Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
This book, profusely illustrated with photographs, is divided into broad sections devoted to understanding the types of regions, the peoples of these regions, uses and abuses of and threats to these regions, and their future. Maps and glossaries offer additional information to the reader. It provides insights into the special needs, and the riches, of the region of focus. The cultural, social, and economic variations among the peoples and places within each climatic zone are also considered and explored. A fine addition to a reference shelf, and to the resource racks of a teacher or librarian.
School Library Journal
Deputy Sheriff Jon Sutherland reunites with his high school sweetheart when he responds to a silent alarm she sets off while house sitting. This chance meeting sends the sheriff and Zoe Westmoreland on a roller coaster run for their lives.

Burglars escaping from her parents' home, send her sprawling. Twice. Then she finds the gardener floating face down in the family pool and interrupts a burglary-in-progress next door. When the gardener's death is ruled a homicide Jon moves in to keep Zoe safe. Not all that easy.

Two men try to force their vehicles off the road, and the one time Jon leaves Zoe alone those really bad guys show up again. Thanks to Zoe's quick thinking and resourcefulness, the crooks get a free ride to the hospital and she winds up in Jon's arms for keeps.
