The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms. In a witty, offbeat style, Amy Stewart takes us on a subterranean adventure and introduces us to our planet's most important gatekeeper: the humble earthworm. It's true that the earthworm is small, spineless, and blind, but its effect on the ecosystem is profound. With Darwin as her inspiration, Stewart investigates the earthworm's astonishing realm, talks to oligochaetologists who have devoted their lives to unearthing the complex web of life beneath our feet, and observes the thousands of worms in her own garden.

Flower Confidential: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful in the Business of Flowers. Takes us inside the world of hybridizers, geneticists, farmers, and florists around the world who have worked to invent, manufacture, and sell flowers that are bigger, brighter, and sturdier than anything nature could provide. What has been gained and what has been lost in tinkering with Mother Nature? Should we care that some roses have lost their scent? Or that most flowers are sprayed with pesticides? As Kindle | More…

From the Ground Up: The Story of a First Garden. A chronicle of the seedlings and weeds, cats and compost, worms and watering that transform a tiny plot of earth into a glorious garden.

From the Ground Up tells the story of a young woman’s determination to create a garden in which the plants struggle to live up to the gardener’s vision. As Kindle | More…
