Dandelion Hunter from the Author: Rebecca Lerner. In this engaging and eye-opening read, forager-journalist Becky Lerner sets out on a quest to find her inner hunter-gatherer in the city of Portland, Oregon. After a disheartening week trying to live off wild plants from the streets and parks near her home, she learns the ways of the first people who lived there and, along with a quirky cast of characters, discovers an array of useful wild plants hiding in plain sight. As she harvests them for food, medicine, and just-in-case apocalypse insurance, Lerner delves into anthropology, urban ecology and sustainability, and finds herself looking at Nature in a very different way. Humorous, philosophical, and informative, Dandelion Hunter has something for everyone, from the curious neophyte to the seasoned forager.

The Ultimate Dandelion Cookbook from the Author: Kristina Seleshanko. An Amazon #1 Bestseller! Become a dandelion hunter! 148 dandelion recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and even dessert! What if someone told you one of the world's most nutritious foods is also tasty, can be cooked many different ways, is easy to find, and is totally free? I know what I'd do: I'd run out and grab some! Well, the good news is, there is such a food: Dandelions. Yes, those pesky weeds with bright yellow flowers you've grown up thinking are the enemy of perfect lawns are actually food – brought to North America by immigrants who knew how valuable they are. Every part of the dandelion is edible: * Dandelion greens recipes are common throughout Europe and often used in salad, quiche, lasagna and other pasta dishes, and many other familiar and less-familiar dishes. * The honey-like flowers are a healthy and tasty addition to bread, omelets, pancakes, and more – plus they make delectable dandelion wine, dandelion jelly, and dandelion wine. * The buds are often pickled or added to stir frys and other dishes. * The stems can be eaten like noodles. * And the roots add coffee flavor to everything from ice cream and cakes to drinks. And let's not forget dandelion root tea! The Ultimate Dandelion Cookbook offers 148 recipes, plus expert advice and tips, for cooking all parts of the dandelion – one of nature's best free foods.

So great, and so easy to make this recipe from the brand-new Ultimate Dandelion Cookbook. You can see pictures on my blog." --Caleb Warnock author of Backyard Winter Gardening and other books "5 Stars. Kristina Seleshanko has created a wonderful collection of enticing recipes, all featuring those yellow-top, front yard pests: dandelions. She includes some rather expected dishes, like omelets, salads and soups. Other recipes, however, are likely to catch readers off guard, like pizza, soda, jellies, wine and even ice cream and cookies! What I enjoy most about this cookbook is the abundance of education. The author includes valuable nutritional information, but also instructions on how to harvest dandelions, how to preserve them and store and what alters the taste of these greens. She's obviously very knowledgeable. All in all, this book is an excellent value at a great price." --Tanya Dennis Writer & Editor "5 Stars. What a fantastic book! I have seen dandelion recipes here and there, and am determined to try my hand at dandelion cordial, but this book has it all. The author went to great pains to give a very comprehensive book on dandelions in every form. With this book you will learn to use every part of the dandelion to make foods and beverages for every meal of the day. If you are interested in frugal living or just trying something a little different, get this book and get out in the yard and start picking!" --Jennifer Shambrook Author of I Can Can Chicken!

Hunt Gather Cook from the Author: Hank Shaw. From field, forest, and stream to table, award-winning journalist Hank Shaw explores the forgotten art of foraging. If there is a frontier beyond organic, local and seasonal, beyond farmers' markets and grass-def meat, it's hunting, fishing and foraging your own food. A lifelong angler and forager who became a hunter late in life, Hank Shaw is dedicated to finding a place on the table for the myriad overlooked and underutilized wild foods that are there for the taking -- if you know how to find them. In Hunt, Gather, Cook, he shares his experiences both in the field and in the kitchen, as well as his extensive knowledge of North America's edible flora and fauna. Hank provides a user-friendly, food-oriented introduction to tracking down and cooking everything from prickly pears, to grouper to snowshoe hares.

Nature Spirituality From The Ground Up from the Author: Lupa. Nature Spirituality from the Ground Up invites you to go beyond simply exploring the symbols of nature and encourages you to bury your hands in the earth and work with the real thing. This is a book on green spirituality that makes a difference, empowering you to connect with totems as a part of your spiritual life. Uniquely approaching totems as beings we can give to, rather than take from, Lupa shows how orienting yourself this way deepens your spiritual connection to the earth and helps you rejoin the community of nature. And while most books on totems focus on animals, Nature Spirituality from the Ground Up helps you work with interconnected ecosystems of totems: plants, fungi, minerals, waterways, landforms, and more.

Knowing God S Secrets from the Author: John Hunter. “It is sad indeed that there are so many true and earnest believers who think of a victorious Christian life as a “super deluxe” version instead of normality and, in the words of the author, are “so busy enduring their failure that they have no time to enjoy their faith.” The mystery of how to “be” what as Christians we have been born again to “become” is now an open secret in Jesus Christ—that the secret of a changed life is an exchanged life!
