What's new on the Black Bear's bookshelf

I've been building my collection of books that I want/have/need. Check out the BLACK BEAR's bookshelf to find more cool stuff. Click any of the book covers below to find out more about that particular book.

Garbage Wars: The Struggle for Environmental Justice in Chicago by David Naguib Pellow
A study of the struggle for environmental equity, focusing on conflicts over solid waste and pollution in Chicago.

The Future of the Wild: Radical Conservation for a Crowded World by Jonathan S Adams
A new approach to conservation. The main strategy behind it involves using the latest in conservation science along with the desires of local communities to protect the places where people live and work. In this way, each small success moves conservationists closer toward creating huge protected landscapes large enough to support animals like bison and wolves. Only with freedom to roam through and between these lands, using wilderness corridors, can such large animals flourish.

Hiking Michigan by Mike Modrzynski
Lace up your boots and sample more than fifty of the finest trails in Michigan. From the wilderness areas of the Upper Peninsula - including Isle Royale National Park, the Porcupine Mountains, and Sylvania Recreation Area - to the High Country Pathway through Pigeon River State Forest in the Lower Peninsula, Michigan offers a full spectrum of hiking adventures. Wander the beaches of four of the five Great Lakes, traverse the rugged high ridges along the Greenstone Trail, or explore the vast forests of Sleeper State Park. Inside you'll find: up-to-date trail information; accurate directions to popular as well as less-traveled trails; difficulty ratings for each hike; detailed trail maps.
