    The Moral Lives of Animals

    Wild elephants walking along a trail stop and spontaneously try to  
    protect and assist a weak and dying fellow elephant. Laboratory rats,  
    finding other rats caged nearby in distressing circumstances, proceed to 
     rescue them. A chimpanzee in a zoo loses his own life trying to save an 
     unrelated infant who has fallen into a watery moat.  
     The  
    examples above and many others, argues Dale Peterson, show that our  
    fellow creatures have powerful impulses toward cooperation, generosity,  
    and fairness. Yet it is commonly held that we Homo sapiens are the only  
    animals with a moral sense-that we are somehow above and apart from our  
    fellow creatures.  
     This rigorous and stimulating book challenges  
    that notion, and it shows the profound connections-the moral  
    continuum-that link humans to many other species. Peterson shows how  
    much animal behavior follows principles embodied in humanity's ancient  
    moral codes, from the Ten Commandments to the New Testament.  
    Understanding the moral lives of animals offers new insight into our  
    own.

    “Few books have grabbed my attention as dramatically as this one—because it’s ultimately do-able for thousands of would-be food and farm healers.” —Joel Salatin, Polyface Farm  Grow better not bigger with proven low-tech, human-scale, biointensive farming methods   Making a living wage farming without big capital outlay or acreages may be closer than you think. Growing on just 1.5 acres, Jean-Martin and Maude-Helene feed more than 200 families through their thriving CSA and seasonal market stands. The secret of their success is the low-tech, high-yield production methods they’ve developed by focusing on growing better rather than growing bigger, making their operation more lucrative and viable in the process.  The Market Gardener is a compendium of proven horticultural techniques and innovative growing methods. This complete guide is packed with practical information on:   ·       Setting-up a micro-farm by designing biologically intensive cropping systems, all with negligible capital outlay ·       Farming without a tractor and minimizing fossil fuel inputs through the use of the best hand tools, appropriate machinery and minimum tillage practices ·       Growing mixed vegetables systematically with attention to weed and pest management, crop yields, harvest periods and pricing approaches.   Inspired by the French intensive tradition of maraichage and by iconic American vegetable grower Eliot Coleman, author and farmer Jean-Martin shows by example how to start a market garden and make it both very productive and profitable.   “Very well done and should be of great use to market growers everywhere.” —Eliot Coleman, organic farming pioneer and author of The New Organic Grower   “Both visionary and practical, it is a work of rare intelligence.” —Charles Herve-Gruyer, permaculture teacher and grower at la Fermedu BecHellouin, France
