Abstract:

Our current way of producing food isn't healthy for us or our planet. Paying closer attention to how we eat, what food we buy, and where we make these purchases are important first attempts in creating a better food system. This book discusses the steps we can take toward sustainable living by explaining the vocabulary and principles of this movement. Douglas Gayeton has traveled the country, interviewing and photographing farmers, fishermen, dairy producers, and educators to better understand American food and farming today.
