<b>“Tallamy lays out all you need to know to participate in one of the great conservation projects of our time. Read it and get started!” —Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of <i>The Sixth Extinction</i></b><br /><br /> Douglas W. Tallamy’s first book, <i>Bringing Nature Home,</i> awakened thousands of readers to an urgent situation: wildlife populations are in decline because the native plants they depend on are fast disappearing. His solution? Plant more natives. In this new book, Tallamy takes the next step and outlines his vision for a grassroots approach to conservation.<i> Nature’s Best Hope</i> shows how homeowners everywhere can turn their yards into conservation corridors that provide wildlife habitats. Because this approach relies on the initiatives of private individuals, it is immune from the whims of government policy. Even more important, it’s practical, effective, and easy—you will walk away with specific suggestions you can incorporate into your own yard.<br />  <br /> If you’re concerned about doing something good for the environment, <i>Nature’s Best Hope</i> is the blueprint you need. By acting now, you can help preserve our precious wildlife—and the planet—for future generations.<br />

<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>

<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.
