Reviews

""Informative and inspirational and will definitely play a role in the evolution of our new food future." -- Journal of Agricultural & Environmental Ethics" --


""Olson's collection of Still's work is complete, but it is so much more that that -- it is a tribute to on eof Kentucky's finest writing minds, and in particular a showcase for how the 'Dean of Appalachian Literature' arrived at a level to which so many aspire. For those interested in Still's work or even in seeing the development of an excellent creative writer, The Hills Remember: The Complete Short Stories of James Still is a fantastic tribute to the progression of the creative-writing mind, as well as lasting tribute to one of Kentucky's own." -- Becky L. Meadows, H-Net Review" --


""The central effort of Growing stories from India is to identify a more mutually beneficial human-earth relationship.... Her idea of a more natural way for agriculture will certainly appeal strongly to India's farmers, most of whom are keen to rediscover their organic roots." -- The Hindu" --


""This book is highly significant for its stunning cross-cultural leaps that work. Sanford's call to environmentalists to turn their minds from wilderness to agriculture is of enduring significance." -- Ann Grodzins Gold, author of In the Time of Trees and Sorrows: Nature, Power, and Memory in Rajasthan" --


""This important book will be an early benchmark for the study of food, culture, and religion. It will endure and be quoted in years to come." -- Christopher Key Chapple, author of Yoga and the Luminous: Patanjali's Spiritual Path to Freedom" --


""This is a book on theory, the environment and ecology, the production of myth, and the role of etiquette and metaphor. It is also a book of stories and of literary and cultural history. It will be pilloried by both the political right as well as the far left, but it should be essential reading for classes in religion and ecology, or in Indian mythology and cultural history. It will force any reader to think twice before going to the next big box food emporium [...]"" -- Frederick Smith, Religious Studies Review

"All in all, Growing Stories from India provides readers with an entry into challenging scholarly territory. The last decade has seen a rapid increase in publications focused on food, agriculture, and ecology and this book is a germane and well-timed addition to this growing discussion. This is a book worth reading. Despite a few minor quibbles, I believe that the questions raised and the concepts explored in this text are both memorable and important. Sanford's focus on narrative and her fearless interdisciplinarity represents a worthy and unique contribution that will undoubtedly find its way onto a diverse set of syllabi and bibliographies for years to come." -- Matthew T. Riley


"Sanford's...fearless interdiciplinarity represents a worthy and unique contribution that will undoubtedly find its way onto a diverse set of syllabi and bibliographies for years to come." -- Worldviews

"Whitney's new book is informative and inspirational and will definitely play a role in the evolution of our new food future." -- Frederick Kirschenmann, Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics
