Projects are included for making potpourris, wreaths, garlands, arrangements, and even lavender-spiced chicken, halibut, potato salad, madeleines, and bread. An added section on festivals and farms offers travel opportunities for those who want to experience lavender culture. A full list of sources completes this definitive book. 114pp.

Walters, Kerry S.
Against the religious backdrop of pre- and postcolonial America stands the towering figure - and mind - of Benjamin Franklin. A Renaissance man in a Revolutionary time, Franklin had interests and knowledge not only in religion but in literature, philosophy, politics, publishing, history, and scientific inquiry, among many other disciplines. Kerry S. Walters examines Franklin's search for the Divine using a similar, multifaceted approach - and in so doing has created the first extended treatment of Franklin's religious thought in thirty years. Walters brings the same intellectual range and depth to the understanding of Franklin's beliefs that Franklin brought to his own quest. What emerges from this pilgrimage into the soul of one of America's greatest figures is a very human Benjamin Franklin who grew with the accumulation of knowledge to arrive at a 'theistic perspectivism', which provided him with a philosophical explanation for the diversity of religious faiths - and a justification for the liberty of conscience he advocated throughout his life. "Benjamin Franklin and His Gods" is an original and beautifully challenging spiritual and intellectual biography. It is destined to be a classic. 213pp. N.B. Fading to spine and spine edge of rear cover. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Wahl, Ryan
Centuries before steel, fibreglass, aluminium and automation were applied to shipbuilding, early twentieth century British Columbian shipwrights hand built fish boats entirely out of wood. Guided by their intuition and knowledge of the sea, they used only basic tools to craft thousands of vessels that shaped the way shipwrights and marine architects design the boats of today. This is an illustrated story of one of those shipwrights, Ed Wahl. With the help of his six sons, Wahl created the most successful commercial fish-boat building enterprise on British Columbia's north coast, and one of the most well known boat shops on the entire British Columbia coast. Threaded with memories of Ed's sons and the crew of the Wahl boatyards, this book provides a unique look into a family business that enabled the fishing industry to be a mainstay of British Columbia's economy. 222pp.
