    Easton Press makes beautiful leather-bound high-quality books - I own quite a few, some autographed by their authors, such as Vonnegut, Nixon, Woodward & Bernstein, and one Roger Bannister. But most/all of their books are copies of books already available in normally priced editions. Including the Smithsonian's World War II Map by Map, available new on Amazon for the low low price of $25.84.

      Now it sounds much more interesting!

      edit - I put it my Amazon cart to consider, found out it was 'free', due to previous purchases on my Amaz card, so I got it!

                      The findings could be used to support the push to set aside half of Earth for nature, its authors say.
                      I'm pretty sure we'll find a way to exploit/pollute/muck-up those places too.

                      • Interesting that the map shows the Amazon rainforest as a low human impact zone. I was under the impression man was cutting/burning the rainforest down. The text mentions ". . . since the forest is currently without extensive croplands or major infrastructure, much of the Amazon is ranked as “low impact” in the map."

                          Perhaps it's only shows the parts NOT being deforested as 'untouched'.

                              • I didn't even watch the video, I just thought the color graphic representation of the water temps in the Great Lakes was interesting.

                                A friend stayed on Isle Royale for a few nights one summer, said it was hell because there was a heat wave with 95F air temps and humidity, yet he couldn't go in the water of Lake Superior for more than a few seconds since the water temp was in the 50s.
