Liberty Hyde Bailey : essential agrarian and environmental writings by L. H Bailey( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bailey style is characterized as following the tradition of Emerson, Burroughs, and Muir. From it, one acquires a clear sense of Bailey's emotive and observational sensibilities. In the group of excerpts presented under the editor's designation as "Appreciations," which include "Apple Tree," "Wind," "Weed," "Evening," and "Morning," Bailey reveals his revolutionary but uncomplicated thinking. Few contemporary writers remind the reader in such reflective rhetoric of the simple--yet provocative--ecological meaning of the commonplace phenomena that surround us. These characteristics and Bailey's expository prose provide this work with its most poignant and essential contribution. The book jacket presents two photos of Bailey, whose wisdom will be valuable for a wide readership. Copyright 2009 American Library Association

Inside the ropes : sportswriters get their game on by Zachary Michael Jack( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most of us will never know what it's like to parachute out of a Cessna, tend goal for the Boston Bruins, burn rubber on a Q DVF DU track, scale Everest, or quarterback the Detroit Lions. So it's our good fortune when dauntless literary journalists actually play the sports they cover - returning with firsthand tales from "inside the ropes." Here, in the tradition popularized by George Plimpton, is participatory sportswriting at its finest and most far-out. Editor Zachary Michael Jack fields a dream team of today's best sports journalists, hotshots, and rising stars in search of the game behind the game." "More than three dozen decorated writers take the field. Heirs apparent such as Tom Verducci, Jack McCallum, Melissa King, and Sam Walker join veterans Paul Gallico, George Plimpton, Davis Miller, Donald Katz, Tim Cahill, Grace Butcher, and James McManus in swinging for the journalistic fence. Together these thrill-seeking men and women capture the mojo of returning John McEnroe's serve, taking a punch from Ali, paddling Jack London's Alaskan river route, coaching the Phoenix Suns' Steve Nash, umping Manny Ramirez. Forty eye-popping accounts offer the straight scoop as never before - not just in the field but on it."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Culled from more than a half dozen volumes of Wallace's writing for farm families, Uncle Henry Wallace: Letters to Farm Families captures the spirit of a man journalist Ray Stannard Baker called "a sort of oracle for advice on everything from the best ways of feeding calves to bringing up boys."" "Compiled and introduced by fourth-generation Iowa farmer's son Zachary Michael Jack, himself the great-grandson of famed agricultural writer Walter Thomas Jack, these timeless, down-to-earth missives that are meant to be shared, then as now, between farm-loving grandparents and grandchildren, parents and children, and teachers and students of all ages."--Jacket

"Long before George Plimpton donned shoulder pads for Paper Lion, sportswriters were stepping onto the field. This anthology collects 38 essays from the Gilded and Golden Age greats. Charles Dickens, Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and more prowled sporting grounds in a time when, as Grantland Rice put it, "a flame ... lit up the sporting skies and covered the world.""--Provided by publisher
