Summary

From an author passionate about reconnecting both adults and children with nature, The Woodland Book aims to show anyone with an interest in nature and the great outdoors how to make the most of the unique environments provided by a canopy of trees. Packed with  fascinating facts about woodlands  including ancient rituals and the wildlife and flora that make it  special. You'll learn how to identify different kinds of woodland, assess the age of a tree from a stump, recognise the birds that nest in the canopy by their song and meet other creatures such as bats, badgers and even the odd wild boar. Other activities include learning ancient  woodland arts such as coppicing, searching for woodland fruits and  building your own shelter and mythical 'green man'.  
 
Perfect for adults and children who enjoy climbing, investigating, den building, camping and generally having fun, this book will encourage readers to have fun with nature.

    A classic now available in a new, expanded edition-a witty, literate, and accessible tour of the world of mathematics. 
     
       The Art of the Infinite takes infinity, in its countless guises, as a touchstone for understanding mathematical thinking. Robert and Ellen Kaplan guide us through the "Republic of Numbers,†? where we meet both its upstanding citizens and its more shadowy dwellers; and transport us across the plane of geometry into the unlikely realm where parallel lines meet. The journey is enriched by deft character studies of great mathematicians (and equally colorful lesser ones). And as we go deeper into infinity, we explore the most profound mystery of mathematics: Are its principles eternal truths that we discover? Or ones that we invent?

    Oluwo Philip Neimark, author of The Way of The Orisa, The Sacred Ifa Oracle and the Energy Matrix of Ifa, has chosen a path less traveled. Initiated into Santeria/Lukumi and subsequently finding the "root" religion of Ifa into which he was also initiated, he has constantly pushed the bubble to keep Ifa/Orisha relevant.Stripping away the Western incursions on this Eastern philosophy, he has forced initiates to examine their world view not as something fixed and immobile, but as something that takes its ancient truths and weaves them into the social, political,environmental situations of today's world. The result is a dynamic LIVING philosophy whose Truths have absolute relevance and whose applications have no end.

    Bewick’s British Birds

    With Bewick on my knee, I was then happy...' Jane Eyre 
    Charlotte Bronte's heroine was not alone in her enjoyment of Thomas Bewick's British Birds - since its first publication in 1797 it has become one of the best-loved classics of natural history. Bewick's masterful woodcuts are more than scientific records; each beady eye and jaunty pose betrays the artist's love of birds. 
    This edition includes over 180 bird species, from garden favourites such as robins, blackbirds and finches, to predators such as the osprey and the majestic golden eagle. Each entry is illustrated with an engraving, and throughout the book are narrative vignettes typical of Bewick's playful, engaging style.

    The Woman and the Car is a faithfully reproduced, quirky classic from the dawn of motoring - and quirky testament to womankind's perennial claim on the steering wheel! Take a spin through a time - 1909, to be precise - when no right-thinking lady would consider solo motoring without her revolver, and when the installation of a secret compartment for powder-puff was de rigeur. In the vintage driver's seat of this 'chatty little handbook' is record-breaking Edwardian motoriste Dorothy Levitt, exhorting the budding 'lady driver' to approach the newfangled contraption without fear and reassuring those who believed it was 'impossible to look anything but hideous when in an automobile.'
