For farmers and ranchers, fencing is as much about keeping predators out as it is about keeping livestock in. Significantly less expensive than barbed wire, electric fencing is the preferred way to do both tasks efficiently, but there's never been a book dedicated to the topic. And while it's not difficult to install and maintain the electric fencing, people often get the details wrong and then wonder why the fence isn't doing its job. Ann Larkin Hansen brings decades of experience to the art of using electric fencing. In this Storey Basics guide, she explains in everyday terms how it works, the various systems one can build, how to install and maintain the three kinds of electric fence (permanent, combination permanent non-electric and electric wire offset and temporary or portable electric) and what not to do with electric fencing. For livestock raisers, Hansen also covers the basics of rotational grazing.

Shoes For The Moscow Circus
Shoes for the Moscow Circus is an atmospheric, lyrical
look behind the scenes of a number of Australian trades and industries,
many of which are fast disappearing in the modern world.
Arts writer Leta Keens, with photographer Oliver Strewe, visited
more than 25 factories and workshops - including an umbrella maker and
cricket ball factory, a taxidermist and a bicycle maker, a tannery and
a dolls' hospital - and discovered far more than simply the history
and processes involved in these trades.
With an engagingly readable
style, she also tells the stories of the characters who inhabit these
intriguing and often little known worlds.
