Howells, William
Three individuals left footprints in East Africa 3.7 million years ago. Walking upright on human feet, they had crossed a threshold in the long path of their evolution from vertebrates, mammals and primates to enter and dominate a new world. They were not alone. Others, related and descended in ways not entirely clear, spread out, flourished and disappeared; some became the people of today. Although we know a great deal of the story and new information is arriving ever more rapidly, there is still more to be learned about where, when and how our ancestors became us. We do know that we arrived not because we were inevitable, but by luck and happenstance along the way. And we know there were other kinds of humans who co-existed with each other and who might be here today but are not. Now updated and revised to reflect the latest findings and their implications, renowned anthropologist, author, and educator, William Howells draws together here the latest from all today's sciences to tell the fascinating stories of our evolution. 266pp.

Walker, David P. Staff Sergeant
This book tells a one-of-a-kind story of resilience and determination in the Vietnam War. It is written in a no-holds-barred, from-the-gut style. In January 1968, barely a month after arriving in Vietnam as part of an elite long range patrol (LRP) team, Dave Walker received a debilitating shrapnel wound to his eye. Medically discharged and sent home, Walker - now missing an eye - manoeuvred his way back into the army and back to Vietnam in 1970. Battle-hardened, aggressive, and courageous, he served another eighteen months with the best of the best, conducting patrols and special operations in the Central Highlands. 217pp. N.B. Top right corner of front cover slightly creased.

Korom Jr., Joseph J.
The skyscraper is an American invention that has captured the public's imagination for over a century. The tall building is wholly manmade and borne in the minds of those with both slide rules and computers. This is the story of the skyscraper's rise and the recognition of those individuals who contributed to its development. This volume is unique; its approach, information, and images are fresh and telling. The text examines America's first tall buildings - the result of twelve years of in-depth research by an accomplished and published architect and architectural historian.Over 300 compelling photographs, charts, and notes make this the ultimate tool of reference for this subject. Biographies woven throughout with period norms, politics and lifestyles help to place featured skyscrapers in context. Quite simply, there is no book like this. The text, carefully and insightfully written, is clear, concise, and easily digestible, the text being the product of well-documented original research written in an informative tone. "The American Skyscraper 1850-1940: A Celebration of Height" is a richly documented journey of a fascinating topic, and it promises to be a superb addition to libraries, schools of architecture, students of architecture, and lovers of art. 540pp.
