Summary

“A useful and practical field guide” to finding delicious, indigenous edibles—full of color photos and including a forager’s calendar (The Countryman).   Long before there were convenient supermarkets, foraging for edible plants was as essential to survival as hunting and farming. For today’s forager, it’s a fun and practically free way to eat fresh and get to know your local environment. In Foraging, naturalist author Paul Chambers gives you the knowledge and knowhow you need to start going on your own foraging adventures.   Focused on the British Isles, this comprehensive guide includes lists of indigenous edible plants, arranged alphabetically and by region. A full range of environments are covered, from the fields and forests of the countryside to suburban gardens, city streets, and even the coast. Chambers offers practical tips for identifying, collecting, preparing, and preserving forageables, as well each plants’ historical, cultural, and medicinal meanings and uses.   Packed with helpful illustrations and trivia, this volume is the result of years of experience and a passion for naturalism, and shares more than one hundred plants suitable for eating.

    Read by the author. 
    In her highly anticipated nonfiction debut, comedian Kelly Bandas uses her trademark humor to recount stories of growing up and becoming a semifunctional adult in a dysfunctional world. 
    Raised in a devoutly Catholic home, Kelly Bandas spent her entire childhood trying hard not to tick off “the man” or the Lord. And for the most part, she crushed it. But as she got older and began to navigate what it looked like to truly live in a world where gender roles, race, and politics weren’t always so black and white, Kelly realized that her former worldview was beginning to feel like that pair of Forever 21 jeans that used to glide effortlessly over her hips but now required a lot of stretching and acrobatic maneuvering to shimmy into place. And she’s not alone.  
    In Rookie Mistakes, Kelly shares stories of growing up in a church-centered, male-dominated society and how those experiences shaped and primed her for a new chapter of life. In this debut collection of essays, Kelly shares:Funny, fast-paced, and uplifting stories Encouragement for women who are tired of feeling like they will never measure up—and kind of don’t want to anywayInspiration to find your voice, your power, and your people 
    Kelly shares everything from laugh-out-loud accounts of Oregon Trail-themed first kisses to heartfelt insights gleaned from navigating life as a Christian feminist doing her best not to screw up being a parent of a child with a disability, in a trans-racial family. 
    Rookie Mistakes is the call-to-action millennial women everywhere have been waiting for.
