    The wines of Canada

    Wine has
    been made commercially in Canada since the mid-1800s but Canadian wine has
    begun to register with professionals and consumers in the wider wine world only
    in the last five to ten years, as quality has dramatically improved. Canadian
    wine is now being exported in meaningful volumes to the U.S., Asia and Europe.
    Since the beginning of this century the number of wineries has increased
    many-fold (the great majority are less than fifteen years old), wine regions
    have been demarcated (and some divided into sub-appellations), wine laws have
    been adopted in three important wine-producing provinces (there is no national
    wine law), and indigenous and hybrid vines have largely been replaced by vitis
    vinifera varieties in the main wine regions. 
     
    Here, Canadian
    wine expert Rod Phillips provides an overview of Canada’s wine regions, their
    climate, soil, and other geographic conditions, and the grape varieties they
    grow most successfully. The wines of Canada discusses the key producers
    of each region (British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada), and the
    styles of wine most characteristic of their production, as well as analysing
    vintage variation and noteworthy viticultural and winemaking techniques, such
    as burying vines to protect them from winter temperatures in some regions. The
    book concludes with useful practical appendices covering the distribution of
    grape varieties, annual production by region or province, wine consumption in
    Canada and vintage charts. The wines of Canada is the first comprehensive guide to one of the rising stars in the
    world of wine.

    About a quarter century ago, a previously unknown writer named William Least Heat-Moon wrote a book called Blue Highways. Acclaimed as a classic, it was a travel book like no other. Quirky, discursive, endlessly curious, Heat-Moon had embarked on an American journey off the beaten path. Sticking to the small places via the small roads--those colored blue on maps--he uncovered a nation deep in character, story, and charm. Now, for the first time since Blue Highways, Heat-Moon is back on the backroads. ROADS TO QUOZ is his lyrical, funny, and touching account of a series of American journeys into small-town America.

    The inspiration for The Durrells in Corfu, a Masterpiece production on public television: A naturalist’s account of his childhood on the exotic Greek island.   When the Durrells could no longer endure the gray English climate, they did what any sensible family would do: sold their house and relocated to the sun-soaked island of Corfu.   As they settled into their new home, hilarious mishaps ensued as a ten-year-old Gerald Durrell pursued his interest in natural history and explored the island’s fauna. Soon, toads and tortoises, bats and butterflies—as well as scorpions, geckos, ladybugs, praying mantises, octopuses, pigeons, and gulls—became a common sight in the Durrell villa.   Uproarious tales of the island’s animals and Durrell’s fond reflections on his family bring this delightful memoir to life. Capturing the joyous chaos of growing up in an unconventional household, My Family and Other Animals will transport you to a place you won’t want to leave.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the author’s estate.
