  • Soup nights are popping up everywhere as a stress-free way to bring neighbors together. The host provides two or three pots of soup, and the guests bring their own dishes and silverware, and perhaps a salad or some bread. Neighbors get to know each other by name, people of all ages connect and socialize, and the neighborhood becomes friendlier and safer. In Soup Night, Maggie Stuckey offers a practical guide to starting your own soup night group, along with 99 delicious soup recipes and 40 recipes for accompaniments.

  • This is the inspirational story of how one couple ditched their high-powered careers and high-pressure life in New York City to move to rural New Mexico, where they made, built, invented, foraged, and grew all they needed to live self-sufficiently, discovering a new sense of abundance in the process. Alongside their personal story are tips and tutorials to guide readers in the discovery of a fulfilling new lifestyle that relies less on money. Tremayne believes that everyone has the skill and creativity to make it work. The Good Life Lab not only teaches the art of making biofuel, appliances, structures, gardens, food, and medicine but is filled with illustrations contributed by a community of artists and illustrators, making the book a work of art. It shows readers how to create out of waste, reconnect with nature, and live off the grid — it is the manual for life in a post-consumer age.
