  1. Hampton Gardens

    HAMPTON GARDENS

    by John Esten. Here's a chance to peak behind the high hedges to view the magnificent gardens of the Long Island Hampton area in this unusual compilation created for an exhibition at the Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton.

In between, there are many stately grounds by well known landscape designers. The majority of the book is devoted to illustrating these gardens, with accompanying descriptive narrative. Many well known artists found their way to the Hamptons to paint these gardens and their work is beautifully reproduced here. There are also many photographs from the early 1900s along with new photographs by Evelene Wechsler. Hardcover 159pp PUB at $45.00 Learn More

She came from a long line of old healers and her mother was a doctor with an interest in natural healing. Her book is wonderful for those interested in a natural approach to health. There are numerous safe and easy-to-make remedies for the following conditions: common colds (89 recipes), allergies (61), children's allergies (40), headaches (70), sleep (63), fatigue (19), stress (10), and asthma (51). Remedies use over 100 medicinal herbs, vegetables and other plants and are in the form of teas, 'nastoykas' (infusions), tinctures, juices, compresses, and just plain good advice. In addition, Konnikova spices up the text with personal antidotes and Russian folktales. Softcover 312pp. Learn More
