OR ALL SEASONS
A ig Bend Journal
By Roland H. Wauer
Drawings by Nancy McGowan
As Chief Park Naturalist from 1966 to 1972 and frequent
visitor ever since, Wauer knows the Big Bend as few authors
do. His journal entries spanning thirty years provide not only
a composite portrait of a typical year but also a clear sense
of how the park's natural history has changed over three de-
cades. He spices his account with anecdotes, often humor-
ous, ranging from stumbling across a herd ofjavelinas to
being trailed by a mountain lion in the dark to discovering
new species of plants and animals.This beautifully illus-
trated book is the perfect companion for a visit to the park,
whether in person or by armchair.

Texas Land Ethics
By Pete A. Y. Gunter and Max Oelschlaeger
The authors of this thoughtful, practical book offer a new
vision for living on the land, a"land ethic"that respects the
stability, integrity,and beauty of the"land community."
Avoiding harsh rhetoric that seeks only to place blame and
foretell doom, they discuss how economic and environmen-
tal goals may be reconciled so that Texans can continue to
enjoy a reasonable prosperity while living in a land free of
pollutants and scars, where some wild lands still exist and
animals range freely.This is an ethic to take Texas into the
twenty-first century, in which the wise choices we make
now will create a stable and sustainable future.
