<b>A faded farmhouse, a devoted dog. One special summer.</b><br /><br />Melinda is already at a crossroads when the “for rent” sign beckons her down a dusty gravel lane. Facing forty, single and downsized from her stellar career at a big-city ad agency, she’s struggling to start over when a phone call brings her home to rural Iowa. <br /><br />It's not long before she moves to the country, takes on a rundown farm and its headstrong animals, and lands behind the counter of her family’s hardware store in the community of Prosper, whose motto is “The Great Little Town That Didn’t.” And just like the sprawling garden she tends under the summer sun, Melinda begins to thrive. But when storm clouds arrive on her horizon, can she hold on to the new life she's worked so hard to create?<br /><br />Filled with memorable characters, from a big-hearted farm dog to the weather-obsessed owner of the local co-op, “Growing Season” celebrates the twists and turns of small-town life. Discover the heartwarming series that’s filled with new friends, fresh starts and second chances.<br />

<b>A new year brings new challenges … and the chance to make a dream come true.</b> <br /><br />Melinda hopes to spend January by the fireplace, paging through the seed catalogs’ promises of spring, while the snow drifts around her cozy farmhouse. After all, the slower pace of rural life was one of the reasons she’d left the city behind. <br /><br />Instead, she must face her fears when the worst of winter’s threats surround her door. Braving blizzards to care for her animals, thawing her acreage’s water lines, and anxiously watching over the pregnant sheep in her barn fill her shorter days and longer nights. She trudges on because of Horace’s offer: He’ll sell her the farm in the spring if she still wants to stay.<br /><br />But as winter tightens its grip on the heartland, Melinda's biggest tests are still to come. When a series of events threatens to break her heart and shatter her hopes, can she find the courage to see the season through?<br />

<p><b>History has portrayed Australia’s First Peoples, the Aboriginals, as hunter-gatherers who lived on an empty, uncultivated land. History is wrong.</b></p> <p>In this seminal book, Bruce Pascoe uncovers evidence that long before the arrival of white men, Aboriginal people across the continent were building dams and wells; planting, irrigating, and harvesting seeds, and then preserving the surplus and storing it in houses, sheds, or secure vessels; and creating elaborate cemeteries and manipulating the landscape. All of these behaviours were inconsistent with the hunter-gatherer tag, which turns out to have been a convenient lie that worked to justify dispossession.</p> <p>Using compelling evidence from the records and diaries of early Australian explorers and colonists, he reveals that Aboriginal systems of food production and land management have been blatantly understated in modern retellings of early Aboriginal history, and that a new look at Australia’s past is required — for the benefit of us all.</p> <p><i>Dark Emu</i>, a bestseller in Australia, won both the Book of the Year Award and the Indigenous Writer’s Prize in the New South Wales Premier’s Literary Awards.</p>

<b>A “fascinating and well-documented social history” of American beer, from the immigrants who invented it to the upstart microbrewers who revived it (<i>Chicago Tribune</i>).</b><br /><br /> Grab a pint and settle in with <i>Ambitious</i><i>Brew</i>, the fascinating, first-ever history of American beer. Included here are the stories of ingenious German immigrant entrepreneurs like Frederick Pabst and Adolphus Busch, titans of nineteenth-century industrial brewing who introduced the pleasures of beer gardens to a nation that mostly drank rum and whiskey; the temperance movement (one activist declared that “the worst of all our German enemies are Pabst, Schlitz, Blatz, and Miller”); Prohibition; and the twentieth-century passion for microbrews.<br />  <br /> Historian Maureen Ogle tells a wonderful tale of the American dream—and the great American brew.<br />  <br /> “As much a painstakingly researched microcosm of American entrepreneurialism as it is a love letter to the country’s favorite buzz-producing beverage . . . ‘Ambitious Brew’ goes down as brisk and refreshingly as, well, you know.” —<i>New York Post</i>
