    Even in our hyper-connected world, there are tribes scattered across the far reaches of the globe who still live much the same way that their ancestors did thousands of years ago. Having had minimal contact with the outside world, these peoples currently live in harmony and unison with the environment around them. But as technology grows and the human population expands, the way of life of these tribes becomes increasingly threatened with every passing day.
    
    
    In The Rainforest Survivors, foreign correspondent Paul Raffaele recounts his time spent with three unique jungle tribes—the peace-loving Congo Pygmies, New Guinea’s tree-dwelling Korowai cannibals, and the Amazon’s ferocious Korubo. Over months spent living in these three communities, Raffaele experienced firsthand wisdom and mysterious rites forged over many millennia.
    
    
    Resonating with high adventure and remarkable characters, The Rainforest Survivors details the daily lives of these relatively unknown peoples and provides key political and environmental context, showing how outside forces are closing in on them and threatening to change forever their ways of life. Enthralling and unforgettable, this compelling book is the important portrait of indigenous peoples living the way they have for centuries.

    Every human body carries a secret cargo: a huge population of microorganisms living in the mouth, on the skin, in the gut. They help digest our food. They make essential vitamins. They break down toxins and metabolise drugs. They exert an invisible influence on our hormones, our immune systems, perhaps even our brains.
    
    This is the human microbiome – a living, shifting system of previously unimagined importance and complexity.
    
    In this first book-length account of this new realm of human biology, award-winning science writer Jon Turney explores the microbiome in detail, charting its birth and development,  investigating how it works, and assessing its many implications for our health, including its potential to shed new light on conditions such as bowel diseases, cancer, allergies and asthma. He considers the potential impacts of our modern disinfectant and antibiotic obsessions, and ponders a future of designer microbiomes and mood-altering probiotics. 
    
    This book will make you think again about your relationship with your body, your habits – even your sense of who and what you are – as it reveals what it means to be a 21st century superorganism.

    ‘This is The Good Life meets A Year in Provence’. Sue Collins, The Nualas 
    ‘A luminous, funny and profound reading experience.’ Sebastian Barry  
    First, a dream of escaping the city… and then a century-old cottage to match the dream. Moving to a small village in the heart of the countryside was the beginning of a new life for Philip Judge and his Beloved – the beginning of life In Sight of Yellow Mountain.  
    Judge describes the season-by-season charms and frustrations that he, his Beloved, and eventually, his two growing boys experience as they adapt to life in the countryside. 
    There are highs and lows. Wellies and tweeds are bought. Vegetable patches cultivated. Lambs are born, calves die. There is weather: good and bad; health and happiness; illness and sadness. The city slicker fails miserably at Name That Grain! and makes many faux pas along the way, but ultimately, this is the story of one man, and his growing family, experiencing the pleasure that is finding home.

    Becoming Spacefarers - Rescuing...

    What is a spacefaring society, and how do we get there from here? In addressing these questions,
    this book examines how partisanship and parochialism have hindered American space dreams in recent
    years, and demonstrates that the lessons we should have learned from U.S. history can put us on a more
    productive path. Instead of being stuck in Stage One space development (space as a training ground), we
    can move more quickly to Stage Two (Earth-Moon space as an industrial park) and eventually to Stage
    Three (human activity across the solar system). The keys to achieving this are routine proximity operations
    throughout Earth-Moon space, sustainable space infrastructure, and a new level of collaboration between
    the public and private sectors  not adventure trips to distant solar system destinations.
    In Becoming Spacefarers: Rescuing Americas Space Program, James A. Vedda, one of the most innovative
    space policy analysts working today, offers a no-nonsense account of the current doldrums of spacefl ight
    in the United States and how the nation might deal with it. He makes clear that we are in a crisis, that
    business as usual will not enable us to overcome it, and that it is not suffi cient to rest on past successes
    or to accept the present partisanship and parochialism. In addition to diagnosing the problems, Vedda
    also offers useful and in some cases provocative prescriptions for how Americans might untie the Gordian
    knot of current approaches to spacefl ight.
