    Stone Wall Secrets

    , ,
    What can rocks in old stone walls tell us about how the earth's crust was shaped, melted by volcanoes, carved by glaciers, and weathered by the elements? And what can they tell us about earlier people on the land? As Adam and his grandfather work to repair the family farm's old stone walls, Adam learns how fascinating geology can be, and how a landscape provides clues to the past.

    The A1 Diner

    , , ,
    The A1 DINER, by Sarah Rolph, starts in 1946 when Worcester Diner #790 arrived by truck and was installed at 3 Bridge Street in Gardiner, Maine. Under the name of Heald's Diner, it served employees of Gardiner's mills and factories with an emphasis on ample portions served quickly. The diner is still at 3 Bridge Street, still a marvel of efficiency and art modern design, still a local gathering place, still serving the same warm, flaky biscuits. But under the ownership of Mike Giberson and Neil Anderson since 1988, the little A1 Diner (as it is now known) draws customers (and restaurant reviews) from far and wide with its wonderfully eclectic menu (you can order Bouillabaisse or meatloaf), its emphasis on fresh, local food, and its upscale deli and specialty food store next door, A1 To Go. This is a small business success story, filled with characters from either side of the counter, packed with recipes and kitchen notes, enjoyable down to the last bite.

    The Catboat Era

    , ,
    THE CATBOAT ERA, by John M. Leavens, takes us to Newport, R.I. When we think of Newport at the end of the nineteenth century, we think of life lived large--big houses, big yachts, big money. But like the diversity of people to be found in any waterfront town, there was a diversity of watercraft in Newport waters. In among the yachts are found the workboats and other small craft. John Leavens took a look back at the humble catboat, and found a wealth of information about its origin, its builders, and its owners.

    The Cranberry

    THE CRANBERRY, by Stephen Cole and Lindy Gifford, explores how a wild fruit became a cultivated commodity; the American cranberry contains equal amounts of holiday symbolism and antioxidants. Its evolution over the past century is a surprising story of risk, enterprise, conflict, and the tension between tradition and innovation. The cranberry is characterized by the distinctive regions--from Cape Cod to the Pacific Northwest--where it is grown. But the diminutive fruit has also changed the life and landscape of these places. THE CRANBERRY harvests stories, images, and observations to tell the unusual tale of an American subculture dominated by this tart little red fruit.

    The Eye of the Whale

    , , , , , ,
    In THE EYE OF THE WHALE by author/illustrator Jennifer O’Connell, a distress call was radioed to shore by a local fisherman off the coast of San Francisco. He had discovered a humpback whale tangled in hundreds of yards of crab-trap lines, struggling to stay at the water’s surface to breathe. A team of volunteers answered the call, and four divers risked their lives to rescue the enormous animal. What followed was a rare and remarkable demonstration of animal intelligence that has been celebrated around the world.
