To the Mountaintop: My Journey Through the Civil Rights Movement DO NOT RETURN

To the Mountaintop: My Journey Through the Civil Rights Movement DO NOT RETURN

Hunter-Gault, Charlayne
$12.99

A personal history of the civil rights movement from activist and acclaimed New York Times and NPR journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault.

On January 20, 2009, 1.8 million people crowded the grounds of the Capitol to witness the inauguration of Barack Obama. Among the masses was Charlayne Hunter-Gault. She had flown from South Africa for the occasion, to witness what was for many the culmination of the long struggle for civil rights in the United States. In this compelling personal history, she uses the event to look back on her own involvement in the civil rights movement, as one of two black students who forced the University of Georgia to integrate, and to relate the pivotal events that swept the South as the movement gathered momentum through the early 1960s.

With poignant black-and-white photos, original articles from The New York Times, and a unique personal viewpoint, this is a moving tribute to the men and women on whose shoulders Obama stood.

Wisdom of Trees

Wisdom of Trees

Judge, Lita
$19.99

With lush illustrations, poems, and accessible scientific information, The Wisdom of Trees by Lita Judge is a fascinating exploration of the hidden communities trees create to strengthen themselves and others.

We clean the air and seed the clouds, we drench the thirsty land with rain. We are like wizards.

The story of a tree is a story of community, communication, and cooperation. Although trees may seem like silent, independent organisms, they form a network buzzing with life: they talk, share food, raise their young, and offer protection. Trees thrive on diversity, learn from their ancestors, and give back to their communities. Trees not only sustain life on our planet--they can also teach us important lessons about patience, survival, and teamwork.
