The Yosemite

by John Muir

In this book, John Muir describes the Yosemite valley's geography and the various types of trees, flowers, birds, and other animals that can be found there. Though the book occasionally gets a little repetitive as each variety of flora is catalogued, the writing is very poetic and makes up for this to a large extent. It may be more enjoyable for someone who has once visited Yosemite park, and any frequent visitor should definitely read it.

The War in the Air

by H.G. Wells

An enjoyable fictional account of a young Englishman's adventure. Written before World War I, this book speculates what the next war would be like when Zepplins ruled the skies. It is interesting today as a story of an alternate history.

The Diary of a U-boat Commander

by Stephen King-Hall

This book is the story of a German navy officer during World War I. Though presented as being taken from a real diary, one gets the impression that this is a fictional story. Nevertheless, it is a fascinating book with interesting details of WWI, and U-boat operations in particular, mixed with a small romance.
