Respond by August 14 to receive the August selection, Heaven's Breath: A Natural History of the Wind by Lyall Watson. 

Watson delivers an exhaustive examination of the wind and manages to render it both compulsively readable and completely fun. His work is the best kind of science writing — detailed and explorative without sacrificing any sense of awe or wonder. He plumbs the outer limits of his subject and unearths fact after delightful fact. 

“Collectors of curious bits of information and odd statistics will find Heaven’s Breath a gold mine.... Mr. Watson discusses the wind’s role in geology, plant and animal evolution, cultural history, trade, health, mythology, art, literature and language.” —The New York Times
