A century of industrialization has left our food system riddled with problems, yet for solutions we look away from the land -- to nutritionists and government agencies, scientists and chefs. In a groundbreaking departure,Deeply Rooted finds answers by looking to the people who actually grow our food. Hamilton makes this vital inquiry through the stories of three unconventional farmers: Harry Lewis, an African-American dairyman in Texas who plays David to the Goliath of agribusiness corporations; Virgil Trujillo, a tenth-generation rancher in New Mexico struggling to restore agriculture as a pillar of his community; and the Podolls, a modern pioneer family in North Dakota breeding new varieties of plants to face the future's double threat: global warming and biotech food. Together, these remarkable characters and their surprising stories make the case that in order to correct what has gone wrong with the food system, we must first bring farmers back to the table.… (més)

This is the story of 3 different farmers. Each of them very different in their focus, methodolgy and region, but all of them with the same basic principles of loving the land and the food it produces.

If you enjoyed The Omnivore's Dilemma, this should go next on your to be read pile. Now that you know why you should support local farms that grow food sustainably, and now that you know why that food is better for you than a box of something off the grocery store shelf, this book can help you dig in a little further. You'll learn more about the local economies that buying local food supports. You'll learn more about dairy farming and ranching and how new varieties of vegetables can be created without splicing genomes.

Told in an engaging and interesting way, you really care for the people who are making these sustainable food practices a reality. A highly recommended book. ( )

I love the narrative in this story. Hamilton writes about three fascinating farmers and makes it a delight to read. It's definitely one of those books I didn't want to put down. ( )

There was a lot of hard work put into this book and it shows - when it comes to 21st century living, Hamilton is truly an author to watch.
