7. Cap Wigington: An Architectural Legacy in Ice and Stone by David Vassar Taylor and Paul Clifford Larson.

8. The Hearts of Horses by Molly Gloss. You guys, you have to read this. This is my first Molly Gloss book, though I've been hearing her name for several years and had the pleasure of workshopping with her a couple of years ago. And this book--I often see it said of books that the reader didn't want it to end, but that's rarely my experience; it was here. I have to believe that anyone would love this book, but in particular I would think that it would immediately become a favorite of any woman who loves or has loved horses. Even if you're not much into horses, though, the landscape and characters here are drawn with such intelligence, compassion, and humor that I can't imagine anyone not connecting with them, especially Martha Lessen, the tall, shy horsewoman/horse-whisperer at the center of it. Oh, I loved it.
