        In his insightful new book, Holy Shit: Managing Manure to Save Mankind, contrary farmer Gene Logsdon provides the inside story of manure — our greatest, yet most misunderstood, natural resource. He begins by lamenting a modern society that not only throws away both animal and human manure — worth billions of dollars in fertilizer value — but that spends a staggering amount of money to do so. This wastefulness makes even less sense as the supply of mined or chemically synthesized fertilizers dwindles and their cost skyrockets. In fact, he argues, if we do not learn how to turn our manures into fertilizer to keep food production in line with increasing population, our civilization, like so many that went before it, will inevitably decline.

        With his trademark humor, his years of experience writing about both farming and waste management, and his uncanny eye for the small but important details, Logsdon artfully describes how to make fertilizer and humus by managing farm manure, pet manure and human manure.

        About the author

        CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $14.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

        Although the American cowboy has long been a favorite subject for novelists, filmmakers and illustrators, too often the picture painted of them bears little relation to reality. Philip Ashton Rollins, who lived in the West on and off between 1892 and 1924, set out to create a more accurate portrait of this enduring icon. Based on what he himself witnessed, this fascinating study discusses what exactly makes a cowboy, as well as cowboy weaponry, clothing, saddles and equipment; the "cowboy character"; and a cowboy's work. In addition, Rollins describes the history of ranching in the United States, the raising of horses and cattle, livestock rustling, and more.

        This remarkable book is perhaps the most accurate and detailed description of the real-life American cowboy ever written. Here Rollins describes the beginnings of ranching in America, and how horses and cattle were raised. He details, with flair and expertise, everything about the cowboy and his work — his tools and weapon, his clothes and tack, the specialized skills he perfected, and the life he led while on the range. He explains that there was really no typical American cowboy and definitively separates fact from legend. A wonderful resource for anybody who lives or loves the cowboy life, this book is an incredible record of these men, their lives and their work.

        About the author
        Philip Ashton Rollins, a graduate of Princeton, traveled extensively in the West and wrote about its people and their work.
