EACH year in August we celebrate harvest, collecting stories from the past year that have particularly touched us, made us laugh—or made us think twice. As a result, we think they deserve a second look.  Even where water is scarce, the fields give their harvest—as if that was their only reason to be. So too, when given a chance, humankind yearns to share its best. Our InterestEng. writers prove that year after year. We’re very grateful to them.  —Mrs.Chips
