There are many reasons to grow cacti and other succulents—they're drought-tolerant, low-maintenance, and they look great. But what about hardiness? For those who thought that these spectacular plants were only for gardens in California and the Southwest, guess again—hundreds are fully cold-hardy and can be grown outdoors from New England to British Columbia, Wisconsin to Texas. Cacti and Succulents for Cold Climates is filled with inspirational portraits of 274 plants that can be used to create drought-tolerant gardens, as well as tips from regional experts who have mastered the art of growing cacti in parts of the country not usually associated with high temperatures or a scarcity of water. Expert Leo Chance describes how to prepare planting beds, how to get plants well established, how to handle cacti during planting, how to protect plants from cold winters, and when and how much to water.

Brasilien, Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts. Die Monarchie ist abgeschafft, die junge Republik versucht, sich zu konsolidieren. Ein Wanderprediger, Ratgeber genannt, zieht durch die von Hungersnöten, Seuchen und chronischer Armut geplagten Gegenden und verkündet das Ende der Welt. Eine Schar von Ausgestoßenen, der Ärmsten im Lande, sammelt sich um ihn, fest entschlossen, den wahren Glauben gegen den Antichrist zu verteidigen, der die Menschheit verderben will. Dieser Antichrist ist - die Republik. Sie gründen in Canudos die »Gesellschaft der Ärmsten«, ein »neues Jerusalem«. Mit Brüderlichkeit und Solidarität wollen sie Widerstand leisten. Die Aufständischen haben jedoch alle gegen sich: die um ihre Autorität besorgte Kirche, einen patriarchalischen Feudalherrn, zwei um die eigene Macht kämpfende Republikaner, den Revolutionär Galileo Gall. Sie alle reagieren mit Angst auf die Gründung des »neuen Jerusalems«. Die gesamten brasilianischen Streitkräfte werden schließlich aufgeboten, um die Anhänger des Ratgebers zu vernichten.

Die überwucherten Tempelruinen von Angkor Wat, die zerfallenden Pyramiden der Maya in Yucatan und die rätselhaften Moai-Statuen der Osterinsel - sie alle sind stille Zeugen einstmals blühender Kulturen, die irgendwann verschwanden. Doch was waren die Ursachen dafür? Jared Diamond zeichnet die Muster nach, die dem Untergang von Gesellschaften (oder ihrem Überleben) zugrunde liegen, und zeigt, was wir für unsere Zukunft daraus lernen können.
