Summer Reading: Non-Fiction

Not like school, but gripping non-fiction. Reads like a novel. Offers a window to the world. Find out about the woman spawned the first viable stem cell line in The Short Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (Rebecca Skloot). Descend to the depths of the earth in Blind Descent (James Tabor).  Meet   charismatic Comanche chief Quanah Parker in Empire of the Summer Moon ( S. C. Gwynne).  Take a pilgrimage to India in Nine Lives (William Dalrymple,) or go back to the farm in Mennonite in a Black Dress (Rhoda Janzer).   Go behind the scenes  at the Zoo (Zoo Story by Thomas French) or a star restaurant (Medium Raw by Antony Bourdain).
