Life on Surtsey: Iceland's Upstart Island

Life on Surtsey: Iceland's Upstart Island
Burns, Loree Griffin

"In this addition to the Scientists in the Field series, readers join scientists as they tackle something unusual in the world of ecosystems: colonization.

The Science of Poop and Farts: The Smelly Truth About Digestion

The Science of Poop and Farts: The Smelly Truth About Digestion
Woolf, Alex, 1964-

Everyone poops. It may seem pretty gross, but it's perfectly healthy and natural. Poop (also called feces or excrement) is the solid waste that's left after we've digested our food. It's the stuff our bodies can't use for energy or growth, and it passes out of us when we go to the toilet. So poop is really just the final product of our digestive system. In this gut-wrenching guide we will explore how we digest our food, and all the strange side effects of this complex and fascinating process--including burps and farts. We will look at what happens when things go wrong, and how this affects the color, smell, and texture of our poop. We will also find out how poop is not just a smelly waste product, but can actually be useful to us.

The People Shall Continue

The People Shall Continue
Ortiz, Simon J., 1941-

"The People Shall Continue was originally published in 1977. It is a story of Indigenous peoples of the Americas, specifically in the US, as they endeavor to live on lands they have known to be their traditional homelands from time immemorial. Even though the prairies, mountains, valleys, deserts, river bottomlands, forests, coastal regions, swamps and other wetlands across the nation are not as vast as they used to be, all of the land is still considered to be the homeland of the people"--Foreword.
