Hocking County is one of the natural jewels of Ohio, favored as it is with impressive geological and biological diversity, and within that setting occurs one of the most diverse and accessible populations of birds to be found in the state. The Birds of Hocking County, Ohio provides an overview of the natural environments of the county and reviews the history of bird studies there and changes that have occurred in the bird life as the environment of the region has changed. A summary chapter identifies and describes the prime birding sites within the county, most of which are accessible to the public. The culmination of the book lies in its exhaustively complete and current annotated list of the 266 bird species that have been recorded in the county. A separate checklist is provided at the end of the book for personal record keeping. This valuable contribution will be appreciated by a wide range of users, from the casual bird observer to the serious student of Ohio's ornithology. Bruce Peterjohn, author of The Birds of Ohio, has stated that The Birds of Hocking County, Ohio is "an authoritative reference for southeastern Ohio that adds considerable knowledge to an overlooked part of the state."

“The book promises to stoke the timeless war between those who write the tickets and the objects of their affections.” -Caryl Segalewitz, Dayton Daily News “Wolk is either a maverick hell-bent on improving the legal system, or he’s a brash upstart…either way, he’s a hero with me for championing the cause of motorists who are bullied into paying traffic tickets…Wolk’s observations and hypothetical courtroom cross-examinations are fascinating…Prosecutors and city officials can benefit from his exposure of weaknesses.” -Denise Smith Amos, Cincinnati Enquirer “Wolk rails, often humorously, against local government ‘abuse and misuse’ of traffic laws and doles out ways to combat traffic tickets.” -Donna Robb, Cleveland Plain Dealer “Wolk’s tome offers detailed, step-by-step instructions for fighting all kinds of misdemeanor traffic tickets.” -Bob Dyer, Akron Beacon Journall “Just like his current book, any future literary offerings will be in keeping with his philosophy—every citizen has a duty to protect the rights of the individual and to ensure that the government is doing its job.” -Carl Chancellor, Akron Beacon Journal “There are good people who become lawyers…Wolk is one.” -William Grim, Freelance A compact manual relaying a proven method for fighting tickets. Applicable to all states. Includes Pennsylvania turnpike tickets.

A small set of fossilized bones discovered almost thirty years ago led paleontologist Sankar Chatterjee on a lifelong quest to understand their place in our understanding of the history of life. They were clearly the bones of something unusual, a bird-like creature that lived long, long ago in the age of dinosaurs. He called it Protoavis, and the animal that owned these bones quickly became a contender for the title of "oldest known bird." In 1997, Chatterjee published his findings in the first edition of The Rise of Birds. Since then Chatterjee and his colleagues have searched the world for more transitional bird fossils. And they have found them. This second edition of The Rise of Birds brings together a treasure trove of fossils that tell us far more about the evolution of birds than we once dreamed possible. With no blind allegiance to what he once thought he knew, Chatterjee devours the new evidence and lays out the most compelling version of the birth and evolution of the avian form ever attempted. He takes us from Texas to Spain, China, Mongolia, Madagascar, Australia, Antarctica, and Argentina. He shows how, in the "Cretaceous Pompeii" of China, he was able to reconstruct the origin and evolution of flight of early birds from the feathered dinosaurs that lay among thousands of other amazing fossils. Chatterjee takes us to where long-hidden bird fossils dwell. His compelling, occasionally controversial, revelations—accompanied by spectacular illustrations—are a must-read for anyone with a serious interest in the evolution of "the feathered dinosaurs," from vertebrate paleontologists and ornithologists to naturalists and birders.
