Grandma Moses is among the most celebrated twentieth century painters of
the United States, yet she had barely started painting before she was in her late
seventies. As she once said of herself “I would never sit back in a rocking chair,
waiting for someone to help me.” No one could have had a more productive old
She was born Anna Mary Roberson on a farm in New York State, one of five
boys and five girls. (“We came in bunches, like radishes.”) At twelve she left
home and was in domestic service until at twenty-seven, she married Thomas
Moses, first in Virginia and then in New York State, at Eagle Bridge .She had ten
children, of whom five survived; her husband died in 1927.
Grandma Moses painted a little as a child and made embroidery（刺绣）
pictures as a hobby, but only switched to oils in old age because her hands had
become too stiff（僵硬的） to sew and she wanted to keep busy and pass the time. Her pictures were first sold at the local drugstore（杂货店） and at a fair（展览
会）, and were soon spotted by a dealer who bought everything she painted. Three
of the pictures were exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art, and in 1940 she had
her first exhibition in New York. Between the 1930’s and her death she produced
some 2000 pictures: detailed and lively portrayals（描绘）of the rural（田园的）
life she had known for so long, with a marvelous sense of color and form. “I think
really hard till I think of something real pretty, and then I paint it.” She said.

The famous American gorilla (猩猩) expert Diane Fossey had a completely new way to study gorillas ---she pretended to be one of them . She copied their
actions and way of life--- eating plants and getting down on her hands and knees
to walk the way a gorilla dose. It was a new relationship.
Diane Fossey was murdered in Rwanda in 1985 and her story made into the
popular film Gorillas in the Mist .It was a long way from King Kong, which is
about a gorillas as a monsters (a frightening animal), and helped to show a new
idea: the real monster is man, while the gorilla is to be admired.
Today there are thought to be around 48,000 lowland gorillas and maybe
400-500 mountain gorillas in the wild. From the Congo in West Africa, to
Rwanda and Uganda further east, they are endangered by hunting and by the
cutting down of their forest homes.
Some time ago, I found in my letterbox a little magazine from the World
Wide Fund for Nature. It had two photos side by side. One was of a young gorilla.
“ This is a species of mammal (哺乳动物),” said the words below it . “It is being
destroyed by man. We must save it for our own good.” The other photo showed a
human baby. The words also read: “ This is a species of mammal,” but then went
on: “ It is the most destructive(破坏性的) on earth. We must retain it for its own good.”

All living things must fight to stay alive. They have to feed on something and
at the same time avoid being eaten. Therefore， they have to solve this big problem of staying alive in their own way.
The danger of being eaten in the sea is great. Those plants and animals that
do survive usually reduce very fast and in great numbers. Certain sea animals
have defensive devices(装置) which help them to survive. The jelly fish have
poisonous tentacles (触角) which are used for attack and defense.
Another method of survival which sea plants and animals use is disguise (伪
装). They usually have the same color as their surroundings. In order to stay alive,
animals need to have good senses. Fishes have sharp eyes. Almost all animals are
