The Cincinnati Arch: Learning from Nature in the City

John Tallmadge

The Cincinnati Arch: Learning from Nature in the City

Издательство: University of Georgia Press
Год издания: 2004
Код ISBN:
Формат:
Страниц: 226
Содержание:
New to the city, Tallmadge saw only its concrete, glass, smog, and debris. Soon his interest, stirred by the wonder of his children at their new surroundings, focused Tallmadge to the "buzzing, flapping, scurrying, chewing, photosynthesizing life forms" around him. More deeply, Tallmadge began to learn from, and not just about, the city. Nature's persistence - within him and wherever he looked - wore away at old notions of wilderness that made no allowances for human culture. The "arch" of the book's title is richly resonant: as the name of a geologic formation molding the urban landscape Tallmadge comes to love; as an archetypal building form; and, in its parabolic shape, as a metaphor for life's journey. Filled with luminous lessons of mindfulness, attentiveness, and other spiritual practices, this is a hopeful guide to finding nature and balance in unlikely places.

Ramble: A Field Guide to the U.S.A.

Ramble is a hybrid travel guide/travelogue based in fact, but-like a good road trip-is ultimately a flight of fancy, a departure from the usual. Disinfected of the P. R.-inspired copy that dominates travel writing, this book celebrates the USA as the best destination in the world for a road trip because-not in spite-of its warts. Highlighting the country's 250 most definitively American attractions and six of its most mythic road trips, seasoned travel writer Eric Peterson describes seven regions (from coast to coast) with a sociologist-meets-Gonzo-writing-style, bellying up to the ugly truth and the bizarre at every stop. Each regional chapter offers maps, oddball stats, as well as required reading, viewing, and listening; and about thirty to forty listings per area of not-so-run-of-the-mill tourist destinations (think: graves, vices, sin, grub, sleeps, drinks, American lore, and the like). As a topper, a predestined road trip is presented to the reader, with themes such...
