Let’s Be Reasonable
By Joel Sartore
Hardcover, 152 pages ($21.95)

For this collection of essays and images, photojournalist Sartore drew on various subjects encountered in his travels on assignment for CBS Sunday Morning and National Geographic magazine. By turns quirky, candid, whimsical and moving, they cover a wide range of topics, including endangered species, the power of laughter, state-fair food, mud, money, conspicuous consumption, and his own life and family at home in Nebraska. They’re all wonderful, but his heartfelt meditation on his wife’s battle with cancer packs an emotional punch that lingers long after you’ve turned the last page.
