Reviews

"This book is a lively, personal journey through one man's efforts to make sustainably grown food available and affordable for regular folks. It's a heartening but realistic take on what needs to happen--emphasis on need! Bravo, Mark!"--Meryl Streep

"A good combination of solid research and affirmative testimonials."--Kirkus Reviews "Food Rebels tells the stories of unsung heroes in the food movement--everyday people who realized that they had the power to change the way food and farming work in their communities and in the world, and did something about it. With these stories, Mark Winne inspires us and challenges us to take a stand for good, clean, fair, and affordable food for all." " --Josh Viertel, president of Slow Food USA "It's rare for a single voice to speak so clearly to the many points of our lives that are touched by food. Mark's approach is simple, humble, truthful, eloquent, and powerful. With stories ranging from Native American communities to Korea, Mark's work proves the global importance and impact of food."--Michel Nischan, chef and president/CEO of Wholesome Wave "Aside from having one the best book titles of the year, this is one tome you'll want to gobble up if you worry about the pernicious effects of the industrial food system on our health, democracy, and souls." --Santa Fe Literary News "To Santa Fe food activist Mark Winne, the food on our plates is about democracy. It's about having food choices -- ones that Winne thinks industrial agriculture is systematically reducing.Whether it is the fight over genetically modified seeds or who benefits from the massive federal Farm Bill, Winne thinks this food fight is one all consumers need to join in... "--The Santa Fe New Mexican "Mark Winne has been working in the galleys of the U.S. food movement for 40 years, before there was a food movement of any note. He's a social movement guy as much as a foodie guy. The title of his new book -Food Rebels, Guerilla Gardeners, and Smart-Cookin' Mamas: Fighting Back in an Age of Industrial Agriculture -- shows the role his warm and quirky sense of humor plays in allowing him to stay active in grassroots organizations for so long..."--www.wayneroberts.ca From the Hardcover edition.
