Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Category: Biography & Autobiography
Born in 1918, Vince Garrod lived on the family property in Saratoga, CA his entire life. He, his brother and his sister grew up without running water and without cars. He learned to drive when he was 8 and got his license at 14. He grew up picking prunes and cutting apricots. He stacked trays and hauled hay. He watched the world put a man on the moon and learn to communicate instantly via email. In the 1960s he moved the family business from prunes and apricots to horses and vineyards, and later wine. In 1970 he fell off a haystack and broke a hip, so during his forced inactivity he bought himself an Osborne computer and taught himself how to use it. He never sat back and expected something to change-if he wanted something different he created it. He could tell you how much fruit an orchard should produce, and could identify insect pests and fungus. He could hitch up a horse and milk a cow. He could grow tomatoes and catch gophers. Vince loved the land and was an advocate of conservation his entire life, and served on several conservation district boards and open space land trusts. He was an active community member and served on the local school board, as a 4-H leader, and fire commissioner. Everyone who met him liked him right away. There was a way about him-an easy smile, an interested question, and wise response. And he liked everyone. As part of his interest in conservation, he also thought family history was important. These stories he wrote from memories of his youth. They are stories of friends and with friends. They are stories of a different time, when kids walked home from school and made kites by hand and played marbles. They are also stories of a man who didn't begrudge time moving forward and understood after all that people are just people trying to do what they know how to do, and make their lives a little bit better.

Marijuana Grow Ops, Media, and Justice
Author: Susan C. Boyd,Connie Carter
Publisher: University of Toronto Press
Category: Social Science
Since the late 1990s, marijuana grow operations have been identified by media and others as a new and dangerous criminal activity of “epidemic” proportions. With Killer Weed, Susan C. Boyd and Connie Carter use their analysis of fifteen years of newspaper coverage to show how consensus about the dangerous people and practices associated with marijuana cultivation was created and disseminated by numerous spokespeople including police, RCMP, and the media in Canada. The authors focus on the context of media reports in Canada to show how claims about marijuana cultivation have intensified the perception that this activity poses “significant” dangers to public safety and thus is an appropriate target for Canada’s war on drugs. Boyd and Carter carefully show how the media draw on the same spokespeople to tell the same story again and again, and how a limited number of messages has led to an expanding anti-drug campaign that uses not only police, but BC Hydro and local municipalities to crack down on drug production. Going beyond the newspapers, Killer Weed examines how legal, political, and civil initiatives that have emerged from the media narrative have troubling consequences for a shrinking Canadian civil society.
Marijuana and the Origins of Mexico's War on Drugs
Author: Isaac Campos
Publisher: Univ of North Carolina Press
Historian Isaac Campos combines wide-ranging archival research with the latest scholarship on the social and cultural dimensions of drug-related behavior in this telling of marijuana's remarkable history in Mexico. Introduced in the sixteenth century by the Spanish, cannabis came to Mexico as an industrial fiber and symbol of European empire. But, Campos demonstrates, as it gradually spread to indigenous pharmacopoeias, then prisons and soldiers' barracks, it took on both a Mexican name--marijuana--and identity as a quintessentially "Mexican" drug. A century ago, Mexicans believed that marijuana could instantly trigger madness and violence in its users, and the drug was outlawed nationwide in 1920. Home Grown thus traces the deep roots of the antidrug ideology and prohibitionist policies that anchor the drug-war violence that engulfs Mexico today. Campos also counters the standard narrative of modern drug wars, which casts global drug prohibition as a sort of informal American cultural colonization. Instead, he argues, Mexican ideas were the foundation for notions of "reefer madness" in the United States. This book is an indispensable guide for anyone who hopes to understand the deep and complex origins of marijuana's controversial place in North American history.

Cannie Shapiro returns in the acclaimed novel from the author of Good in Bed,All Fall Downand the forthcoming Who Do You Love! It's been almost thirteen years since we last saw Cannie Shapiro, the heroine of Good in Bed, whose journey towards happy-ever-after made millions of women the world over laugh, cry and recognise themselves. The last decade of Cannie's life has brought some surprises. Her life story, in fictional form, became an unexpected bestseller, and Cannie has since retreated from fame's fallout, writing science-fiction under a pen name and praying that all her daughter inherited from her father, Cannie's ex-boyfriend Bruce Guberman, are her curls and her eye-colour, and not his predilection for smoking pot. Meanwhile Cannie's best friend, Samantha, is looking for love in all the wrong places, and Cannie's husband, Peter, has decided that he'd like to have a baby, and the family's first choice for a surrogate is none other than Cannie's flamboyant kid sister ...
New Covenant and Old Covenant
Author: James Robert Sabolick
Publisher: Dorrance Publishing
Most Christians have it all mixed up about Jesus Christ and the church out of Peter¿s rock. For James Robert Sabolick, the truth and the way started quite inconspicuously. It all started at Fort Pitt Bridge in 1976. Since then, his life had been nothing but an unending shredding of sinful ways, revelations through dreams and messages out of distinct events in his life and family members. There were those countless times he had drowned in alcohol and attempted to end his life while in the US Navy. A marriage brought forth the death of a son a few days after birth. Yet, not even the end of the marriage and life on the streets of Florida could sway his growing faith, which started in 1976 all the way to Mount Olives to bury his covenant, a Hebrew bullet, on the way to Mount Tsijon (Zion).
Life on America's Marijuana Frontier
Author: Emily Brady
Publisher: Hachette UK
In the vein of Susan Orlean's The Orchid Thief and Deborah Feldman's Unorthodox, journalist Emily Brady journeys into a secretive subculture--one that marijuana built. Humboldt: Life on America's Marijuana Frontier Say the words "Humboldt County" to a stranger and you might receive a knowing grin. The name is infamous, and yet the place, and its inhabitants, have been nearly impenetrable. Until now. Humboldt is a narrative exploration of an insular community in Northern California, which for nearly 40 years has existed primarily on the cultivation and sale of marijuana. It's a place where business is done with thick wads of cash and savings are buried in the backyard. In Humboldt County, marijuana supports everything from fire departments to schools, but it comes with a heavy price. As legalization looms, the community stands at a crossroads and its inhabitants are deeply divided on the issue--some want to claim their rightful heritage as master growers and have their livelihood legitimized, others want to continue reaping the inflated profits of the black market. Emily Brady spent a year living with the highly secretive residents of Humboldt County, and her cast of eccentric, intimately drawn characters take us into a fascinating, alternate universe. It's the story of a small town that became dependent on a forbidden plant, and of how everything is changing as marijuana goes mainstream.

