DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

New York Times bestselling author of Super Natural Every Day, Heidi Swanson shares 125 natural foods recipes along with photographs inspired by her travels both near (Northern California) and far (Italy, Morocco, France, India, and Japan). Equal parts recipe journal and photo album, Near & Far focuses on dishes inspired by Heidi Swanson's Northern California kitchen and her many international travels to diverse cities including Marrakech, Tokyo, Paris, Jaipur, Rome, Kyoto, Palermo, New Delhi, and more. In this deeply personal collection, Heidi turns to the series of dog-eared recipe journals she has kept for years--each filled with newspaper clippings, magazine scraps, photos, stamps, receipts, and sticky notes to chronicle details she wants to remember: a paprika-spiked tomato soup in Amsterdam, the pattern of an ancient Italian olive grove she passed on the way to the Bari airport, and the precise way an elderly Vietnamese woman carefully sliced broccoli stems in the back of a grocery in New Zealand. Vegetarian recipes such as Carrot and Sake Salad, Fennel Frond Orzo, Rye Buttermilk Cakes, Harissa Farro, Fresh Ginger Citrus Juice, and Brown Butter Tortelli make use of the healthy, whole foods ingredients and approachable techniques that Heidi's sizable fanbase has come to expect. And photographs taken on location around the world--as well as back home in Heidi's kitchen--reveal the places that inspire her warm and nourishing cooking.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

**NEW YORK TIMES & USATODAY Bestselling Series** There’s optimistic. And there’s Jesse Walker. If he wasn’t so charming, his sunny disposition and incessant grin would get old. Fast. Falling in love with the broken girl who had at first seemed immune to anything resembling love was the best thing to happen to Jesse since the Walkers adopted him when he was five. As Jesse’s life continues at the ranch and Rowen begins making her mark in the Seattle art community, they wonder where the middle ground is. Or if there even is one. As push comes to shove, they’re forced to make choices neither are eager to make, and Jesse and Rowen have to face what their lives might look like without the other. Can two people with such tragic pasts and different presents expect a promising future together? Whatever the answer, they’ll need a lot more than love to make it. *Recommended for mature readers due to moderate content and language.*

Editor: Groundwood Books Ltd

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In this exquisite lullaby, the beauty and wonder of a northern winter night unfold, with images of a soft snowfall, the wild animals that appear in the garden, the twinkling stars, the gentle rhythm of the northern lights and the etchings of frost on the window pane. As the young child sleeps, wrapped in a downy blanket, a snowflake falls, and then another and another. The poem describes the forest of snow-covered pines, where a deer and fawn nibble a frozen apple, and a great gray owl swoops down with its feathers trailing through the snow. Two snowshoe hares scamper and play under the watchful eyes of a little fox, and a tiny mouse scurries in search of a midnight feast. When the snow clouds disappear, stars light up the sky, followed by the mystical shimmering of northern lights - all framed by the frost on the window. Jean E. Pendziwol's lyrical poem reflects a deep appreciation of the magic of a northern winter night where, even as a child slumbers, the world outside does not rest but continues its own natural rhythms. Isabelle Arsenault's spare, beautifully rendered illustrations, with their subtle but striking use of color, make us feel that we too are experiencing the enchantment of that northern night. They simultaneously evoke winter's nighttime life and the cozy warmth and security of a beloved child's sleep.

With passionate insight, wry humor, and an adventurous spirit, once again Peart offers a collection of open letters that take readers on the road, behind the scenes, and into the inner workings of an ever-inquisitive mind. These popular stories, originally posted on Peart’s website, are now collected and contextualized with a new introduction and conclusion in this beautifully designed collector’s volume.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

"Things Near and Far" was is the second part of Arthur Machen's autobiography. The first part is contained in "Far Off Things" (1922) and the third in "The London Adventure" (1924). Arthur Machen (1863 - 1947) was a Welsh author and renowned mystic during the 1890s and early 20th century who garnered literary acclaim for his contributions to the supernatural, horror, and fantasy fiction genres. His seminal novella "The Great God Pan" (1890) has become a classic of horror fiction, with Stephen King describing it as one of the best horror stories ever written in the English language. Other notable fans of his gruesome tales include William Butler Yeats and Arthur Conan Doyle; and his work has been compared to that of Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde. "The Glorious Mystery" is not to be missed by those with an interest in the life and work of this seminal writer. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
