Pennsylvania Avenue: Profiles in Backroom Power: Making Washington Work Again
Gerald F. Seib
Random House Trade Paperbacks
"Throw the Bastards Out...".
There's hope yet... And this reasonable, well-written book gives it to us...and its nice and refreshing to read a book about politics and Washington without people shouting or belittling one another. (People up there need to do what our founding fathers did. Argue all day, argue like hell, then go down to the City Tavern, have a beer/ale, solve the problem, agree, come back and vote on ...
Field Guide to the Wild Mushrooms of Pennsylvania And the Mid-atlantic (Keystone Book)
Pennsylvania State Univ Pr, 2006
I was able to meet the author of this book. I found both the book and the author very helpful. Bill has been hunting mushrooms all his life, and actually Penn State Press came to him to write this book and with good reason. The book has great photos and useful descriptions that are useful for the novice mushroom hunters, but plenty helpful for the experinced too. The author also give mushroom ...
Weird Pennsylvania: Your Travel Guide to Pennsylvania's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets
Weird Pennsylvania -- Book Review
An interesting book for anyone who has ever lived in Pennsylvania for any length of time. One thing I did find disappointing, though, was the fact that most of the oddities, landmarks, and stories featured in this book were found in the Western half of the state, and I'm originally from Northeastern Pennsylvania, so most of the stories were lost on me! Nonetheless, an interesting book for ...

National Geographic Field Guide to Birds: Pennsylvania
The pictures are wonderful! I have a bird feeder outside my window and have seen many birds that I didn't recognize. The pictures are perfect! I now know what type they are. Other bird books have either drawings or the pictures aren't very clear, or show a terrible likeness...with these pictures I know exactly what I'm looking at! And the information about them is very interesting.

Friedrich Nietzsche Bill, bill, credit card application, invitation to my class reunion at Miskatonic University. Has it really been twenty years?

Paddling Pennsylvania: Kayaking and Canoeing the Keystone State's Rivers and Lakes
Pick up your paddle and go!
I now understand why it has taken so long for a book on this subject to be published; it is simply a monumental undertaking, and Mr. Mitchell is to be congratulated for his effort. As he mentions in his introduction, PA has 'more waterway miles than any state except Alaska'. The real challenge in writing this book was deciding where to draw the line in the scope of what it would cover, and do it ...

The Plants of Pennsylvania: An Illustrated Manual
Ann Fowler Rhoads
Timothy A. Block
University of Pennsylvania Press
Plants of Pennsylvania is an exhaustive taxonomy of the fauna of the keystone state. Both native and introduced species are included. It is not light reading, but as a reference it is excellent. The cover artwork is not representative of the text, which contains only line drawings of good quality. The book is well indexed, by both scientific and common names, and probably is the best entrance ...
