Growing a Farmer: How I Learned to Live Off the LandW. W. Norton & Company. 2012
Kurt Timmermeister, disillusioned with the cases of frozen chicken breasts ('chicken popsicles') and packaged foods he served at his Café Septiemes, bought ramshackled house on Vashon Island, a rural island community a short ferry ride away from downtown Seattle. He yearned to get back to what's real - in this case, real food. And while not entirely certain what that is or what it will mean, he knew he wanted to try. The rest of the book is that journey. Each chapter explores one aspect of his newfound life, describing the challenges of trying to make a farm profitable. A chapter on cows spotlights Kurt's first dairy heifer, Dinah, including her attempt to hump him and Kurt's painful hand-milking days. Another chapter focuses on Kurt's failed endeavor selling vegetables. Readers follow Kurt's evolution into a farmer while learning valuable tips (What is the best way to take honey from your beehive? How do you organize a pig slaughter? How do you ensure you make a profit?). Inspiring and practical, Growing a Farmer is a heartfelt story of one's relationship to food, the land, and the lifestyle of a farmer. We end with him hosting dinners once a week and selling cheese, uncertain he can ever make this work but enjoying every minute of it.
EchoScholastic Inc.. 2015
Music, magic, and a real-life miracle meld in this genre-defying masterpiece from Newbery Honoree Pam Muñoz Ryan! Winner of a 2016 Newbery Honor, ECHO pushes the boundaries of genre, form, and storytelling innovation. Lost and alone in a forbidden forest, Otto meets three mysterious sisters and suddenly finds himself entwined in a puzzling quest involving a prophecy, a promise, and a harmonica. Decades later, Friedrich in Germany, Mike in Pennsylvania, and Ivy in California each, in turn, become interwoven when the very same harmonica lands in their lives. All the children face daunting challenges: rescuing a father, protecting a brother, holding a family together. And ultimately, pulled by the invisible thread of destiny, their suspenseful solo stories converge in an orchestral crescendo. Richly imagined and masterfully crafted, this impassioned, uplifting, and virtuosic tour de force will resound in your heart long after the last note has been struck.
Salt Sugar FatSignal. 2013
From a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter at The New York Times comes the troubling story of the rise of the processed food industry -- and how it used salt, sugar, and fat to addict us. Salt Sugar Fat is a journey into the highly secretive world of the processed food giants, and the story of how they have deployed these three essential ingredients, over the past five decades, to dominate the North American diet. This is an eye-opening book that demonstrates how the makers of these foods have chosen, time and again, to double down on their efforts to increase consumption and profits, gambling that consumers and regulators would never figure them out. With meticulous original reporting, access to confidential files and memos, and numerous sources from deep inside the industry, it shows how these companies have pushed ahead, despite their own misgivings (never aired publicly). Salt Sugar Fat is the story of how we got here, and it will hold the food giants accountable for the social costs that keep climbing even as some of the industry's own say, "Enough already."

Plastic-FreeSkyhorse Publishing, Inc.. 2015
“Guides readers toward the road less consumptive, offering practical advice and moral support while making a convincing case that individual actions . . . do matter.” —Elizabeth Royte, author, Garbage Land and Bottlemania Like many people, Beth Terry didn’t think an individual could have much impact on the environment. But while laid up after surgery, she read an article about the staggering amount of plastic polluting the oceans, and decided then and there to kick her plastic habit. In Plastic-Free, she shows you how you can too, providing personal anecdotes, stats about the environmental and health problems related to plastic, and individual solutions and tips on how to limit your plastic footprint. Presenting both beginner and advanced steps, Terry includes handy checklists and tables for easy reference, ways to get involved in larger community actions, and profiles of individuals—Plastic-Free Heroes—who have gone beyond personal solutions to create change on a larger scale. Fully updated for the paperback edition, Plastic-Free also includes sections on letting go of eco-guilt, strategies for coping with overwhelming problems, and ways to relate to other people who aren’t as far along on the plastic-free path. Both a practical guide and the story of a personal journey from helplessness to empowerment, Plastic-Free is a must-read for those concerned about the ongoing health and happiness of themselves, their children, and the planet.
