The popularity of natural building has grown by leaps and bounds, spurred by a grassroots desire for housing that is healthy, affordable, and environmentally responsible. While there are many books available on specific methods such as straw-bale construction, cob, or timber framing, there are few resources which introduce the reader to the entire scope of this burgeoning field. Fully revised and updated, The Art of Natural Building is the complete and user-friendly introduction to natural building for everyone from the do-it-yourselfer to architects and designers. This collection of articles from over fifty leaders in the field is now stunningly illustrated with over two-hundred full-color photographs of natural buildings from around the world.

Clearly written, logically organized, and beautifully illustrated, The Art of Natural Building is the encyclopedia of natural building. Joseph F. Kennedy is a designer, builder, writer, artist, educator, and co-founder of Builders Without Borders. Michael G.

Many of us want to increase our self-sufficiency, but few have access to the ideal five sunny, gently sloping acres of rich, loamy, well-drained soil. Jenni Blackmore presents a highly entertaining, personal account of how permaculture can be practiced in adverse conditions, allowing anyone to learn to live more sustainably in a less-than-perfect world. With a rallying cry of "If we can do it, you can too," she distills the wisdom of twenty years of trial and error into a valuable teaching tool. The perfect antidote to dense, high-level technical manuals, Permaculture for the Rest of Us presents the fundamental principles of this sometimes confusing concept in a humorous, reader-friendly way. Each chapter focuses on a specific method or technique, interspersing straightforward explanations with the author's own experiences. Learn how to successfully retrofit even the smallest homestead using skills such as: No-till vs. till gardening, composting, and soil-building Natural pest control and integrating small livestock Basic greenhouse construction Harvesting, preservation, and more Ideal for urban dreamers, suburbanites and country-dwellers alike, this inspirational and instructional "encouragement manual" is packed with vibrant photographs documenting the author's journey from adversity to abundance. Jenni Blackmore is a farmer, artist, writer and certified Permaculture Design Consultant who built her house on a rocky, windswept island off the coast of Nova Scotia almost twenty-five years ago and has been stumbling along the road to self-sufficient living ever since. A successful micro-farmer, she produces most of her family's meat, eggs, fruit, and vegetables, in spite of often-challenging conditions.

Dornröschen, Schneewittchen, Aschenputtel – Prinzessinnen sind die Heldinnen unserer Kindheit, stets tugendhaft und glücklich bis ans Lebensende ... Von wegen.

Dieses Lesebuch versammelt Geschichten von echten Prinzessinnen, die alles andere als märchenhaft sind. So z.B. von Olga, »der Wilden«, die mehr als 5.000 Menschen auf dem Gewissen hat.

Orangutans are among our nearest relatives in the animal realm. They are approximately 97 percent genetically identical, highly intelligent, thoughtful and inventive. They have culture and a sense of beauty, and they resemble us in mimicry, gesturing and many other respects. The red apes, which live only on Borneo and Sumatra, are as much "human" as humans and therefore probably too good for this world. They are as strong as bears, but they do not fight against poachers and the bands of men logging for the palm oil concerns -- and are remorselessly slaughtered. This is an uncommon portrait of the orangutan's reality, that goes much farther than simple zoology. Based on the singular personal experiences of Dr. Willie Smits, who probably knows orangutans best in the world, the book reveals the well-established but pitiless reasons for the murder of our shaggy cousins -- and shows where there is nevertheless still hope. -- From the book jacket, translated by the cataloger.
