"A dazzling display of humanistic erudition, wit, and practical culinary advice. Ballerini's living herbarium reinitiates modern readers living in the concrete manswarm into the joys of foraging, gathering, and savoring herbs, flowers, and berries. Its wide-ranging historical context, a veritable documentary of poets and chroniclers of past and present, is a learned celebration of nature's bounty. Practical and flavorful recipes for each plant transport the 'weeds' from the field to the palate and enhance a narrative enriched by splendid complementary footnotes."—Albert Sonnenfeld, Series Director, Arts of the Table "Weeds indeed. A guide as witty as he is erudite, Luigi Ballerini has given us a remarkable compendium of the wild greens, along with their flowers and fruits, that people have foraged and eaten for millennia. Once the food of the poor, such ingredients are now in high demand. Gathering greens both familiar—such as mint or borage—and obscure—milk thistle and wallrocket—Ballerini draws upon a diverse cast of authors to attest or dispute their real or alleged medicinal powers. Just as important, he never neglects to suggest how they taste or to present fine recipes so that we can savor them for ourselves."—Carol Field, author of The Italian Baker "The scholar and poet Luigi Ballerini has given us a mouthwatering treasure of inventive Italian recipes for foraged wild plants adapted for the American locavore kitchen (including ten for borage alone, as well as nettle and purslane frittatas, and prickly pear risotto). This elegantly illustrated volume is peppered with humor and tastefully seasoned with a wealth of cultural, historical, and scientific sources and information. A Feast of Weeds is food for both the palate and the mind."—Jean-Claude Carron, University of California, Los Angeles

From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Jamie Thornton. "Thrilling...keeps you reading and wanting more." "I couldn't put this down." "Left me hungry for the next book." Discover a thrilling post-apocalyptic ride that follows a group of runaways as they search for a friend in a world gone mad over hope for a cure. WHO WILL SURVIVE? WHO WILL STAY HUMAN? Mary knows how to thrive on the street. She makes it her mission to keep other kids away from everyday monsters. But when she's attacked by a crazed man clutching a bloody heart she realizes-there's a new kind of monster in town. A single drop of blood, and now Mary's one of the infected. Unless she can stop the virus and save her friends, the new monster in town might just be her. Interview with the Author Q - So what makes the Feast of Weeds series special? A - It's a mix of things, really. When I set out to write the series, I wanted to create something that I would love to read. Since I'm drawn to the post-apocalyptic genre, especially dystopian novels, that's where I started. I thought about the end-of-the-world books I've loved-you know, classic Stephen King, Octavia Butler, Max Brooks. I've always found thrilling those stories with big epidemics that reinvent the world and show what characters are really made of. I also love getting into some of the science, like genetic engineering, that would make the situations in a book plausible. Any story that promises me an intense, dark adventure is going to get my vote. The Feast of Weeds series is a mix of these genres. I wanted to create an intense, fast-paced adventure with strong female protagonists. I also wanted to do something different than the standard survive the zombie-hordes stories-though I've enjoyed plenty of those stories too. In Feast of Weeds, you're going to have competing pathogens, and what might seem straightforward at first becomes something completely different later on. Even though my cast of characters are all teenagers I've definitely had plenty of adults write me about how much they've enjoyed the series. I think Feast of Weeds hits the sweet spot of older Young Adult that will appeal to plenty of adults too. Overall, no matter what your age, the Feast of Weeds series is designed to keep you turning those pages. Q - What order should I read the books in? A - I've written the series with the plan of having readers go through the series in order. Technically each book is a stand-alone story, but I think the complete series would be most enjoyable in the following sequence: --Germination (prequel short novel) --Contamination --Infestation --Eradication Q - Why should readers give these books a try? A - Even though Germination is a prequel short novel, so, a shorter read than many readers like, it hit #5 on the New York Times bestseller list and #8 on the USA Today bestseller list in January 2017. The Feast of Weeds series is a fast, dark ride that turns the stereotypical zombie genre on its head! I like surprises and mysteries and thrills, so you'll find a lot of that in the series...nothing is what it seems.

