Churchill and Chartwell: The Untold Story of Churchill's Houses and Gardens
picture
Features:-
This book is a biography of Winston Churchill through the houses he lived in and the gardens he made. It culminates with the full story of his purchase, alteration and creation of Chartwell, Kent, where he lived for more than 40 years before and after the war, and which is now, in keeping with his intentions, owned and run by the National Trust. Churchill was born amidst the splendour of Blenheim Palace but, ever a restless spirit, he owned or rented many houses, both grand and relatively modest, over the course of his long life, including country retreats, modern town apartments and, as First Lord of the Admiralty, Admiralty House. But it was his house at Chartwell that would be for ever associated with his name. Based on extensive and scholarly archive study, this unique book brings to light an array of previously unpublished details and reveals a fascinating side to Britain's greatest war leader.

My Darling Mr Asquith: The Extraordinary Life and Times of Venetia Stanley
picture
Features:-
This is the true story of one woman's life set against the backcloth of the great events of the first half of the twentieth century. Its subject, the Hon Venetia Stanley was remarkable for what she was, what she did and the people she knew. So it is a tale that embraces politics, sex, scandal, love and betrayal, the English aristocracy, the Asquiths and the Churchills, but also touches on strange (and some very strange) goings on in the social world of society in the 1920s and 1930s, homosexuality in high places, cross-dressing, gardening, the power of money, derring-do, pioneering aviation, antisemitism and racial prejudice, the Boer war, the Spanish civil war, two world wars, evacuee children, famine in the Soviet Union, the most remarkable match in the history of cricket, the Curragh incident, the Easter uprising, Lady Diana Cooper, Lloyd George, Lawrence of Arabia, Scott of the Antarctic, Ernest Hemingway, the Rothschilds, Beaverbrook, Gandhi, the Amritsar massacre and the Raj, the financial problems of Brazil, a cast of hundreds (many of them slightly odd) and much else besides.Isaiah Berlin said after meeting her '...handsome, smart, awful woman, celebrated society wit I am told, but quite genuinely clever and entertaining, only very awful'. Churchill's daughter, the late Mary Soames who knew her well as a close friend and relative said to me, 'She was rum, you know!'

Young Gardener
picture
Features:-
What’s more fun for a child than playing in the dirt? Turning that activity into gardening, says author/illustrator team Stefan and Beverley Buczacki. In Young Gardener, the Buczackis take a green, organic, environmentally friendly approach to an activity they show can be enjoyed year-round. The idea is hands-on gardening that combines useful information with fun projects that can be done by children, alone or with adults. Aimed at young readers with gardens large or small, plain backyards, or simply indoor potted plants, Young Gardener is based on seasons, with sections devoted to early, middle, and late parts of each season. For example, spring gives the opportunity to sow seeds indoors — in the house or a greenhouse — and transfer them outside when they’re hardy enough to survive. The authors also discuss wildlife and conservation issues, such as bats, mice, and even mysterious creatures like voles. Written in simple language and illustrated throughout with color photographs and black-and-white illustrations, Young Gardener captures children’s imaginations and excites their enthusiasm for the natural world outside — or even inside — their back door.
