Museum of Bone and Water by Nicole Brossard Summary

Nicole Brossard's sensual and provocative investigations of our bodies -- the physical and spiritual museums of who we are and what we desire -- pulse and surprise at every turn. These poems sculpt a fluid but tenacious space where fingers, thighs, lips, fists, cheeks mingle in the palm trees of Dublin and Key West, the heat of Palermo and Madrid, the eyes of Virginia Woolf and Jorge Luis de Borges, the throat of Lee Miller. With each dazzling turn and each crazy silence, Brossard speeds our breath and quickens our hearts, reminding us that poetry too is both a physical and spiritual reality.

Paris Quebec by Claudine Bertrand,Miles Lowry,Stephen Scobie,Marie Vautier Summary

Paris, the City of Light, inspires the entire world -- especially the poets of Quebec. In this anthology, superbly translated by Stephen Scobie and Marie Vautier, Quebecois poets explore the splendours, mysteries and secrets of Paris. This ancient centre of culture, the capital city of their ancestors, the settlers of New France, puts the poets in touch with the source of their vibrant art. Paris speaks to Quebec's greatest poets in their own language and they in turn celebrate this city of beauty and of art. Edited by Claudine Bertrand and illustrated with atmospheric black-and-white photography, this anthology makes a wonderful introduction to contemporary Quebecois poetry and an intriguing exploration of one of the world's favourite cities."

The Art and Archaeology of Florida's Wetlands by Barbara A. Purdy Summary

Waterlogged archaeological sites in Florida contain tools, art objects, dietary items, human skeletal remains, and glimpses of past environments that do not survive the ravages of time at typical terrestrial sites. Unfortunately, archaeological wet sites are invisible since their preservation depends upon their entombment in oxygen-free, organic deposits. As a result, they are often destroyed accidentally during draining, dredging, and development projects. These sites and the objects they contain are an important part of Florida's heritage. They provide an opportunity to learn how the state's earliest residents used available resources to make their lives more comfortable and how they expressed themselves artistically. Without the wood carvings from water-saturated sites, it would be easy to think of early Floridians as culturally impoverished because Florida does not have stone suitable for creating sculptures. This book compiles in one volume detailed accounts of such famous sites as Key Marco, Little Salt Spring, Windover, Ft. Center, and others. The book discusses wet site environments and explains the kinds of physical, chemical, and structural components required to ensure that the proper conditions for site formation are present and prevail through time. The book also talks about how to preserve artifacts that have been entombed in anaerobic deposits and the importance of classes of objects, such as wooden carvings, dietary items, human skeletal remains, to our better understanding of past cultures. Until now this information has been scattered in obscure documents and articles, thus diminishing its importance. Our ancestors may not have been Indians, but they contributed to the state's heritage for more than 10,000 years. Once disturbed by ambitious dredging and draining projects, their story is gone forever; it cannot be transplanted to another location.

Inert Gases in the Control of Museum Insect Pests by Charles Selwitz,Shin Maekawa Summary

A serious problem facing museum professionals is the protection of collections from damage due to insects. This book describes successful insect eradication procedures developed at the Getty Conservation Institute and elsewhere, whereby objects are held in an atmosphere of either nitrogen or argon containing less than 1000 ppm of oxygen—a process known as anoxia—or in an atmosphere of more than 60 percent carbon dioxide. Techniques, materials, and operating parameters are described in detail. The book also discusses adoption of this preservation technology, presenting the development of these methods and instructions for building and upgrading treatment systems, as well as recent case histories. The Research in Conservation reference series presents the findings of research conducted by the Getty Conservation Institute and its individual and institutional research partners, as well as state-of-the-art reviews of conservation literature. Each volume covers a topic of current interest to conservators and conservation scientists.

Last Water on the Devil's Highway by Bill Broyles,Gayle Harrison Hartmann,Thomas E. Sheridan,Gary Paul Nabhan,Mary Charlotte Thurtle Summary

The Devil’s Highway—El Camino del Diablo—crosses hundreds of miles and thousands of years of Arizona and Southwest history. This heritage trail follows a torturous route along the U.S. Mexico border through a lonely landscape of cactus, desert flats, drifting sand dunes, ancient lava flows, and searing summer heat. The most famous waterhole along the way is Tinajas Altas, or High Tanks, a series of natural rock basins that are among the few reliable sources of water in this notoriously parched region. Now an expert cast of authors describes, narrates, and explains the human and natural history of this special place in a thorough and readable account. Addressing the latest archaeological and historical findings, they reveal why Tinajas Altas was so important and how it related to other waterholes in the arid borderlands. Readers can feel like pioneers, following in the footsteps of early Native Americans, Spanish priests and soldiers, gold seekers and borderland explorers, tourists, and scholars. Combining authoritative writing with a rich array of more than 180 illustrations and maps as well as detailed appendixes providing up-to-date information on the wildlife and plants that live in the area, Last Water on the Devil’s Highway allows readers to uncover the secrets of this fascinating place, revealing why it still attracts intrepid tourists and campers today.

Mobility of light by Nicole Brossard,Louise Forsyth Summary

"On strands of light I am hanging poetry like garlands." These first words of poetry from Nicole Brossard anticipate the vast body of work she has published in the last four decades. The poems in Mobility of Lightwere chosen by Louise H. Forsyth to elicit a sense of these whirling garlands and convey the intense energy-physical, creative, spiritual, erotic, imaginative, playful, ethical, and political-that has carried Brossard to a uniquely significant vision of the human spirit. Poems are presented in French and English on facing pages, underscoring the density of meaning in each word and line and highlighting the unusual rhythms in Brossard's originals and the extraordinary sonorities with which they beat. Some of the translations in this volume have been previously published, while others are new. In her afterword, Brossard talks about travelling back in time to discover how our most vivid sensations, emotions, and thoughts are nourished and transformed by our enigmatic relation to language.
