Shaw, Robert; Lindsey, Jason
Top corner of front and rear board and D/J bumped. When most people think of the Chicago metropolitan area they usually don't envision captivating natural beauty, but within a 55-mile radius of the city there are no less than five distinctive ecosystems, including tall-grass prairies, oak savannas, forests, lakeshores, and wetlands. Several of the natural communities preserved here are among the rarest in the world, including 181 species listed as endangered or threatened. These spectacular colour photographs uncover Chicago's natural wonders, including vistas of shooting stars at Chiwaukee Prairie, blazing star and goldenrod at Gensburg-Markham Prairie, a luscious green canyon at Camp Sagawau, a pair of sandhill cranes feeding along the banks of the Fox River, a carpet of trilliums in Messenger Woods, fog rising over the Volo bog, and a fox family venturing out at dawn. 127pp.

Gleit, Heidi
This book introduces this fascinating city and its colourful mosaic of inhabitants to readers. A beautifully designed, lavishly illustrated album featuring over 140 full-colour images, this large-format book is a moving journey into the heart of the Israeli capital and the daily life and festivals of its people and pilgrims. Marcelo Bendahan's photographs bring the awesome beauty of the city to life and offer revealing glimpses into various religions and cultures that thrive in Jerusalem. Many of the photographs were ta-ken with a panoramic camera that allowed Bendahan to capture the vigour and diversity of Jerusalem's streets and alleys. The colours are uncommonly rich. The pho-tographs are accompanied by an insightful, informa-tive, and entertaining text that will engage the reader. The book begins by focusing on the religious sites that have attracted pilgrims for centuries and the modern city that has developed around them. The album then introduces readers to the city's diverse population, from dancers and clowns to merchants and models, from boys studying the holy scriptures and arti-sans at work to children at play and pilgrims on parade. 176pp.
