Caroline McInnes is tired of being used for her money and her father’s influence, so she flees her hometown of Cleveland to claim free land in Nebraska. Her first taste of Nebraska, however, comes with consequences, when a snowstorm nearly ruins her plans.

Just reading the word "subsidies" may cause people's eyes to glaze over. We don't think it affects us directly, so we tune out. But it turns out that this complicated-sounding issue has an enormous impact on all of us. The Big Handout is about bad fiscal, environmental, agricultural, water, energy, health, and foreign policies. And it's a story about just one thing-subsidies. A subsidy is a grant by the government to a private business that is deemed advantageous to the public. Cotton, wheat, corn, soy, and oil are the most subsidized commodities in the United States. In this eye-opening book, New York Times best-selling author Thomas Kostigen explores government policies that cost taxpayers $200 billion per year, over $1,500 per household. In some cases we pay more for subsidized goods than we'd pay in a free market-and, in the most shocking abuses of the subsidy system, we pay for goods that aren't even produced.
The Big Handout exposes how artificial pricing hurts us and people worldwide, from our waistlines and pocketbooks to our health. By revealing just how toxic America's subsidy system has become, for everyone, The Big Handout is a wake-up call that empowers readers to effect change.

Conventional agriculture destroys our soils, pollutes our water and is a major contributor to climate change. What if our agricultural practices could stabilize, or even reverse these trends?
The Biochar Solution explores the dual function of biochar as a carbon-negative energy source and a potent soil-builder. Created by burning biomass in the absence of oxygen, this material has the unique ability to hold carbon back from the atmosphere while simultaneously enhancing soil fertility. Author Albert Bates traces the evolution of this extraordinary substance from the ancient black soils of the Amazon to its reappearance as a modern carbon sequestration strategy.
Combining practical techniques for the production and use of biochar with an overview of the development and future of carbon farming, The Biochar Solution describes how a new agricultural revolution can reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to below zero while increasing world food reserves and creating energy from biomass wastes. Biochar and carbon farming can reduce fossil fuels inputs into our food system; bring new life to desert landscapes; filter and purify drinking water; and help build carbon-negative homes, communities and nations.
Biochar is not without dangers if unregulated, and it is not a panacea, but if it fulfills its promise of taking us back from the brink of irreversible climate change, it may well be the most important discovery in human history.

Biodynamic gardening is about respect for nature, sustainability and spiritual ecology-but most of all it is about flavorsome, nutritious and real food; This biodynamic cookbook by Wendy E Cook, has all the recipes to prove it.
The Biodynamic Food and Cookbook is a source rich in information, beautifully illustrated and packed with healthy yet tasty recipes.
Biodynamic gardening and cooking is a movement that is supported by top chefs, expert viniculturists and numerous celebrities. Even Prince Charles has introduced its methods at his Gloucestershire farm. Yet biodynamic agriculture had humble beginnings, and is based on the approach of caring for the environment.
In 1924, a small group gathered to hear the philosopher and scientist Rudolf Steiner give a series of lectures. At a time when industrial farming and mass production were on the rise, Steiner spoke of the qualitative aspects of food and outlined an agricultural method founded on a holistic perception of nature. Today, more than ever, biodynamic farming and cooking goes beyond organic labels to embrace a real connection with the land.
Illustrated with hundreds of full-color photographs, The Biodynamic Food and Cookbook explains the principles behind biodynamics and places it in the context of food and cooking throughout the ages. This cookbook has a Mediterranean base, and includes recipe sections on bread, sauces, salads, desserts and drinks.
Wendy Cook takes us on a journey through the four seasons, presenting over 150 delicious recipes based on many years of working with biodynamic nutrition. She studies the ethics of food, the foundations of a balanced diet, and conjures up the color and vibrancy of Mallorca, the Spanish island that has contributed so much to her personal approach.
