Sprout Lands - Tending the Endless Gift of Trees (Hardcover): William Bryant Logan Sprout Lands - Tending the Endless Gift of Trees (Hardcover)

Farmers once knew how to make a living fence and fed their flocks on tree-branch hay. Rural people knew how to prune hazel to foster abundance: both of edible nuts and of straight, strong, flexible rods for bridges, walls and baskets. Townspeople cut beeches to make charcoal to fuel ironworks. Shipwrights shaped oaks to make hulls. In order to prosper communities cut their trees so they would sprout again. Pruning the trees didn't destroy them. Rather, it created healthy, sustainable and diverse woodlands. From these woods came the poetic landscapes of Shakespeare's England and of ancient Japan. The trees lived longer. William Bryant Logan travels from the English fens to Spain, California and Japan to rediscover and celebrate what was once a common and practical ecology-finding hope that humans may again learn what the persistence and generosity of trees can teach.

The Veiled Pulse of Time - An Introduction to Biographical Cycles and Destiny (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): William Bryant The Veiled Pulse of Time - An Introduction to Biographical Cycles and Destiny (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
William Bryant
R406 R349 Discovery Miles 3 490 Save R57 (14%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Our biography is our most precious, intimate possession, yet how much do we really know about ourselves? With a little work, we can discover in the unfolding of our biography the traces of a marvelous, cosmic patterning -- the cycles of our life. In this fascinating book, Bryant argues that the seven-year cycle converts experience into psychological faculties; that the twelve-year cycle marks how self-awareness is translated into our life's work; and that the thirty-year cycle marks a major turning point in life. The Veiled Pulse of Time explores these cycles and discusses questions of freedom and destiny, transformation, reincarnation, and karma.

Dirt - The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth (Paperback): William Bryant Logan Dirt - The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth (Paperback)
William Bryant Logan
R328 Discovery Miles 3 280 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

You are about to read a lot about dirt, which no one knows very much about. So begins the cult classic that brings mystery and magic to that stuff that won t come off your collar. John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Saint Phocas, Darwin, and Virgil parade through this thought-provoking work, taking their place next to the dung beetle, the compost heap, dowsing, historical farming, and the microscopic biota that till the soil. With fresh eyes and heartfelt reverence, William Bryant Logan variously observes, There is glamour to the study of rock; The most mysterious place on Earth is right beneath our feet; and Dirt is the gift of each to all. Whether Logan is traversing the far reaches of the cosmos or plowing through our planet s crust, his delightful, elegant, and surprisingly soulful meditations greatly enrich our concept of dirt, that substance from which we all arise and to which we all must return."

Air - The Restless Shaper of the World (Paperback): William Bryant Logan Air - The Restless Shaper of the World (Paperback)
William Bryant Logan
R366 Discovery Miles 3 660 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Air sustains the living. Every creature breathes to live, exchanging and changing the atmosphere. Water and dust spin and rise, make clouds and fall again, fertilizing the dirt. Twenty thousand fungal spores and half a million bacteria travel in a square foot of summer air. The chemical sense of aphids, the ultraviolet sight of swifts, a newborn's awareness of its mother's breast-all take place in the medium of air. Ignorance of the air is costly. The artist Eva Hesse died of inhaling her fiberglass medium. Thousands were sickened after 9/11 by supposedly "safe" air. The African Sahel suffers drought in part because we fill the air with industrial dusts. With the passionate narrative style and wide-ranging erudition that have made William Bryant Logan's work a touchstone for nature lovers and environmentalists, Air is-like the contents of a bag of seaborne dust that Darwin collected aboard the Beagle-a treasure trove of discovery.

Professional arborist and award-winning nature writer William Bryant Logan deftly relates the delightful history of the reciprocal relationship between humans and oak trees since time immemorial a profound link that has almost been forgotten. From the ink of Bach s cantatas, to the first boat to reach the New World, to the wagon, the barrel, and the sword, oak trees have been a constant presence throughout our history. In fact, civilization prospered where oaks grew, and for centuries these supremely adaptable, generous trees have supported humankind in nearly every facet of life. With an unabashed enthusiasm for his subject (Carol Haggas, Booklist) Logan combines science, philosophy, spirituality, and history with a contagious curiosity about why the natural world works the way it does. At once humorous and reverent, this splendid acknowledgment of a natural marvel (Publishing News) reintroduces the oak tree so that we might see its vibrant presence throughout our history and our modern world."
