When Jimmy McMullen, a fireman with the NYFD, is killed in the line of duty, his wife, Jackie, and ten-year-old son, Charlie, are devastated. Charlie idolized his dad, and now the outgoing, curious boy has become quiet and reserved. Trusting in the healing power of family, Jackie decides to return to her childhood home on Sullivans Island. Crossing the bridge from the mainland, Jackie and Charlie enter a world full of wonder and magic--lush green and chocolate grasslands and dazzling red, orange, and magenta evening skies; the heady pungency of Lowcountry Pluff mud and fresh seafood on the grill; bare toes snuggled in warm sand and palmetto fronds swaying in gentle ocean winds.

The poems in Gina Ferrara's AMBER PORCH LIGHT Light occupy equal spheres of beauty and danger. Each holds its share of compressed energy, woven with images and lyricism, examining both the ordinary and the extraordinary, revealing what is possible when luminosity arrives in bursts. "AMBER PORCH LIGHT is a masterful balancing act. Here is a book of poems filled with unguent in the form of oranges and kiwis, papayas and gingers, lighthouses and the lumpy white meat of crabs, all counter-weighted with death by drowning and death marches, house-eating termites and threatened barrier islands, black rain and oil-soaked birds. In this collection Gina Ferrara has all the instincts of an Emily Dickinson and a Wallace Stevens. Her deft harnessing of the release rendered by the yoking of death and beauty make the poems in AMBER PORCH LIGHT read like illuminated testimony."- Darrell Bourque "Everything in these poems is aglow: not only the amber porch light, but comets, 'tarnished moonlight, ' 'milky morning light, ' meteor showers, Orion's belt, 'mint blue runway lights, ' fluorescent hospital lights, kerosene lanterns, citronella candles, white star jasmine, polished brass, and lighthouse beams. Each poem is a small and luminous feast of sensory detail. What really shines through the collection, though, is the poet's love of people and place-that place being her native New Orleans."-Julie Kane

"In the poem 'Nuclear', after stating '... Nothing is ever obvious or contained', Ivy Ireland asks, 'How can I write / a lyric poem about the micro-needle in the gargantuan multiverse?' Yet, in a book replete with angels, devils, evolutionary theory, astro-physics, mythology, magpie song, winter flowers, ghost gums, strangler figs, human love and human fear, this is what she does. Never obvious or contained, Porch Light is its own multi-verse of ideas, speculations and puzzlements. It swings from abstract terminology to idiomatic vigour, from doubt to joy, from mind to body. This is exciting writing, exciting reading."-Brook Emery

It is a glimpse into the lives of Jack and his family, past and present-day. Jack was born in the Appalachian Mountains of East Tennessee during the worst of the Great Depression. Times were tough, food was scarce, and clothing inadequate. Jack sometimes only had one shirt to wear, but his mother washed it every day. The stories in this book traverse this family's journey; from childhood to the legacy they leave behind.

While certain ecological problems associated with artificial night lighting are widely known-for instance, the disorientation of sea turtle hatchlings by beachfront lighting-the vast range of influences on all types of animals and plants is only beginning to be recognized. From nest choice and breeding success of birds to behavioral and physiological changes in salamanders, many organisms are seriously affected by human alterations in natural patterns of light and dark. Ecological Consequences of Artificial Night Lighting is the first book to consider the environmental effects of the intentional illumination of the night. It brings together leading scientists from around the world to review the state of knowledge on the subject and to describe specific effects that have been observed across a full range of taxonomic groups, including mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, fishes, invertebrates, and plants. Ecological Consequences of Artificial Night Lighting provides a scientific basis to begin addressing the challenge of conserving the nighttime environment. It cogently demonstrates the vital importance of this until-now neglected topic and is an essential new work for conservation planners, researchers, and anyone concerned with human impacts on the natural world.
