  3. Farmers of Fourty 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

  12. Ginseng


    by David A. Taylor. Ginseng, now making its appearance in softdrinks (where its health benefits should be remarkable), has had a long, colorful history. And its future looks just as interesting. David Taylor explores both in his intriguing book. Ginseng is native to 2 countries, China and North America and Taylor traveled extensively in each to learn about Ginseng. His profiles of the characters he meets are wonderful - Chinese dealers, New York traders, and modern day 'Gensingers' - wild 'sang' hunters and 'simulated wild' growers. He compares ginsengs uses in Eastern and Western medicine and looks at past and present research into ginsengs medicinal effect. He also shows the seamier side of ginseng - behavior induced throughout Asian, European and American history - by its high value. A fascinating look at the side effects of ginsengs magical promise of good health, longevity, and wealth. Hardcover 308pp Pub at $23.95 Learn More
