Summary

Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not So Wild) Places shows readers how to find and prepare more than five hundred different plants for nutrition and better health, including such common plants as mullein (a tea made from the leaves and flowers suppresses a cough), stinging nettle (steam the leaves and you have a tasty dish rich in iron), cattail (cooked stalks taste similar to corn and are rich in protein), and wild apricots (an infusion made with the leaves is good for stomach aches and disgestive disorders).  
More than 260 detailed line drawings help readers identify a wide range of plants -- many of which are suited for cooking by following the more than thirty recipes included in this book. There are literally hundreds of plants readily available underfoot waiting to be harvested and used either as food or as a potential therapeutic. This book is both a field guide to nature's bounty and a source of intriguing information about the plants that surround us.

    Kindhearted and loudmouthed Mrs. Feeley, Mrs. Rasmussen, and Miss Tinkham have only just set out on their long-awaited cross-country drive to the West Coast when the trouble begins. It’s bad enough that they wind up in a seedy, truck stop nightclub, but then it’s raided by the police! Thankfully, Chief Connolly can tell they’re decent folks and lets them off easy, but he needs a favor in return. He wants them to take a passenger on their trip; a dangerous passenger they’ll need to outwit before making it home.   Mary Lasswell is firing on all cylinders again in this madcap, slapstick, high-spirited adventure—the fourth to star Mrs. Feeley and friends.

    This E-Book is for all horse owners but especially those whose horses and ponies may not be able to be ridden, either temporarily or permanently, for whatever reason or who chose not to ride, to enable both horse and owner to enjoy a fulfilling relationship.
    
    Most of the time we just turn up at the yard, do the jobs we need to do, catch our horses, groom them, tack them up and ride – why not become a bigger part of their lives, create a better bond and understanding and take some of the pressure of yourself!
    
    All of the activities are designed to enable you to develop a much better relationship with your horse and are all based on the principle that our horses and ponies are and always should be seen as our friends and partners.
