How to Stay Alive in the Woods: A Complete Guide to Food, Shelter and Self-Preservation Anywhere

This is the sort of information outdoor enthusiasts will find in Bradford Angier’s classic guide to survival in the wilderness. Divided into four parts (sustenance, warmth, orientation, safety), How To Stay Alive in the Woods is packed with woodcraft tips and age-old tricks–and it’s packable as well, so don’t leave home without it.

The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases from a State Hospital Attic

More than four hundred abandoned suitcases filled with patients’ belongings were found when Willard Psychiatric Center closed in 1995 after 125 years of operation. They are skillfully examined here and compared to the written record to create a moving—and devastating—group portrait of twentieth-century American psychiatric care.

The Lives They Left Behind is a deeply moving testament to the human side of mental illness, and of the narrow margin which so often separates the sane from the mad.  It is a remarkable portrait, too, of the life of a psychiatric asylum–the sort of community in which, for better and for worse, hundreds of thousands of people lived out their lives.

Kathy’s shift toward this new life was gradual–she leaned into it–but the impact was profound. Now Kathy shows us how to lean into the veganist life. Effortless weight loss, reversal of disease, environmental responsibility, spiritual awakening–these are just a few of the ten profound changes that can be achieved through a gentle switch in food choices.
