    In Class Not Dismissed, award-winning profes-sor Anthony Aveni tells the personal story of his six decades in college classrooms and some of the 10,000 students who have filled them. Through anecdotes of his own triumphs and tribulationssome amusing, others heartrendingAveni reveals his teaching story and thoughts on the future of higher education.

    Although in recent years the lecture has come under fire as a pedagogical method, Aveni ardently defends lecturing to students. He shares his secrets on crafting an engaging lecture and creating pro-ductive diologue in class discussions. He lays out his rules on classroom discipline and tells how he promotes the lost art of listening. He is a passion-ate proponent of the liberal arts and core course requirements as well as a believer in sound teaching promoted by active scholarship.

    Aveni is known to his students as a consum-mate storyteller. In Class Not Dismissed he shares real stories about everyday college life that shed light on serious educational issues. The result is a humorous, reflective, inviting, and powerful inquiry into higher education that will be of interest to anyone invested in the current and future state of college and university education.

    The American mountain goat is one of the most elusive and least familiar species of hoofed mam-mals in North America. Confined to the remote and rugged mountains of the western United States and Canada, these extraordinary mountaineers are seldom seen or encountered, even by those who patiently study them. Life on the Rocks offers an inti-mate portrayal of this remarkable animal through the eyes and lens of field biologist and photogra-pher Bruce Smith.

    Color photographs and accounts of Smith's personal experiences living in Montana's Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area accompany descriptions of the American mountain goat's natural history. Smith explores their treacherous habitat, which spans the perilous cliffs and crags of the Rocky, Cascade, and Coast mountain ranges. The physical and behavioral adaptations of these alpine athletes enable them to survive a host of dangers, includ-ing six-month-long winters, scarce food sources, thunderous avalanches, social strife, and predators like wolves, bears, lions, wolverines, and eagles. Smith also details the challenges these animals face as their territory is threatened by expanding motor-ized access, industrial activities, and a warming climate.

    Life on the Rocks showcases the elegance and charm of this little-known creature, thriving in some of North America's harshest wilderness. Smith's volume will appeal to wildlife enthusiasts, wildland travelers, and conservationists interested in the future of the American mountain goat.

    Life on the Rocks expertly weaves together the ecology and magic of North America's most unique mountain dweller. With prose as vivid and inspiring as the dramatic photos of mountain goats in their stark, tilted world, Bruce Smith shares his love and knowledge of an animal few will ever see in the wild.

    In Wyoming Revisited, Michael A. Amundson uses the power of rephotography to show how land-scapes across the state have endured over the last century. Three sets of photographsthe origi-nal black-and-white photographs taken by famed Wyoming photographer Joseph E. Stimson more than a century ago, repeat black-and-white images taken by Amundson in the 1980s, and a third view taken by the author in 20072008are accompanied by captions explaining the history and importance of each site as well as information on the process of repeat photographic fieldwork.

    The 117 locations feature street views of Wyoming towns and cities, as well as views from the state's famous natural landmarks like Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Devil's Tower National Monument, Hot Springs State Park, and Big Horn and Shoshone National Forests. In addition, Amundson provides six in-depth essays that explore the life of Joseph E. Stimson, the rephotographic process and how it has evolved, and how repeat photography can be used to understand history, landscape, historic preserva-tion, and globalization.

    Wyoming Revisited highlights the historic evo-lution of the American West over the past cen-tury and showcases the significant changes that have occurred over the past twenty-five years. This book will appeal to photographers, histori-ans of the American West, and anyone interested in Wyoming's history or landscape.

    Selected from the country's leading literary jour-nals and publicationsCrazyhorse, Colorado Review, The Nervous Breakdown, Creative Nonfiction, Georgia Review, Gulf Coast, The Missouri Review, The Normal School, and othersMan in the Moon brings together essays in which sons, daughters, and fathers explore the elusive nature of this intimate relation-ship and find unique ways to frame and under-stand it: through astronomy, arachnology, storytell-ing, map-reading, television, puzzles, DNA, and so on. In the collection's title essay, Bill Capossere considers the inextricable link between his love of astronomy and memories of his father: The man in the moon is no stranger to me, he writes. I have seen his face before, and it is my father's, and his father's, and my own. Other essays include Dinty Moore's Son of Mr. Green Jeans: A Meditation on Missing Fathers, in whi
