Grandma S Remedies from the Author: Cherry Chappell. Long before modern medicines became so widely available, families treated everyday illnesses with home-made remedies. Reused and refined year after year, they were handed down through the generations then lovingly copied into personal 'receipt' books. Grandma's Remedies brings together a beguiling collection of them, gathered from dusty medicine chests found in attics, recalled from childhoods long past, or discovered in family archives and libraries. Many of them are surprisingly effective. Did you know, for example, that drinking two cups of strong black coffee will alleviate an asthma attack? Or that chewing toasted fennel seeds will help combat indigestion? Or that rosehip syrup is a terrific source of vitamin C? But Grandma's Remedies is more than a guide to these traditional treatments, it also paints a vivid portrait of the world of our grandparents and great-grandparents. It shows how inventive and resourceful they were with the materials near to hand, how they made the most of everything in the store-cupboard, from bread through to vinegar, and how it was the women of the household who, despite being barred from the medical profession, were relied on to safeguard family health. In these days of antibiotics and painkillers, it's easy to forget how people survived when all they had to rely on was a garden, a larder and a healthy dose of common sense.

Republic Of Barbecue from the Author: Elizabeth S. D. Engelhardt. It's no overstatement to say that the state of Texas is a republic of barbecue. Whether it's brisket, sausage, ribs, or chicken, barbecue feeds friends while they catch up, soothes tensions at political events, fuels community festivals, sustains workers of all classes, celebrates brides and grooms, and even supports churches. Recognizing just how central barbecue is to Texas's cultural life, Elizabeth Engelhardt and a team of eleven graduate students from the University of Texas at Austin set out to discover and describe what barbecue has meant to Texans ever since they first smoked a beef brisket. Republic of Barbecue presents a fascinating, multifaceted portrait of the world of barbecue in Central Texas. The authors look at everything from legendary barbecue joints in places such as Taylor and Lockhart to feedlots, ultra-modern sausage factories, and sustainable forests growing hardwoods for barbecue pits. They talk to pit masters and proprietors, who share the secrets of barbecue in their own words. Like side dishes to the first-person stories, short essays by the authors explore a myriad of barbecue's themes—food history, manliness and meat, technology, nostalgia, civil rights, small-town Texas identity, barbecue's connection to music, favorite drinks such as Big Red, Dr. Pepper, Shiner Bock, and Lone Star beer—to mention only a few. An ode to Texas barbecue in films, a celebration of sports and barbecue, and a pie chart of the desserts that accompany brisket all find homes in the sidebars of the book, while photographic portraits of people and places bring readers face-to-face with the culture of barbecue.

Lulu Phezulu from the Author: Leigh Voigt. Lulu Phezulu (or 'Lulu on top') is the name of the home of Leigh ('Lulu') Voigt, the well-known artist and book illustrator who lives with her artist husband in the house they built for themselves on a mountain top in a nature reserve in Mpumalanga. This treasure of a book is at one level a personal account of her and her family's move from the city to the country and their serendipitous encounters with nature and the local people. It is also a breathtakingly beautiful natural history notebook filled with Leigh's watercolours and drawings as well as a wealth of anecdotes, curiosities, lore, and legend about the natural world. Lulu Phezulu has grown over many years out of Leigh's need to express, in both words and pictures, the bush and its fascination, highlighting the oddities and complexities of some of its engaging characters, both human and animal. It will appeal to all who have a love of nature and a love of life, both the ordinary and the extraordinary.

Gr Ne Tomaten from the Author: Fannie Flagg. Dies ist die Geschichte von Ruth Jamison und Idgie Threadgoode und ihrem Café in Whistle Stop, Alabama. Hier braucht niemand zu bezahlen, die Schwarzen werden trotz des KuKluxKlans bedient, und wenn es sein muß, halten die Menschen zusammen wie Pech und Schwefel. Ninnie Threadgoode erzählt der dicken, unscheinbaren Evelyn ihre Erinnerungen an diese wunderbare Zeit. Allmählich entwickelt sich eine Freundschaft zwischen den beiden Frauen, die Evelyn neuen Lebensmut gibt. Was Ninnie sie lehrt ist, daß Wärme und Humor reicher machen als alles Geld der Welt.
