  • 17 July 2018
cover imageMississippi. 1966. On a hot June afternoon an African-American man named James Meredith set out to walk through his home state, intending to fight racism and fear with his feet. A seemingly simple plan, but one teeming with risk. Just one day later Meredith was shot and wounded in a roadside ambush. Within twenty-four hours, Martin Luther King, Jr., Stokely Carmichael, and other civil rights leaders had taken up Meredith's cause, determined to overcome this violent act and complete Meredith's walk. The stakes were high--there was no time for advance planning and their route cut through dangerous territory. No one knew if they would succeed. By many measures the March Against Fear became one of the greatest protests of the civil rights era. But it was also one of the last, and the campaign has been largely forgotten. Critically acclaimed author Ann Bausum brings this crucial turning point of civil rights history back to life, escorting you along the dusty Mississippi roads where heroic marchers endured violence, rage, and fear as they walked more than 200 miles in the name of equality and justice.

As any pet owner can attest, we feel that the animals we've formed bonds with are unique, as particular (and peculiar) as any friend or loved one. Scientists, however, have only recently begun to accept the notion that animals of all kinds do indeed have individual personalities. Researchers are finding that each wolf, bear, and coyote has a different tendency to follow its predatory nature or to shyly avoid conflicts. Unique personalities can be discovered in every corner of the animal kingdom -- including among insects and even microscopic organisms. The array of personality types among all species is only beginning to be described and understood. In Mousy Cats and Sheepish Coyotes, veteran wildlife expert John Shivik brings us stories from the frontlines of this exciting new research."--Container.
