In Little Heathens, Mildred Kalish shares her story of growing up on her grandparents' Iowa farm during the depths of the Great Depression. With her father banished from the household for mysterious transgressions, 5-year-old Mildred and her family could easily have been overwhelmed by the challenge of simply trying to survive. This, however, is not a tale of suffering.
Kalish counts herself among the lucky of that era. She had caring grandparents who possessed-and valiantly tried to impose-all the pioneer virtues of their forebears, teachers who inspired and befriended her, and a barnyard full of animals ready to be tamed and loved. She and her siblings and their cousins from the farm across the way played as hard as they worked, running barefoot through the fields, as free and wild as they dared.
Filled with recipes and how-tos for everything from catching and skinning a rabbit to preparing homemade skin and hair beautifiers, apple cream pie, and the world's best head cheese (start by scrubbing the head of the pig until it is pink and clean), Little Heathens portrays a world of hardship and hard work tempered by simple rewards. There was the unsurpassed flavor of tender new dandelion greens harvested as soon as the snow melted; the taste of crystal-clear, marble-sized balls of honey robbed from a bumblebee nest; the sweet smell from the body of a lamb sleeping on sun-warmed grass; and the magical quality of oat shocking under the light of a full harvest moon.
Little Heathens offers a loving but realistic portrait of a "hearty-handshake Methodist" family that gave its members a remarkable legacy of kinship, kindness and remembered pleasures. Recounted in a luminous narrative filled with tenderness and humor, Kalish's memoir of her childhood shows how the right stuff can make even the bleakest of times seem like "quite a romp."

Everyone knows the world is toxic. But few of us realize that the average person carries a load of 700 chemicals in the body. The gradual buildup of these toxins has a ripple effect on our health, starting with mild ailments and culminating in chronic illness.
Working with hundreds of patients, integrative medicine expert Dr. Jeffrey A. Morrison has found an easy and effective solution. Outlining both a 30-day intensive and a 10-day seasonal tuneup, he offers a simple and nutritious eating plan that efficiently detoxifies the body, allowing it to heal itself. Readers will not only cleanse their body of toxins, but also shed pounds of toxic weight as they uncover and remove the underlying causes of illness.
Unlike other detox plans, Cleanse Your Body, Clear Your Mind features cooked food and regular meals, making it easy for readers to start and stay on the path to good health.

We know whole grain breads are better for us, but will we actually eat them, much less take time to bake them?
Yes, says beloved baking instructor Peter Reinhart, but only if they are very, very good. So Reinhart, with his decades of experience crafting amazing artisanal breads, has made it his mission to create whole grain breads that are nothing short of incredible.
In this follow-up to his award-winning book The Bread Baker's Apprentice, Reinhart offers groundbreaking methods for making whole grain breads that taste better than any you've ever had. And because his approach is also simpler and less labor intensive than conventional techniques, you'll choose to make and eat these breads. His 55 recipes for whole grain sandwich, hearth and specialty breads, plus bagels, crackers and more, incorporate widely available whole wheat flour as well as other flours and grains such as rye, barley, steel-cut oats, cornmeal and quinoa. Each is so rich with flavor and satisfying texture that white-flour counterparts pale in comparison.
Written in Reinhart's famously clear style and accompanied by inspiring photographs, these recipes were perfected with the help of nearly 350 testers. Introductory chapters provide a tutorial, with step-by-step photographs, of the delayed fermentation method that is at the heart of these recipes, as well as a crash course in baking science, discussions of grains other than wheat, and more. Advanced bakers will relish Reinhart's innovative techniques and exacting scientific explanations, and beginning bakers will rejoice in the ease of baking wholesome breads with such extraordinary flavor.
About the author:
Peter Reinhart is a baking instructor and faculty member at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, N.C. He was the co-founder of Brother Juniper's Bakery in Santa Rosa, Calif., and is the author of six books on bread baking, including Brother Juniper's Bread Book, Crust and Crumb, and the 2002 James Beard Cookbook of the Year and IACP Cookbook of the Year, The Bread Baker's Apprentice.
