The things you find by the side of the road

In my neighborhood people frequently leave boxes of stuff they don’t want out on the sidewalk for any passerby to take, often including books. This morning I passed by such a box and snatched up what look like three pretty good finds: Women, Earth, and Creator Spirit by Elizabeth Johnson; The Mismeasure of Man by Stephen Jay Gould; and A Whale for the Killing by Canadian naturalist and activist Farley Mowat. (I knew nothing about Mowat prior to today; I grabbed the book based solely on the cover and description.)
