Learn how to live sustainably in the city, the suburbs, or the country Many people are cutting back on consumerism and trying to simplify their lives, realizing that the "new way" isn't necessarily the best way. The sustainable living movement goes beyond a desire to protect the environment and practice green living; it's about rediscovering simple survival skills that, in an earlier time, were known and practiced by almost everyone. The New American Homestead gives you a wealth of information about homesteading—a lifestyle of simple, agrarian self-sufficiency—from raising chickens, bees, and other animals to gardening in earth-friendly ways to canning, preserving, home brewing, and cheese making. The book does not assume that you have a sizable parcel of land in the country; author John Tullock's techniques can be put to use in virtually any space, even a small urban plot. The book appeals to anyone who has a yard, courtyard, deck, or porch with room for gardening; wants to spend less money maintaining a household; and desires to reduce his or her carbon footprint through sustainable living The author emphasizes cultivating foods of all kinds in spaces of one-third of an acre or less, with consideration given to costs, family needs, available space, and the pleasures of the table Includes advice for achieving sustainability in other aspects of urban/suburban life Whether you're dwelling in the country, suburbs, or the city, The New American Homestead shows you how to live a more sustainable life.

Not since the Greatest Generation marched off to war have Americans embraced home food gardening with such enthusiasm, with everyone from apartment dwellers to the First Family growing fresh, wholesome food. Seed to Supper provides the perfect introduction to food gardening and cooking with homegrown produce. America is a land of foodies. From local supermarkets to gourmet food trucks, we're cooking, buying and eating more discriminately than ever. And, as our options for healthy eating grow, so does our awareness of additives, preservatives and other ingredients on food labels that we can't pronounce (and don't want). So, what could be more natural than taking our passion for food to the source? To actually nurture herbs and vegetables from tiny seeds to aromatic glory is beyond a mere accomplishment—it's deeply fulfilling (and delicious!). In Seed to Supper Tullock takes a novel approach to help growers succeed by organizing cooking and growing information by the nature and size of the garden space itself. Beginning with herbs and greens that can be produced at a sunny window, he moves on to larger containers for a patio or deck, followed by the diversity of raised beds, and finally to an integrated backyard landscape. Yet, Seed to Supper is much more than a gardening book. Tullock includes more than 100 kitchen-tested recipes that feature the most popular homegrown vegetables and fresh herbs, which can be paired with meat and dairy from the grocery. And it doesn't take an expert either in the garden or in the kitchen to grow the ingredients or create the wonderfully nutritious recipes featured in each chapter.

The self-sufficiency and regional outlook of farm life characterized the United States until the Civil War period. With the triumph of the industrial North over the rural South, the expansion of urbanism, and the closing of the frontier, the agrarian sector became an economic and cultural minority. The social benefits of rural life--a sense of independence, commitment to democracy, an abundance of children, stable community life--were threatened. This volume examines the rise of a distinctive agrarian intellectual movement to combat these trends. The New Agrarian Mind, now in paperback, synthesizes the thought of twentieth-century agrarian writers. It weaves together discussions of major representative figures, such as Liberty Hyde Bailey, Carle Zimmerman, and Wendell Berry, with myth-shattering analyses of the movement's cultural diversity, intellectual influence, and ideological complexity. Collectively labeled the New Agrarians to distinguish them from the simpler Jeffersonianism of the nineteenth century, they shared a coherent set of goals that were at once socially conservative and economically radical.

On July 6, 1892, three hundred armed Pinkerton agents arrived in Homestead, Pennsylvania to retake the Carnegie Steelworks from the company's striking workers. As the agents tried to leave their boats, shots rang out and a violent skirmish began. The confrontation at Homestead was a turning point in the history of American unionism, beginning a rapid process of decline for America’s steel unions that lasted until the Great Depression. Examining the strike’s origins, events, and legacy, The Homestead Strike illuminates the tense relationship between labor, capital, and government in the pivotal moment between Reconstruction and the Progressive Era. In a concise narrative, bolstered by statements from steelworkers, court testimony, and excerpts from Carnegie's writings, Paul Kahan introduces students to one of the most dramatic and influential episodes in the history of American labor.

With long, solitary periods at sea, far from literary and cultural centers, sailors comprise a remarkable population of readers and writers. Although their contributions have been little recognized in literary history, seamen were important figures in the nineteenth-century American literary sphere. In the first book to explore their unique contribution to literary culture, Hester Blum examines the first-person narratives of working sailors, from little-known sea tales to more famous works by Herman Melville, James Fenimore Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe, and Richard Henry Dana. In their narratives, sailors wrote about how their working lives coexisted with--indeed, mutually drove--their imaginative lives. Even at leisure, they were always on the job site. Blum analyzes seamen's libraries, Barbary captivity narratives, naval memoirs, writings about the Galapagos Islands, Melville's sea vision, and the crisis of death and burial at sea. She argues that the extent of sailors' literacy and the range of their reading were unusual for a laboring class, belying the popular image of Jack Tar as merely a swaggering, profane, or marginal figure. As Blum demonstrates, seamen's narratives propose a method for aligning labor and contemplation that has broader applications for the study of American literature and history.

Shaped by the Duke family's influence and the production of bright leaf tobacco, Durham, North Carolina, over time, has transformed from the "Bull City" to the "City of Medicine." Duke Homestead and the American Tobacco Company showcases the effect of both tobacco and the Duke family in Durham. The Duke family's fortunes grew alongside those of the city as they rose from tobacco farmers to founders of the American Tobacco Company and influential philanthropists. Duke University, Duke Hospital, and Duke Energy as well as local churches, orphanages, textile mills, banks, and railroads can all trace their roots to the Duke family. The American Tobacco Company was the largest tobacco manufacturer in the world as well as one of the 12 founding members of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. From its founding in 1890, the American Tobacco Company was a major employer in the area, bringing income and a higher quality of life to those employed there, regardless of race or gender.
