Hempstone Heritage I explores the fascinating story of the thriving hemp industry of early Pennsylvania. The book's subtitle offers a succinct summation: "All the Heckled Hemp She Can Spin - A Study of the Early American Homespun Hemp Industry as Revealed by the Wills of Old Lancaster County, Pennsylvania: 1729-1845."
The first book in the Hempstone Heritage Series, this work reveals the untold tale of the hempfields of Pennsylvania. Hemp was a vital necessity for our ancestors. They used it for everything from course cloth to fine linen and everything in between. The Conestoga wagons were covered in hemp canvas, and hemp was used for grain bags, rugs, curtains, tablecloths, napkins, handkerchiefs, towels, pillowcases, sheets, and tough, durable work clothes. Between 1729 and1845, Pennsylvania's Lancaster County alone contained more than 100 water-powered hemp mills, and dozens more were located in York County. The author reveals this and much more in this detailed account. It's a story that is changing the way historians have viewed our history and opening the eyes of many.
In a race to save Lancaster County's prime farmland and unique culture before this beautiful but endangered land is paved over forever, Hempstone Heritage donates one dollar for every book sold to the Lancaster Farmland Trust.

This cotton canvas tote bag helps to conserve resources and show the world that you care about nature's medicine.
A behind-the-scenes look at the robustly competitive race to dominate the market for electric cars, the larger-than-life moguls behind them, and the changes that are transforming the auto industry.
In the 1980s, it was unimaginable that the home computer would become as common and easy to use as a toaster. Today, plug-in charging stations and smart grids seem like something still far off in the future. But by 2020, the auto industry will look very different from today’s field of troubled auto giants. The combination of technological breakthroughs and charging networks driven by global warming and peak oil makes it clear that revolutionary change in the auto industry is happening right now.
In High Voltage, Jim Motavalli captures this period of unprecedented change, documenting the evolution from internal combustion engines to electric power. Driven by the auto world’s ambitious and sometimes outlandish personalities, the book chronicles the race to dominate the market, focusing on big players like Tesla and Fisker, as well as a tiny start-up and a battery supplier. Flashing forward to the changes we’ll see in the coming years, High Voltage shows a not-so-distant future where we will live on a smart grid, our cars “fueling,” that is, charging, while we shop or sleep. The ramifications of these changes will be on a grander scale than most of us ever imagined—altering foreign policy, reducing trade deficits, and perhaps even ending global warming.
