"'Are you not frequently idle?' 'Never, brother. When we are not engaged in our traffic we are engaged in our relaxations.'"-BORROW. On the smooth beaches and in the silent bush, where time is not regulated by formalities or shackled by conventions, there delicious lapses-fag-ends of the day to be utilised in a dreamy mood which observes and accepts the happenings of Nature without disturbing the shyest of her manifestations or permitting 'the-mind to dwell on any but the vaguest speculations. Such idle moments are mine. Let these pages tell of their occupation. As the years pass it is proved that the administration of the affairs of an island, the settled population of which is limited to three, involves pleasant though exacting duties. It is a gainful government-not gainful in the accepted sense, but in all that vitally matters-personal freedom, absence of irksome regulations remindful of the street, liberty to enjoy the mood of the moment and to commune with Nature in her most fascinating aspects. Those who are out of touch with great and dusty events may, by way of compensation, be the more sensitive to the processes of the universe, which, though incessantly repeated, are blessed with recurrent freshness.

The lemon-trees are discarding the burden of superfluousfruit with almost immoderate haste, for the gentle flowers musthave their day. Pomeloes have put forth new growth a yardlong in less than a fortnight, and are preparing a bridal array ofblooms such as will make birds and butterflies frantic withadmiration and perfume the scene for the compass of a mile.The buff-and-yellow sprays of the mango attract millions ofhumming insects, great and small. Most of the orchids are infull flower, the coral-trees glow, the castanospermum is full ofbud, loose bunches of white fruit decorate the creeping palms, and the sunflower-tree is blotched with gold in masses. Thebirds make declaration of attachment for the season

The long-awaited second edition of this classic textbook expands on the first edition to include advances made in the last four decades, bringing the topic completely up to date. The book addresses critical issues such as whether humanity can feed itself, and whether it can do so in environmentally sound and sustainable ways. Written from agronomic, environmental, and ecological standpoints, the textbook employs a multidisciplinary approach, including policymaking and plant genetic improvements, as well as ecosystem services, climate change, biodiversity, sustainability and resilience. New chapters in this second edition focus on organic carbon in soil, soil biology, soils in relation to livestock production and forestry, and agroforestry. The new edition will again be the go-to textbook for courses on tropical soils, and a reference textbook for soil and agricultural scientists and development professionals working in the tropics.

Excerpt from Tropic Days In my previous books the endeavour was to give exact if prosaic details of life on an island off the coast of North Queensland on which a few of the original inhabitants preserved their uncontaminated ways. Here is presented another instalment of sketches of a quiet scene. Again an attempt is made to describe - not as ethnological specimens, but as men and women - types of a crude race in ordinary habit as they live, though not without a tint of imagination to embolden the better truths. I thankfully acknowledge indebtedness to my friends Mr. Charles Hedley, of the Australian Museum (Sydney); Dr. R. Hamlyn-Harris, Director of the Queensland Museum; and Mr. Dodd S. Clarke, of Townsville, N.Q., for valuable aid in the preparation of my notes for publication. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
