Renewing America’s Food Traditions

Book Digest In case it has escaped you, there are foodstuffs that are endangered by the toxicity of post-industrialism. In any case, among other contributions of this book are a list of more than 1,000 such perishables, and successes of “eater-based” conservation constituencies in “food recovery, habitat restoration, and market revitalization” efforts. These subjects may seem prosaic, but what they describe is a vital and important set of initiatives that will loom ever larger as we realize life without bountiful carbon fuels. Did I mention this book is lavishly illustrated with mouth-watering color photographs?
