  • THE RESILIENT GARDENER

    Scientist and gardener Carol Deppe combines her passion for gardening with newly emerging scientific information from many fields — resilience science, climatology, climate change, ecology, anthropology, paleontology, sustainable agriculture, nutrition, health and medicine. In the last half of The Resilient Gardener, Deppe extends and illustrates these principles with detailed information about growing and using five key crops: potatoes, corn, beans, squash and eggs.

    In this book you’ll learn how to:

    • Garden in an era of unpredictable weather and climate change
    • Grow, store, and use more of your own staple crops
    • Garden efficiently and comfortably (even if you have a bad back)
    • Grow, store, and cook different varieties of potatoes and save your own potato seed
    • Grow the right varieties of corn to make your own gourmet-quality, fast-cooking polenta, cornbread, parched corn, corn cakes, pancakes and even savory corn gravy
    • Make whole-grain, corn-based breads and cakes using the author’s original gluten-free recipes involving no other grains, artificial binders, or dairy products
    • Grow and use popbeans and other grain legumes
    • Grow, store, and use summer, winter, and drying squash
    • Keep a home laying flock of ducks or chickens; integrate them with your gardening, and grow most of their feed

    The Resilient Gardener is both a conceptual and a hands-on gardening book, and is suitable for gardeners at all levels of experience. Resilience here is broadly conceived and encompasses a full range of problems, from personal hard times such as injuries, family crises, financial problems, health problems, and special dietary needs (gluten intolerance, food allergies, carbohydrate sensitivity, and a need for weight control) to serious regional and global disasters and climate change. It is a supremely optimistic as well as realistic book about how resilient gardeners and their gardens can flourish even in challenging times and help their communities to survive and thrive through everything that comes their way — from tomorrow through the next thousand years.

  • THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF ANIMALS

    In The Secret Language of Animals, biologist Janine Benyus takes us inside the animal kingdom and shows us the whys and hows behind the distinctive behavior of creatures great and small in their natural environments.

    Divided geographically into five sections—Africa, Asia, North America, the oceans, and the poles—the book examines and describes the behavior, body language, and patterns of communication of 20 different animals: the gorilla, lion, African elephant, plains zebra, black rhinoceros, giraffe, ostrich, greater flamingo, Nile crocodile, giant panda, peacock, Komodo monitor, bottlenose dolphin, California sea lion, gray wolf, bald eagle, sandhill crane, beluga whale, polar bear, and Adélie penguin.

    For each animal, Benyus describes and explains basic behaviors (locomotion, feeding, drinking, bathing, grooming, sleeping), communication behavior (greeting, social play, group defense, conflict, aggression/submission, fighting, courtship, copulation), and parenting behavior (birth, care and feeding, teaching, communal care).

    The book is illustrated throughout with tender yet precise line drawings that beckon us to the animals and vividly capture everything from changing facial expressions to nurturing postures to playful and aggressive interactions. The text, too, is both intimate and informative, allowing for a deep connection with, and a great admiration for, each one of the animals.

  • THE WAR ON BUGS

    Will Allen is an organic farming visionary. A true activist, entrepreneur and expert, he understands the complexities of farming firsthand and the impact that commercialization has had. In the early 19th century, as the American population grew rapidly, demands on crop output increased. Seeing an opportunity to play upon fears from market demand, chemical companies declared war on the vile, profit-sucking, output-wrecking, archnemesis of the average American farmer: bugs. With precision, pesticide manufacturers delivered a "shock and awe" media campaign that can only be compared to the current blitzkrieg from today's pharmaceutical companies. Bugs were the threat to the American dream - and there was a cure available to every farmer available in spray, granule, dust or systemic form that could be applied to your crops. Will Allen's War on Bugs reveals how advertisers, editors, scientists, large-scale farmers, government agencies and even Dr. Seuss colluded to convince farmers to use deadly chemicals, hormones and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in an effort to pad their wallets and control the American farm enterprise. Utilizing dozens of original advertisements and promotions to illustrate the story, Allen details how consumers and activists have struggled against toxic food. Echoing the warnings of seminal works on the topic such as The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, 100,000,000 Guinea Pigs by Arthur Kallet and F.J. Schlink, and Silent Spring by Rachel Carson, The War on Bugs shouts that the time to stop poisoning our food, water, air and ourselves is now!

  • THE WITH OR WITHOUT MEAT COOKBOOK

    With the growing evidence that vegetarian meals are great for your health, more people with diabetes are looking to build vegetarian dishes into their meal plans. However, not everyone is ready to give up meat completely, and most vegetarians live with someone who's not ready to take the plunge. Thus was born the "flexitarian," someone who eats mainly vegetarian food, but occasionally fits in a little meat, poultry or fish. Catering to this growing crowd (nearly one in four Americans self-identifies as a flexitarian), The With or Without Meat Cookbook makes it simple for people to savor the tastes and health benefits of eating more like a vegetarian, while being able to stick to a balanced meal plan for diabetes. Each of the 125 diabetes-friendly recipes is vegetarian with a non-vegetarian recipe "add-on" provided, as well. Each recipe can be made two ways: one for veggie lovers and one for meat lovers. For those with diabetes, pre-diabetes or heart health issues (or who are simply looking to improve their diet), the flexitarian approach provides the best of both worlds. Nutrition facts are provided and each perfectly portioned recipe follows the nutritional guidelines of the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
