Marlo Morgan's "Mutant Message Down Under." It's wonderful because it allows a glimpse into the Australian aboriginal world uncorrupted by the unnatural trappings we humans have invented. ... A great book along the same lines is Arthur Versluis' "Sacred Earth: The Spiritual Landscape of North America."I'm also reading Robin Murphy's "Lotus Materia Medica."

There's hardly a square inch of the 1,900-acre Soldiers Delight Natural Environmental Area that Johnny Johnsson hasn't walked, mapped or studied.

Baltimore helped the avant-garde painter Max Weber forge a national reputation in 1915. Now, nearly 100 years later, this could be the city where the late artist begins his long-overdue comeback. It's not that critics and curators are unfamiliar with the Russian-born, Brooklyn-raised painter's work.

They all died the same way, by hanging.
