  • TRAVELING THE POWER LINE

    In our power-hungry world, all the talk about energy-what's safe and what's risky, what's clean and what's dirty, what's cheap and what's easy-tends to generate more heat than light. What, Julianne Couch wanted to know, is the real story on power production in this country? Approaching the question as a curious consumer, Couch takes us along as she visits nine sites where electrical power is developed from different fuel sources. From a geothermal plant in the Mojave Desert to a nuclear plant in Nebraska, from a Wyoming coal-fired power plant to a Maine tidal-power project, Couch gives us an insider's look at how power is generated, how it affects neighboring landscapes and the people who live and work there, and how each source comes with its own unique complications.

    The result is an informed, evenhanded discussion of energy production and consumption on the global, national, regional, local and-most important-personal level. Knowledge is the real power this book imparts, allowing each of us to think beyond the flip of a switch to the real consequences of our energy use.

  • UNCLE DAVE'S COW

    CLEARANCE: $12.51

    As folks like Michael Pollan and Joel Salatin have been preaching for years, commercial meat production isn't good for the animals, our bodies or the planet. Yet the organic, sustainably raised pork, beef and lamb one finds at supermarkets and specialty stores are often pricey, and the marketing labels can be beyond confusing. What if you just want to eat meat as healthfully and enjoyably as possible, all while sticking to a budget?

    Uncle Dave's Cow: And Other Whole Animals My Freezer Has Known shows you how to find and evaluate local farmers, form a buying group, plan out cuts and quantities, store and preserve your purchases, and dish up an entire animal one part at a time. Author Leslie Miller, a busy Seattle mother who hails from a long lineage of Central Washington farmers, shows readers how to go whole hog (or cow, or goat, or lamb, for that matter) as she takes the reader along on her own educational journey – from the moment she locates and buys her first pig, all the way to her last forkful of tender pulled pork. Miller explores local farmers markets and 4-H fairs, talks to dedicated farmers and butchers, and explains how even her children connect to the cow in the freezer. By sharing her whole-food experiences, she allows readers to connect to the source of their food, while her 45 original recipes show how to cook mouthwatering meals from the abundance of whole animals.

    Written with urban charm and a knife-sharp sense of humor, Uncle Dave's Cow is a friendly and accessible guide to sourcing and eating local meat for parents, foodies, and everyone who wants to learn how to be a well-prepared consumer and cook through to the bone.

  • UNDERGROUND BUILDINGS

    Unusual as they seem, underground buildings are surprisingly common.

    Every day, tens of thousands in North America work, shop, dine, study and play in the more than 300 public and commercial structures and 5,000 private homes nestled in the earth.

    Underground buildings are safe, attractive, useful and comfortable places to frequent and live. Unlike a common misconception, most are dry and warm, and they are often sun-filled. More than 100 underground buildings are included in this fascinating subterranean tour. These buildings range from the famous to the unnoticed. Some were built for pragmatic reasons, others for aesthetic considerations, and still others, for a combination of both.

    There are impressive success stories and discouraging tales of failure. Some underground buildings are incredibly energy-efficient, for example, while others leaked so badly they were abandoned.

    A vast spectrum of structures is presented, ranging from stunning examples of hidden opulence to humble subterranean cubbyholes where unassuming people immerse themselves in nature.

  • UNDERSTANDING ROOTS

    Understanding Roots uncovers one of the greatest mysteries underground: the secret lives and magical workings of the roots that move and grow invisibly beneath our feet.

    Roots do more than just keep a plant from falling over: They gather water and nutrients, exude wondrous elixirs to create good soil, make friends with microbes and fungi, communicate with other roots, and adapt themselves to all manner of soils, winds and climates, nourishing and sustaining our gardens, lawns and woodlands.

    Understanding Roots contains more than 115 enchanting and revealing root drawings that most people have never seen, from prairies, grasslands and deserts, as well as drawings based on excavations of vegetable, fruit, nut and ornamental tree roots. Every root system presented in this book was drawn by people literally working in the trenches, sketching the roots where they grew.

    The text provides a detailed review of all aspects of transplanting; describes how roots work their magic to improve soil nutrients; investigates the hidden life of soil microbes and their mysterious relationship to roots; explores the question of whether deep roots really gather more unique nutrients than shallow roots; shares the latest research about the mysteries of mycorrhizal (good fungal) association; shows you exactly where to put your fertilizer, compost, water and mulch to help plants flourish; tells you why greywater increases crop yields more than fresh water; and reveals the science behind all of the above (with citations for each scientific paper).

    This book contains at least 80 percent more new information, more results of the latest in-depth and up-to-date explorations, and even more helpful guidelines on roots than the author’s previous book (Roots Demystified: Change Your Garden Habits to Help Roots Thrive). This is not a revised edition—it’s a whole new stand-alone book.
