Sermons in Stone
The Stone Walls of New England and New York
Susan Allport
“A well-written, fascinating contribution to the region’s social and economic history.”
—Boston Magazine
What do we actually know about stone walls?
Who built them, and why were they built? Stone
walls are not simply monuments to the skill of
Yankee farmers or quaint reminders of a simpler
time; they are ultimately utilitarian. The historical record shows that many were built by slaves,
Indians, indentured servants, and children.
Sermons in Stone is the surprising and illuminating history of stone walls. It is a story that
began in the Ice Age and was shaped by the need
to divide properties in the nineteenth century,
by conflicts between Native Americans and
colonists over land use, and by America’s waves
of immigration and suburbanization.
“Who would think that a history of that humble
workaday structure, the stone wall, would be so
full of the fascinating, the peculiar, the downright
eccentric? But here it is, laid out in a sprightly
style and beautifully illustrated by the ink drawings of David Howell.” —Dallas Morning News
Susan Allport is an award-winning writer specializing in science, travel, and food. Her books
include The Primal Feast and A Natural History of Parenting and her articles have been published in
the New York Times, Gastronomica, Audubon, and The Missouri Review, among many other publications. Allport lives with her family in Katonah, NY.

Shepherds of Coyote Rocks
Public Lands, Private Herds and the Natural World
Cat Urbigkit
One woman’s season on the Wyoming range
Cat Urbigkit journeys alone to spend a season
on Wyoming’s open range, tending to a flock
of domestic sheep as they give birth amid the
challenges of nature—from severe weather to a
wealth of predators. Her only companions are
the guardian animals, big dogs and a pair of
burros named Bill and Hillary, that repeatedly
prove their worth in their devotion to protecting the flock.
Urbigkit offers interesting reflections on
the role of pastoralists around the globe and
on the controversial issue in the western U.S.
of private livestock herds being run on public lands. The intimate ways in which abstract
public policy plays out on the open range are
eye-opening.
More than a tale of herding sheep, Shepherds
of Coyote Rocks is an action-packed true story
that reveals the broad spectrum of the human
relationship with nature, from harmony to
rugged adventure.

hen you think of
cookbooks that are
absolutely essential
to one’s kitchen library, tomes
such as The Joy of Cooking and
the Better Homes & Gardens
New Cookbook generally come
to mind. But in the realm of
baking, that one indispensable
volume is The King Arthur Flour
Baker’s Companion.
Originally published ten
years ago—and shortly thereafter honored as the James Beard
Foundation’s Cookbook of the
Year (2003)—this cookbook is
today every bit as relevant as it
was then. And now the modern
classic is in paperback, with its
hundreds of easy and foolproof
recipes, from yeast breads and
sourdoughs to trendy flatbreads
and crackers to family favorites
such as pancakes and waffles.
Leading you through the steps
of leavening, mixing, proofing,
and kneading through shaping
and baking, the experts at King Arthur Flour also
include their best fried doughs, quick breads, batter
breads, biscuits, quiches, cobblers and crisps, cookies, cakes, brownies, pies, tarts, and pastries.
For more than 200 years King Arthur Flour has
been in the business of making the highest quality key ingredient in all of baking: flour. They’ve

The New York Grimpendium
A Guide to Macabre and Ghastly Sites
J. W. Ocker
From the author of The New England Grimpendium comes a new travelogue and insider’s guide to wicked, weird, wonderful New York.
When J. W. Ocker’s first book, The New England
Grimpendium, emerged on the scene, Max
Weinstein of Fangoria.com called it “a travelogue
for those who revel in the glory of their nightmares.” Rick Broussard at New Hampshire Magazine said of it, “I’ve read a dozen books about
New England ghosties and weirdnesses, and this
one is my favorite. It’s also one of the few that
actually came up with stuff I didn’t already know
about.” Now the author of that Lowell Thomas
Award winner has unearthed hundreds of similarly creepy and colorful places in the Empire
State that will make your skin crawl and your
hair stand on end!
Ocker’s essays on these places, some little
known, some area landmarks, include directions
and site information along with entertaining
anecdotes delivered in his signature wry style. It’s
definitely a wild ride from a jar full of the harvested brains of dead killers to horror movie filming sites around the state; from a ships’ graveyard
to lake monster sightings. If it’s in New York and
it’s bizarrely noteworthy or wonderfully wacky,
you’ll find it in The New York Grimpendium.

the beautiful state and national parks, four-legged
visitors are welcomed warmly. After all, Virginia is

love affair with canines continues today, with more
than 1,000 pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, attractions, and events that you and your best furry friend
(BFF) can explore together.
From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the beach,
visitors traveling with their BFFs will find fine hotels

Weeds and Wildflowers in Winter
Lauren Brown
The help you need identifying the dormant but visible vestiges of spring and summer
wildflowers and other plants.
When it was first published, Roger Tory Peterson
said of Wildflowers and Winter Weeds, “This book
will be a joy to those wood-walkers and strollers
who have been puzzled by the skeletal remains of
herbaceous plants that they see in winter.” And
indeed, it has been in print for decades, helping
both wood-walkers and botanists identify and
better understand the weeds we see in winter.
This charming guide identifies more than 135
common species of wildflowers and weeds found
in the northeastern United States. Each plant
is superbly illustrated with a full-page drawing
accompanied by an elegant description of the
plant’s key characteristics. In addition, a step-bystep key to plant identifications and an illustrated
glossary of common plant parts and botanical
terms make this book an even more valuable resource. If you’ve ever wanted to know what those
plants you see sticking up out of the snow are,
you’ll appreciate this lovely, useful book.
Lauren Brown, a graduate of the Yale School
of Forestry, has taught plant identification and
other topics at Yale and for the CT Audubon
Society. She lives in Branford, Connecticut.

The Lahey Clinic
Sophia Gordon
Cancer Center
From the nation’s leading cancer center, a bright, flavorful
cookbook to help patients and their caregivers.
Just as it changes your physical condition and
alters your mental outlook, cancer and its
treatment will transform how you eat. Having a
meal takes on new meaning and can present a
new set of challenges. Dr. Keith Stuart, head of
oncology at the world-renowned Lahey Clinic
in Massachusetts, and his team at the Cancer
Center understand well the difficulty their
patients often have in determining what food
they feel like eating and what food will combat
particular symptoms they may be experiencing.
With recipes thoroughly tested by Dr.
Stuart, himself an accomplished cook, Cooking
Through Cancer is designed to address the most
common symptoms experienced by patients
undergoing treatment—dry mouth, constipation, diarrhea, weight loss, or excessive weight
gain—and is organized and coded so you can
easily identify the right recipe for each need.
More than a helpful reference guide for
patients and caregivers, this book is about
rediscovering the enjoyment of good food that
cancer frequently ruins for us. The meals offered
here are healthy and delicious, and they are also
valuable tools for asserting control over a very
important aspect of our life and health.

The Lahey Clinic Sophia Gordon Cancer
Center is known for its comprehensive, integrated model of total patient care. The Center’s team
believes that the best health care is achieved when
knowledge is continually exchanged and practitioners of different disciplines and perspectives
share their insights. The team strives to provide
the best possible outcome for every patient, delivering the highest quality comprehensive care that
patients expect and deserve.
