Nature

by Ralph Waldo Emerson

a beautiful, and highly readable philosophical exploration of nature and how (as he sees it) it influences man physically, aesthetically & spiritually. emerson's stately prose is steeped in the awe & wonder of the true romantic, but stands up very well in these far more jaded and sceptical times.

The Abenaki Indians

by Frederic Kidder

a fascinating account of the original homelands of the indigenous tribes of north america & how the tribes were forced into accepting the supremacy of the english crown.
the treaties themselves show how the tribes after years of deceit & conflict were conquered finally by legal contract.
