North and South, by Elizabeth Gaskell (March 7, 2013) Nothing to do with the American civil war, by the way. This is an English novel originally written for Charles Dickens' magazine, "Household Words." It has something of Dickens' social conscious but a love story reminiscent of "Pride and Prejudice."
The Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a bird of prey that breeds throughout most of North America, from western Alaska and northern Canada to as far south as Panama and the West Indies, and is one of the most common hawks in North America. (Photo Dave Van de Laar)
