What’s New

The Lost City of the Monkey God: Since the days of conquistador Hernan Cortes, rumours have circulated about a lost city of immense wealth hidden deep in the Honduran interior. Indigenous tribes warn the legendary city is cursed: to enter is a death sentence. In 2012, Doug Preston joined a team of scientists and with highly advanced classified technology to map the dense terrain, found some tantalizing evidence of not just an undiscovered city but a lost civilization. To confirm the discovery, Preston and the team battled torrential rains, quickmud, plagues of insects, jaguars and deadly snakes. They emerged from the jungle with proof of the legend... and the curse. They had contracted a horrifying, incurable and sometimes lethal disease.

The wondrous World of Weeds: According to the dictionary, a weed is simply a plant growing out of place. This book reveals the culinary and holistic potential of plants that are all around us.  They are also good companions in the garden for vegetables, fruit trees and flowers, and can tell you about the quality of your soil and any imbalances that are present.
