  • THE SWEET SIDE OF ANCIENT GRAINS

    We need to eat more whole grains. A diet centered on white flour and refined carbohydrates isn’t good for our bodies or our waistlines. Beyond whole grains, the healthiest “ancient” grains include teff, buckwheat and quinoa. These grains are free of gluten and additives, but can they (and flours such as 100 percent whole wheat, farro, barley and spelt) be used to make delicious desserts?

    The answer is a resounding yes, thanks to The Sweet Side of Ancient Grains. With recipes made from both ancient grains and more familiar 100 percent whole grains, Erin Dooner has created a must-have cookbook for anyone who wants to eat healthy … but is “blessed” with a sweet tooth. Unlike previous efforts at whole-grain dessert baking, this book relies on 100 percent whole and ancient grains and incorporates natural sugars wherever possible—all without compromising on results.

  • THE THINKING BEEKEEPER

    What's the buzz about the growing popularity of backyard beekeeping? Providing habitat for bees, pollinating your garden and producing honey for your family are some of the compelling reasons for taking up this exciting hobby. But conventional beekeeping requires a significant investment and has a steep learning curve. The alternative? Consider beekeeping outside the box.

    The Thinking Beekeeper is the definitive do-it-yourself guide to natural beekeeping in top bar hives. Based on the concept of understanding and working with bees' natural systems as opposed to trying to subvert them, the advantages of this approach include:

    • simplicity, sustainability and cost-effectiveness
    • increased safety, because of less heavy lifting and hive manipulation
    • chemical-free colonies and healthy hives

    Top bar hives can be located anywhere bees have access to forage, and they make ideal urban hives because of their small footprint. Emphasizing the intimate connection between our food systems, bees and the well-being of the planet, The Thinking Beekeeper will appeal to the new breed of beekeeper who is less focused on maximizing honey yield and more on ensuring the viability of the bee population now and in the coming years.

  • THE TRAIL TO CRAZY MAN, RIDERS OF THE DAWN, SHOWDOWN HOGBACK

    "Almost forty years ago, when my fiction was being published exclusively in 'pulp' magazines, I wrote several novel-length stories, which my editors called 'magazine novels.' In creating them, I became so involved with my characters that their lives were still as much a part of me as I was of them long after the issues in which they appeared became collector's items. Pleased as I was about how I brought the characters and their adventures to life in the pages of the magazines, I still wanted the reader to know more about my people and why they did what they did. So, over the years, I revised and expanded these magazine works into fuller-length novels that I published in paperback under other titles."

    "These particular early magazine versions of my books have long been a source of great speculation and curiosity among many of my readers, so much so of late, that I'm now pleased to collect three of them in book form for the first time."

    "I hope you enjoy them"

    —Louis L'Amour

    The Trail to Crazy Man contains:

    • Riders of the Dawn, which became Silver Canyon.
    • Showdown on the Hogback, the original version of Showdown at Yellow Butte
    • The Trail to Crazy Man, which was expanded to Crossfire Trail.
