In Cambria Harper has lots of opportunities to show of her new trick - swimming. She doesn't go in just for the heck of it, but she'll dive in after a stick or another dog. We knew she'd realize she loved swimming eventually!
Tomatoland by Barry Estabrook. Being keen on food policy, I was enthralled by this book. It tells of how those bright red (but flavorless) tomatoes get on our sandwiches and in our grocery stores year-round. I can give you a preview: Florida grows tomatoes in nutrient-free sand and enslaves migrant workers from Latin America to pick said tomatoes while exposing them to pesticides that make them sick! It's a little more uplifting in the end, but it definitely further encourages my organic and local habits.
