Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fields That Dream explores the lives of refugees, immigrants, former chefs, insurance brokers, and union organizers who are now small-scale sustainable farmers. Each chapter of the book combines the story of a farmer who sells at a successful farmers market with a social/cultural history of agriculture in the United States. Although based in Seattle, the farmer's stories resonate on a national level as they speak about expansion and conventional agriculture. Ultimately, Fields That Dream is a celebration of community and shows how small-scale farmers work to bridge the ever-widening gap between rural and urban areas.

Review:

"Jenny Kurzweil has opened a window on where our food comes from, on how much our food system has changed over the years, and — most important — on who grows our food and why." Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University, and author of Food Politics

Review:

"I enjoyed reading Fields That Dream. Some of us think that food comes from the grocery store, or from the person who hands it to us at a restaurant. But as author Jenny Kurzweil makes clear, there are thousands of human stories written into each bite we eat. The more I read her engaging book, the more reality and depth I experienced in my relationship to food." John Robbins, author of Diet For A New America, The Food Revolution, and the upcoming Healthy At 100

Synopsis:

The first book devoted to exploring the lives and experiences of the small-scale sustainable farmer.
