From Publishers WeeklyStarred Review. Beginning with a recently discovered 47-­million-­year-­old primate fossil, Switek effectively and eloquently demonstrates the exponential increase in fossils that have been found since Darwin first published On the Origin of Species. In delightful prose, he blends information about fossil evidence with the scientific debates about how that evidence might be best interpreted. Switek, who writes the Smithsonian's Dinosaur Tracking blog, focuses on evidence for the evolution of major lineages, from reptiles to birds and from fish to tetrapods. He also explains at length how whales, horses, and humans evolved, marshaling compelling fossil evidence and combining it with information from molecular biology; at every step, he makes clear what is still unknown. He underscores that life forms have not "progressed" through evolution to end with Homo sapiens as the highest life form; rather, evolution has produced "a wildly branching tree of life with no . . .

Is it “Stalinist” for a formerly communist country to tear down a statue of Stalin? Should the Confederate flag be allowed to fly over the South Carolina state capitol? Is it possible for America to honor General Custer and the Sioux Nation, Jefferson Davis and Abraham Lincoln? Indeed, can a liberal, multicultural society memorialize anyone at all, or is it committed to a strict neutrality about the quality of the lives led by its citizens?­In Written in Stone, legal scholar Sanford Levinson considers the tangled responses of ever-­changing societies to the monuments and commemorations created by past regimes or outmoded cultural and political systems. Drawing on examples from Albania to Zimbabwe, from Moscow to Managua, and paying particular attention to examples throughout the American South, Levinson looks at social and legal arguments regarding the display, construction, modification, and destruction of public monuments. He asks what kinds of claims the past has on the present, . . .

Rosanne Parry author of Heart of a Shepherd, shines a light on Native American tribes of the Pacific Northwest in the 1920s, a time of critical cultural upheaval.

Pearl has always dreamed of hunting whales, just like her father. Of taking to the sea in their eight-­man canoe, standing at the prow with a harpoon, and waiting for a whale to lift its barnacle-­speckled head as it offers its life for the life of the tribe. But now that can never be. Pearl's father was lost on the last hunt, and the whales hide from the great steam-­powered ships carrying harpoon cannons, which harvest not one but dozens of whales from the ocean. With the whales gone, Pearl's people, the Makah, struggle to survive as Pearl searches for ways to preserve their stories and skills.

Like the Great Pyramid, mysteries surround the other pyramids as well as other features found at the Giza plateau in Egypt. For example: ? Why does the second pyramid have two entrances, both off center, while the single entrance to the third pyramid is centered? ? What was the purpose of the two lower chambers in the second pyramid? Moreover, why was the sarcophagus in this pyramid made to be wider than the passages that lead to the upper chamber? In a related matter, why were the bones of a bull placed in the sarcophagus? And why was the sarcophagus sunk into the floor up to its lid? ? At the third pyramid, why were parts of a body dating to the Christian period wrapped in a coarse yellow woolen cloth and buried beneath three feet of rubbish in the upper chamber? ? Why in the third pyramid was the lower vaulted chamber designed so that it would absorb both sound and light? ? Out on the plateau, what was the purpose of the so-­called trial passages? ? On the south side of the . . .

The Great Pyramid--­mysteries abound . . . For example: Why was the subterranean chamber apparently abandoned and yet it is larger than the Queen's Chamber and the King's Chamber combined? Why is there a pit in the floor of the subterranean chamber, and why does the narrow passage that snakes south off the subterranean chamber come to a sudden end after 53 feet? Why was sand from the Sinai hidden behind the wall of the horizontal passage to the Queen's Chamber, and why is there a sudden drop in that passage? Why was the Grand Gallery built so large in comparison to the ascending passage, and why are the slots in the ramps of the Grand Gallery empty? Why was the antechamber to the King's Chamber built with both limestone and granite blocks, and what purpose could the so-­called Granite Leaf have served? Egyptologists, pyramidologists, and others outside these two camps have attempted to explain such anomalies. Their theories are examined and compared to a new vision that answers not . . .
