Most widely held works by Frank Stewart
A natural history of nature writing by Frank Stewart( Book )
5 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 731 libraries worldwide
In Western society we feel neither entirely at one with our fellow creatures, nor entirely separate. Over the years, nature writers have struggled, in memorable language, with this feeling of "in-betweeness." A Natural History of Nature Writing shows us how this genre combines the rigors of science with the beauty of art to make our minds and our hearts whole. The book offers a penetrating overview of the origins and development of this uniquely American literature. Essayist and poet Frank Stewart describes in rich and compelling prose the lives and works of the most prominent American nature writers of the 19th and 20th centuries

A World between waves ( Book )
4 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 178 libraries worldwide
"A World Between Waves brilliantly evokes the stunning beauty of America's own tropical paradise. These essays on the natural history of Hawaii by some of America's most renowned writers constitute both a literary celebration of the wonders of the islands and a passionate call to action on behalf of what may soon be gone." "From the "discovery" of the islands by Captain James Cook and the early naturalists who wrote of their treasures to contemporary scientists and observers, these essays capture the history and magnificence of a land that is part of and yet separate from the United States, at once familiar and exotic. This book is a testament to the biological and geological wealth of this unique and threatened island landscape." "A World Between Waves brings to life Hawaii's magnificent islands and seas, forests and volcanoes. For travelers and armchair travelers alike, it is a compelling and inspirational tour guide."--Jacket

Varua Tupu : new writing from French Polynesia ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 102 libraries worldwide
"Varua Tupu: New Writing and Art from French Polynesia strengthens the ancient ties between Hawai'i and the islands of French Polynesia by translating the voices of an emerging Ma'ohi (Polynesian) literary community into English and showcasing the cultural arts of the region in general. This volume features translations of a variety of locally celebrated genres, including poetry, memoir, and fiction. Though this work is focussed on the current moment, it includes fresh translations of poet Henri Hiro, who served as a spark to the tinder of the Tahitian cultural renaissance in the 1960s and 1970s and who continues to inspire the current generation of literary activists. Since the eighteenth century, a mythic and misleading image of Tahiti has become familiar to the world at large. Varua Tupu represents the first opportunity for the international community to experience the many islands of Te Ao Ma'ohi through their own voices and visual arts"--Publisher
Silence to light : Japan and the shadows of war ( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
On the sixtieth anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, Silence to Light illuminates the tumultuous period, and the aftermath of World War II and the war in Asia. Through fiction, memoirs, film scripts, poetry, and manga (Japanese cartoons), the volume brings to light the personal and communal memories that have disappeared into silence. Readers get a new and vivid perspective on such events as the Manchurian Incident, the rape of Nanking, Japanese American internment, and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The authors include well-know Japanese figures, such as Yukio Mishima and Dazai Osamu, and such contemporary authors as Hayashi Kyoko, Choko Ishigaki, and Keiji Nakazawa. American authors adding their perspective include Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, Donald Ritchie, and Gladys Swan. Work by Linda Gregg, Martha Zweig, and other American authors is also included

Other oceans by Wayne Levin( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
"Millions of people visit aquariums each year. These showplaces are invaluable educational tools and, more importantly, provide a window into a mysterious world that few of us will ever experience firsthand. But that world is increasingly threatened by human misuse - by pollution, over-fishing, global warming. Accompanying the waste and devastation is a global trend toward building bigger, more fantastic aquariums. Marvels of architecture and engineering, these artificial oceans seem to be our way of preserving the sea even as we destroy it." "The duotone photographs presented in Other Oceans are the result of visits to fourteen aquariums in the United States and Japan and diving trips off the coasts of California (including Santa Barbara Island), Hawai'i, and Midway Atoll."--Jacket

The mystified boat : postmodern stories from China ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
"Influenced by international postmodernism and driven by a passion for the new, Chinese writers have experimented with every element of fiction since the 1990s. Using ironic wordplay, direct address of readers, and self-consciousness misdirection, they create mesmerizing fictional worlds full of surprise, humor, and sexuality. Here are some of China's most exciting and best-known postmodern writers: Ge Fei, Ma Yuan, Hong Ying, Su Tong, Ma Jian, Lin Bai, Yan Li, Can Xue, Wang Anyi, and Yu Hua. Also in this volume are a portfolio of paintings by Chinese artist Mu Xin; a new poem by Arthur Sze; and reviews of recent books. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
