Treat Yourself Natural is a sourcebook for mind, body and soul, as well as a testament to the natural power and beauty of herbs. Overflowing with ideas from the pretty to the practical, this handsome volume contains many projects that use the gardener's bounty throughout the seasons. Our gardens contain much of what we need to keep mild ailments at bay and it's fun giving it a go: Instead of nuking the dandelions in your lawn, pick and use them.

Author Sof McVeigh also offers tips for what to look for in your garden or home that can be used to make health-giving tonics or soothing balms.

Whether you want to give something practical for the home, indulgent to enjoy at bathtime, or to complement a delicious dinner, there is a present that will suit everyone.

In Two Percent Solutions for the Planet, Courtney White profiles 50 innovative practices that soak up carbon dioxide in soils, reduce energy use, sustainably intensify food production and increase water quality. The “two percent” refers to: the amount of new carbon in the soil needed to reap a wide variety of ecological and economic benefits; the percentage of the nation’s population who are farmers and ranchers; and the low financial cost (in terms of gross domestic product) needed to get this work done.

Understanding Roots uncovers one of the greatest mysteries underground: the secret lives and magical workings of the roots that move and grow invisibly beneath our feet.
Roots do more than just keep a plant from falling over: They gather water and nutrients, exude wondrous elixirs to create good soil, make friends with microbes and fungi, communicate with other roots, and adapt themselves to all manner of soils, winds and climates, nourishing and sustaining our gardens, lawns and woodlands.
Understanding Roots contains more than 115 enchanting and revealing root drawings that most people have never seen, from prairies, grasslands and deserts, as well as drawings based on excavations of vegetable, fruit, nut and ornamental tree roots. Every root system presented in this book was drawn by people literally working in the trenches, sketching the roots where they grew.
The text provides a detailed review of all aspects of transplanting; describes how roots work their magic to improve soil nutrients; investigates the hidden life of soil microbes and their mysterious relationship to roots; explores the question of whether deep roots really gather more unique nutrients than shallow roots; shares the latest research about the mysteries of mycorrhizal (good fungal) association; shows you exactly where to put your fertilizer, compost, water and mulch to help plants flourish; tells you why greywater increases crop yields more than fresh water; and reveals the science behind all of the above (with citations for each scientific paper).
This book contains at least 80 percent more new information, more results of the latest in-depth and up-to-date explorations, and even more helpful guidelines on roots than the author’s previous book (Roots Demystified: Change Your Garden Habits to Help Roots Thrive). This is not a revised edition—it’s a whole new stand-alone book.

As American as apple pie? How about As American as freshly baked bread? Before we became reliant on mass-produced supermarket loaves, the United States had a rich history of homemade bread recipes, from flaky and light Southern biscuits to hearty Boston Brown Bread … not to mention the uniquely tangy San Francisco Sourdough. Adrienne Kane has unearthed these vintage recipes, given them a modern twist where appropriate, and collected them all in United States of Bread. Both novices and experienced bakers can delight in these American favorites, including Pullman Loaves, Amish Dill, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, New York Flatbread, Wild Rice Bread Stuffing, and lots more. United States of Bread is a charming collection that will inspire everyone to get in the kitchen to celebrate America’s home-baking legacy.
