Newton looks at the importance of growing and buying food locally with A NATION OF FARMERS: DEFEATING THE FOOD CRISIS ON AMERICAN SOIL. He examines the limits and dangers of a globalized food system and how returning to basics is our best hope.
The book argues that we need to make self-provisioning, once the most ordinary of human activities, central to our lives. The results will be better food, better health, better security, and freedom from corporations that don’t have our interests at heart.
This is critical reading for anyone who eats and cares about high-quality food.
