  1. Back in America after twenty years in Britain, Bill Bryson decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. The AT offers an astonishing landscape of silent forests and sparkling lakes--and to a writer with the comic genius of Bill Bryson, it also provides endless opportunities to witness the majestic silliness of his fellow human beings. For a start there's the gloriously out-of-shape Stephen Katz, a buddy from Iowa along for the walk. Despite Katz's overwhelming desire to find cozy restaurants, he and Bryson eventually settle into their stride, and while on the trail they meet a bizarre assortment of hilarious characters. But A Walk in the Woods is more than just a laugh-out-loud hike. Bryson's acute eye is a wise witness to this beautiful but fragile trail, and as he tells its fascinating history, he makes a moving plea for the conservation of America's last great wilderness. An adventure, a comedy, and a celebration, A Walk in the Woods is destined to become a modern classic of travel literature. About the AuthorBILL BRYSON was born in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1951. He settled in England in 1977, where he lived for many years with his English wife and four children before moving with his family to America. In 2003 the Brysons came back to England where they intend to remain. He is the bestselling author of THE LOST CONTINENT, MOTHER TONGUE, NEITHER HERE NOR THERE, MADE IN AMERICA, NOTES FROM A SMALL ISLAND, A WALK IN THE WOODS, NOTES FROM A BIG COUNTRY and DOWN UNDER, as well as, most recently, A SHORT HISTORY OF NEARLY EVERYTHING, which won the Aventis Prize 2004 and was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize.

  5. Nordic Light is a follow-up to Simon's successful first title, The New Nordic. In this new Nordic style, vegetables and their method of preparation are paramount (though, of course, meat does still feature). Generally it is three or four components brought together to create a light dish, whether it be a cold salad, topped with a sauce, or a half-submerged broth. It is different to the first book in that this title is more about light, clever, clean, simple, modern and delicious food. Nordic classics are being omitted and rather than keeping the ingredients list entirely Northern European, Simon has included food from all cuisines. Some recipe examples include: rye crepes with banana and salted caramel; cauliflower and buckwheat cakes with spiced tofu scramble; gravlax and iceberg sandwich with salad, ymerdrys; flourless almond tea fibre balls rolled in pollen and hemp; icelandic flatbread served with cashew cream and caviar; flourless matcha millet and blueberry buns; raw cinammon balls; kelp noodles with smoked mackerel, radish, elderflower vinaigrette; quinoa caviar, fresh cheese and green salad; salmon carpaccio and cucumber waldorf; homemade nutella; red cabbage chutney; and one-sided salmon with autumn slaw. As with The New Nordic, Simon's stunning photography and styling is a standout feature, with landscape shots featuring the seasons.About the Author Simon Bajada is an internationally acclaimed chef, photographer and food stylist. Originally from Melbourne, he now lives in Sweden with his Scandinavian wife and two sons. Simon met his wife while working in a kitchen in Stockholm, and his interest in the food of her homeland grew form there. He got a sense of the produce used and the balance of flavours - a long time before contemporary Nordic cuisine was understood by the international culinary community as it is today. He says he has found parallels in new Nordic and contemporary Australian food. While the taste differs due to ingredients, the idea of balan

  6. A classic of sportswriting - about a season spent following a town and a team's hopes and shattered dreams - and now a major Hollywood film In the state of Texas American football is a religion. And nowhere is more fanatical about its football than the small town of Odessa. There, every Friday night from September to November, a bunch of seventeen-year-old kids play their hearts out for the honour of their high school. In front of 20,000 people. In 1988 H.G. Bissinger spent a season in Odessa discovering just what makes a town pin its hopes on eleven boys on a football field. He lived with the students, coaches and townspeople who dedicate their lives to their team, sharing their joys and triumphs, their pains, injuries and bitter disappointments. He returned with a compassionate but hard-eyed story of a town riven by money, race and class, where a high school can spend more on medical supplies for its athletic program than on its English department. Friday Night Lights is one of the best books about sport ever written. It is the story of how dreams and reality collide, at once glorious and immensely sad. Because for the 30-odd boys of the Permian Panthers, these days will have been the best of their lives.About the AuthorH. G. Bissinger has won the Pulitzer Prize, the Livingston Award, the National Headliner Award, and the American Bar Association's Silver Gavel for his reporting.

