"Native Pacific Islander writer Craig Santos Perez has crafted a timely collection of eco-poetry comprised of free verse, prose, haiku, sonnets, satire, and a form he calls "recycling." Habitat Threshold begins with the birth and growth of the author's daughter and captures her childlike awe at the wondrous planet. As the book progresses, however, Perez confronts the impacts of environmental injustice, global capitalism, toxic waste, animal extinctions, water struggles, human violence, mass migration, and climate change. Throughout, Perez mourns lost habitats and species and faces his fears about the world his daughter will inherit. Yet this work does not end at the threshold of elegy; instead, the poet envisions a sustainable future in which our ethics are shaped by the indigenous belief that the earth is sacred and all beings are interconnected--a future in which we cultivate love and "carry each other towards the horizon of care.""--

is reworking of the river bed . The upper threshold assumes that ecological

Threshold: Pre-GED covers the same content areas as the GED tests, in an open, user-friendly format. This allows adult learners to concentrate on the content they need to achieve high GED scores. Threshold addresses the demand the GED makes for focused core instruction that sharpens students' skills in reading, writing, critical thinking, and problem solving. Throughout each text, questions in GED format call upon the content knowledge and reading strategies that adult learners gain by using Threshold. Biology, Earth Science, Chemistry and Physics are presented in meaningful and relevant context to the adult learner.
