Summer comes on bright and hot as a firecracker, bursting with blackberries and watermelon. The air is filled with freshly-cut grass and barbecued chicken, trees in full green furl, garden hoses hissing, the crack of a baseball bat, the gleeful shouts of children. It's the time of year when we recall the long lazy summer days of childhood and recapture the joy with picnics, camp-outs, backyard parties and family reunions.

So make a tall glass of lemonade, stretch out in a lawn chair and browse with us as we savor each summer day, as luscious and sweet as that first bite of watermelon! Hardcover, 128 pages.

|How to start a tradition
This is one of a series of Gooseberry Patch books that are filled with hard-to-find, practical and fun recipes appropriate to the season/holiday, and short, paragraph or so, descriptions from around the country of traditions associated with that time of year. The book includes suggestions for everything from gifts to give, to decorating for parties and entertaining guests, to cooking, Though perfect for anyone, as a senior preparing to enter the "real world" for the first time, I think it's especially valuable for anyone who believes that the little things can change a big world, and wants some cheap and practical ideas for how to start out.
