Like feeling knowledgeable?
Then this book is for you.
The hardback is 411 pages of information.
The first half reads like a textbook, the last half more like an adventure story.
All of it, however, is interesting.
And possibly more than you ever wanted to know about where your food comes from.
Beware; after reading even part of this book, you will think differently about your food and its sources.
More aware, more questioning, more thoughtful.
Changes in what you purchase and from whom you purchase it are likely.
Here is a link to a summary (just the first part of the entire page):
