Larry Bowlden reviews Barbara Kingsolver's latest book. He reports that Kingsolver--scientist, conservationist, and supreme story teller--spins a tale of two families about to lose their shelters: one in the late 1800s, the other in  the present. Science, Darwin, the contemporary state of the planet, and the conflict in family  life, all figure into Kingsolver's wonderful novel, Unsheltered.