Urania Cabral, a New York lawyer, returns to the Dominican Republic after a lifelong self-imposed exile. Once she is back in her homeland, the elusive feeling of terror that has overshadowed her whole life suddenly takes shape. Urania's own story alternates with the powerful climax of dictator Rafael Trujillo's reign. In 1961, Trujillo's decadent inner circle (which includes Urania's soon-to-be disgraced father) enjoys the luxuries of privilege while the rest of the nation lives in fear and deprivation. As Trujillo clings to power, a plot to push the Dominican Republic into the future is being formed. But after the murder of its hated dictator, the Goat, is carried out, the Dominican Republic is plunged into the nightmare of a bloody and uncertain aftermath. Now, thirty years later, Urania reveals how her own family was fatally wounded by the forces of history. In The Feast of the Goat Mario Vargas Llosa eloquently explores the effects of power and violence on the lives of both the oppressors and those they victimized. 'The Feast of the Goat will stand out as the great emblematic novel of Latin America's twentieth century and removes One Hundred Years of Solitude of that title.' Times Literary Supplement

This package includes the complete three-volume set of the Christ in the Feasts series: Christ in the Passover, Christ in the Feast of Pentecost, and Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles. In Christ in the Passover, Ceil and Moishe Rosen explore the meaning behind the different elements of the feast such as the bitter herbs, salty water, a sweet apple mixture, and the shankbone of a lamb. This book invites you to enter the celebration of Passover, rich with history and significance for both Jew and Gentile. God wasn't finished working in the lives of His people after the waters of the Red Sea parted. Both past and future deliverance are celebrated in this solemn and joyful feast. Through Christ in the Passover, you’ll trace God’s involvement through the history of this holy day—from the first Passover, all the way to the modern Seder. And in the revised editions of this inviting book, the authors show you how the death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah are forever interwoven with the Passover and its symbolism. In Christ in the Feast of Pentecost, this engrossing book will quickly capture your attention as you realize the excitement leading up to this festive occasion and the richness it will bring to your understanding of both the Old and New Testament references. The authors treat us to the sense of anticipation that "cannot be overstated" as their insightful account of traditions leading up to this holiday unfolds...a boy's first haircut, bonfires, sweet treats, artful paper cutting, firstfruits. Shavnot will lead believers in Jesus into greater understanding of the significance of the omer, the waiting period, which foreshadows our watching for His return and gives further meaning to our work of building His kingdom. In Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles, David Brickner will captivate you with the rich imagery of this great festival. From the feast's origins of being celebrated with temporary shelters to modern-day observances--and even its meaning for heaven--you'll be enriched by this fascinating account.

In A Feast of Creatures, Craig Williamson recasts nearly one hundred Old English riddles of the Exeter Book into a modern verse mode that yokes the cadences of Aelfric with the sprung rhythm of Gerard Manley Hopkins. Like the early English riddlers before him, Williamson gives voice to the nightingale, plow, ox, phallic onion, and storm-wind. In lean and taut language he offers us mead disguised as a mighty wrestler, the sword as a celibate thane, the silver wine-cup as a seductress, the horn transformed from head-warrior to ink-belly or battle-singer. In his notes and commentary he gives us possible and probable solutions, sources, and analogues, a shrewd sense of literary play, and traces the literary and cultural contexts in which each riddle may be viewed. In his introduction, Williamson traces for us the history of riddles and riddle scholarship.

The story of a feast two years in the making, from the farmer who harvested the vegetables, raised the animals, and prepared the meal. In Growing a Farmer, Kurt Timmermeister recounted the toil and joy of wrestling an empty plot of land on Vashon Island, Washington, into a dairy farm. Now he tells the story of a feast made from only what the farm provides. But the story of the meal begins two years earlier with the birth of a calf, Alice. When she is grown, Alice will produce the cream to be churned into butter, made into sauce Béarnaise, and served alongside poached eggs and kale gathered the morning of the feast. Along the way we meet Leda, who trades onion seedlings for Kurt’s cheese; Michiko, who forages the white chanterelles for the antipasti course; and Bill, whose large, thin-skinned tomatoes will form the basis of the tomato upside-down cake. Rich in detail, resonant in story, Growing a Feast depicts the effort behind every meal, the farm that comes before every table.

In 1640, French explorer LaSalle was astonished to find a royal Native American kingdom northeast of New Orleans. Moving along the social and political wire, many of that Nachay tribe owned plantations with both white and black slaves by the early 1700s. One hundred and fifty years later, Major Elias Paix and his wife, Princess Melissa, along with the chief of the tribe, sold their plantations to purchase a paddle steamer and supplies in order to establish a new town as the capital of an all-Indian state. Paix fought for the South alongside Robert E. Lee, and after the war he traveled with Chief Mather to establish the town of Yellow Creek. A few years later Prince Dell, son of the Major and Melissa, sets off on the expedition at age fourteen. He exhibits unwavering duty to his tribe and has to cope with the fallout from a hasty decision made in disobedience, the loss of a beloved family member, and white men encroaching upon this new settlement. In fulfilling his unique punishment, Dell embarks upon a political career that may just facilitate much-needed unity among the Nachay tribe and other Indians.
