Alison Pockat, a landscape architect with a passion for natural systems, has completed her new book “Adam’s Land”: an exciting tale about Adam who rides in a bubble and with a puff of breeze, ends up in a tree. He finds friends and excitement in his backyard as he tries to go back to his normal size. Along the way, he gets to know a number of organisms like fungi, a bee, a wood roach, a cricket, an ant, and others who help him and also teach him about their lives and how they work to make a life, a home, and incidentally a great soil for his garden.

According to Pockat, “When I’m not working on site plans, I spend time roaming local woods, on the trails of the nature preserve that borders my backyard, and on local greenways and trails in the area near my home. I also spend a great deal of time working in my garden. I have written newspaper and magazine articles, but most recently, I have a blog, The Home Site, which is available at"

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Alison Pockat’s educational work although fiction, describes the very real aspects of soil and its production, life in a snag, and issues related to water from storms and how it impacts streams.

After meeting a number of organisms, Adam goes back into a bubble to visit his soil friends and ends up being blown into a snag, a seemingly lifeless tree. With the help of a squirrel, Trouble, he and Kit, his friend the cricket, travel down the snag in their bubble. They meet the creatures who live in the dead tree. Emerging out of a hole in the base of the snag, they are blown into a storm. Kit is able to leap out of the bubble and Adam travels in the bubble down the hill on storm runoff. He ends up in a pool of the creek. Along the way, he gets to know about storm water and how it affects the creatures to have to live in it.

Readers who wish to experience this enthralling work can purchase “Adam’s Land” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
