Those of us living in towns and cities might think that the pleasures of growing our own food, watching the seasons pass with the changing produce and getting our hands stuck into the soil are beyond our reach. But a growing number of urban dwellers are realising that there are ways of connecting with the land, and enjoying the sheer pleasure of watching something grow, without giving up the joys of living in the city. Jojo Tulloh takes us to her inner-city allotment and guides us through a year of cooking, inspired by the food that has sprung from her surprisingly fertile patch of East London waste-ground.

*WINNER OF THE FORTNUM & MASON FOOD BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2014* Inspired by those who were bold enough to make that leap, but firmly rooted in London, food writer Jojo Tulloh wondered if some kind of peasant-like self-sufficiency could be achieved for city-dwellers; looking around her she found she was not alone.Beneath Victorian railway arches, on inner city roof tops and on borrowed land, a new breed of food producers were baking bread, making cheese, keeping bees and growing vegetables. Inspired by their success, Jojo watched and learned. In this evocative and illuminating book, Jojo shares her knowledge of this fast-changing culinary scene. Alongside vivid stories from her visits to producers and tips for baking and pickling, fermenting and foraging, she presents fresh tasting, achievable recipes for modern peasants – sourdough pizzas of nettles and sausage, celebratory paellas of squid and home-grown peppers, chutneys, jam and pickles – and in doing so shows how a food philosophy that takes the best from past traditions can put flavour and excitement back into everyday cooking – even amidst the roar of city life.

In its tiny corner of the East End, life in Paradise Court is often hard, but never dull. At its heart, the Duke of Wellington, Wilf Parsons presides behind the bar as a pillar of cohesion and strength. In spite of the ever-increasing reality of war, to 'Duke', his large, motherless brood of six, and other local families, everyday dramas in the Court still take greater precedence. Paradise Court marks the start of an unforgettable saga of life in London's East End - a glorious, heart-warming story of ordinary people set against the backdrop of the Great War, ending in breathtaking suspense as life is held, literally, in the balance . . .

From bishops to battlefields, barrowboys to business tycoons, Nuala Naughton brings to life some of the characters and events that have shaped Glasgow’s East End since the city’s founder, St Mungo, first set eyes on the ‘dear green place’ This entertaining, lighthearted account looks at the legends behind the city’s coat of arms and the foundation of the city as an ecclesiastic centre of excellence and respected seat of learning. It also offers a colourful insight into tenement life with anecdotes and interviews by born and bred Eastenders; the Battle of George Square in 1919 when Prime Minister Churchill waged war on unionized workers, the make-do-and-mend community and the story behind ‘silk stockings’ made from used teabags and an eyebrow pencil during the Second World War; the dancin’, the saints, the sinners; the ‘City of the Dead’ and how the Barrowland ballroom came to the attention of the German high command and the war propagandist Lord Haw Haw. From medieval Glasgow to modern times, this fascinating book offers a pick ‘n’ mix of fact and fiction, myths and miracles surrounding the rich and sometimes turbulent history of Glasgow’s East End.

The British countryside is in crisis: tensions have never been greater between town and country; between the conflicting needs of farming and the environment; and between a government seen as anti-countryside and the disillusioned majority that inhabit it._x000D_ _x000D_ _x000D_ But how has the land, so fundamental to the fabric of British life, become such a charged issue? This sweeping history of the British countryside since the industrial revolution provides an answer by viewing it not simply as a tool of the farming industry (which previous histories have tended towards) but rather as an object of consumption in its own right, a well of nature and beauty enjoyed by a population increasingly in search of leisure and inspiration, relaxation and entertainment. But, as an antidote to the harshness of an urbanised world, the countryside has itself come increasingly under pressure from that very world – not least because of the fraught relationship between the radically different interests of agriculture and the environment. _x000D_ _x000D_ As mass mobility since World War II has seen ever-growing numbers in pursuit of leisure in the environment, Paradise Lost asks whether the idyll that they seek is in fact an artificial confection – a myth created by writers like Thomas Hardy, DH Lawrence and EM Forster – and reinforced by bodies that aim to promote the land, including The National Trust and the Council for the Preservation of Rural England and groups seeking to promote animal welfare, food safety and an end to rural degradation._x000D_ _x000D_ _x000D_ The ‘Town versus Countryside’ debate has never been more urgent or more highly-charged and it lies at the root of modern British political, economic, social, and cultural life. Jeremy Burchardt here provides a significant contribution to that debate and demonstrates that we cannot hope to understand or address it without an appreciation of how our own attitudes to the countryside have developed and altered over the last two hundred years.

In the 400 years from Magellan’s entrance into Pacific waters to 1920, the lives of the people of the South Pacific were utterly transformed. Exotic diseases from Europe and America, particularly the worldwide influenza pandemic, were deadly for islanders. Ardent missionaries changed the belief systems and lives of nearly all Polynesians, Aborigines, and those Papuans and Melanesians living in areas accessible to westerners. By 1920 every island and atoll in the South Seas had been claimed as a colony or protectorate of a power such as Britain, France or the United States. Factors aiding this imperial sweep included European outposts such as Sydney, advances in maritime technology, the work of missionaries, a desire to profit from the area’s relatively sparse resources, and international rivalry that led to the scramble for colonies. The coming of westerners, as this book points out, was not entirely negative, as head-hunting, cannibalism, chronic warfare, human sacrifice, and other practices were diminished—but whole cultures were irreversibly changed or even eradicated.

Three surveyors in the late 19th century were so attracted to the area’s desert beauty that they named it “the Paradise Valley.” Starting in the 1920s, adobe homes were constructed in various revival styles. In 1936, the Camelback Inn resort set a high-quality standard with an inviting and relaxed character. Other guest lodges arrived, including the Hermosa Inn and the El Chorro Lodge. The 1950s brought more luxurious resorts, including the Paradise Valley Racquet Club and the Mountain Shadows Resort. With the threat of Phoenix or Scottsdale annexing the area, the citizens started debating incorporation in 1949 and were successful in 1961. Churches, schools, town facilities, and single-family homes followed. Numerous town ordinances were adopted to preserve a quiet, desert lifestyle such as burying all utilities, restrictive zoning, and hillside preservation.

Alaska Wildlife Trooper, Will Trippet, partnered with his old schoolmate, Gordy Ponset, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife officer to patrol Mystery Creek Road on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula to check bear baiting stations. While investigating tracks of an all terrain vehicle they discover a poached moose. The poacher lay dead at the scene, killed by a brown bear. This grisly scene ignites an investigation that took a year to complete. The poacher came from a family making a living taking illegal fish and game. Poacher's Paradise gives a glimpse into duties and perils of the adventurous, dangerous routine of Alaska Wildlife Troopers. Included in Poacher's Paradise is a true account of an early Alaska Fish and Wildlife Officer, Al ‘Bear Bait' Thompson, written by Al's wife, Joyce Thompson, who was with him during the entire ordeal. It gives details of the attack and mauling as well as the dramatic and heroic 17 mile trek to the nearest road for rescue. Al was one of the early officers who made Alaska Fish and Wildlife Division what it is today. I am pleased to relate that my wife, Betty Walden, worked with Al for many years until retiring.
