When can you find ripe blueberries along the Appalachian Trail in Maryland? Where can you see the air filled with monarch butterflies as they migrate south each autumn? If you want to enjoy nature this weekend, where is the best place to visit? Bryan MacKay can tell you. Written as an almanac, A Year across Maryland invites you to explore the natural world throughout the year, from watching bald eagles nesting in January to harvesting mistletoe in December. Entries identify the best time and place to experience such wonders as wildflowers blooming, birds in migration, amphibians singing, and morel mushrooms ready to be picked, sliced, sautéed, and devoured. Color photographs of more than seventy species enrich and illustrate the text. Every week of the year has a recommended "Trip of the Week." Personal essays that draw from MacKay's field notes provide an intimate glimpse into a biologist encounters with plants and animals over the years. Whether you want to see snow geese and trumpeter swans pausing in their northward migration each March, or the mating "jubilee" of polychaete worms during the new moon in May, A Year across Maryland offers valuable advice for the spontaneous adventurer and the serious planner alike. -- Lytton John Musselman, author of Plants of the Chesapeake Bay: A Guide to Wildflowers, Grasses, Aquatic Vegetation, Trees, Shrubs, and Other Flora

A recent rise in the popularity of urban farming, farmers’ markets, and foraging from nature means more people are looking for information about plants. In The Quick Guide to Wild Edible Plants, botanists Lytton John Musselman and Harold J. Wiggins coach you on how to safely identify, gather, and prepare delicious dishes from readily available plants—and clearly indicate which ones to avoid. More than 200 color illustrations, accompanied by detailed descriptions, will help you recognize edible plants such as nettles, daylilies, river oats, and tearthumbs. For decades, Musselman and Wiggins have taught courses on how to prepare local plants, and their field-to-table recipes require only a few, easily found ingredients. They offer instructions for making garlic powder out of field garlic and turning acorns into flour for Rappahannock Acorn Cakes. To toast your new skill, they even include recipes for cordials. The Quick Guide to Wild Edible Plants is a great gift for the beginning naturalist and the perfect addition to every serious forager’s library. "The book is witty and full of commonsense. It is a jolly good read for anyone."—Portland Book Review "Dr. Musselman is a passionate botanist. Walking among plant life makes him very happy, which means he is happy most of the time, except when riding in a car stuck in a long tunnel. He will stop people on the street to tell them some great news from the plant world."—Garrison Keillor "Whether this is your passion or merely something you might be interested in learning about, check out The Quick Guide to Wild Edible Plants... Should I ever get a craving for stinging nettle omelet or black locust fritters, I will know exactly which wild edible plant book to look in."—The Aiken Standard "Drawing from a lifetime of foraging experience, Musselman and Wiggins expand the reader's food gathering repertoire with simple recipes and a fascinating assortment of plants largely overlooked by the wild food literature."—Samuel Thayer, author of The Forager's Harvest: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants

Judge McKelva ist tot, der gütigste und gerechteste Richter von ganz Mississippi. Er, der sich immer für einen Optimisten gehalten hatte, dessen Einstellung zum Leben vom Leben selbst durchaus bestätigt worden war, stirbt nach einer Augenoperation. Zu seinem Begräbnis kommen die angesehenen Familien der Kleinstadt zusammen und reden über Bridge, Rosen und Räucherschinken. Zwei Frauen nehmen die Kondolenzen entgegen: Fay, die junge Witwe, eine laute, egoistische Texanerin, die mit ihrer Sippschaft zu all der stillen Vornehmheit ringsum einen störenden, aber ungemein lebhaften Kontrast bildet. Und Laurel, die Tochter des Richters aus seiner ersten Ehe, die älter als ihre Stiefmutter ist und aus dem fernen, kalten Chicago herbeigereist ist. Laurel ist scheinbar ganz heimisch in dieser Welt, sie saugt sich noch einmal ganz voll mit Erinnerungen an ihre Kindheit und ihre Eltern. Und plötzlich wird ihr klar, daß sie unangenehme Vorfälle und schmerzliche Wahrheiten nicht mehr so einfach verdrängen kann.
