"Flirting is more serious than talking nonsense and not so serious as making love" was journalist Eliza Lynn Linton's take on relations between the sexes in 1883. Other reader-chosen nonfiction selections in volume 093 see women as witches (Salem Witchcraft), as cooks (Domestic French Cookery; Food in Little Italy), as medical pioneers (Cleora Augusta Seaman, M.D.), and as waffling adolescents (Sweet Seventeen). Political, religious, and cultural conflict are illustrated in questions regarding slavery in the Virginia colony, the Papal Bulls of 1493, the battle of Grampian Hills, a biography of Giordano Bruno, and a white soldier's impressions of a Zuni Indian dance. Natural history and science receive their due in Science the Endless Frontier, the Yellowstone Expedition of 1871, and Barrier Beaches of the Atlantic Coast. Rounding out the volume are a look at contemporary art (Artists Look at Roads), and Samuel Johnson's Wisdom at Proper Times is Well Forgotten. Summary by Sue Anderson.
