Many family historians will come across direct links to ancestors who lived and worked in the countryside as farmers, laborers, landowners, village tradesmen and professionals for most of us have rural ancestors. Yet despite the burgeoning interest in genealogy, these people have rarely been written about with the family historian in mind. No previous book has provided a guide to the documents and records, from medieval times to the twentieth century, that researchers can use to find out about their rural ancestors and the world in which they lived. That is why this accessible and informative introduction by rural historian Jonathan Brown is so important.He describes the make-up of country and village society - the farmers, large and small, the farm-workers, the landowners and estate-owners, and the local business people, the tradesmen and merchants. At the same time he identifies and discusses the relevant national and local records, indicates where they can be found, and offers essential advice on how this information can be used to piece together the lives of distant and not so distant relatives. Tracing Your Rural Ancestors is essential reading for anyone who is looking for an insight into the history of rural life, work and society.

Followers of Jesus are on a journey of spiritual growth. Their goal is to become more and more like Christ, not only reflecting his character, but doing his work in the world. The process of transformation, from unbelief to faith and from faith to Christlikeness, takes place (ideally) in the context of a healthy church. That church, as a channel of God's grace, enables faithful disciples to take one step at a time toward spiritual maturity, effective ministry within the church, and useful service to the wider community. Every level on The Ladder of Faithfulness requires a different set of instructional methods. In this book, D. Michael Henderson offers practical advice for making disciples at every stage of spiritual growth. From his experience in American and African churches and colleges, he provides useful tools for equipping Christians in their primary mission: making disciples. D. Michael Henderson helps American and African Christians fulfill the command of Jesus: "Go into all the world and make disciples." He provides materials and training for small group ministries and personal discipleship. He directs a mission called Heart of Africa (, which supports African ministries with "breakthrough projects." His other books include John Wesley's Class Meeting and Making Disciples, One Conversation at a Time ( Mike and his wife Martha live in Longwood, Florida, and Friendship, Maine.

With more than 45,000 sold since 1989, The New Organic Grower has become a modern classic. In this newly revised and expanded edition, master grower Eliot Coleman continues to present the simplest and most sustainable ways of growing top-quality organic vegetables. Coleman updates practical information on marketing the harvest, on small-scale equipment, and on farming and gardening for the long-term health of the soil. The new book is thoroughly updated, and includes all-new chapters such as: Farm-Generated Fertility—how to meet your soil-fertility needs from the resources of your own land, even if manure is not available. The Moveable Feast—how to construct home-garden and commercial-scale greenhouses that can be easily moved to benefit plants and avoid insect and disease build-up. The Winter Garden—how to plant, harvest, and sell hardy salad crops all winter long from unheated or minimally heated greenhouses. Pests—how to find "plant-positive" rather than "pest-negative" solutions by growing healthy, naturally resistant plants. The Information Resource—how and where to learn what you need to know to grow delicious organic vegetables, no matter where you live. Written for the serious gardener or small market farmer, The New Organic Grower proves that, in terms of both efficiency and profitability, smaller can be better.

In low- and middle-income countries, people need water for drinking, personal hygiene and other domestic use. But they also use it for livestock, horticulture, irrigation, fisheries, brickmaking, and other small-scale enterprises. Multiple-use water services (MUS) are best suited to meeting people's needs. However, most water services are designed only for domestic water or only for agriculture, and fail to reflect its real-life use.
