Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"In this memoir of mishaps and lessons learned, Fine shares his yearlong trek to turn his newly bought New Mexico ranch into a green and sustainable environment with as little carbon fuel as possible. From using two very lovable goats for his organic food production to transitioning into a biofuel engine for his truck and even installing solar panels, Fine balances the troubling decisions Americans must consider while also revealing a host of unexpected benefits. He advocates that a gradual process, despite having to deal with moments of hypocrisy, is essential for it to work. Fine's wry narration blends well with his often humorous and sarcastic tone. The energy and enthusiasm of his reading indicates that Fine not only relished the events but is happy to share his experience with listeners. Simultaneous release with the Viking hardcover (Reviews, Jan. 7)." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Fine recounts how he vowed to go green by growing his own food, using only the sun for power, and consume little or no fossil fuel for an entire year in this chronicle that is both a hilarious romp and an inspiring call to action. Unabridged. 7 CDs.
