Jane Goodall blends her experience in nature with her enthusiasm for botany to give readers a deeper understanding of the world around us and delivers an enlightening story of the wonders we can find in our own backyards.

 "Square Foot Gardening Answer Book," by Mel Bartholomew.
Using proven techniques, appliances and approaches, this book will put more harvest on your table, with no additional garden beds. For more than 30 years Mel Bartholomew has been answering questions from Square Foot Gardeners, and this book presents the very best of that information.

A colorful guide covering the basics of replacing a traditional lawn with a wide variety of easy-care, no-mow, drought-tolerant, money-saving options that will appeal to today's busy, eco-conscious homeowner.
