First Book of Farming
Catalog #: SKU1295

The most successful farmers of the present day are those who work in harmony with the forces and laws of nature which control the growth and development of plants and animals. These men have gained their knowledge of those laws and forces by careful observation, experiment and study. The lessons of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita should not go unheeded. Our way of life is at the mercy of the Universe and as such it expects us to be prepared. This book is another of the books TGS seeks to make available for everyone that may in the future face an end, temporary or permanent, in their way of living.

Folk-Lore of Plants

Great Systems of Yoga

Green Manuring : Principles And Practice
Catalog #: SKU1753

TGS Survival Books Reprint: AGRICULTURE has been, and as far as can now be foreseen, always will be, the basic industry of the human race. Men must be fed even though they have to do without luxuries. Some recent writers have viewed the race between population increase and food supplies with alarm; others have voiced the thoughtless optimism of ignorance. Neither extreme view is warranted.

Hemp Hurds as Paper Making Material
Catalog #: SKU2912

Hemp hurds are used to a limited extent for barnyard litter and stable bedding, as a substitute for sawdust in packing ice, and, in rare instances, for fuel. They are not regarded as having a commercial value for any of these uses, though they are doubtless worth at least $1 per ton on the farm when used for stable bedding. They are a waste product, without value for other purposes which might compete with their use for paper stock.

Hindu-Yogi Science Of Breath
Catalog #: SKU1037

Yoga is divided into several branches, ranging from that which teaches the control of the body, to that which teaches the attainment of the highest spiritual development. In the work we will not go into the higher phases of the subject, except when the "Science of Breath" touches upon the same. The "Science of Breath" touches Yoga at many points, and although chiefly concerned with the development and control of the physical, has also its psychic side, and even enters the field of spiritual development.
