Shade may be critical through the summer for conifer regeneration survival on warm, dry sites. Shadow lengths vary by latitude, aspect, & slope; southerly aspects have shorter shadows than northerly aspects at the same time. Differently shaped trees also produce different shadow lengths. This guide provides silviculturists with a method for determining tree shadow lengths in a straight line from the tree's base to the shadow tip from southern Utah to northern Idaho for May 10 through Oct. 11 on different slopes, aspects, & for two tree shapes. Charts & tables.
The Deepening Shade is an elegant synthesis of the psychology of life-threatening illness. The book’s evocative power derives from the interweaving of clinical conceptualization with the words of patients and family members. Rather than focusing on death, Sourkes explores living with a life-threatening illness.
Stereotypes of the Native American in United States Literature and the Visual Arts, 1776-1894
Author: Klaus Lubbers
This volume examines the ways in which attempts to define and delimit American nationhood effected imaginative and documentary conceptualizations of the Native American population. Far-reaching in its scope, both in terms of the period covered - roughly the period from the Declaration of Independence to the closing of the frontier - and in terms of the variety and kinds of documents examined, this study calls attention to the cultural and generic restraints that prevented visual and literary artists, as well as statesmen and community leaders, from adopting any position toward Native Americans other than a prejudicial one.
Maple Shade's history spans more than three centuries, starting when John and Sarah Roberts arrived from Burlington, New Jersey, in 1682. The settlement became more permanent in 1794 when Main Street was constructed, allowing a connection to the King's Highway and to the Cooper River ferry. In 1811, property was set aside for the Chesterford School, also known as the "Little Red Schoolhouse." In 1867, the township gained an identity with a train station and a rail stop. Formerly known as Chester Township, the town was now called Maple Shade. Along with the railroad came various industries and businesses, several shops, a post office, and an active brick-making business. Maple Shade gradually changed from a rural community to a suburban town. Today many of these early settlers are still known through street names: Robert Stiles, Samuel Coles, Alexander Mecray, and the Rudderows were all early settlers of Maple Shade.
"A masterpiece, full of charm and humor." —Dr. Rebecca W. Dolan, Director, Friesner Herbarium, Butler University Whether it's urban, suburban, or rural, nearly every property has some shade, if only on the north side of the house. Countless more are "blessed" with giant trees planted decades ago that screen out the sunlight. Under such conditions, you may think that it's impossible to have an interesting garden without a lot of work. Not so if you are willing to learn about the plethora of easygoing horticultural gems that don't require full sun. Most gardeners think only of impatiens and hostas for their shady areas, but shade gardening can be far more interesting, and even exciting—and you need not work too hard at it if you incorporate some lesser-known but easy-to-grow plants into your landscape. Judiciously mixing the common plants with the more unusual ones can help the busy, tired, or lazy gardener create a special and unique retreat. Carolyn Harstad, author of the best-selling Go Native!, organizes this book around the principle that an interesting shade garden is well balanced and has a variety of plantings. Early chapters focus on designing the low-maintenance garden. Further chapters discuss small trees, shrubs, dwarf conifers, vines, ground covers, ferns, grasses, perennials, woodland wildflowers, spring bulbs, and annuals (yes, there are annuals that enjoy shade!). She discusses hundreds of shade-tolerant plants hardy in Zones 4-8, suggests how they may be used and combined, and recommends methods to reduce garden maintenance—a universal concern in this fast-paced world. With its informative text, accurate drawings, and colorful photographs, this book is a "must have" for gardeners across much of North America.
An illustrated horticultural reference focuses on plants for Southern gardens that thrive in conditions that can stymie even the most optimistic landscapers, and tailors choices to variances in light, moisture, and seasonal fluctuations. Simultaneous.
