NORTH CAROLINA UNIONISTS AND THE FIGHT OVER SUCCESSION

NORTH CAROLINA UNIONISTS AND THE FIGHT OVER SUCCESSION

$21.99
New/Used: New
More Info
Before the Civil War, North Carolina was divided by the battle over secession. Some state leaders remained loyal to the Union because they saw the potential for compromise with Northern states. William Alexander Graham helped broker the Compromise of 1850. John Motley Morehead and Jonathan Worth led the campaign against secession in early 1861. Most continued to serve their state under the Confederacy. Although Zebulon B. Vance opposed secession, he served in the Confederate army and as governor of the state during the Civil War. Historian and author Steve M. Miller tells the story of the Tar Heel Unionists who bravely fought to steer their state away from the disastrous future they foresaw.

PLANTING NATIVE TO ATTRACT BIRDS

PLANTING NATIVE TO ATTRACT BIRDS

$24.95
More Info
Welcoming birds to your yard isn't about choosing the right feeders and bird food. If you want to attract the widest range of birds to your home, you need to plant a diversity of native plants. Why go green? Native plants live longer; they are drought resistant, take less water and fertilizer, they cost less, are less work and easier to maintain. And a big plus--they are good for the environment. In 2007, Douglas Tallamy published the groundbreaking book, Bringing Nature Home, on going native to protect wildlife. Since then Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, the National Wildlife Federation, and National Audubon have all endorsed and encouraged gardening with native plants. Planting Native to Attract Birds to Your Yard is the first book to cover planting native to specifically attract birds. The book recommends plants for all types of backyards, no matter how large or small--from large plots to container gardens. Sorenson gives state-specific recommendations for 31 Eastern U.S. states--including and east of Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana to the East Coast, and from the Canadian border to the Gulf Coast--for native plants that support birds during the four seasons. The book covers the full gamut of native plants--nearly 200 species of trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, and perennials--and gives details on why specific plants are bird friendly and how to choose plants that work successfully in attractive home landscapes. It also includes dramatic color photos of nearly 70 bird species. Birders, gardeners, and landscapers--all who love birds and beautiful gardens--will find this book a must.
