Wild Vegan Cookbook

Steve Brill, $27.95

If you're looking for an excuse to spend time outside during our Pacific Northwest "sun breaks," you can say you're just "picking up groceries," as you head off with a copy of The Wild Vegan Cookbook. Local parks, woodlands, fields and other open spaces are filled with delicious, organic, healthy sources of food. "Wildman" Steve Brill thoroughly explains how you can use nearly 150 wild American plants to create dishes that are good for you and taste great. More than 500 recipes are organized by season and also offer non-foraging cooks excellent non-wild alternative ingredients.

 

The Mystery of the White Lions

Linda Tucker, $19.95

After being rescued from a pride of angry lions by a medicine woman in a trance state, Linda Tucker found herself called to African shamanism. The Mystery of the White Lions recounts the story of her fight to save the sacred white lions, of their significance in shamanism and of how they change those who care for them. Linda delves into the knowledge and ceremonies of Old Africa, in which humans and lions are able to cross the species barrier--in accordance with the most guarded secrets of Ancient Egypt and the mysterious Sphinx.

 

Divine Life of Animals

Ptolemy Tomkins, $22.99

On a trip in the Yucatan as a boy, Ptolemy Tomkins first pondered the idea that animals might have souls. As he slipped food from his plate to a starving mongrel on the street, he saw a look of such hope in the dog's eyes that he later described as: a glint of the light of heaven within. The Divine Life of Animals blends ancient insights and the great faith traditions of East and West with vivid stories of animals today--to paint an picture of an inclusive cosmos, in which animals are every bit as important spiritually as the humans with whom they share the world.
