A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Anyone who travels California s byways sees the many faces of agriculture. A huge entwined business, farming and ranching are the state s dominant land use. Yet few Californians understand what animals and crops are raised or how agriculture reflects our relationship with nature. This fascinating and gorgeously illustrated field guide gathers essential information about agriculture and its environmental context, and answers the perennial question posed by California travelers: What is that, and why is it growing here? . Paul F. Starrs lively text explores the full range of the state s agriculture, deftly balancing agribusiness triumphalism with the pride of boutique producers, sketching meanwhile the darker shadows that can envelop California farming. Documented with diverse maps and Peter Goin s insightful photographs, A Field Guide to California Agriculture captures the industry s energy and ingenuity and its wildly diverse iconography, from the mysteries of forbidden crops (like marijuana) to the majesties of scale in food production.

Critique:

"Required reading for every serious foodie, gardener and farmer's market junkie ... The summer beach read of academic writing. " Los Angeles Times Book Review 20100629 "Designed for portability, this stout little tome easily fits into a glove box, ready for retrieval when a passing agricultural landscape baffles. But being such an engaging companion, the Field Guide to California Agriculture will more than likely migrate to your bedside reading table." -- Julie Foster Zyzzyva 20120320 "Full of useful and interesting information about the crops and livestock you might encounter while driving around California." -- A.B. Westways Magazine 20110601 "A book that brings to life the vast panorama of the state's farming industry and its fascinating historical, ecological and ethnocultural overtones... Reading its richly informative commentary out loud while admiring almonds and citrus in blossom on a drive down Interstate 5 is a refreshing alternative to video game stupor." -- Laura Thomas San Francisco Chronicle 20120422
