long to stop the advance of global warming, and massive change is not only unavoidable but already uinderway. McKibben shows that we can't rely on old habits and the false promise of endless economic growth to address the binds and traps that characterize this new planet. Instead, our hope depends on building the kind of societies and economies that can hunker down, concentrate on essentials, and create the type of community that will allow us to weather trouble on a planet suddenly and violently out of balance.

    Master Tracker Paul Rezendes has followed bobcat through impenetrable swamps, and howled with coyotes in a moonlit field. Here, he weaves vivid accounts of lessons learned in the wild with the story of his extraordinary life progression from gang member to Zen woodsman. Leaving his past behind, he sought a truer path?and learned about compassion from a curious 750-pound bull moose, and discovered the inseparability of life and death through a wrenching encounter between a coyote and a deer. These stories transport readers from the slopes of Maine's Mount Katahdin to Cape Cod's sun-drenched blueberry tangles to the brink of a fox's forest lair. With this book, he shows us how to live in the natural world, moving soundlessly, watching where we put our feet, gauging the wind, and entering a new state of awareness. A dramatic, deeply spiritual book, The Wild Within is one of those rare books with the power to change the way we see ourselves?and make the natural world come alive.
