<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> NOTABLE BOOK</b><br />  <br /> A modern classic of personal journalism, <i>The Orchid Thief</i> is Susan Orlean’s wickedly funny, elegant, and captivating tale of an amazing obsession. Determined to clone an endangered flower—the rare ghost orchid <i>Polyrrhiza lindenii—</i>a deeply eccentric and oddly attractive man named John Laroche leads Orlean on an unforgettable tour of America’s strange flower-selling subculture, through Florida’s swamps and beyond, along with the Seminoles who help him and the forces of justice who fight him. In the end, Orlean—and the reader—will have more respect for underdog determination and a powerful new definition of passion.<br />  <br /> In this new edition, coming fifteen years after its initial publication and twenty years after she first met the “orchid thief,” Orlean revisits this unforgettable world, and the route by which it was brought to the screen in the film <i>Adaptation,</i> in a new retrospective essay.<br /><br /><b>Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more.</b><br />  <br /> <b>Praise for <i>The Orchid Thief</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “Stylishly written, whimsical yet sophisticated, quirkily detailed and full of empathy . . . <i>The Orchid Thief</i> shows [Orlean’s] gifts in full bloom.”<b>—<i>The New York Times Book Review </i></b><br />  <br /> “Fascinating . . . an engrossing journey [full] of theft, hatred, greed, jealousy, madness, and backstabbing.”<b>—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “Orlean’s snapshot-vivid, pitch-perfect prose . . . is fast becoming one of our national treasures.”<b>—<i>The Washington Post Book World</i></b><br /> <i> </i><br /> “Orlean’s gifts [are] her ear for the self-skewing dialogue, her eye for the incongruous, convincing detail, and her Didion-like deftness in description.”<b>—<i>Boston Sunday Globe</i></b><br />  <br /> “A swashbuckling piece of reporting that celebrates some virtues that made America great.”<b>—<i>The Wall Street Journal</i></b>

<b>“One of the distinguished gardening books of our time,”</b><b> from the #1 <i>New York Times</i>–bestselling author of <i>The Omnivore’s Dilemma</i> (<i>USA Today</i>).</b><br />  <br /><i>Chosen by the American Horticultural Society as one of the 75 greatest books ever written about gardening</i><br />  <br /> After Michael Pollan bought an old Connecticut dairy farm, he planted a garden and attempted to follow Thoreau’s example: do not impose your will upon the wilderness, the woodchucks, or the weeds. That ethic did not, of course, work. But neither did pesticides or firebombing the woodchuck burrow. So Michael Pollan began to think about the troubled borders between nature and contemporary life.<br />  <br /> The result is a funny, profound, and beautifully written book in the finest tradition of American nature writing. It inspires thoughts on the war of the roses; sex and class conflict in the garden; virtuous composting; the American lawn; seed catalogs, and the politics of planting a tree. A blend of meditation, autobiography, and social history, <i>Second Nature</i>, from the renowned author of <i>The Botany of Desire</i>, <i>In Defense of Food</i>, and other bestsellers, is “as delicious a meditation on one man’s relationship with the Earth as any you are likely to come upon” (<i>The New York Times Book Review</i>).<br />  <br /> “Usually when Americans have wanted to explore their relationship to nature they’ve gone to the wilderness, or the woods. Michael Pollan went to the garden instead . . . and he’s returned with a quirky and pleasing book.” —Annie Dillard<br />  <br /> “A joy to read.” —<i>Los Angeles Times</i>

<i>Mycelium Running</i> is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet. That’s right: growing more <i>mushrooms</i> may be the best thing we can do to save the environment, and in this groundbreaking text from mushroom expert Paul Stamets, you’ll find out how.<br /> <br />The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called “mycelium”--the fruit of which are mushrooms--recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that we can capitalize on mycelium’s digestive power and target it to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests and gardens (mycoforestry and myco-gardening). <br /> <br />In this comprehensive guide, you’ll find chapters detailing each of these four exciting branches of what Stamets has coined “mycorestoration,” as well as chapters on the medicinal and nutritional properties of mushrooms, inoculation methods, log and stump culture, and species selection for various environmental purposes. Heavily referenced and beautifully illustrated, this book is destined to be a classic reference for bemushroomed generations to come.
