In the Garden, by award-winning photographer Stacy Bass with essays by Suzanne Gannon, celebrates the natural splendor and abundant creativity of the American gardens of the new millennium. In astonishing fine art images and vibrant prose, each of its 18 chapters tells the story of a how an individual brought his or her vision of beauty to life, inspired by the lay of the land, a single blossom, or a garden once glimpsed in a far away place. In the Garden is alive with 224 pages of color—lush spreads and intimate detail shots--that showcase Bass’s intuitive knack for composition and her sharp eye behind the lens. Whether devoted to a manicured series of structured parterres or a rambling meadow of wild grasses, each chapter features a crisp and lively narrative that both entertains and informs the reader, intentionally straddling the divide between aspiring gardeners and avid horticulturalists. By evoking the personality behind the garden and illustrating the results of his or her work with foliage and flowers, it serves as an aesthetic commentary on how we shape the world around us. This luxurious book which features some of the Northeast’s most noteworthy and beautiful gardens captured at dawn, makes a generous and compelling gift, and serves equally well as a decorative accessory or a rich conversation piece.

Berlin,1933. William E. Dodd, a mild-mannered academic from Chicago, has to his own and everyone else's surprise, become America's first ambassador to Hitler's Germany, in a year that proves to be a turning point in history. Dodd and his family, notably his vivacious daughter, Martha, observe at first-hand the many changes - some subtle, some disturbing, and some horrifically violent - that signal Hitler's consolidation of power. Dodd has little choice but to associate with key figures in the Nazi party, his increasingly concerned cables make little impact on an indifferent U.S. State Department, while Martha is drawn to the Nazis and their vision of a 'New Germany' and has a succession of affairs with senior party players, including first chief of the Gestapo, Rudolf Diels. But as the year darkens, Dodd and his daughter find their lives transformed and any last illusion they might have about Hitler are shattered by the violence of the 'Night of the Long Knives' in the summer of 1934 that established him as supreme dictator. Suffused with the tense atmosphere of the times, and with brilliant portraits of Hitler, Goebbels, Goering and Himmler amongst others, Erik Larson's new book sheds unique light on events as they unfold, resulting in an unforgettable, addictively readable work of narrative history.

The true tale of an edenic Rocky Mountain town and what transpired when a predatory species returned to its ancestral home. When, in the late 1980s, residents of Boulder, Colorado, suddenly began to see mountain lions in their yards, it became clear that the cats had repopulated the land after decades of persecution. Here, in a riveting environmental fable that recalls Peter Benchley's thriller Jaws, journalist David Baron traces the history of the mountain lion and chronicles Boulder's effort to coexist with its new neighbors. A parable for our times, The Beast in the Garden is a scientific detective story and a real-life drama, a tragic tale of the struggle between two highly evolved predators: man and beast.
