Jonathan Safran Foer meets Jeffrey Moussaieff Mason in a poignant, provocative memoir of survival, compassion, and awakening to the reality of our food system. Jenny Brown was just ten years old when she lost a leg to bone cancer. Throughout the ordeal, her constant companion was a cat named Boogie. Years later, she would make the connection between her feline friend and the farm animals she ate, acknowledging that most of America’s domesticated animals live on industrialized farms, and are viewed as mere production units. Raised in a conservative Southern Baptist family in Kentucky, Brown had been taught to avoid asking questions. But she found her calling and the courage to speak out. She left a flourishing career as a film and television producer after going undercover and exposing horrific animal abuse in Texas stockyards. Bringing to life this exhilarating transformation, The Lucky Ones introduces readers to Brown’s crowning achievement, the renowned Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary she established with her husband in 2004. With a cast of unforgettable survivors, including a fugitive slaughterhouse cow named Kayli; Albie, the three-legged goat; and Quincy, an Easter duckling found abandoned in New York City, The Lucky Ones reveals shocking statistics about the prevalence of animal abuse throughout America’s agribusinesses. Blending wry humor with unflinching honesty, Brown brings a compelling new voice to the healthy-living movement—and to the vulnerable, voiceless creatures among us.

Whether you are a graduate teaching assistant or the full instructor of a course, Teaching College Geography provides a starting point for becoming an effective geography teacher from the very first day of class. Divided in two parts, the first set of chapters in Teaching College Geography address "nuts-and-bolts" issues of teaching in the context of new technologies, student demographics, and institutional expectations that are the hallmarks of higher education in the twenty-first century. In the second part, chapters explore other important issues: effective teaching in the field; supporting critical thinking with GIS and mapping technologies; engaging learners in large geography classes; and promoting awareness of international perspectives and geographic issues. Teaching College Geography is based on the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), a broad-based, international movement to create more effective linkages between teaching and research in all disciplines. SoTL encourages all academics to become critically reflective teachers who constantly consider the effectiveness of their practices, keep abreast of research on teaching and learning, and contribute to the process of educational improvement by sharing innovations with peers and students. The book's chapters include activities that can be completed in workshops, seminars, and informal gatherings of graduate students and faculty. Visitors to the book's companion website can find additional activities, participate in discussion forums, and share their own resources and tips with others.
