About the Author

Howard-Yana Shapiro, Ph.D., is vice president of agriculture for Seeds of Change, the largest certified organic seed company in the United States. A two-time Ford Foundation Fellow, a Fulbright Scholar, and a National Endowment for the Arts Award recipient, he is a former university professor and a respected expert in world sustainable agricultural systems.

Shapiro began his work in Europe more than twenty-five years ago and later moved to Latin America, particularly the Oaxaca Valley of Mexico, the highlands of Guatemala, and the altiplano of the Andes. In the United States, his work has been centered in northern New Mexico, where he lives with his wife, Nancy, on the banks of the Rio Grande on land that has been farmed continuously for more than 3,000 years.

He has been widely quoted in print and broadcast media, including Organic Gardening, Sunset, Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Chicago Sun-Times, The Guardian, Australian Broadcast Corporation, CBS, and National Public Radio. He has also addressed agricultural/economics meetings in the United States, Latin America, Australia, and Asia.


John Harrisson is a freelance writer with more than fourteen books on Southwestern and Hawaiian foods and cooking to his credit.
