Dust jacket is in Near Fine condition - light shelf wear; not price-clipped. From the publisher: "This winsome and humorous natural history narrative describes the author’s evolution from a hapless flatlander aching to become a mountain man into an accomplished outdoor writer. Tougias’ journey begins when he buys a remote mountain-top cabin in the hopes of becoming a real 'mountain man,' and gets much more than he bargained for. Misadventure follows calamity in his encounters with wildlife, the locals, and nature. In There’s a Porcupine in My Outhouse, Tougias reveals his deepening respect for and connection to the natural world and how this transforms his ideas on all aspects of life. As his love of the outdoors grows, so does his feeling of responsibility and stewardship toward the environment. A funny, honest, and personal account, this is the perfect book for anyone who loves the outdoors and loves to laugh." Winner of the 2003 IPPY Award in the environment/ecology/nature category.

2 This is Our World Sears, Paul B.

University of Oklahoma Press, Norman, 1937.

Sears Nov.1937". Stated 1st edition. Book is in Very Good+ condition: bumped corners; spine slightly cocked; tanning from age; binding is tight and pages are clean. Dust jacket is in Fair condition: tears and large chips missing on edges and folds; not price-clipped. From the dust jacket: "No book quite like this one has ever been written before. It introduces a majestic conception of life on this planet which must have a profound effect on our social,economic, and political thinking. Here, the idea of the culture pattern, a force of vast yet hitherto unseen operation, is applied to the study of man, living, developing, struggling toward a condition of happiness in the world which he knows. The culture pattern is the complex of natural and social forces which makes man what he is....For man is in and not above the vast symphony of nature of which he is a part. Let him disregard the implication of this in agricultture, and he will reap flood, soil erosion, and dust storms. If he take up trees without forethought enough to replant, his children will go without wood. The thougtless exploitation of oil reserves must have its inevitable consequence in the disappearance of one of our greatest natural resources....No facet of our modern life is omitted from this revolutionary book. The implications of his theme for politics, economic activity, and social stratification reveal the completeness with which the author has applied himself to a brilliant and unique approach to living."
