    Description300 stunning before-and-after photographs that show the staggering transformation of our world. "Earth Then and Now" records the dramatic way our planet has changed over the past century. On one page is a specific part of the world as it was 10, 50 or even 100 years ago. On the facing page is the same place as it looks today. Each stark visual comparison tells a compelling story -- a melting glacier, an expanding desert, an encroaching cityscape, a natural disaster. Additions to the second edition include these important scenes: Before and after the January 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti The movement of land masses due to the February 2010 Chilean earthquake Before and after the fires in South Australia in 2009 Development in New Orleans since the hurricane The destruction of the Amazon rain forest for farming Concise captions explain the facts and then allow the reader to draw personal conclusions. Anyone concerned about the environment will enjoy and appreciate "Earth Then and Now."

    Review quote
    For the many people who love dogs, this will be a welcome addition to the home library, only after being read cover to cover. A comprehensive discussion of every aspect of dogs in general and specific breeds in particular, its engaging style makes it much more than a reference book... Fogle believes that the earliest dogs domesticated themselves, scavenging from human campsites rather than fleeing. Moving through the various categories of breeds, from Nordic breeds to toy and companion dogs, Fogle describes the characteristics of all the breed groups, explaining their innate preferences. Fogle discusses how dogs think and how best to blend them into our families. All the life stages of a dog are described, helping us to understand what to expect at various ages and how to deal with the challenge. Positive reinforcement training of all the basic commands is explained, as well as where to turn for help with difficult dogs. Full-colour photographs of dogs on almost every spread help make this a delightful book.--Gloria Hildebrandt"Escarpment Views" (04/01/2011)