Everything About Pot That We Could Remember
Author: Doug Benson,Tony Camin,Arj Barker
Publisher: Crown Archetype
Sweet ass! A 200ish-page book about pot and pot-related stuff. Can you believe somebody paid these guys to publish a whole book about The Chronic? Man, that is so sick! The Marijuana-Logues started as an Off-Broadway show, consisting of these three guys, Arj Barker, Doug Benson, and Tony Camin sitting on stools and elucidating and illustrating the wisdom of weed. Since you probably never got motivated enough to actually go see the show, now is your chance to enjoy such gems as, “Some people say marijuana is a crutch—yeah, crutches help people walk. We think that’s a good thing.” In this sturdy volume (not made from hemp paper, so don’t try to smoke it), you’ll find many highly creative essays on the virtues of that fine fine plant, as well as some herben poetry, “high-ku,” marijuana fun facts, marijuana fun snacks, and other up-here stuff [point to your head]. Some choice buds from The Marijuana-Logues: ARJ BARKER’S FIRST TIME The first time I smoked pot, I was in the back seat of my older brother’s car. It must have been some pretty good weed, too, because I’m an only child. THINGS YOU WILL NEVER HEAR DOUG BENSON SAY WHEN HE IS OFFERED SOME MARIJUANA No. FEMALE COMPOTABILITY by Tony Camin My girlfriend thinks that I smoke too much pot. I, on the other hand, don’t think I smoke enough pot, because if I did, I’d be finished. And I’m not. Look, we all have our vices: I like to smoke a little weed; she likes to feed the baby. Different strokes for different folks. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Church. Hip-Hop. Culture.
From its roots in the South Bronx over thirty years ago, hip-hop has swept across continents and oceans, shaping the music and mores of urban culture. It is more than just music. Hip-hop is a lifestyle that encompasses attitude, fashion, and a largely counter-Christian worldview. Transcending ethnic, geographic, generational, and economic barriers, hip-hop places one of the church’s biggest mission opportunities right outside our windows.Un.orthodox equips church leaders and parents alike to understand and engage a culture that is as near as our schools, our communities, and even our homes. Author Tommy Kyllonen has seen hip-hop from the inside as a recording artist, as well as through the eyes of a pastor whose congregation has set the model for a groundswell of young urban churches focusing on hip-hop culture. Offering unique perspectives on the history, current state, and future of the hip-hop movement, Kyllonen shows what a hip-hop targeted ministry can look like in worship, outreach, evangelism, service, and discipleship.Using his own story as an example, Tommy shows how you can combine the hip-hop culture with faith.
The Growing Threat Of Species Invasions
Author: Yvonne Baskin
Publisher: Island Press
The human love of novelty and desire to make one place look like another, coupled with massive increases in global trade and transport, are creating a growing economic and ecological threat. The same forces that are rapidly "McDonaldizing" the world's diverse cultures are also driving us toward an era of monotonous, weedy, and uniformly impoverished landscapes. Unique plant and animal communities are slowly succumbing to the world's "rats and rubbervines" -- animals like zebra mussels and feral pigs, and plants like kudzu and water hyacinth -- that, once moved into new territory, can disrupt human enterprise and well-being as well as native habitats and biodiversity. From songbird-eating snakes in Guam to cheatgrass in the Great Plains, "invasives" are wreaking havoc around the world. In A Plague of Rats and Rubbervines, widely published science writer Yvonne Baskin draws on extensive research to provide an engaging and authoritative overview of the problem of harmful invasive alien species. She takes the reader on a worldwide tour of grasslands, gardens, waterways, and forests, describing the troubles caused by exotic organisms that run amok in new settings and examining how commerce and travel on an increasingly connected planet are exacerbating this oldest of human-created problems. She offers examples of potential solutions and profiles dedicated individuals worldwide who are working tirelessly to protect the places and creatures they love. While our attention is quick to focus on purposeful attempts to disrupt our lives and economies by releasing harmful biological agents, we often ignore equally serious but much more insidious threats, those that we inadvertently cause by our own seemingly harmless actions. A Plague of Rats and Rubbervines takes a compelling look at this underappreciated problem and sets forth positive suggestions for what we as consumers, gardeners, travelers, nurserymen, fishermen, pet owners, business people -- indeed all of us who by our very local choices drive global commerce -- can do to help.
