  5. Country Living

    ENCYCLOPEDIA COUNTRY LIVING

    Updated 10th edition By Carla Emery This is a remarkable book in many ways. Its sheer size is impressive, an 8 1/2 x 11 inch format with 885 pages. The fact that it is the effort of a single author is even more noteworthy, especially when you learn that Carla Emery spent 30 years working on this book, while at the same time, homesteading and raising seven children! She has accumulated the information for at least a dozen books in one volume. We were continually amazed at the breadth of information included here. In chapters on vegetables, herbs, and fruits, there were far more varieties mentioned than in entire books we carry on those subjects (124 herbs, for instance!). There is a very complete chapter on raising a wide variety of grasses, grains, and canes that include: amaranth, millet, quinoa, rice, sorghum (with broom-making directions) sugar cane, wheat and much more. There are also extensive sections on farm animals: poultry, goats, cows, home dairying, bees, rabbits, sheep and pigs. Favorite recipes and further resources are scattered throughout. In a time of too many slick publications, Carla Emery's sincerity is truly refreshing. This expanded updated edition includes mail order source information with email and website addresses. It also includes more of Emery's personal advice, reflections and antidotes. Softcover 885 pp? Learn More

  7. Exotic Planting

    EXOTIC PLANTING

    by Christopher Lloyd. Christopher delighted and shocked some summer visitors when he replaced an 80 year old Lutyens-designed rose garden with his exotic one. He used bold combinations of palms, cut leafed sumac and arching New Zealand flax with cannas and dahlias, which were woven with verbena and annual climbers. This combination added dazzling color from June until the first frosts. His book starts with hardy structural plants, then adds exotic perennials and shrubs. He continues his garden explosion with annuals and then finishes with exotic edibles in pots. He gives generous information about these plants to encourage you to try an exotic oasis for yourself.

  12. Farmers of Fourty Centuries

    FARMERS OF FORTY CENTURIES

    By F. H. King For thousands of years, Asian farmers have cultivated the same land without exhausting the soil's fertility and supported very dense populations. In the early 1900's, F. H. King, an official of the U.S. D. A. studied organic farming methods in China, Korea and Japan firsthand. He relates his observations in this amazing book, first published in 1911. He was impressed with Asian farmers methods of conserving and utilizing natural resources. They planted intensively, often growing two to four crops per year on the same plot, and constructed elaborate canal systems for irrigation. They let nothing go to waste; fuel ash, canal mud, organic refuse and manure, were all used to build soil fertility. King also studied their reforestation methods, land reclamation, and the cultivation of diverse crops, among them rice, mulberry for silkworms, and tea. He provides wonderful descriptions of the farmers lives and the places he visited. Over 240 black and white photographs from his trips illustrate the book. An altogether fascinating glimpse of another culture, with lessons for today. Softcover 441 pp Learn More
