Janisse Ray, award-winning author of Ecology of a Cracker Childhood and Wild Card Quilt, writes an evocative paean to wildness and wilderness restoration with an extraordinary journey into southern Georgia's Pinhook Swamp.
Pinhook Swamp acts as a vital watershed and wildlife corridor, a link between the great southern wildernesses of Okefenokee Swamp and Osceola National Forest. Together Okefenokee, Osceola and Pinhook form one of the largest expanses of protected wild land east of the Mississippi River. This is one of America's last truly wild places, and Pinhook takes us into its heart.
Ray comes to know Pinhook intimately as she joins the fight to protect it, spending the night in the swamp, tasting honey made from its flowers, tracking wildlife, and talking to others about their relationship with the swamp. Ray sees Pinhook through the eyes of the people who live there: naturalists, beekeepers, homesteaders, hunters and locals at the country store. In lyrical, down-home prose, she draws together the swamp's need for restoration and the human desire for wholeness and wildness in our own lives and landscapes.

Based on the most current research in nutrition and food science, and written for the newly converted and hard-core carnivores alike, Pure Beef will answer readers’ most essential questions: Why eat beef? What kind should I eat? Where can I buy it? How should I cook it?
Americans have a lot to learn about their all-time favorite meat; even devoted beef eaters rarely venture beyond steaks and hamburgers. Because there’s a whole lot more to a cow, Pure Beef will teach readers how to cook every cut, including underappreciated meats from the shoulder, haunch, and belly, not to mention meaty ribs and organ meats. For folks who prefer to stick with steaks and burgers, the new, leaner beef on the market (especially grass-fed) demands a different way of cooking those classic dishes to perfection, and Pure Beef will show home cooks the way.
A balanced approach to beef’s healthfulness, economy, and sustainability lies at the heart of this book. By its very organization, Pure Beef upends the traditional beef hierarchy that promotes 12-ounce portions of big steaks and premium roasts. The background information in Part I will revise health and nutritional information about beef consumption, while the recipes in Part II will revalue the most common beef cuts, starting with ground beef, and adjust serving sizes to match current nutritional recommendations.

Imagine you are first in line at a potluck buffet. The spread includes not just food and water, but all the materials needed for shelter, clothing, healthcare and education. How do you know how much to take? How much is enough to leave for your neighbors behind you - not just the six billion people, but the wildlife, and the as-yet-unborn?
In the face of looming ecological disaster, many people feel the need to change their own lifestyles as a tangible way of transforming our unsustainable culture. Radical Simplicity is the first book that guides the reader to a personal sustainability goal, then offers a process to monitor progress to a lifestyle that is equitable amongst all people, species and generations.
It employs three tools to help readers begin their customized journey to simplicity. It builds on steps from Your Money or Your Life so readers can design their own personal economics to save money, get free of debt and align their work with their values. It uses refined tools from Our Ecological Footprint so readers can measure how much nature is needed to supply all they consume and absorb their waste. And, by advocating time alone in wild nature, it opens readers to another reality with humanity as one species among many on a complex and inter-related planet.
Combining lyrical narrative, compassionate advocacy and absorbing science, Radical Simplicity is a practical, personal answer to 21st century challenges that will appeal as much to Cultural Creatives and students as to spiritual seekers, policy makers and sustainability professionals.
