By Beth Powning

house is like a leaf on a tree: other folks, different houses, are the opposite leaves. They stay underneath a similar sky, proportion an analogous thoughts, continue to exist an analogous storms. yet one leaf is a solitude. After twenty-five years on a brand new Brunswick farm, award-winning Canadian writer Beth Powning got here to appreciate the land she calls domestic. Now, virtually 20 years after the preliminary e-book of domestic, readers may well once more event the spirit of domestic in nature during this new version of her seminal publication. Time has made the delicate messages past her door turn into clearer, if no longer much less mysterious: the fantastic rawness of iciness storms, the easy dominance of oak timber, the certain poetry of evening, the universes stumbled on inside of a humble backyard. putting herself within the twin roles of explorer and storyteller, Powning waltzes the unstated divide among the untamed and the family, revelling within the advanced bonds that exist among the wildlife and people who may search to navigate its wonders. initially published in Canada as Seeds of one other summer season, this re-creation, which incorporates a new advent and lovely reproductions of Powning's luxurious nature images, will motivate those that search an easier lifestyles and enchant those people who are already there.

Tagebuch I (Thoreaus Tagebücher) (German Edition)

Henry D. Thoreaus Hauptwerk ist nicht »Walden« oder »Über den zivilen Ungehorsam«, sondern sein Tagebuch, das er als 20-jähriger begann und bis wenige Tage vor seinem Tod 1861 führte.
