XTL: Extraterrestrial Life and How to Find It :: Simon Goodwin, John Gribbin

Beautiful photographic illustrations!

Are we alone in the Universe? The best scientists are searching hard for the answer--and may be just around the corner from finding it. Two top astronomers (and bestselling authors) take a cutting-edge look at how life itself develops, survives, evolves, becomes intelligent, and where it might exist in outer space. Illustrated with breathtaking photos and state-of-the-art graphics, this thrilling story reveals a newfound understanding of the conditions that fostered life on Earth, how stars and planets are formed, the specific qualities of the Sun and planets in our solar system, and the techniques required to observe phenomena outside of our system. The fascinating advances in technology and information revealed here could enable us to locate extraterrestrials within the next twenty years!

Basic Horsemanship (Revised) (Doubleday Equestrian Library) :: Gaydell M. Collier, Eleanor F. Prince

The first paperback edition of a popular standard guide to horsemanship, from first mount to competitive riding, plus all the key facts about horse care, feeding and grooming, English and Western tack, and more.

B & W photographs and line drawings throughout.

Dave Barry's History of the Millennium (So Far) :: Dave Barry

A brilliantly funny look at the tumultuous recent past from the Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist.
Remember when everything was going to go to hell when Y2K struck?
That didn't happen. Right?
But what did happen? To provide a little perspective on a really messed-up millennium (so far), the one and only Dave Barry slips into his historian's robe (it's plush terrycloth) and revisits the defining moments in our country's recent history--from the Bush years to the Bush years! As an added bonus, Barry quickly--we're busy here--tosses in the complete history of the last millennium, covering crucial turning points such as the invention of the pizza by Leonardo da Vinci and the computer by Charles Babbage (who died in 1871 still waiting to talk to tech support).
Fellow Americans, the time has come to bone up with Barry as he puts the hysterical in history.

And here's a beautiful art book for someone who loves animals, Japan, art, poetry, or all of these!

 

A furry, feathery, and scaly menagerie of creatures large and small captured in over forty-eight paintings and one hundred twenty haiku—with the delicacy, charm, and wisdom of the best of Japanese literature and art.
