More than 90 percent of the power generated in the United States comes from large, centralized, highly polluting, nonrenewable sources of energy. It is delivered through long, brittle transmission lines, and then is squandered through inefficiency and waste. But it doesn't have to be that way. Communities can indeed produce their own local, renewable energy.

Power From the People explores how homeowners, co-ops, nonprofit institutions, governments and businesses are putting power in the hands of local communities through distributed energy programs and energy-efficiency measures.

Using examples from around the nation – and occasionally from around the world – Greg Pahl explains how to plan, organize, finance and launch community-scale energy projects that harvest energy from sun, wind, water and earth. He also explains why community power is a necessary step on the path to energy security and community resilience – particularly as we face peak oil, cope with climate change and address the need to transition to a more sustainable future.

What the Animals Taught Me brings together stories about rescued farm animals at a shelter in Sonoma County, Calif., and shows what these animals can teach us. Each story illustrates how animals can help us reconnect with the natural world … and see and embrace others as they truly are.

Wishing to escape the urban rat race, freelance writer and editor Stephanie Marohn moved to rural northern California in 1993. Life was sweet. She was a busy freelancer. In return for reduced rent, she fed and cared for two horses and a donkey. Her life was full.

And then, more farm animals started to appear: a miniature white horse, a donkey, sheep and chickens, followed by deer and other wildlife. Each one needed sanctuary, either from abuse, physical injury or neglect. Marohn took each animal in and gradually turned her 10-acre spread into an animal sanctuary.

Each chapter of What the Animals Taught Me focuses on a particular animal that became part of Marohn's life. She shares what she learned from the sheep she rescued from an animal collector, the abused donkey she helped nurse back to health, and many others. Her book reminds us that animals have much to teach us about love, compassion, trust, and so many of the other qualities we so often try to cultivate in ourselves.

In the same way that Michael Pollan’s slim best-seller Food Rules brought a gust of common sense to the everyday activity of eating, Just Ride is a revelation. Forget the ultralight, uncomfortable bikes, flashy jerseys, clunky shoes that clip onto tiny pedals, the grinding out of endless miles. Instead, ride like you did when you were a kid—just get on your bike and discover the pure joy of riding it.

A reformed racer who’s commuted by bike every day since 1980, Grant Petersen shares a lifetime of unexpected facts, controversial opinions, expert techniques and his own maverick philosophy. His company, Rivendell Bicycle Works, makes bikes for riders ready to opt out of a culture overrun by racing, and his writings and opinions have appeared in major bicycling and outdoor magazines.
