Wild And Free
Imagine a world without tigers roaring and prowling in the dead of night, a world without rhinos gallumphing along the dusty African plains or a world without whales singing their song in the oceans. Wild and Free is all about animals in danger - animals that are hunted or poisoned or chased from their homes. Discover how creatures live wild and free, and then imagine a world without wildlife.The Wonderwise series presents facts in a way that will inspire young children's imaginations about the world around them.
Fall comes to Pepin County with a vengeance as Deputy Sheriff Claire Watkins confronts a new evil festering beneath the placid surface of the Wisconsin farm community. A refugee from the Twin Cities, Claire has slowly adapted to small-town life-especially now that she loves and lives with Rich Haggard. But in this rural area, other folks are dangerously restless.
One is Daniel Reiner, a wealthy part-time resident who's been buying up too much land-at least as far as the locals are concerned. Another is gambling addict and aging gold digger Patty Jo Tilde, who recently married a widower twenty years her senior. Patty is itching to inherit her husband's property, sell it to Reiner, and leave the countryside behind. The only stumbling block-her husband must die.
Add to the mix a suspicious goat-herding daughter-in-law and a wounded elk, and things quickly reach a boiling point. As Claire Watkins delves deeper into the mystery, she believes she's uncovered a deadly history of lies, deceit, arson, and poison. Her problem is to prove it-and then she learns what happened to Patty Jo's last husband. . . .
Evoking the strong community values and the natural beauty of the Mississippi River Valley, this new Claire Watkins novel is Logue's most exciting yet. Poison Heart is a riveting tale of those who live off the land-and those who end up six feet under it.

No Such Thing As A Free Gift
Philanthro-capitalism: Is it always a good thing when the super rich give their money away?
The charitable sector is one of the fastest-growing industries in the global economy. Nearly half of the more than 85,000 private foundations in the United States have come into being since the year 2000. Just under 5,000 more were established in 2011 alone. This deluge of philanthropy has helped create a world where billionaires wield more power over education policy, global agriculture, and global health than ever before.
In No Such Thing as a Free Gift, author and academic Linsey McGoey puts this new golden age of philanthropy under the microscope-paying particular attention to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. As large charitable organizations replace governments as the providers of social welfare, their largesse becomes suspect. The businesses fronting the money often create the very economic instability and inequality the foundations are purported to solve.
We are entering an age when the ideals of social justice are dependent on the strained rectitude and questionable generosity of the mega-rich.
