Sand dunes and the Dust Bowl, shipwrecks and wind-riding spiders, weather forecasting, wind power, windmills, and wars; on page after page of his brisk and fascinating book, Bill Streever reveals wind's real nature--and its history-shaping force. Seeking a deep immersion in his subject, Streever will go to any extreme. So, after a three-day course, this novice sailor set out on a vintage fifty-year-old sailboat named after Don Quixote's horse, and sailed east from Texas to Guatemala over 43 days and 1000 miles. How better to explore and experience the winds that built empires, the storms that wrecked them, and the surprising history and science of moving air? From history's great violent storms to the impacts of weather on life and business, from wind's energy to its power to give and destroy life, this is a thrilling read.--Adapted from dust jacket.

"In the updated second edition of Whipping Girl, Julia Serano, a transsexual woman whose supremely intelligent writing reflects her diverse background as a lesbian transgender activist and professional biologist, shares her powerful experiences and observations -- both pre- and post-transition -- to reveal the ways in which fear, suspicion, and dismissiveness toward femininity shape our societal attitudes toward trans women, as well as gender and sexuality as a whole. Serano's well-honed arguments stem from her ability to bridge the gap between the often-disparate biological and social perspectives on gender. In this provocative manifesto, she exposes how deep-rooted the cultural belief is that femininity is frivolous, weak, and passive, and how this "feminine" weakness exists only to attract and appease male desire. In addition to debunking popular misconceptions about transsexuality, Serano makes the case that today's feminists and transgender activists must work to embrace and empower femininity -- in all of its wondrous forms."--provided by
