Making Soap from Scratch is a great book for the DIY soap maker. Every detail in the process of soap making is covered without being overwhelming. Small batch and bulk soap making are both thoroughly covered. I was very impressed with the chapter detailing the actual recipes. The recipes cover everything from the super luxurious to the more economical. Resources and suppliers are also listed to make gathering all the ingredients very easy. This book will be an invaluable reference tool in my personal soap making practice.

White takes on the chicken farming industry by looking at its world through the eyes of the chicken. Pickin is a free-range chicken with a serious problem. When a freak accident blows her away from her happy farm, she finds herself in the wicked land of the factory chicken farm. Trying to find a way home, Pickin must travel through the horrors of the poultry sheds. Along the journey, she encounters many of her kind: the abused chicks, a refuge rooster, the jailed battery hens and some busty broiler chickens. But will Pickin find a way back home before she faces the terrifying processing plant?
All the whimsy of a children’s book and all the reality of how chickens are treated before they reach our dinner tables.
“Don’t you ever go out and take a dust bath?” asked Pickin.
One of the hen’s inmates looked up at Pickin. “A dust bath! Listen, chick, when you’re doin’ time like us, the only thing you get is warm water, rotten food, and treated badly.”
Gregory White uses an adult themed picture book edged with humor to relate the animal cruelty horrors associated with the mass production chicken industry. Free range chicken farmers, PETA members and those of us that are just decent people with a love and respect of animals should make sure this book gets in the hands of as many Tyson buyers as humanly possible.
