Ten Tea Parties: Patriotic Protests That History F&hellip by Joseph Cummins
4.0 out of 5 stars A Quick Read, 5 Mar 2012
The author has written short concise chapters in which he summarizes some of the political and sometimes violent protest against taxes that took place before the American Revolution. The colonist did not like being taxed with out being represented or the monopoly of the East Indianian Tea Company. The author does not write about these protest in a vacuum; he gives the reader an introduction of the politics and economics of the period.

Especially after incurring the cost of the Seven Years' War… Read more

The Dolphin in the Mirror: Exploring Dolphin Minds&hellip by Diana Reiss

This book starts off with a prologue that has nothing too do with dolphins but is an interesting read. Dr. Reiss has shared what she recalls as her part in the rescue of the humpback whale Humphrey back in 1985. Though a compelling read it seems she has given herself a more prominent role than I have read about from other accounts of the rescue. Regardless of what transpired with those involved in the rescue it shows that she was considered an expert in her field and it must not have hurt that she was available and in the vicinity.

The body of the book then starts in earnest and she take us back another ten years too relate how she left her original field of study and work too… Read more
