Containing thousands of entries of both vernacular and scientific names of Great Plains plants, the literature that informs this exhaustive listing spans nearly 300 years. Author Elaine Nowick has drawn from sources as diverse as Linnaeus, Lewis and Clark, and local university extension publications to compile the gamut of practical, and often fanciful, common plant names used over the years. Each common name is accompanied by a definitive scientific name with references and authority information. Interspersed with scientifically-correct botanical line drawings, the entries are written in standard ICBN format, making this a useful volume for scholars as well as lay enthusiasts alike. Volume 2 indexes the scientific names of those species, followed by listings of all the common names applied to them. Both volumes refer the common and scientific names back to a list of 190 pertinent authoritative sources.

Hurt and Pain: Literature and the Suffering Body examines the strategies authors have used to portray bodies in pain, drawing on a diverse range of literary texts from the seventeenth century to the present day. Susannah B. Mintz provides readings of canonical writers including John Donne, Emily Dickinson, and Samuel Beckett, alongside contemporary writers such as Ana Castillo and Margaret Edson, focusing on how pain is shaped according to the conventions-and also experiments-of genre: poetry, memoir, drama, and fiction. With insights from disability theory and recent studies of the language of pain, Mintz delivers an important corrective to our most basic fears of physical suffering, revealing through literature that pain can be a source of connection, compassion, artistry, and knowledge. Not only an important investigation of authors' formal and rhetorical choices, Hurt and Pain reveals how capturing pain in literature can become a fundamental component of crafting human experience.

Foreword: Floyd Swink is the Senior Taxonomist at the Morton Arboretum, where he has served as the authority on our local flora and has published several editions of the Flora of the Chicago Region--the first edition in 1969, the second in 1974, followed by a revised and expanded edition with keys in 1979. The revised edition was co-authored by Floyd Seink and Gerould Wilhelm, also of the Morton Arboretum. Floyd Swink has been a student of the flora of the Chicago region for over 49 years. While studying and collecting plants in the field, he quickly became interested in their habitats, their associates, and their interrelationships with animals. Thus, over the years he has become a mine of information about these living organisms as they occur together under the varied stresses of nature and man, particularly urban man and his forces of land development. After his monumental "plants of the Chicago Region", he responded to numerous requests for a more widely useful set of "keys" to vascular plants based on their common field traits. With great enthusiasm he has produced a set of practical keys to the major vascular flora from Maine through Minnesota south through Missouri east through Virginia and back through Maine. The keys will include about 90% of the flora, but will not incllude plants unlikely to be seen by the typical student of nature study. It will be a handy tool for all, but primarily for the non-professional student of natural history. This is a field guide, handy to carry and quick for reference. Its most important feature is that the keys were constructed from field data and tested in the field, which results in a very practical, easy-to-use guide. This "tool of the trade" is what we might expect from an outstanding life-long naturalist of Floyd Swink's caliber.--Marion T. Hall--Director-The Morton Arboretum.
