Food from the Radical Center: Healing Our Land and Communities
(2018) by Gary Nabhan
"In Food from the Radical Center (2018), Gary Nabhan tells the stories of diverse communities who are getting their hands dirty and bringing back North America's unique fare: bison, sturgeon, camas lilies, ancient grains, turkeys, and more. These efforts have united people from the left and right, rural and urban, faith-based and science-based, in game-changing collaborations. Their successes are extraordinary by any measure, whether economic, ecological, or social." quoted from Amazon.com.
Nabhan is an Agricultural Ecologist, Ethnobotanist, Ecumenical Franciscan Brother, and author whose work has focused primarily on the interaction of biodiversity and cultural diversity of the arid binational Southwest. A first generation Lebanese-American raised in Gary, IN., he is considered a pioneer in the local food movement.
There is a Cincinnati Public Library copy. It can be ordered from Island Press, the leading publisher on environmental issues in the U.S., for $30. There are copies available on Better World Books (a B corp) and Abe Books (a subsidiary of Amazon) for about $10.
