Heritage Turkeys are ideal for small-scale farming as they show a higher level of immunity to disease and stress over their commercial counterparts. This beautifully presented and highly acclaimed book puts the turkey back where it belongs and covers its illustrious history, the breeds, housing, equipment, breeding, feeding, development, ailments, legislation, sales, processing, dispatching for the table as well as keeping turkeys as pets. Many of the 200 photographs have been especially commissioned for the book and it more than demonstrates that the turkey, so often regarded as the Cinderella of the farm world, can play a significant role in increasing profits for the small-scale farm enterprise.

Anyone who laments the excesses of Christmas might consider the Puritans of colonial Massachusetts: they simply outlawed the holiday. The Puritans had their reasons, since Christmas was once an occasion for drunkenness and riot, when poor "wassailers extorted food and drink from the well-to-do. In this intriguing and innovative work of social history, Stephen Nissenbaum rediscovers Christmas's carnival origins and shows how it was transformed, during the nineteenth century, into a festival of domesticity and consumerism. Drawing on a wealth of period documents and illustrations, Nissenbaum charts the invention of our current Yuletide traditions, from St. Nicholas to the Christmas tree and, perhaps most radically, the practice of giving gifts to children. Bursting with detail, filled with subversive readings of such seasonal classics as "A Visit from St. Nicholas and A Christmas Carol, The Battle for Christmas captures the glorious strangeness of the past even as it helps us better understand our present. From the Trade Paperback edition.