  15. Cheese making is a wonderful adventure and very rewarding. Much like people who wish to make their own bread, grow their own vegetables or make their own wines and beers, many cheese makers know that you cannot replace the quality of handmade cheeses with the mass produced supermarket cheeses available today. Plus, you can make various boutique cheeses at home which aren't readily available at the store. Additionally, the importance of eating foods without chemical additives, artificial colourings and preservatives is growing, as the awareness of the negative effects of theses non-food additives increases. As with other foods, when you make your own cheeses you control the ingredients and can guarantee that you are eating pure, whole foods and not some man made synthetic product that you really should not to be putting into your body in the first place. While there is a specific science to cheese making, it is also an art form and a craft. The more cheese you make, the better you will get at it. Once you have mastered the basics, you can begin to experiment and create your own specialty cheeses to suit your personal tastes. Hundreds of different cheeses have been developed across the world over centuries by artisans who have added their own personal magic to the craft. These cheese makers have contributed to the creation of an incredibly rich culture of cheese making, benefiting both the cheese maker and the cheese consumer. You too can create your own cheeses in your kitchen with minimal equipment for everyday consumption and special occasions.

  17. "I don't know if people will ever be able to talk to animals the way Doctor Doolittle could, or whether animals will be able to talk back. Maybe science will have something to say about that. But I do know people can learn to "talk" to animals, and to hear what animals have to say, better than they do now. "--From "Animals in Translation" Why would a cow lick a tractor? Why are collies getting dumber? Why do dolphins sometimes kill for fun? How can a parrot learn to spell? How did wolves teach man to evolve? Temple Grandin draws upon a long, distinguished career as an animal scientist and her own experiences with autism to deliver an extraordinary message about how animals act, think, and feel. She has a perspective like that of no other expert in the field, which allows her to offer unparalleled observations and groundbreaking ideas. People with autism can often think the way animals think, putting them in the perfect position to translate "animal talk." Grandin is a faithful guide into their world, exploring animal pain, fear, aggression, love, friendship, communication, learning, and, yes, even animal genius. The sweep of Animals in Translation is immense and will forever change the way we think about animals. *includes a Behavior and Training Troubleshooting Guide Among its provocative ideas, the book: argues that language is not a requirement for consciousness--and that animals do have consciousness applies the autism theory of "hyper-specificity" to animals, showing that animals and autistic people are so sensitive to detail that they "can't see the forest for the trees"--a talent as well as a "deficit" explores the "interpreter" in the normal human brain that filters out detail, leaving people blind to much of the reality that surrounds them--a reality animals and autistic people see, sometimes all too clearlyexplains how animals have "superhuman" skills: animals have animal geniuscompares animals to autistic savants, declaring that animals may in fact be aut

  18. Colour is powerful – it can change our moods or raise our spirits. It can be positively life-enhancing, yet so many of us struggle with choosing the right shades for our home, instead falling back on a safe but unadventurous palette of bland neutrals. In this, his third book, celebrated interior stylist Hans Blomquist reveals his lifelong passion for colour and the way in which it can affect our emotions. Colour can soothe, enchant or excite. And as Hans demonstrates, it has the ability to render rooms cool and calming, dynamic and stimulating or moody and intriguing. As ever, Hans draws his inspiration from the treasures of the natural world, exploring shades from the dazzling optic white of newly fallen snow to the fiery crimson heart of a newly unfurled poppy and the inky canopy of the midnight sky. Divided into five sections – Dark, Pale, Soft, Natural and Bright – In the Mood for Colour will make you see colour in a completely different light.About the AuthorA leading art director and interior stylist, Hans Blomquist is one of a handful of stylists worldwide who are highly sought after by prestigious brands.
