Introduction
In volume 3 of Grandma’s Natural Remedies And Ancient Recipes, you are going to get to know more about a number of different fruits, and vegetables which are going to enhance your health, and allow you to live long and prosper. These natural remedies have come down through word-of-mouth from grandmother to granddaughter, down the millenniums, in almost all the ancient civilizations, when it was the responsibility of the female of the family to make sure that her family kept healthy and survived in the times when superstition and bad hygiene was rife.
This is the reason why so many ancient remedies and herbal recipes, were used on a day to day basis, by grandma and these volumes comprise of a collection of the wisdom of the ages for all those people who believe in the power of nature to cure ailments from the root, instead of looking for chemical-based drugs to help cure them.
Remember that those were the days, when ignorance was also rife and many quacks came up with nostrums potions and brews. One can read about the most famous of them all, the witches brew in MacBeth . Grandma is not going to be putting eyes of newt and tongues of frogs in her remedies, but is going to tell us about how simple fruit juices and spices, can heal and cure common remedies.
Grandma knew all about how to remain beautiful, even when she was in her 80s and 90s. That is because she used the wisdom of ages, passed down to her, in simple rules of living.

Keep your family healthy the natural way! Read more…

Introduction:
A Portrait as we all know, are meant to tell something. It could be an achievement, position in life of one person and simply how he live that he want others to see him with his delightful expression. That may also means that it is a representation in a form of drawing, sculpture, photography or any artistic form of oneself in still time (it’s his Utopia).

An artist who makes a self-portrait knows this, since he is always moved by his passion that stimulates and drives him to make his masterpiece.

The artist that I’m referring to is not just me, but anyone who have the artist spirit in them, especially you. Yes I repeat “YOU”, as you picked this book and read it; you had take a big step to become an artist, you will be in a journey of finding yourself and you are in a right direction.

This book will help you achieve realism in doing your drawing specially portraits, believe it or not, you will be amazed of your accomplishment, also people who are close to you will be impressed, who know you will be making a living out of your Portrait drawings.

Introduction
I remember seeing Lost in the Desert as a child, and there are just some scenes which I remember. The father of a child lost in the desert believes that his child has survived a plane crash. So he gets millions of leaflets printed and airdropped all over the desert, with survival tips to his son, reassuring him that his father will find him, and all he has to do is survive.

Dirkie and his dog survived – this movie -made by Jamie Uys who then produced the hugely successful The Gods Must Be Crazy – is based on a true story. So the first point is, you need to have a will to survive.
Movies and reality apart, how is it possible for people to survive in the desert, especially in adverse weather conditions for centuries? How is it that people in the Kalahari, in the Sahara or in the Thar desert do not mind living out their lives in such bleak and harsh conditions?
Fortunately, a majority of our 21st century world is still green and does not consist of miles and miles of land with no water and no food in sight. Well there is a slight lack of knowledge here. There is food and water in the desert. It depends on us to know how to get it. This book is going to give you information, especially useful tips and techniques, on how to preserve you and survive in desert conditions, especially when you are on limited food and water supplies.

Introduction
I have already written about how to make a herb garden in another gardening book- How to make a Herb Garden – in our Gardening series, but the gardener cum herbalist is going to get an even more extensive knowledge about how to make a full-fledged herbal garden in this book.
Perfumes, juices, oils and other products extracted from seeds, leaves, shoots, and bark of the herbs have been used since the earliest times in religious ceremonies, and in cooking. Magicians used them in making mysterious potions to impress the credulous public.

Herb essential oils along with parts of herbs have long been in use down the millenniums to make natural beauty products.
The oracles of Delphi were women who had been “intoxicated” on fumes of deadly nightshade, which would make them hallucinate. And then with bay leaves in their mouths-these leaves were considered sacred to Apollo – they used to predict the future. No wonder not many could understand them or interpret their sayings. So each hearer chose the one which suited his requirements the best, and believed the Gods had spoken.

Today, these herbs are usually grown for their great value in cooking. That is why it is well worth finding a small place for herbs in any garden. The 21st century world is also slowly and steadily getting back to the idea that the herbal remedies, which were used in alternative medicine in ancient civilizations of the East and West had curative properties.
The Egyptians, Babylonians, Chinese, Mayans, Aztecs, Greek and other knowledgeable people all over the world used these herbs, and derived all the healthy benefits of them as often as they could. Read more…
