The Littlest Angel Angela Adams refuses to have anything to do with her unborn baby’s reluctant father—much less marry him! True, her pregnancy was unexpected, but Clint Brady didn’t have to act so dazed when she announced her impending motherhood. And while Clint admits his reaction could have been more enthusiastic, the thought of baby bottles and diaper pins was enough to rattle even a rugged rancher like himself. But now that the shock has passed, nothing is going to come between Clint and fatherhood—not even stubborn Angela! Natural Born Trouble Texan Dani Adams was through with single dads. Never again would she brush away their children’s tears or bandage scraped knees. Instead, she’d care for the sick animals brought to her veterinary practice. She’d find fulfillment—without the heartache. Then sexy single dad Duke Jenkins and his adorable twins moved to town, and he was determined to make Dani his kids’ mother! His soul-searing kisses, warm embraces and his children’s antics are quickly melting her resolve. But is Dani heading for another disappointment…or down the aisle to meet her groom?

Limestone hills, cold spring-fed streams, live oaks and cedar, old German towns—the Texas Hill Country may well be the most beloved region of the state. Unlike West Texas with its dramatic expanses of plains and sky, or the eastern Piney Woods in their lush fecundity, the Hill Country never overwhelms. Its intimate landscapes of rolling hills, fields of wildflowers, and cypress-shaded rivers impart a peace and serenity that draws the urban-weary from across Texas and even beyond. In this volume, two of the state’s most respected artists join their talents to create an unsurpassed portrait of the Texas Hill Country. With an unerring eye for landscape photography, Wyman Meinzer distills the visual essence of the Hill Country—long vistas of oak-and-cedar-covered hills, clear streams running over rocks, bluebonnets turning fields into lapis-colored seas. His photographs also go beyond the familiar to reveal surprising contrasts and juxtapositions—prickly pear cactus delicately frosted with ice, black-eyed susans growing among granite boulders. With an equally true feeling for what makes the Hill Country distinct, John Graves writes about the land and its people and how they have shaped one another. He pays tribute to the tenacious German pioneers who turned unpromising land into farms and ranches, the Anglo-American “cedar-choppers” who harvested the region’s pest plant, and even the generations of vacationers who have found solace in the Hill Country. As Graves observes, “since well over a century ago, the region has been a sort of reference point for natives of other parts of the state, and mention of it usually brings smiles and nods.” Together, John Graves and Wyman Meinzer once again demonstrate that they are the foremost artists of the Texas landscape. The portrait they create in images and words is as close as you can come to the heart of the Hill Country without being there.

A celebration of the unique flavours and ingredients of Sri Lanka, lovingly presented for the North American home cook. Ruwanmali Samarakoon-Amunugama's childhood memories of visits to her parents' homeland in Sri Lanka were filled with colourful trips to the market, lively, happy meals with her extended family, and long, scenic car rides from the capital of Colombo, past tea estates and farmers' stalls, into the hill country around Kandy. In Milk, Spice and Curry Leaves, Ruwan shares the rustic, tropical flavours of these Sri Lankan visits--sweet pineapple and mango, bitter gourd, toothsome cashews, spicy chili pepper, tart lime, and many more--in recipes designed with North American home cooks in mind. She introduces the three pillars of Sri Lankan cuisine: coconut milk, rice, and spice, and walks readers through the steps to make the two foundational Sri Lankan curry powders (roasted and unroasted). She also goes into detail on specialty products--like goraka, pandanus leaves, tamarind, and young jackfruit--always with attention to using ingredients available in North American grocery stores. With lush food photography and styling, hand-drawn illustrations, heirloom photos and ephemera, Milk, Spice and Curry Leaves is an invitation to a way of cooking and a family of traditions from the country known as "the Pearl of the Indian Ocean."

Located in the heart of the state, Texas Hill Country is the place where the four mighty continental divisions-the Rocky Mountains, the Great Western High and Low Plains, and the Gulf Coast Plains-converge. This geophysical drama results in a singular landscape and climate. Rolling hills, sparkling streams and rivers, unique vegetation, and soothing temperatures give this region a special cachet through the entire South. Gone are the one-room farmhouses of yesterday, but taking their place are homes that clearly celebrate historic details borrowed from those iconic structures. A farmer's focus was always his land, and it is land that also plays a major part in these designs, either by the placement of the rooms or how the interiors reflect and complement their environment. The terrain and its indigenous materials-stone, water, sky-now inspire architects and interior designers to create beautiful modern spaces that relate to the classic farmhouses that once dotted the land. The architecture featured here in beautiful full-color photography shows a reverence for native materials such as limestone, cedar, and cypress and the old building techniques that were handed down through generations of early European settlers. They were craftsman-stonemasons, woodworkers, blacksmiths-and their primitive architecture grew out of what they knew from the old country and what they could find to build with in their new land. Their structures were very simple and efficient, but beautiful in their use of materials and craft. Today's interior designers and architects seek to honor those traditions in well-designed new homes made for modern living.

In the heart of the Texas Hill Country lies an astonishing place called Westcave Preserve, a 76-acre nature preserve and environmental education facility in western Travis County, near Austin, that provides a sanctuary for the flora and fauna of surprisingly diverse ecosystems. Westcave has been connecting children and families to nature since 1976, when the nonprofit Westcave Preserve Corporation was established to restore and protect a popular but rapidly deteriorating picnic spot that encompassed a fern-covered grotto, an ancient rock shelter, and a spectacular forty-foot waterfall. In Discovering Westcave, Chris Caran and Elaine Davenport take readers on a walk through the beautiful preserve, which includes a 3,000-square-foot learning center, unveiling the evolutionary past of its stunning natural features and acknowledging the many people who have been a part of Westcave’s long history. The aim of this guidebook is not only to share the natural and human history of this refuge, soon to be surrounded by one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the country, but also to inspire through environmental learning a continued respect and appreciation for the natural world.
