People have been living small for centuries for reasons of practicality, mobility, flexibility or personal choice. More recently, tiny homes have become the answer for many who need somewhere affordable to live and possess the creativity and energy to create something different. A small home can be relatively cheap to build or convert and give its owner choices; reflecting the way they want to live and their impact on the world. They can be stunningly beautiful and imaginative. They ask their owners to be discerning about what belongings they have – what is necessity and what is beauty. The choices are individual and can be seen as part of a movement away from money and property slavery to a more simple and connected way of living. Gill Heriz has brought together a collection of some of the most incredible small homes, from containers in the city to cabins in the countryside. A traditional Mongolian yurt provides off-grid living for its owners, Firefly and Johann. A portable cabin offers a chic, flexible space for its owners, Anna and Ross. There is a reclusive shack set in a woodland, a converted mountainside bothy, and a log cabin pod near the coast.
Bees have always been friends to man, even way back in prehistoric times.

The book pays special attention to the dangers these hard-working insects currently face due to pollution and harmful human behaviour that risk interfering heavily with the life of a species that ought to be defended at all costs!
We can see them fly gracefully from flower to flower with their multi-coloured wings: they are butterflies, the most admired and collected of insects; like bees, they are vital for plant pollination, which is why we have recently started protecting them as their numbers are significantly dwindling. Through this book you will get to know them better, explore their physiology, their defence and reproduction mechanisms and their most noteworthy features, and uncover the secrets behind the complicated patterns and amazing colours that characterize their appearance. We will also focus on the dangers that these wonderful insects face today due to pollution and human intervention that is putting at serious risk the life ofa species that we need to protect at any cost, for example by following the instructions at the end of the book that explain how to set out your garden or balcony in order to attract - and help - these most heavenly insects.
