“What a wonderful idea for an adventure! Absolutely inspired, timely, and important.” —Alistair Humphreys, National Geographic Adventurer of the Year and author of The Doorstep Mile and Around the World by Bike Outdoor educator and field researcher Sara Dykman made history when she became the first person to bicycle along­side monarch butterflies on their storied annual migration—a round-trip adventure that included three countries and more than 10,000 miles. Equally remarkable, she did it solo, on a bike cobbled together from used parts. Her panniers were recycled buckets. In Bicycling with Butterflies, Dykman recounts her incredible journey and the dramatic ups and downs of the nearly nine-month odyssey. We’re beside her as she nav­igates unmapped roads in foreign countries, checks roadside milkweed for monarch eggs, and shares her passion with eager schoolchil­dren, skeptical bar patrons, and unimpressed border officials. We also meet some of the ardent monarch stewards who supported her efforts, from citizen scientists and research­ers to farmers and high-rise city dwellers. With both humor and humility, Dykman offers a compelling story, confirming the urgency of saving the threatened monarch migration—and the other threatened systems of nature that affect the survival of us all.

A mind-blowing romp of digital poetry in the vein of William Gibson’s Neuromancer and Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash, this postbiopunk vision set in the year 2065 is the debut novel of author Joseph Ellis Pereira. The legendary hacker Katnip finds himself the only quantum warrior with the skills to stop a virus that threatens to destabilize reality itself. To do this he’ll need two things – the first being the truth. The Illuminati, itself guided by a mysterious agency run by three E.B.E.’s (Extraterrestrial Biological Entities ) i.e. The Grays exist. In fact, there is far more than a grain of truth to every conspiracy theory you’ve ever laughed about. The truth is these hidden masters’ were never the enemy, nor had they ever had one. Until now. And his weapon is Project Monarch. Seemingly unstoppable. Save for that second thing - Katnip’s girlfriend , Aliza, and the unquantifiable love that binds them. Place your bets – all the way down the rabbit hole.

In this eloquent plea for compassion and respect for all species, journalist and gardener Nancy Lawson describes why and how to welcome wildlife to our backyards. Through engaging anecdotes and inspired advice, profiles of home gardeners throughout the country, and interviews with scientists and horticulturalists, Lawson applies the broader lessons of ecology to our own outdoor spaces. Detailed chapters address planting for wildlife by choosing native species; providing habitats that shelter baby animals, as well as birds, bees, and butterflies; creating safe zones in the garden; cohabiting with creatures often regarded as pests; letting nature be your garden designer; and encouraging natural processes and evolution in the garden. The Humane Gardener fills a unique niche in describing simple principles for both attracting wildlife and peacefully resolving conflicts with all the creatures that share our world.
