<p><strong>The first book in <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author Peter Wohlleben’s The Mysteries of Nature Trilogy. Book two, <em>The Inner Life of Animals</em>, is available now, and the third book, <em>The Secret Wisdom of Nature</em>, is coming in Spring 2019.</strong></p><br /><p>Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland.<br /><br />After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.<br /><br /><em>Includes a Note From a Forest Scientist, by Dr.Suzanne Simard</em></p><p><em>Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Institute.</em></p>

<b><i>NATIONAL BESTSELLER</i><br /><br />"A profound book.... It will break your heart but also leave you with hope." —J.D. Vance, author of <i>Hillbilly Elegy</i></b><br /><br /><b>"[A] deeply empathetic book." —<i>The Economist</i></b><br /><br /><b>With stark photo essays and unforgettable true stories, Chris Arnade cuts through "expert" pontification on inequality, addiction, and poverty to allow those who have been left behind to define themselves on their own terms.</b><br /><br />After abandoning his Wall Street career, Chris Arnade decided to document poverty and addiction in the Bronx. He began interviewing, photographing, and becoming close friends with homeless addicts, and spent hours in drug dens and McDonald's. Then he started driving across America to see how the rest of the country compared. He found the same types of stories everywhere, across lines of race, ethnicity, religion, and geography. <br /><br />The people he got to know, from Alabama and California to Maine and Nevada, gave Arnade a new respect for the dignity and resilience of what he calls America's Back Row--those who lack the credentials and advantages of the so-called meritocratic upper class. The strivers in the Front Row, with their advanced degrees and upward mobility, see the Back Row's values as worthless. They scorn anyone who stays in a dying town or city as foolish, and mock anyone who clings to religion or tradition as naïve.<br /><br />As Takeesha, a woman in the Bronx, told Arnade, she wants to be seen she sees herself: "a prostitute, a mother of six, and a child of God." This book is his attempt to help the rest of us truly see, hear, and respect millions of people who've been left behind.

<b>“F</b><b>ocuses on the lives of several prostitutes who worked in Death Valley area boomtowns between the 1870s and the early 1900s . . . Colorful and intriguing”</b><b> (<i>Pahrump Valley Times</i>).</b><br />  <br /> From the 1870s to the turn of the century, while countless men gambled their fortunes in Death Valley’s mines, many bold women capitalized on the boom-and-bust lifestyle and established saloons and brothels. These lively ladies were clever entrepreneurs and fearless adventurers but also mothers, wives, and respected members of their communities. Madam Lola Travis was one of the wealthiest single women in Inyo County in the 1870s. Known as “Diamond Tooth Lil,” Evelyn Hildegard was a poor immigrant girl who became a western legend. Local author and historian Robin Flinchum chronicles the lives of these women and many others who were unafraid to live outside the bounds of polite society and risk everything for a better future in the forbidding Death Valley desert.<br />  <br /> Includes photos!<br />  <br /> “Flinchum’s lively prose and detailed descriptions bring these women into focus, and provide a historically accurate and interesting overview of Death Valley’s pioneering mining era.” —<i>Sierra Wave Media</i><br />  <br /> “A thoroughly entertaining and highly enlightening account of the wild Death Valley boom camps’ daring red light ladies . . . A very enjoyable and engaging book. A great read!” —Richard Lingenfelter, author of <i>Death Valley & the Amargosa: A Land of Illusion</i>
