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

social and economic history.” —Boston Magazine What do we actually know about stone walls? Who built

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 histori- cal record shows that many were built by slaves, Indians, indentured servants, and children. Sermons in Stone is the surprising and illu- minating 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 draw- ings 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 publica- tions. Allport lives with her family in Katonah, NY.

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 protect- ing 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 pub- lic 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.

Cat Urbigkit is an award-winning author and photographer whose home base is on a western Wyoming ranch. She is a correspondent for a variety of media in the western region and a con- tributing writer to Stephen Bodio’s Querencia, a blog about wild and working animals and working landscapes around the globe.

W 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 thereaf- ter 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, cook- ies, cakes, brownies, pies, tarts, and pastries. For more than 200 years King Arthur Flour has been in the business of making the highest qual- ity key ingredient in all of baking: flour. They’ve done decades of experimentation and research in

The Baker’s Companion, a kind of culmination of generations of loving work, brings you more than 350 recipes that teach you which ingredi- ents work together as well as which don’t and why. It is this knowledge that will allow you to unleash your own creativity and to experiment in the kitchen. You’ll get a complete overview of ingredients in chapters on flours, sweeteners, leaveners, fats, and more. You’ll find information on substitu- tions and variations, as well as troubleshooting advice from the pros at King Arthur. Recipes are

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 night- mares.” Rick Broussard at New Hampshire Maga- zine 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 simi- larly 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 har- vested brains of dead killers to horror movie film- ing 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.

J. W. Ocker runs www.oddthingsiveseen.com, where he chronicles his visits to various oddi- ties of culture, art, and history. His writings have been featured in Rue Morgue magazine, CNN. com, American Exorcist: Critical Essays on Wil- liam Peter Blatty, and Studies in Australian Weird

For over 40 years Virginia’s tourism slogan has been “Virginia is for lovers,” but both resident pooches and visiting Fidos know that it really should be “Vir- ginia is for dog lovers”! Whether they’re relaxing on the river, checking out the crabs on Chesapeake Bay, or hiking through the beautiful state and national parks, four-legged visitors are welcomed warmly. After all, Virginia is one of only a handful of states that has an official dog breed, the American Foxhound, a direct descen- dant of the hounds that George Washington bred to indulge his passion for foxhunting. Virginia’s historic love affair with canines continues today, with more than 1,000 pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, attrac- tions, 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 and inns that offer canine-inspired Southern hos- pitality, verdant vineyards that beg for a long stroll, battlefields, beaches, and an array of dining and entertainment options that you can enjoy with your best friend. Virginia truly is for dog lovers! Ginger Warder, author of Fido’s Florida (Countryman), is a freelance writer specializing in arts, entertainment, travel with pets, and European destinations. She is a member of the Society of American Travel Writers and lives in St. Petersburg with her two dogs, Tipsy and Max.

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.

of spring and summer wildflowers and other plants. When it was fi rst published, Roger Tory

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-by- step key to plant identifications and an illustrated glossary of common plant parts and botanical terms make this book an even more valuable re- source. 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.

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, constipa- tion, 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.
