Wolf Totem by Jiang Rong
Wolf Totem

Doug, January 5, 2011

Spell-binding .. you will not want to put it down. From the 'Translator's Note' - "In 1969, a young Chinese intellectual from Beijing answered Chairman Mao's call for city dwellers to go 'up to the mountains and down to the countryside,' joining as many as a hundred like-minded youngsters in traveling to one of China'a most remote, most "primitive" spots north-central Mongolia. .... "Jiang Rong did in fact learn" ... and learn I did - WOW, to the very end of the book. If you have a love of the out-of-doors, and adventure, and Western literary classics - you will love this book. READ IT.

An Irish Country Doctor by Patrick Taylor
An Irish Country Doctor

Doug, January 2, 2010

Being I read Dr. Taylor's second book before I read this first one - I was well aware of all the characters in the story line ---- but this did not stop me for getting the background to a wonderful group of people in a very beautiful land. The Irish - enchant - Dr. Taylor is a gifted wordsmith, capturing with just the right phrases a land and people he has come to love through humor and sparks.

An Irish Country Village
An Irish Country Village

Doug, January 2, 2010

Incredible humanity - you cannot help but laugh and cry with the folk in this county village with all their textures of down-to-earth life and living. Dr. Taylor is a rare writer who tackles the lives of other people brilliantly; totally vibrant, intoxicating and heart-warming; there are few better portraits of such a different world.

Landscaping with Fruit: Strawberry Ground Covers, Blueberry Hedges, Grape Arbors, and 39 Other Luscious Fruits to Make Your Yard an Edible Par by Lee Reich
Landscaping with Fruit: Strawberry Ground Covers, Blueberry Hedges, Grape Arbors, and 39 Other Luscious Fruits to Make Your Yard an Edible Par

Doug, January 1, 2010

Beyond description ... 191 pages simply packed with some of the most incredible information I have ever experienced. With the renewed interest in growing our own food and the focus on 'kitchen gardens' - this book is most timely and will serve as a complete resource to help many of us have an abundant harvest. Here you will learn about design, plant selection, growing techniques and a philosophy of gardening that will make your 'edible' landscape both productive and beautiful.

Public Produce: The New Urban Agriculture by Darrin Nordahl
Public Produce: The New Urban Agriculture

Doug, November 1, 2009

It is about time someone wrote 'clearly' about this issue. Good work Darrin - if just one person in public office in each city or government entity would read this book, we very well may be able to change the shape of our public places - from waste-lands of energy gobblers to energy producers.
