Vegan al Fresco is loaded with beautiful appetizers such as Peanut Potato Salad and Tomato and Olive Tarts, inventive sandwiches including Pita Po'Boys, and amazing grilled dishes like Sweet Chipotle Tempeh with Berries and Cedar Planked Rosemary and Lemon Tofu. Finish off your meal with Strawberry and Basil Scones, Maple and Walnut Cheesecake, or some crazy good vegan ice creams. The book includes prep and cooking times for each recipe, as well as advice on portability, food safety issues, and menu suggestions for special occasions. Full-color throughout, Vegan al Fresco offers delectable and sophisticated ways for vegans to enjoy the great outdoors.

With recipes like Spiced Currant Scones, Maple-Glazed Salmon, and Tomato Tarte Tatin, Huck and Young celebrate delicious food and the great outdoors. They also include step-by-step instructions for activities such as stargazing, foraging for woodland berries, and minding one's fruits of the sea (or, how to clean a fish). Campfire Cookery proves that the campfire can not only be a blissful escape but a true culinary destination. Praise for Campfire Cookery: “Co-authors Sarah Huck and Jaimee Young provide the inspiration and wherewithal to make campfire cooking civilized and delicious.” —Wall Street Journal “Get inspired by the outdoor culinary flair.” —InStyle "Sarah Huck and Jaimee Young were wise enough to put a photo of the old-fashioned campfire favorite on the cover of their new Campfire Cookery. They also were wise enough to include campfire cocktail recipes to wash the s'mores down." -USA Today “Campfire Cookery is one of those cookbooks you need to buy two of.” —Edible Brooklyn “The beauty of this book is that it evokes a simpler era when things weren’t automatic, when all cooking required the primal flame, and when cooking and eating was more than just about the food.” —Epicurious.com

B95 can feel it: a stirring in his bones and feathers. It's time. Today is the day he will once again cast himself into the air, spiral upward into the clouds, and bank into the wind. He wears a black band on his lower right leg and an orange flag on his upper left, bearing the laser inscription B95. Scientists call him the Moonbird because, in the course of his astoundingly long lifetime, this gritty, four-ounce marathoner has flown the distance to the moon—and halfway back! B95 is a robin-sized shorebird, a red knot of the subspecies rufa. Each February he joins a flock that lifts off from Tierra del Fuego, headed for breeding grounds in the Canadian Arctic, nine thousand miles away. Late in the summer, he begins the return journey. B95 can fly for days without eating or sleeping, but eventually he must descend to refuel and rest. However, recent changes at ancient refueling stations along his migratory circuit—changes caused mostly by human activity—have reduced the food available and made it harder for the birds to reach. And so, since 1995, when B95 was first captured and banded, the worldwide rufa population has collapsed by nearly 80 percent. Most perish somewhere along the great hemispheric circuit, but the Moonbird wings on. He has been seen as recently as November 2011, which makes him nearly twenty years old. Shaking their heads, scientists ask themselves: How can this one bird make it year after year when so many others fall? National Book Award–winning author Phillip Hoose takes us around the hemisphere with the world's most celebrated shorebird, showing the obstacles rufa red knots face, introducing a worldwide team of scientists and conservationists trying to save them, and offering insights about what we can do to help shorebirds before it's too late. With inspiring prose, thorough research, and stirring images, Hoose explores the tragedy of extinction through the triumph of a single bird. Moonbird is one The Washington Post's Best Kids Books of 2012. A Common Core Title.
