The New Wildcrafted Cuisine by Pascal Baudar

"The New Wildcrafted Cuisine: Exploring the Exotic Gastronomy of Local Terroir by Pascal Baudar explores the flavors of local terroir, combining research and knowledge of plants and landscape that chefs often lack with the fascinating and innovative techniques of a master food preserver and self-described 'culinary alchemist.’ … Baudar, an experienced forager, links terrain to preservation through recipes for atypical edibles such as pickled acorns and currant capers.”

Dreaming of Lions by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

"She talks of dark times: her recurring alcoholism, both her children’s serious accidents, and her husband’s ALS. But she also writes of the joy of discovery, of following a streetwise dog to see what he did all day, of studying elephant communication, and of getting to know local deer. Thomas has had a wonderfully eclectic life, thanks to her fascination with animals, writing, and the anthropology of the everyday.”

The Bio-Integrated Farm by Shawn Jadrnicek

"With curiosity, imagination, and exuberant obsession, [Jadrnicek] shares his successful manifestations and ongoing experiments and shows readers how to implement them in their own agricultural pursuits, whether a market farm or steep urban yard. He provides both broad conceptual overviews and comprehensive specifics....ambitious weekend gardeners dreaming of an in-town, self-sufficient aquaculture greenhouse—will likely be impatient to try it themselves.”

The Carbon Farming Solution by Eric Toensmeier

"Toensmeier (Perennial Vegetables) contends that shifting agricultural practices can help mitigate climate change and advocates for carbon farming, i.e., using a suite of perennial crops and practices that simultaneously seclude carbon in the soil while maintaining the amounts of crops needed globally for food, materials, and energy...VERDICT: Both small- and large-scale farmers will find ways to apply methods that segregate carbon and therefore lessen the deleterious effects of climate change in this comprehensive title.”

Miraculous Abundance
by Perrine and Charles Hervé-Gruyer

"Charles Hervé-Gruyer tells the starry-eyed, dirty-nailed story of how he and his wife, Perrine, transformed a 'dilapidated cottage' and 'a mediocre field' into an idyllic, prolific 37-acre farm and educational center in Normandy over the course of eight years. La Ferme du Bec Hellouin, one of the few French farms employing permaculture and intensive, nonmechanized agriculture, has attracted the attention of aspiring microfarmers and mainstream agronomists.”

The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America by Jonathan Tasini

The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America is a must-read for anyone who shares a vision for a forward-looking, sustainable, and more just United States of America. In this short, accessible book, author Jonathan Tasini draws heavily from Sanders’ ample public record of speeches, statements, and interviews, and couples his working-class spirit with specific legislation he has championed on a number of core proposals that comprise a broader people’s agenda for America.
