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.

Penalosa, Enrique
Throughout the recorded history of Bogotį, from the earliest Spanish chronicles to present-day photographs, films and television programs, the Cerros Orientales or Eastern Ridges of the city have been an indelible feature of its landscape, culture and social life. But up to now the citizens of Bogotį have known little about their tutelary mountains and have rarely given them the value they deserve. For the Muisca indigenous society, the original inhabitants of the region, who regarded these ridges as a magical and holy place, the mountains were part of a living nature, superior to the human realm and the site for their most important shrines and ceremonial center.After the Spanish Conquest, the Eastern Ridges lost the sacred role they had had in the Pre-Columbian world. In response to the needs imposed by the development of a new city that was formed in the image of Western society, other cultural and religious symbols were placed on these mountains and the uncontrolled exploitation of their natural wealth began.As a result, their true value as an environmental reserve was ignored. For these reasons, there is an urgent need to examine the Cerros Orientales once more with the attitude of love and respect of their earliest inhabitants - the Native American dwellers of the Savannah of Bogotį, who were protected and inspired by them. 289pp.
