Flamingo Estate Editions
This holiday season, we’re proud to release our first ever collection of books — a set of six essentials for home and garden written by our heroes: Jane Goodall, Michael Pollan, Terry Tempest Williams, Alice Waters, Robin Wall Kimmerer, and the collective folk wisdom of the iconic Old Farmer’s Almanac. Each of them have moved us greatly, and we’re thrilled to share their genius with you.
This new publishing arm is a chance to celebrate our heroes without compromise, and to become a resource for change and beauty in the natural world. These are the books that give nourishment to mind and soul. Our hope is they do the same for you. Stay tuned for what’s next.
Seeds of Hope
Seeds of Hope takes us from Goodall’s home in England to her home-away-from-home deep inside the Gombe forest. She shows us the secret world of plants with all their mysteries and potential for healing our bodies as well as Planet Earth. Looking at the world as an adventurer, scientist, and devotee of sustainable foods and gardening — and setting forth simple goals we can all take to protect the plants around us — Goodall delivers an enlightening story of the wonders we can find in our own backyards.
How To Change Your Mind
A brilliant and brave investigation into the medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelics — and the spellbinding story of Michael Pollan’s own life-changing psychedelic experiences. A unique and elegant blend of science, memoir, travel writing, history, and medicine, How to Change Your Mind is the gripping account of a journey to an exciting and unexpected new frontier in our understanding of the mind, the self, and our place in the world. The true subject of Pollan’s “mental travelogue” is not just psychedelic drugs but also the eternal puzzle of human consciousness.
Robin Wall Kimmerer
Robin Wall Kimmerer shows how other living beings — asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass — offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices. In reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. Alice Waters The Art of Simple Food Perhaps more responsible than anyone for the revolution in the way we eat, cook, and think about food, Alice Waters has “single-handedly chang[ed] the American palate” according to the New York Times. Her simple but inventive dishes focus on a passion for flavor and a reverence for locally produced, seasonal foods. With an essential repertoire of timeless, approachable recipes chosen to enhance and showcase great ingredients, The Art of Simple Food is an indispensable resource for home cooks.
Terry Tempest Williams
In Erosion, Terry Tempest Williams’s fierce, spirited, and magnificent essays are timely and unsettling. The beloved writer and conservationist sizes up the continuing assaults on America’s public lands and the erosion of our commitment to the open space of democracy. These essays are Williams’s call to action, blazing a way forward through difficult and dispiriting times. She reminds us that what has been weathered, worn, and whittled away is as powerful as what remains. That our undoing is also our becoming.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac
Long recognized as North America’s most-beloved and best-selling annual, The Old Farmer’s Almanac fulfills every need and expectation as a calendar of the heavens, a time capsule of the year, an essential reference that reads like a magazine. The 2022 edition contains the fun facts, predictions, and feature items that have made it a cultural icon: traditionally 80 percent-accurate weather forecasts; notable astronomical events and time-honored astrological dates; horticultural, culinary, fashion, and other trends; historical hallmarks; best fishing days; plus too much more to mention.
Hardcover, 6 x 9 x 12.25 inches
Mother Nature is our doctor, therapist and loyal friend. We use the highest quality ingredients possible and plant one tree for every product sold.
Flamingo Estate was founded on the idea that to stand on the Earth and sing her praises is one of the most joyful and necessary privileges of being alive.
In a world that profits off our numbness, it is a radical act to wake up one's senses. Champion the slow dive, the deep breath, the bee asleep in the mallow, the drizzle of olive oil on a soft boiled egg. These are the moments that welcome joy.
“Flamingo Estate made it clear we’d found the one.”
“Delights the senses and nurtures the soul.”
“A lush hedonistic playground.”
“Bringing Mother Nature into the home.”
