If Gloria Steinem Tells You To Do Something, We Think You’d Better Listen!

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

GenerationRoeWe’re absolutely thrilled and honored to tell you that not only has Ms. Magazine named GENERATION ROE one of their Great Reads for Winter 2013 but also that their founder Gloria Steinem herself recently praised the book, saying: “Before and after Roe v. Wade, a third of all American women has needed an abortion at some time in her life, yet instead of a subject of health care, this has become subject of secrecy. To break the spell, read Generation Roe by Sarah Erdreich. She replaces lies with honesty and myth with reality.”

Monday, February 11th, 2013

GenerationRoeThis year marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, yet the future of abortion rights has never looked more uncertain. In her bold new book, GENERATION ROE, Sarah Erdreich looks at the new generation of activists who are still fighting to protect the right to choose. 

“In her first book, journalist and women’s health advocate Erdreich delivers a passionate study of the past, current, and future state of the pro-choice movement in America. This is a thoughtful and comprehensive treatment of one side of an emotionally charged topic,” says Publishers Weekly of the book, forthcoming in March from Seven Stories Press.

Collecting Some Nice Reviews

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Next month, Sasquatch Books will publish THE COLLECTOR by Jack Nisbet, a fascinating look at the life of a 19th-century botanist, and we’re pleased that Booklist has already had some nice things to say about it:

Intrepid. Indefatigable. Enthusiastic. Enduring. The adjectives used to describe pioneering botanist David Douglas are nearly as extensive as the list of plants this resourceful explorer introduced to the world. From the towering fir that bears his name to lowly alpine mosses, Douglas’s extensive horticultural discoveries fueled the insatiable British and European appetite for exotic plants and secured his legacy as one of the most prolific and fearless plant-hunters of the nineteenth century. Historian and naturalist Nisbet traces the unlikely evolution of this audacious adventurer from his early days as an apprentice gardener in his native Britain to the rough-and-tumble years spent traversing the daunting terrain of the Pacific Northwest and beyond in search of new species of trees, shrubs, flowers, and herbs. The result is an exhilarating biography that provides an entertaining portrait of the unfettered determination that drove one of the giants in the field of botanical exploration and infused the young nation he viewed with a keen and zealous spirit.
