August 2014: What's Inside This Month's Edition?
The art of smoking fish, cool foods for hot days, Henry David Thoreau as you seldom see him, George Washington as you might wish you had, and more. Here are highlights of the August issue . . .
Calendar: The Moon rules. Learn about the lunar perigee, the “supermoon” (and why the Perseid meteor shower doesn’t have a chance), and the Moon Mania that had readers in awe and an astronomer in the dark.
Food: What’s cold and white and provides relief from the summer heat? (No, it’s not snow.) Yogurt! For centuries, Mediterranean cultures have used yogurt in numerous dishes because its creamy tartness cools and soothes. Try a few recipes.
Anniversary: Sneak a peek behind the door of a truly august affair 225 years ago, as you read the intimate and telling diary of Sen. William MacLay on the occasion of his first dinner with the president of the United States—none other than George Washington.
Outdoors: Going fishing? Try smoking your catch! (No, not with a pipe.) Treat yourself and friends to a delectable meal to remember. Also included: times and tips to ensure that you hook something!
Nature: In tribute to one of America’s greatest naturalists, Henry David Thoreau, on the 160th anniversary of his memoir Walden, a collection of observations in his own words; plus, from one of his friends, guidance on the correct pronunciation of his surname.
Don't miss a minute—or worse, a whole Monthly—of weather updates, seasonal recipes, timely garden tips, sky sightings, folklore, home remedies, historic as well as classically hilarious features, and much more. Every Monthly.
