These two books have made for some great reading lately.

Hannah Kirschner's Water, Wood, and Wild Things is the telling of her multi-year experience connecting with the small mountain town of Yamanaka, Ishikawa. Lots of delightful details of sake making, boar hunting, paper making, garden revitalization.

Winifred Bird's Eating Wild Japan: Tracking the Culture of Foraged Foods, with a Guide to Plants and Recipes
is a wonderful look at sansai. Great for anyone looking for food to supplement what you raise. Lovely, lovely book.

Anyone else have some summer reading going?

The New Organic Grower by Eliot Coleman is always worth a read. Lost count of the number of times I've gone through and yet still discover new things when going over it once more.
