"Fine experience lies at one's own doorstep" writes Raymond S. Spears, suggesting that boating on the Mississippi River offers "taunts to daring spirits." Exploration of the natural world and the human psyche figure in many of the reader-chosen selections in vol. 094: Wasps, Seedling Fruits, The Sun's Motion, The Atomic Bomb, The Altruist in Politics, The Sexual Life of Our Time, Concerning Witchcraft, and The Making of an Aviator. Place and persons receive attention in General Hazard Stevens, James Fenimore Cooper, Will Rogers, Majorian, Racimer, Workaday London, and Palace of the Alhambra. The Story of Brick and The Old Clipper Ships highlight inventions which have endured and those which have faded away. Rounding out the collection is a timeless meditation: Christ Remembered at His Table. Summary by Sue Anderson
