The renowned scientist who fundamentally changed the way we view primates and our relationship with the animal kingdom now turns her attention to an incredibly important and deeply personal issue-taking a stand for a more sustainable world. In this provocative and encouraging book, Jane Goodall sounds a clarion call to Western society, urging us to take a hard look at the food we produce and consume-and showing us how easy it is to create positive change.
With a firm but gentle touch, Dr. Goodall paints a global landscape in which corporations own the rainwater, patent the earth's seeds, and give birth to mysterious "Frankenfoods." This isn't science fiction; it's reality. But it's a reality we can repair. Offering her hopeful, stirring vision, Goodall argues convincingly that each individual can make a difference. She introduces us to inspiring everyday heroes like Percy Schmeiser, a third-generation farmer who fought Monsanto and won; Jose Bove and the Mowing Brigade, French activists who stage dramatic protests against genetically modified crops; and John Mackey, the founder and CEO of Whole Foods, who changed his store's policy to sell only ethically raised animal products.
Most valuable of all, Goodall offers simple strategies each of us can employ to foster a sustainable society. It doesn't take much to turn the tide. By using water filters, eating organic, shopping at farmers' markets, drinking shade-grown coffee, and taking other mindful measures, we can all do our part to reclaim our food, our health, and our planet. And we can start now. Brilliant, empowering, and irrepressibly optimistic, HARVEST FOR HOPE is one of the most crucial works of our age. If we follow Goodall's sound advice, we just might save ourselves before it's too late.
