VESPER FLIGHTSA new collection of essays from the bestselling author of H is for Hawk."Macdonald experiments with tempo and style, as if testing out differentaltitudes and finding she can fly at just about any speed, in any direction, withany aim she likes, so supple is her style. She writes about migration patterns andstorms, nests as a metaphor for the domestic and the danger of using nature asmetaphor at all. I was reminded of the goshawk, so thickly plumed, so powerfulthat it can bring down a deer, and yet it weighs only a few pounds. These are thevery paradoxes of Macdonald’s prose — its lightness and force."—Parul Sehgal,New York TimesBRAIDING SWEETGRASS : INDIGENOUS WISDOM, SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGEAND THE TEACHINGS OF PLANTSUpdated with a new introduction from Robin Wall Kimmerer, the specialhardcover edition of Braiding Sweetgrass celebrates the book as an object ofmeaning that will last the ages. Beautifully bound with a new cover featuring anengraving by Tony Drehfal, this edition includes a bookmark ribbon, a decklededge, and five brilliantly colored illustrations by artist Nate Christopherson. Inincreasingly dark times, we honor the experience that more than 350,000readers in North America have cherished about the book—gentle, simple, tactile,beautiful, even sacred.EARTH KEEPER : REFLECTIONS ON THE AMERICAN LANDA beautifully written and poignant tribute to the Earth, from Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist and poet N. Scott Momaday. A member of the Kiowa tribe whowas born and grew up on Indian reservations throughout the Southwest,Momaday reminds us that the Earth is a sacred place of wonder and beauty; asource of strength and healing that must be protected before it’s too late.“Earth Keeper is a story of attachment, rooted in oral tradition. "When I thinkabout my life and the lives of my ancestors, I am inevitably led to the convictionthat I, and they, belong to the American land. This is a declaration of belonging.And it is an offering to the earth.”EROSION : ESSAYS OF UNDOINGNow in paperback! Terry Tempest Williams is one of our most impassioneddefenders of public lands. A naturalist, fervent activist, and stirring writer, shehas spoken to us and for us in books like The Hour of Land: A PersonalTopography of America’s National Parks and Refuge: An Unnatural History ofFamily and Place. In these new essays, Williams explores the concept of erosion:of the land, of the self, of belief, of fear. She wrangles with the paradox of desertlands and the truth of erosion: What is weathered, worn, and whittled awaythrough wind, water, and time is as powerful as what remains. Our undoing isalso our becoming.

THE RADIANT LIVES OF ANIMALSFrom a celebrated Chickasaw writer and environmentalist, a spiritual meditation,in prose and poetry, on our relationship to the animal world, in an illustrated giftpackage. In this illuminating collection of essays and poems, lightly sprinkledwith elegant drawings, Hogan draws on many Native nations’ ancient storiesand spiritual traditions to show us that the soul exists in those delicate placeswhere the natural world extends into human consciousness—in the mist ofmorning, the grass that grew a little through the night, the first warmth of thismorning’s sunlight.A CAT'S TALE : A JOURNEY THROUGH FELINE HISTORYThe first ever illustrated history of the world’s most noble species fromprehistoric times to present day—as told by the cats who lived it. "With A Cat’sTale, I am here to correct the record and expose the reality of feline greatness.Our story spans tens of thousands of miles and many thousands of years. It is astory that humanity has so far stubbornly refused to learn, ignored in favor of afantasy history beginning with a lie: the absurd notion that you domesticated us.Really? If that’s what you believe, go find a bobcat and try." HERBARIUM : THE QUEST TO PRESERVE AND CLASSIFY THE WORLD'S PLANTSSince the 1500s, scientists have documented the plants and fungi that grewaround them, organizing the specimens into collections. Known as herbaria,these archives helped give rise to botany as its own scientific endeavor.Herbarium is a fascinating enquiry into this unique field of plant biology,exploring how herbaria emerged and have changed over time, who promotedand contributed to them, and why they remain such an important source of datafor their new role: understanding how the world’s flora is changing. At its heart,Herbarium is a compelling reminder of one of humanity’s better impulses: tosave things—not just for ourselves, but for generations to come.SEAWEED, AN ENCHANTING MISCELLANYIn this exquisitely illustrated portrait, poet and artist Miek Zwamborn sharesdiscoveries of seaweed’s history, culture, and science. We encounter itsmedicinal and gastronomic properties and long history of human use, from theNeolithic people of the Orkney islands to sushi artisans in modern Japan.

MEMORIAL“Memorial dares to insist on the mundane, thoroughly lived life as asite of perennial hope, joy, and abundance. It casts a fresh take on theAmerican family that becomes truer because of its disparate origins,the queerness of its genesis, and the buoyed wonder it finds insurviving grief and loss towards the rare and forgiving ground ofdifficult, hard-won love. All of this done in sentences clean and clearas cut glass. This book, in what feels like a new vision for the 21stcentury novel, made me happy.” —Ocean Vuong, author of On EarthWe’re Briefly GorgeousBESTIARY“Young queer love, family secrets, and a girl who grows a tiger tail, alltold by a language obsessive? Extremely sold.”—LithubOne evening, Mother tells Daughter a story about a tiger spirit wholived in a woman’s body. She was called Hu Gu Po, and she hungeredto eat children, especially their toes. Soon afterward, Daughterawakes with a tiger tail. And more mysterious events follow: Holes inthe backyard spit up letters penned by her grandmother; a visitingaunt arrives with snakes in her belly; a brother tests the possibility offlight. All the while, Daughter is falling for Ben, a neighborhood girlwith strange powers of her own...EARTHLINGSSayaka Murata’s Convenience Store Woman was one of the mostunusual and refreshing bestsellers of recent years, depicting the life ofa thirty-six-year-old clerk in a Tokyo convenience store.

BENEFICENCEOne of the most widely praised novels of the year, from a part-time Mainer, andauthor of the beloved memoir Without a Map.“A quiet gem of a first novel. The author's lyrical prose and stark portrayal of griefand guilt…is conveyed so movingly this story is hard to put down. With languagepoetic in its cadence and capable of seamlessly transporting our minds andemotions to another place and time, this accomplished debut will be welcomed byreaders of authors such as Willa Cather, Alice Munro, Amy Tan, or Lisa See.”—Library JournalJACKMarilynne Robinson’s mythical world of Gilead, Iowa—the setting of her novelsGilead, Home, and Lila, and now Jack—and its beloved characters have illuminatedand interrogated the complexities of American history, the power of our emotions,and the wonders of a sacred world. Jack is Robinson’s fourth novel in this now-classic series. In it, Robinson tells the story of John Ames Boughton, the prodigalson of Gilead’s Presbyterian minister, and his romance with Della Miles, a highschool teacher who is also the child of a preacher.

This anthology—with stories fromthe likes of Margaret Atwood, Tommy Orange, Edwidge Danticat, and David Mitchell—was created with a simple, time-spanning goal: to gather a collection of storieswritten as our current pandemic first swept the globe. How might new fiction fromsome of the finest writers working today help us memorialize and understand theunimaginable? And what could be learned about how this crisis will affect the art offiction?SHELTER IN PLACEA comic portrait of the months immediately following the 2016 election, Shelter inPlace is also a meditation on the unreliable appetites—for love, for power, forfreedom—by which both our public and private lives are shaped. “A delightfully slycomedy of manners . . . comic and poignant . . . Readers will take in décor of theone-percent, jealous riffs on famous writers, and caricatured liberals andconservatives with voyeuristic glee.” —Booklist
