Actress Drew Barrymore shares funny, insightful, and profound stories from her past and present—told from the place of happiness she's achieved today—in this heart-stirring New York Times bestseller that InStyle called “deeply thoughtful and fun.” Wildflower is a portrait of Drew's life in stories as she looks back on the adventures, challenges, and incredible experiences she’s had throughout her life. It includes tales of living in her first apartment as a teenager (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck under a gas station overhang on a cross-country road trip, saying good-bye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more journeys and lessons that have led her to the successful, happy, and healthy place she is today.

This is the story of how a young northern girl picked herself up out of the rough and polished herself off like the diamond that she is in the land of the midnight sun. Northern Wildflower is the beautifully written and powerful memoir of Catherine Lafferty. With startling honesty and a distinct voice, Lafferty tells her story of being a Dene woman growing up in Canada's North and her struggles with intergenerational trauma, discrimination, poverty, addiction, love, and loss. Focusing on the importance of family ties, education, spiritualism, cultural identity, health, happiness, and the courage to speak the truth, Lafferty's words bring cultural awareness and relativity to Indigenous and non-Indigenous readers alike, giving insight into the real issues many Indigenous women face and dispelling misconceptions about what life in the North is like.

With compassion and an unswerving regard for the truth, veteran journalist Mark Seal lays bare the deeply moving, inspirational story of Joan Root, a dedicated environmentalist and Oscar-nominated wildlife filmmaker. He covers her early days in Kenya as a shy young woman with an almost uncanny ability to connect to animals; her whirlwind courtship with the dashing Alan Root, their marriage, and the twenty years of nonstop adventure and passionate romance that followed, both in Africa and around the world; the shattering disintegration of the marriage and partnership; and Joan’s triumphant struggle to reinvent herself as the protector of her lakeshore community’s fragile ecosystem—a struggle that would lead to her tragic death in January 2006. Joan Root dreamed of a bright future for Kenya, a country blessed with unmatched beauty but scarred by decades of colonization and a culture of corruption. She spent her life fighting to make that dream a reality. Her life ended too soon, but “thanks to Seal’s meticulous re-creation, her extraordinary life lives on.” (People, four-star review)

Meadow-making helps preserve our fragile environment from further decline but it requires knowledge and skill to create a successful meadow. In this timely book, Pam Lewis's passion for traditional pasture management and the preservation of our native species of plants and her extensive meadow-making experience, are translated into an easy-to-read, informative and highly practical text on creating and preserving wildflower meadows - from the smallest garden meadow to large-scale field projects. Sticky Wicket in Dorset has been a mecca for serious garden visitors for many years and photographs of its beautiful gardens regularly appear in the gardening press. Created by Pam and Peter Lewis over the last fifteen years, the five acres of land have always been regarded as a haven for wildlife and managed accordingly. Passionate about the preservation of England's dwindling meadows, Pam hopes to inspire others to create their own in this fascinating book, a combination of ecological sustainability and hands-on gardening. Prefaced by the champion of meadow gardening, Dame Miriam Rothschild, it explains how these""overgrown""green oases support and sustain a fast-vanishing population of essential wildlife - insects, mammals, birds and flora. Whether they are dry, wet, natural or created, Pam explains how to manage and care for your meadow in sympathy with nature. She teaches what to look for when first appraising a meadow, when to mow, when to sow, when to 'weed', when to plant. This is also a history of Sticky Wicket and its horticultural developments - the lessons learned, the experience gained along with a frightening insight into how over-cultivation by farmers and acquisition by property developers is slowly but surely destroying England's green and pleasant land. Accompanied by the photographs of acclaimed garden photographer Steven Wooster, the book shows what can be done by gardeners everywhere to halt this destruction and restore beauty to the countryside.
