Review quote

Starred Review in the September issue of Booklist *STAR*Farm Aid: A Celebration of the American Family Farm. Ed. by Holly George-Warren. Sept. 2005. 256p. illus. index. Rodale, $35 (1-59486-285-0). 781.64. Twenty years ago, Willie Nelson decided to have an all-star, open-air concert to call attention to the plight of American family farmers, then being squeezed off the land in record numbers by low commodity prices and high short-term indebtedness. In less than a month, the first Farm Aid concert occurred, and a long-term support system was born. The most impressive organizational fact in this lavish, compelling overview is that Farm Aid has only seven employees, not counting any of the musicians and technicians involved in the concerts, who all donate their work. The most impressive revelation about Farm Aid for most readers will probably be the range of work by and on behalf of farmers that it supports between concerts.
