With the death of her father and loss of income from his investments, Ada can no longer remain a QPB science encyclopedia book Charleston lady but must eke out a living from her father's farm in the Cold Mountain community, where she is an outsider. Such a tome, Du Bois hoped, would, like Diderot's Encyclop die, serve as a springboard for future scholarship and a bulwark against racist misconceptions. Those who shop for the label "organic," for example, might not be helping the world as much as they think, and may in fact be doing no more than responding to a carefully crafted marketing message. The main portion of the lesson provides simple explanations of concepts based upon the photos or illustrations. For those who want to read their bibles but don't know where to start, I would recommend a free booklet that you can pick up in most churchs called Our Daily Bread.
